Get started with YouTube Go

On June 24, 2020, we'll begin pre-installing the YouTube main app on Android (Go edition) devices, instead of pre-installing the YouTube Go app. We'll also remove the YouTube Go app from the Google Play Store. Current YouTube Go users will not experience any service or support interruptions.
Note: This feature may not be available with supervised experiences on YouTube. Learn more here.
