YouTube Cannot Be Opened on Cellphone, Check the Cause and Solution Tech – 20 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – There are several reasons why the YouTube application cannot be opened on a cellphone. It could be due to an unstable internet network or other factors.

To be able to overcome it, you certainly need to know what the cause is. So, here are several reasons why YouTube can’t be opened on a cellphone, summarized from various sources.

1. Bad internet connection

The problem that is most likely to occur and is the easiest to solve if YouTube cannot be opened on a cellphone is the internet connection.

If you’re using a cellphone, you can check the status icon at the top of the screen to see if it has a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. If in doubt, open your phone’s Settings app and turn Wi-Fi off, then back on.


A surefire way to check internet access is to try another application that requires a connection. You can check the Netflix app, for example, or see if it can send and receive emails.

2. YouTube is down

YouTube is a relatively reliable video streaming service, but the site sometimes experiences glitches.

If you are sure there is no problem with internet access, it is a good idea to check whether the service is offline before looking for other reasons or solutions to the problem.

The easiest way to check is to go to the YouTube status page in DownDetector, or simply search for “Is YouTube down” in Google search. DownDetector is usually at the top of search results. If the site is down, wait a while and try again later.

3.Full YouTube cache and data

Another reason YouTube cannot be opened is because the YouTube cache is full. When the cache is full, this makes the YouTube application run slowly until it hangs.

To overcome this, you need to clear the YouTube cache. Check out the steps below:

Android:
Open Settings
Then go to Applications or Apps
Scroll down until you find the YouTube application, then select Storage & cache
Then select Clear cache

iPhones:
Unfortunately, there is no way to clear the cache on iOS apps. The only effective way to do this is to uninstall and reinstall the app.

Look for the YouTube application that has been downloaded on your iPhone
Click for a few seconds until the Remove Youtube notification appears
Then click Delete App
After that, go to the App Store and re-download YouTube

4. Not yet updated to the latest version

Running old versions of applications is usually not a problem, but sometimes it can cause some problems when used.

This is especially true with more extensive updates, or upgrades that include server-side changes. Make sure you use the latest version of the application and diligently check application updates.

How to update Android applications:
Open Google Play Store.
Tap the profile icon.
Go to Manage apps & devices.
Select Update available.
Find YouTube and check if it needs an update.
Press the Update button next to it.

How to update iPhone applications:
Open the Apple App Store.
Tap the Profile icon.
Under Upcoming Automatic Updates
Search for YouTube and tap Update next to it.

5. Time and date are out of sync

Date and time settings can be the cause of YouTube not syncing. Google servers may have problems syncing them if you don’t set them up correctly.

Here’s how to sync date and time on Android:

Open the Settings app.
Tap System.
Go to Date & time.
Enable Set time automatically.
Enable Set time zone automatically.
Enable Use location to set time zone.

Set date and time on iPhone:
Open Settings.
Go to General.
Select Date & Time.
Make sure Set Automatically is enabled.
