Good, but needs a lot of improvements

Alexander Mayeux

I use this app all the time and for the most part it works really well! The videos load up fairly quickly and they can be watched without any trouble when watching in a high resolution. And in its simplest form, that’s it! It works well! However, there are some bugs and some flaws that need to be fixed. While the videos are watchable, at times it will freeze and the app will just crash. This can get really annoying when you’re watching something and then all of a sudden it just crashes on you. Thankfully, once you head back into the app, it will let you start off from where you were. But there is one last flaw that really should be fixed, connecting to the TV. While videos do work well on the TV, half of the time I’ll be watching a video, and then all of a sudden I may accidentally tap the icon to connect to the TV and then it will just connect. You can exit out of it, but sometimes I won’t notice and it will connect to my TV without me even knowing. And I feel like when you tap on the icon, it should say “Are you sure that you want to connect to this TV?” And then you could either tap Yes or No, instead of it just automatically connecting with very little time to cancel the operation. Other than these though, the app isn’t all that bad and I would recommend it, as long as the flaws don’t mess with your time watching videos, then it is a passable app.

What’s Going On?

I don’t know if my phone hasn’t updated it until now or if this is just now happening but when I click to listen to my music playlist it shows the videos in the order they’re usually in when not on shuffle like it used to. But when I click the shuffle button to start it shows the order that it’s shuffled so that I know what the next song will be. There’s no problem with that but the irritating part is that when I find the song I want to listen to and turn the shuffle off, it doesn’t revert back to playing in order like it used to. It continues to play that song and then play the next song on the shuffle list, not on the next song that would normally play if it wasn’t on shuffle.

Now, I don’t mind listening to my music on shuffle, that’s the whole point of shuffle, but I have a rather large playlist for songs and sometimes I’m looking for a specific group of songs that are next to each other in the playlist. Because of my having a large playlist, I used the shuffle feature to find the songs I want and then turn the shuffle off to listen in the normal order rather than scrolling through hundreds of songs to find the right ones. The feature of it reverting back after clicking to turn the shuffle off is helpful when I’m looking for specific songs but it’s hard to do that now that shuffle no longer does that.

Needs a new "Tell us why" option

I think I MIGHT have watched a gaming livestream ONCE. Now YouTube's algorithms seem to think that gaming livestreams are my favorite thing in the world. It doesn't matter how many times I click "not interested" to remove them from my feed, every time I refresh I have 10-12 new GTA V, World of Warcraft, and other random gaming livestreams in my feed. If I click the "tell us why" option, I have three options: already watched the video; don't like the video; not interested in the channel. Any of those options only seem to suggest to the algorithm that I just want to watch gaming livestreams from a DIFFERENT channel. No. I. Do. Not. Want. To. Watch. ANY. Gaming. Livestreams. If I ever decide that I do, I know how to type, "please show me a gaming livestream from some random person I don't care about" in the search bar. The video feed is already weak and biased towards view numbers on this app. But the constant livestreams in my feed that I couldn't possibly care less about have found a way to make it even worse. How about putting some content from channels I actually subscribe to in my feed? Crazy, I know. I mean, literally every other video in my feed is a GTA V livestream. I don't see how it benefits your business model to constantly "suggest" videos I have absolutely NO intention of watching or generating ad revenue for.
