    Using the pixel 6 and it seems when the screen turns is YouTube crashes and stops playing. I like videos of rain when sleeping but it seems to crash when the screen turns off.

    Are you using any kind of Bluetooth device as well? What is your signal like when you are using YouTube? Did this happen with previous devices?

    I find that, whether with my S10 or Pixel 5, if I'm in an area that signal is low or 5G is non-existent (for my Pixel 5), YouTube will crash or skip.

    Just to be clear -- you're saying that when the screen turns off, YouTube just stops playing? Are you sure it's crashing?

    I'm assuming you have YT Premium, right?

    You tube premium is a must have to get this feature. Just tested mine to double check and it works fine when screen off. Pixel 4a. Maybe a pixel 6 problem? Don’t forget to reboot once in a while as that can always refresh things nicely.

    Did you have YT Premium before, then cancel it in order to take advantage of Pixel Pass's included YT Premium?

    No power-saving modes turned on, or 3rd party power-saving apps installed, right? Did the phone already install the update that was available right out of the box?

    You can try to Uninstall the update to YouTube see if previous version works just don't let play store automatically update it .
