Just like Mobile you can download YouTube for PC, Yes the YouTube PC App for free. But I prefer to use the YouTube website on chrome rather than the Youtube PC app.
When you download the YouTube App you cant block the Ads on it. But when you use YouTube on Chrome browser you can add Ad Blocker Extension and you won’t see any YouTube ad.
Note: But by using Adblocker your favorite YouTuber will not earn any money whenever you watch their videos.

YouTube App Vs YouTube Website: Best Choice
In the beginning, I mentioned that I prefer to use YouTube on Chrome rather than downloading any PC app. There are few reasons why I like YouTube Websites other than the YouTube App check below.
- YouTube Website is easy to Access than App, App takes time to load.
- You can use AdBlocker on Chrome to Skip Ads on the YouTube website, but not on the YouTube PC app.
- You can download the YouTube Video from the website by using a chrome extension but not on the YouTube PC app.
- Chrome browser is the most popular browser and the YouTube website runs smoothly there so no need to use any App just bookmark the website in chrome.
- YouTube App may get crash some time and it can take several minutes to load.
Note: I have bookmarked YouTube on my chrome browser and pinned the YouTube tab. The Pinned tab opens every time as it was and this fulfills my all needs about having any YouTube App.
