YouTube is working fine on my 3 Roku Streaming Stick 3600R (2016) devices.

I'll try to check my 2 Roku Streaming Stick 3800R (2017) devices later.

It seems it would be useful for folks to share what model devices they're having problems with.  I have a Roku Premier and am having no problems with the Youtube app.

I have a 50" JVC Roku TV, YouTube buffers if I hit pause and never recovers even though my internet connection is great. I have tried resetting and everything else nothing fixes the issue.

I also have a Roku stick on another TV that had YouTube buffering issues. When I reset the stick it solved all the issues.

You need to contact Google. They own YouTube and provide the YT channel for Roku devices. Roku themselves have no control over it.

For the record, YT is working fine on my Ultra 4800, which is the only player I've tested it on. The YouTube version as reported within the channel under Settings/App Version is web_20210112_00_RC00. The version number listed on the Roku home screen (hit * to see the version) is 1.0 build 93000123

Cannot open YouTube on my Roku. I’ve tried removing channel. I’ve tried restarting my Roku?
