Pocket-lint - On iPhone, most music apps let you play music in the background. After all, they'd be virtually useless if they couldn't. For video apps that's not the case which - again - makes sense, since you can't watch videos with your iPhone locked and the phone in standby. With YouTube, the app is a sort-of two-in-one platform that offers videos and, with that, music videos which is a surprisingly popular way to consume music these days. Now, YouTube does let you use its video app to play music in the background but there's a caveat: you need to be a Premium subscriber in order to take advantage of that feature. Of course, you can use the YouTube Music app, but again, you need to be a subscriber for that too. Thankfully, there's a workaround that enables you to play music from YouTube videos for free, in the background, and it's really not difficult to do.

- YouTube app requires subscription to play background music
YouTube is meant for video, but as most everyone has figured out by now, it's also great for music. You can find just about every deep cut imaginable on the platform — but listening to the tunes on the mobile app isn't always the most enjoyable experience. The YouTube app has one particularly egregious flaw for listeners: Playback is only available when the app is front and center on a user's screen, and it stops when you shift your attentions elsewhere and open another. I'm one of those weirdos who refuses to embrace streaming , so I turn to YouTube for one-off mobile jams. The playback problem is really grating — nothing's worse than losing all other functions of my phone for the full of Danny Brown's Really Doe when I'm at the gym. Thankfully, there are simple workarounds The Verge worked out for both Android and iOS, so you'll actually be able to use your phone while you're listening to your favorite songs. Playing YouTube jams in the background of your phone is much simpler for Android systems than iOS, which is fitting since they're both Google products.
