YouTube Premium APK: Background Play, PiP and Ad-Free

YouTube Premium APK Download for Android with Youtube ReVanced. Enjoy background play, PiP video Box, ad blocker, and log in with your Google Account.

YouTube Premium APK is a subscription-based premium service offered by YouTube that lets the user enjoy Free Music (Separate App), Ad-Free Video Experience, Background Video Play, Pop-Up Video Box, and YouTube Originals. This is something that people have been demanding for a very long. Finally, Google came up with a way to fulfill the demand by means of YouTube Premium.

Today, in this post, I will tell you about the App that lets you access all the premium features the same as YouTube Premium with the same design, UI, and G-Account Login. First, I want to make it clear that you cannot access premium features just by taking the APK from any subscribed user, as the features are inherited from the App through API and get linked to your Account once you subscribe.

The App has all the core functions of the original YouTube App with added features that will make you glued to the YT Premium App for your Android. You can sign in with your Google Account and also sync your Data with existing accounts and data to keep your info safe.

The app is not a modified or malware-injected variant of the YT app. But is a counterfeit version of YouTube Premium using the original API sourced from the premium version of the app and coding it to form a feature-rich YouTube app offering background playback and PiP videos without paying a single penny.

What is YouTube Premium (ReVanced)?

YouTube Vanced is a Premium YT App with all the features offered by subscription-based YouTube along with the same core UI and App design along with powerful features like Video and Audio Downloader directly to device storage with multiple resolution support.

YouTube Vanced announced that the application would be shut down after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Google in early 2022. Though the original Vanced is closed, many clones and mirror apps are up and running with their repo and download links available on GitHub.

Fix Installation and Other Issues

What to do if the YT App Force Closes?

If the YT app force closes after installing both YT Premium Vanced and MicroG, then you can do any of the following;

  • Close all the running apps and restart the YT app.
  • Or Restart the Phone
  • You can even Reverse the Installation Sequence e.g if you have first installed YT and then MicroG then just simply uninstall both the apps and first install MicroG followed by YT Premium, restart the phone. This will solve the issue.

What if you Face Login Issues with the App?

Note: If you are unable to login, uninstall Chrome, or Disable the Chrome App

Basically, the app is stable and there is not much we can do if the app is not working apart from Clearing the Data and Cache.

Make sure you have installed the microG App. The microG App doesn’t perform any major function by itself but assists in the normal functioning of the App.

Make sure you have granted all the permissions to YouTube under App Settings in Android.

Settings → Apps/All Apps/Manage Apps → YouTube App → Permissions (All Turn ON)

      I believe you are using the latest version of Vnaced and microG. Remove the said Google Account from your Android mobile and then Add the G-Account to Vanced. Once successfully signed in you can again add the Google Account to Android.
