nikanico - Forget previous review...I love this app
Update: I figured I’d leave the prior review there to show how stupid I am... just don’t touch the screen so hard and those songs will move all over the place with incredible ease. I figured it out by accident.... moron moment over... love this app now more than ever... love love love
Look, I love this service because it has literally every song/cover/live version etc. of everything.... however, I spend all day making these playlists that I cannot rearrange!!!!!
I click edit, the equal sign (I don’t know what else to call it) appears on the left and I have to touch that thing like 87 times before I can get it just right so the stupid menu doesn’t come up instead. I HATE IT. It is literally so frustrating it makes me not even want to use the app.
I’ve had to resort to deleting things that I want to be at the end of the playlist and then adding them again just to get them to where I want.
Please please please fix this or make it easier or bigger or something. It’s literally a crapshoot on whether I can touch it just right so I can pull it up or down in the playlist.
I can’t be the only one this annoys. That would shock me to the core....
D. Comiskey - Inexcusably bad
I don’t even know where to start with just how buggy and unusable this app and YT Music is overall. It’s not a step down from Google Play - it’s ten steps down. GP worked flawlessly, you could edit metadata (like artwork), stream through your Sonos for FREE and it has/had a simple User interface.
YTM has none of that and it’s simply inexcusable. All they had to do was rebrand GPM and call it a day. Instead, we get an app that is so frustrating to use. Plug it in CarPlay and you don’t get a “most recent” screen like every, single other music app gives you. You have to manually navigate to what you want. If you want to start up where you left off before, you have to use the app on the phone and make at least 3 clicks to get to your recent album/songs.
It also doesn’t remember your playback settings. If you click on “repeat” for an album, it will usually stop by the second play. If you don’t have repeat on and you’re at the last song of an album, hitting the |> button won’t take you back to the first track. Again, that is just BASIC functionality.
If you want to stream your library through your Sonia system? Well, with GP it was free. Now? You have to pay for the 9.99/mo upgrade fee for YTM “Premium.” No thanks, Google. You don’t take away a free service and give us an inferior one as a replacement and have the gall to charge people for it.
CurtisL - Basic features are a failure
I truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating.
westopher718 - Missing Google play music
In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me.
The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here??
I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.
•Kit Katt• - One “tiny” complaint
Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.
Caster Shell - Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?
i6ix - I hate this. Google music this is not.
I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it.
This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about.
Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess.
tke240 - Cash Grab
If you’re coming from Google Play and if you’re already paying for a Google Play subscription, then this app may be perfectly suited to you. If you’re migrating from the free version of Google Play, you’re likely going to be very unhappy.
The app seems specifically designed to annoy the user with as many roadblocks to enjoying their music as possible in order to force them into purchasing a subscription. The app will not run in the background without a subscription, so forget about using it in the car and having a gps running at the same time. Advertisements are played in between nearly every song, including music you already purchased. Often these would be video ads so if you’re on a limited data plan, that’s going to hurt. Downloading your music is a premium feature as well.
YouTube’s global head of music, Lyon Cohen, stated in an interview at SXSW “There’s a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers,” and it appears he’s making good on that.
Google Play generated income off me in their free service by playing ads on their radio, which I was fine with and presumably by taking a cut of the sale whenever I purchased an album from them, which I was also fine with. However, I won’t be bullied into paying for a subscription. I’ve transferred my music to another service and will not be purchasing further music through Google/YouTube which is a shame as I felt Google Play was really well done.
-/$728 - Not working when offline
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip.
1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2).
2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
LordBeard - This is my first review I’ve ever written on Apple
This app...it’s a lot. I mean I was forced to come to this app. Visually, I love the interface over Google Music. Having the videos here are cool. The mixes are usually better than Google Music as well, but that’s where it ends. The force closing is tragic. If someone calls or you enter the app back quickly it will close the app. Unlike Google Music, it won’t even pick off where you left. Why are playlists not in alphabetical order...what in the crazy town of an idea was that. You can’t even search for your playlist, like you could on Google Music, without turning up a ton of other results and never yours. I mean these are like basic functions, I don’t ask for much, I ask for what i had to be what I had. This app was out months before y’all made us switch. So the basic functionality of Google music was just bypassed. I’m upset. I can’t even go back to Google Music. It’s like y’all are forcing me to go Apple Music but all of my downloads, about 10,000, are here. Sigh.
Kenzie2004 - this app is great but
it could be better the “my mixtape” is just music that i went out of my way to find it music i have in my likes or downloads rarely is there new music in there that i haven't heard, along with that if my mixtape is supposed to be songs that i like and etc then don’t play different music at different times, in the morning it plays different music than in the afternoon and night which is okay but i like to hear everything and my morning music is the same as my night time and my afternoon music. Along with the play more music for me, if the new discover playlist or whatever it’s called is supposed to help me find new music it would be nice to make it more accurate I've never liked a song that played in that playlist and it’s not even the type of music i listen to and i’ll listen to anything. also it needs to be updated all the time not every Wednesday.
IStoppingPowerI - Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?
(Updated On Exp) Starting to love this new look actually. I can see the songs I enjoy replaying come up well at the top section. What was great before was tapping a track that I’ll enjoy, and wondering - what would some remixes/covered/related tracks sound like. The older “more” button or what the current “i”/“Information” button had previously done this. It was awesome! I was hooked. I could find so many great songs from other artists/DJs and so on by finding a great hit, then tapping those buttons. Now those features aren’t to be found.
I don’t feel confident paying because I can get the same great hits/music from streaming services that I’ve never tried before. I was a student for all the time I’ve used it (1.5 years) as well - so I really do love the app! It’s harsh pressing the info button and seeing nothing.
mantec82 - You tube music
It is awesome to pick out songs that take me back to the high school days of the seventies star. Football player and rock guitar was progressing rapidly into the mind blowing riffs we rock and rollers know and love I have many of the best guitar in the world in my head thanks to you tube music I can tell the guitar hero from the first phrase of there guitar I’m 60 now and the music of today well I know they are artists and all they never be a Eddie or Alex or jimi h jimmy thanks to you tube music they will live in my world forever long live classic rock thank you Eddie who is Van Halen and Alex you should all know in my opinion the greatest guitar player ever who he is you tube music keeps these guys will captivate-generations to come thx Tom c
grizzlemynizzle - It’s ok
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t male a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered.
furhdab - Meh
I love the amount of music available! I came from google play music so this was great! My quips though and I hope these are changes that come along: my library doesn’t give me the ability to choose a letter and then get taken to that area, I literally have to scroll to let’s say the H’s... which wouldn’t be bad if I didn’t have over 3000 songs in my library. You can’t change the song when your phone is locked, you have to go into the app to do that and pause it. Also when you go to an artist’s page and click a song by them, it doesn’t just play their next top song it goes to a different artist that is similar and starts playing a song by them. And every time I remove a song from my que, the app forces you back to the top of the list and then you have to scroll back down to where you were.
killershadow115 - Can't customize anything
Alot of the recommended stations are just some main stream popular artist I never listen too. Let me add my own playlist or artist to my main menue play lists. Let me add or move wdgests around. And for crying out loud all the playlist have the same songs... Like if I click on a dubstep song or something why put something non related to dubstep there? Same with Nightcore or electro music.. let me make my experience with this app better by allowing me to change and move things around. I don't even scroll down because it's all garbage that I'll never click on. It's so sad that this app just get worse and worse. Now you added that song video thing when the old one worked perfectly fine. Now It randomly switches to video even if I selected song. I had a grate experience with this app for like 3 years but it's just getting worse and worse over that time
WITH LOVE... - Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improve
I’m super happy they finally allowed the transfer of our Google Play music playlists, but using this as my main music app is going to need a few improvements if I’m being honest. First, the app can be glitchy when loading info the current song playing, and sometimes I have to close the app fully to get it to work. Secondly, if you are going to have a feature of having lyrics built into the app, please update it to where you know any song made within the last 30-40 years at the minimum will load no matter the genre or artist, no matter how popular or not the song is (in it’s current state it feels like a beta rather than a fully released music app.) I enjoy it overall but am looking forward to improvements moving forward.
SometimesFish - SO AGGRAVATING!!
I downloaded the app and it very graciously gave me 2 weeks premium for free. I could download music and listen to it offline and it was add free. I was building up my playlist and towards the end of the 2 weeks I had about 50 songs downloaded and in my playlist. The end of the two weeks finally came and premium was gone. Here comes the problem. All my downloads were gone, you can only access them if u have premium. I was alright with that because I still had my playlist and could always use data. I go into my playlist and shuffle, the first song had an add. It was expected, but as I continued on I found that there is an add at the beginning AND end of EVERY song. There is an option to skip after 5 seconds but I don’t want to be pulling my phone out every few minutes to skip an add. THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN ENJOY THIS WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY PREMIUM. Thank you for reading my rant on why you shouldn’t download this app. Have a great day!
Minorly Disgruntled - Great Concept - Terrible Execution
I honestly had high hopes for this app, but in the end it was just a major let down. The music selection is great, but everything else about the app is there to make sure you can never actually listen to the music. Most songs will stop after 10-30 seconds and restarting the app won’t fix this problem. It will happen often, randomly, and unpredictably. Also, one you pause a song and leave the app it loses it’s memory. So let’s say your on a road trip and stopped to get gas, when you get back in the car you essentially have to restart the entire playlist you were just on. Individually these problems aren’t terrible, but combined it is the absolute worst. Which is really upsetting considering the content on here is actually amazing. Overall, only use this app if you’re at home and don’t mind consistently trouble shooting. Not an app for on the go people with busy lives.
LaurenTheLaw - Dude Waht
I really enjoyed this app. . . Up until recently.
See, with the past few updates, it getting harder and harder to find the music I like.
It recommends different versions of a song I like, but I don’t want different versions, I just want to listen to the song the way I like it. Be it faster tempo or otherwise.
Also, first page I see when I enter the app now offers less of the things I’m interested in.
While my favorite songs are cramped in a corner all together, a bunch of things I don’t care about take up the entire screen.
I don’t want to listen to ‘New Releases’ or ‘Hottest Country Albums’ because that’s NOT WHAT I LIKE.
The music I want is shoved in a corner under ‘your favorites’.
SURE, those are TOTALLY my favorites and not just DIFFERENT THINGS ENTIRELY.
I don’t even know what half of the stuff recommended to me are!
I had high hopes for these few big updates, but all I see is failure to pander towards the audience.
Please, staff. I know there is a low chance of someone reading this, especially since it’s a negative review.
Please give me back the app that I loved! Instead of just calling random music you’ve thrown at me ‘personalized’, just go back to the way you were.
This isn’t difficult. All you have to do is take away the new bad stuff, and replace it with the old good stuff.
Sincerely, An unhappy customer
kcchiefn420 - Just falls short
This app has a lot of potential and I’m not sure who decided to have it work the way it does but very simple things this app doesn’t offer is holding it back so much. For instance if I click add song to queue it makes so much more sense to add said song to a new list that starts after the current song playing not at the end of the shuffled playlist which can have hundreds of songs in it. Adding to a queue means you want to listen to it next or at the least soon. And why for the love of god is it almost the end of 2020 and this app doesn’t support the ability to remember the shuffle and replay settings when you come back to the app. I mean such simple things like this are littered through the app and are holding what has potential to be the best music streaming app back from the top.
TL:DR Fire whoever your app dev is cause they are trash.
Go MArk - Saved items keep don’t update automatically
Please, if I have a playlist synced in “saved items” it supposed to update (download automatically) all the new tunes which I put on the same name “online” playlist, but it never uptade itself, the only way is deleting the playlist (in saved offline) and download all the way AGAIN to get sometimes just 3 new tunes I must to download like 3 hundreds tunes in order to keeps up-to-date my offline same name synced playlist. I’m thinking to cancel my subscription only because this, it already bugging me a lot. Second thing the music VIDEOS in a playlist synced to play offline some of them just play the music sound, if I created a Music VIDEOS playlist it’s supposed to play ONLY VIDEOS in all of musics which i put on it, not just a few aleatory (p.s: off course I added the video option when I did the prior search). TKS
Nymjy - One thing...
So I really like this app because it almost reads your mind with the songs you want to listen to and I like that it gives you the option to watch the music video that goes with the song. The thing is (and I’ve seen complaints about this in other reviews), when you first get the app it asks it you want a free trial for premium. A lot of apps do this so I wasn’t too surprised but anyway I didn’t want to use mine, or at least not yet. So i just pressed the little “x” so I could go on without the trial but when I opened the app like a minute later it told me that I was currently in the free trial even though I’m 100% sure that I pressed the “x.” So ya, that’s pretty much my only complaint. Otherwise it’s a great app. Thanks for reading!
Alex Lerman - The revamp changes everything.
This is a great app, has the absolute biggest library(YouTube), option for video and all of this is just the early access version! Very excited to see what the future updates bring with them. Few complaints are: Remove the swipe to delete from playlists, or make it harder to trigger, like requiring a double swipe. This was an issue in GPM, still an issue here. Also add shuffle and repeat buttons on the play screen and the ability to add whole albums to playlists. Other than that, keep up the good work and keep expanding the official library, as it’s missing big albums like Stoney by post Malone and 4 your eyes only by J Cole and so on.
sanaya1201 - Stoped working the same
When I first downloaded the app I loved it because I could make my own playlists and it was always recommending me new music and artist and was always up to date when artist released new music, however I’ve had the app for a couple of years and I noticed that it started to say “song unavailable” and at first it was a couple of songs and I thought it got removed because some were songs I Hadn’t listened to in a while, however today I go on the app to listen to music and over half of my playlist with songs says song unavailable and when I tried to remove it and re- add the song it wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’m sad because I love this app, but I heard it happened to people with a premium account as well, so unfortunately I have to find another app to listen to music on in the meantime. Please fix this!
nopicnic - Good app but bugs with last updates
Hands down, this app has the most music. Nice to be able to listen to lesser known artists, covers, live performances, etc. Editing and sharing playlists on the app is really easy. One peeve of mine is that it has an option to download songs, but if you are out and have no cell service - you can’t open “library” to access “downloads” without needing internet - they should have an icon for “downloads” separate from “library” that opens right away without internet. Since the last update - it’s hit/miss with the app staying on. Before, you could lock your phone and the music would still play. Now it feels like you have to remember to trigger/wake the app to keep it on.
Danku Coris Chi - Giving it four stars will change if app changes this.
I want the app to change the premium version I want the app to where I’m able to play it off the app it’s frustrating cause I wanna do other things and if I turn my phone off then woop the music turns off I don’t like it at all and u ask for a lot of money when using the premium since that I never bought it
It would be fine if u could let us listen off the app that way we could do other things on our phones it’s fine if u add ads skip turns or something but u need to a least let us listen off the app that’s all and I will change this rating to a five star when that is fixed anyway
I hope u get this and change it have a nice day...
i55rex - Seems Legit
Been using YT Music for about a month now and I’m pleased 100% so far! The My Mixtape section is great; I’ve had it play several songs that I love but hadn’t listened to in a while (oh the nostalgia). There are only a few glitches like how the app responds sometimes but not anything irritating to me in the least (some slow response times that last half a second). I know they are still working some bugs and kinks out, but I’ve yet to have the app crash on me since I’ve been using it. It’s my #1 go-to when listening to music on my phone whether I’m at home or driving. Can’t wait to see what new additions we get in the future!
EdG70 - Good but...
Been using the plataform for almost a year. It’s good but could have some improvements.
Some of the songs are not recorded at the same volume so that creates a fluctuation when listening causing you to constantly adjust the volume. Second there’s no way (or at least I haven’t found it) to arrange the downloaded music into files in order to listen “offline”. Because you can have files, but they won’t play unless you are online. Offline you can arrange the songs in a “play next” but it won’t stay like that when you close the app. I would appreciate if someone tells me how to do this. Because I would like to have a “working out” file or “reading” file to listen offline.
Rahee.khan - I like the App, but...
I often cast music from the App on my Sony TV. Whenever it is connected to the TV, overall App behavior becomes different, here are few examples:
1) When I play from my downloaded list, it does not follow the list itself. Depending on what song I select to play from the downloaded list, the queue becomes random with songs which is not in sync / order with my list
2) Moving a song up / down in the list also doesn’t work well, if I try to drag a song from one position to another, and I hold down for longer than 2-3 seconds, the drag auto releases, and scrolls back to where I originally started the drag from
3) Switching between Song / Video on the top bar is very slow, and sometimes reverses my choice, I have also seen a song being paused when attempting to switch to/from Song / Video
Besides this or when just using the App without being connected to the TV, it works great, just wish the integration was smoother for my particular scenario
Using iPhone 11 Pro and have auto-update on for Apps, and the TV is brand new Sony, so everything is relatively up to date on my side
kaiaT^T - Missing albums
The app is okay. I transferred all my music over from google play and I expected a better experience which was met half way. While it has its benefits there are a lot of down sides.
Some artist pages are literally missing albums. For example Steven universe which has some of season one album in its top song list but you can’t find the album anywhere on their page. I also have another album from Steven universe which also isn’t on the artist page and when you click -go to artist- it takes to to the same page where the album literally does not exist. Another problem I have is I get notifications of artists that I have not subscribed to. I can get notified of their new songs but not the ones that I am subscribed to.
exe error 666 - No new songs, not worth the money for membership
No good song recommendations, all it does is play your like songs over and over, and then finally when you get a new song it usually not a good one some weird type of stuff that just isn’t worth the membership, and to top it off you shouldn’t need to pay to have music in the back ground I should be able to have my phone off without a membership, honestly if they did that it would probably bring in a lot more people so that’s an idea and if no one likes it to bad this is an honest review and this is only my opinion not anyone else’s but it’s not a good music app, unless you have money, and even then it’s challenging to find new and good songs, which is just a pure disappointment., edit: changed from 3 star to 1 star app is to frustrating, this is just ridiculous if I could would give a .5 star if possible
Timacon - Great app but room for improvement
I love music and listen to it most everywhere I am that I can and your music library far surpasses any I’ve seen! I wish there were a few improvements that I’ve also heard others mention and those are being able to remove a song from the music que without having to wait till it plays and wish there was a way to indicate some artists I can’t stand so they don’t sneak in amongst my jam!
I also wish the app was visible on the lock screen when I’m connected to my system via WiFi the way it is when I’m connected via Bluetooth, why is there a difference on how it functions?
A few tweaks by listening to your users and it would be the perfect music app!
minceem - Issue with Bluetooth Performance
So overall the app works quite well, but there is a small bug when trying to play over Bluetooth or with Apple CarPlay. When selecting a song, the song title and artist shows, but the album doesn’t come up. The album title only displays if you change to the next song. Also, if you decide to start a song over, the song length will not reset, so if you start a 4 minute song over at the 3 minute mark, the clock will continue rolling, so you could be displaying 6 minutes of song time for a 4-minute song. These are obviously not issues affecting playback, but it’s enough for my OCD-self to notice. Should be an easy enough fix to implement.
Jehjdjdlskbmaskjsjs - Fix the playlist shuffling
I have a playlist that I workout to which has like 400 songs on it but every time I hit shuffle it plays the same songs every time I hit the shuffle button on the playlist so it’s not truly shuffling the songs and it gets pretty repetitive, fix the shuffling system to where it shuffles everything from my playlist so I’m not listening to the same songs every time I go to turn on the playlist. Like if I put a song on there today and there’s a song I put on there two years ago I want the same probability that it might land on a song I haven’t heard in a long time. The whole principle of shuffling is to be truly random and I don’t feel like I’m getting that.
digitaldelete - barely usable on iphone 8 running latest OS
this is the only music service i use but it’s honestly a shame at how bad it is. on my iphone 8 it is just miserably slow. if i want to hit next song, i’ll go and open the app and it’s still on the screen from 5 songs ago. i have to then wait for it to load to hit next. also you’ll get to use the media buttons on the lock screen like 20 percent of the time. same thing is you swipe up, good luck using media buttons to pause already playing music. lastly i absolutely hate its integration with my google home. again you’re stuck with the slowness of the app to get next or pause. now it’s even worse, if i want to change the playlist from my phone, i’ll go ahead and open the app which pauses the music...just from opening the app. the only fix is to hard close the app, reopen and reconnect to the home.
5-6-7-8-Nyna - Downloaded songs...?
Ever since this update 2 days ago, my downloaded songs have disappeared. I can access the full albums I’ve downloaded, but the dozens and dozens of random songs I had downloaded that were in they’re own little “downloaded songs” album/playlist/whatever are gone. I can access my liked songs, but those are different, I didn’t thumbs up every song I downloaded and vice versus. I want my album/playlist of downloaded songs back! Sometimes I want a mix of stuff, besides the offline playlist of 20 songs that the app has put together for me. I love this app. the $ I pay for the amount of music I can access and download is awesome...but I want to be able to download everything I’ve downloaded again! Please!
Littlezeekers - So much buffering
I mostly listen to music while I’m working in the morning, I like to use the app because it does help discover music I would potentially like. My main issue with the app is every time I take out an AirPod to interact with another person it pauses my music and almost never picks back up. It try’s to buffer back where I was but I usually have to start the song over or just skip it. It’s rather annoying especially when it’s a podcast or a longer music playlist. Just seems like a big flaw that it can’t pick up where I left off, especially when I usually put my AirPod back in within a minute or two of taking it out. The only other issue is it plays a lot of repeat songs, mostly they’re songs that I’ve liked but I don’t discover new music by listening to the same stuff..
Luke¡ - Fix this
I love this app I have been using it for over a year now as my main music streaming app. It has been flawless in my mind ever since they made the update to download playlists offline. That is, until recently. Recently, about every fifth song that plays, wether it be from one of my playlists or a search, doesn’t load. This is extremely frustrating when I have to skip all of these songs which will never load and just skip constantly. It turns a 100 song playlist into only 30 minutes of actual music streaming. Please fix this bug it has ruined the app for me and stops me from listening to a select portion of all of my playlists.
PORN STAR SWEETS - In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho.
I absolutely LOVE this! No ads, Thank yoooou!
Having everything at your finger tips and also it gives amazing finds and even ones you forgot about & hen will show you whole entire playlist. You want baby making music or old school rock ballads then you’re all set for hours with a playlist made, Or make your own! I have tons of playlists already. Plus you subscribed to the artist. ONLY thing I don’t like is the price. But it’s really not a lot when you think about how much time you save and being able to take with you on your cell with unlimited space!!
~I_Don't_Know~ - Issue
Okay, Idk how long I’ve used this app but I have for a little bit, and the only two issues are that, when I’m trying to add music to a new playlist sometimes I would make the playlist before hand, knowing I needed to add music to it. But I usually need to make a new one when I click add to playlist, because the one made before doesn’t show up on my list of playlists. Honestly it’s not that big of a deal but today I was trying to add music to a playlist but the playlist didn’t show up at all, no matter how many times I made it before I chose the song or when I made a new playlist after I chose the song and clicked add to playlist. Those are really the two main things but the first ones not that big of a deal.
Sire2K - I really want to love this app, but...
I really want to love this app, but the bugs it contains drive me crazy enough not to make the switch from Google Play Music (which isn't without it's flaws, such as selecting genres in the new releases) which offers a better UX.
One problem that shouldn't go without being mentioned is the fact that after ending an incoming call that caused the music to pause the music won't resume; in fact, it won't even allow the user to continue where s/he left off. Instead, the user will have to find the playlist/album again and remember what track was playing to resume.
I hope this review doesn't fall on deaf ears (yes Google Devs, I'm speaking to you), as I fear that this might just be another of those projects that Google eventually drops instead of fixing.
Maxwell Darwin - Overall, a great platform
I really enjoy the selection of Music available. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the user interface can be a little confusing at times. No ability to shuffle or repeat while on a track and while using Apple CarPlay, no ability to like a track, which means if I want to remember a track for later, I have to look down at my phone. Actually less helpful than just putting a like button on the track image on Apple CarPlay. I also don’t always like the auto playlist selection. It seems the algorithm could use some work because it has a hard time matching the mood of my initial playlist or song(s).
Angry girlszzzzzzzzzz - It's getting worse
They are slowly making this app worse. First they took away the slider that added or took away variety and now it seems like they are just trying to shove new music down my throat. I DONT WANT TO LISTEN TO THOSE SONGS. I also really enjoyed the "rediscover music you loved" tab because it was cool to see what I had listened to a year ago but in the new update they took that out for some reason. Also I used to be able to see other versions of songs and songs that were similar to that song by going into more info about it but they took that out too. That feature was pretty much the reason why I kept this app even after they got rid of other features. This app gets more boring, simple, and frustrating with every update. They should have just kept it the way it was when they first put it out. It was better that way.
DudefuseTIB - Developers read ⭐️ 🌟
Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user.
Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music.
another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.
Johns59 - GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!!
Amend90 - Could have been better..
Overall the first week of having this app was amazing the best music experience I will have in a long time.
Now I use it and I have to pat for it to be in my pocket turned off. I can’t even open other apps without having it cost a paywall from this app. I get it that you would need more cash as the app is free and that’s good but when you have an advertisement every before and after a song is it really necessary? Know I sound like a major Karen but I’m trying to be honest won’t get the fun I had listening to music again..
The reason I’m giving it three stars is because I don’t have that much passion for this app although I enjoyed the time I had with it even if I can’t get it anymore..
herom99 - Needs improvements
I would like to use this app 100% of the time instead of Google Play Music, however, there are certain things I don’t like.
1) when using my AirPods, I can double tap to pause, but when I double tap to resume—it doesn’t work! I need to go directly into the app and hit play. Hitting play on the lock screen won’t work, either, as it just keeps spinning. It forces me to go directly into the app and start the song from the beginning.
2) it’s cool that you can get both audio and videos on the same app. But it’s weird when the app plays the audio of the video version. You could be listening to a song (video) with long pauses that only make sense when you’re watching a video.
michk72 - Not as good as google play
It seems there are ten extra steps to get anywhere. No index on your lists, so you’re scrolling forever; they recently changed how they display stuff by artists (now all songs are in one long list, and if the album you want to listen to isn’t on the top of their list, you have to take an extra step to get to the album listing. I have a lot of international artists and sometimes it’s easier to find what I want to listen to by album cover); playlists don’t automatically start over (there’s an auto play, but it doesn’t start the playlist over, it just plays random stuff YM thinks you might like, sometimes stuff I don’t even have in my library). Am one more terrible discovery away from switching music services.
JClinkers - A second generation failure.
In the beginning you could use Google Play music with your phone locked. Just like any other music app the free version includes advertisements. That part makes sense and a palatable experience overall. As they revamped THAT app and changed all of that (including getting rid of mood based music selections) it got to be a worse and worse experience. When this app came i’d hoped that they’d change their minds on the worse parts of the previous experience but alas here we are. The no screen lock thing is an abysmal way to bully people into a paid subscription and otherwise makes the app unusable and you all know that. That is why you failed in the first place. Before the changes GP Music was my preferred music app. This is why people have defected and will continue to stay away from this app.

Problems plus - Dale Doughton
I love my music. My daughter told me not to get it. That I couldn’t afford it on disability pension. It brings me so much joy. I need to learn how to work it a bit better, so it players my most favourite played songs in a row. Otherwise thank you. Why doesn’t it play my favourite songs in a row. Where can I go to learn how to use it better. Thanks
DumbBunny - Frustrating and Awful Downgrade
A major step back from what was already a pretty poor user experience in Google Play Music.
(App reviewed on iPad)
I get that the experience of enjoying music is largely subjective and that people all have varying expectations when choosing a music player. With that in mind, where are literally any of the customisation options? I can’t do anything to make this work better.
I don’t need the ‘Home’ or ‘Explore’ tab, let me turn those off permanently. If I want to add music to my library, I can use the search feature at the top of the screen.
Allow me to go directly to album view in my library like a normal music player. How about some view/sorting options in albums? These things have been standard for many years. Using a nice big tablet screen to show a tiny list of albums, sorted A-Z (like a crazy person. No way to sort albums by artist? Really?) crammed against the left side of the screen so you have to scroll and scroll...
App music players have been getting worse and worse with fewer options year on year and this is the culmination of all that degradation. You’re Google, you’re supposed to be good at this stuff.
Added a star because the actual ‘now playing’ screen is pretty good and addresses problems I had with GPM.
RobMorganAU - Don’t be evil??
Yes, whatever happened to that slogan. I have no doubt that the transition from Google Play Music to YouTubeMusic makes complete commercial sense within the hallways of Google/Alphabet grand headquarters. But the coerced nature of this shift (including the delivery app and the way that music is navigated, managed and played) is an ugly outcome for those of us who invested time and money in the GPM ecosystem. Google could have readily adapted and transitioned the existing GPM music app to the YTM music library (the ostensible rationale for the move) but instead chose against this minimal impact strategy. The YTM user experience inevitably embraces google’s ability to push additional content recommendations - in our best interests of course (not). Well, now it’s done, and you’ll need to make up your own mind how much you’ll trust google with any other current and future product offerings.
NQJess - Good but for the repeats
I love this app but I find I have to give some songs a Thumbs Down at times because it just wants to play them over and over, twice or more every day. E.g. 500 Miles. Some artists (e.g. John Denver) you ask for one track and then every auto play list you ever start again will end up with most of his songs, despite not asking for another of his songs.
Ask to start a play list with a rock or pop song and within a few songs you’re listening to Country music again. It’s all good music but too much of a good thing...
Mz GaBbaNa•• - All your ads has added up in my bank account!
I have been paying for the top subscription once a month for over 6 months and I still have advertising would have but I have paid too much adding it all up now! then clicking subscribe for no ads then login in and it says your already subscribed to your account! No sh#!! But in fact I think you have given me more ads.
You constantly take my money but you never take away the ads.
Please refund all of my subscriptions. I think I’ve been loyal to the point of your just taking my money for granted. And I’m sure you will miss it!
Maykahla - Why do you have to pay exactly?
So I get the paying for the no ads thing but paying so you can go off the app is pretty annoying for me. I’m not able to pay for it because I still live with my parents, and a 3 hour drive while stuck in between two little brothers is annoying especially when their screaming is all you can hear. Overall it’s okay but I don’t really get the use if you have to stay on the app while listening to music.
Jonny1$4U - No subscription feed :(
Please just add a subscription place so we can know when our favourite artists post. The new releases section just promotes new-ish releases from pop artists and not artists that I’ve subscribed to. If I want to find new releases from artists I’ve subscribed to I have to go through their profiles 1 by 1 and it’s so time consuming. If they did something like replace the explore section that nobody uses with a subscriptions section it would really make my day :)
haydenlewis95 - Offline Playback Useless
Great app but with the latest update offline play is pretty much non existent. Every time you open up the app, it always has to ‘sync’ the offline playlists. Even when this is done and everything is downloaded, when you have no connection the app is useless, not even downloaded playlist will play until you establish an internet connection!
FuriousFajita - Great but...
Almost perfect, but there's a few issues with the offline components:
-The app checks your downloads are up-to-date every time you go listen to them, which takes FOREVER if you have a lot of offline music. It takes about 5 minutes in my case.
-It would be nice if we could organize albums/songa by genre, artist, etc. instead of getting one big list.
Dat $W4GG3R doe - Exactly what I’ve wanted for a long time
This app is exactly what I have been looking for. It’s perfect! Except, some songs randomly disappear from my playlists? I’ve tried adding the songs again and they’re yet again, not in the playlist. If this were not to happen the app would get a perfect 5 from me.
ozcybergod - Great but
Guys, the ability to chill to just music, with a near endless choice, or watch a music video, when stoned 🙃, is brilliant. The only ask is, while in landscape mode on iPad Pro 12.9, going from full screen to windowed and showing video list, it reverts to portrait, which the requires picking up iPad, annoying after a few times.
But the interface and GUI are perfect. Well done!
cshell68 - Great Music all the time
I can download or just listen to anything I can think of. My entertainment is never interrupted as I prefer to pay a membership fee. I download music I want for on the road and never have to worry about the internet dropping out. It took me a long time to sign up and I wish I had done it sooner.
Amzonjdjsjsjsdjsjs - If it’s alright could you...
This app has amazing quality although there is some thing I wish you could do. The thing is I’m trying to find a app where I can listen to music while playing something for free. Whenever I do this finding apps I cant seem to find one like that.
Ahiadb - This could be a game changer
I only do give it a 2 star because if you have to pay monthly to listen to music while using other apps or listen to music offline then you might as well not get the it would be the dream app everyone is looking for if you could use those options for free.
So basically if you don’t buy the month fee your just listening to music while still on the app
P.s i basically gave you your best experience option there
iPod touch 1234 - Black screen
Sometimes when I open the app I just get a pitch black screen and can’t do anything. Never used to happen and very annoying when it does. To fix this I have to reset the app which I don’t like to do because I very highly love the mixtape feature in this app where it picks songs you might for you. If I reset the app it removes the mixtape playlist which I don’t want to do. Please fix the issue.
marshamallow37 - Apple Watch improvement
I think the app should have better Apple Watch interaction as there are a few bugs I have noticed. I think it should have an Apple Watch interface to start playing music without touching your phone. Other than this love the app, great playlists.
beetlejuice88 - Multiple Offline playlist plz...
Awesome app with every song you want. Only thing i would really like to see is multiple playlist for downloads when your offline. Atm all songs will go in 1 playlist which is annoying when you want a particular genre at the time.. other then that awesome app with no issues 👌🏻
Anita.rogers2004 - disappointing
i loved this app until about 30mins ago when i found out the new update won’t let me play music unless i am in the app and ads are now included before every song. I absolutely swore by this app and loved every bit of it until now, smh i’m so angry
80% is not enough, IT guys! - Another untested release.
Each new release has more problems. Now I can no longer randomly play all downloaded songs. Seems a pretty fundamental feature. All it will do now is just play a single album. Also downloaded songs can’t be played unless you have network coverage. Kind of defeats the purpose!
update: Got to the bottom of this. It seems the downloaded songs periodically get deleted or at least inaccessible. Again, defeats the purpose!! You are losing me as a customer.
Debna40 - It’s good but...
It’s an amazing app. But I keep having this issue, where I play my downloaded music and I’ll lock my phone and it will stop. Now keep in mind that I have payed for the months subscription so it should be able to play while the screens locked. But no, it keeps stopping.
yo_mumma6836369 - Just glitches
It was so good at first I was signed in for premium and it was great but it just started doing this sign in error where it just flashes it and I can’t even enter the app. I’ve tried everything to fix it like deleting and reinstalling and restarting my phone, can someone please tell me how to fix it I really liked the app. I would give it a five star ranking if I can fix it
Azz156 - Drains battery
Over all I like this app but when I’m in a area with no reception or I have my phone in airplane mode my battery will completely drain within 2 to 3 hours. Is this a bug or is there something I need to turn off in the settings?
Stevo's Opinion - Repeat will not stay on
The only issue I have with the app is that I have to manually set a playlist to repeat everytime I open the app and play a playlist. It disengages the repeat feature everytime the app is closed. All frustrating, especially when I'm driving, music just stops playing!
Nanny KK - Music for the whole family
A family of 5 with kids ages between 3-17 years mean we all like to listen to very different styles of music... this music service is great for that. Quick and easy to use for novice parents too!!
Anthajavajav - Good app but has some serious issues
Overall, a great music streaming app.
The algorithm is no where near as good as Spotify’s, but over time I can see it improvising obviously.
The app is generally very buggy however.
Anytime you unlock your phone and have the music running in the background, the entire app either crashes or stops playing all music. It’s so annoying...
hybakdjehaja(farouq) - Please help me !
Hey guys, i need your assists. I just changed my phone today and dowloading every stuff from my old phone to my new phone including this app. And i had subscribed to this app before but after i changed my phone it asked me to subscribe again. Im just afraid that i will subscribe it twice. Looking forward for a reply. Thanks!
Harbs33987 - Doesn’t allow you to cancel subscription
It has a bug or glitch you can’t cancel premium subscription it just loops back to manage subscription screen. I can see subscription in google account but when you hit cancel it just loops back to manage subscription in app. Try to cancel in PayPal same issue. Can’t cancel it has hundreds of complaints on community app help same issue. At the moment a complete scam. Please fix it. I will be raising payment dispute with paypal
AuZZie-Radish - Offline playlist
The app is great but you can’t have a playlist offline you can download music into your downloads playlist but you can’t sort your music into playlists to listen offline eg. having a playlist for rock and another for rap won’t work offline you should be able to have more playlist options offline so you can have different playlist for offline music
keiran8 - Great app although one flaw
When downloading music, all downloaded tracks go into the folder called downloads rather than its own artist folder, this only works if you download the whole album. I only have 16gbs and can’t download a heap of albums but have quite a few single songs.
loafie93 - Hmm
I would like it if it wouldn’t repeat songs over and over on my playlists, also I seem to have so many same songs liked, by the same artist but then they pop up again in the playlist even straight after its already played
built: different 💶💸💀😵 - CRASHES ALL THE TIME :(
The app crashes all the time especially when I’m playing music.
As well as this, sometimes the app automatically force closes the “up next” tabs while I’m trying to look through it.
Overall it is very inconvenient and honestly not worth the money I pay for the subscription :/
$$$dj$$$ - Good but the latest update broken most of the songs
So ever since the latest update has come out I can’t listen to most of my music it’s just flickers and won’t play anything so I have to miss so much music not happy
mbrcknl - App forgets what I was playing
If I pause playback and lock the screen, this app is very likely to forget the song that was playing, and all the songs I had queued. This is quite annoying. It happens especially often if I'm streaming, and playback is involuntarily paused because I walk into an area with poor mobile coverage.
I have similar problems with some other Google apps.
ghgthbyun - Offline
I bet a lot of people would appreciate it if you guys made an update for the premiums and the non to be able to listen to music that they’ve saved offline thank you for reading this and please from the whole world take this review into consideration thank you and goodbye😋😜🦄🦋
Damonlk - Hmm
Unfortunately I can’t seem to search for my music except song by song. Which is no good if I want to play an album. Going back to Google Play - for as long as it lasts 😐.
Everything is track based. So when I look up an artist I get a list of their tracks in alphabetical order. No way to listen to an album. Please bring in the functionality of Google Play 😭.
Just deleted coz I can’t play an album of my music. Thanks for nothing, google engineers.
Utterly Disappointed 123 - Won’t play same song multiple times
Why won’t the app play the same song on repeat, or the same song more than once of included in a playlist? I have a playlist with 7 x of the same 1-hour song to help my baby sleep, and it only plays the song once, even though it is in the playlist 7 times.
Google play music never had this problem. I’m paying for a service that doesn’t work.
koifishtigerjoog - Was working well not to long ago but the shuffle feature is not working any more
When you hit shuffle on any playlist it just plays the same songs every time and it’s always the last few that have been added to the playlist even the my mix plays the same list of songs every time really annoying please fix it
GameWiz_1305 - Mostly great
Great to stream music and find new stuff too. Only problem is playing offline music I leave the app open on purpose to not reset the stream. The app decides to close after a while anyway which is very annoying. I wish this would be fixed
ulisanfelice - App close when pause song
It’s being very annoying when receive a call and the music get pause the app just closing loosing the playlist order or live video time point. Even 10 sec in a call or paused it’s enough to get the app closed.
Being so frustrated as I’m a premium member. Please fix it.
XV090 - It’s ok not the best app
This is an okay app, it is pretty useful when i want to listen to music. I really recommend you guys checking it out and downloading it. I kinda wish all the songs were free but this works out enthusiastically.
KB-AU - Far away from a replacement for GPM
I have copied my music library across from GPM which worked fine. As an offline music player with your own library YTM falls way short. Every single time i want to play my music rather than stream I need to go to downloads and search endlessly for my downloaded songs or shuffle my whole library.
This app also fails to automatically start with my car Bluetooth which GPM had no problem doing
DollyDolly747463 - Not shuffling properly
I love this app but recently it hasn’t been shuffling my playlists properly. I have a playlist with three of my favourite artists but since the last update when I shuffle said playlist it starts with one song from each artist but then plays all the songs from one artist, then all the songs from the next and then all from the last artist rather than all of them shuffled together. Please fix this.
lucky avril - music is life
in music you tube,i get what i want ,like ,music that suits my mood in a moment..and music is my life,who can live without it?
in the beginning even before i open my eyes to experience the worlds whatever it may bring in my journey,..music brings life, brings back memories for old time sake and even will give an intuition of what future may bring but who knows...living without music is like a living in a house without a roof ,. thanks for the privilege to share my simple thoughts..all the best!
Sutralove - Anything and everything
I’ve been raised listening to music in the 40’s till the music of this era ... (not that I like it so much ) and I’m only 40 still hip🙃haha but what ever I feel I want to listen too it will always be there .... what everrrrrr it is !!!!
ljuanita28 - Great app
Great app, good access to the latest music. Well played out features. User friendly and very easy search favourite songs and has plenty of options to view videos or audio.
RashidAlkaabi1999 - Need a lot of improvement
Its almost good but its need some necessary improvements !
1 - it dose not make sence that if the user added a song to a playlist he can remove it it will stay there for ever .
2- user cant allow the app to download over cellular there is an option in setting but it basically does nothing .
grrimshaw - I preferred the Google Play App
I can’t for the life of me figure out this app. How do I listen to albums that I’ve added to my library in the same place? Do I need to listen to albums separately now????? The top songs feature plays songs I don’t like and for a limited time please help. I miss that feature of google play music being able to add to library and showing at the bottom of the artists page. Thank you!!
Ralpheffectz - Why pay for something free elsewhere?
Currently listening to music on a competitors app playing in the background while I write this review.
You can’t play music in the background on your app.
You can’t play music with the screen off.
The adds are insane too. I listen to an add before a song and after a song.
Then before and after on the next song. Your platform has more adds then TV and radio.
bash_crash - Fixing playlists problem
Thank you for fixing the playlist problem i was so close to cancel my subscription with google because of that
WythehekNaut - Bug
There's this weird thing that happens when I use the shuffle feature where it plays the first second then cuts off then the song continues to play, it happens to downloaded songs too.
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Woodland Beauty🌳 - Like it!
I have YouTube Premium so I get the better side of things, but with YouTube Premium, the app is so much better and comfortable to use. I can download songs and listen to the offline and turn the screen off and still listen, just like Apple Music. Like the app so far!
lukrpatrick - Fantastic
This app is the best music app that I have found. With premium it is even better than Apple Music but it is almost free
Israphe - Money
I like how it functions but not how you need to pay for everything like listening to it while it’s closed
_ilovetuesdays - MESS!
The library and preferences from Google Play Music do not transfer to YouTube Music. Instead of sticking with Google Play Music or just rebranding the service, Google decided to go for the messiest transition in their history.
Paddle19 - Deleting this app after 5 min
A music app that stops the music as soon as you close the app??? Unless you pay $160/year! What’s the point and why do I need a second YouTube app if they both do the same thing? No thanks!
Jazz Aviation - Annoyingly money hungry
Asks you to go for premium every time u open the app.even if u have a song playing and come back to it after 30 secs .
DaBirb - Waste
Is this even different from YouTube at all besides the fact it’s JUST music. Like if I wanted to listen to music and need to keep my phone on I’d just open it in YouTube.
d3rp$0n - Disgusting
I am appalled by this business model.
There are already well established services and apps.
This brings nothing new.
It actually lacks everything that makes a streaming app good.
If you want the stuff that makes it better you actually have to pay and you still get a subpar app.
Google is making you pay way too much for something you can find in other apps for much less moolah...and it still sucks...
teejayrosene - Bad App, Bad Service
This is a terrible replacement for Google Play Music. This app and service are both terrible.
Spotify here I come.
Original Oracle - Too Costly
Too much $$$ to make this app functional
your-frequent-user - Suggestions to make the app better
I love the Mixtape personalized for me, it gets the songs that are related to the song I usually listen to. And when I search a song to play it, the next songs are the ones that I like too. The algorithm for finding the music you will love is excellent.
1) However, they have to work on fixing the downloads
2) Sorting by artist name/ song title/ album/ genre.
3) Make lyrics available
4) You should also allow us to search for the artisr/ song / lyrics in the album/playlist too since we put a lot of songs in it and sometimes forget what the title is or the artist name.
5) Top 50 songs of each country
6) Able to select songs so we can delete or add/remove to playlist, etc
FuzzyFuz097 - LMAOAOA
I was excited to finally see that I could literally listen to all the music on YouTube that I can’t find on Spotify until I read that u have to buy the premium version for background playing. Lolol what a joke.
Blebb3507 - eh
yeah, nice that it’s free but it’s even worse than spotify with the premium features. isn’t the point of a music app to listen while the phone’s locked??
4, 2.4 - No Lyrics! Bad music recommendation
There’s should be lyrics attached to the songs. The music recommendations are not good
hihohiho34 - Worst version of Spotify
Alcd57 - Horrible
I absolutely hate this app. Can’t believe Google is taking away Play. And I’m paying for Premium, too.
Playlists are confusing, “moods” is very limited and there is no “activity” filter. The other day I was listening to kids music with my young children and next on the playlist was Drake... ?! Hey Google, get your algorithm right.
googlesrippinguoff - Don’t download
This app is great if you like being screwed over. This is not a good deal. I can’t access music I’ve downloaded if I move off of the app unless I give google my money. NO THANKS. I’ll use a different service. Google is rich enough why should I pay them to listen to my music.
DJ Malloy - Beta version
So many things missing.
Update. So many things still missing or just not working. Maybe an Alpha version after all.
No longer a tinder user - Google play transition
The transition from google play to youtube music is just abysmal. There is no option to purchase individual songs or albums like before. You can only stream music, which you can’t even turn your screen off for unless you pay for premium. This is youtube’s bad take on spotify and I would not recommend it at all. If you want to stream music for free or as a subscription, apple music and spotify are far superior options. I have spent hundreds of dollars building a library on google play and I hate to see that I can no longer expand said library because of this transition. I will be switching to spotify because I am left with no other option.
Elijah.S_123 - I can’t close the app and listen to music
What’s the point of making a music app if it’s the same as YouTube?
Nish😡😡😡😡 - Love
Much love but it randomly stops playing music please fix other than that I love it
Ojy86t - MONEY
This is proof that google has been bought out by EA
ArmyOn - BTS DESERVE BETTER
first of all it’s already a bad app because you literally can’t do anything until you pay and plus they are snakes who took away almost 100 million views from ON by bts I hate the app even more now
robot-after-all - Wheres chromecast audio support?
Aly170 - Horibble
I downloaded this app and sighned in then it started saying sighn in error. I tried closing it then deleting it and re downloading it and it still didn’t work this app is a pice of crap
Mama Rav - disappointing!
i thought you’d be able to finally listen to music with your phone off without it closing but if you want to do that, gotta buy premium. extremely disappointing
Dieyokun - Sucks have to pay to listen in background bruh
Just download Spotify
gdeyjvcdgjvcfhbb - Forced out
I used google play music for many years and found it better than Spotify. Now I’m being forced into an incomplete app which I’ve seen ignores your preferences and recommend garbage. No thanks, I can turn on the radio for that. Because of the discontinuation of google play music, I will no longer be subscribing. GG
Sy_ - Feature starved
I'm on the YouTube Premium family subscription and this app needs to catch up with many useful Google Play Music features that I'm used to. Also misses downloading latest Library additions. Misses Show All Albums for some artists. Could use offload download/ playback on Apple Watch without the phone. Shuffling and randomization algorithm is far inferior to Google Play Music. Some songs that I had on Google Play Music playlists simply fail to load offline on YouTube Music. The list goes on... I've considered switching to Apple Music several times but I much rather this app getting right.
L5v5n - Not good
First thing that’s super upsetting is I have to keep my phone unlocked to listen to music. You guys should fix it up like the other apps and make it more accessible when locked. Also the video idea is cool but it kills my data. The app has the potential to be the best music app because the music algorithm they set for you is better than Spotify but there’s all these little obstacles that make it difficult to use.
Shouldntneedone - Great app recent update sucks
Honestly loved the app until they made my mix “my super mix” (cheesy af btw).... still no app available for Xbox and constant issues even having my account on it
SP-invest-BR - Garbage
Doesn’t allow to play music when app is in the background
Merlin963 - Not as advertised
Might be good if you want to pay the monthly premium, but free version you device has to be on and in the app in order to work. Drains battery quick and turns off unless you have premium package. Zero stars from me I’d rather have the google play music back.
Stephanie_M_123 - Forced to downgrade from GPM
What a step backwards in having to move to this app from google play. The same functionality does not exist and I don’t understand why there was a forced move to an unfinished app. Worst part of all, I hate that you can’t change the background colour. Black background with white text is so hard on the eyes!!
Aemilius Paulus - Limited on Apple Watch
Contrary to the iOS version, it is severely limited on Apple Watch. At the moment (Oct 20, 2020), you cannot listen to your purchased library without going premium. This is simply unacceptable. I am not interested in Streaming app as I have bought my music collection already.
EvXYaoCat - Your radios always play the same songs!
Can you please leave Google Play Music alone? When I choose a radio on YouTube Music, it always gives me the same songs in the same order 🤦🏾♀️
If I wanted a playlist, I would have done it myself. And everything it’s so complicated, compared to Google Play Music. Gosh I hate this app 🙄
tûpue - Offline mode is terrible
It doesn’t even let you search the alng or artist you want to lisen to. You have to go trough alll of your songs to find it. It is fat from eing convenient lol Do not buy it, not worth it. Google play music was muuuch better.
Scatoclysm - Ads play when I listen to my paid content
I migrated from google play music to YouTube music, as the google apps kept notifying me to do. It moved over all of the songs that I purchased through google play music.
First time I play one of my paid for/purchased songs...it makes me watch a YouTube ad. :|
mmmandel - Subscription required to stream to Chromecast audio devices
Unlike Google Play music, YouTube Music pushes subscriptions even more and requires them to stream to Chromecast Audio devices. Also no easy way to maintain your own music library. The constant upsells to premium are a real turnoff as well.
^Phlebas^ - Poor replacement for Google Music
Recently migrated my Google Music library, including my own uploaded library and have been very disappointed. Guess I have been spoiled by Google Music.
What I really miss:
- Every time I open the app, I have to start over to select what I want to play because the app doesn’t remember last position/ track played. Especially frustrating with my own library.
- None of the queued tracks are listed or played in order of the track within the album, especially in playlists. Tracks are simply jumbled together in seemingly random order.
- Same goes if trying to add an album to a playlist. tracks are simply reordered seemingly at random
- Limited ability to sort onscreen. Seems to be simply alphabetical only. Needs to be able to sort by album while keeping tracks in track order.
- lastly, most definitely wouldn’t pay a penny for this app, definitely not premium just to play my own tracks or the ability to play in the background.
It’s pretty evident how far Google has gone from their principle, since removed, “Don’t be evil”. This app is simply frustrating enough to be considered evilly user-unfriendly.
z3row0rm - Terrible replacement for Google Play Music. Get something else
The interface is clunky. It refuses to download songs when I press the download button. The worst part is you have to pay for the premium subscription to play music with your phone locked. I haven’t put much time into the app because that is a deal breaker. It’s finally time to hop on Spotify or Apple Music, not this.
googabitch - YouTube music
It work really good I am a proud member 👍🏻
thx ghdj - Money Hungry
It’s not good at all, you could just use regular YouTube. You have to pay to play music screen off which is ridiculous.
Cuestrom - Pay to listen to own music offline?!?
I have to pay to listen to my own purchased music library for offline listening (download music)?
Play Music is way better.
ImaLiarLmao - Same complaint as everybody else
If you’re using the free addition, the music stops playing once you put your phone to rest... what?? It’s literally just a second YouTube app. Waste of space.
Dhdhshdbdhsjsndndjs - Waste
Why am I paying for premium? When I turn cellular data off app doesn’t work! Thought that’s what I was paying for???
No work for Canada - Garbage
Not good can’t listen to music and use a different app. Get mixer box 3 can watch/listen to it all for free
Xaghy - Crashes all the time
App crashes like nobody’s business. Whats the point of having a premium account if it crashes all the time. Its more expensive than apple music, or spotify with much less to offer. And it crashes!
Jjppj - Stoopid
Even with premium, you can’t play music when u don’t have connection to the internet.
skittlesocean - Bad

Chef on Chefs Feed - App Needs EQ for Better Bluetooth Playback
Love the app! With certain Bluetooth headphones or using on systems like Sonos (especially with volume limit off) certain hertz to megahertz can either distort music quality or cause trouble with devices trying to understand if music is in mono or stereo. Having an EQ can fix the problem or even having a stereo or mono function would be great. This happens more when viewing videos or music either recorded live or DJ sets type recordings. Most people that upload music use a Y jack that if they don’t select stereo or mono prior to recording, makes the problem worse.
SBR Shooter - The old Bait and Switch...
Starting out, they give you the premium version for 2 weeks, so you can enjoy listening to music while using other apps and also when your phone screen goes to sleep. Once that trial period ends and you are using the free version of the app, you get 15+minute long advertisements and the music stops every 3 songs to ask if you are still listening and forces you to hit the “yes” button. The premium version of this app is great, but making the free version so terrible that it is unusable is a marketing game that I’m just not going to play. This app is worthless to me if I have to constantly interact with it to keep the music playing for more than 10 minutes at a time. And the fact is, that it’s all just a thinly veiled attempt to get you addicted to the convenience of the premium version.
Pretty Hot Thang - Great app! Just Missing a Few Things...
I love this music app and have canceled all my other music subscriptions. The variety is great and it is super easy to use. The only thing I wish is 1) there was a Watch app (I mean, c’mon guys! This should be a no brainer!!! I use this app when I’m exercising and it’s a hassle to have to use your phone to control your music. Abs 2) I wish there was a button to turn off explicit music. I teach a spin class and I’m always nervous about the songs that come on auto play when my playlist ends because they all have cussing in them. Plus, I definitely can play this music around my kids! It should be easier to listen to clean music.
RachelFenton - Google Play Music was better!
Annoyed that I had to switch to this because Google decided it wanted it under the same umbrella. So upon moving my music and playlist over which was easier than I expected that is the reason two stars out of five. Beyond that it’s annoying that I had to redownload my music which should have been automatic. Than when I play my playlist and I go to open the app again it doesn’t pickup where I left off in my playlist. Why can’t it do that like google play music. Another complaint is it likes to offer me suggestions. Great but offer me music suggestions that are close to what I listen to, not the newest music to be added to the app. It needs to be improved soon or I’m looking elsewhere for my music.
TaoGroves - Much improved; still needs more work.
This app has improved vastly since its introduction a few years ago, and is now one of the top music streaming platforms in my opinion. First, Google’s algorithms deliver the best mix of what I like along with new suggestions. Secondly, I appreciate the ability to seamlessly switch between music and videos in the app. Lastly, the offline mixtape is an extremely useful feature. Always having 100 fresh songs in my back pocket for those no service areas is a lifesaver. The app is still a bit clunky (especially the library) but I like it a lot.
bstell33 - Long time google play user
Just started using this because google play recommend i transfer my library. After discovering that google plans on shutting down google play music I made the switch. I am so pleased by this switch. The layout is so much more organized and easy to navigate. I am getting better recommendations and the addition of viewing music videos is awesome. I’m excited to keep using it.
One thing I’d love for them to add/ improve on is their music sharing options. Adding the ability to add songs to your Instagram story or other social media would be sweet.
Budrocket - The app has a horrible radio
This app does music well if you know what bands you like, but the radio feature is bad. If you pick a song or artist to start a radio with then the songs that come up tend to be repeats. Let me explain, if you pick Linkin Park to start a radio with, it will play the exact same songs as an Avenged Sevenfold radio. The app does not offer a wide range of random radio songs to listen to. Pandora does an amazing job at radio as it throws new music that you've never heard of in your playlist. I wish this app did that. If you play Kendrick Lamar then the radio is the same as an Eminem radio song list. The artists are in the same broad music genre sure but their music styles are completely different.
Naked Rayburn - App is constantly buffering
This app is basically okay - except for the constant buffering and waiting for songs. I’ve experienced this even with downloaded playlists. Why would I ever have to wait for downloaded material to play? For that reason this app is pretty much useless. At least on my phone. Interesting that I’m not having these issues with other streaming apps, so I know my internet speed is fine - and I’m seeing these issues over WiFi - not just with cellular data. I have to assume that YouTube’s infrastructure is just so poor that it can’t handle the user activity. Which basically means this app is useless.
wiseleader - WOWed! If you like to hear music from your genre, come here!
I’m not kidding about how I said in the subject of this comment! This is my favorite app for hearing music. If you can pick specific artists that make good music, it doesn’t matter whatever type of genre you want to listen to. This is my first type of app that does know how to suggest very similar music to your current song and video of your choice.
I have just finished my main point of this app and it works well and worth the 5stars BUT I don’t think it that good because the premium version is too much money so it’s worth the 4 stars if you like this app. If this gets a lower price it’s a 5!
greenFuneral - About the new version
So previously I was able to see just songs I’ve listened to recently so I could just refresh and choose from things I know. I use this app explicitly for working out and so I don’t want to be listening to stations and random songs I’m not familiar with. The new update enforces this and I absolutely hate it. I had to start liking the songs I know I would be wanting to listen to, and it takes me probably twice as much time to find something than before. I don’t even scroll down on the main page anymore because it’s full of unwanted suggestions. It’s absolutely garbage and I want the old layout back without all those random suggestions I couldn’t care less about. It was a fantastic app, why did you have to ruin it?
Paint159 - Please include a 'add to queue' or 'play next' button
I love the app, it's the only app I listen to music on. I have no problems with the app, there's just one thing I'd love to have on it for the next update, we really need a 'add to queue' or 'play next' button. I don't like having to wait for the song to end and then click on the song I wanted to listen to next, instead there should be an option when we click on the three dots on the song that will allow the song to play after the current one someone is listening to. I feel like this would really help.
Dub-G12 - My Two Cents
I really enjoy this app. I like how it’s how easy it is to search for different artists and music. I also enjoy the fact of not having to deal with ads or that I can close the screen on my phone without the song stopping. I do wish that the “Your Playlist” would update with newer songs related to the music I listen to on average. It’s usually the same songs over and over. I also don’t like that it will completely change after listening to one type of song. For example, I mostly listen to Rap/Hip Hop but as soon as I play one Disney song for my kids the whole playlist gets flooded with Disney songs.
Grooveshark - Good aside from recent updates
Good app overall but has many issues.
The app used to have a lot of variety in the music and showed a lot of artists I haven’t heard of before. Now the app recommends the same 5 songs every time I open the app. Every time I open a radio off of a specific artist (I listen to a lot of hip-hop and rap) I hear the one song and then playlist of “popular” music. It’s the same line up of songs every time. Frustrating that the slider bar for variety has been taken away, that was a major reason for switching from other streaming services. Being able to change variety allows me to stream music longer, not getting as frustrated that I hear the same songs again and again.
The music that comes preloaded into playlists plays the same songs over and over and over again with no way to remove them. Even if I dislike the song, it will still play over and over and over and over and over. See how annoying it is when it does it over and over again? Yeah.
Aside from these MAJOR issues, not a bad music streaming app.
Kimsters - App Devs making it worse with each update
I feel like every time it receives a new update, this app just gets worse. For example, they recently got rid of or moved the customization option where you could change what kind of music you were listening to to either make it more diverse or exclusive. But now it's gone and I keep getting songs I've never even heard of which I really dislike. Also, was changing the logo to make it dark really necessary? I liked the white colored logo. And please give us the option to actually choose songs to put into our playlist without liking them because whenever I do like them, they always appear. I just want a nice balance for once...
smeags121 - Very frustrating to use
I’m not one to write a review on anything so this shows a lot on how bad this app is. I only switched because google play music was going to be going. If your internet is bad you can’t load anything even if you download the music previously, you have to shut off your internet just to go to the downloads. The app is slow when trying to Navigate through menus. My suggested music should be clearable because I don’t want to see music that I don’t want to listen to. The app itself is such a mess. I am only using it because I don’t want to have to switch to another music app when all my music transferred from google play music. Please fix a lot of these issues cause there is potential but right now the app is frustrating to use, especially with bad internet.
My_Opinion21 - Really nice app
I’ve been using this since I needed more room in my phone, and since I no longer use the iPhone music app itself, it’s a great replacement. I would’ve given 5 stars but for a span of 5-7 months there wasn’t the option to have it ‘play audio only’ which jacked up my data usage as it attempted to load the video versions of songs when I wasn’t parenting the screen. But recently it finally reappeared in the corner of the screen and now the app stretches out my data much further. Please do keep the option there it makes it a lot easier, and a good reason to keep paying for Premium each month.
Elmiloforeal - Great app, very worth it
Worth it just for the ad free audio-only background playing (otherwise impossible on iPhone). The offline playlist is a nice bonus.
Only frustration thus far has been when trying to resume listening after closing the app in the middle of a playlist. There does not appear to be any smooth way to resume where you left off. You gotta open the playlist and find the specific song, there it will have saved your spot. If you open it in your history it doesn’t play the playlist, just that song.
Duckslayet - Bad music app
This app lacks a lot of basic functionality:
-If you switch to another app then return to YT Music it will clear your queue that you were listening to and you have to start all over
-If you temporarily disconnect from Bluetooth (such as getting out of your car at a gas station) when you return and reconnect it will not restart music automatically (if you used another app in the meantime, your queue is gone as well)
-For some reason, your music is divided into two categories (YT Music and Uploads) with duplicate artists in both categories so you have to switch back and forth to find the albums or songs you are looking for
-Your “stations” and playlists are lumped together under “playlists” which makes it very cumbersome to find what you are looking for.
-The recommended playlists and mixes are generally bad. Same when you search for something, you can type in the exact name of a song, and your top results will be similar songs and remixes
-You can not sort your search results, for example, if you are exploring an artist with 20 album releases, you can’t sort them by release year, this is functionality that has been around for 15 years or more
BCW1235 - Frustrating for music collectors
I have a large personal music collection and had previously used Google Play as a “backup” to my NAS music server and a convenient way to access my music remotely on a multitude of devices. I will never buy a YTM subscription.
Beyond the frustration of not having a desktop app to support remote file sync like Play did, the iOS app constantly requires me to select “uploads” at every step to actually access my music. Album art isn’t cached, so scrolling through my collection is slow and buggy. Browsing by “Artist” can also be annoying, as most of the time people actually would want to browse by “Album Artist”, then show Albums within that selection.
Because it’s Google, streaming from their servers is solid.
Potatoman31 - Fix the minimizer
I have had this app for a couple of years now and I think it is really great. I like being able to listen to music that I like when working on homework. Lately though I have been having some problems with the drop down menu to adjust what song I want to listen to next. It will either not let me move the song up or instead after dropping down the menu to pick what song I want to listen to next, it will just minimize the whole screen and take me back to the main screen. I will still be able to listen to the song that I just picked but I won’t be able to change what’s next. Overall a great app, but would like that bug fixed.
jabramomma - Sooooooo.
So I’ve been using this app for years now. I’ve seen it improve over time which I am grateful for as a customer. I even appreciate the fact that you developed a mobile app which Apple Watch users have been waiting for. However the mobile app could be better. It seems to be laggy and a tad buggy. When it first was released I couldn’t even use it because it kept saying it couldn’t connect to my phone. On top of that I would like to see it have some independent functionality. I would like to be able to download music to my watch and use it standalone like you can with Apple Music. If you guys could fix that issues then I would be a super happy camper.
brittanyw1017 - Used to be the best music app...now not so much
I used to love this app and tell everyone about how great it is (was). It was my go-to & i listened to it/ used it all the time. When I loaded My Playlist it always had all my favorite/most played songs, along with some new suggestions. And the playlist would save for several days (I liked to rearrange the songs to a certain order for a custom playlist). Recently the playlists haven’t been saving for even half a day, and now this new update changes so much about the app...it only makes a limited playlist and what it “thinks” I would like...not what I actually do like and want to listen to. Plus now it’s just what songs have music videos & a lot of the songs I like/want to listen to don’t have videos. Guess it’s time to switch to another music app. 😕
Coronaboi602 - Only one recommendation for app dev team
This application is amazing! By far my favorite app to listen to music! My one recommendation is to allow us to remove a song from the upcoming songs on a playlist created by the app. When I listen to a certain artist, sometimes I just want to listen to that artist; I turn the variety of the station off, but I still sometimes encounter a different artist. I still somehow encounter other artists songs. I would like to be able to remove that from what's playing next at my discretion. Also when I am listening to my station I encounter songs i don't really like, would be nice to be able to take them off before they ever play. Other than that, app is perfect.
Also please add a visual equalizer. I wanna see something cool as my music plays.
Another thing that can be added would be give an option to never play “clean versions” of the songs. I don’t listen to that garbage.
Update: This application went from great to garbage. I used to love the less variety feature. Now when I am
Listening to one artist I get other song’s by artist’s that I hate. I don’t want to be introduced to new music. They should of left it how it was when it was first released.
runnisfreek - Google music was way better
I used google music for years with the subscription and loved it and it got better over time and was pretty flawless I would say. I switched over to this cause I was told I was going to have to and I hate it. When you want to start a radio on an artist it works great and then you do it the next day and it’s literally the same exact playlist as before. This never happened on google music. Its like listening to an iPod. You can’t save radio playlist that were created but then again it gives you the same one every time so I guess you don’t need to then. The your mix does the same thing it’s almost the same playlist every single time. I’m not sure why we had to leave google music for this but it’s not even close to the same thing.
automatic lobster - A big step down
I don’t understand how this app is so much worse than its predecessor, Google Play Music.
It doesn’t remember what was in my queue after it’s been closed for more than a few hours.
I can’t see my uploaded music for an artist on the normal artist page. I have to do a search, and click on the uploaded tab. It won’t display albums in that search, just tracks.
At the time of this writing, there seems to be no way to clear the queue. Except of course leaving the app unattended for a while! The one time I don’t want it to clear!
If there is nothing in your queue, as is often the case when I first open it, tapping the menu on a song, playlist, or album and selecting “Add to queue” seemingly does nothing. In the old app it would bring up the player on the bottom with the first song in the queue. Not playing it, mind you, but showing you it was there.
This app gets updates every couple weeks. Here’s what I wonder, what the hell are they working on? It never seems to change for the better!
App devs, PLEASE, do some focus groups and try to make this app live up to it’s potential.
Cherry Glacier - Customer service
I was having issues with my mini player on the app. Every time I minimized a song into the mini player my music would quit playing. It was very frustrating because I wanted to play a song and continue looking for other music on the app which I was no longer able to do because of this issue. I got into chat support with someone from the yt company, explained my issue to him and all I had to do was close my music app then re open it. And the problem was solved for me. So they have great customer support and I appreciate it!!
AmandaLeFevre - Glad they have a trial.
So glad I’m on the trial, so far 5 days in and so many problems. I have about 10 playlists and one of them under “favorites” isn’t on my playlist column but when I listen to a song, it will let me add it to the same playlist. Super annoying. Now I am listening to a a playlist of “hotlist” and it keeps skipping songs in the middle of them because it can’t load produce them for some reason . I have good internet, plugged in to at it at home, my Husband and I work from home so the Internet is A+. Good concept but will be going back Apple Music.
Barb Redgreen - Silly
Whatever it is they are trying to accomplish with this App, it turned out somewhat silly.
First thing when installed, you have to scroll through a long list of musicians most of them I have never heard of, but some of the best aren‘t even listed. This is annoying. I did love my first playlist and hit LIKE on most of it. Then suddenly my music stopped, why? The 1980‘s was an entire decade of hundreds and hundreds new bands every year but you show only 10 of them and just 45 minutes? The recommendations video in the middle of the screen keeps boring stuff I really DISLIKE but I can‘t click them away? I thought this was an App to personalize my music? Any old vinyl record store has better selection than your App does.
Bill Of Port Orange, Florida - One thing I’d like to see.
I enjoy using this app quite a bit, however there is one thing I would like to see in a future update.
Since I’ve been using Google play music for a while, I have a lot of things in my library. I’d like to see a way that we can import or at least have switched over the selections we have in our Google play music library to the library that is in the white team music app.
Other than that, I don’t see anything else at this time that I would like to see changed. It’s been a pretty good app so far and in future updates I’m sure things will improve and get better.
OnaRainbow - Comparison
I loved play music and I understand this is taking it over but, it should at least work half as good. I use my liked music in my car cause it’s quick and easy to access. I do like to shuffle the 460 songs. Although it seems every time I hit shuffle it plays the same songs. Also every time I click on the app it appears to refresh so it doesn’t constantly have it running. Also if I don’t give it 10 seconds before trying to start my playlist it buffers trying to play the songs even though they are downloaded. I’d like it to just be consistent if it’s open on a song it should play automatically when connected to my car just like play music did. Please make it more reliable.
Katana0k - Inconvenient feature locations
I rarely write reviews but this app is frustrating.
So I was forced to download this app since google music is going away. It’s basically the same but all common features are moved to inconvenient locations.
Want to repeat a song or shuffle? Gotta swipe your screen up not once, but twice! Just to get access to this feature.
You know what I don’t need on my main screen? Thumbs up/down buttons. This should be secondary as I’ll only ever need to hit up/down once so it makes no sense that it’s taking up valuable space as a main feature on my screen.
Also, they more want you to build your music list from the app. All the music I’ve bought is on a different screen that take extra steps and time to access.
It’s also harder to find the music I want.
What if I don’t know the album name but I know the artist? Well guess what boys and girls?! You click on the artist and BOOM all their songs are there in one big list.
Google Music was way better and it’s like they thought “Whatever we did with Google Music, we should make it harder and more inconvenient for them!”
Euroclassyman - Too much repeat
I love this app only because you can find music and remixes you couldn’t find on Apple Music. That being said first problem I have with the app is whenever I shuffle my music many times it plays the same song over again instead of actually playing different music from my playlist, secondly it doesn’t even play all the songs it’s as if it likes playing the music I listen to most. And when I try to play radio it plays the same songs I’ve heard before very rarely does it play new music. Debating whether to switch back to Apple Music or stay subscribed. Will give them time to fix this issue, if not then I’m gonna unsubscribe.
Tenanteer - Great app
I like this app but I do wish you could have an album and artist grid like you have for the “Your Favorites” section. You had this same format with Google Play Music - full-on album covers displayed in a grid. The icing on top would be to make it user-adjustable to have anywhere from say, 3 up to 6 albums per row. However, that part is not necessary as long as the album covers your can be fully displayed. The list format you have now is so tiny I have to strain to see it. The list view would make more sense on a phone but for an iPad, you need to take advantage of the extra screen size. Thanks.
locraig13 - Almost
I’ve mostly been enjoying YT Music, recently switched from Music and I have to admit I miss some of the basic features you expect from a paid service. I wish when you liked a song or album that it was added to a library that was organized by “Artists”. Instead when browsing by artist it directs you to that persons’ profile. Lots of content on the app, and the offline mixtape feature has been pretty awesome for me personally. Hopefully at some point we get a more traditional “library” feature, otherwise it’s been pretty top notch and the design of the app is good.
Lukustra - This is no Google play music
Google play want the best music player in the world, but it did its job. it remembered what song/playlist you listened to last after coming back to the app, it let you download music to listen to offline, it let you search YOUR OWN music rather than every song by the artist ever.
This app has a good UI and decent discover/explore pages, that's it. everytime you stop listening to a song, it'll close the app. this is incredibly stupid. the search function just does not work. its very frustrating finding the songs that you added to your library by artist.
I would prefer not to transfer my years and years of music i've gathered to apple music but it might be time.
momoshubambo - Not too impressed with performance
This app works 50% of the time when I need it! I heavily relied on Google Music for accessing my music for teaching (I teach preschool) and it worked every time. This app literally only works every other time I need it. The songs are constantly trying to load (swirly circle loading) which doesn’t work when you’re trying to do a live Zoom class! Please fix bugs! I’ve tried changing back and forth using wifi to just using phone internet and doesn’t make a difference. My phone as well as app are up to date.
My music is all uploaded from old CDs that were given to me so I can’t find them elsewhere. Thanks!
Gabs2m - Details
It’s a little unfriendly. I think there’s a lot of details they forgot: in a pc isn’t the option to download the music or watch a video-music, either the one to order the songs in an alphabetical way. In general: You don’t have an option to download a bunch of songs, you must do it one by one (old-fashioned) ‘cause they don’t put a special button for that so it takes a lot of your time; also there’s no way to share music with someone inside the app (even if you have a familiar plan) like a playlist or listen at the same time... finally, I don’t understand the difference between songs you like and the songs you add. Some of my favorite songs isn’t in the app.
But i love the mixtape they create just for you based on your taste which get constantly better.
Venusvan - Why can’t I see my full playlist
Ok so the part with ads is fine it understandable but why put the long 15 sec unskippable ads it does make sense and what’s the point in needing premium to have background play ITS A MUSIC APP
But this is the most annoying part i have a 137 song playlist and all of a sudden i only see ten of the songs and i can’t remove or check if i removed anymore and instead of my music being there i get my liked playlist new release mix and that personal playlist IN THE MIDDLE OF MY PLAYLIST it won’t let me play my songs and sometimes it’ll just stop playing after 5 minutes of playing music. Please fix this i want to listen to my music.
BadDomino5 - App is great. Subscription fee is too much.
I was a Google user back even before Gmail was invite only, or even a thing. They promised much and delivered, for free. In a world of paying for scant megabytes of email storage, Google stepped up and said well here's a full gigabyte. Revolutionized email. Now, that same company went public and it's greed went waaaay up. The company that gave away gigabytes in a $5/megabyte world is now crippling my ability to play music with my screen off, unless I pony up some cash.
Update — I indeed canceled my subscription. The price is too much and the crippling of the software is too obnoxious. $12+ a month? Nah. If it were $12 as a one time cost, yes. But not recurring cost.
kim the lover 4L - I like the app
It’s just that when u want to listen to music with ur phone off it only gives u a few like weeks or so and then it’ll ask u if u want to start the free trial and if u press the skip trial button it won’t let u go off the app to listen to music or turn ur phone off so u have to stay on the app and keep ur phone on witch I can’t do I like to read Wattpad when listening to music so it’s rlly hard for me to do that if u have to pay to just listen to music with ur phone on and to stay on the app, what will do is make a new google act and then use that act to get back in so I can listen to the music with my phone off but other then that it’s....ok I guess
ampoorcommoner - Doesn’t save last station
On google music all I had to do was hit play on my headphones and it would play the last station I was on. Even if the app wasn’t open. It would also have the last station at the top ready to go. Now I have to find a new station every time the app is closed or it seems after a few minutes of inactivity. Pressing okay on my headphones doesn’t start playing the last station anymore and again I have to find a new station. The last station isn’t anywhere to be displayed at the top or even scrolling down. It’s also annoying I can’t swipe left for the next song and I have to hit the >> for next song. Just use the UI from google music and there wouldn’t be a problem. Love the video options and the lyric display.
SoraiTMNT - Great but needs improvement
I love the way I can click on a song or artist and instantly get others similar to it! However, when first trying to “choose some of your favorite artists and we’ll create an experience just for you!” It’s hard, mainly because there isn’t any way to search for your favorite artists! You have to scroll constantly to find them and I still can’t find my favorite! (All Time Low) it’d be so much better if you could have a search bar so you can instantly find them no problem!
Also, there isn’t a way to repeat JUST ONE SONG (apologies for the all caps, there isn’t any bold or italic options) personally when I get ear worm I like to put a song on repeat until it’s out, but this app doesn’t have that option.
Over all I really enjoy this app and I can’t wait for the next four years of college when I’ll be able to use it for studying and relaxing! I just wish they would change those two things I mentioned earlier
depressed waffle - Good, but could be better
This app is really great, only 2 issues with me. I think there should a feature that allows you to swipe on a song to the left and it will be added to the queue. It takes a while to get a queue without this. And if you accidentally tap on a song while making a queue, it goes away, there should a undo button when that happens. This app is fantastic, but I think the users would go up dramatically if you added these features. Also, one last thing I promise, I can’t turn off restricted mode and it restricts way too much.
Macaroonsssss - I have a suggestion or 2 to make
So, I think that when you have the “Favorite Artist” thing, you should add a search bar so people don’t have to scroll so far to find their favorite artist. I scrolled down pretty far and still couldn’t find my favorites. And when you subscribe to the artist, and they aren’t in your favorites, you should have a way to add them to your favorites. Like maybe a heart button, or a “Add to Favorites” button. And you should let people exit the app while streaming, because sometimes people don’t just have time for streaming and they need to do other things too, but they can’t pay for the premium. Overall it’s pretty good though.
BaileyH4 - Missing great features
Overall, this app is good. It looks nice and is easy to use, especially as a replacement for a Google Play Music. But my issue is it seems to be missing a lot of the features of Google Play Music that made it good. First, you can not sort your playlists; you should be able to view them by title, artist, like/dislike, etc. Second, when you search for an artist and go to their ‘profile’, you should be able to see which songs you have in your library. Third, you should be able to select multiple songs at once so you can remove them or add them to a playlist or whatever you want to do.
ZaZap_Azmordos - Tracking location after pausing that “feature”
Since the last update, every time I power on my iPad, the app icon pops up (when the app isn’t running) with the location services arrow in it’s upper right. I have paused the location based recommendations, but this is still happening. And strangely enough when I look through the app list for Location Services in the iOS settings this app isn’t even on the list.
I know Google is a data thief, but I thought that if you gave your customer the option to turn off data collection, you had to turn it off. And for the inevitable “that data is not sent to Google”, if you really believe that I know of some, prime real estate I’ll sell you (swamp land next to a leaking nuclear reactor).
Time to delete this data burglar.
I_want_to_bank - Oof
This app is just not a friendly user interface. It seems that everything is over complicated in getting to the music you want to listen to. Trying to use this app for music while driving is just begging for an accident as it is so unintuitive, slow to navigate, and has submenus upon submenus with an inability to search within your own library. If you want a song in your library, enjoy scrolling for it forever as this is no quick navigation what so ever. Song starts with a T? Good luck finding it quickly. Other music streaming services are far better from almost every standpoint. Heck, GooglePlay had far better user friendly functionality. Google/YouTube have the resources to do far better than this clunky hunk of junk.
jytfvbjiitdxcbjj - Hate it compared to Google play
Got moved over from Google play. Hate this app. Far more difficult to get to artists in your library and check for music not in your library. While playing an album, it tends to stop every few songs for no reason. With Google play on my phone, my car always picked up where I left off. Don’t even think about using this app in the same way. Playing downloaded music offline is a joke. Every time I stop and turn off the device, it never fails to forget where I left off and I have to go back to downloads to continue. I am considering starting all over with a different app like Apple Music even though it would be a lot of work. I miss Google Play. This app just is terrible. Zero stars.
cassielmcmahon - So confusing
I don’t know how such a big company could come up with such a crappy, confusing, non user friendly app. If you want to “download” music just be warned that you’re not really downloading it for offline listening. I don’t know where it’s downloading too. But then the “downloaded” music that you sat and downloaded over WiFi for hours suddenly un-downloads itself when it feels like it. And this happens over and over and over again. Then you click on your “offline listening” playlist to see what of your music you thought you downloaded is on there. And there is some... 20 minutes max... music that includes your picked songs Intermingled with nasty top hit songs that I would never listen to. I even have no ad listening and This app is awful.
DonDeaton - GPM to YTm
Well. It was a shock. I was worried that my 20k songs in the google cloud would be lost in the ether. I was happy that they were able to transfer them over. All in all I am happy with the service. I would like to see some features though.
1. Being able to edit the metadata for your uploads. This is a MUST!!!
2. Being able to intertwine your library and the music that is coming up when you search.
3. I don’t think all my playlists transferred over. I would do say my Phish concerts by years and make playlists. They are no longer there.
4. I would love to be able to sort my playlists. They should be alphabetical.
