The beauty of the app is you can choose what you want to watch and scroll through all the videos to see what you’re interested in, that’s why when YouTube tries to tell you what to watch it can be a bit annoying. They have people that are more popular than others so they will try to push those in front of you, and sometimes you might discover someone new.
