Since the demise of Vanced, there has been no alternative to YouTube that offers the same functionality. Yes, there are open-source apps like newpipe and skytube that are fairly excellent, but they are not particularly popular among users who prefer the original YouTube interface. After receiving a stop and desist notice from Google, the creators of YouTube Vanced stated that the app will be shut down. They were also compelled to cease creating and distributing the app by Google. As a result, a new initiative called ReVanced was formed to continue on the vanced heritage.
