During this week, YouTube has also removed ads from another 2 million videos and 50,000 channels to stop those channels from getting profit from disturbing content.

Besides, phones that have limited RAM and older processors may not be powerful enough to handle multiple actions at once and will painfully slow down annoying most users to the core. Even recently, the autocomplete search result feature of YouTube was suggesting disturbing search terms to users, about that YouTube apologized. First coming to the voice recording lock feature, as the name suggests, with this feature you can actually lock the voice recording so you don't need to record a voice message without holding the button down.

When it's down, users can tap the send button which ends the recording and sends the message. "Want to easily record long Voice Messages?" According to WABetaInfo, the in-app YouTube video feature on WhatsApp is now disabled, and might be activated by later from the servers.
