You mean I do not have to be running the latest version of everything.
For the record, I have been using YouTube v17.49.37 for quite some time now.
I only updated to v18.03.36 earlier today since I had time to tested it.
I use the root version in a Magisk module.
I test new versions on a Pixel 3a (LineageOS) before I update it to my other devices.
The older you get, the more you realize..
- You still have fun on the front edge of change and development.
- You tend to keep your "daily use" devices behind on a stable (proven) setup.
