Updates

When a change to the NewPipe code occurs (due to either adding features or bug fixing), eventually a release will occur. These are in the format x.xx.x . In order to get this new version, you can:

  1. 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.
  2. Add our custom repo to F-Droid and install it from there as soon as we publish a release. The instructions are here: https://newpipe.schabi.org/FAQ/tutorials/install-add-fdroid-repo/
  3. Download the APK from Github Releases and install it as soon as we publish a release.
  4. 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.

We recommend method 2 for most users. APKs installed using method 2 or 3 are compatible with each other, but not with those installed using method 4. This is due to the same signing key (ours) being using for 2 and 3, but a different signing key (F-Droid’s) being used for 4. Building a debug APK using method 1 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 was broken and F-Droid doesn’t have the 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
