The new YouTube app not as useful for video discovery

I loved the older version of the app. The recommended section that was separated in section that would evolve depending on the content I watched was really useful and made me discover very interesting new channel. I never watched as much YouTube before I got my Chromecast with Google TV.

The new app just is not as useful. I haven't had even one good suggestion since. That endless scrolling does not help at all. 

My questions: Can the current version be configured to have the same interface as the older one? If not, is there any way to reinstall the old version of the YouTube app?

Hey there JSGasse,

I am sorry about the late response, thank you for being patient! I understand how you feel when you get used and comfortable with a certain app, then it changes the way it works, and I don't like it as much. At the moment, there isn't a way to roll back the versions of the apps on Google TV, so what I recommend is that you submit feedback via Google TV to let Google know about the experience you are having.


I'm sorry I couldn't have been more helpful, but if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
Jeran
