The most interesting part about YouTube Vanced is that it lets you listen to your videos in the background, even when you turn off your smartphone’s screen. That way, you can easily listen to music and even use Youtube to listen to podcasts at any moment.
Another cool feature of YouTube Vanced is that it lets you block all the ads in the videos. Of course, you can activate and deactivate that option at any moment but it’s activated by default.
YouTube Vanced is an alternative Youtube client that lets you listen to videos in the background, block ads, force resolutions, use the ‘repeat the video’ option and much more. All of that from an interface that’s identical to that of the original client.
