Needs a huge update

It doesn’t go into the dynamic island when you swipe up to go home to watch a video it just automatically pauses the video. It would be really cool if we could get diamond support for devices that supported or just in general when you swipe home if your phone does not have dynamic island, it should just keep playing the video on the lock screen as well as when you’re on the home screen and then you can go back into it then pause it whenever you want or maybe make an option where there’s like a little dot that appears at the top of the screen with the video playing and then you tap that to go back to the video that’s playing, but it continues to play while you swipe out of it whether you had dynamic or not you could just put a little at the top of the screen or a little viewing area like dynamic island that shows up showing your video that still playing that would be cool

YT has NOT improved with age

Love the concept & the content; HATE the platform!
As YT has gotten more popular, it has gotten SO much worse! First, ads are out of control! As another said, I understand that a company must make money, but seriously? Ads are forced upon creators even when they do not wish to monetize & the amount of ads are ridiculous! We, the viewers, are bombarded with many more ads than TV uses. And the ads are for things in which I have ZERO interest (hint: STOP with the weight loss ads!). You can also eliminate any ad over 1 minute! If I want to know THAT much about anything, I’ll search for a video! Sadly, it has become all about the $.
Now for the serious stuff (as opposed to the merely annoying). Creators must suffer with having their videos highjacked by ads AND stalkers! SO many creators have had death threats & stalking IRL & many other serious issues & YT does nothing! They do not take this seriously.
And big tech doesn’t make it easy to find out how to complain directly to them about anything. They hide in plain sight.
It’s such a shame that there really isn’t a viable alternative…yet. Remember that YT: yet.

We need wayyy less censorship

I love this app because it's a place that you can find pretty much anything and see how cool people are. But even awesome things have serious problems. I feel like the more people who protest these things the more likely we'll be heard. Honestly this might not even be true which shows how sad our culture is rn but we need to try. Ok, venting time. Like the other reviews I think it's unfair to take down a video because it makes you uncomfortable. And as another of the reviews said we are already trying to make our country more diverse, more open to opinions. But disregarding one because you don't like it means you aren't being fair. It means you're saying we don't matter. Your consumers don't matter. We have freedom of speech for a reason. We have a right to say what we want. In certain circumstances I think censorship is needed but only when it would actually hurt someone and you don't need to take the video down. You could just tag it saying "hey this video is probably not great for children". Yk? I just think it's being selfish and unfair to refuse to let someone share their opinions when it's a human right.
