This announcement made my day. I will definitely use it for long trips and even while commuting.

Few things you need to know:

  • works only on smartphones (iOS and Android)
  • all videos have an expiration date and they will be deleted automatically afterwards
  • for ~ 1 hour of video you'll need ~280Mb for standard definition or ~ 440Mb for high definition
  • you cannot access video with your file manager (similar to Spotify offline content)
