Youtube background stopped working, YouTube update?


#1

Hey, I noticed there is some new update for YouTube player and now I cannot playback any yt video/podcast with locked screen. It must have came some point today since it worked yesterday and the player looks totally different now.

My device is OnePlus 5: OxygenOS 5.1.2
