YMusic - it is such an incredible app. You can play Youtube videos in the background. It is the best app if you don't have YouTube Premium.

Also, music will be in play after turning the screen off. You can download videos from youtube in many formats including mp3 ;)

@khangneovip can we download opus format audio in .ogg container in your app? Just downloaded the app after seeing opus format support in app description but not finding any opus format download option within app's other formats download section.

I didn't find any relevant information in this thread also.

I accidently hit clear history. Is there a way to get it back or to find the history of songs I listened to?

Try GetTube

GetTube Also Fatch Songs Cover Art at 720P Resolution For MP3 Songs
While Ymusic Do only At 360p

Looks like that app stopped working completely for a lot of people and the developer hasn't updated it.

Can you add support to download playlists that exceed 100 songs, must there be a limit?

Can you also add the option to download HDR videos.

Last suggestion, an option to download songs in the OPUS codec.

I can't link it to the Google account, I think Google has changed something
solved: it is necessary to have chrome installed

App now shows network error.

Edit: Never mind. It was an issue on my end. I updated from Android 9 to Android 10. I think that messed something up with the app as clearing the data fixed it now.

This app is great. Wanna thank the developer.
Some suggestions which could improve this app: Try to add spotify library or from other streaming apps.. Custom playlist is difficult to create in this app. Add favorites tab where user can see their liked songs. Also I can see a lot of other videos which are not related to music. I know this is because of the youtube algorithm. But anyway just a few suggestions.

    So today I get a notification saying if I want an ad-free experience, I have to contribute some of my idle device's resources or deal with ads. It says it won't use the resources if the battery is too low. Otherwise you have to pay a premium. This app sure is going down hill from the developer. The app picks up all of these live songs which come out screeching. You can listen to one song from a band and then the next one is live and you hear the audience yelling. So annoying!
