    The reason is that NewPipe interface resembles YouTube or YouTube Vanced. It seems like a completely new platform to use, with everything different.

    Vanced uses the exact same interface as the Youtube app, which Newpipe doesn't - even if pretty close. While Newpipe provides curious users with lots of other useful features (downloading, cross-play with Sonudcloud, Peertube and Bandcamp...), the interface is an important point to consider when playing music during a party, so that everyone knows how the app works !
