How to Listen to Music on YouTube With The Screen off Without Root

Surely it has happened to you that you wanted to listen to music from YouTube with your mobile and when the screen was turned off, the sound stopped. Well with this simple trick that does not need root you will forget about this problem.

You get to do anything; Study, work … And you  need music. And the problem is that you’ve always been on YouTube, you need a playlist of your own. You open the application on your mobile and you listen. Problem:  you turn off the screen and stop the  video. And yes, it’s annoying to have the application open to work, so you move to another way of listening to music, even if it annoys you. How to solve this problem?

Well thanks to sites as necessary on the internet as Reddit, we have discovered a simple trick with which you can play YouTube videos with the screen of your cellphone turned off. The only drawback of this method is that you will need almost obligatory headphone  with integrated buttons. What do I mean? Now you will see.

While it is true that there are other ways to play music more easily, it is not the first time that I see someone obligatorily resort to YouTube to listen to songs or videos that otherwise would be impossible to hear. This trick has been successfully tested with Apple Earpods, Samsung headsets and personal headsets with Sony MDR-XB450ap.

The trick is simple: you must use the buttons dedicated to the playback (play, pause …) of your headphone to play the video. Surely with defined steps is clear:

  • Play a video on YouTube, making sure you’ve passed the appropriate ad.
  • Press the lock button on your device.
  • Connect some helmets with play buttons like the ones already mentioned, or some that are compatible.
  • Press “Play” with your helmets, and  voila! The video in question will be played with the screen off.
