How to fix YouTube comments not loading?

2. Reload YouTube

If the signing-in method doesn’t work or if you have signed in already,  try reloading the website. It is the most basic thing to do.

A lot of times YouTube not working due to random caching or connection issues. If this is the reason why the YouTube comments are working, reloading will fix it.

3. Try a different video

On YouTube, creators are allowed to disable comments for their videos. So there is a chance that the video you are watching has the comments section disabled by the uploader.

Try watching another video and see if the comments section appears. If you can see all the comments, there is nothing wrong with your browser or YouTube. It is just because of the video settings set by the uploader.

4. Change comment sorting to Newest First

If you can view the comment sections but with a rotating circle rather than the comments, try this method. Many users have said that it works for them.

Change the comment sorting method to Newest First instead of Top Comments (or the other way around).

The comments section will be refreshed. And you can start seeing comments on the video.
