How to Put a YouTube Video on Repeat on Mobile?

With the launch of YouTube Music, it has been the most used application for listening to music and podcasts. While browsing through YouTube, you are sure to come across such a beautiful collection of songs that are sure to get stuck in your mind. The only disadvantage is that the other music applications come with loop options, allowing people to play their favorite songs on loop. YouTube music doesn’t have any such option. 

Sometimes viewers don’t like going over the next song. They want to listen to their favorite song over and over again. It becomes very frustrating if you have to play that song manually every time. Therefore, looping a video is helpful. While there’s no direct method of looping a song on YouTube, it’s possible, through various methods. 

You must know that the YouTube desktop version allows people to set a song on loop. But if you are accessing YouTube from its mobile version, you might find it difficult to set a video on loop. If you are facing the same issue, this video is for you. This guide talks about how to put a YouTube video on repeat in mobiles.

Why YouTube lacks a “Loop” option for Android and iOS?

In today’s times, people obtain so many services and information from Google maps, google search, YouTube, etc. We often forget that Google is a commercial establishment and it too makes money from ads. Now, if people start playing the same song on repeat, lesser will be the chances to effectively display ads. Therefore, an in-built loop feature wouldn’t be very beneficial for Google. After receiving customer requests for nine years, YouTube has finally added an easy loop feature to its desktop version. We can expect the same to be available for a mobile version soon. 

However, the good news is that even without an in-built loop option, you can put your favorite songs on repeat using your mobile. There are multiple methods you can follow to do the same. Below enlisted are some easy ones. 

  1. Loop a YouTube video on Mobile Web Browser

This is one of the easiest methods to put any YouTube song on loop. You simply have to play the YouTube song from a web browser and set it on loop. However, remember that this trick is applicable only for android users and not for iOS ones. Follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Open YouTube from the web browser. This step is important to prevent the browser from opening the YouTube application directly. 
  • Once the website has loaded, go to the top right corner of the screen.

That’s it. Your job is done.

If the previous method doesn’t appeal to you, there’s another method you can try out. The trick here is to create a new playlist and add your favorite song only to that list. This trick works perfectly on android and iOS mobiles effectively. Follow the following steps mentioned below to get it done:

  • Now, if you are willing to play the song from the playlist, tap on the Play button. Whatever videos are added to the playlist will continue to play one after the other. In this case, we have added only one video. 
  • While it’s playing, tap on the loop icon, to make sure the same song is on repeat.
