YouTube is used by more than a billion people worldwide, and it is one of the most popular video platforms available.
Apart from millions of people downloading videos on different topics, YouTube is also a place where Music labels and Artists put up their content on YouTube for consumption.
I personally no a dozen people who use YouTube as a music player to listen to music. Even the gym I go to workout please songs from YouTube.
The mobile screen is always on, and the phone is on the charge, because, when the display is on, the mobile phone is not going to last longer.
It is one of the cases where you would find playing YouTube videos in background useful.
But there are other uses as well, such as multitasking, so that you continue using your mobile phone while playing the video in the background.
So let’s get straight to the answer how you can play YouTube videos in the background on your Android mobile.
YouTube Vanced is a modded APK of the YouTube app, which unlocks a bunch of features that are not available in the native YouTube app.
You can play videos in a pop-up window, which floats over your mobile phone screen. You can also play videos in the background while doing other things on your mobile phone. The video controls appear in the notification area.
You can play the videos even when your screen is turned off.
The best thing about the YouTube Vanced app is, it is also available for non-rooted users, which means you do not have to go through all the hassles of rooting your Android mobile.
The user interface of the app is pretty much like the YouTube native app so you will feel like home.
To make it work, you need to install an additional app called MicroG. It would allow you to login into your Gmail account. If you do not want to login into your Gmail account, you don’t even have to install MicroG
But, you can completely replace the native YouTube app by going to its settings page and disabling it from your mobile phone (you cannot uninstall YouTube app because it comes bundled with the Android OS).
Once the native YouTube app is disabled, and you have installed YouTube Vanced, and MicroG, u can log in to your Gmail account, and the YouTube Vanced app will work exactly like the native YouTube app.
YouTube Vanced can be used for a variety of things, such as listening to music while playing the videos in the background for actually watching videos in a little pop-up window while doing anything else on your mobile phone.
But if you strictly want to use YouTube as a music player, you should instead install my music app.
