Why did youtube move comments on iPhone? They were fine the way they were. Is that what the world's coming to? People are too lazy to scroll down for comments?

the accessibility on the youtube app is a little bit tricky
when I go to the suscribes tap and it has 3 taps on the top.
like unwatch, already watched and live.
and when using voiceover. we can not find this 3 taps.
and we have to turn on screen recognition on to find it.

Hi Charlene. if you want to share a video in the YouTube app, do the following. One, find and double tap the collapse video button. two, locate the title of the video you are currently watching. three, using one finger, swipe down on the videos title until you reach the share menu and double tap. I know this is kind of a roundabout way of Sharing videos, but it worked.

Is there a way to rearrange videos in a playlist? YouTube help says you can do this, but I haven’t found a way using voiceover. Any help?

I tried everything I could think of in both the YouTube app and in Safari and I can’t get anything to work. Do you have access to a computer? At this point, I’m thinking that’s the only way to do it. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. Hope someone else can figure it out.

Let's say someone named Jack Johnson left a comment in the comment section. Scroll onto his name and VoiceOver will say Jack Johnson, Jack Johnson. The repeating of usernames is unnecessary and annoying.
