There is no doubt that YouTube is the world’s largest online video-sharing platform owned by Google. Moreover, 5 million videos are watched every day all over the world. It is also the world’s second-largest search engine right now. You can even create and upload your own videos to share with others. It’s totally free to watch videos on YouTube, but we shouldn’t forget that YouTube company and some selected video creators earn through advertisements at the price of your privacy. This means that YouTube APIs always track your search habits. So I’m going to share the best YouTube alternative, NewPipe.
NewPipe has been created with the purpose of getting the original YouTube Premium experience on your smartphone device without annoying ads and unnecessary questionable permissions.
The best thing about NewPipe is that it is an independent and purely open-source media player application for Android devices known as an unofficial YouTube client. If we talk about its size, it is barely 8 megabytes in size.
Apart from this, NewPipe is a lightweight, feature-rich and privacy-friendly app as well as it does not use any Google framework libraries, nor the YouTube API. So this app can be used on any device without Google services installed. Also, you don’t need a YouTube account to use the NewPipe app.
NewPipe is a YouTube client that comes along with a built-in search engine to search for any video hosted on its own portal. Anyway, if we talk about its interface then it has a great design with various well rendered functions.
There are tons of applications on the internet to download videos from YouTube, but they don’t have decent functionalities and designs like NewPipe.
But NewPipe allows you to enjoy interesting videos online ad-free. And of course, you can even download videos to watch offline on your device in the required quality.
The best part about NewPipe is that it lets you play music in the background or video in pop-up player. While playing the video in the pop-up window, you can also do other tasks on your smartphone.
