@Kimiko_0 Sorry for the long delay!! I have this toot muted 'cause it blew up so much that my notifications became useless. ^^;
You've found the worst part of trying to go Google free on an Android platform, fren. :< My best suggestion to you would be to try out F-Droid:
It's intended as a FOSS replacement for the Google app store, but of course it won't have everything you need. :x
@mawr Ah, you're alive ^_^
F-Droid comes installed default on LineageOS, and I've used it for some software. For official/closed source things (commercial apps, multiplayer games) it's not useful though.
I've installed Yalp, which lets you download from the Google store without an account, and if you change its settings, even without revealing your phone's type/ID.
The only problem left now is official stuff that is from other regions. For that it suggests using a VPN, but I don't have one.
@Kimiko_0 Oh nice!! I'd not heard of Yalp before- glad you found something that worked well for you!! :D
