How to loop YouTube videos on iPhone and Android

After YouTube music was released, many people stopped using Spotify and Amazon Music. Though, Spotify is still better in terms of content. Because there are over million podcast titles on Spotify available. But, these days, almost all new songs come first on YouTube. Sometimes, a song gets stuck in our minds, and, we like to listen to it on loop. Unfortunately, YouTube App does not let you play YouTube videos in the loop, but the Spotify App offers such a feature.

Surprisingly, the desktop version of YouTube offers a loop option. In case, you’re not aware, play a YouTube video. Then, do right-click over that video. And, you”ll get the “Loop” option, just click on that. That’s it, you can now listen to your favorite music on loop on the YouTube site. But, I don’t think, YouTube will release this feature in their Android and iOS App anytime soon. Because they took quite a long time to release dark mode.
