How To Convert YouTube Videos Into MP3 On Android


Not many know, but you convert YouTube videos into MP3. Today we will teach you how you can do that on an Android device. First of all we have to mention that ALL videos uploaded on YouTube can be converted to MP3, even if they are copyrighted or not.

Converting YouTube Videos To MP3 On Android

First of all, Google is not allowing you to download YouTube videos in MP3 format. In other words, you will not find any application that’s able to do this on Google Play Store. In other words, you will to enable the “Unknown Sources” option that’s allowing you to install application that you’ve downloaded from the internet. To enable “Unknown Sources” head to Settings->Application and make sure that the “Unknown Sources” is enabled.

Once you enable the “Unknown Sources” option on your Android device, you will need to download and install one of the following applications: Wontube, Tubemate or Tube to MP3.


Wontube is a very popular YouTube to MP3 converter, which can be downloaded form the internet. Once the installation is complete, you will just need to launch Wontube and open YouTube inside this application. Once the video loads you will notice a “download” button located in the top right corner. Just tap on it and the video will be downloaded on your device, which then can be converted to MP3 format.


Tubemate is another cool application, which allows you to convert YouTube Video to MP3. After installing Tubemate on your Android device, you will just need to launch the application and it will look exactly as YouTube app. Then, search for the video from which you want to extract the audio, tap on it and select the “Green” button that’s located at the bottom of the screen to start downloading the video to your Android device (we suggest you to download the video at the lowest resolution, as the audio will not be affected).

When the download is complete, you can head to the Tubemate Otions->Downloads and select the video that you want to covert. You will then see two options, one that allows you to convert the video to MP3 and another one that can save it as MP3. By selecting “Save as MP3,” the YouTube video will be converted to MP3 and it will be saved in your SD card.

Tube To MP3

Tube To MP3 is a more simple converter that allows you to convert YouTube videos to MP3. In fact, we think that this is the application that most of you are looking for, as it will convert the YouTube video directly on the internet and it will allow you to download the MP3 to your handset. This means that you will not need to download the video and convert it on your Android device, which is great as this can be quite time-consuming if you don’t have a powerful handset.

So, just open the “Tube To MP3” application, search for the YouTube video, select it and finally tap the “Download As MP3” button to start downloading the MP3 file to your Android device. Once the download is complete, you can listen to the song on the player on your Android handset.


All three applications are great for converting YouTube videos into MP3, but when it comes to simplicity we are suggesting you to use “Tube To MP3.” However, there are people who prefer to watch the video clips of their songs (in offline mode) while they are chilling on the couch, but also have it on MP3 format when they want to listen to it while running.
