I would like to have a feature to turn off my screen when listening to music to save power and avoid accidentally pressing anything on screen whilst it's in my pocket. Additionally, there are bugs. Sometimes when switching between apps, returning to YouTube to watch a video, the playback will freeze, jitter and be extremely slow and unresponsive. Only pausing it for 3-5 minutes seems to fix it.
I am giving this app a one-star review because I pay for YouTube red and I have never had an issue with YouTube before but now I cannot listen to the music that I have downloaded and only what comes up that is not downloaded. Also there is no way for me to get in touch with YouTube. I used to love this app but I'm considering canceling my YouTube Red unless this issue can be resolved. I live in a no service area so I download music so I can listen to music when I don't have service and right now I can't do that even though I pay for your service. If somebody could get in touch with me I'm willing to change my review but this is ridiculous...
The "Play as you browse" feature shouldn't be implemented automatically, it is very annoying. Think about how much autoplay is hated, also think about data usage. It can be disabled in the settings but that's not the point. Most users wouldn't think to look there to disable it. The app in general isn't bad, I only wish there was a better way to bookmark videos, the "watch later" isn't enough.
Very Selfish of Google... On Samsung Galaxy Note8, Youtube app had an icon for videos to fit to full screen ratio.After update its gone.I have to watch videos on 16:9 aspect ratio.Neither Youtube's Pinch to Zoom feature works.
Out of every single update that had been released, you STILL can't close out of the app while listening to your music
【New: After Update– It's amazing that the old minimising feature was back for a few hours & now the crappy new one is back. Before I was thinking to give 2 or 3 stars by tomorrow if that feature stays. Amazingly many other apps that I use have the same feature that I'm asking for & it seems they copied youtube since they didn't had it before but now they have it & youtube doesn't. All this while many other things like the 'playlists option' that need to be fixed aren't fixed but you broke that wasn't broken】. It's 1 star coz '0' isn't an option. I can't believe how disgusting it is that despite not wanting that useless new minimising feature it's still being forced. I can't express how much I hate it. It's not like there wasn't anything to improve in the previous far better minimising feature but it's always better to leave it untouched if you can't make it better so at least you don't make it bad like it is now. Play & pause option wasn't a bad idea but the video didn't needed to be so small & on top of that cutting off the top & bottom parts of the video has made the whole idea of minimising in YouTube bad & now it's just useless. So many other features need to be added (like each channel should have a search box to search videos, playlists within that channel, the playlist needs an 'all' option along with the existing options of 'recent' & 'A-Z' coz it only shows 100 playlists which means for example if you have 110 playlists then not all but only first 100 will show & the rest 10 won't appear, & so on) & yet you ruined an already existing feature which was functioning well & was so much user-friendly. [I hate the new crappy minimising feature enough for me to never update this app on my main mobile & I probably will remove all the updates from that mobile just to avoid the site of that horrible feature.]
