5 Best Apps to Play YouTube in The Background

Youtube videos in background

When it comes to the best free video streaming platform, undoubtedly YouTube is the first thing that comes to mind. We can notice lots of people around us using YouTube on a daily basis. YouTube gained popularity by becoming the home of solutions of approximately 80% of our questions. On the other hand, it offers users a wide variety of interesting content.

Since everyone is aware of the fact that YouTube does not support background playback. It gets a little annoying when you want to read a blog while watching your favorite podcasts on the platform. Yes, Split-screen is an option for Android users but, Hey! Not all apps support split-screen and you are not free to use the screen the way you want in “split-screen” mode. Another idle way of playing YouTube videos in the background is to use apps that let you play the app in a floating pop up window. Below I have made up a list of the best Youtube Apps that let you play videos in a pop-up window.

  • YouTube Vanced 


Undoubtedly, YouTube Vanced is for users looking for a convenient and effective way to play YouTube videos in the background. The app allows users to play YouTube videos on the background of their Android devices in the from pop-up windows, users are also able to customize the player. Though, the drawback of the app is that one won’t be able to sign-in their YouTube account and watch videos from their Home Feed. But, being free on the Play store makes it an ideal choice for the task.

  • Awesome Pop-Up Video

This app will allow you to play videos in a pop-up window. You can watch popular videos through homepage from the YouTube or you can search your favorite videos, or paste the link from the app along with other features like pop-up themes & settings, downloading the video and much more. On the other hand, playbacks of videos directly from Twitter and Facebook aren’t supported.
  • Free music YouTube: stream

This yet another app for users fond of watching videos and listening to music all the time. The app lets you search for your favorite artist, create your own playlist and discover new music genres. However, the app allows you to watch videos on YouTube without having to stay on the screen. Also, the widgets offered by the app eliminates the hassle of always opening the app in orders to get your favorite video playing (allows you to play the YouTube video directly from the home screen)
  • Torch Music

Torch Music only supports the Audio form of YouTube. With the help of Torch Music, you can easily search for the artist, song or album name. Once you find it, you will be able to play the song even after minimizing the app or lock your phone. According to my user experience, the app only contains songs by popular artists. And the app will not work if you are looking forward to listening to YouTube podcast or other less popular channels.
  • Floating Tube

Similar to the above-mentioned apps, Floating Tube is also capable of playing YouTube videos in the background of the screen but opens in the form of a pop-up window even if your screen is off. You can do your other things along with listening to video or music at the same time. However, the constant ads of the App are quite annoying but, upgrading to non-ad versions requires you to pay.
