Android users have a new reason to be happy. If you have a device with the operating system from Google, now you can listen to music on YouTube with your phone’s display blocked, all thanks to a free application.
Although YouTube is a platform for video content that provides a huge variety of videos, many users use it for listening to their favorite music. If you can’t find the song you’re looking for in the music streaming applications, such as Spotify, there is a big chance for YouTube to fulfill your wish.
You can’t listen to music on YouTube with your phone screen blocked. This is frustrating, not only because it consumes your battery, but makes the experience quite uncomfortable, being nearly impossible to put your phone in your pocket without clicking a few buttons.
Now, the “Black Screen for life” application for Android, comes to save the situation. This free app blocks the screen of your phone using the proximity sensor.
When it’s locked, the display will be disabled, which means that when you’re locking the phone, the music also will stop. All you have to do is to cover the proximity sensor, which is located at the top of your phone. It also works if you face the phone down or put it in your pocket. It’s not the most pleasant method, but it works.
The application provides a secure method without having to root your Android device. „Black Screen for Life” can be downloaded from Google Play Store here.
