YouTube Vanced Review

I hate advertisements due to good user experience.

Because of ads, I quit to see TV shows and switch to YouTube for videos. YouTube was my first choice but I get irritated as they started to show multiple ads in a single video nowadays.

I was looking for an alternative entertainment source that can be used through my phone.

But, all other streaming website/application was not free like YouTube. Another great problem was no background service in the original YouTube app.

Sometimes I wanted to use my Facebook with my favorite song, but if I opened the Facebook app then YouTube would stop.

One day I heard about the YouTube Vanced application, which is a customized version of the original app. then I install YouTube Vanced as it did not require any rooted (It didn’t require rooted devices) phone.

You can also download YouTube Vanced app on non root smartphone.

BTW, after using it, I felt that the developer made this app listening to my requirements. It makes my entertainment zone more comfortable.
