  • Why youtube doesn’t let you play YouTube videos in the background – YouTube is the world best video hosting website and they make money from video ads. And YouTube creator also make money from those ads which appear on their videos. So if you play a YouTube video in the background then YouTube and the creator of the video don’t get any ads on their videos; so they don’t get any revenue. That is why YouTube doesn’t let you play YouTube in Background.

 

  • How can we play YouTube in Background on Android – Do you know that YouTube will let you play videos in the background and they will also allow you to download YouTube videos? Yes, you can do such things officially if you get a YouTube Red Subscription. But it is only available in Australia, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States for 10$ a month. But if you do not belong from those countries and if you don’t want to pay YouTube  10$ a month for background playback then do the following-
    • Go to play store and Download Firefox > After install run the Firefox browser > And now Go to YouTube and turn on  Desktop Mode from the browser menu. Now play any video on YouTube and minimize the browser. Even if you minimize the firefox app or lock the screen the playback will not stop for sure.

  • So basically, what we are doing here, we are simply playing the video in the browser instead of YouTube app itself. But this process will not work for other browsers, especially for Google Chrome.

Conclusion –

So, that is it guy. Hope you learn How to Play YouTube in Background on Android. But I don’t recommend you to do so. Because if you play video in background then the creator of that video will not get paid for your views and that is a really bad thing for a YouTube creator. If you really want to play Youtube in background on android then go for the YouTube RED subscription.
