Fortunately, there is a pretty neat workaround you can use to bypass this restriction – and all you need is Telegram.

Here is what you have to do to play YouTube videos in lock screen:

  • Download Telegram from Google’s Play Store
  • Open a chat with yourself (or with Telegram) and drop a link to the video you want to play in the background
  • Once you click play, Telegram gives you the option to open the video in a picture-in-picture window by clicking the highlighted button
  • You will then be prompted to authorize Telegram to play videos in picture-in-picture mode
  • Click on “Settings” in the pop-up message, and enable the “Display over other apps” option
  • Go back to Telegram and play the YouTube video of choice in picture-in-picture mode
  • Lock your screen
  • Boom, the video will now keep playing in the background
