Youtube on mobile not showing mobile site, shows desktop

Description of the issue: Opening YouTube on android device brings up the desktop page for YouTube so the images and wording are tiny. When watching videos, it does not fill the entire screen as before and all videos and font remain small.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3. Opening YouTube on Brave mobile app put pulls up as the desktop app not the Youtube mobile site.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!): Brave browser on mobile pulls up YouTube desktop app not the mobile site.

Expected result: YouTube mobile site not desktop site

Reproduces how often: Everytime since the update

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): Android Version 1.50.114

Additional Information: Please help! I love using Brave and use it for everything, especially YouTube. Thank you!

Could you check if Desktop mode is on?
Do this by clicking on the three vertical dots in the toolbar. There should be an option of Desktop mode. Since the update, once you select Desktop mode, it remains that way until you change it back.
