The popular Vanced YouTube app is being discontinued. The creators of Vanced have revealed the project will be shut down in the coming days, with download links set to be removed.

The Vanced owners say they’ve had to discontinue the project “due to legal reasons.”

“Vanced has been discontinued,” reads a Telegram message from the Vanced owners. “We know this is not something you wanted to hear, but it’s something we need to do.” We’ve reached out to Google to comment on the discontinuation of Vanced, and we’ll update you accordingly.

“DISCONTINUATION OF THE VANCED PROJECT

Vanced has been discontinued. In the coming days, the download links will be taken down. The Discord server, Telegram chat and subreddit will stay for the time being. We know this is not something you wanted to hear, but it’s something we had to do. We want to thank you all for the support over the years.

Edit (1): The existing version will continue to work.
Edit (2): It was done due to legal reasons.”

While the app will continue to work for anyone who currently has it installed on Android, without any future updates it’s likely to stop working at some point soon.
