Being a Premium subscriber, I had been very happy with the YouTube experience. In particular, the option to play immediately vs add to queue when casting to a Chromecast. That feature disappeared a few weeks ago and has not returned. I figured it had to be a bug since it was a significant step back in user experience but now I'm beginning to wonder if it was intentional and the ones in charge of UX are simply incompetent.

Update: It's working better today, thankfully. We'll see how goes. Recently the YouTube app for Roku has become almost useless for me. When scrolling through my history or a private playlist, watch a video, & then try to go back to the list it completley loses your place and the screen automatically goes back to the top. Then you have to scroll all the way down again every single time. It's extremely frustrating. I've been a consistent user but if this isn't fixed i will be cancelling Premium.

YouTube is so garbage nowadays. You'd think that after they hiked the prices up for Premium members, that it would work seamlessly. Instead, there's a ton of bugs - network errors when I've got a great Internet connection and the inability to click on a specific part in a video, to name a few. Also, the app buffers or crashes altogether CONSTANTLY! I've done all the updates, uninstalled, then reinstalled, everything. If I'm watching videos, and it crashes, it won't even save them to my history.
