  • It was fine when everything wasn’t for kids Nov 12, 2020

    By Djpartypon3
    Don’t get me wrong I understand that some cartoons are meant for children but when you notice that there are animated adult content that’s being counted as being for kids too. I watch adult animated shows and I sometimes like to add a comment but I can’t do that anymore because apparently it’s for kids. The comment section is where you can post whatever you want but if you feel you wanna speak your mind about something then that’s okay. The most annoying thing about this is, that’s not even the worst part about it. I get ads that are about toys or whatever even though I’m watching something that has nothing to do with what I’m watching. Anyway, another problem that I have is that the loading takes awhile even if it’s connected it takes awhile and then it crashes. Overall it’s still a good app I just think it still needs some more adjustments and I still miss the way it used to be.

    Nobody will disagree that it's great to be able to select and copy a comment or a part of it in order to translate or to search meaning of selected text or a word. Developers of this app obviously do not recognise the value of that and it is annoying when tapping + holding down on a comment for a context menu to pop, it only allows to reply or to report it, no other options, not like those mentioned above . FB has language autodetect translating comments in a click, why can't YouTube do it too

  • 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.

    YouTube is an okay platform. But unfortunately, the app is a bit buggy at times. Here are a couple that annoy me; Sometimes, when I save a video to a playlist, and check what playlist it saved to afterwards, the [✔] disappears from whatever playlist the video saved to. But then, when I actually browse the playlist, the video is actually there. Also, when I change the playback speed on a video, the whole app freezes up. This never happened until a few months ago. I hope these bugs get fixed.

  • Two Issues with this app Feb 15, 2021

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

    I would give this app 5 stars if there wasn't too many adverts. It's making me hate adverts now and for some unknown reason I can't personalize my ads on Google, including YouTube!! And most of these ads are inappropriate and I can't report them! This is extremely disappointing Google. This is really putting me off on watching on this app now. Do any customers agree with me?😠😡

I tried to check my screen timeout setting and eveything else, the solution was to downgrade it to 15.44.33 version. There is an issue especially with samsung devices.

    And it's gotten worse. Now I can't even uninstall the app without it giving me an error. Because YouTube doesn't work with its updates, I cannot use the app. This is annoying as I use YouTube quite a lot. But there are always alternatives and I think I might try on of them. Duck duck go for example. And for anyone who's reading this, YouTube isn't a waste of time, but if it stops working use something else because like hell the developers will fix the issue.

    Awful app. Now I have notifications that the is an update but it won't actually update. There's more ads and click throughs to contend with. It's no longer worth using. Now with the added bonus of not being able to read comments or click the drop down to view video info. Who actually programs this rubbish? I think could do a better job with a blindfold and boxing gloves on.

    I use YouTube for all my questions: how do I make this, why does that happen, etc.... Mainly, I use YouTube for music, for finding "that" song. This is a great place to go because I will actually find the song I'm wanting to hear with just a few words. In my online account, I can save and/or download anything, watch videos, I have my favorite songs saved and at any time I can go back thru my history to find any past questions, songs, etc..

  • 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.

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

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

    Other than the ads I can't find anything wrong with youtube, as long as you have good service the quality is great and you can find almost anything you want to watch on there. It doesn't have enough credit for role it could play in someone's life eg. You could be looking for a great game or console and you could find all sorts of reviews. Great app, totally underrated.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Without a doubt, youtube is the best video sharing platform but I have a few problems with the app. Firstly, the new update for the dislike button. I don't enjoy the fact that the dislike number is private, there should be an option for individual creators to keep it private. Secondly, videos are freezing half way. The sound will be there and I will be able to scroll and stuff but the video will be frozen. I will he having to rewind the video again. Also the app crashes when I play playlists.

  • Good app but advertisement overload Sep 16, 2020

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

  • So many problems Jul 19, 2020

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

    For some reason the app has started going to the lock screen if I haven't touched the screen with in a couple of minutes. I know this is a setting in the phone if you are inactive for a couple of minutes to go-to the lock screen but most video apps won't do this given they know you are watching a video. Idk why youtube decided to not do this anymore.

  • Sensors too many videos May 26, 2020

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

    I just had to watch TWO ads in a row for a 45-second video. This is getting absolutely ridiculous. Listen, I get that creators need a source of revenue. But YT should at least realize that a 30 second ad for a 45 second video is a BAD IDEA. These days I mostly use YT on my PC because at least there I have an ad blocker. And now a million and one features are blocked via paywall, when I distinctly remember them being available for free some years ago. It's not fun to use this platform anymore.

  • The End Feb 21, 2021

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