The frustrated moment while using iPhone would be that, when listening to your favorite music on YouTube, suddenly something strikes in your mind, and then you minimize the app to check it, the song shuts off. Many of us have experienced it at one time or another. There’s a simple way to get rid of this terrible situation, play the songs, and use the phone for other tasks.

Here’s how it works. First, open Safari and go to, but remember to skip the request to open it in the app. Proceed to the website.

Play your favorite song then, minimize your browser. At this point, the song will be paused, as it does in the app, but don’t worry.

Now, open the control center by swiping up from the bottom, and press play. This will pay songs on YouTube in the background while you’re on other tasks.

Also, this hack works on iPads as well.
