Instructions for using the app on Android

  1. How to turn on Dark Theme

Step 1. Click on the Account icon in the top right corner of the screen from the main application interface. Here, we will select the Settings item as shown below. 

Step 2. Unlike YouTube, we will have one more item, Vanced Settings, to customize the main functions when using the app. Next to activate Dark Theme on this app, click on Layout Settings. 

Step 3. We will search and enable the Black Theme feature to use YouTube Vanced with black screen mode. 

  1. How to automatically playback videos

Step 1. You continue to access the Settings section and select Vanced Settings. Next, we will select the Misc item. 

Step 2. At this time, we will see the Auto Repeat feature and please enable it. It will help you to automatically playback YouTube videos. You can also activate the Auto Repeat – Background Play feature to automatically playback YouTube videos running in the background on the app (minimized video). 

In addition, in Vanced Settings, there are some other interesting things like: 

– Codec Override: Forced to run video in VP9 decoder, YouTube’s compression standard, and making watching videos smoother and more stable.

– Video Settings: Customize default resolution, default speed, automatically turn on subtitles when watching videos.

Can we download videos from the app?

Unfortunately, YouTube Vanced doesn’t allow users to download videos from the app. This means you just can watch the videos on the app with the internet connection.


The above is a tutorial on how to use YouTube Vanced in the Android operating system completely free of charge. I wish you to use it professionally. If you find the article useful, don’t forget to share it with your friends!
