It used to be, when in fullscreen, you could swipe from the top (relative to a horizontal phone) down to go back to non-fullscreen, and up to see other suggested videos. Now, doing either one just plays another video, and even if you swipe back, you lose your place. YouTube replacing actual useful features just trying to make yet more ways to watch whatever content they think you want, as if there was someone out there who still didn't have enough ways to watch algorithmic content

I now spend more time watching ads than content. Ok, if I'm honest, not really, but it feels like it now. The thing I hate most is when a minute long string of unskippable ads pops up saying it saves you from watching ads for a while, but then 10 minutes another minute (or longer) string of ads pops up. I used to like YouTube, and I tolerated the ads (yes, I understand content creators need paid, and I was ok with that), but now there's just way too many ads to the point it ruins content.
