Google Brings Confusing Layout Update to YouTube

So today I watched some videos and I noticed that the Like and Dislike buttons are gone.It seems that it is an update that only allows you to like/dislike a video after watching the whole video.

 

 

A recent update by Google has made it seemingly impossible for some users to like or dislike Youtube videos. The answer is that from now on, you will only be able to like or dislike after you have watched the whole video! And even then the active thumbs up or thumbs down buttons have moved the to top of the finished video. Don’t like this change? You are not alone. Google seem to be making a habit of upsetting users these days with their seemingly arbitrary meddling. All in the name of making even more profits

It's not a bug, it's an undocumented feature!

The like and dislike buttons ARE the thumbs up and down buttons.

How's this horrible? I really don't mind tbh. Perhaps it's a counter to Addblock? People who want to like/dislike are forced to watch the entire video => include commercial in video => people forced to watch it= profit.

It is said, that civilised man seeks out good and intelligent company, so that through learned discourse he may rise above the savage and closer to God. Personally, however, I like to start the day with a total dickhead to remind me I'm best!

They're still there. And I can like/dislike whenever I want so far.

They just moved things around.

This post brought to you by a chronic lack of patience and sarcasm!

Also, the PSU tier list is a joke that nobody should actually take seriously

Everytime a big company makes an update people will find something to complain about

Or they just skip to the end of the video. And how is this going to do anything for adblock? Adblock will block all of the ads no matter where they occur.

The stone cannot know why the chisel cleaves it; the iron cannot know why the fire scorches it. When thy life is cleft and scorched, when death and despair leap at thee, beat not thy breast and curse thy evil fate, but thank the Builder for the trials that shape thee.

Quite hard to block an ad if it's part of a video. Watch big twitch live streams, the commercials are being streamed, so you can't block them.
