Background play

Continue playing videos on your mobile device while using other apps or when your screen is off. This benefit works on the YouTube, YouTube Music, YouTube Gaming, and YouTube Kids mobile apps, if they're available in your location.

Watch original series and movies from some of YouTube’s biggest creators, right when they are released and at no extra cost.
