  • Good app but... Sep 21, 2019

    By Hdudujebd
    So I love this app. I’m on here all the time. It’s got me through some tough times. I know that sounds cheesy but it’s true. Anyway, it’s kind of stupid how you can’t make the kind of content you want without getting a penalty. If the person in the video says a bad word it’s demonetized and I think that’s horrible. Maybe instead of that you could just flag the video so that kids know not to watch it. Or make a rating system so that parents can control the things their kids watch. Kind of like Netflix. But honestly bad words aren’t the end of the world. They would be in the pg13 section. Also I was fine with one ad per video but this is just annoying. Because you can only skip both ads if the first one is skippable. Also when does it end? Are y’all gonna keep going any maybe put in 3 ads? Maybe 4? Then we would be better off just watching regular tv I guess.

    I don't know what's going on but for some reason YouTube has started to delete some of my playlists. I can add things inside them but I can't find them anywhere which is really annoying. It deletes at a certain number for some reason and I have important videos and videos I've been meaining to watch for a long time that have now suddenly vanished. Fix this please.

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

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

  • Pure awesomeness but... Jun 28, 2018

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

  • 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.

    The recent update broke YouTube. I see a lot of people having the same problem with not being able to open the YouTube app. So far the only thing I've found is to go into the settings for YouTube and clear data but you have to redo it every time you want to open the app again. Something especially weird is that going to the setting in YouTube and pressing general will make the app freeze and you'll have to redo it again.

  • Sensors too many videos May 26, 2020

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

  • Moving the comment section back May 13, 2020

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

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

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

  • Garbage on iPad Aug 16, 2019

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

  • What the- Jul 20, 2020

    By DeviledEggsareGross
    Everything is just fine, except for a few details, this may just be for me, I don't know. I am unable to watch certain videos because restricted mode is on, I assure you I checked and turned it off on multiple occasions. The other thing is that when I search for a video to watch, instead of the video showing up, I see movies, ads, channels, and other completely unrelated things to my search. This makes no sense to me, I have never had a problem with this in the past, and it has started happening fairly recently. I have checked here in the app store, maybe to update it, but I can't. I am confused about why this is happening to me, and if possible if you could fix this. If anyone else has had trouble with this, and knows how to fix this, please let me know. By the way, this is my first time making a review, it seems a little formal (Not really).

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

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

  • One major bug Oct 15, 2018

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

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

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

  • It Kills My Phone Jan 18, 2019

    By urboyHamada
    I love the app, it is probably the mist used app on my phone, but the app absolutely obliterate my phone in performance. When I’m watching a video and want to swipe down to close the video the app freezes but the audio of the vid is still working, I can here the vid. At this point my phone is destroyed, I close my phone from the side button but the vid audio is still on, I can here what is said, I keep punching my phone from the back, then after a minute of frustration my phone starts lagging, it’s screen opens then closes. At this point I restart my phone during the lag. This problem never stops, even after making the latest updates, but what is even weird is the description of every update is about bug fixes and performance being better. Please make something happen. By the way, my phone is iPhone 6 Plus.

  • Strange status Bar glitch Mar 31, 2018

    By The One And Only The Prodigy!
    Hi there… This app is great… But there is one problem… there is a strange status bar bug… lets say you are watching a video… And you want to check the time The time doesn't change… If you check the status bar while watching a video for example… Let's say I play a video that is 15 minutes long… At 9:31 AM and when that video is finished… It's already 9:47 AM unless… You exit out the video… The time still says 9:31 AM it'll be 5 o'clock in the afternoon and the status bar would still say 9:31 AM it's like… The clock got stuck The time doesn't change… Unless you restart the app… Or exit out the video also… Nothing in the status bar changes including the battery level The only way to see the correct time and all of the other information displayed you have to exit out the video And… For the iPad version if you select add to bye accident there is no cancel button it's been like that for three years please fix those issues… There really annoying

  • Needs Some Improvements Jan 13, 2018

    By Rose Mairi
    For the most part, this app works really well, but sometimes after a video ends while I have it on full screen, it freezes and stays black for a few seconds, which is a little odd. The only other problem I have is that when I pause a video to read something and have to tap the vid to get the white pause symbols out of the way, it glitches if I tap it twice too fast and the symbols freeze for a few seconds, which is aggravating and has been happening for a few months now. I’d really appreciate it if you guys could fix these two small issues. Other then that, everything else is great. Update: It doesn’t seem like any of the problems I mentioned have been fixed, as they’re still happening. Please fix those issues. Also, for some reason, this app just now closed on me and my phone turned off and immediately turned back on. I’m assuming it has something to do with the app itself. If so, please fix that problem.

  • Great app! Almost perfect Jun 23, 2019

    By EragonMax1995
    Like I said in the title, this app is soooo amazing! I have found so many funny videos, video game guides, music videos, etc, on here. But there’s only one problem and I believe it’s a bug. Sometimes I like to look and see what other videos are on here that are recommended for me, but I also like to watch videos or just listen to videos while I’m doin this, but after I add like maybe 4-5 videos to my certain playlists, the app just crashes on me. Please fix this cause it’s very annoying when it happens and I’d like to be able to continue finding new videos to watch while I’m also watchin another video at the time. If y’all fix that issue, there’s only one addition that I’d suggest you made to the app: a side button in the app that lets you see where your favorite YouTuber has commented or liked one of your comments on their video. If you can add that and fix the issue, this app will be perfect. Hope you’ll listen to my ideas.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Why change the 3 dots button???? Aug 31, 2018

    By silver.&.silent
    I would use this ALL the time to state if a video is not interesting or if I want to save for later. Now it is super small and you have to hold it down for that same menu to come up, turning an action that used to take no time at all into a frustrating and time consuming experience. If you tap on the three dots it just plays the video, what sense does that make if I’m trying to access the menu. This change happened without me even updating the app itself. Please change this back, there was no reason to do that. Also when a video finishes playing the next recommended videos pop up on the bottom of the screen making it hard to access the full screen button, so when I am trying to go in or out of full screen I almost always inadvertently press another video and then have to go all the way back out to get to what I was watching. Does anyone actually test these “features” before they are pushed out? ETA I just updated the app on my iPad and now the search doesn’t work, this is like a horrible joke. Rollback this update I can’t find anything useful about it.

Even more so now if you don't live in America you can't watch anything because "the content is not available in your country". SO WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR IT ANYWAY?????

    This version has an issue. When I tap to rewind for 10 seconds or more, the video gets started all over again. This way, I'm bound to watch any video from beginning. This happens with downloaded videos as well.The same Happens even when I want to watch any mid part of the video. Please ractify this bug. It's really annoying.
