    Default YouTube preloading feature gone after update to version 5.6.31?

    So I had just started using the preloading feature on my HTC One M8 so that I could watch my YouTube subscriptions when I wasn't on Wi-Fi. Today, I got an update to the YouTube app to version 5.6.31. Now, all the preloading has stopped and the preloading option isn't even listed in the settings menu anymore. Did they just decide to remove this feature? If so, that really sucks, because I loved it. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    You're right... looks like it. That's too bad. The support link for preloading videos on mobile no longer works, but if you look in the "Mobile" section of the "Known Issues" page, you'll find this:

    Preloading no longer available on version 5.6 and above

    To make way for some upcoming mobile features, we removed the preloading feature on the YouTube app for Android. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we look forward to bringing these new features to you.
    I suggest visiting the link and clicking the "Report this issue" button.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Good to know I'm not the only one experiencing this. I wonder what the new features are that would cause them to remove preloading. Maybe something better that will allow offline viewing? I doubt it, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. Still, it's kind of lame that they removed the feature before implementing something new to take its place.
