The app keeps disconnecting my bluetooth headphones every time I try to load a video.
Google is erasing negative reviews
Javbw on 9/23/2017
This app is deficient. This app is missing features offered by others. Those others were forced to be removed from the App Store by Google. This app is geared towards YouTube’s choice of content, not your choice of content. I don’t care about ads, show me ads. don’t keep shoving content I don’t care about into my face. Instead of making their app better, they just force the good apps to be removed and erase negative reviews. Shame on you. Go write good apps and add background playback. Remove the constant need for liking and re-clicking everything just to see the content from the creators a user has already asked to see. I don’t need more makeup tutorials and YouTube drama follow up videos - let me easily and always see the content I have subscribed to _every time I open the app. _ When I did have this app installed, I dreaded it getting opened. Make an app worthy of being launched - rather than making an app marginally better than the punishing web view you foist on mobile users to drive app installs.
Mostly Good - Two Annoyances
Yahoo98 on 9/23/2017
The app works and is reliable, BUT theirs two areas of improvement. Please make the video scrubbing circle bigger and remove the option to access recommended videos by swiping up while watching a video. This conflicts with the iOS control center.
Add a dark mode

I think it is just smart you have it on the web version do it
I actually have a weird bug
guy_with_issues on 9/23/2017
I'm just watching a video and suddenly it stops, but it shows the video is still going, so I tap the pause button and it freezes a bit then allows me to control it again, so I go to watch another video, and guess what? It freezes, this has happened to me twice today, please fix this
Nice job.
DemonsForDinner77 on 9/23/2017
Nice job on having people to share videos not just on computer, but mobile! There are so many kinds of videos to watch!
One thing....
Cobalt988 on 9/23/2017
Whenever I turn it off, and back on, screen is completely black. PLEASE FIX THIS
Fix now
Jessica 🐎🐎🐎 on 9/23/2017
Whenever I'm watching a video, it suddenly freezes and when I try to click the play button, it completely freezes and I have to exit the app and it just get so annoying. Worst update ever
dill berry on 9/23/2017
This most recent update has ruined the app. Every time I pause the video and then go to play it again it plays audio but the screen is frozen. It constantly crashes and makes my phone freeze too. Very disappointing because it used to work great before the most recent updates.
Time to optimize boys - loads of errors and freezes on iOS 11
hornGuy on 9/23/2017
I’m getting lockup’s on playback, freezes on navigation selections, and content swapping screen areas on tablet rotation (right side video selection area dumping into the comments area below the main video) Dive back in guys, many fixes to be made.
Finicia's Itunes Library on 9/23/2017
Awesome tool for school help.
Rfomjabuzhhh on 9/23/2017
This latest update has made the YouTube app a disaster. I need to force close the app after every video I watch just to be able to click on another video in order to watch it.
Hate the update
AnonymousPerson82739 on 9/23/2017
Am I the only one who doesn't like the new video formatting? If I want to look at the comments the screen gets smaller and I find it annoying. Also there are way too many ads for a 10 minute video. NOW 1 STAR BECAUSE THE ADS KEEP FREEZING AND I CANT WATCH THE VIDEOS. About that small bar at the bottom of the screen that I hate because I can’t watch the video while looking for other videos and some people have had it fixed but I haven’t so idk what happened but I hate this new update.
worjfjfndie on 9/23/2017
there is a bug, when you pause and play a video quickly, the video glitches out and stops playing but the audio keeps playing

You Tube is life, very awesome
King Sarkis D on 9/23/2017
Love going on here for just about everything: pleasure, business, exploration, and everything I forgot to mention. 🤓 The important question is not what do we think of You Tube? The question is where would we be without You Tube? 🤡 And the answer to that question is sol 😬
LT#3 on 9/23/2017
It was fine before the iOS update now everything freezes except for the audio in the video
DevDaDawg on 9/23/2017
I’m on YouTube 24/7 and id love for y’all add night mode to mobile!!!!
I love it!
Jessica Colgan on 9/23/2017
I watch videos all the time here, it works great! But there are some bugs here and there that I wish would be fixed, but otherwise it's a pretty awesome app!
I love YouTube
queendj904 on 9/23/2017
YouTube is literally my life
New update is garbage
cody brothel on 9/23/2017
App freezes every other video, has to restart. Browsing screen too small.
Restriction only on cellular data.
$Lil Wayne$ 4Ever on 9/23/2017
Where’s the real update for iOS11. When I use my home WiFi, the restriction in settings is off and I can see & play all my videos. When I’m on my cellular data, the restriction is on and can’t change that and can’t see or play any of my videos. Never had this problem before... and it’s not a cellular provider’s issue. Super disappointing.
Can't play anything with the app closed
Thisisstupud on 9/23/2017
When you want to listen to music, you HAVE to keep the app open. You used to be able to use other apps with this in the background but not anymore.
New Update is trash
Tigwe on 9/23/2017
Everything freezes YouTube doesn't even respond sometimes. This new update is terrible and needs a better update or bring back the previous bc this one is giving me so much problems. Trash
Please add dark mode

I need it
I can't use the live chat any more and I need it

Whys is this happening
Nat E. on 9/23/2017
Why is it that Desktop browser version of YouTube supports FULL 4K and Mobile App Version of YouTube doesn’t?
Most entertaining app isn’t as good as before.
Staygold415 on 9/23/2017
This happens at least twice a day. Whenever I watch a YouTube video the video tends to freeze but the audio of the video continues to play. I usually get out of the app by pressing home button then I restart it to temporarily kill the problem. I also get those occasional screen rotation lock ups. Please update this app to run smoother on the new iOS 11. I’m sure iOS 11 has some compatibility issues with this app. I have faith in you guys.
Nvgcyvdnnv on 9/23/2017
Please fix the lagging. Right next to my WiFi router and still lags
Tester🔫🔫🔫 on 9/23/2017
Some times when I am playing roblox I might click a YouTube vid but that's my fault and also it is very cool no complained
Great job
Mind Arrow on 9/23/2017
Add a watch later option on notification screen
Kambry❤️💛💚💙💜 on 9/23/2017
I've had this game scene I was two years old should give this game FIVE STARs I am not kidding 😝😝😝
Fix now
digbickjeff on 9/23/2017
When I watch a video and I'm browsing to look for another video with the one playing in the bottom right corner and I tap x, it doesn't go. It just stays there with no audio and I tap another video and nothing happens. So then nothing works and I have to exit the app and find the video I was going to watch. I'm tired to doing this all the time so fix it now.
It’s good!
LPS Puma on 9/23/2017
But ever since I updated to the newest update, all the videos I watch just keeps buffering. I even try adjusting the quality, but it didn’t help. Idk it could just be my internet connection, but my internet works completely fine on YouTube music.
LilSavageG18 on 9/23/2017
Y’all Should let us be able to play it on the home screen and lock screen and remove ads
zRSx- on 9/23/2017
So before the last update with only using my data I was able to still watch videos at the 1080-720p res, but now its just at 480 or 360p and you can't change it to be higher lol. Fix this because it irritating and why can change the resolution on data, but Youtube you can't?
You did it again...
gagefarris on 9/23/2017
That Playback bug is back, you know, where I want to go back 10 seconds it either goes below or over to a certain section It's annoying you know
Fix youR app
Beis de on 9/23/2017
Fix your stupid app
Too many ads after last update
whocares82 on 9/23/2017
I understand that your revenue comes from ads. However, ads in the middle of a video that is less than five minutes long is utterly unacceptable. I don’t even know if I can use this app anymore because right in the middle of a video a 30 second ad pops up. Ridiculous!
beyond my favorite app, but...
Haters stop on 9/23/2017
i freaking love this app, it’s an need for your everyday life. but it’s takes a long time to load the video when i click 1080 quality, i have checked my wifi many many times and i don’t think it’s my wifi. please fix this if you can, the quality is so bad!
Kinda Glitchy, Too Expensive
Eiphes on 9/23/2017
Listen. I'm not going to pay $13 a month for Youtube Red, that's way too expensive. I'd be much more likely to buy it if it was more like, $6-7 a month, just saying.
Egg baby 10114 on 9/23/2017
I love you tube sooo much ✌🏻

Fun__Sized on 9/23/2017
With the new screen recording option, I figured this would mean an easier way to capture and post gameplay videos from my phone. Turns out I was wrong. The game I recorded was in landscape mode, and looked just fine in the iOS Photo app. However, after 3 attempts at reuploading, every single time my video ended up being rotated to portrait mode and squished to the left-most part of the video player. Watching videos is just fine, but until this uploading issue is fixed my rating will stay as is.
Used to be good
Zoomzompow on 9/23/2017
I use this app like everyday but the past week it only plays 3-4 minutes of video then stop. I have to keep turing off and on my internet to fix the issue every 3-4 minuets! What is a 10 minute video turned into 15. And all my other video apps like Hulu and Netflix work fine. I’ve already restarted my phone and re downloaded the app. Please fix this!!
I want a "back" button.
MPLS for all on 9/23/2017
I still can't figure out how to watch a video and then go back to my search results. It's one of the most frequent things I do. After watching a video I'm suggested other videos but many of those aren't appropriate to my initial search results. Also I'd like an indication that I've already watched a video.
It takes a long time to upload
Angelo pre on 9/23/2017
It takes a long time for me to upload a video! And my video is only a minute long, and it says that there is "one hour remaining" for my video to upload. I'm not sure if this is a "bug" but if so can you please fix it.
Broken with iOS 11
Philly Union on 9/23/2017
After the release of iOS 11, the app has issues buffering: it is always buffering. I can watch approximately 30 seconds of video before it stops to buffer for 10. I know this is a problem with the app, because videos load fine when I use my Chrome app instead. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED ASAP
Zombiekillerss10 on 9/23/2017
This update just made YouTube 10x glitchier
New update is crap!
jacobsams02 on 9/23/2017
The new update completely messed up the quality section option, when my video looks like a potato and I want to watch a HD video I try clicking the quality I want and it just doesn’t change the resolution.
