Eight alternative applications to watch YouTube on mobile

24 mayo, 2021

The official YouTube client is undoubtedly one of the most used mobile applications globally. If you are reading this article, you almost certainly must have it installed on your smartphone. And many believe that this is the only way to see the videos on that portal, but no: it is simply the official mode. There are more YouTube clients out there.

Obviously we will always see the news in the official client first, but if for some reason you miss a special feature you can take a look at the alternate breeders that you can find for mobile platforms.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD VIDEOS from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or TikTok on your MOBILE

TurboTube

Turbotube

This Android application prioritizes that the playback does not take too long to load or that there are cuts in the playback of the videos, something that is sometimes very common in the official client. Free and available on Google Play.

Tubex

Tubex

No, it is not aimed at the adult audience: Tubex is an alternative YouTube client optimized for iOS 9 that boasts of skipping the advertising that the service applies to all its videos and having a completely optimized interface. Free on the App Store.

Metrotube

Metrotube

If you have a terminal with Windows Phone 8.1, one of the most recommended clients is Metrotube. Modern UI design optimized so that you do not notice any change of scenery in your operating system. 0.99 euros in the Microsoft Store.

Perfect Tube

Perfect Tube

Another alternative for Windows, optimized for Windows 10, is Perfect Tube. Its appearance is cleaner and it also works on desktop computers as it is a universal Windows application. Free in the Microsoft Store, but with optional purchases built in.

YouPlayer

Youplayer

Another well-known alternative to YouTube on iOS is YouPlayer, with an interface that may not be as clean as TubeX’s but that meets the basic functions. Free on the App Store.

Play Tube

Play Tube

An alternative YouTube client for Android with an interface quite similar to that of the official client, for those who are looking for something simple and are not confirmed with the service application. Free on Google Play.

Video Tube Free

Video Tube Free

We return to the alternatives for iOS with this client whose key advantage is that it can also play Vimeo videos. In addition, its notifications allow us to open the videos of the channels to which we are subscribed directly from there. Free on the App Store.

ProTube

Bulge

We end up with a paid client on iOS, but according to its users it deserves the price of 2.99 euros with which it is sold: Protube is frequently updated with an interface optimized for iOS 9 and gives us extra options such as the possibility of viewing videos whose authors have blocked on mobile terminals.
