    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.

    Use this app all the time, more than Netflix, Hulu, or any other service. But suddenly my phone will unlink from my chromecast and I'll lose my whole queue which started recently and is very sporadic. On top of that I no longer have the option to change playback speed, which is a very important feature for me when watching educational videos. Very unhappy with the changes that are happening and the problems I've been experiencing and I can't even put all my issues in 1 review for character limit
  • 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.
  • Too many ads and too long Apr 29, 2022

    By Kokoemo
    I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.

    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 has always been great. But lately it has been stopping and pausing in the middle of the videos. I put a video on for 2 mins and it stops the video. I don't want to uninstall and then reinstall it like I would do other apps. It's the fear of losing channels. Please fix this immediately. I enjoy my YouTube premium. That is what I mainly watch.
  • 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.

  • Concerned about censorship and other issues. Apr 9, 2022

    By Group1-OG
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The complexity of forgotten realms Jun 19, 2022

    By Magus Kalkin
    While engaging as fantasy the author needs to revisit the roots of Drizzt even if it means a fight to the death. Also the story should be expanded to include other exotic heroes to create longer sequels. Only then would a prequel to forgotten realms be acceptable and later a story detailing the Elven cultures and languages including the Dark Elven alphabet. Just food for thought. Sincerely, HRM Paul Douglas Fraley aka Paul half Elven. - The incident of STNG the briar patch: while the Riker maneuver was a success, the subspace tear allowed astral and chronaton energies into a subspace pocket of limbo that negative spiritual entities to tap into that allowed them to bring about crisis on infinite earths in the shared multiverse of the DC-Marvel Continuity, as well as triggering the secret wars in the marvel side of that universe. Entities calling themselves Satan and Dormamu. Therefore it is the decision of the Time Variance Authority of circa 2020 C. E. Earth 616, that Star fleet be notified to gain advice from their science council how to contact both the Edo and Q for their help. Colonel Paul D Fraley of Star fleet security council.

    First of all, I experience frequent crashes. It starts to lag, then it crashes to the homescreen. Also, the resolution switcher used to be great. Now I need to do extra taps to get to where I need to go for actual high quality, not 480p, but 1440p. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I prefer the old layout. I also experience frequent lagging and crashes, despite the fact that I have a snapdragon 888.
  • Bring Back Downvotes May 12, 2022

    By hgighjb
    Please 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.

    A great app, but it just can't stay connected to a TV. Make sure you save any queue of videos to a playlist, because your phone will disconnect from the TV and when you try to reconnect, your queue gets wiped out. It is disappointing that this can't/won't get fixed, I've been using this app for probably 5 years and the bug remains. I actually think it is worse than ever now. At this point I can't even keep the same queue on my phone as in my TV for a full fifteen minutes.

    This app is a necessary evil to use, but it doesn't help that it keeps degrading. Ads have become more prevalent and aggressive, especially first-party ads for premium accounts and YouTube Shorts, both of which are wastes of time and money. The interface is poorly designed and makes navigation unnecessarily difficult while it fills your screen with "suggestions". On a positive note, all this mess keeps you from overusing the app since you'll want to close it as soon as possible.

    6/11/22: There's an error when you go to switch accounts. I tried everything including logging out and uninstalling. Now, I'm completely logged out of the app. This is only happening on my phone. It's always going to be glitch especially when updates occur without an announcement so you have to go to Twitter. As for the latest update, please return the "oldest uploaded" filter option. It makes it easier for us to watch channels with loads of videos from the beginning.

    Like a lot of people have said, the app has been going downhill. A lot of the times, it will freeze my video when I do a simple actions such as clicking on the channel or going into the comments. Then, THE MENU lags and bhffers as well, which is mind-blowing. And I don't even have a half-bad device either, which is the S20. The app really needs optimization. Also, why do you have to click an "X" to remove the UI of the video? It was fine as it was. It's kinda stupid.

    I've always liked the YouTube app. But now it's starting to tick me off. Before, when I would have the video playing, it would still play in the background even when I click out of YouTube. But now it won't let me. Every time I click on settings under a YouTube video to change the quality, it goes blank sometimes. It also keeps freezing. It's a miracle I get through a whole video. Y'all gotta fix this update. Also IMO, no need for YouTube shorts. Pleeaaase fix these issues. It's getting buggy.

    I like to watch YouTube to help me relax and de-stress after a long day, but lately, there have been CONSTANT ads! There will be ads every two (2) minutes in a single video! All it's doing is causing more stress, it's so annoying! I don't mind a couple of ads before the video starts or after it ends, but consistent ad breaks during the video is ridiculous. Because of this I'm going to have to stop using YouTube until it gets fixed. And I cannot afford paying for ad free.

    Lately I've been having a lot of issues with the app when it comes to playing videos Fullscreen. Normally in could play a video and have it overlap while I would do other things, but lately when I try to do other stuff, I go back to the video and it's all scrunched up at the top of my screen with a black screen underneath. And I can't exit out of the video or search without closing the app altogether.

    By Derek Wood
    Used to use regularly but it's just full of ads now. They'll play a short one that you can't skip followed by a longer one that you may or may not be able to skip. Then during the video, every 2-3 minutes this will repeat. Edit: changed to 1 star. During a 3 minute video, I was just subjected to the same unskippable Apple ad 4 times. It's getting more and more excessive

  • 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.
  • UTube rating Feb 11, 2022

    My number 1 amount of viewing. Great series especially British. Do wish they stayed current and put in Series 1- ?? And programs. Call the midwife has been on for yrs in Britain. We don’t have all. Also Dr Martin, same with midsummer murders. So wish bodyguard went on . Love to watch the Royal family, I’m a transplanted Canadian, with a very British Mom. Love the music and video of concerts. I find Gary Barlow concerts and Take That really zippy and upbeat. Loved Boyzone, westlife. I could go on and on. The life with malamutes, Shepa, Penny the cat are a doze of fun. Shepa shows the beautiful British countryside. Oh my, escape to the country, is stunning. What great adverts for Britain. Enough, PS , I’m 74 and housebound much of the time. I found all music because 3 yrs ago Christmas my son suggested I watch/ listen to Last Christmas video. It brought back such good memories of Christmas in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. From there other British music and Michael McIntre such fun, Miranda. Oh my I’m rattling. Thank you U Tube Delaware D’s
  • 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.
  • Some problems Jun 23, 2021

    By Technoblade 2.0
    First off, I love this app. It’s easy to use and a great time-killer; but there is some problems that are annoying. First off, I hate the fact that you get forced to sit through 20 second ads without skipping, every five minutes. And it’s always the same as for me, and I’ve heard that the creators did this on PURPOSE to literally force people to use the Premium edition. Second off, there isn’t a ad timer on my phone that is like “Ads is 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…” but instead the ad just comes out of nowhere. Lastly, there is a weird bug that it something like a PC isn’t updated or the app isn’t correctly updated, Restricted Mode is stuck on and I can’t turn it off saying it’s enforced by an “administrator” and I don’t have an administrator. I hate giving bad reviews, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Please fix these I love this app just there is a few things I don’t like.
  • Scary video’s 😱😰 Feb 23, 2021

    By Norah05
    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 😱!

    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.
  • Some issues with the latest update Dec 8, 2017

    By Reality Macro
    I use this app probably more than any other app on my iPhone. For the most part it’s really great, but not without flaws. Most of the videos displayed in the Home screen no longer show the video length timestamp in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail which is really irritating. It looks like all other views in the app show the timestamp, so hopefully it’s a bug that’s fixed ASAP. A couple random videos in the Home list show the timestamp while the other 95% do not, which makes no sense. Sometimes the video rotation gets stuck in landscape and will not revert back to portrait view, only the opposite landscape view. This has been a problem for a few months now, and the only way to fix it is to force quit the app. This is quite irritating. Finally, a good addition but extremely overdue feature is the ability to sort the Watch Later playlist. FINALLY this utterly BASIC feature exists. I have no idea why the Watch Later playlist worked so differently than regular playlists for so long, but that’s fixed now. The best addition from a few months ago was the feature of double-tapping to rewind and fast forward. Every video player needs this. It’s incredibly user friendly. It’s way better than the rudimentary 15-second skip buttons that many players now have.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Too many ads and too long Apr 29, 2022

    By Kokoemo
    I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.
  • 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
  • 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 !
  • Removing Dislikes Was a Mistake Jan 13, 2022

    By B-Rush12
    Let me just say that this is my favorite media platform, and the only social media app (or maybe more accurately, social media adjacent) that I still have on my phone aside from Twitch, Discord, Snapchat, and FB Messenger…and that’s it. And I say this because I want the app to be the best that it can possibly be, and being the best implies that the app has integrity. In my opinion, removing the ability to see the number of dislikes on a video is harmful and a major blow to this platform’s integrity. The like-to-dislike ratio was so often used as a quick eye test and a tool to judge a content creator’s credibility and the amount of effort and value that went into the production of any particular video. Removing this feature takes away the viewer’s ability to relay to future viewers whether or not that the content in the video, or the creator who made the video, was valuable/credible enough to consider watching their content. I hope this gets reverted in the near future.

    Use this app all the time, more than Netflix, Hulu, or any other service. But suddenly my phone will unlink from my chromecast and I'll lose my whole queue which started recently and is very sporadic. On top of that I no longer have the option to change playback speed, which is a very important feature for me when watching educational videos. Very unhappy with the changes that are happening and the problems I've been experiencing and I can't even put all my issues in 1 review for character limit
  • Concerned about censorship and other issues. Apr 9, 2022

    By Group1-OG
    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.
  • 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.

    The app works super well all of the times and the layout is almost perfect. The only two problems I have is that you can no longer sort videos by earliest uploads, and it's a puzzle to find the trending page. I know neither are the most important thing ever but I value them and I used to frequently use them, up until the latest update removed the feature to sort videos by earliest upload.
  • 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.

    Stop messing with the app. When I hit my back button, it puts my phone in portrait mode no matter what. Now in order to close out a video, I have to hit back, rotate my phone 90°, minimize the video, and hit the 'X'. Before all I had to do was hit the back button and click the 'X'. Does this somehow improve your view count? It certainly isn't more convenient. Stop meddling for the sake of meddling.
  • Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPads Mar 2, 2022

    By Fantaapp
    I 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…
  • 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.

  • 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!

    First of all, I experience frequent crashes. It starts to lag, then it crashes to the homescreen. Also, the resolution switcher used to be great. Now I need to do extra taps to get to where I need to go for actual high quality, not 480p, but 1440p. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I prefer the old layout. I also experience frequent lagging and crashes, despite the fact that I have a snapdragon 888.
  • Bring Back Downvotes May 12, 2022

    By hgighjb
    Please 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.

    This app is a necessary evil to use, but it doesn't help that it keeps degrading. Ads have become more prevalent and aggressive, especially first-party ads for premium accounts and YouTube Shorts, both of which are wastes of time and money. The interface is poorly designed and makes navigation unnecessarily difficult while it fills your screen with "suggestions". On a positive note, all this mess keeps you from overusing the app since you'll want to close it as soon as possible.

But now it won't let me. Every time I click on settings under a YouTube video to change the quality, it goes blank sometimes. It also keeps freezing. It's a miracle I get through a whole video.

  • Are they actually fixing bugs as they claim? May 18, 2022

    By Anime Favorite
    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.

    Dunno why, but recently my phone keeps telling me youtube has stopped working...over, and over again. I cannot stop notifications. Also, sometimes the ads continue running audio while youtube selection is showing, forcing you to hear 2 things at once, and sometimes cannot make it stop unless I turn off my phone. The sheer number of ads is massive...the frequency of them makes me stop watching much of what I wanted to see. I would give one star, but gave it two simply because I still use it.

    Despite having my quality settings to always be at the highest it can, the videos always start with either 480p or 720p when 1080p is available so I have to manually change it. Not only that, but the mass amount of ads recently (in some cases, I've had 3 unskippable ads, some are only 5 minutes apart for some videos) it can get really frustrating, especially when I'm trying to relax to orchestral music. I'm chilling then all the sudden my ears are blasted with annoying hip hop music.

    A great app, but it just can't stay connected to a TV. Make sure you save any queue of videos to a playlist, because your phone will disconnect from the TV and when you try to reconnect, your queue gets wiped out. It is disappointing that this can't/won't get fixed, I've been using this app for probably 5 years and the bug remains. I actually think it is worse than ever now. At this point I can't even keep the same queue on my phone as in my TV for a full fifteen minutes.

    Like a lot of people have said, the app has been going downhill. A lot of the times, it will freeze my video when I do a simple actions such as clicking on the channel or going into the comments. Then, THE MENU lags and bhffers as well, which is mind-blowing. And I don't even have a half-bad device either, which is the S20. The app really needs optimization. Also, why do you have to click an "X" to remove the UI of the video? It was fine as it was. It's kinda stupid.

    I like to watch YouTube to help me relax and de-stress after a long day, but lately, there have been CONSTANT ads! There will be ads every two (2) minutes in a single video! All it's doing is causing more stress, it's so annoying! I don't mind a couple of ads before the video starts or after it ends, but consistent ad breaks during the video is ridiculous. Because of this I'm going to have to stop using YouTube until it gets fixed. And I cannot afford paying for ad free.

Then during the video, every 2-3 minutes this will repeat. Edit: changed to 1 star. During a 3 minute video, I was just subjected to the same unskippable Apple ad 4 times.

    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!

    There have been multiple app breaking bugs for the better part of 2 weeks now. If I close out the app for any decent amount of time (30 minutes or so) when I return it will seem completely fine until I click on a video and then it just freezes to the point where I can't even close the app without turning my phone off, usually after around 3-5 minutes it will fix itself. Now I'm seeing a new bug where I'm not able to scroll down to see other videos while a video is playing. Please fix this.

    I love only being able to use the app because the website forces you to use the app. If you want to check the play list you better hide it before you go full screen because if you do. It shows up on the right side and makes it so you can't fast forward. And the x that hides it in one veiw ends the play list in full screen. This wouldn't be so bad if all the new vertical ads didn't play my video in the worng orientation when they finished .

    If it wasn't for the fact that it keeps crashing on me, freezes every 3 second after I use it for like 30 minutes I have to exit, removing most popular feature, then it would be a 5 star. I have to give it 1 star cause I can't stand with these problems I have to deal with every day. Also, I didn't forget that everytime I finished watching a video and I start watching another one, it sometimes collides to the video I watch and sometimes it doesn't come off.

    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!

    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.
