What is Vanced Manager APK?
In simple words, Vanced Manager APK is designed to get rid of complicated procedures that are involved while installing YouTube Vanced. This is a similar concept to the Magisk Manager, which is made to flash Magisk Su updates without the need of visiting custom recovery every time. Even, we have taken libsu from Topjohnwu for rooted operations.
Why we made this app? Because YouTube only distributes APKs format now which has a collection of .apk files. In this way, they can make development quicker. So, forcefully we adopted the same as like official does. That makes us adopt to another app called SAI (Open-source project) for installation.
As you already know, that this step taken by us is kind of frustrating to everyone as you need to perform some complex task. Despite the fact that the proven guides are published in our Reddit forum to know how new method works. Yet, people fail to follow.
Well, that’s where we’ve got an idea of creating Vanced Manager that could be the ultimate solution for all of our user needs. One can install updates, uninstall YouTube Vanced if you want, update MicroG and more. It has some really useful features.
