I use this app to watch entertaining videos constantly. Over 2023 and into 2024, I have noticed changes with my favorite video app. These changes include application crashes, more buffering, and more ads. When I'm fully connected to WiFi and unlimited data, all Shorts and Stories as well as regular videos will freeze in place, not playing for hours at a time. When a video does manage to play, the YouTube application will crash and refuse to open back up until I've restarted my device.

They keep making it worse. Update; they just made it even worse. Doesn't go easily from portrait to landscape anymore. The button is so close to "skip ad" that you hit it when you don't want to. The organization is horrible and not intuitive, as it once was. I cha.nged my mind from buying a subscription because it is so unpleasant to use. I'm using YouTube less and less and less now. That's the upside of this poorly done app. 👍

Premium price went up $2. And the ads, come on! Two before the video, one more when it's over, and they're such long annoying ads for apps I don't care about. I see nothing relevant in a 3 minute ad of stupid game play. I can't restore my Premium now that it's $13.99. It's like you all decided to really make it hard to endure watching anything without paying for it automatically every month. I'm noticing also that I get the same "my mix" over and over. No variety.
