It's a pretty good app. The only complaint I have is that autoplay continues to be on even though I have it switched to "off" in the settings. Only does this on my phone. Not sure what's up with that, it's a rather annoying feature. Autoplay is probably the worst idea for video streaming platforms in general. Please fix this somehow, or if there is a fix that would be awesome to know.

would you guys please get rid of the auto replay feature on your shorts?! I mean don't even give the option. It's pointless, especially when one can just swipe down to see it again, and is also annoying. lol. Oh yea, would be nice to not have to scroll down from the top of channel subscription list every single time after pressing back button. The algorithm for suggestions on home page has to be tweaked. 90% of videos shown are based on the very most recent video I last watched.

After the android 13 update I can't play videos without actually having the video on the screen (the play/pause button has disappeared from the pull down menu). all of the videos I watch are videos that I can listen to without visuals while I'm playing a game or doing work. It's hard to do either of those things when there's a video thumbnail taking up a portion of my screen. The genre/topic filter at the top of the home page are also gone. When these features return, it'll be 4 or 5 stars.
