  • (2023-08-16) frogman2: Glory to the extension creator. I can finally listen to music without hearing someone's cringy story!
  • (2023-08-03) محمد وسام: It doesn't work most of the time
  • (2023-07-28) Stevan Rengkeng: best
  • (2023-07-25) Georgia Brisco: this was working well, and now it's stopped :( I've tried deleting and re-adding re-starting laptop, etc.
  • (2023-07-02) saika kuraki: thx
  • (2023-04-04) Эля Тортикова: Не очень хорошо работает, иногда отключается и показывает комменты, а так в целом нормально, сойдёт. 😒👍
  • (2023-03-08) Danielle Crilley: When I first installed it, it worked perfectly. A few hours later, it didn't work anymore. I don't really know how to feel about that.
  • (2023-03-08) David K.: works only sometimes
  • (2023-03-07) Josh Baer: Did block comments, but displayed a bunch of ads, including above my playlists (forcing them down the screen) and on top of the videos! Ads are worse than comments! Shameful that this would be the solution without any mention of ads. I have ad blockers installed for a reason.
  • (2023-03-01) Grzegorz Turkowski: does not seem to work, does not detect youtube website being open - does not activate in this case
  • (2022-10-06) Tom Mirowski: Works great, straightforward, I can remove just the recommended videos.
  • (2022-05-07) Andy Hoster: Does exactly what it says, and is the only way I've found outside scripting in adblockers to hide the generally god-awful Chat full of explicit porn ad bots without having to click every time on every live music stream. May 2022
  • (2022-04-11) maplesyrupghost: Doesn't really work well. It worked immediately after installation, but then a couple hours later it didn't work again. A week or so later and several restarts later, it had no effect whatsoever on my YouTube videos, they appeared as normal. I uninstalled it, went to leave a review and it said I had to install the extension to leave a review. Well after re-installing it, it works again. But last time it only worked for a very short time, so I don't have much faith on this being reliable.
  • (2022-03-03) Amit Minz: Perefect. Keep it up.I use this to hide chats.
  • (2022-01-29) Lucian Andries: It's nice, but................... Can you make the Live Chat and the chat after the stream is over, to just Collapse, instead of fully hiding it? Meaning, leave the buttons as they are, so we can get back the chat if we need to. Please! Because if we need the chat, we have to disable the option and reload the page.🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ You can do a similar thing for comments as well. But in their case, you can make a button on the page, to hide/unhide them.
  • (2022-01-22) Alasdair Bachell: Great extension but as others have said, requires a page refresh for the chat block to work. version 1.4.1
  • (2022-01-15) Lykos Qualls: Only works when it's not in full screen autoplay mode. Doesn't actually hide the chat box itself, but it does stop the chat in general, so I can't complain about that, but it's a heads up for anyone else who does install it. Decent extension. I'd recommend for those who doesn't fall asleep with YT full screened.
  • (2021-12-06) Evan Wilson: Does what it says, makes YouTube so much cleaner and easier to use with fewer distractions. Thank you!
  • (2021-10-26) SK Lee: A few years ago, there were only programs that removed comments. I wanted to remove things that were disturbing my life, and this deals with them all. It's a pity that this kind of thing didn't come out before. Thank you so much.
  • (2021-08-09) Brian Rolincik: Works great!
  • (2021-07-31) Genesis Algorithms: Thanks! That's a really sweet app and does what exactly what I was looking for :) Also, contrary to the more popular extension "Hide youtube comments" you can toggle comments when you need with this one.
  • (2021-07-21) Inservio Letum: Live chat bugs me. It's distracting, and once you start reading to always end up headdesking. Name seemed solid, pictures in store suggest you can select parts to disable. NOPE. Just nukes all the listed parts. Far WORSE : it re-enables advertising. And on that point : since when are there TWO ads?! x^6
  • (2021-06-09) G Cheseaux: Auto hiding chat is awesome Thanks a lot for creating that extension. Works perfectly at the moment 😇
  • (2021-05-31) Tryna Getto: Works well!
  • (2021-05-27) Sam Rogers: Requires a page refresh before chat is actually hidden, otherwise would be great. Plugin version 1.4.1 Chrome Version 91.0.4472.77 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • (2021-05-15) f m: Doesn't work
  • (2021-05-11) Razeen Mustafa: The extension was working perfectly, but for whatever reason, it no longer works nearly as well. The comments, that were previously blocked, now show up, and I need to refresh the page to get them to disappear, which is annoying. There appears to have been an update recently, and I wonder if that's why it no longer works.
  • (2021-05-08) Jessica McAdams: Works! Helps with distractions.
  • (2021-04-30) Dimitri: works great just used it
  • (2021-04-26) David Brophy: Watch out! This extension has a bug... it accidentally hides the "Manage Membership" button on the Paid Memberships page (https://www.youtube.com/paid_memberships), so it's not possible to change your Youtube Premium billing details.
  • (2021-04-18) Ala: Teşekkür ederim, tam da aradığım şey! Yorumları, önerilen videolar kısmını ( yanda çıkan), hatta beğenme ve beğenmeme tuşlarını gizledi.Ve açtığım playlistlerdeki videoları da gizlemedi. Teşekkürler.
  • (2021-04-12) Bryan Matthews: Works well! Definitely helps with distractions.
  • (2021-04-11) Casey Knolla: Works exactly as expected
  • (2021-04-11) Diamant: Работает!! Спасибо!! Чат на ютубе автоматически пропадает!!
  • (2021-03-24) Lem Dulfo: This works. Goodbye toxic Youtube chat/comments!
  • (2021-02-14) John Maia: Broke my YouTube entirely
  • (2021-02-14) Wisdom: It broken the filters/like & dislike buttons (they no longer exist with this extension).
  • (2021-02-08) danisaushaff: Hiding Likes/Dislikes is hiding the "filter" button in the search result menu.. hope you fix it soon.. great extension nonetheless!
  • (2021-02-07) Kristoffer Baros: Without this addon I was constantly wasting my time on reading comments and watching new videos in "Related" section - now I feel like a free man. P.S. At first I was thinking that my youtube broken when the like/dislike buttons dissapeared, but when I noticed a new checkbox in this addon I realized that this is what I needed all this time - now I'm totally free from other's opinion - just me and certain content I'm came for. Huge thank you!
  • (2021-01-19) J: wow better than expected i'm a lofi listener, the chat always trigger me. also, the related videos also helps me to watch more Youtube videos
  • (2020-10-20) SP Yoon: It's Perfectly! what i wanted :D
  • (2020-09-30) Michael: Works as expected. Thank you
  • (2020-09-21) Jack Lee: be nice when if you hid comments, you could still comment yourself.
  • (2020-09-17) Wilson: Works. Thanks.
  • (2020-03-24) Hrishikesh Garud: working
  • (2020-01-23) Laura Fuller: Works amazing!!!
  • (2020-01-22) StAmFoRd Lion & Luca the Vizsla: Works great. I only use it for hiding the live chat box. But it works for all three if required. Great little extension! Well done to the dev
  • (2019-10-28) андрій кужель: то что нада
  • (2019-09-19) Andrey: Hey, the extension is great, but the Recommended is not longer being blocked, thus 1 star rating to get your attention.
  • (2019-06-04) Morgan Taylor: Works!

  • (2022-01-29, v:1.4.1) Lucian Andries: Yes, but actually no!
    Hey. Can you make the Live Chat and the chat after the stream is over, to just Collapse, instead of fully hiding it? Meaning, leave the button there as is, so we can get back the chat if we need to. Please!
  • (2021-05-16, v:1.4.1) HansTheHuman: Youtube needs to be refeshed for this to work.
    Love the extension, I consider it essential. However, recently it seems a Youtube or Chrome update has made it so when Youtube is opened in a new tab the page needs to be refreshed for the hide comments, chat, etc to work. Something you can look into, please? Thanks and warmest regards.
  • (2021-03-11, v:1.4.0) belg4mit: Smart defaults
    New features are nice, but defaulting to hide voting is probably not ideal as an unannounced "upgrade" for existing users.
  • (2020-09-27, v:1.3.12) Jack Lee: "hide comments" suggestion
    maybe hiding comments shouldn't hide the comment box.
  • (2019-11-06, v:1.3.12) Dave: Add new feature
    Hello it would be nice filter comments out with specific words
  • (2018-07-30, v:1.3.5) haploide allel: Stopped working: 'Hide Live Chat'
    Since a few days ago (~25-jul-18), the function 'Hide Live Chat' doesn't seem to work anymore. I guess some Chrome-update threw a wrench in the gearbox. Again :P
