Free background player for YouTube
YMusic is a free application that allows you to play YouTube music and YouTube videos while browsing or playing on your phone. One reason for searching for third-party YT video players on Android is the background play. While Mi Browser, NewPipe, and Vanced are a few apps with that functionality, YMusic has additional advantages.
It focuses on the “music library” feature, drawing the artist and album information from last.fm. The app creates an easily searchable list of songs for you to enjoy, thus acting as a music player. Besides, it also makes smart playlists and home screen widgets.
Slow network - no problem
The top feature of YMusic is its ability to play any video from YouTube while you’re having slow or problematic connectivity. The app also claims 90% data savings due to the compression algorithm. The latter also lets you download YouTube content in any audio and video format.
Artist and album integration for easier search
As we mentioned earlier, another feature of YMusic is capturing the artist and album information to bring you a neat music library. This makes the app a fun experience, where you don’t have to make manual changes to the song titles and even arrange them.
Customization and AI
The app also learns your habits due to its powerful AI. It delivers intelligent playlists and makes suggestions, pulling content based on your taste and location. You can also search for trending videos and watch them ad-free.
Last but not least, you can choose custom equalizers to your musical ear and bend the app interface to your taste with 80+ color schemes.
YMusic is a safe application and has been operating without privacy issues. However, one instance of an “unauthorized messaging” alert came from Google, which got a quick fix from the developer.
You can download the YMusic apk from its official site and allow third-party app installation to start using it on your Android device.
