A Few Annoying Problems...

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.

Comment section is screwy

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

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!

My old playlist with 1000+ won’t show up in library playlists!!

I have a playlist for music that has over 1000 videos in it and it won’t update anymore in the library section, when I press library and scroll down after adding a new song to my playlist I don’t see it, and if I make a new playlist sometimes I won’t see it there either. I thought of making a new playlist but I don’t know how I’ll make a new playlist and transfer 1000+ videos onto it manually. I now normally have to go to my channel profile, click the playlists tab, sort by newly added to and then *maybe* I’ll get to see my music playlist but sometimes it just flat out tells me “you have no crated playlist” when I know for a fact I do, so I have to redo the whole process over again multiple times just to see my playlist because it won’t show up in the library playlists, please fix this. Also gotta add on yet again that I’ve been seeing a lot of homophobic and racist videos that aren’t removed, you can’t even report videos unless you watch them first and you can’t report channels either because the button doesn’t even work when you go to submit the report, and from what I saw on twitter it seems like you’re just trying to defend low life’s at this point, get it together.

Fine, but one detail..

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

I understand the need for advertisements but it’s to the point now that it’s negatively impacting my experience. Now that there’s two, back to back ads in every break it’s irritating how much I have to interact with the app just to finish watching the video. The more I use the app the worse the experience gets. I usually like to use the app while doing other things like cooking or cleaning. I mostly listen and don’t always have my phone in hand. In an 11 minute video with 6 ads, the middle break had a 30 second unskippable ad followed by a 2 minute ad that was skippable. Unless I am physically on my phone to return to the video that would be 2:30 minutes of ads just for 1 of 3 ad breaks in an 11 minute video. It’s overload. I get that using the free version means you gets ads but it’s overshadowing the content. I don’t want to interact this much with something I’m watching. It’s not a game app. Guess I’ll just stick to watching it on the desktop with my ad blocker. Otherwise, yeah YT is ok. They’re just getting into Pandora territory which is disappointing. Didn’t mind the ads until recently.

FIX YOUR APP GOOGLE

Since the latest update (which was 2 months ago, uncharacteristic from the normal weekly bugfix updates), I've been running into issues more and more. The two largest issues I've been running into: -Endcards in fullscreen: For some reason, endcards are placed way too far down in fullscreen, making them unreachable or very hard to reach. This is really annoying, but manageable. -Links in the Description: This is the an issue I've run into recently. Essentially, links in the description that lead you to other parts of the app are unclickable, showing you that indeed it knows you are clicking on it, but it fails to link you to the page that you clicked on. These issues could've been solved as soon as they were discovered, but it turns out that Google decided not to update the app for a specific reason: they'd have to give further privacy info, due to a new App Store requirement enforced after the day that the latest updates for all the Google apps came out. (They haven't publicly confirmed this, but it's very likely that this was the case.) So I ask Google: Get your act together, and fix your app!

the new update

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

UTube rating

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

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

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!

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…

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.

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 !
