YouTube has a huge collection of videos including millions of music videos. Most of us use Youtube app for android to view and stream those videos especially Music videos. But the limitation in YouToube app is you can’t play or listen to the videos on the background. Google is introducing this feature as Google music key (A ad-free, offline, play in background experience for Youtube) but it invite only and Google is planning to charge a subscription fee. I’m sure that some apps that require root permissions provide background play for YouTube. So is there any way to play Youtube videos in the background in android without root access? yes. there is a way.
How to Play YouTube videos on background
