iPad standby battery drain
Battlecakes on 6/26/2017
Eats 100% of my battery in <24 hours while my iPad is asleep. That's with the app minimized and Background App Refresh turned OFF in the ipad's Settings. If I don't remember to completely quit this app every single time I use it I wind up with a dead iPad ☹️👎
Streaming to devices is unreliable
|GuardianReflex| on 6/26/2017
Trying to consistently connect to the same Roku or TV with this app is a chore when it even works, please fix the god awful UI slapped on for this functionality and make it core to using the app and as functional as other options.
I love YT (KawaiiKittygamingYT_ )

Great app
Mark m w 6 on 6/26/2017
I can easily go to YouTube without searching for it online
The subscription tab?
TrackSnap on 6/26/2017
It used to have a nice display of videos from all my subscribers while having a bar at the top of the tab. That's bad allowed you to choose the icon of any channel you subscribed to, to tap on if i wanted to filter to one creators content instead of the mix. Now the subscriber page is just that bar minus the amazing feed of videos from all the creators, so now i have to scroll through all their channels to see what videos each of them have downloaded. Why do it like that? It's inefficient and looks ugly ):
Don't remember
Want to keep remaining troops on 6/26/2017
There is an unwanted person I subscribed to called Geass Universe and I don't remember subscribing and I can't unsubscribe because there is no button that says unsubscribe so please fix this I don't remember subscribing to this guy so please put those little dots next to each channel so I can be able to unsubscribe and I tried searching him up on channels and he's not there!
Playlists Still Not Showing Up
BoomBiddyByeBye on 6/26/2017
I save playlists of various playlists of walkthroughs to games played by YouTubers, but some don't seem to actually save into my library. I saved the walkthroughs to Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide, but only the playlist for Dead Island is showing up in my library. Please fix this. This has been a problem for me for awhile!!
Really hate this app now
Crazysierra on 6/26/2017

Love YouTube, the app not so much. I just want to be able to play the music in the background. Y'all even took that ability away when using safari.
Worse than the native safari player
Jamesarama on 6/25/2017
This app is worse than just using the native safari player: 1. You can't play the video while you are outside the app 2. Scrubbing is harder to do since it doesn't support different speeds. 3. The interface is worse, (small buttons etc) 4. Generally, nothing works any better, even the speed and quality seems worse.
Can't view on television
DKuzLA on 6/25/2017
There used to be a button that allowed video to instantly stream on my TV set through my roku player, but now it's gone. Why would you remove it?
Its ok I guess...
Lindsay Newsome on 6/25/2017
I love this app! But when I upload videos I kinda get embarrassed by the thumbnail of them so just add that please. Also the wifi goes off and on sometimes which gets on my nerves. Over all I love this app!! Just a few problems and errors but it's pretty good even though my thumbnails look stupid (off topic, sorry lol)
watch later
Marisoto1 on 6/25/2017
in the recent update the video count for watch later was removed, and I HATE it! Please bring back the video count i'd like to know how many videos are in my watch later.

App background refresh?
Nuclear_Nucleus on 6/25/2017
This app is great, don't get me wrong but there's one thing that absolutely crushes my soul every time I see it. And dear god does it happen a lot. So basically, every time you exit YouTube (you don't even have to close the tab) and come back to it like 5 minutes later it will completely reload. This means that the video that you were watching has closed (good luck finding that again unless you remember the title). I don't if this was intentional, which it probably was, but I despise it.
Eh......😑
night wtahcer on 6/25/2017
There's a bug where whoever posted a comment you couldn't see the comment....but I guess it's fine
Where did my subscriptions go?
kellymariexx3 on 6/25/2017
After the most recent update when I use the app I can no longer find the videos from the people I actually want to watch in my subscriptions tab. Bring them back!
Great
Sniff bork on 6/25/2017
Great just get rid of misha
Can't play video's audio in background
M10n on 6/25/2017
YouTube goes out of their way to disable this feature on mobile browsers, so why not enable it in the app. The fact that this feature was removed so they can charge $10 a month for it was a dumb move that simply makes the YouTube mobile experience worse. Let's face it: few people are going to pay $10 a month to get this feature on YouTube Red. For $10/month you could get a Netflix subscription. YouTube Red offers their own original content too. But let's face it: most people would rather watch Dexter, DareDevil, and Breaking Bad rather than watch Logan Paul attempt acting. You could also sign up for a similarly priced Amazon Prime subscription and have a streaming library and free shipping. EDIT: The app video also goes of sync with the audio fairly often. Then I have to exit the app. This issue should have been fixed before there was any talk about charging a monthly fee.
Battery Killer Bug
Tillering101 on 6/25/2017
Kills iPhone battery when open but phone is locked. Tries to auto play and drains battery! Annoying! Please fix! 12-1-16 Now killing iPad battery when not closed but iPad is sleeping. 6-25-17
Live streaming
Still bad on 6/25/2017
Why can only people over a certain sub count stream live from their phones on the app. This will prevent many small channels to do much live streaming and it's not fun for them. I'm not ever going to give YouTube five stars until they allow everyone to stream from the mobile app.
🤣😂
Mangle223 on 6/25/2017

Japhet chukwuma on 6/25/2017
I can't connect my phone to my ps3 to play vids. And can you guys make it so we can finally connect to computers pls.
Flushed my profile but I'm still signed in
jwriegel on 6/25/2017
With this update, the app flushed all of my subscriptions, watch history and activity even though I'm still signed in. That stuff is all still there when I sign in through a browser.
Immature

It's a good app but I want that they can put offline mode if you don't have internet or you're on a trip and you're in a road they must put it
Bug
NightFly542 on 6/25/2017
This is the sixth time I've had to write about a bug. Now in the comment section the amount of likes and replies is incorrect.
Video quality defaults to lowest quality
ChicagoBears15 on 6/25/2017
I have very fast internet, but whenever watching a YouTube video for the first 15 seconds it defaults to the lowest quality possible then works it's way up. This is incredibly annoying.

Youtube is super glitchy and needs to fix quality problems.

Bugs
Capitcha on 6/25/2017
There are two things I noticed. 1. When I tried to make a new account it made me put the month of when I was born, I put it in but it won't let me go back. 2. This happens rarely when the audio repeats itself but the video does not.
"Something went wrong"
Pllopp on 6/25/2017
Everytime I click on a video, it displays a "Something went wrong" warning and it will not load. I do not understand why. This was never a big problem for me before this update, but now the warning is constant. Youtube works on other wireless devices in the browser, so I know it is this app. I have re downloaded and restarted my phone but the problem still persists. This is very tedious.
Apple TV version is garbage
Toldaddy on 6/25/2017
A few things for the AppleTV version: About a third of the time when I press 'menu' to go back it takes me out of the app. Can't rate videos. Subtitles randomly turn on. Please show the name of the channel below the videos on the home screen. You show it in subscription, why not here as well? Bonus: let us view and write comments with Siri. PS4 has a much better app, can the AppleTV please get some love...?
Minimizing videos and suggestions + bug
VictorMM_108090 on 6/25/2017
Bug when minimizing videos Should have the option to choose next videos to watch Auto pause feature when there is a call
Dissatified!
Dee Natural on 6/25/2017
I don't like that you have to purchase a subscription.
Love it except
Public Monday on 6/25/2017
Work on the payment for all you tubers
Great app never crashes on my iPhone 6s.
Mad driver 2 on 6/25/2017
Love the app. I enjoy the humor of the developers when releasing an update: "fixed bugs, mowed the lawn, no time for a nap". Great app. Thanks.
Glaring problem as of now
Blinky7725 on 6/25/2017
Every time I check a notification, 2 seconds into the video it's on the app just crashes. This is a huge problem because if I want to see what happened I'll need to do it manually which pisses me off. Fix this bug which shouldn't even be happening in such an advanced version of YouTube in the first place
Add searching to liked videos.
Fjghghthggn on 6/25/2017
PLEASE ADD SEARCHING TO LIKED VIDEOS IM TRYING TO FIND A JAZZ VIDEO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
Pretty okay
KelseyChan on 6/25/2017
Remove the Activity Tab! It's useless!!! I already get notifications, and the new tab just gives me another thing to check so I can get rid of the 30+ notifications I get PER DAY, EVERY DAY. Also, please add a delete button where you press the delete button, and you can either press DELETE ALL or SELECT. The SELECT button will put a red - button next to each video so you can delete the ones you've watched. Or you could just automatically delete which vids you've already watched (this can be turned on/off)
Please fix
Omgtherejejeksls on 6/25/2017
Ok I'm done.Why does it take months to fix a tiny bug.Every Time I try to exit full screen mode I get stuck with it.I always have to restart the app.I also have to mention the "bad connection" bar showing up when I have wifi.I don't get how these things get ignored until someone mentions it but it still takes months to "fix".
Fix the bugs
Ninjamanme on 6/25/2017
AFTER ALL THE UPDATE FIX THE THE BUGS STUPID
