How To Play YouTube Music While On Other Apps

★ First, you need to download a web browser that isn’t Apple’s Safari. A good choice for this is the Dolphin web browser for your iPhone which is free of charge:

★ Download Dolphin Mobile Browser for iPhone here

★ Once you’ve installed Dolphin, open the app and go to

★ Search for the video you want to listen to (a music playlist, ideally) and start playing.

★ Now close the app by hitting the Home button the music will stop playing, but don’t worry.

★ Next, bring up the Control Centre on your phone. This involves swiping up from the bottom on a normal iPhone, or down from the top right corner on an iPhone X.

★ In the top right, you should see a box with the name of your YouTube video this is the Now Playing widget.

★ Press the Play button in the widget and the audio should start without you being inside of the Dolphin app.

This should still work even if your phone is locked something that’s not possible with the official YouTube app.

Once the music is playing again, you should be able to control playback from the lock screen too.

When you wake the lock screen, there’ll be some music playback controls that let you pause or change the volume.
