Due to legal issues, the Vanced YouTube software, an Android program that plays YouTube videos and can eliminate all advertising without a premium subscription, is being shut down.
Vanced stated they’re closing down after receiving a cease and desist letter from Google, which required them to stop distributing and developing the app. According to a Vanced admin, they were also instructed to erase all references to ‘YouTube,’ replace the logo, and remove all connections relating to YouTube products.
Vanced has been discontinued. In the coming days, the download links on the website will be taken down. We know this is not something you wanted to hear but it's something we need to do. Thank you all for supporting us over the years.— Vanced Official (@YTVanced) March 13, 2022
The current Vanced YouTube app version will continue to function, but it will become obsolete in around two years.
