YouTube activity not updating in Watch History

Jump to solution

Starting this week, videos I've watched using the YouTube channel on my Roku Ultra aren't showing up in my Watch History. This is causing issues with my "Recently Uploaded" and "Recommended" feeds as videos I've seen aren't being cleared from those lists. I'm not sure if this is an issue on Roku's side or Google's. It does appear that the YouTube channel for Roku has been updated recently, so that may have broken it.

Is anyone else having this issue, or does anyone have a fix?

Thanks for the post.

If you are experiencing issues within the YouTube channel, you'll want to contact YouTube support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Not helpful. The YouTube site HAS a clickable element that removes Watch Later videos but it is missing on the Roku Youtube channel page. Please return it so we can clear out our Watch Later videos. Than k You.
