Hi, I'm a long time AdAway user, but never posted here. As it would block Ads almost anywhere including YouTube app too I think. But now it doesn't work on YouTube app (hasn't been blocking any ads within the app for a while though), but also for Chrome it does block the ads., but the space consumed by those ads still remain as an empty, white space! Is there a way i can have them removed? Please refer to the screenshots to see what I'm talking about.
Also additional query, if there's any thing better than Adaway which will block ads for everything on my phone then please mention. I would not prefer one of those VPN rerouting type of apps though.
If you want to block ads from YouTube on your phone, you'll need a modded version of the app. Look for "Vanced YouTube" here on xda, I got it running as a Magisk module and it's working like a charm. Adblocking and some fancy additional features.
