Why is there a new release only six days after the previous one? Well, don’t expect anything big… just a few adjustments to the previous version and some long-awaited bugfixes for lists! That’s what you would expect from a point release, according to semantic versioning, but we have never been that good at choosing release numbers. Sorry about that.
Before starting with the changelog, let us dedicate a brief moment to the suffering of Ukrainian people. We sincerely hope this cruel war will come to an end soon and your freedom will be respected.
Oh wow, would you look at the time! Happy new year from the NewPipe team! We are “starting 2022 off” with some great additions: YouTube-like rewind/fast-forward, pinned comments, and searchable preferences!
Apart from these, we have a bucket-load of fixes and improvements that will hopefully make your NewPipe experience better than ever.

This release has been baking for quite a while, hasn’t it? We’ve all been busy with real life, and the world moved on in the meantime. So this release brings you both several new features and some much needed bug fi - “SORRY, SOMETHING WENT WRONG” - xes, excuse us, such as for YouTube’s removal of dislikes, which caused a snackbar error on every YouTube video, and for PeerTube’s new short URLs, which are the new default since v3.3.0.
We also have some quality-of-life fixes, like adding more options in menus at various places, some UI changes for the feed and the player, and using ExoPlayer’s default buffer values for videos. Let us know if this last change helps or hurts your viewing experience.
