YouTube said it will let users override automated recommendations after criticism over how the online video service suggests and filters toxic clips.

"Although we try our best to suggest videos you’ll enjoy, we don’t always get it right, so we are giving you more controls for when we don’t," Essam El-Dardiry, a product manager at YouTube, wrote in a blog on Wednesday.
