With YouTube Premium, you can watch millions of videos without interruptions by ads before and during a video, including video overlay ads. You will also not see third-party banner ads and search ads. You may still see branding or promotions embedded in the content by the creator and promotional links, shelves and features in and around the content that are added or enabled by the creator. These links, shelves and features could be for their website, merchandise, a membership to their channel, event tickets, or other related destinations they are promoting. You can download videos to watch offline using the YouTube or YouTube Music and watch auto-downloaded videos in the YouTube Kids app if these apps are available in your location and you're signed in with your YouTube Premium account. You can view your downloaded videos in the Library or Account tabs. To remove a downloaded video, tap Downloaded and select Remove. On certain mobile devices, videos and playlists can be downloaded only when connected to a Wi-Fi network. Play videos on your mobile device while using other apps or when your screen is off. Background play is available on YouTube mobile apps when you're signed in with your YouTube Premium membership account.

I was wondering if anyone who has YouTube Premium is having issues with the Background Play not working on their Android phone? Background Play is on. I tried changing back to older apk's, cleared cache, etc but nothing fixed so far. It works on another phone so it's not the account. Seems to be specific to this phone. Thanks for all the help redditors. So it's a network issue?
Check YouTube Premium availability in your location
Make sure your YouTube Premium membership has not expired. If you recently lost access to YouTube Premium and then re-subscribed, note that it will take a few hours for saved videos to become available again once you've re-subscribed. Make sure that you're using the latest version of the YouTube app. Visit your device's app store and check if you have any pending updates for the YouTube app. If you have a new phone, or you've recently restored your phone, it may include an old version of the YouTube app e. Check that you haven't blocked all notifications for the YouTube app. You can confirm this within your device settings. If this happens, you'll need to re-enable YouTube notifications at the OS level and, if you still don't want to receive notifications, you can disable them from the YouTube app settings.
