How To See Dislikes On YouTube

To see YouTube dislikes again, you can either use the YouTube Revanced app or add an extension called “Return YouTube Dislikes” to your web browser. Both of these methods are working fine. Here’s how you can use it.

Restore YouTube Dislikes With YouTube Revanced App ( Android users)

You can see the dislikes again on YouTube in a few simple steps using the YouTube Revanced application. It is a free version of the YouTube premium app.

It gives you YouTube Premium features at no cost, such as background play, blocking sponsorships, removing ads, and it even lets you turn on the dislike counter on YouTube videos.

However, YouTube Vanced has been discontinued because of legal issues with Google. We also don’t recommend you use YouTube ReVanced.

But if you really want to enable the dislike counter again, you can think about using this app. To turn on the dislikes counter on videos, follow the steps below.

1. First of all, download the YouTube ReVanced application from here.

2. After downloading the application, install it on your device and open the application.

3. After that, Tap on the “profile icon” at the top right corner and select “Settings”.
