Best YouTube Downloader for Android 2019 (Updated)

By Dale Moore | Last updated: Apr 16, 2019

What’s the best YouTube downloader for Android?

You must have tried some of the YouTube downloaders, but still confused about choosing the right one. That’s because these YouTube downloaders are look-alike tools with no outstanding features.

Due to the surging number of Android smartphone users, there are so many YouTube downloaders on offer. It has become more difficult to find the best YouTube video downloader app for Android.

To save your time, we have tested several popular YouTube downloader apps and picked the best ones for you. Being the best is not absolute, as every app has its own pros and cons. What you should do is to choose the right one that suits you best.

The overall scores of the top 5 best YouTube downloader apps for Android are as below:

Device Android/ Win/Mac Android Android Android

Overall 4.8/5.0 4.5/5.0 4.2/5.0 4.0/5.0

1. AnyUTube

  • Pros
  • Download YouTube video 1080p
  • Convert YouTube to mp3 320kbps
  • Batch download more than 600 files
  • Play music with a built-in player
  • Screen rotation supported
  • No ads and no virus
  • Cons
  • Still room for UI improvement
  • Limited downloads for non-subscribers

AnyUTube is a YouTube downloader and converter, which is compatible with the Android device and computer (Windows & Mac).

More importantly, you can search for YouTube videos with the keyword or URL. Basically, the keywords can be anything about the YouTube video or music you want. For example, if you want to download a song from YouTube, you can search with the name of the singer, song, album and even the lyrics.

If you want to download an entire YouTube playlist or channel, just paste the link to the search bar. Then you can batch download more than 600 YouTube videos to MP3 or MP4 in one go.

What AnyUTube impressed me the most is that is the only ad-free app among the 5 YouTube video downloaders for Android.

2. Videoder

The app enables you to download and convert 4K YouTube videos. You can download videos from hundreds of multimedia sites, including some popular video sites from China. Its inbuilt Google search bar allows you to search for anything as you do with Google.

The YouTube downloader is popular in China, as it supports downloads from China's popular streaming media Youku and Tik Tok.

  • Pros
  • Batch download
  • Inbuilt Google search
  • Good layout design
  • Cons
  • Only M4A audio format supported
  • Pay to remove ads

3. Snaptube

One impressing feature of Snaptube is that the window of a video can be automatically minimized to a pop-up window at the right bottom. The video will remain to play while you are exploring for others.

You can preview the video without downloading. If you want to play music or watch movies downloaded, you need to install the self-developed player – Lark Player.

Another feature is that you can enjoy music on the lock screen, so you don’t need to worry about being disturbed by pop-ups while watching a video.

  • Pros
  • Clearly sorted channels
  • Share to social networking sites
  • Play videos in the pop-up window
  • Play music on the lock screen
  • Cons
  • Batch downloading is not available
  • Install self-developed player to play music

4. Tubemate

The thing I like the most is the UI design. The widescreen video cover is neat and eye-catching. Just slide up and down to find the video you want.

There’s a search bar on the top for you to search a video with a keyword or URL. You can preview the video without downloading.

Two disadvantages are worth mentioning. One is that it does not support batch download. The other is that it has no inbuilt MP3 player. In other words, you need a third-party player to play MP3 songs.

  • Pros
  • Multilingual
  • Inbuilt Google search
  • Watch videos without downloading
  • Cons
  • Batch downloading is not available
  • Install an MP3 video converter to enjoy MP3 of the downloaded video


As you can see, AnyUTube is the best YouTube downloader for Android overall. The app is recommended for daily use. If you use YouTube a lot and need to download a great many videos to enjoy them offline, AnyUTube is the best solution.

As the specific demand varies from person to person, it would be better if you have a try in person and find the best YouTube downloader app.
