Video sound is horrible on iOS 11.1.2 iPhone 7 (buzzing all the time)
Youtube is great
Jp3po on 11/19/2017
I personally think without youtube I would be really bored with my time if it wasn't for it I would be miserable.I think youtube is a great source of entertainment and to too it all off youtube offers recommended videos depending on what you watch and also lets you create your own playlist.The app on ios is just as good maybe even better than you going online to use the app on PC trust me great universal app for everyone I advise everyone to download this app.
Latest app does not work well on ipad 2
KennethBui on 11/19/2017
After upgrading to latest version, I search and try to play a youtube clip on my ipad 2, but it does not work. But if I select any suggested clip from home, it plays normally. Wait the update for this problem soon. :(
Did Good But Some Bugs
Ghx cb f on 11/19/2017
So I think that they actually did a good job with the app. However, there are some bugs to address, for instance, where it freezes up sometimes.
Filters No Longer Functional
rhold17 on 11/18/2017
The filter to sort videos by relevance, upload date, etc , no longer works. It won’t filter by channel either.
Speaker crackling
CRryan on 11/18/2017
All videos played in the app have speaker crackling on the iPhone 8 Plus. There is no crackling when playing the same videos in Safari. There is no crackling in other video player or music player apps, it’s only in the YouTube app.
Youtube crashing
Majizztic on 11/18/2017
I really hate youtube’s idiotic algorithm and their stupid policies. Lately when I go to read some comments on my iphone 7 plus and tap on read more the youtube app crashes immediately. It keeps on doing this every single time.
iOS 11.2 update causing choppy clipped audio
Kersskerner on 11/18/2017
The app has gone downhill since they rolled out pay version, but now the most recent iOS update is making video unwatchable.
absolutely love

Sebaskatebaker on 11/18/2017

RayBubba7 on 11/18/2017

YouTube Fan
Mitichess on 11/18/2017
I’m a long time user. And I enjoy the various videos from all genre. But now the video has a major bug in its format. When a video format starts you cannot change it to landscape or back because it’s stuck in its initial format. What’s even more annoying is you cannot come out of this format to select or search!? I’m not sure if Google is aware of this problem. I hope it will be fix soon.
This app is not “stupid”
Je*u*s_ on 11/18/2017
As I said “this game is not stupid” it’s popular.I mean if we never had YouTube what would we do?We would bored!Youtube is a good app.
Horribly buggy
mthomas456 on 11/18/2017
So I just recently updated YouTube and oh my god the app keeps crashing it's crashed about 10 times in one day it's horrific. Also when I go into vertical mode on my iPad and go back into horizontal mode the app breaks!
Just another otaku!!! on 11/18/2017
There s one bug that's super annoying I've tried everything to stop it but it keeps happening, when I search a video and I try clicking on it to watch it but the dumb app won't let me click on it
Tendency to freeze or be slow
aeorho on 11/18/2017
I enjoy YouTube and I use this app often, but since the recent update and my iOS update, there are times when after a video completes the app freezes for 1 to 2 minutes unless I press the home button—it freezes for maybe 30 seconds in that case. The speed of the app is noticeably slower and nothing has changed on my end internet-wise. Hope these issues can be fixed in the next update
Sound issue
Alegodude44 on 11/18/2017
Causes speaker to crackle and pop

southwest zombies on 11/18/2017

Full screen mode stuck
Ggjth on 11/18/2017
Needs to be updated to avoid getting stuck in full screen mode. Pretty frustrating when it happens almost every day now.
Bugs to work out
Kartik92 on 11/18/2017
Will always rely on this app, and it's a big part of my life. One little thing... why does the app keep crashing every 5 minutes! This happens on both my tablet AND my smartphone! It's really starting to be a problem! Please fix this when you get a chance
There is a bug 🐛...
Some😐person on 11/18/2017
During my free time I’m watching a video, then the screen freezes but not the sound. Afterwards I can’t do anything besides turn off my phone and go back into the app. Which is very annoying. So can u pls fix it. Also I’m trying to upload my first video from my phone, but it says it’s not working, I have good internet, but it’s not working. I’m pineapple_kid 1738
I don’t know what happened
Aleshiaa on 11/18/2017
So I just updated my phone to the new update and I can usually play YouTube videos while I have other apps open if that makes sense but now it just lags on
Weird glitch???
Paizley Cat on 11/18/2017
I went on YouTube and scrolled down and for some reason two of the same video with same name and thumbnail popped up and they were right next to each other. I know one of them aren’t fake because they have the same amount of subs, views, and time it was made.
Needs a bigger fix
ᑎEEᗪᔕ ᖴᒪIGᕼT ᕼEᒪᑭ on 11/18/2017
I don’t want to video and I want to change videos I will usually go into where is the rectangle on the bottom right corner screen and then I can tap on the video I want and then the whole thing freezes and I have to go back into the app and it will keep going and it gets really annoying I think the next update should be this not anymore iPhone X bug fixes
Love it
Bobster the lobster45 on 11/18/2017

RescueGabe on 11/18/2017
When you watch a video it freezes for 10 seconds or just stays frozen, the audio keeps going... I’m on an IPhone 6s Plus with YouTube Red Please Fix
Can’t block Trump?
DBHme on 11/18/2017
Why does this app keep sending me push notifications recommending videos from Trump’s re-election campaign? Even when I have the account blocked? That’s messed-up, guys. Real creepy. Congrats, I’m forced to turn off notifications from this app. If this keeps up, I’m deleting the app. Thanks for the extra reminder that a fascist gangster has hijacked our government. Just what everyone needs in their life.
Keeps on playing after minimize on iOS
Navi and kj on 11/18/2017
Why you contents are still playing after you exit like pushing home button it suppose pause or something with recent update with iOS it is doing it ever since. Any possible fix. Every time I have stop the app completely in order stop its playback. Otherwise I will keep hearing what I was playing.
SanDiegoSuperChargers on 11/18/2017
Sometimes when I’m in fully screen and press pause and then press play, sound will play but the screen will freeze up and then u have to restart he app. His is on an iPhone
Love it but some things need to be fixed.......
The Foosa on 11/18/2017
I really like all the videos load really quickly. And you can video for your own channel off of your phone or anything like that. But I mostly use YouTube to listen to nightcore and music. But when I add it to a playlist I goes straight to the bottom of the list. I remembered before that I could move around the playlist how ever I like but I’m not sure if you’ll ever bring that back. I would also like to add can you listen to whatever you were listening to after you exit the app like Pandora? That would be amazing! I could actually listen to the music I like with knowing what’s coming on next unlike other apps!! Otherwise I really like how you made the app work.😁😁
Not loading Hi def! Too much buffering!
LizS1977 on 11/18/2017
Fix the loading and blurry videos! I have it to watch hi def on WiFi and it’s not autoplaying to high def!
Had to uninstall
Miked784 on 11/18/2017
I noticed after the recent update it was making a static popping sound only in the YouTube app. Music plays fine calls are good. Just the app does it. So I just use YouTube thru safari

About YouTube Red...
Kia214 on 11/18/2017
I’m not getting all alerts when people respond to my comments. Sometimes the video gets stuck in a corner when in landscape. You guys should offer 3 different packages with YouTube Red: 1) exclusive YouTube Red content, music stream, ad free and background play; 2) unlimited music streaming only; and 3) background play only. YouTube Red is good in theory but the fact of the matter is I pay $5 for Apple Music- I do not need another music streaming subscription. I also do not care about YouTube Red exclusive content. I hate ads, but they’re not the end of the world. THE ONLY APPEALING THING TO ME ABOUT YOUTUBE RED IS BACKGROUND PLAY! I would love to listen to my “podcasts” as I’m scrolling down Twitter. I hate having to pick between both platforms. Please consider! PS - on Amazon Fire, I’m able to make a “queue”. We should also have that ability on the mobile app into addition to auto play. We should also be able to sort our “to watch play list” in multiple orders. And give us a “live alerts” only bell alert option!
pretty much the dumbest devs ever
HerbS2urnerves on 11/18/2017
if youtube app was a videogame it would be dead by now. these devs are excruciatingly stupid. so if you are writing a comment while the current video is finished and autoplay starts the next video than you cant stop writing the comment. the only way to regain any control over the app after that is to force close it. this is what they do with the hundreds of millions they make off youtube. they buy drugs and get high. as opposed to actually making a working product.
Violet Ink on 11/18/2017
WTH YouTube fix the search engine on the app it was easier to just swipe left to look through categories! And if you were gonna do that! MAKE A CHECK MARK APPEAR SO I KNOW I SELECTED IT PLEASE. PLEASE MAKE THE SEARCH ENGINE NORMAL AGAIN!
Remove channels exploiting children
Hannahighpoint on 11/18/2017
YouTube - please stop serving children disgusting videos of girls dressed as Elsa being tortured all the name of children’s entertainment. These channels need to be removed immediately. And donate all ad revenue from these channels to a charity for abused children. #elsagate

Random Glitches
isthatkimmi on 11/18/2017
The app isn’t the worst BUT some of the controls don’t work when connected to chromecast. The volume control, play/pause buttons and scrolling back or forth to a certain time in the videos don’t work half the time when I’m using the app.
Still awful, big surprise.
Taz6202 on 11/18/2017
As if having a ton a crap channels thrown at you wasn’t bad enough now there making it so the good content creators are leaving. I hope whoever is in charge of this tire fire gets let go. Also I don’t care about your crap live channels that have one person watching them, there garbage. Thanks for pushing away all the good content creators. I’m sure twitch is super excited that you keep shooting yourself in the foot. GG!
Niggalessbcage on 11/18/2017
It says that I’m restricted to watch everything when u wasn’t restricted before so can you fix this? Plz bye I love YouTube so much but now I don’t really... but if you can fix it I would love it plzi turned off restricted mode on google plus but it is back it says it is blocked by an administrator am I the only one who is have this problem plz fix!!
