Feature suddenly stopped working
by Sammycat2005 on 2019/03/25 07:27
Versions 14.10 & 14.11 The issue that YouTube has is still not fixed. I can’t stand this problem with the “upload date” search filter! When are you going to fix it? Version 14.09 I just installed the latest update 5 days ago. At first everything was working like it should, but after a few days, without any update or any sort of visual reaction, a search feature suddenly stopped working. The feature that is not working is the filter called “upload date”. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, I logged out out to see if it was my account, I tried using a desktop web browser instead of the app, and I tried using YouTube on many different devices. Nothing worked. I use this feature every day, but since it stopped working, now I have to scroll endlessly to find even one video that was made recently. So far though, I found nothing. What do I have to do to find more recent videos now?
Annoying

Always have always will
by Madwyt3hnky on 2019/03/25 05:45
I always have and I always will use YouTube. I love it. However, recently I have had some issues with the app in regards to playing music and the app crashes. Also, when playing a song not all the buttons will load. Finally the song will continue to restart over and over again without even touching it. Just an FYI I am an IOS beta tester, this may or may not be a problem but figured I would inform.
Good

Disappointed in the future for YouTube.
by dopsbsk on 2019/03/25 05:16
I’m a full time YouTube creator and very disappointed in the development of the platform. Disabling comments on channels like Special Books Special Kids is such a bad move. Please change this.

Search Filters Not Working!
by Matthew Hajjar-Betters on 2019/03/25 05:09
A recent problem I’ve noticed with the Youtube app on iOS is that the search filter feature, for some odd reason, doesn’t seem to be working right. I tried searching for certain recent videos through the search filter, “Upload Date”, but all that happens is showing me videos under the default search filter, “Relevance”. Has anyone else noticed this issue? If so, can this be fixed with a future update? Thanks a lot!
Sort feature is broke
by Dexxtrixx on 2019/03/25 05:05
I noticed lately when I search for video and choose sort by recently upload date, the results are not acknowledged. It shows things from 2-3yrs ago with a few 2 day ago and 4 mos ago sprinkled randomly in no particular order. Very frustrating when you're looking for a certain video.
Love it

Patriots United.
by Marielle Frances on 2019/03/25 04:42
What I love about YouTube is that it provides a way to unite Patriots who love this Country. The platform gives Patriots a voice. Mainstream media has created a false narrative and have tried to depict Patriots according to their false narratives. We know the truth about ourselves - that we love our Country, we love all races, we love Israel, we want people to come into our Country legally, we want our children and our cities to be safe. We are Christians who seek to love all people, people of every nation, color and creed. We are inclusive and tolerant. But we also love lawfulness, justice and truth. This is who we are, and YouTube let’s us share who we are with others. So please do not censor us. We want to be a voice that lifts everyone up.

YOUTUBE BELIEVES IN CENSORSHIP!!
by Saint Movius on 2019/03/25 04:39
YouTube used to be so cool, but now they want to control what you watch. Just try to find a video about UFO’s, 911, or any other questionable subject and the only thing you’ll get is what the mainstream sources (CNN, FOX, Etc.) want to show you. And by the way, they’re the same sources that our own President accuses of reporting Fake News. YouTube has taken away freedom of speech!! If I could give 0 ⭐️ ‘s that is exactly what I’d give them!!

How could anyone with the slightest understanding of free speech give more than one star? That being if you let the powers that censor anyone’s voice, even though you disagree with, cause we this happens soon you’ll be next sooner rather than later. Ok so yes I still watch you tube there’s lots of great info on here. But just know if it is trending it’s either videos the masses enjoy cause there brains are mush or it’s cause google is push artificially

So I have a YouTube channel and it is really hard (for me) to create channel art. It’s always either too big, or too small. Even when It is the exact size it recommends it always says that my photo is too small. Otherwise, I haven’t had any problems with this app.

Aside from the occasional ad playing from the home page and following you through the app, it works mostly well. Very frustrating that it defaults videos to 480p or 720p. I’ve got 150mbps WiFi, it can handle 1080p.

When it does load it says error and the video will play but only the sound and it just shows the thumbnail and if you go out of full screen and back 10 seconds later it happens again and again and again for the all of the video.

Search filters Upload date not working
by Bighomiebarry on 2019/03/24 23:11
Every time I search a video then try to add search filters for upload date it doesn’t work. Before when I search for this week I’ll show video that’s a year ago instead of the week I asked for. Fix this issue so I can enjoy the videos.
Downloader beware.
by Jstarr512 on 2019/03/24 23:07
Love how this thing pushed through a $45 a month subscription on me. Thankfully I caught it and cancelled it. I would rate it higher if they had been more explicit with “Hey, you are going to be charged $45 a month, so you understand this.” I’m sure there was a warning message, but it must have been very subtle.

Why 1 star? (Now 5 stars again)
by Babybird phone on 2018/12/15 05:17
*Update* Just tried the most recent version and all of my complaints were addressed. The settings I wanted are now available. If the below annoyed you too, tap your profile picture and go to settings where you can fix all those annoying things! Thank you, Google! *Previous version* The automatic playing of video thumbnails while scrolling through the list of videos. That's honestly the sole reason for me giving the lowest possible rating. What an abominable waste of bandwidth! Not only that, but there's no option to make it stop! Ever! It just sits there and keeps right on playing whether it makes you want to throw your phone at Google's head or not. That is the single WORST "feature" ever! Google, did all the smart people who once worked for you quit and move on to greener pastures? You used to know and care how not to annoy all of your products so they didn't migrate to other platforms to be bought by different advertisers. Remember the 1990s and early 2000s when advertising had lost its collective minds and threatened to destroy all the value in the internet, so you came along and introduced ethics and respect for those being advertised to and the internet took off and became an amazing place? I 'member! Now you're just slowly morphing into the great beast everyone heralded you for slaying. It's not good. Please go back to being the Google of old. Either that or just cease to exist already.
Form over function
by Branthony67 on 2018/11/09 14:47
This app looks great. This app is not very useful at times and has a number of critical functionality issues and bugs that need to be addressed. Two of which affect my experience with the app extremely adversely. When viewing a playlist and scrolling through recommended videos, the scroll function will freeze and force you to either select a certain video and then go back to the video you were on or minimize your current video and then being it back up, to re-enable scrolling. When saving videos to a playlist, outside of another existing playlist, the app will automatically add the video to the last playlist that you added a video to, which includes the “watch later” playlist, and will require users to wait for a delayed prompt to manually reassign the video to a different playlist. The function of manually reassigning videos may occasionally fail to work correctly and require the user to remove the video from its “saved” state and save it again and attempt to reassign the video with the same prompt that had just failed to work. These are two of many glaring functionality issues with the app that users will not encounter when viewing on a normal computer. These obvious glaring issues, among others, could have been addressed long ago and could have been easily avoided with even a small QA team that had been given half competent directions.

I don’t know if my phone hasn’t updated it until now or if this is just now happening but when I click to listen to my music playlist it shows the videos in the order they’re usually in when not on shuffle like it used to. But when I click the shuffle button to start it shows the order that it’s shuffled so that I know what the next song will be. There’s no problem with that but the irritating part is that when I find the song I want to listen to and turn the shuffle off, it doesn’t revert back to playing in order like it used to. It continues to play that song and then play the next song on the shuffle list, not on the next song that would normally play if it wasn’t on shuffle. Now, I don’t mind listening to my music on shuffle, that’s the whole point of shuffle, but I have a rather large playlist for songs and sometimes I’m looking for a specific group of songs that are next to each other in the playlist. Because of my having a large playlist, I used the shuffle feature to find the songs I want and then turn the shuffle off to listen in the normal order rather than scrolling through hundreds of songs to find the right ones. The feature of it reverting back after clicking to turn the shuffle off is helpful when I’m looking for specific songs but it’s hard to do that now that shuffle no longer does that.
App is old and clunky
by Phoenix1887 on 2019/02/17 20:44
Love the concept obviously as a video service, I even pay for premium. But I can’t give five stars to an old clunky app that needs to be redesigned. It shouldn’t take three difficult clicks to change the playback speed. You have to click a tiny menu accessible in the corner of the screen then click an option in a drop-down menu then select another option in a small drop-down menu. It always astounds me how these companies who have been around for longer than the iPhone has existed have these old clunky apps they never redesign and innovate to accommodate for the new technology they develop or that comes out... Play back speed should be adjustable straight from the main screen. You should be able to easily dial in increments from 1/8x up to even. I frequently change playback speed multiple times as I go through a video. Another simple feature it needs is a queue. It’s insane how I’ll be going through a list while watching a video and I can’t even queue videos to play up, only add to a playlist. Excuse me is this the year 2019??? What the hell is wrong with the app design team did they time travel out of this dimension already???? Update your freaking app with basic usability features for heaven’s sake you’ve had more than enough time to do this.
Video Preview annoyances
by Gamer4Ever!!! on 2019/02/05 20:46
First of all, I do enjoy this app. It is convenient and I use it a lot. The only problem I have with it is what I found out recently. When on the feed page, you can preview a video by hovering over it, which is a good feature, but why does it go to my watch history? If I didn’t click on the video, it shouldn’t be in my history. The other problem just started happening yesterday, where I would “preview” a video by hovering over it, scroll down to another video and tap on it to actually watch it. This activates the audio, but not just for the video I want to watch, but also for the previewed video I hovered over prior to tapping on the one I wanted to watch. So audio for two videos are playing at the same time. It is annoying because I have to exit the video, hover over the one I want to watch so it starts previewing, then click on the video so I don’t have two audios playing simultaneously. Sometimes it tricks me into believing that there is a bug in the video’s audio itself or someone is talking in the background, but that isn’t the case. Please fix this bug.
PLEASE READ AND TELL ME A FIX
by Haris04 on 2018/02/27 12:26
So when I look at the thumbnail for a video in my home page it automatically starts playing where the thumbnail was with no volume but with captions, and it goes to my history. I can’t even choose if I want it to play or not and I don’t want some of that in my history! And the worst pat is that when I click on a video and drag it down then scroll through my home page, a video starts playing from a thumbnail and the screen of the video that I clicked on is completely black! So then I have to close the video and go to history and watch it from there. Please tell me if I can fix this or turn it off. Also sometimes when I click on a video it buffers at 5 or 6 seconds and it won’t load so I close the video and the app then open it again and it still won’t load after 5 or 6 second!! Then I have to watch another video and come back to the video that won’t load. Then it finally works. (This might just be a problem with my connection/data but I don’t think so because I have a brand new iPhone X and still have the same problem on data)
Very good app, just a couple of suggestions
by elenaCaballero on 2018/05/01 05:03
I use this app every single day, and it is honestly very good. I would just like to give a couple of suggestions and report a bug. The suggestions are: the ability to like a video from landscape mode, I personally love to add to watch later and then watch all my vids one after the other, but to give a like I have to go to portrait mode, I'd like to have that ease of liking while in landscape. The other suggestion is that I would like to add to watch later directly from my notifications! I hope you take these in consideration. As for the bug, I don't know if it's just my iPhone 6s plus, but sometimes when I'm watching in landscape mode and I tap the screen to show the controls, the app freezes my phone. I can't tap anything, I can't press the home button, instead I have to press the lock button multiple times to lock the phone and then unlock it to be able to fix the issue. Please look into this, it doesn't happen all the time and the app doesn't crash, but it annoys me quite a bit...
It’s ok but needs a lot of work!
by Olivia Winslow on 2017/11/29 01:29
I love watching family vloggers and even listening to music! But there are some issues I’m running into here’s #1. The videos load ok at times at other times videos will stop and buffer, sometimes sit and buffer for 2 minuets and then continue playing. #2. At times videos keep switching different quality and won’t stay locked on to the default quality setting which is 1080p but it keeps switching between 144p to 360p then back to 1080p. #3 the app crashes and when it occurs it even causes my whole phone to crash and lock up and not do anything so I press the home button 3 times to gain access to my phone again to close the app completely out and restart it but it doesn’t crash every often it happens maybe every 3 or 4 times I open the app to watch the family vloggers! So all in all, all of these things are annoying and if these things can be fixed I would find it to be better then before! Some will say no it’s your internet, I say explain to me why I’m having these issues with the app and internet if my internet speed is 1 gig per minute!
Over a decade of never getting it right.
by 76514567890 on 2019/03/01 02:07
Every time there is a new update, I start getting these little errors that pop up as my videos crash that say “experiencing difficulties?”. The answer, besides the everyday usual incompetence of this app, is no. It happens the same way, with the same choppy cut sequence every time. Seems deliberate. Videos you click on don’t display in watch history until after the ad has finished. So if the app has a problem like it usually will, or you have to walk away from your device, you can’t find the video again. Can’t right a comment and rotate the screen without it freaking out and having the word box disappear or freezing while the keyboard changes color to a dark gray. Thought a white play button was a stupid idea? Well here, let me dim the background so you can’t see what’s going on! To top it all off, half the time when the screen is rotated and the switched back, it shrinks to 1/4th full screen and requires a restart. These are problems on all of mine and my friends devices. We’ve a game of see what will break next. At least there incompetence is good for something. Most of the time I can use a simple trick to completely skip all ads..
Video overlay bugs and awkward UI design. But the app itself is still convenient enough.
by The Other Whey Protein on 2018/10/27 14:37
At various points watching a video the overlay will flash, partially blocking my view with the pause/play controls, video progress slider, and various other controls while also dimming the video itself until I either wait for it to leave or tap in an unused space. In terms of user interface, i find it unnecessarily difficult to engage the ‘options’ control (in the bottom right corner of a thumbnail) while browsing. I usually attempt to use this feature when trying to add a video that I’ve not watched to my watch later list. More often than not, however, despite pressing where I need to, I’ll be thrown into the video instead. It’s like trying to click something pixel perfect with your thumb. Thirdly, and this is a personal gripe, but MAYBE not showing me the same advertisement five times in a video would be nice? If I’m gonna be assaulted by them, may as well have variety. Seeing the same ‘Wow, You Can Really Dance’ Tik Tok commercial really wears down my patience, to put it lightly.
How to get 5 star reviews
by LA in Philly on 2018/09/15 06:45
Gave a low score this time due to a couple of reasons. The app is giving me problems this evening. I can’t switch my account because each time I try the app just shuts down. I’ll give a better review after I can watch a full video on each of my accounts. Additionally, I think you need to give one of your top content creators a medical leave of absence. It would be a very nice gesture if you paid for her health insurance &/or other medical expenses as well so she can get help at a top eating disorder treatment center ASAP. She’s a young sweet lady and she deserves help. I think a lot of people would really respect the humanitarian side of the company if you did something like that. Her videos are disturbing, dangerous and they’re upsetting an abounding number of people, many of who are young impressionable children. I don’t need to say her name; that’s how bad this situation has become. Please do the right thing; if not for her, then for all the others getting influenced negatively without even realizing. I seriously do not want to believe our society has become so lowbrow and uncultivated that we would accept a young girl slowly committing suicide in front of an enormous audience all over the internet.
A Small Detail That’s Driving Me Crazy.
by JSKEJHWKWJEKDKSKLDJD... on 2018/12/07 02:30
Will still rate it 5 Stars because this is definitely one of my most used apps, and I’m sure plenty of other people can say the same. Despite how great YT is, there’s this one “lag” (I don’t quite know what to call it). Half the time I go to the comments and want to look at the replies under a certain comment, it won’t let me view them. I’ll press the “view replies” button a large number of times but quite literally nothing happens. Only way I myself can fix it, is to refresh the tab. Then when that happens sometimes I can’t even find the comment again. Even in general that is just an irritating thing to deal with. However, this could just be a problem with my phone. I’m not smart enough to tell the difference haha. If you have managed to stumble upon this review, just wanted to say thanks for the hard work, but also please acknowledge my frustration lol. -Syd
Amazing app, just needs a few fixes
by Boedinator on 2018/06/03 21:33
I love this app a lot and use it literally every day, it is absolutely amazing but I feel there could be some improvements made: 1. I keep having a glitch problem where I’ll press play on a video and the audio will start but the screen is frozen and I’ll have to press the home and power button like crazy to get it to stop then it takes a while for me to get my phone on again to actually watch the video 2. After watching a video sometimes it has this “ghost” effect where the replay and other options are see through or even doubled and I can’t turn my phone to get out of full screen mode so I have to do what I do to fix problem 1 where I push buttons like crazy 3. So we are now able to adjust video speed but It would also be nice if we had the loop option like when you right click on desktop mode, also if we could put in what times to start and stop the loop that would be great, if not then just a simple loop option would suffice 4. Sometimes I’ll press like on a video and it’s will like it but if I rewatch the video later it’ll say I haven’t liked it yet and I keep having to re-like videos when I watch them Those are just some things that come to mind at the moment that I think could be improved upon but besides that the app is great, I don’t remember at the moment if there were any other problems but I do know that the ones I listed should be fixed soon because they are a bother to deal with at times
Dont ruin something that’s already broken
by MichelleeRuiz on 2019/01/06 08:06
Update: it continues to do what ive mentioned previously and now it sometimes wont even connect to my chrome cast. So, this app had already not worked well for me when it came to staying connected to the chromecast but at least before if it would stop working (i.e. when I turn my phone screen off & go back to the app & try to play/pause it wouldnt work) but at least I could still skip through my videos on my queue & it wouldnt completely disconnect which is what happens now. It doesnt even take me turning my screen off, I could just be scrolling down my subscriptions or a playlist or even just scrolling through what I just searched & it will completely disconnect from my chromecast but will still be playing on my TV. I have to close down the whole app & then try again. If I try to just connect it back to the chromecast without closing the app entirely, it will just say it’s connecting to my cast but my queue will be empty & it doesnt show what I am watching because it is still casting the video I was watching. It was better before & even then it wasnt great. Fix it please!!
i love it! one annoying problem...
by Web259 on 2019/02/13 03:54
i love this app, i use it almost every day. the one issue i have is that (it didn’t used to be this way, but it’s been doing it and won’t go away) when i have a video and want to make it full screen, it doesn’t matter if i click the full screen button or tilt my phone, it glitches and only shows me a corner of the video. it cuts the screen into fourths basically and the top left one is the bottom of the video and the other pieces are just gray or something. it’s SUPER frustrating and won’t go away. a few months ago i didn’t have this problem. then a while back i had a similar issue coming out of full screen. it would cut off half of my screen when i minimized the video by tilting my phone upwards and i would have to either close out of the app, or swipe down from my video to fix it. i love the content, accessibility, recommended, etc. but these two things affect like everything i watch. it may just be me but it’s been so annoying!
Only gets two star because of the content creators.
by Gert2341 on 2018/05/28 13:44
The two stars is for my favorite content creators who the Susan whatever deems bad and will don’t deserve money. One reason she got that job is probably just because she was a women. I bet she did many other things but being a women helps. The promote leftist views by putting left wing videos on the home page and on trending such as Jimmy Kimmel. Apparently every video that get 200,000 views in two days is trending. Every time someone such as Bill Wurtz posts it is trending because people like him and he doesn’t post very often. They also censor right-wing views by removing the videos demonetizing them and not putting their videos in people’s sub boxes. Also they change things that content creators don’t want changed and makes it harder for fans to find videos. So overall I give it a two star just because of the content on the site.
It’s great and extremely entertaining
by Hello ___ on 2018/12/29 17:42
If your looking on a app to keep you entertained for hours and hours, I suggest you get this app. And if you want to be a youtuber, it’s very easy to upload videos. Also if you have about 10,000 subscribers you can interact with your fans by posting a message on a community tab. Though, if your under the age of 13, or your child is under the age of 13, Do not get this app! They’re many people who create very inappropriate videos or make sex jokes, There is some porn on it and very bloody pictures. Be careful on here. They’re is a lot of rude people on this app. Though if your child is over the age, it’s fine, the app is very entertaining and I promise you they won’t get bored. -Suggestion for this app- On the Community app, you can comment, and obviously the creator can like or reply to that comment. But, they can’t reply back to the creator. Can you please make it so we can reply back to the creator? And that other people can reply on their comments?
Incredible Resource for Knowledge and Entertainment
by 🤔😉🤗 on 2018/09/06 04:55
I love to read about traditional and Non Traditional subjects sparked by my Upbringing and influences. In reading I don’t have time to read subjects varied from my likes dislikes and opinions, However, on You tube I can also find things that are not necessarily my opinion and either learn or retreat from said information quickly as I browse through numerous subjects that may have been a college elective or an older sibling or parent turning me on to sci fi or other varied and adventurous subjects or my passion for History and Various Forms Of Music That I experienced and reminds me of times or passions I share with friends and acquaintances that may have had similar or different experiences. I also like the fact that I can benefit from friends acquaintances experiences and knowledge that I can grow from or Not. It’s a brilliant tool and I am happy to live in the communication age as a marketeer and Entrepreneur, who can see inside and outside the box, without Judgement.
Censorship
by jastquentino on 2018/10/02 11:28
I have used YT over 5 years now and I used to enjoy the free flow of information and random vids that were selected with an algorithm based on my preferences and interests. I loved YT and listening to content creators of all stripes and sorts changed me. I can’t believe you people censored Alex Jones and so many others. I listened in the beginning of my political journey, but he is more entertainment than news. I m appalled to see what has happened to YT in the last year with censorship of political ideas and commentary. Just because YOU don’t have the same political persuasions as me, does NOT mean that YOU get to determine what content I expose myself to. I know all you quivering lefties are still suffering with your trump derangement syndrome and can’t understand how the country voted for who they did- I recommend you leave your privileged Bubble of google and find out. Yes, there is crap and random BS but as a consumer I have the pleasure and privilege of using my critical thinking to intellectually dispose of ideas that I find distasteful. And I do. I think that having my political exposure censored by people who’s job is TECHNOLOGY not social engineering a big problem.
Bugs
by rbelcher98 on 2018/09/16 04:32
There are a few bugs that really are getting old and need to be fixed, but a lot of people have already pointed out the majority of the ones that I’m having issues with, so I’m not going to bother complaining about things that are already well known issues. That being said, I didn’t see anyone else mention the main one that I’m having issues with, and it’s gone on so long that it is incredibly frustrating for me to watch videos on the app now. When I’m watching a video, the transparent screen that that allows you to pause, fast forward, rewind, etc. (it normally comes up if you click the screen) continually pops up, on its own, every 15-30 seconds, and it is extremely frustrating. I watch a lot of 15+ minute videos, so you can imagine how annoying this gets after it happening that frequently. I would rate the app 5 stars if not for that, but because this is such an annoying bug I definitely can’t give that high of a rating while this is an ongoing issue.
Why change the 3 dots button????
by silver.&.silent on 2018/08/31 23:40
I would use this ALL the time to state if a video is not interesting or if I want to save for later. Now it is super small and you have to hold it down for that same menu to come up, turning an action that used to take no time at all into a frustrating and time consuming experience. If you tap on the three dots it just plays the video, what sense does that make if I’m trying to access the menu. This change happened without me even updating the app itself. Please change this back, there was no reason to do that. Also when a video finishes playing the next recommended videos pop up on the bottom of the screen making it hard to access the full screen button, so when I am trying to go in or out of full screen I almost always inadvertently press another video and then have to go all the way back out to get to what I was watching. Does anyone actually test these “features” before they are pushed out? ETA I just updated the app on my iPad and now the search doesn’t work, this is like a horrible joke. Rollback this update I can’t find anything useful about it.
Pure awesomeness but...
by slendypants on 2018/06/28 17:47
The app is unbelievably good and runs really well but here are the issues that NEED to be fixed: 1.the notification-the notification system use to work really well but nowadays it’s broken and it doesn’t notify the subscriber about the newest upload. 2.the lag-this problem is caused by disconnecting or lagging right when you click on the video, when this happens the video plays but with the quality taken down and the audio of the video not being set as the video(the video plays but the audio starts after a few seconds). 3.same problem but-this problem is basically the same but it happens during the video with no lag or disconnections. 4.comments-for some reason nowadays when you want to add a comment in the comment section there’s no problem but when you’ve added the comment and leave, after a few hours if you return to see your comment for a reason it’s not there. 5.basically the same with the likes-it’s just the same but when you like the video and leave and after a few hours you return the video isn’t liked by your account. That’s it, this is what I’ve been experiencing for the past couple of weeks. I apologize about the few grammar mistakes I’m not American or English so I’m sorry. I hope you read this and I hope that this helps you to fix these problems. ♥️♥️
I’ve never had problems with this app before so I’m kinda disappointed
by Lovelan💕 on 2018/06/06 17:57
Just today I was listening to music on the app and out of no where the screen turns black but the music continued to play. I then click out of what I was listening to and restarted my phone, that helped fix that problem but then I went to my like list (I mostly have music on it for easy access). So I started listening to the music on my like list and whenever a video is done playing it atomically changes to the next video on my like list like it supposed to but whenever it goes to the next video my my list it freezes but still the audio continues to play. I left my like list think that it was what was causing the problem but this happens every time the app changes videos....... ugh please fix this.
Strange status Bar glitch
by The One And Only The Prodigy! on 2018/03/31 14:21
Hi there… This app is great… But there is one problem… there is a strange status bar bug… lets say you are watching a video… And you want to check the time The time doesn't change… If you check the status bar while watching a video for example… Let's say I play a video that is 15 minutes long… At 9:31 AM and when that video is finished… It's already 9:47 AM unless… You exit out the video… The time still says 9:31 AM it'll be 5 o'clock in the afternoon and the status bar would still say 9:31 AM it's like… The clock got stuck The time doesn't change… Unless you restart the app… Or exit out the video also… Nothing in the status bar changes including the battery level The only way to see the correct time and all of the other information displayed you have to exit out the video And… For the iPad version if you select add to bye accident there is no cancel button it's been like that for three years please fix those issues… There really annoying
Issue with queued videos linked to another device via WiFi
by CplMSO on 2019/03/18 03:22
There’s still an issue when linking my phone with say my tv or a console. ANYTIME I would like to link my phone via WiFi with say my console as a remote and or to add more videos to my watch queue, I have to manually take it out of multitasking every single time I want to pair it with my console. Only after that, can I play and pause videos from there. If I recall right, two updates have since been pushed out for ‘maintenance and improvements’. I don’t know if those updates actually do anything significant to performance and functionality or if they’re just bs placebo updates cause this issue still persists. I’d send screen shots and log info through the feedback link in app (which I already have twice the best I could show what it is) but going through that feedback link does not allow for a screen shot of this issue that at least I’m dealing with. Please get on top of this issue, it’s irritating enough as it really seems like some fixed something that wasn’t broken.
Needs Some Improvements
by Rose Mairi on 2018/01/13 07:59
For the most part, this app works really well, but sometimes after a video ends while I have it on full screen, it freezes and stays black for a few seconds, which is a little odd. The only other problem I have is that when I pause a video to read something and have to tap the vid to get the white pause symbols out of the way, it glitches if I tap it twice too fast and the symbols freeze for a few seconds, which is aggravating and has been happening for a few months now. I’d really appreciate it if you guys could fix these two small issues. Other then that, everything else is great. Update: It doesn’t seem like any of the problems I mentioned have been fixed, as they’re still happening. Please fix those issues. Also, for some reason, this app just now closed on me and my phone turned off and immediately turned back on. I’m assuming it has something to do with the app itself. If so, please fix that problem.
Overall good app but there are some problems
by mgoldman78 on 2018/09/03 02:03
I use this app very often! But of course, any good thing also has some down sides. I think that you guys should ban the people who truly deserve it. And there are TONS out there who really need to get taken down(Mainly Logan and Jake Paul) also, I think the three dots by each video should be put in a different spot. Because if I am trying to press it, it will click on the video and I will have to try to tap on it repeatedly until it finally works. For example, say you see a video from a youtuber you dislike, you try to press the three dots to get the video off of there. But when you try to press it, it clicks on the video instead. You go back and try to do it again. But it clicks on the video once again. You do this repeatedly until it finally works. This has happened to me too often. But overall, this is a really well made app.
Some issues with the latest update
by Reality Macro on 2017/12/08 04:51
I use this app probably more than any other app on my iPhone. For the most part it’s really great, but not without flaws. Most of the videos displayed in the Home screen no longer show the video length timestamp in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail which is really irritating. It looks like all other views in the app show the timestamp, so hopefully it’s a bug that’s fixed ASAP. A couple random videos in the Home list show the timestamp while the other 95% do not, which makes no sense. Sometimes the video rotation gets stuck in landscape and will not revert back to portrait view, only the opposite landscape view. This has been a problem for a few months now, and the only way to fix it is to force quit the app. This is quite irritating. Finally, a good addition but extremely overdue feature is the ability to sort the Watch Later playlist. FINALLY this utterly BASIC feature exists. I have no idea why the Watch Later playlist worked so differently than regular playlists for so long, but that’s fixed now. The best addition from a few months ago was the feature of double-tapping to rewind and fast forward. Every video player needs this. It’s incredibly user friendly. It’s way better than the rudimentary 15-second skip buttons that many players now have.
Shuffle feature on playlists
by Ethan "Eman" on 2018/06/17 00:21
You had it all figured out in the last update, now it’s back to what it used to be, a useless feature... Who in their right mind would want a shuffle portion that only shuffles the first immediate 200 videos and actually physically shuffle them not even jump to a random song while keeping the playlist intact? That is my only issue other than making it so ads play on every video in a playlist rather than what it used to be if you kept watching you’d get less ads unless you physically chose the next song. Edit: To make matters worse you made it so when you do shuffle and hit he next button it doesn’t send you to for example: 3261, it just goes to the song right after it. Having a playlist that nears 5,000 songs I would like that the playlist doesn’t physically shuffle and just skips to different parts of the playlist like how any other app’s shuffle works.
Update gone wrong!
by Lilminimoges on 2017/12/07 06:03
The newest update of 2017 December. The video keeps switching to random videos during a video is going on. I cant watch ten seconds of video without it switching to another. So please fix this bug. Also fix your skip button. It’s showing up less and less. And when it does show up it’s for a 15 second video and not a thirty second video. I don’t know how many people have these problems, but it’s important to consider the viewers when you put a video in the link and can’t watch the video they want. I have many other problems to say, but that’s up to the media to explain not mine. ————————————————— This is a day after my complaint. The new new update to fix the switching the video to another video decreased of chance to another video. I don’t know if your still fixing the problem, but don’t rush to fix the problem. I know you do want to keep us satisfied, but rushing to fix problem is going to make it worse. So please fix the problem correctly by not rushing to conclusion of being fixed and being done.
A bug that needs to be fixed NOW!
by Jocelyn Rivera11272006NYC on 2018/01/02 20:57
I’ll be watching a video while charging my phone, so I have to turn my phone a specific way to watch in full screen. I’ll turn my phone and it will be UPSIDE DOWN! I try to fix it by exiting the app completely but then it happens again it is extremely irritating because my iPhone needs to charge so if you want me to use your app more often then you need to fix that so I don’t have to take an hour pause to let my phone charge. Other than that I love the app I wish it wouldn’t randomly quit on me mid video also, stop flagging random YouTubers they Are the only reason you are where you are today check if what you are striking then think why you are taking a innocent video down for doing absolutely nothing. To the people:If you want this app buy it however comma it has some flaws you can inspire others with your words but be careful of the audience you are posting to 👉🏼👉🏼
Gets worse and worse
by Roblox mobile on 2018/10/17 02:19
this app was great before the latest three or four updates. i used the app daily before those updates but when they installed the apps performance and my rating for it went downhill. cant have more than one of the same video in a playlist, thats terrible for my playlist of band music. app doesn't run properly even when on wifi after entering my own wifi zone. drains my phone and iPad battery even when there is only one video running. all in all i just think this app needs lots of help and taking off the latest three or four updates and im sure it will work perfectly and my rating will go back up. -EDIT app is just terrible now i cant even do anything in my own wifi zone or any other wifi zone. service on data or in wifi is just not up to date and its like watching tv in 1965. yall really need to get your crap together and fix this freakin app cause its just terrible now.
Pls Fix
by MomoMJS on 2018/05/04 23:57
I like the app overall. But there’s one problem that keeps occurring. Every time I press pause/play a lot of times, the app completely freezes up. All the buttons and stuff still work but the screen just stays the same and doesn’t respond to the buttons I’m pressing. For example, when the screen freezes up, when I press play the sound continues as if the video is still playing. But it is not matching with the screen and it just stays frozen. I can only turn my phone off. Even when I do that, when I try to turn the screen on, I have to wait about 10-20 seconds or even more for it to come back on. I don’t know if this is just my phone or the app. But I think it’s the app because this doesn’t happen with any of my other apps. So please fix this bug. Thanks!
Needs one thing..
by EndertheFox45 on 2019/02/23 18:21
This app is good, and the problem is very minimal but I feel very important and it annoys people no doubt. Im going to see a movie today. What does that have to do with this review you may ask? Well I was doing my usual scrolling through the videos and then I saw the ending clip for the movie I'm going to see and it spoil a big thing. Kinda upsetting seeing I have been trying desperately to avoid things like that. Anyways I'm sure it's happened to loads of other people and I want to change that. There should be a filter in settings (yes settings because that seems logical) that filters out actual clips of the movies with it on unless people actually search for it. This would exclude trailers. It may take a long time to add it in but it would be for the better.
I love this app, but...
by Junebaby1962 on 2018/03/23 00:48
This is my favourite app, but when I put my music playlist on shuffle, it will play maybe one or two songs. After those one or two videos, it will jump back to the second video on the list (it shows my videos in order even when it’s on shuffle) and it will play it over and over and over again. And when I skip it, it won’t even go to the next video, it will stay on that video. Also, sometimes when I turn on shuffle, it will show it in shuffle order, and it will have the perfect order, but when I listen to a few songs, it will start on the song I just listened to, and shuffle the whole thing again. I don’t know if it’s supposed to shuffle over and over, but I thought that I should mention it. But, please fix these possible bugs, because once again, this is my favourite app. Thank you!
One major bug
by Storm flare on 2018/10/15 21:47
I’ve had this app for quite a long time. Years, really. I haven’t had any major issues throughout, but recently I’ve had a bug where, for a specific few content creators, there’s a bug with ads that makes the actual video unwatchable. What happens is, I click on a video and it loads an ad. The ad then cuts and it changes to the video. This has happened, usually if there’s a loading error with ad. However, then the video cuts back to the ad, which doesn’t load, and cuts back to the video, and so on and so forth. I thought it was just a one-off, so I tried another video by the same person. Same issue. I restarted my phone and the app, no fix. I came back days later, same issue with the same person. I’ve only had it happen with two creators, but they are ones I would regularly watch so I’m a little annoyed.
I shared with her the same problem
by Aloreni on 2019/01/30 11:48
So when I look at the thumbnail for a video in my home page it automatically starts playing where the thumbnail was with no volume but with captions, and it goes to my history. I can't even choose if I want it to play or not and I don't want some of that in my history! And the worst pat is that when I click on a video and drag it down then scroll through my home page, a video starts playing from a thumbnail and the screen of the video that I clicked on is completely black! So then I have to close the video and go to history and watch it from there. Please tell me if I can fix this or turn it off, Also sometimes when I click on a video it buffers at 5 or 6 seconds and it won't load so l close the video and the app then open it again and it still won't load after 5 or 6 second!! Then I have to watch another video and come back to the video that won't load. Then it finally works. (This might just be a problem with my connection/data but I don't think so
This is ridiculous
by Doopdoopdo on 2018/06/05 06:09
All of the sudden my homepage has become FILLED with content I have never shown an interest in, channels I have never watched, and most of it isn't even "suggested" because of anything I watch either (which I would know since I just had to go through 20+ suggestions and mark *Not Interested*). I don't know if this is content you're being paid to push, but for an app where I get unsubbed from the creators I love, have trouble finding their videos, and don't always get notified about channels I have notifications turned on for this is inexcusable. Especially with rumors going around that the sub page might not be chronological much longer, how are we supposed to see the content we actually WANT and SUBBED TO? Fix your app, or at the very least stop pushing this random nonsense on your user base. If you guys weren't the only option I (and a lot of others) would have moved on A LONG time ago.
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.
Unwanted change
by βryan on 2018/01/03 15:06
Can you please switch to the old card view when you pull down videos to search for others? It used to just fill the bottom right, but now it fills the entire bottom as an elongated card instead of just the video, and it even makes the video part smaller and chops off some of the top and bottom of the video which I dislike. I don’t need to have the whole title down there. Go back to the old style and make the card of variable size depending on the video. I noticed that videos are actually 4:3 or of other lengths when viewing them in portrait mode now, instead of always showing in a 16:9 area with letterboxing. I absolutely love that change and it would be super amazing if you could implement the old pull-down card version with that addition. I really prefer swiping to the left to dismiss those video cards instead of down with the new style as well.
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.
Notifications Glitch? READ AND FIX
by from Licoricewand ;) on 2018/09/22 00:01
This is the most useful app out there for many things, but idk I just don’t think I want to rate 5 stars. ANYWAYS. There’s a glitch, I’m not sure what really but every time I get a notification about a replied comment or someone commenting on my videos (which is a big deal as I’m a small channel with not even 30 subs) I tap to go to the comment and it’s gone. Nothing. I thought the first few times they deleted their comment but now I don’t think it’s that. After I tap on it there’s no finding it. If this is a glitch or happening to anybody else PLEASE FIX IT. I spend most of my time watching the same peoples videos and I leave a comment on every one, I have to be able to respond or like. And I can’t do that if it’s gone. Please fix this glitch. I’ll change it back to four or five stars if this is fixed or explained.
Fix the playlists
by ZestfulElf on 2018/07/22 16:18
I have a few playlists with one of which being the default “watch later” playlist. My watch later playlist is full but sometimes I’ll still try to add things to it. A few days ago I tried to add a video to a playlist that I use when I teach my saxophone students different things and the video was automatically put into the playlist that I had last added something to, although I did not want to add it to this playlist. Last night I was trying to add a video to my watch later playlist and of course it just told me that there was an error. Now when I try to add any video to a playlist it will try to add it I my watch later and tell me that there is an error. The old system was much more time efficient for people like me who had more than a few playlists where they add videos every day.
Some issues on iPad
by Dude of Sandbox on 2018/05/05 06:41
It is a good platform for watching many varied videos, but suffers from some problems. -Commenting has issues. Sometimes a comment infinitely processes with the “loading” symbol. Other times, it’s an issue to click out of writing a comment. You usually are able to tap on the screen away from the comment typing box at any time to close it and return to the main interface, but sometimes it just doesn’t work and you must close the app in itself. Replying to comments almost always leaves a double reply, which is more of a visual glitch since it reappears when going back to the comment chain you had left a reply on. -Every video has a “Not interested” you can select. While watching a video, there is a recommendations bar at the right of the screen. The video at the very top of this bar does not have a Not interested selection, so if you do not like the video at all you will still get it recommended to you. -The app randomly crashes often -When scrolling through the play bar, most videos show you a small screenshot of what displays at that point in time of the video. Other videos do not have this. -Finally, this one isn’t an issue but could be useful. Advertising options, such as not immediately starting the video after an advertisement ends for more information.
Needs a little improvement
by Avi Avalos on 2017/12/23 16:31
I like the app it just has a few glitches that need to be fixed. When I start watching a video it takes forever to load than when it starts playing it stops about 10 seconds into the video and it says it’s loading when it’s not. I restart the video a few times and it stops at the same place so I close out of the video and try again. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn’t so I have to repeat the process multiple times. Another thing is that when there is an add it takes a really long time to load or it doesn’t load. I’m the middle of a video I close out then I have to repeat the process I do at the beginning. Than when it finally starts working correctly I have to find my place and that takes even longer to load. I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling but that doesn’t fix the problem.
Love YT but....
by Dugbuynjmede on 2019/01/01 18:13
I really do love YT. I appreciate more of the smaller channels than the popular ones. I have no interest in watching Pewdiepie or any other big youtuber. What I don’t understand is the algorithm of recommended videos. I hate sports but yet they get recommended to me. Why? Because maybe a video I watched has someone playing sports so you or a computer assumes I like to watch the NBA or the NFL? When I watch a video of someone vlogging and they might show their nephew I suddenly get recommended pregnancy journey or announcement videos! Why??? When I click that I’m not interested it’s back the next day. Some recommendations are spot on some I don’t understand. It’s probably the same computer the demonetizes depression videos but will monetize stupid ones. I wish this could be fixed but I doubt it.
Needs a back button!!!!!!!
by Raccoon T-Bone on 2018/10/05 04:21
The app works like a charm every time. It’s so simple that you really don’t ever have to think about it because there seems to never be any bugs whatsoever. However, it would be so helpful to have a back button. Sometimes you search out content and then take different suggested videos and then all of a sudden you accidentally tap a video with your big clumsy fingers voyeur video ends before you can replay part of it it takes you onto another one and you just want to go back to the last one you were on but instead you have to try to start over from your search and find your way back to the video that you may have accidentally dismissed, especially if you didn’t catch the title of your last video.
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 App - Needs 2 Important changes
by TechaddictATX on 2018/04/15 14:16
I use this app all the time and I love it. That being said, there are 2 major things I would like to see fixed. First, I would like to be able to have a search box when I’m looking at a specific channel, so I don’t have to search through all of YT for that channel’s specific video. It can even be a lot just to search through that channel’s content for an older video, let alone the entire platform. Second, I would appreciate it if YT didn’t restart so frequently, causing me to lose my place in my video, even after navigating away from the app after just a few minutes. I’ve taken to adding every video I don’t finish right away to the Watch Later list, which is a bit annoying. Other than that, I’m really liking all the recent updates and reorganization.

Feature suddenly stopped working
by Sammycat2005 on 2019/03/25 07:27
Versions 14.10 & 14.11 The issue that YouTube has is still not fixed. I can’t stand this problem with the “upload date” search filter! When are you going to fix it? Version 14.09 I just installed the latest update 5 days ago. At first everything was working like it should, but after a few days, without any update or any sort of visual reaction, a search feature suddenly stopped working. The feature that is not working is the filter called “upload date”. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app, I logged out out to see if it was my account, I tried using a desktop web browser instead of the app, and I tried using YouTube on many different devices. Nothing worked. I use this feature every day, but since it stopped working, now I have to scroll endlessly to find even one video that was made recently. So far though, I found nothing. What do I have to do to find more recent videos now?

I always have and I always will use YouTube. I love it. However, recently I have had some issues with the app in regards to playing music and the app crashes. Also, when playing a song not all the buttons will load. Finally the song will continue to restart over and over again without even touching it. Just an FYI I am an IOS beta tester, this may or may not be a problem but figured I would inform.

Search Filters Not Working!
by Matthew Hajjar-Betters on 2019/03/25 05:09
A recent problem I’ve noticed with the Youtube app on iOS is that the search filter feature, for some odd reason, doesn’t seem to be working right. I tried searching for certain recent videos through the search filter, “Upload Date”, but all that happens is showing me videos under the default search filter, “Relevance”. Has anyone else noticed this issue? If so, can this be fixed with a future update? Thanks a lot!
Sort feature is broke
by Dexxtrixx on 2019/03/25 05:05
I noticed lately when I search for video and choose sort by recently upload date, the results are not acknowledged. It shows things from 2-3yrs ago with a few 2 day ago and 4 mos ago sprinkled randomly in no particular order. Very frustrating when you're looking for a certain video.

Patriots United.
by Marielle Frances on 2019/03/25 04:42
What I love about YouTube is that it provides a way to unite Patriots who love this Country. The platform gives Patriots a voice. Mainstream media has created a false narrative and have tried to depict Patriots according to their false narratives. We know the truth about ourselves - that we love our Country, we love all races, we love Israel, we want people to come into our Country legally, we want our children and our cities to be safe. We are Christians who seek to love all people, people of every nation, color and creed. We are inclusive and tolerant. But we also love lawfulness, justice and truth. This is who we are, and YouTube let’s us share who we are with others. So please do not censor us. We want to be a voice that lifts everyone up.

YOUTUBE BELIEVES IN CENSORSHIP!!
by Saint Movius on 2019/03/25 04:39
YouTube used to be so cool, but now they want to control what you watch. Just try to find a video about UFO’s, 911, or any other questionable subject and the only thing you’ll get is what the mainstream sources (CNN, FOX, Etc.) want to show you. And by the way, they’re the same sources that our own President accuses of reporting Fake News. YouTube has taken away freedom of speech!! If I could give 0 ⭐️ ‘s that is exactly what I’d give them!!

That being if you let the powers that censor anyone’s voice, even though you disagree with, cause we this happens soon you’ll be next sooner rather than later. Ok so yes I still watch you tube there’s lots of great info on here. But just know if it is trending it’s either videos the masses enjoy cause there brains are mush or it’s cause google is push artificially

So I have a YouTube channel and it is really hard (for me) to create channel art. It’s always either too big, or too small. Even when It is the exact size it recommends it always says that my photo is too small. Otherwise, I haven’t had any problems with this app.

Aside from the occasional ad playing from the home page and following you through the app, it works mostly well. Very frustrating that it defaults videos to 480p or 720p. I’ve got 150mbps WiFi, it can handle 1080p.

5 stars if you fix this but this really messes up the app. 1.Stuff won’t load I have good WiFi or service it takes like 10 minutes to load it makes the app almost unusable. 2. When it does load it says error and the video will play but only the sound and it just shows the thumbnail and if you go out of full screen and back 10 seconds later it happens again and again and again for the all of the video. Thanks for reading this please fix it so I can enjoy YouTube way more.

Why 1 star? (Now 5 stars again)
by Babybird phone on 2018/12/15 05:17
*Update* Just tried the most recent version and all of my complaints were addressed. The settings I wanted are now available. If the below annoyed you too, tap your profile picture and go to settings where you can fix all those annoying things! Thank you, Google! *Previous version* The automatic playing of video thumbnails while scrolling through the list of videos. That's honestly the sole reason for me giving the lowest possible rating. What an abominable waste of bandwidth! Not only that, but there's no option to make it stop! Ever! It just sits there and keeps right on playing whether it makes you want to throw your phone at Google's head or not. That is the single WORST "feature" ever! Google, did all the smart people who once worked for you quit and move on to greener pastures? You used to know and care how not to annoy all of your products so they didn't migrate to other platforms to be bought by different advertisers. Remember the 1990s and early 2000s when advertising had lost its collective minds and threatened to destroy all the value in the internet, so you came along and introduced ethics and respect for those being advertised to and the internet took off and became an amazing place? I 'member! Now you're just slowly morphing into the great beast everyone heralded you for slaying. It's not good. Please go back to being the Google of old. Either that or just cease to exist already.
Form over function
by Branthony67 on 2018/11/09 14:47
This app looks great. This app is not very useful at times and has a number of critical functionality issues and bugs that need to be addressed. Two of which affect my experience with the app extremely adversely. When viewing a playlist and scrolling through recommended videos, the scroll function will freeze and force you to either select a certain video and then go back to the video you were on or minimize your current video and then being it back up, to re-enable scrolling. When saving videos to a playlist, outside of another existing playlist, the app will automatically add the video to the last playlist that you added a video to, which includes the “watch later” playlist, and will require users to wait for a delayed prompt to manually reassign the video to a different playlist. The function of manually reassigning videos may occasionally fail to work correctly and require the user to remove the video from its “saved” state and save it again and attempt to reassign the video with the same prompt that had just failed to work. These are two of many glaring functionality issues with the app that users will not encounter when viewing on a normal computer. These obvious glaring issues, among others, could have been addressed long ago and could have been easily avoided with even a small QA team that had been given half competent directions.
What’s Going On?
by khosmere on 2018/02/14 04:02
I don’t know if my phone hasn’t updated it until now or if this is just now happening but when I click to listen to my music playlist it shows the videos in the order they’re usually in when not on shuffle like it used to. But when I click the shuffle button to start it shows the order that it’s shuffled so that I know what the next song will be. There’s no problem with that but the irritating part is that when I find the song I want to listen to and turn the shuffle off, it doesn’t revert back to playing in order like it used to. It continues to play that song and then play the next song on the shuffle list, not on the next song that would normally play if it wasn’t on shuffle. Now, I don’t mind listening to my music on shuffle, that’s the whole point of shuffle, but I have a rather large playlist for songs and sometimes I’m looking for a specific group of songs that are next to each other in the playlist. Because of my having a large playlist, I used the shuffle feature to find the songs I want and then turn the shuffle off to listen in the normal order rather than scrolling through hundreds of songs to find the right ones. The feature of it reverting back after clicking to turn the shuffle off is helpful when I’m looking for specific songs but it’s hard to do that now that shuffle no longer does that.
App is old and clunky
by Phoenix1887 on 2019/02/17 20:44
Love the concept obviously as a video service, I even pay for premium. But I can’t give five stars to an old clunky app that needs to be redesigned. It shouldn’t take three difficult clicks to change the playback speed. You have to click a tiny menu accessible in the corner of the screen then click an option in a drop-down menu then select another option in a small drop-down menu. It always astounds me how these companies who have been around for longer than the iPhone has existed have these old clunky apps they never redesign and innovate to accommodate for the new technology they develop or that comes out... Play back speed should be adjustable straight from the main screen. You should be able to easily dial in increments from 1/8x up to even. I frequently change playback speed multiple times as I go through a video. Another simple feature it needs is a queue. It’s insane how I’ll be going through a list while watching a video and I can’t even queue videos to play up, only add to a playlist. Excuse me is this the year 2019??? What the hell is wrong with the app design team did they time travel out of this dimension already???? Update your freaking app with basic usability features for heaven’s sake you’ve had more than enough time to do this.
Video Preview annoyances
by Gamer4Ever!!! on 2019/02/05 20:46
First of all, I do enjoy this app. It is convenient and I use it a lot. The only problem I have with it is what I found out recently. When on the feed page, you can preview a video by hovering over it, which is a good feature, but why does it go to my watch history? If I didn’t click on the video, it shouldn’t be in my history. The other problem just started happening yesterday, where I would “preview” a video by hovering over it, scroll down to another video and tap on it to actually watch it. This activates the audio, but not just for the video I want to watch, but also for the previewed video I hovered over prior to tapping on the one I wanted to watch. So audio for two videos are playing at the same time. It is annoying because I have to exit the video, hover over the one I want to watch so it starts previewing, then click on the video so I don’t have two audios playing simultaneously. Sometimes it tricks me into believing that there is a bug in the video’s audio itself or someone is talking in the background, but that isn’t the case. Please fix this bug.
PLEASE READ AND TELL ME A FIX
by Haris04 on 2018/02/27 12:26
So when I look at the thumbnail for a video in my home page it automatically starts playing where the thumbnail was with no volume but with captions, and it goes to my history. I can’t even choose if I want it to play or not and I don’t want some of that in my history! And the worst pat is that when I click on a video and drag it down then scroll through my home page, a video starts playing from a thumbnail and the screen of the video that I clicked on is completely black! So then I have to close the video and go to history and watch it from there. Please tell me if I can fix this or turn it off. Also sometimes when I click on a video it buffers at 5 or 6 seconds and it won’t load so I close the video and the app then open it again and it still won’t load after 5 or 6 second!! Then I have to watch another video and come back to the video that won’t load. Then it finally works. (This might just be a problem with my connection/data but I don’t think so because I have a brand new iPhone X and still have the same problem on data)
Very good app, just a couple of suggestions
by elenaCaballero on 2018/05/01 05:03
I use this app every single day, and it is honestly very good. I would just like to give a couple of suggestions and report a bug. The suggestions are: the ability to like a video from landscape mode, I personally love to add to watch later and then watch all my vids one after the other, but to give a like I have to go to portrait mode, I'd like to have that ease of liking while in landscape. The other suggestion is that I would like to add to watch later directly from my notifications! I hope you take these in consideration. As for the bug, I don't know if it's just my iPhone 6s plus, but sometimes when I'm watching in landscape mode and I tap the screen to show the controls, the app freezes my phone. I can't tap anything, I can't press the home button, instead I have to press the lock button multiple times to lock the phone and then unlock it to be able to fix the issue. Please look into this, it doesn't happen all the time and the app doesn't crash, but it annoys me quite a bit...
It’s ok but needs a lot of work!
by Olivia Winslow on 2017/11/29 01:29
I love watching family vloggers and even listening to music! But there are some issues I’m running into here’s #1. The videos load ok at times at other times videos will stop and buffer, sometimes sit and buffer for 2 minuets and then continue playing. #2. At times videos keep switching different quality and won’t stay locked on to the default quality setting which is 1080p but it keeps switching between 144p to 360p then back to 1080p. #3 the app crashes and when it occurs it even causes my whole phone to crash and lock up and not do anything so I press the home button 3 times to gain access to my phone again to close the app completely out and restart it but it doesn’t crash every often it happens maybe every 3 or 4 times I open the app to watch the family vloggers! So all in all, all of these things are annoying and if these things can be fixed I would find it to be better then before! Some will say no it’s your internet, I say explain to me why I’m having these issues with the app and internet if my internet speed is 1 gig per minute!
Over a decade of never getting it right.
by 76514567890 on 2019/03/01 02:07
Every time there is a new update, I start getting these little errors that pop up as my videos crash that say “experiencing difficulties?”. The answer, besides the everyday usual incompetence of this app, is no. It happens the same way, with the same choppy cut sequence every time. Seems deliberate. Videos you click on don’t display in watch history until after the ad has finished. So if the app has a problem like it usually will, or you have to walk away from your device, you can’t find the video again. Can’t right a comment and rotate the screen without it freaking out and having the word box disappear or freezing while the keyboard changes color to a dark gray. Thought a white play button was a stupid idea? Well here, let me dim the background so you can’t see what’s going on! To top it all off, half the time when the screen is rotated and the switched back, it shrinks to 1/4th full screen and requires a restart. These are problems on all of mine and my friends devices. We’ve a game of see what will break next. At least there incompetence is good for something. Most of the time I can use a simple trick to completely skip all ads..
Video overlay bugs and awkward UI design. But the app itself is still convenient enough.
by The Other Whey Protein on 2018/10/27 14:37
At various points watching a video the overlay will flash, partially blocking my view with the pause/play controls, video progress slider, and various other controls while also dimming the video itself until I either wait for it to leave or tap in an unused space. In terms of user interface, i find it unnecessarily difficult to engage the ‘options’ control (in the bottom right corner of a thumbnail) while browsing. I usually attempt to use this feature when trying to add a video that I’ve not watched to my watch later list. More often than not, however, despite pressing where I need to, I’ll be thrown into the video instead. It’s like trying to click something pixel perfect with your thumb. Thirdly, and this is a personal gripe, but MAYBE not showing me the same advertisement five times in a video would be nice? If I’m gonna be assaulted by them, may as well have variety. Seeing the same ‘Wow, You Can Really Dance’ Tik Tok commercial really wears down my patience, to put it lightly.
How to get 5 star reviews
by LA in Philly on 2018/09/15 06:45
Gave a low score this time due to a couple of reasons. The app is giving me problems this evening. I can’t switch my account because each time I try the app just shuts down. I’ll give a better review after I can watch a full video on each of my accounts. Additionally, I think you need to give one of your top content creators a medical leave of absence. It would be a very nice gesture if you paid for her health insurance &/or other medical expenses as well so she can get help at a top eating disorder treatment center ASAP. She’s a young sweet lady and she deserves help. I think a lot of people would really respect the humanitarian side of the company if you did something like that. Her videos are disturbing, dangerous and they’re upsetting an abounding number of people, many of who are young impressionable children. I don’t need to say her name; that’s how bad this situation has become. Please do the right thing; if not for her, then for all the others getting influenced negatively without even realizing. I seriously do not want to believe our society has become so lowbrow and uncultivated that we would accept a young girl slowly committing suicide in front of an enormous audience all over the internet.
A Small Detail That’s Driving Me Crazy.
by JSKEJHWKWJEKDKSKLDJD... on 2018/12/07 02:30
Will still rate it 5 Stars because this is definitely one of my most used apps, and I’m sure plenty of other people can say the same. Despite how great YT is, there’s this one “lag” (I don’t quite know what to call it). Half the time I go to the comments and want to look at the replies under a certain comment, it won’t let me view them. I’ll press the “view replies” button a large number of times but quite literally nothing happens. Only way I myself can fix it, is to refresh the tab. Then when that happens sometimes I can’t even find the comment again. Even in general that is just an irritating thing to deal with. However, this could just be a problem with my phone. I’m not smart enough to tell the difference haha. If you have managed to stumble upon this review, just wanted to say thanks for the hard work, but also please acknowledge my frustration lol. -Syd
Amazing app, just needs a few fixes
by Boedinator on 2018/06/03 21:33
I love this app a lot and use it literally every day, it is absolutely amazing but I feel there could be some improvements made: 1. I keep having a glitch problem where I’ll press play on a video and the audio will start but the screen is frozen and I’ll have to press the home and power button like crazy to get it to stop then it takes a while for me to get my phone on again to actually watch the video 2. After watching a video sometimes it has this “ghost” effect where the replay and other options are see through or even doubled and I can’t turn my phone to get out of full screen mode so I have to do what I do to fix problem 1 where I push buttons like crazy 3. So we are now able to adjust video speed but It would also be nice if we had the loop option like when you right click on desktop mode, also if we could put in what times to start and stop the loop that would be great, if not then just a simple loop option would suffice 4. Sometimes I’ll press like on a video and it’s will like it but if I rewatch the video later it’ll say I haven’t liked it yet and I keep having to re-like videos when I watch them Those are just some things that come to mind at the moment that I think could be improved upon but besides that the app is great, I don’t remember at the moment if there were any other problems but I do know that the ones I listed should be fixed soon because they are a bother to deal with at times
Dont ruin something that’s already broken
by MichelleeRuiz on 2019/01/06 08:06
Update: it continues to do what ive mentioned previously and now it sometimes wont even connect to my chrome cast. So, this app had already not worked well for me when it came to staying connected to the chromecast but at least before if it would stop working (i.e. when I turn my phone screen off & go back to the app & try to play/pause it wouldnt work) but at least I could still skip through my videos on my queue & it wouldnt completely disconnect which is what happens now. It doesnt even take me turning my screen off, I could just be scrolling down my subscriptions or a playlist or even just scrolling through what I just searched & it will completely disconnect from my chromecast but will still be playing on my TV. I have to close down the whole app & then try again. If I try to just connect it back to the chromecast without closing the app entirely, it will just say it’s connecting to my cast but my queue will be empty & it doesnt show what I am watching because it is still casting the video I was watching. It was better before & even then it wasnt great. Fix it please!!
i love it! one annoying problem...
by Web259 on 2019/02/13 03:54
i love this app, i use it almost every day. the one issue i have is that (it didn’t used to be this way, but it’s been doing it and won’t go away) when i have a video and want to make it full screen, it doesn’t matter if i click the full screen button or tilt my phone, it glitches and only shows me a corner of the video. it cuts the screen into fourths basically and the top left one is the bottom of the video and the other pieces are just gray or something. it’s SUPER frustrating and won’t go away. a few months ago i didn’t have this problem. then a while back i had a similar issue coming out of full screen. it would cut off half of my screen when i minimized the video by tilting my phone upwards and i would have to either close out of the app, or swipe down from my video to fix it. i love the content, accessibility, recommended, etc. but these two things affect like everything i watch. it may just be me but it’s been so annoying!
Only gets two star because of the content creators.
by Gert2341 on 2018/05/28 13:44
The two stars is for my favorite content creators who the Susan whatever deems bad and will don’t deserve money. One reason she got that job is probably just because she was a women. I bet she did many other things but being a women helps. The promote leftist views by putting left wing videos on the home page and on trending such as Jimmy Kimmel. Apparently every video that get 200,000 views in two days is trending. Every time someone such as Bill Wurtz posts it is trending because people like him and he doesn’t post very often. They also censor right-wing views by removing the videos demonetizing them and not putting their videos in people’s sub boxes. Also they change things that content creators don’t want changed and makes it harder for fans to find videos. So overall I give it a two star just because of the content on the site.
It’s great and extremely entertaining
by Hello ___ on 2018/12/29 17:42
If your looking on a app to keep you entertained for hours and hours, I suggest you get this app. And if you want to be a youtuber, it’s very easy to upload videos. Also if you have about 10,000 subscribers you can interact with your fans by posting a message on a community tab. Though, if your under the age of 13, or your child is under the age of 13, Do not get this app! They’re many people who create very inappropriate videos or make sex jokes, There is some porn on it and very bloody pictures. Be careful on here. They’re is a lot of rude people on this app. Though if your child is over the age, it’s fine, the app is very entertaining and I promise you they won’t get bored. -Suggestion for this app- On the Community app, you can comment, and obviously the creator can like or reply to that comment. But, they can’t reply back to the creator. Can you please make it so we can reply back to the creator? And that other people can reply on their comments?
Incredible Resource for Knowledge and Entertainment
by 🤔😉🤗 on 2018/09/06 04:55
I love to read about traditional and Non Traditional subjects sparked by my Upbringing and influences. In reading I don’t have time to read subjects varied from my likes dislikes and opinions, However, on You tube I can also find things that are not necessarily my opinion and either learn or retreat from said information quickly as I browse through numerous subjects that may have been a college elective or an older sibling or parent turning me on to sci fi or other varied and adventurous subjects or my passion for History and Various Forms Of Music That I experienced and reminds me of times or passions I share with friends and acquaintances that may have had similar or different experiences. I also like the fact that I can benefit from friends acquaintances experiences and knowledge that I can grow from or Not. It’s a brilliant tool and I am happy to live in the communication age as a marketeer and Entrepreneur, who can see inside and outside the box, without Judgement.
Censorship
by jastquentino on 2018/10/02 11:28
I have used YT over 5 years now and I used to enjoy the free flow of information and random vids that were selected with an algorithm based on my preferences and interests. I loved YT and listening to content creators of all stripes and sorts changed me. I can’t believe you people censored Alex Jones and so many others. I listened in the beginning of my political journey, but he is more entertainment than news. I m appalled to see what has happened to YT in the last year with censorship of political ideas and commentary. Just because YOU don’t have the same political persuasions as me, does NOT mean that YOU get to determine what content I expose myself to. I know all you quivering lefties are still suffering with your trump derangement syndrome and can’t understand how the country voted for who they did- I recommend you leave your privileged Bubble of google and find out. Yes, there is crap and random BS but as a consumer I have the pleasure and privilege of using my critical thinking to intellectually dispose of ideas that I find distasteful. And I do. I think that having my political exposure censored by people who’s job is TECHNOLOGY not social engineering a big problem.
Bugs
by rbelcher98 on 2018/09/16 04:32
There are a few bugs that really are getting old and need to be fixed, but a lot of people have already pointed out the majority of the ones that I’m having issues with, so I’m not going to bother complaining about things that are already well known issues. That being said, I didn’t see anyone else mention the main one that I’m having issues with, and it’s gone on so long that it is incredibly frustrating for me to watch videos on the app now. When I’m watching a video, the transparent screen that that allows you to pause, fast forward, rewind, etc. (it normally comes up if you click the screen) continually pops up, on its own, every 15-30 seconds, and it is extremely frustrating. I watch a lot of 15+ minute videos, so you can imagine how annoying this gets after it happening that frequently. I would rate the app 5 stars if not for that, but because this is such an annoying bug I definitely can’t give that high of a rating while this is an ongoing issue.
Why change the 3 dots button????
by silver.&.silent on 2018/08/31 23:40
I would use this ALL the time to state if a video is not interesting or if I want to save for later. Now it is super small and you have to hold it down for that same menu to come up, turning an action that used to take no time at all into a frustrating and time consuming experience. If you tap on the three dots it just plays the video, what sense does that make if I’m trying to access the menu. This change happened without me even updating the app itself. Please change this back, there was no reason to do that. Also when a video finishes playing the next recommended videos pop up on the bottom of the screen making it hard to access the full screen button, so when I am trying to go in or out of full screen I almost always inadvertently press another video and then have to go all the way back out to get to what I was watching. Does anyone actually test these “features” before they are pushed out? ETA I just updated the app on my iPad and now the search doesn’t work, this is like a horrible joke. Rollback this update I can’t find anything useful about it.
Pure awesomeness but...
by slendypants on 2018/06/28 17:47
The app is unbelievably good and runs really well but here are the issues that NEED to be fixed: 1.the notification-the notification system use to work really well but nowadays it’s broken and it doesn’t notify the subscriber about the newest upload. 2.the lag-this problem is caused by disconnecting or lagging right when you click on the video, when this happens the video plays but with the quality taken down and the audio of the video not being set as the video(the video plays but the audio starts after a few seconds). 3.same problem but-this problem is basically the same but it happens during the video with no lag or disconnections. 4.comments-for some reason nowadays when you want to add a comment in the comment section there’s no problem but when you’ve added the comment and leave, after a few hours if you return to see your comment for a reason it’s not there. 5.basically the same with the likes-it’s just the same but when you like the video and leave and after a few hours you return the video isn’t liked by your account. That’s it, this is what I’ve been experiencing for the past couple of weeks. I apologize about the few grammar mistakes I’m not American or English so I’m sorry. I hope you read this and I hope that this helps you to fix these problems. ♥️♥️
I’ve never had problems with this app before so I’m kinda disappointed
by Lovelan💕 on 2018/06/06 17:57
Just today I was listening to music on the app and out of no where the screen turns black but the music continued to play. I then click out of what I was listening to and restarted my phone, that helped fix that problem but then I went to my like list (I mostly have music on it for easy access). So I started listening to the music on my like list and whenever a video is done playing it atomically changes to the next video on my like list like it supposed to but whenever it goes to the next video my my list it freezes but still the audio continues to play. I left my like list think that it was what was causing the problem but this happens every time the app changes videos....... ugh please fix this.
Strange status Bar glitch
by The One And Only The Prodigy! on 2018/03/31 14:21
Hi there… This app is great… But there is one problem… there is a strange status bar bug… lets say you are watching a video… And you want to check the time The time doesn't change… If you check the status bar while watching a video for example… Let's say I play a video that is 15 minutes long… At 9:31 AM and when that video is finished… It's already 9:47 AM unless… You exit out the video… The time still says 9:31 AM it'll be 5 o'clock in the afternoon and the status bar would still say 9:31 AM it's like… The clock got stuck The time doesn't change… Unless you restart the app… Or exit out the video also… Nothing in the status bar changes including the battery level The only way to see the correct time and all of the other information displayed you have to exit out the video And… For the iPad version if you select add to bye accident there is no cancel button it's been like that for three years please fix those issues… There really annoying
Issue with queued videos linked to another device via WiFi
by CplMSO on 2019/03/18 03:22
There’s still an issue when linking my phone with say my tv or a console. ANYTIME I would like to link my phone via WiFi with say my console as a remote and or to add more videos to my watch queue, I have to manually take it out of multitasking every single time I want to pair it with my console. Only after that, can I play and pause videos from there. If I recall right, two updates have since been pushed out for ‘maintenance and improvements’. I don’t know if those updates actually do anything significant to performance and functionality or if they’re just bs placebo updates cause this issue still persists. I’d send screen shots and log info through the feedback link in app (which I already have twice the best I could show what it is) but going through that feedback link does not allow for a screen shot of this issue that at least I’m dealing with. Please get on top of this issue, it’s irritating enough as it really seems like some fixed something that wasn’t broken.
Needs Some Improvements
by Rose Mairi on 2018/01/13 07:59
For the most part, this app works really well, but sometimes after a video ends while I have it on full screen, it freezes and stays black for a few seconds, which is a little odd. The only other problem I have is that when I pause a video to read something and have to tap the vid to get the white pause symbols out of the way, it glitches if I tap it twice too fast and the symbols freeze for a few seconds, which is aggravating and has been happening for a few months now. I’d really appreciate it if you guys could fix these two small issues. Other then that, everything else is great. Update: It doesn’t seem like any of the problems I mentioned have been fixed, as they’re still happening. Please fix those issues. Also, for some reason, this app just now closed on me and my phone turned off and immediately turned back on. I’m assuming it has something to do with the app itself. If so, please fix that problem.
Overall good app but there are some problems
by mgoldman78 on 2018/09/03 02:03
I use this app very often! But of course, any good thing also has some down sides. I think that you guys should ban the people who truly deserve it. And there are TONS out there who really need to get taken down(Mainly Logan and Jake Paul) also, I think the three dots by each video should be put in a different spot. Because if I am trying to press it, it will click on the video and I will have to try to tap on it repeatedly until it finally works. For example, say you see a video from a youtuber you dislike, you try to press the three dots to get the video off of there. But when you try to press it, it clicks on the video instead. You go back and try to do it again. But it clicks on the video once again. You do this repeatedly until it finally works. This has happened to me too often. But overall, this is a really well made app.
Some issues with the latest update
by Reality Macro on 2017/12/08 04:51
I use this app probably more than any other app on my iPhone. For the most part it’s really great, but not without flaws. Most of the videos displayed in the Home screen no longer show the video length timestamp in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail which is really irritating. It looks like all other views in the app show the timestamp, so hopefully it’s a bug that’s fixed ASAP. A couple random videos in the Home list show the timestamp while the other 95% do not, which makes no sense. Sometimes the video rotation gets stuck in landscape and will not revert back to portrait view, only the opposite landscape view. This has been a problem for a few months now, and the only way to fix it is to force quit the app. This is quite irritating. Finally, a good addition but extremely overdue feature is the ability to sort the Watch Later playlist. FINALLY this utterly BASIC feature exists. I have no idea why the Watch Later playlist worked so differently than regular playlists for so long, but that’s fixed now. The best addition from a few months ago was the feature of double-tapping to rewind and fast forward. Every video player needs this. It’s incredibly user friendly. It’s way better than the rudimentary 15-second skip buttons that many players now have.
Shuffle feature on playlists
by Ethan "Eman" on 2018/06/17 00:21
You had it all figured out in the last update, now it’s back to what it used to be, a useless feature... Who in their right mind would want a shuffle portion that only shuffles the first immediate 200 videos and actually physically shuffle them not even jump to a random song while keeping the playlist intact? That is my only issue other than making it so ads play on every video in a playlist rather than what it used to be if you kept watching you’d get less ads unless you physically chose the next song. Edit: To make matters worse you made it so when you do shuffle and hit he next button it doesn’t send you to for example: 3261, it just goes to the song right after it. Having a playlist that nears 5,000 songs I would like that the playlist doesn’t physically shuffle and just skips to different parts of the playlist like how any other app’s shuffle works.
Update gone wrong!
by Lilminimoges on 2017/12/07 06:03
The newest update of 2017 December. The video keeps switching to random videos during a video is going on. I cant watch ten seconds of video without it switching to another. So please fix this bug. Also fix your skip button. It’s showing up less and less. And when it does show up it’s for a 15 second video and not a thirty second video. I don’t know how many people have these problems, but it’s important to consider the viewers when you put a video in the link and can’t watch the video they want. I have many other problems to say, but that’s up to the media to explain not mine. ————————————————— This is a day after my complaint. The new new update to fix the switching the video to another video decreased of chance to another video. I don’t know if your still fixing the problem, but don’t rush to fix the problem. I know you do want to keep us satisfied, but rushing to fix problem is going to make it worse. So please fix the problem correctly by not rushing to conclusion of being fixed and being done.
A bug that needs to be fixed NOW!
by Jocelyn Rivera11272006NYC on 2018/01/02 20:57
I’ll be watching a video while charging my phone, so I have to turn my phone a specific way to watch in full screen. I’ll turn my phone and it will be UPSIDE DOWN! I try to fix it by exiting the app completely but then it happens again it is extremely irritating because my iPhone needs to charge so if you want me to use your app more often then you need to fix that so I don’t have to take an hour pause to let my phone charge. Other than that I love the app I wish it wouldn’t randomly quit on me mid video also, stop flagging random YouTubers they Are the only reason you are where you are today check if what you are striking then think why you are taking a innocent video down for doing absolutely nothing. To the people:If you want this app buy it however comma it has some flaws you can inspire others with your words but be careful of the audience you are posting to 👉🏼👉🏼
Gets worse and worse
by Roblox mobile on 2018/10/17 02:19
this app was great before the latest three or four updates. i used the app daily before those updates but when they installed the apps performance and my rating for it went downhill. cant have more than one of the same video in a playlist, thats terrible for my playlist of band music. app doesn't run properly even when on wifi after entering my own wifi zone. drains my phone and iPad battery even when there is only one video running. all in all i just think this app needs lots of help and taking off the latest three or four updates and im sure it will work perfectly and my rating will go back up. -EDIT app is just terrible now i cant even do anything in my own wifi zone or any other wifi zone. service on data or in wifi is just not up to date and its like watching tv in 1965. yall really need to get your crap together and fix this freakin app cause its just terrible now.
Pls Fix
by MomoMJS on 2018/05/04 23:57
I like the app overall. But there’s one problem that keeps occurring. Every time I press pause/play a lot of times, the app completely freezes up. All the buttons and stuff still work but the screen just stays the same and doesn’t respond to the buttons I’m pressing. For example, when the screen freezes up, when I press play the sound continues as if the video is still playing. But it is not matching with the screen and it just stays frozen. I can only turn my phone off. Even when I do that, when I try to turn the screen on, I have to wait about 10-20 seconds or even more for it to come back on. I don’t know if this is just my phone or the app. But I think it’s the app because this doesn’t happen with any of my other apps. So please fix this bug. Thanks!
Needs one thing..
by EndertheFox45 on 2019/02/23 18:21
This app is good, and the problem is very minimal but I feel very important and it annoys people no doubt. Im going to see a movie today. What does that have to do with this review you may ask? Well I was doing my usual scrolling through the videos and then I saw the ending clip for the movie I'm going to see and it spoil a big thing. Kinda upsetting seeing I have been trying desperately to avoid things like that. Anyways I'm sure it's happened to loads of other people and I want to change that. There should be a filter in settings (yes settings because that seems logical) that filters out actual clips of the movies with it on unless people actually search for it. This would exclude trailers. It may take a long time to add it in but it would be for the better.
I love this app, but...
by Junebaby1962 on 2018/03/23 00:48
This is my favourite app, but when I put my music playlist on shuffle, it will play maybe one or two songs. After those one or two videos, it will jump back to the second video on the list (it shows my videos in order even when it’s on shuffle) and it will play it over and over and over again. And when I skip it, it won’t even go to the next video, it will stay on that video. Also, sometimes when I turn on shuffle, it will show it in shuffle order, and it will have the perfect order, but when I listen to a few songs, it will start on the song I just listened to, and shuffle the whole thing again. I don’t know if it’s supposed to shuffle over and over, but I thought that I should mention it. But, please fix these possible bugs, because once again, this is my favourite app. Thank you!
One major bug
by Storm flare on 2018/10/15 21:47
I’ve had this app for quite a long time. Years, really. I haven’t had any major issues throughout, but recently I’ve had a bug where, for a specific few content creators, there’s a bug with ads that makes the actual video unwatchable. What happens is, I click on a video and it loads an ad. The ad then cuts and it changes to the video. This has happened, usually if there’s a loading error with ad. However, then the video cuts back to the ad, which doesn’t load, and cuts back to the video, and so on and so forth. I thought it was just a one-off, so I tried another video by the same person. Same issue. I restarted my phone and the app, no fix. I came back days later, same issue with the same person. I’ve only had it happen with two creators, but they are ones I would regularly watch so I’m a little annoyed.
I shared with her the same problem
by Aloreni on 2019/01/30 11:48
So when I look at the thumbnail for a video in my home page it automatically starts playing where the thumbnail was with no volume but with captions, and it goes to my history. I can't even choose if I want it to play or not and I don't want some of that in my history! And the worst pat is that when I click on a video and drag it down then scroll through my home page, a video starts playing from a thumbnail and the screen of the video that I clicked on is completely black! So then I have to close the video and go to history and watch it from there. Please tell me if I can fix this or turn it off, Also sometimes when I click on a video it buffers at 5 or 6 seconds and it won't load so l close the video and the app then open it again and it still won't load after 5 or 6 second!! Then I have to watch another video and come back to the video that won't load. Then it finally works. (This might just be a problem with my connection/data but I don't think so
This is ridiculous
by Doopdoopdo on 2018/06/05 06:09
All of the sudden my homepage has become FILLED with content I have never shown an interest in, channels I have never watched, and most of it isn't even "suggested" because of anything I watch either (which I would know since I just had to go through 20+ suggestions and mark *Not Interested*). I don't know if this is content you're being paid to push, but for an app where I get unsubbed from the creators I love, have trouble finding their videos, and don't always get notified about channels I have notifications turned on for this is inexcusable. Especially with rumors going around that the sub page might not be chronological much longer, how are we supposed to see the content we actually WANT and SUBBED TO? Fix your app, or at the very least stop pushing this random nonsense on your user base. If you guys weren't the only option I (and a lot of others) would have moved on A LONG time ago.
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.
Unwanted change
by βryan on 2018/01/03 15:06
Can you please switch to the old card view when you pull down videos to search for others? It used to just fill the bottom right, but now it fills the entire bottom as an elongated card instead of just the video, and it even makes the video part smaller and chops off some of the top and bottom of the video which I dislike. I don’t need to have the whole title down there. Go back to the old style and make the card of variable size depending on the video. I noticed that videos are actually 4:3 or of other lengths when viewing them in portrait mode now, instead of always showing in a 16:9 area with letterboxing. I absolutely love that change and it would be super amazing if you could implement the old pull-down card version with that addition. I really prefer swiping to the left to dismiss those video cards instead of down with the new style as well.
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.
Notifications Glitch? READ AND FIX
by from Licoricewand ;) on 2018/09/22 00:01
This is the most useful app out there for many things, but idk I just don’t think I want to rate 5 stars. ANYWAYS. There’s a glitch, I’m not sure what really but every time I get a notification about a replied comment or someone commenting on my videos (which is a big deal as I’m a small channel with not even 30 subs) I tap to go to the comment and it’s gone. Nothing. I thought the first few times they deleted their comment but now I don’t think it’s that. After I tap on it there’s no finding it. If this is a glitch or happening to anybody else PLEASE FIX IT. I spend most of my time watching the same peoples videos and I leave a comment on every one, I have to be able to respond or like. And I can’t do that if it’s gone. Please fix this glitch. I’ll change it back to four or five stars if this is fixed or explained.
Fix the playlists
by ZestfulElf on 2018/07/22 16:18
I have a few playlists with one of which being the default “watch later” playlist. My watch later playlist is full but sometimes I’ll still try to add things to it. A few days ago I tried to add a video to a playlist that I use when I teach my saxophone students different things and the video was automatically put into the playlist that I had last added something to, although I did not want to add it to this playlist. Last night I was trying to add a video to my watch later playlist and of course it just told me that there was an error. Now when I try to add any video to a playlist it will try to add it I my watch later and tell me that there is an error. The old system was much more time efficient for people like me who had more than a few playlists where they add videos every day.
Some issues on iPad
by Dude of Sandbox on 2018/05/05 06:41
It is a good platform for watching many varied videos, but suffers from some problems. -Commenting has issues. Sometimes a comment infinitely processes with the “loading” symbol. Other times, it’s an issue to click out of writing a comment. You usually are able to tap on the screen away from the comment typing box at any time to close it and return to the main interface, but sometimes it just doesn’t work and you must close the app in itself. Replying to comments almost always leaves a double reply, which is more of a visual glitch since it reappears when going back to the comment chain you had left a reply on. -Every video has a “Not interested” you can select. While watching a video, there is a recommendations bar at the right of the screen. The video at the very top of this bar does not have a Not interested selection, so if you do not like the video at all you will still get it recommended to you. -The app randomly crashes often -When scrolling through the play bar, most videos show you a small screenshot of what displays at that point in time of the video. Other videos do not have this. -Finally, this one isn’t an issue but could be useful. Advertising options, such as not immediately starting the video after an advertisement ends for more information.
Needs a little improvement

I like the app it just has a few glitches that need to be fixed. When I start watching a video it takes forever to load than when it starts playing it stops about 10 seconds into the video and it says it’s loading when it’s not. I restart the video a few times and it stops at the same place so I close out of the video and try again. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn’t so I have to repeat the process multiple times. Another thing is that when there is an add it takes a really long time to load or it doesn’t load. I’m the middle of a video I close out then I have to repeat the process I do at the beginning. Than when it finally starts working correctly I have to find my place and that takes even longer to load. I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling but that doesn’t fix the problem.
Love YT but....

I really do love YT. I appreciate more of the smaller channels than the popular ones. I have no interest in watching Pewdiepie or any other big youtuber. What I don’t understand is the algorithm of recommended videos. I hate sports but yet they get recommended to me. Why? Because maybe a video I watched has someone playing sports so you or a computer assumes I like to watch the NBA or the NFL? When I watch a video of someone vlogging and they might show their nephew I suddenly get recommended pregnancy journey or announcement videos! Why??? When I click that I’m not interested it’s back the next day. Some recommendations are spot on some I don’t understand. It’s probably the same computer the demonetizes depression videos but will monetize stupid ones. I wish this could be fixed but I doubt it.
Needs a back button!!!!!!!

The app works like a charm every time. It’s so simple that you really don’t ever have to think about it because there seems to never be any bugs whatsoever. However, it would be so helpful to have a back button. Sometimes you search out content and then take different suggested videos and then all of a sudden you accidentally tap a video with your big clumsy fingers voyeur video ends before you can replay part of it it takes you onto another one and you just want to go back to the last one you were on but instead you have to try to start over from your search and find your way back to the video that you may have accidentally dismissed, especially if you didn’t catch the title of your last video.

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 App - Needs 2 Important changes
by TechaddictATX on 2018/04/15 14:16
I use this app all the time and I love it. That being said, there are 2 major things I would like to see fixed. First, I would like to be able to have a search box when I’m looking at a specific channel, so I don’t have to search through all of YT for that channel’s specific video. It can even be a lot just to search through that channel’s content for an older video, let alone the entire platform. Second, I would appreciate it if YT didn’t restart so frequently, causing me to lose my place in my video, even after navigating away from the app after just a few minutes. I’ve taken to adding every video I don’t finish right away to the Watch Later list, which is a bit annoying. Other than that, I’m really liking all the recent updates and reorganization.
