Video sharing platform Odysee has released its Android app on the free and open-source Android app repository F-Droid and also made it available as an Android Application Package (APK).
The APK is full-featured whereas the F-Droid version doesn’t have support for push notifications or Chromecast.

The app is also available in the Evil Google Play Store. However, Odysee said the F-Droid version was highly requested by users that wanted to get the app without having to go through Google.
Not only do the F-Droid app and APK let users get the app without relying on the Evil Google Play Store but it also ensures Odysee can still distribute its Android app if the Evil Google Play Store version is censored.
While Odysee hasn’t been censored by the Evil Google Play Store, the Google-controlled app store did previously boot the LBRY Android app in 2020. Both the Odysee and LBRY Android apps display content that’s published to the LBRY blockchain and at the time, LBRY was the main video sharing app for the LBRY blockchain.
The Evil Google Play Store has also booted many other apps including a third-party client for the free speech video sharing platform BitChute, the freedom-focused social network Flote, and thousands of apps under its election “misinformation” rules.
The release of the F-Droid app and APK are the latest of several updates to the Odysee platform. Last month, Odysee announced major performance upgrades to video playback and added video chapters. And in March, it introduced premium plans with ad-free viewing and exclusive features.
