I would like to fully extricate myself from google. But thats like trying to boycott plastic.
Google is leaps and bounds beyond any of its competition. I checked out youtube substitutes and was disappointed. Maps substitutes? Another disappointment. And is it possible to have a smartphone without android or ios?
Using duckduckgo and ditching gmail addresses are a step in the right direction but we have a long way to go to completely rid us of google.
