Many users usually listen music via YouTube and that platform has endless hours of playing any kind of music genre for all styles.

It is quite common to see at parties or family gatherings or with friends that musicalization is due to YouTube. In addition to being free, unlike other platforms such as Spotify, you have the advantage of being able to adjust the video quality , which is great for those weak connections, so that the music does not stop because of this factor.

However, despite the multiple benefits that the platform has, it has one major problem that many users have claimed. And is that YouTube cannot be played via mobile devices with it screen off .

This means that you necessarily have to have the application open for it to work, thus preventing you from using your phone to perform any other functions.

Despite this, what appears to be the solution to this problem has emerged. This is Brave Browser , a browser for Android which, in addition to being fast and secure, allows you to listen to YouTube with the screen off.

      What is BraveBrowser?

      Brave Browser is a browser per Android based on the Chromium browser, which is very similar to Chrome.

      This browser is characterized by being quite fast and also by being able to block annoying advertisements that appear unexpectedly, as well as being able to optimize the battery of your device.

      However, the most remarkable thing about this browser is that it can play YouTube in background , so you can listen to music without having to open the application.

      This is very useful for doing other activities with yours cellular and also significantly extends the battery of your device. You can get Brave Browser from Playstore or get the apk in any browser.

      How to play YouTube in the background with Brave Browser?

      Before you can play youtube with screen off , you have to do a little configuration in the browser. To do this you need to follow the steps below:

      After configuring these settings, you will be able to play songs on YouTube in the background and with the screen off. To do this, you just need to go to YouTube in the Brave Browser and select any song of your choice.

      Once the song has started playing, you will have to press the Home button on your mobile to exit YouTube without closing it. Next you will need to go to notifications from your mobile and you can observe some YouTube options, among which you can find: Play, next song, previous song.

      Just hit play to allow YouTube to start play in the background. You can also turn off your device's screen without any problems and YouTube will continue playing as normal.

      Play YouTube in the background without Brave Browser

      There is another alternative where the Brave Browser browser is not needed. In fact, all you have to do is log into Chrome and configure a few simple settings.

      To do this you must log into Chrome from your mobile and press the 3 vertical dots option located in the upper right corner. The next thing will be to select the option "Request web desktop".

      After that we can go to YouTube and activate notifications. At this point we will have to choose the song we want to play and once the playback has started, you can press the Home button on your mobile. Finally you will have to see the notifications and you will notice that you can riprodurre YouTube in background.

      Other slightly more advanced devices have the multitasking option, in which you can split your mobile screen in two and therefore be able to play YouTube in the background while you perform any other activity.
