YouTube is the internet’s most popular video-sharing platform by Google. Almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day and more than half of YouTube views come from mobile devices.
When you are using YouTube, You can not play any video in the background by leaving the app. Unless you have a YouTube RED subscription, YouTube only plays as a foreground app, That’s mean you can’t use your phone and listen to music at the same time.
Let’s try this on Android,
- Open www.youtube.com in the Chrome browser.
- In the (three-dot) menu at the top right, check the “Request desktop site” box.
- Go to the video you want to listen to and press play.
- Exit the Chrome app and you’ll be able to resume playback from the notification bar.
