    Linking the mobile app to my chromecast has become extremely buggy. The app gets confused about what video is playing on my tv. Titles, comment sections and thumbnails seem to hold over from video to video (especially if I exit the mobile app to do something else). In these situations, the app also tends to become unresponsive; adding videos to queue/playing a new video doesn't always work. It's gotten to the point where I have to continuously force close the app to get it to respond correctly.

  • A Few Annoying Problems... Feb 11, 2021

    By ME I SENT THIS!
    I’ve been using this app for years and it has been great. It works well and is a nice quality app. I have a few problems though, and it has to do with the subscription tab. The first problem is that it will often say that someone has posted (showing a little blue dot on their icon) but they haven’t. No big deal, but if I click it to make the blue dot go away, then go back to a different tab (such as the home) it will put the blue dot back. That makes it so there is a red dot on the subscription button which just bothers me. It also usually happens to people with less that 1k subs. The second problem I have is that I don’t get all community posts. I am subscribed to a lot of people, and a good amount of them make posts regularly. Maybe this is supposed to happen, but I don’t get them all, and I would like to. The last problem (which I find more funny) is that when I click all to see everyone I am subscribed to, it shows everyone as normal. But, if I leave the app and come back, or slide up on my phone (to show brightness or flashlight) it will switch around the names so that they do not match the right person. Other than these three problems, the app is amazing.

  • Censorship Apr 11, 2021

    By Gilfaroth
    While I am aware that the creators of a social media platform have the right to allow content or ban content as they deem appropriate, it saddens me that pressure from the loudest political/social squeaking wheel gets the grease. I was hoping at least one of the social media giants would have the fortitude to endure a little socioeconomic headwind to create a less skewed playing field for more divergent expression. I am not proposing a platform for hate, but something that is more empathetic toward the expressive freedoms of the user, regardless of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation. As users, we already are aware (or should be) that social media is a vehicle for personal expression, not as a source for factual truth. For users to put that burden on the provider is like placing the burden of our safety on the car regardless of how erratic we drive or how impaired our judgment may be when under the influence. What we believe or accept is our responsibility alone. Please do not treat us as children who cannot think for ourselves. If social media as a whole tailors itself to become a platform of only certain forms of expression or certain approved facts, then it has ceased to become a social conversation of divergent expression and has become a loose form of propaganda of the accepted sociopolitical norms.

    Youtube is an iconic app. The original music app. I think the old style of Studio was easier to use. Now it never loads up or when your a creator the fact you can create on the app now is great. But the tidying up of your creation is in a different and less user friendl. Im sure it will sort itself out. I just tried to upload a song i created and i ciuldnt even log on. A little frustrating. As now it claims to be tidying up thevsound etc. Yet it shuts the screen off and the sound is no different

  • Two Issues with this app Feb 15, 2021

    By JIyanah21
    Hi, so I’m having a two issues with this app so hopefully someone will see this; 1) My playlists are not updating: so I added a few songs to one of my playlist and when I click on the song that I want to play it’s not there even though it said that it was added to my playlist so when I refresh the page hoping that it would work it’s still not there (I.e. I have 222 songs in my playlist but when I click on one song it says I only have 220) I tried to rearrange the songs in the playlist to see if it would show up this time but it doesn’t which leads to the next issue... the refreshing the page issue. 2) When I refresh the page all of my playlist are deleted the only thing that’s on the page is my watch later, history, but when I refresh the page again some of my playlists come back but the rest of them are still missing (and no I didn’t delete them) I refresh the page again and all of them are back but I feel like I shouldn’t have to refresh the page three times in order to get all of my playlists back you know what I mean? I tried deleting the app and reinstalling to see if that would work but it doesn’t and this has been going on for the past couple of days.

    YouTube is great...BUT... The only only reason why I rightly gave it 1 star is because of how YouTube will pause your video just to ask "continue watching?" even if I am using my device. YouTube, this is very frustrating and completely ruins the user experience; please get rid of this feature or, at the very least, allow it to be an option to turn off. I will gladly change my review to a higher rating if you act upon this.

    Whenever I open this app, the loading screen is long, and even after the loading is finished, there would be a message popping up "Youtube is not responding, do you want to close it?". The only temporary way I can open it, is to clear its' data. And when I try to play a video, it doesn't play, it only tries to load.

    What I love about the app: the connectivity between different devices. What I hate about it: ads being played every 3 minutes or in the middle of a video just to push you to pay premium, the new algorithm trying to shove rubbish content down my throat, did I mention the ads? No more ads!!!!

  • Watch Later Jan 27, 2021

    By Shreyas21
    Watch later playlists now only load 20 videos even if I use a different sort by function. If I use oldest or newest, only 20 videos show up. If I switch to manual, I only have access to those 20 videos. Every other playlist seems fine. This is one update annoyance. Furthermore, you moved the subscriptions to the 4th button from the left after years of it being in the center. I am tired of having to close the creator / record / upload screen after naturally choosing to click the center most button, WHERE YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. we got used to the comments even tho the UI within comments is garbage, and now you do this. Do you like making the app worse or are you just messing with us at this point. At best I could argue that it improves RAM and cache usage due to not loading everything unless demanded. A good idea done with poor execution is still a poor idea.

    I like YouTube. However the Closed Captions for the hearing impaired are kind of inaccurate. The odd thing is that the video freezes occasionally. So i complained about it here. And suddenly, the video screen on YouTube was animated again. Maybe i should complain on Google's Ratings more often. it gets results. Cannot post ratings. Weird day for wifi. i Tried updating this app but it didn't work. Very weird. updated. i don't mind the ads. i realize you have to pay your employees and invest inR&D

  • Why did I get suspended and please give it back! Apr 5, 2021

    By a sleepy gamer
    Ok so it’s a good app ngl it is but I don’t seem to understand why I got terminated/suspended well yes I under the community guidelines but I need it a lot for my school use since we usually have videos the need us to go into the app for learning like math Ela etc so I really need it back I will follow the guidelines also it’s a great app just add a feature that just actually gives you a warning instead of automatically suspending your channel also if you don’t want people talking trash in the comments just literally add a fricken types of videos where you can speak on what’s on your mind and others that it doesn’t let you say that sincerely :a tired person and this may be my last sentence but why doesn’t the signed out person have the same access as a person signed in please fix that google also why can’t we comment?

  • 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!

  • Im triggered about the comment section Nov 6, 2020

    By my love of life
    I hate the new update for the comments. I hate having to press something just to go trough the comments. I would rather scroll down then tap on the bar thing. I hate when the videos are really big i like it how it used to be. Please change it. Hi again! I have some issues I would like to address! So on the Ipad im begging to have community posts able to be seen. Just make it like the phone but wider. Its stressing me how much I miss stuff because people normally post on the community post option. I have to go on my phone just to see it. Another one is PLEASE update the notification area. It use to be amazing before until you guys changed it. I am not going to lie but you people are ruining your app to the worst. I don’t wanna come off harsh or anything but it is very annoying. I am gonna keep my rating on 4 stars till you guys improve. For now it’s staying on 4. Another issue is the search thing glitch (i think glitch). It would just not let me delete my search or click on it. I have no idea why but i would like to no because its annoying me a lot. I wanna say thank you for your time!

    YouTube's great, the community and all that, but I'm wondering about like, the videos, why is it that sometimes some of the vids are pixeled/blurred? Sometimes it happens when you go to someone's channel or searching stuff up, even in home. I don't mean this as hate! I don't know if it's a bug or not. I haven't seen anyone rate about this so yeah

  • Fine, but one detail.. Feb 8, 2021

    By Pencilsn
    The app functions about as well as any app does. It’s nothing revolutionary, and I do think it’s gotten better, at least on the iPad version. However, there’s one issue (that really just annoys me more than anything.) On the bottom row, on the corner of the icon that indicates subscriptions, a red dot will appear to (I’m guessing) notify you that there’s a new video from someone you’re subscribed to. But most of the time, the red dot appears even when there’s nothing new. It’ll go away when you click on it and are in the subscription box, stay away when you go to a different page, but randomly appear again shortly after. Typically it’s when you refresh any page, but I’ve seen it reappear out on nowhere for no reason when I’m just browsing. It’s super annoying to think there’s something new when there isn’t. It’s such a tiny problem, but if you think about it, so’s a mosquito. That little subscription alert that shows up for no reason is like getting bit by a mosquito over and over and over again. I’m covered in bites and very aggravated. Thank you.

    I like this app, but the most recent update of sliding your finger over the screen to move to another scene anoys me because now I have to be wary of not sliding my finger on the screen while playing a video or else I skip what I'm watching or go back to the begining. If there's a way for me to disable this please show me and thank you

    Great app for watching videos. The cursor on the search screen is red which is annoying and should be black. The icons are too fine and hard to see. Everytime this app is updated, there are too many unnecessary changes. When I watch a video, Liked Videos pops up and when I close this, a banner appears at the bottom of the screen. This is very distracting as it covers up other videos when you are scrolling down the page. Please remove this.

  • Good app but advertisement overload Sep 16, 2020

    By ScarletSkies4
    I understand the need for advertisements but it’s to the point now that it’s negatively impacting my experience. Now that there’s two, back to back ads in every break it’s irritating how much I have to interact with the app just to finish watching the video. The more I use the app the worse the experience gets. I usually like to use the app while doing other things like cooking or cleaning. I mostly listen and don’t always have my phone in hand. In an 11 minute video with 6 ads, the middle break had a 30 second unskippable ad followed by a 2 minute ad that was skippable. Unless I am physically on my phone to return to the video that would be 2:30 minutes of ads just for 1 of 3 ad breaks in an 11 minute video. It’s overload. I get that using the free version means you gets ads but it’s overshadowing the content. I don’t want to interact this much with something I’m watching. It’s not a game app. Guess I’ll just stick to watching it on the desktop with my ad blocker. Otherwise, yeah YT is ok. They’re just getting into Pandora territory which is disappointing. Didn’t mind the ads until recently.

  • So many problems Jul 19, 2020

    By Gjvthxffeesxbgf
    The loading times can be pretty awful. Whenever I switch to a different tab or turn off my phone and play the video I was currently watching, the video takes sooo long to load when I unpause it. This doesn’t occur when I’m using the app and I don’t get why it happens when the app is running in the background. I understand why ads are a thing and this hasn’t been a problem before but now it feels like overkill. Every time I watch a video an ad pops up. Sometimes they’re 15 non-skippable ads and at its worst there’s two. And look, taking away the comments for videos that have been COPPA’d is one thing and removing the mini player is another. It makes no sense. I don’t get how this would be harmful for kids. And the way you decided what videos are for kids is awful. Some of creators have moved on from their channels so when you automatically decide their videos are for kids it removes a whole decade of comment sections. And I hate how I have to worry about my niece stumbling upon two anime girls talking about sex because you automatically decided all animation is for kids.

  • 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.

  • Moving the comment section back May 13, 2020

    By Leewan Leewan
    It was a good app. Didn’t like the change for moving the on-going video to the small bar too much cos it really doesn’t let me view the video concurrently while I am scrolling through other stuffs because it’s so small. But it wasn’t a deal breaker. Now the comment section is. It’s not user friendly neither is it intuitive. There are changes that just take time to get used to but it’s for the better, but the change to the comment section is definitely not one of them. The movement to scroll makes a lot more sense than requiring me to tap to expand. It’s entirely too easy to exit out the comment section when I want to return to all comments after I clicked into the more replies. I was more than happy when you guys changed it back the first time only to find it’s been updated again recently. Please stop trying to move the comment section can you? Even if you had to do this, then at least let me swipe right to go back to the “all comment” after I clicked into one reply, instead of only taping the “back” arrow on the top left.

  • The End Feb 21, 2021

    By soothsayer 🎱
    What has happened to YT is tragic. I have been a fan and member since the second year it came out, if I’m not mistaken. I’ve been on so long that I originally signed up with AOL bc that was the only thing available at the time. That’s how long I have been on YT. So I am a loooong time member and fan. It used to be one of the best things that has ever happened to the internet. It was fun, exciting, mysterious, educational and groundbreaking. NOT ANYMORE. It is now a shell of its former self. It is now like everything else. Created only to make money. Ad after ad after ad. It’s an invasion. I am interested in what people have to say or what they made or did. Now it’s, insurance ads, political ads, censorship and control. It’s worse than “reality shows” and reality shows are by far the absolute worse thing ever. I used to spend countless hours on it, now I spend less than an hour per week...if that. Horrible. I’m just like everyone else...I’m moving on. The sad thing is that YT doesn’t give a blip about what I think or what any of us think. This has been proven by its continued status of nonsense and greed. Every update is NOT to fix a glitch it’s to place a fresh batch of ads! No thanks. I’m out!
