NewPipe is an Android application that allows users to watch and download YouTube content without any ads or limits that you can face in the official video-hosting utility.


In general, the app is a convenient alternative to YouTube with a few significant differences. First, the NewPipe utility does not require signing in or registration. You can start watching your favorite videos right away.

In case you are attached to your subscriptions, it is possible to import them to the app. All you have to do is open the middle tab, and pick one of the following options:

  • previous export;
  • YouTube;
  • SoundCloud.

Unlike the YouTube app, here you may find three main tabs: Trending, Subscriptions, and Bookmarks playlists. There is no homepage where you can scroll through recommended content.

Pros and Cons

The application has easy-to-use navigation. There are no extra tabs, sections, or confusing options. However, NewPipe does not provide access to YouTube shorts or recommendations.

It is possible to watch videos in the background and popup modes. In addition, comments, descriptions, and related items are divided into separate tabs below the player.

There is a download option that allows users to select the format and quality of the video.

Nevertheless, you can not like or comment on the videos. Moreover, the lack of ads does not allow you to support creators.
