The official YouTube app for Android offers many features. Nevertheless, in the view of some users, there are no important functions. For example, clips cannot be played in the background. Without ads, the developers of the Android app are trying to get even more out of the video site – including the questionable access permissions and functionality for offline playback on your smartphone.
New Pipe: An Alternative to the YouTube App
New Pipe: Practical Benefits
In addition to the download function, two useful playback options stand out: on the one hand, you can play YouTube videos as pop-ups, and on the other hand, you can only play audio with the playback option. You can do other tasks on the smartphone at the same time or turn off the screen while listening to your favorite content. This is very interesting for music playlists.
New Pipe: More than just YouTube content
As already mentioned you can not only watch YouTube images with New Pipe, you can also integrate content from SoundCloud, BeardUp, Bandcamp and Chaos Computer Club (MediaCCD) Video Portal.

Disadvantages of the New Pipe
As usual, the benefits of the New Pipe are not without restrictions. Thanks to New Pipe you can see the comments below the videos, but you can not write new ones because you do not have to sign in to YouTube. Likewise, no likes and dislikes can be distributed. So if you want to support your favorite news site or your favorite content creator, you need to think about which application you are using. They rely on advertising space, ideas and funding options to keep the offer free for you. Incidentally, the ad block function cannot be turned off in New Pipe to support individual video creators.
