Fangdobgdemaomao - good
What has happened to YT is tragic. I have been a fan and member since the second year it came out, if I'm not mistaken. I've been on so long that I originally signed up with AOL be that was the only thing available at the time. That's how long I have been on YT. So I am a loooong time member and fan.
It used to be one of the best things that has ever happened to the internet. It was fun, exciting, mysterious, educational and groundbreaking. NOT ANYMORE. It is now a shell of its former self. It is now like everything else. Created only to make money. Ad after ad after ad. It's an invasion. I am interested in what people have to say or what they made or did. Now it's, insurance ads, political ads, censorship and control. It's worse than "reality shows" and reality shows are by far the absolute worse thing ever. I used to spend countless hours on it, now I spend less than an hour per week...if that.
Horrible. I'm just like everyone else...I'm moving on. The sad thing is that YT doesn't give a blip about what I think or what any of us think. This has been proven by its continued status of nonsense and greed.
Every update is NOT to fix a glitch it's to place a fresh batch of ads! No thanks. I'm
Jman2595 - Same videos keep showing up in loop and made for kids suggestions
Update (October 1,2022): the issue with the older videos not showing up in the subscription tab was resolved but has started happening again. Also I have suggestions for videos marked for kids, I think the comments could and should be brought back for all videos if you put a system in place that prevents people from posting comments that includes explicit or offensive language. Also I think the penalty for marking a video incorrectly should change from a money fine to a timed bane from posting videos. Again I would love to make and upload videos but I have interest in making videos that could land in the grey area making it confusing on trying to figure out how to mark the videos and I can’t afford a money fine of really any big amounts. (Original review)In the subscriptions area the same 5 or 6 videos continue showing up in a loop as I scroll down what should be older videos I didn’t choose to hide don’t show up instead it’s those same 5 or 6 videos this needs to be fixed ASAP also it won’t allow me to hide videos anymore(as of 10:07 p.m. December 3,2020) Other than those issues it’s an enjoyable and sometimes useful platform to watch videos on, I would create videos myself but I’m to worried that I would label a video wrong and then potentially get fined thousands of dollars.
Kcebttocs - Okay app, but…
It’s really annoying how I watch a video for 10 minutes then put my phone down for 2 or 3 to take care of something and when I go back to the app the video I was just watching is completely gone and I have to go through the process of finding it all over again. I would say I spend about 1/100th the amount of time I would on this app if I could just be fed the content I actually want. Instead of the videos from the creators I actually want, almost every single suggestion I get is the one video from the creators that I absolutely don’t care about. I’d say the app is about a 1/10 at suggesting things I actually want to see. Also, just too many damned ads. Anytime I click ANYTHING there’s an ad. I watch a video, there’s an ad before and after. I click another video after the last ad, and it takes me to another, even longer ad and doesn’t even let me watch the video I clicked. If I click a video, I have to watch 2 ads and if I want to skip halfway through the video to see what I actually want to see, I have to watch 4. This is in addition to the tracking that I know it’s doing on everything I do. Don’t get me wrong, there are still things YT does that you just can’t find anywhere else. But it’s like they exploit that to the fullest extent. And then they want you to buy “premium” or YT tv? I mean, make a good product first, THEN try to extort every penny out of me.
V87878787 - Comments, ads, restrictions.
If the video goes into an ad then I lose my spot in the comments. Basically the app closes the comment section to make me focus on the ad. The ads have gotten ridiculous. What was wrong with having them in the beginning of the video. Now they’re just slapped everywhere. I may have 30 seconds left on a video and boom ad. When appropriate I’m fine with the restricting of ads. When appropriate I’m fine with age restrictions. I’m sick of hearing about videos being taken down without a legitimate reason. See thunderfoot’s video debunking coronavirus conspiracies. I’m sick of creators being removed because you disagree with them. Unfortunately I’m not sure where to start with this as they just disappear. Speaking of videos not appropriate for ads - why do I get ads that are not appropriate for all ages? I get ads that are just rap videos with the “n” word and “f” bombs thrown around every few seconds. These “ads” are talking about drugs and drive by shootings. Why is that ok? Oh, and now I get constant ads for Umzu- a “supplement” company. Why is it ok to market unproven drug claims? Haven’t creators been punished for doing the same?
Wow - I just tried watching a movie on here for the first time. I turn the movie on and immediately get “ad in 5 seconds.” Literally 1 minute plays and I get another set of ads. The ads are so frequent, even if short, that I can’t get into the movie. Won’t try this again.
ME I SENT THIS! - A Few Annoying Problems...
I’ve been using this app for years and it has been great. It works well and is a nice quality app. I have a few problems though, and it has to do with the subscription tab. The first problem is that it will often say that someone has posted (showing a little blue dot on their icon) but they haven’t. No big deal, but if I click it to make the blue dot go away, then go back to a different tab (such as the home) it will put the blue dot back. That makes it so there is a red dot on the subscription button which just bothers me. It also usually happens to people with less that 1k subs.
The second problem I have is that I don’t get all community posts. I am subscribed to a lot of people, and a good amount of them make posts regularly. Maybe this is supposed to happen, but I don’t get them all, and I would like to.
The last problem (which I find more funny) is that when I click all to see everyone I am subscribed to, it shows everyone as normal. But, if I leave the app and come back, or slide up on my phone (to show brightness or flashlight) it will switch around the names so that they do not match the right person.
Other than these three problems, the app is amazing.
#kenkando3 - Strike December 1st, 2018
I have been hearing from U-Tube recently that the time has come to a head and that it’s time for truckers to show their reprehension towards the trucking industry as a whole. What have you been hearing out there?Truckers have been saying that for years. We all know that the only way to bring change is the house is to have change forced upon us. That change is going to be very hard to swallow, but it Has to happen and it’s been eventual for a long time! Between the railroads going on strike, was Carrie diesel and the DEF or fuel shortage rumors out there; this is going to force change to happen. It’s like nobody cares about truckers until it hits their home. Well maybe once truckers are parked because they’re out of fuel or cannot drive because their DEF system has failed call, maybe, people will realize what truckers bring to the table flashpoint this is still one of the most dangerous jobs and under appreciated careers. Truckers have saved the economy more than once, but once salvation has occurred it’s back to normal again.
Hgighjb - Bring Back Downvotes
Please stop the censorship. Let people communicate freely and decide for themselves what they think and feel. The internet has already become censored enough by the removal of comment sections and through rampant consolidation/mergers into monopolies or near-monopolies. Trying to direct comments into Twitter or Facebook forces people to join those sites which have become clearing houses for sale of people’s private information to companies and to massive profiling by the government. Both should be illegal. These aren’t the principals that America is supposed to be about and it will ultimately be bad even for the businesses that behave this way. Look at what’s happened to Facebook. Same thing goes for the music industry and traditional radio stations. Competition leads to innovation and improvement. Freedom of expression is essential to to our way of life, and censorship does not prevent people from understanding the truth. It just leads people to reject your business and destroys consumer confidence. People know that censorship of this type isn’t for the public’s benefit or for small content creators - it’s to protect powerful figures and special interests and to make the general public feel alone when they disagree with a message, or when they’re being lied to. Please do the right thing, it will work for everyone’s benefit. Thank you.
Kokoemo - Too many ads and too long
I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.
Bloomwish - Content and censorship
I like the diverse content available but abhor the censorship. Please don’t devalue the intelligence of your viewers. You can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. The respect for Diversity in this nation was once taught and respected. It is what has made this country great. That’s diversity of thought, the way we do things, approach problems, social norms, and perspectives, etc. We used to not force our will on others simply because we had the votes or power to do so because it is unethical. At the end of the day it should be “reason” that wins out because we have all had a chance to examine and discuss all aspects of why we agree or disagree. Then voluntarily adopt it and not be mandated by law or policy to. ALL voices have an unalienable right to be heard and a right to be rejected or accepted once completely heard. All voices have the moral responsibility to respectfully convey their position. The truth always comes out. Suppression of the truth or only allowing one narrative is like damming up a river—eventually the water will break that dam and flow freely in the messiest way possible. It will only come back to bite you later.. Encourage respect not sanctioned narratives.
Kelayans - Update Concerns
I am of the belief that a review should be about what is being done right and/or what is being done wrong. Simply saying you hate a thing is not helpful. This app has a lot that it gets right, from the variety of content to the searches actually doing their best to return what you’re looking for. I have found channels that I now follow thanks to the “if you liked that, try this” function. Hence the 3 stars… but
I will admit that the “algorithm” has been a bit unkind to some of the channels I follow. Blocking content for arbitrary reasons, being slow or downright unresponsive in the customer service department, and changing its own rules on what is and isn’t allowed at the drop of a hat. Now maybe YT’s rules are changing internally, but there needs to be consistency in them, and from what I’ve seen there isn’t.
Also, as I am a bit of an Odd Duck, I prefer to keep my watch history neat. If I accidentally click something, or don’t want the algorithm to start recommending things based on a passing interest, I delete this from my watch history. Since the update, this has become… difficult. If you’re going to update something… try not to break something else while you do it.
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
There Rose Smith - It gets annoying sometimes
Hello I just wanna say something about this app real quick first it’s a really fun I have to switch whatever you want to watch but the thing is it won’t let me download it like all the time because it always says like unable and stuff it’s keep like kicking me out and stuff it gets on my nerves and I get annoyed by it cooler only thing I’m saying is you need to fix some bugs in there because you keep annoying me and everything and I just always delete it but yeah but I definitely recommend that I only give it like a three star because I don’t know it’s just because it’s game not game sorry app that lets you watch anything you want which is really good I love it even with anything else like you can watch on your TV you can watch anything else on your TV but I still like this app it just kicks me out all the time and just kiss my nerves like I’m really mad or like a nerd so yeah and if you see somebody sick birds are messed up because I’m using like the mic so the place is sick ignore that and you said some other words anyways I just wanna say that this app kicks me out and it’s kind of like glitches sometimes and that’s how it kicks me out so you can pick some bags into town and eyeball so yeah that’s all I’m saying and yeah bye and please fix the bugs
Pencilsn - Fine, but one detail..
The app functions about as well as any app does. It’s nothing revolutionary, and I do think it’s gotten better, at least on the iPad version. However, there’s one issue (that really just annoys me more than anything.) On the bottom row, on the corner of the icon that indicates subscriptions, a red dot will appear to (I’m guessing) notify you that there’s a new video from someone you’re subscribed to. But most of the time, the red dot appears even when there’s nothing new. It’ll go away when you click on it and are in the subscription box, stay away when you go to a different page, but randomly appear again shortly after. Typically it’s when you refresh any page, but I’ve seen it reappear out on nowhere for no reason when I’m just browsing. It’s super annoying to think there’s something new when there isn’t. It’s such a tiny problem, but if you think about it, so’s a mosquito. That little subscription alert that shows up for no reason is like getting bit by a mosquito over and over and over again. I’m covered in bites and very aggravated.
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!
Group1-OG - Concerned about censorship and other issues.
Why demonetize and/or limit profit on content that isn’t child friendly when there’s a whole other app for that? Why demonetize and age restrict content creators for one explicative in their videos when multiple music videos showcase soft core nudity and are notably more explicit while having none of those restrictions? Why put multiple ads in the MIDDLE of videos when there’s up to 3 at both the beginning and end of a video? Not only are you wasting more bandwidth and space for yourself, you’re actively discouraging people to support your app. On top of that, why the 15 second unskippable advertisements? Why not just leave the unskippable ads at the 5 second length? And why double them? Not only that, you put ads on videos that are SHORTER than said advertisement. It’s even further discouraging your support and makes you seem more unappealing and unappreciative of your popularity while decreasing your utility. This is why you’re being more a disappointment than parents of a delinquent child, and like a delinquent child you’re putting minimal effort, if any at all, to remedy your issues.
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.
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.
Big problem with game - Amazing app! But new update ruined it.
And no, this is no because of the dislike feature being removed, though I do find that a really dumb idea overall. This is about how you KEEP PUTTING THINGS ON THE SIDE. First it was with descriptions, which I did find annoying, but not the end of the world. This however, is just plain stupid. Now your putting the comments on the side. Why?? What’s wrong with it being where it was before? All this is doing is making it harder to use the app. Not just from enjoyment, but literally. It makes it hide certain features such as the recommended video for the video your watching. And now you can’t see the original comment as well as the replies at the same time. Just really a incredibly stupid idea. I’ve been using this app for as long as I can remember and have loved it. I’ve embraced the changes I’ve disliked including removing the dislike feature, and have been find with it. But this? This is too far. Please please change this. It’s not helping anyone at all. Cheers!

Prelly33 - I hate the ads
Seriously I hate the ads. They’re overwhelming and intrusive. And no it’s not better “controlling” the ads with Google settings. That does nothing but ask me if I want random ads or tailor made ads. Tailor made ads engineered to encourage me to buy things I may like but in reality shouldn’t be blowing money on at an addicted rate on. Sorry I’m not Jeff Bezos, let alone employed.
How about this, I will buy those things, from those ads, from the companies you’re partners with to host these ads, allegedly some creators are being hypocritically harmed by certain ads but I digress; if you agree and Google agree to pay me and others interested in being paid to watch all these ads on all our devices in our homes. I’ll shut the heck and play all your ads.
Yes I write this angry but this is a lot of frustrations built over the years since the dawn of the ad-pocolyspe. Also stop with the recommendations and let me see my freaking subscriptions first. Oh and fix your stupid algorithms. You’re already loaded and backed by Google so get it together! If humans can make A.I. Create websites surely your staff of humans can create a better algorithm. Until then I’m here for the content creators not your stupid ads!
Pcdavis80 - I listen to the rain videos all night to sleep with and have subscribed to at least 100 sites.
I have so many interests from cooking Keto, the adventures of Marc Abel from Colorado Bigfoot and Adler Farms to name just a few. Some of the sites I visit feel more like family like The Hillbillies, Colorado Bigfoot, Grandpa From Adler Farms and more. I am grateful that it is free and all I have to do is watch sales pitches because have found some good purchases and items because of You Tube advertisements from awesome walking shoes that I also bought for my sister who loved them to an electronic that increases the charge on your phone battery in minutes. Thank you for providing use, the subscribers with such a great platform. I do have one issue that concerns me and that is censorship but I believe that issue will iron out when the next administration is elected. I had thought about boycotting you tube for the practice but have decided to wait and see what happens for now.
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.
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.
Any enormous - My most used app, but that doesn’t make it good.
I use this app to watch and support creators, and it does well at that, mostly. Everything else, not so much. Ads are so extremely common that it messed up videos. It used to be 5 second ad at the beginning, 5 second end. Now there are mid rolls in 8 minute videos, and each can be up to 30 seconds long. I doubt despite this drastic increase in ad amount/length that the creators are getting much more money. Also all of these terrible changes such as removing the dislike button are in no way supposed to benefit creators or the userbase. It is all used to support companies, yourself, and scammers. If it was really used to help small creators, they shouldn’t be able to see their own dislikes. Now more people are getting scammed by seeing videos with a ton of likes and no dislikes. Also please remove the new useless “we’ll be right back after these ads” thing. It just makes them longer without giving you money, so whats the use. I would give 2 or 1 stars if I didn’t use this app so much.
Anime Favorite - Are they actually fixing bugs as they claim?
What bugs are you actually fixing Google? For the last several updates there has been a bug that has obscured the like button, the dislike button, the save to playlist button, the share button, and the clip button. And now when I go and try to look at the comment section, tapping on the comment section takes me on to the channel. Like when you’re watching a video and you tap the channel button to see the rest of the videos on that channel, that’s where it has recently started taking me if I tap the comments button or the add a comment button. That’s super annoying on top of dealing with the fact that I can’t like a video whenever I want. Fast forward to now is the most recent update. Still haven’t changed. It’s totally random. It will let me see those buttons on some videos, but not others. U2 better fix this soon. I hope it’s not a problem that only applies with voiceover, because Google how to be prepared for someone to take them to court for violating the Americans With Disabilities Act if they don’t fix it soon.
Jbmore2005 - Not user-friendly
I think the app Is really good, I use it every day but there are some features that drive me nuts. The one feature I hate the most but I wish there was an option to turn off the feature where on your home page or subscribed channels and some others, on where it shows the Picture of a video before you select it, if you let it sit there for a couple seconds it starts playing the video on the Area where the pictures is. I might seem overdramatic but that feature drives me out of my mind, I just wanted to where I can see the picture and if it says some thing on there I can read it and not have to worry about it starting the video on me, I just wish there was a option to turn that off. one other thing I would prefer there to be is more options as in When something is added to the app and you don’t like then it would be nice if there was a way to turn it off instead of being forced to have it. Other wise I think the app is pretty good just a little more user-friendly would be great thanks.
Kkone1517 - UI was better before and now as of 2022 the ads literally make things nearly unwatchable
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”?
Delaware D's - UTube rating
My number 1 amount of viewing. Great series especially British. Do wish they stayed current and put in Series 1- ?? And programs. Call the midwife has been on for yrs in Britain. We don’t have all. Also Dr Martin, same with midsummer murders. So wish bodyguard went on . Love to watch the Royal family, I’m a transplanted Canadian, with a very British Mom. Love the music and video of concerts. I find Gary Barlow concerts and Take That really zippy and upbeat. Loved Boyzone, westlife. I could go on and on. The life with malamutes, Shepa, Penny the cat are a doze of fun. Shepa shows the beautiful British countryside. Oh my, escape to the country, is stunning. What great adverts for Britain. Enough, PS , I’m 74 and housebound much of the time. I found all music because 3 yrs ago Christmas my son suggested I watch/ listen to Last Christmas video. It brought back such good memories of Christmas in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. From there other British music and Michael McIntre such fun, Miranda. Oh my I’m rattling. Thank you U Tube Delaware D’s
Soothsayer 🎱 - The End
What has happened to YT is tragic. I have been a fan and member since the second year it came out, if I’m not mistaken. I’ve been on so long that I originally signed up with AOL bc that was the only thing available at the time. That’s how long I have been on YT. So I am a loooong time member and fan. It used to be one of the best things that has ever happened to the internet. It was fun, exciting, mysterious, educational and groundbreaking. NOT ANYMORE. It is now a shell of its former self. It is now like everything else. Created only to make money. Ad after ad after ad. It’s an invasion. I am interested in what people have to say or what they made or did. Now it’s, insurance ads, political ads, censorship and control. It’s worse than “reality shows” and reality shows are by far the absolute worse thing ever. I used to spend countless hours on it, now I spend less than an hour per week...if that. Horrible. I’m just like everyone else...I’m moving on. The sad thing is that YT doesn’t give a blip about what I think or what any of us think. This has been proven by its continued status of nonsense and greed. Every update is NOT to fix a glitch it’s to place a fresh batch of ads! No thanks. I’m out!
Willymlkids ipad2 - Pretty great! Few suggestions
I’m amazed over how the last few updates have been what the community likes. Of course, there are a few things that I would like however.
Definitely removing dislikes is something the community says. (My review might be discorded automatically since I said that) If this hurts the small creators, you can add a feature where dislikes can be toggled to be seen by the creator, but the community can see the dislikes no matter what. That would solve the problem of small creators being protected.
What thing I would like personally is mature rating. Somewhat similar to most streaming entertainment service companies such as Nexflix, a maturity rating could be nice. However, DONT restrict shows at certain ratings. Just tells the viewer what would they expect.
Finally, I feel like channels with a lot of subscribers (amount at your discretion) should have more freedom to move around. For example, higher viewed channel can get more copyright strikes(p.s this might save automatic unreasonable copyright strikes from getting channels terminated.) If small channels get protected, why can’t the big ones too? They have been trusted to build a fan base over the years.
Finally, this might not happen, but maybe we could choose what type of ads we want to watch. Maybe I enjoy game ads. Maybe I enjoy Morgan and Morgan ads. We should choose what ads we like.
Thanks for all the great new updates!
DL💕gJ - Opens up an encyclopedia of vision learning !
We really depend on You Tube to learn how to make , fix and build things !!! Especially if the directions we bought them with are scant or in another language ;) ( think kids toys , faucets, murphy beds …) It has introduced us to all kinds of subjects ( cooking , Montessori learning , gardening on all levels, bee husbandry, soap and craft making, even the best way to teach an anxious teen to drive ! - ) we love the hard working knowledgeable people we see! My family also depends on faithful freedom of speech politically, allowing people to make up their own minds along the way . Especially with careful viewing , analyzing and conversation about subjects histories. I have heard of U tube censoring or dropping a chosen video in histories and really hope careful protocol has gone into this practice . I guess we all need to look at our 2nd amendment.
Unless, of course , its about hacking . Ugh Thank you U Tube- you have enriched our lives and reduced frustration here on many levels !
VanzLV426 - Amazing App
Used it for over a decade, great performance, customizability, and over all a great video sharing app. Everything is simple to use, their recommendation algorithm is accurate, and can bring immense nostalgia in some places. You can discover new music, hobbies, video games, etc. that you never would have even tried doing. Watch people do crazy things you never imagined were possible. Very produced (unlike TikTok, no offense). And you can easily find your group of people/community that watch and like the same things as you. Crazy good app, 100% will recommend to anybody. Literally my only 1 problem with it is that you can’t see the amount of dislikes. Say there is a tutorial video on how to do something, and if you can’t see the ratio from likes to dislikes you don’t know if it actually works in advance. But putting that minor inconvenience aside, crazy good app and I plan to use it for as long as it still exists.
Fantaapp - Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPads
I use YT app everyday. I noticed that the pic-in-pic feature is always on and off. I has been stable in the past several weeks, but then after the most recent update, it disappeared again…very disappointing…
Also, I’m not very impressed with the new location of comments on the iPad version. Originally, you could easily skim through comments on the left side of bottom while skim through recommended videos on the right side. With the new location, you will need to click unnecessary extra times to open the comments and then close it before you can get back to the recommended videos. Given the typical screen size of iPads, the whole left side of bottom has been wasted (and users end up wasting time clicking more times…). I could see why the comments moved on iPhones (because of smaller screens), but I find that such a same “adaption” on iPad is a total useless deadweight loss. I would rather stay with the old version…
Le ZomGod - I come for the creators.
At this point, the only reason I am here is due to the content creators. The absolute atrocity that has become this medium of entertainment is beyond appalling. The sheer quantity of ads, upon ads, upon unskippable ads has left me to the point where I am WILLINGLY taking longer than five seconds to avoid any unskippable ad. I will close the app, stop the video, go back through my watched history, report them, I no longer care. Your insufferable need for money is disgusting. If one of the world's most wealthy monopolies can’t bring for better service after buying out this site, then you all have failed as people of the world. Your greed, evidentially, knows no bounds and proves that there is no low you won't go. Including removing dislike counters to cater to a few individuals that should not have any bearing on the overall usage of this, but the mass's outcry towards the increasing number of advertisements goes unheard. Or, it’s heard and disregarded. Regardless of what the answer is, you have failed. If a new source can bring all of my creators to one place in a more streamlined fashion, I will gladly delete my account from this site and never return.
Shreyas21 - Watch Later
Watch later playlists now only load 20 videos even if I use a different sort by function. If I use oldest or newest, only 20 videos show up. If I switch to manual, I only have access to those 20 videos. Every other playlist seems fine. This is one update annoyance. Furthermore, you moved the subscriptions to the 4th button from the left after years of it being in the center. I am tired of having to close the creator / record / upload screen after naturally choosing to click the center most button, WHERE YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. we got used to the comments even tho the UI within comments is garbage, and now you do this. Do you like making the app worse or are you just messing with us at this point. At best I could argue that it improves RAM and cache usage due to not loading everything unless demanded. A good idea done with poor execution is still a poor idea.
Emma's world 🤪 - Great app!!! Read this for honest reviews!
I have been a YouTuber for 8 months now. The copyright thing is pretty annoying tho. I have had a channel for like I said, 8 months. However, I have been watching yt for over 2 years. Ads are getting ridiculous and wayyyy too long. Also, you should be able to have the community tab under 500 subs! I have 250 and I rlly want the community tab!!!!! I just updated yt and I’m hoping that the bugs will be fixed. There have been bugs and issues with both uploading videos and watching videos. I’m hoping that this update will help. Also, 17+?!?!?!? There are 7 year olds on here! It should be at least 9+!!!! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and is one of the most popular social media apps out there! Btw I liked the update of not being able to see the dislike button. It honestly makes ppl feel a lot better about the videos :) 4 starts! Thx for everything!I hope u take the time to read this! Thx for an amazing app! ✌️🤪❤️
40volume - Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalized
Suggested songs can be irrelevant to insulting to the songs I chose to listen to. The next-up song generated are often the same song I’m already listening to but by a different uploader. The next-up songs are often not the same genre or mood, but more just the same time period but chart toppers. When I scroll to see auto play suggestions, auto play stops, so no music plays until I scroll back up. When I download songs, they can be deleted by the uploader and I won’t even know which song it was.
And the most annoying - when I see a song that is “next up” in autoplay, and I click “not interested “ for that song, I’m notified it won’t show up anymore, it disappears, and then autoplay plays that song right after.
Also, if I search a song I’ve searched before, the search still puts songs by the same name first (often contemporary songs by more contemporary artists), but the song I’ve actually clicked on and played, further down the list.

B-Rush12 - Removing Dislikes Was a Mistake
Let me just say that this is my favorite media platform, and the only social media app (or maybe more accurately, social media adjacent) that I still have on my phone aside from Twitch, Discord, Snapchat, and FB Messenger…and that’s it. And I say this because I want the app to be the best that it can possibly be, and being the best implies that the app has integrity. In my opinion, removing the ability to see the number of dislikes on a video is harmful and a major blow to this platform’s integrity. The like-to-dislike ratio was so often used as a quick eye test and a tool to judge a content creator’s credibility and the amount of effort and value that went into the production of any particular video. Removing this feature takes away the viewer’s ability to relay to future viewers whether or not that the content in the video, or the creator who made the video, was valuable/credible enough to consider watching their content. I hope this gets reverted in the near future.
Buoboo - Optimistic in life and truth
We have been optimistic about life in everything we do many people loved to read what is posted on this page it has let us express our views our likes and dislikes⭐️we form a club that made us be a part of something especially myself it has let me make friends around the world I believe my words has some meaning to someone that reads it we ask for peace and prosperity in all of these existential situation that we are going through we have two lovely souls that we are following for years and wherever life takes us we will always be together with the two of them (XWY1085) I wanted to encourage everyone to stand up for what is right an just🌍🌎 stop expressing hate towards one another but unfortunately life is not like what we think it is 💫 we are living in a world of technology and misleadings so the truth of the matter life is hard and no one wants to hear the truth Wolf!!!!!
Emmybears6 - Lots of problems but I still like it
First of all, many people are saying the same problem but every time I upload a video and say no it’s not made for kids it keeps saying that the comments are turned off all of my videos that I’ve made is turned off comments. Next, every time I wanna watch a video(well not every time but at least once a day) when I’m watching a video and I am like in the middle of it (it Has to be a long video though) it just goes to the next video when it’s not the end. And the last problem, when I first watch a video then add it to my liked videos or my Watch later One day later the video goes blurry but the editor didn’t edit it after and I am logged into the same account on different devices and it still does that on the same video. All these problems I don’t know what’s causing it. I hope you can fix it. Thanks for reading
Frizzlebratz - Not a fan of auto play while scrolling
I’ve downgraded the app for the latest versions. 1) auto play “preview” isn’t just annoying, it puts videos in my history that I’m not interested in. I look at videos while doing other things. I frequently leave the app on when I have to shift focus to something important. I then have to clean the history or I’ll get fed more of these unwanted videos. Useless “feature”. Improve the app by providing a toggle to permanently shut this off or turn it back in. Alternatively, do not add these “previewed “ videos in history so the user doesn’t have a distorted recommendation list in the algorithm.
2) Ads should not exceed the length of the video selected. Some of the worst have had 45 minute ads on a ten minute video. Set a maximum ad length as a percentage of the overall video length. Obviously you’ll need a minimum ad length for monetizing short videos or don’t let them be monetized below a set length.
Otherwise the app is fairly good. I’d upgrade my review for another feature as well: add search option for videos saved to playlists.
Technoblade 2.0 - Some problems
First off, I love this app. It’s easy to use and a great time-killer; but there is some problems that are annoying. First off, I hate the fact that you get forced to sit through 20 second ads without skipping, every five minutes. And it’s always the same as for me, and I’ve heard that the creators did this on PURPOSE to literally force people to use the Premium edition. Second off, there isn’t a ad timer on my phone that is like “Ads is 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…” but instead the ad just comes out of nowhere. Lastly, there is a weird bug that it something like a PC isn’t updated or the app isn’t correctly updated, Restricted Mode is stuck on and I can’t turn it off saying it’s enforced by an “administrator” and I don’t have an administrator. I hate giving bad reviews, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Please fix these I love this app just there is a few things I don’t like.
Skyler Stormer - Community Tabs
Overall, this is a great app and I use it a lot instead of the online website. But the thing is, as a mobile user, when I go to a specific channel and try to see their old community posts [only if I have missed a few days of their content and want to see what they’ve been posting. And if you’re gonna think “just scroll down in the subscriptions tab”, no. I have over a hundred subscriptions with some of them posting every minute; I’m not gonna scroll down that far] it doesn’t let me and says that it isn’t available for mobile or something like that. But I can perfectly see the community tabs in the subscriptions tab? But it still doesn’t work since when I try to open up the comment section area or try to click on the message to see the entire thing, it still says the same thing about it ‘not working’, etc. I’m unable to see full community posts because of this, please fix it.
DrakenTech - Broken
The recommendation system is absolute trash. Using the “not interested” option is useless after the last update. For whatever reason, all the video recommendations I’ve told it I’m not interested in and all the channels I’ve asked it not to show me are now back. Also, if I tell the app I don’t want a channel recommended to me; I don’t want it recommended to me out of spite on every single one of my other accounts! You know they’re mine because they’re all linked to the same account! I’ve never watched videos in Hindi, Arabic, Spanish, Urdu, Hebrew, Russian, Portuguese, or a hundred other languages; why are you recommending them to me!? I don’t watch sports videos, gender reveals, pop music videos, Minecraft videos, prank videos, drama, K-pop, or any of the other garbage trend videos; why are you recommending them!? I reach out to support and I get “your recommendations are based on your watch history”- NO IT’S NOT! Instead of taking a single iota of responsibility for the broken system, I get told it’s my fault. Then, even when I tell it I’m not interested, I get it and every video related to it recommended the next day! FIX YOUR SH*T, GOOGLE!!!!
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.
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!
Badbadger18 - Most broken app on my phone
Google has gotten so lazy. And don’t get me started with how broken their ad system is, and how they only care about making that $ and not monitoring what gets advertised on their platform, Really ironic that they get so angry at creators for not being “family friendly” but the ads are way worse and just plain disgusting. Other than that though i am on here daily
Edit: wrote this review months ago. Not only have the issues I’ve experienced not gone away, but now there’s even more issues. 5% of the time the Skip ad timer doesn’t count properly and i need to close my video (yes even if its an ad in the middle of the video). Sometimes the video just pauses and doesn’t unpause until you double tap to rewind 10 seconds, only it rewinds about 2 minutes because the video timer stopped working. I have lower end internet and it forces me into 480p even though 720p works just fine, every single video and i need to manually change it to 720p. Its a stupid new system they decided to make to make this already broken app somehow even worse.
Flowzn8r - Dislike feature
The recent removal of the feature allowing viewers to longer have the option to see the dislike count of a video lowers the overall quality of the app. This feature was supposedly meant to prevent creators from beings the victim of targeted harassment which is not a problem in the community whatsoever. The videos that would receive a ratio of more dislikes than likes most likely receives the dislikes due to the fact the videos are most frequently misleading, hateful, or display another feature of a video that should not be watched nor is it worth watching. YouTube’s removal of this feature now prevents users from determining the overall quality of the content they wouldn’t have to view had they been able to initially view the count for dislikes. Furthermore, the amount of likes on a video should also no longer be viewable by the audience due to the fact that this increases the chance of an audience member to like a video regardless of their true opinion. Overall YouTube’s recent decision making has been on a level that no company should be proud of.
Sony234 - Not happy
Very annoying issues.. subscription tabs red dot stays on even if there are no new videos. CAN WE HAVE A QUEUE OPTION PLEASE??? how hard is it to allow an option that already existed or exists now for streaming? Why can’t I put things in a queue to watch immediately and in a sequence rather than putting into Save for later and forgetting about it?? My save for later list is full now and because the app tries to automatically send videos to that list when you hit Save under a video, it doesn’t even let you pick which playlist to save it to if the list the full. It just shows a message that it’s full and doesn’t let you save it anywhere else from that page. I have to go find the video under the poster’s channel, click to the little three dots and then hit Save to playlist to avoid saving it to Save for later. Shorts has been nothing short of an infuriating mess that makes me leave the app. Recommendations in both Shorts or regular videos just stay uselessly stuck to either ONE channel or the same handful being recommended over and over.
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.

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.
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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
AllisonJayCee - Really unhappy with the double 15 sec ads!
Wth is with suddenly double-barrelling 15 sec ads? The start ads of every monetised video seem to now be all 2 x 15’s with no chance to skip. Really not happy, particularly since the number of ads per video also seems to be increasing. If only your advertisers knew that we’re more likely to watch a 5 sec ad & look away from the 15’s until they’re done. Also sick of being bombarded with the same ads over & over & over.
Also unhappy that people who deliberately insult, abuse people with absolute torrents of foul language, harass & antagonise people, all under the guise of being “First Amendment auditors” seem to have absolutely no checks on them unless the video contains actual violence. Reporting their videos does nothing. They still continue to abuse people for no legitimate reason in the most vile way, screaming abuse at them for sometimes 20-30 mins or more out of their video, yet somehow this doesn’t violate community standards?
BigBuckets - Needs work. Especially downloads and offline viewing.
I pay for premium subscription in order to download content to watch/listen offline and have it continue to play in background while the screen is off on my mobile device. I am also frequently in and out of mobile and wifi coverage. This app could really benefit from remembering where you were up to in downloaded videos. It frequently loses position when you come back to the app and you have to manually find where you were up to again. Also downloading content is very unreliable. Even if perfect coverage it just hangs and does not download, or gets to a certain percentage and stops. Doesn’t matter if it is a wifi or mobile connection. It is very hard and unreliable to restart or continue the download at a later time. I must say I expected a lot better and more refined experience for software from this stable - especially seeing how many million people are using it. It’s tedious and annoying.
Youi1er - Bring back the dislike count!
You have harmed the educational community by removing the dislike count from videos. How are people supposed to efficiently filter out good educational content without it? You have made it that I can only look at videos of well known creators that I know produce good content, leaving the little guys out of the picture. How is a new creator supposed to make it big if I won’t even bother looking at his/her content because I don’t know whether they make good content or not. Guess what? If I see a few of their videos with high like count ratio, I am going to keep watching them, subscribe and share their page, supporting their journey. What you’ve done has really devalued your platform and I only wish that someone else comes and monopolises the market you currently dominate! Not only because of this but more so of the facade you put to the public claiming it is for the “well-being” of creators! You’re liars and deceitful! If I could give this a negative star rating I would!
TheGhost2010 - Subscriber Bug
So I have about 12 channels (yes I know that’s a lot) but that’s not the point, I subscribed to one of my channels with all my other channels. So there should be at leased 10 subscribers on there, right? Well that was the case 2 days ago until I checked the subscriber count on that channel and it said “no subscribers” and I was like: well I’ve heard of a bug that unsubs you from a channel, so that probably happened. But I check on all of my channels and, get this, THEY ARE ALL SUBSCRIBED TO THE CHANNEL! How is that possible? To have over 10 accounts subscribed to your channel but have no subscribers?! Please fix this, I have a channel very close to monetisation and I really don’t want this to set me from hundreds of subscribers back to 0. So as I just said, please fix this bug.
Flinders 1 - I thank god for you tube
You tube well what can I say?
I suffer from mental health issues such as depression and if it wasn’t for you tube music where all & every song note is ready & waiting at your fingertips my days would be filled with pain & sorrow it truly gets me through the day. I put my favourite rap song on & get into it nice & loud and forget my day to day problems, it’s the best medication for my depression & anxiety . Every movie line & documentary ,comedy or tv shows old or new . Just everything & all of it is available through your network at your fingertips.
Great job you tube ,
I love getting up in the mornings now and can’t wait to put my first song on and get right into it .
Karl Carlson - Works ok but I have one gripe
Why do the majority of apps not work completely in landscape mode? I fully understand why portrait mode is considered the default. But what I’m curious to know is how much work would it be to make an app able to be used completely in landscape similar to how web browsers do?
The app that annoys me the most in this regard is YouTube’s mobile app. Would be useful to keep it in landscape like after watching a video. Like if I’m watching a video or two in bed it’s annoying to have to keep switching between portrait and landscape just to select a new video or to write a comment. Why not remove the restriction and let people use the app in ways that best suits how they wanna use it. Web browser apps have been doing this for over a decade why can’t more apps do this? It’s annoying
An honest puck - Ruined my life (and all of my friends!)
Great app 20/10
Doesn’t aim to just keep you addicted and harvest your brainpower for energy (clicks, ad viewing) like the machines in the matrix or all those other apps out there
Highly recommend to anyone who wants to ensure that they will never be able to escape the downward pull of technology, and who prefers some classic hardcore 2020 anxiety-inducing escapism rather than the achievement of any meaningful progress in life. Lose seconds and minutes and hours and days and eventually years of your life with this great app, I promise it doesn’t create and aggravate mental health problems and contribute to a low self worth and sense of regret from wasted potential. 69/10 would die again
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.
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
Corporal Turtle dweeb - Great app! Adding videos to a playlist while viewing makes categorising messy.
Great app, can get a little busy of screen, but that’s because of all the functionality.
There is an issue with adding a video with the +Playlist button while watching a video and it adding it to the most recently edited playlist, but when you press and pick a different playlist, the video isn’t removed from the initially edited playlist. So many of my playlists have videos meant for other playlists. It makes categorising videos I watch over and over very messy and tedious. It’s a quick fix and would make the experience heaps better!
Merry_christmas-joy - Only three stars, please fix
I would give this a five star rating because it is actually a great app, the only problem I have with it is the verifying that you’re over 18, you have to take a photo of your passport, ID or debit/credit card. I have trust issues, and this info is personal, I don’t feel comfortable sharing this information to yous especially if I have no idea what’s going to happen with my info, you have to be 17+ to download this app, so why do we have to verify that we’re over 18 if we’ve verified that we’re over 17. It would be understanding if the age was 12+ to have that 18+ verification, but since it’s 17, there’s no excuse, if we’re 17, that’s old enough. I just don’t like the way yous put the verification by us giving you our private information. Do better please
NicknameThTh - Great app, but it has a few problems
I really like this app and watching my favourite creators create quality content. But WHY remove the dislike button? This button provided users to determine if the creator was worthy. AND also now the creator can no longer get feedback on how many dislikes they have! And BRING BACK THE OLD COMMENT SECTION I find it irritating that I can no longer scroll down easily as I used to! Also, There is way to much creepy images and content on this app, I ask you to PLEASE look after your app a little bit more. Finally,please limit the amount of 15 and 30 second adds as I find them extremely annoying. Overall it is a really addictive and great app, but please take my advice.
222 Panda - Authoritarian censorship and Jimmy Kimmel
Bring back dislikes and comments on all videos, you absolute shell of a former great platform. Also PLEASE stop selling out to boring talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel that nobody here watches by putting them in your trending page every day. 5,000 views is NOT trending. This is why I spend my time on Reddit now, at least their dislikes WORK LIKE THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO AND ARE VISIBLE.
Bonus complaint: Why do you keep removing accessibility features in exchange for glitchy and janky garbage? WHO ASKED FOR FULLSCREEN FEATURES TO BE REMOVED? IT’S WORSE THAT I CAN’T JUST USE TWO FINGERS? What, are you making it accessible for anorexic blind cripples with no hands? Because it’s bad enough you are revoking functionality in exchange for good press? WHYYYYYY
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 .
,£|+!}#?\*=]}!;&(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.
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 :)
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.
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.
Stancedaniels - Bad update?
For about the last year the app has been getting a lot of updates trying to fix some the ‘bugs’ they call it. The app use to work very well, but recently works very poorly with cromecast and others, not connecting and dropping connection every time you use it. If compared to Netflix app which connects every time and doesn’t drop out.
The queue randomly closing before your eyes never to be seen again, needing a app restart but then you may need to find a way to connect it again as your cromecast isn’t on the list yet again.
Great app, too many bugs. Getting difficult to use :(
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.
Bigdog111111 - So bad
The new autoplay feature is so ridiculous, I can't even hover on the home page anymore because videos I have no interest in & didn't actually watch go into my history ?? The amount of ads is disgusting. Not to mention the algorithm when you search for videos is stupid. I can barely find new content because once I scroll for a while I end up in a loop of the same content over and over and they're usually the bigger channels. And then months later I finally come accross videos or channels that would've been perfect at the time but never showed up. So frustrating. Also there is currently no permanent 1080p autoplay. You can only select a "higher quality" option which is 720p and then you have to manually go into advanced settings on every single video if you want the highest quality. Literally makes no sense
Kangas18 - Great boredom buster
I think it’s a great app to go on when your bored! So many videos to suit your mood and current hobbies, it rlly helps cure your boredom! And you can make all kinds of videos to get tons of likes and views, and there’s really everything in there. Roblox, unboxing videos, heck there’s even Peppa pig videos if ur into that stuff! 😂 great app, would recommend! Not many flaws at all! 😍😍❤️ and if u make an account, u can comment and like and subscribe to ur favourite youtubers! ❤️❤️ personally I love this app, it’s quite addicting, also I’m surprised if u read this far, I can’t stop ranting about how good this app is!💕 anyways, bye and have a very merry Christmas 🎄
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)
Bonniefnaffan1987 - Copyright claim needs to be free just by giving credit to the owner of the music and the song
So new update idea copyright claim can be avoided by having an option to just give Credit to the owner and the creator instead of buying stuff but still give support to the creator it’s just annoying like copyright has to stop but stay at the same time like just crediting the creators would be better then buying premium or getting permission but just crediting them would be better and adding a permission track from the option when credit to them they send a permission to it from their end so it’s easier please make this happen because some of us don’t have enough money to get permission credit it would be better if credit to the creator was added as an option instead of copyright strike/claims for just giving credit
TheWizardWatley - A good service, but...
This is a good service platform for music, topical discussions and videos of kittens. However, there are several problems with the whole. First is the tendency of the algorithms to spew forth recommendations based on what could only be American consumer behaviour, which sensible humans do not adhere to. Secondly, while it is a good thing to have a reasonably open forum for expression of ideas and discussion, the tendency of the operators to cow-tow to the demands of the extreme left, the so called woke, leaves little left of open debate and discussion when the threat of censorious overreaction is all too likely. The operators need to maintain a neutral aspect in their curation of material.
Toddlls - The YT
Not a bad forum, lots of interesting content, could be more interesting content if the values of free speech were actually adhered to though & Google actually cared that freedom of speech we all love Uncle Sam for.
Also, I don’t mind ads- it helps pay for the service & system…… however the # of ads is becoming a bit of a joke. Far too many, far too frequent & ads such as gambling & promoting unhealthy foods/services/delivery are really in bad taste.
Society is having a health crisis & gambling is destroying the family unit.
I wish these things were taken more into consideration rather than just being run for the quick $’s
Cody_Ross - A Useful Feature
It would be great if there was a feature that allowed you to block certain keywords that might be in a video title - as to at least try to help avoid spoilers for things possibly included in a video’s title and/or thumbnail. There are work arounds to this on desktops with browser extensions but on the mobile app there is absolutely no control over avoiding spoiler videos unless you scroll “very” carefully or you could just never browse the app at all - both of which are quite unjust. There really needs to be a feature like this with the mobile app and the desktop/web versions too frankly, but at least the mobile app…please.
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.
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. 😊
Luna Enderpearl - Dislike button
I’d like for the dislike button to be removed, it is extremely degrading and hurtful to quite a lot of people. It’s upsetting to see so many dislikes on a video, and very harmful. I don’t have an account myself, but I know that it’s hard to see someone didn’t like your video, and therefor I would like if it was removed.
Other then that, I do enjoy this app, with all those lovely and kind YouTubers that I watch, and they’ve certainly entertained me during the pandemic. All that I would like changed is the dislike button, and make it like certain social media apps, where you cannot dislike what others have posted. It’s not kind and will make the person feel down because they’ve worked so hard on something.
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.
12345676375868585 - If you tube was bad, it would most probably be in an improvement
Too many ad not just too many ads, but what the ads are sport and betting neither of which I do, or I’m interested in then there’s the things that aren’t even in English which is the only language I know for some reason now it’s promoting baby products including nappies which I don’t have or I’m not one of Anne in the past promoted make up I’m a man which does not take part in utilisation of make up and then is the recommendations for some reason, it is currently hooked on rain and thunderstorms the recommendations have gone so far downhill that they’re on the other side of the fricking planet. Did I mention of fricking adverts we all have one every 30 seconds and even if you say don’t recommend it it’s still hell does it doesn’t actually care
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.
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.
Jjjjaazzhhhyy - Too many ads
To be honest this app runs well, it’s smart and sufficient. But the amount of ads absolutely crazy, it makes me not even want to go on the app because I know that whatever I am watching will be interrupted by multiple ads, up to 20 ads. Some as they don’t let you skip because they’re only 30 seconds long, I think it should give you the option to skip all the ads. And why would you even think of putting two ads back to back let alone and two minute ad on a video. Half the time I’ve never near my device to press pause and play and I let it run, I am then forced to listen to the ad. I think it’s absolutely silly all at should be removed or at least go back to how they used to be where it was like one add per video.. not happy
CORY> - Be specific
It’d be good if you could specify these bug fixes I think that would help users to work out whether they need to report a specific bug or whether it’s been fix.
I love how you can manage the order in which videos in your Watch Later tab appear, but moving them is a real hassle. The video you move could end up anywhere because the scroll feature has a mind of its own and gets away from you. The only remedy is to switch to another tab and then switch back to Watch Later and try again.
GAMES II LOVE - Very good app but…
It’s an extremely good app but they should really take out the dislike button because it might make people depressed because they have put there hard work into it and it has loads of dislikes and the worst thing is it randomly added restricted mode on and I cant watch anything anymore because I’m usually just sad and some stuff I watch makes me very happy and it has all turned age restricted and it won’t let me turn it off because it say my administrator has turned it on I don’t have an administrator???

Lovelybabcia - Love the variety
Prefer to watch you tube than free to air tv. It offers so much more . I love the documentaries , how to make things and even movies and biographies . You can tune in and watch what you want when you want . I love how you can access things form all over the world like craft channels from Brazil. America and England . Cooking shows and health programs . I just love you tube for myself and my grand kids . However I think some of the ads are ill timed and I’ll spaced . I understand you tube needs to make money but the constant ads spoil the viewing .
Pja-master - Need to change the progress bar for videos in landscape mode.
Excellent app, but recently the progress bar moved to the bottom of the screen when in landscape mode. It does not work with iPhones well as that is where the bar comes up for minimising the app, so when I try to move the progress is just keeps minimising rather than moving the slider. I don’t know why it was changed from how it was before. I liked the previous slider and the like/share etc. buttons visible in landscape mode. Should of kept that.
WWWobbly - Ads and bad ones at that.
The screenshots of this app (above) are completely misleading because they don’t show all the ads that smother the interface and it’s impossible to ignore them. I keep getting the same static ad of a woman’s crotch in leotards. So not only are the ads irrelevant but they are not vetted by Google which is the main problem with all social media platforms - they just have no idea what is relevant and what is trashy. Configuring my preferences for ads through an arcane system designed to confound is not my job. It’s the advertiser’s job to get the formula right and Google simply have no idea. In the end, I just run the web version with an ad blocker. Ironically using Google Chrome with an ad blocker extension. Happy days.
Aquinn39 - Very annoying video time teleporting bug
Getting sick of a bug that keeps on happening where, when double tapping to go back or forward or moving the red dot to a different time, videos will randomly teleport to different chapters for some reason. It’s making it impossible to watch some videos because I want to move to a specific time, only for it to teleport to the start of a chapter in the video completely far away from the time I wanted to go to. And to make things worse, this often results in extra ads playing, further wasting the time I’m spending just trying to get to a certain time in a video (which I tend have to do since often, when I tap to go forward or back 5 seconds, it just teleports to a different chapter).
HakonB007 - Been years and they still can’t fix the bugs
Every time the adds play they are seriously louder then the content being watched, to the point where if I don’t have the mute controller in hand for when the ads come on, I can’t watch anything on this app at night as people living with me might wake up.
You tube has know of this issue for years, and they still won’t fix it, all they do is try to add longer and longer ad segments at high volume.
It’s gone from any add being longer then 5 seconds can be skipped, to the ad must be over 30 seconds to have a skip option, and now they play up to 3 random ads, meaning you could have 3x 15 seconds of ads or 45 seconds with no ability to skip the ads.
So now when ads come on I simply mute it, walk away and make a tea or do swim thing else, and if I’m not back in time, I rewind to where I was.
It can be quite annoying when you have time constraints to watch something and have to be delayed by 2 lots of 3x15 second ads.
They simply don’t care about non subscribers and put out a lack lustre product.
If another company starts doing what you tube does, I’m jumping ship.
Stan lee21 - Useful update for creators
As a creator myself I think that I speak for a lot of people is that when we get likes and subscribers that instead of just piling that notification underneath bunches of others that you put it at the top in their own little section, also including when seemingly small creators get something like 100 views and so on, obviously use the same algorithm for the part that you use for the current notifs where the newest ones go to the top, it would be a lot easier for us all if their was some sort of organisation in the notification section of the app
SAMSUNG BUY ME NOW! - Great 👍
the reason I gave 4 stars it’s because sometimes I lose my account and have to make another.. 1 reason down, and, there’s ads I know it’s meant to and you can Idk maybe get money off it?
but anyway if that was 4half there would possibly be 1 reason I bet.. some ads are important and some are like: ooO this new iPhone get it now!: when it was like 14 years ago like stop doing these kinda ads but, anyway, there is basically another reason. It’s just that I haven’t gotten enough information from it :P. Lol, but I’ll probably add or idk to this when I get a lot of information ;) peace ✌️
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
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...

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.
A.B. Soccer - Great❤️
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.
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.
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
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.
Mjlied - YouTube keeps deleting views!!
Bring the views back from BTS’s ON
Keira&Alice - YouTube is unreasonable
Absolutely horrible, deleted over half the views for no reason whatsoever
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.
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
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
Curthann - YouTube
Love watching YouTube
Rsryloth - You guys messed up
Fix the damn comment section
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
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
Heyheygirl4 - BTS ON mv
give us our 68 mil views back
Ndjandjs - ARMY
YouTube if you’re reading these please listen! We’re really upset because people stayed up till 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 AM to stream bts’s new mv! We were so happy it hit 114 MILLION views and we slept happy knowing we broke the record! But only to wake up to see it’s at 46 MILLION? That’s not ok... please bring back bts’s views
Army’s are mad we beg you please bring back the views
HAAANCJTH - Please don’t delete views thanks
hey maybe don’t delete almost 100 million views next time thanks.
Gaming XD YT - Pls
Old YouTube better
Hell@youtube - Deleting views
Stop deleting BTS music video views . Bring 67 million views back , YouTube sucks , you nasty people
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?
Hax2056 - Bro stop deleting our views
On BTS’S new official video for their new song on you tire decided to delete 100 million views. I’m sorry, but what was the point of that. Do you feel accomplished for doing that???
Cormasc - dislike button no longer works

School project success!!! - Give us our views back hoe

Adding 2 unskipable adds 3-4 times per vid and deleting random videos
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.

There’s no point in advertising YouTube TV if it’s not available in Canada

Ethan2119 - Greedy
Blatant focus towards companies, celebrities, and investors rather than the content creators we love watching. Extremely janky systems for copyright protection that practically lets someone get a free buck off of content they had nothing to do with.
Its just vibing my guy - no
deleted views for no absolute reason. give it back coward - army 💜
Jaycee 😭 - Took major video down/deleting views
They deleted a mv and over 65 million views from one of their songs 🙄
Star*2161 - Show dislikes
The fact that it no longer shows how many dislikes a video has is ridiculous and makes it way harder to tell wether or not a video will be helpful

UrsaMajor777 - No Dislike
The dislike counter has been removed, I no longer know what crappy mega-corporation videos to avoid. Also, spend more time waiting for ads than for the video I want to watch. It’s going downhill fast!
TDN NOW - Wish I could rate this 0 stars
Terrible company that doesn’t care about its user base and has more interest in coddling to obviously unpopular accounts and corporations by removing the peoples way to voice their opinions. Bring the counted dislike button back
Sdhdccytfchhg - Bring back dislikes
YouTube is trash
FIX THE UPDATE THANKS - New Update for iPad
After this new update on the iPad you don’t see a row of videos you are only able to see a single video for the whole screen won’t recommend as it is very time consuming to find a video
Dbomb12345 - Bad platform
The way YouTube treats its creators is horrible. They make it almost impossible to make content. You’re not allowed to make edgy content or content that’s too child friendly. Hopefully YouTube can clean itself up in the future.
Asak2045 - Too much ads
