These YouTube hacks will allow you to play your music, while doing other activities too.
Everyone with a smartphone has experienced the frustration of wanting to play videos on YouTube while using other apps.

Android: Open up YouTube in Chrome. Click on the menu button-top right, 3 dots. Check the “request desktop site” box. Open a video and accept any warnings that pop up saying YouTube will send notifications. Close Chrome, press play in the notifications menu, and boom, videos will now play in the background.
iOS: Download the Dolphin web browser. Open up a video with Dolphin, exit the browser, press play in the iOS menu and Bob’s your uncle. This no-fuss method does not require a notification agreement, making for smooth listening.
Both of the above-mentioned methods allow you use of YouTube as an audio service, perfect for live sets, albums and singles.
