ReVanced: The best YouTube Vanced alternative is launched


Youtube revanced vanced alternative

Because the YouTube Vanced project no longer exists due to legal issues, users began to search for alternatives. And in this post we offer you the best alternative app for the well-known Vanced Youtube application, we are talking about the recently launched ReVanced app.

What exactly is YouTube Vanced? It was a customized YouTube client with features like SponsorBlock, ad blocker, picture-in-picture support, background playback, an AMOLED dark theme, and many more. This post will show how to download the new ReVanced app that have the same features and you may use instead of Vanced.

Not long ago, Google pushed YouTube Vanced, a premium version of the YouTube app, to go down, threatening a lawsuit. Many people were relying on YouTube Vanced which is a great alternative to YouTube Premium. Certain aspects of the app were not in accordance with YouTube’s terms of service. As a result, YouTube Vanced was shut off. While this infuriated many people around the world, another team of developers seized command of the project and built a new app called ReVanced without any relation with the YouTube Vanced team.

ReVanced will be the replacement for YouTube Premium

Earlier, the root version of the app was accessible officially in the GitHub repository of the team; however, if you do not want to root your device; you can now try the first non-official version of the app for not rooted devices. We hope that the official version is coming soon.

    @Stin Kender I can’t say that I fault you for thinking along these lines and the motivation for it is admirable. However, if you were under the impression that Google/YouTube was unaware of YouTube Vanced for all the years that it existed in relative peace and quiet, without receiving any cease and desist letters from Google, you would be mistaken. Google is very well aware of the YouTube frontends/clients that exist as alternatives to the official app and most notably, in place of YouTube Premium, all thanks to the YouTube API. Up until recently they left these projects alone. There are plenty of other similar projects that have existed as long or longer than YouTube Vanced did and they have not and likely will not receive any sort of takedown notice. The biggest reason for YouTube Vanced receiving a cease and desist letter was not that they offer an alternative to YouTube Premium It wasn’t even the fact that they were doing so in a way that was indistinguishable from outright copyright infringement (notably, some of the other similar projects avoid being in violation of copyright laws by making much more significant alterations to the code than YT Vanced did, not simply copying and pasting). Despite the project being guilty of blatant copyright infringement, they existed for years without so much as a raised eyebrow in their direction from YouTube/Google. It wasn’t until the Vanced team benefitted financially that Google took exception. YouTube Vanced issued/minted and sold an NFT of the Vanced logo, which is arguably another example of copyright infringement in itself, being very similar to the official YT app logo and less than a month later, were forced to shut the project down. There Vanced devs/team claim it was all a big joke, and that may well be the case but it doesn’t change the fact that they actually minted and sold it. Either way, Google obviously didn’t find the joke funny/failed to see the humor in it. For the same reason you asked the author to remove this post/article, I’m hesitant to name any of the other projects despite everything above being absolutely true. It’s more of a concern about jinxing a project than an actual fear that someone at Google will see my comment, run it up the flag pole and ultimately meet the same fate as YT Vanced but since this project has put in great effort towards making their app their own through not just the altering of a line of code here and there but by outright creating their own API, thereby eliminating the need to call YouTube’s API at all, I refer you to NewPipe. I haven’t checked out ReVanced yet but I am a huge advocate of NewPipe. In all honesty, even before Vanced was shut down, I used NewPipe almost exclusively. I only used Vanced when I wanted changes that I was making to stick to my YouTube account, for example, subscriptions that I wanted to exist outside of the NewPipe app. In fact, I still have YouTube Vanced in its final form but still choose to use NewPipe 75% or more of the time. Still, I’m happy that some developers took on the task of continuing the Vanced project in spirit. Let’s just hope that they’ve learned from the OG Vanced team’s mistakes and vow not to repeat any of them 🤞

    Prior to seeing @Stin Kender’s comment and going off on that tangent, I was going to point out that article stating that YTV was shut off is technically incorrect. The project is no longer maintained and they had to pull their APKs but anyone that had it prior is still able to use it. It’s inevitable that YouTube will push an update that will break core functionality & since it’s no longer developed etc., that will be the end of it but the consensus seems to be that it should work in its current form for some time to come. I don’t know why or how this was arrived at but its been said by many that Vanced should work for approx 2 years or so. Again, I don’t know what logic that time frame is based on, I just know that I’ve seen it repeated many times over in discussions about YT Vanced
