What is UC Browser?

UC Browser is a mobile browser commonly known by the name 'UCWeb'. It is super fast and reliable browser. It is available for most of the mobile platforms like Android, Windows Phone, Java, Symbian, and iOS. This popular mobile browser is owned by Alibaba, a China-based company. It surpassed Opera, another browser for mobile platforms, with its 500 million quarterly active users mark. It supports major 11 languages.

The UC 10.1 is now released for Android based Smartphones. let us see what major changes we will see in this release, what are the new features and how to use them.

Changes and New Features

UC for Android gives you fast All-In-One web experience.It is the best browser for most of the Internet activities like browsing websites, watching videos, playing on-line games, shopping and for social media sharing. All these at the fastest speeds. The browser plays a major role when you want to get free from boring inbuilt mobile browsers. UC gives you most of the features that inbuilt browser can't. 

It has well-organized download manager which allows you to download more files simultaneously. You can continue browsing even when the download is in progress. You can pause downloads and resume it as when you wish. It is also giving you free cloud storage by which you can download directly to your cloud space and later on your memory card. It requires you to login which is a super simple thing.

You can download web pages for offline reading. This works great when you have limited Wi-Fi or Internet availability. You can see all the parts of that web page offline like images, ads and flash contents if any.

Facebook notifications

UC introduced this time a great feature called Facebook notifications. It is real time push notification and it works great. It is not available in incognito mode. Also, it is not possible to change the profile icon at the current version of the UC. You can receive push notifications even when you exit from UC web.

How to activate this feature and receive notifications? Go to Menu > Add-on > Facebook. There click on profile and enter your username and password to log in. In the phone, action center turns on the latest Facebook notifications. By going to settings page you can turn on all kinds of FB push notifications.

To log off, just click on the profile or go to FB web page. If you want to stop notifications, just turn off the things you turned on in the notification settings page.

The official FB messenger app is a heavy application. It uses lots of RAM and slows down other apps or whole mobile. The UC app is light on phone memory and smoothly work even at the background. The best option for low-end mobiles.


The normal features which UC has can be pointed out as below,
  • Incognito browsing- By this you can browse the web in private mode. No history and no cache kept.

How To Download Videos Using Uc Browser on Android Smartphones

Here is the super tip for UC users. You can now download full online videos in your memory card and for this, you do not need any third-party software or website. 
YouTube is the most popular website for videos. But there is no official option for downloading. There are many online websites that help in this case. They can convert video and give us a download option. But it is only suitable for desktops, not for smartphones. We require a simple and direct tool that does this task quickly. Here are the steps to get started.

Download button popup on right side. Click on it to download using UC browser.

How To Download YouTube Videos Using Uc Browser

  • You have to download and install Video Downloader Add-on in your latest UC browser. 
  • This is a one-time task. So, be relaxed and install it.
  • Now go to YouTube. You can go to any video sites, but here I am focusing on YouTube only.
  • Click on the video to be downloaded and click on the play button.
  • After the page loads fully a message will pop up.
  • Click on the button to download that video at your desired location.
That's it! The only the downside of this method is the quality of video downloaded depends upon smartphone configurations. There is no option for selecting the quality of video to be downloaded.

Google did mention that the device would need and external power supply, however, did not specifically emphasize the purpose.

However video quality from a browser is not the greatest. However, QuickTime and Microsoft's Silver light are not compatible, that means web-based Netflix is off the table.

There is no storage

Google's Chromecast is not engineered to be a media storage. If you want to store some shows, you cannot, because there is no storage.
