How to clear YouTube cache?

Answered by Willie Powers

To clear the YouTube cache on your Android device, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Chrome app on your Android phone or tablet. The Chrome app is usually pre-installed on most Android devices.

2. At the top right corner of the Chrome app, you will see a “More” icon (three vertical dots). Tap on it to open a drop-down menu.

3. In the drop-down menu, you will find the “History” option. Tap on it to access your browsing history.

4. Once you are in the History section, you will see a button labeled “Clear browsing data.” Tap on it to proceed.

5. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to select the time range for which you want to clear the browsing data. To clear everything, choose the option “All time.”

6. In the same pop-up window, you will find a list of different types of data you can clear. To clear the YouTube cache, make sure to check the boxes next to “Cookies and site data” and “Cached images and files.”

7. After selecting the desired options, tap on the “Clear data” button to start the clearing process.

Once you have completed these steps, the YouTube cache on your Android device will be cleared, along with any other selected browsing data. It’s worth noting that clearing the cache may log you out of any websites you were previously signed into, so you may need to sign in again after clearing the cache.

Clearing the cache can help resolve issues with YouTube, such as slow loading times, buffering problems, or playback errors. It can also free up storage space on your device. If you continue to experience issues with YouTube after clearing the cache, you may want to try other troubleshooting steps or contact YouTube support for further assistance.

Please note that the steps provided may vary slightly depending on the version of the Chrome app or the Android operating system on your device.
