Latest YouTube update brings back the annoying home indicator bug on iPads

Latest YouTube update brings back the annoying home indicator bug on iPads
It looks like Google isn't doing a good job when it comes to updating some of its major apps like YouTube. Last month, the Mountain View company released a new update for YouTube, which added support for the new iPads, but while doing that, it also included a bug where the home indicator overlap the navigation buttons at the bottom of the app.

One week after the issue was discovered, Google fixed it in another update that didn't bring any new features or improvements. Unfortunately, the bug has returned to the latest YouTube update that's just been released in the App Store, 9to5mac reports.

YouTube for iOS version 14.05 promises to “fix what needed fixing and squish some bugs,” but it also brings back the home indicator issue. If you're seeing this update on your iOS device, you might want to avoid it to prevent your tablet from being affected by the issue.

While we're expecting Google to address this issue quite fast, we can't help but wonder how are these updates tested before they're released to the general public. Probably not at all since this minor update wasn't supposed to introduce any new features, let alone an old bug.

Please did anyone lately experienced a kind of bug when you play a video on YouTube mobile.. the buttons on the video don't disappear by itself.. i have to tap the tiny X button at the bottom of the video .. which makes me fast forward the video to the end by mistake and rewind it trying to find where i was and when i find it i try to hit the tiny X button again to hide the other buttons overlying the video and i fast forward the video by mistake again and so on suffering till i close it and move to my laptop, such a small thing giving me a huge UX issue

If you have and use Android, Chromebook, Linux, or use Windows, then these issues are not there. I would say try using a real OS, but many of you think iOS is a real OS. Jokes on you.

I have had that issue since Sunday. I thought I was the only one having it.
