Review from A Google User
The what's new section is not updated for the last 22 updates! Still needs support for playback time configuration in playlists & background playing. Needs support for Android Wear.
Nothing else to watch videos with. 06/26/17 All previous problems are fixed. 5/29/17 Problems with 144p. Video appears shrunken and doesn't fit the box and audio goes to $h!t. 240p is better but 360p is when it's "normal". Really bad for my metered connection. 480p seems to have disappeared
I enjoyed the option of being able to know or adjust which exact frame of the video I'll be on just like on desktop as well being able to adjust ny playlist from oldest to newest, from the original oldest to newest format of a playlist. All the cool abilities to see feeds in a video while watching one horizontally is gone, no new innovations, took steps BACKWARDS. Old innovative were new and exciting and very useful now it's cutting off the very legs it stands on.
Makes me angry to use this app. Give me a mass delete option for saved videos please. It should take seconds, not hours to clear my saved list. And the hitbox for remove video works only half the time. The other half it plays the video. When I open the app, why does it always try to auto play a video I've already watched? If I'm in public, it's a toss up as to which embarrassingly loud video is about to play to everyone nearby, so I have to rush to close the video that auto plays, every, single, time. Extremely infuriating. Fix this garbage please. I pay for Red.
Updated version of YouTube app doesn't seem to have any bugs or errors. But the advertising is obnoxious. Advertisements are making the YouTube app impossible to use. The offending advertisers are not only the ones you see interrupting videos, the advertisements for YouTube Red are my primary complaint. I can't justify running this app if the whole screen will suddenly be something other than the video I'm watching.
So for a while now, everytime I watch some gameplay videos, my videos will constantly freeze and I just hear audio. There's no way for me to actually fix it, only way I've figured out is skip around the video but everytime I do that it freezes again after 2 seconds. Honestly stop breaking this app with the updates already.
YouTube used to be great, not too many AD's and never had a option for background play which was fine. Now when they add what people have asked for YEARS, they want $10 and give you a bunch of garbage shows. Well I'm done with dealing with it, and I'm not paying for it. I'll just use my laptop, and I know they have to make money but you don't need a AD on every video you SOB
A new design makes it easier to use YouTube:
• Find your watch history, uploads, purchases, and playlists in the new Library tab
• Reach tabs more easily and switch between them from any screen
• See more videos with a smaller navigation bar
• Switch accounts, view notifications, and manage settings by tapping your avatar
The new design will gradually be available to everyone.
