    YouTube’s become a haven for watching crazy videos for hours a day, but you can also find some instructional videos on there as well. This includes at least 5 videos about learning Morse code. My husband and I are always watching videos on YouTube.

  • Playlist needs to be fixed Sep 23, 2021

    I just updated this earlierYesterday on September 22, 2021 and the app itself I really don’t like the new update to it because I watch lol playlist or videos sideways so I can see it easier and a bigger screen than just watching in a smaller version standing in portrait mode and because of this new update my video playlist or the description will now be in the right hand side of the screen in full screen mode when you watch the movie as the screen is divided into two parts left-hand side will be the video itself and then the right side will either be a playlist if you’re watching a video on a playlist or I will just be description of the video itself and it’s very irritating especially in a playlist as I try to sometimes fast forward and when I try to do that I end up hitting a video in the playlist and it goes to that or when I try to hit close so I can see the rest of the video, when I go back to re-open the playlist because I listen to some movies on repeat and after 5-10 minutes the playlist itself is not on the screen anymore and I have to close the video and go back and open my playlist all over again.

    Google, thank you for making this amazing and work well app. But I have 4 issues. It takes some time to load, when I watch a video, and now I get almost 5 adds at the same time. Another issue is, when I post it says to many strikes. I hate that! Because I had 1K but, then I got a strike, and I decided to quit since I couldn’t post anymore, please fix it. The last reason is, when I’m watching a vid, and I go to there channel, I tap videos but, then it takes me back to home page. Please fix this app google! It’s good in many ways, but I just don’t like how it can effect our account or even email, this made me really scared and sad, please google! Fix this! I don’t want to have to keep retrying after getting 3 strikes, and I have 1 idea, that google didn’t do, maybe you could put an content tab, and you answer what you want and ur youtuber can do that type of content. BUT! GOOGLE PLEASE FIX THIS APP WHEN I RESTARTED I ONLY GOT 14 subs back! I’m really sad about this. I want this problem fixed.

  • 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.

    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!
  • 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.

    What an amazing difference with the latest update I downloaded from YouTube. I've never seen this app work so good. It appears that they've Incorporated a volume boost along with a bass boost so when I'm connected to my Bluetooth speaker just the slightest increase on my volume sounds great. I'm hoping that YouTube leaves it alone and doesn't make it go away with their next update. This is the best I've ever heard it sounds wonderful
  • I listen to the rain videos all night to sleep with and have subscribed to at least 100 sites. Nov 10, 2021

    By pcdavis80
    I have so many interests from cooking Keto, the adventures of Marc Abel from Colorado Bigfoot and Adler Farms to name just a few. Some of the sites I visit feel more like family like The Hillbillies, Colorado Bigfoot, Grandpa From Adler Farms and more. I am grateful that it is free and all I have to do is watch sales pitches because have found some good purchases and items because of You Tube advertisements from awesome walking shoes that I also bought for my sister who loved them to an electronic that increases the charge on your phone battery in minutes. Thank you for providing use, the subscribers with such a great platform. I do have one issue that concerns me and that is censorship but I believe that issue will iron out when the next administration is elected. I had thought about boycotting you tube for the practice but have decided to wait and see what happens for now.
  • 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.
  • FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE Feb 9, 2021

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

    The amount of Ads in videos is too much. I remember a time when there was 1 ad, that you skip after 5 seconds, before a video. But now every video has at least 6... Sometimes there is an ad in the middle of someone talking so their sentence gets abruptly cut off by an UNSKIPABLE! Car Insurance ad. Which causes me to lose narative disentence. Oh and just because I Google something does not mean i want to buy it. The removal of the Dislike button is idiotic. Out of Characters...

    They are removing one-star reviews to make the app look better because I had to rewrite this 19 times now. I'm still going to use it to watch the people I'm subscribed to. But they group notifications together now which is really annoying since I want to see the individual videos, we can't see the dislikes anymore, and there's a huge bot problem that has been going on for years now. Until they fix all of these problems, I'm going to leave it at a one-star.
  • My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!! Nov 20, 2021

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

    So many times it goes down a link i did not press. And then what i was looking at is gone. Better filtering of the input gesture/touch actions is needed so badly. The interface sucks, it constantly refreshes so there is no chance to watch something you saw later, one wiggle of your thumb and the list of suggested videos changes so you can't watch the one you wanted. No ability to go back if you were attempting to fast forward but the UI decided to skip to the next video instead..

I have been on your Help Center site numerous times to try to get information on on how to install the app on the temporary phone that I am using until I receive my replacement phone. I have emailed & texted . Asking that somebody would call me to fix the issues. No real help from you. You deserve 0 ☆'s.

    I use YouTube all the time. I overall enjoy it. Lose one star for removing dislike button and censorship. Losing another two more star because casting keeps disconnecting, effectively making casting function useless. Recent updates have not fixed this. Been a problem for over six weeks. This is not acceptable, phone and app updates are not fixing it.

    Because somehow getting rid of dislikes is better for content creators, they ignored the people's opinions and make the viewing worse for everyone. Not to mention the ads last longer then the video. Also, the shorts are broken, instead of swiping through all of the ones on your page, you must exit, then click the next one

  • I hate the ads Sep 17, 2021

    By Prelly33
    Seriously 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!
  • Jan 15, 2022

    By Jackson Norris
    The ads are absolutely appalling. Weird sexual stuff targeted at children for the sake of making a quick buck from shady, immoral companies. Creators are expected to keep their videos squeaky clean and free if anything remotely sexual, and yet YouTube forces you to watch the weirdest garbage in the form of ads. YouTube is just a prime example of corporate greed.

  • 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.

    The videos there are super creepy one had a video of someone taking a video with their house lights off and there was a shadow that moved but when they turn on the lights nothing was there and there are a lot of ghost videos too so if you’re an adult or a kid that really loves scary stuff you can download that but I don’t think even adults can take that but then again adults can but kids I don’t think so if you have this app and you don’t like the scary videos try to search for videos that aren’t scary but if there are no videos that are not scary then just delete it I’m saying that if you luck getting scared go ahead and delete it but here’s what I’m saying this app is super scary and people like scary some people not all of them so this is just a warning ⚠️ getting scared 😱 is fun but only on Halloween and people in here recorded ghosts 👻💀so only download if like getting scared 😱!
  • 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!
  • Can’t change my PFP Dec 31, 2020

    By khalid nazari
    Hi so today i decided to change my Profile Pic but when i clicked “save” nothing would happen even if i hit “Cancel” still nothing would happen, it would just stay on the screen where you make you’re new profile pic, please fix this Edit: Hi again, i would like to tell you that i still cannot change my Profile Pic, I don’t know why one of the biggest apps in the world right now can’t even take Changing your Profile pic, i tried deleting the app so i could test if i can Change my PFP if i had installed it again, and the answer is no, And listen i know it’s not that big of a deal it’s just a Profile pic but come on! I have to completely close the app in order to get out of the screen that you choose your new pfp because the stupid cancel and save buttons don’t work even if you press them a million times.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • the new update May 16, 2020

    By Mahalhaaa
    this new update is absolutely atrocious. i understand having innovation towards wanting more for your viewers but the execution was poor. The comment section is where I could be able to talk and relate to the interest of video and as i scrolled down i could potentially see the other videos that i wanted to watch. Moving the comments under the description is problematic because 1. it’s easily missable 2. it made going/making a comment more difficult 3. the fluidity of scrolling for other videos and going to the comments made sense 4. having the back button on the left side (in addition to muscle memory of clicking on the newly “escape” right side) makes it plain tedious. the thumbnails are also an issue because they are too large. one video thumbnail alone takes up almost half the screen and with two of them it takes up the whole screen. less is more, and bigger doesn’t always mean better. please consider reinventing the layout because it’s problematic having people used to one idea and completely changing it.
  • Amazing app! But new update ruined it. Dec 14, 2021

    By Big problem with game
    And no, this is no because of the dislike feature being removed, though I do find that a really dumb idea overall. This is about how you KEEP PUTTING THINGS ON THE SIDE. First it was with descriptions, which I did find annoying, but not the end of the world. This however, is just plain stupid. Now your putting the comments on the side. Why?? What’s wrong with it being where it was before? All this is doing is making it harder to use the app. Not just from enjoyment, but literally. It makes it hide certain features such as the recommended video for the video your watching. And now you can’t see the original comment as well as the replies at the same time. Just really a incredibly stupid idea. I’ve been using this app for as long as I can remember and have loved it. I’ve embraced the changes I’ve disliked including removing the dislike feature, and have been find with it. But this? This is too far. Please please change this. It’s not helping anyone at all. Cheers! -an old fan

    It was ok in the past but now it's just a meh for me. YouTube was amazing in the past... until the newer functions were added. The noticed ones were shorts replacing the explore button, the unlike button being removed and replaced with the dislike button to "protect" small YouTubers/Vtubers, the ads have grown progressively worse due to Google using your search history and your voice for ad personalization, lastly the updated recommendation system for videos. This was beneficial to youtube.
  • Alright, but flawed in fundamental ways Oct 22, 2020

    By Sevallis
    The iOS app constantly forgets the actively playing background video when I lock the screen, and even if it appears on the lock screen to pause/play, trying to start and stop it via Bluetooth headphone burins also constantly fails and instead starts playback of something random from my Music app. This apparently will never be fixed? Not being able to listen to video from my locked phone without paying a bunch of money monthly is rubbish and just eats up battery life. Also, when I swipe a video down and then go to close it, get rid of that stupid bounce animation that moves it if I had just liked a video. That animation makes me miss the X close button due to it moving around and getting bumped by other notifications. Make the other notifications come up above the video at the bottom and not move the playing video minimized strip, and make it instantly move to the bottom predictably so I don’t miss the close button and re-maximize it.
  • Ads Jul 16, 2020

    By SynthWendigo
    They push quite literal porn ads for adult mobile games, often using footage for something else entirely to pretend it’s not adult content, and then demonetize any creator who says anything outside of their radical left leaning biased. I get so many targeted ads for alcohol based on my age and location and have NO way to shut those down, and I can’t even use their support page, as I am greeted with an error saying I am not authorized to view that page. As someone who deals with drinking problems, and autism that’s forced me to stop playing games with predatory monetizing in place, seeing these ads constantly really does impact me in a negative way. Including the GTA Online ones of their Diamond Casino adverts of come in to spin the wheel for a chance to win a new car. I only bother to watch on my iPhone, and I don’t like being harassed to buying Premium just to NOT be bombarded with ads promoting gambling, alcohol abuse, and the adult mobile titles. I get they are targeted toward my age, but seeing beer adverts at 4 am is entirely out of line.

    We really depend on You Tube to learn how to make , fix and build things !!! Especially if the directions we bought them with are scant or in another language ;) ( think kids toys , faucets, murphy beds …) It has introduced us to all kinds of subjects ( cooking , Montessori learning , gardening on all levels, bee husbandry, soap and craft making, even the best way to teach an anxious teen to drive ! - ) we love the hard working knowledgeable people we see! My family also depends on faithful freedom of speech politically, allowing people to make up their own minds along the way . Especially with careful viewing , analyzing and conversation about subjects histories. I have heard of U tube censoring or dropping a chosen video in histories and really hope careful protocol has gone into this practice . I guess we all need to look at our 2nd amendment. Unless, of course , its about hacking . Ugh Thank you U Tube- you have enriched our lives and reduced frustration here on many levels !
  • 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.
  • FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE Feb 9, 2021

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

  • Not user-friendly Oct 20, 2021

    By Jbmore2005
    I 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.
  • Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalized Dec 13, 2021

    By 40volume
    Suggested 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.

  • Downloads/Premium Oct 28, 2020

    By 김 재넌
    For days now it keeps deleting my downloads. I’ve downloaded over 200 videos and now they’re gone. Twice. I don’t know if it’s the update, but you need to fix this. I’m paying almost $17 and it doesn’t even work right. I keep re-downloading them, but a couple hours later, they’re gone. First it says it’s having trouble loading them, then it straight up deletes them. This is one of the big features I use and if it keeps doing this I might as well cancel the subscription. And don’t get me started on the ‘no ad’ feature. Every time I go on a different device on the same account I have premium on, I get ads. I’m actually starting to get annoyed. I use the downloads to listen to music offline. Each time I go offline; “Cannot load downloads” and then, “No videos downloaded.” Please fix this because it’s a long process to download all of the videos back onto my device. If anyone is going to get premium, do not buy it until they fix this issue.
  • Comment Likes no longer go up. Fix it! Oct 26, 2020

    By David Wonn
    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!
  • YOU TUBE MUST REMAIN IMPARTIAL FOR ALL Dec 10, 2020

    By Wowie Waui
    Please 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.
  • Good app back in the day Sep 24, 2020

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

    The amount of Ads in videos is too much. I remember a time when there was 1 ad, that you skip after 5 seconds, before a video. But now every video has at least 6... Sometimes there is an ad in the middle of someone talking so their sentence gets abruptly cut off by an UNSKIPABLE! Car Insurance ad. Which causes me to lose narative disentence. Oh and just because I Google something does not mean i want to buy it. The removal of the Dislike button is idiotic. Out of Characters...

    So many times it goes down a link i did not press. And then what i was looking at is gone. Better filtering of the input gesture/touch actions is needed so badly. The interface sucks, it constantly refreshes so there is no chance to watch something you saw later, one wiggle of your thumb and the list of suggested videos changes so you can't watch the one you wanted. No ability to go back if you were attempting to fast forward but the UI decided to skip to the next video instead..

  • 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.
  • Not a fan of auto play while scrolling Dec 26, 2021

    By Frizzlebratz
    I’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.
  • Like app BUT Feb 15, 2020

    By cay-os
    I actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much.
  • Awful bug!!!! May 21, 2020

    By madid503
    The app is absolutely amazing and I use it all the time. But there seems to be a bug job the app to where I can’t watch any music videos on the app with the original singing, all that pops up when I type in a song is the instrumental versions of the song then when I go to find other songs that I saved there is a little bar that pops up saying that the video must be approved first before I can view it but doesn’t give me the option to fix it. I haven’t been able to find any of the music I regularly listen to and I can’t even find singers accounts to view all their albums and music! It looks like everything has been totally deleted except for all of the instrumental versions which is absolutely not what I wanted to listen to. Also the comments, which I love to scroll through while the video is playing, is always saying that the comments have been restricted from my viewing because of some restriction mode that I didn’t even know was there let alone turned it on. PLEASE FIX 🚨🚧⚠️‼️

    They are removing one-star reviews to make the app look better because I had to rewrite this 19 times now. I'm still going to use it to watch the people I'm subscribed to. But they group notifications together now which is really annoying since I want to see the individual videos, we can't see the dislikes anymore, and there's a huge bot problem that has been going on for years now. Until they fix all of these problems, I'm going to leave it at a one-star.
  • My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!! Nov 20, 2021

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

    Because somehow getting rid of dislikes is better for content creators, they ignored the people's opinions and make the viewing worse for everyone. Not to mention the ads last longer then the video. Also, the shorts are broken, instead of swiping through all of the ones on your page, you must exit, then click the next one
  • I hate the ads Sep 17, 2021

    Seriously 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!

    The ads are absolutely appalling. Weird sexual stuff targeted at children for the sake of making a quick buck from shady, immoral companies. Creators are expected to keep their videos squeaky clean and free if anything remotely sexual, and yet YouTube forces you to watch the weirdest garbage in the form of ads. YouTube is just a prime example of corporate greed.

    No longer stays connected to Chromecast. Just randomly disconnects back to boot screen. I checked around it sounds like a well known issue that hasnt been addressed since at least November. 3 months and it hasn't been acknowledged.

    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!
  • Stagnant monetized development Sep 27, 2020

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

    The 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”?
