Here’s a round up of product improvements and bug fixes from this month. Reminder: these are just desktop updates from the team responsible for the youtube.com desktop experience (though they don’t work on absolutely everything – for example other teams are responsible for YouTube Studio, monetization features, recommendations, etc.)

Improvements:
  • There’s a new mini version of the left hand navigation guide that will show when you resize your browser window to a smaller size! This makes it easier to navigate to core YouTube pages, even with a smaller screen or browser.




  • When you’re watching videos in a playlist (such as "watch later") and you navigate away from the video, we now automatically activate the miniplayer. This allows you to navigate the site and keep watching videos at the same time! Note: when you're watching any video not in a playlist, you'll need to manually launch the miniplayer using the button.


Fixes:  

  • Previously, if you tried to watch a live video in a playlist, the chat messages were far down on the page – so we fixed that and now live chat is above the playlist!

  • For a few hours, some people couldn’t search or navigate between YouTube pages correctly – so we fixed that!

  • When a video was at the end of the row you couldn't click the "Watch Later" button, so we fixed that!

  • The scrollbar was appearing while in full screen for some people – so we fixed that!

  • After clicking on the miniplayer, sometimes it would appear blank, instead of displaying the video – so we fixed that! We also fixed the miniplayer tooltips, which weren’t always displaying correctly.
  • Accessibility fixes! We fixed the keyboard focus so you can more easily navigate the left hand navigation guide after watching a video. And in some cases, keyboard focus would skip videos in a playlist, so we fixed that too!

Your "mini navigation guide" is broken, even at full screen it keeps displaying, then at other times is does not display at all.
Please remove it, it does nothing for the usability of the site and is little more than an annoyance.

Thank you.

Can we turn OFF the mini player? It's annoying. Also annoying is that there is no longer a simple button to click on to add a video to the watch later list.

While i think the new mini player is great, i am having an issue where i cannot reply to comments on any video's (i'm on a desktop using Win 7 btw). All i see is a spinning wheel. Does any one else have this issue and is this related to this new mini navigation guide perhaps? UPDATE May 06th 2019: I can finally leave comments on videos. Thanks for fixing it!
