Viacom 18’s Voot has been around for a while and still is one of the few that runs an ad-supported streaming platform — for the most part. While it still has a long way to go in terms of overall popularity as well as the variety and volume of content on offer, Voot surely has a created a space for itself in the Indian market owing to the popular reality shows it streams.

How to download videos on Voot?
Downloading a video is as simple as it is on any other streaming platform. Go to the movie or an episode of the TV show you want to download and tap on the Download button (as shown below) to begin downloading the video.
