Remove the annotations at the end of videos!I find little problems with this app. Videos play flawlessly and previous issues I had with the audio have been fixed. For a while, it was a fantastic and simple app to use. Then came the end-of-the-video-annotations. This includes a button to take the user to the uploader’s channel; typically two recommended videos-based on the one they’re currently watching-and a button which takes the user to google play to download related videos. On paper, this is practical. In practise, it couldn’t have been executed more poorly; it takes up the vast majority of the screen and the final 15 or so seconds of the video are unwatchable. It is incredibly frustrating and countless users (including myself) are well aware of, and annoyed regularly because of, this issue, yet I see no attempts to have this feature removed or updated. I quite literally cannot think of anything that could be more annoying and intrusive on such an app. It is not necessary, useful or anything positive; it is simply frustrating. The person who implemented this needs to recognise that the sole purpose of a video is to be watched. After all, you wouldn’t start playing advertisements for other radio channels over the top of a radio channel that is currently playing; it would disrupt the audio, just like this feature disrupts the video. Have this fixed immediately!.Version: 14.30.7

Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalizedSuggested 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..Version: 16.46.5

A friendly suggestionI have a few suggestions. For example if I say I’m not interested in a video I would appreciate it if you could let me give description with as little or as much detail as I want, not a few stupid options that don’t really describe any problems that anyone has with this app. It says that you’ll tune my recommendations but how can you when your don’t know what the problem is. Honestly this has been bothering me for a while now but I didn’t say anything because I was just trying to be polite. I know you’re all working hard and I thank you for it but if you want at least another star from me you’re going to have to get that fixed. I still like everything else though good work, good luck, best wishes bye..Version: 15.20

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..Version: 16.22.5

STOP DELETING BTS VIEWS방탄 뮤비 조회수 왜 계속 깎아요ㅠㅠㅠㅠ다시 우리 조회수 돌려놔ㅠㅠㅠㅠ.Version: 15.09

Good, but glitchy..Why is this not fixed yet? It’s been like a year... Basically when you comment while the video is playing it’ll randomly glitch up but not letting you pause video or delete what you typed in the box. Look, just have it fixed once and for all, it’s really embarrassing that I have to use to safari version -.- and annoying. Sometimes the screen is frozen but the video keeps playing. It’s annoying that I have to close it and open it twice sometimes. I’m surprised this isn’t fixed yet so please get onto it now so it can work beautifully. Also cannot find options to pay for advertising my content so... yeah..Version: 15.32.3

IPad version has annoying bugsThe developers don’t seem to have paid attention to the ipad version. Overall a good app but lots of niggling things. For example, the playhead button is so small (even on my iPad Pro 3rd gen 12.9) that it’s very hard to use. Most annoying is that the app fails to record or show the watch history, so if I part watching something and return later, I have no idea where I left off. And looking at my download library, there’s no way to tell what I’ve seen and what I haven’t. I’ve had multiple calls with tech support (who don’t even have an ipad!), have deleted and reinstalled etc, but to no avail. Once sorted, it’ll be a good app but the tech department needs to buy an iPad and work through the bugs!.Version: 14.22

Bring back the views for BTS’ ONCan you like stop deleting their views as we worked so hard to get those views yet they got deleted l. Have you ever stopped to think that bts has about 24 million followers on Twitter and also has 33 million subscribers that if everyone watched the video 4 times it would easily have over 100 million views. Normally when you watch a bts MV you have to watch it 9 times to see everything, the first time to fan girl about the song, the second to focus on the dance, the third to look at Kim Namjoon, the fourth to look at Kim Seokjin, the fifth to look at Min Yoongi, the sixth to look at Jung Hoseok, the seventh to look at Park Jimin, the eighth to look at Kim Taehyung and the ninth to look at Jeon Jungkook. This means that it is very easy to get more 100 million views in the first 24 hours (Not really) kind regards, An Army.Version: 15.08

Sub countsI heard you guys are going to be abbreviating sub counts sometime this month and we don’t want that we want to be able to celebrate our favorite youtuber’s milestone along with them like for example, pewdiepie is due to hit 100 million this month there is so much anticipation literally everyone is excited it’s almost like the sub war has started again but there is no opponent to battle against if we can’t watch this momentous event we won’t be able to celebrate it and only pewdiepie will know the exact moment to celebrate and we will just simply be rounded off of course he would make a celebration video but it just won’t be the same as millions of people celebrating a massive milestone so please for the love of humanity don’t abbreviate the sub counts Oh and please release scare pewdiepie season 2.Version: 14.32

Really bad designWhy is there no back button?? This makes no sense to me. When I'm trying to watch more videos about a particular topic I keep having to search for it again and again which is really frustrating and makes me want to use my browser instead. There should also be an option to turn off the clickable links at the end of videos plus the information bar because they take up a lot of space and are distracting, but the back button issue is a lot worse. I will only pay for this app if a back button is added, when my free trial is done I will be going back to using my browser. PLEASE add it! (However there is an area where I prefer the app: night mode!).Version: 13.25

Hate your guts for removing views off of BTS MvsI 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.Version: 15.08

YouTubeYouTube is not a good platform they removed the dislike button bring back the dislike button.Version: 16.46.5

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!.Version: 16.46.5

Not user-friendlyI 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..Version: 16.41.2

Awful bug!!!!The app is absolutely amazing and I use it all the time. But there seems to be a bug job the app to where I can’t watch any music videos on the app with the original singing, all that pops up when I type in a song is the instrumental versions of the song then when I go to find other songs that I saved there is a little bar that pops up saying that the video must be approved first before I can view it but doesn’t give me the option to fix it. I haven’t been able to find any of the music I regularly listen to and I can’t even find singers accounts to view all their albums and music! It looks like everything has been totally deleted except for all of the instrumental versions which is absolutely not what I wanted to listen to. Also the comments, which I love to scroll through while the video is playing, is always saying that the comments have been restricted from my viewing because of some restriction mode that I didn’t even know was there let alone turned it on. PLEASE FIX 🚨🚧⚠️‼️.Version: 15.20

Horrible UI! Video controls are poorly positioned!Overall good application with a couple terrible UI features!!! 1. The controls (pause, play, skip buttons) positioned in the centre of the screen instead of at the bottom, where they are supposed to be. Hence you can’t pause the video and see where exactly you stop it because your hand is in the way. Moreover, if you’re using iPad, this cannot be done with one hand by just stretching your thumb. 2. It doesn’t support background playing like other players. 3. It doesn’t play if you turn off the screen which makes it impossible to listen to video or music without watching it or keeping the screen on..Version: 13.47

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..Version: 17.13.3


FIX YOUR APP GOOGLESince the latest update (which was 2 months ago, uncharacteristic from the normal weekly bugfix updates), I've been running into issues more and more. The two largest issues I've been running into: -Endcards in fullscreen: For some reason, endcards are placed way too far down in fullscreen, making them unreachable or very hard to reach. This is really annoying, but manageable. -Links in the Description: This is the an issue I've run into recently. Essentially, links in the description that lead you to other parts of the app are unclickable, showing you that indeed it knows you are clicking on it, but it fails to link you to the page that you clicked on. These issues could've been solved as soon as they were discovered, but it turns out that Google decided not to update the app for a specific reason: they'd have to give further privacy info, due to a new App Store requirement enforced after the day that the latest updates for all the Google apps came out. (They haven't publicly confirmed this, but it's very likely that this was the case.) So I ask Google: Get your act together, and fix your app!.Version: 15.49.4

The new updateThe 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..Version: 13.41

It’s Ok.I like this App but I do have a few issues. 1, when I want to cast to my tv and I hit the cast icon, it doesn’t find my chrome cast then I have to shut the app off and re-open it then try again and it will find my chrome, althou it doesn’t always solve the issue, sometimes it will not find it till I turn my phone off and or try multiple times. 2, when watching a video, the time bar spazzes out or will just contine to say that the video is still at 0.00 time. 3, sometimes when I double tap the screen to fast forward or re-wind, it will take me straight back to the beginning of the video. Please fix these issues then I can give a 5 Star rating..Version: 14.36

YouTube is awfulStop 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..Version: 15.19

Bring the old comment section backThe new comment section is super ugly and it takes me even longer to see it as its a habit to scroll down. I have had the new section for 2 weeks and i want it gone. Please bring back the old comment section, its harder for me and my viewers to see my pinned comment. Its also very annoying to have the recommended videos when watching a video for other videos thumbnail so big. It makes us not want to watch them. Please revert it to back how it was.Version: 15.26

Awful!Why can’t I report a video without a google account! Just because I don’t have a google account doesn’t mean I have no opinion on hate speech! People on this app are being hateful and abusive! You aren’t letting people do anything about it! You don’t care for the well-being of your users!!!! I thought you were reasonable people but you clearly only care about the money! And being the best! You are letting people get away with crimes! I hate this app!!!!!!!!!!.Version: 15.16

Too much adsToo much ads.Version: 14.14

Like and Save features are brokenLike and Save features are broken, often Save opens and does not show which list video is already saved in, none of the checkboxes are selected. Have to open and close, and repeat until it finally shows. On Apple TV UI is very uncomfortable, half of screen always blocked by massive track-bar, could be smaller, more compact, and not appear when just paused, because we pausing to see the video frame, not to see the controls. Also, watch list buttons is hidden behind so many additional clicks, so bad UX. On iPhone quality dropped lately. Mainly visible broken Like button, and very very broken Add to Watch list, or Watch List Edit feature, very laggy and broken most of the time. Lack of reordering options. Lack of tagging options for faster search..Version: 16.16.3

Say damm and it’s demonetizedYou 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.Version: 14.26

So many things badWhy 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.Version: 15.31.3

Bro stop deleting our viewsOn 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???.Version: 15.08

My channel name: ✰ annikasparadise ✰- gone forever please please fix this I cant take it anymore it’s been three weeks without my channel and I’m pretty young so it’s hard to understand but it’s making my life chaos all my friends are getting channels and there trying to help me I reset my iPad every day I try post everyday but it doesn’t work if you could fix it or even tell me what to do I would be so happy and if not I guess I’ll just be living in chaos From: annikasparadise.Version: 16.44.4

Watch later playlist 🙄I don’t know why this is happening but whenever I try to delete videos on my watch later playlist I can only delete one at a time and then I have to scroll up to the top of the playlist, reload, and then I can delete another one. This is happening on the app on my phone and it’s so annoying. Idk if anyone else is having this problem but it’s so frustrating. Apart from this it’s a good app..Version: 13.27

Not very good atmThe search is messed up, whenever I got to search someone it shows up with something completely different such as the time I searched up fortnite and got basketball. Another complaint is it keeps on automatically putting me on restricted mode even when I turn it off. I’d love to hear back from you guys to get some answers on both these things.Version: 14.36

Good app back in the dayThe links to videos has gone way down hill, especially on the app in the last few years. The app seems to only suggest something I have already looked up or seen for the most part, and suggests things that I have little to no interest in when it comes to things other than music, although this has been slightly better in the last few months it’s still a far cry from how good it was in the past. Furthermore it seems that now some videos are removed for there content while other videos that display similar ideas or problematic content, but from a different view are left up for some reason. If one person saying or doing something is deemed not ok then another person with the direct conflicting points of view must also deemed not ok, or else the is a one sided landslide effect that occurs. A truly open form for differing opinions, ideas, and beliefs of all is the only way for an online community to flourish..Version: 15.38.2

App itself is goodThe video/audio is great and it plays smoothly. The problem comes with the retarded updates it receives like moving the comment section up above the recommended videos. Like why? It doesn't make sense, nor does it sound like a good idea. Especially after EVERY SINGLE USER knows the comment section is below the recommended videos- they even had to put an annotation that says "The comment section has moved." It's just ridiculous. Then comes other annoying little updates such as, if you swipe a video down while you're watching it in full-screen, it turns into small-screen and rotates the player sideways. Again WHY? It doesn't make sense and though it sounds somewhat decent on paper, it's just a needless change that's extremely irritating. It's almost like they're trying to fill out a criteria of how many features they can stuff in the app. It's ridiculous..Version: 15.18.4

Give BTS their views back!I give it one star because the views on BTS’s ON mv got deleted like give them their views back like fr.Version: 15.08

YouTube is unreasonableAbsolutely horrible, deleted over half the views for no reason whatsoever.Version: 15.08

BTS ON mvGive us our 68 mil views back.Version: 15.08

UI was better beforeThe 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”?.Version: 15.19

BuggyI dont leave reviews often but this one is just hard to ignore. I think somewhere in the last few updates the app started glitching out. Started with just the video staying still on a frame while the audio kept playing, then it became pitch black whenever i try playing a video. Now when I open the app it doesnt even work unless i reset it a couple of times. Please fix thiss..Version: 14.01

SuggestionWould you be able to make a loop button for touch screen devices such as iPhone, it gets really annoying that you have to find a 1 Hour video instead of just pressing a loop button. Other than that and a few other bugs such as the screen rotation bug, it’s good..Version: 12.45

HelpNormally it’s good, but it’s not opening on my phone through the app or App Store.Version: 15.20

Need A New Report Section, PleaseI’m somebody who has really severe depression, and anxiety, and I am suicidal too. Nobody should be allowed to get away with a reply to my comment that calls me an ‘arrogant, ignorant scum.’ I’ve reported it twice, both in TWO different sections, because their whole paragraph fits into both. It’s disgraceful that what they’ve said hasn’t been dealt with, and removed. I wanted to take my own life with how hurtful their words are. How much do I need to report it, before you’ll think about saving my life and deleting it? I keep coming back it, because it bothers me so much, and I just wish it was gone. I beg of you, at the very least, please have another report section that says ‘other’ and lets you write down the problem. I know I’m not the only one who will have had hateful, and untrue, things said about/to them on the comments. Please, please, PLEASE. :(.Version: 14.39

So many problemsThe 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..Version: 15.28

The EndWhat 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!.Version: 16.05.7

Why remove the autoplay toggle button?The app is basically fine and works fine but with this update you can’t turn off autoplay. The toggle switch that used to appear below videos is gone and there is nothing in settings. You can’t stop it playing while it is timing down either so you have to wait for the new (unwanted) video to load before you stop it. Such a weird thing to remove, makes using the app really frustrating..Version: 13.19.7

Took major video down/deleting viewsThey deleted a mv and over 65 million views from one of their songs 🙄.Version: 15.11


Like app BUTI actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much..Version: 15.06

Not happyVery 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..Version: 16.38.2

MehIronically, not the best video player app. Does a better job with everything else except watching videos. Want to leave a comment? Easy enough. Check notifications? Yep, it’s fine. Want to watch a video? Oh no, you’re stuck in landscape mode and can’t get out. Ok, let’s turn phone right side up. Nope, you did that too fast so you gotta do it again because the app can’t tell if you’re in landscape or portrait mode..Version: 15.41.2

False Wi-Fi connection issues, random error MessagesThis app has been broken for many versions now. Using an iPhone Exar and the most recent iOS this app has random alert messages that cannot be cleared when using the voice-over screen reader. This results in me having to close the app down and re-launch it completely losing my place on any video I was watching. I have reported this many times and nothing has been done. Also this app tells me that I am not connected to my Wi-Fi and it decides that it doesn’t want to play any videos or find recommended videos in auto play. Even though I have enough Wi-Fi to watch Netflix or stream music from Apple Music… I live in a good signal area so why can’t it use my Forgy anyway? All my settings are fine the app itself is the problem. I have also reported this many times and nothing has been done.Version: 14.10

GreedyBlatant 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..Version: 14.15

Subscriber BugSo 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..Version: 17.05.2

ProblemEdit: 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.Version: 12.38

A new low and more cheap tricks with adsEver wonder why Google tries to be “funny” with their update descriptions? It’s better than admitting to all the cheap and nasty things they stick into every update. Removing the swipe to dismiss option is a new low. Prior to the latest update, you could dismiss a video (or annoying ad) by swiping to minimise, then swiping to dismiss. The swipe to dismiss option has since been replaced with a small X button. As usual, the button is harder to select, deliberately slow to respond, and often ignores your request all together. This gives Google those precocious extra seconds of ad time..Version: 14.43

YouTube keeps deleting views!!Bring the views back from BTS’s ON.Version: 15.08

PlsOld YouTube better.Version: 14.38

Why change the quality controls?I live in a house with not a lot of internet allowance and now With the new update I am unable to control how much data is used? The previous update was fine and allowed me to selected the quality (360p, 720p ect.) and now it just has “data saver” (which multiple times has been on the highest settings of 1080p60fps ? What a waste of time to add this function.Version: 16.17.4

Wish I could rate this 0 starsTerrible 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.Version: 16.46.5

Bugging out recentlyDon’t know why but in the past two weeks it’s been glitching a lot, it plays miniscreen but it doesn’t minimise the actual video so you’ve got the top left portion of the video and nothing else. And then when you tap on it, the normal viewing screen bugs out and leaves a black bar on the right side of your screen and then shows the video at the size it was meant to be on when played on the miniscreen. Another problem it when I leave a video to search from more my recommendations screen is filled with a single video stretched across my screen and then just more. Please fix this ASAP!.Version: 15.02

WHY IS IT 17 AND OVER?!I AM RAGING!! Why has it now become 17 and over... I hope you realise your now going to lose users of this app and you tubers are not going to be happy once they see there views down and subscribers they have lost! I really hope you change it back ASAP because if not ALOT of people are NOT going to be happy!! All I want to do I access the app to listen to music and watch videos that’s all!! But no I can’t even do that!! Surely if you were going to age restrict it because of the videos you should do what you’ve been doing for the last I don’t know how long and restrict the inappropriate videos etc... we get it, we understand it’s a hard time at the moment but your now cutting off people’s education, relaxation and other reasons people use the app... SO ALL IM GOING TO NOW SAY IS A BIG SARCASTIC WELL DONE YOU STUCK UP PEOPLE WHO DECIDED IT WAS ALRIGHT TO AGE RESTRICT THE APP!!.Version: 15.20

Dislike featureThe 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..Version: 16.45.4

New updateI just updated my app and so when you make the video smaller when you swipe it down to the bottom right so you can explore other videos it is still big enough for you to be able to see and watch the video but now with this new update it goes to the bottom left and it really small and shows the title and it is very ugly. This is going to be a major issue and I think everyone including me would love for it to be changed back to the original way it was before this update..Version: 12.47.16

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? Fix asap!.Version: 12.35

Comment section updateThe 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..Version: 15.17

BruhAll of a sudden the app tells me to buy it from the AppStore 🤨.Version: 15.20

Please don’t delete views thanksHey maybe don’t delete almost 100 million views next time thanks..Version: 15.08

It’s alrightThe app is ok, but I’m continually frustrated by recommendations that I have already watched. What happened to the swipe to remove? I now have to look for the x to place my finger... come on, reinstate the gestures, put the controls at the bottom of the screen please. The amount of adverts during videos is getting excessive, but the cost of subscription is way too high. It has been glitchy for me in the last few weeks too. It’s not my internet as my desktop viewing is ok..Version: 15.45.2

In need of updateGood but big issues. When watching videos in full screen, almost every 10 seconds the pause, rewind, fast forward etc signs pop up as if you have touched the screen, making videos pretty much unwatchable as this takes up the whole screen and is a huge distraction. This happens on both iPhone and iPad and happens even if the device is sitting on a table, taking away any possibility that I was accidentally touching the screen without knowing. Also the option to play music/videos in the background should be available to all, I get that it’s possible with the paid version but that feels like a bit of a slap in the face when it use to be available to all. By all means remove adds in the paid version but stopping certain features that do literally nothing to affect your income and only serve as annoying your costumers into buying the paid version seems unfair, it’s out of principle that I am refusing to get the paid version because of this. Fix these 2 issues and this app honestly becomes the best on the App Store, but until then it is nowhere near..Version: 13.49

I hate the adsSeriously 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!.Version: 16.36.4

Random skips.Since the latest update, every time I watch a video, it randomly skips to the next video (whichever one is first in the list below the vid) as of I hit the "fast forward" button. This is incredibly annoying as I will have to go back to the video I was on, have to get back to my place as it goes back to the beginning, only to have it skip again after 5 seconds..Version: 12.47

My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!!I have a playlist for music that has over 1000 videos in it and it won’t update anymore in the library section, when I press library and scroll down after adding a new song to my playlist I don’t see it, and if I make a new playlist sometimes I won’t see it there either. I thought of making a new playlist but I don’t know how I’ll make a new playlist and transfer 1000+ videos onto it manually. I now normally have to go to my channel profile, click the playlists tab, sort by newly added to and then *maybe* I’ll get to see my music playlist but sometimes it just flat out tells me “you have no crated playlist” when I know for a fact I do, so I have to redo the whole process over again multiple times just to see my playlist because it won’t show up in the library playlists, please fix this. Also gotta add on yet again that I’ve been seeing a lot of homophobic and racist videos that aren’t removed, you can’t even report videos unless you watch them first and you can’t report channels either because the button doesn’t even work when you go to submit the report, and from what I saw on twitter it seems like you’re just trying to defend low life’s at this point, get it together..Version: 16.45.4

Removing video from screen is unintuitiveSuch a massive company and they still can’t get this video-in-the corner thing right. Why do you have to slide the main screen to the bottom right in order to make a small screen? That’s been changed now to a little down ‘chit’ rather than an arrow pointing to where the screen is actually going to end up. But that’s besides the point. To remove the video altogether, you have to shrink it, then slide it off to the right. It’s just too cryptic and hidden. It’s like they thought the ‘lets-drag-the-screen-to-the-bottom-right-because-its-a-neat-effect’ had to be put in just because they liked it and not because they thought about being intuitive. So seriously, I’ve had to live with sliding screens to shrink and then swiping it off the screen to remove it for too long. To the point that we’ve gotten used to the absurdity, but are reminded of it every time we need to explain it to a new user..Version: 13.41

So badThe 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.Version: 16.20.5

Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPadsI 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….Version: 17.08.2

App with annoying bugsThe app doesn’t first recognise devices in the same wifi like chromecasts unless you open and connect another app first. Also the rotation freezes on landscape position when you are actually using in portrait position. The annoying ads crashes so it doesn’t finish and you can’t either watch what you really want to because “your video will play after the ad”, you have to close the app and open it again. Asking for a review when you are using the app is also annoying..Version: 14.18

Strange status Bar glitchHi there… This app is great… But there is one problem… there is a strange status bar bug… lets say you are watching a video… And you want to check the time The time doesn't change… If you check the status bar while watching a video for example… Let's say I play a video that is 15 minutes long… At 9:31 AM and when that video is finished… It's already 9:47 AM unless… You exit out the video… The time still says 9:31 AM it'll be 5 o'clock in the afternoon and the status bar would still say 9:31 AM it's like… The clock got stuck The time doesn't change… Unless you restart the app… Or exit out the video also… Nothing in the status bar changes including the battery level The only way to see the correct time and all of the other information displayed you have to exit out the video And… For the iPad version if you select add to bye accident there is no cancel button it's been like that for three years please fix those issues… There really annoying.Version: 13.11

Please stop ruining the appWhy did you change how the video goes into a box on the corner, the previous way when it slid into a small box from the top left to the bottom right was great and now it’s ugly and annoying. Why can’t I slide it to the right to get rid of the video when it’s small, that feature had nothing wrong with it and now with the new way it goes into a box it’s not only ugly but less user friendly. Another complaint I have with the newest update that I’ve found is when I go to add a video to a playlist it automatically adds it to my most recent playlist, I don’t want that, if I wanted it in that playlist then I’d add it, why did you make this worse along with everything else, the update says “improvements” but all I’ve found are annoying downgrades. Please just stop making it worse and make things how they were..Version: 13.28

New comments system horribleMoving comments to a tab under the description is atrocious, the window that opens up gets shut down every time an ad comes on and you can’t read the comments/lose your place. Plus, it looks ugly as all heck..Version: 15.17

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..Version: 14.35

These fix these problemsNumber one I’m listening to music and there’s a holding guard column playlist why did you scatter each playlist all over the place leave it in one column make a scattering it is hard to fine just leave it in one column where is easy to go to problem number two what’s with the new quality settings and high-quality mid quality why can’t we just pick a specific settings you need to fix this setting right now because we want to specific said we don’t want to automatically go to 480 P to 1080 P we wanna pick on the settings for like 720 p 360 p I had 360 P we want to optimize our own settings for resolutions and you’re taking that away from us Number three ads they’re seeing multiple times and we can’t get rid of them it’s really annoying TheAds but you can’t skip is basically the same at Ads playing over and over again and it at a point it gets annoying for example the Verizon ads that really gets annoying you need to stop that.Version: 16.16.3

YouTubeYouTube 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.Version: 15.08

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....Version: 15.02

Censorship is annoying.I am no right wing neocon or Trump supporting populist by any stretch, but I certainly do get annoyed with all the censorship that seems to skew one way on this platform. Your censorship is applied terribly inconsistently - one video will be taken down while ten others running far more afoul of your rules will remain. I’ve begun to look at other platforms (like Odysee) even though, for familiarity’s sake, I’d prefer to just stick with this one. That said, your platform still contains more videos on a wider range of topics than your competitors do, but that won’t last if you keep this up. Protools used to be my DAW (digital audio workstation) of choice, but they allowed themselves to fall behind depending on their status as the “industry standard” to keep them relevant. The only reason people still use it is because that’s what a lot of pros started out on and are used to, but their status as the music industry’s standard is waning. I am actively annoyed that anybody still gives that DAW the time of day anymore..Version: 16.46.5

Update issueThere is a pop-up window that i have to update the app or close it. And I can't update it, becouse I have an older phone with iOS 10, so I can't use this app. I gave it 1 star, becouse if I click fast enough on a video app work perfectly, so you just did it to force people to update it, It's really frustraiting. I like my old phone, I don't want new one, I don't want new features in the app, if It's working perfectly, why you force me to update it? It's make no sense, even if there will be issues in the future, I don't care, I just want to wach videos and you don't let me, just becouse you can. So 1 star very deserved. I know you don't care about 1 user, but there a lot of people who can't afford new phone, you just don't care about poor people from other countries than USA or western europe. You proof that you no longer a company who cares, you become a big corporation who cares only if people buy new things..Version: 13.10


Comments not postingA whole year now this ridiculous issue has been happening, I have even tried it on two different IPads and models, every few videos I comment on, it just freezes and the little icon spins, I have to keep uninstalling the app just to be able to comment and watch things again, twice a day it is happening -_-. Not good guys, not good..Version: 15.49.4

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..Version: 17.04.3

Update worse than the last version, which itself had room for improvementProblems with the update first: I don't like the way you moved the "save video" button to where the button to cast to the TV used to be, meaning I keep hitting the wrong button - minor complaint but really annoying. I also don't like what you've done with the subscriptions icons either: you used to be to tap on a channel's icon and go straight to said channel, now you need to tap on the icon and then go to "view channel"... Why??? Again a minor thing but still annoying and an unnecessary backwards step. Problems remaining from the previous version that the you should've fixed: why I can't I queue videos when I'm watching/listening to stuff on my phone in the same way I can when I'm watching via my SkyQ or Xbox? Why can't I queue stuff to listen to via Bluetooth through my car stereo? Surely it's not beyond the wit of man to add such a feature. Also if I'm listening to an independent news commentator, the app - or maybe the website itself, I don't know - will for some reason not just give me their next video but will instead give me some legacy media video, sometimes not even related to the subject of the previous video. Why? If I want to watch Fox News or whatever I'll select that. Please stop shoving stuff down my throat that I don't want..Version: 14.50

Not a fan of auto play while scrollingI’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..Version: 16.46.5

GoodIt functions as it should but the whole money grubbing scene, advertisement-WITHIN-advertisement, is getting well out of hand. Kudos for timing the skip button in perfect sync with the video so you have no choice but to watch the second ad with no provided skip button some lasting between 00:30 seconds to 2:00 minutes. Alas not the point, there is a health hazard warning I would very much like to point out... ASMR + Advertisement, personally and I am sure many people would agree, any ASMRtist that have ads within their videos should at least pre-warn listeners as I have damaged my hearing having my volume all the way up and ‘auto-play’ accidentally being left on and a very loud, booming advertisement plays... sometimes it’s at the end of the very same bloody video. 🙄🙄🙄 Aside from that particular HAZARD... yeah no it’s good....Version: 14.26

ARMYYouTube 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.Version: 15.08

Video doesn't start where I left offI used to be able to watch a video from my history from the point where I left off regardless if I've closed the app altogether or just minimised it by pressing the home button. Since the last couple of updates I'm only able to view videos from where I left off if I didn't close the app. Of I closed it videos would start from the beginning which is very annoying. Would be great to bring that feature back because otherwise the app is really good. Since an earlier update I'm also not able to write a comment on the app, either it struggles bringing up the keyboard switch between SwiftKey and built in iPhone keyboard but sometimes it just hangs. What is more annoying that it also struggles to hide or discard comments when I'm unable to get the keyboard working. Hope this could be improved as I'm using the app daily..Version: 13.30

Dislike button no longer worksWhere are the dislikes? i was trying to watch a movie review and it was horrible. i could not tell because i can’t see the dislikes.Version: 16.46.5

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!.Version: 15.43.4

Being back 10million views for boy with luv by BTS ft HalseyNormally I would give this app at least a 4, but ever since this new music video by BtS came out, we have been working our butts off to get them to 100m. Why do you do? You go and freeze the views every 3 hours or so and delete 10m of those views. Lots of people haven’t slept or eaten just to make them proud and you have the audacity to delete the hard earned views? Stop being so biased with other groups! The only music videos you have been doing this to is bts. The same happened with fake love and idol and we cannot take it much longer! Give us our views back, we worked very hard for this and it is not fair that we are being treated this way. These boys deserve the world for what they have done and in my opinion what you did is rude and disrespectful. Thank you for your time and I hope you do something about this problem..Version: 14.12.7

What happened?I regret updating to this new UI. Too many bugs. Now, posting a comment takes forever. When I like a comment, it unlikes by itself. When I edit my comment, it unedits itself. When I save a video into a playlist, it unsaves itself. I have to close and reopen the app only to know if the things that I liked, ‘posted’, ‘edited’, ‘saved’ worked. When I press “discard”, it won’t discard the comment. Too much unskippable ads. It’s not like I’m going to care/remember them more when I do your polls. Only upside is that I can click on replies without having to watch the videos again. Also, what’s the new unfilled/uncoloured UI icons? All I can say is, some people have poor eyesight and without the icons filled in, it’s going to be hard to see..Version: 15.49.4

RIP YouTubeSadly 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..Version: 14.12.7

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?.Version: 13.18

Horrible bugs for content creators and chanelsYoutube 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..Version: 15.08

Good app but advertisement overloadI 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..Version: 15.37.4

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..Version: 13.33

Very good but on huge problemWhen I’m watching a video and I I press the button to make the screen smaller there’s a button right next to it which can connect the video to the TV. This is a huge issue because sometimes I accidentally press it and it connects to the telly my parents or grandparents are watching if I don’t press the done button quick enough!! When I was at my grandparents before I was upstairs watching videos and they were downstairs watching telly. I pressed the button on accident because it’s too close to the zoom out button and 2 minutes later I could hear them unplugging the telly from the wall because they thought it was broken. Then I heard my grandma say there gonna get a new telly cause there’s is broke. I only figured out about 10 minutes later it was because I kept accidentally pressing that dang button. Please just move the button so it’s not near the zoom out button at all it would make everything easier.Version: 12.44

About the update and how it changed my reviewIf the new update wouldn’t of happened I would’ve given the app five stars however since the update has been released I don’t really like how the layout of the videos are maybe it’s just because I’m used to it and how it looked before if you don’t know what I’m talking about its about how the New update The new update makes It’s so you have to scroll down instead of just tapping on a video I don’t like it because Once you found a video that you like you can’t go back to the videos that you’ve seen before and instead you just Have to scroll all the way back up to the top I really don’t like this update please remove it please it’s really annoying maybe I’ll get used to it but for now please please remove it..Version: 15.31.3

Pause screen keeps popping upEvery 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.Version: 13.38

Stagnant monetized developmentI have been a premium subscriber for a while now, so as new capabilities become available, I can understand the desire to monetize to create a variation between premium and non subscribing. The thing is that exists with ads and services such as TV. The biggest reason I got premium is I didn’t want to see ads for things I didn’t care about. That is the same reason I didn’t get TV, I don’t care about it. The desire to limit things such as PIP as to not lose the differences between paid and non is becoming ridiculous. Now, in the struggle to control background playing on iOS, google has safari crash if it is a non paying account trying to use PIP on mobile safari. Personally, that is kind of rude, and Apple should fix it in a patch because safari force crashing is in my opinion a iOS bug. No website should have that much control over your browser and OS. Apple? My gripe is that the app doesn’t have the functionality. Seriously? I’m already paying for it. Why do I have to use safari as a paid subscriber? It is this type of account greed that ruins companies..Version: 15.38.2

Dislike buttonI’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..Version: 15.49.4

Too much ads / trop de publicités sur la version mobileSince the last update I get too many ads during video streaming this is crazy / trop de publicités sur la version mobile.Version: 12.40

Phone goes on sleeping mode while watching a video on YouTubeSince I installed this update my phone goes on sleeping mode even while i'am watching a video on YouTube. Which is really 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..Version: 12.35

BugTakes too long to play videos on apple tv, often disconnects after an advert, then you reconnect and start again, then the advert again, annoying. Also the channel bar is messed up, now, showing blank subscriptions or ones with no videos, also i cannot delete these once once the uploader has deleted their account or video’s leaving messes for me to look at permantely. You tube, is this the start of your decline, do something, user experience is rubbish..Version: 13.36

Worst app EVERYou guys deleted VEIWS FROM bts’s music video “on” who TF does that worst app EVER I’m DISGUSTED 🤬🤢.Version: 15.08

Can do betterThe ads on this app is ridiculous. It was okay before but now, it plays upto three ads in a row, it somehow puts the assistive touch on iPhones in front of the ‘skip ads’ button sometimes, it plays an ad after two or there songs EVERYTIME and doesn’t ‘autoplay’ even though the option is ticked 👎🏽 I know there is a premium app but come on!!.Version: 15.31.3

Bring back the old comments sectionThis 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.Version: 15.15

Don’t update.I just updated to the latest version after getting fed up with having to ignore the constant prompts to update. Now, certain searches bring up ‘Other searches related to......’ without actually bringing up results for your search. So now you can just end up in a never ending loop of related searches without actually getting what you’re looking for. For example just yesterday I searched for a soundtrack, and played the playlist fine. Today I can’t find that playlist because of this update. Worst ‘improvement’ ever..Version: 13.25

The new update on automatically quality optionsNow the quality is always at high settings and I have to change it to the lowest quality every time afterwards I watch a video, before you can just choose your quality and it will keep itself for the next video and when I’m driving I usually listen too music and set the quality to lowest so I can saved up data but now I can’t even listened music without have to go back to quality options which is dangerous when I’m driving and have to clicked the option every time a new music I listen with out it being a high HD 720p60 and I did go to the options and choose the data saver but it will only saved 360p and not 144p or minimum 240p so I can save up data..Version: 16.16.3

Latest updateI have no clue who’s idea this was but the new update changed the location of the comment section and it is the most useless and inconvenient design choice the YouTube app has made yet. I NEVER write app review but if you guys could kindly change it back that would be great. I get that it’s supposed to clean up and streamline the interface but it’s actually takes away from the user interaction aspect that I love about YouTube not to mention that if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, completely unnecessary update. Atleast make this one optional.Version: 15.19

Is it getting worse?Short answer to that is yes, it is getting worse and especially if you stay a free user. I understand that YT and Google live from advertising and selling users data and that's fine. It's been like since forever and people understood - but what Google and YT are doing now is criminal with ads in before, after, in the middle, popping and floating in between, prioritising paid video over relevant... How does it relate to this app? It's worse than browser edition as the pop up ads block most of the screen and before. The video doesn't predownload (buffer) as before unless you pay to download. I'm a premium user and I'm considering leaving YT for good and give a chance to other services that are upcoming and are being what YT once was - place dedicated to videos more than ads..Version: 13.33

YOU TUBE MUST REMAIN IMPARTIAL FOR ALLPlease remain impartial and non-partisan. Let the people have their voice from both sides. The truth will set us all free. Some videos may be false and debatable and some might be made for the purpose of telling or showing the truth. Let the viewers have their own free will to chose what to believe in or not. As human beings maybe this is the way that we evolve to be better species where in everyone can share thoughts and beliefs to everyone and let the world tell their opinions about it. The world has the power now has the power to reveal the facts and false narratives in the same platform and let the world judge or COMMENT ABOUT it. The makers of the videos will also realize that if their VIDEO UPLOAD is not being appreciated/approved/supported by the rest of the world or by the whole world. Just let people upload and let the rest of the world react to the videos. In this way we as humans have an OPEN DIALOGUE and OPEN DISCUSSION. Whether good or bad the human race will be evolving through this way..Version: 15.49.4

Moved comments updateThe change to have the comment section above the recommended videos was unnecessary and is just confusing and not warranted. It’s rare I want to look the comments before other videos making this a generally bad change to layout. On top of that the choice to make the recommended video icons larger is also a poor one. It now not only takes longer to go through the videos, but it’s harder to tell what the video is based off of the thumbnail taking up most of the screen, resulting in more difficult navigation as well as a eye sore. This change to layout wasn’t asked for and doesn’t improve the app in any way. Instead of changing the layout when it isn’t required, why not try and ensure that users can view the videos their subscribed channels and remove the surplus amount of ads that now make up most of the site..Version: 15.17

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..Version: 12.38

Needs problem addressingThe app is solid and very good. Works well with safari and switching to app automatically to view videos but when watching a playlist especially in low power mode the app sometimes locks up and freezes in between videos. The problem occurs regularly on my iPhone 6s Plus. I do not believe this to be a device issue as this is the only app the problem occurs on and when I view playlists on the safari website version the problem does not occur. Pros. Good layout, works well with safari app switching, fast video loading and easy to use. Cons. Playlist bug which very rarely occurs when viewing the same video multiple times, can lock up device for several seconds requiring a screen lock to sort out and screen rotation sometimes takes several attempts to register it has rotated..Version: 13.05

Defective offlineIt was good when it was having setting to turn on/off online in the sense of saving internet data but now even if we're playing offline playlist it's start loading similar video which end up consuming data anyway. And when phone disconnect with WiFi playlist stop playing only current video plays and next one doesn't until we close app and reopen..Version: 13.39.11

Too many adsTo 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.Version: 15.49.4

More stars if less buggy...The app is great overall but there are too many bugs in your app. The app crashes from time to time and occasionally resprings my device. But most annoyingly, I can go into new tabs such as settings, library, etc... And when I tap on a video, whether signed into a Gmail account or not, the app freezes and never resumes. This makes the application completely unusable even scrolling, therefore I have to close the app and is broken forever until fixed. This takes up storage and I don't use it apart from getting notifications and is really annoying that I can't view any videos despite this being YouTube's purpose. So please can you fix this soon!.Version: 13.10

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..Version: 14.05

A lot of glitchesWhenever 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..Version: 12.47.16

Use to be goodAdding 2 unskipable adds 3-4 times per vid and deleting random videos.Version: 14.32

Comment section is screwyPlease, I am begging you, please put the comments back where they were, open at the bottom and not above the related videos in their own separate tab with one random comment showing. The description, too. Both of those things being in their own tab is annoying. The X button looking the same and having a different function now - changing to closing the whole comment section instead of a reply thread - makes no sense. At the very least, having the comment closing button on the right when most people are right handed and you're more likely to want to close replies instead of the whole entire comment window (whyy) is weird. I used to watch YT constantly while working/doing hobbies and I love reading comments and used to watch some videos multiple times while reading through them but I hate it and don't touch the app at all now unless I'm on my PC. I don't even need YT Red anymore I use it so little. I do miss watching stuff, though. I've always dreaded updating YT because every once in a while the comment section changes to this awful format for a bit for some reason. Really, any other issue I'd have with the app is overshadowed by this. (This was wasn't a wall of text but submitting it killed my formatting, sorry.).Version: 17.07.2
