The newest update on feb 16 2024 is so jacked that i cannot find any of my playlists or subscriptions. Furthermore, layout for being able to share, like or comment on a video is so not user friendly. Happened to find it accidentally while tapping around my screen trying to figure out where the description & chapters were. Never did find the description for the video I was watching. There is something majorly wrong with this update as my YouTube was working just fine before yesterday.

This is the default app for watching videos and it's good at what it does. My main issues are (1) the inability to hide/customize inappropriate ads. I see a ton of Temu underwear ads that just make me uncomfortable. I don't even mind the ads, but anything else is better. (2) Video ads are getting a little too long. 30 seconds or more of ads is about where I start to not like watching videos anymore.

YouTube is the worst. The people who designed the interface are idiots. It continually redirects you to shorts and other trash. You can watch a video, shut down the app, then you have to click through multiple screens to get back to what you were watching before. When you search videos, it will consistently bring up videos that have nothing to do with your search terms but are based on your Google ads profile. It's awful for podcasts. Awful for long form video. Easiest to use for creators.
