Is there a way to extract the audio tracks from YouTube videos for use on my phone for music? Is this a legal thing to want to accomplish? Maybe there is an app that would fit the bill?

I don't know about an app, but Any Video Converter has always done the trick for me. Just a head's up, they will try to get you to download a security program, Bytefence or something like that - don't do it! Other than that, I've never had issues with this site before. I'm sure there is an app out there that does it too. I just haven't heard of one.

As far as the legality of extracting audio files from Youtube, it is legal as long as the video is public domain or you have the copyright owner's permission.

Yes, to extract the audio tracks from YouTube videos for use, VideoSolo Free Video Converter does a good job in this. And it provides MP3, WAV, AAC, etc audio formats for you. After extracting, you can listen to the audio track on any devices.https://www.videosolo.com/free-video-converter/

Do these sorts of apps disrupt the quality of the audio? I've always been concerned about that, on top of all of the potential legality issues.

There is always the legal issue on this. However, I think there is no problem if we use the converted audio for personal use and not for commercial use wherein we get income from it.

As for the converter app, there are many in the internet where you can convert an online video into MP3 and the app usually sends the converted file into the email you provided.

YouTube allows video download for offline viewing, but it doesn't apply to all videos. You can set the video quality to low to save data and focus on the sound.

What do you think about downloading the audio formats from other websites instead of YouTube? I assume both are illegal, but downloading the MP3 is way easier.

I think it will be illegal when you download or convert the video into MP3 or into a video format without paying for it. What I don't know is when you upload a copyrighted material onto YouTube or other websites even when you bought the original copy.
