There's another way for you to enjoy watching videos on YouTube, and if you are in an Ayala Mall and you have to wait for someone or just want to chillax, all you need to do is visit this YouTube Lounge and have fun streaming you fave YouTube videos with the help of a free wifi from Ayala Mall and the power streaming of YouTube Accelerator.
YouTube Lounge is a partnership of Google Philippines with Ayala Malls to introduce the fast streaming of YouTube Accelerator, create a hub for YouTube fans to meet, and also have a different YouTube experience.
Accessing the YouTube Lounge is free and all you need to is bring your mobile devices to connect to a free wifi and watch videos on YouTube

YouTube also like to remind that videos can now be saved and viewed offline.
If you are online at home and have no time to watch the videos, you can click the "Save Offline" button below the streaming box and you'll noticed that the video will be saved to your phone and it can be viewed by you anytime with or without internet connection.
