How To Play YouTube Video In The Background

Wouldn’t it be useful if you could check your emails or WhatsApp messages on the phone and also enjoy your favourite YouTube videos in the background at the same time?

Before Google Play Store listed a bunch of apps – uListen and SuperTube to name a few – that would let you use YouTube as a background music player but they’ve all been removed now.

No worries! All you need is Google Chrome on Android.

With this simple trick here. You can play any YouTube video, including playlists, in the background and simultaneously check your WhatsApp, gallery or Facebook feed using GOOGLE Chrome.

Use Google Chrome as Background YouTube Player

If you aren’t too inclined to download another app just to play YouTube videos, you can use the default web browser on your phone itself.

Here’s how:

  1. Open Google Chrome or the Firefox browser on your Android.
  2. Open the youtube.com website and search for any video or playlist.
  3. Go to the browser menu and choose “Desktop Site” to switch to the desktop version of the YouTube website.
  4. Tap the play button to start the YouTube video and then switch to any other app on your phone.
  5. YouTube will stop playback. No problem. Just pull down the notification bar and tap the play icon in the drawer to resume playback.

That’s it. YouTube will now play in the background while you multi-task on othet things on your phone.
