YouTube Android app update with some problems

By Peter Chubb - Oct 1, 2014

It was yesterday when there was a YouTube Android update, but what was said to come with several bug fixes and stability improvements, actually created some other problems. This does not involve the iOS version of the YouTube app, which seems a surprise considering the bad press iOS 8 has had over the past two weeks.

Some Android users are not happy and have taken to the Google Play Store to share their frustration. One user said that the update did not work on his range of Nexus devices, all of which show the very same message, “The App had stopped”. The way the guy got around this issue was to revert back to the previous version.

Other users are seeing gray boxes and bars over almost every video, along with the app closing after 30 seconds. This was an issue before the latest update, so YouTube’s claim of fixing the bugs seems to be untrue.

There is also a tweet below, which kind of sums up the current YouTube problems for Android users.
