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

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

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

Exceptionally poor UXI cannot change notification settings for my subscriptions because I’ve disabled notifications on my phone. This is even though I have them enabled on other devices. In other words, I’m being forced to enable push notifications to change my settings. The sharing function uses a bespoke UI instead of the one provided by iOS, so I cannot simply select a person I’ve recently contacted like I can in most other apps. There also isn’t a setting to change to dark mode automatically according to the system settings. Instead, I can only choose a dark mode or a light mode permanently. The offline functionality is patchy. When on a poor connection, it insists on trying to use the internet rather than the downloaded version. It’s also not possible to copy and paste things like titles and descriptions as it is on the website. The shorts UX is not consistent with everything else. I cannot rewind if I miss something. Instead, I’m forced to rewatch the whole video. Everything, absolutely everything, about this app is suboptimal..Version: 17.49.6

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

Why I rate you so lowToo much biased censorship, lying to the World through crafted omissions. Hypocritically banning truths and promoting twisted embellishments and outright lies, while fostering Actual hateful ideologies, at the same time as silencing oppositional views by deleting channels and and throttling users accounts. Manipulating the likes to dislikes ratios as a tool to fool the Sheeple. Not quite as bad as CNN, however, certainly using the same framework of management and manipulations though 👎 I’ve seen many a ‘TELEGRAM’ that clearly show a media ‘Rumble’ happening here and now, with a new King of the Lions taking over by simply exposing the ‘Truth’ , ……… 👍 + 👍.Version: 16.42.3


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

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

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

It gets annoying sometimesHello 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.Version: 17.28.2

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

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

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..Version: 17.19.2

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

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

Very annoying video time teleporting bugGetting 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)..Version: 17.41.2

Show dislikesThe 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.Version: 17.03.3

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

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


No thanks YT Google.I have asked google so many times to remove offensive and inappropriate advertising that is also grossly misleading of my feed.. They have done absolutely nothing regarding this. I do not enjoy what was once a great platform as now all it does is allow awful advertising and try and get me to pay for a subscription every few hours. $$$$$ is all it’s about. I wish other companies would compete and get their own platforms up so that REAL creative content can flourish..Version: 17.43.1

If the UI ain’t broke, please don’t fix it!As someone who has used the iPad app for years now, I will be using the app one day just fine, and then suddenly there will be an app update that has totally unnecessary changes to the user interface when I had been so comfortable with how it was before. The latest update however takes unnecessary changes to the UI to a whole different level to the point where the app is now just harder to use. In no way at all is the update to the arrangement of the buttons below the videos (i.e. the title, views, description button, like/dislike buttons and channel buttons) helpful. You end up going back and forth clicking the wrong thing when you only want to see the description! Please put it back to how it was before; if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!.Version: 16.43.2

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

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

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

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

COVID censorshipYour censorship of videos on the discussion of COVID and related matters are laughable: Censoring video content as “as against your community guidelines” when the same content is published elsewhere in Peer reviewed Medical Papers and reports, main stream media content and Releases by Government organisations. It is clearly just targeting individuals. In one case a Doctor, working in a Hospital, daily treating COVID Patients, peer accepted, had his video content “reviewed” by one of your staff. He was told to “ not do it again and apologise “. I guess your staff me member was an 80 year old Teaching Professor from a well know Medical School? Right? He would have the back ground knowledge? Right?.Version: 16.44.4

FixHow about next update it fixes the playback so the pause doesn’t show up every 10 seconds.Version: 13.39.11

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

UI was better before and now as of 2022 the ads literally make things nearly unwatchableThe 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: 17.33.2

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

Most broken app on my phoneGoogle 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..Version: 17.23.6

I thought Google was supposed to be a tech companyIsn’t Google one of the wealthiest tech companies around, complete with a massive army of the best coders in the world? Then why are they so incapable of making an elegant app? Or heck, why can’t they even make a DECENT app all these years later? Trying to post comments is one of the most frustrating experiences I’ve ever had on iOS. Something about the way they’ve implemented the text box makes the text shift around with to try to place the cursor, not to mention the fact that simply PLACING the cursor is a giant headache that takes multiple taps to work (if it does at all). Similarly, selecting text and dragging the selection is flawed, sometimes working across multiple rows, sometimes not. And can we talk about how YouTube’s “5-second” skip via double-tap is not actually a 5-second skip? Instead, it’s skips you to some predetermined location that is WITHIN 5 seconds of your current spot but could be anywhere within that range. It basically functions like tab locations in a word processor: it moves you to wherever the next tab is, whether it’s 1 space away or 5..Version: 17.35.3

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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..Version: 17.33.2

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

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

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

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

Only three stars, please fixI 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.Version: 17.25.1

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

Lack of Support for Tablets(Disclaimer: This review is about the app and it’s functionality) This app has been consistently getting worse as time goes by. They keep making changes to the app when there’s completely nothing wrong in the first place. An example being the giant ‘+’ in the middle of the bottom bar that no one uses. Another example is selecting the video quality going from selecting actual resolutions and being changed to ‘high’ and ‘low’. I’ve been getting more problems and issues in the recent few weeks and updates to the app hasn’t solved them. Examples are clicking on a video in the home page and the app not showing. Another example is using the search bar and videos not loading after the search. I will update my review if these problems get fixed however I won’t change my opinion about the app changing for no good reason..Version: 16.33.3

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

Bloated and unfriendlyThis used to be much more user-friendly and accessible. Now every video is locked behind unskippable ads (and sometimes interrupted by them as well) which continue to get longer with every update. The algorithm constantly feeds you what’s popular instead of what you’re interested in, to the extent that you can pinpoint comments from people who’ve been recommended a video on the same day as you. Even if you’re subscribed to a channel, you might not see their videos anywhere in your feed unless you subject yourself to push notifications. They do almost nothing to moderate their worst users, allowing all sorts of harmful content and comments while wilfully imposing random strikes and shadow bans on users who’ve done nothing wrong (generally because they’re not creating traditional content that generates revenue for Google). And they trick you into feeding advertisers more insights into your behaviour through “quick surveys” that pinpoint your buying habits and make it even easier for them to disrupt your experience on the platform. If there was another viable platform for video content, that’s where I’d be. Google is one of the least morally sound companies on the planet right now..Version: 16.39.6

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

If you want to use two factor authentication make sure it’s functionalI constantly have to log out and re-login as I have a premium account but it constantly starts playing ads again. Scammers!!! then I have to deal with a non-functional two factor authentication - and since it never works I have to use the long route which takes a good five minutes to login again. You think being such a huge company and part of Google that you wouldn’t be so retarded..Version: 17.44.4

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

Worst video app on the marketIf you switch to another app or your phone goes to sleep the app “forgets” both the video you were watching and the position you were at - something that’s a solved problem in literally every other video app out there. Same goes for when you tap another video accidentally. These are things that are solved problems in literally every other video app out there. You then have to sit through multiple ads to get back to where you were - many of which feature “work-from-home” scams and dubious health claims - both of which are illegal in my country..Version: 17.22.3

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

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

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

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

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

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

Update ConcernsI 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..Version: 17.39.5

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

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

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

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

Way too glitchy recentlyThis app has been getting glitchier and glitchier recently, and it really ruins the experience. 1) The homepage stops loading new videos pretty quickly if you scroll down, so it's hard to just scroll to find new videos 2) Refreshing the homepage makes any visible videos bug out, with the thumbnail remaining but unclickable. This also leads to posts/videos fusing together and looking very weird 3) The comments section bugs out in dark mode, turning everything white (making it unreadable in dark mode since the text remains white on a glitched white background) 4) Clicking read more on a comment sometimes doesn't work, and when it does it fuses the comments like above 5) Maybe not a bug but theres no option for a notification sound, which would be nice.Version: 16.34.7

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

Ads, Ads, Ads and more Ads 👎👎👎👎👎Try listening to your fav music album, no chance ! If your using an iPhone that is. On my Mac I have Adblock so no problem…. But on my phone YT is a terrible experience because of intrusive ads literally every few mins. It’s beyond a joke. I put a tomorrow land music concert video on and you watch an Ad at the start, 5-15 seconds depending on your luck, then an ad as quick as 1 minute 6 seconds later. Then one 6 minutes or so after that. Some videos are worse than others and this continues…. Others have less. What’s crazy now is they must have the algorithm pick out when the beats abut to drop, and instead of the beat dropping, an ad drops instead, completely ruining the song/track but even worse it kills your flow, your singing is exposed, the dancing stops and if it’s playing through the home sound system then the volume is increased and your left running to the Stereo to turn it down…. This is clearly designed to frustrate you and push you into paying and buying YT premium where, As they advertise, it’s ad free… ! It’s a Complete scam ! Disrupting your life, then offering you a way of making the disruption stop with a monetary payment ! By all means have an ad at the start and end, maybe even in the middle…. But every so many minutes and when the beat is about to drop is an absolute joke… Sad, lame trick to prize money out of peoples pockets to pay to not have to endure them… Bad business ethics !.Version: 17.28.2

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

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

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

BrokenThe 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!!!!.Version: 17.17.4

Copyright claim needs to be free just by giving credit to the owner of the music and the songSo 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.Version: 17.33.2

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

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

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

If you tube was bad, it would most probably be in an improvementToo 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.Version: 17.40.5

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

Been years and they still can’t fix the bugsEvery 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..Version: 17.34.3

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

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

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

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

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

PlsOld YouTube better.Version: 14.38

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

Comment section now covers recommended videos.Not sure about anyone else but now I have to press view all to see comments which results in the comment box covering the recommended videos. This new comment box is smaller and harder to read and if I want to see what videos are recommended I have to minimise the comment box which, results in me being sent back to the top of the comments if I press view all again, meaning I’ve lost track of the comments I was reading. It’s almost like the people updating this don’t even use the app and just randomly change settings in order to claim that they’re “increasing viewer interaction” instead of annoying people with how tedious they are making it to use this app..Version: 16.46.5

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

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

Search stopped workingYouTube’s search bar now just doesn’t work, the home page is just fine and I can reload it without trouble, but when I go into the search bar nothing seems to work. Anything I try and search will just lead to a blank screen with a loading circle, I have tried waiting until it works but nothing happens. Please fix this I just want to watch videos other than my homepage.Version: 16.33.3

Bring Back DownvotesPlease 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..Version: 17.18.4

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

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

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

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

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

Bugs & Useless interface changesThis latest update has made using the app almost unbearable. I can’t comment on anything without my comments getting deleted for no reason, and the constant interface changes are unneeded - not to mention the frequency of these updates to the UI do not allow for anyone to actually get used to them. Also as many have already said, I’m sick and tired of the hundreds of ads you’ve decided to bombard every video with. Not everybody has the disposable income to waste money on your premium services and a decent, comfortable user experience shouldn’t be locked behind a paywall. One ad is bearable, but dozens of them, especially right in the middle of a video is ridiculous and quite frankly unacceptable. So please, focus on fixing the actual problems within your site before worrying about the aesthetics..Version: 17.28.2

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

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

Yeah nahThe app, mechanically and functionally, is fine. Works as needed and I have had no issues. The issues I have are as follows: How YT treats smaller content creators who craft their works with time and care, as opposed to trash who do hastily created junk on a daily basis, often rehashing the content of other creators. How YT abuses its monetisation policies to punish, discriminate, diminish or retaliate against creators. YT is, arguably, responsible for the rise and proliferation of Patreon. How YT allows so many (so very many(like, a Trumpian amount)) videos that promote hatred, intolerance, bigotry, racist ideology, sexism, transphobic or just downright mean and spiteful videos. The curation process, which is something I would have assumed was important to YT, is non existent. But, you know, the trending videos always feature pop music. That’s good, right?.Version: 17.25.1

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

CensorshipNot happy that allot of people I enjoy watching have to be so carful about what they say to avoid banning so I have to follow them on Rumble. Would prefer if the algorithm wouldn’t give me so much political stuff even tho I am political it’s good to have a mix and something new I may not think to look for . I do think premium is also a bit pricy but obviously it’s not all bad which is why I still have it but if they wanna last free speech must prevail.Version: 17.45.1

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

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?.Version: 17.22.3

DislikeGive us back the dislike button you fools.Version: 16.46.5

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

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

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..Version: 17.30.3

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 th 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. 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..Version: 17.38.10

Please remove this videoI would really like it if you removed this planet song video by a channel called Hopscotch. Because It's really cringe and whenever I see it, It brings back memories of when I was interested in planets. And for some reason I feel embarrassed whenever I see it. Please Please Please remove that video. And in the video there is a stupid dirty joke about Uranus smelling like rotten eggs. And you don't want kids watching videos about rotten eggs, don’t you? That’s why you should remove that video..Version: 17.49.6

480p in ‘Higher Picture Quality Mode’As the title suggests, the ‘Higher Picture Quality Mode’ does absolutely nothing for quality. This is especially annoying when the service makes sure to give you ads in the highest quality possible only to leave the actual content you’re there for virtually unwatchable. Also a number of meaningless changes have just left the site confusing or harder to move. The comment section has been made less accessible and visible, almost like the site wants feedback and opinions to be harder to come by, along similar lines as the removal of the visibility of the dislike ratio. Also playlists are now much harder to add to on the mobile app and the site is generally more difficult to navigate than when I first got the app years ago..Version: 17.06.3

Please fix1. When you scroll the list of comments and then click on some comment details and the go back, the list refreshes and need to scroll from the very top again. Not sure how your QA team tested this. Please fix it 2. Sometimes the app advertisements button fully block the exit full screen button which makes it impossible to leave the full screen mode. Please fix it as well, this bug exists for quite some time already….Version: 17.10.2

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

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

A few very annoying glitchesI’m addicted to this app but there’s a lot of glitches that have gotten worse and bug me constantly. First, a lot of videos on my homepage are missing. Like, the spaces they’re supposed to be in is just straight up blank. And, when I block a channel from appearing on my recommended, they almost always come back. A lot of these channels make inappropriate things and I’d rather not have that, but I can’t get rid of it because the blocked channels keep coming back and unblocking themselves. “We won’t recommend videos from this channel to you anymore” Yeah, well I know you will because you keep unblocking them! And I can’t get rid of the covid-19 updates and “events” bar. Every time I click “not interested”, a little bar says “okay, we’ll tune your recommendations” but as soon as I refresh, they’re back! These have been going on for a long time and I think it’s about time you FIX IT..Version: 17.06.3

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

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..Version: 17.29.3

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

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

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

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
