How to block adverts on YouTube with YouTube Vanced

To block adverts with YouTube Vanced, you simply have to install this application. By default, it comes along with the block option enabled, therefore, we don’t have to access any settings menu or modify any of the app’s parameters.

YouTube Vanced is a version of the YouTube client developed upon the original application and that offers us three different versions:

  • Client for non-rooted devices.
  • Client for rooted devices.
  • Client for rooted devices with Magisk.

The main feature of this app is to be able to watch videos without adverts, although some people also miss the possibility to download those videos to their devices to be able to watch them offline, a function which isn’t included (for such purpose, you should resort to other tools of the likes of TubeMate). Despite the latter, you won’t find the app on Google Play, precisely because of its functions to block adverts which obviously go against the company’s business. That’s why you’ll have to download its APK from Malavida.

Amongst the different YouTube alternatives, this one of our favorites, especially because visually it isn’t too different to the original one and it offers us a series of rather interesting functions beyond the possibility to block adverts. We have to point out the following features:

  • Possibility to play videos in the background (which is perfect to use the app as an alternative to paid music players of the likes of Spotify or Deezer).
  • Maximum resolution enabled by default when playing contents.
  • Possibility to zoom in and out of videos.
  • Automatic replay function.
  • Different themes to customize the interface.
