We all use YouTube either just for entertainment sake or to learn new tricks. Of course, there is something that entertains every age group of viewers.
But there is no denial that the most annoying restriction on YouTube is it automatically pauses the video whenever you navigate to another screen or app. The issue is common for both Android and iOS users.
So here we have shared 4 simple methods to avoid this issue completely.
Method 1. Completely Free Method
The easiest and simplest way to keep YouTube videos running in the background is to use the website on FireFox browser rather than using the app. This web-browser allows you to continue to listen to YouTube videos with the screen off mode or while doing something else on your device.
Method 2. Subscribe to YouTube Red
The alternate to the above trick is subscribe YouTube Red. Although you have to pay Rs. 666.83 every month to continue your subscription, it comes with the feature called 'Background Play' which allows your video play in the background when you open different apps or turn the screen off.
As an added bonus, it also removes YouTube ads and includes a subscription to Google Play Music. If you already have Google Play Music, then you'll get YouTube Red for free.
Method 3. Download Awesome Pop-up Video App on Android Smartphone
Another option for playing YouTube videos in the background of Android smartphones is to download this Awesome Pop-up Video app from Google Play Store. This app redirects all YouTube videos in it so that you can enjoy your video streaming uninterrupted.
To be more specific, rather than playing videos in the background, this app plays them in a small and movable pop-up window, which can be dragged to the side of the screen to achieve a similar effect.
Method 4: For iPhone User
Open Safari browser>Open YouTube website>Choose video>Play it>press the Home button> bring Control Center>Click on Play button. The video will resume. So no need to use any third party app or paid subscription.
