About YouTube and third-party apps

We only allow third-party apps to use our API when they follow our API Services Terms of Service. Our Terms don’t allow third-party apps to turn off ads because that prevents creators from being rewarded for their viewership. When we find an app that violates our Terms, we take appropriate action to protect our platform, creators, and viewers.

Update the YouTube app

If you use the YouTube app, make sure it’s updated to the latest version. Learn how to update the YouTube app.

Note: To continue to use YouTube without updating the app, on your mobile browser, go to m.youtube.com.

Older devices

If you still get an error message, you may have an older device or older device configuration. To continue to use YouTube without replacing your device, on your mobile browser, go to m.youtube.com.
