Do not leave the tutorial, restarting the device solves this type of problem in most cases , you lose nothing by trying it and it will only take 30 seconds. If after the restart YouTube has unfortunately stopped , move on to the next solution.
Clear YouTube Data And Cache
This method works in most cases and I’m almost sure it will also solve your problem. This is something we already saw in tutorials like:
Basically what we do is delete all the cache and all the internal data of the YouTube application , leaving it practically as we had it the first time we downloaded it. To do this, the first thing we must do is go to “Settings” .
Once inside we look for the section that says “Applications and Notifications” or simply “Applications” (this can vary from one terminal to another) and we enter inside.
Now among all the applications we must look for the “YouTube” one , we enter inside.
Once inside we will see a menu with the following sections:
- Data usage.
Of all the options, the one that interests us the most is “Storage” , we enter inside.
Once inside we must “Clear Cache” and “Clear Storage”, do it without fear, we will not delete our account or anything like that , we will only delete all the data that the YouTube application has saved and that causes the error.
Finally we restart our terminal and re-enter the YouTube application normally. If this method doesn’t work for you, try the next one.
Format Your Terminal
