YouTube could slow down sometimes without you knowing because of the website and app caches. If this is enough to bother you, then you might want to clear them on your phone or desktop right away.

When you remove the cache, it does not mean that all data within an app will also be deleted. It only means you are freeing some space to operate YouTube smoothly.

If you have problems doing this process, here’s what you need to know about clearing your YT cache.

Why it’s Important to Clear YouTube’s Cache

Here’s how to clear Youtube’s cache on your Android device or desktop web browser.

Clearing a Youtube cache is as important as cleaning your device. When your smartphone or PC is already teeming with dust and dirt, you might want to clean it thoroughly.

Releasing cookies and caches will help your device run faster. However, if YouTube is full of caches, it might impact the performance of your Android phone or computer.

Other than that, it gives instant fixes to YouTube problems, especially after an update or maintenance.

How to Remove Youtube’s Cache on Android Phone

Before you go through the process, you should take note that deleting YouTube’s cache on iPhone is not possible since the platform does not permit the users to do so. This is the reason why it’s only applicable to Android users.

Now that you already know that it’s only effective on Android smartphones follow this series of steps to get you started.

First, head to your device’s Settings app. There are certain steps that could be different from one model to another. It’s important to know that it all depends on the Android phone variant that you currently have at the moment.

After going to the Settings, tap “Apps & Notifications just below “Buttons & Gestures.”

Now that you’re done with the App screen, you can now select YouTube. Some users might not easily find YT on the given list. If that’s the case, then you can search for “See All Apps” on your device.

Upon tapping the app page of YouTube, click “Storage & Cache,” then click “Clear Cache.”

Finally, you can now initiate the deletion process of your YouTube cache. After that, restart the app, and you can watch your favorite clips without interruption.

How to Remove YouTube’s Cache on Desktop Browser

This procedure is much easier to follow compared to the Android version. To clear the cache on your YouTube app from your desktop web browser, you can simply delete it for “all sites.”

The reason why you need to remove it for all websites is that phone browsers won’t allow you to specify caches that you want to delete on a page.

After you finish this procedure, open the browser of your choice again and, of course, the YouTube. You will notice that using the app is now lighter than before.

In another how-to guide, aspiring musicians on YouTube can use the platform for advertising their craft. Make sure you have a searchable title and organized content to make it happen. You can visit here for more information.

On top of that, you can also learn how to troubleshoot YouTube if it’s not working on your Samsung TV. It’s possible in just seven steps you need to follow.
