User opinions and reviews

Yes of course. Using the older YT App. Though if you want to run newer YT Apps, you might need to install Custom ROMs widely available as daily driver.

  • Milee

Is it possible to use YouTube app on this phone’s android version? (Kitkat)

  • Parker

You can't, believe me I tried. Allot. Ended up installing a new ROM altogether
