Speeding up and slowing down voices
dashssgss on 1/23/2018
Speeding up and slowing down voices at times can’t skip and make it catch up
Please fix the freeze!
Ramslo Quartet on 1/23/2018
Please please please please please fix the screen freeze! The Screen freezes, but the audio keeps going, and it locks up the phone. It happens even more with the latest update. I would gladly give this app five stars except for the crashing! I reinstalled, didn’t help. Please fix!
Fix please
Brio rouge on 1/23/2018
When I watch a video the voices and the video goes fast and has a high pitch voice and slows down and sounds deep when I start a video and during it. Please fix this so I won’t have to keep going in and out of the video so voice and speed can be normal. The speed is normal so this should not be happening.
I love YouTube but..
Vincentvalentine on 1/23/2018
I love this app I really do, but when I go to my music playlist and it doesn’t have a shuffle option that’s kinda annoying I would really appreciate the shuffle being re-added

One star
NornaNS on 1/23/2018
Love the ability to listen off screen, but my independent news feed subscriptions don’t show in my feed automatically like propaganda news channels who have my least valued interests in mind the welfare of someone else’s I will cancel at the end of my 90day trial..but it was nice to have TOOL 🎶 available.
just bad
cbpxx on 1/23/2018
for the past 2 months ive been experiencing this bad quality that when watching a video, the persons voice slows down and becomes so much deeper. and when i try to speed it, it speeds up so much that when i try to pause it, and play again it speeds up on its own. so horrible. i use to love youtube. deleting app .
Buggy as all bugged out
FairbanksRhino on 1/23/2018
Ever since last update, YouTube has quit working multiple times in the middle of videos...
Awesome app! However...
Chumbai on 1/23/2018
Awesome app! Lots of good stuff on it. However, I miss the simplicity of swiping the screen to switch to other screens. New updates 13.02.9 has removed this feature.
Hangs in the latest version
Kernalmode on 1/23/2018
0 stars if I could
iWatch compatibles
Fitblonde518 on 1/23/2018
I wish the YouTube Red app was compatible with the iWatch! Would make workouts much easier!
Playback speed bug.
at Allen on 1/23/2018
Video will randomly speed up without the control to revert it back to normal speed. Seems to happen when I switch tasks and go back to YouTube.
Squeaky voices
Bobbystl on 1/23/2018
I keep getting random freezing and high-pitched squeaky voices.
Youtube red is worthless
ScreamingGoat43 on 1/23/2018
Youtube red is $12.99 per month for maybe 30-40 crappy videos that don’t interest me. You’re giving money to losers that never worked a hard day in their life. Not worth $12.99 per month, what a rip off.
Needs another update
Mk Washington on 1/23/2018
Everytime I'm watching a YouTube video the video stops on its own. No matter what the video kept re-stopping when I'm playing the video
This app is laggy
ottomack '04 on 1/23/2018
1. When I’m watching a video the audio slows down at a certain moment, and when I try to put it back to the specific moment it sends me way farther into the video than I was before 2. The video itself stops for seconds and when it begins the video is shown super fast as if I was able to scan the screen with a cyborg eye 3. The previews when you scroll take forever to load and when they do you have to be connected to faster than average internet so that you can keep previewing the video

Glitched speed watching
Willi@m1 on 1/23/2018
I hate it. Each time I’m watching a video it glitches out and speeds up. I’ll rest the app and it’ll be worse. I rest the phone it doesn’t help !!
Mal sonido
Jonathannk9 on 1/23/2018
Después de la última actualización los videos al cargarlo se le atrasa el sonido oh se le pones más rápido.. suelo estar viendo un video y de repente cambia de velocidad solo el sonido del video.. ya casi no puedo usar la aplicación por el mismo problema siempre..
Awesome 👌🏻

Great creativity🐠 very useful app 💐🌹💕
Good but some flaws
Da wae123 on 1/23/2018
I love the app but why remove random playlists, lots of people use them. Please bring it back.
Eddieb26 on 1/23/2018
Everything I've dreamed of. I can close the YouTube app while the music still plays. Dreams do come true.
LivinGodLoud on 1/23/2018

paj123_ on 1/23/2018

We need darkMode or loop the video
sallem almosallam on 1/23/2018
This app is the most addictive app ever made but it’s missing dark mode and loop
What is going on!
Popcorn00106 on 1/23/2018
Google you make billions, please start paying someone to test you’re app on most phones my iPhone 7 Plus has so many issues with some of the most basic items in the app there are no bottom buttons anymore!!! Not all of the features work play back speed, quality, auto play, and notifications. The new dark them is very difficult to read and all of the extra text squeezed onto each tile makes it so small you hardly can read anything. Very unsatisfactory
autoplay feature can't be turned off when casting
Megraphix on 1/23/2018
i use this app w my xbox one all the time. for some reason you can't disable the autoplay feature. it always beings up the video queue and adds in more videos. i have this autoplay disabled on my phone and xbox app but it overrides and keeps auto playing. please fix this bs!
Good but needs improvement
the anillator on 1/23/2018
I like the app for YouTube. However, it needs one small change. Whenever i go to make a livestream with the youtube app, it keeps freezing and it wont let me make a thumbnail and then it completely stops the app altogether. And just to let u know, i make my videos with this app. So YouTube, u better fix this or else
Aggravating lack of sorting purchases
hj1973 on 1/23/2018
Seriously? How hard is it to allow users to sort purchases alphabetically? I have hundreds and it is a PITA to find a particular movie
Amazing app
周后裔 on 1/23/2018
WmH2 on 1/23/2018
I don’t know how many times I have turned off Auto Play in the past. On your websites, on the various apps. And not it’s back on and I can’t find the setting to turn it off ... again... I have a laundry list of why I don’t want you to start another video. And I can appreciate that most of your users probably like the feature, but if I turn it off and am logged into your service, it should stay off.
Please fix if possible
HawaiianboyJohn on 1/22/2018
Sometimes while I’m watching a video it will start playing fast like it’s sped up or slow. Not sure if it’s something wrong with my phone but it’s getting frustrating.

cruz5429 on 1/22/2018

Tmonye3 on 1/22/2018

Buggy and unintuitive for years now
Jesus_s55 on 1/22/2018

Distracting more less later UI
Qqsss on 1/22/2018
Please remove
I think I have an addiction, but
htecwik88 on 1/22/2018
Some bugs! 1. Sometimes the first two or three seconds of a video play twice and all the video and audio are desynced for the rest of the video. 2. This one is recent. If you seek back at the very start of a video (perhaps to cure bug 1), sometimes it skips forward to halfway into the video and then you go back to the beginning, everything is low-pitched and super slow. Fix these bugs to get a five-star rating!
Not to bad.....
animal lover4 on 1/22/2018
It’s not that bad . BUT the problem is “restricted mode “ blocks everything even when it really doesn’t seem inappropriate though.Also it freezes sometimes but I’m happy it’s not freezing all the time 😊😊Also I like how you can get notifications on your phone
Fix iPhone X interface
gabe.v on 1/22/2018
When casting, the Scrub bar is super close to the home bar. Really annoying

Satclu on 1/22/2018
YouTube has never failed me, I watch YouTube whenever I have the chance, I can literally search anything I want to watch and there will always be some videos on everything, so YouTube is the best app ever!!!
