    The current design is pissing me off.

    Slide and close was the only good thing about the app.

    You can download YouTube Vanced which is a modified version of the original YouTube app. It allows to switch to the old design (and it has a dark theme).

    The first one was the only good one. There's a nice German word for that which I can't translate.

    Also, look into NewPipe.

    @Floydian @bigus-dickus you slide the little tab that come when you slide down the video. Then you close it. I agree with the shit design, you can't use the back button to go back from the vids you watched.

    Slide and close is still kinda there.
    It's just slide down + swipe down , instead of slide down swipe sideways. And one will get used to it eventually.
    The actual Devil is the BACK BUTTON.
    Accidentally click on some other thumbnail while watching a video 🙂You can't go back now 😑.
    Go to library,then find the video in watch history. 😑
    Now it would start from the beginning. ,Even the ad will play again 🙂.
    So watch the ad again, seek to the exact point you left it. >>10sec << 10sec. Ok finaly at the correct point.

    This is pure shit !
    I think it's because they want us to watch the ad again. 😑

    @ceee Slide down + swipe down...

    What the actual fuck!!!!

    That worked. What shitty UX by Google.

    Fuckers didn't even have a on-boarding tutorial for that.

    @Floydian yeah there should have been a tutorial.
    I randomly tried swiping everywhere in frustration and had a Eureka moment 🤣

    Fuck man. I was wondering why I was pressing back button on the video while it wasn't going back to previous video. Fuck. Now I know why. It was an old habit. I almost forgot there used be a back feature.

    Why the fuck google wants to break my habit loop. 👿

    If you're rooted and have xposed:

    YouTube 13.24.57 is still adfree when using "Youtube adaway" xposed module. Pair it with "YouTube background playback" xposed module and enable dark theme and it works great.

    Add installing NewPipe for when you want to download videos from YouTube (without captions at the moment sadly) and you have a perfect ad free, download optional YouTube experience with background playback!
