Use this app all the time, more than Netflix, Hulu, or any other service. But suddenly my phone will unlink from my chromecast and I'll lose my whole queue which started recently and is very sporadic. On top of that I no longer have the option to change playback speed, which is a very important feature for me when watching educational videos. Very unhappy with the changes that are happening and the problems I've been experiencing and I can't even put all my issues in 1 review for character limit

First of all, I experience frequent crashes. It starts to lag, then it crashes to the homescreen. Also, the resolution switcher used to be great. Now I need to do extra taps to get to where I need to go for actual high quality, not 480p, but 1440p. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I prefer the old layout. I also experience frequent lagging and crashes, despite the fact that I have a snapdragon 888.

A great app, but it just can't stay connected to a TV. Make sure you save any queue of videos to a playlist, because your phone will disconnect from the TV and when you try to reconnect, your queue gets wiped out. It is disappointing that this can't/won't get fixed, I've been using this app for probably 5 years and the bug remains. I actually think it is worse than ever now. At this point I can't even keep the same queue on my phone as in my TV for a full fifteen minutes.
