Recently got interested when some apps I “lived with” started seriously larding up the ads to force their premium versions. The following block ads in both browser and apps, are free, non-root, light on resources, and open source: AdClear and BlockThis work on Android J and newer, DNS66 works on Android L and newer. I don’t think any are in Google Play, so best to google the developer’s site or GitHub for a reliable APK to sideload.

In March 2015, YouTube launched support for publishing and viewing 360-degree videos, with playback on its website and its Android mobile apps. Parent company Google also announced that it would collaborate with camera manufacturers to make it easier for creators to upload 360-degree content recorded with their products to YouTube.[13] However, in 2017, Google and YouTube began to promote an alternative stereoscopic video format known as VR180, which is limited to a 180-degree field of view, but is promoted as being more accessible to produce than 360-degree video, and allowing more depth to be maintained by not subjecting the video to equirectangular projection [8][16]

Go down to a sandy, golden beach at dawn. Enjoy the splendid solitude, the intense awareness that comes with being by yourself in nature. Watch the sun rise over the headland and listen to the soothing sound of the waves and the jubilant songs of the birds as they welcome a new day. Immerse yourself in the tranquillity, but also in the energy of new beginnings. Embrace this energy and allow it to nurture your body. Let it renew your spirit, give you hope for the future and reconnect you with creation. Fun fact - Even though the beach is called Pebbly Beach in reality, there are no pebbles on this beach!
