Even after every new update, I've noticed some problems which is seen all over my devices. Not as smooth and functional as it used to be I guess. FYI I've always kind of used the best devices available each year, so I guess never was the device's fault but the app's fault. So in reality the Youtube app is the greatest mobile video app for now but with occasional difficulties with the app's functionality. I guess it isn't much of a problem for most of us though.

I understand the need to make money. But, seriously? The amount ads are getting out of hand. I was fine when it was one ad before the video started and maybe one across the length of a video but now it's one ad before and then a bunch through out the videos. I love this app but am slowly loosing interest in coming to YouTube if I end up watching more content in advertising then I do the content I want to watch. Full Review

Well you've finally done it! I've been avoiding, successfully, for two years to update the app, because i actually like the old app better and it's much more reliable. But now I've been getting the 404 error message that wouldn't alow me to play any videos so i was FORCED to update. Really low move. As soon as I find a reliable substitute you app is getting the hell out of my phone. Full Review

Lately when I get notifications while I'm watching a video the video pauses or messes up. And sometimes the whole app crashes. Also I think the ads are messing up too? Like sometimes ads don't show up when I click on a video and its just a blank video with the play button in the middle. And when I'm in the middle of a video and an ad is supposed to play it does the same thing. When I press the play button it does the loading thing for a second before it goes back to the play button. I have to close and reopen the video to get it to work properly. Full Review

I'd give this 5 star cuz I use youtube daily. But it's been super glitchy lately. Replaying episode I've just finished watching. And I put everything in my queue and yet it still doesn't play the next vid it just replays. So instead of putting things in to play in order I constantly have to watch the list to make sure the next one actually plays next... annoying. Hopefully it's fixed soon. Full Review

Last update was soo bad. virtual buttons on screen won't vanish unless you tap the X button on the bottom right side. Idk if you really want no make it better or else. Dev, you really should think of simplicity. Yep. App size is gradually getting larger, like 140MB now. For what? X button? Full Review

I would grade this app 5 stars if only you did not remove the swiping gesture when closing videos. Sigh!! I dont really like having to click again one button to close it. I had to manually go down my screen just to click the annoying X button. Dont update it into Google Material design. It's ugly. I would have wanted it to stay the same as before. Full Review

New review: About 5 times out of 10, the YouTube app crashes and resets my phone. It wasn't doing this before and I can tell that it's the app as nothing else on my phone crashes. The worst part is, after the app crashes, My phone won't detect my SIM card! Worst still, my phone now crashes occasionally (that behavior started with The YT app). Overall, to the people reading this, AVOID this app like the plague so that your phone can be safe. *Not mentioned in this review: The Countless amount of bugs with the app. Full Review

YouTube is one of those apps where you want to turn the auto-update off from the Play Store. When it works fine, don't look back and never ever update the app or it will cripple one of the vital features sooner or later and will take months to provide a fix. Don't fix something that isn't broken. If I give you a specific example, I updated the app by mistake and now when you are casting to an Android TV, the first video will play fine but then it will not advance to the next video on the queue but instead it will do either one of the two: Play the video you just played once again or try to play the video you just played once again but this time it freezes on the Loading message indefinitely until you pick up your phone again and press play. Yeah, so DO NOT GAMBLE WITH UPDATES. If the app works fine for you now, take the money and run like a mad man. Full Review

Most popular, most used, and best video streaming app/website ever. Others buffers for quite a while, this one doesn't. In seconds (depending the internet connection), you can watch a video right away. Provides a heck ton of video quality options (12K maybe? I forgot). Streaming needs to be fixed, that's it!

YouTube doesn't load videos when using data. Works OK with wifi. Cannot open any YT video at all - infinity spin occur. First of all, I thought this is an issue with my T-Mobile carrier. Called them but they told this is the problem with YouTube app itself. Updated to the newest version, still an issue on my device and some my family and friends devices. Full Review

Hey youtube, I think there is a bug on it because I have the Motorola version, and every time you click the arrow to go back 10 seconds, it always goes 10 seconds forward. Also, please remove the X button because that is very disturbing. Thank u if u get this message :) Full Review

Bad rating due to my auto play not working. I hate when I'm trying to listen to music and listen to an instructional video and when the next one comes on I have to go to my phone and press next video. What is the point of auto play if it does t work. Everyone HATES ads stop it. I don't want to have to pay a monthly fee just so I don't have to see ads GOD! Full Review

For the most part it's ok. There are a few hiccups every here and there, and the devs don't listen to people. Lastly is the new UI. It's terrible. At least give us a choice. The old red UI was much better. Not updating to the new version simply because of that. Full Review

You know when you watch a video full-screen on a phone and the title is in the top left corner well the number of views used to be right under that. Please bring that back. I don't like that I have to click on the description to look at the exact number of views a video has. Full Review

This app is good and I spend hours everyday using it. Overtime, I have noticed many flaws. One, sometimes the ads do not load and as a result, the video does not play at all. This occurs rather frequently and brief instances at a time. Also, after watching some forced ads, some videos do not load which is infuriating as you have to reload it and watch another ad in the process Full Review

This app has gone from 1 advertisement every 3-4 videos which was tolerable, to an advertisement every video no matter the length, some 30 seconds long with no skip option. YouTube, you used to be cool, stop screwing over your creators, forcing ads down everyone's throats and pretending nothing is wrong. Honestly I hope some large competitor comes out with a fairer system than yours and you lose a decent chunk of your user base. Full Review

The worst there ever was. It has like a billion ads that play at a volume that would even annoy the neighbors 3 blocks away and at the same time the video you're trying to watch is super quiet. Either show us ads or collect our data, don't be greedy and do both! And give us a model where we pay you so that you neither collect data nor show us ads Full Review

I'm kinda disappointed and sad, cuz I don't really always using internet so I download the videos to offline, and after the latest update the download function is no longer available. Why??? Does the download function have bad effects to the owners of the videos? I just wanna know, cuz I've downloaded a lot of videos and they're my favourites. Please reply!!! Full Review

Please, I don't like how you guys changed, when you "swipe" a video to the side it makes a mini video that keeps playing. But now yoy made it harder to see when Im scrolling, and much more frustrating, when you swipe for it to close, only to know that it wont, you have to swipe downwards. Im just not used to it, can you add settings, wherein I can switch it back. Full Review

12/15/17: what's with error 400? Just because iPhone does updates doesn't mean everyone has to. The update that came down 11/29 has messed up the upper right corner functionality, making every single time you touch a jump to another video. Here's the hack: press and hold to activate the correct functionality; that usually works and doesn't always do. I know, #firstworldproblem Full Review

Fix it up cause it's irritating me like hell!!!! U this app crashes and a whole bunch of stupid ads. R u people trying to tell us to leave your app?? Then simply do it! Otherwise fix up its original problems instead of giving useless updates. Older versions were better than this damn new version. FIX IT UP. Stupid people Full Review

It's still crashing. It keeps crashing while I'm watching videos. The UI stutters and crashes when I'm switching between subscriptions, activity, and home tab. Sometimes crashes when minimizing a video. Constantly disconnects from Chromecast and crashes. Bugs. Bugs. Bugs galore. It has me sending crash reports 5 times an hour. It crashes while trying to even read comments. There's this new guy where if you're casting to a Chromecast and close the app, when you open it back up, you can't comment or view replies.

The video timeline bar changes in horizontal length when you syart to move the timeline marker around. Can never accurately get to the part of the video that I want. In addition, YouTube needs to treat content creators with proper respect, not the way it is now. Youtube needs to change this. Full Review

Update half year later: subscription feed still doesn't work. App doesn't show subscription feed (shows as empty), which was the last useful thing after the removal of collections (feeds). The "home" feed that YouTube wants to push so badly is useless: shows videos that are years old (i wanted to check on latest uploads, since subscription seems broken), or "suggests" videos/channels that are absolutely unrelated to what I subscribe already.

Chromecast issues. Randomly for seemingly no reason my youtube app will refuse to connect to my chromecast or lose connection and then not let me reconnect until I reboot the chromecast.

This last update is causing the videos to constantly buffer. When I open the app, my screen buffers before list of videos appear. All videos are playing at 144 resolution and if I change the resolution, it starts to buffer more. Live streaming videos constantly buffer as well. Please fix. Landscape mode doesn't always respond and I'm having to turn phone a couple times before it responds. Full Review

What was the point of this update? It's not bad, however instead of giving us actually good features we could use you just change the UI every couple of months. Why? What was wrong with the previous or the previous UI. Edit: Seriously why would you change the video minimization? When minimizing the video instead of the video I get sonw irrelevant information Good job. Full Review
