New YouTube for Android 5.2.27 without big changes

An updated YouTube for Android is here; though still making its way on Play Store, you can download the APK at the end of this article.


Version 5.2.27 has surprisingly no major UI tweaks or new features, missing also the promised offline video download option. It’s coming though, as digging a bit more into the app’s code discovered messages, offering users the choice of adding and/or removing videos to the offline queue. There will also be a background audio playback support – you’ll be able to start a YouTube video, then use other apps, or turn off the display, and still be able to hear the music play.


The APK is cryptographically signed by Google, was not tampered with in any way and upgrades your existing app (safe to install just like any other APK).
