For anyone with Android 9 or above a great way to ad block (excluding YouTube) is to use the Private DNS feature within network settings and change the dns server to 'dns.adguard.com'.

Also - for a system wide blocker on Android (also works on Windows, OS X etc) this is a great deal and works well for me. Allows up to 3 devices. I have it on my phone and the laptop. Doesn't work great on YouTube but for general browsing, in app adverts etc.

It's essentially Youtube without the ads, and a couple of other features unlocked, from what I can tell. If you sign in to your Google account all your saved videos, playlists, histories etc. are there.

One thing I've noticed with Vanced - when casting a playlist to the TV, the transition between videos is a lot smoother than it is with Youtube.
