NewPipe on Firestick/Android for Ad-Free YouTube


This instructional guide will show you How to Install NewPipe on Firestick/Android for an Ad-Free YouTube experience.

NewPipe is an easy-to-use Ad-Free YouTube application that works on nearly any streaming device.

This includes the Amazon Firestick which is the most popular media device available today.

This is likely due to its “jailbreaking” abilities that allow you to install thousands of applications not available in the Amazon App Store.

How to Jailbreak a Firestick

NewPipe is one of several YouTube alternatives that work to provide videos for streaming without ad interruptions.

Using this clone is one of the solutions mentioned in our guide on YouTube Videos Not Playing.

In the guide below, we are installing NewPipe on a Fire TV Stick Lite.

However, these steps will also work for any variation of Firestick including Firestick 4k and Fire TV Cube.

This process also applies to those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
