Buggy as all hell. I pay for youtube premium for no ads and the ability to use queues since I travel alot. Half the time, queues crash the app. If you accidentally go to the next video in the queue and then click to go back, it takes you all the way back to the beginning of the video (doesn't do this outside of queue). Privacy settings are a mess. You now have to set every individual Playlist as private instead of being able to make them all private by default (which you used to be able to do).

I'm having the same issue as Tony, and apparently 500 some odd others "The application worked okay, has had a few bugs here and there, but the last update caused it to be unusable. The phone heats up, drains the battery, and the video gets choppy until it just crashes. I have the premium subscription, and the content I watch is downloaded, so it's not ads or a buffering issue. If this continues, I'm not paying for the subscription."

Been using for years as a premium member, but for the last few days the app has randomly shut down. I'll be listening to it in the background with the screen off, and the audio dies. I open the app, and it completely restarts. I go to my recently watched history, but when I select the same video I was just listening to, it starts from the very beginning with no saved progress. It's done this more than 30 times, so I'm uninstalling and reinstalling , with hopes that that will fix the issue.
