User-friendly and *free. A big variety of videos made by everyday people; people-to-people info exchange. The majority of videos are useful content pertaining to search terms. The video content can be applied to: career, home-life, entertainment, education, how-to, and much more. Interface is easy navigation, creating a user-friendly experience. *Free/paid subscription, but I just skip/or deal with ads, very short or "skip" option.

This app is awful now...what made this app great have been removed and all the new features make it close to un-useable. When I cast to my TV , I can't disconnect later without having to hard boot my phone. The resizing & landscape switching is so messed up, but I can't even play vids in the background anymore. I am a premium subscriber! Please get rid of the floating icons rid of in shorts--so distracting. And why do I have to click the 'x' multiple times to remove the floating controls?! awful

The app is great!! Notifictions and videos travel very fast, and security is amazing! However recently Ive encountered a few issues. 1. Information like the title and description of videos sometimes doesnt get uploaded. I know I'm not the only one having this problem as multiple people that I am subscribed too have had this issue. 2. I don't know If I'm the only one having this problem but for some reason the app WILL NOT go back into landscape mode and is stuck in portrait. Please help YouTube!
