But first of all, I would like to put a disclaimer regarding this. “Downloading YouTube videos for offline use using third party websites or software is not legal as it violates its terms of service.”

The YouTube video will be saved in the internal storage of your phone. But, the videos will not appear in your phone’s gallery or any other video player.
The downloaded videos are encrypted to play within the official YouTube app only. Each video will retain in your device for 28 days only, and you need to connect to the internet to avoid deletion.
Also in some cases, the download button is disabled and you will be asked to buy a YouTube Premium to download the video. However, the downloaded video can be played only in the YouTube app and you can’t access it in your phone’s gallery.
