Was an avid YouTube red user. Now it’s $16 a month? Not happening. If I could rate 0 stars, I would. I don’t need to watch these videos anymore. I don’t care for ads but I don’t care for paying $16 even more. You lost my business all together.
Why the downgrade?
Mr. Shikadi on 6/22/2018
I have an iPhone 6s and I used to see 1440p videos. Now is capped at 1080p. Why?
Playback issue
Dan Guzman831 on 6/22/2018
Is it either the app, net neutrality, or my device, sometimes when watching a video, it freezes after five seconds, is it alright to fix that issue?
1-Man on 6/22/2018
by GAY GooGoo! You leave a video up and go back to app later and not only is the video no longer up, but also there is no return back page option nor a search history! Pathetic! Why? Gay monkey foreign staffed cess pool dump YouTube. Slobs have taken over the video industry. And Gay Google wants you to get their stupid app over just playing off the web site. Get competent SLOBS! Get unCORRUPT donkeys.
Screen won’t rotate when turned sideways after most recent update. Hot garbage.
mikhail9274 on 6/22/2018
Can’t see anything due to screen being locked into the smaller vertical mode. Checked my screen lock setting, that wasn’t the issue. Tried restarting as well. No luck.
Streaming fresh podcast
Javipavi on 6/22/2018
Continually says stream currently offline and doesn’t allow me to watch it even though it was posted hours ago
Not letting me subscribe.
Blisabelle on 6/22/2018
Made a YouTube account, started to subscribe to the people I liked, suddenly it stopped letting me and gave me an error whenever I tried.
Latest Version Crashes My iPad
RevLloyd on 6/22/2018
I just updated to the latest version of this app and it crashes on my iPad Pro v9.3
Mean devs be nice
bosco lover on 6/22/2018
YouTube is deleting videos because they have “inappropriate” words like bath,nasty,poop,and etc.
YouTube is awesome
logang pauler #1 on 6/22/2018
This app is the best app ever made
Videos won't play just getting a something went wrong message
mmprfan09 on 6/22/2018
I watched a few videos until for some reason now I can't watch any I just keep getting the message that says something went wrong tap to retry and doesn't work please look into that and fix it
What Happened
Dellontra on 6/22/2018
This app you to work great, never a problem. It updated and now crashes and freezes and is almost unusable!
I like YouTube, but there are a few problems.
DubstepAssassin4 on 6/22/2018
One of the problems I am recently having is that every other video, YouTube crashes, turns my screen off for about 10 seconds, and takes me back to my lock screen on my IPad Air. Before this recent update, that had never occurred. I hope to see this fixed.

Good, but there’s an annoying glitch
mr.freezio on 6/22/2018
Overall a really good app, but for some reason when I’m watching a video, the app just randomly chooses to force pause/unpause for no reason. This is why I’m giving 4 stars.
Every update gets worse
a lot of bugs and frezzing on 6/22/2018
When I’m in the middle of watching a video it pauses by its self and when there’s an ad my tablet freezes and it’s very annoying and I just updated it
glorywaters on 6/22/2018
The app keeps freezing my iPad screen and it then restarts it.
4+ age group would be fine
Lurcruis on 6/22/2018
Can you please make this 4+ I’m not for I’m like triple that age But could you please make it 4 and up?
Youtube: You too can fix this!
YellowCapAlex on 6/22/2018
While Youtube is a stable platform, the sheer amount of issues, such as demonitization and pedo channels, have caused a never-ending downward spiral in the community. Only sign up if you want to rally against youtube crackhead developers.
Nothing beyond borderline okay
Shrek464 on 6/22/2018
1. Half of my recommendations are vids I’ve already watched or vids only from my subscriptions so might as well not have a home tab.
iPad app needs help
nameggggj on 6/22/2018
Watching videos is fine, and they load quick. But scrolling through the comments section on an iPad is choppy and slow. Sometimes while scrolling the whole thing just freezes.
What happened??
AMID1218 on 6/22/2018
Everything was good till this the last update... Now after every video finishes, it doesn’t load the video but audio is fine?? I have to rotate my phone just to get the picture working...please fix
Hikdbakxbeisbsiaowbdvdjaoab on 6/22/2018
The amount of ads during a video is pure bull manure. It is literally every 2 minutes now. It’s to the point where I’m probably not even going to use it without an ad blocker. That in return is going to make the content creators loose money. QUIT FORCING YOUR CRAP DOWN OUR THROATS. YouTube isn’t “you”tube anymore. It should be renamed to adtube. They don’t care about content creators nor the people who visit their site. They only care about how fat they can get their pocket. I can’t wait till something new and better that doesn’t sell out to ads to shut YouTube down. It’s cancer and even Facebook is following their crumbling foot steps. Needs to be boycotted
Blaze_Choate on 6/22/2018
The videos are autoplaying to the next video, mid-video. If I scroll back, so does it moments later. It seems to only with videos that were streamed.
Good but there’s one thing I don’t understand
linsanity43 on 6/22/2018
YouTube has always been one of my most used apps, until my mom put a 13 age restriction on my phone so now I can’t use YouTube. I don’t understand why YouTube is rated 17+ on App Store when everywhere else it is rated 13+. If you guys could change that, it would be great.
Bugs bugs bugs!!!!!
rs77777777 on 6/22/2018
Bugs bugs bugs. Gives out no internet connection for recommended videos when a video just started playing. Black playback screen when everything else is working fine. Even downloaded videos are giving error of no internet connection. The whole app will be in portrait mode but the gestures will be in landscape. Gestures are completely non-responsive many times. Like the swipe down, or next video. Play next video gestures was a bad idea.
picle3643 on 6/22/2018
Everytime i watch a vid it changes to a stream so i cant do anything
Video pictures
HarajukuLoversTour on 6/22/2018
I give this a 3 Star because I have made a knock knock joke on my YT channel and it revealed the funny part of the knock knock joke, which is annoying. But still, I still like Youtube, that’s all I have to say
chulietm on 6/22/2018
Never had problems with this app on my Android. Got an iPhone and I’m having problems. It’s funny cause you would think iphone is the best but idk.
Crashes on iphone 6 plus
Memekkckejeje on 6/22/2018
Idk if its my phone or the app, every time i pause a video and try to play again, it freezes i have to to back to home screen and back to the app for the video to play again
hollgranty on 6/22/2018
good app for going mobile but i know that sometimes we don’t have any money- so i think the “leave the app and music will keep playing in the background” really should be free.. just saying
ilovewafels on 6/22/2018
It is ok but it seems to Telaport me back to load of place 😔😔😔😔😔 Why why why why why why why help me read this pls thx
Disappointed but not surprised
anon1946372 on 6/21/2018
Here's a cool new feature: Livestream vods don't work anymore for more than 30 seconds. Thanks YouTube.
Sunthebun1 on 6/21/2018
It’s a fair app. However I don’t like the fact that I can’t watch some videos due to copyright reasons and are still on channels they have and should be removed from those channels. I would like to be able to see all videos that I like. Also the like button doesn’t stay highlighted on liked videos.
Great app small glitche
12444737373 on 6/21/2018
This is a great app nice and organized but there’s a small screen glitch that is hard to describe
The game play on this app is EXTREMELY TERRIBLE. Whenever I open I chest I never get scars like my friends, but instead I get Logan Paul.

LEXOUSY on 6/21/2018
Pre-recorded live streams are ending abruptly. This is very sad please fix this.🐣
No more adds!
Suppersweetkitty on 6/21/2018
The adds are annoying. Get rid of the adds YouTube!I also don’t like that sometimes you can’t skip them, like the Episode adds! I never can skip them, super inappropriate! Please get rid of it. Still love youtube
Give me my money
crap10238 on 6/21/2018
Honestly it was a really good app. Until this. I paid for YouTube red. Then i came back on and it was GONE. Like tf?! If i was paying 13 dollars a MONTH i should still be able to have it. And then i was looking at my purchase and it said get youtube premium for 15.99. WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUTUBE RED. I am NOT paying for ANYTHING on YouTube AGAIN. I feel as it is STUPID to have to make me pay more for something i have already paid for. You guys cant just take our money and them not give us what we paid for. How is that even fair. Them you guys come up with this premium Stuff. Like do u wanna pay for this?! P.s NEVER buy from Youtube😡🤬🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡🔥🔥🔥
I hate this new update
Supercharge401YT on 6/21/2018
The reason why I hate this update is because I can’t watch livestreams as videos because the streams keep saying that they are offline which all I want to do is watch the stream as a video without the stream saying that it is offline. The next change you make YouTube is to get rid of this and to get rid of what the stream chat said when the stream becomes a video. Lastly since I’m a YouTuber I don’t like this. I work for you YouTube or I’ll delete my channels.
Sorry I bothered😡
Jules617 on 6/21/2018
I’ve always thought the claims about censorship was overblown & a false flag. Guess you gotta give the middle aged chic some grace. Tada!! Have experienced it all week on UScrewed. The absolute blatant bias is sadly antithesis of the US bill of rights. I disturbs me that the 20 something’s think they know what is best for the deplorable, ignorant people. Caveat Emptor
Illuminator551 on 6/21/2018
Pretty good video platform if you’re a liberal.
Age restriction is needed for most vids
JoeyMT on 6/21/2018
Ok so first I like it a lot but WHY RHE HELL DID YOU AGE RESTRIC BANANA BOAT MEME AND NOT GELOX’S CHANNEL!? Otherwise your good but still so many things you need to see and why the hell do you need to sign in to report huh? That’s just some sad stuff dawg. Also it’s ok 👌🏾 Me like. But I’m literally 10 sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo AGE RESTRICT! Otherwise I love it it’s all good then!
Too many playlists
Me10410 on 6/21/2018
So I have complained when YouTube removed playlists in the past. Playlists were added back a while ago, but now there are way too many playlists. Many of the playlists on my channel consist of videos I haven’t even watched. I tried to remove 20 (or more) of these playlists, but I cannot even do that.
Oh my goodness this app is GORGEOUS, man!
Eat Pizza 123 on 6/21/2018
If there’s one word to describe YouTube, it would be MAGIC. There’s so many awesome videos of every kind you could watch, and I love to watch Annoying Orange, Asdfmovie, Vailskibum94, and a whole lot more on YouTube. Everyone should get YouTube. And I mean EVERYONE!!!
I use this all the time
Catfan_lol329 on 6/21/2018
It’s so fun to use when bored and I’m bored all the time Continue this great work
Live stream problems
fellow viewer on 6/21/2018
Every time you want to see a live stream from the past it brings you to the latest stream and this can happen if you watch a stream from 5 years ago, it will bring you to the newest video. Please take this into consideration when you are fixing bugs and updating. To: YouTube From: Fellow viewer
There is a glitch
fortnitemobilesucks101 on 6/21/2018
There is a glitch that continues to turn off and restart my iPad when I’m watching a video
Can’t unsubscribe!
dsm6 on 6/21/2018
Can’t unsubscribe from channels! Very frustrating. Please fix this!
kaela6352 on 6/21/2018
Literally flooded with adds since when are adds present 5 times in the middle of a 10 minute video it’s absolutely garbage while watching a live video every 30 seconds an add pops up
