On average, almost every person spends a minimum of around an hour watching Youtube. Being a bit more real, many people spend almost around 4-5 hours per day on Youtube. Youtube is perhaps one of the most popular online platforms for videos. According to recent stats, Youtube crosses even more than 1 billion hours of view time per day. The official Youtube app, however, does not come with some of the most loved features. To counter this problem, we have several other Youtube clients that offer features like background playback, picture-in-picture mode, and a lot of other cool features.
Newpipe 0.19.3 now available:
Talking about Youtube clients, Newpipe is probably one of the best among all of them. The app brings home some of the most wanted features in the Youtube app. Earlier the app was available for Android smartphones and tablets. The latest version has now added the support for Android TV and Firestick as well. Sounds pretty cool, huh!
Newpipe is without a doubt one of the best alternatives to the stock Youtube app. The app is open-source and is available for free to users. What’s interesting is that the app doesn’t use the official Youtube API and rather uses data scraping technology to scrap meta-data from the website. This web-scraping tool is called Newpipe Extractor and the latest version supports many other open-source apps as well. Without using the official API and instead of using web-scraping, the app does away with those annoying Youtube ads. What else could you wish for?
Newpipe comes with tons of features and services. With every new update, the app packs new features and improvements. The latest version brings a lot of bug fixes and improvements and provides a better and optimized experience. This update also adds support for Youtube Music. You can directly make Youtube Music searches from the app itself without downloading the Music app. These are just a few new changes added to the app. Here are all the cool features that the app comes with.
