Are you using the YouTube app or viewing the YouTube page in a web browser? If it's the YouTube app, Adguard *may* not be able to filter the ads. But if you're using YouTube in a web browser like Chrome it *should* remove the ads when playing videos. If it's not, what browser are you using?

Blocking the ads in the YouTube app, at the moment, works best if you have a rooted phone. And even then in my own experience that didn't really work well (this is Google's doing with how the newer player works). I ended up just viewing YouTube in a web browser instead (where the ads can be blocked).

Also, the YouTube app can't be filtered on Android 7.0 Nougat and above. So yeah, the YouTube app is likely making the list of apps that Adguard can't filter (others include the Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. apps).

Hi
possible solution:
with youtube, i folllow this step:https://blog.adguard.com/en/how-to-block-ads-on-youtube-for-android/ and i'm going in setting>Apps>Scroll down until see Youtube app and open it>i click on deactivates with automatic uninstallation and factory installatio>restart your device, and it work! No ads and banners. My factory version is 11.07.59,
With https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/youtube/youtube-11-49-55-release/ and other older or new>after a few days of many ads, with factory version after a week no ads.

It varies from device to device. I personally don't recommend turning off updates for apps or downgrading apps due to security.

It's likely the YouTube app can't be filtered by AdGuard for Android anymore.

What? YouTube app can be filtered by AdGuard for android, with latest version 12.34.55 i see ads with adguard actived, but why i see ads? This program is made for deleted ads. As I already told you, you go in setting>Apps>Scroll down until see Youtube app and open it>i click on deactivates button>restart your device. Next go to store and disable autoupdate after you search youtube app!

Filtered sure, ads removed? Likely not anymore. This is because YouTube has been experimenting with a new player where ads can't be removed. It's very likely Google has pushed out this new player as the default in the YouTube app now, hence why AdGuard for Android can't remove the ads from the YouTube app anymore.

I don't even use the YouTube app anymore because of that, I instead view YouTube in a web browser (Chrome) where the ads can still be removed.

There's an opposite question on android stackexchange, but it might be helpful to you:

Try resetting app preferences. Go to Settings->Apps, choose from menu Reset app preferences and confirm Reset apps. This will reset all app preferences.

To reset preferences for specific app (e.g. Browser), choose it in Settings->Apps and press Clear defaults button in Launch by default section.
In your case you need to go to YouTube app settings instead of browser.

Only speculating here, haven't tried it myself.

If the Android OS on your device allows you to, you *could* also disable the YouTube app itself, so any YouTube links would have to open in the browser itself.
