With that being said, we will explain to use how to install YouTube Vanced app on your Android phone and explain how to use some of the app features that will be beneficial to you as you make yourself familiar with the app.
YouTube Vanced stood the test of time, and a lot of developers have come together to make it easy to stream and watch different channels on YouTube without advertisement. Literarily, you cannot play YouTube videos in the background section of your phone without using the Chrome browser.
This is not even possible if you are using the YouTube app on your phone. Therefore, there is a need for a new invention, according to the app developers.

YouTube Vanced and MicroG
YouTube Vanced and MicroG are two different applications from different developers serving a different purpose. However, if you must sign in to the YouTube Vanced APK to watch and play YouTube videos and music in the background section of your phone, you need a hand from the MicroG APK app.
This implies that without the MicroG APK, you can download YouTube Vanced app and watch YouTube videos and different channels, but you cannot sign in to your YouTube account using your Gmail account or other email service providers.
How to Install YouTube Vanced APK
You first need to download the APK app and install it on your phone. However, we will also want you to download the MicroG APK if you ever want to sign in to your YouTube account. It’s not compulsory, though, as you do not need to sign in to the app to download and play YouTube video in the background of the app.
Enable Unknown Sources
APK files required all Android users to enable unknown sources to be able to install all app mod versions. And YouTube Vanced mod version is not different. Therefore, to avoid the APK file might contain unsafe contents when you are trying to install the Vanced APK app, you must enable unknown sources.
- Go to your phone settings.
- Click on the “Security” option.
- Find and click “unknown sources”.
- Read the pop-up and click “OK”.
The approach to enable unknown sources differs from phone to phone and from OS version to OS version. However, in most popular smartphones, the same approach works on all devices, so you might want to stick to the general approach to enable unknown sources on your Android to install APK apps, including the Vanced APK.
