    For a basic youtube view, it works. As an application I would choose to use to watch you tube, it falls very short of any expectations.. I have found no way to effectively manage playlists. If I want a new playlist, I need to create them elsewhere, not here and then add things to them. There should also be an easy way FROM THE PLAYLIST to remove Videos. The only way I have found to remove videos from a playlist is to find the video in the youtuber's full list of videos and then "add to playlist" and uncheck the playlist it's currently in. A serious flaw. How can the app for Google TV, the owners own product, be the worst app for youtube out there?

    apk Crashes every time I go to Home page to browse other videos. This happens ever since YouTube forces the ad at the top of the home page. All my other App like Netflix and TED is working fine except this. Seems like YouTube on Android TV is not getting the TLC it deserves.

    скачать старую версию There are no decent context-menu items, such as 'Add to Playlist'. You have to start WATCHING before you can add the video to anything. What if you want to add a bunch of things to watch later - the first thing I WANTED to do when I got my Android TV. No doubt this is so you can watch even MORE of the ads - which I would guess are THREE TIMES more frequent on the Android TV. Google has turned into a greedy company who can't even produce a user-friendly app anymore. This app is an EMBARRASSMENT!

    2.06 06 apk Generally, if it works at the very moment, the YouTube App is quite OK to use. The UX of the YouTube app is a bit messy on my TV. The worst part is the un-stability: OFTEN (A FEW TIMES A DAY) I CAN SEARCH, BROWSE THE VIDEOS BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING THE SELECTED VIDEO (ALL OF THEM IF I CAN CONSIDER THAT) THEN IT JUST SAYS UNEXPECTED ERROR (IN MY LANGUAGE). The only way how to get out of this is the RESTART OF THE ENTIRE ANDROID (TV). The Force-Stop of just the YouTube App does not help!

    without ads So after the last update... My 4k tv can only watch videos in 720p... And I know the videos are available in higher qualities because other devices have the option.. Please fix this! Its bad enough that my 4k tv has NEVER had the option to watch 4k on YouTube.... But now it maxes at 720p!!! This is terrible! 720p on a 55"+ tv is poor. Tv is a Philips - 55PUT6400 I can easily watch 4k content from Netflix and amazon, so its nothing to do with Internet speeds

    2.07.02 Since 8.12.20 YT Videos only in 720p in an UHD TV (1 year old) This happens with all video with 60FPS. What the hell is google doing? Everything was fine and at the end of 2020 google want 720p max on an 4K UHD Android.TV? Hey google, do you want to sell more Chromecast sticks, or what is the reason?

    When I bought my TV, everything worked great. The updates to the YouTube app has made it very buggy. I open it up and get boxes with an X in each one where all the icons are and lots of videos are grayed out. I have to go the the app in settings and close it, then reopen it. It also flashes a black screen periodically for a fraction of a second. Sometimes I get a loading circle lasting forever and have to manually stop the app and restart it. Sometimes I have tor restart my TV. Keep in mind, this app worked perfectly when my TV was new.

    What have you been doing, Google? You've totally screwed up YouTube for Android TV. In the last couple of weeks, more often than not, it gets stuck with the spinner on the loading screen and never gets past that. I have to repeatedly kill it off (because, you know, it's too stupid to time out!) and go through it several times before it will actually get past that. And no, it's not a problem with my device, my internet connection or anything at my end. This was a change you made recently. And it's killed it. But clearly, you don't care. Why would you - what choice do I have?

    Latest version shows only corrupted lines in the video when trying to watch anything on my Sharp LC UE630X. Audio is ok, and when I exit the corrupted video, I get an app has stopped failure. Previous version was fine. Please fix. The issue started with version 2.11.06 and above. I've rolled it back to version 2.10.17, and it's working fine so far but I have no idea how long the server side will continue to allow its use.

    Most of the videos which have "4K" tag near them are running merely on 720p. Only 3 in 100 videos have really 4K support and being limited to 720p on a 55" screen is pure torment. What have you done to the app, it was working perfectly before?! This problem is going on for the last 3 days. Internet speed is not an issue, no problem is present in other apps on TV and Youtube apps on other devices, only on Youtube TV app.

    The sheer amount of advertisement before, during and after the videos on the last months became insane. It's worse than watching open TV. Also the app seems stuck in time, specially considering the interface between other devices and the app on the TV. Everything is very clunky and hard to navigate.

    Since the new update, All the 4k videos that used to run without buffer on 40 Mbps connection on my tv started to stuck at one point for eternity and doesn't play past that point. You are suggesting people to increase bandwidth instead of investigating the issue. My point is how is this possible that with the same connection on which they used to run smooth could not play anymore but only buffer. If you suggest double checking my connection speed, I have hit it several time and it is as same as it was before the issue appeard from your update. Please hold yourself responsible and accept that this is indeed the issue from your side. There is no option for half or zero star but take one for the same. And last but not least, I don't get the updated UI on my KD-SONY55A8G. Thanks.

    My Android TV supports the Thai language, other apps are able to search in Thai language. Youtube TV decides to say "screw you" to anyone who tries to search in anything other than English characters. Not being able to search in the languages that are supported on the device is stupid. Also, YouTube TV app used to be able to search using the build in keyboard. Changing to use a custom keyboard that copied an Apple TV 3 layout is a big step backwards. Actively looking for an alternative to this junk

    After being signed out of the app and not being able to sign in again, because it just wont let you,i reinstalled it on our android tv and we could sign in but there was no side panel ??? Why? Not user friendly anymore at all. Good one Youtube!! I then uninstalled and went back to an older version. Now have side panel back and full control with sign in. We will wait and see what happens for now and see if they come up with a new one that actually works.

    The "New" app is trash. Why did my subscriptions get moved all the way to the bottom of the screen? It now takes 7 clicks to get to the content I want instead of the 2 clicks it took before. There's no way to reorganize the left tray, which would fix that. No way to disable all of the trending, hot, etc garbage. Go back to the old layout please. 0/5

    The Good: Works great on a Sony Bravia 2015 model, everything works as expected. Runs Android 7. The Bad: Plays maybe 30 seconds of any video on other TVs running Android 6 then locks up. Sometimes you can get it to work if you restart, but it's inconsistent. Going into the app and removing all updates back to factory delivered version of the app and it works just fine, well until it gets re-updated. This is true on multiple devices from multiple manufactures using multiple different processors. Very frustrating that Google can't get it together to run their own app on their own platform. It's really pretty inexcusable, especially since Amazon can manage to deliver a more consistent YouTube experience on a FireTV using Silk (or Firefox for that matter) than Google can with their own app on their own platform. Trying to reproduce the same scenario using Chrome on AndroidTV gets you an unnavigatable mess.What ever was done in some update somewhere made this a useless app on many devices. Again let me clarify, we are talking about an app that came preinstalled on these devices and worked perfectly well and then stopped working when it got updated to newer versions.

    Maybe this seems minor, but it's hard to overstate how distracting the animated thumbnails are, and I can't believe there's no option to disable them. Every single time I highlight a video while browsing, it starts animating away from the static thumbnail that caught my attention, and I immediately wonder whether or not I'm even highlighting the video that I intended anymore. Animated thumbnails provide no value at all and only result in a more distracted browsing experience. Let me turn it off.

    It's a much worse experience then the mobile version, and it doesn't have to. With youtube premium the option to download and watch offline isn't available anyway. Video closes when you try to browse for another video, instead of minimizing. When you attempt to fast forward or rewind, the ui covers half of the screen whith "sugestions" that need not show up, you coul press down to see sugestions and what is next on the cue and up to show the player controls. Maybe I'm just a premium idiot.

    PLEASE PLEASE give us a way to add UNWATCHED VIDEOS to "Watch Later" or to other playlists via a long-press when a video is highlighted in the list... For now, the only way to achieve a similar effect is to start the video and then press Back button on the remote, so that the video is saved in the "History" playlist in order for us to remember to watch it sometime later... But that's only a compromise, a long route, an untidy trick... There should be a better official simple neat way to do this... Please!! (will give 5 stars if this gets implemented)

    UI needs work: - Pressing left should rewind like it does on YouTube TV and every other media app. Currently you have to press "up" first. 🤦‍♂️ - Thumbs up and down should be more accessible - "Add to Watch Later" should be more accessible - "Watch Later" listing should be the top item under "Library" not "History" (I live my life by Watch Later, I rarely want to go to the History)

    Hi Google Team, I am very disheartened to advise that why google can't fix their own Android TV app at all ? There are so many negative feedback on this Youtube for Android TV app. I am using this app since 1 year on my TV and it's very unstable, everytime i search a new content the app freezes while playing and doesn't work at all for that content. Android is your own OS, why can't you make compatible app for each Android versions ? I am sure it's not a bigger deal for your team. Please reply as there are so many other users waiting for the same answer. Please do something about it. Thank you.

    It's bad enough with the redesign of the Shield that I now am limited to 1 row and this is in favor of apps having their own rows on the home screen. YouTube is the worst with this. Not only does EVERY SINGLE UPDATE add new rows, no matter that you already turn them off, but every update adds them back. So every time this app updates I now have to go through the horrible menu system to find the stupid rows that YouTube has added to turn them off. Seriously, this is so annoying I may just uninstall YouTube. How about you change this to let the user enable these rows instead of forcing them on (opt-in)? Or how about you keep the settings the user has and stop re-enabling these rows when I clearly show I do not want them. Other than that, it's YouTube... it's fine. This is the only app that does this so I am giving it 1 star for being evil.

    Sorry, guys! But last improvements it is piece of 'art'. If you decide to remove almost all controls from video screen, please remove ALL controls except '...'! Why you remained 'CC' - how many people need it?! It would be much better to remain 'Like' button which is used enough often. I cannot understand why you decided to change default behavior of arrow buttons? It was very comfortable to use arrows for moving between controls and use '<>' to move video. Now default behavior duplicates each other... Also seems you decrease fonts of video title and video info (views/time). If you do not have good 100% vision it would be not so easy to read it :-( Sorry, dear developers did you test these improvements with real users?! :-(

    Great app that needs an overhaul of the menus and options of every screen, play next thumbnails are too invasive stay up too long in front of content. Also commenting is disabled this app what a stupid choice, the designers could learn a lot from the tablet version that was perfect for TV form factor. PS needs a mini screen to full screen feature, so you can search for what to watch next while watching.

    It feels like Android TV is not supported as well is not as well supported by Google as they support other platforms. Switching back to YouTube on my Roku, you get multiple user profiles on the YouTube app but only one on the Android TV version and we have 4 Google accounts in the household. The Icons for YouTube and YouTube TV are almost identical on Android TV so I have to make sure not to have them near each other or I'll accidentally open the wrong one. The YouTube TV icon on Roku is a nice black scheme as opposed to white on YouTube. I would think Google would give all the best and newest features to their own platform but it really feels like orphan-ware. I really hope Google starts to support Android TV more as I really prefer the interface to other boxes (Roku, Fire TV, etc.)

    With the latest update, YouTube Originals don't stream anymore on my Nvidia Shield TV. The Original videos (e.g. Cobra Kai, Sherwood) play for a few seconds with audio and blank screen, and then stops. Non-original regular YouTube videos play fine however. Clearing cache, clearing data, app reset, device reset -- nothing fixes the issue. Only way to fix the problem is to uninstall updates in the YouTube app, which is not what one should have to do ideally. Extremely disappointed! 👎👎👎

I wish I could configure the main bar as much as I can, as well as configure interests and topics I am (not) interested in.

    We're being forced to use this app for music playing. What a joke. There are no features in this app for playing music that work with the way most people play music. Music and Youtube videos are entirely different things. I don't want a liked song to be replaced by a 10 year old music video that has awful audio. I also don't want a video I liked that featured audio to be part of my music collection. Do people who listen to music actually work on this app? Google is really going downhill with these latest changes. And of course, being google, in a year or two they'll go a completely different direction because they can't get their act together. I'm guessing in 2021 they'll introduce Google Hangouts Music and the only way we can listen to music is if our friends like it too.

    The worst YouTube experience is the Android TV "app". For 3 years avc1 YouTube videos crash Mi Box 3 and Mi Box 4 setting them in boot loop, only when i unplug them can solve the problem. Same with my Nexus Player. Also crashes on menu or during ads on Shield PRO 2019. Problems started when native Android TV YouTube app replaced with this abomination web app. I am user of Android TV app since first version and Nexus Player. Please work with Nvidia and Xiaomi, your two official partners and ambassadors of ADTV. It is problem of Youtube and not their fault. I have contacted them in the past too. I have not ever experience crash on Netflix, Vimeo, HBO or other video app. I am using around 25 video apps none managed to crash whole device and setting them in boot loop! only the Google YouTube ADTV app on Google Android TV. Amazing! Third party Youtube Android TV app zero crash...

    After the update my Bang & Olufsen Android TV shows the "Unfortunately YouTube has stopped" Every time the App is opened, then I can press OK or report, if I press OK, then the pop-up disappeared and I can use the App but shortly after the pop-up is back. (it continues like this) Even when using the TV's tuner to watch TV the pop-up continues to occur.

    The app is OK as a pure player but not more. I.e. there's no way to remove watched videos from the watch later list. Also, when pausing a video the steering elements take up most of the screen, so it's impossible to get a close look at a detail of the video.

    Are you even doing testing? This has been broken for over a month, now. And to be clear, this is affecting customers who are PAYING for access to YT Premium and cannot use it. YouTube Originals show a black screen, while many 4k videos play for one second and then lock up or a black screen at times during playback. Needed to remove update to get access to YT Premium again.

    Used to work fine, however since I recently updated my Sony Bravia TV the UI has become really sluggish! Scrolling down my subscription list is now painfully slow and it takes literally minutes to reach the bottom of the list. Please fix this!

    When ever I open the Youtube App in my MiTV when the remote is connected, the internet goes down for the whole TV. But when I disconnect the remote, the internet starts working again. If I don't open the youtube app, everything works fine.

    Still can’t make videos as “not interested”, or block channels, or block topics. Shows vides in features that don’t appear in desktop web view or iPhone app so no way of saying that they’re not wanted either. All in all a very poor experience.

    Bought a brand new Sony Android TV kd85x8500g. On receiving the TV checked and found the youtube TV app working perfectly. Immediately after the setup the youtube app updated to the latest version. While trying to play any video the video freezes while the audio continues.

    Wow. Awful. Login goes to gray screen, requiring hard reboot to see anything tied to my account. Adding any new videos to saved playlists won't show up unless I exit the app and go back in. Rewinding anything results in a green screen. Terrible.

    It's great to have YouTube on the TV but with janky low framerates on videos and it being horrible to navigate finding videos I'd much rather just use the YouTube app on my phone and stream it to the tv as that provides a vastly better experience in every way.

    The application itself is Ok. I use the same account on my PC, Pixel phone and Android TV. But only on Android TV I'm getting "Popular news" recommendations only from Russian government propaganda changes Russia 24 and TASS. I never watch or watched them, I marked their videos as "Not interested", I blocked these accounts, but I'm still keep getting their videos as recommended. It's about and frustrating.
