With the most recent version of the YouTube iOS app, I am experiencing some new bugs and wanted to see if anybody else was having similar issues. The biggest one is that I can’t seem to minimize the video player when I am done watching a video. VoiceOver announces the button to minimize the player but double tapping it does nothing. I have to disengage voiceover and then single swipe from near the top of the screen downward which is the normal iOS gesture to minimize the player. The second one is, when I’m on the home tab where it shows suggested videos, voiceover reads aloud the title of each video twice, along with a bunch of other information that isn’t helpful. It makes scrolling through this area of the app very cumbersome. Finally, screen formatting seems to get really messed up if you swipe left and right to read through the comments under a video. I have a little bit of vision and I can see that as I am swiping through the comments, the entire display is shifting upward, leaving a big black void at the bottom of the screen. If I go too far, the entire screen is black and the only way I can get functionality back is to restart the app.
