DashnChill - Best App EVER!!
When you tube music firs started I have to admit I hated the app starting a station would only give you eight songs and then it would go on repeat, I got fed up and reached out to google customer support and definitely one of the best customer service ever, the representative that help me out tried everything to figure out why it wouldn’t auto play continuously, finally we gave up and the problem continued, finally google reached out to me again and asked me how my experience with the app was and I was on the verge of canceling my service but the amazing people at google took my threat seriously and fixed the issue right away, now every time I start a station new songs keep popping up, I am definitely a happy customer and will be referring others to google instead of all the other platforms, Thanks Google for fixing the issue I’ am one happy customer who will continue using your services if I had 4 thumbs they’d be way up 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj - So bad
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
MilkmanRulz - Almost
When I first got the App years ago it was great. The app is still working wonderfully when it comes to finding songs, getting recommendations, and adding music to a playlist. And I really like the inclusion of accessing community playlists. What irks me is that I’m having issues editing my playlist off the app. I’ll spend time, kill a GOOD bit of time, editing a playlist and it won’t save! I’ll hit the editing pencil icon, move songs around, hit done, then I refresh the playlist to find that it’s still the same. It’s really really frustrating! And I can’t get continuous play off my downloaded playlists often. It will stop play early in the playlist, or glitch out altogether and stop at one song. When it stops at one song it will usually say, “unable to find playlist.” Really tired of this as well. These really shouldn’t be issues. It’s kind of the core of the App to have these functions. It’s like having a movie service subscription, but you only get to watch on odd numbered days. What’s the point?! Really shouldn’t have to point out that the focus on the developers should be to make sure the core services that the App provides are working as they should. Let’s make sure the App does what it’s advertised to do before we get ambitious.
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.
I still dance - The Power of Music
Music has always been important to me. When I was very young my parents introduced me to Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline along with many other great musicians. They planted that seed before I could talk. Later I discovered Three Dog Night and “Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog,” Neil Diamond and “Crackling Rosie”, (which my mother broke my record because she thought Neil was saying, “ Crabby Old Lady!) Then came “Sugar on Sunday” and “I Think We’re Alone Now”, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult and of course you know the rest! Music has been my best friend throughout my life. It moves me, it motivates me, it makes me cry, “Eleanor Rigby”… I didn’t mean to write a book here, I have made music important to my children (5), and my grandchildren, (11), I am 65 and I plan on teaching my great grandchildren the joy of music. Thank you for all the wonderful music you have given me the privilege to explore and enjoy!
Delta airport - You can listen to music with this
Yes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that
Monolith Soundworks - Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
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!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
C*dot - Great app, big flaws
This is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment.
Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place.
Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are.
Htddddssnrkendjf - Quality of life here is utter garbage
It’s a functional app. That’s the best I can say. Music is stored on here and you can listen to it. The library is about the standard with the bonus of being able to save videos for the tracks you can’t find.
But the good stuff ends there. Opening the app brings you to a home with your playlists. Psyche. It takes you a page featuring “listen again” and auto-generated playlists. You have to click to go to your library, then select playlists or albums from there. It’s not the end of the world but it gets tedious. Speaking of albums, it only registers you as having the album if you save the ENTIRE album. If you just have one song it won’t show up.
The biggest offender is how playlists work. In them you can search for tracks to add or take auto-generated suggestions. However you CANNOT simply go through your library and check every song you want to add. You have to add every single song manually. And it’s more tedious than you can imagine.
WD4L1988 - Okay, but needs improvement
I love how organized the library is but there are still issues that have been problems for years now. When adding an album to my library why can’t we delete individual songs?? It’s time consuming to have to individually add the songs to your library just to be able to delete songs when you please. I may not like a whole album, but I’m stuck with all the songs in my library unless I go one by one adding songs. Also can we have the alphabet and something to scroll with on the side when it comes to artists, songs, and albums? I have so much music and it would so much easier to find stuff if there were scrolling options. And when organizing artists, songs, and albums can we have an option of organizing alphabetically and also by artist? Also there is no way to organize songs within a playlist. Alphabetically, by artist, by album, etc. Simple fixes like these would make this app five stars in my book.
Grizzlemynizzle - This app is below average
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 make 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. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far
NathanFilz - Poor substitute
The company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed.
Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play.
Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer.
Thenewchiken - Very glitchy
Endlessly stuck downloading one of my playlists at 99%. Most of it is already downloaded. Actually sometimes it takes a while to update the playlist and download newer songs. Can’t remove songs from collaborative playlists if not owner. Also it doesn’t always display the right song playing. For example. It’s playing thriller by Michael Jackson but in the notifications it says some other song. Also while connected to my cars aux it always repeats songs at least once. Can’t turn it off even if the setting is off. It’s not always compatible with the Ford Focus software. Also I should mention that I’m on free trial. So basically premium. But it’s not worth real money. Also you can’t search songs in downloaded. For example I downloaded 2000 songs and I want to find music by Yung Gravy, I can’t search for it. Also sometimes the “play next” list is glitched and doesn’t show. Also I made a Siri shortcut where it plays a playlist but it’s the same order everytime. There’s no option to shuffle
Dantee925 - Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this app
The only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth.
Reisenthedos - The new update created a new bug
So, supposedly instead of fixing the “only one song in a DOWNLOADED playlist when not using the app while before driving “ it now crashes in the middle of the first song just when the car is barely moving to a certain speed. It doesn’t do that if your listening to music while working or just chilling, only on a moving car. Also the random button doesn’t really randomize the music in the playlist. I noticed this whenever it lands on certain songs and it starts playing on a particular order. I missed how you can just press the randomizer button to get random songs. Now it only randomizes every other press, losing the point of the button. And when you have the randomize button on and you do something else for a bit before coming back to the app, it’ll unrandomize itself, losing whatever particular order it had when it was randomize. Please go back to the previous patch til you fix this! I don’t like listening to the radio while driving.
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.
Gmannboii - Love it
First music service I’ve paid for and I love it. Even the free version with ads is still more complacent than all the other music platforms, not to mention how it includes free access to any music, the ability to play in whatever order, play next, and many more, all you can even do without paying. That’s honestly why I tried it in the first place because it was already so good free but then the premium makes it ten times better. Love the personal mixes, love the radios, and absolutely love the offline mistake.
However, my one and only peeve is that sometimes my offline mixtape gets stuck downloading a track and then doesn’t finish at all, currently whenever that happens I just uninstall/reinstall. But other than that I’m happy to pay for this music service, something I really never saw myself doing.
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.
Electromagnet83 - Good app. One Dealbreaker Flaw
This app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should.
What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc.
My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service.
Wildcatbill1957 - You Tube music & Music videos
I use this nearly everyday. I was a teenager in 1970, the greatest era music will ever know, I can find all of that energizing music here, on this app. It is rare when there is a signal problem, it does happen but If I put a number on it and the reason Is usually loss of Wi-Fi and I’m usually in the same location when it happens to me. Occasionally maybe twice a week it may stop and it just takes a touch of my phone to restart it all in all its a non issue, if you receive a call it will stop and as soon as the call is over it picks back up where it stopped. I personally love it can’t stump it(I can find about any song I’ve ever looked for. Concert footage fantastic takes me back to my happy place. I could go on but I need to hear some great rock and roll now!
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
Ydhdnw - It was bad, yet i gave it another try, it is still bad or even worst
Ok. Google is a huge company. Their experience that this specific service offers is so inadequate and even frustrating for a company this big. Do not sign up for the “free” month premium tryout. They will charge you a month ahead within a couple of days (you’re basically stuck with it for 2 months, and if you like it, great, but if you don’t, well here we are). And if you do it through iTunes, it is impossible, I mean impossible, to request a refund on google’s platform, although of course google being mediocre and buggy as they are (their stuff is just buggy all the time, they can’t ever charge for it), they do not explain how to. You have to go through iTunes to request a refund. Just listen to their commercials keep clicking in “still watching” buttons which are so dumb, and go about your business without having to pay for Google services with dollars; instead keep paying for them with your privacy, and ad time as you always have done lol.
Raise sell prices - Great app but needs improvement
I love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.
•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.
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....
Jarod SJ - App is good, but far from perfect
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
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.
BklynAli - Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play.
Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before.
How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
Rdzielinski - Why did we get a step down?!
I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around.
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.
Harrison Stephens - App crashes every time I open it
Sometimes I can listen to music for hours and it’s fine but every so often I’ll be listening and then it just repeats the same song over and over, all the other songs in my downloads will just disappear after I clicked shuffle they’ll play for a little bit then it’s just one song can’t skip or go back because it’ll be the same song, or even when I skip or choose another song all others will delete off the list and I just have the one. It’s kind of an annoyance and would definitely like a fix for it soon please this bug has been going on for months now... Edit: Furthermore this app won’t even open up I can’t listen to music at all and there’s no point in paying for the subscription anymore because I can’t use the app. Mine as well delete it and lose all my music and everything I have saved because I doubt once I re-download that A it’ll work again or B I’ll lose all my songs that I once had.
Vwocbw - Aight music app
I use this app to listen to all my music. However there are some songs that aren’t available on this platform but are available elsewhere. But one of the things that bothers me is the fact that there isn’t no features to listen to music on a playlist from oldest added to newest added. Because I don’t want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom of my playlist to listen to old songs I added. Also some other features that would be nice to have is the ability to filter through songs in your playlist so kind of like a search bar or options to help sort by music. Also another thing that would be nice is the option or ability that you can turn on or off to find new music not based on music you listen to already so you can find and explore new music from people you probably haven’t heard of.
-/$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.
Rajohns - Getting Better
This app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars.
For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track.
I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update.
Julzzzzzzjo - Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
Lizzie Licious - If you have premium, just use the regular app
In the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that.
My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT.
Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app.
Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?
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.
Christian369 - Love it.. except
Love everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server “. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list.
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.
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.
JohnEJaan - Excellent App, one small issue …..
This is a great app, has finally tuned into what I really like , love ALL the musical options. But. When I go to add a song to my playlists. I can only add a song to ONE playlist when I’d like to add it to more than one . So I have to keep clicking “add to playlist “ to get this accomplished . Unlike the regular You Tube app, when you go to save a song it gives you checkboxes for ALL your playlists and save for later lists as well .
Hook this up GOOGLE! Give us check boxes , and the options for all our playlist simultaneously until we are “DONE” with the addition to our playlist tasks ! Thanks though, really enjoy soo many options that you tube has . Keep up the good work ! Cheers
Momo Sakura - Could be better
This is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :)
KoobieDoo1* - Too many upsells
The way the music flows is good and how they manage to come up with relevant music is also good. But they’re so greedy with the upselling offers of membership. Not all of us are ignorant to the fact that the ads pay you very well to market their products to your markets so why be greedy and driving us crazy every few seconds to join your membership too. I won’t pay for what you are already getting paid for. It’s the same gripe o have with the New York City mass transit system constantly increasing the fare only to benefit the cream of the crop but the ads plastered all about the trains and it’s stations already compensate for it well. I’m considering using my high classifications to stop all these monopolies. It’s ridiculous how selfish and greedy these big corps tend to be. Who truly is looking out for the everyday person?
Gagey K - Fantastic music app and the only one I use
I love this app and have been using it for a long time but I do have one request, it probably isn’t a big deal for most but I preferred this app over the others because of the way the album covers were presented on a more full screen display. But with recent updates the album cover art has been significantly reduced in size where it’s not very much to look at. I would much prefer there be an option for the original layout where the album art is front and center like before. I feel like the cover art is an extension of the artist and their work and should be properly showcased to those who want to get a closer look at it.
RettopMK - Downloads are a pain
A decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple.
Tiny-Dez - I’m disappointed
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
Rachelvest91 - Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.
The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago.

Siddharthdhar04 - The App is excellent with a few buts
The music app is no doubt excellent when it comes to music and relevant suggestions. The only feature I would like to have added is multiple selection to delete upcoming songs in a queue. Currently user can only remove 1 song at a time from the queue and the queue reloads with each delete. If you try to go any faster while deleting, the app may become unresponsive at times. It is not a big deal breaker but the option to multi select and remove would just make it wonderful
Yakazowski bolinski - Pretty good but a few bugs
So I’ve use so it pretty much exclusively for the past few months and I really like it but theee are a few bugs and glitches.
They come up every so often one of them is if you make a queue of songs and skip one after pausing it the whole queue will be wiped and leave only the song playing,
Another is not being able to press play if you’ve turned the phone off and put it in pocket and pause it when you turn it on the screen will have the menu to play but pushing and button but skip will do nothing.
Other than these bugs I’ve been quite happy with it and am using it as my main music app
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.
DHUN PATEL - Things that are still missing
I have been using yt music from last 5 years. There is no excuse that they provide best recommendations. But still some features needs to be added.
1. Zoom to fill the screen in music video this is still missing
2. Playback speed changer. There is no option for this in application.
3. When you double click on thumb nail of song it doesn’t forward 10 second. Maybe this the only issue in iOS.
Laurie Koudstaal - Functionally fine except for the recommendation system
It’s a fine music player, but having come from Google Play Music, I have to say the recommendation system is not very good. For example:
- same songs recommended over and over
- “tunnel vision” when it comes to artists and genres.
Expanding on the second point, if I like one song by an artist outside of my normally preferred genres, it thinks I want to listen to everything by that artist and/or in the genre. Meanwhile, it happily ignores my 1000s of other likes of a different genre and artists.
Like one song from a movie soundtrack? You must want to listen to every move sound track!
Liked 1000s of early music songs? Got nothing new for you!
For music discovery, this app is not good. I have more luck just searching for what I like.
I guess I wouldn’t mind if I hadn’t had a much better experience with Google Play Music. It’s sad they dropped a superior product.
Oh, I took an other star off for lack of customisation available in the UI. I don’t care about new music by the kids these days. I’m old! Get off my lawn!
Knowsnot - I’m into it
I appreciate the suggestions. My taste is understood by the app. I seem to be able to find everything I’m looking for. I wish I could see a list of everything I’ve listened to in the last few hours. One time I searched an artist let it autoplay but when I went to save a few that I really loved the app refreshed and I never could find again. The artist’s catalogue is vast. Searched for weeks. A little frustrating.
GJBMcN - Improving
As a really really long term user from google music days and as the only music service to step BACKWARDS from streaming quality of 320kbs OR CD lossless and cancelling music sales it gets harder to stay. But over time it’s little tweaks have also made it more welcoming again it’s video or music to playlist integration it’s cover art lyrics and music info integration is better - except for its failure to fully cover a screen size and progressively morph about. The catalogue still big the youbetube premium twofa it’s most attractive feature.
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...
Hidecki - Love it!
A quick and easy way to choose, play and enjoy music for all ages.
As seen evident at work (I’m in aged care) and it’s absolutely magical when you can have a resident singing along with you in joy, when you play their favourite song.
Thanks for helping me, help others enjoy their beautiful memories and enjoy some serene music when required and allowing me a chance to unwind with music from the world over!
Lego fan 2 - This game well music app is terrible
I’m giving this game a 2 because it only works when it wants to it’s the same thing with the super Mario 64 camera basically only only works when it wants to and here’s how it goes how come I can play coconut mall on my iPad then shut the tab and it keeps playing but with anything else it just shuts off completely so that’s one of the reasons next one is it always makes me go to that website well app even though I don’t have it and that’s the only two reasons so you should take that into consideration please do that otherwise I’m giving you zero next time.
Smcisaac - Love it but would like to see a feature added
Would really love to see more support for Apple Watch and be able to (have the option) to stream from the watch. Eg. When going for a run being able to leave your phone behind and just rely on the watch for music. Yes you might increase your data use but here in Australia that’s not really an issue
Brock.Norton - Good, please improve CarPlay
The app is fine, if not needing a bit of polish. CarPlay support is welcome but why oh why isn’t there a button to add a song I’m listening to into my library on CarPlay? You can’t use Siri for that so if you like something in the car what to you do? Please add a + button like Apple Music has.
I can also look at the app on my phone and see several playlists which are simply not there when looking on CarPlay, why? And built in playlists like ‘Discover Mix’ also not on CarPlay unless you’ve listened to it recently and access it from the ‘Recent’ menu.
None of this can be by accident but I don’t get why it’s by design.
I shouldn’t only write the bad things though so good things are:
Cast music video by Airplay which even Apple Music doesn’t do.
Choose between music video or audio on any song (love this).
Would be good to get more Siri integration
Create.a.thing - Great App, but needs Apple Watch Support!
Started using YTM when I signed up for YT premium. Having access to songs both on the YTM and YT platform is terrific! However, YT offline integration with Apple Watch is NEEDED!!!! it’s the only thing letting YTM down for me. Using some really annoying workarounds to get offline music at the moment, and in the longer term may be something that pushes me to a different music streaming platform.
Bass King$$$$$ - Music On this Amazing App.
This app(YouTube Music), is an amazing app where you can find many different music; all different genres and great features. I use this app all the time and it’s never let me down. I honestly rate this app 10/10. I recommend getting this app, getting premium and enjoying listening to this amazing music.
This Music is in a great shape and sounds perfection. MUST GET THIS GREAT APP.
Thisreviewisshit - Help
Not really happy with the app, I used to be able to choose between song or video when I purchased premium music but I have now switched to a family subscription and can’t seem to choose between either as in I no longer have the option to choose.
I’ve had my premium subscription a little over a year and have had no problems but since switching to family subscription there is nothing but problems
Kate abc - It has a bug, a really annoying one
I have subscribed and un subscribed a few times now, I love the app when it works properly which is most of the time but I’ve had an issue which has repeated itself more than once now.
I start to play a song and it plays for for 3-5 seconds then it has no sound for 3-5 seconds… the song plays again for 3-5 seconds then no sound for 3-5 seconds and this repeats itself over and over again to the point where you turn it off because you can’t use the app.
Kicks_33 - Disgusted
Bring back google play music. Or at least let us listen to Albums we have previously paid for in google music player store for free without adds. How can you justify forcing someone to pay a monthly cost to listen to music they have already previously paid for, this is robbery and extremely unfair. And yes I downloaded my music before you shut down google music player, but it didn’t download properly, there are songs missing or songs in the wrong order. I tried several times, but I am missing a lot of songs. Disappointed and disgusted in Google.
Rohan barot - Happy but not satisfied
I am quite happy with the app over all.
Have been using the app for quite a while now but I still want improvement when it comes to song suggestions when I pick one song and most of the times the songs that are repeated after that are quite same I wonder if we can get more combination of similar songs that belongs to same genre that would be good.
Reubenater - Great app use all the time and love it
Love the app however I’m not a fan of the algorithm that chooses the super mix it gives me great music. But it’s all the stuff that I’ve heard heaps of times before, it would be great to get some more songs that I haven’t heard before. Because I rarely get a good song that I haven’t heard yet. Maybe make a discovery mix where you hear songs similar to your taste but you’ve only heard once or no times
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.
Zee2.1 - Great but lost all downloaded tracks
This has been my go to streaming service for music and library is immensely vast than Apple Music . However , after using this service for over two years and having downloaded more than 1500+ tracks , today woken up to all of them being deleted. I have enough memory on my phone and allocated space on the app yet all gone overnight. Vastly disappointed guys! Anyway to get it back?
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.
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.
Stan lee21 - Good app but this bug needs fixing
So a lot of the time if I’m listening to music or leave the app running in the background it eventually pops up with the “are you stil watching?” Thing with the yes next to it, a lot of the time when I tap the yes to get rid of it, it doesn’t work. It’s annoying because I can’t use the arrow to get to the queue of songs that are going to play.
Izzo03 - No resume play
After maybe 20 minutes of a paused song the app will maybe crash or it just forgets everything. You lose the song you were listening to and the playlist goes, you have to open the app again and it’ll send you to the homepage. If you were listening to a large playlist you can bet even on shuffle you will here a lot of the song you just heard.
Michael110029384756 - Puts hated songs in favourite list with no way to remove
This is what happens when they remove the don’t be evil clause.
Also, after migrating from Google play music there’s no I’m feeling lucky button anymore and it’s just playing the same songs. Hard to find new songs based on my likes compared to before. Can’t just tell it to play some music. Much worse experience now.
And another thing, why force us into a video app for music if there is almost always no video, and when there is it’s absolute garbage quality?
C.G6 - Good app
Over all good app but I’d like to see the option to rearrange the songs into different order even after been downloaded & would also like to see the option to download albums but have them go into the download section instead of a seperate section I find going into the album & downloading the songs one at a time quite annoying if there is many songs in the album
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!
ArkadyB84 - Music plays in wrong order via car play
Hi, why the track order of an artist when played on web/mobile differs to the same played via car play device??? On web (or the mobile phone) the tracks played the same order as they listed on top tracks section vs once the artist is selected on car play the order is random - it does not follow any of meaningful order
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.
AshDash243 - Great app but needs a few changes
The app has a few buggy glitches where if you go into a playlist sometimes the pictures to the songs will switch around. There should also be an option to pin playlists to your home page inside the app.
Grrimshaw - Frustrating
When I click to listen to an artist, I’ll be listening and then it’ll randomly start playing other artists. Why? Who asked for that? It doesn’t even go through the entire discography before doing it either - it just does this after a few songs. I don’t want to listen to random artists when I’m in the mood for one particular artists. It also happens with my playlists! If I wanted random songs in my playlists I would add them. Please remove this feature.
Manny man man. - Its good but...
Its great but some stuff is off. Its super glitchy for people sharing a family account. The explicate ‘E’ sign is sometimes off as well, when there is an explicate song but no ‘E’ sign on the title.
I give it a four star though because its a really good music streaming platform and i love music, so win win. 😊😊😊😊
Agagagagshsj - Add the like button to the widget
Love utilising the ytm algorithm with liking songs. I would be ALOT more convenient if the like button was added to the display widget when the phone is locked.
That way you can like songs more readily rather than having to unlock the phone, bring up the app, bring up the song and like it.
J28$ - Please add a feature called sort the songs from latest to oldest
I really love this app but it would be nice if you could add a feature called sort the downloaded songs from latest to oldest. Because when I download songs and i have to keep scrolling to get to my recently downloaded songs. Thank you
_ask1987_ - Worst iWatch app
Probably the worst iWatch app. The song does not sync on app in real time. Takes forever to start the app always stuck on getting playlists screen. Doesn't detect song being played. Volume up down has a lag, that makes it harder to set optimal volume.
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.
Jenji55 - Good music app but bit buggy
So although the app is great and all, one issue I come across is when liking songs they chose to either go to my songs playlist or my like playlist. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s a video or song but if I like a song it’s should go to likes and find easily in a single place.
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!
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
Zohair Ali Malick - A little improvement
Love the app but recently noticed if you are playing from downloaded songs the 3rd song in the list automatically goes into repeat and doesnt switch to next song even if you press next.
Otherwise a huge fan of the app since 3 years now.
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.
Derbzau - Good but could be great
Overall the interface is good. Recommendations are nice but one thing I wish is that when I search by an artist that I can then go in and just browse their discography without it jumping into the first song I have for that artist. Would be great to also have it so each album is separated out easier instead of a massive list of all their songs
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
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
Cursedivide - Can you please fix this
This would be an easy 5 star but if I add a album to my library and don’t like a song on that album I can’t get rid of it please let us remove songs from the album in our library
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 👌🏻
Dexechii_the first - This is not a very good app
This is not the best music app because when I play my music it doesn’t let me play a different game or even turn the device off with out the music stopping. It worked for a small amount of time and I could play any thing I wanted with out adds as well but it’s just not working bad game so bad review that’s it I’ve had enough with this junk on less someone fixes this.

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
Googabitch - YouTube music
It work really good I am a proud member 👍🏻
Israphe - Money
I like how it functions but not how you need to pay for everything like listening to it while it’s closed
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!
_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.
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...
Original Oracle - Too Costly
Too much $$$ to make this app functional
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!
Gvhgdbnuy1234 - Update
I used to use this app daily, I sat through all the adds, left the app open etc so I could do my schoolwork. I’m most likely going to delete it now. They just updated it so you can’t pick which song is playing next, everything is a “radio” now. Previously I would have given it 5 stars, not being able to close the app without paying is annoying but made sense. They need to make money somehow, but this is going too far, I switched from Spotify because I could choose the song. I am a musician and not being able to pick the song so I can play with it means this is useless now. I also have mental illnesses and certain songs calm me down, certain songs help me do work etc. Now I can’t pick, I would happily change my review if this update is reversed but for now it’s staying.
Dmdsoftware - No background play in Canada
They said they’d release background play in Canada on nov3. Updated and no background play.
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??
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.
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.
Mikewolo - So much worse than Google Play
The most frustrating thing is that it never remembers the song I left off at and then I have to navigate a 200 song playlist to figure out where I was. This is made worse if you shuffle a playlist. For the love of god please track the song position in iPhone storage so it can resume where I left off.
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.
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.
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.
Snygly - 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.
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
Nessa.eve - Disappointing Transition
Was forced to transfer to YouTube Music from Google Play and I hate this new app. The interface is totally chaotic — it’s difficult to narrow down navigation and it’s too stimulating, even with the black background. I don’t like how other users personal playlists are mixed with YT Music’s playlists, and I don’t like how my own playlists are mixed with premades. I also don’t care for the videos. If I wanted to watch something, I’d go to YouTube... I don’t need the prompt to watch.
I also just spent 10 minutes reorganizing a personal playlist by artist’s name and when I exited, it completely reset. Waste of my time. Even the web-interface sucks. You can’t sort your playlists by title, artist, etc.
I liked how Google Play had genres, moods, decades sorted — this new way has no organization and less channels. I pay $15 a month for my family to use this app — it certainly doesn’t feel like it comes from Google.
Awesome girl 😘 - Terrible !!!
I used to love YouTube music and used it all the time now with the updates I don’t even get to control the music I listen to??? Sure I get to close the app and still listen but I don’t even like what I get to listen to. This is just terrible..
Ojy86t - MONEY
This is proof that google has been bought out by EA
Hihohiho34 - Worst version of Spotify
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
Pink girrafe - was good
was a genuinely good alternative to spotify since without premium you could LISTEN TO THE SONGS YOU WANTED TO but now it just plays a random song no matter what you click unless you spend money sigh back to soundcloud once again
Îso - Spotify ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify Spotify
Dragon of Air and Fire - Not working as expected
Click on song. Get random other song. Deleting 2 min after installing.
Music_lover225 - Not even the track I want!
When I click on a song, I plays something totally different, from a DIFFERENT ARTIST. Do I have to absolutely pay premium to have the basic? Why bother when I have iTunes. If I want a specific song that isn’t there I’ll go on regular YouTube.
Froggy friend$$$ - Why do we need to pay to listen to music?!
Horrible app music helps me stimulate and I am not paying 160 dollars just to listen to musicians😡
Uhaleks - Awful music
Awful app messy layout too much to look at all at once messy uncontrolled selections always making you listen to artists that pay for views I don’t want to give sympathy to pathetic artists that don’t deserve any recognition everything is drugs and sex it’s disgusting awful truly awful app
Barack Hussein Obama II (real) - absolute dogwater without premium
without premium this is literally just youtube except it only has music, and i can’t play any songs i like because it just puts on a bunch of related songs the moment i select something. there are no advantages to this unless you use premium. you can’t even listen to music without the app open, which just completely defeats the purpose of having a music app in the first place. unless you’re willing to waste money on premium when you could easily just go to spotify instead, there is absolutely no reason to download this app.
Xxxxyzzzxxxxyzz - Yikes
If you asked me a few years ago to rate it, i'd give it 5 stars. Now in order to do anything you need to pay for the subscription. Waste of my time.
Peobe 778889 - New updates make it awful
Following the standard of Spotify, YouTube music makes you listen to whatever song they choose for you unless you upgrade. You can’t control your play list, or even if you listen to your actual playlist as they add in other songs. It’s full of ads and is just generally terrible. The paid version only offers what the free version should.
Instead of competing in a market they’ve lowered their standards to meet the base of what other apps are doing. Gross.
SerenitySkye613 - New update Ruined the App
The update from 19 March 2022 completely ruined the listening experience. I didn’t mind the ads or the requests for upgrade, but now whenever I click a song it takes me to a radio of that artists songs instead of the song I want. No longer can see what’s going to play next. No longer can listen to the music I liked. No more shuffle on the list that I created. Why bother using this app at all now?! Should just make it an app only available to youtube subscribers if you’re going to take away all functionality. Completely useless app now.
Pu55y d3stroy3r - You need money for this app
It’s like asking if someone if they want a certain food, they agree, and you still say you don’t want it. Oh you wanted to listen to this song? That’s too bad because you don’t have premium.
Bob9378925592016194 - It was good
Since the new update you can’t listen to the song you choose and instead you start a radio? But we can have background music. but overall 1 step forward 2 steps back
Xuiigoldenboi - The new update is terrible.
Bring it back to when it was free of your choice to play whatever you wanted! We didn’t really care for ads but I guess that’s what caused this update for money huh :/
Bigman 1146764 - Horrible app
Most horrible app for music you can’t pick a song. you can only turn on the radio now so you can’t listen to the songs you want so what’s the point in having a search bar
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.
Emerald Dream - Liar
Promised to include free background play for Canadians beginning Nov 3rd 2021, 2 days have passed, still nothing happened.
Ali_Cro_and_co - 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
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.
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. :|
