Background resume skips audio  CyberData4  1 star

Sloppy to release a music app with such a terrible bug. Resuming from background should NEVER result in skipping audio.


Please fix the “sticky” icons.  Rocky7302  3 star

Too many times when I’m simply scrolling through the feed a video will be selected and begin playing without my intention. It happens a lot.


Some features request:  philipsism  3 star

1) Lyrics on App, web. 2) Lyrics option when casting on TV, for a Karaoke-like experience. 3) A fourth tab “Charts”, to see what’s treding globally, and by country. 4) Make official Album songs the default, instead of the audio from official videos, covers, or live versions. 5) Social sharing and public profiles like in Spotify.

I’d love to review it...  Yes I Write Reviews  1 star

...but the app upon loading will greet me with a “Sign in error” message that loops so fast that it doesn’t even give me a single chance to sign in. This app won’t let me give it a chance, so it doesn’t deserve one

Won’t let you exit the app to continue playing your music, to do so you have to spend money. Also there are an excessive amount of ads. I found a music app that’s free, has only picture ads so you can still hear you music, and lets you play music outside of the app/ even when you slide your phone.


How cool  NickNickT  5 star

I love this!!!

What is going on  Gage Sorchilla  1 star

When I first got the app I could listen to music when my device is off. Today though when I started playing my playlist and shut my device off it stopped. I tried it several times but the same think kept happening. If this is supposed to happen I will delete the app. Because there is no difference from YouTube. Please stop or fix this.


All good  007jules  5 star

Love the real music...,


You are doing it wrong again !  flyfirstmars  2 star

How do you compete with Spotify or Apple Music, without playlists and proper “personalized library”. I feel like people at Google don’t even use the service to understand how crappy User Experience it has. Also, why on Earth it doesn’t roll out to 100+ countries right away?


No Airplay support  Balantrapu  1 star

common google set up. i don't see a way to stream music over AirPlay. whats the point of this app when it cannot do basic streaming support, although YouTube got it. why can't Google be consistent across their apps


Mostly great  GameWiz_1305  4 star

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

You can’t stream and if you want to download anything you have to have YouTube red just go on YouTube.


Dodgy and will scam you  Maddogmillionaire12345  1 star

Started getting ads and the app would stop working when closed 3 months ago, enquired and received NO response. Followed up again and they tell me I'm getting billed TWICE.. $13.99 from iTunes and then $12 from YouTube red... FOR THE SAME SERVICE. Yep I've been paying $25 a month for something that doesn't work. Followed up again and they just told me to contact iTunes. How about give me a refund for billing me TWICE and not even supplying the service? Will never use iTunes again. Pulling all the work accounts. Never will recommend to friends or family. Spotify is the superior app in this case people. YouTube red - maybe change your name to something that isn't so similar to redtube. Dodgy.


Sight and sound  Countrylad58  2 star

I downloaded the app, selected basic Option, played part of 1 song and uninstalled it. As a blind user, I don’t want to use data for video.


Create a queue feature  Billya1999  4 star

Would be much easier to select songs I wish to listen to if had a queue feature

fck you youtube

Where’s my refund?  fck you youtube  1 star

Said nothing about payment when I downloaded?! I want my money back


disappointing  Anita.rogers2004  3 star

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

Review YouTube Music  Michael’s App Reviews  3 star

I’d start with saying this app is amazing and pleasant to use. The ability to gather music that you can’t get on any other platform is amazing and what attracts my interest. There are a few things I’d like to see in the future of YouTube Music. Starting with Audio Quality levels, knowing that most competitors have 320kbps Audio is annoying, from my understanding I think Audio improvements and being able to change the kbps options besides the video quality, maybe focus more on the audio side, something to consider implementing in the near future. Second I’d like to make it more simple to view music by using tabs like Artist it just seems a bit whacked for use at the moment, still usable of course but it could be improved. Reading Data on USB cord inputs, when using YouTube Music app most USB input sources I have used don’t work or struggles to obtain music data to display even though it doesn’t seem like a major issue right now having better USB input would be more effective for using. Besides that I’m proud that music is one of YouTubes main focuses and I’m looking forward to future updates and improves in the application.


Great app  Cimtac  5 star
