#DOPEGANGSTER - No suggested videos?!?!
I am bringing this app down to 3 stars. I am upset that this is happening. Up until recently, I’ve had suggested videos after I’ve clicked on a video. I like having suggested videos, and this has been fine because I’ve always had my search history and watch history on pause. I’ve also always had auto play turned off. Just now, the suggested videos stopped showing up. Now all I can see are the comments, a random mixed playlist, or an ad! I’ve tried deleting the app and downloading it again. I’ve also tried refreshing the page, switching things on and off in settings, and turning my phone off completely and then turning it back on. Nothing works. Until this is fixed or someone helps me fix this, I will keep this to 3 stars or maybe less. If anyone has advice on how I can fix this, I would love to hear it. Don’t tell me to do things I’ve already tried.
my love of life - Im triggered about the comment section
I hate the new update for the comments. I hate having to press something just to go trough the comments. I would rather scroll down then tap on the bar thing. I hate when the videos are really big i like it how it used to be. Please change it.
Hi again! I have some issues I would like to address! So on the Ipad im begging to have community posts able to be seen. Just make it like the phone but wider. Its stressing me how much I miss stuff because people normally post on the community post option. I have to go on my phone just to see it. Another one is PLEASE update the notification area. It use to be amazing before until you guys changed it. I am not going to lie but you people are ruining your app to the worst. I don’t wanna come off harsh or anything but it is very annoying. I am gonna keep my rating on 4 stars till you guys improve. For now it’s staying on 4. Another issue is the search thing glitch (i think glitch). It would just not let me delete my search or click on it. I have no idea why but i would like to no because its annoying me a lot.
I wanna say thank you for your time!
ScarletSkies4 - Good app but advertisement overload
I understand the need for advertisements but it’s to the point now that it’s negatively impacting my experience. Now that there’s two, back to back ads in every break it’s irritating how much I have to interact with the app just to finish watching the video. The more I use the app the worse the experience gets. I usually like to use the app while doing other things like cooking or cleaning. I mostly listen and don’t always have my phone in hand. In an 11 minute video with 6 ads, the middle break had a 30 second unskippable ad followed by a 2 minute ad that was skippable. Unless I am physically on my phone to return to the video that would be 2:30 minutes of ads just for 1 of 3 ad breaks in an 11 minute video. It’s overload.
I get that using the free version means you gets ads but it’s overshadowing the content. I don’t want to interact this much with something I’m watching. It’s not a game app. Guess I’ll just stick to watching it on the desktop with my ad blocker.
Otherwise, yeah YT is ok. They’re just getting into Pandora territory which is disappointing. Didn’t mind the ads until recently.
I love this, but... - It’s good though it has so problems
I love this app. I get to listen to my music and watch some creators I enjoy on here, but, there are some problems. For starters, I don’t know why or how but, my Playback speed started glitching on me. When I put it on any of the speeds it starts to glitch the sound and it used to not do that before. It’s unbearable and makes the music sound horrible. Secondly, the comment section and description update is kinda unnecessary. Why put the comments up at the top and have the description ox come upwards instead of downwards like it used to? Thirdly, random crashing, it just kicks me out of the app and it’s very annoying. There are more problems, like playlist glitching (when I try to put a video in the playlist, it does show up or it does have a checkmark in the box next to said playlist I put it in), constant loading, and more, but these are the main ones I am facing/see others complaint about.
Hopefully you’ll see this and fix them. That’s all!
Gjvthxffeesxbgf - So many problems
The loading times can be pretty awful. Whenever I switch to a different tab or turn off my phone and play the video I was currently watching, the video takes sooo long to load when I unpause it. This doesn’t occur when I’m using the app and I don’t get why it happens when the app is running in the background.
I understand why ads are a thing and this hasn’t been a problem before but now it feels like overkill. Every time I watch a video an ad pops up. Sometimes they’re 15 non-skippable ads and at its worst there’s two.
And look, taking away the comments for videos that have been COPPA’d is one thing and removing the mini player is another. It makes no sense. I don’t get how this would be harmful for kids. And the way you decided what videos are for kids is awful. Some of creators have moved on from their channels so when you automatically decide their videos are for kids it removes a whole decade of comment sections. And I hate how I have to worry about my niece stumbling upon two anime girls talking about sex because you automatically decided all animation is for kids.
jasneskis - Sensors too many videos
1. This app is very good for the most part. Lately it has been censoring too many videos. I have to now go to other places on the web to see what I need to learn.
2. When casting there needs to be a way to change the play back speed of a video. It works on small computer, phone and tablet. It needs to work when casting also.
3. When casting I can have videos added to queue to play in order I choose. It would be nice to be able to set this feature for the computer, tablet and phone too.
4. It would be nice if I didn’t loose my active queue list every time I stopped casting. Than I have to set it up all over again . Usually I play videos I found and want to see 1 minute so they will be saved to history and easy to find again to set up again on my queue list.
5. The 10 second foreword or back is nice when casting videos. This feature should be available on tablet and computer. Stop start rewind is an extremely important feature for my use when learning. It would be nice if time were available in 30 second forward/back times also.
Leewan Leewan - Moving the comment section back
It was a good app. Didn’t like the change for moving the on-going video to the small bar too much cos it really doesn’t let me view the video concurrently while I am scrolling through other stuffs because it’s so small. But it wasn’t a deal breaker.
Now the comment section is. It’s not user friendly neither is it intuitive. There are changes that just take time to get used to but it’s for the better, but the change to the comment section is definitely not one of them. The movement to scroll makes a lot more sense than requiring me to tap to expand. It’s entirely too easy to exit out the comment section when I want to return to all comments after I clicked into the more replies. I was more than happy when you guys changed it back the first time only to find it’s been updated again recently. Please stop trying to move the comment section can you?
Even if you had to do this, then at least let me swipe right to go back to the “all comment” after I clicked into one reply, instead of only taping the “back” arrow on the top left.
slendypants - Pure awesomeness but...
The app is unbelievably good and runs really well but here are the issues that NEED to be fixed:
1.the notification-the notification system use to work really well but nowadays it’s broken and it doesn’t notify the subscriber about the newest upload.
2.the lag-this problem is caused by disconnecting or lagging right when you click on the video, when this happens the video plays but with the quality taken down and the audio of the video not being set as the video(the video plays but the audio starts after a few seconds).
3.same problem but-this problem is basically the same but it happens during the video with no lag or disconnections.
4.comments-for some reason nowadays when you want to add a comment in the comment section there’s no problem but when you’ve added the comment and leave, after a few hours if you return to see your comment for a reason it’s not there.
5.basically the same with the likes-it’s just the same but when you like the video and leave and after a few hours you return the video isn’t liked by your account.
That’s it, this is what I’ve been experiencing for the past couple of weeks.
I apologize about the few grammar mistakes I’m not American or English so I’m sorry.
I hope you read this and I hope that this helps you to fix these problems.
Djpartypon3 - It was fine when everything wasn’t for kids
Don’t get me wrong I understand that some cartoons are meant for children but when you notice that there are animated adult content that’s being counted as being for kids too. I watch adult animated shows and I sometimes like to add a comment but I can’t do that anymore because apparently it’s for kids. The comment section is where you can post whatever you want but if you feel you wanna speak your mind about something then that’s okay.
The most annoying thing about this is, that’s not even the worst part about it. I get ads that are about toys or whatever even though I’m watching something that has nothing to do with what I’m watching. Anyway, another problem that I have is that the loading takes awhile even if it’s connected it takes awhile and then it crashes.
Overall it’s still a good app I just think it still needs some more adjustments and I still miss the way it used to be.
Antoine : ) - I hate the constant refreshing and the false notifiactiona
I really hate it it's always telling you like in your subscriptions that some of your subscribers like someone that you subscribe to is uploaded a video but they didn't actually upload a video and then you go out and refresh it and it still says the same thing and at the same time also that I am when I go to my notifications there's no the no notifications no alerts but when I go to my videos and look at the comments there's a comment that did not notify me in my notifications which I have the settings on by the way and also I hate that when you go into videos and always is always constant refreshing like when you go into your videos and then him go into the section of your video not home it just doesn't like let you press on the video it's always refreshing on its own like instead of it letting you press on the video is just constantly refreshing constantly and constantly and constantly and it's so annoying Also I was using the voice thing because I'm too lazy to write this all ha ha Ha
silver.&.silent - Why change the 3 dots button????
I would use this ALL the time to state if a video is not interesting or if I want to save for later. Now it is super small and you have to hold it down for that same menu to come up, turning an action that used to take no time at all into a frustrating and time consuming experience. If you tap on the three dots it just plays the video, what sense does that make if I’m trying to access the menu. This change happened without me even updating the app itself. Please change this back, there was no reason to do that.
Also when a video finishes playing the next recommended videos pop up on the bottom of the screen making it hard to access the full screen button, so when I am trying to go in or out of full screen I almost always inadvertently press another video and then have to go all the way back out to get to what I was watching. Does anyone actually test these “features” before they are pushed out?
ETA I just updated the app on my iPad and now the search doesn’t work, this is like a horrible joke. Rollback this update I can’t find anything useful about it.
ilove reviews - The worst timing
This is the worst Spider-Man miles morales is coming out tomarrow and I want to see the stuff that will be in it and I think it crashed I updated it and turned my phone on and off 2 times but nothing changed this has never happened before, for at least 5 years. Since I’m going on a rant y not talk abt when u stay on a vid for to long it automatically starts then u don’t even get to here what is being said first of all when u stay on it to long and it starts it is annoying u Baotou have enough time to read the title and secondly if this is going to happen y not be able to here what is being said? And then on top of that the ads r crazy don’t nobody have the time or the money to get rid of the ads a and be don’t nobody want to watch them some r literally 45 mins long all be it the ones that actually go with what I’m watching is sayisfying but the ones like target ads when ur watching a video game is annoying but anywho if u could fix these things I have no issue with the app what do ever
Mahalhaaa - the new update
this new update is absolutely atrocious. i understand having innovation towards wanting more for your viewers but the execution was poor.
The comment section is where I could be able to talk and relate to the interest of video and as i scrolled down i could potentially see the other videos that i wanted to watch. Moving the comments under the description is problematic because 1. it’s easily missable 2. it made going/making a comment more difficult 3. the fluidity of scrolling for other videos and going to the comments made sense 4. having the back button on the left side (in addition to muscle memory of clicking on the newly “escape” right side) makes it plain tedious.
the thumbnails are also an issue because they are too large. one video thumbnail alone takes up almost half the screen and with two of them it takes up the whole screen. less is more, and bigger doesn’t always mean better. please consider reinventing the layout because it’s problematic having people used to one idea and completely changing it.
김 재넌 - Downloads/Premium
For days now it keeps deleting my downloads. I’ve downloaded over 200 videos and now they’re gone. Twice. I don’t know if it’s the update, but you need to fix this. I’m paying almost $17 and it doesn’t even work right. I keep re-downloading them, but a couple hours later, they’re gone. First it says it’s having trouble loading them, then it straight up deletes them. This is one of the big features I use and if it keeps doing this I might as well cancel the subscription. And don’t get me started on the ‘no ad’ feature. Every time I go on a different device on the same account I have premium on, I get ads. I’m actually starting to get annoyed. I use the downloads to listen to music offline. Each time I go offline; “Cannot load downloads” and then, “No videos downloaded.” Please fix this because it’s a long process to download all of the videos back onto my device. If anyone is going to get premium, do not buy it until they fix this issue.
cay-os - Like app BUT
I actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much.
Stoocy05 - I have an idea for the inbox tab
I love using the app so much, and other than the comment section being moved, it’s great. I have an idea, though. What if you change the way the “Inbox” tab works? Like when you click the “Inbox” tab, there are two separate tabs on the top. One should obviously be for new videos from your subscription feed and the other should be notifications from comments you’ve left. I tend to comment quite a lot and often find myself scrolling through many videos in my inbox just to find the comment I’m looking for. I also know that many don’t like commenting, so that tab will be kinda useless for them, but what if you make it an option for the users in settings? It would really improve user experience, especially those like me, who like commenting a lot. It would be nice to see this implemented in the app!
iPhone iConnoisseur - Stagnant monetized development
I have been a premium subscriber for a while now, so as new capabilities become available, I can understand the desire to monetize to create a variation between premium and non subscribing. The thing is that exists with ads and services such as TV. The biggest reason I got premium is I didn’t want to see ads for things I didn’t care about. That is the same reason I didn’t get TV, I don’t care about it.
The desire to limit things such as PIP as to not lose the differences between paid and non is becoming ridiculous. Now, in the struggle to control background playing on iOS, google has safari crash if it is a non paying account trying to use PIP on mobile safari. Personally, that is kind of rude, and Apple should fix it in a patch because safari force crashing is in my opinion a iOS bug. No website should have that much control over your browser and OS. Apple?
My gripe is that the app doesn’t have the functionality. Seriously? I’m already paying for it. Why do I have to use safari as a paid subscriber? It is this type of account greed that ruins companies.
The One And Only The Prodigy! - Strange status Bar glitch
Hi there… This app is great… But there is one problem… there is a strange status bar bug… lets say you are watching a video… And you want to check the time The time doesn't change… If you check the status bar while watching a video for example… Let's say I play a video that is 15 minutes long… At 9:31 AM and when that video is finished… It's already 9:47 AM unless… You exit out the video… The time still says 9:31 AM it'll be 5 o'clock in the afternoon and the status bar would still say 9:31 AM it's like… The clock got stuck The time doesn't change… Unless you restart the app… Or exit out the video also… Nothing in the status bar changes including the battery level The only way to see the correct time and all of the other information displayed you have to exit out the video And… For the iPad version if you select add to bye accident there is no cancel button it's been like that for three years please fix those issues… There really annoying
Really_tried - Garbage on iPad
Going full screen, moving around the video, or just have a transition from the video to the ad will almost guarantee that the whole app will glitch out. Not only do I have to exit out and close the app multiple times to fix the problem, I have to wait for the sounds from the ad/video to stop playing-even after I exit the app-then go back in and have everything back to normal. I also have to click on the notification feed multiple times until it registers that my inbox has already opened and stop displaying that number on top of the icon, which is the number of new videos uploaded by channels I have the bell ringed. And lastly, there is just no support for the implementation of the community feed on the iPad, even though other devices do. It’s just stupid. Garbage company, garbage decisions, garbage staff. Vimeo is looking better than ever.
kkone1517 - UI was better before
The video quality itself isn’t the problem lately but it’s the changes to the comment section and recommended videos that I just can’t get behind. For me, and many others a big part of the experience is being able to look at comments and easily jump between other’s reactions and thoughts on the video, along with easily being able to jump between time stamps listed in the comments and the video.
Now, it’s far too easy to overlook the comments altogether since they tend to blend in with the description or even get overlooked as part of an ad. It’s also ridiculously easy once you’ve clicked to look at replies to a comment to exit out of them completely since the X just closes them all instead of that specific comment, which makes it all supremely annoying to navigate.
It would be good to give the option to toggle back to a “classic” view at least, since it isn’t only the comments, but also the recommended videos that are troublesome to look through as well. Really, have they never hear of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”?
Reality Macro - Some issues with the latest update
I use this app probably more than any other app on my iPhone. For the most part it’s really great, but not without flaws.
Most of the videos displayed in the Home screen no longer show the video length timestamp in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail which is really irritating. It looks like all other views in the app show the timestamp, so hopefully it’s a bug that’s fixed ASAP. A couple random videos in the Home list show the timestamp while the other 95% do not, which makes no sense.
Sometimes the video rotation gets stuck in landscape and will not revert back to portrait view, only the opposite landscape view. This has been a problem for a few months now, and the only way to fix it is to force quit the app. This is quite irritating.
Finally, a good addition but extremely overdue feature is the ability to sort the Watch Later playlist. FINALLY this utterly BASIC feature exists. I have no idea why the Watch Later playlist worked so differently than regular playlists for so long, but that’s fixed now.
The best addition from a few months ago was the feature of double-tapping to rewind and fast forward. Every video player needs this. It’s incredibly user friendly. It’s way better than the rudimentary 15-second skip buttons that many players now have.
The Apple Corps1 - What I love about U Tube!
Almost every site starts out very user friendly, useful and most of all...free! Unfortunately, as greed goes, so do new fees, so called upgrades and no so updates that turn out to be new fees. Not so with U Tube!
As with anything now, the are great people for the most, that use this service, but there are crazies that have abused the service. The only complaint is an innocent little video that I put out about kittens that someone put some very nasty comments about it. We rescue animals to save them. This person was very creepy. I do recall that it was a person that had put together voices that were imitations of John Lennon and Paul McCartney talking about events that never happened. I’m not a Beatles expert, but I knew the conversations never happened. I commented that the conversations weren’t real. I’m sure that’s why the author made the comments on my innocent little video.
MugWhamp - You can Learn ALL things Through You Tube!!
I often Joke with my Husband, That No matter what we might Think we want to DIY, Even though With the help of Pintrest/ YouTube/And Home Depot classes on line .... we could even DIY Our First home all but the electrical and The main plumbing Hardware for whole home. Lol lol I love You tube. We even will Give each other random topics that Might Just pop into thought, So far to date There has not Been a time I can remember, where The topic had Not already been fully Explained or given a tutorial video for how to.. AMAZING FUN GANE especially while we are So Home bound these days we spend much much time together. So finding things to either do together, project wise... or keep each other laughing is how we are surviving the 2020 COVID-19 Lockdowns! Well, that and the many many quad rides we have taken out on the property, and Out in the Blue Mnts. :)!
madid503 - Awful bug!!!!
The app is absolutely amazing and I use it all the time. But there seems to be a bug job the app to where I can’t watch any music videos on the app with the original singing, all that pops up when I type in a song is the instrumental versions of the song then when I go to find other songs that I saved there is a little bar that pops up saying that the video must be approved first before I can view it but doesn’t give me the option to fix it. I haven’t been able to find any of the music I regularly listen to and I can’t even find singers accounts to view all their albums and music! It looks like everything has been totally deleted except for all of the instrumental versions which is absolutely not what I wanted to listen to. Also the comments, which I love to scroll through while the video is playing, is always saying that the comments have been restricted from my viewing because of some restriction mode that I didn’t even know was there let alone turned it on. PLEASE FIX 🚨🚧⚠️‼️
Rose Mairi - Needs Some Improvements
For the most part, this app works really well, but sometimes after a video ends while I have it on full screen, it freezes and stays black for a few seconds, which is a little odd. The only other problem I have is that when I pause a video to read something and have to tap the vid to get the white pause symbols out of the way, it glitches if I tap it twice too fast and the symbols freeze for a few seconds, which is aggravating and has been happening for a few months now. I’d really appreciate it if you guys could fix these two small issues. Other then that, everything else is great.
Update: It doesn’t seem like any of the problems I mentioned have been fixed, as they’re still happening. Please fix those issues. Also, for some reason, this app just now closed on me and my phone turned off and immediately turned back on. I’m assuming it has something to do with the app itself. If so, please fix that problem.
WheresMyDad99 - Amazing app but tiny annoying features.
I love this app. I have met many amazing people through it, and it’s sort of a pass-time mostly for me. The only things keeping me from giving this the 5 stars it deserves, are it’s new updates. I haven’t checked computer updates but on mobile description and comments are completely separate from each other. Instead of just clicking a button to read the description, it pulls it up completely covering everything else, same with the comments. Instead of just scrolling down, it is right by the top, which I don’t think is much of a problem other than confusing, but the fact that it takes up the entire bottom half of your screen if you click on it is annoying. I really don’t like having to take the time to click in and out of these. I really don’t care a ton or think it’s the end of the world, it’s just really annoying.
wet pomegranate - Great, Until-
It’s great, until you realize that this app is supposedly “17+” rated, yet steals add revenue from its own creators, because they said something the moderators didn’t like. And as soon as the creators apply for an appeal for their video, that they spent hours making, it takes months for it to be even looked at, and at that point, all the possible revenue these people could have earned is gone. They’re also extremely biased. I’ve seen many channels I’ve watched taken down for little to no reason, yet showing a dead body on screen to make money off impressionable small children is acceptable? It took three days for that video to be removed, which is absolutely ridiculous considering if it was any other channel who had posted it, they would have the video removed instantly, and probably would have had their channel taken down. Also, bring back the recommendations when watching the videos. I can’t even think of a reason why they’d remove that feature, but I guess they just want to steal even more money from innocent creators who are trying to make a living.
wtfmain - Good app back in the day
The links to videos has gone way down hill, especially on the app in the last few years. The app seems to only suggest something I have already looked up or seen for the most part, and suggests things that I have little to no interest in when it comes to things other than music, although this has been slightly better in the last few months it’s still a far cry from how good it was in the past. Furthermore it seems that now some videos are removed for there content while other videos that display similar ideas or problematic content, but from a different view are left up for some reason. If one person saying or doing something is deemed not ok then another person with the direct conflicting points of view must also deemed not ok, or else the is a one sided landslide effect that occurs. A truly open form for differing opinions, ideas, and beliefs of all is the only way for an online community to flourish.
Stoolskull - Too many changes
I love you tube. It’s a great way to learn things from people who want to teach or share their experiences. That said, that’s the only good part of You Tube. Ow the bad. What’s this craziness going on in respect to content being ok for children? Your scaring the heck out of some very good people. If it’s a concern, divide you tube into two apps, one for children and one for everyone else. Then add parental controls for parents to keep their children off of general content if they are worried about it, and leave everyone else alone! If you start taking my favorite content off the web, I’ll find something else to do! And if this is your way ofreniging on monetizing content and the people who make this content are hurt in the process I am certain that a msjority of viewers will boycott You Tubd in protest, and in support of their FS oritee providers.
Shane Kinnear - Why can’t you just give the chance for people to try it before making it standard?!
The comments section getting moved is extremely annoying, I usually don’t use it and prefer just to have it out of the way but that’s not possible now. The thumbnails being larger for the up next and suggested videos is also a bit annoying cause I usually pay a lot more attention to the titles of videos instead of the thumbnail, the only reason I can imagine they were increased though is so you could show larger ads without getting complaints about that so good job your getting extra complaints thrown in now also. Just make a section in the settings for experimental features, have it go for up to a week when toggled and if people turn it off early or use it the whole time ask for a comment about it. You’ll end up having people who don’t leave comments but you’ll also have the chance to test the feature with more than just a focus group and possibly avoid some anger. If you do this you just need to make sure people know the section is there
EragonMax1995 - Great app! Almost perfect
Like I said in the title, this app is soooo amazing! I have found so many funny videos, video game guides, music videos, etc, on here. But there’s only one problem and I believe it’s a bug. Sometimes I like to look and see what other videos are on here that are recommended for me, but I also like to watch videos or just listen to videos while I’m doin this, but after I add like maybe 4-5 videos to my certain playlists, the app just crashes on me. Please fix this cause it’s very annoying when it happens and I’d like to be able to continue finding new videos to watch while I’m also watchin another video at the time. If y’all fix that issue, there’s only one addition that I’d suggest you made to the app: a side button in the app that lets you see where your favorite YouTuber has commented or liked one of your comments on their video. If you can add that and fix the issue, this app will be perfect. Hope you’ll listen to my ideas.
Sevallis - Alright, but flawed in fundamental ways
The iOS app constantly forgets the actively playing background video when I lock the screen, and even if it appears on the lock screen to pause/play, trying to start and stop it via Bluetooth headphone burins also constantly fails and instead starts playback of something random from my Music app. This apparently will never be fixed?
Not being able to listen to video from my locked phone without paying a bunch of money monthly is rubbish and just eats up battery life.
Also, when I swipe a video down and then go to close it, get rid of that stupid bounce animation that moves it if I had just liked a video. That animation makes me miss the X close button due to it moving around and getting bumped by other notifications. Make the other notifications come up above the video at the bottom and not move the playing video minimized strip, and make it instantly move to the bottom predictably so I don’t miss the close button and re-maximize it.
Bobjtx - Updates = Decreased functionality
I have used this app a lot over the last 4 years. It has been a pretty good experience. However, I am not sure what is happening to human engineering at Google. Each new update seems to make the app less intuitive and more difficult to use.
1. Pausing a video to view something on the video in more detail (chart, text,...) is now impossible unless you know the hidden trick. Paused videos now darken the screen and place a LARGE play icon in the middle of the screen, making it impossible to view the paused video. This makes the large segment of teaching/how-to videos much less effective.
2. When saving a video, you no longer get to select where it will be stored. YT now stores it in the last used playlist. This requires you to stop, figure out how to pull up the saved video, and remove it from the wrong playlist YT saved it to, and then save it to the one YOU wanted it to go to. YT no longer thinks you are smart enough to know where you want to save the video.
Youtube/Google engineers believe taking options away from users is some type of “improvement”?! Give me a break!!
My recommendation is to no longer trust Google to do the right thing, and not accept YT updates until you research what less fortunate reviewers are reporting about each new update. It’s the only way to prevent losing useful features. And don’t even get me started on the increasing number of Ads YT is showing with almost EVERY video.
SynthWendigo - Ads
They push quite literal porn ads for adult mobile games, often using footage for something else entirely to pretend it’s not adult content, and then demonetize any creator who says anything outside of their radical left leaning biased. I get so many targeted ads for alcohol based on my age and location and have NO way to shut those down, and I can’t even use their support page, as I am greeted with an error saying I am not authorized to view that page. As someone who deals with drinking problems, and autism that’s forced me to stop playing games with predatory monetizing in place, seeing these ads constantly really does impact me in a negative way.
Including the GTA Online ones of their Diamond Casino adverts of come in to spin the wheel for a chance to win a new car.
I only bother to watch on my iPhone, and I don’t like being harassed to buying Premium just to NOT be bombarded with ads promoting gambling, alcohol abuse, and the adult mobile titles. I get they are targeted toward my age, but seeing beer adverts at 4 am is entirely out of line.
CareCare12345678910 - Great but one problem
YouTube’s great and all but like what about the cussing? And horrible videos like, Kids can be downloading this and watching all the horrible things a child doesn’t have to watch, And the worst is the advertisements they’re everywhere. And I hate them, Remove them PLEASE! I hate them, there the worst and horrible and sometimes inappropriate! I hate this, That so many kids download this and see the horrible videos that even sometimes are even bad for children! And now, They’re’s probably kids that say bad words, make other kids do it too, AND, Do horrible stuff in public! Make the system better! Like if you first download it you can make little buttons saying Kids on the left and teens and adults on the right and make the teens and adults do hard stuff while the kids just go in, also, Why do you need our emails, Email passwords, and Everything that’s almost personal? That’s uncomfortable. I’m just disappointed in this, something I love, I realize it’s bad, not for adults, but sweet innocent children I can’t bear to watch this any longer.
Tomoenage - So many things bad
Why do you censor everything, literally everyone hates it, stop changing thing that don’t need to be changed (like whyyyy tf would you only allow one visible video per entire iPad screen in the recommended videos area before you click on anything. Half the time you can’t see the title at first glance because of an ad at the top, and omggggg, stop messing with the comment section. Why do you not allow people to dislike comments, the children’s videos are sometimes not even children’s videos (I’m not talking about the type of content but I mean your own company’s labeling of videos due to COPPA. Like some music videos will be labeled for kids and so I can’t even watch them in mini player, tell me how does that protect kids?
My biggest problem is that you fix things that don’t need fixing and leave out/ ignore EVERYTHING that does. It seems like every year there’s more issues, I would gladly use another app if it came along, this app is riddled with easily fixable problems
DeviledEggsareGross - What the-
Everything is just fine, except for a few details, this may just be for me, I don't know. I am unable to watch certain videos because restricted mode is on, I assure you I checked and turned it off on multiple occasions. The other thing is that when I search for a video to watch, instead of the video showing up, I see movies, ads, channels, and other completely unrelated things to my search. This makes no sense to me, I have never had a problem with this in the past, and it has started happening fairly recently. I have checked here in the app store, maybe to update it, but I can't. I am confused about why this is happening to me, and if possible if you could fix this. If anyone else has had trouble with this, and knows how to fix this, please let me know. By the way, this is my first time making a review, it seems a little formal (Not really).
mgoldman78 - Overall good app but there are some problems
I use this app very often! But of course, any good thing also has some down sides. I think that you guys should ban the people who truly deserve it. And there are TONS out there who really need to get taken down(Mainly Logan and Jake Paul) also, I think the three dots by each video should be put in a different spot. Because if I am trying to press it, it will click on the video and I will have to try to tap on it repeatedly until it finally works. For example, say you see a video from a youtuber you dislike, you try to press the three dots to get the video off of there. But when you try to press it, it clicks on the video instead. You go back and try to do it again. But it clicks on the video once again. You do this repeatedly until it finally works. This has happened to me too often. But overall, this is a really well made app.
Basic Gamertag - Great app, but.....
I love this app, use it daily. Pay for premium... And this is where my only complaint comes in. I have had several instances over the past few months where I will be watching a video and an add will pop up. Sometimes it will take me a minute to realize it is even happening... I have my subscription linked to my Apple ID and will go to check to make sure that I do still have the subscription in my account. It’s always there.. I try to click the Subscribe to Premium option in the app and it strangely knows that I already am subscribed. It is beyond frustrating to pay for premium, have adds and get no reason as to why it is happening. The only way I have figured out how to get it working again is to use a new email address, either pay for a new month of service (again) and cancel the service on my original email address. Literally a 5 star app if it would stop giving me this enormous headache....
KarimoSmurf 99 - Its amazing and I love it
I love YT it always helps me with studying and when I’m bored i sometimes love to go watch my favorite Youtubers and I love to watch family videos talk shows and funny youtubers and when I feel sad or mad I watch there videos and they help me forget everything sometimes the quality might go bad but in a talk show u don’t really need to watch sometimes and it helps me sleep a lot from asmr and when I can’t sleep I watch YT sometimes and it really helps me fall asleep to videos that are not asmr just them talking or saying funny jokes or a family blog together and I love the way it’s always available it never says sorry it’s not working. Sometimes it doesn’t work cause of the WiFi but rather than that perfect quality all the videos u need sometimes movies to and if u install this app u will be much happier.
Aaugusta94 - Please fix this issue
Armys worked so hard to try and reach our goal and it was unfair for you to take away 67 million views. I can guarantee you that people did not use a bot to get 67M views on this video. Please understand that BTS has a very large fan base that spreads all across the globe. We are not a small group, and we show up in numbers, especially when it comes to supporting our artists. I am completely nonplussed by your lack of supervision on the issue and even more sickened by your lack of communication not only about your “new streaming policy” but also by your lack of communication to the number of army who have reached out to you trying to find a reason for the deletion. I’m also appalled to see that you have done nothing to help stop antis from mass reporting the video under false child abuse claims. You have not stated whether you will give repercussions to those that falsely claimed this nor have you stated a specific reason for the deletion. This is not the first time you have done this to one of BTS’s music videos but I hope it will be the last.
billyjoulreliford - Let our thoughts be open to the public
I feel from the president all the way down to a man living in his basement all should be treated equally and all of our voices should be heard no matter how loud or how soft we should not be judged by the content of what we say the public should be the platform if you allow yourself to be done as such your customers will be much more satisfied don’t ban what we say so we all have a thought and we all have a process I just pray to God that it all involves Jesus Christ above all this. The one that is probably reading this message I pray for you that you’ll use this as an opportunity to see Christ...I know that this world is a vicious thing but you can be a piece of the puzzle to spread love joy peace and happiness and help out a brother in need whether he be black brown yellow white does not matter have a blessed day
Lilminimoges - Update gone wrong!
The newest update of 2017 December. The video keeps switching to random videos during a video is going on. I cant watch ten seconds of video without it switching to another. So please fix this bug. Also fix your skip button. It’s showing up less and less. And when it does show up it’s for a 15 second video and not a thirty second video. I don’t know how many people have these problems, but it’s important to consider the viewers when you put a video in the link and can’t watch the video they want. I have many other problems to say, but that’s up to the media to explain not mine.
This is a day after my complaint. The new new update to fix the switching the video to another video decreased of chance to another video. I don’t know if your still fixing the problem, but don’t rush to fix the problem. I know you do want to keep us satisfied, but rushing to fix problem is going to make it worse. So please fix the problem correctly by not rushing to conclusion of being fixed and being done.
Pinhead Larry9432 - It used to be so different...
I have no issues with the app itself but it’s sad that over the years Youtubers are being demonetized for saying a few cuss words. A few years ago nobody cared but now you have people that are too sensitive for their own good. I get they have kids but it’s not like they won’t hear these words out on the street anyway. I mean come on the app is rated 17+ so i don’t even know why these complaints from parents were even taken seriously. This clearly isn’t an app for 5 year olds just put them the kiddie version of yt instead of denying these hard working people what they deserve. Censoring what kids hear and see leaves them in the dark about the world around them... also please give us a way to disable screen casting because it’s very annoying to constantly make sure it’s not connected with the tv.
With a new update comes an edited review....put the comments back. You don’t have to keep changing the app every couple of months it’s annoying.
Really? Again with the censorship. I mean come on this is way too much. Your censoring auto-generated captions? You guys are dropping the bar lower snd lower. I cant wait till these big you tubers move platforms so i can delete this app. STOP DOING THINGS NO ONE ASKED FOR.
.~sen~. - Why change the comments location?
The new comments are extremely irritating to me, the before convenient scrolling down to the comments is gone. The new comment section is hardly noticeable under the video description, and once I scroll past all of the now large video thumbnails(I can only see about two or three at a time) I’m faced with the fact that the comments aren’t there anymore. I’m upset that the update made seeing the comments so inconvenient, I like to be able to scroll down and see the recommended videos and then read comments. It was just scrolling down, but now if I wanted to do that I’d have to scroll all the way back up to see the comments instead of having the old placement. I’m sorry if this review is repetitive or doesn’t make a lot of sense, I’m extremely tired and frustrated atm and I don’t feel like reading this over.
Overall I enjoy this app, but I believe convenience is key.
Ducttapegurl - There is an issue with how videos load
For the past couple months I’ve been having an issue mostly with purchased content but often enough with regular videos too where you get about ¾ of the way through and then it abruptly starts playing the beginning of the video again but the time stamp is still going up. Sometimes you can close the video refresh the screen and it will play the rest of the video. But about a quarter of the time I can’t watch that last third of a video no matter how many times I try. This is especially frustrating with purchased content because the alternative is to watch on the google play app which is a horrible app.
Also the notifications system is dumb sure sometimes it actually gives on time notifications but I’ve been getting notifications for videos that came out multiple days sometimes weeks before I got the notification.
Roblox mobile - Gets worse and worse
this app was great before the latest three or four updates. i used the app daily before those updates but when they installed the apps performance and my rating for it went downhill. cant have more than one of the same video in a playlist, thats terrible for my playlist of band music. app doesn't run properly even when on wifi after entering my own wifi zone. drains my phone and iPad battery even when there is only one video running. all in all i just think this app needs lots of help and taking off the latest three or four updates and im sure it will work perfectly and my rating will go back up.
app is just terrible now i cant even do anything in my own wifi zone or any other wifi zone. service on data or in wifi is just not up to date and its like watching tv in 1965. yall really need to get your crap together and fix this freakin app cause its just terrible now.
Ethan "Eman" - Shuffle feature on playlists
You had it all figured out in the last update, now it’s back to what it used to be, a useless feature... Who in their right mind would want a shuffle portion that only shuffles the first immediate 200 videos and actually physically shuffle them not even jump to a random song while keeping the playlist intact? That is my only issue other than making it so ads play on every video in a playlist rather than what it used to be if you kept watching you’d get less ads unless you physically chose the next song.
Edit: To make matters worse you made it so when you do shuffle and hit he next button it doesn’t send you to for example: 3261, it just goes to the song right after it.
Having a playlist that nears 5,000 songs I would like that the playlist doesn’t physically shuffle and just skips to different parts of the playlist like how any other app’s shuffle works.
Boss Hawes - Paradigm shift
I definitely recommend this app. I don’t think it’s in any way an understatement to say that this app has completely changed the entertainment landscape for better or worse. Many attempts have been made to imitate, copy or replicate the success of this app, all to no avail. This app gives a voice to many humans who were figuratively dumb for all of the prior history of media. I don’t believe it’s an understatement to say this app is literally power for the powerless, hope for the hopeless, faith for the faithless, strength for the weak, breakfast for the starving, and much much more. Other than the wide spread use of the internet itself, this app has had the most profound effect on society any Jeff could possibly imagine. All that being said there are way too many adds on it now. I hate that there are adds within videos now. So much that I might stop using the app.
Itsmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee - Fixing things that aren’t broken.
First, it was the mini player, decent size, never took up much of the screen but wasn’t impossible to watch on, then they changed it. Now the mini player (when you swipe down on the video) is impossible to watch, and displays the title and uploader, as if we’re too stupid to remember what we’re watching.
And now, they’re at it again. Wanna see the comments on your video? Well, it’s right there, you just have to open it, and there’s one special guy who’s comment gets slapped on the face of the menu, how is this comment chosen? Who knows. What was the problem with the way the comment section looked? Now what we get is a tiny menu, and huge video suggestions under that, that just, kind of end. It’s jarring almost, you expect the scroll to be infinite, almost. The comments would keep going, now you get about 10 video suggestions, then they have to remind you that they moved the comment section. How about we leave that alone, and start working on treating your content creators well?

Just-Jared - Design fixed!
EDIT: Thank goodness they changed the design back. Please never try that design again.
Please change the design back. When you’re casting, the queue now blocks 1/6th of the screen so it’s a bother browse other videos to add to the queue. There was no good reason to move the notification button. Now you can’t access your notifications when your in the middle of a search. You have to exit the search window so that the notification bell shows up. Also, what’s with making all the icons more difficult to differentiate visually? Whoever is in charge of all these new design missteps needs to undo/revise everything. Don’t prioritise some postmodern idea of “aesthetics” over function. Also, the queue banner when you’re casting now blocks the bottom of anything behind it, so for example if you scroll to the bottom of the comments, you can’t read the last comment! Seriously, did anyone even test this new design?
I do not have a name. - Too many glitches.
Personally I love this app. But there is too many glitches no matter what there’s always a glitch. I’ll name three of the worst glitches I’ve encountered. Number 1. When I close a ad that’s on the recommended videos and I zoom in I can’t even pause or exit full screen I have to turn off my iPad and the sound keeps playing even when it is off this has happened two times. Number 2. The screen sometimes glitches by making it smaller and black screens on the side where the comment section and recommend videos should be, this has happened a million times to me. (a lot) number 3. When I’m typing a comment and typed some I don’t wanna post the comment so I end up press the keyboard down button but the bar is still there I have to press the top right of the screen for it to go away.
This has been my review and I’ve given it 3 stars please fix all these glitches.
Asuperstar3753 - Bugs, Swipe em’ away!
I love This app, I like watching videos, but theres a few bugs flying everywhere. Like other people’s reviews, they say there’s bugs, I mean, just try the app and I’ll prove those bugs are really annoying to deal with. I do know that you can sort it out but there’s a lot of bugs so why don’t anyone fix it, when this update says fixed all bugs, I mean, seriously? I don’t get it, how is that all bugs fixed? Does anyone reading my review agree with me, I feel SO annoyed, don’t make me refresh the app, listen to this story. “Ah, this is a wonderful video!” I said. “Ah! Glitches and bugs!” I try to fix the glitch but soon I have to refresh it. “Now I refreshed it, my video is ready to be watched!” I happily cheered. Soon I check my video......
“No! My video’s all gone, I really enjoyed it!!!! I’ll put revenge on you glitches and bugs!! Yearrrggghhhh!” I yell angrily as my video was all gone. That’s the problem with refreshing, it fixes it, but takes away the video you watch, so please, fix all the bugs. Bye
Dfonse11 - Playlists glitch
I’m encountering a glitch that continues to survive your updates (I’m using YT Premium). On some playlists (perhaps those with more than a certain amount of videos), when I’m changing the position of a video by scrolling it up or down and have scrolled the video past 3-5 other videos, the glitch arrives and the video defaults to its pre-scroll position, while the list automatically scrolls toward the bottom or back to the top. The only remedy as it stands with that kind of list is to proceed by a series of small, one by one or two by two positional changes adding up to the position one is attempting to reach; but even then, after each small alteration the playlist bugs out and takes me to a wholly different position, from which I then have to scroll to find the new, partly-changed position and begin the next scroll-leg of this pointlessly extended odyssey. A bug-free, smoothly alterable playlist (even a large one) every time would be splendid.
NisaNurÖ. - Love it but... - Please fix this!
It’s a very good app but I hate when we cannot write a comment that’s annoying and the adds kill me! Maybe you guys can change some stuff..? I hate when I want to write a comment and watch the video still an add comes up like whenever I go to write a comment there is an add and sometimes I cannot press skip on adds and when there is an add without the skip button I have to watch 2 adds and that annoys me so much , change that please! Bugs! That is annoying! I have an Apple device and I need an account to subscribe , like and comment and that kills me cause I had a Samsung device too and to like , subscribe and comment you did not need an account so please fix that! But it’s a great app anyway! Like it but fix it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
yeetsk - Goodness gracious this thing is a god🥰😍😇
First of all im just going to say how much i love this app...from watching my favourite content creators to simple tips and tricks the community provides this app is my second to go to google. And the subscription part: 😘. Being able to follow the people you like and be alerted when they upload is really useful.
One thing i recon could be improved is the fact that when you watching a video and then refresh the app the video your watching refreshes too meaning you have to repeatedly set the video to the right time over and over again. I dont know if there is any way to fix this but i would still highly recommend this app.
Sage of Breath-413 - Problem
Edit: think it’s fixed now somehow??
This is of course a great app but there’s one glitch that’s only appeared for me in the most recent update to do with comment replies. When I look at the comments on a video and click on “view replies” it works fine, but if I try scrolling down to view more replies to that comment it glitches out and goes to the next comment instead of just scrolling down to view other replies to the original comment. Sometimes (mainly on shorter comments with one or two replies) if I try clicking the x to take me back to viewing all the comments, it just gives me the option to report the comment for some reason, then I have to go back to home, subscriptions or trending or whatever to click on another video to get out of that, or exit the app. So yeah could something please be done about this? Thanks
Harrybo's Windmills - Very bad bug but otherwise is great
This app is great except there is a very annoying bug that I have come across multiple times. Occasionally when I’m watching a video, my device doesn’t recognise my touch on the screen. Strangely, the only thing that does recognise my touch is the video. Not the comments and not the suggested area, just the video. Even more annoying is I can’t close the app when this happens or change the volume. In fact I can’t even turn off my device. I simply have to wait it out and then my device automatically restarts but instead of shutting down, it sends me to my lock screen. I hope that you get a chance to fix it when you can! If this device-breaking bug wasn’t present, I would of given 5 stars.
Nazeem .c - Squish THIS bug!
I upload videos and recently I just uploaded a new one. But when I uploaded it I realised it was set to private, I set it to public but when I was done it still said private. I tried again. It didn’t work. so I reuploaded it and made sure I set it to public before it was uploaded. It still said private, I set it to public for the fourth time and it still didn’t work but then from the corner of my eye I saw something pop up from the bottom of the screen. It said something about an error when trying to save me setting the video to public. I tried setting it to public twice more but it still didn’t work and that’s what brought me here.
KBYE606 - A lot of glitches
Whenever I watch a video from a landscape and tap on a notification bar and go on other apps, when I come back, it would stay landscape, and nothing would let it come back to a portrait mode, not even switch videos from sliding up to see the suggested video. I tried locking and unlocking my phone from rotation, the exit full screen in the bottom corner didn’t work. Talking of switching videos, my phone would start playing the up next video in middle of my current video. I was mostly in the landscape mode, and I wasn’t even touching the scree. I realized this when I had just finished a 6 second ad, and it started playing another ad right after(a little sus). But this would happen randomly as long as I am watching the video. These glitches are really annoying and I hope you that guys patch them soon.
Jessie brub - This app is great but..
This app is great! Connecting through society and watching others do what you love to do! Although, there is this particular glitch that happened to me a couple of times, it’s when I watch a video and the time bar glitches out rapidly, going to the start and to my point of the video. Also, there is another glitch where I go to skip the ad but it keeps rapidly switching to “skip ad” and “video will play after ad”. And the last experience I had was when u had been in the middle of a video and I went to skip it but it put me back at the start of the video again. If you could fix this, I would be really happy!
213846652135468 - 3 major issues
1. On iPhone X’s, the options button next to each and every video doesn’t line up with what the GUI is showing, the 3 vertical dots are not in the correct place you have to press below the button to make it function, otherwise it just loads the video which is incredibly frustrating.
2. Screen tap glitch, video’s will bring up the pause/fast forward screen without making contact with the screen. Another frustrating issue.
3. When in full screen the shrink button is incredibly small and difficult to accurately press, similar issue to the 3 vertical dots (save to watch later button)
bobbythebeastt7 - Sub count annoyance
THIS APP IS EXTREMELY GREAT! But there’s one thing that just bugs me and i’m hoping u can remove this feature because it ruins some things for content creators trying to make subscriber specials. This problem is the rounded sub count, when a content creator (like me) wants to make a sub special they usually go onto a live sub counter and show them reaching it no u can’t do it, it just doesn’t feel as good. Also when you’re trying to study a bigger YouTuber you can’t (accurately) this really annoys me and i am begging u to remove this feature. Now I understand u removed it for a good reason it’s just bugging me soooo much. Thank u for your time and your app :)
Cody_Ross - Generally Good Performance
The app generally works well but there is a very frustrating issue. If I leave the app open with the phone locked or minimize it temporarily if only for a minute, when I come back the app seems to either close/reopen or just refresh the page entirely so if something was open such as a channel or video it is closed and the I am taken back to a refreshed home page. It’s not the biggest issue but it can be very very irritating, I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the app or just iPhones in general and I know obviously phones are different to desktops but you should be able to minimize something and be able to come back and it’s there waiting for you untouched.
Nikkilover68 - Terrible update
My app was working great until I updated yesterday and now it’s freezing every time I try to use it. The audio continues to play but the video is frozen. Then when I try to get out of it it won’t even shut down, I have to close my phone down and then double click to shut down the app. When I restart it it immediately freezes again. I tried to watch a different video and when I opened it up it was playing the audio of the new clip but still had the frozen picture of the last clip. Please fix! I use this app so often I’ll start having withdrawals soon.
DatDeadlyGhost - Arrgghh bugs!!!!
Great app, I actually prefer this to the desktop website. But bugs. Full screen is almost completely unusable. Sometimes in portrait mode the bottom bar from the home screen will show up and the video will be really laggy, and in landscape mode the video will sometimes be stuck in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. I also can’t exit full screen mode, the button doesn’t work and the swipe gesture doesn’t work either. Also when I was trying to exit full screen the app crashed. I am on the newest version as well so I don’t know why it is doing this. This is really annoying because I really like watching videos in full screen.
rhinop48 - Great but there is an occurring bug.
This app is a great app and I use it all the time, but there is one constant bug which hasn’t seemed to be fixed yet. This bug is the “ error while loading tap to retry” bug. No matter what I do or how many guides I follow, I can’t seem to get this to stop happening or reduce it. I have kept this app up to date with every update and uninstalled and reinstalled it but this glitch will not go away. It stop you from commenting, looking at the description, looking at recommended videos on the side, the only thing you can do is watch the video. And if you are watching a stream, you cannot speak in the chat and this bug seems very common using streams.
Black Sapote Tree - Ohhh where has the old YT gone?
I subscribe to a 1000 or more channels yet all I see are the same 30 over and over again in my subscription feed Worst still you dared to unsubscribe me repeatedly from 100’s of favourites like The Duran and Judicial Watch, on occasion refusing to let my re subscriptions hold for more than a reload of the page.
You censor conservative channels and drown me in the few Liberal ones I sub to. Further my first video off the rank on auto play is 80 % of the time already viewed, that is riveting as I constantly feed back “not interested” “as it is already watched”.
I used to love YT but soon I will leave and go to other platforms I have joined, the only reason I stay is it is familiar to this old dog.
Why did you ruin a brilliant platform?
Liberals ruining and ruling everything. Your censorship is blatant, frustrating and insulting, as most likely people half my age govern what I am permitted to see, like I am a child. I don’t watch YT for mainstream news but instead, for individual views. If I want mainstream news I would turn on my television.
Sack ALL the left wing fools filtering and controlling YT content and let us live again and be entertained.
A long time YT watcher, whatwhyandwhos.
Nanocaar - This Is Great For Entertainment And Audio But...
Personally, if you are recording a video and want audio, people are nice enough to post audiobooks and music on here as videos. There is also extremely high deleknis, meaning this is available on all apps. You can also watch streams, which means you can talk with other friends, strangers and peers, also meaning the person running the stream is doing that exactly now! But, one thing I don’t like and would like to be added, is how everything is non-exclusive to PC’s, Desktop’s, And etc. But not, IPad, IPhone And IPods. Like adding channel banners, great for Computers, but not possible for IOS such and such. Thank you for reading, and please fix this.
Buritto Boy Bob - Amazing but a few annoying bugs/glitches
Overall the app is great I enjoy the content and for most of the time the quality (Pixels) are good.
However there is this one particularly annoying glitch where I pause the video for a few seconds or so and it doesn’t let me start it again until I have to leave the app for a couple of seconds to than let the video start it is annoying and I hope it is fixed.
Thank you for your time and hope you receive this feedback and fix this bug
Trrentt - This app is good
Overall a very fantastic app with some annoying glitches. I will say one of the thing is the comment. I love a video , so I comment to share my feelings and to support the video. But when I try to type the comments, the ads come in and interrupt my typing. Fine, you can say it is how ads work, interruption is normal, but after ads, can the app bring me back to where I am interrupted. I have to scroll down all the way back to comment and start again, which is very annoying. Same things happened when I try to read some interesting comment, when the ads come in, I have to start over from the 1st comment. Please consider .
Elon96 - It’s Ok.
I like this App but I do have a few issues. 1, when I want to cast to my tv and I hit the cast icon, it doesn’t find my chrome cast then I have to shut the app off and re-open it then try again and it will find my chrome, althou it doesn’t always solve the issue, sometimes it will not find it till I turn my phone off and or try multiple times. 2, when watching a video, the time bar spazzes out or will just contine to say that the video is still at 0.00 time. 3, sometimes when I double tap the screen to fast forward or re-wind, it will take me straight back to the beginning of the video. Please fix these issues then I can give a 5 Star rating.
migget101 - Could be a bug from the update?
I recently updated on Christmas night (25/12) and after I updated I was going to use it for the first time that day. As I clicked into the app, a black screen showed for a second or so before loading into the home screen. So then I thought it was something else, so I exited the app and tried again two more times and both times had a black screen before. I deleted the app and installed again, but I don’t dare to use it just in case. If you can, please look into it and hopefully fix it in the next update!
But besides the bugs from updates, it’s a pretty good app
Nathan_robbo - Comment section
I use this app a lot. Some would say too much...
Now the layout of the app before the latest update, I thought, was great. In portrait mode, while watching a video you had everything you needed. Channel information, recommended or similar videos and at the bottom of that, the comment section. Such a simple design and easy to navigate. But with changing the comment section to make it have its own window doesn’t make sense? Just one scroll and you used to be down in the comment section. I don’t think the move of the comment section makes sense design or convenience wise.
oppyruknowme - Bring back the views for BTS’ ON
Can you like stop deleting their views as we worked so hard to get those views yet they got deleted l. Have you ever stopped to think that bts has about 24 million followers on Twitter and also has 33 million subscribers that if everyone watched the video 4 times it would easily have over 100 million views. Normally when you watch a bts MV you have to watch it 9 times to see everything, the first time to fan girl about the song, the second to focus on the dance, the third to look at Kim Namjoon, the fourth to look at Kim Seokjin, the fifth to look at Min Yoongi, the sixth to look at Jung Hoseok, the seventh to look at Park Jimin, the eighth to look at Kim Taehyung and the ninth to look at Jeon Jungkook. This means that it is very easy to get more 100 million views in the first 24 hours
(Not really) kind regards,
me & mine! - ALL Hallmark movies
I love all the Hallmark movies but every single one has something wrong with it. The sound cuts out at a crucial point in EVERY movie, at least once. They are often blurry or misplaced frame, or the ending is cut off and the movie is often different to what the title says it is going to be.
I know the membership fee isn’t very expensive but I work really hard for my money and I do not think it is unreasonable to expect you to give something in return for the money you are earning - what we pay for.
In anticipation of a correction of this matter I thank you for consideration of mine and I’m sure other people’s concerns. 😊
rockzy8 - Pretty stable, but also quite the opposite...
Every update seems to add bugs upon bugs, I don’t recall an update that actually improved anything for a while.
Although the app itself does perform quite well, there’s quite a few common bugs, some happen constantly...
Crashing has become less frequent but more issues with the app itself have arose, such as; videos constantly changing aspect ratio and strangely warping. The minimised video is zoomed into the corner of the video. Occasional crashing. The playbar going far off the video. Comments being left twice and casting platforms not appearing.
Hopefully this helps recognition come to these bugs!
Although there are quite a few issues, it plays videos very well, surpringly better than the website!
Livestreams also work very well, along with the placement of the chat.
The home page and ‘tab’ layout of it and when looking at channels is very easy to manage and very simple (in a good way) too.
Since the bugs can interfere with my experience often, I’ll have to go with 3 stars...
ChucklesProduction - Good, but glitchy..
Why is this not fixed yet? It’s been like a year... Basically when you comment while the video is playing it’ll randomly glitch up but not letting you pause video or delete what you typed in the box. Look, just have it fixed once and for all, it’s really embarrassing that I have to use to safari version -.- and annoying. Sometimes the screen is frozen but the video keeps playing. It’s annoying that I have to close it and open it twice sometimes. I’m surprised this isn’t fixed yet so please get onto it now so it can work beautifully. Also cannot find options to pay for advertising my content so... yeah.
bdjsbdjsns - Buggy videos
Recently I have been watching videos and the skip ad button will be glitching between numbers and the picture of the ad, also in the videos it’s self the bar which indicates the time of the video will be glitching as well, the bar will glitch the time of the video from 0:00 to whatever time it actually is on. Also the bottom right of the video the youtubers icon will be glitching aswell which is really distracting, please fix the problem as soon as possible, thank you
악동맘 - In the youtubers video section isn’t showing, is it just me?
So in the youtubers video section where all the latest to oldest videos are there aren’t showing up like only the main popular stuff that you would see after pressing their home screen thing and next to it is the video right, so all the videos in that area is gone like it won’t show up no matter what I do!!! Can you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaasssssseeeeeee fix it!? Or is it just me? It is just me then can someone tell me how I can fix it?
Jetr33 - Not as good as it was FIX IT!
It’s annoying when I’m on wifi that I don’t have an option to select that allows me to default select the highest resolution available for the video!
I have to continually manually select it and it’s extremely frustrating.
It’s also really frustrating that you tubers I follow a lot of the videos they post don’t show up!
I have them selected correctly but still nothing shows up half the time FIX THIS youtubers are struggling and I’m struggling to find the content half the time.
UnidentifiedName - Glitch...
I love this app, to get away from the rest of the world, to watch other people’s videos. BUT I found a glitch, not sure if this is because of my device or not. So I make it full screen then I exit it. Once done it only shows half the video and the rest of the screen is back. ALSO, sometimes I’m watching a video and in the middle of it the last sound repeats at least 5 times before closing the app without me doing anything.
Though I did say it might be because of my device though I doubt it as it does not occur in different apps.
Dagifial - Deleting videos
There needs to be more options than the two or three same that appear.
Not interested due to Australian News coverage is a major one for me.
I use utube due to its music and for no other reason. There are more adds etc on my page than music this has become very irritating. Please note l don’t won’t adds about haircuts, travel or any American awards nights.
Whilst I live in Australia I am only too aware of the bush fires that have been raging since September. We watch the news.
Rocky158 - Love it but too many ads. 😅 Requested features!👇
Queue and 'play next' features for the mobile version also please!! 🙏 Thank you!
Also please cut down a bit on the ads especially when i put something on a playlist so that, i can enjoy the contents without worrying about the selecting it, the ads will be so many and so long that, it's like i'm watching ads instead rendering the playlist feature almost useless. :v i wouldn't mind a short ad but it's like it is taking advantage of the situation instead of creating an useful tool for the user.
Πλς φιξ - New update has caused more bugs
When playing a video, if I press the pause button the whole screen it will glitch and then freezes, which I then have to try and tilt my phone to landscape and back again and wait for it to unfreeze. It also still resizes wrong when changing between landscape and portrait, which I have to do the same thing as in the previous issue to fix it. It’s getting really annoying and I hope that it is fixed with the new update.
Eupeideip - New features
I think that the comment section should have some new features, one in particular...it should have a search option so that you can search for comments or replies, the reason I want this is because if you ever respond to a comment someone else has written and then you accidentally close the video or your device goes flat it'll take ages to find that comment again that's why I think that it's a good idea to have a search section for the comment section
Kingo!!! - Gets Stuck!
This app is awesome. Use it all the time and like most people probably spend too much time. Although recently the app has been constantly getting stuck on a point on any video and crashes. I’ve got an iPhone X. But this has happened ever since I updated 2 days ago. Please fix because it happens after 1 minute of watching any video.
The image gets stuck the audio keeps playing but the screen is not responsive. Happened on my other iPhone 8 Plus aswell.
124954735482438453 - Some suggestions
So you know when you just searched something and you click on the wrong video and then that annoying channel stays in your recommended page so you should be able to delete certain videos from your recommended page and I also think that there should be a age thing so you can enter your age and that’s what the recommended page will have thanks for listening and I’ll see y’all later bye shout out to you if you know who that is
Jacko1108 - Turn over
I would like to see freedom of speech return and this platform stay but not just for those who can pay to play, and where intellectual property is stolen and one narrative controlled by a few dominates in the most hypocritical way. All done so few reap the financial rewards not genuinely earned, and wealth is stolen and not shared. The people want that if not this will have to be replaced with one who will. I hope that measure does not have to be forced for the sake of EVERYONE there is ENOUGH for ALL. This is my prayer in Jesus I AM name. What say you?!
Zack . D - Needs changes and features
So first of all when I am trying to watch 4K videos it doesn’t allow to even go above 1080P for 60fps videos and 1440P for 30fps videos.
Second it needs a pip features which can allow you to watch videos when using other apps. The iPad Air and all the iPads which use iOS 11 support pip which makes this feature even better that many can use it.
Also it would be better if videos were allowed to download for offline play. This would make it easy and I remember that at one point this was allowed. Around 1 and a half years ago this was there.
my password is 7 - General bug report for the latest update
When you do the thing (don't know what it's called) where you tap the little down arrow at the top left of the screen the video displaying in the corner shows only the top left corner of the screen. It continues to do this until you return to the video, at which point the video is shown at half it's normal height and continues to remain this way until you click on it at which point it will return to normal. Please fix this soon, very annoying to deal with, otherwise good.
Is great 2007 - Four stars
I’m only giving four stars because there are 2 glitches that stop me enjoying watching videos glitch 1 when I watch vids and there’s a add at the start it just freezes (it also sometimes does that when actually in a video glitch 2 (this one doesn’t really matter because it doesn’t affect the videos but I still thought I should say it) the voice search doesn’t work and I know both of these reasons is not my internet because my internet is really fast so please fix these glitches
Panda 16504689637 - Almost Good - except the forced Auto-resume
Everytime, I play a video, it forces me to start watching from the last time I stopped, rather than starting from beginning. I understand this auto-resume feature may be convenient for some, but it is pain in the b for me. Speciallybon my TV where it opens the video too slow, as it tries to skip to the auto-resume point and often hangs. If it plays then it is too painful to go back to the beginning and hangs again. I just wish, if I could opt-out of this painful auto-resume feature and force all videos to play from beginning always.
LEE LEE. F - Yeet

Miliy11 - Can't upload
I looked through the recent reviews and it doesn’t seem like anyone else has this problem. So I can’t upload my videos because when I go into the upload section I can’t click next after selecting the video from my photo gallery. The next option will highlight when I tap on it but it doesn’t go into the next window.
I’m guessing this has something to do with the smart touch added by the most recent iPhone iOS update, my phone being an iPhone 6S might also be part of it. Hope you guys can look into it!
I would upload from my laptop but I’m having a seperate issue with my phone cord.
Kylander skylander - Don't like the new swipe thing
I don't like the new swiping thing. You know, the thing where you swipe down and the video turns into a little box. I liked the old one better. This one is tiny, and hard to use with bit fingers. I'm not asking for you to increase the size, that would be even worse. I want the old swipe thing back. It was easy to use, and felt smooth. I know you don't have to listen to me, but please bring back the old swipe thing.
,£|+!}#?\*=]}!;&(8593/& - Current version change
Auto update changed it so I can’t access my notifications as easily, not a good change I always use my notifications to make sure I watch the creators I like. Please fix.
The notifications used to be in the main bar down the bottom, now a small icon at the top which means you can’t switch between notifications, subscriptions and recommended quickly (no one uses trending so you can put that up in the no man’s land at the top). Seems like an attack on creators, why make everyone ring the stupid bell if you’re not even going to prioritise the notifications menu. Seriously guys please fix it.
ameriti mane - Sasha Stone
Very Articulate, able to express from a Soul level, a very awakened man and hits home with his interesting interviews.
I only came across him for the first time just a few months ago because I was doing my own research into what was really going on with the Virus, my gut was telling me to trust in my own intuition for answers. He suddenly popped up during my many searches on internet and I’m a fan now...he has great energy and very passion driven on his quest to bring information needed to Humanity especially now. I hope to meet him in the near future in gratitude.
nevilline - You tube
I watch You Tube a great deal, music, vehicles, car racing, the Trump Show? There is quite a lot of entertainment on you tube and I will continue to use it.
My only gripe is advertising interrupting some videos that are short, songs I like to listen too,,mid way through an add pops up, completely spoils these things. I have an I Mac computer it got so bad that I paid to ban advertising on it,however adds still keep popping up on my IPad and mobile, frustrating.
C: :C - Problems
I have been experiencing problems with videos that I try to watch that’s been released in a timeframe of 6hours if I try watching it within the timeframe it will never load it it just keeps loading and after it’s a day old it will still not load for example the New York vlogs from jelly will. It load past a certain point after I tried watching it in the 6hour timeframe all other I waited up to 7hours to watch and it worked fine.

Awesome, love everything is good way better than the browser version.
gogovictoria - Bring back old
Not many people (that I know of) like the new update with the videos when you slide it down. I'm one of those people. Otherwise I love YouTube
Appcritic1217 - Please fix this bug!
I love YouTube, Its my most used app on my phone, it's. A great app and super helpful and entertaining. However, lately my YouTube recommendations have been really weird. The app keeps recommending content I don't watch and am not interested in such as sports videos, wildlife videos, random music video's, gaming video's, etc. And I barley get recommended any videos that I'm actually interested in. I have tried everything to reset my YouTube recommendations to show content that I actually like. Because of this, i am only going to rate it 4 stars. If you could please fix this bug as soon as posing or at least look into it, that would be great
Binks29865 - Phone goes on sleeping mode while watching a video on YouTube
Since I installed this update my phone goes on sleeping mode even while i'am watching a video on YouTube. Which is really annoying..in the past as long as the YouTube video is on playing the phone doesn't go on sleeping mode. Don't know what modification you've made. Please fix that ASAP.
Kshnsjcnns - "Something went wrong"
After the update, when I play ANY video, it shows the error message "something went wrong, please try again". I repeat, ANY VIDEO
Jay-Bæ - New update messed it up.
The app keeps crashing on me now and when I try to read reply’s to comments my screen freezes but the audio to the video will still play. Also sometimes I’ll go full screen into a video and it won’t let me leave full screen. Please fix this.
Slime-x - Too much ads / trop de publicités sur la version mobile
Since the last update I get too many ads during video streaming this is crazy / trop de publicités sur la version mobile
Matthew_09 - pause screen keeps popping up
every time i watch youtube the pause screen keeps popping up on my iphone X, tried deleting the app and reinstalling it but no success. It’s been a couple months now and youtube has t fixed it
Ren's Rage - YouTube is a Platform (new town square)
YouTube is deleting channels and videos for no reason. They are platform and should not be allowed to delete videos on someone’s opinion that they don’t like. It’s the new time square. Then they push the main stream media videos, which is 99% left. I go to YouTube for the news so I can hear many peoples views of a news story in one place. But if they keep shooting them selfs in the foot. They many push a lot of their creators away. The people who got them in the place that they are today. Wish they were neutral and transparent. There is still time.
thefixxer - Ads!
The endless ads every five minutes is unbearable, they need to go! All ads that is!
NO! I don’t wanna buy a new car and NO! I don’t care about your underwear!
kormotiv - Google Chromecast volume control and scrubbing not working
I've been a long time Google Chromecast user and have really enjoyed playing my YouTube playlist from iPhone to my TV. Since the last update the volume and scrubbing feature has stopped working after my phone auto locks after inactivity for some time. Was excited to see an update today and was hopeful it will resolve this issue. Unfortunately it still doesn't work. Google please fix this issue!
Gamer team1 - App wont open (May 22nd)
The app keeps saying it is no longer shared to me anymore therefore it won’t let me open the youtube app. Fix this.
Tipsy boater - Momo challenge
Get rid of the Momo challenge please !
It’s terrible someone needs to do something out it
Keira&Alice - YouTube is unreasonable
Absolutely horrible, deleted over half the views for no reason whatsoever
Papa mochi is hungry - GIVE BACK OUR VIEWS
GIVE ME BACK THE BTS ON VIEWS WE WORKED HARD FOR IT AND IT IS UNFAIR TO DELETE THEM😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 YOU CANT STOP ARMY FROM STREAMING JUST BECAUSE YOU DELETED THE VIEWS🥺🥺🥺
BrienneKB - The new update
The most recent update where when your watching a video and pull up on the bottom to view more videos, and you can’t click the screen to go back to the video is really dumb and annoying. You now need to either reslide down or click the x way in the corner. This is very inconvenient. I would like it to be changed back.
kriss558 - Says I have no connection??
Literally every time I use the app now it says I have no connection. I have 3GB of data that's always on and wifi while trying to use it no reason it's not working, and what's with all the ads now when it does work?
btsarmycan - Hate your guts for removing views off of BTS Mvs
I don’t like the way you guys deleted views off ON mv.. I sincerely hate it.. We spent all night streaming and you guys nonchalantly deleted millions of them. I hope you do better by them the next time
pureamoeba - They run ads intended to lie to consumers.
They now allow ads that lie, for example one just has a big “YOUR PHONE IS INFECTED, SCAN NOW”.
Some people may not know enough to know that this is a lie in a paid ad. Youtube should worry about their ethics more.
On top of this, their copyright strike system is broken and abusable. Hostility towards their own content creators is terrible. Too bad they don’t have any significant competitors to jump ship to.
mjlied - YouTube keeps deleting views!!
Bring the views back from BTS’s ON
Ganiela Maule - YouTube
YouTube is unfairly removing views for no reason especially on BTS songs
Specifically the new one called ON By BTS and the app has been crashing too

My Dreamers - Comment section update
The new Comment section update is absolutely bad and uncomfortable.
Many people see the comment after watch the video, but that bew comment is so hard to see all the comments and terrible.
rsryloth - You guys messed up
Fix the damn comment section
HAAANCJTH - Please don’t delete views thanks
hey maybe don’t delete almost 100 million views next time thanks.
Bell AKA Shachu - YouTube, what the heck?
Every video in my recommended section under the playing video is little kid videos and videos in other languages, nothing relating to the music or video I am currently watching or have watched. YouTube, what the heck is going on?
Gaming XD YT - Pls
Old YouTube better
donanime - Bruh
All of a sudden the app tells me to buy it from the AppStore 🤨
bunnylove19901 - Help
Normally it’s good, but it’s not opening on my phone through the app or App Store
Ddrosler - YouTube is awful
Stop asking if I want to buy YouTube premium 10 times a day, the answer will always be no. Why did you move the comments section??? Just keep it in the old place and also have it in the new place instead, would make everyone much happier if it were in both places.
Jacob D 1999 - New comments system horrible
Moving comments to a tab under the description is atrocious, the window that opens up gets shut down every time an ad comes on and you can’t read the comments/lose your place. Plus, it looks ugly as all heck.
SongsForever - Bring back the old comments section
This ain’t it. The new comments section is not user friendly. With the old one you could easily access it with a swipe. Also what is up with the super huge thumbnails for recommended videos?? Takes up so much screen space
Lay Collins X - Horrible bugs for content creators and chanels
Youtube has a less than favorable system when it comes to regulating views, likes, dislikes and comments. It’s not very helpful for content creators and can create confusion as well as setbacks for updates and videos.
This doesn’t seem dramatic, until it deletes 10M+ views on a certain videos, and then prevents subscribers and viewers from seeing it. Fix this problem as soon as you can.
kolekid8 - Say damm and it’s demonetized
You tubers are getting no money for the content that they make and if you make a video and it blows up and you got a small channel YouTube will think he’s boring he’s views make every single one of their videos demonetized. I miss oldYouTube
Fixyourgamenerds - Terrible idea hiding comment section
Why you hide the comment section under a menu? Terrible idea
Heyheygirl4 - BTS ON mv
give us our 68 mil views back
Terrarier - RIP YouTube
Sadly there is nothing better than it out there right now. YouTube’s quality is on a downward slope. Just because there is more people using it doesn’t mean it’s getting better. UI isn’t too bad but I know what I would do to make it better.

I can’t open the app? It’s “not shared with me” 🤷🏼♀️
A. Case - Latest update
I have no clue who’s idea this was but the new update changed the location of the comment section and it is the most useless and inconvenient design choice the YouTube app has made yet. I NEVER write app review but if you guys could kindly change it back that would be great. I get that it’s supposed to clean up and streamline the interface but it’s actually takes away from the user interaction aspect that I love about YouTube not to mention that if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, completely unnecessary update. Atleast make this one optional
xKirbz - New Comment layout is terrible
Too many presses to access comments. I hate the new layout.
Christipher F - Why change the ui
Put the comments back to the bottom I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to move them
Ilovebubbletea!!! - bring back our views
i know it’s very petty to do this review but i can’t just let this slide.
it’s so fecking disrespectful to remove views on a video that you know people had worked so hard to gain. especially if you know those people put so much time and effort into streaming those videos. we aren’t ‘bots’.

(X)Zavier - Messing around with the placement of the comment section
It looks like they’re testing with different comment section placements, on one of my accounts the comment section near the top, if you scroll down it will make the video smaller but not if you open the comments (this layout is ok). On another one of my accounts it just stayed the same. But on my other account it just makes the video smaller when you scroll even though the comment section is at the bottom (this is TERRIBLE). The layout that would work best is a mixture of these, if you’re gonna move the comment section up then make it so that when you scroll it doesn’t make the video smaller. (It was fine before the update though). (Looks like they did this... whether it was because of my review or not very good)
Sabrina Rivera - A bug that needs to be fixed NOW!
I’ll be watching a video while charging my phone, so I have to turn my phone a specific way to watch in full screen. I’ll turn my phone and it will be UPSIDE DOWN! I try to fix it by exiting the app completely but then it happens again it is extremely irritating because my iPhone needs to charge so if you want me to use your app more often then you need to fix that so I don’t have to take an hour pause to let my phone charge. Other than that I love the app I wish it wouldn’t randomly quit on me mid video also, stop flagging random YouTubers they Are the only reason you are where you are today check if what you are striking then think why you are taking a innocent video down for doing absolutely nothing. To the people:If you want this app buy it however comma it has some flaws you can inspire others with your words but be careful of the audience you are posting to 👉🏼👉🏼
Lovelan💕 - I’ve never had problems with this app before so I’m kinda disappointed
Just today I was listening to music on the app and out of no where the screen turns black but the music continued to play. I then click out of what I was listening to and restarted my phone, that helped fix that problem but then I went to my like list (I mostly have music on it for easy access). So I started listening to the music on my like list and whenever a video is done playing it atomically changes to the next video on my like list like it supposed to but whenever it goes to the next video my my list it freezes but still the audio continues to play. I left my like list think that it was what was causing the problem but this happens every time the app changes videos....... ugh please fix this.
emily rhinas - Can we have an improvement? (If you want to)
I would like a kids button beside the search button so that it will show all shows for kids. And! Maybe write down, Scary, Sad, Entertainment, Comedy, and ePiC. What I mean is, you put those stuff down beside the other buttons down at the screen and we can press it to see those themed videos. You can also do this! (If you want to do this one.) You can put a guest account for every member downloading this app, and they can add favorites to the video just by pressing a star next to the subscribe button, so we can watch those videos again or use them to show other people in real life! I do really LOVE this app, so I just wanted some improvements. If you want, you can do 1 or both of them! I hope you have a beautiful and lovely life! :) -Bee Buzz :D ❤️
u gud bro??? - Multiple problems.
Whenever I leave the app for a few minutes at a time, some times even less, the app restarts so I have to find the video I’m watching again. This may be a mild inconvenience but it happens so often that it’s a major inconvenience. I also keep on getting notifications from people I’ve subscribed to about videos they posted hours to days after they posted. A few times I got notifications a week after the posted, and sometimes it’s not even from someone I subscribed to. I also do not like where the comment section was moved. It was perfectly fine where it was for literal years, and the new update just made it more confusing, since I can scroll to the bottom of the videos in the feed and not see it there. Not only that but when reading replies it’s too easy to accidentally close the comment section altogether by pressing the X button instead of the arrow.
Trapped Paying! - Frustrating Recommendations!
No matter how many times I hit not interested on anything sports related, my feed is still filled with sports. I’ve then just tried to stop recommending this channel on every horrible makeup application video that inundates my feed, but I’m still clogged with them. Just all topics that I’d never be interested in at all, as should be seen in my watch history... which I’ve deleted time and time again, also deleted search history for the heck of it. Nothing. And if the feed actually does recommend a video of something I’d be interested in viewing, it’s a video I’ve already seen. My interests aren’t too complex either. Court trials, true crime are basically it. I don’t use it for music or any other instructional stuff. Please fix this problem. But since I’ve seen google searches with other annoyed viewers who get video recommendations of complete nonsense dating back to like 2014, I’m not holding my breath. 2 stars only because it has my trials on it.
Ronery084 - Happy & Pleased
I have nothing bad to say. I’ve had moments where I couldn’t comment on a video. I’ve had times on rare occasions the whole app would crash.
I do have one idea that I hope it gets added and wondered why it hasn’t be added already. Being able to type a comment while scrolling up or down a bit to reply to someone’s comment accurately instead of doing the whole “highlight all” “copy” delete what you wrote; read what they posted; go back to replying to said person; tap post a comment; paste what you copied and finish up before posting said comment. Facebook allows you to. It just makes sense.
To freely scroll up and down is just easier. Maybe even allow us to pause videos while typing a comment. Again, instead of doing the whole “copy all” stuff.
Aloreni - I shared with her the same problem
So when I look at the thumbnail for a video in my home page it automatically starts playing where the thumbnail was with no volume but with captions, and it goes to my history. I can't even choose if I want it to play or not and I don't want some of that in my history! And the worst pat is that when I click on a video and drag it down then scroll through my home page, a video starts playing from a thumbnail and the screen of the video that I clicked on is completely black! So then I have to close the video and go to history and watch it from there. Please tell me if I can fix this or turn it off, Also sometimes when I click on a video it buffers at 5 or 6 seconds and it won't load so l close the video and the app then open it again and it still won't load after 5 or 6 second!! Then I have to watch another video and come back to the video that won't load. Then it finally works. (This might just be a problem with my connection/data but I don't think so
Storm flare - One major bug
I’ve had this app for quite a long time. Years, really. I haven’t had any major issues throughout, but recently I’ve had a bug where, for a specific few content creators, there’s a bug with ads that makes the actual video unwatchable.
What happens is, I click on a video and it loads an ad. The ad then cuts and it changes to the video. This has happened, usually if there’s a loading error with ad. However, then the video cuts back to the ad, which doesn’t load, and cuts back to the video, and so on and so forth. I thought it was just a one-off, so I tried another video by the same person. Same issue. I restarted my phone and the app, no fix. I came back days later, same issue with the same person. I’ve only had it happen with two creators, but they are ones I would regularly watch so I’m a little annoyed.
Junebaby1962 - I love this app, but...
This is my favourite app, but when I put my music playlist on shuffle, it will play maybe one or two songs. After those one or two videos, it will jump back to the second video on the list (it shows my videos in order even when it’s on shuffle) and it will play it over and over and over again. And when I skip it, it won’t even go to the next video, it will stay on that video. Also, sometimes when I turn on shuffle, it will show it in shuffle order, and it will have the perfect order, but when I listen to a few songs, it will start on the song I just listened to, and shuffle the whole thing again. I don’t know if it’s supposed to shuffle over and over, but I thought that I should mention it. But, please fix these possible bugs, because once again, this is my favourite app. Thank you!
MomoMJS - Pls Fix
I like the app overall. But there’s one problem that keeps occurring. Every time I press pause/play a lot of times, the app completely freezes up. All the buttons and stuff still work but the screen just stays the same and doesn’t respond to the buttons I’m pressing. For example, when the screen freezes up, when I press play the sound continues as if the video is still playing. But it is not matching with the screen and it just stays frozen. I can only turn my phone off. Even when I do that, when I try to turn the screen on, I have to wait about 10-20 seconds or even more for it to come back on. I don’t know if this is just my phone or the app. But I think it’s the app because this doesn’t happen with any of my other apps. So please fix this bug. Thanks!
Doopdoopdo - This is ridiculous
All of the sudden my homepage has become FILLED with content I have never shown an interest in, channels I have never watched, and most of it isn't even "suggested" because of anything I watch either (which I would know since I just had to go through 20+ suggestions and mark *Not Interested*). I don't know if this is content you're being paid to push, but for an app where I get unsubbed from the creators I love, have trouble finding their videos, and don't always get notified about channels I have notifications turned on for this is inexcusable. Especially with rumors going around that the sub page might not be chronological much
longer, how are we supposed to see the content we actually WANT and SUBBED TO? Fix your app, or at the very least stop pushing this random nonsense on your user base. If you guys weren't the only option I (and a lot of others) would have moved on A LONG time ago.
Awesome guy123446789 - Does not work 90% of time with Apple TV
This app does not work with apple tv most of the time (streaming from iPhone 6+ via an Apple TV). Interestingly enough though, ads would play without a single issue almost 10 out 10 times, but when it gets to the content that i am interested in playing, there is a playback error 9 out 10 times. When I hit ‘Tap to Retry’ i have to watch another ad, there is an error after that again, and then cycle repeats itself again, again and again, indefinitely. At one point i had to skip through 10 ads, but i still could not watch the content i wanted to watch. Tried different video - same issue. I guess Google isn’t really interested if I get to watch what I want to watch as long as ads keep playing and ad revenue keeps coming in...
G17_____ - Horrible example of what a monopoly can get away with
This application is absolutely horrible. Even when no videos are displayed on the device, rather the app is used another device such as Roku or Chromecast this app drains the battery like no other! Even with this constant operation, draining the battery, the app often loses the sync with the controlled device. Battery drain continues even if app disconnects from the controller device. Furthermore, when there is a new release with supposedly bug fixes - the description of the fixes is typically an insult to users intelligence, with statements like “make world a better place” or such. Which barely passes as amusing once but is extremely annoying when repeated time after time in different forms.
Had the app been developed by anyone smaller than Google (or one of the big 5), it would’ve been kicked out of the App Store. The development team’s level is very poor. But then, being a monopoly Google can get away with anything. Even Apple is afraid to put this substandard and sloppy team in place.
45$jud - Bravo!
I can’t begin to tell you of the opportunities I have had to utilize You tube content for informational, “how to” instructions and just plain intertainment from my You tube site. The broad subject variety combined with the user friendly filter aid to assist with subject location are beyond expectation. I frequently inquire of my partner and acquaintenances who I stay in touch with if they have tried You tube for solution to some problem and find it is usually a missed resource. My one criticism may result from my computer illiteracy. I’m old, no computer or lap top and get by with my I phone. I have yet to find a way to segregate some gem I have uncovered for either future use or reference to someone I have tried to solve a conundrum for. I’ll keep fiddling. Thanks again.
SilverBluff - Lagging Inbox Tab
Ever since the introduction of the inbox tab about two years ago, there’s been this weird lag when I tap on the notifications tab where it won’t register that I looked at the notification. So when I go to a different tab, the notification will still be active (e.g., if I have two notifications, the number 2 will still be present even when I’ve checked the notifications). I have to manually go back in and check them again for it to clear, and even then it might not for a while. It’s very annoying, and after two years of development and even eliminating the messaging feature in the inbox tab, I would think that a company with as much money and resources as Google would’ve ironed this out a long time ago. (Also, this has been my experience across multiple platforms, i.e. an iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone X, and iPad Pro 2018, so it’s not specific to my device.)
TheLurkingGrue - A late April Fool's joke?
The new format is an absolute joke. If you tap the screen, there's way too much that appears over the video. Swipe up during this, and you might as well just put your phone away since there's even more display over the video. Showing the creator's channel as an overlay during this is absolutely redundant and worse than useless due to the fact that it's already listed below the video itself (when not in landscape mode), or by tapping on the video in the first place. If you accidentally tap on it, it either minimizes your video and takes you to the channel, subscribes/unsubscribes you, or clicks/unclicks the bell. The new swiping action to change the video is an absolutely horrible way of navigating, for many reasons. Try to wipe off a spec of dust on your screen? It's the next video. Try to wipe off a fingerprint? Next video. Try to rewind or skip forward in the video with the play bar at the bottom, but miss by 1mm? Different video. It's horrible. The entire format overhaul is, at best, a shameful mistake.
urboyHamada - It Kills My Phone
I love the app, it is probably the mist used app on my phone, but the app absolutely obliterate my phone in performance. When I’m watching a video and want to swipe down to close the video the app freezes but the audio of the vid is still working, I can here the vid. At this point my phone is destroyed, I close my phone from the side button but the vid audio is still on, I can here what is said, I keep punching my phone from the back, then after a minute of frustration my phone starts lagging, it’s screen opens then closes. At this point I restart my phone during the lag. This problem never stops, even after making the latest updates, but what is even weird is the description of every update is about bug fixes and performance being better. Please make something happen.
By the way, my phone is iPhone 6 Plus.
ZestfulElf - Fix the playlists
I have a few playlists with one of which being the default “watch later” playlist. My watch later playlist is full but sometimes I’ll still try to add things to it. A few days ago I tried to add a video to a playlist that I use when I teach my saxophone students different things and the video was automatically put into the playlist that I had last added something to, although I did not want to add it to this playlist. Last night I was trying to add a video to my watch later playlist and of course it just told me that there was an error. Now when I try to add any video to a playlist it will try to add it I my watch later and tell me that there is an error. The old system was much more time efficient for people like me who had more than a few playlists where they add videos every day.
Where's my glasses? - Why did you change the comment section? (Mobile)
It annoys me so much because I’ve been so accustomed for years to scrolling down to the comment section but there’s nothing there so I have to scroll all the way back up. It doesn’t seems like much, and I guess it’s truly not, but after making this mistake so many times even I start to get annoyed.
Also, I keep on exiting out of the comments section after the change because that’s how you were able to exit the Replies section in the old one, which further added onto my annoyance.
Call me stingy, but I’d rather it go back to how it previously was. What was even the point? At most it saves at least a second (not even a second to be honest) for the action of scrolling down to it. Also, there are sometimes videos that catch my eye as I do so in a way it does better to promote other videos than what they have now.
SirNickity - This app is part of why I don't own a Google phone
Google's software quality is amazingly bad. For a company that has literally innovated the Internet up to where it is today, they really drop the ball on simple things. Like proper handling of screen rotation. (Has anyone even had this problem in ANY other mobile app? I haven't. Yet it has plagued YT for years.) Or that one bug where video would restart from the beginning while audio kept going. (Thankfully that seems to be fixed now, but it was a problem for way too long.) With the latest update, YT is now able to turn my phone into a hand warmer. 30 min of video drained a quarter of my battery life. Well that's new.
I've got to learn not to update this app anymore when I finally run across a version that works. Or, more accurately, when the bugs it has don't affect me enough to care.
Get your $@!# together, Google. "It compiles" is not QA.
LostKiddo - The restriction mode, and removal of comments on child-friendly content
I had to watch a video for school, but the thing is that the video was restricted.
My father wants me to have restricted mode on to remove inappropriate videos. However, many videos I try to watch will be restricted, I’ll then go to watch it on the tv or my brother’s computer and I’ll find that the videos aren’t really that inappropriate. If you’re going to have a restricted mode, restrict videos that ARE inappropriate, not ones that only have a drop of blood in them, or have jokes that could be inappropriate to 5 year olds.
I would like to watch French videos for my class without the “this video is restricted” showing up to block my view.
I also can’t turn off restricted mode even when my network admin does, it’s annoying.
As for the comments, children learn inappropriate things from both the internet and real life. Removing the comments for child content is ridiculous and absurd; remove the harmful comments, not the entirety.
A child-friendly content maker I know lost the ability to receive comments simply because she put her videos as kid-friendly. She loved viewing those comments.
This is just my advice and viewpoint. I don’t really mind the app itself, it’s a pretty good app, the creators are just kind of ruining it themselves, not the app’s fault lol
Lil scert - Love this app! But..
I love the app but the new update is awful I mean why would you move the comment section now it’s just complex and annoying plz move it back.. but that doesn’t mean I hate the app like don’t get me wrong watching videos for hours is really fun but maybe move the comment section back.. noice app tho! :3 luckily I have an iPad tho it’s better on an iPad! :3 but for the people that have a mobile phone change to an iPad for better quality so it’s not a big deal for me but plz change it back for the other people I mean a lot of people have mobile devices and don’t have the time or money for an iPad so please reconsider changing the comment section back to normal and everyone sub to tia clapper and therebornmommys therebornmommys is my sises Chanel and also sub to my dog possum the pomskie that would make us really happy : 3 but I have screen time so gtg and yes I type really fast so bye bootyfull peopleeee
Tico en Corazon - STOP!
Stop demonizing and censoring content I understand nudity and racial violence/extremely graphic content but every thing feels non genuine and kiddish I understand that content and it belongs on yt kids but it the app is 17+ don’t censor mild or reasonable levels of vulgar language or content people like leafyishere for example was being demonized and censored to the point of quitting and leaving or how pewdiepie is the biggest independent YouTuber and got that way because of his suggestive edgy content and gameplay now he has gotten a bit stale and washed out by your policy’s it just doesn’t seem genuine or personal anymore the biggest reason for this platforms success is because it is personalized and genuine content that can appeal to any community or individual also the thought of creating seems great but you can’t take many creative liberties to make your content reflect you this turns many people off from creating thank you if you read this and I am just trying to spread this message till change of some sort is made
from Licoricewand ;) - Notifications Glitch? READ AND FIX
This is the most useful app out there for many things, but idk I just don’t think I want to rate 5 stars.
There’s a glitch, I’m not sure what really but every time I get a notification about a replied comment or someone commenting on my videos (which is a big deal as I’m a small channel with not even 30 subs) I tap to go to the comment and it’s gone. Nothing. I thought the first few times they deleted their comment but now I don’t think it’s that. After I tap on it there’s no finding it. If this is a glitch or happening to anybody else PLEASE FIX IT. I spend most of my time watching the same peoples videos and I leave a comment on every one, I have to be able to respond or like. And I can’t do that if it’s gone. Please fix this glitch.
I’ll change it back to four or five stars if this is fixed or explained.
βryan - Unwanted change
Can you please switch to the old card view when you pull down videos to search for others? It used to just fill the bottom right, but now it fills the entire bottom as an elongated card instead of just the video, and it even makes the video part smaller and chops off some of the top and bottom of the video which I dislike.
I don’t need to have the whole title down there. Go back to the old style and make the card of variable size depending on the video. I noticed that videos are actually 4:3 or of other lengths when viewing them in portrait mode now, instead of always showing in a 16:9 area with letterboxing. I absolutely love that change and it would be super amazing if you could implement the old pull-down card version with that addition.
I really prefer swiping to the left to dismiss those video cards instead of down with the new style as well.
ShadowKiss432 - Remove PREMIUM NOWW
Srsly why do we need premium we can just do it for free instead like the old days. Premium triggers me so much bc im trying to get prepared for the airport and it removed all my downloads so I need payment. I’m not trying to be spoiled by asking my mom for an itunes card your just trying to get money thats all you want >:( you just want money and nothing else instead you actually wanted premium and get more money than usual your stupid. Remove premium it’s pointless why is it called premium it can just be permanent but NO its monthly, weekly, or just a year and thats not okay. REMOVE PREMIUM PLEASE JESUS
You think your smart but your actually not. Premium is A N N O Y I N G. Remove premium if you hadnt have premium and let us download stuff you probably would get a 5 star but NO you got 2 stars by me 1 stars by other people but mostly 4 stars you have. Tik tok is better but mostly doesnt need premium because there is no point of having it. So what im saying is remove PREMIUM NOW
Dude of Sandbox - Some issues on iPad
It is a good platform for watching many varied videos, but suffers from some problems.
-Commenting has issues. Sometimes a comment infinitely processes with the “loading” symbol. Other times, it’s an issue to click out of writing a comment. You usually are able to tap on the screen away from the comment typing box at any time to close it and return to the main interface, but sometimes it just doesn’t work and you must close the app in itself. Replying to comments almost always leaves a double reply, which is more of a visual glitch since it reappears when going back to the comment chain you had left a reply on.
-Every video has a “Not interested” you can select. While watching a video, there is a recommendations bar at the right of the screen. The video at the very top of this bar does not have a Not interested selection, so if you do not like the video at all you will still get it recommended to you.
-The app randomly crashes often
-When scrolling through the play bar, most videos show you a small screenshot of what displays at that point in time of the video. Other videos do not have this.
-Finally, this one isn’t an issue but could be useful. Advertising options, such as not immediately starting the video after an advertisement ends for more information.
Avi Avalos - Needs a little improvement
I like the app it just has a few glitches that need to be fixed. When I start watching a video it takes forever to load than when it starts playing it stops about 10 seconds into the video and it says it’s loading when it’s not. I restart the video a few times and it stops at the same place so I close out of the video and try again. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn’t so I have to repeat the process multiple times. Another thing is that when there is an add it takes a really long time to load or it doesn’t load. I’m the middle of a video I close out then I have to repeat the process I do at the beginning. Than when it finally starts working correctly I have to find my place and that takes even longer to load. I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling but that doesn’t fix the problem.
EndertheFox45 - Needs one thing..
This app is good, and the problem is very minimal but I feel very important and it annoys people no doubt. Im going to see a movie today. What does that have to do with this review you may ask? Well I was doing my usual scrolling through the videos and then I saw the ending clip for the movie I'm going to see and it spoil a big thing. Kinda upsetting seeing I have been trying desperately to avoid things like that. Anyways I'm sure it's happened to loads of other people and I want to change that. There should be a filter in settings (yes settings because that seems logical) that filters out actual clips of the movies with it on unless people actually search for it. This would exclude trailers. It may take a long time to add it in but it would be for the better.
huongle92 - Please bring back the old comment section and stop scary ads
The new comment section is unintuitive. First of all, it’s hidden which is inconvenient because reading comments is my favorite part of watching videos. Secondly, if I expand a comment and want to go back to the main comment section, it keeps exiting out of the entire comment section, which now I have to expand and scroll down to where I was. This is super annoying. Also I dislike the endless video suggestions, I don’t even look at them now because they are all the way at the bottom and there are SO MANY of them.
On another note, please do not show horror movies trailer in the ads. Maybe ask for permission or preference first. Not everyone, whether adults or kids can handle scary contents, and many times the scary scenes and music made my heart jump. Please stop doing that for the sake of people’s mental well being. Thanks.
Neerfa922 - annoying bug PLZ fix!!!
I've noticed that when I watch videos on the app, the screen will automatically act as if I clicked on it every 10 seconds. I'll be in the middle of a video when the screen changes to what it looks like when you tap on it (with the pause button) and it doesn't sound like a big deal but when it keeps happening ever 10 seconds and the screen keeps dimming, it gets super annoying. Been happening for months. PLEASE FIX THIS. I'm not sure if you understand what I'm saying because I don't know how to word this. Basically, when watching a video in full screen, the video will dim every 5-10 seconds and the "play" screen pops up, as if I clicked on the video, but I didn't. Other than that, love the app and use it almost 24/7.
veryunimpressed74030 - Not happy with newest update
After I watch a video it will show as watched but a few minutes later it takes the view off and it’s like I never watched the video. I usually watch a lot of videos a day and sometimes bounce from playlist to playlist! So it has been really hard to keep track of what I’ve watched & what I haven’t. Also I don’t like that it has been changed to remove a video from a playlist. You used to just swipe to the left and easily delete it. Now you hold the video down and the selection is at the bottom of the screen. I have accidentally clicked on videos while I’m in the middle of another video. All I wanted to do was delete! It can be pretty frustrating. Other than that, don’t know what I would do without YT! Thank you!
Jacob rocks!!!!!!!!!! - Playback Audio Issue
Up until now the slower playback speeds were working perfectly fine, and I would use the feature quite often because I find that it can actually greatly enhance the feeling/atmosphere of certain songs. But for some reason now when I try listening to anything at .75x speed there’s a robotic/metallic undertone to the audio, no matter the video. Going to .5x speed makes it even worse, to the point where I can’t even enjoy listening to the songs I’d normally listen to on this speed at all. I tried deleting and redownloading the app, but that didn’t help, so that leaves me to believe that this is a bug that needs to be fixed. Other than that the app is great, but I would really like to be able to listen to these songs again in the way that they mean the most to me. Hopefully this reaches someone, and if it does thank you!
Raccoon T-Bone - Needs a back button!!!!!!!
The app works like a charm every time. It’s so simple that you really don’t ever have to think about it because there seems to never be any bugs whatsoever.
However, it would be so helpful to have a back button. Sometimes you search out content and then take different suggested videos and then all of a sudden you accidentally tap a video with your big clumsy fingers voyeur video ends before you can replay part of it it takes you onto another one and you just want to go back to the last one you were on but instead you have to try to start over from your search and find your way back to the video that you may have accidentally dismissed, especially if you didn’t catch the title of your last video.
Binna's mummy - Refreshing comments each time a new ad is played
I absolutely hate this new phenomenon on YT where I could have been reading the comments related to a particular video when suddenly an ad comes on. YT will refresh the comments I’ve been reading and then send me back to the very first comments that I had read 10 mins ago, effectively losing the particular comment I was reading. I then have to scroll thru scores of comments to find the one I was reading before the system “auto-refreshed”. This sometimes happens over and over each time ads are played. So annoying.
I still have YT 5 stars b/c I’ve learned so much health and nutrition info, including great recipes with videos, over the last 3 months. I’m much healthier now and am sharing this with my patients!
KCM03 - IDK
Update causes app to no longer recognize Apple lightening digital a/v adapter. Now my phone will only do screen mirroring (it used to automatically switch it to AirPlay mode), which I personally would not mind, except that for some reason, i can no longer play a playlist if I am using my adapter. The app will play one video and then stop, even though I am supposed to be playing a playlist. I am not talking about auto play. I am referring to a playlist. And auto play does not work with playlists — because it is a playlist. I used to be able to plug in my adapter, shuffle a playlist and go on about my day with my phone playing video after video. Now, I use my adapter and then have to run back to my phone every time a video ends. Not good —not happy. This is not an IOS issue because it was doing this before I updated. In fact, I updated my phone because I thought it would resolve the problem. I keep trying to find solutions, but nothing has corrected something that was not an issue until now.
David Wonn - Comment Likes no longer go up. Fix it!
It took a while of seemingly endless update loops but the app finally finished an update. So far, some issues seem to be addressed, such as an active video in the lower right obscuring the ability to tap the 3 dots to the right of some videos at the end of long lists, such as Watch Later history and so on.
Upon further review, the Videos tab on every channel is blank, regardless of how you sort. That’s a MAJOR bug. [Edit: They have since fixed this, so I’ll bump up the rating.]
I like having the new ability to view replies to my comments on other videos without interrupting watching an unrelated video. I also like the addition of ¾ and 1¾ speed multipliers on videos.
Unfortunately some videos now get paused when moved to the lower right corner, though this behavior is inconsistent. Also I’ve seen delays on comments in live streams going as far as nine (9!) minutes with only a few hundred or so people in chat. Also I have my fonts magnified due to poor vision, and for some reason, bold text in comments on videos is unusually small.
So with the forced update, some things improved, and some didn’t.
Update 10/26: This app routinely removes my likes on comments shortly afterward. I remove the like and re-like it, and the counter is fixed, then it decrements. It is so obvious when I’m the only one who liked someone’s comment, only to see the number "1" vanish shortly afterward. Fix your app!
justanunimportantperson - Lots of technical issues
Now, I have to admit that I primarily use this app on a very old IPad, which probably contributes to the issues I’m dealing with, but I’m rating this based on my own experiences on the app and it would be dishonest to rate higher.
There is always some type of major glitch affecting the app; it tends to change randomly with updates. At one point it had a glitch where it would tell me I had lost my server connection when I hadn’t. Then that stopped happening and I got a glitch where the player would be stuck in fullscreen and the minimize buttons would no longer respond. Currently the glitch is that the screen will freeze for the first 5-10 seconds of a video, often with the video pitch black and with the audio playing fine. Most of the time it will unfreeze and continue playing the video. Sometimes it never unfreezes and the app crashes.
20000000006 - We will not stop until this is right 😡
Do you know how hard bts has worked to get to the top. Apparently you don’t they have worked harder than any person I’ve known. Bts has given us so much and all we want is to help them and I get it you need to keep tags on views but I can guarantee that those view aren’t bots they’re are real people THEY are army’s . TRY to understand that BTS has a very big fan base and reach to all kinds of places and even around the globe we all worked very hard to stream and give them the support they need. This does not give you the right to take away 67 million views you can’t take away something WE ALL have worked hard for. I hope you understand and give bts their views back and thank you for listening to my ted talk 👁👄👁
Cats2352 - Once you get it you can get rid of it.
I never signed up for this app it appears after I updated. Started at $10.** don’t remember cents and I finally figured out what the charge was I had paid couple of months and never ordered any music or videos. Then the price increased tried to cancel subscription and had no cancellation possible just says the script is expiring. So good I won’t renew and it will go away. Wrong it just keeps renewing. I have tried for a week and it is still charging. There is no way to cancel a subscription. I did a search for cancel a subscription I was instructed to go to my settings, no where in my ID is there a subscription tab, then I’m instructed to go to the App Store and use the pull down next on the right and select subscription. Now to remind you this is an Apple app, then go to i-Tunes. I finally found where print is for canceling subscription. Nope does not cancel it. Now we are back to expires in one month, that means more money for some I have never used.

Hacob Jarvey - Great App with dumb design choices
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Why why WHY did they feel the need to move the comments above the related videos? They KNEW this would throw people off because they have to put in a reminder that “comments have moved”, yeah WHY? And to make it worse, the comments are part of another “layer” so if you’re inside of a reply and you instinctively go for the X to close it out, it just closes you out of the entire comments section. STUPID. It’s just stupid little design choices the developers make upset the flow and usage of the app. No dedicated tab at the bottom for your own channel? Scrolling through a channels video tab sometimes doesn’t load past the first set? This is one of the largest companies on the planet with a powerful set of a tools and an immense staff, fix the little things please.
IrisKat:3 - recommendations are stupid.
I watched two vine compilations and ONE AlbertsStuff video. Now, my recommendations are piled with dead vines and Roblox videos. There’s not even videos from my subscriptions, which is just dumb, I should say. I always click “I am uninterested” but they never get deleted.
Do you people even listen to the reviews? You still have horrible reviews from two years ago. You keep adding new, unnecessary stuff, yet you guys don’t fix the vital issues that were probably there from 2 years ago. I hate to support this app but this is the only video app I prefer to watch from, because it’s the most popular, unfortunately. Don’t expect me to buy any apps or merch from this company until you get more satisfied customers. I only gave you two stars because I feel bad for all of you and your incompetence.
Once you fix these stupid bugs I will gladly give you 5 stars. Stop adding unneeded features and LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE THAT GIVE YOU MONEY.
Cgamer69 - Amazing, but there is an issue.
I don’t own a computer or laptop and I don’t have the money to buy one, so I’m stuck to mobile. Don’t get me wrong, mobile is great, but there is an issue I need to address. You see, I turned on captions for a video ONCE, but the always show captions somehow activated after I did that. I don’t want captions on every video, only that one, because sometimes a youtuber will include extra dialogue in the captions. The only tutorial for turning off always show captions is on the desktop version, which has a different settings layout from mobile. I tried using my web browser’s “request desktop site” but it will just automatically enter the app when I click on the link. Yes, I can manually turn off captions on every video I click, but that gets really annoying.
StrangePeopleExist - Why did you move the comment section?
I’m fine with the app. The algorithm is kind of bad and it always demonetizes and copyright strikes videos for silly reasons, but that isn’t why I’m writing this. The comment section has moved and I don’t know why? I was just watching a video and the comments were in they’re usual spot, but I clicked on another video, and the comments suddenly moved to right under the video? I don’t like this change at all and it makes me extremely uncomfortable. Please change this back. You can just completely modify something like this so suddenly after so many years of it being the same. I’m so used to scrolling to the bottom and I’m completely fine with it. Was there a mass of people who wanted this change? I honestly don’t see a reason to change that so I would really appreciate it if you changed them back. Thank you.
TechaddictATX - Great App - Needs 2 Important changes
I use this app all the time and I love it. That being said, there are 2 major things I would like to see fixed. First, I would like to be able to have a search box when I’m looking at a specific channel, so I don’t have to search through all of YT for that channel’s specific video. It can even be a lot just to search through that channel’s content for an older video, let alone the entire platform. Second, I would appreciate it if YT didn’t restart so frequently, causing me to lose my place in my video, even after navigating away from the app after just a few minutes. I’ve taken to adding every video I don’t finish right away to the Watch Later list, which is a bit annoying. Other than that, I’m really liking all the recent updates and reorganization.
Kev’s on the Bus - Mysterious Audio Bug
I have been experiencing audio from random videos playing in the background, videos I haven’t even tapped. It does not matter if I am scrolling through my replies, checking notifications, finding a video I actually want to watch. The only way to end the audio is to close the app and open again. This has been a problem that I have yet to see fixed in any recent update. Imagine how annoying it is that audio you cannot control forces you to close out of the app while you were about to watch a cute cat video. I would like this bug to disappear! And another one off of my list of demands is that I want it easier to tap timestamped links to times in the video from the comments section. And the option to not receive Stories in the feed. I use this app everyday, I would really love for the mysterious audio to begone 🙏🏾
Dowopbopbam - Very good app
This is a very good app, not perfect but very good! I will give this app a perfect 5 star rating when and ONLY when, they provide us with an option to filter videos on someone's page by viewed and not viewed. Not just a search bar or something because if you watch vloggers they may have the same video title lord knows how many times. It's not like this would be a hard feature to incorporate into the app and it would make a lot of peoples video searching/surfing so much more enjoyable. If a YouTuber has an off period where they don't post a video for a few weeks or something, I will, depending on who it is, go through their whole video list trying to find old videos I haven't seen yet which can take WAYYY too much time in some cases... SO add a viewed/notviewed filter and you will get five stars from me
Notash07 - Great but the instability of features is just awful
I would switch this right to five stars if they stopped doing this, they keep changing what features are and are not available, I always loved swiping between videos to easily go back if I mis-press and go to a video when I am still watching or mean to press a different video, with swiping all videos in the recommendations stayed the same as what they were before I went to a different video (I was watching video A which had recommendations A and accidentally hit video B, I could go back and recommendations A would still be there) this doesnt happen anymore. I now have to put videos in watch later if I want to see them, which is a hassle, and my watch later playlist is filled to the brim now of weird videos that seemed interesting at the time. And hitting the back button feels clunky compared to just swiping back. Please stop removing features, please.

@Jeonjktattos @missingjaebeom @the_defsoul That's not what "your favs" said though. I think you should listen to them more, that would make more sense. Or if you love GOT7 so much then go stream Breath.
