Listen to YouTube with the Screen OFF

  • After the last update this option doesn't work

  • @osblins We have not made any changes in this area, it may be Youtube app where this feature is added now to premium user. you may try using Desktop mode for listening music with screen off.

  • I wonder if the options "Restrict Background Data" or "Restrict Background Activity" could play a role here.

    Is one or both of these options enabled for this app?

  • I have the same experience , since around 4 weeks now , playing YouTube in desktop mode is not possible without screen on. very inconvenient for the safety of my phone and data's on it. what i also recognized , there is no play button, the triangle, anymore .only the stop button the square.
    I would really appreciate a solution for it.
