YouTube to disable video recommendations if watch history is turned off

YouTube has rolled out a new update that addresses a common annoyance for users. It now allows individuals to disable video recommendations on their home feed, even if their watch history is turned off. In the past, YouTube's home feed would be populated with recommended videos based on a user's watch history settings, creating a cluttered appearance. With this update, users can opt for a cleaner homepage by turning off their watch history. 

The simplified homepage will feature just the search bar and a left-hand guide menu with shortcuts to Subscriptions, Shorts, and Library. Google, YouTube's parent company, aims to offer a more streamlined experience for those who prefer searching rather than relying on recommendations. These changes will be implemented gradually over the next few months.

In addition to this update, some iOS users have reported buffering issues while watching live content on YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime Channels. YouTube has acknowledged the problem and is actively working on a solution. This issue seems to be specific to iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads, with content freezing during playback. 

Fortunately, the problem does not appear to affect users watching the same content on Android devices, TVs, or other platforms. Further updates from YouTube are expected as they work to resolve this buffering issue for iOS users.
