You tube
I have enjoyed You Tube very much through the years I just wish they would lower the monthly rate , so that we can enjoy it better and easier without all the interrupting commercials .. I would like to get it again as I have the app on my TV , and phone , but the commercials are so very annoying when your trying to watch music , or checking out trailers for new movies or to watch other inspirational videos , ECT… As a woman on a fixed income and I’m sure with the economy the way everything is 10 times more expensive for all people , it would be nice if it’s just for a single person option to a family option , the rates should be lower . XM radio I pay for is 8.99 $ a month and I get in my car , home , phone , on everything I own and can share without a bigger fee. Just my thoughts , but again you tube is very good and I would watch or listen more of it came more affordable .. Sincerely MOM of 4 - From Massachusetts 🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼

This app is beginning to bug me.
First my review is removed. Now I gotta complain some more. Can you please fix the issue with this app refreshing in the background and a close the app while I’m listening to videos with the screen off. Every time I have to pause, then come back to hit play, I find it won’t play because the app has closed. Now I have to go back and find the video in history and also find where I left off at because it won’t play exactly from where I was at. I use this app daily for hours and hours on end while I’m at work, and it shouldn’t be like this. As a matter a fact it hasn’t been like this; this is something new that’s occurring. I pay for ad-free and to be able to play videos with the screen off, and this isn’t cool. Now, with the issues I’m having, now I see you’re increasing the month fee for premium from $15 to almost $20 (it’s 18, but it might as well be $20). Issue remain.😡🤬🤯 I use this app for about 10-15 hours a day. This is just egregious. I can’t even pause the video for even one minute without coming back to find that the app has closed again and again and again and again and again. This is the worse this app has ever been. Why am I paying you almost $20 per month for premium features when this app is misbehaving as bad as it is!? Sheesh!

Content and censorship
I like the diverse content available but abhor the censorship. Please don’t devalue the intelligence of your viewers. You can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. The respect for Diversity in this nation was once taught and respected. It is what has made this country great. That’s diversity of thought, the way we do things, approach problems, social norms, and perspectives, etc. We used to not force our will on others simply because we had the votes or power to do so because it is unethical. At the end of the day it should be “reason” that wins out because we have all had a chance to examine and discuss all aspects of why we agree or disagree. Then voluntarily adopt it and not be mandated by law or policy to. ALL voices have an unalienable right to be heard and a right to be rejected or accepted once completely heard. All voices have the moral responsibility to respectfully convey their position. The truth always comes out. Suppression of the truth or only allowing one narrative is like damming up a river—eventually the water will break that dam and flow freely in the messiest way possible. It will only come back to bite you later.. Encourage respect not sanctioned narratives.

Update Concerns
I am of the belief that a review should be about what is being done right and/or what is being done wrong. Simply saying you hate a thing is not helpful. This app has a lot that it gets right, from the variety of content to the searches actually doing their best to return what you’re looking for. I have found channels that I now follow thanks to the “if you liked that, try this” function. Hence the 3 stars… but I will admit that the “algorithm” has been a bit unkind to some of the channels I follow. Blocking content for arbitrary reasons, being slow or downright unresponsive in the customer service department, and changing its own rules on what is and isn’t allowed at the drop of a hat. Now maybe YT’s rules are changing internally, but there needs to be consistency in them, and from what I’ve seen there isn’t. Also, as I am a bit of an Odd Duck, I prefer to keep my watch history neat. If I accidentally click something, or don’t want the algorithm to start recommending things based on a passing interest, I delete this from my watch history. Since the update, this has become… difficult. If you’re going to update something… try not to break something else while you do it.

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.

the new update
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.

Fine, but one detail..
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.

Yt reviews
While yt is always awesome, the one thing and it’s huge, is the bot comments that are ridiculously and overwhelmingly to a degree of YUK, all about positivity and wanting no one to be subjected to honest criticism and sarcasm. Ur creating a world of people that can’t handle basic life and the type of people that crumble when faced with anything negative. I understand not saying things horrible and offensive, but denying humans of being told truths is the quickest way to arrested development and Idiocracy. Please raise the ceiling on what is and what isn’t a strikable offense or one that gets a warning. There way too many people that need to hear the truth) and sometimes brutal) but the truth nonetheless. I know it’s a tough job, but it would be like feeding a child, but never showing them how and or where to get the food. You are doing a disservice to ur fellow human beings by sheltering them. A world full of thin skinned people is a world that will crumble. Unless that’s what ur going for, if so, then carry on, ur right on point… Thank you so much for all that you do Hopefully this was helpful…

Good app but advertisement overload
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.

Amazing app! But new update ruined it.
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

So many things bad
Why do you censor everything, literally everyone hates it, stop changing thing that don’t need to be changed (like whyyyy tf would you only allow one visible video per entire iPad screen in the recommended videos area before you click on anything. Half the time you can’t see the title at first glance because of an ad at the top, and omggggg, stop messing with the comment section. Why do you not allow people to dislike comments, the children’s videos are sometimes not even children’s videos (I’m not talking about the type of content but I mean your own company’s labeling of videos due to COPPA. Like some music videos will be labeled for kids and so I can’t even watch them in mini player, tell me how does that protect kids? My biggest problem is that you fix things that don’t need fixing and leave out/ ignore EVERYTHING that does. It seems like every year there’s more issues, I would gladly use another app if it came along, this app is riddled with easily fixable problems

We need wayyy less censorship
I love this app because it's a place that you can find pretty much anything and see how cool people are. But even awesome things have serious problems. I feel like the more people who protest these things the more likely we'll be heard. Honestly this might not even be true which shows how sad our culture is rn but we need to try. Ok, venting time. Like the other reviews I think it's unfair to take down a video because it makes you uncomfortable. And as another of the reviews said we are already trying to make our country more diverse, more open to opinions. But disregarding one because you don't like it means you aren't being fair. It means you're saying we don't matter. Your consumers don't matter. We have freedom of speech for a reason. We have a right to say what we want. In certain circumstances I think censorship is needed but only when it would actually hurt someone and you don't need to take the video down. You could just tag it saying "hey this video is probably not great for children". Yk? I just think it's being selfish and unfair to refuse to let someone share their opinions when it's a human right.

Very difficult to find contact
This application is organized in someway that I have yet to figure out. I go to look for shows like 90 day fiancé pillow talk and instead of them being within the season they are under a separate category called something else and there’s no episode number so I have to go back and look at the name of the episode I just watched go back to the other show information and then scroll through about eight different seasons of pillow talk until I can find the show I’m looking for. Sometimes they show commercials even though you’ve recorded the show what should I supposed to do and so if you go to watch five episodes or something it’s literally the same commercials over and over and over and over again. There’s no way to fast forward even though you’ve already seen these commercials at least 15 times. As a sidenote I would never ever go and purchase from one of these commercial companies that I’ve had to sit there and watch the commercial 100 times. Also the iPad app is significantly different than the TV app the TV app freezes it Hass to be restarted at least once a day

I hate the ads
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!

Utube traders to America
When you think only one side of a story should be heard and you use your power to silence them you are as bad as Hitler or the Chinese who put people in jail or even kill them because they don’t agree with your views. Let’s try something. Let’s say all the conservatives in this country are gone we all left and went to another country. That would be great right? You will have yourUtopia and everybody will get along right. What if someone complains your taking too much money from my paycheck well you can just kill them. That will teach everyone not to complain and no one will. The truth is the rich will be happy they will be in control of everyone’s lives the poor and middle class will be slaves for the rich but don’t complain or you will be killed. All our rights will be gone. Utube owners are cowards because they are afraid of other views so they use their power to take away our first amendment rights. Someday Utube will be on the other side when government sensors them.

Alright, but flawed in fundamental ways
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.

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.

Love it
It’s such a great resource for learning things. I love it! Some feedback: when the app decides to grab tracking data, it drops my video, which means I have to hunt for it again, and restart it. When I study a topic related to consumerism, I click links to investigate definitions, or products, or other use cases… there’s lots of reasons for surfing alongside viewing videos. Then I continue watching until I want to investigate another thing related to the video I’m viewing. It should be noted that collecting my data and so deleting my video are annoying actions for the app to have. Tracking shouldn’t disrupt my place in a video, nor should background updates. Not even if your app isn’t on top of whatever I am currently looking at. I subscribe to streaming services which will hold my place on a video for days, so I am clear that deleting what I’m watching so the app can grab marketing data or update itself isn’t acceptable for an app this mature.

Pretty great! Few suggestions
I’m amazed over how the last few updates have been what the community likes. Of course, there are a few things that I would like however. Definitely removing dislikes is something the community says. (My review might be discorded automatically since I said that) If this hurts the small creators, you can add a feature where dislikes can be toggled to be seen by the creator, but the community can see the dislikes no matter what. That would solve the problem of small creators being protected. What thing I would like personally is mature rating. Somewhat similar to most streaming entertainment service companies such as Nexflix, a maturity rating could be nice. However, DONT restrict shows at certain ratings. Just tells the viewer what would they expect. Finally, I feel like channels with a lot of subscribers (amount at your discretion) should have more freedom to move around. For example, higher viewed channel can get more copyright strikes(p.s this might save automatic unreasonable copyright strikes from getting channels terminated.) If small channels get protected, why can’t the big ones too? They have been trusted to build a fan base over the years. Finally, this might not happen, but maybe we could choose what type of ads we want to watch. Maybe I enjoy game ads. Maybe I enjoy Morgan and Morgan ads. We should choose what ads we like. Thanks for all the great new updates!

Not user-friendly
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.

I listen to the rain videos all night to sleep with and have subscribed to at least 100 sites.
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.

Are they actually fixing bugs as they claim?
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.

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

The End
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!

UI was better before and now as of 2022 the ads literally make things nearly unwatchable
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”?

Problems and enjoy the app
I do enjoy going on here to watch videos from some of my idols or just random things. However it is nice to not have an account signed in so it can keep track of my watched videos while adding some similar to it. I am a bit frustrated and angry with this app by allowing people to post shorts. Yes I understand that people want to showcase some little mini clips sort of like TikTok and Instagram feels. However they are annoying and gross on my app. I do not want to see people popping random things from blisters to warts to whatever else. It clearly makes me want to vomit or not watch another video. Could you please prevent people from doing that or allow an option for non-account people to permanently disabled the shorts on their feed. I hate seeing them when they were never on my feed before and I keep trying to get rid of them but you won’t give me option too besides report.

Opens up an encyclopedia of vision learning !
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 !

Channel list..
For the past week i have been trying to get help with my list of channels that i am subscribed to. I stream through a roku device to my tv plus i have the you tube app on my iphone. On my iphone the whole list is there, from A to Z and everything in between, but on my tv anything after P is missing, when i look at the channel list on my phone, there is a line after the last one that shows on my TV. Almost like it is showing me on my phone where the list ends on my tv if that makes any sense. Anyway the ones that call themselves helping me with this issue haven’t helped at all, and are very short and hateful with me, after speaking with 3 people with attitudes i got kind of frustrated and decided to leave it alone, but the channels i mainly watch are the ones that are missing from my dang list. They said something like i have changed my settings or something and i have never touched the settings. I have updated on my TV and my phone and still have the same problem, anyone else having this issue?

Amazing App
Used it for over a decade, great performance, customizability, and over all a great video sharing app. Everything is simple to use, their recommendation algorithm is accurate, and can bring immense nostalgia in some places. You can discover new music, hobbies, video games, etc. that you never would have even tried doing. Watch people do crazy things you never imagined were possible. Very produced (unlike TikTok, no offense). And you can easily find your group of people/community that watch and like the same things as you. Crazy good app, 100% will recommend to anybody. Literally my only 1 problem with it is that you can’t see the amount of dislikes. Say there is a tutorial video on how to do something, and if you can’t see the ratio from likes to dislikes you don’t know if it actually works in advance. But putting that minor inconvenience aside, crazy good app and I plan to use it for as long as it still exists.

You Tube is Really Great
I have watched how to diagnose what is wrong with your washing machine and fix it yourself and save money. Need an oil change on you car what ever you drive someone on you tube will show you how to do you car. I installed new flooring like tile in my kitchen laminate flooring in the rest of our home , new kitchen cabinets. I garden guess where I go to learn what I need to know. That’s right You Tube! Think of most any song within reason and you can most likely find it on (yelp you guessed it) You Tube. I missed my FL Gators ball game I can watch a rerun on You Tube. You felling a little down and need a laugh to pick you up? Well You Tube to the rescue. You Tube is nice enough to let you have your own videos posted on your own You Tube Station. Well believe me I could talk a long time about You Tube but you get the idea “You Tube is really Great.” You Tube Thank You. ( Oh I fixed my computer more than once using You Tube)

Please take pic-in-pic feature back! The new location of comments does not make sense on iPads
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.
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.

Great app!!! Read this for honest reviews!
I have been a YouTuber for 8 months now. The copyright thing is pretty annoying tho. I have had a channel for like I said, 8 months. However, I have been watching yt for over 2 years. Ads are getting ridiculous and wayyyy too long. Also, you should be able to have the community tab under 500 subs! I have 250 and I rlly want the community tab!!!!! I just updated yt and I’m hoping that the bugs will be fixed. There have been bugs and issues with both uploading videos and watching videos. I’m hoping that this update will help. Also, 17+?!?!?!? There are 7 year olds on here! It should be at least 9+!!!! Other than that, it’s an amazing app and is one of the most popular social media apps out there! Btw I liked the update of not being able to see the dislike button. It honestly makes ppl feel a lot better about the videos :) 4 starts! Thx for everything!I hope u take the time to read this! Thx for an amazing app! ✌️🤪❤️

Premium Customer - Not for much longer - Bias Censorship
YT is among the big tech that has been known to censor free speech for a long time;however, the algorithm changes and biased decisions on what can/cannot be said ultimately may lead me to no longer being a premium member or casual viewer. It’s so excessive lately. I’m constantly hitting “do not recommend this channel” and deleting content that is sexual in nature that gets recommended over time. This is disgusting because I know this is happening to kids. I don’t believe YT is looking out for safety with these things in mind. YT has no problem keeping up content that is hateful to people of certain color or woman in general, this is wrong. Look at the bud light controversy. Customers understand the impact of putting their money where their mouth is and I hope the YT overlords note the lesson’s learned from this or they will find themselves in the same position and become obsolete. Twitter is on its way to becoming the everything app where streaming can be done without the headache of navigating the inconsistent and ambiguous “guidelines” YT applies to only certain groups of people.

Bad next-up/auto play suggestions, not personalized
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.

Watch Later
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.

Removing Dislikes Was a Mistake
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.

Lots of problems but I still like it
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

Awful, unnecessary changes
They’ve hit the point where there’s no real way to improve the app. So instead of simply making it easier to use they are now adding completely useless features that make it harder to use. Want to go to to a certain point in a video? Too bad if it’s 3 or less minutes away from a time stamp because they won’t let you select it. Want to watch a video by clicking it once? To bad, instead you can tap it once and have it play without sound in the thumbnail, then tap it again to have it pause itself then tap it again to actually start the video. Want to watch a video in full screen? Too bad if you get an add that is full screen when vertical because you’ll have to restart the app to get it function properly. Want to pause the video? Too bad because it’ll take 3-4 tries before the app realizes you’d like to bring up the pause button and not skip forward 10 seconds. Again, entirely useless features no one asked for are making this app just a little bit more annoying to everyone I open it up.

Community Tabs
Overall, this is a great app and I use it a lot instead of the online website. But the thing is, as a mobile user, when I go to a specific channel and try to see their old community posts [only if I have missed a few days of their content and want to see what they’ve been posting. And if you’re gonna think “just scroll down in the subscriptions tab”, no. I have over a hundred subscriptions with some of them posting every minute; I’m not gonna scroll down that far] it doesn’t let me and says that it isn’t available for mobile or something like that. But I can perfectly see the community tabs in the subscriptions tab? But it still doesn’t work since when I try to open up the comment section area or try to click on the message to see the entire thing, it still says the same thing about it ‘not working’, etc. I’m unable to see full community posts because of this, please fix it.

Use this everyday and love it but…
I love this app. I have a channel with a couple subs, videos and everything. I use it everyday. I have a suggestion though. It is that mindplayer is kept on even for videos set for kids. Many videos are set for kids and not only enjoyed by kids. It gets really annoying when I’m watching a video set for kids, I go to my recommended and it isn’t playing. Please change this. I also a bug I would love fixed. I also use YT shorts daily. Some of the shorts decide not to load sometimes. I have to scroll up to the previous one and go back for it to work, it’s really annoying. Sometimes it also just doesn’t load at all and I have to skip watching it. (It’s not my Wi-Fi that’s causing this problem). One more suggestion I have is pls add 1.10 playback speed. Please take my suggestions into consideration. Thanks, Adi, a person who loves YT and uses it daily.

YT has NOT improved with age
Love the concept & the content; HATE the platform! As YT has gotten more popular, it has gotten SO much worse! First, ads are out of control! As another said, I understand that a company must make money, but seriously? Ads are forced upon creators even when they do not wish to monetize & the amount of ads are ridiculous! We, the viewers, are bombarded with many more ads than TV uses. And the ads are for things in which I have ZERO interest (hint: STOP with the weight loss ads!). You can also eliminate any ad over 1 minute! If I want to know THAT much about anything, I’ll search for a video! Sadly, it has become all about the $. Now for the serious stuff (as opposed to the merely annoying). Creators must suffer with having their videos highjacked by ads AND stalkers! SO many creators have had death threats & stalking IRL & many other serious issues & YT does nothing! They do not take this seriously. And big tech doesn’t make it easy to find out how to complain directly to them about anything. They hide in plain sight. It’s such a shame that there really isn’t a viable alternative…yet. Remember that YT: yet.

Some problems
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.

So many problems
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.

Community Post create glitch on Mobile
Hello! 👋🏻 I would like to write a review here that even though I’m enjoying the App, one of the problems that I’m having is that the creating a Community Post is currently glitched out, as in that when I tap on “+” & choose Post, where I go to the Stage of where I make my Community Post, unfortunately, the add Image Attachments isn’t working & thinks that it’s unavailable, plus even trying to discard the Community Post entirely & I’m automatically stuck on it, as it also thinks that discarding the entire Community Post is unavailable, as currently in order to discard the entire Community Post, I have to manually close out & reopen the App, which is just annoying. So, basically that this App needs to be updated & to have those problems be fixed, so that the Image Attachments can be able to be added & if the Community Post needs to be discarded or so, it can be able to do so without having to manually close out & reopen the App every single time.

I pay for premium but cant change default resolution
I get streaming 4k is more expensive than 1080p or 720p, but I pay for premium so when I go to the settings to see why my videos look like hazy garbage, I’m frustrated that as a premium subscriber I cannot set the default to a specific resolution. Sure it says I set it for “higher picture quality.” But for the last 6 months that higher picture quality, regardless of my internet speed (home or cellular) is 720p or lower. And it’s instantly noticeable. When I manually select a resolution in the video I’m watching, it streams no problem at 1440p or 4k, but the next video defaults back to “higher quality” aka 720p garbage. This cost saving measure is a slap in the face for anyone paying the “premium” fee. And as a cost saving measure, I guarantee if they bury the setting to choose highest available quality - the average 90% of users paying for premium won’t ever touch it, but for the 10% of us sensitive to lower resolutions, give us the choice back Google! For streamed videos and for downloaded ones, 1080p max download resolution isn’t up to par any more, or ever…

You’re app is akin to a narcissistic mother
One star is now too much for you. I used to enjoy Utube but after the virus you had to label every video that doesn’t fit your narrative with some statement as if people didn’t have access to information any other way. Then you demonized several channels with thousands of followers because you want the control of telling people how and what to think. Then channels get lost in the algorithm because you don’t agree with their platform or what they say because it might hurt someone’s feelings. If a channel bothers someone they don’t have to watch it by the way. You took many off of the platform because you can’t handle people viewing any opinions based on actual factual information that is sourced. You make porn so accessible that kids can find it yet you block ideas that are just out of your comfort zone- hypocrite. Now you make everyone agree to disregard their own privacy and give their private information to any source you like because of your new sign in policy. You are a narcissistic app wanting complete power and control of all information.
