I use SkyTube on my LineageOS phone, and it works perfectly for people who don't want to have a Google account, but still wish to keep up with their video subscriptions. It allows 'subscribing to' or 'bookmarking' channels for later viewing, shows when new videos have been added to those channels, allows you to download videos for offline viewing, etc. Even better, it's free and open-source, and available on F-Droid!
Not as useful as NewPiped where you can reproduce the similar videos automatically. At least, I did not see the option here. I like that you can hide tabs as popular or trending, though. Not using that one.
He has aggressive updates. Versions 2.28 and older have stopped playing videos.
