The Vanced developer team just dropped a major update with the latest YouTube Client version 16.29.39. It also bumped the SponsorBlock to a more stable version. Sponsorblock helps remove sponsored segments on YouTube for a seamless video playback. So download and install latest YouTube Vanced v16.29.39 and Vanced Music v4.39.50.

The latest YouTube Vanced v16.29.39 also fixed buttons after watching shorts, added preview category, added length of the video, fixed swipe down to refresh bug, and much more.

Most importantly, it bumped the bumped base to latest SPONSORBLOCK feature. This feature lets you skip sponsor segments that are part of the videos. It is a crowdsourced platform. So users are continuously submitting (start:end) segments themselves. The latest version adds a guideline on how to use it. Additionally, YouTube Vanced now works with Android 12, 11, 10, 9 Pie, 8 Oreo, 7 Nougat, and more.

The previous version of the YouTube Vanced app brought back the old video quality selector menu. Instead of directly showing the video resolution like 2160p, 1440p, 1080p, 720p, 480p, etc. Google has changed the video quality terminology to something completely vague like – Auto, Higher picture quality, and Data saver. Thanks to the Vanced app, you can now revert back to the old UI starting from the previous YouTube Vanced v16.20.35.

Changelog for YouTube Vanced v16.29.39

  • Bumped base -SPONSORBLOCK (thanks to cane):
  • fixed buttons after watching shorts
  • added preview category
