If you’re an avid music lover, then you know that YouTube is a treasure trove of songs and playlists. However, the platform doesn’t allow users to download songs directly. But don’t worry, there are several ways to download YouTube songs to your Android device using APKs.
What is an APK?
An APK or Android Application Package is a file format used to distribute applications for the Android operating system. APKs can be downloaded from various sources outside of the Google Play Store.
Step 1: Download an APK
To download YouTube songs, you’ll need to first download an APK that allows you to extract audio from YouTube videos. One popular APK for this purpose is ‘TubeMate.’ You can find it by searching for ‘TubeMate APK’ on your browser.
Once you’ve found a reliable source to download the TubeMate APK from, click on the download button and wait for it to complete.
Step 2: Install the APK
After downloading TubeMate, locate the downloaded file on your Android device and click on it to start the installation process. You may need to enable ‘Unknown Sources’ in your device’s security settings before installing third-party apps.
Once installed, open TubeMate and navigate to the YouTube video containing the song you want to download.
Step 3: Download Your Song
In TubeMate, search for the video containing your desired song and tap on it. Once it starts playing, click on the red ‘Download’ button located at the bottom of your screen.
You’ll be presented with various options for video quality and format. Choose ‘Audio’ as your preferred format and select a suitable quality depending on your preference and available storage space.
After selecting your preferred settings, click on ‘Download’ again and wait for the app to complete downloading your song in MP3 format.
Step 4: Access Your Downloaded Song
Once your song has been downloaded, you can access it by going to your device’s file manager and navigating to the folder where TubeMate stores downloaded files. From there, you can transfer the song to any music app on your device or listen to it directly from the file manager.
Downloading YouTube songs to your Android device using APKs is a simple process that allows you to enjoy your favorite music anytime, anywhere. However, it’s important to note that downloading copyrighted material without permission is illegal and could lead to legal consequences. Always ensure that you have the necessary rights before downloading any material.
