    Always loved it but with recent update, you need to click the top right corner close button after seeing the onscreen buttons to let it go off. Earlier it was easier to just touch anywhere on the screen to let them go off. People with huge screen phone has to stretch their finger across the corner edge to do this. I'm really disappointed and disturbed with that feature. Else its the best

  • Please revert back to the original comment layout May 9, 2020

    By ElHeggunte
    For years the comment section was at a reasonable place at the bottom of each video, making it easy to scroll through them while watching. A few months ago you abruptly moved the comments into an easily missable section under the description. I hated it. It wasn’t very intuitive to use, it wasn’t functional, and it made page navigation worse. Then a few weeks ago an update restored the original comment layout and I was overjoyed! Finally I could enjoy the app again instead of feeling like I have to fight with it just to browse comments. But I guess it wasn’t meant to last. With the most recent update we’re right back to having these ridiculous segregated comments and I just can’t wrap my head around why anyone would think this is good design. Please put the comments back at the bottom of the videos or at least give us the option to toggle between layouts. And shrink the recommended feed back to its original size. Right now the video thumbnails are so big I can only see about two videos at a time. Feels like a tremendous waste of screen real estate.

  • It’s great and extremely entertaining Dec 29, 2018

    By Hello ___
    If your looking on a app to keep you entertained for hours and hours, I suggest you get this app. And if you want to be a youtuber, it’s very easy to upload videos. Also if you have about 10,000 subscribers you can interact with your fans by posting a message on a community tab. Though, if your under the age of 13, or your child is under the age of 13, Do not get this app! They’re many people who create very inappropriate videos or make sex jokes, There is some porn on it and very bloody pictures. Be careful on here. They’re is a lot of rude people on this app. Though if your child is over the age, it’s fine, the app is very entertaining and I promise you they won’t get bored. -Suggestion for this app- On the Community app, you can comment, and obviously the creator can like or reply to that comment. But, they can’t reply back to the creator. Can you please make it so we can reply back to the creator? And that other people can reply on their comments?

    I love to read about traditional and Non Traditional subjects sparked by my Upbringing and influences. In reading I don’t have time to read subjects varied from my likes dislikes and opinions, However, on You tube I can also find things that are not necessarily my opinion and either learn or retreat from said information quickly as I browse through numerous subjects that may have been a college elective or an older sibling or parent turning me on to sci fi or other varied and adventurous subjects or my passion for History and Various Forms Of Music That I experienced and reminds me of times or passions I share with friends and acquaintances that may have had similar or different experiences. I also like the fact that I can benefit from friends acquaintances experiences and knowledge that I can grow from or Not. It’s a brilliant tool and I am happy to live in the communication age as a marketeer and Entrepreneur, who can see inside and outside the box, without Judgement.

  • Filtering “criticism” I have noticed Jun 8, 2020

    By BadLiberalMonsters
    I do not like the recommendations, especially after I specifically request to not see content from a specific channel (it still floods my feed with the results). I also find that the same content from a channel that I AM subscribed to doesn’t show when I search the topic, and when it does, it shows one video by the creator I am looking for while being surrounded and drowned out by multiple videos on the same topic by other channels that I previously requested to not see content from (and am NOT subscribed to). It really reinforces the arguments that I have been hearing recently about censorship tbh. I know those censorship arguments have been going for a long time, but in all honesty, I have never had an issue until recently (past few months to a year). I am not dissatisfied to the point where I will stop using the platform (yet), I am only trying to offer an opinion/ outside view/ constructive criticism. I hope that this finds you well (to whoever reads this).

    Never had this problem until the latest update. The latest bug is the captions (cc), on the app you can manually turn off cc but when you watch a video it's on and not even with the correct language. It's annoying that you are watching a video only to have Arabic writing blocking the video, and have to turn it off every time even if you didn't turn them on in the first place.

  • The new update is awful. May 13, 2020

    By diegzandlulz
    I have to be honest, the new update for mobile is awful. The worst problem is that every time you leave the app open, switch out of it, and then open the app again, it always crashes and it is very frustrating, as I do this often. The app also crashes if you turn off your phone while using it and then turn it on and go back into the app, which is all incredibly inconvenient and tedious. Also, the new UI for the comments and recommended videos under the video being watched is quite bad. It made no sense to move comments from where they have been for years, and there had been no complaints. Every time I scroll down, I am met with a “Comments have been moved” notification. It’s also pretty clunky that you have to actually open comments separately from recommended videos instead of just scrolling into them, which could be easily done if comments were just reverted to the way they were. The recommended videos also have huge thumbnails now, and seem to take up extra screen space for no reason but to just make you scroll more. Please, next time, don’t make change just to make change, especially on things no one had any complaints about. We already know how many times the UI has been changed in the past for no reason, and it makes absolutely zero sense to do so when everybody is happy with how it is.

    I try to read the comments in all the videos I watch but it always says that I need to update. Even when I update it, I can't read community posts or read comments. I even get my video paused sometimes, and then it doesn't start again. Eternal buffering. I don't know what's going on, but this only happens with YouTube. And- I keep having internet problems.

  • Sensors too many videos May 26, 2020

    By jasneskis
    1. This app is very good for the most part. Lately it has been censoring too many videos. I have to now go to other places on the web to see what I need to learn. 2. When casting there needs to be a way to change the play back speed of a video. It works on small computer, phone and tablet. It needs to work when casting also. 3. When casting I can have videos added to queue to play in order I choose. It would be nice to be able to set this feature for the computer, tablet and phone too. 4. It would be nice if I didn’t loose my active queue list every time I stopped casting. Than I have to set it up all over again . Usually I play videos I found and want to see 1 minute so they will be saved to history and easy to find again to set up again on my queue list. 5. The 10 second foreword or back is nice when casting videos. This feature should be available on tablet and computer. Stop start rewind is an extremely important feature for my use when learning. It would be nice if time were available in 30 second forward/back times also.

    I used to like this app but rn I dont think so. The consistent ads are just really annoying! Especially if you get 2 ads and you CAN'T skip it, it's annoying and time consuming. I also dont like how they moved the comments section at the top. And when I download something offline and turn on the subtitles, it somehow doesn't show up everytime, fix it. There's also seem to be a problem with YT deleting millions of views from specific groups which we dont appreciate. Fans worked hard for it!

  • Pure awesomeness but... Jun 28, 2018

    By slendypants
    The app is unbelievably good and runs really well but here are the issues that NEED to be fixed: 1.the notification-the notification system use to work really well but nowadays it’s broken and it doesn’t notify the subscriber about the newest upload. 2.the lag-this problem is caused by disconnecting or lagging right when you click on the video, when this happens the video plays but with the quality taken down and the audio of the video not being set as the video(the video plays but the audio starts after a few seconds). 3.same problem but-this problem is basically the same but it happens during the video with no lag or disconnections. 4.comments-for some reason nowadays when you want to add a comment in the comment section there’s no problem but when you’ve added the comment and leave, after a few hours if you return to see your comment for a reason it’s not there. 5.basically the same with the likes-it’s just the same but when you like the video and leave and after a few hours you return the video isn’t liked by your account. That’s it, this is what I’ve been experiencing for the past couple of weeks. I apologize about the few grammar mistakes I’m not American or English so I’m sorry. I hope you read this and I hope that this helps you to fix these problems. ♥️♥️

  • I have an idea for the inbox tab Jun 8, 2020

    By Stoocy05
    I love using the app so much, and other than the comment section being moved, it’s great. I have an idea, though. What if you change the way the “Inbox” tab works? Like when you click the “Inbox” tab, there are two separate tabs on the top. One should obviously be for new videos from your subscription feed and the other should be notifications from comments you’ve left. I tend to comment quite a lot and often find myself scrolling through many videos in my inbox just to find the comment I’m looking for. I also know that many don’t like commenting, so that tab will be kinda useless for them, but what if you make it an option for the users in settings? It would really improve user experience, especially those like me, who like commenting a lot. It would be nice to see this implemented in the app!

  • Garbage on iPad Aug 16, 2019

    By Really_tried
    Going full screen, moving around the video, or just have a transition from the video to the ad will almost guarantee that the whole app will glitch out. Not only do I have to exit out and close the app multiple times to fix the problem, I have to wait for the sounds from the ad/video to stop playing-even after I exit the app-then go back in and have everything back to normal. I also have to click on the notification feed multiple times until it registers that my inbox has already opened and stop displaying that number on top of the icon, which is the number of new videos uploaded by channels I have the bell ringed. And lastly, there is just no support for the implementation of the community feed on the iPad, even though other devices do. It’s just stupid. Garbage company, garbage decisions, garbage staff. Vimeo is looking better than ever.

    Great app to use if you want to kill time! I honestly have only one complaint, but it isn't enough to make me rate this app 4 stars. See, I honestly don't like the new comment section placement. I love to browse on comments to kill time and it was easy because I had to scroll up when I was done, thus taking up another 5mins. Now, I just click the X and I'm out. I have a channel myself and it's really easy to start! Love that 18+ warner! It really helped me in so many situations!!!

  • Overall good app but there are some problems Sep 3, 2018

    By mgoldman78
    I use this app very often! But of course, any good thing also has some down sides. I think that you guys should ban the people who truly deserve it. And there are TONS out there who really need to get taken down(Mainly Logan and Jake Paul) also, I think the three dots by each video should be put in a different spot. Because if I am trying to press it, it will click on the video and I will have to try to tap on it repeatedly until it finally works. For example, say you see a video from a youtuber you dislike, you try to press the three dots to get the video off of there. But when you try to press it, it clicks on the video instead. You go back and try to do it again. But it clicks on the video once again. You do this repeatedly until it finally works. This has happened to me too often. But overall, this is a really well made app.

  • One major bug Oct 15, 2018

    By Storm flare
    I’ve had this app for quite a long time. Years, really. I haven’t had any major issues throughout, but recently I’ve had a bug where, for a specific few content creators, there’s a bug with ads that makes the actual video unwatchable. What happens is, I click on a video and it loads an ad. The ad then cuts and it changes to the video. This has happened, usually if there’s a loading error with ad. However, then the video cuts back to the ad, which doesn’t load, and cuts back to the video, and so on and so forth. I thought it was just a one-off, so I tried another video by the same person. Same issue. I restarted my phone and the app, no fix. I came back days later, same issue with the same person. I’ve only had it happen with two creators, but they are ones I would regularly watch so I’m a little annoyed.

  • I love this app, but... Mar 23, 2018

    By Junebaby1962
    This is my favourite app, but when I put my music playlist on shuffle, it will play maybe one or two songs. After those one or two videos, it will jump back to the second video on the list (it shows my videos in order even when it’s on shuffle) and it will play it over and over and over again. And when I skip it, it won’t even go to the next video, it will stay on that video. Also, sometimes when I turn on shuffle, it will show it in shuffle order, and it will have the perfect order, but when I listen to a few songs, it will start on the song I just listened to, and shuffle the whole thing again. I don’t know if it’s supposed to shuffle over and over, but I thought that I should mention it. But, please fix these possible bugs, because once again, this is my favourite app. Thank you!

    Not really enjoying my experience now watching on youtube. There's too much ads now. When I watch official videos like teasers, trailers, or music videos, there are two ads before I can watch the video then another one or two after i watched. Then sometimes an ad appears out of nowhere while i'm watching the video. There are also ads even it is just a fan made video, even though those channels are not monetized
