I tried a little youtube music after the switch.
Youtube music really isn't a replacement for google music at all.
At one point it tried to sell me music... like bro I'm signed up to listen to unlimited music, why would I also want to buy it?!?!!?
bahua1334142dI find myself opting not to look up a video on YouTube, because of the effect it'll have on my feed. That is the exact opposite of what Google wants, isn't it?
Jilano3111342d@bahua Yeah, I've been in a similar situation. Best way I found is to browse without being logged in and clearing cookies every time you close the tab/browser.
You now what to do about the ads
PS: Google is already getting your money through your subscription wether you use it or not
breznMate2341dForgive my apparent ignorance but is Spotify not a potential replacement for Google Music if YouTube isn't up to the task?
Tisila45138dI was a NewPipe user before all the youtube-dl problems but now I miss it.
The repo is I active so here's hoping for a new update!
Tisila45138dActually NewPipe is working great!
After commenting on this post, I started my quest for updates.
I searched on their repo which led me to their site where I was instructed to add their upstream repo in Fdroid.
I had to uninstall the app and then just had to follow the steps.
Apparently the fdroid apk for NewPipe is too outdated as NewPipe recommends this solution for faster updates.
