What to do if YouTube crashes in 2022 (3 actions)

If YouTube bugs in 2022, here are the 3 actions to follow in order to understand and solve the YouTube bug :

1. Check if YouTube bugs with these 3 websites (with urls)

2. Check the quality of your internet connection (Wifi or 4G)

3. Uninstall and reinstall the YouTube mobile application (iPhone or Android)

In this detailed guide, let's look at the different ways to see if YouTube is down and how to fix YouTube bugs (with links and screenshots) :


1. Check if YouTube bugs with these 3 websites (with urls)

Step one: check that the fault or bug does not originate from YouTube itself.

Sometimes, even if it is rare, the servers of social networks (YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat...) are down.

I suggest you visit 3 sites Internet that centralize and detect YouTube outages through users:


A. Go to the Downdetector website under YouTube (+link)




The first site that detects YouTube crashes and bugs is Downdetector.

Go directly to the Downdetector website YouTube" section at the following url:


On this page you will see whether current user reports indicate a problem or not on YouTube in 2022.

You will also see all YouTube outages reported in the last 24 hours in the form of a graph.

This is where you can also report if you have a problemThe purpose of this is to warn other YouTube users (like you) of any bugs or malfunctions on YouTube.


B. Also go to the Istheservicedown website under YouTube (+link)




Second site to visit in case of a YouTube bug: Istheservicedown.

Go directly to the following url to see if there is a problem with YouTube:


Once you open the Waze page, you will also see if YouTube is currently experiencing problems.

And a graph of problems on YouTube over the last 24 hours.

Both services are based on YouTube users' reports and declarations of bugs or failures.


C. Go to and search for "YouTube down" or "YouTube down




Third site to check if YouTube is down at the server level:

Open your internet browser: Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox...

Go to Twitter's website at the "Explore" url :


or open your Twitter mobile application on iPhone (iOS) or Android.


Then search for the keywords 'YouTube down', 'YouTube down', or#YouTubeDown "To see if other users are also complaining about YouTube problems on Twitter.

Follow up with a visit to the official YouTube Twitter profile:

It is possible that YouTube will report a possible failure or bug.

With the help of these 3 different sites, you will have a good idea if the bug is related to YouTube directly or if it is a problem on your iPhone (or Android).

If you notice that other YouTube users are having problems, there is only one solution: wait for YouTube to fix its outage.

If no one else is having problems on Twitter, then you should solve the YouTube bug on your iPhone or Android.

Let's look at other solutions to solve a YouTube bug in 2022:


2. Check the quality of your internet connection (Wifi or 4G)

One of the bugs sometimes encountered on YouTubeIf you have a problem with your iPhone or Android, it is the lack of an internet connection (or a bad connection).

Think about check that you are connected to the internet via your Wifi or 4G connection: your Wifi or mobile data (4G) must be activated.

Try each of the possible connections: first Wifi only, then 4G only.

Once connected to the internet, check the quality of your connection by going to test your flow on the Degrouptest website for example: 


Click on "Launch the speedtest, activate geolocation and look at the results of the flow test.

If the speed is several MB per second, then the result is good. You don't have to worry about the internet connection.

If the speed is low or close to 0, then your internet connection has a problem.

In this case, switch between Wifi and 4G connection (and vice versa). Then test the flow again.

Do not hesitate to restart or unplug/plug the power supply of your internet box.

In short, you need a good internet connection to access YouTube!

If the internet connection is good and YouTube still crashes, then move on to the next step:


3. Uninstall and reinstall the YouTube mobile application (iPhone or Android)




Another solution to test: uninstall and reinstall the YouTube application on your phone.

The method works on iPhone (iOS) and Android Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, Realme...

- On iPhoneTo uninstall YouTube: press and hold theYouTube application > Uninstall.

- On AndroidTo uninstall YouTube: press and hold the YouTube > Uninstall.

Once the YouTube application is uninstalled, your phone is cleaned of all YouTube data such as the cache.

This can be useful in solving the YouTube bug.

Then install the YouTube application again :




For install the YouTube application in 2022 :

  • On iPhone / iOS: go to the App Store > Search for YouTube > Install
  • On Android Go to your Google Play Store > Search for YouTube > Install

Then log in to your YouTube account with your phone number or email.

Validate with the code reception by SMS.

Normally the YouTube 2022 bug is solved!

You need to have access to all the features of Twitter.

If this is not the case, then the YouTube failure must be located at the global level and under the responsibility of Google.

Please wait until YouTube fixes the bug! :/
