Removed the dislike counter (now with bonus OLED burn in concern)
by Blustride on 2022/05/28 08:23
Youtube is bad about making pointless UI changes, but removing the dislike counter actually negatively affects the quality of the site. Update 28-05-2022: The gesture bar at the bottom of the screen for newer iPhones stays on the screen during video playback, even in fullscreen. After experiencing burn-in on every OLED screen I’ve owned in the past, I want fewer static elements on my screen, not more, plus it’s irritating to look at during a video. From what I can find this is enabled on a per-app basis by the developer, not systemwide, so please either disable the gesture bar during video playback or make it toggleable.

YouTube shorts…
by Hailye bear on 2022/05/28 05:24
I love YouTube but there are a few things that need to be fixed…so first up what’s with the pre video ads?! I don’t mind ads but it’s really annoying when they’re the first thing you get when you click on a video. Second YouTube shorts is great and all but recently it’s been showing me all the same stuff. I get the same vids over and over and over again no matter how many times I refresh or log out and it’s quite annoying. There’s some other stuff but those are the major things I have to say.
Ads
by Music Junky185 on 2022/05/28 05:09
Why ads every 5 mins YouTube.
Very Good

The 15 second ads
by waffleboy711 on 2022/05/28 04:38
Come on sometimes you can’t skip them and yes this is going to be a very short review but this is my only question OK please fix it work to where you can skip 15 second ads and you cannot skip six second ads because sometimes you can skip six second ads and that’s how long it takes for the ad skip to warm up so yeah fix that please and that’s it
So many issues
by SwimmingDem0ns on 2022/05/28 04:24
There’s always a problem and staff that controls monetization needs a refresh. So many ads now days and I can’t replace my phones battery anymore. Unless YouTube is willing to pay for new battery’s for everyone’s phones, remove them. A lot are pointless and I’m tired having inappropriate ads shoved down my throat.
Exellent
by Summercarrel on 2022/05/28 04:16
This is so amazing because there is so much to watch not only one thing to watch there’s hundreds of things I probably haven’t seen on YouTube it’s so big that we have more to explore on YouTube to be creative and have fun watching and enjoying new stuff that we haven’t experienced
Vary uhhh strange creators and comment people
by Not_yo_momma on 2022/05/28 04:15
So you see there are very good small creators that can be amazing but I personally think that this app is helpful but strangely there is inappropriate stuff on here that YouTube just tried to delete but they keep coming up very inappropriate stuff and I’ll watch this when I was very young me being curious and I was just normally watching it very strangely questions in my head people in the comments are putting hearts saying oh my God Chamor I love the music I just think you should very be careful about what you search on here and if you want to search that kind of stuff your time is disgusting :unless you are a little kid: it is OK to be curious just don’t recommend AT ALL and if you’re freaking creepy old man just watching this comment seriously just get the apps online freaking weirdo! OR GET A GIRL OHHHHH!!!
Each update ruins the app
by дасукааамьбгчтд on 2022/05/28 03:47
After every update of YouTube i’m afraid to open the app, what they going to ruin next? Less options when sorting videos in channel? Millionth update of interface which looks worse than before, and has tons of Day 1 bugs like interface buttons stacking on themself, just stop it, don’t delete things from your app, rather consider ADDING some new features, that’ll be great.

How do I begin? You’ve removed links in comments, old unlisted videos, annotations, and sorting by oldest first, not to mention OTHER things that I haven’t said by word. Can you actually listen to your audience for once instead of deleting critical reviews? Seriously, who chose wojikiki as CEO?

Nothing but spam channels
by ㆍa personㆍ on 2022/05/28 02:27
Whenever I open YouTube I keep getting spam channels and I don’t use YouTube often but when I do I watch a lot of YouTube shorts because they are funny but when I opened them a few days ago I had nothing but spam channels in the YouTube shorts it’s pretty annoying I used to find some role play and some gaming and or a YouTuber that does a mix of almost everything but I opened YouTube back up today it was the exact same just spam channels everywhere I reported some because I just got annoyed but I’ll report any acc that is a spam now because it’s annoying anymore

Unnecessary changes
by sydneybruh on 2022/05/28 01:39
Y’all stay making unnecessary, non-user friendly changes to your app. Who just thinks, “hey let’s move where the ‘Watch Later’ tab usually is, that’ll show them we did something”? Come on guys, just choose a layout for your app and stick to it. I don’t make videos and I don’t buy or rent movies on YouTube. If you won’t leave the Watch Later alone, at least give me the option to move the “your videos” and “your movies/shows” tab from the ever-so-convenient spot where my thumb goes. I miss when YouTube was customizable and fun, now it’s been eaten by capitalism.
Why is there so much adds

SSSniperwolf is a horrible person that ghosted a dying kid but had enough time to make a video of herself eating a 700 dollar dinner and YouTube let’s her stay even with thousands of YouTubers (7 very popular ones including Markiplier and Jacksepticeye). I refuse to watch YouTube anymore and I’ll just watch videos though Google now.

Yeah I get it… take your cut but do you really need to be that fiendishly and thievishly sleazy about it?
Obviously 5 star function, 3 star impartiality
by Angry and Afraid on 2022/05/27 20:24
YouTube, like the other biggest tech platforms, are not impartial to content and take every opportunity to demonetize and censor all but the most benign takes on current events. I encourage YouTubes developers (and whoever employs them) to re examine the first amendment of the US constitution and the philosophical principles and foresight that led them to begin the most successful experiment in human history.

YouTube why
by real buggy on 2022/05/27 17:52
1. (Partisanship) The removal of dislikes, literal censorship of comments that contain key words you don’t like (or from what i’ve seen from experience), and general favorship towards left-leaning youtubers jas lead to another social media platform becoming partisan and ruined. 2. (Bad Features) First of all, the red dot that shows a new video that someone uploaded is always there, even if a new video has not been uploaded. Second, Whenever I look uo something, it repeatedly shows stuff that have NOTHING to do with what I want to see. Thirdly, all sorts of minor bugs. You cant take a little bit of your time just pour a modicum of effort into cleaningup this mess? Absolutely pitiful.

Ads are killing this app
by Jimmy Hoffa on 2022/05/27 16:45
I love YouTube content, but the last 2 years have made the app unbearable. The amount of ads and the length of them is ridiculous! YouTube premium is too expensive and waiting 2 minutes for ads that aren’t relevant during a 10 minute video is a total waste of time. The results of surveys asking how annoying ads are clearly aren’t taken into account because I know everyone on here is thinking the same thing as me. At the very least, make ads skippable if they’re over 10 seconds long and I’ll happily change this review.
Thanks

YouTube’s current state in my view
by öóòö on 2022/05/27 16:25
YouTube recently removed dislikes which censored the community on the platform bu not allowing people to expressly voice their opinion on a video Second is the current type of YouTubers that have arisen, they’re these YouTubers who will abuse and spam the same ‘short’ hundreds of times which completely destroys the algorithm that YouTube has set up, another thing is that what these YouTubers are doing goes completely against YouTube’s TOC which clearly states that YouTube doesn’t allow short spam, but yet barely any of these channels have been taken down. Often many of these are exploiting younger audience members for their scams. YouTube seriously needs better management and a more clear TOC as people who have 100 or less subscribers are targeted and those repost YouTubers are left clean. Get it together YouTube 👍👍👎👎👎
Same issues never resolved
by hayes dennus on 2022/05/27 16:12
It has been an ongoing issue that I cannot remove my account from devices I do not have access to. For instance, I forgot to log out of my account in an Airbnb and now my account is being used without my permission and I have no way to log out as I am in a different state. I realize I should’ve remembered to log out, but you would think youtube would have the ability to remove your account from devices, like you can on many other apps.

Yes, I, as does everyone, have specific interests. Fortunately, I evaluate carefully what I watch in order to not to be swayed to one or another point of view. When watching I ask myself if the veracity of what is shown can be tested. If what is said is ‘circular’ or self-reinforcing, I suspect that there is an underlying deception going on that relies on a viewer’s willingness to accept untestable self-reinforcing statements as being the Truth. Self-reinforcing statements are circular, relying on an internal mis-use of language to defend itself from being tested from the outside. Lies, euphemistically called misinformation, can be fact checked from other sources, but self-reinforcing circular statements and opinions are fallacious and deceptive in their very structure by returning to proposals and statements as ‘conclusions’ that ‘prove’ the ‘truth’ of what is being said. We believe them because we cannot escape their internal ‘logic’—they cannot be tested or disproven. That doesn’t make them true; it only means that they cannot be tested objectively. Self-reinforcing statements and beliefs are very comforting because their internal ‘logic’ eliminates questioning, once one has allowed oneself to be hooked.
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.
Bring Back Downvotes
by hgighjb on 2022/05/12 04:30
Please stop the censorship. Let people communicate freely and decide for themselves what they think and feel. The internet has already become censored enough by the removal of comment sections and through rampant consolidation/mergers into monopolies or near-monopolies. Trying to direct comments into Twitter or Facebook forces people to join those sites which have become clearing houses for sale of people’s private information to companies and to massive profiling by the government. Both should be illegal. These aren’t the principals that America is supposed to be about and it will ultimately be bad even for the businesses that behave this way. Look at what’s happened to Facebook. Same thing goes for the music industry and traditional radio stations. Competition leads to innovation and improvement. Freedom of expression is essential to to our way of life, and censorship does not prevent people from understanding the truth. It just leads people to reject your business and destroys consumer confidence. People know that censorship of this type isn’t for the public’s benefit or for small content creators - it’s to protect powerful figures and special interests and to make the general public feel alone when they disagree with a message, or when they’re being lied to. Please do the right thing, it will work for everyone’s benefit. Thank you.
Great review thank you

Well explained I’ve been using all the topaz labs softwares but then I came across photo lab 5 and downloaded the free trial and I was blown away by all it’s features and the fact sorry I know it’s a video about comparing the Denoise from topaz and Deep Prime from photo lab 5 we can ignore the fact that with photo lab 5 you get noise reduction,you have features that do the same thing that the sharpen AI does as well all in one software only thing that you don’t have on photo lab 5 is gigapixel AI but it’s a tool that is not very often used so whatever I’m really thinking about getting DXO Lab 5 Pro and add to my collection of softwares I think that if you have the cash to spend and it’s very serious about photography you should have both,these are not toys are instruments of work that you can make that money back from your work,just make sure that you grab your camera at all times with you and keep shooting it’s when you less expecting that you can get some of the great pictures
Too many ads and too long
by Kokoemo on 2022/04/29 15:49
I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.
Comment section is screwy
by djafkldjalfkjdaklfjldkajfldas on 2022/02/26 20:09
Please, I am begging you, please put the comments back where they were, open at the bottom and not above the related videos in their own separate tab with one random comment showing. The description, too. Both of those things being in their own tab is annoying. The X button looking the same and having a different function now - changing to closing the whole comment section instead of a reply thread - makes no sense. At the very least, having the comment closing button on the right when most people are right handed and you're more likely to want to close replies instead of the whole entire comment window (whyy) is weird. I used to watch YT constantly while working/doing hobbies and I love reading comments and used to watch some videos multiple times while reading through them but I hate it and don't touch the app at all now unless I'm on my PC. I don't even need YT Red anymore I use it so little. I do miss watching stuff, though. I've always dreaded updating YT because every once in a while the comment section changes to this awful format for a bit for some reason. Really, any other issue I'd have with the app is overshadowed by this. (This was wasn't a wall of text but submitting it killed my formatting, sorry.)
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!
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.
Concerned about censorship and other issues.
by Group1-OG on 2022/04/09 07:51
Why demonetize and/or limit profit on content that isn’t child friendly when there’s a whole other app for that? Why demonetize and age restrict content creators for one explicative in their videos when multiple music videos showcase soft core nudity and are notably more explicit while having none of those restrictions? Why put multiple ads in the MIDDLE of videos when there’s up to 3 at both the beginning and end of a video? Not only are you wasting more bandwidth and space for yourself, you’re actively discouraging people to support your app. On top of that, why the 15 second unskippable advertisements? Why not just leave the unskippable ads at the 5 second length? And why double them? Not only that, you put ads on videos that are SHORTER than said advertisement. It’s even further discouraging your support and makes you seem more unappealing and unappreciative of your popularity while decreasing your utility. This is why you’re being more a disappointment than parents of a delinquent child, and like a delinquent child you’re putting minimal effort, if any at all, to remedy your issues.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing app! But new update ruined it.
by Big problem with game on 2021/12/14 23:46
And no, this is no because of the dislike feature being removed, though I do find that a really dumb idea overall. This is about how you KEEP PUTTING THINGS ON THE SIDE. First it was with descriptions, which I did find annoying, but not the end of the world. This however, is just plain stupid. Now your putting the comments on the side. Why?? What’s wrong with it being where it was before? All this is doing is making it harder to use the app. Not just from enjoyment, but literally. It makes it hide certain features such as the recommended video for the video your watching. And now you can’t see the original comment as well as the replies at the same time. Just really a incredibly stupid idea. I’ve been using this app for as long as I can remember and have loved it. I’ve embraced the changes I’ve disliked including removing the dislike feature, and have been find with it. But this? This is too far. Please please change this. It’s not helping anyone at all. Cheers! -an old fan
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!
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.
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.
Are they actually fixing bugs as they claim?
by Anime Favorite on 2022/05/18 05:05
What bugs are you actually fixing Google? For the last several updates there has been a bug that has obscured the like button, the dislike button, the save to playlist button, the share button, and the clip button. And now when I go and try to look at the comment section, tapping on the comment section takes me on to the channel. Like when you’re watching a video and you tap the channel button to see the rest of the videos on that channel, that’s where it has recently started taking me if I tap the comments button or the add a comment button. That’s super annoying on top of dealing with the fact that I can’t like a video whenever I want. Fast forward to now is the most recent update. Still haven’t changed. It’s totally random. It will let me see those buttons on some videos, but not others. U2 better fix this soon. I hope it’s not a problem that only applies with voiceover, because Google how to be prepared for someone to take them to court for violating the Americans With Disabilities Act if they don’t fix it soon.
UTube rating
by Delaware D's on 2022/02/11 12:37
My number 1 amount of viewing. Great series especially British. Do wish they stayed current and put in Series 1- ?? And programs. Call the midwife has been on for yrs in Britain. We don’t have all. Also Dr Martin, same with midsummer murders. So wish bodyguard went on . Love to watch the Royal family, I’m a transplanted Canadian, with a very British Mom. Love the music and video of concerts. I find Gary Barlow concerts and Take That really zippy and upbeat. Loved Boyzone, westlife. I could go on and on. The life with malamutes, Shepa, Penny the cat are a doze of fun. Shepa shows the beautiful British countryside. Oh my, escape to the country, is stunning. What great adverts for Britain. Enough, PS , I’m 74 and housebound much of the time. I found all music because 3 yrs ago Christmas my son suggested I watch/ listen to Last Christmas video. It brought back such good memories of Christmas in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. From there other British music and Michael McIntre such fun, Miranda. Oh my I’m rattling. Thank you U Tube Delaware D’s
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.
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!
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.
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 !
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.
Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPads
by Fantaapp on 2022/03/02 03:33
I use YT app everyday. I noticed that the pic-in-pic feature is always on and off. I has been stable in the past several weeks, but then after the most recent update, it disappeared again…very disappointing… Also, I’m not very impressed with the new location of comments on the iPad version. Originally, you could easily skim through comments on the left side of bottom while skim through recommended videos on the right side. With the new location, you will need to click unnecessary extra times to open the comments and then close it before you can get back to the recommended videos. Given the typical screen size of iPads, the whole left side of bottom has been wasted (and users end up wasting time clicking more times…). I could see why the comments moved on iPhones (because of smaller screens), but I find that such a same “adaption” on iPad is a total useless deadweight loss. I would rather stay with the old version…
I come for the creators.
by Le ZomGod on 2022/02/03 23:15
At this point, the only reason I am here is due to the content creators. The absolute atrocity that has become this medium of entertainment is beyond appalling. The sheer quantity of ads, upon ads, upon unskippable ads has left me to the point where I am WILLINGLY taking longer than five seconds to avoid any unskippable ad. I will close the app, stop the video, go back through my watched history, report them, I no longer care. Your insufferable need for money is disgusting. If one of the world's most wealthy monopolies can’t bring for better service after buying out this site, then you all have failed as people of the world. Your greed, evidentially, knows no bounds and proves that there is no low you won't go. Including removing dislike counters to cater to a few individuals that should not have any bearing on the overall usage of this, but the mass's outcry towards the increasing number of advertisements goes unheard. Or, it’s heard and disregarded. Regardless of what the answer is, you have failed. If a new source can bring all of my creators to one place in a more streamlined fashion, I will gladly delete my account from this site and never return.
Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalized
by 40volume on 2021/12/13 09:16
Suggested songs can be irrelevant to insulting to the songs I chose to listen to. The next-up song generated are often the same song I’m already listening to but by a different uploader. The next-up songs are often not the same genre or mood, but more just the same time period but chart toppers. When I scroll to see auto play suggestions, auto play stops, so no music plays until I scroll back up. When I download songs, they can be deleted by the uploader and I won’t even know which song it was. And the most annoying - when I see a song that is “next up” in autoplay, and I click “not interested “ for that song, I’m notified it won’t show up anymore, it disappears, and then autoplay plays that song right after. Also, if I search a song I’ve searched before, the search still puts songs by the same name first (often contemporary songs by more contemporary artists), but the song I’ve actually clicked on and played, further down the list.
Removing Dislikes Was a Mistake
by B-Rush12 on 2022/01/13 03:34
Let me just say that this is my favorite media platform, and the only social media app (or maybe more accurately, social media adjacent) that I still have on my phone aside from Twitch, Discord, Snapchat, and FB Messenger…and that’s it. And I say this because I want the app to be the best that it can possibly be, and being the best implies that the app has integrity. In my opinion, removing the ability to see the number of dislikes on a video is harmful and a major blow to this platform’s integrity. The like-to-dislike ratio was so often used as a quick eye test and a tool to judge a content creator’s credibility and the amount of effort and value that went into the production of any particular video. Removing this feature takes away the viewer’s ability to relay to future viewers whether or not that the content in the video, or the creator who made the video, was valuable/credible enough to consider watching their content. I hope this gets reverted in the near future.
Some problems
by Technoblade 2.0 on 2021/06/23 16:34
First off, I love this app. It’s easy to use and a great time-killer; but there is some problems that are annoying. First off, I hate the fact that you get forced to sit through 20 second ads without skipping, every five minutes. And it’s always the same as for me, and I’ve heard that the creators did this on PURPOSE to literally force people to use the Premium edition. Second off, there isn’t a ad timer on my phone that is like “Ads is 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…” but instead the ad just comes out of nowhere. Lastly, there is a weird bug that it something like a PC isn’t updated or the app isn’t correctly updated, Restricted Mode is stuck on and I can’t turn it off saying it’s enforced by an “administrator” and I don’t have an administrator. I hate giving bad reviews, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Please fix these I love this app just there is a few things I don’t like.
Not a fan of auto play while scrolling
by Frizzlebratz on 2021/12/26 05:25
I’ve downgraded the app for the latest versions. 1) auto play “preview” isn’t just annoying, it puts videos in my history that I’m not interested in. I look at videos while doing other things. I frequently leave the app on when I have to shift focus to something important. I then have to clean the history or I’ll get fed more of these unwanted videos. Useless “feature”. Improve the app by providing a toggle to permanently shut this off or turn it back in. Alternatively, do not add these “previewed “ videos in history so the user doesn’t have a distorted recommendation list in the algorithm. 2) Ads should not exceed the length of the video selected. Some of the worst have had 45 minute ads on a ten minute video. Set a maximum ad length as a percentage of the overall video length. Obviously you’ll need a minimum ad length for monetizing short videos or don’t let them be monetized below a set length. Otherwise the app is fairly good. I’d upgrade my review for another feature as well: add search option for videos saved to playlists.
Broken
by DrakenTech on 2022/05/06 18:26
The recommendation system is absolute trash. Using the “not interested” option is useless after the last update. For whatever reason, all the video recommendations I’ve told it I’m not interested in and all the channels I’ve asked it not to show me are now back. Also, if I tell the app I don’t want a channel recommended to me; I don’t want it recommended to me out of spite on every single one of my other accounts! You know they’re mine because they’re all linked to the same account! I’ve never watched videos in Hindi, Arabic, Spanish, Urdu, Hebrew, Russian, Portuguese, or a hundred other languages; why are you recommending them to me!? I don’t watch sports videos, gender reveals, pop music videos, Minecraft videos, prank videos, drama, K-pop, or any of the other garbage trend videos; why are you recommending them!? I reach out to support and I get “your recommendations are based on your watch history”- NO IT’S NOT! Instead of taking a single iota of responsibility for the broken system, I get told it’s my fault. Then, even when I tell it I’m not interested, I get it and every video related to it recommended the next day! FIX YOUR SH*T, GOOGLE!!!!
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!
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.
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”?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
Censorship is annoying.
by Goobacca starshipp on 2021/12/12 11:01
I am no right wing neocon or Trump supporting populist by any stretch, but I certainly do get annoyed with all the censorship that seems to skew one way on this platform. Your censorship is applied terribly inconsistently - one video will be taken down while ten others running far more afoul of your rules will remain. I’ve begun to look at other platforms (like Odysee) even though, for familiarity’s sake, I’d prefer to just stick with this one. That said, your platform still contains more videos on a wider range of topics than your competitors do, but that won’t last if you keep this up. Protools used to be my DAW (digital audio workstation) of choice, but they allowed themselves to fall behind depending on their status as the “industry standard” to keep them relevant. The only reason people still use it is because that’s what a lot of pros started out on and are used to, but their status as the music industry’s standard is waning. I am actively annoyed that anybody still gives that DAW the time of day anymore.

Removed the dislike counter (now with bonus OLED burn in concern)
by Blustride on 2022/05/28 08:23
Youtube is bad about making pointless UI changes, but removing the dislike counter actually negatively affects the quality of the site. Update 28-05-2022: The gesture bar at the bottom of the screen for newer iPhones stays on the screen during video playback, even in fullscreen. After experiencing burn-in on every OLED screen I’ve owned in the past, I want fewer static elements on my screen, not more, plus it’s irritating to look at during a video. From what I can find this is enabled on a per-app basis by the developer, not systemwide, so please either disable the gesture bar during video playback or make it toggleable.

The app works great and all but sometimes I would like to have the Picture in Picture option cause it really comes in handy for day to day use I hope and wish it gets added some for iOS

YouTube shorts…
by Hailye bear on 2022/05/28 05:24
I love YouTube but there are a few things that need to be fixed…so first up what’s with the pre video ads?! I don’t mind ads but it’s really annoying when they’re the first thing you get when you click on a video. Second YouTube shorts is great and all but recently it’s been showing me all the same stuff. I get the same vids over and over and over again no matter how many times I refresh or log out and it’s quite annoying. There’s some other stuff but those are the major things I have to say.
Ads
by Music Junky185 on 2022/05/28 05:09
Why ads every 5 mins YouTube.
Very Good

The 15 second ads
by waffleboy711 on 2022/05/28 04:38
Come on sometimes you can’t skip them and yes this is going to be a very short review but this is my only question OK please fix it work to where you can skip 15 second ads and you cannot skip six second ads because sometimes you can skip six second ads and that’s how long it takes for the ad skip to warm up so yeah fix that please and that’s it
So many issues
by SwimmingDem0ns on 2022/05/28 04:24
There’s always a problem and staff that controls monetization needs a refresh. So many ads now days and I can’t replace my phones battery anymore. Unless YouTube is willing to pay for new battery’s for everyone’s phones, remove them. A lot are pointless and I’m tired having inappropriate ads shoved down my throat.
Exellent
by Summercarrel on 2022/05/28 04:16
This is so amazing because there is so much to watch not only one thing to watch there’s hundreds of things I probably haven’t seen on YouTube it’s so big that we have more to explore on YouTube to be creative and have fun watching and enjoying new stuff that we haven’t experienced
Vary uhhh strange creators and comment people
by Not_yo_momma on 2022/05/28 04:15
So you see there are very good small creators that can be amazing but I personally think that this app is helpful but strangely there is inappropriate stuff on here that YouTube just tried to delete but they keep coming up very inappropriate stuff and I’ll watch this when I was very young me being curious and I was just normally watching it very strangely questions in my head people in the comments are putting hearts saying oh my God Chamor I love the music I just think you should very be careful about what you search on here and if you want to search that kind of stuff your time is disgusting :unless you are a little kid: it is OK to be curious just don’t recommend AT ALL and if you’re freaking creepy old man just watching this comment seriously just get the apps online freaking weirdo! OR GET A GIRL OHHHHH!!!
Each update ruins the app
by дасукааамьбгчтд on 2022/05/28 03:47
After every update of YouTube i’m afraid to open the app, what they going to ruin next? Less options when sorting videos in channel? Millionth update of interface which looks worse than before, and has tons of Day 1 bugs like interface buttons stacking on themself, just stop it, don’t delete things from your app, rather consider ADDING some new features, that’ll be great.

Nothing but spam channels
by ㆍa personㆍ on 2022/05/28 02:27
Whenever I open YouTube I keep getting spam channels and I don’t use YouTube often but when I do I watch a lot of YouTube shorts because they are funny but when I opened them a few days ago I had nothing but spam channels in the YouTube shorts it’s pretty annoying I used to find some role play and some gaming and or a YouTuber that does a mix of almost everything but I opened YouTube back up today it was the exact same just spam channels everywhere I reported some because I just got annoyed but I’ll report any acc that is a spam now because it’s annoying anymore

Unnecessary changes
by sydneybruh on 2022/05/28 01:39
Y’all stay making unnecessary, non-user friendly changes to your app. Who just thinks, “hey let’s move where the ‘Watch Later’ tab usually is, that’ll show them we did something”? Come on guys, just choose a layout for your app and stick to it. I don’t make videos and I don’t buy or rent movies on YouTube. If you won’t leave the Watch Later alone, at least give me the option to move the “your videos” and “your movies/shows” tab from the ever-so-convenient spot where my thumb goes. I miss when YouTube was customizable and fun, now it’s been eaten by capitalism.

Yeah I get it… take your cut but do you really need to be that fiendishly and thievishly sleazy about it?
Obviously 5 star function, 3 star impartiality
by Angry and Afraid on 2022/05/27 20:24
YouTube, like the other biggest tech platforms, are not impartial to content and take every opportunity to demonetize and censor all but the most benign takes on current events. I encourage YouTubes developers (and whoever employs them) to re examine the first amendment of the US constitution and the philosophical principles and foresight that led them to begin the most successful experiment in human history.

by real buggy on 2022/05/27 17:52
1. (Partisanship) The removal of dislikes, literal censorship of comments that contain key words you don’t like (or from what i’ve seen from experience), and general favorship towards left-leaning youtubers jas lead to another social media platform becoming partisan and ruined. 2. (Bad Features) First of all, the red dot that shows a new video that someone uploaded is always there, even if a new video has not been uploaded. Second, Whenever I look uo something, it repeatedly shows stuff that have NOTHING to do with what I want to see. Thirdly, all sorts of minor bugs. You cant take a little bit of your time just pour a modicum of effort into cleaningup this mess? Absolutely pitiful.

Ads are killing this app
by Jimmy Hoffa on 2022/05/27 16:45
I love YouTube content, but the last 2 years have made the app unbearable. The amount of ads and the length of them is ridiculous! YouTube premium is too expensive and waiting 2 minutes for ads that aren’t relevant during a 10 minute video is a total waste of time. The results of surveys asking how annoying ads are clearly aren’t taken into account because I know everyone on here is thinking the same thing as me. At the very least, make ads skippable if they’re over 10 seconds long and I’ll happily change this review.

YouTube’s current state in my view
by öóòö on 2022/05/27 16:25
YouTube recently removed dislikes which censored the community on the platform bu not allowing people to expressly voice their opinion on a video Second is the current type of YouTubers that have arisen, they’re these YouTubers who will abuse and spam the same ‘short’ hundreds of times which completely destroys the algorithm that YouTube has set up, another thing is that what these YouTubers are doing goes completely against YouTube’s TOC which clearly states that YouTube doesn’t allow short spam, but yet barely any of these channels have been taken down. Often many of these are exploiting younger audience members for their scams. YouTube seriously needs better management and a more clear TOC as people who have 100 or less subscribers are targeted and those repost YouTubers are left clean. Get it together YouTube 👍👍👎👎👎
Same issues never resolved
by hayes dennus on 2022/05/27 16:12
It has been an ongoing issue that I cannot remove my account from devices I do not have access to. For instance, I forgot to log out of my account in an Airbnb and now my account is being used without my permission and I have no way to log out as I am in a different state. I realize I should’ve remembered to log out, but you would think youtube would have the ability to remove your account from devices, like you can on many other apps. I had to just delete my account and am going to probably not even return
Excellent and valuable.
by Wired1948 on 2022/05/05 16:59
Yes, I, as does everyone, have specific interests. Fortunately, I evaluate carefully what I watch in order to not to be swayed to one or another point of view. When watching I ask myself if the veracity of what is shown can be tested. If what is said is ‘circular’ or self-reinforcing, I suspect that there is an underlying deception going on that relies on a viewer’s willingness to accept untestable self-reinforcing statements as being the Truth. Self-reinforcing statements are circular, relying on an internal mis-use of language to defend itself from being tested from the outside. Lies, euphemistically called misinformation, can be fact checked from other sources, but self-reinforcing circular statements and opinions are fallacious and deceptive in their very structure by returning to proposals and statements as ‘conclusions’ that ‘prove’ the ‘truth’ of what is being said. We believe them because we cannot escape their internal ‘logic’—they cannot be tested or disproven. That doesn’t make them true; it only means that they cannot be tested objectively. Self-reinforcing statements and beliefs are very comforting because their internal ‘logic’ eliminates questioning, once one has allowed oneself to be hooked.
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.
Bring Back Downvotes
by hgighjb on 2022/05/12 04:30
Please stop the censorship. Let people communicate freely and decide for themselves what they think and feel. The internet has already become censored enough by the removal of comment sections and through rampant consolidation/mergers into monopolies or near-monopolies. Trying to direct comments into Twitter or Facebook forces people to join those sites which have become clearing houses for sale of people’s private information to companies and to massive profiling by the government. Both should be illegal. These aren’t the principals that America is supposed to be about and it will ultimately be bad even for the businesses that behave this way. Look at what’s happened to Facebook. Same thing goes for the music industry and traditional radio stations. Competition leads to innovation and improvement. Freedom of expression is essential to to our way of life, and censorship does not prevent people from understanding the truth. It just leads people to reject your business and destroys consumer confidence. People know that censorship of this type isn’t for the public’s benefit or for small content creators - it’s to protect powerful figures and special interests and to make the general public feel alone when they disagree with a message, or when they’re being lied to. Please do the right thing, it will work for everyone’s benefit. Thank you.

Well explained I’ve been using all the topaz labs softwares but then I came across photo lab 5 and downloaded the free trial and I was blown away by all it’s features and the fact sorry I know it’s a video about comparing the Denoise from topaz and Deep Prime from photo lab 5 we can ignore the fact that with photo lab 5 you get noise reduction,you have features that do the same thing that the sharpen AI does as well all in one software only thing that you don’t have on photo lab 5 is gigapixel AI but it’s a tool that is not very often used so whatever I’m really thinking about getting DXO Lab 5 Pro and add to my collection of softwares I think that if you have the cash to spend and it’s very serious about photography you should have both,these are not toys are instruments of work that you can make that money back from your work,just make sure that you grab your camera at all times with you and keep shooting it’s when you less expecting that you can get some of the great pictures
Too many ads and too long
by Kokoemo on 2022/04/29 15:49
I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.
Comment section is screwy
by djafkldjalfkjdaklfjldkajfldas on 2022/02/26 20:09
Please, I am begging you, please put the comments back where they were, open at the bottom and not above the related videos in their own separate tab with one random comment showing. The description, too. Both of those things being in their own tab is annoying. The X button looking the same and having a different function now - changing to closing the whole comment section instead of a reply thread - makes no sense. At the very least, having the comment closing button on the right when most people are right handed and you're more likely to want to close replies instead of the whole entire comment window (whyy) is weird. I used to watch YT constantly while working/doing hobbies and I love reading comments and used to watch some videos multiple times while reading through them but I hate it and don't touch the app at all now unless I'm on my PC. I don't even need YT Red anymore I use it so little. I do miss watching stuff, though. I've always dreaded updating YT because every once in a while the comment section changes to this awful format for a bit for some reason. Really, any other issue I'd have with the app is overshadowed by this. (This was wasn't a wall of text but submitting it killed my formatting, sorry.)
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!
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.
Concerned about censorship and other issues.

Why demonetize and/or limit profit on content that isn’t child friendly when there’s a whole other app for that? Why demonetize and age restrict content creators for one explicative in their videos when multiple music videos showcase soft core nudity and are notably more explicit while having none of those restrictions? Why put multiple ads in the MIDDLE of videos when there’s up to 3 at both the beginning and end of a video? Not only are you wasting more bandwidth and space for yourself, you’re actively discouraging people to support your app. On top of that, why the 15 second unskippable advertisements? Why not just leave the unskippable ads at the 5 second length? And why double them? Not only that, you put ads on videos that are SHORTER than said advertisement. It’s even further discouraging your support and makes you seem more unappealing and unappreciative of your popularity while decreasing your utility. This is why you’re being more a disappointment than parents of a delinquent child, and like a delinquent child you’re putting minimal effort, if any at all, to remedy your issues.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing app! But new update ruined it.
by Big problem with game on 2021/12/14 23:46
And no, this is no because of the dislike feature being removed, though I do find that a really dumb idea overall. This is about how you KEEP PUTTING THINGS ON THE SIDE. First it was with descriptions, which I did find annoying, but not the end of the world. This however, is just plain stupid. Now your putting the comments on the side. Why?? What’s wrong with it being where it was before? All this is doing is making it harder to use the app. Not just from enjoyment, but literally. It makes it hide certain features such as the recommended video for the video your watching. And now you can’t see the original comment as well as the replies at the same time. Just really a incredibly stupid idea. I’ve been using this app for as long as I can remember and have loved it. I’ve embraced the changes I’ve disliked including removing the dislike feature, and have been find with it. But this? This is too far. Please please change this. It’s not helping anyone at all. Cheers! -an old fan
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!
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.
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.
Are they actually fixing bugs as they claim?
by Anime Favorite on 2022/05/18 05:05
What bugs are you actually fixing Google? For the last several updates there has been a bug that has obscured the like button, the dislike button, the save to playlist button, the share button, and the clip button. And now when I go and try to look at the comment section, tapping on the comment section takes me on to the channel. Like when you’re watching a video and you tap the channel button to see the rest of the videos on that channel, that’s where it has recently started taking me if I tap the comments button or the add a comment button. That’s super annoying on top of dealing with the fact that I can’t like a video whenever I want. Fast forward to now is the most recent update. Still haven’t changed. It’s totally random. It will let me see those buttons on some videos, but not others. U2 better fix this soon. I hope it’s not a problem that only applies with voiceover, because Google how to be prepared for someone to take them to court for violating the Americans With Disabilities Act if they don’t fix it soon.
UTube rating
by Delaware D's on 2022/02/11 12:37
My number 1 amount of viewing. Great series especially British. Do wish they stayed current and put in Series 1- ?? And programs. Call the midwife has been on for yrs in Britain. We don’t have all. Also Dr Martin, same with midsummer murders. So wish bodyguard went on . Love to watch the Royal family, I’m a transplanted Canadian, with a very British Mom. Love the music and video of concerts. I find Gary Barlow concerts and Take That really zippy and upbeat. Loved Boyzone, westlife. I could go on and on. The life with malamutes, Shepa, Penny the cat are a doze of fun. Shepa shows the beautiful British countryside. Oh my, escape to the country, is stunning. What great adverts for Britain. Enough, PS , I’m 74 and housebound much of the time. I found all music because 3 yrs ago Christmas my son suggested I watch/ listen to Last Christmas video. It brought back such good memories of Christmas in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. From there other British music and Michael McIntre such fun, Miranda. Oh my I’m rattling. Thank you U Tube Delaware D’s
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.
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!
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.
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 !
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.
Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPads
by Fantaapp on 2022/03/02 03:33
I use YT app everyday. I noticed that the pic-in-pic feature is always on and off. I has been stable in the past several weeks, but then after the most recent update, it disappeared again…very disappointing… Also, I’m not very impressed with the new location of comments on the iPad version. Originally, you could easily skim through comments on the left side of bottom while skim through recommended videos on the right side. With the new location, you will need to click unnecessary extra times to open the comments and then close it before you can get back to the recommended videos. Given the typical screen size of iPads, the whole left side of bottom has been wasted (and users end up wasting time clicking more times…). I could see why the comments moved on iPhones (because of smaller screens), but I find that such a same “adaption” on iPad is a total useless deadweight loss. I would rather stay with the old version…
I come for the creators.
by Le ZomGod on 2022/02/03 23:15
At this point, the only reason I am here is due to the content creators. The absolute atrocity that has become this medium of entertainment is beyond appalling. The sheer quantity of ads, upon ads, upon unskippable ads has left me to the point where I am WILLINGLY taking longer than five seconds to avoid any unskippable ad. I will close the app, stop the video, go back through my watched history, report them, I no longer care. Your insufferable need for money is disgusting. If one of the world's most wealthy monopolies can’t bring for better service after buying out this site, then you all have failed as people of the world. Your greed, evidentially, knows no bounds and proves that there is no low you won't go. Including removing dislike counters to cater to a few individuals that should not have any bearing on the overall usage of this, but the mass's outcry towards the increasing number of advertisements goes unheard. Or, it’s heard and disregarded. Regardless of what the answer is, you have failed. If a new source can bring all of my creators to one place in a more streamlined fashion, I will gladly delete my account from this site and never return.
Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalized
by 40volume on 2021/12/13 09:16
Suggested songs can be irrelevant to insulting to the songs I chose to listen to. The next-up song generated are often the same song I’m already listening to but by a different uploader. The next-up songs are often not the same genre or mood, but more just the same time period but chart toppers. When I scroll to see auto play suggestions, auto play stops, so no music plays until I scroll back up. When I download songs, they can be deleted by the uploader and I won’t even know which song it was. And the most annoying - when I see a song that is “next up” in autoplay, and I click “not interested “ for that song, I’m notified it won’t show up anymore, it disappears, and then autoplay plays that song right after. Also, if I search a song I’ve searched before, the search still puts songs by the same name first (often contemporary songs by more contemporary artists), but the song I’ve actually clicked on and played, further down the list.
Removing Dislikes Was a Mistake
by B-Rush12 on 2022/01/13 03:34
Let me just say that this is my favorite media platform, and the only social media app (or maybe more accurately, social media adjacent) that I still have on my phone aside from Twitch, Discord, Snapchat, and FB Messenger…and that’s it. And I say this because I want the app to be the best that it can possibly be, and being the best implies that the app has integrity. In my opinion, removing the ability to see the number of dislikes on a video is harmful and a major blow to this platform’s integrity. The like-to-dislike ratio was so often used as a quick eye test and a tool to judge a content creator’s credibility and the amount of effort and value that went into the production of any particular video. Removing this feature takes away the viewer’s ability to relay to future viewers whether or not that the content in the video, or the creator who made the video, was valuable/credible enough to consider watching their content. I hope this gets reverted in the near future.
Some problems
by Technoblade 2.0 on 2021/06/23 16:34
First off, I love this app. It’s easy to use and a great time-killer; but there is some problems that are annoying. First off, I hate the fact that you get forced to sit through 20 second ads without skipping, every five minutes. And it’s always the same as for me, and I’ve heard that the creators did this on PURPOSE to literally force people to use the Premium edition. Second off, there isn’t a ad timer on my phone that is like “Ads is 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…” but instead the ad just comes out of nowhere. Lastly, there is a weird bug that it something like a PC isn’t updated or the app isn’t correctly updated, Restricted Mode is stuck on and I can’t turn it off saying it’s enforced by an “administrator” and I don’t have an administrator. I hate giving bad reviews, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Please fix these I love this app just there is a few things I don’t like.
Not a fan of auto play while scrolling
by Frizzlebratz on 2021/12/26 05:25
I’ve downgraded the app for the latest versions. 1) auto play “preview” isn’t just annoying, it puts videos in my history that I’m not interested in. I look at videos while doing other things. I frequently leave the app on when I have to shift focus to something important. I then have to clean the history or I’ll get fed more of these unwanted videos. Useless “feature”. Improve the app by providing a toggle to permanently shut this off or turn it back in. Alternatively, do not add these “previewed “ videos in history so the user doesn’t have a distorted recommendation list in the algorithm. 2) Ads should not exceed the length of the video selected. Some of the worst have had 45 minute ads on a ten minute video. Set a maximum ad length as a percentage of the overall video length. Obviously you’ll need a minimum ad length for monetizing short videos or don’t let them be monetized below a set length. Otherwise the app is fairly good. I’d upgrade my review for another feature as well: add search option for videos saved to playlists.
Broken
by DrakenTech on 2022/05/06 18:26
The recommendation system is absolute trash. Using the “not interested” option is useless after the last update. For whatever reason, all the video recommendations I’ve told it I’m not interested in and all the channels I’ve asked it not to show me are now back. Also, if I tell the app I don’t want a channel recommended to me; I don’t want it recommended to me out of spite on every single one of my other accounts! You know they’re mine because they’re all linked to the same account! I’ve never watched videos in Hindi, Arabic, Spanish, Urdu, Hebrew, Russian, Portuguese, or a hundred other languages; why are you recommending them to me!? I don’t watch sports videos, gender reveals, pop music videos, Minecraft videos, prank videos, drama, K-pop, or any of the other garbage trend videos; why are you recommending them!? I reach out to support and I get “your recommendations are based on your watch history”- NO IT’S NOT! Instead of taking a single iota of responsibility for the broken system, I get told it’s my fault. Then, even when I tell it I’m not interested, I get it and every video related to it recommended the next day! FIX YOUR SH*T, GOOGLE!!!!
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!
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.
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”?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
Censorship is annoying.
by Goobacca starshipp on 2021/12/12 11:01
I am no right wing neocon or Trump supporting populist by any stretch, but I certainly do get annoyed with all the censorship that seems to skew one way on this platform. Your censorship is applied terribly inconsistently - one video will be taken down while ten others running far more afoul of your rules will remain. I’ve begun to look at other platforms (like Odysee) even though, for familiarity’s sake, I’d prefer to just stick with this one. That said, your platform still contains more videos on a wider range of topics than your competitors do, but that won’t last if you keep this up. Protools used to be my DAW (digital audio workstation) of choice, but they allowed themselves to fall behind depending on their status as the “industry standard” to keep them relevant. The only reason people still use it is because that’s what a lot of pros started out on and are used to, but their status as the music industry’s standard is waning. I am actively annoyed that anybody still gives that DAW the time of day anymore.
