I use YouTube a lot in my phone, and specific in what I watch. I control this mainly using 'subscribing' channels what I really wanted to watch.

Now the problem is YouTube app has it's own default page called 'Home' which I totally hate it since it pollutes the feed by adding their own 'suggested' videos and I'm lost into videos that I wouldn't have watched otherwise.

Is there a way/app to set 'Subscription' page as the default?

Or is it possible to create a deep-link into my desktop so that that page opens directly !?

Or what are the better alternate to the official YouTube app ?

  • That might be possible: some launchers (e.g. Apex) offer to browse activities an app offers, and there are also stand-alone apps to do so (see my answer here. You then could create a shortcut to that activity (icon on the homescreen to launch directly into that activity). – Izzy May 3 '18 at 10:14
  • Good idea @Izzy surprisingly Youtube has not listed that page as an activity. – nehem May 4 '18 at 1:04
  • That's nasty (but was worth a try). Afraid in this case chances are close to zero. Maybe trying an alternative YT player? – Izzy May 4 '18 at 6:09
  • Is a different launcher (such as Nova launcher) OK? I found an answer, but it requires that launcher. – Zackary supports Monica May 29 '18 at 17:30
