Surely no one wants their cellphone to have a problem, but if you have to experience a problem, then you have to be prepared to face it.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak spread widely, YouTube seems to have become a mandatory application that must be on smartphones and not a few users have experienced problems with their YouTube application. Indeed, the problems faced by users vary, but the way to fix these problems is not much different!
Therefore, for those of you who are currently having problems with the YouTube application, please try some of the tips that DroidPoin has prepared below:
1. Restart the phone
Before you try different ways, it would be better for you to restart your device. Because by restarting / rebooting, all processes running on your Android phone will stop. Everything will return to its original state like when you first turned on the cellphone, of course this can eliminate some of the problems that exist on your Android phone.
2. Check Internet Connection
YouTube is an application that requires a stable internet connection and because of that, make sure the internet connection you are using is in good condition (whether it’s download or upload speed).
3. Turn on Airplane Mode
By activating Airplane mode, you will disable all network connections. This is believed to fix network related problems on your phone along with YouTube playback issues.
4. Clear Cache and Data
One of the most effective ways to solve a problematic YouTube application is to clear cache and data. If you have to clear cache in the end, that doesn’t mean the data of the YouTube app or other apps is deleted, it will just reset the YouTube app settings to default.
But if you delete data, besides making the YouTube application return to its original settings, you will also lose data in the application.
5. Reset App Preferences
If the methods above don’t work, please try resetting the app preferences. This option will not delete any personal data or files from your Android phone. This option will only reset settings like app permissions, restrictions, etc., to their default values.
For those of you who don’t know how to do it, just go to Settings > System > Reset options . Then just select reset app preferences and just follow the next steps.
6. Update the application
Have you updated the YouTube application? Maybe the problem arises because you rarely or never update the application. So, if you don’t think you’ve updated before, please check for updates on the Play Store right now.
7. Reinstall the application
Okay, the last way and the final method that is believed to be the most effective way to solve various problems is to reinstall the YouTube application.
If you are someone who doesn’t want to bother doing this and that, what’s more, you have unlimited and fast internet. Better just take this option from the start. Hehehe
