@dublinux Considering it - are there Fediverse options for all Google services?

@nomyth
There are replacements for all Google has to offer; but not necessarily strictly within the Fediverse.
There are email providers like Tutanota and ProtonMail. NextCloud is an alternative to Google Drive etc. DuckDuckGo for Search.
But trying to avoid Google on the internet is very difficult; they are nothing if not persistent. Deleting Google is an ongoing process for most people, not something you can do in one day.

@nomyth
And of course peertube is a distributed and far more democratic alternative to YouTube which is part of the Fediverse.
It does not yet have a sufficient collection of quality videos to be a major threat to YouTube although this is changing.
It is also wide open for aspiring creators to make a name for themselves in the Fediverse.

@dublinux I was thinking of checking out PeerTube - I have been using Invidious quite a bit too...not quite the same thing.
