Can’t block Trump?
by DBHme on 2017/11/19 01:12
Why does this app keep sending me push notifications recommending videos from Trump’s re-election campaign? Even when I have the account blocked? That’s messed-up, guys. Real creepy. Congrats, I’m forced to turn off notifications from this app. If this keeps up, I’m deleting the app. Thanks for the extra reminder that a fascist gangster has hijacked our government. Just what everyone needs in their life.
Keeps on playing after minimize on iOS
by Navi and kj on 2017/11/19 01:03
Why you contents are still playing after you exit like pushing home button it suppose pause or something with recent update with iOS it is doing it ever since. Any possible fix. Every time I have stop the app completely in order stop its playback. Otherwise I will keep hearing what I was playing.
Freezing
by SanDiegoSuperChargers on 2017/11/19 01:01
Sometimes when I’m in fully screen and press pause and then press play, sound will play but the screen will freeze up and then u have to restart he app. His is on an iPhone
Love it but some things need to be fixed.......
by The Foosa on 2017/11/19 00:24
I really like all the videos load really quickly. And you can video for your own channel off of your phone or anything like that. But I mostly use YouTube to listen to nightcore and music. But when I add it to a playlist I goes straight to the bottom of the list. I remembered before that I could move around the playlist how ever I like but I’m not sure if you’ll ever bring that back. I would also like to add can you listen to whatever you were listening to after you exit the app like Pandora? That would be amazing! I could actually listen to the music I like with knowing what’s coming on next unlike other apps!! Otherwise I really like how you made the app work.😁😁
Not loading Hi def! Too much buffering!

About YouTube Red...
by Kia214 on 2017/11/18 23:45
I’m not getting all alerts when people respond to my comments. Sometimes the video gets stuck in a corner when in landscape. You guys should offer 3 different packages with YouTube Red: 1) exclusive YouTube Red content, music stream, ad free and background play; 2) unlimited music streaming only; and 3) background play only. YouTube Red is good in theory but the fact of the matter is I pay $5 for Apple Music- I do not need another music streaming subscription. I also do not care about YouTube Red exclusive content. I hate ads, but they’re not the end of the world. THE ONLY APPEALING THING TO ME ABOUT YOUTUBE RED IS BACKGROUND PLAY! I would love to listen to my “podcasts” as I’m scrolling down Twitter. I hate having to pick between both platforms. Please consider! PS - on Amazon Fire, I’m able to make a “queue”. We should also have that ability on the mobile app into addition to auto play. We should also be able to sort our “to watch play list” in multiple orders. And give us a “live alerts” only bell alert option!
pretty much the dumbest devs ever
by HerbS2urnerves on 2017/11/18 23:41
if youtube app was a videogame it would be dead by now. these devs are excruciatingly stupid. so if you are writing a comment while the current video is finished and autoplay starts the next video than you cant stop writing the comment. the only way to regain any control over the app after that is to force close it. this is what they do with the hundreds of millions they make off youtube. they buy drugs and get high. as opposed to actually making a working product.
GO BACK
by Violet Ink on 2017/11/18 23:21
WTH YouTube fix the search engine on the app it was easier to just swipe left to look through categories! And if you were gonna do that! MAKE A CHECK MARK APPEAR SO I KNOW I SELECTED IT PLEASE. PLEASE MAKE THE SEARCH ENGINE NORMAL AGAIN!

Random Glitches
by isthatkimmi on 2017/11/18 21:45
The app isn’t the worst BUT some of the controls don’t work when connected to chromecast. The volume control, play/pause buttons and scrolling back or forth to a certain time in the videos don’t work half the time when I’m using the app.
Still awful, big surprise.
by Taz6202 on 2017/11/18 21:37
As if having a ton a crap channels thrown at you wasn’t bad enough now there making it so the good content creators are leaving. I hope whoever is in charge of this tire fire gets let go. Also I don’t care about your crap live channels that have one person watching them, there garbage. Thanks for pushing away all the good content creators. I’m sure twitch is super excited that you keep shooting yourself in the foot. GG!

Bug unfixed for years
by Riverpancake on 2017/11/18 18:50
There has been this one bug that YouTube has never fixed and has always been present as long as I can remember. Whenever you turn your phone sideways the orientation of user interface remains as though your phone is still upright and your stuck with half of a video in the bottom corner of your screen. Either they’re too lazy to fix or they don’t know how. I suggest looking into this issue with a little more effort, Thanks.
Help Please.

A Suspicious Bug
by Sarah Civil on 2017/11/18 18:08
I hate ads, so whenever I see one (whether I support the content creator or not) I will click skip ad the chance I get. Buuuuut... suspiciously some of the advertisements will say I can skip them but when I go to click "skip ad" nothing happens. I mean NOTHING, I can't close the video, minimize the app or even lock my phone. I'm just stuck in purgatory while I have to watch another dumb mayonnaise commercial. However as soon as the ad is over my video starts playing again. Look YouTube if you want to make the ad required just do that, don't freeze my phone while a skippable ad is playing and make it look like my phone's fault. This is happening a lot too. Twelve times was enough to write a review about your app. Either it is a 'bug' and requires attention or it's not and you're freezing my phone to make me watch the seventeenth Stranger Things commercial I've seen. Until then I encourage people who encounter this bug to leave a review as well.
Wrongfully Subscribed
by Actually Everyone on 2017/11/18 17:59
I definitely never subscribed to Warner Bros or Conan. Not sure why you keep screwing with us, but could you stop? Users and creators are finding huge faults with the platform and you just keep adding more.

Overall, this is a fantastic app! But... I’ve had this problem recently that when I’m on a video the recommended videos won’t show up at all. It’ll say I’m in offline mode but I’m not. Please fix this
it works fine but....
by Melito 19 on 2017/11/18 17:03
the app is nicely laid out for an iphone 10 user in my opinion but whenever I’m watching a video at any given time the video stops working and the audio keeps going without the video playback i have to put my phone to sleep and open youtube again so it can correctly work. please fix its really annoying its happening more then often. thanks.
Cellular Quality
by XxXGummyBearXxX on 2017/11/18 16:59
I used to be able to watch videos using my phones data and change the video quality and now I can't? I was using YouTube a lot more since then but now I guess I'm stuck only using it with wifi. Thanks. Also thanks on making the app worse every time it’s updated. Nothing is ever fixed anymore. Gets annoying pausing a video and have the app freeze. Video just pausing and trying to load when it was already running smooth. Always got to fix apps for the new phones and screws over everyone who doesn’t have one. That’s how Apple is sadly.

I use this app all the time for watching great, high quality videos. I would like it if you tapped on the screen and you could see the time instead of going into small screen to see the time and then go back to large screen. All in all, this app is one of my favorites.

by Hellraiser7269 on 2017/11/18 13:28
YouTube is great as long as YouTube agrees with you . For those of us however, that see the world for what it really is view YouTube as tool being used by google to manipulate how you view truth perhaps even change your viewpoints. Not a single person should fall for this utter nonsense and propaganda on mainstream news . And YouTube should not be editing content creators works because they disagree with said propaganda This is the age of great deception. We are Witnessing the modern day book burning on a digital landscape .

Cracking Noises
by n_alvarez2007 on 2017/11/18 08:55
Don’t know what Google did here but as of this morning, seems like there is a very distinct cracking noise coming from every video on my iPhone 8 Plus. This coming after an update which should have addressed the abysmal battery drain coming from the app. Not a fan Google! Quit nerfing your competition’s platform! It’s hostile to consumers and bad business for you.
Videos do not play after searching

Video results do not play the results when you select the video results from any search on iPad Pro 2nd generation, 10.5 inches. Note this has started happening from the last YouTube update app. iPad is running the latest iOS version. Please do the needful to fix it

by spiderpopstar youtube on 2017/11/18 08:32
I like how you can make your own channel to get popular. It's cool. I also like that you can listen to your favorite singers (Eminem), and watch tutorials,makeup,vlogs,adventures,gaming,horror,etc. The possibilities are limitless! Highly recommended!

Help please👌🏻
by Tatelee on 2017/11/18 04:03
So the app is great. I use it a lot. For entertainment and for learning about science and how to do stuff, anyway. I’ve recently had the problem when I’m watching a video normally a long video but will also happen to shorter videos, it will just like pause and show the loading circle in the middle of the screen right in the middle of a video and skip a few seconds and resume playing and this will happen quite a few times during a video. Please help fix this small yet annoying bug, besides that the app runs great. Keep up the good work
Great but one big problem!
by Azetlor246 on 2017/11/18 03:59

-pros and cons
by Cardology on 2017/11/18 03:49
Update: downgrading from two to one star now that the speaker is crackling only in this app.. sound quality is so bad i have to result to playing youtube through safari 🙄 Pros -plays youtube videos -finally added a playback speed option Cons -No feature to play audio.. this was basic feature in many youtube player apps before they all got taken down. -the only app that i have that does not display the clock at the top of the screen so you have to leave the video to see time. -No option for playback when you leave the app, so you can’t listen to music and play a game on your phone at the same time. -cannot manually select playback quality while using cell data

by Kondor999 on 2017/11/18 03:11
Last update results in really annoying sound glitches when using YT app. The phone itself is fine. Watching YT via browser works without any issues (sound is fine). All other apps have normal sound. This is specific to the YT app. Lots of people complaining. C’mon - please test this stuff (iPhone 8 here) before deploying.
Auditory quality
by Platter123987 on 2017/11/18 03:11
There are suddenly little ticks in the middle of my videos cutting off sound. It happens often and only effects YouTube so I don’t know if it’s my phone or the app, but I’m going to assume it’s the app. You need to fix this bug
POPPING/CRACKLING SOUND
by JD iz kool on 2017/11/18 03:10

Sound is fine from music app, youtube on safari, soundcloud, etc. i have iphone 8 and all apps and software is up to date. please fix asap it makes me want to not use the app at all, it’s so annoying it happens about every 1/2 second.
SUCH CRACKLE
by Tristin Filsinger on 2017/11/18 03:10
Something is making the audio crackle when a play sound aloud please fix
Speaker clicking
by II C LAMP II on 2017/11/18 03:07
At first I thought this was my phone but when I watch videos on the YouTube app my speakers keep making a clicking/popping sound constantly. Watching videos outside of the app it doesn’t make that sound.
Please please
by CastleNovaBlue on 2017/11/18 03:07
The YouTube app is now crackling when you play it on loud. And it really makes me:(
Good, but needs a lot of improvements
by Alexander Mayeux on 2017/11/13 02:47
I use this app all the time and for the most part it works really well! The videos load up fairly quickly and they can be watched without any trouble when watching in a high resolution. And in its simplest form, that’s it! It works well! However, there are some bugs and some flaws that need to be fixed. While the videos are watchable, at times it will freeze and the app will just crash. This can get really annoying when you’re watching something and then all of a sudden it just crashes on you. Thankfully, once you head back into the app, it will let you start off from where you were. But there is one last flaw that really should be fixed, connecting to the TV. While videos do work well on the TV, half of the time I’ll be watching a video, and then all of a sudden I may accidentally tap the icon to connect to the TV and then it will just connect. You can exit out of it, but sometimes I won’t notice and it will connect to my TV without me even knowing. And I feel like when you tap on the icon, it should say “Are you sure that you want to connect to this TV?” And then you could either tap Yes or No, instead of it just automatically connecting with very little time to cancel the operation. Other than these though, the app isn’t all that bad and I would recommend it, as long as the flaws don’t mess with your time watching videos, then it is a passable app.
This thing is unbelievably stupid
by Dinosaurology on 2017/11/08 17:12
I used to think that perhaps you were going in the correct direction, but it seems that I was proven wrong by the very humans that created this thing. The only positives are that I can watch videos and I have the ability to go into the history and either rewatch something or remove something. The negatives however, are atrocious, it includes, videos not included in my subscription feed ( I almost didn’t know of one of my favorite Drawfee videos, as well as a Draw With Jazza video), the recommendations are useless, if I want to watch trending videos, I will go to trending, but the recommendations seem to “think” I want them in my recommendations. It constantly recommends political videos, annoying pop songs, idiots whining about things that do not exist, and that Netflix show “Stranger Things”( Well, I am perfectly fine with the last one even though I know almost nothing about “Stranger Things”, which from the two videos I watched about it, it reminds me of “The Goonies”). There is another type of video that gets recommended to me, but “people” will very likely get offended. There is this bug that causes that triangle thing to appear when I hold my iPod horizontally, though it is supposed to only appear when holding it vertically, once that happens I have to close the application. Occasionally this thing acts as if I have no WiFi signal, though everything else that requires a signal works fine.
Needs a new "Tell us why" option
by MichaelKr4 on 2017/10/24 00:24
I think I MIGHT have watched a gaming livestream ONCE. Now YouTube's algorithms seem to think that gaming livestreams are my favorite thing in the world. It doesn't matter how many times I click "not interested" to remove them from my feed, every time I refresh I have 10-12 new GTA V, World of Warcraft, and other random gaming livestreams in my feed. If I click the "tell us why" option, I have three options: already watched the video; don't like the video; not interested in the channel. Any of those options only seem to suggest to the algorithm that I just want to watch gaming livestreams from a DIFFERENT channel. No. I. Do. Not. Want. To. Watch. ANY. Gaming. Livestreams. If I ever decide that I do, I know how to type, "please show me a gaming livestream from some random person I don't care about" in the search bar. The video feed is already weak and biased towards view numbers on this app. But the constant livestreams in my feed that I couldn't possibly care less about have found a way to make it even worse. How about putting some content from channels I actually subscribe to in my feed? Crazy, I know. I mean, literally every other video in my feed is a GTA V livestream. I don't see how it benefits your business model to constantly "suggest" videos I have absolutely NO intention of watching or generating ad revenue for.
Two bugs you really need to fix (sorry for this being WAY to long)
by Yuuriip on 2017/10/11 22:56
Alright, I'm giving this four stars I would've put five but these two bugs have bin going on for awhile and it's annoying me. 1.when I'm watching I video I want to get out of full screen and all of a sudden it switches me back into full screen and it wouldn't let me leave it this has been going far to long and it's getting annoying 2.Now this one hasn't been going for a long time but this is getting in my nerves when I type a comment on a video and then I think to myself *nah I shouldn't type that* so I tap the screen to get out of the comment and it shows the keyboard this is confusing the way I'm typing this but let me explain for people reading, for iPhones, iPads and tablets you have to tap on your screen to get out of your comment but of course people may have done that by mistake and then they have to type it all again so it tells *do you want discard your comment or keep typing* simple but NOW when I want to get out of the comment the thing shows BUT MY KEYBOARD DOESNT DISAPPEAR AMD IT BLOCKS THE *do you want to discard the comment or keep typing* SO THEM I HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE APP SO I CAN WATCH A DIFFERENT VIDEO THIS IS SUPER ANNOYING
Horrible example of what a monopoly can get away with
by G17_____ on 2017/11/14 10:28
This application is absolutely horrible. Even when no videos are displayed on the device, rather the app is used another device such as Roku or Chromecast this app drains the battery like no other! Even with this constant operation, draining the battery, the app often loses the sync with the controlled device. Battery drain continues even if app disconnects from the controller device. Furthermore, when there is a new release with supposedly bug fixes - the description of the fixes is typically an insult to users intelligence, with statements like “make world a better place” or such. Which barely passes as amusing once but is extremely annoying when repeated time after time in different forms. Had the app been developed by anyone smaller than Google (or one of the big 5), it would’ve been kicked out of the App Store. The development team’s level is very poor. But then, being a monopoly Google can get away with anything. Even Apple is afraid to put this substandard and sloppy team in place.
This app is part of why I don't own a Google phone
by SirNickity on 2017/11/04 19:21
Google's software quality is amazingly bad. For a company that has literally innovated the Internet up to where it is today, they really drop the ball on simple things. Like proper handling of screen rotation. (Has anyone even had this problem in ANY other mobile app? I haven't. Yet it has plagued YT for years.) Or that one bug where video would restart from the beginning while audio kept going. (Thankfully that seems to be fixed now, but it was a problem for way too long.) With the latest update, YT is now able to turn my phone into a hand warmer. 30 min of video drained a quarter of my battery life. Well that's new. I've got to learn not to update this app anymore when I finally run across a version that works. Or, more accurately, when the bugs it has don't affect me enough to care. Get your $@!# together, Google. "It compiles" is not QA.
IDK
by KCM03 on 2017/09/30 06:49
Update causes app to no longer recognize Apple lightening digital a/v adapter. Now my phone will only do screen mirroring (it used to automatically switch it to AirPlay mode), which I personally would not mind, except that for some reason, i can no longer play a playlist if I am using my adapter. The app will play one video and then stop, even though I am supposed to be playing a playlist. I am not talking about auto play. I am referring to a playlist. And auto play does not work with playlists — because it is a playlist. I used to be able to plug in my adapter, shuffle a playlist and go on about my day with my phone playing video after video. Now, I use my adapter and then have to run back to my phone every time a video ends. Not good —not happy. This is not an IOS issue because it was doing this before I updated. In fact, I updated my phone because I thought it would resolve the problem. I keep trying to find solutions, but nothing has corrected something that was not an issue until now.
Great but major bugs...
by Csrgamingfan on 2017/09/15 09:43
When I play a video after a few seconds it says “Something went wrong please try again" and that really annoys me because the video starts for the beginning again so if you have any answers please let me know! Over all AMAZING!❤️❤️❤️ Edit: okay there are a lot of bugs in the latest update it keeps saying “something went wrong please try again" and I can't play any video because of that HUGE ANNOYING BUG! The videos don't “stay" I mean that when I leave the page open for a few minutes it just goes away! These bugs really annoy me and I would like you to fix them please...I can't watch my daily videos and it's just annoying! It gets so annoying that I quit watching videos and play boring games! So I would love it if you fix theses major and huge bugs...thanks if you do!❤️❤️❤️❤️
recommendations are stupid.
by IrisKat:3 on 2017/11/16 01:20
I watched two vine compilations and ONE AlbertsStuff video. Now, my recommendations are piled with dead vines and Roblox videos. There’s not even videos from my subscriptions, which is just dumb, I should say. I always click “I am uninterested” but they never get deleted. Do you people even listen to the reviews? You still have horrible reviews from two years ago. You keep adding new, unnecessary stuff, yet you guys don’t fix the vital issues that were probably there from 2 years ago. I hate to support this app but this is the only video app I prefer to watch from, because it’s the most popular, unfortunately. Don’t expect me to buy any apps or merch from this company until you get more satisfied customers. I only gave you two stars because I feel bad for all of you and your incompetence. Once you fix these stupid bugs I will gladly give you 5 stars. Stop adding unneeded features and LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE THAT GIVE YOU MONEY.
It is amazing
by Pickschu Slayer10 on 2017/11/01 01:43
You could watch everything that you want to watch on here but there is one thing I want y'all to do I want y'all to make a video for season one two and three of the flash it would be cool if someone could make a video one the seasons of flash I am still trying to catch up on the season I am going to be honest I haven't even finished the second season a true flash fan would be done with the second season but I started watching it about a month ago and I am still not done with the second season but I am on S2 E19 I really need to finish the second season and the third season before they come out with the fourth season or if that is the end of the movie and if a creator of flash is watching this don't stop making flash seasons PLEASE
Great app but problem with sound...
by Chicken N a Bisket on 2017/10/01 20:13
This app overall is a great app but for some reason whenever I go on the app for the first time in a day the sound on every video either is non existent or it's just a buzzing sound, but it's only for the actual video. The ads before the videos still have their regular sound. I've asked my friends if they have the same problem but no one else has a problem with the sound. I have the most recent update of the app and my phone has IOS 10.2 so not the most recent update with my phone but it's done that since before IOS 11.0.1 came out. I don't know if it has to do with my phone or the app because restarting my phone will fix the problem but it's just annoying to have to do it everyday whenever I first get on the app.
Put your employees to work!
by n0ts0subtle on 2017/10/10 23:59
Since ios 8 came out, I've only seen one patch from you guys. What are your employees doing all day? Here are a few immediate issues that need fixed asap: 1) When commenting on a vid and the vid ends prior to comment completion, the comment box shrinks up and you have to start all over again. 2) Why is there no edit button once comments are posted from smart phone? 3) The channel switches over to the google account by itself which is an issue all its own but the main frustration is that you can't switch back in the options without having to sign out all together. So either your QC team is filling their time with something other than work, or you allow it and don't care since working on mergers is more important than assuring a quality product. Being so filthy flippin' rich, there is no excuse. Hire Terry Tate and straighten out your office! What are you sitting around for? Get back to work!!
Excruciatingly bad performance.
by NeoChrome1997 on 2017/10/12 01:43
I have an iPhone 6plus, and while I get that my device is a bit old and I shouldn't be expecting buttery smooth performance, at the very least I expect the app to be usable, quite frankly the way it is now, it borderline isn't. The scrolling is incredibly bad, and it gets even worse when I have the video window in the corner. I've given up on the comment section because the lag and again terrible scrolling. I literally cannot complete a single task without a stutter or two. And from time to time the app freezes completely forcing me to relaunch it. The quality switcher has become incredibly obnoxious. I have to go and tap the desired quality multiple times just for it to change, Sometimes I just give up and leave it on auto resolution. This is simply not acceptable Ever since YT had a major design change, things have been constantly going down hill with every update, and this was just the cherry on top. At this point your application has no redeeming factors period. These type of problems really have me wondering if your dev team even demo devices before releasing updates. I know I may sound obnoxious, but if this wasn't such an essential app I wouldn't be complaining. YT is easily the worst app I currently have on my phone. Please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaase fix it!
You broke something
by Aneirin09 on 2017/11/09 04:48
I’ve been having a fine experience with this app as it far surpasses watching videos on safari however, in the past few days of use I’ve found a very annoying persistent bug. I’ll start watching a video and a couple seconds after turning to landscape mode the video will freeze while the audio keeps playing and will soft lock my phone. Only after reorienting back to portrait mode and pressing the home button multiple times am I able to find myself on the home screen of iOS. I can then go back into the app and continue watching where I left off with the video playback remaining fine. I’m not sure what has changed as I’ve never experienced this before but now it seems that every video I watch I need to go through this process to enjoy my content. Very disappointing.
Repeating Ads and Cast Button
by Miixchael on 2017/10/20 22:33
I’ve been continually getting the same ads over and over and over again and it will happen periodically for a whole day and then go back to normal. I’ll get the same ads before and during every video for the whole day or two before starting to get a mix of a few different ones. As for the cast button, there NEEDS to be a way to be able to turn it off from showing up in my devices settings. It’s happened too many times where I’ve accidentally connected to a TV in another room that someone is using because I accidentally clicked cast. Another way to possibly prevent this would be to put another pop up on the cast button that asks “are you sure” or something similar to that to prevent this.
Have you not learned anything?!
by Zerobladeshadow on 2017/10/03 22:26
The app is complete garbage as of now and you're making updates to remove videos in the playlist through swiping them? Are you completely oblivious to what is happening in your app? The quality select is terrible because when I want to select the best quality, I have to click on it a couple of times before I get the quality that I want. Then there is the comment section which instead of crashing the app, it now freezes the screen to where you can't pause the video or exit the comments that you're looking at so then I have to reload the video or exit the app. Next time, you need to focus on fixing the problems with your application instead of creating unnecessary features that add nothing to app. These problems should have at least been addressed and you should get on top of fixing it immediately!
Battery hog
by Completely original nickname 249673 on 2017/11/02 05:25
This app spent 21.1 of the last 24 hours doing some kind of mysterious “background activity” that drained most of my battery. This is a regular occurrence for it. I’m not sure how it did this or what the 🤬 it was doing since I disallowed background app refresh and it doesn’t even let anything play in the background if you want it to. Plus, no picture in picture support? A nonstandard interface where the video controls block you from seeing the video and you can’t control the volume on the screen? No ability to specify that you always want 1080p and not the blocky 240 it defaults to? No handoff support so I can continue watching a video on a different device? Seriously? Weak. The worst thing is that you’re pretty much forced to use this app because they actively block you from making videos full screen on their web interface specifically on iPads.
Are you serious?
by Ultimate benja on 2017/10/08 15:49
Two updates ago it was working perfectly, now I can't comment or it messes everything up and the keyboard stays during the video, some videos don't play at all, and the major I have with the new update is now when I speed up a video (no matter what times 1.25, 1.5, or 2.0) it buffers like there's no tomorrow. When I used to speed it up it was perfect and so graceful now this app has turned into a mess. I love this app it's the main one I use please fix these errors, your people aren't happy with your app and if people aren't happy they won't use it and you won't earn money, that seems to be what all you guys care about. Please fix it, (but when you guys are fixing it please don't mess something else up) (please focus on fixing the speed up one, it's the most important in my opinion)
Everytime they fix something they screw up something else.
by TheShadowGamer117 on 2017/10/04 08:00
Update: Way to go! If you comment, now the X button to close out of a comment refreshes the comments and wont let you out so you have to close the video to get back to the comments section. I swear literally every time there's an update for this app, they fix something, but then they add another problem. I just got a brand new phone so I know it wasn't my old phone as the issue for sure on this one. When I lock my phone, all of a sudden the video will be at the correct time , but yet it will be playing either a part earlier or later in the video. Why is it so hard to make this app decent? If the scripting is that bad, then rebuild it from the ground up.
Issue with tapping on a video
by Rnjkrug on 2017/11/13 14:14
I can’t remember when it first started, but, when I am watching a video and tap on it, it sometimes has this translucent image of the play or pause buttons and it completely freezes my phone. I try to hit the home button, the screen stays the same. I hit the power button it did the same thing. However, I am able to click on things while the screen is frozen. For example, if I paused the video and the screen froze, I could then click where the play button for the video should be and it would start to play the video but you couldn’t see what was going on. The issue usually resolves itself within in 30 seconds, but, it is a real inconvenience.
Crackling sound
by Butthead123456789 on 2017/11/18 02:59
So this problem just started occurring about 2 days ago. But every time I watch a video there’s a crackling sound, like my speakers pop.. it doesn’t do it during the ads. Just the video. It’s not my speakers on my phone because when I play other audio out of my phone it sounds fine.. I tried restarting my phone, deleting the app, and everything else I can think of. But it still has a popping sound when I watch videos. I don’t know if this is YouTube’s fault or not, but I have a iPhone 8+ so I don’t think it’s my phone. So please fix this issue as it only happens when I play the audio out of my speakers and not through headphones.
Glitchy
by Xanogen on 2017/09/22 22:46
This new update is garbage man the app crashes every few hours and sometimes won't play any videos consistently saying that something went wrong or when you click on a video sometimes it will play but the sound will glitch and sound like a mash of on constant noise. Leaving the app doesn't fix it and completely shutting it down doesn't ether something really needs to be done or something because this is ridiculous, it's always something with each new update I mean seriously has google ever heard of the term "if it ain't broke don't fix it" well now you broke it so please fix it properly and then don't fix again unless it absolutely needs it like it does now or at least do some extensive testing before releasing it. Thank you
Next time I have to review this, it’ll be one star...
by The gameviews on 2017/11/13 04:51
This app can’t seem to work in full screen with my iPhone 6S+ without freezing every time I click the paused video to play it. When I try to get the on screen buttons to show up to resume the video, it freezes and sits there as if it’s thinking, which it clearly isn’t. Once it freezes, I have to WAIT for it to bring up the play button (which takes about 5-10 seconds) before touching ANYTHING, or else the buttons don’t show up and it freezes again! They fixed it for a couple days, then went back to the version that freezes all the time. FIX THIS GLITCH! I can’t be the only person with this problem. Restarting the app doesn’t fix it, and neither does restarting my phone fix it either.
App continuously crashes
by TessaLovesPewds on 2017/10/04 20:49
Since the new update, I’ve not been able to look at any replies that people have left on a thread of comments. Whenever I click off to not reply, but to read the replies on the comment, it will either not let me scroll down or it will change it to another comment when I try to scroll down. The vicious cycle continues on all and any comments. When I finally try to close the thread because it won’t work, it will start to “load” and then the app will crash. And if it doesn’t crash, I’ll be stuck waiting for it to “load” which then means I have to close out the video I was trying to watch. It’s getting quite annoying to say the least.
Great App but Here Are Suggestions
by MerRob54 on 2017/11/16 10:42
Use this app all the time. Love the diversity of information available on it. But would love to be able to ask it to offer only those videos that are audible only, as opposed to those I have to be able to stop to read. Also would love to be able to set it to show only those videos in my language. Lastly, I listen to videos through headphones at work all day and the lead-ins for many videos are extremely loud when using headphones. I would love to be able to listen without having to pop my Headphones out at the beginning of so many videos that are just too loud to be enjoyable.
Playback speed adjustment is overall great, but a few major bugs
by ChristyTTT on 2017/09/13 04:29
On non-normal playback speed, the sound quality is always worse and sometimes the sound will completely go off on certain parts and come back a few seconds later not synced with the video. Also as a recommendation, could you please add a feature where you can control the exact playback speed, anywhere from say 0.01x to 2.00x? One app, ProTube, already does this, and on it, I have every video set to play at 1.33x speed, and this, along with the bugs I mentioned are the main reasons I currently mostly use that app instead of this one.
Does not work 90% of time with Apple TV
by Awesome guy123446789 on 2017/09/29 03:33
This app does not work with apple tv most of the time (streaming from iPhone 6+ via an Apple TV). Interestingly enough though, ads would play without a single issue almost 10 out 10 times, but when it gets to the content that i am interested in playing, there is a playback error 9 out 10 times. When I hit ‘Tap to Retry’ i have to watch another ad, there is an error after that again, and then cycle repeats itself again, again and again, indefinitely. At one point i had to skip through 10 ads, but i still could not watch the content i wanted to watch. Tried different video - same issue. I guess Google isn’t really interested if I get to watch what I want to watch as long as ads keep playing and ad revenue keeps coming in...
Recommended feed is garbage now
by SerratedGrin on 2017/09/30 15:18
You used to be able to go to the recommended feed and it would show you a mix of the channels you're subscribed to and new channels that you might enjoy based on your interests. And, whenever you would refresh it it would load up different videos. Now, it just shows me videos from my subscribed feed or videos I've tagged to watch later, there are no new channels to discover, and if you refresh it it pretty much just shows the same exact content. I don't get it, I loved discovering new channels based on my interests or previously watched videos. Please bring that feature back.
Better but not there
by Designlove56 on 2017/10/31 00:11
Please build the app according the modern day development. The app should be responsive. It simply does not feel like it matches this platform. It should be compatible with picture in picture, and fully setup for floating window multitasking where it is responsive- when going full screen we shouldn’t see two huge long black bars. The video should stand alone when we go into full scree. You guys have this great platform that everyone loves- but the lack of intelligent UI/UX design decisions and choices are just puzzling. Things that are so obvious just ignored or not done- and if these are things you guys honestly aren’t seeing for yourselves- I think it’s time to hire a new design and UI team.
Please add the 'loop' option
by Misu16 on 2017/09/28 21:51
It's great that you've added the 'playback speed' settings which is a great feature to add to mobile, but something that I can only do on my computer and I would really love to see on mobile is the 'loop' feature. I love listening to music on repeat (I know a lot of people can't stand the same song over and over again, but I'm not one of those people), and it's a pain to have to scroll back or press the 'replay' button over and over again, especially if it's a short song. So, please, can you add this feature? Thx.
horrible issues... PLEASE FIX (comments)
by arielle,,,,, on 2017/10/12 05:52
There have been some major issues with the comments sections after the most recent update. Whenever I click to read more if the comment was long or click to read the replies and it opens up that comment, I get stuck. When I click the "x" to get back to the general comments, I get options to report the comment or cancel. So to get back to all the comments I have to shut down the video and reopen it. This also prohibits me from tapping a recommended video as the comments take up the whole page (which wouldn't be an issue if I could get them to go away!). Also, if I tap anywhere but the read more, it automatically sets me up to write a reply which is highly annoying. Aside from the issues with comments this is a great app.
These bugs need to be fixed and I’m guessing everyone agrees
by Toad5187 on 2017/10/24 22:14
I hate these bugs/glitches in this app. ESPECIALLY THE ONE (a new one) WHERE IT SAYS I HAVE TO DISABLE THE RESTRICTED MODE EVEN THOUGH ITS NOT EVEN ENABLED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! This glitch or bug is so annoying.... it been happening for a while and no matter how much I try to fix this, it’s getting more annoying and worse. I tried turning it on and then off to see if it’ll just go away, nothing happens, just the same result just like in the first place it happened. Tried removing and downloading back the app, same results. Turning off and on my phone, same results.... I’m getting very frustrated and annoyed with this bug and the other bugs that’s been going on! The other bugs, I can deal with but this new one is annoying like crazy!!! PLEASE FIX THIS BUG OR GLITCH! NOT ONLY THAT, FIX THE OTHERS TOO!!!!
iOS 11 fix!!
by thumbutts on 2017/09/20 02:53
Now with newest update when I rotate phone to make big screen it doesn’t flip to make big screen. I push the option for big screen that’s at the bottom right corner and it enlarges screen but only upside down and not the other way. So volume buttons are only on the bottom to make big screen and no longer able to be used with volume buttons on the top. Not very convenient. Update : I had the lock screen button on to keep it from rotating!!! Lol oops it was nothing to do with update or your app!! Still amazing !!!
Major Bugs
by johnIennon on 2017/10/22 14:02
Ever since the app has been updated, there have been many bugs added to it. First of all, videos will randomly pause and freeze up my entire phone. I have to actually get out of the app and close it out just to avoid the freeze (which happens again). Secondly, there are times when I click the ‘full screen’ button, and for some reason it takes the whole video and shifts it, so I can only see a mostly black screen and some of the video playing. I usually have to close out the app and restart it entirely. The app will also crash on me randomly, which gets extremely annoying. Please fix these bugs. Until then, I’ll probably avoid using the app for a little while.

Even though their might be some drama you could avoid that. There are many videos on there that can teach you anything you could think of! Reading, how to draw something, bake or even how to sew. You could also find things to help you in life that teach you things. It is good entertainment for kids while you are out and about doing things so they could watch something. This is a pretty good app to get! There could be a few things that could be fixed but everything has flaws and this is what reviews are for. At least try it for 3 days you could learn new things you never knew!
Busted circa iOS 11 update.
by Sai Co. on 2017/11/14 23:40
- SEVERE CONNECTIVITY PROBLEMS associated specifically with this app on both carrier networks and WIFI. Other apps will connect just fine during YouTube’s frequent bouts of “CONNECT TO THE INTERNET”. - When a video does successfully load, there’s only about a 50% chance the description, thumbnails, and comments section will also load. - Videos longer than ten minutes tend to NOTICEABLY DE-SYNCH VIDEO AND AUDIO OVER TIME. A quick double-tap-rewind usually matches them back together, but this kind of bug is inexcusable on app whose main function is playing video. (Check the default frame rate.) - Frequent random errors when trying to add videos to Watch Later. You’ll scroll thirty videos down before the app tells you there was an issue, making you have to scroll back up and find it again.
Please.
by colorfullights123 on 2017/10/05 14:12
Please please please take out the stupid skip buttons that appear on the screen when you're watching a video. What in the actual- does that do. Skipping a video is not that important that it needs its own button on screen. If I could count how many times I have accidentally hit the skip button while I was trying to rewind/fast forward or use some of the other controls, it would annoy me greatly, even more so than I am now. If I could count the collective time that I have spent trying to get back to my video I accidentally skipped out of and then trying to hit the back button and failing and researching for the video in the YT search bar I would die. So please and thanks, take out the skip buttons that appear on the screen, the pause button is okay though.
Update gone wrong?
by Cookiemonsterpw on 2017/09/25 19:03
These last few updates I've been having problems with the videos I'm watching. When I go onto another app and come back the previous video I was watching suddenly disappears and goes back to the home page. Weird thing is that I'm not even gone for that long. But before the updates no matter how long I was gone the video was there for me to view when I got back. Now I'm having a different problem where I can't log into my account, I've tried various passwords, even changed it! Entering the changed password it will not let me log in onto my account whatsoever. Appreciate what y'all are doing just a few bugs that can't be fixed! Good luck to all of you.
Broken Comment Section
by somanywonders on 2017/10/04 14:35
I just updated and now my comment section is very buggy and broken. I like to read comments as I was a video out of habit, but sometimes i accidentally click on a comment and I'm taken to the thread. Before, i would have no problem and could just exit out but the update brought in a bug where i can't exit out of the comment. I'm stuck on a comment where i can't scroll to read the replies or exit out of the thread. Sometimes i would think i clicked on another comment when trying to exit, but i still have the same problem. I have to swipe away the video if i want to have a chance of looking at the comments. Hopefully this bug is squashed soon.
Please fix comment replies!
by Abbey .3. on 2017/10/22 23:03
Sometimes when I click on a comment to see the replies nothing shows up even though it says that there are comments. Also I don’t really like how the keyboard pops up after touching a comment because sometimes I accidentally touch a comment or just want to read the replies and the keyboard shows up and blocks my view, a good way to fix this would be to have the keyboard show up after you press the write a comment button, but it could just be me finding this annoying. Other than that I’ve been having no issues with the app :)
Latest update did something to the playback quality
by TruPinoy122 on 2017/10/04 19:32
the app was just recently updated, and now when i play videos ( and i tried it on a couple of videos just to be sure ) the video playback is not in sync with the audio. kinda like what we used to get on those old “martial arts” movies lol...you see the mouth move but the audio is behind. well whats happening is kinda like that but in reverse. audio is fine but the video playback is lagging. i deleted the app the reinstalled it twice. i know its not my wifi connection, im pushing 150mb download speed and my currently device is the iphone 7 plus (128gb). Again never had this issue until the latest update. just wanted to let the devs know is this is something that coming up.
Great, except for 2 bugs
by MinecraftDash23 on 2017/10/08 16:46
The app works well, but there’s two annoying bugs. Sometimes, when I go into landscape too fast, the video will just become a small rectangle in the bottom left hand corner, and I have to rotate it twice to get it to come back. In addition, when I tap on a quality setting (default is 360p, what?), I have to keep on pressing the 10 second skip buttons back and forth about 10 times before the quality changes. I can tell because it looks much sharper. Annoying, but still better than the mobile browser version.
Bug that needs fixing
by Tankman6394 on 2017/10/18 21:48
I’ve had this app for a very long time, not sure what happen whether it was a new update to the application or the IOS but now there is a bug which freezes the visual part of the video but the audio continues. After about 10-30sec the video updates itself and jumps to the correct portion of the video. Also sometimes it exits full screen mode when this occurs. I’ve uninstalled the app twice now and the problem is reoccurring. I’m leaving a 3* rating not for the quality of the app itself but so this comment may be noticed by Google. Thank you. P.S I will adjust the rating once the bug is fixed.
Screen freezes in full-screen mode.
by ThanEspo on 2017/10/23 01:12
This has only been occurring for me after the most recent update. At the slightest provocation, such as tilting back to the smaller screen, pressing the pause button or time skipping, the screen will completely freeze while the audio keeps playing. This will last anywhere from 10 seconds to over a minute. Not only that, but it can also lock the current frame, so even when the screen unfreezes and I’m able to interact with other things, the video is still stuck on that same frame. Switching videos doesn’t even fix this problem either! This has become a common occurrence. By that I mean upwards of 5 times per 20 minute video. Please address this as soon as possible.
Amazing but here is the thing
by XxEpicPlayzxX on 2017/11/16 03:26
So this app is great. Not much bugs. Here is the thing. You can't add videos in comments. I see a lot of people saying there is bugs but I think it's because of storage. I am rating this 5 stars because I basically can't live without this. One bug is that when you are watching a video, the video stops but he sound keeps on playing. Another bug is that u just lag out. Therefore, this app needs some improvement but besides that, it's pretty good. Please fix these little bugs. Thank you.
Two main complaints
by AshTheEmoBoy on 2017/09/15 01:57
1) There's nowhere for me to copy a link. If I go to my browser, it forces me into the app, and the app doesn't allow me to copy a link to share in specific places or to save to my phone for later. If I delete the app, I can pull it up with the browser and just copy it from there. 2) If I'm watching a video that's 30-45 minutes long in the app, I am interrupted and bombarded with ads. I have to wait for the "skip ad button" before going back to what I was doing. If I watch the same video in the browser, there are either no ads, or only ads at the beginning. If you interrupt my video with an ad, I hate you. One star for these two things causing the app to be unusable when the browser version is so much better.
Just a little more..
by FluffyDoughnuts on 2017/11/10 20:04
Hey Yt you're a good use but I have some things to talk about. First name changing, I would like if you could be alowed to change your name a bunch, because 90 days takes almost a year and I don't like that so if you could fix that thx. Second I would like to know how to change your name, but not have any spaces it would help if I knew how to do that. Thx for reading if you did I hope these two things I don't like get fixed. I'm glad that I like this app but thats what needs to be fixed. Thanks Again Yt
It’s great and all, but...
by LeMakna on 2017/10/11 03:16
I can not thank the developers of this app enough for the effort they put into it. It’s easy to use interface and compatibility with various devices is astounding. However, there one problem: why is this app rated 17+? I understand the potential risks that come with not including the rating, but I use this app for almost ALL of my schoolwork, whether it’s research, presentations, or feedback. So why am I not allowed to view comments? Or access certain videos (ie certain news footage, etc.) It just isn’t fair. Anyway, thanks for reading, and keep up the good work.
Very good and practical but some bugs and issues
by Ninjham on 2017/11/08 04:29
The app is very good for watching videos but sometimes the screen won’t let me scroll, the quality at the beginning of a video will ALWAYS be at its lowest setting even though it could easily be higher and sometimes will just stay low, will open some random thing I wasn’t even close to tapping by, when I scroll and stop my finger while still holding down the scrolling will be all jittery, or the screen will be unresponsive completely. I would also like a dark mode like on the computer.

Can’t block Trump?
by DBHme on 2017/11/19 01:12
Why does this app keep sending me push notifications recommending videos from Trump’s re-election campaign? Even when I have the account blocked? That’s messed-up, guys. Real creepy. Congrats, I’m forced to turn off notifications from this app. If this keeps up, I’m deleting the app. Thanks for the extra reminder that a fascist gangster has hijacked our government. Just what everyone needs in their life.
Keeps on playing after minimize on iOS
by Navi and kj on 2017/11/19 01:03
Why you contents are still playing after you exit like pushing home button it suppose pause or something with recent update with iOS it is doing it ever since. Any possible fix. Every time I have stop the app completely in order stop its playback. Otherwise I will keep hearing what I was playing.

Love it but some things need to be fixed.......
by The Foosa on 2017/11/19 00:24
I really like all the videos load really quickly. And you can video for your own channel off of your phone or anything like that. But I mostly use YouTube to listen to nightcore and music. But when I add it to a playlist I goes straight to the bottom of the list. I remembered before that I could move around the playlist how ever I like but I’m not sure if you’ll ever bring that back. I would also like to add can you listen to whatever you were listening to after you exit the app like Pandora? That would be amazing! I could actually listen to the music I like with knowing what’s coming on next unlike other apps!! Otherwise I really like how you made the app work.😁😁
Not loading Hi def! Too much buffering!

About YouTube Red...
by Kia214 on 2017/11/18 23:45
I’m not getting all alerts when people respond to my comments. Sometimes the video gets stuck in a corner when in landscape. You guys should offer 3 different packages with YouTube Red: 1) exclusive YouTube Red content, music stream, ad free and background play; 2) unlimited music streaming only; and 3) background play only. YouTube Red is good in theory but the fact of the matter is I pay $5 for Apple Music- I do not need another music streaming subscription. I also do not care about YouTube Red exclusive content. I hate ads, but they’re not the end of the world. THE ONLY APPEALING THING TO ME ABOUT YOUTUBE RED IS BACKGROUND PLAY! I would love to listen to my “podcasts” as I’m scrolling down Twitter. I hate having to pick between both platforms. Please consider! PS - on Amazon Fire, I’m able to make a “queue”. We should also have that ability on the mobile app into addition to auto play. We should also be able to sort our “to watch play list” in multiple orders. And give us a “live alerts” only bell alert option!
pretty much the dumbest devs ever
by HerbS2urnerves on 2017/11/18 23:41
if youtube app was a videogame it would be dead by now. these devs are excruciatingly stupid. so if you are writing a comment while the current video is finished and autoplay starts the next video than you cant stop writing the comment. the only way to regain any control over the app after that is to force close it. this is what they do with the hundreds of millions they make off youtube. they buy drugs and get high. as opposed to actually making a working product.
GO BACK

Random Glitches
by isthatkimmi on 2017/11/18 21:45
The app isn’t the worst BUT some of the controls don’t work when connected to chromecast. The volume control, play/pause buttons and scrolling back or forth to a certain time in the videos don’t work half the time when I’m using the app.
Still awful, big surprise.
by Taz6202 on 2017/11/18 21:37
As if having a ton a crap channels thrown at you wasn’t bad enough now there making it so the good content creators are leaving. I hope whoever is in charge of this tire fire gets let go. Also I don’t care about your crap live channels that have one person watching them, there garbage. Thanks for pushing away all the good content creators. I’m sure twitch is super excited that you keep shooting yourself in the foot. GG!

Bug unfixed for years
by Riverpancake on 2017/11/18 18:50
There has been this one bug that YouTube has never fixed and has always been present as long as I can remember. Whenever you turn your phone sideways the orientation of user interface remains as though your phone is still upright and your stuck with half of a video in the bottom corner of your screen. Either they’re too lazy to fix or they don’t know how. I suggest looking into this issue with a little more effort, Thanks.

A Suspicious Bug
by Sarah Civil on 2017/11/18 18:08
I hate ads, so whenever I see one (whether I support the content creator or not) I will click skip ad the chance I get. Buuuuut... suspiciously some of the advertisements will say I can skip them but when I go to click "skip ad" nothing happens. I mean NOTHING, I can't close the video, minimize the app or even lock my phone. I'm just stuck in purgatory while I have to watch another dumb mayonnaise commercial. However as soon as the ad is over my video starts playing again. Look YouTube if you want to make the ad required just do that, don't freeze my phone while a skippable ad is playing and make it look like my phone's fault. This is happening a lot too. Twelve times was enough to write a review about your app. Either it is a 'bug' and requires attention or it's not and you're freezing my phone to make me watch the seventeenth Stranger Things commercial I've seen. Until then I encourage people who encounter this bug to leave a review as well.
Wrongfully Subscribed
by Actually Everyone on 2017/11/18 17:59

it works fine but....
by Melito 19 on 2017/11/18 17:03
the app is nicely laid out for an iphone 10 user in my opinion but whenever I’m watching a video at any given time the video stops working and the audio keeps going without the video playback i have to put my phone to sleep and open youtube again so it can correctly work. please fix its really annoying its happening more then often. thanks.
Cellular Quality
by XxXGummyBearXxX on 2017/11/18 16:59
I used to be able to watch videos using my phones data and change the video quality and now I can't? I was using YouTube a lot more since then but now I guess I'm stuck only using it with wifi. Thanks. Also thanks on making the app worse every time it’s updated. Nothing is ever fixed anymore. Gets annoying pausing a video and have the app freeze. Video just pausing and trying to load when it was already running smooth. Always got to fix apps for the new phones and screws over everyone who doesn’t have one. That’s how Apple is sadly.
freezes in full screen

The best
by Chevron125 on 2017/11/18 15:45
I use this app all the time for watching great, high quality videos. I would like it if you tapped on the screen and you could see the time instead of going into small screen to see the time and then go back to large screen. All in all, this app is one of my favorites.

Still trash
by Never had an app close on 2017/11/18 14:40
For the past three updates it will randomly push a dark screen and freeze with another dark screen above that. The only way to stop it is to spam the home button. Please fix this

Major bug after last update
by Ryan_n_Indy on 2017/11/18 13:58
Video results from a search cannot be opened. This started after the last app update. This makes YouTube relatively useless for me. Please correct or I will have to cancel my YouTube Red subscription. Using iOS 11.1.2.

It works great but sometimes when you hit the little button in the corner to make it smaller it doesn’t work. But overall I think it should be five stars.

by Hellraiser7269 on 2017/11/18 13:28
YouTube is great as long as YouTube agrees with you . For those of us however, that see the world for what it really is view YouTube as tool being used by google to manipulate how you view truth perhaps even change your viewpoints. Not a single person should fall for this utter nonsense and propaganda on mainstream news . And YouTube should not be editing content creators works because they disagree with said propaganda This is the age of great deception. We are Witnessing the modern day book burning on a digital landscape .

Cracking Noises
by n_alvarez2007 on 2017/11/18 08:55
Don’t know what Google did here but as of this morning, seems like there is a very distinct cracking noise coming from every video on my iPhone 8 Plus. This coming after an update which should have addressed the abysmal battery drain coming from the app. Not a fan Google! Quit nerfing your competition’s platform! It’s hostile to consumers and bad business for you.
Videos do not play after searching
by jocbaz on 2017/11/18 08:52
Video results do not play the results when you select the video results from any search on iPad Pro 2nd generation, 10.5 inches. Note this has started happening from the last YouTube update app. iPad is running the latest iOS version. Please do the needful to fix it
Good
by spiderpopstar youtube on 2017/11/18 08:32
I like how you can make your own channel to get popular. It's cool. I also like that you can listen to your favorite singers (Eminem), and watch tutorials,makeup,vlogs,adventures,gaming,horror,etc. The possibilities are limitless! Highly recommended!
Lag strikes after iOS 11 update
by Jag battle on 2017/11/18 08:10
Been suffering MAJOR lag where the screen will freeze and take FORVER to get back to normal. Heck sometimes the video will freeze, and not change even though I’m trying to watch a different video.

Help please👌🏻
by Tatelee on 2017/11/18 04:03
So the app is great. I use it a lot. For entertainment and for learning about science and how to do stuff, anyway. I’ve recently had the problem when I’m watching a video normally a long video but will also happen to shorter videos, it will just like pause and show the loading circle in the middle of the screen right in the middle of a video and skip a few seconds and resume playing and this will happen quite a few times during a video. Please help fix this small yet annoying bug, besides that the app runs great. Keep up the good work
Great but one big problem!
by Azetlor246 on 2017/11/18 03:59
Whenever I go into full screen right after opening a video the screen glitches to the bottom left corner but after I tilt my phone up and then back down it is fixed but it's really annoying :(
Popping speaker
by BluzzyBug on 2017/11/18 03:53

-pros and cons
by Cardology on 2017/11/18 03:49
Update: downgrading from two to one star now that the speaker is crackling only in this app.. sound quality is so bad i have to result to playing youtube through safari 🙄 Pros -plays youtube videos -finally added a playback speed option Cons -No feature to play audio.. this was basic feature in many youtube player apps before they all got taken down. -the only app that i have that does not display the clock at the top of the screen so you have to leave the video to see time. -No option for playback when you leave the app, so you can’t listen to music and play a game on your phone at the same time. -cannot manually select playback quality while using cell data

Getting a static sound when I watch videos
by Ropeygearhead23 on 2017/11/18 03:25
When I try to watch a video on the YouTube app there is a static, popping/crackling sound in the background. This only happens on the YouTube app. If I go to safari and watch a YouTube video there, the sound is perfect. I have an iPhone 8 with everything up to date. Any suggestions?

Crackling and popping sound after last update
by Kondor999 on 2017/11/18 03:11
Last update results in really annoying sound glitches when using YT app. The phone itself is fine. Watching YT via browser works without any issues (sound is fine). All other apps have normal sound. This is specific to the YT app. Lots of people complaining. C’mon - please test this stuff (iPhone 8 here) before deploying.
Auditory quality
by Platter123987 on 2017/11/18 03:11

Good, but needs a lot of improvements
by Alexander Mayeux on 2017/11/13 02:47
I use this app all the time and for the most part it works really well! The videos load up fairly quickly and they can be watched without any trouble when watching in a high resolution. And in its simplest form, that’s it! It works well! However, there are some bugs and some flaws that need to be fixed. While the videos are watchable, at times it will freeze and the app will just crash. This can get really annoying when you’re watching something and then all of a sudden it just crashes on you. Thankfully, once you head back into the app, it will let you start off from where you were. But there is one last flaw that really should be fixed, connecting to the TV. While videos do work well on the TV, half of the time I’ll be watching a video, and then all of a sudden I may accidentally tap the icon to connect to the TV and then it will just connect. You can exit out of it, but sometimes I won’t notice and it will connect to my TV without me even knowing. And I feel like when you tap on the icon, it should say “Are you sure that you want to connect to this TV?” And then you could either tap Yes or No, instead of it just automatically connecting with very little time to cancel the operation. Other than these though, the app isn’t all that bad and I would recommend it, as long as the flaws don’t mess with your time watching videos, then it is a passable app.
This thing is unbelievably stupid
by Dinosaurology on 2017/11/08 17:12
I used to think that perhaps you were going in the correct direction, but it seems that I was proven wrong by the very humans that created this thing. The only positives are that I can watch videos and I have the ability to go into the history and either rewatch something or remove something. The negatives however, are atrocious, it includes, videos not included in my subscription feed ( I almost didn’t know of one of my favorite Drawfee videos, as well as a Draw With Jazza video), the recommendations are useless, if I want to watch trending videos, I will go to trending, but the recommendations seem to “think” I want them in my recommendations. It constantly recommends political videos, annoying pop songs, idiots whining about things that do not exist, and that Netflix show “Stranger Things”( Well, I am perfectly fine with the last one even though I know almost nothing about “Stranger Things”, which from the two videos I watched about it, it reminds me of “The Goonies”). There is another type of video that gets recommended to me, but “people” will very likely get offended. There is this bug that causes that triangle thing to appear when I hold my iPod horizontally, though it is supposed to only appear when holding it vertically, once that happens I have to close the application. Occasionally this thing acts as if I have no WiFi signal, though everything else that requires a signal works fine.
Needs a new "Tell us why" option
by MichaelKr4 on 2017/10/24 00:24
I think I MIGHT have watched a gaming livestream ONCE. Now YouTube's algorithms seem to think that gaming livestreams are my favorite thing in the world. It doesn't matter how many times I click "not interested" to remove them from my feed, every time I refresh I have 10-12 new GTA V, World of Warcraft, and other random gaming livestreams in my feed. If I click the "tell us why" option, I have three options: already watched the video; don't like the video; not interested in the channel. Any of those options only seem to suggest to the algorithm that I just want to watch gaming livestreams from a DIFFERENT channel. No. I. Do. Not. Want. To. Watch. ANY. Gaming. Livestreams. If I ever decide that I do, I know how to type, "please show me a gaming livestream from some random person I don't care about" in the search bar. The video feed is already weak and biased towards view numbers on this app. But the constant livestreams in my feed that I couldn't possibly care less about have found a way to make it even worse. How about putting some content from channels I actually subscribe to in my feed? Crazy, I know. I mean, literally every other video in my feed is a GTA V livestream. I don't see how it benefits your business model to constantly "suggest" videos I have absolutely NO intention of watching or generating ad revenue for.
Two bugs you really need to fix (sorry for this being WAY to long)
by Yuuriip on 2017/10/11 22:56
Alright, I'm giving this four stars I would've put five but these two bugs have bin going on for awhile and it's annoying me. 1.when I'm watching I video I want to get out of full screen and all of a sudden it switches me back into full screen and it wouldn't let me leave it this has been going far to long and it's getting annoying 2.Now this one hasn't been going for a long time but this is getting in my nerves when I type a comment on a video and then I think to myself *nah I shouldn't type that* so I tap the screen to get out of the comment and it shows the keyboard this is confusing the way I'm typing this but let me explain for people reading, for iPhones, iPads and tablets you have to tap on your screen to get out of your comment but of course people may have done that by mistake and then they have to type it all again so it tells *do you want discard your comment or keep typing* simple but NOW when I want to get out of the comment the thing shows BUT MY KEYBOARD DOESNT DISAPPEAR AMD IT BLOCKS THE *do you want to discard the comment or keep typing* SO THEM I HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE APP SO I CAN WATCH A DIFFERENT VIDEO THIS IS SUPER ANNOYING
Horrible example of what a monopoly can get away with
by G17_____ on 2017/11/14 10:28
This application is absolutely horrible. Even when no videos are displayed on the device, rather the app is used another device such as Roku or Chromecast this app drains the battery like no other! Even with this constant operation, draining the battery, the app often loses the sync with the controlled device. Battery drain continues even if app disconnects from the controller device. Furthermore, when there is a new release with supposedly bug fixes - the description of the fixes is typically an insult to users intelligence, with statements like “make world a better place” or such. Which barely passes as amusing once but is extremely annoying when repeated time after time in different forms. Had the app been developed by anyone smaller than Google (or one of the big 5), it would’ve been kicked out of the App Store. The development team’s level is very poor. But then, being a monopoly Google can get away with anything. Even Apple is afraid to put this substandard and sloppy team in place.
This app is part of why I don't own a Google phone
by SirNickity on 2017/11/04 19:21
Google's software quality is amazingly bad. For a company that has literally innovated the Internet up to where it is today, they really drop the ball on simple things. Like proper handling of screen rotation. (Has anyone even had this problem in ANY other mobile app? I haven't. Yet it has plagued YT for years.) Or that one bug where video would restart from the beginning while audio kept going. (Thankfully that seems to be fixed now, but it was a problem for way too long.) With the latest update, YT is now able to turn my phone into a hand warmer. 30 min of video drained a quarter of my battery life. Well that's new. I've got to learn not to update this app anymore when I finally run across a version that works. Or, more accurately, when the bugs it has don't affect me enough to care. Get your $@!# together, Google. "It compiles" is not QA.
IDK
by KCM03 on 2017/09/30 06:49
Update causes app to no longer recognize Apple lightening digital a/v adapter. Now my phone will only do screen mirroring (it used to automatically switch it to AirPlay mode), which I personally would not mind, except that for some reason, i can no longer play a playlist if I am using my adapter. The app will play one video and then stop, even though I am supposed to be playing a playlist. I am not talking about auto play. I am referring to a playlist. And auto play does not work with playlists — because it is a playlist. I used to be able to plug in my adapter, shuffle a playlist and go on about my day with my phone playing video after video. Now, I use my adapter and then have to run back to my phone every time a video ends. Not good —not happy. This is not an IOS issue because it was doing this before I updated. In fact, I updated my phone because I thought it would resolve the problem. I keep trying to find solutions, but nothing has corrected something that was not an issue until now.
Great but major bugs...
by Csrgamingfan on 2017/09/15 09:43
When I play a video after a few seconds it says “Something went wrong please try again" and that really annoys me because the video starts for the beginning again so if you have any answers please let me know! Over all AMAZING!❤️❤️❤️ Edit: okay there are a lot of bugs in the latest update it keeps saying “something went wrong please try again" and I can't play any video because of that HUGE ANNOYING BUG! The videos don't “stay" I mean that when I leave the page open for a few minutes it just goes away! These bugs really annoy me and I would like you to fix them please...I can't watch my daily videos and it's just annoying! It gets so annoying that I quit watching videos and play boring games! So I would love it if you fix theses major and huge bugs...thanks if you do!❤️❤️❤️❤️
recommendations are stupid.
by IrisKat:3 on 2017/11/16 01:20
I watched two vine compilations and ONE AlbertsStuff video. Now, my recommendations are piled with dead vines and Roblox videos. There’s not even videos from my subscriptions, which is just dumb, I should say. I always click “I am uninterested” but they never get deleted. Do you people even listen to the reviews? You still have horrible reviews from two years ago. You keep adding new, unnecessary stuff, yet you guys don’t fix the vital issues that were probably there from 2 years ago. I hate to support this app but this is the only video app I prefer to watch from, because it’s the most popular, unfortunately. Don’t expect me to buy any apps or merch from this company until you get more satisfied customers. I only gave you two stars because I feel bad for all of you and your incompetence. Once you fix these stupid bugs I will gladly give you 5 stars. Stop adding unneeded features and LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE THAT GIVE YOU MONEY.
It is amazing
by Pickschu Slayer10 on 2017/11/01 01:43
You could watch everything that you want to watch on here but there is one thing I want y'all to do I want y'all to make a video for season one two and three of the flash it would be cool if someone could make a video one the seasons of flash I am still trying to catch up on the season I am going to be honest I haven't even finished the second season a true flash fan would be done with the second season but I started watching it about a month ago and I am still not done with the second season but I am on S2 E19 I really need to finish the second season and the third season before they come out with the fourth season or if that is the end of the movie and if a creator of flash is watching this don't stop making flash seasons PLEASE
Great app but problem with sound...
by Chicken N a Bisket on 2017/10/01 20:13
This app overall is a great app but for some reason whenever I go on the app for the first time in a day the sound on every video either is non existent or it's just a buzzing sound, but it's only for the actual video. The ads before the videos still have their regular sound. I've asked my friends if they have the same problem but no one else has a problem with the sound. I have the most recent update of the app and my phone has IOS 10.2 so not the most recent update with my phone but it's done that since before IOS 11.0.1 came out. I don't know if it has to do with my phone or the app because restarting my phone will fix the problem but it's just annoying to have to do it everyday whenever I first get on the app.
Put your employees to work!
by n0ts0subtle on 2017/10/10 23:59
Since ios 8 came out, I've only seen one patch from you guys. What are your employees doing all day? Here are a few immediate issues that need fixed asap: 1) When commenting on a vid and the vid ends prior to comment completion, the comment box shrinks up and you have to start all over again. 2) Why is there no edit button once comments are posted from smart phone? 3) The channel switches over to the google account by itself which is an issue all its own but the main frustration is that you can't switch back in the options without having to sign out all together. So either your QC team is filling their time with something other than work, or you allow it and don't care since working on mergers is more important than assuring a quality product. Being so filthy flippin' rich, there is no excuse. Hire Terry Tate and straighten out your office! What are you sitting around for? Get back to work!!
Excruciatingly bad performance.
by NeoChrome1997 on 2017/10/12 01:43
I have an iPhone 6plus, and while I get that my device is a bit old and I shouldn't be expecting buttery smooth performance, at the very least I expect the app to be usable, quite frankly the way it is now, it borderline isn't. The scrolling is incredibly bad, and it gets even worse when I have the video window in the corner. I've given up on the comment section because the lag and again terrible scrolling. I literally cannot complete a single task without a stutter or two. And from time to time the app freezes completely forcing me to relaunch it. The quality switcher has become incredibly obnoxious. I have to go and tap the desired quality multiple times just for it to change, Sometimes I just give up and leave it on auto resolution. This is simply not acceptable Ever since YT had a major design change, things have been constantly going down hill with every update, and this was just the cherry on top. At this point your application has no redeeming factors period. These type of problems really have me wondering if your dev team even demo devices before releasing updates. I know I may sound obnoxious, but if this wasn't such an essential app I wouldn't be complaining. YT is easily the worst app I currently have on my phone. Please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaase fix it!
You broke something
by Aneirin09 on 2017/11/09 04:48
I’ve been having a fine experience with this app as it far surpasses watching videos on safari however, in the past few days of use I’ve found a very annoying persistent bug. I’ll start watching a video and a couple seconds after turning to landscape mode the video will freeze while the audio keeps playing and will soft lock my phone. Only after reorienting back to portrait mode and pressing the home button multiple times am I able to find myself on the home screen of iOS. I can then go back into the app and continue watching where I left off with the video playback remaining fine. I’m not sure what has changed as I’ve never experienced this before but now it seems that every video I watch I need to go through this process to enjoy my content. Very disappointing.
Repeating Ads and Cast Button
by Miixchael on 2017/10/20 22:33
I’ve been continually getting the same ads over and over and over again and it will happen periodically for a whole day and then go back to normal. I’ll get the same ads before and during every video for the whole day or two before starting to get a mix of a few different ones. As for the cast button, there NEEDS to be a way to be able to turn it off from showing up in my devices settings. It’s happened too many times where I’ve accidentally connected to a TV in another room that someone is using because I accidentally clicked cast. Another way to possibly prevent this would be to put another pop up on the cast button that asks “are you sure” or something similar to that to prevent this.
Have you not learned anything?!
by Zerobladeshadow on 2017/10/03 22:26
The app is complete garbage as of now and you're making updates to remove videos in the playlist through swiping them? Are you completely oblivious to what is happening in your app? The quality select is terrible because when I want to select the best quality, I have to click on it a couple of times before I get the quality that I want. Then there is the comment section which instead of crashing the app, it now freezes the screen to where you can't pause the video or exit the comments that you're looking at so then I have to reload the video or exit the app. Next time, you need to focus on fixing the problems with your application instead of creating unnecessary features that add nothing to app. These problems should have at least been addressed and you should get on top of fixing it immediately!
Battery hog
by Completely original nickname 249673 on 2017/11/02 05:25
This app spent 21.1 of the last 24 hours doing some kind of mysterious “background activity” that drained most of my battery. This is a regular occurrence for it. I’m not sure how it did this or what the 🤬 it was doing since I disallowed background app refresh and it doesn’t even let anything play in the background if you want it to. Plus, no picture in picture support? A nonstandard interface where the video controls block you from seeing the video and you can’t control the volume on the screen? No ability to specify that you always want 1080p and not the blocky 240 it defaults to? No handoff support so I can continue watching a video on a different device? Seriously? Weak. The worst thing is that you’re pretty much forced to use this app because they actively block you from making videos full screen on their web interface specifically on iPads.
Are you serious?
by Ultimate benja on 2017/10/08 15:49
Two updates ago it was working perfectly, now I can't comment or it messes everything up and the keyboard stays during the video, some videos don't play at all, and the major I have with the new update is now when I speed up a video (no matter what times 1.25, 1.5, or 2.0) it buffers like there's no tomorrow. When I used to speed it up it was perfect and so graceful now this app has turned into a mess. I love this app it's the main one I use please fix these errors, your people aren't happy with your app and if people aren't happy they won't use it and you won't earn money, that seems to be what all you guys care about. Please fix it, (but when you guys are fixing it please don't mess something else up) (please focus on fixing the speed up one, it's the most important in my opinion)
Everytime they fix something they screw up something else.
by TheShadowGamer117 on 2017/10/04 08:00
Update: Way to go! If you comment, now the X button to close out of a comment refreshes the comments and wont let you out so you have to close the video to get back to the comments section. I swear literally every time there's an update for this app, they fix something, but then they add another problem. I just got a brand new phone so I know it wasn't my old phone as the issue for sure on this one. When I lock my phone, all of a sudden the video will be at the correct time , but yet it will be playing either a part earlier or later in the video. Why is it so hard to make this app decent? If the scripting is that bad, then rebuild it from the ground up.
Issue with tapping on a video
by Rnjkrug on 2017/11/13 14:14
I can’t remember when it first started, but, when I am watching a video and tap on it, it sometimes has this translucent image of the play or pause buttons and it completely freezes my phone. I try to hit the home button, the screen stays the same. I hit the power button it did the same thing. However, I am able to click on things while the screen is frozen. For example, if I paused the video and the screen froze, I could then click where the play button for the video should be and it would start to play the video but you couldn’t see what was going on. The issue usually resolves itself within in 30 seconds, but, it is a real inconvenience.
Crackling sound
by Butthead123456789 on 2017/11/18 02:59
So this problem just started occurring about 2 days ago. But every time I watch a video there’s a crackling sound, like my speakers pop.. it doesn’t do it during the ads. Just the video. It’s not my speakers on my phone because when I play other audio out of my phone it sounds fine.. I tried restarting my phone, deleting the app, and everything else I can think of. But it still has a popping sound when I watch videos. I don’t know if this is YouTube’s fault or not, but I have a iPhone 8+ so I don’t think it’s my phone. So please fix this issue as it only happens when I play the audio out of my speakers and not through headphones.
Glitchy
by Xanogen on 2017/09/22 22:46
This new update is garbage man the app crashes every few hours and sometimes won't play any videos consistently saying that something went wrong or when you click on a video sometimes it will play but the sound will glitch and sound like a mash of on constant noise. Leaving the app doesn't fix it and completely shutting it down doesn't ether something really needs to be done or something because this is ridiculous, it's always something with each new update I mean seriously has google ever heard of the term "if it ain't broke don't fix it" well now you broke it so please fix it properly and then don't fix again unless it absolutely needs it like it does now or at least do some extensive testing before releasing it. Thank you
Next time I have to review this, it’ll be one star...
by The gameviews on 2017/11/13 04:51
This app can’t seem to work in full screen with my iPhone 6S+ without freezing every time I click the paused video to play it. When I try to get the on screen buttons to show up to resume the video, it freezes and sits there as if it’s thinking, which it clearly isn’t. Once it freezes, I have to WAIT for it to bring up the play button (which takes about 5-10 seconds) before touching ANYTHING, or else the buttons don’t show up and it freezes again! They fixed it for a couple days, then went back to the version that freezes all the time. FIX THIS GLITCH! I can’t be the only person with this problem. Restarting the app doesn’t fix it, and neither does restarting my phone fix it either.
App continuously crashes
by TessaLovesPewds on 2017/10/04 20:49
Since the new update, I’ve not been able to look at any replies that people have left on a thread of comments. Whenever I click off to not reply, but to read the replies on the comment, it will either not let me scroll down or it will change it to another comment when I try to scroll down. The vicious cycle continues on all and any comments. When I finally try to close the thread because it won’t work, it will start to “load” and then the app will crash. And if it doesn’t crash, I’ll be stuck waiting for it to “load” which then means I have to close out the video I was trying to watch. It’s getting quite annoying to say the least.
Great App but Here Are Suggestions
by MerRob54 on 2017/11/16 10:42
Use this app all the time. Love the diversity of information available on it. But would love to be able to ask it to offer only those videos that are audible only, as opposed to those I have to be able to stop to read. Also would love to be able to set it to show only those videos in my language. Lastly, I listen to videos through headphones at work all day and the lead-ins for many videos are extremely loud when using headphones. I would love to be able to listen without having to pop my Headphones out at the beginning of so many videos that are just too loud to be enjoyable.
Playback speed adjustment is overall great, but a few major bugs
by ChristyTTT on 2017/09/13 04:29
On non-normal playback speed, the sound quality is always worse and sometimes the sound will completely go off on certain parts and come back a few seconds later not synced with the video. Also as a recommendation, could you please add a feature where you can control the exact playback speed, anywhere from say 0.01x to 2.00x? One app, ProTube, already does this, and on it, I have every video set to play at 1.33x speed, and this, along with the bugs I mentioned are the main reasons I currently mostly use that app instead of this one.
Does not work 90% of time with Apple TV
by Awesome guy123446789 on 2017/09/29 03:33
This app does not work with apple tv most of the time (streaming from iPhone 6+ via an Apple TV). Interestingly enough though, ads would play without a single issue almost 10 out 10 times, but when it gets to the content that i am interested in playing, there is a playback error 9 out 10 times. When I hit ‘Tap to Retry’ i have to watch another ad, there is an error after that again, and then cycle repeats itself again, again and again, indefinitely. At one point i had to skip through 10 ads, but i still could not watch the content i wanted to watch. Tried different video - same issue. I guess Google isn’t really interested if I get to watch what I want to watch as long as ads keep playing and ad revenue keeps coming in...
Recommended feed is garbage now
by SerratedGrin on 2017/09/30 15:18
You used to be able to go to the recommended feed and it would show you a mix of the channels you're subscribed to and new channels that you might enjoy based on your interests. And, whenever you would refresh it it would load up different videos. Now, it just shows me videos from my subscribed feed or videos I've tagged to watch later, there are no new channels to discover, and if you refresh it it pretty much just shows the same exact content. I don't get it, I loved discovering new channels based on my interests or previously watched videos. Please bring that feature back.
Better but not there
by Designlove56 on 2017/10/31 00:11
Please build the app according the modern day development. The app should be responsive. It simply does not feel like it matches this platform. It should be compatible with picture in picture, and fully setup for floating window multitasking where it is responsive- when going full screen we shouldn’t see two huge long black bars. The video should stand alone when we go into full scree. You guys have this great platform that everyone loves- but the lack of intelligent UI/UX design decisions and choices are just puzzling. Things that are so obvious just ignored or not done- and if these are things you guys honestly aren’t seeing for yourselves- I think it’s time to hire a new design and UI team.
Please add the 'loop' option
by Misu16 on 2017/09/28 21:51
It's great that you've added the 'playback speed' settings which is a great feature to add to mobile, but something that I can only do on my computer and I would really love to see on mobile is the 'loop' feature. I love listening to music on repeat (I know a lot of people can't stand the same song over and over again, but I'm not one of those people), and it's a pain to have to scroll back or press the 'replay' button over and over again, especially if it's a short song. So, please, can you add this feature? Thx.
horrible issues... PLEASE FIX (comments)
by arielle,,,,, on 2017/10/12 05:52
There have been some major issues with the comments sections after the most recent update. Whenever I click to read more if the comment was long or click to read the replies and it opens up that comment, I get stuck. When I click the "x" to get back to the general comments, I get options to report the comment or cancel. So to get back to all the comments I have to shut down the video and reopen it. This also prohibits me from tapping a recommended video as the comments take up the whole page (which wouldn't be an issue if I could get them to go away!). Also, if I tap anywhere but the read more, it automatically sets me up to write a reply which is highly annoying. Aside from the issues with comments this is a great app.
These bugs need to be fixed and I’m guessing everyone agrees
by Toad5187 on 2017/10/24 22:14
I hate these bugs/glitches in this app. ESPECIALLY THE ONE (a new one) WHERE IT SAYS I HAVE TO DISABLE THE RESTRICTED MODE EVEN THOUGH ITS NOT EVEN ENABLED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! This glitch or bug is so annoying.... it been happening for a while and no matter how much I try to fix this, it’s getting more annoying and worse. I tried turning it on and then off to see if it’ll just go away, nothing happens, just the same result just like in the first place it happened. Tried removing and downloading back the app, same results. Turning off and on my phone, same results.... I’m getting very frustrated and annoyed with this bug and the other bugs that’s been going on! The other bugs, I can deal with but this new one is annoying like crazy!!! PLEASE FIX THIS BUG OR GLITCH! NOT ONLY THAT, FIX THE OTHERS TOO!!!!
iOS 11 fix!!
by thumbutts on 2017/09/20 02:53
Now with newest update when I rotate phone to make big screen it doesn’t flip to make big screen. I push the option for big screen that’s at the bottom right corner and it enlarges screen but only upside down and not the other way. So volume buttons are only on the bottom to make big screen and no longer able to be used with volume buttons on the top. Not very convenient. Update : I had the lock screen button on to keep it from rotating!!! Lol oops it was nothing to do with update or your app!! Still amazing !!!
Major Bugs
by johnIennon on 2017/10/22 14:02
Ever since the app has been updated, there have been many bugs added to it. First of all, videos will randomly pause and freeze up my entire phone. I have to actually get out of the app and close it out just to avoid the freeze (which happens again). Secondly, there are times when I click the ‘full screen’ button, and for some reason it takes the whole video and shifts it, so I can only see a mostly black screen and some of the video playing. I usually have to close out the app and restart it entirely. The app will also crash on me randomly, which gets extremely annoying. Please fix these bugs. Until then, I’ll probably avoid using the app for a little while.
Helpful
by Aliens3118 on 2017/11/10 00:44
Even though their might be some drama you could avoid that. There are many videos on there that can teach you anything you could think of! Reading, how to draw something, bake or even how to sew. You could also find things to help you in life that teach you things. It is good entertainment for kids while you are out and about doing things so they could watch something. This is a pretty good app to get! There could be a few things that could be fixed but everything has flaws and this is what reviews are for. At least try it for 3 days you could learn new things you never knew!
Busted circa iOS 11 update.
by Sai Co. on 2017/11/14 23:40
- SEVERE CONNECTIVITY PROBLEMS associated specifically with this app on both carrier networks and WIFI. Other apps will connect just fine during YouTube’s frequent bouts of “CONNECT TO THE INTERNET”. - When a video does successfully load, there’s only about a 50% chance the description, thumbnails, and comments section will also load. - Videos longer than ten minutes tend to NOTICEABLY DE-SYNCH VIDEO AND AUDIO OVER TIME. A quick double-tap-rewind usually matches them back together, but this kind of bug is inexcusable on app whose main function is playing video. (Check the default frame rate.) - Frequent random errors when trying to add videos to Watch Later. You’ll scroll thirty videos down before the app tells you there was an issue, making you have to scroll back up and find it again.
Please.
by colorfullights123 on 2017/10/05 14:12
Please please please take out the stupid skip buttons that appear on the screen when you're watching a video. What in the actual- does that do. Skipping a video is not that important that it needs its own button on screen. If I could count how many times I have accidentally hit the skip button while I was trying to rewind/fast forward or use some of the other controls, it would annoy me greatly, even more so than I am now. If I could count the collective time that I have spent trying to get back to my video I accidentally skipped out of and then trying to hit the back button and failing and researching for the video in the YT search bar I would die. So please and thanks, take out the skip buttons that appear on the screen, the pause button is okay though.
Update gone wrong?
by Cookiemonsterpw on 2017/09/25 19:03
These last few updates I've been having problems with the videos I'm watching. When I go onto another app and come back the previous video I was watching suddenly disappears and goes back to the home page. Weird thing is that I'm not even gone for that long. But before the updates no matter how long I was gone the video was there for me to view when I got back. Now I'm having a different problem where I can't log into my account, I've tried various passwords, even changed it! Entering the changed password it will not let me log in onto my account whatsoever. Appreciate what y'all are doing just a few bugs that can't be fixed! Good luck to all of you.
Broken Comment Section
by somanywonders on 2017/10/04 14:35
I just updated and now my comment section is very buggy and broken. I like to read comments as I was a video out of habit, but sometimes i accidentally click on a comment and I'm taken to the thread. Before, i would have no problem and could just exit out but the update brought in a bug where i can't exit out of the comment. I'm stuck on a comment where i can't scroll to read the replies or exit out of the thread. Sometimes i would think i clicked on another comment when trying to exit, but i still have the same problem. I have to swipe away the video if i want to have a chance of looking at the comments. Hopefully this bug is squashed soon.
Please fix comment replies!
by Abbey .3. on 2017/10/22 23:03
Sometimes when I click on a comment to see the replies nothing shows up even though it says that there are comments. Also I don’t really like how the keyboard pops up after touching a comment because sometimes I accidentally touch a comment or just want to read the replies and the keyboard shows up and blocks my view, a good way to fix this would be to have the keyboard show up after you press the write a comment button, but it could just be me finding this annoying. Other than that I’ve been having no issues with the app :)
Latest update did something to the playback quality
by TruPinoy122 on 2017/10/04 19:32
the app was just recently updated, and now when i play videos ( and i tried it on a couple of videos just to be sure ) the video playback is not in sync with the audio. kinda like what we used to get on those old “martial arts” movies lol...you see the mouth move but the audio is behind. well whats happening is kinda like that but in reverse. audio is fine but the video playback is lagging. i deleted the app the reinstalled it twice. i know its not my wifi connection, im pushing 150mb download speed and my currently device is the iphone 7 plus (128gb). Again never had this issue until the latest update. just wanted to let the devs know is this is something that coming up.
Great, except for 2 bugs
by MinecraftDash23 on 2017/10/08 16:46
The app works well, but there’s two annoying bugs. Sometimes, when I go into landscape too fast, the video will just become a small rectangle in the bottom left hand corner, and I have to rotate it twice to get it to come back. In addition, when I tap on a quality setting (default is 360p, what?), I have to keep on pressing the 10 second skip buttons back and forth about 10 times before the quality changes. I can tell because it looks much sharper. Annoying, but still better than the mobile browser version.
Bug that needs fixing
by Tankman6394 on 2017/10/18 21:48
I’ve had this app for a very long time, not sure what happen whether it was a new update to the application or the IOS but now there is a bug which freezes the visual part of the video but the audio continues. After about 10-30sec the video updates itself and jumps to the correct portion of the video. Also sometimes it exits full screen mode when this occurs. I’ve uninstalled the app twice now and the problem is reoccurring. I’m leaving a 3* rating not for the quality of the app itself but so this comment may be noticed by Google. Thank you. P.S I will adjust the rating once the bug is fixed.
Screen freezes in full-screen mode.
by ThanEspo on 2017/10/23 01:12
This has only been occurring for me after the most recent update. At the slightest provocation, such as tilting back to the smaller screen, pressing the pause button or time skipping, the screen will completely freeze while the audio keeps playing. This will last anywhere from 10 seconds to over a minute. Not only that, but it can also lock the current frame, so even when the screen unfreezes and I’m able to interact with other things, the video is still stuck on that same frame. Switching videos doesn’t even fix this problem either! This has become a common occurrence. By that I mean upwards of 5 times per 20 minute video. Please address this as soon as possible.
Amazing but here is the thing
by XxEpicPlayzxX on 2017/11/16 03:26
So this app is great. Not much bugs. Here is the thing. You can't add videos in comments. I see a lot of people saying there is bugs but I think it's because of storage. I am rating this 5 stars because I basically can't live without this. One bug is that when you are watching a video, the video stops but he sound keeps on playing. Another bug is that u just lag out. Therefore, this app needs some improvement but besides that, it's pretty good. Please fix these little bugs. Thank you.
Two main complaints
by AshTheEmoBoy on 2017/09/15 01:57
1) There's nowhere for me to copy a link. If I go to my browser, it forces me into the app, and the app doesn't allow me to copy a link to share in specific places or to save to my phone for later. If I delete the app, I can pull it up with the browser and just copy it from there. 2) If I'm watching a video that's 30-45 minutes long in the app, I am interrupted and bombarded with ads. I have to wait for the "skip ad button" before going back to what I was doing. If I watch the same video in the browser, there are either no ads, or only ads at the beginning. If you interrupt my video with an ad, I hate you. One star for these two things causing the app to be unusable when the browser version is so much better.
Just a little more..
by FluffyDoughnuts on 2017/11/10 20:04
Hey Yt you're a good use but I have some things to talk about. First name changing, I would like if you could be alowed to change your name a bunch, because 90 days takes almost a year and I don't like that so if you could fix that thx. Second I would like to know how to change your name, but not have any spaces it would help if I knew how to do that. Thx for reading if you did I hope these two things I don't like get fixed. I'm glad that I like this app but thats what needs to be fixed. Thanks Again Yt
It’s great and all, but...
by LeMakna on 2017/10/11 03:16
I can not thank the developers of this app enough for the effort they put into it. It’s easy to use interface and compatibility with various devices is astounding. However, there one problem: why is this app rated 17+? I understand the potential risks that come with not including the rating, but I use this app for almost ALL of my schoolwork, whether it’s research, presentations, or feedback. So why am I not allowed to view comments? Or access certain videos (ie certain news footage, etc.) It just isn’t fair. Anyway, thanks for reading, and keep up the good work.
Very good and practical but some bugs and issues
by Ninjham on 2017/11/08 04:29
The app is very good for watching videos but sometimes the screen won’t let me scroll, the quality at the beginning of a video will ALWAYS be at its lowest setting even though it could easily be higher and sometimes will just stay low, will open some random thing I wasn’t even close to tapping by, when I scroll and stop my finger while still holding down the scrolling will be all jittery, or the screen will be unresponsive completely. I would also like a dark mode like on the computer.
