Love the variety. You can find damn near anything. Price for the premium subscription is worth it (to me) but only barely, hence the 3 stars. If it wasn't for maybe 3 of the premium features that are necessary for my style of use, I wouldn't bother. Maybe try a graded plan system, or an option for customers to select (bundle, maybe?) and pay for the options they need.

While I have loved YouTube for years, I am giving a 3 star rating for a couple of reasons. Primarily, I have an issue with the fact that I have now twice cancelled my Premium service. Then it just turns back on and each time, it hides where to cancel that. Secondly, in the last couple of weeks that I've been glued to a certain event, the app crashes, freezes, and is very temperamental. Scrolling function (especially for a disabled person) is impossible. A FF/RW of 10-30 seconds would be 👍.

Have used it every day for years. I have hearing issues, have to keep my volume at 100% and use captions as well. Within the past few months I've noticed whenever a video gets 'louder', YouTube will automatically lower the volume on my phone and I constantly have to raise my volume to accommodate for their volume normalizing that you don't have an option to turn off. super annoying, I want to just use a different app at this point so I can properly hear the videos I'm trying to watch. 🙄
