This method is quite easy. Here you have to simply copy the YouTube videos URL to your clipboard (the video which you would like to play with screen OFF).

That’s, copy the favorite video URL and paste in YouTube mobile site on Safari browser. Now successfully play the video and go to your home screen.But, the video will stop playing now the solution for it is if you swipe up to bring the control center and tap on the play option in the bottom left and that’s it. The audio will start playing back again and now if you turn OFF your screen, the playback will continue playing.

2. Xposed Module

If you are one of those lucky and strong heart person ones who has rooted Android smart devices with Xposed framework install, then it’s time to earn benefits of it. YouTube videos Background Playback is a quite simple and easy for the Xposed module that allows to play YouYube videos in the background, and it also continues to play that perticular video even if you turn OFF your mobile screen.

3. Black Screen of Life (Most recommended)

If you are excited to know which method did I used to listen to my YouTube videos with screen OFF well it was this app that works for me.

So, there are dozens of apps on playstore that all are capable to play YouTube video in the background, but where this app gains extra marks is it lets you play YouTube videos inside the YouTube app with screen OFF yes read it out correct. Just like you want it to be as perfect as this.

Want to know the way it works is — when you block the proximity sensor ( found usually near to your front camera). This app simply turns screen black while everything that being playing on your Android keeps playing. This also even works perfectly when you, turn your phone screen facing downward. Even when the phone is in the slip pocket. I found this method to be best since it saves a lot of battery life. And it does exactly what it meant to say.

Sad to say, this app is currently not available on Google play Store, but don’t worry you can download it from its official website 🙂 .
