      Hi everyone.
      I’ve always worked with an iPhone and recently bought an Android phone. One thing that bothers me when I use YouTube on my new phone is that when I play a video, I can no longer exit the app; Because the video stops playing.
      Is there a solution to this problem?

      Hello Zimma! Yes, you can play YouTube videos in the background on an Android phone. Here are the steps:

      1. Open the YouTube app on your Android phone.
      2. Start playing the video you want to watch.
      3. Press the home button on your phone. This will take you to the home screen, but the video will stop playing.
      4. To resume the video, swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications. You should see a notification for the video you were playing.
      5. Tap on the play button in the notification to resume playing the video in the background.

      Alternatively, you can use a third-party app to play YouTube videos in the background. One popular app is called “YouTube Vanced“. It is a modified version of the YouTube app that allows you to play videos in the background, as well as other features such as ad-blocking and background playback.

      I hope this helps solve your problem!
