Alternative player to watch YouTube videos

Remove ads and more with Turbo

SkyTube is an alternative application for watching YouTube videos. This app has many features that the platform's original app does not have, and even other alternative apps do not have.

In SkyTube, you find the possibility to search for popular videos and import the channels you are subscribed to, subscribe to others, and bookmark videos. In addition, it blocks all YouTube ads. However, you cannot log in with your YouTube account.

Remove ads and more with Turbo

Among the features offered by this app that you do not find in other apps, you see the option to block specific videos so that they do not appear. You can also block entire channels, languages, videos with few views, and even videos with many dislikes. It also allows you to download videos from YouTube and choose the maximum or minimum quality in the settings.

In playback, you can control aspects such as volume, brightness, or forward and rewind options by swiping on the screen. Also, you can accelerate the video up to 6x speed, while the official app and the rest only allow playback up to 2x.

SkyTube does not need to have Google Play services installed so that you can add it to any Android smartphone or tablet. So if you need an alternative player for YouTube, don't hesitate to download the SkyTube APK.
