Decent  Sabbath336  3 star

So new version has popping thru speakers on any video. But happy they moved volume to top of screen so it doesn’t cover content!!

Ads on Ads on Ads, Videos don't even play


YouTube awful?  slightlypissedguy  1 star

This is more about the company than the app, but they’re really quite awful to any serious content creators.


Horrible battery drain  GQBert  1 star

There must be something wrong with this app currently. The battery drain is just terrible. My phone lasts 2 days now that I deleted it. I’ve been using the website instead.

Zezo awsome

Aspect ratio  Zezo awsome  1 star

You really need to fix the aspect ratio on the iPad Pro


Landscape App (besides video) for iPhone?  conte251  3 star

The videos can play in landscape obviously, but why can't the app itself also be in landscape on the iPhone? It can on the iPad and other Android devices (including phone!!) so why not here on iPhones? Drives me crazy.


Update  geovannilemus  1 star

This app needs an update immediately. There is a crackling noise on ALL video playback on my iPhone 8 Plus. I’ve tested the audio with all other applications and there are no issues. YouTube is the only app that distorts my iPhone’s sound quality.

Major audio bug  Kcwidman  2 star

On my iPhone 8 only in the YouTube app, the audio cuts in and out every 3 seconds. It sound like I’m plugging headphones in and out (but I’m just watching through the iPhone speakers). Please fix it. The app is unusable.


App keeps freezing  Djjdjfjejdxbdhehsndnbd  1 star

I will be trying to watch a video and then I’ll just freeze my whole phone, so I have to turn it off and turn it back on again to get to work again


Give me status bar whenever not in full screen mode  JR_A  1 star

Give me status bar whenever not in full screen mode, I want to tap it to the top and check the clock whenever not in full screen. Screens nowadays are way long enough to spare the status bar. Bugs and too many ads during videos, have to find alternative YouTube vid player.


Annoy notifications  TiChuottt  1 star

I didn’t turn the notifications on and I receive lots of notifications from the YouTuber that I subscribed


Used to be amazing but now full of glitches  TheGamer369  3 star

YouTube is my favourite app and pretty much the only app I use but lately it’s been getting some serious issues that are putting me off 1. BATTERY LIFE I cannot stress enough how much youtube consumes battery life I left youtube on (just on the normal screen not watching videos) for half an hour and it drained 60% of my battery life, 60 PERCENT YOUTUBE PLZ FIX THIS NOW 2. Sooooo many glitches it’s slow, laggy, buffering half the time and every video you watch always has this weird pause where you can’t do anything not even get out of the app or turn your iPad off it’s just frozen for about 5-10 seconds and it annoys me cuz it happens on EVERY SINGLE VIDEO (plus can I say that sometimes it will say for example a video has 341 views and 2K likes.....) 3. Demonetisation this doesent really effect the viewer apart from the fact that they get no ads when they watch a video which is good for them, but that means the youtuber can’t make any money because there video was inappropriate for all advertisers which is fine by me but when YouTube stars demonetizing minecraft let’s plays it gets dumb YouTube is an amazing app still because I pretty much watch whatever I want, but there’s just so many glitches which is making it almost unusable


Bugs + Ads  JPzooz  1 star

You need to fix the bugs. And control the ads as they appear in every videos

There is a bug which completely ruins the experience  Mechail budgie  1 star

I have an iPhone 8 and after a few days of using this update I noticed that it has this crackling noise this only occurs on you tube and not any other platform even games this is very very weird


iPhone 8 Plus speakers have a popping  N1kolas_5  2 star

Using a new iPhone 8 Plus and has to check with Apple if my phone was faulty but I believe it’s the app making the popping sound with playing videos


Arrgghh bugs!!!!  DatDeadlyGhost  4 star

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.

One of the best apps I’ve had


Why so many goddamn bugs  Kribiscus  2 star

Crashes my phone  Harknessles  1 star

Every time I watch a video, it pauses the screen so I can’t do anything every three minutes and then my phone is frozen for a solid two minutes before everything gets moving again only to do the same thing three minutes later and it’s an endless loop. It’s only YouTube too because none of my other apps do this.

Video won’t load or can’t be clicked  sonic breaker x  2 star

I won’t click a video, even the video won’t load, that’s only when I searched it up but using the history and watching a video on the home page works but the other doesn’t.

Can’t believe I’m saying this, but YouTube is giving out static signals when I play it on the loud speaker ! This is really annoying !


New Update Breaks AirPlay and Kills Battery  Jejrhdbhdhdbshdbkeia  1 star

Airplay plays for ~1-2 minutes then continues to play on phone but goes black on the TV. This version also drains battery at a ridiculous speed. Google please update your app.
