Here Is A Little Trick You Can Use to Watch YouTube Videos in the Background.

At the moment, I spend most of my time on Chrome and YouTube.

So, you can understand why I try to look for ways to enhance my experience on these platforms. One of such ways is multitasking on YouTube. You know, watching a video while doing other important stuff?! Now, there are several ways to go about this, the popular but annoying way is to use your Android browser, in my case, Chrome, to open YouTube in a desktop mode, and trust me: I came across two better ways to go about this in 2017 and it has changed my YouTube experience since then. The first is using the multi-window feature that comes with Android Nougat and above. All you have to do is open YouTube then long press on the recent app button to launch the multi-window. To make the video play in the background, just press the home button! Now the second method is even cooler, but you need an app! Flytube! (Download here, it’s about 11mb in size). Like the name implies, this allows you to float any video on YouTube. So, you can watch your favorite YouTube video (For me, that would be Childish Gambino’s This is America song) And still go about your Android business.

Another thing I love about FlyTube is the ability to loop video, something you can’t do on YouTube for Android.

This is really important (especially for someone like me) because I love listening to the same audio on repeat so I can get bored of it and move on to the next one. Weird? Anyway, which is your favorite method?
