YouTube is my favorite website ever! I've been using it for years and never I had any problems. Now, there is a problem. The play and skip buttons. When they got updated, it's been acting up on my phone. When I play a video, the button shows the play symbol not the pause symbol and sometimes the skip buttons don't work. With the old version, I didn't have any troubles at all. Really to be honest, the previous play and skip buttons were better than the ones we have now.

The mini player is so nice with Premium! That said, I still might switch because the latest version or two of the app have been nightmarish. The app force closes- some days not at all, and some days constant (like every time I open anything in the background.) The mini player has been glitching (disappearing when I touch it,) and overall I've just spent way too much time in the past month or so messing with the controls in the app when all I want to do is watch or listen to my playlists.

Probably the app I use the most on my phone. Lately (as in a lot) I will accidentally click on another video while I'm already watching or listening to one. Then I have to go back to my history to find the original video again (and try to find the spot I was at). It would be great to have a prompt that asks if you really want to switch to the next video to avoid clicking on a video you didn't care to watch and limit interruptions.
