Love listening to music on YouTube? Here’s how you can play a video on loop on YouTube.
A lot of us listen to music on YouTube rather streaming platforms such as Saavn or Gaana. Unlike music-exclusive platforms, YouTube offers a wider catalogue of music videos including official and crowd-sourced ones. Also, it's part of Google ecosystem which further makes it easier to keep tab on recent searches and history.
If you love listening to music on YouTube, here's a simple trick to play a track on loop.
Search for the track you want to play on your browser.
Once it starts playing, right click on the video.
Click on the fourth option "Loop."
And you're done. The video will play on your browser on loop.
The official YouTube apps on Android and iOS don't support the loop feature yet. But there's a workaround.
On the mobile app, add the video to a new playlist. To create a new playlist, tap on the "save" icon on the right below the video. Long press on the "save" icon will allow you to save the video to a "new playlist."
