YouTube dislike counts are still disabled, but here’s how to view them via a browser extension

Last month, Google announced that it would stop showing dislike counts on videos on YouTube. The move has been disheartening for many users, but it’s actually something that other social media platforms have also been working on for a while now. Instagram had stopped showing likes on the platform a while back, and though creators can still get the numbers on the backend, it doesn’t show on the front end for others. YouTube’s plan is to do the same, but if you still want to see the dislike counts on videos, there is a workaround that you can use.

How to See Disike Counts on YouTube

It all starts with a browser extension called “Return YouTube Dislike”, which works on Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge browsers. It will work on Apple devices too, and will allow users to return the dislike button to users if used. It has already received hundreds and thousands of downloads, and many positive reviews.

The extension just needs to be installed once, and then turned on. Once on, it will automatically recognise when you’re on YouTube and change the website to show the dislike button. Not just that, the extension will also show you the exact number of dislikes, unlike the original version of YouTube, which showed the closest rounded off number. So instead of seeing 1K dislikes, you will see 1023 or something of the sort.

How to download Return YouTube Dislike

For PCs, you will need to open the Chrome Web Store, or the equivalent for Firefox or Edge. Once there, you simply have to search for ‘Return to Dislike’ and download the extension. The browser you’re using will automatically add the extension to your current collection, and you just have to ensure that it’s active.

It’s worth remembering though, that this extension is essentially bypassing YouTube’s rules, which means that it may remain operational for a short time. Google usually picks up such extensions, and could decide to kick it off the Chrome Web Store. YouTube could also work ways to block the extension itself, but at least you will get to see dislikes until either of those things happen.

MIUI 13 logo

After the announcement in China last month, Xiaomi along with the Redmi Note 11 series introduced the MIUI 13 for the global markets. This doesn’t bring several features that were launched in China, but only finetunes some features that were already available with the MIUI 12.5 Enhanced. These include Faster storage, Faster background efficiency, Faster processing and Longer battery life.

MIUI 13 features

  • Liquid Storage on MIUI 13 reduces fragmentation and actively manages stored data, improving defragmentation efficiency by up to 60%. MIUI 13 retains read and write speeds up to 95%—giving users a “new” experience longer, and prolonging device lifespan.
  • MIUI 13’s Atomized Memory, an ultra-fine memory management method, brings RAM efficiency to a new level. It analyzes how apps use memory and divides a single app’s RAM usage processes into important and unimportant tasks. Then it closes all unimportant tasks, allowing apps to use memory only for what’s important to you right now, enabling you to run more apps without sacrificing performance.
  • MIUI 13 brings Focused Algorithms, which dynamically allocates system resources based on usage scenarios, making MIUI more fluid and responsive. Focused Algorithms prioritizes the active app above all others, allowing the CPU to focus on important tasks, giving you faster speeds and higher performance where and when you need it.
  • Smart Balance in MIUI 13 is designed to automatically find the balance between performance and power consumption, so you can get the power and speed you need to stay on the go. With Smart Balance, overall battery life can be extended by up to 10% in MIUI 13.
  • With all-new widgets, you can personalize the smartphones with convenient modules and notifications in the App Vault or on the home screen. MIUI 13 supports widgets of different sizes. With 2×1, 2×2, 2×3, 4×2, and 4×4 options at hand, users can fit more important information on a single widget and place widgets where they may not have fit before.

MIUI 13 Sidebar

  • Sidebar in MIUI 13 allows you to access all your favorite apps in floating windows with just a swipe—without leaving your current app. You can also customize the feature with up to 10 apps in the sidebar.
