NewPipe does not use any Google framework libraries, nor the YouTube API. Websites are only parsed to fetch required info, so this app can be used on devices without Google services installed. Also, you don't need a YouTube account to use NewPipe, which is copylefted libre software.

Installation and updates

You can install NewPipe using one of the following methods:

  1. Add our custom repo to F-Droid and install it from there. The instructions are here:
  2. Download the APK from GitHub Releases and install it.
  3. Update via F-Droid. This is the slowest method of getting updates, as F-Droid must recognize changes, build the APK itself, sign it, then push the update to users.
  4. Build a debug APK yourself. This is the fastest way to get new features on your device, but is much more complicated, so we recommend using one of the other methods.

We recommend method 1 for most users. APKs installed using method 1 or 2 are compatible with each other, but not with those installed using method 3. This is due to the same signing key (ours) being used for 1 and 2, but a different signing key (F-Droid's) being used for 3. Building a debug APK using method 4 excludes a key entirely. Signing keys help ensure that a user isn't tricked into installing a malicious update to an app.

In the meanwhile, if you want to switch sources for some reason (e.g. NewPipe's core functionality breaks and F-Droid doesn't have the latest update yet), we recommend following this procedure:

  1. Back up your data via Settings > Content > Export Database so you keep your history, subscriptions, and playlists
  2. Uninstall NewPipe
  3. Download the APK from the new source and install it
  4. Import the data from step 1 via Settings > Content > Import Database


Whether you have ideas, translations, design changes, code cleaning, or real heavy code changes, help is always welcome. The more is done the better it gets!
