I'm not sure why, but when I change the playback speed on one video and then start another, the ads play in that same speed before the video starts. For example, if I watch a video on 1.5x speed and start another video, the ads also play on 1.5x speed as well. Also, when you slide your finger to minimize the video screen, the screen gets stuck and won't move unless you touch the screen again. Both of these issues seem to happen on the mobile version only.

The app said I was in restricted mode even though I'm not, and I cant even view my settings because when I click on my profile to bring up the menu that lets me access settings, nothing happens unless I hold it for a few seconds, then a menu pops up to change accounts. This is inconsistent because usually what I just mentioned happens, but sometimes it works just like normal.

There has been a weird bug in your code. Sometimes I can't see the video image content. The video screen rectangle is all black. Even after I click on another video it stays all black. I am able to see the comments and I am able to see the recomendation algorithm suggestions, and even to control the video( pause, play and double tap for forward and backwards). Opinion: Google has a complex job, we all agree. But strict quality standards has to be maintained like it's a religion.
