Multiple reports have surfaced that the latest Roku OS update caused the YouTube TV app to freeze after several minutes of use. In a tweet spotted by Gizmodo, an official YouTube support account said Google is aware of the issue and is working on a quick fix.
At the moment, it is not clear whether the bug is the latest development in the ongoing feud between Google and Roku. In April, the two began publicly accusing each other of trying to renegotiate their distribution deal in bad faith.
When contacted with Google regarding this problem, the company apologized and said it was working on fixing it and would release an update for that soon.
9to5Google notes that what makes the situation worse is that there is no single possible solution to the problem. Usually, in such situations, we may uninstall and reinstall the affected app to see if that resolves the issue. But that hasn’t been possible since Roku pulled the YouTube TV app from its store back in April.
