We all sought Youtube Premium features but don’t want to pay for it. YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red) is a paid subscription service offered by YouTube. The service includes ad-free access to content across the service, as well as access to premium YouTube Originals programming produced in collaboration with the site’s creators, downloading videos and background playback of videos on mobile devices, and access to YouTube Music.
Well if you want to use most features of the Youtube premium for free then you are at the right place.
What is Youtube Vanced?
Youtube Vanced is a platform that provides most of the premium features and some very interesting additional features for absolutely free. YouTube Vanced is the stock Android YouTube app, but better! Includes adblocking, true amoled dark mode and a lot more.
Why it is Better than Original Youtube?
Here are the below features which make Youtube Vanced a better alternative or rather a competitor of youtube.
Main Highlight Features:
- Features the option of an amoled black theme to reduce eye and battery strain.
- Allows to play videos in the background
- Blocks All videos ads and allows you to play videos in the background or in Picture in Picture (only on android 8.0 and up)
- Swipe controls allow you to control brightness and volume like how it is in other video player apps such as VLC or MX Player (with configurable padding).
- Also read:
- New auto-repeat feature allowing you to enjoy videos like tiktoks/vines or simply continue playing a song on loop.
- Not liking the new comments section or miniplayer? Those also can be toggled to the tablet versions which are very similar to the old version (albeit slightly buggy).
Add Forced Customization:
- Allows you to force HDR playback or turn off 60fps if you prefer a cinematic experience.
- Force the default video resolution as high or low as you want and even override your screen resolution for that sharp 4k playback on any device, and also allows you to change the default playback speed to anywhere between 0.25x to 2x (assuming your device is powerful enough)
- Allows you to toggle home ads, most UI ads, Merchandise ads, Community posts, Movie upselling, compact banner info (such as the covid info), remove comments entirely, compact movie, movie shelf removal, and many more!
Remove Sponsor Block
- Features the ability to skip annoying sponsor segments (where a YouTuber advertises a service or product in the middle of a video). It also supports skipping other categories, such as intros, outros, and reminders to subscribe.
There are many more features which you can explore by yourself but before that you must understand how to install this application.
