If you are an avid Youtube user, you must have felt at some point that something seems inconvenient. For instance, you are unable to play videos in the background or without ads. We all wish we would watch our favorite videos without any hassles. The above-mentioned perks are obviously preferred. So, what should you do to enjoy your favorite streaming apps with absolute flawlessness? YouTube Red is the answer to all your queries.
It is a streaming service just like YouTube, but with some additional benefits. Apart from playing videos in the background, you get to play around with other features. Some of them include modifying the resolution settings and Picture in Picture. The regular YouTube Red costs $10/month which can break the bank to a great extent. Therefore, it is viable to look for alternatives and versions that are free of cost. Fortunately, there are ways in which users can trick YouTube into thinking that he or she is YouTube Red subscriber.
How To Get YouTube Red For Free
1. Enable the installation of unknown apps
It is mandatory to allow the installation of apps from unknown sources to gain free access to YouTube Red. If you don’t enable this option, you won’t be able to install the NewPipe app which is an important condition to use YouTube Red without troubles.
2. Install NewPipe

3. Modify the Settings
When you use mobile data, there are certain limits that you might have to impose on the resolution of the screen. You can lower the resolution by modifying the settings.
4. Watch whatever you want
When you are a subscribed YouTube Red user, you have access to all the original content over there. Tap on the search box on the right-hand side of the screen. Type what you wish to see and press enter. Tap on the video you want to watch and it will start playing.
Think about how frustrating ads can be in situations where we are focus driven and are about to watch a relevant video. Moreover, sometimes users wish that they are able to hear the sound of the audio even when their screen is off while using YouTube. There are some downsides such as a 30 days restriction period for watching your downloaded media. You can also not watch videos in the exact resolution you desire. This can be a little frustrating but the pros outweigh the cons. Although you should know that for paid subscriptions, you will continue to see ads despite being a YouTube Red subscriber. Once you get the gist of all the above-mentioned steps, you are ready to avail the benefits of YouTube Red to the fullest.
