Here are the links to download YouTube .APK version 18.15.40, so that you can install Vanced or ReVanced on your Android with their latest update 2023. Google sends continuous updates to the official YouTube app and adds many features from time to time. Meanwhile, the company is also getting rid of features that it deems unnecessary, such as the number of dislikes, the old way to choose the video playback resolution, and many other features that users would like to have back.
After that, thousands of users turned to use a modified version of the official YouTube app such as Vanced or ReVanced, which until recently worked perfectly. But a new problem appeared, the latest version of the YouTube Vanced was with v17, which unfortunately has permanently stopped working due to the recent YouTube updates because there is a new term, for running YouTube on Android devices, which is that it has at least v18, so the a new problem appeared: Content is not available on this app which required users to update the app to the latest version.
The solution to this problem if you don’t want to use any of the available alternatives is to download an updated “unofficial” version of Vanced from GitHub or use the better alternative, ReVanced. And while you can download and use one of the unofficial versions, unfortunately it usually does not contain the new in-app YouTube updates by Google.
So a great solution has appeared recently, which is to download the latest version of the YouTube apk yourself with version number v18.15.40, and then manually patch or modify the original file so that you can get all the features of the ReVanced version over the original app.
So, are you excited and want to try the new method? Now let’s get started!
