One of the most frustrating restrictions on YouTube for Android is the automatic pauses of videos when you navigate to another screen or when opening another application on your handset. However, they are ways to solve this.
One of the most cost effective and easiest solutions is using the Firefox browser rather than the usual YouTube application. This browser lets you continue listening to a video with the screen off or while doing something else on your handset.
YouTube Red is also another way of playing videos in the background. You just have to purchase the YouTube Red subscription that costs $9.99 per month. It comes with a feature called ‘Background Play’ that lets your video play while in the background when you turn off the screen or open different application.
YouTube Red has no ads and it also includes a subscription to the Google Play Music. In case you have the Google Play Music, you will be able to get the YouTube Red for free.
Awesome Pop-up Video Pro application
Another solution for playing YouTube in the background is the Awesome Pop-up Video Pro. You should not that this app only allows you to play YouTube videos in the background, but it won’t allow you to play videos when the screen is off.
With this application, you will only be required to play a few bucks for one time purchase instead of monthly payments as in YouTube Red.
