Quibi — a new streaming video subscription service — offers a lot of short-form content intended to be watched on your phone while on the go.
However, it’s also possible to stream Quibi to your TV using Chromecast and AirPlay. If you know you’re going to be somewhere that you don’t have access to the internet, you can download Quibi videos for offline viewing.
When it comes to downloading on Quibi, there are a couple of caveats. First, not all videos are available for download. If you tap the three dots and don’t see a download option, that content can’t be downloaded.
Second, not all videos will remain permanently on your phone after downloading. Some videos will expire and disappear from the Downloads folder, so don’t wait too long to watch anything you’ve downloaded.
If you’re on an ad-supported Quibi subscription, you may need to watch a short ad before the download begins. Otherwise, the video will download right away.
When you’re ready to download on Quibi, here’s how to do it.
