YouTube is the largest video sharing website with lots of content. But still, YouTube doesn’t give many basic features like repeat option, background playback and it is still not friendly for music lovers.
You can get many missing features in Youtube by using Modded Youtube APKs. There are plenty of them but only a few of them can replace the official Youtube app.
In this post, I will show you 3 best Modded Youtube APKs which give all useful and essential features.

Best Modded Youtube APKs: Download Videos, Block Ads, Background Playback
Youtube Vanced is a complete Youtube app with all essential and useful features which are missing in the official Youtube app.
It was started as Xposed Module “Youtube background Playback” (iYTBP) which plays the Youtube videos in the background. Then it was converted into Youtube Vanced which is a Modded Youtube app with all features inbuilt.
The UX is the same as the Youtube app. Apart from a custom Logo, the whole app is the same as the official Youtube app.
Some of the best features of Youtube Vacned are Background Playback, PiP, Repeat Video, and Adblocker. And if you listen to music on Youtube then these features are pure gold for you.
Here is the List of complete features of Youtube Vanced features:
- Blocks all YouTube ADs
- Background playback feature
- Force VP9(or HDR) or vice versa
- Override Max Resolution
- Pinch to Zoom on all devices
- Casting togglable
- Togglable Theme (White/Dark/Black)
- PiP (Oreo Only)
- Video window new or old style
- Repeat video feature
- Preferred Resolution & Speed feature
- Swipe controls for Volume and Brightness
How to install Youtube Vanced:
There are 3 ways to install the app: For Non-rooted Device, For Rooted Device by TWRP and By Installing a Magisk Module
To Install on Youtube Vanced on the Non-rooted device: Download and Install the Youtube Vanced and MicroG
For Rooted Device, We prefer Using Magisk Manager or use the Non-rooted method
To Install by using Magisk, Go into the Magisk Manager -> Downloads -> Youtube Vanced. After Installation, Restart the Device.
If you use Youtube to listen to Songs then this app is for you. Ymusic only loads the Audio of a Video and it can play it in the Background.
Ymusic is based Jockey music player which makes it a Lightweight Media player with the Material Design. The Interface is Customization with a lot of Colors to choose from.
You can also download the Audio or Video. There is a section for Trending Video in your Region.
Here are the Features of Ymusic:
- Play YouTube video in the background
- Download YouTube Videos in variety formats: mp3, opus, WebM, mp4 etc.
- Search music video
- Browse trending music videos
- Based on Jockey Media Player
- Auto download album art
- Last.fm integration for retrieving artist images and descriptions
- Smart Playlists with fully customizable rules
- Gapless playback
- Home screen widgets
OGYoutube is the most feature rich app on this list. There are many useful features like Video Downloads, Block Ads, Background play, Subtitles Download and more.
The reason that OGYoutube is not at the top of this list is that of its UX. The interface of OGYoutube doesn’t look and feel polished. The Download buttons and overall interface just fail to impress. The app is not Updated since May 2017 and it still gives the old Youtube Interface.
Although OGYoutube allows you to Download videos which Youtube Vanced lacks, I still prefer YouTube Vanced over OGYoutube because of its cleaner Interface and Fast Updates.
Here is the list of features of OGYoutube:
- Multiple Video Downloads
- Background Playback & Popup Window
- Play all qualities
- You can download only the Audio of a Video
- Subtitles Download
- Seek Controls (Position, Volume, Brightness)
