Moto g4 play YouTube problem

On a g 4 play when watching YouTube , if you turn the phone horizontal the phone locks up but the video keeps playing. Need to restart phone to get control again.
Any ideas? Most apps have been removed and no malware or viruses found

I did a quick Google search and have found people reporting the same issue on Nougat and Youtube across multiple phone brands and models. Most say that returning back to portrait and then going back to landscape fixes it, some claim that pressing fullscreen and not just turning it keeps it from happening and some claim it happens based on how high the resolution of the video is. The thought is that if you go to landscape while the video is loading it can cause an issue.

Good luck! Let us know if any of these things work.
