Hello WeedTube Community!
There are some new updates that we are excited to share with you! After months of working with our developers we’re finally able to release this version of our beloved app- with a fresh new look! WeedTube is looking and working better than ever before and we’d love to dive into some of these updates with you.
Let’s go over the full list of fixes and updates!
Resolved App Crashes
You’re watching a video with your favorite WeedTuber and suddenly the screen goes black and it’s lost- you don’t remember where you were in the video and then you just close the app altogether. We’ve all been there and we know how frustrating this is firsthand. We’re so happy to hopefully have fixed this problem. The app is no longer crashing! Of course with any technology there’s room for errors and bugs, and if you notice anything be sure to let us know by emailing our service team at [email protected]
Sometimes words aren’t enough- so we have emojis! We at the WeedTeam have been craving emojis for YEARS. After years of having to type out “LOL” or “so funny” we can finally rest our delicate fingers and press the button that represents our emotion the most clearly.
Enhancing our search functionality has been at the forefront of our list for quite some time. We’ve wanted to tailor this search to each user and use their interests to create a unique search experience. Not only does enhancing our search with features like location-based trends and suggestions give you the capability to find better content easier, it also enables the app to use your prior searches to create a personal algorithm that is tailored to your search trend.
Improved Upload Experience
Our upload page now allows users to upload more seamlessly than ever before and on more devices than ever before! For best results we still recommend uploading from a computer, but mobile upload versatility is something we’re already working to improve. We greatly appreciate patience from creators as we develop even more changes to the upload page in the future. Please send any upload issues to [email protected]
Change Username Functionality
Did you sign up with that old name that doesn’t quite suit you anymore? Did “Munchie6969” not have the ring to it in 2021 that it did in 2018? Don’t fret my friend- now you can change your username! We’ve wanted this feature for quite some time and we’re really excited about it. There’s no limit to how many times you can change it! You can be whoever you want to be on WeedTube (just as long as the name isn’t already taken). ;)
Improved Chromecast and AirPlay Functionality
Watch your favorite WeedTubers on the big screen with improved Chromecast and AirPlay Functionality! Easily switch from your phone or tablet to your TV in seconds. Watch where you want, when you want, and how you want.
Improved Reporting of Content, Comments, Users
There’s always a few bad apples in the bunch, and WeedTube is dedicated to keeping our users safe- whether that be from the bad apple, the mold in the basket, or the bugs on the ground. WeedTube wants you to feel as though you can report any content, comments, or users who violate our terms of service. We’re working hard to ensure this platform remains a safe space for all users.

Sticky Videos (watch while scrolling)
Tired of writing down all of the videos you’re thinking about watching on a piece of notebook paper then losing the notebook paper and crying because you had that one video on there that you can’t remember how to find again then one day you find the notebook paper but there’s water on it and it’s smudged so you can’t read the title of the video you wrote down so you start crying again? Yeah- us too! Now you can just press a little arrow and the video you’re watching will get smaller on your screen, while you do other stuff in the app-- like browse for more content! Never lose your place in a video while browsing again. Sticky videos are here to stay!
Ability to Choose Preferred Language
As the platform expands so does our need to accommodate users in different parts of the world. We are thrilled to now offer language preferences for our users. Language preference ensures that the content users receive while browsing the site is content that is relevant to them.
Caption Upload Capability
Accessibility remains a focus on our platform as we look towards more ways to allow users to share and/or experience content. With this update users are now able to upload captions for their content. If you would like to learn more about creating an SRT file visit this blog or the following blog to learn how to create an SRT file in Final Cut Pro.
We’ve wanted to implement analytics for creators for quite awhile. While we’re still working on smoothing it out for desktop versions of the site, currently on the updated version of the app creators can view insights on their audience and how their channel is performing. Some of these analytics include Top Videos, Latest Comments, Total Views, Total Subscribers, and Recent Subscribers. We’re constantly trying to improve the experience for both viewers and creators. Although these analytics are just a starting point, we hope they’re helpful for WeedTube creators. Please let us know what analytics you’d like to see in future updates by emailing us your suggestions at [email protected]
Selection of Interested Categories
Tired of seeing the same content over and over? With our latest update the WeedTube app has an algorithm that tailors to your interests. Select what categories fit your fancy and let the tech do the rest. With category selections users are better-able to filter content based on their entertainment or educational desires.
See who sees you! Now you can view a full list of your subscribers! You can also view and edit your subscriptions. We wanted to make this process as simple as possible. Not only that but you can also see your latest subscribers by using the “my analytics” section on the app.
Forgot what you searched last night because the blunt hit too hard? Never worry about that again! Find old videos or walk down memory lane with the added search history feature.
Forgot what you watched last night because the blunt hit too hard? Man you gotta tell me what was in that blunt! Nonetheless, never worry about that again! Find previously watched videos with the added watch history feature.
Channel Owner Can Delete Comments From Their Own Videos
Creators can now delete comments from their videos! This is a long overdue feature, but an exciting one nonetheless. Users have the ability to monitor their comment section, but please report any activity that violates our terms of service.
We’re so excited about all of these new updates and features! We hope you’re excited too! Tell your friends to download and experience WeedTube like never before!
Have fun with the new app! We have long awaited the release of this update, and we can't wait to hear what you think. Stay tuned for even more updates coming soon!
We value community feedback, so please email [email protected] with any thoughts, questions, issues, or concerns.

We can’t wait to watch, sesh, and share with you!
