It used to be a solid 4.5 stars. Now, I am generous by giving it 3 stars. The dislike count is so crucial to viewers and creators. Now I have to sit through a horrible crappy video just to find out it sucked and doesn’t give me the information I need. I really wish there was a viable competitor to YouTube.

The heart of cancel culture
by The hippocampus on 2021/12/02 16:35
This company regularly suppresses everything that their users like. Gun channels are practically impossible to monetize now after their recent terms and conditions update. They removed the dislike button too. They’re canceling everything and playing more ads than ever. YouTube is without a doubt the most horrible company anyone has ever seen. Sadly they’re the only way I can watch all my favorite creators. I can’t wait until someone puts them out of business. You’re the worst YouTube.

by Hi you person on 2021/12/02 16:28
Hello didn’t my really know where else to put this, because you guys have such a great app that most people don’t have an recommendations, but I have one. Anyways, on my laptop I’m able to turn down the volume on your website and on my computer which is really nice when I’m studying and I just want really quiet sound to be playing in the background. However, I can’t do this on the app and it would just be really nice if I could turn down the volume in on the app in addition to my phones volume. Hope you guys see this and thanks anyways if you don’t still a great app. Sincerely, random consumer

Can’t stop me from disliking here losers
by PizzaEater404 on 2021/12/02 16:14
Youtube used to have it’s problems but it wasn’t the worst, recently however I guess they thought it was too difficult to scam people on this platform so they removed the dislike counter thus making it so if a scammer doesn’t want to allow people to see the video is trash without watching it then they can do so. Comments exist but the type of people that would lie/make fake tutorials are the type of people that would delete comments because that’s something you can do. They also say crap like “we aren’t removing the dislike button” which is just so patronizing because it’s useless if nobody can see how many dislikes the video has. Just a horrible decision to hide the distaste for corporations and this review isn’t changing until they bring dislikes back.

Lack of dislike button, unfairness to small creators, and allowing wildly inappropriate kids content
by Nanton_anton on 2021/12/02 16:06
Small creators often have to beg for likes, and the other viewer interaction. YouTube’s algorithm lets larger channels to continue to gain subscribers and viewers, while smaller channels are left with what they have. They mostly communicate by word of mouth and the occasional random algorithm expansion. A main way I have discovered smaller channels is by looking up specific content that they have, or finding them through other small channels, however the amount of small channels that are familiar with each other is slowly dwindling. It was revolting to me when YouTube insisted that the dislike button was removed to assist small contact creators, when in fact, it was really helping click bait creators, large corporations. Misleading titles and thumbnails will often lead to inappropriate content, and many channels that produce kids content will often have videos that are inappropriate for children, and will often have misleading titles, when in fact the videos themselves are inappropriate for children. So many “kid’s channels” will have sex, poop and vomit body horror, nudity, and more. I can’t have my little siblings watching this. I can’t have kids watching this.

by Gamelover1.0 on 2021/12/02 15:34
Just recently they got rid of the dislike button. How am I supposed to know whether a video is clickbait or not? Or if it’s useful advice if it’s a tutorial video? The dislike button was a tool for people to use in order to find out whether the video was worth their time. Couple that with the increase in unskippable, two-in-a-row, 15 second ads and you start to notice how unbearable this app is starting to get.
Notifications grouped
by ingcaster on 2021/12/02 15:30
Notifications groups videos as “x uploaded y new videos”. And when I play the video, it puts in queue all videos uploaded by that channel in the last few hours. How do I ungroup them?
The Best Feature
by Mooncraftian on 2021/12/02 15:30
The best feature on the platform (the down pointing thumb, that way they don’t auto-remove this review), is gone. At this point, if I ever want actual informational videos, I can’t use YouTube anymore! Thanks guys, you’re so smart and innovative and you’re ALWAYS looking out for you creators and viewers!
Creators are the only thing making this app worth the download
by Jesse4DS on 2021/12/02 15:29
There is so many issues, overused ads, constant sex bots in comment sections (now being more than actual people in reply sections), removing the dislike button (I request that this goes both ways: if there is more dislikes than likes, then the like button is removed and vise versa), horrible copyright system for your benefit and not anybody else’s, and a lot more issues. This app is literally flawed in how people can even do this as a job. Your pushing your limits on how much longer you can add boundaries for. At this point, the app isn’t surrounded around the app itself, it’s the creators that make it worthwhile and the content THEY produce. Screwing them up can go back at you if the circumstances are right.

by D. Shipman on 2021/12/02 15:22
Amazing isn’t a good word, because too often people use words with excessive meaning to express meaningless things. Current YT is “good”. Not great, not terrible, but certainly NOT on the rise. From a dedicated consumer I cannot help but see the façade of care for small YouTubers you say but actions speak volumes, and the current iterations of this once great idea is currently tone-deaf to its community. No one blames you for running it as a business, but everyone despises the condescending way in which you treat us, by telling us what it is we want when an easy poll can say otherwise

YouTube has consistently every update shown how little they care about the creators and the consumers. They lie to us and show absolutely know transparency in their decisions. The only reason YouTube is still in business is because nobody has tried competing the moment someone does it’s over because YouTube will keep making idiotic decisions that help nobody but mega corporations and their competitor will actually do what a good company should.

by Masonloveshyperball on 2021/12/02 14:55
YouTube is making changes that they try to camouflage as being about caring for users when the real reason is because of politics, corporate interests and money. It’s disgusting. Getting rid of the dislike count moves YouTube closer to being like cable television… which everyone mostly abandoned for things like YouTube. YouTube, you too can go the way of MySpace and cable. I love the people creating content, but the people controlling the app are amoral scum bags.

I cannot see dislikes anymore. I often use YouTube for “how-to” perform very niche work on computers. Now they have removed a valuable tool for evaluating the validity of all how-to videos. Their choice to remove dislikes from view was a very poor idea. I have rated this app at one star, and am happy to change or amend in the future if they change their ways.

Ads are both falling in quality and increasing in quantity, they removed the dislike button, and if I make a vertical video on my phone, I have to make it long or risk it being a short and not counting for watch time. If you want a good YouTube experience, go on your computer and get the dislike and Adblock extensions.

Use to be a great app. Now it’s filled with ads to the point where you watch more ads then actual content. They removed the dislike button. Now you can no longer see which videos are worth watching. You may be stuck watching a very unhelpful tutorial and then have to spend more time watching another one to see if it’s what you need. It’s gotten worst over the years and honestly it be great if there wasn’t a monopoly of a video sharing platform.

However, I leave my review at one stars in both protest of the removal of the dislike count and as a reminder that YouTube must still be held accountable for its policy changes and must act on the base of actual creators, not corporate ones. Return the dislike count, YouTube.

by fuiyfuffudfuuffu on 2021/12/02 14:08
The removal of the dislike counter has already made YouTube a less enjoyable source of content. Within a week I am already seeing a influx of low quality, clickbait, and scam content. The lack of the dislike counter means that quality and reliable content posted by smaller channels has been pushed out of the algorithm to make room for clickbait and scam videos. The removal of dislikes is a decision most likely done for the potential of more income, rather than the communities well being. That is all I have to say, thank you for reading.
The dislike button
by jacb.itcenter on 2021/12/02 14:07
Hi YouTube I wish I could give this review a one star rating because of how unwise this decision is, seriously YouTube do you want to become unusable. Not only do dislikes help people to not waste time and to learn if that video is possibly not entirely factual or good information but it allows people to create a way of rating wether or not that creator is doing good for the public to see and then they can take that and form their own opinion. You have said that you’re for the user or the public but you have shown countless times that that is simply untrue and frankly it seems you care more for big corporations or for yourselves when you get called out. Google the person who currently is running YouTube is doing a terrible job and is ruining the platform and going to lose you money because of their inability to make good decisions. they’ve got no right to be in the position they have now and should be fired and replaced . YouTube used to be a platform for people to share beliefs but you censored certain groups. It used to be a way for people to share things they loved and make it into a job but now you’ve made it so much harder for them. It used to be a place where people were banned for things actually wrong now it’s who can get reported the most times until they receive three strikes. Today it used to be a place where people could vote on whether the information was good or bad and create a talking pint on that and to criticize and grow as a platform and now you’ve taken that away from the public. You are so disappointing.

Awesome learning a lot
REALLY AMAZING HOWEVER
by bokfhbihimjkhlyjl on 2021/11/26 04:58
I really enjoy this app, I love how it works. I know this is my third one, but I haven’t made one in a long time I think this deserves. So basically, some of my videos get copy right claimed, okay, that happens when I don’t credit. HOWEVER, I did credit, and I really don’t understand how I got copyrighted when I already credited. This really gets annoying, I suggest double checking and checking the description or comments or titles for whether I put the credit. If I don’t, that is perfectly fine for the copyright, also, sometimes I don’t know who made it even with a bunch of research, most people that I saw do the same song or meme or whatever barely credit either, so it’s hard to find the original even when searching whether I can find the original, because people are like “not original” I get that, it makes it harder though. I explain on the video whether I can credit or not, but I know to say I have no right to say I own the thing, and that it’s not original, and that if anyone knows the original, could tell me. It’s not that hard to understand whether I credited or not.
A Few Annoying Problems...
by ME I SENT THIS! on 2021/02/11 03:30
I’ve been using this app for years and it has been great. It works well and is a nice quality app. I have a few problems though, and it has to do with the subscription tab. The first problem is that it will often say that someone has posted (showing a little blue dot on their icon) but they haven’t. No big deal, but if I click it to make the blue dot go away, then go back to a different tab (such as the home) it will put the blue dot back. That makes it so there is a red dot on the subscription button which just bothers me. It also usually happens to people with less that 1k subs. The second problem I have is that I don’t get all community posts. I am subscribed to a lot of people, and a good amount of them make posts regularly. Maybe this is supposed to happen, but I don’t get them all, and I would like to. The last problem (which I find more funny) is that when I click all to see everyone I am subscribed to, it shows everyone as normal. But, if I leave the app and come back, or slide up on my phone (to show brightness or flashlight) it will switch around the names so that they do not match the right person. Other than these three problems, the app is amazing.
Please add an update
by PeteGunk on 2021/09/22 23:24
I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but I cannot see the comments on the videos. My notifications center has gone to the size of the vertical version, and even when I turn my device vertical, it still doesn’t fit the notifications in full screen. The comments one just recently happened, and it really annoyed me because I like looking at comments while watching videos. Plus, I was currently arguing with a homophobic 7 year old and wrote an entire paragraph, yet it wouldn’t send, and when I restarted my device, the comments weren’t showing up, on any video. I restarted it again, and nothing changed. I request an update to fix this problem because it really affects my enjoyment. Another thing is that it turned off notifications for comments, people replying to comments, and videos. It also turned off notifications for all of the people I was subscribed to with notifications, and when I tried to fix it, it turned off my notifications for them again. I tried fixing it again and again, but nothing worked. There are still times when it works, but not often. So I beg you, please fix these things. Especially the comments.
Thanks to online
by mrs. wahl on 2021/10/21 05:49
My husband and I are from Portland Oregon and Fort Bragg is my hometown of 20 years. Thanks to a good friend of mine, more like family…..she asked if we wanted to join your book study on 1 Samuel 11. Well we love Jesus, and I had just began to have a disgruntled moment, and what better way then to get out of worldly moments then to remember that Jesus is driving. Those doors that were not open for me were because God didn’t want them to be. He wants me to look a little harder to find the ones that are open, the ones that He has open for me, so I am where He needs me to be, not where I want to be. Amen to the scripture tonight, because we do not have to follow the enemies snares because we are doing what we think is good for us. We can stop and align with Jesus, be a little patient and remember just because we don’t understand it, Jesus does ❤️ Thank you for going live, it helped not one but 2 people tonight, my husband 😂😂😂, I’m in a good mood so he is safe😂😂 God Bless you ~Michelle & Jereby ~
Im triggered about the comment section
by my love of life on 2020/11/06 00:13
I hate the new update for the comments. I hate having to press something just to go trough the comments. I would rather scroll down then tap on the bar thing. I hate when the videos are really big i like it how it used to be. Please change it. Hi again! I have some issues I would like to address! So on the Ipad im begging to have community posts able to be seen. Just make it like the phone but wider. Its stressing me how much I miss stuff because people normally post on the community post option. I have to go on my phone just to see it. Another one is PLEASE update the notification area. It use to be amazing before until you guys changed it. I am not going to lie but you people are ruining your app to the worst. I don’t wanna come off harsh or anything but it is very annoying. I am gonna keep my rating on 4 stars till you guys improve. For now it’s staying on 4. Another issue is the search thing glitch (i think glitch). It would just not let me delete my search or click on it. I have no idea why but i would like to no because its annoying me a lot. I wanna say thank you for your time!
Playlist needs to be fixed
by Trihexian on 2021/09/23 08:06
I just updated this earlierYesterday on September 22, 2021 and the app itself I really don’t like the new update to it because I watch lol playlist or videos sideways so I can see it easier and a bigger screen than just watching in a smaller version standing in portrait mode and because of this new update my video playlist or the description will now be in the right hand side of the screen in full screen mode when you watch the movie as the screen is divided into two parts left-hand side will be the video itself and then the right side will either be a playlist if you’re watching a video on a playlist or I will just be description of the video itself and it’s very irritating especially in a playlist as I try to sometimes fast forward and when I try to do that I end up hitting a video in the playlist and it goes to that or when I try to hit close so I can see the rest of the video, when I go back to re-open the playlist because I listen to some movies on repeat and after 5-10 minutes the playlist itself is not on the screen anymore and I have to close the video and go back and open my playlist all over again.
My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!!
by Ann the Angel on 2021/11/20 01:52
I have a playlist for music that has over 1000 videos in it and it won’t update anymore in the library section, when I press library and scroll down after adding a new song to my playlist I don’t see it, and if I make a new playlist sometimes I won’t see it there either. I thought of making a new playlist but I don’t know how I’ll make a new playlist and transfer 1000+ videos onto it manually. I now normally have to go to my channel profile, click the playlists tab, sort by newly added to and then *maybe* I’ll get to see my music playlist but sometimes it just flat out tells me “you have no crated playlist” when I know for a fact I do, so I have to redo the whole process over again multiple times just to see my playlist because it won’t show up in the library playlists, please fix this. Also gotta add on yet again that I’ve been seeing a lot of homophobic and racist videos that aren’t removed, you can’t even report videos unless you watch them first and you can’t report channels either because the button doesn’t even work when you go to submit the report, and from what I saw on twitter it seems like you’re just trying to defend low life’s at this point, get it together.
Fine, but one detail..
by Pencilsn on 2021/02/08 06:16
The app functions about as well as any app does. It’s nothing revolutionary, and I do think it’s gotten better, at least on the iPad version. However, there’s one issue (that really just annoys me more than anything.) On the bottom row, on the corner of the icon that indicates subscriptions, a red dot will appear to (I’m guessing) notify you that there’s a new video from someone you’re subscribed to. But most of the time, the red dot appears even when there’s nothing new. It’ll go away when you click on it and are in the subscription box, stay away when you go to a different page, but randomly appear again shortly after. Typically it’s when you refresh any page, but I’ve seen it reappear out on nowhere for no reason when I’m just browsing. It’s super annoying to think there’s something new when there isn’t. It’s such a tiny problem, but if you think about it, so’s a mosquito. That little subscription alert that shows up for no reason is like getting bit by a mosquito over and over and over again. I’m covered in bites and very aggravated. Thank you.
Good app but advertisement overload
by ScarletSkies4 on 2020/09/16 07:05
I understand the need for advertisements but it’s to the point now that it’s negatively impacting my experience. Now that there’s two, back to back ads in every break it’s irritating how much I have to interact with the app just to finish watching the video. The more I use the app the worse the experience gets. I usually like to use the app while doing other things like cooking or cleaning. I mostly listen and don’t always have my phone in hand. In an 11 minute video with 6 ads, the middle break had a 30 second unskippable ad followed by a 2 minute ad that was skippable. Unless I am physically on my phone to return to the video that would be 2:30 minutes of ads just for 1 of 3 ad breaks in an 11 minute video. It’s overload. I get that using the free version means you gets ads but it’s overshadowing the content. I don’t want to interact this much with something I’m watching. It’s not a game app. Guess I’ll just stick to watching it on the desktop with my ad blocker. Otherwise, yeah YT is ok. They’re just getting into Pandora territory which is disappointing. Didn’t mind the ads until recently.
FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE
by Jo Seph GD on 2021/02/09 00:29
Since the latest update (which was 2 months ago, uncharacteristic from the normal weekly bugfix updates), I've been running into issues more and more. The two largest issues I've been running into: -Endcards in fullscreen: For some reason, endcards are placed way too far down in fullscreen, making them unreachable or very hard to reach. This is really annoying, but manageable. -Links in the Description: This is the an issue I've run into recently. Essentially, links in the description that lead you to other parts of the app are unclickable, showing you that indeed it knows you are clicking on it, but it fails to link you to the page that you clicked on. These issues could've been solved as soon as they were discovered, but it turns out that Google decided not to update the app for a specific reason: they'd have to give further privacy info, due to a new App Store requirement enforced after the day that the latest updates for all the Google apps came out. (They haven't publicly confirmed this, but it's very likely that this was the case.) So I ask Google: Get your act together, and fix your app!
the new update
by Mahalhaaa on 2020/05/16 06:34
this new update is absolutely atrocious. i understand having innovation towards wanting more for your viewers but the execution was poor. The comment section is where I could be able to talk and relate to the interest of video and as i scrolled down i could potentially see the other videos that i wanted to watch. Moving the comments under the description is problematic because 1. it’s easily missable 2. it made going/making a comment more difficult 3. the fluidity of scrolling for other videos and going to the comments made sense 4. having the back button on the left side (in addition to muscle memory of clicking on the newly “escape” right side) makes it plain tedious. the thumbnails are also an issue because they are too large. one video thumbnail alone takes up almost half the screen and with two of them it takes up the whole screen. less is more, and bigger doesn’t always mean better. please consider reinventing the layout because it’s problematic having people used to one idea and completely changing it.
Crappy and overtly finicky interface
by Tommy6727 on 2019/09/29 04:08
Oh you slightly shook your phone... k skip go to random video. You want to back, tough crap another random video. Hey you want a feature no one asked for like swiping a video to go to a new random video because pressing the next button was obviously too tiresome - you go it! Oh too bad this will constantly activate when your moving your phone or putting in your pocket. Oh another great feature is let’s completely obscure the last couple of seconds of every video with random crap popups of other rando videos that might be related to what you were watching because who really wanted to watch the ending of whatever clip they were watching right?! I mean it’s not like the ending of a story is important. I know when i read a book i just throw it in the dumpster like 5 pages before the end because nothing important happens at the end. Whomever made this craptastic app should have their iPhones confiscated for life. Worst app ever
I hate the ads
by Prelly33 on 2021/09/17 04:17
Seriously I hate the ads. They’re overwhelming and intrusive. And no it’s not better “controlling” the ads with Google settings. That does nothing but ask me if I want random ads or tailor made ads. Tailor made ads engineered to encourage me to buy things I may like but in reality shouldn’t be blowing money on at an addicted rate on. Sorry I’m not Jeff Bezos, let alone employed. How about this, I will buy those things, from those ads, from the companies you’re partners with to host these ads, allegedly some creators are being hypocritically harmed by certain ads but I digress; if you agree and Google agree to pay me and others interested in being paid to watch all these ads on all our devices in our homes. I’ll shut the heck and play all your ads. Yes I write this angry but this is a lot of frustrations built over the years since the dawn of the ad-pocolyspe. Also stop with the recommendations and let me see my freaking subscriptions first. Oh and fix your stupid algorithms. You’re already loaded and backed by Google so get it together! If humans can make A.I. Create websites surely your staff of humans can create a better algorithm. Until then I’m here for the content creators not your stupid ads!
I listen to the rain videos all night to sleep with and have subscribed to at least 100 sites.
by pcdavis80 on 2021/11/10 08:33
I have so many interests from cooking Keto, the adventures of Marc Abel from Colorado Bigfoot and Adler Farms to name just a few. Some of the sites I visit feel more like family like The Hillbillies, Colorado Bigfoot, Grandpa From Adler Farms and more. I am grateful that it is free and all I have to do is watch sales pitches because have found some good purchases and items because of You Tube advertisements from awesome walking shoes that I also bought for my sister who loved them to an electronic that increases the charge on your phone battery in minutes. Thank you for providing use, the subscribers with such a great platform. I do have one issue that concerns me and that is censorship but I believe that issue will iron out when the next administration is elected. I had thought about boycotting you tube for the practice but have decided to wait and see what happens for now.
Ads
by SynthWendigo on 2020/07/16 19:47
They push quite literal porn ads for adult mobile games, often using footage for something else entirely to pretend it’s not adult content, and then demonetize any creator who says anything outside of their radical left leaning biased. I get so many targeted ads for alcohol based on my age and location and have NO way to shut those down, and I can’t even use their support page, as I am greeted with an error saying I am not authorized to view that page. As someone who deals with drinking problems, and autism that’s forced me to stop playing games with predatory monetizing in place, seeing these ads constantly really does impact me in a negative way. Including the GTA Online ones of their Diamond Casino adverts of come in to spin the wheel for a chance to win a new car. I only bother to watch on my iPhone, and I don’t like being harassed to buying Premium just to NOT be bombarded with ads promoting gambling, alcohol abuse, and the adult mobile titles. I get they are targeted toward my age, but seeing beer adverts at 4 am is entirely out of line.
Alright, but flawed in fundamental ways
by Sevallis on 2020/10/22 22:28
The iOS app constantly forgets the actively playing background video when I lock the screen, and even if it appears on the lock screen to pause/play, trying to start and stop it via Bluetooth headphone burins also constantly fails and instead starts playback of something random from my Music app. This apparently will never be fixed? Not being able to listen to video from my locked phone without paying a bunch of money monthly is rubbish and just eats up battery life. Also, when I swipe a video down and then go to close it, get rid of that stupid bounce animation that moves it if I had just liked a video. That animation makes me miss the X close button due to it moving around and getting bumped by other notifications. Make the other notifications come up above the video at the bottom and not move the playing video minimized strip, and make it instantly move to the bottom predictably so I don’t miss the close button and re-maximize it.
Not user-friendly
by Jbmore2005 on 2021/10/20 23:30
I think the app Is really good, I use it every day but there are some features that drive me nuts. The one feature I hate the most but I wish there was an option to turn off the feature where on your home page or subscribed channels and some others, on where it shows the Picture of a video before you select it, if you let it sit there for a couple seconds it starts playing the video on the Area where the pictures is. I might seem overdramatic but that feature drives me out of my mind, I just wanted to where I can see the picture and if it says some thing on there I can read it and not have to worry about it starting the video on me, I just wish there was a option to turn that off. one other thing I would prefer there to be is more options as in When something is added to the app and you don’t like then it would be nice if there was a way to turn it off instead of being forced to have it. Other wise I think the app is pretty good just a little more user-friendly would be great thanks.
You Tube is no longer a service provider but a ideological machine
by LT Greek on 2021/09/19 04:08
At one time I considered being a You Tube Creator before the dark times, before the demonetization of perfectly valid, legal and even wholesome content! Now you seem to be agenda driven ideologues. You drive creators off the platform who teach firearm safety, safety assembly and disability of firearms for example. The knife collector and reviewers are afraid to use the term knife in fear they will get a Strike for violating some vague You Tube policies that no one but you knows, I believe you make up on the fly, and then will not disclose to the creators when they ask what they violated. You demonetize creators yet run continue to run ad’s on their creation and turn around and say that you demonetized the channel because you fear advertisers will be offended! What a ratchet. Though I did lose some investment in equipment cost, I a certainly glad I saw this coming before I got locked into this scam and ideologically driven propaganda. I only stay here because of the creators that I enjoy, remember that. I am not here because its You Tube. I come here to be entertained and informed by creators I enjoy watching. Once you drive them off then I am gone, not hat you care.
Watch Later
by Shreyas21 on 2021/01/27 06:04
Watch later playlists now only load 20 videos even if I use a different sort by function. If I use oldest or newest, only 20 videos show up. If I switch to manual, I only have access to those 20 videos. Every other playlist seems fine. This is one update annoyance. Furthermore, you moved the subscriptions to the 4th button from the left after years of it being in the center. I am tired of having to close the creator / record / upload screen after naturally choosing to click the center most button, WHERE YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. we got used to the comments even tho the UI within comments is garbage, and now you do this. Do you like making the app worse or are you just messing with us at this point. At best I could argue that it improves RAM and cache usage due to not loading everything unless demanded. A good idea done with poor execution is still a poor idea.
The End
by soothsayer 🎱 on 2021/02/21 15:52
What has happened to YT is tragic. I have been a fan and member since the second year it came out, if I’m not mistaken. I’ve been on so long that I originally signed up with AOL bc that was the only thing available at the time. That’s how long I have been on YT. So I am a loooong time member and fan. It used to be one of the best things that has ever happened to the internet. It was fun, exciting, mysterious, educational and groundbreaking. NOT ANYMORE. It is now a shell of its former self. It is now like everything else. Created only to make money. Ad after ad after ad. It’s an invasion. I am interested in what people have to say or what they made or did. Now it’s, insurance ads, political ads, censorship and control. It’s worse than “reality shows” and reality shows are by far the absolute worse thing ever. I used to spend countless hours on it, now I spend less than an hour per week...if that. Horrible. I’m just like everyone else...I’m moving on. The sad thing is that YT doesn’t give a blip about what I think or what any of us think. This has been proven by its continued status of nonsense and greed. Every update is NOT to fix a glitch it’s to place a fresh batch of ads! No thanks. I’m out!
So many problems
by Gjvthxffeesxbgf on 2020/07/19 07:51
The loading times can be pretty awful. Whenever I switch to a different tab or turn off my phone and play the video I was currently watching, the video takes sooo long to load when I unpause it. This doesn’t occur when I’m using the app and I don’t get why it happens when the app is running in the background. I understand why ads are a thing and this hasn’t been a problem before but now it feels like overkill. Every time I watch a video an ad pops up. Sometimes they’re 15 non-skippable ads and at its worst there’s two. And look, taking away the comments for videos that have been COPPA’d is one thing and removing the mini player is another. It makes no sense. I don’t get how this would be harmful for kids. And the way you decided what videos are for kids is awful. Some of creators have moved on from their channels so when you automatically decide their videos are for kids it removes a whole decade of comment sections. And I hate how I have to worry about my niece stumbling upon two anime girls talking about sex because you automatically decided all animation is for kids.
Opens up an encyclopedia of vision learning !
by dL💕gJ on 2021/11/14 15:54
We really depend on You Tube to learn how to make , fix and build things !!! Especially if the directions we bought them with are scant or in another language ;) ( think kids toys , faucets, murphy beds …) It has introduced us to all kinds of subjects ( cooking , Montessori learning , gardening on all levels, bee husbandry, soap and craft making, even the best way to teach an anxious teen to drive ! - ) we love the hard working knowledgeable people we see! My family also depends on faithful freedom of speech politically, allowing people to make up their own minds along the way . Especially with careful viewing , analyzing and conversation about subjects histories. I have heard of U tube censoring or dropping a chosen video in histories and really hope careful protocol has gone into this practice . I guess we all need to look at our 2nd amendment. Unless, of course , its about hacking . Ugh Thank you U Tube- you have enriched our lives and reduced frustration here on many levels !
This is the best app, just a few problems.
by GAHHAJANSTAKQHAIAIJAUA on 2021/05/20 21:56
Google, thank you for making this amazing and work well app. But I have 4 issues. It takes some time to load, when I watch a video, and now I get almost 5 adds at the same time. Another issue is, when I post it says to many strikes. I hate that! Because I had 1K but, then I got a strike, and I decided to quit since I couldn’t post anymore, please fix it. The last reason is, when I’m watching a vid, and I go to there channel, I tap videos but, then it takes me back to home page. Please fix this app google! It’s good in many ways, but I just don’t like how it can effect our account or even email, this made me really scared and sad, please google! Fix this! I don’t want to have to keep retrying after getting 3 strikes, and I have 1 idea, that google didn’t do, maybe you could put an content tab, and you answer what you want and ur youtuber can do that type of content. BUT! GOOGLE PLEASE FIX THIS APP WHEN I RESTARTED I ONLY GOT 14 subs back! I’m really sad about this. I want this problem fixed.
Scary video’s 😱😰
by Norah05 on 2021/02/23 22:01
The videos there are super creepy one had a video of someone taking a video with their house lights off and there was a shadow that moved but when they turn on the lights nothing was there and there are a lot of ghost videos too so if you’re an adult or a kid that really loves scary stuff you can download that but I don’t think even adults can take that but then again adults can but kids I don’t think so if you have this app and you don’t like the scary videos try to search for videos that aren’t scary but if there are no videos that are not scary then just delete it I’m saying that if you luck getting scared go ahead and delete it but here’s what I’m saying this app is super scary and people like scary some people not all of them so this is just a warning ⚠️ getting scared 😱 is fun but only on Halloween and people in here recorded ghosts 👻💀so only download if like getting scared 😱!
These fix these problems
by shadow prism on 2021/04/28 05:50
Number one I’m listening to music and there’s a holding guard column playlist why did you scatter each playlist all over the place leave it in one column make a scattering it is hard to fine just leave it in one column where is easy to go to problem number two what’s with the new quality settings and high-quality mid quality why can’t we just pick a specific settings you need to fix this setting right now because we want to specific said we don’t want to automatically go to 480 P to 1080 P we wanna pick on the settings for like 720 p 360 p I had 360 P we want to optimize our own settings for resolutions and you’re taking that away from us Number three ads they’re seeing multiple times and we can’t get rid of them it’s really annoying TheAds but you can’t skip is basically the same at Ads playing over and over again and it at a point it gets annoying for example the Verizon ads that really gets annoying you need to stop that
I have an idea for the inbox tab
by Stoocy05 on 2020/06/08 11:10
I love using the app so much, and other than the comment section being moved, it’s great. I have an idea, though. What if you change the way the “Inbox” tab works? Like when you click the “Inbox” tab, there are two separate tabs on the top. One should obviously be for new videos from your subscription feed and the other should be notifications from comments you’ve left. I tend to comment quite a lot and often find myself scrolling through many videos in my inbox just to find the comment I’m looking for. I also know that many don’t like commenting, so that tab will be kinda useless for them, but what if you make it an option for the users in settings? It would really improve user experience, especially those like me, who like commenting a lot. It would be nice to see this implemented in the app!
Like app BUT
by cay-os on 2020/02/15 22:43
I actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much.
Downloads/Premium
by 김 재넌 on 2020/10/28 13:21
For days now it keeps deleting my downloads. I’ve downloaded over 200 videos and now they’re gone. Twice. I don’t know if it’s the update, but you need to fix this. I’m paying almost $17 and it doesn’t even work right. I keep re-downloading them, but a couple hours later, they’re gone. First it says it’s having trouble loading them, then it straight up deletes them. This is one of the big features I use and if it keeps doing this I might as well cancel the subscription. And don’t get me started on the ‘no ad’ feature. Every time I go on a different device on the same account I have premium on, I get ads. I’m actually starting to get annoyed. I use the downloads to listen to music offline. Each time I go offline; “Cannot load downloads” and then, “No videos downloaded.” Please fix this because it’s a long process to download all of the videos back onto my device. If anyone is going to get premium, do not buy it until they fix this issue.
Stagnant monetized development
by iPhone iConnoisseur on 2020/09/27 06:25
I have been a premium subscriber for a while now, so as new capabilities become available, I can understand the desire to monetize to create a variation between premium and non subscribing. The thing is that exists with ads and services such as TV. The biggest reason I got premium is I didn’t want to see ads for things I didn’t care about. That is the same reason I didn’t get TV, I don’t care about it. The desire to limit things such as PIP as to not lose the differences between paid and non is becoming ridiculous. Now, in the struggle to control background playing on iOS, google has safari crash if it is a non paying account trying to use PIP on mobile safari. Personally, that is kind of rude, and Apple should fix it in a patch because safari force crashing is in my opinion a iOS bug. No website should have that much control over your browser and OS. Apple? My gripe is that the app doesn’t have the functionality. Seriously? I’m already paying for it. Why do I have to use safari as a paid subscriber? It is this type of account greed that ruins companies.
Garbage on iPad
by Really_tried on 2019/08/16 22:39
Going full screen, moving around the video, or just have a transition from the video to the ad will almost guarantee that the whole app will glitch out. Not only do I have to exit out and close the app multiple times to fix the problem, I have to wait for the sounds from the ad/video to stop playing-even after I exit the app-then go back in and have everything back to normal. I also have to click on the notification feed multiple times until it registers that my inbox has already opened and stop displaying that number on top of the icon, which is the number of new videos uploaded by channels I have the bell ringed. And lastly, there is just no support for the implementation of the community feed on the iPad, even though other devices do. It’s just stupid. Garbage company, garbage decisions, garbage staff. Vimeo is looking better than ever.
UI was better before
by kkone1517 on 2020/05/13 19:32
The video quality itself isn’t the problem lately but it’s the changes to the comment section and recommended videos that I just can’t get behind. For me, and many others a big part of the experience is being able to look at comments and easily jump between other’s reactions and thoughts on the video, along with easily being able to jump between time stamps listed in the comments and the video. Now, it’s far too easy to overlook the comments altogether since they tend to blend in with the description or even get overlooked as part of an ad. It’s also ridiculously easy once you’ve clicked to look at replies to a comment to exit out of them completely since the X just closes them all instead of that specific comment, which makes it all supremely annoying to navigate. It would be good to give the option to toggle back to a “classic” view at least, since it isn’t only the comments, but also the recommended videos that are troublesome to look through as well. Really, have they never hear of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”?
Can’t change my PFP
by khalid nazari on 2020/12/31 05:12
Hi so today i decided to change my Profile Pic but when i clicked “save” nothing would happen even if i hit “Cancel” still nothing would happen, it would just stay on the screen where you make you’re new profile pic, please fix this Edit: Hi again, i would like to tell you that i still cannot change my Profile Pic, I don’t know why one of the biggest apps in the world right now can’t even take Changing your Profile pic, i tried deleting the app so i could test if i can Change my PFP if i had installed it again, and the answer is no, And listen i know it’s not that big of a deal it’s just a Profile pic but come on! I have to completely close the app in order to get out of the screen that you choose your new pfp because the stupid cancel and save buttons don’t work even if you press them a million times.
YOU TUBE MUST REMAIN IMPARTIAL FOR ALL
by Wowie Waui on 2020/12/10 14:12
Please remain impartial and non-partisan. Let the people have their voice from both sides. The truth will set us all free. Some videos may be false and debatable and some might be made for the purpose of telling or showing the truth. Let the viewers have their own free will to chose what to believe in or not. As human beings maybe this is the way that we evolve to be better species where in everyone can share thoughts and beliefs to everyone and let the world tell their opinions about it. The world has the power now has the power to reveal the facts and false narratives in the same platform and let the world judge or COMMENT ABOUT it. The makers of the videos will also realize that if their VIDEO UPLOAD is not being appreciated/approved/supported by the rest of the world or by the whole world. Just let people upload and let the rest of the world react to the videos. In this way we as humans have an OPEN DIALOGUE and OPEN DISCUSSION. Whether good or bad the human race will be evolving through this way.
Comment Likes no longer go up. Fix it!
by David Wonn on 2020/10/26 18:29
It took a while of seemingly endless update loops but the app finally finished an update. So far, some issues seem to be addressed, such as an active video in the lower right obscuring the ability to tap the 3 dots to the right of some videos at the end of long lists, such as Watch Later history and so on. Upon further review, the Videos tab on every channel is blank, regardless of how you sort. That’s a MAJOR bug. [Edit: They have since fixed this, so I’ll bump up the rating.] I like having the new ability to view replies to my comments on other videos without interrupting watching an unrelated video. I also like the addition of ¾ and 1¾ speed multipliers on videos. Unfortunately some videos now get paused when moved to the lower right corner, though this behavior is inconsistent. Also I’ve seen delays on comments in live streams going as far as nine (9!) minutes with only a few hundred or so people in chat. Also I have my fonts magnified due to poor vision, and for some reason, bold text in comments on videos is unusually small. So with the forced update, some things improved, and some didn’t. Update 10/26: This app routinely removes my likes on comments shortly afterward. I remove the like and re-like it, and the counter is fixed, then it decrements. It is so obvious when I’m the only one who liked someone’s comment, only to see the number "1" vanish shortly afterward. Fix your app!
Dislike feature
by Flowzn8r on 2021/11/28 03:17
The recent removal of the feature allowing viewers to longer have the option to see the dislike count of a video lowers the overall quality of the app. This feature was supposedly meant to prevent creators from beings the victim of targeted harassment which is not a problem in the community whatsoever. The videos that would receive a ratio of more dislikes than likes most likely receives the dislikes due to the fact the videos are most frequently misleading, hateful, or display another feature of a video that should not be watched nor is it worth watching. YouTube’s removal of this feature now prevents users from determining the overall quality of the content they wouldn’t have to view had they been able to initially view the count for dislikes. Furthermore, the amount of likes on a video should also no longer be viewable by the audience due to the fact that this increases the chance of an audience member to like a video regardless of their true opinion. Overall YouTube’s recent decision making has been on a level that no company should be proud of.
Amazing app but tiny annoying features.
by WheresMyDad99 on 2020/10/15 22:45
I love this app. I have met many amazing people through it, and it’s sort of a pass-time mostly for me. The only things keeping me from giving this the 5 stars it deserves, are it’s new updates. I haven’t checked computer updates but on mobile description and comments are completely separate from each other. Instead of just clicking a button to read the description, it pulls it up completely covering everything else, same with the comments. Instead of just scrolling down, it is right by the top, which I don’t think is much of a problem other than confusing, but the fact that it takes up the entire bottom half of your screen if you click on it is annoying. I really don’t like having to take the time to click in and out of these. I really don’t care a ton or think it’s the end of the world, it’s just really annoying.
Awful bug!!!!
by madid503 on 2020/05/21 00:50
The app is absolutely amazing and I use it all the time. But there seems to be a bug job the app to where I can’t watch any music videos on the app with the original singing, all that pops up when I type in a song is the instrumental versions of the song then when I go to find other songs that I saved there is a little bar that pops up saying that the video must be approved first before I can view it but doesn’t give me the option to fix it. I haven’t been able to find any of the music I regularly listen to and I can’t even find singers accounts to view all their albums and music! It looks like everything has been totally deleted except for all of the instrumental versions which is absolutely not what I wanted to listen to. Also the comments, which I love to scroll through while the video is playing, is always saying that the comments have been restricted from my viewing because of some restriction mode that I didn’t even know was there let alone turned it on. PLEASE FIX 🚨🚧⚠️‼️
Great, Until-
by wet pomegranate on 2019/03/28 13:16
It’s great, until you realize that this app is supposedly “17+” rated, yet steals add revenue from its own creators, because they said something the moderators didn’t like. And as soon as the creators apply for an appeal for their video, that they spent hours making, it takes months for it to be even looked at, and at that point, all the possible revenue these people could have earned is gone. They’re also extremely biased. I’ve seen many channels I’ve watched taken down for little to no reason, yet showing a dead body on screen to make money off impressionable small children is acceptable? It took three days for that video to be removed, which is absolutely ridiculous considering if it was any other channel who had posted it, they would have the video removed instantly, and probably would have had their channel taken down. Also, bring back the recommendations when watching the videos. I can’t even think of a reason why they’d remove that feature, but I guess they just want to steal even more money from innocent creators who are trying to make a living.
Not happy
by sony234 on 2021/09/30 00:03
Very annoying issues.. subscription tabs red dot stays on even if there are no new videos. CAN WE HAVE A QUEUE OPTION PLEASE??? how hard is it to allow an option that already existed or exists now for streaming? Why can’t I put things in a queue to watch immediately and in a sequence rather than putting into Save for later and forgetting about it?? My save for later list is full now and because the app tries to automatically send videos to that list when you hit Save under a video, it doesn’t even let you pick which playlist to save it to if the list the full. It just shows a message that it’s full and doesn’t let you save it anywhere else from that page. I have to go find the video under the poster’s channel, click to the little three dots and then hit Save to playlist to avoid saving it to Save for later. Shorts has been nothing short of an infuriating mess that makes me leave the app. Recommendations in both Shorts or regular videos just stay uselessly stuck to either ONE channel or the same handful being recommended over and over.
Why can’t you just give the chance for people to try it before making it standard?!
by Shane Kinnear on 2020/05/12 04:37
The comments section getting moved is extremely annoying, I usually don’t use it and prefer just to have it out of the way but that’s not possible now. The thumbnails being larger for the up next and suggested videos is also a bit annoying cause I usually pay a lot more attention to the titles of videos instead of the thumbnail, the only reason I can imagine they were increased though is so you could show larger ads without getting complaints about that so good job your getting extra complaints thrown in now also. Just make a section in the settings for experimental features, have it go for up to a week when toggled and if people turn it off early or use it the whole time ask for a comment about it. You’ll end up having people who don’t leave comments but you’ll also have the chance to test the feature with more than just a focus group and possibly avoid some anger. If you do this you just need to make sure people know the section is there
Fair
by Jakejb2360 on 2019/08/12 21:32
I really don’t like being pestered into a subscription. And commercials or ads are now political can you remove them. I see so many political ads it makes me sick. Everyone of them is just so anti-Trump how about showing the advantages of having them in office and what they would do with their time in office. Like I want to hear how they would take care of our Communities and Country. And honestly it would really be nice to hear some ideas about their plans on what is really important like feeding our homeless winter is approaching and I just want to be able to see benefits of voting for them not more of that anti-Trump crap, it is getting old and it seems like all that is done anymore. Isn’t there more to USA then bashing Trump and his Administration. Show car Commercials plug some you tubers channel that may be of similar genre or subject. Can’t go wrong with food ads.
Good app back in the day
by wtfmain on 2020/09/24 21:55
The links to videos has gone way down hill, especially on the app in the last few years. The app seems to only suggest something I have already looked up or seen for the most part, and suggests things that I have little to no interest in when it comes to things other than music, although this has been slightly better in the last few months it’s still a far cry from how good it was in the past. Furthermore it seems that now some videos are removed for there content while other videos that display similar ideas or problematic content, but from a different view are left up for some reason. If one person saying or doing something is deemed not ok then another person with the direct conflicting points of view must also deemed not ok, or else the is a one sided landslide effect that occurs. A truly open form for differing opinions, ideas, and beliefs of all is the only way for an online community to flourish.
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.
Nonexistent comments section
by jfkwxn on 2020/06/08 23:03
I've heard about the new update where video comments were moved to a different part of the page, which bothered me a little but not too much. However, when this app updated on my iPad, the comment section was completely removed and nowhere to be found. There is a button at the bottom of the recommendations that seems to redirect you to the new comments location, but when I tap on it, it just brings me to the original comments location, which is now entirely blank. I can't see comments other people posted, and I don't have the option to write a comment myself. I've made sure that it wasn't just that comments were disabled on the videos since I can see the comments on another device using the same account and same video. As someone who reads the comments as much as I watch the videos, I'm really disappointed and frustrated.
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.
Great app! Almost perfect
by EragonMax1995 on 2019/06/23 23:31
Like I said in the title, this app is soooo amazing! I have found so many funny videos, video game guides, music videos, etc, on here. But there’s only one problem and I believe it’s a bug. Sometimes I like to look and see what other videos are on here that are recommended for me, but I also like to watch videos or just listen to videos while I’m doin this, but after I add like maybe 4-5 videos to my certain playlists, the app just crashes on me. Please fix this cause it’s very annoying when it happens and I’d like to be able to continue finding new videos to watch while I’m also watchin another video at the time. If y’all fix that issue, there’s only one addition that I’d suggest you made to the app: a side button in the app that lets you see where your favorite YouTuber has commented or liked one of your comments on their video. If you can add that and fix the issue, this app will be perfect. Hope you’ll listen to my ideas.
Lots of problems but I still like it
by Emmybears6 on 2021/10/03 03:17
First of all, many people are saying the same problem but every time I upload a video and say no it’s not made for kids it keeps saying that the comments are turned off all of my videos that I’ve made is turned off comments. Next, every time I wanna watch a video(well not every time but at least once a day) when I’m watching a video and I am like in the middle of it (it Has to be a long video though) it just goes to the next video when it’s not the end. And the last problem, when I first watch a video then add it to my liked videos or my Watch later One day later the video goes blurry but the editor didn’t edit it after and I am logged into the same account on different devices and it still does that on the same video. All these problems I don’t know what’s causing it. I hope you can fix it. Thanks for reading
Updates = Decreased functionality
by Bobjtx on 2019/03/27 13:20
I have used this app a lot over the last 4 years. It has been a pretty good experience. However, I am not sure what is happening to human engineering at Google. Each new update seems to make the app less intuitive and more difficult to use. Ex: 1. Pausing a video to view something on the video in more detail (chart, text,...) is now impossible unless you know the hidden trick. Paused videos now darken the screen and place a LARGE play icon in the middle of the screen, making it impossible to view the paused video. This makes the large segment of teaching/how-to videos much less effective. 2. When saving a video, you no longer get to select where it will be stored. YT now stores it in the last used playlist. This requires you to stop, figure out how to pull up the saved video, and remove it from the wrong playlist YT saved it to, and then save it to the one YOU wanted it to go to. YT no longer thinks you are smart enough to know where you want to save the video. Youtube/Google engineers believe taking options away from users is some type of “improvement”?! Give me a break!! My recommendation is to no longer trust Google to do the right thing, and not accept YT updates until you research what less fortunate reviewers are reporting about each new update. It’s the only way to prevent losing useful features. And don’t even get me started on the increasing number of Ads YT is showing with almost EVERY video.
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

It used to be a solid 4.5 stars. Now, I am generous by giving it 3 stars. The dislike count is so crucial to viewers and creators. Now I have to sit through a horrible crappy video just to find out it sucked and doesn’t give me the information I need. I really wish there was a viable competitor to YouTube.

The heart of cancel culture
by The hippocampus on 2021/12/02 16:35
This company regularly suppresses everything that their users like. Gun channels are practically impossible to monetize now after their recent terms and conditions update. They removed the dislike button too. They’re canceling everything and playing more ads than ever. YouTube is without a doubt the most horrible company anyone has ever seen. Sadly they’re the only way I can watch all my favorite creators. I can’t wait until someone puts them out of business. You’re the worst YouTube.

Hello didn’t my really know where else to put this, because you guys have such a great app that most people don’t have an recommendations, but I have one. Anyways, on my laptop I’m able to turn down the volume on your website and on my computer which is really nice when I’m studying and I just want really quiet sound to be playing in the background. However, I can’t do this on the app and it would just be really nice if I could turn down the volume in on the app in addition to my phones volume. Hope you guys see this and thanks anyways if you don’t still a great app. Sincerely, random consumer

by PizzaEater404 on 2021/12/02 16:14
Youtube used to have it’s problems but it wasn’t the worst, recently however I guess they thought it was too difficult to scam people on this platform so they removed the dislike counter thus making it so if a scammer doesn’t want to allow people to see the video is trash without watching it then they can do so. Comments exist but the type of people that would lie/make fake tutorials are the type of people that would delete comments because that’s something you can do. They also say crap like “we aren’t removing the dislike button” which is just so patronizing because it’s useless if nobody can see how many dislikes the video has. Just a horrible decision to hide the distaste for corporations and this review isn’t changing until they bring dislikes back.

Lack of dislike button, unfairness to small creators, and allowing wildly inappropriate kids content
by Nanton_anton on 2021/12/02 16:06
Small creators often have to beg for likes, and the other viewer interaction. YouTube’s algorithm lets larger channels to continue to gain subscribers and viewers, while smaller channels are left with what they have. They mostly communicate by word of mouth and the occasional random algorithm expansion. A main way I have discovered smaller channels is by looking up specific content that they have, or finding them through other small channels, however the amount of small channels that are familiar with each other is slowly dwindling. It was revolting to me when YouTube insisted that the dislike button was removed to assist small contact creators, when in fact, it was really helping click bait creators, large corporations. Misleading titles and thumbnails will often lead to inappropriate content, and many channels that produce kids content will often have videos that are inappropriate for children, and will often have misleading titles, when in fact the videos themselves are inappropriate for children. So many “kid’s channels” will have sex, poop and vomit body horror, nudity, and more. I can’t have my little siblings watching this. I can’t have kids watching this.

by Gamelover1.0 on 2021/12/02 15:34
Just recently they got rid of the dislike button. How am I supposed to know whether a video is clickbait or not? Or if it’s useful advice if it’s a tutorial video? The dislike button was a tool for people to use in order to find out whether the video was worth their time. Couple that with the increase in unskippable, two-in-a-row, 15 second ads and you start to notice how unbearable this app is starting to get.
Notifications grouped
by ingcaster on 2021/12/02 15:30
Notifications groups videos as “x uploaded y new videos”. And when I play the video, it puts in queue all videos uploaded by that channel in the last few hours. How do I ungroup them?
The Best Feature
by Mooncraftian on 2021/12/02 15:30
The best feature on the platform (the down pointing thumb, that way they don’t auto-remove this review), is gone. At this point, if I ever want actual informational videos, I can’t use YouTube anymore! Thanks guys, you’re so smart and innovative and you’re ALWAYS looking out for you creators and viewers!
Creators are the only thing making this app worth the download
by Jesse4DS on 2021/12/02 15:29
There is so many issues, overused ads, constant sex bots in comment sections (now being more than actual people in reply sections), removing the dislike button (I request that this goes both ways: if there is more dislikes than likes, then the like button is removed and vise versa), horrible copyright system for your benefit and not anybody else’s, and a lot more issues. This app is literally flawed in how people can even do this as a job. Your pushing your limits on how much longer you can add boundaries for. At this point, the app isn’t surrounded around the app itself, it’s the creators that make it worthwhile and the content THEY produce. Screwing them up can go back at you if the circumstances are right.

by D. Shipman on 2021/12/02 15:22
Amazing isn’t a good word, because too often people use words with excessive meaning to express meaningless things. Current YT is “good”. Not great, not terrible, but certainly NOT on the rise. From a dedicated consumer I cannot help but see the façade of care for small YouTubers you say but actions speak volumes, and the current iterations of this once great idea is currently tone-deaf to its community. No one blames you for running it as a business, but everyone despises the condescending way in which you treat us, by telling us what it is we want when an easy poll can say otherwise

YouTube has consistently every update shown how little they care about the creators and the consumers. They lie to us and show absolutely know transparency in their decisions. The only reason YouTube is still in business is because nobody has tried competing the moment someone does it’s over because YouTube will keep making idiotic decisions that help nobody but mega corporations and their competitor will actually do what a good company should.

by Masonloveshyperball on 2021/12/02 14:55
YouTube is making changes that they try to camouflage as being about caring for users when the real reason is because of politics, corporate interests and money. It’s disgusting. Getting rid of the dislike count moves YouTube closer to being like cable television… which everyone mostly abandoned for things like YouTube. YouTube, you too can go the way of MySpace and cable. I love the people creating content, but the people controlling the app are amoral scum bags.

I cannot see dislikes anymore. I often use YouTube for “how-to” perform very niche work on computers. Now they have removed a valuable tool for evaluating the validity of all how-to videos. Their choice to remove dislikes from view was a very poor idea. I have rated this app at one star, and am happy to change or amend in the future if they change their ways.

Ads are both falling in quality and increasing in quantity, they removed the dislike button, and if I make a vertical video on my phone, I have to make it long or risk it being a short and not counting for watch time. If you want a good YouTube experience, go on your computer and get the dislike and Adblock extensions.

Use to be a great app. Now it’s filled with ads to the point where you watch more ads then actual content. They removed the dislike button. Now you can no longer see which videos are worth watching. You may be stuck watching a very unhelpful tutorial and then have to spend more time watching another one to see if it’s what you need. It’s gotten worst over the years and honestly it be great if there wasn’t a monopoly of a video sharing platform.

However, I leave my review at one stars in both protest of the removal of the dislike count and as a reminder that YouTube must still be held accountable for its policy changes and must act on the base of actual creators, not corporate ones. Return the dislike count, YouTube.

by fuiyfuffudfuuffu on 2021/12/02 14:08
The removal of the dislike counter has already made YouTube a less enjoyable source of content. Within a week I am already seeing a influx of low quality, clickbait, and scam content. The lack of the dislike counter means that quality and reliable content posted by smaller channels has been pushed out of the algorithm to make room for clickbait and scam videos. The removal of dislikes is a decision most likely done for the potential of more income, rather than the communities well being. That is all I have to say, thank you for reading.
The dislike button
by jacb.itcenter on 2021/12/02 14:07
Hi YouTube I wish I could give this review a one star rating because of how unwise this decision is, seriously YouTube do you want to become unusable. Not only do dislikes help people to not waste time and to learn if that video is possibly not entirely factual or good information but it allows people to create a way of rating wether or not that creator is doing good for the public to see and then they can take that and form their own opinion. You have said that you’re for the user or the public but you have shown countless times that that is simply untrue and frankly it seems you care more for big corporations or for yourselves when you get called out. Google the person who currently is running YouTube is doing a terrible job and is ruining the platform and going to lose you money because of their inability to make good decisions. they’ve got no right to be in the position they have now and should be fired and replaced . YouTube used to be a platform for people to share beliefs but you censored certain groups. It used to be a way for people to share things they loved and make it into a job but now you’ve made it so much harder for them. It used to be a place where people were banned for things actually wrong now it’s who can get reported the most times until they receive three strikes. Today it used to be a place where people could vote on whether the information was good or bad and create a talking pint on that and to criticize and grow as a platform and now you’ve taken that away from the public. You are so disappointing.

REALLY AMAZING HOWEVER
by bokfhbihimjkhlyjl on 2021/11/26 04:58
I really enjoy this app, I love how it works. I know this is my third one, but I haven’t made one in a long time I think this deserves. So basically, some of my videos get copy right claimed, okay, that happens when I don’t credit. HOWEVER, I did credit, and I really don’t understand how I got copyrighted when I already credited. This really gets annoying, I suggest double checking and checking the description or comments or titles for whether I put the credit. If I don’t, that is perfectly fine for the copyright, also, sometimes I don’t know who made it even with a bunch of research, most people that I saw do the same song or meme or whatever barely credit either, so it’s hard to find the original even when searching whether I can find the original, because people are like “not original” I get that, it makes it harder though. I explain on the video whether I can credit or not, but I know to say I have no right to say I own the thing, and that it’s not original, and that if anyone knows the original, could tell me. It’s not that hard to understand whether I credited or not.
A Few Annoying Problems...
by ME I SENT THIS! on 2021/02/11 03:30
I’ve been using this app for years and it has been great. It works well and is a nice quality app. I have a few problems though, and it has to do with the subscription tab. The first problem is that it will often say that someone has posted (showing a little blue dot on their icon) but they haven’t. No big deal, but if I click it to make the blue dot go away, then go back to a different tab (such as the home) it will put the blue dot back. That makes it so there is a red dot on the subscription button which just bothers me. It also usually happens to people with less that 1k subs. The second problem I have is that I don’t get all community posts. I am subscribed to a lot of people, and a good amount of them make posts regularly. Maybe this is supposed to happen, but I don’t get them all, and I would like to. The last problem (which I find more funny) is that when I click all to see everyone I am subscribed to, it shows everyone as normal. But, if I leave the app and come back, or slide up on my phone (to show brightness or flashlight) it will switch around the names so that they do not match the right person. Other than these three problems, the app is amazing.
Please add an update
by PeteGunk on 2021/09/22 23:24
I don’t know if anyone else has this problem but I cannot see the comments on the videos. My notifications center has gone to the size of the vertical version, and even when I turn my device vertical, it still doesn’t fit the notifications in full screen. The comments one just recently happened, and it really annoyed me because I like looking at comments while watching videos. Plus, I was currently arguing with a homophobic 7 year old and wrote an entire paragraph, yet it wouldn’t send, and when I restarted my device, the comments weren’t showing up, on any video. I restarted it again, and nothing changed. I request an update to fix this problem because it really affects my enjoyment. Another thing is that it turned off notifications for comments, people replying to comments, and videos. It also turned off notifications for all of the people I was subscribed to with notifications, and when I tried to fix it, it turned off my notifications for them again. I tried fixing it again and again, but nothing worked. There are still times when it works, but not often. So I beg you, please fix these things. Especially the comments.

My husband and I are from Portland Oregon and Fort Bragg is my hometown of 20 years. Thanks to a good friend of mine, more like family…..she asked if we wanted to join your book study on 1 Samuel 11. Well we love Jesus, and I had just began to have a disgruntled moment, and what better way then to get out of worldly moments then to remember that Jesus is driving. Those doors that were not open for me were because God didn’t want them to be. He wants me to look a little harder to find the ones that are open, the ones that He has open for me, so I am where He needs me to be, not where I want to be. Amen to the scripture tonight, because we do not have to follow the enemies snares because we are doing what we think is good for us. We can stop and align with Jesus, be a little patient and remember just because we don’t understand it, Jesus does ❤️ Thank you for going live, it helped not one but 2 people tonight, my husband 😂😂😂, I’m in a good mood so he is safe😂😂 God Bless you ~Michelle & Jereby ~

I hate the new update for the comments. I hate having to press something just to go trough the comments. I would rather scroll down then tap on the bar thing. I hate when the videos are really big i like it how it used to be. Please change it. Hi again! I have some issues I would like to address! So on the Ipad im begging to have community posts able to be seen. Just make it like the phone but wider. Its stressing me how much I miss stuff because people normally post on the community post option. I have to go on my phone just to see it. Another one is PLEASE update the notification area. It use to be amazing before until you guys changed it. I am not going to lie but you people are ruining your app to the worst. I don’t wanna come off harsh or anything but it is very annoying. I am gonna keep my rating on 4 stars till you guys improve. For now it’s staying on 4. Another issue is the search thing glitch (i think glitch). It would just not let me delete my search or click on it. I have no idea why but i would like to no because its annoying me a lot. I wanna say thank you for your time!
Playlist needs to be fixed
by Trihexian on 2021/09/23 08:06
I just updated this earlierYesterday on September 22, 2021 and the app itself I really don’t like the new update to it because I watch lol playlist or videos sideways so I can see it easier and a bigger screen than just watching in a smaller version standing in portrait mode and because of this new update my video playlist or the description will now be in the right hand side of the screen in full screen mode when you watch the movie as the screen is divided into two parts left-hand side will be the video itself and then the right side will either be a playlist if you’re watching a video on a playlist or I will just be description of the video itself and it’s very irritating especially in a playlist as I try to sometimes fast forward and when I try to do that I end up hitting a video in the playlist and it goes to that or when I try to hit close so I can see the rest of the video, when I go back to re-open the playlist because I listen to some movies on repeat and after 5-10 minutes the playlist itself is not on the screen anymore and I have to close the video and go back and open my playlist all over again.
My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!!
by Ann the Angel on 2021/11/20 01:52
I have a playlist for music that has over 1000 videos in it and it won’t update anymore in the library section, when I press library and scroll down after adding a new song to my playlist I don’t see it, and if I make a new playlist sometimes I won’t see it there either. I thought of making a new playlist but I don’t know how I’ll make a new playlist and transfer 1000+ videos onto it manually. I now normally have to go to my channel profile, click the playlists tab, sort by newly added to and then *maybe* I’ll get to see my music playlist but sometimes it just flat out tells me “you have no crated playlist” when I know for a fact I do, so I have to redo the whole process over again multiple times just to see my playlist because it won’t show up in the library playlists, please fix this. Also gotta add on yet again that I’ve been seeing a lot of homophobic and racist videos that aren’t removed, you can’t even report videos unless you watch them first and you can’t report channels either because the button doesn’t even work when you go to submit the report, and from what I saw on twitter it seems like you’re just trying to defend low life’s at this point, get it together.
Fine, but one detail..
by Pencilsn on 2021/02/08 06:16
The app functions about as well as any app does. It’s nothing revolutionary, and I do think it’s gotten better, at least on the iPad version. However, there’s one issue (that really just annoys me more than anything.) On the bottom row, on the corner of the icon that indicates subscriptions, a red dot will appear to (I’m guessing) notify you that there’s a new video from someone you’re subscribed to. But most of the time, the red dot appears even when there’s nothing new. It’ll go away when you click on it and are in the subscription box, stay away when you go to a different page, but randomly appear again shortly after. Typically it’s when you refresh any page, but I’ve seen it reappear out on nowhere for no reason when I’m just browsing. It’s super annoying to think there’s something new when there isn’t. It’s such a tiny problem, but if you think about it, so’s a mosquito. That little subscription alert that shows up for no reason is like getting bit by a mosquito over and over and over again. I’m covered in bites and very aggravated. Thank you.
Good app but advertisement overload
by ScarletSkies4 on 2020/09/16 07:05
I understand the need for advertisements but it’s to the point now that it’s negatively impacting my experience. Now that there’s two, back to back ads in every break it’s irritating how much I have to interact with the app just to finish watching the video. The more I use the app the worse the experience gets. I usually like to use the app while doing other things like cooking or cleaning. I mostly listen and don’t always have my phone in hand. In an 11 minute video with 6 ads, the middle break had a 30 second unskippable ad followed by a 2 minute ad that was skippable. Unless I am physically on my phone to return to the video that would be 2:30 minutes of ads just for 1 of 3 ad breaks in an 11 minute video. It’s overload. I get that using the free version means you gets ads but it’s overshadowing the content. I don’t want to interact this much with something I’m watching. It’s not a game app. Guess I’ll just stick to watching it on the desktop with my ad blocker. Otherwise, yeah YT is ok. They’re just getting into Pandora territory which is disappointing. Didn’t mind the ads until recently.
FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE
by Jo Seph GD on 2021/02/09 00:29
Since the latest update (which was 2 months ago, uncharacteristic from the normal weekly bugfix updates), I've been running into issues more and more. The two largest issues I've been running into: -Endcards in fullscreen: For some reason, endcards are placed way too far down in fullscreen, making them unreachable or very hard to reach. This is really annoying, but manageable. -Links in the Description: This is the an issue I've run into recently. Essentially, links in the description that lead you to other parts of the app are unclickable, showing you that indeed it knows you are clicking on it, but it fails to link you to the page that you clicked on. These issues could've been solved as soon as they were discovered, but it turns out that Google decided not to update the app for a specific reason: they'd have to give further privacy info, due to a new App Store requirement enforced after the day that the latest updates for all the Google apps came out. (They haven't publicly confirmed this, but it's very likely that this was the case.) So I ask Google: Get your act together, and fix your app!
the new update
by Mahalhaaa on 2020/05/16 06:34
this new update is absolutely atrocious. i understand having innovation towards wanting more for your viewers but the execution was poor. The comment section is where I could be able to talk and relate to the interest of video and as i scrolled down i could potentially see the other videos that i wanted to watch. Moving the comments under the description is problematic because 1. it’s easily missable 2. it made going/making a comment more difficult 3. the fluidity of scrolling for other videos and going to the comments made sense 4. having the back button on the left side (in addition to muscle memory of clicking on the newly “escape” right side) makes it plain tedious. the thumbnails are also an issue because they are too large. one video thumbnail alone takes up almost half the screen and with two of them it takes up the whole screen. less is more, and bigger doesn’t always mean better. please consider reinventing the layout because it’s problematic having people used to one idea and completely changing it.
Crappy and overtly finicky interface
by Tommy6727 on 2019/09/29 04:08
Oh you slightly shook your phone... k skip go to random video. You want to back, tough crap another random video. Hey you want a feature no one asked for like swiping a video to go to a new random video because pressing the next button was obviously too tiresome - you go it! Oh too bad this will constantly activate when your moving your phone or putting in your pocket. Oh another great feature is let’s completely obscure the last couple of seconds of every video with random crap popups of other rando videos that might be related to what you were watching because who really wanted to watch the ending of whatever clip they were watching right?! I mean it’s not like the ending of a story is important. I know when i read a book i just throw it in the dumpster like 5 pages before the end because nothing important happens at the end. Whomever made this craptastic app should have their iPhones confiscated for life. Worst app ever
I hate the ads
by Prelly33 on 2021/09/17 04:17
Seriously I hate the ads. They’re overwhelming and intrusive. And no it’s not better “controlling” the ads with Google settings. That does nothing but ask me if I want random ads or tailor made ads. Tailor made ads engineered to encourage me to buy things I may like but in reality shouldn’t be blowing money on at an addicted rate on. Sorry I’m not Jeff Bezos, let alone employed. How about this, I will buy those things, from those ads, from the companies you’re partners with to host these ads, allegedly some creators are being hypocritically harmed by certain ads but I digress; if you agree and Google agree to pay me and others interested in being paid to watch all these ads on all our devices in our homes. I’ll shut the heck and play all your ads. Yes I write this angry but this is a lot of frustrations built over the years since the dawn of the ad-pocolyspe. Also stop with the recommendations and let me see my freaking subscriptions first. Oh and fix your stupid algorithms. You’re already loaded and backed by Google so get it together! If humans can make A.I. Create websites surely your staff of humans can create a better algorithm. Until then I’m here for the content creators not your stupid ads!
I listen to the rain videos all night to sleep with and have subscribed to at least 100 sites.
by pcdavis80 on 2021/11/10 08:33
I have so many interests from cooking Keto, the adventures of Marc Abel from Colorado Bigfoot and Adler Farms to name just a few. Some of the sites I visit feel more like family like The Hillbillies, Colorado Bigfoot, Grandpa From Adler Farms and more. I am grateful that it is free and all I have to do is watch sales pitches because have found some good purchases and items because of You Tube advertisements from awesome walking shoes that I also bought for my sister who loved them to an electronic that increases the charge on your phone battery in minutes. Thank you for providing use, the subscribers with such a great platform. I do have one issue that concerns me and that is censorship but I believe that issue will iron out when the next administration is elected. I had thought about boycotting you tube for the practice but have decided to wait and see what happens for now.
Ads
by SynthWendigo on 2020/07/16 19:47
They push quite literal porn ads for adult mobile games, often using footage for something else entirely to pretend it’s not adult content, and then demonetize any creator who says anything outside of their radical left leaning biased. I get so many targeted ads for alcohol based on my age and location and have NO way to shut those down, and I can’t even use their support page, as I am greeted with an error saying I am not authorized to view that page. As someone who deals with drinking problems, and autism that’s forced me to stop playing games with predatory monetizing in place, seeing these ads constantly really does impact me in a negative way. Including the GTA Online ones of their Diamond Casino adverts of come in to spin the wheel for a chance to win a new car. I only bother to watch on my iPhone, and I don’t like being harassed to buying Premium just to NOT be bombarded with ads promoting gambling, alcohol abuse, and the adult mobile titles. I get they are targeted toward my age, but seeing beer adverts at 4 am is entirely out of line.
Alright, but flawed in fundamental ways
by Sevallis on 2020/10/22 22:28
The iOS app constantly forgets the actively playing background video when I lock the screen, and even if it appears on the lock screen to pause/play, trying to start and stop it via Bluetooth headphone burins also constantly fails and instead starts playback of something random from my Music app. This apparently will never be fixed? Not being able to listen to video from my locked phone without paying a bunch of money monthly is rubbish and just eats up battery life. Also, when I swipe a video down and then go to close it, get rid of that stupid bounce animation that moves it if I had just liked a video. That animation makes me miss the X close button due to it moving around and getting bumped by other notifications. Make the other notifications come up above the video at the bottom and not move the playing video minimized strip, and make it instantly move to the bottom predictably so I don’t miss the close button and re-maximize it.
Not user-friendly
by Jbmore2005 on 2021/10/20 23:30
I think the app Is really good, I use it every day but there are some features that drive me nuts. The one feature I hate the most but I wish there was an option to turn off the feature where on your home page or subscribed channels and some others, on where it shows the Picture of a video before you select it, if you let it sit there for a couple seconds it starts playing the video on the Area where the pictures is. I might seem overdramatic but that feature drives me out of my mind, I just wanted to where I can see the picture and if it says some thing on there I can read it and not have to worry about it starting the video on me, I just wish there was a option to turn that off. one other thing I would prefer there to be is more options as in When something is added to the app and you don’t like then it would be nice if there was a way to turn it off instead of being forced to have it. Other wise I think the app is pretty good just a little more user-friendly would be great thanks.
You Tube is no longer a service provider but a ideological machine
by LT Greek on 2021/09/19 04:08
At one time I considered being a You Tube Creator before the dark times, before the demonetization of perfectly valid, legal and even wholesome content! Now you seem to be agenda driven ideologues. You drive creators off the platform who teach firearm safety, safety assembly and disability of firearms for example. The knife collector and reviewers are afraid to use the term knife in fear they will get a Strike for violating some vague You Tube policies that no one but you knows, I believe you make up on the fly, and then will not disclose to the creators when they ask what they violated. You demonetize creators yet run continue to run ad’s on their creation and turn around and say that you demonetized the channel because you fear advertisers will be offended! What a ratchet. Though I did lose some investment in equipment cost, I a certainly glad I saw this coming before I got locked into this scam and ideologically driven propaganda. I only stay here because of the creators that I enjoy, remember that. I am not here because its You Tube. I come here to be entertained and informed by creators I enjoy watching. Once you drive them off then I am gone, not hat you care.
Watch Later
by Shreyas21 on 2021/01/27 06:04
Watch later playlists now only load 20 videos even if I use a different sort by function. If I use oldest or newest, only 20 videos show up. If I switch to manual, I only have access to those 20 videos. Every other playlist seems fine. This is one update annoyance. Furthermore, you moved the subscriptions to the 4th button from the left after years of it being in the center. I am tired of having to close the creator / record / upload screen after naturally choosing to click the center most button, WHERE YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG. we got used to the comments even tho the UI within comments is garbage, and now you do this. Do you like making the app worse or are you just messing with us at this point. At best I could argue that it improves RAM and cache usage due to not loading everything unless demanded. A good idea done with poor execution is still a poor idea.
The End
by soothsayer 🎱 on 2021/02/21 15:52
What has happened to YT is tragic. I have been a fan and member since the second year it came out, if I’m not mistaken. I’ve been on so long that I originally signed up with AOL bc that was the only thing available at the time. That’s how long I have been on YT. So I am a loooong time member and fan. It used to be one of the best things that has ever happened to the internet. It was fun, exciting, mysterious, educational and groundbreaking. NOT ANYMORE. It is now a shell of its former self. It is now like everything else. Created only to make money. Ad after ad after ad. It’s an invasion. I am interested in what people have to say or what they made or did. Now it’s, insurance ads, political ads, censorship and control. It’s worse than “reality shows” and reality shows are by far the absolute worse thing ever. I used to spend countless hours on it, now I spend less than an hour per week...if that. Horrible. I’m just like everyone else...I’m moving on. The sad thing is that YT doesn’t give a blip about what I think or what any of us think. This has been proven by its continued status of nonsense and greed. Every update is NOT to fix a glitch it’s to place a fresh batch of ads! No thanks. I’m out!
So many problems
by Gjvthxffeesxbgf on 2020/07/19 07:51
The loading times can be pretty awful. Whenever I switch to a different tab or turn off my phone and play the video I was currently watching, the video takes sooo long to load when I unpause it. This doesn’t occur when I’m using the app and I don’t get why it happens when the app is running in the background. I understand why ads are a thing and this hasn’t been a problem before but now it feels like overkill. Every time I watch a video an ad pops up. Sometimes they’re 15 non-skippable ads and at its worst there’s two. And look, taking away the comments for videos that have been COPPA’d is one thing and removing the mini player is another. It makes no sense. I don’t get how this would be harmful for kids. And the way you decided what videos are for kids is awful. Some of creators have moved on from their channels so when you automatically decide their videos are for kids it removes a whole decade of comment sections. And I hate how I have to worry about my niece stumbling upon two anime girls talking about sex because you automatically decided all animation is for kids.
Opens up an encyclopedia of vision learning !
by dL💕gJ on 2021/11/14 15:54
We really depend on You Tube to learn how to make , fix and build things !!! Especially if the directions we bought them with are scant or in another language ;) ( think kids toys , faucets, murphy beds …) It has introduced us to all kinds of subjects ( cooking , Montessori learning , gardening on all levels, bee husbandry, soap and craft making, even the best way to teach an anxious teen to drive ! - ) we love the hard working knowledgeable people we see! My family also depends on faithful freedom of speech politically, allowing people to make up their own minds along the way . Especially with careful viewing , analyzing and conversation about subjects histories. I have heard of U tube censoring or dropping a chosen video in histories and really hope careful protocol has gone into this practice . I guess we all need to look at our 2nd amendment. Unless, of course , its about hacking . Ugh Thank you U Tube- you have enriched our lives and reduced frustration here on many levels !
This is the best app, just a few problems.
by GAHHAJANSTAKQHAIAIJAUA on 2021/05/20 21:56
Google, thank you for making this amazing and work well app. But I have 4 issues. It takes some time to load, when I watch a video, and now I get almost 5 adds at the same time. Another issue is, when I post it says to many strikes. I hate that! Because I had 1K but, then I got a strike, and I decided to quit since I couldn’t post anymore, please fix it. The last reason is, when I’m watching a vid, and I go to there channel, I tap videos but, then it takes me back to home page. Please fix this app google! It’s good in many ways, but I just don’t like how it can effect our account or even email, this made me really scared and sad, please google! Fix this! I don’t want to have to keep retrying after getting 3 strikes, and I have 1 idea, that google didn’t do, maybe you could put an content tab, and you answer what you want and ur youtuber can do that type of content. BUT! GOOGLE PLEASE FIX THIS APP WHEN I RESTARTED I ONLY GOT 14 subs back! I’m really sad about this. I want this problem fixed.
Scary video’s 😱😰
by Norah05 on 2021/02/23 22:01
The videos there are super creepy one had a video of someone taking a video with their house lights off and there was a shadow that moved but when they turn on the lights nothing was there and there are a lot of ghost videos too so if you’re an adult or a kid that really loves scary stuff you can download that but I don’t think even adults can take that but then again adults can but kids I don’t think so if you have this app and you don’t like the scary videos try to search for videos that aren’t scary but if there are no videos that are not scary then just delete it I’m saying that if you luck getting scared go ahead and delete it but here’s what I’m saying this app is super scary and people like scary some people not all of them so this is just a warning ⚠️ getting scared 😱 is fun but only on Halloween and people in here recorded ghosts 👻💀so only download if like getting scared 😱!
These fix these problems
by shadow prism on 2021/04/28 05:50
Number one I’m listening to music and there’s a holding guard column playlist why did you scatter each playlist all over the place leave it in one column make a scattering it is hard to fine just leave it in one column where is easy to go to problem number two what’s with the new quality settings and high-quality mid quality why can’t we just pick a specific settings you need to fix this setting right now because we want to specific said we don’t want to automatically go to 480 P to 1080 P we wanna pick on the settings for like 720 p 360 p I had 360 P we want to optimize our own settings for resolutions and you’re taking that away from us Number three ads they’re seeing multiple times and we can’t get rid of them it’s really annoying TheAds but you can’t skip is basically the same at Ads playing over and over again and it at a point it gets annoying for example the Verizon ads that really gets annoying you need to stop that
I have an idea for the inbox tab
by Stoocy05 on 2020/06/08 11:10
I love using the app so much, and other than the comment section being moved, it’s great. I have an idea, though. What if you change the way the “Inbox” tab works? Like when you click the “Inbox” tab, there are two separate tabs on the top. One should obviously be for new videos from your subscription feed and the other should be notifications from comments you’ve left. I tend to comment quite a lot and often find myself scrolling through many videos in my inbox just to find the comment I’m looking for. I also know that many don’t like commenting, so that tab will be kinda useless for them, but what if you make it an option for the users in settings? It would really improve user experience, especially those like me, who like commenting a lot. It would be nice to see this implemented in the app!
Like app BUT
by cay-os on 2020/02/15 22:43
I actually like this app most of the time, however now that my son likes to watch movies and we have watched the ones we have at home like 300 times each I wanted to let him watch new ones on my phone. Due to the amount of data it takes, we don’t live near any WiFi connections and I only have my phone to view them on, I wanted to down load it to watch later with out using more data. Unfortunately, I am unable to down load any movies rated for children. Now this seems ridiculous to me I would think it would be the other way around where some could not down load rated r movies so kids can’t just down load bed movies at will. I think it would be better if we could at least down load kid movie with a pass word or something if we can prove we are the parent at least come on that is why I use you tube to see music videos and so my son can see kid movies. But I only 5G so he can’t watch his favorite ones two or three times because it used all my data, To bad I really did like this app but now I don’t use it very much.
Downloads/Premium
by 김 재넌 on 2020/10/28 13:21
For days now it keeps deleting my downloads. I’ve downloaded over 200 videos and now they’re gone. Twice. I don’t know if it’s the update, but you need to fix this. I’m paying almost $17 and it doesn’t even work right. I keep re-downloading them, but a couple hours later, they’re gone. First it says it’s having trouble loading them, then it straight up deletes them. This is one of the big features I use and if it keeps doing this I might as well cancel the subscription. And don’t get me started on the ‘no ad’ feature. Every time I go on a different device on the same account I have premium on, I get ads. I’m actually starting to get annoyed. I use the downloads to listen to music offline. Each time I go offline; “Cannot load downloads” and then, “No videos downloaded.” Please fix this because it’s a long process to download all of the videos back onto my device. If anyone is going to get premium, do not buy it until they fix this issue.
Stagnant monetized development
by iPhone iConnoisseur on 2020/09/27 06:25
I have been a premium subscriber for a while now, so as new capabilities become available, I can understand the desire to monetize to create a variation between premium and non subscribing. The thing is that exists with ads and services such as TV. The biggest reason I got premium is I didn’t want to see ads for things I didn’t care about. That is the same reason I didn’t get TV, I don’t care about it. The desire to limit things such as PIP as to not lose the differences between paid and non is becoming ridiculous. Now, in the struggle to control background playing on iOS, google has safari crash if it is a non paying account trying to use PIP on mobile safari. Personally, that is kind of rude, and Apple should fix it in a patch because safari force crashing is in my opinion a iOS bug. No website should have that much control over your browser and OS. Apple? My gripe is that the app doesn’t have the functionality. Seriously? I’m already paying for it. Why do I have to use safari as a paid subscriber? It is this type of account greed that ruins companies.
Garbage on iPad
by Really_tried on 2019/08/16 22:39
Going full screen, moving around the video, or just have a transition from the video to the ad will almost guarantee that the whole app will glitch out. Not only do I have to exit out and close the app multiple times to fix the problem, I have to wait for the sounds from the ad/video to stop playing-even after I exit the app-then go back in and have everything back to normal. I also have to click on the notification feed multiple times until it registers that my inbox has already opened and stop displaying that number on top of the icon, which is the number of new videos uploaded by channels I have the bell ringed. And lastly, there is just no support for the implementation of the community feed on the iPad, even though other devices do. It’s just stupid. Garbage company, garbage decisions, garbage staff. Vimeo is looking better than ever.
UI was better before
by kkone1517 on 2020/05/13 19:32
The video quality itself isn’t the problem lately but it’s the changes to the comment section and recommended videos that I just can’t get behind. For me, and many others a big part of the experience is being able to look at comments and easily jump between other’s reactions and thoughts on the video, along with easily being able to jump between time stamps listed in the comments and the video. Now, it’s far too easy to overlook the comments altogether since they tend to blend in with the description or even get overlooked as part of an ad. It’s also ridiculously easy once you’ve clicked to look at replies to a comment to exit out of them completely since the X just closes them all instead of that specific comment, which makes it all supremely annoying to navigate. It would be good to give the option to toggle back to a “classic” view at least, since it isn’t only the comments, but also the recommended videos that are troublesome to look through as well. Really, have they never hear of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”?
Can’t change my PFP
by khalid nazari on 2020/12/31 05:12
Hi so today i decided to change my Profile Pic but when i clicked “save” nothing would happen even if i hit “Cancel” still nothing would happen, it would just stay on the screen where you make you’re new profile pic, please fix this Edit: Hi again, i would like to tell you that i still cannot change my Profile Pic, I don’t know why one of the biggest apps in the world right now can’t even take Changing your Profile pic, i tried deleting the app so i could test if i can Change my PFP if i had installed it again, and the answer is no, And listen i know it’s not that big of a deal it’s just a Profile pic but come on! I have to completely close the app in order to get out of the screen that you choose your new pfp because the stupid cancel and save buttons don’t work even if you press them a million times.
YOU TUBE MUST REMAIN IMPARTIAL FOR ALL
by Wowie Waui on 2020/12/10 14:12
Please remain impartial and non-partisan. Let the people have their voice from both sides. The truth will set us all free. Some videos may be false and debatable and some might be made for the purpose of telling or showing the truth. Let the viewers have their own free will to chose what to believe in or not. As human beings maybe this is the way that we evolve to be better species where in everyone can share thoughts and beliefs to everyone and let the world tell their opinions about it. The world has the power now has the power to reveal the facts and false narratives in the same platform and let the world judge or COMMENT ABOUT it. The makers of the videos will also realize that if their VIDEO UPLOAD is not being appreciated/approved/supported by the rest of the world or by the whole world. Just let people upload and let the rest of the world react to the videos. In this way we as humans have an OPEN DIALOGUE and OPEN DISCUSSION. Whether good or bad the human race will be evolving through this way.
Comment Likes no longer go up. Fix it!
by David Wonn on 2020/10/26 18:29
It took a while of seemingly endless update loops but the app finally finished an update. So far, some issues seem to be addressed, such as an active video in the lower right obscuring the ability to tap the 3 dots to the right of some videos at the end of long lists, such as Watch Later history and so on. Upon further review, the Videos tab on every channel is blank, regardless of how you sort. That’s a MAJOR bug. [Edit: They have since fixed this, so I’ll bump up the rating.] I like having the new ability to view replies to my comments on other videos without interrupting watching an unrelated video. I also like the addition of ¾ and 1¾ speed multipliers on videos. Unfortunately some videos now get paused when moved to the lower right corner, though this behavior is inconsistent. Also I’ve seen delays on comments in live streams going as far as nine (9!) minutes with only a few hundred or so people in chat. Also I have my fonts magnified due to poor vision, and for some reason, bold text in comments on videos is unusually small. So with the forced update, some things improved, and some didn’t. Update 10/26: This app routinely removes my likes on comments shortly afterward. I remove the like and re-like it, and the counter is fixed, then it decrements. It is so obvious when I’m the only one who liked someone’s comment, only to see the number "1" vanish shortly afterward. Fix your app!
Dislike feature
by Flowzn8r on 2021/11/28 03:17
The recent removal of the feature allowing viewers to longer have the option to see the dislike count of a video lowers the overall quality of the app. This feature was supposedly meant to prevent creators from beings the victim of targeted harassment which is not a problem in the community whatsoever. The videos that would receive a ratio of more dislikes than likes most likely receives the dislikes due to the fact the videos are most frequently misleading, hateful, or display another feature of a video that should not be watched nor is it worth watching. YouTube’s removal of this feature now prevents users from determining the overall quality of the content they wouldn’t have to view had they been able to initially view the count for dislikes. Furthermore, the amount of likes on a video should also no longer be viewable by the audience due to the fact that this increases the chance of an audience member to like a video regardless of their true opinion. Overall YouTube’s recent decision making has been on a level that no company should be proud of.
Amazing app but tiny annoying features.
by WheresMyDad99 on 2020/10/15 22:45
I love this app. I have met many amazing people through it, and it’s sort of a pass-time mostly for me. The only things keeping me from giving this the 5 stars it deserves, are it’s new updates. I haven’t checked computer updates but on mobile description and comments are completely separate from each other. Instead of just clicking a button to read the description, it pulls it up completely covering everything else, same with the comments. Instead of just scrolling down, it is right by the top, which I don’t think is much of a problem other than confusing, but the fact that it takes up the entire bottom half of your screen if you click on it is annoying. I really don’t like having to take the time to click in and out of these. I really don’t care a ton or think it’s the end of the world, it’s just really annoying.
Awful bug!!!!
by madid503 on 2020/05/21 00:50
The app is absolutely amazing and I use it all the time. But there seems to be a bug job the app to where I can’t watch any music videos on the app with the original singing, all that pops up when I type in a song is the instrumental versions of the song then when I go to find other songs that I saved there is a little bar that pops up saying that the video must be approved first before I can view it but doesn’t give me the option to fix it. I haven’t been able to find any of the music I regularly listen to and I can’t even find singers accounts to view all their albums and music! It looks like everything has been totally deleted except for all of the instrumental versions which is absolutely not what I wanted to listen to. Also the comments, which I love to scroll through while the video is playing, is always saying that the comments have been restricted from my viewing because of some restriction mode that I didn’t even know was there let alone turned it on. PLEASE FIX 🚨🚧⚠️‼️
Great, Until-
by wet pomegranate on 2019/03/28 13:16
It’s great, until you realize that this app is supposedly “17+” rated, yet steals add revenue from its own creators, because they said something the moderators didn’t like. And as soon as the creators apply for an appeal for their video, that they spent hours making, it takes months for it to be even looked at, and at that point, all the possible revenue these people could have earned is gone. They’re also extremely biased. I’ve seen many channels I’ve watched taken down for little to no reason, yet showing a dead body on screen to make money off impressionable small children is acceptable? It took three days for that video to be removed, which is absolutely ridiculous considering if it was any other channel who had posted it, they would have the video removed instantly, and probably would have had their channel taken down. Also, bring back the recommendations when watching the videos. I can’t even think of a reason why they’d remove that feature, but I guess they just want to steal even more money from innocent creators who are trying to make a living.
Not happy
by sony234 on 2021/09/30 00:03
Very annoying issues.. subscription tabs red dot stays on even if there are no new videos. CAN WE HAVE A QUEUE OPTION PLEASE??? how hard is it to allow an option that already existed or exists now for streaming? Why can’t I put things in a queue to watch immediately and in a sequence rather than putting into Save for later and forgetting about it?? My save for later list is full now and because the app tries to automatically send videos to that list when you hit Save under a video, it doesn’t even let you pick which playlist to save it to if the list the full. It just shows a message that it’s full and doesn’t let you save it anywhere else from that page. I have to go find the video under the poster’s channel, click to the little three dots and then hit Save to playlist to avoid saving it to Save for later. Shorts has been nothing short of an infuriating mess that makes me leave the app. Recommendations in both Shorts or regular videos just stay uselessly stuck to either ONE channel or the same handful being recommended over and over.
Why can’t you just give the chance for people to try it before making it standard?!
by Shane Kinnear on 2020/05/12 04:37
The comments section getting moved is extremely annoying, I usually don’t use it and prefer just to have it out of the way but that’s not possible now. The thumbnails being larger for the up next and suggested videos is also a bit annoying cause I usually pay a lot more attention to the titles of videos instead of the thumbnail, the only reason I can imagine they were increased though is so you could show larger ads without getting complaints about that so good job your getting extra complaints thrown in now also. Just make a section in the settings for experimental features, have it go for up to a week when toggled and if people turn it off early or use it the whole time ask for a comment about it. You’ll end up having people who don’t leave comments but you’ll also have the chance to test the feature with more than just a focus group and possibly avoid some anger. If you do this you just need to make sure people know the section is there
Fair
by Jakejb2360 on 2019/08/12 21:32
I really don’t like being pestered into a subscription. And commercials or ads are now political can you remove them. I see so many political ads it makes me sick. Everyone of them is just so anti-Trump how about showing the advantages of having them in office and what they would do with their time in office. Like I want to hear how they would take care of our Communities and Country. And honestly it would really be nice to hear some ideas about their plans on what is really important like feeding our homeless winter is approaching and I just want to be able to see benefits of voting for them not more of that anti-Trump crap, it is getting old and it seems like all that is done anymore. Isn’t there more to USA then bashing Trump and his Administration. Show car Commercials plug some you tubers channel that may be of similar genre or subject. Can’t go wrong with food ads.
Good app back in the day
by wtfmain on 2020/09/24 21:55
The links to videos has gone way down hill, especially on the app in the last few years. The app seems to only suggest something I have already looked up or seen for the most part, and suggests things that I have little to no interest in when it comes to things other than music, although this has been slightly better in the last few months it’s still a far cry from how good it was in the past. Furthermore it seems that now some videos are removed for there content while other videos that display similar ideas or problematic content, but from a different view are left up for some reason. If one person saying or doing something is deemed not ok then another person with the direct conflicting points of view must also deemed not ok, or else the is a one sided landslide effect that occurs. A truly open form for differing opinions, ideas, and beliefs of all is the only way for an online community to flourish.
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.
Nonexistent comments section
by jfkwxn on 2020/06/08 23:03
I've heard about the new update where video comments were moved to a different part of the page, which bothered me a little but not too much. However, when this app updated on my iPad, the comment section was completely removed and nowhere to be found. There is a button at the bottom of the recommendations that seems to redirect you to the new comments location, but when I tap on it, it just brings me to the original comments location, which is now entirely blank. I can't see comments other people posted, and I don't have the option to write a comment myself. I've made sure that it wasn't just that comments were disabled on the videos since I can see the comments on another device using the same account and same video. As someone who reads the comments as much as I watch the videos, I'm really disappointed and frustrated.
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.
Great app! Almost perfect
by EragonMax1995 on 2019/06/23 23:31
Like I said in the title, this app is soooo amazing! I have found so many funny videos, video game guides, music videos, etc, on here. But there’s only one problem and I believe it’s a bug. Sometimes I like to look and see what other videos are on here that are recommended for me, but I also like to watch videos or just listen to videos while I’m doin this, but after I add like maybe 4-5 videos to my certain playlists, the app just crashes on me. Please fix this cause it’s very annoying when it happens and I’d like to be able to continue finding new videos to watch while I’m also watchin another video at the time. If y’all fix that issue, there’s only one addition that I’d suggest you made to the app: a side button in the app that lets you see where your favorite YouTuber has commented or liked one of your comments on their video. If you can add that and fix the issue, this app will be perfect. Hope you’ll listen to my ideas.
Lots of problems but I still like it
by Emmybears6 on 2021/10/03 03:17
First of all, many people are saying the same problem but every time I upload a video and say no it’s not made for kids it keeps saying that the comments are turned off all of my videos that I’ve made is turned off comments. Next, every time I wanna watch a video(well not every time but at least once a day) when I’m watching a video and I am like in the middle of it (it Has to be a long video though) it just goes to the next video when it’s not the end. And the last problem, when I first watch a video then add it to my liked videos or my Watch later One day later the video goes blurry but the editor didn’t edit it after and I am logged into the same account on different devices and it still does that on the same video. All these problems I don’t know what’s causing it. I hope you can fix it. Thanks for reading
Updates = Decreased functionality
by Bobjtx on 2019/03/27 13:20
I have used this app a lot over the last 4 years. It has been a pretty good experience. However, I am not sure what is happening to human engineering at Google. Each new update seems to make the app less intuitive and more difficult to use. Ex: 1. Pausing a video to view something on the video in more detail (chart, text,...) is now impossible unless you know the hidden trick. Paused videos now darken the screen and place a LARGE play icon in the middle of the screen, making it impossible to view the paused video. This makes the large segment of teaching/how-to videos much less effective. 2. When saving a video, you no longer get to select where it will be stored. YT now stores it in the last used playlist. This requires you to stop, figure out how to pull up the saved video, and remove it from the wrong playlist YT saved it to, and then save it to the one YOU wanted it to go to. YT no longer thinks you are smart enough to know where you want to save the video. Youtube/Google engineers believe taking options away from users is some type of “improvement”?! Give me a break!! My recommendation is to no longer trust Google to do the right thing, and not accept YT updates until you research what less fortunate reviewers are reporting about each new update. It’s the only way to prevent losing useful features. And don’t even get me started on the increasing number of Ads YT is showing with almost EVERY video.
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
