iOS Lock screen access
by IANaMERRILL on 2020/11/27 20:43
Where is the app control for the lock screen??? I would very much like to control the app and chromecast audio from my lock screen like Spotify allows. Google Home app media control as well as this YTM app needs lock screen access to iphone/iOS volume control PLEASE!
Useless
by fhhbsbdbdhxdjdi on 2020/11/27 19:16
So now I have to dig deeper into my own account just to find the music history I’ve been listening to. If it was a feature YouTube decided to change, it’s worthless. It used to be 2 clicks away now it’s 5
Wonderful

YouTube music
by peosper agent on 2020/11/27 08:07
I like streaming music because my phone is always with me . I started with a few selections and in the last 3 months - they have downloaded 6-8 discs that are a combination of my selections and music that is similar and they added discs that are specific to the kind of music I like when I’m falling asleep. They also add new releases albums that I like. I have only music - listening with commercials is terrible LS -2020- Dallas
✨No✨
by NEPH BOI on 2020/11/27 06:42
When I first started my free trial ended and what’s the point of YouTube music of you turn your phone off and it stops!
Let me listen to music outside of the app.
by fire_wizard_9000 on 2020/11/27 04:41
The subscription model is abhorrent due to the requirement to regularly pay them to listen to music while doing things! Ghuuggh!🤮🤮🤮
Important feature does not work
by Fordman555 on 2020/11/27 04:05
I like this app. The look and feel is great. Unfortunately the “add to que” function does NOT work and it almost makes the app not worth subscribing to.
Wow
by deon is to amazing on 2020/11/27 02:52
The only problem is that we have to pay to listen off app like what’s the point off this app then I’m jus using YouTube for now on
I used to love it
by mal4563 on 2020/11/26 23:31
I used it before it merged with Google Play music and now it glitches all the time. Like I can’t even edit my queued music. It’s awful
I want a repeat option!!
by MaSangetti on 2020/11/26 22:37
Don't get me started on the autoplay nonsense. I mean, of course I wanna listen to upbeat country immediately after soothing indie 😒 But real talk I want a repeat option. Sometimes my whole DAY is A SINGLE song!! Without this I'm going back to apple music.
Hate the ads and refuse to pay
by DS5584 on 2020/11/26 21:47
I miss google music with passion. I don’t like that now if you don’t want to hear annoying ads after every song I have to pay. Deleting and suffering the lose of my music I paid and collected along the way over years . RIP google music you will be missed
I’m over this
by Dinnnnnni on 2020/11/26 21:17
Bring back google play... YouTube music still needs work
YouTube Music you control
by courtoflaw on 2020/11/26 17:50
Great app but we know these guys are pros, maybe a bit overpriced, though. $12 seems a bit much when other, more seasoned music apps offer subscriptions for less. Somewhere between $4.99-7.99 seems more reasonable.
This app is a failure
by Hpwillbe on 2020/11/26 17:11
Irritating experience if you are a free user. Ads galore and doesn’t play music in the background so forget about using it in the car, you will go nuts and ram into someone either out of frustration or trying to mess with the clunky UX. Google is letting this user-base roll downhill.
Classical music at its best!
by Maryblueiris on 2020/11/26 14:30
I am a lover of classical music. Have explored many avenues for streaming classical music. Youtube Music is by far the best! It seems literally every composition and artist is available. And the sound quality is wonderful! I have finally found what I need.
Chillin
by Manclovio on 2020/11/26 13:33
Have had many platforms for music but I have really enjoyed this set up and how great YouTube keeps track of your likes in your own playlist easy access to download your favorite jams
Glitch or problem
by its Mr Wave on 2020/11/26 13:04
Same Thing happened to me I never subscribed to YouTube music premium and it signed me up for it I’m NOT going to pay for YouTube premium
Waste of time
by jbaker73 on 2020/11/26 12:31
We got rid of google play for a worst app They want you to pay money to get what Google play was and if you don’t play it’s basically just another YouTube app.Please add in the middle of the songs but also likes to pause or buffer repeatedly it makes listen to music and pain download Pandora or something else they really messed up by getting rid of Google play
Downloading music
by jackieortiz24 on 2020/11/26 08:47
Loved google play music and switching over is fine the only thing is downloading music, I miss the feature of just adding music to my library and it would download instantly. I wish that would happen because the lags of when music isn’t downloaded is very annoying and doing downloads manually, every single song one by one or album by album is annoying. Just a little disappointed.

A thing that would be nice
by PoisonWolf777 on 2020/11/26 06:50
If you were able to like on normal YouTube slow down or fast forward songs cause sometimes they sound better that way
Get YouTube Premium with this
by crunchyrollreccomender468 on 2020/11/26 04:05
I’m bored during quarantine and always watch YouTube. But the ads are so boring and annoying. So I got YouTube Premium. And it comes with YouTube music so any song on YouTube 🤩🤩. Get it if you listen to music and watch a ton of YouTube.
Amazing app
by BenJAMIN5150 on 2020/11/26 03:34
I always revert to YouTube for any music needs. From oldies to today’s classics. Thanks YouTube.
Horrible
by CWayne234 on 2020/11/26 03:13
I’d rather use Google Play Music than this crap.
Loveee thissss
by lizzy1000001 on 2020/11/26 01:53
I love this premium is so worth it but I won’t be able to use is soon because I use a gift card and I don’t have a card 😢
Pathetic
by gurmeetb on 2020/11/26 01:25
why would someone push music app which cannot run in background. This app should be flagged as Paid Only so users don’t downlod it mistakenly considering it is music app.
Battery killer, terrible app
by Notcool11 on 2020/11/26 00:35
Google play music was so much better. No ads when listening to your own library and no need to have the screen on when playing. I could stomach ads, but needing to have the screen on to listen to music?? That doesn’t even make sense. Google started out with a motto of “don’t be evil”, how far they have fallen from their own standards.
Joy
by Shirack19 on 2020/11/25 23:42
Just an awesome app,,, very entertaining 😍
probably the best music app just needs a few fixes
by zenonej on 2020/11/25 21:57
Only reason it’s better because it has way more music from artists including both albums and mixtapes. Sound quality is just as good as Apple’s and better than (sorry Jay Z) Tidal and Spotify. So do your own comparisons; icompared G-Herbo/Southside’s song “Some Nights” and the song is rich on Apple and YouTube music unlike Tidal and Spotify. Well worth the extra $3 best value imo just needs to be as simple as Apple Music and organized as them as well because the organization on this app is all over the place. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Please fix
by gjchxh on 2020/11/25 21:54
I can usually put on a song and shut it off but now i cant please can u fix it please
Cancelled my membership to increase price

They just cancelled my membership I had for $9.99 and now they want me to pay $15.99. Nope.
Horrible commercials
by trbeizbq on 2020/11/25 21:18
Horrible disgusting lesbian commercials. Deleted the app. Never want to see that. Garbage.
Widget broken in iOS
by Accidental Angel on 2020/11/25 20:40
I’ve tried restarting, reinstalling, etc. to no avail. Widget just shows blank placeholders where content should be.
it’s a scheme
by maldeave on 2020/11/25 20:17
You literally have to keep paying to listen to music ad free and the songs you’ve downloaded while on premium isn’t available until u renew again . Don’t waste your time downloading unless you plan to pay forever .
Download Radio Stations!!
by Armeniandave on 2020/11/25 16:21
Edit 2: Still massive CarPlay issues! This is an amateur app plain and simple. Google should be ashamed to make this app with so many bugs. You really screwed this one up!! Edit: New issue now on CarPlay. Try to skip song and it does on the display but the music didn’t actually change!! So many bugs!!!! Come on Google get your crap together. Should be able to download Radio stations. Was one of the best features of google play music. If this is a replacement then make it at least as good!
Poor performance, lacking basic library navigation features
by chrnola on 2020/11/25 13:54
Having this app open and just browsing through songs makes my phone physically warm to the touch. The only way to browse downloaded songs for offline use is...by album? What? Library lists are loaded lazily, so there's no fast way to scroll through them (I have about 60GB of downloaded songs, so this is far from ideal).
a little problem
by melina.x on 2020/11/25 05:18
So a few days ago it was working well, it let me go onto different apps while listening to music but today its not letting me go on different apps while still listening to the music. like it stops
no
by Hejsgisgekah on 2020/11/25 04:33
i dont see why we have to pay so we can listen to music without being on the app? I jusy want to he on other apps while listening. I would use spotify but i want to be able to pick what song i want to listen to and be able to skip as many songs as j want. Not just 6
VIVA LA GPM
by B3NUTZ3RNAM3 on 2020/11/25 04:25
Where do I even begin with this app?Searching never defaults to uploads, which is what I always want to do. Scrolling takes forever, which makes the terrible search interface the only option. Albums sometimes get split and you can't fix the metadata or rejoin them unless you delete it and reupload it. I can't listen continuously in the background without paying for premium, so I can't use it while driving or running, (and I've even heard you can't use the free version with Chromecast, which is literally the only reason I bought a Chromecast: for using it with my GPM because there was no GPM app for the Roku). This makes this app almost worthless to me. Also, although not strictly related to this app per se, it is worth noting hire much of a pain it is that I have to switch between my branded account for regular Youtube viewing and listening to my music on my regular Google account on my desktop with no option to transfer everything so it's just on one account. Yes I know about container tabs, but I still haven't figured out how to set those up properly and it makes me have to sign in twice (with full 2FA) rather than just clicking to switch accounts. Any way you slice it it's a pain. This app is light years behind where GPM was even though that app was buggy as crap on iOS. On top of that, I don't see why I should have any faith it'll be around long enough for these problems to be fixed before it too gets the axe knowing the "Don't Be Evil"™️ company. It's only a matter of time. I'm going to use the default iOS music app and just keep YTM around as a backup for the time being.
Fix the Widget Already!
by OnlyTony441 on 2020/11/25 04:13
Why does the widgets not show the proper Playlist Artwork?? Instead it shows the first song on the playlist which is completely unusable for trying to hop back into a recently played playlist. Along with that why can’t I edit the Playlist Artwork?? So many basic features missing that other music services execute flawlessly!
It’s good
by jes_891 on 2020/11/25 03:11
I like it cause I can listen to music and do other stuff on my phone. Like hw.
Like a better version of Spotify for me
by Ow My Hands on 2020/11/25 02:35
It's a few more bucks, but Youtube Music/Premium is worth it, I think. It's Spotify, with the nice find-your-type-of-music algorithm, a big selection, a comfortable dislike-unlike system, and personal playlists. What makes it different is that it knows your Youtube history so it'll make smart music suggestions based on the music videos and such you've watched.

Can’t use it
by Fran Hollen on 2020/11/25 00:49
Keeps bugging out every time I try opening it. “Sign in error” pops up and then flickers in and out and everything else is a blank screen. Cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times from App Store, tried updating my phone. Nothing works. Really wish you didn’t take over Google Play Music. Never had any issues with them.
Let me adjust the volume of connected Google Cast devices.
by JMR-V on 2020/11/25 00:43
Add volume slider to adjust the volume of connected Google Cast devices (including groups). Also, have music that is casting appear on the iOS Control Center media player section.
Are used to think it was good but it’s bad now
by rayne the brain on 2020/11/24 23:45
So are used to love it cause I can find like music songs and like do you lyric pranks wow I am off the app but that was used to now it’s saying oh you have to get a free trial to do it and that’s horrible it used to be awesome I don’t know why you guys change that you guys are stupid
Won’t hold place
by DWJohnson88 on 2020/11/24 23:38
This app is great like the option to watch videos on it and how you can see the lyrics. The playlists and radio stations are pretty good too. The only complaint is that when I close the app out I have to start over with my playlists or stations and can’t start where I left off. I’m constantly getting the same 10 songs cause I have to start over every time.
If you don’t have a subscription don’t use this
by clw1115934 on 2020/11/24 22:22
Constant ads between songs, constantly asking if I want to start my free trial, and still not able to play music with the screen locked. Google killed Play Music so they could serve more ads on this garbage platform.
Deserves negative rating and immediate removal from App Store
by Wilson Hoops on 2020/11/24 21:22
Another cash grab by Google for your data. Can’t buy individual tracks, must stream. If you’re a Google employee, shame on you.
Stupid
by dygyjguyt on 2020/11/24 20:27
Yea so it’s kinda good but when I exit the app music still plays and I like that but then of course it stopped doing that 😑
Please please change the volume slider
by Kc surf on 2020/11/24 20:12
Please make the volume slider like every other app. It takes forever to change the volume. The increments are so small in adjusting volume. Great app other than that
Please read
by Like86cool on 2020/11/24 19:31
I love YouTube music especially with premium. It’s fantastic. However, the new update which got rid of the mixtape button has been a huge disappointment. Before I could press one button and have a whole station of music I like start playing automatically. Now it takes me to a playlist and I have to press play or shuffle. I preferred it the other way much better especially when I wanna get into my music quickly. I recommend making this an option or just making them two separate things. The mixtape was my favorite feature of the app, sad to see it completely gone.
I want to play MY MUSIC only
by johnny blanch on 2020/11/24 18:35
You know we already have an app that will play YouTube songs.I was hoping for an app that would play my library. This app makes it way too hard to play my music. It keeps skipping back to YouTube songs. Could we please have an aspect of the app that would only play MY music?
Highly Recommended
by MassMinnie on 2020/11/24 18:27
The only place I go to when I need a good vibe and the music is updated regularly so you don’t have to listen to the same songs!
It's a love hate relationship
by BadDARKHUNTER on 2020/11/24 17:56
So I like the YouTube music app and I see they are adding more features to it. The one thing that gets on my nerves is the fact that the app "resets" Everytime. Meaning say I'm listening to a generated mix like "my super mix". I'm enjoying the playlist but I pause it to do something else or whatever. After a couple days the app essentially closes and I lose that playlist. This is annoying because Google music didn't have that. I could close Google music and go back to what I was playing whenever I wanted. Furthermore, YouTube music seems to have the same issue I had with Google music were songs I like aren't being recorded. Like I will give a thumbs up to a song and that song could come back a few days or weeks later and it's as if I never listened to it because there is no thumbs up mark. Some times it works some times not. Additionally, when you hit start a radio I wish it asked you if you meant to do that. Because there has been times I accidentally start to play a song and I can't go back to the previous song/playlist. It would be great if I could get a prompt confirming if I meant to select something (you can put the settings the ability to opt in/ourtof that prompt). And if I don't like the playlist or whatever if I can just go back to what I was previously listening too. Lastly, the biggest feature I miss is the played times indicator. This is crucial when listening to say a podcast like ASOT (a state of trance) with2 hrs worth of music. In Google music I looked at the played count to see what was the last song I listened too. In YouTube music I don't have that so I can't tell. Frankly I wished they had all the functionality of Google music mapped over before they started decommissioning Google music. Because right at the gate YouTube music didn't even have the ability to repeat a song without you having to rewind it, like they recently added that button. I think the migration left much to be desired.
Super dope, would recommend, minor complaints
by dmj26753 on 2020/11/24 16:46
Overall super dope, only complaint is how clunky offline play is, feels like I have to wait forever for it to realize it’s not connecting and recommend me offline play. Once we get there seems to work well. It’d be nice if default was “song” instead of video too, cause I don’t always have good signal. But the app is great cause I listen to a ton of music from YouTube and it auto compiles on this app so I don’t need to go find them in YouTube.
Chrome cast
by blahhhhhhhhh! on 2020/11/24 16:43
Removing chromecasting for free like google play is extremely disappointing. Not using app anymore
Not Nice..
by Vicktannie on 2020/11/24 16:26
At first.. Ok.. I was excited by having it! I get to listen to my favorite music, Without using YouTube and I get to leave the app! Then.. an Update comes, and I don't.. get to Listen to my Music and I have to Stay on the app in order to listen to what I want.. IF I have to do that.. Im better off using Youtube!! BY ITSELF. I don’t like the way I have to leave the app and PAY in order to do listen to what I want.. If you could, take off where we have to STAY on the APP in order to listen to music. Thank you!
Great app for music but
by Rubiotried on 2020/11/24 15:03
I just wish that the algorithm that it uses to find new music or for radio stations was a lot more diverse. I’ll end up listening to the same ten songs instead of introducing new songs that are the same type of songs that I play on the app. I also wish that they could make it easier to add music to a playlist. Anything other than that, it’s great, downloading music is easy and I can find all type of music that I would find in YouTube.
Terrible Performance
by IVIauricius on 2020/11/24 14:51
Whoever the engineers on this project are, y’all need to get them into a memory management course ASAP. This app crashes so much in my iPhone SE it’s almost like it’s intended purpose is to not work. When it’s not chugging along while scrolling it’s more than likely relaunching because it crashed while scrolling. I don’t understand how Tidal is producing a better performing app than Google.
Ruined it
by Kat_420_108 on 2020/11/24 11:30
They ruined it with updates now my playlist don’t play ANYTHING I like
Kinda wish I could listen offline
by girl from other dimension on 2020/11/24 05:41
I usually don’t complain about not being able to listen offline but there are songs I like that aren’t on apps that I can listen to offline that are on YouTube and usually the music from YouTube is put into this app and I don’t want to have to pay for premium so I think it be better if you made listening offline free.
App switch
by Shamelesd on 2020/11/24 04:40
I had google music and was switched to you tube. I was familiar to my google music. The YouTube music app is good. But still preferred the google play music
Get paid version or quit this app
by Yulenka06 on 2020/11/24 04:18
They want you to get paid version otherwise this app is useless.
Spotty
by ShadowSkill1114 on 2020/11/24 03:51
At times when watching videos if you skip two or three songs the video will do the stop and go while the audio keeps playing. And if you minimize the screen sometimes you can’t go back to full screen. Have to close the app repeatedly to fix the issues. Please help. I dropped my google music app to keep this one. I really don’t want to regret making that decision.
Great except one flaw
by kakrohn123 on 2020/11/24 02:53
Great except one flaw. I cast music videos from my iPhone 11 to my Roku TV every night before bed. It works great, until it plays a song with no video. When this happens, the music stops playing and you have to manually skip to the next song & also make sure you hit the video switch at the top because it won’t switch back automatically. The settings have an option for no videos, but why not an option for only videos?
You tube music is the truth
by WaxxWorld Ent on 2020/11/24 02:32
Man this app has completely transformed my work outs I can customize my playlists to fit what ever it is I’m doin and how I’m feelin for that day I personally couldn’t ask for a better music platform 💯
About it

It works :)
by "insert relevent meme here" on 2020/11/23 22:58
It works It’s made for music And it does it’s job of playing it I like how once your playlist is finished it recommends you songs you might like. And sometimes I do like them.
I love this
by klywhtevr on 2020/11/23 21:40
Using YouTube for music at work and it’s fantastic! I have Apple Music but it’s nice to just log into my account and have all these playlists whenever I need something to keep me productive!
Skips songs
by shshdbcnekkez on 2020/11/23 19:52
My only problem with the app is that if a song I want won’t load, then the app just keeps going through whatever playlist I’m in until it finds a song that will. Super annoying but otherwise I haven’t had any issues
Shuffle 400 songs?
by JRRetz on 2020/11/23 18:09
Youtube Music “hahhahaaaaa!!! I’ll play 4 songs over and over no matter what you do!” I want Play Music back already. Really though, I can listen to a playlist or artist in “shuffle”. Quit and start over and it plays the exact same “random” songs I just listened to. It’s like shuffle is a preset cue of songs, there is nothing random or shuffle about it.
Cannot look by alphabetical letter
by KayaCuddy on 2020/11/23 17:10
There’s not an option to find a song that you have saved, and want to search it alphabetically. You have to keep scrolling through ALL of your songs rather than hit J on the side of the screen where the alphabet is located, to search by the beginning letter.
It’s so annoying
by jsbdhdnd on 2020/11/23 16:36
Like after a year month idk it let us play the music with our phone turned off or playing another game now it asks us for premium like- I don’t have enough money -.-
Review of Excellency
by Leprecgaun13 on 2020/11/23 16:26
When I had first purchased YouTube Music, I thought it would be like any other music application out there. I have had Spotify, Apple Music, and plenty of other music programs in the past. I honestly think YouTube Music tops them all because of the simplicity they offer. YouTube makes it incredibly easy to find the song, genre, or artist you like with little to no information provided by the consumer. If you like a song, your other favorites are not too far away. Their App is incredibly easy to use, and I often find myself finding catchy shortcuts. Anyway, I love music and I wanted to thank you all for making that both easy and affordable for myself and others.
This app cannibalized a good app
by no!!!!!!! my name is nunya on 2020/11/23 16:01
Google play music was easy, simple, bug-free, and now it has been killed by this horrible monster because YouTube wants to justify making it. I guess not enough people downloaded YouTube music because now if I want to keep the music I paid for I have to. Disgusting. Edit OCT 2020: I have been trying to use this. You have to dig for your own music through a bunch of garbage no one asked for. Horrible. Edit NOV 2020: now it has opted me into a free trial of premium with no choice and no way to cancel! I’m going to have to get WiFi, log onto a computer, and manually move everything over to iTunes song by song because of this garbage
Can’t tell cuz IT’S NOT AVAILABLE IN MY COUNTRY!!
by WIDAD Q on 2020/11/23 12:58
Why isn’t it available in my country ? Hope it will be available soon ..
It’s ok
by mpls55412 on 2020/11/23 12:57
Interface changes frequently and your liked songs moves around. It’s a scavenger hunt to find where they moved it this week. Shuffle function (both) don’t shuffle your whole playlist. App pauses often even with solid WiFi. Assistant support isn’t there and all we have are promises that never come.
Crappy Alternative to Google
by Mewhotikitaka on 2020/11/23 11:10
When they forced us to transition to this app I was disappointed to learn that I’d have to listen to ads through an album I purchased. Frustrating. And you can’t let the app play in the background because of this. Won’t be buying music through YT Music ever.
Poor
by jaffeld on 2020/11/23 06:23
I live in an area with poor cell service and not many houses with internet even with having stuff downloaded it doesn’t work worth a dam and is so much harder to use unlike google play music.
Pay to listen while phone is locked?!?!
by hillarytofu on 2020/11/23 06:06
This is absolutely unacceptable. YT having us pay for smthg as listening to music while phone is locked. That’s literally just monetizing off of smthg you know is inconvenient to your users. 🤢 I want my Google Music back :( Ya’ll aint chill wit this
Getting better!! A few more things..
by kndrx on 2020/11/23 04:09
I’ve been a YouTube Music advocate to those around me for a few years now and I’m glad to see the change it’s gone through!! A couple things I still see are when you try to move a song around that’s queue, it glitches and doesn’t move unless you do it a few times then it stays in place which is annoying. The other thing is mainly about the sorting. To see the alphabetical sorting come out was sick for the library. It would be much easier to navigate quicker if A-Z was down a column on one of the sides to click a letter to jump to quicker. With that, if the downloaded tracks could be filtered to be sorted A-Z that would be helpful too as I don’t always get the best signal so I have to download music to my phone, but can be a pain finding the song I desire unless I download everything in a certain order. I love the changes that’s been coming with this and I continue to be an advocate amongst people around me, but just a few more touches away from being untouchable to other services.
Why is this app so far behind the curve????
by Jack the Giant Killer on 2020/11/23 03:48
Google can you get the freaking lead out and give us the ability to sort our uploaded albums? We should already be able to view by grid or list, sort by album, artist, genre etc AND where’s the alphabet on the scroll so we can leap deeper down? These are bare minimum features that should have already been released. What the heck are you guys doing with all our freaking money? HIRE MORE DEVELOPERS. Or seriously fire your current team and start over because this is embarrassing. PS the sheer volume of fake positive reviews in here is mindboggling.

Disappointed
by DominiqueSherice✌🏾👅 on 2020/11/22 22:11
I love this app but there should most definitely be a way that when you log in you get the songs you downloaded on a different device I mean come on people what am I paying for premium for I DIDNT BUY BASIC LOL I LOVE YOU YOUTUBE #puttinonfodaculturefayears lol
why
by toyotathecar on 2020/11/22 21:12
I love the app, but why do we need Premium to make the music play while we exit out the app? It beats the purpose of why I got Youtube Music. Sure, you can listen to music but please can’t music be playing while off app? I think it’ll be better
I love the you tube music app!!
by moviesrg on 2020/11/22 20:11
With a subscription I can download all the music I want with or without connection, and enjoy the excellent sound quality whenever I want!!I love you tube music!!👍👍👍👍✌️
One tiny complaint

This app is so amazing,but I can not open the app then play something else on my Home Screen if this makes sense please like!
Frustrating
by DuhReesker on 2020/11/22 19:32
I thought transferring to YT would be an improvement, and it is a great concept, but it seems to be so crudely put together that its just frustrating. Along with the things I’ve read in many of the other reviews, I have yet to figure out how to even rearrange my playlist songs in the order I prefer, and that’s an extremely basic need. I keep going back to GP to ride out it’s existence b/c this app is just more trouble than it’s worth. I’m switching to another platform, which means losing the thousands of songs I’ve saved & purchased, and all the playlists I’ve created over the yrs. NOT HAPPY. Not happy w/ YouTube in general these days either. Maybe it’s time to abandon both.

Great app no complaints learned what kinda music I like and showed me some great songs never even heard of before that are now at top of my playlist
You’ve got something in your teeth...
by bmusante on 2020/11/22 18:17
What a garbage app. My 2005 ipod runs circles around this junk. Crashes, repeats, freezes, feature fails, and so many issues I can’t keep track of them all. I’m embarrassed for google the way you would be if you saw your teacher come back from the principals office with a condom stuck in her teeth. Who wants to tell her?
Ads and removed music
by hdjifjdjdbdhekd on 2020/11/22 15:54
You have music you like on youtube and want to listen to it on the youtube music app? Well to bad 50% of the music isnt on the music app because the uploaded didnt mark it as "music" so overall if you already have youtube its 100x better cause it actually has music on it. Not really youtubes fault but they dont even try to fix it.
Forget previous review...I love this app
by nikanico on 2020/02/24 22:24
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....
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
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.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
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.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
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.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
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.
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
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?
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
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.
Cash Grab
by tke240 on 2020/07/23 20:23
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.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
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.
This is my first review I’ve ever written on Apple
by LordBeard on 2020/09/20 13:28
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.
this app is great but
by Kenzie2004 on 2020/04/26 11:42
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.
Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?
by IStoppingPowerI on 2018/06/02 01:12
(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.
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15
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
It’s ok
by grizzlemynizzle on 2020/09/18 16:50
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.
Meh
by furhdab on 2020/08/13 12:57
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.
Can't customize anything
by killershadow115 on 2019/07/23 08:47
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
Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improve
by WITH LOVE... on 2020/07/14 01:42
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.
SO AGGRAVATING!!
by SometimesFish on 2019/08/28 21:49
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!
Great Concept - Terrible Execution
by Minorly Disgruntled on 2019/10/08 14:29
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.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
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. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
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.
Saved items keep don’t update automatically
by Go MArk on 2019/09/24 20:44
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
One thing...
by Nymjy on 2020/10/20 22:19
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!
The revamp changes everything.
by Alex Lerman on 2018/05/25 04:00
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.
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
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!
Good app but bugs with last updates
by nopicnic on 2019/04/11 20:43
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.
Seems Legit
by i55rex on 2018/07/23 01:08
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!
Giving it four stars will change if app changes this.
by Danku Coris Chi on 2019/03/09 02:10
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...
Good but...
by EdG70 on 2020/10/18 23:48
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.
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
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
Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
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.
No new songs, not worth the money for membership
by exe error 666 on 2020/06/14 19:41
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
Great app but room for improvement
by Timacon on 2018/04/03 03:05
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!
Issue with Bluetooth Performance
by minceem on 2020/11/19 19:10
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.
Fix the playlist shuffling
by Jehjdjdlskbmaskjsjs on 2019/07/11 08:43
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.
barely usable on iphone 8 running latest OS
by digitaldelete on 2020/08/27 22:43
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.
Downloaded songs...?
by 5-6-7-8-Nyna on 2019/11/02 01:26
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!
So much buffering
by Littlezeekers on 2019/05/18 16:45
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..
In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho.
by PORN STAR SWEETS on 2020/03/18 23:42
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!!
Fix this
by Luke¡ on 2019/06/15 04:48
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.
Issue
by ~I_Don't_Know~ on 2020/05/11 16:48
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.
I really want to love this app, but...
by Sire2K on 2020/06/19 17:10
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.
Overall, a great platform
by Maxwell Darwin on 2020/10/26 06:27
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).
It's getting worse
by Angry girlszzzzzzzzzz on 2018/06/15 15:28
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.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2020/11/07 14:09
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!!!!!!!
Developers read ⭐️ 🌟
by DudefuseTIB on 2020/07/07 18:53
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.
Could have been better..
by Amend90 on 2020/03/09 19:27
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..
A second generation failure.
by JClinkers on 2020/09/08 07:14
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.
Needs improvements
by herom99 on 2019/09/14 14:15
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.

Where is the app control for the lock screen??? I would very much like to control the app and chromecast audio from my lock screen like Spotify allows. Google Home app media control as well as this YTM app needs lock screen access to iphone/iOS volume control PLEASE!
Useless
by fhhbsbdbdhxdjdi on 2020/11/27 19:16
So now I have to dig deeper into my own account just to find the music history I’ve been listening to. If it was a feature YouTube decided to change, it’s worthless. It used to be 2 clicks away now it’s 5

by peosper agent on 2020/11/27 08:07
I like streaming music because my phone is always with me . I started with a few selections and in the last 3 months - they have downloaded 6-8 discs that are a combination of my selections and music that is similar and they added discs that are specific to the kind of music I like when I’m falling asleep. They also add new releases albums that I like. I have only music - listening with commercials is terrible LS -2020- Dallas
✨No✨
by NEPH BOI on 2020/11/27 06:42
When I first started my free trial ended and what’s the point of YouTube music of you turn your phone off and it stops!
Let me listen to music outside of the app.
by fire_wizard_9000 on 2020/11/27 04:41
The subscription model is abhorrent due to the requirement to regularly pay them to listen to music while doing things! Ghuuggh!🤮🤮🤮
Important feature does not work
by Fordman555 on 2020/11/27 04:05
I like this app. The look and feel is great. Unfortunately the “add to que” function does NOT work and it almost makes the app not worth subscribing to.
Wow
by deon is to amazing on 2020/11/27 02:52
The only problem is that we have to pay to listen off app like what’s the point off this app then I’m jus using YouTube for now on
I used to love it
by mal4563 on 2020/11/26 23:31
I used it before it merged with Google Play music and now it glitches all the time. Like I can’t even edit my queued music. It’s awful
I want a repeat option!!
by MaSangetti on 2020/11/26 22:37
Don't get me started on the autoplay nonsense. I mean, of course I wanna listen to upbeat country immediately after soothing indie 😒 But real talk I want a repeat option. Sometimes my whole DAY is A SINGLE song!! Without this I'm going back to apple music.
Hate the ads and refuse to pay
by DS5584 on 2020/11/26 21:47
I miss google music with passion. I don’t like that now if you don’t want to hear annoying ads after every song I have to pay. Deleting and suffering the lose of my music I paid and collected along the way over years . RIP google music you will be missed
I’m over this

YouTube Music you control
by courtoflaw on 2020/11/26 17:50
Great app but we know these guys are pros, maybe a bit overpriced, though. $12 seems a bit much when other, more seasoned music apps offer subscriptions for less. Somewhere between $4.99-7.99 seems more reasonable.

Irritating experience if you are a free user. Ads galore and doesn’t play music in the background so forget about using it in the car, you will go nuts and ram into someone either out of frustration or trying to mess with the clunky UX. Google is letting this user-base roll downhill.
Classical music at its best!
by Maryblueiris on 2020/11/26 14:30
I am a lover of classical music. Have explored many avenues for streaming classical music. Youtube Music is by far the best! It seems literally every composition and artist is available. And the sound quality is wonderful! I have finally found what I need.

Have had many platforms for music but I have really enjoyed this set up and how great YouTube keeps track of your likes in your own playlist easy access to download your favorite jams
Glitch or problem
by its Mr Wave on 2020/11/26 13:04
Same Thing happened to me I never subscribed to YouTube music premium and it signed me up for it I’m NOT going to pay for YouTube premium
Waste of time
by jbaker73 on 2020/11/26 12:31
We got rid of google play for a worst app They want you to pay money to get what Google play was and if you don’t play it’s basically just another YouTube app.Please add in the middle of the songs but also likes to pause or buffer repeatedly it makes listen to music and pain download Pandora or something else they really messed up by getting rid of Google play
Downloading music
by jackieortiz24 on 2020/11/26 08:47
Loved google play music and switching over is fine the only thing is downloading music, I miss the feature of just adding music to my library and it would download instantly. I wish that would happen because the lags of when music isn’t downloaded is very annoying and doing downloads manually, every single song one by one or album by album is annoying. Just a little disappointed.

A thing that would be nice

If you were able to like on normal YouTube slow down or fast forward songs cause sometimes they sound better that way
Get YouTube Premium with this
by crunchyrollreccomender468 on 2020/11/26 04:05
I’m bored during quarantine and always watch YouTube. But the ads are so boring and annoying. So I got YouTube Premium. And it comes with YouTube music so any song on YouTube 🤩🤩. Get it if you listen to music and watch a ton of YouTube.
Amazing app
by BenJAMIN5150 on 2020/11/26 03:34
I always revert to YouTube for any music needs. From oldies to today’s classics. Thanks YouTube.
Horrible
by CWayne234 on 2020/11/26 03:13
I’d rather use Google Play Music than this crap.
Loveee thissss
by lizzy1000001 on 2020/11/26 01:53
I love this premium is so worth it but I won’t be able to use is soon because I use a gift card and I don’t have a card 😢
Pathetic
by gurmeetb on 2020/11/26 01:25
why would someone push music app which cannot run in background. This app should be flagged as Paid Only so users don’t downlod it mistakenly considering it is music app.
Battery killer, terrible app
by Notcool11 on 2020/11/26 00:35
Google play music was so much better. No ads when listening to your own library and no need to have the screen on when playing. I could stomach ads, but needing to have the screen on to listen to music?? That doesn’t even make sense. Google started out with a motto of “don’t be evil”, how far they have fallen from their own standards.
Joy
by Shirack19 on 2020/11/25 23:42
Just an awesome app,,, very entertaining 😍
probably the best music app just needs a few fixes
by zenonej on 2020/11/25 21:57
Only reason it’s better because it has way more music from artists including both albums and mixtapes. Sound quality is just as good as Apple’s and better than (sorry Jay Z) Tidal and Spotify. So do your own comparisons; icompared G-Herbo/Southside’s song “Some Nights” and the song is rich on Apple and YouTube music unlike Tidal and Spotify. Well worth the extra $3 best value imo just needs to be as simple as Apple Music and organized as them as well because the organization on this app is all over the place. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Please fix
by gjchxh on 2020/11/25 21:54
I can usually put on a song and shut it off but now i cant please can u fix it please

Widget broken in iOS
by Accidental Angel on 2020/11/25 20:40
I’ve tried restarting, reinstalling, etc. to no avail. Widget just shows blank placeholders where content should be.
it’s a scheme
by maldeave on 2020/11/25 20:17
You literally have to keep paying to listen to music ad free and the songs you’ve downloaded while on premium isn’t available until u renew again . Don’t waste your time downloading unless you plan to pay forever .
Download Radio Stations!!
by Armeniandave on 2020/11/25 16:21
Edit 2: Still massive CarPlay issues! This is an amateur app plain and simple. Google should be ashamed to make this app with so many bugs. You really screwed this one up!! Edit: New issue now on CarPlay. Try to skip song and it does on the display but the music didn’t actually change!! So many bugs!!!! Come on Google get your crap together. Should be able to download Radio stations. Was one of the best features of google play music. If this is a replacement then make it at least as good!
Poor performance, lacking basic library navigation features
by chrnola on 2020/11/25 13:54
Having this app open and just browsing through songs makes my phone physically warm to the touch. The only way to browse downloaded songs for offline use is...by album? What? Library lists are loaded lazily, so there's no fast way to scroll through them (I have about 60GB of downloaded songs, so this is far from ideal).
a little problem
by melina.x on 2020/11/25 05:18
So a few days ago it was working well, it let me go onto different apps while listening to music but today its not letting me go on different apps while still listening to the music. like it stops
no
by Hejsgisgekah on 2020/11/25 04:33
i dont see why we have to pay so we can listen to music without being on the app? I jusy want to he on other apps while listening. I would use spotify but i want to be able to pick what song i want to listen to and be able to skip as many songs as j want. Not just 6
VIVA LA GPM
by B3NUTZ3RNAM3 on 2020/11/25 04:25
Where do I even begin with this app?Searching never defaults to uploads, which is what I always want to do. Scrolling takes forever, which makes the terrible search interface the only option. Albums sometimes get split and you can't fix the metadata or rejoin them unless you delete it and reupload it. I can't listen continuously in the background without paying for premium, so I can't use it while driving or running, (and I've even heard you can't use the free version with Chromecast, which is literally the only reason I bought a Chromecast: for using it with my GPM because there was no GPM app for the Roku). This makes this app almost worthless to me. Also, although not strictly related to this app per se, it is worth noting hire much of a pain it is that I have to switch between my branded account for regular Youtube viewing and listening to my music on my regular Google account on my desktop with no option to transfer everything so it's just on one account. Yes I know about container tabs, but I still haven't figured out how to set those up properly and it makes me have to sign in twice (with full 2FA) rather than just clicking to switch accounts. Any way you slice it it's a pain. This app is light years behind where GPM was even though that app was buggy as crap on iOS. On top of that, I don't see why I should have any faith it'll be around long enough for these problems to be fixed before it too gets the axe knowing the "Don't Be Evil"™️ company. It's only a matter of time. I'm going to use the default iOS music app and just keep YTM around as a backup for the time being.
Fix the Widget Already!
by OnlyTony441 on 2020/11/25 04:13
Why does the widgets not show the proper Playlist Artwork?? Instead it shows the first song on the playlist which is completely unusable for trying to hop back into a recently played playlist. Along with that why can’t I edit the Playlist Artwork?? So many basic features missing that other music services execute flawlessly!
It’s good

Like a better version of Spotify for me
by Ow My Hands on 2020/11/25 02:35
It's a few more bucks, but Youtube Music/Premium is worth it, I think. It's Spotify, with the nice find-your-type-of-music algorithm, a big selection, a comfortable dislike-unlike system, and personal playlists. What makes it different is that it knows your Youtube history so it'll make smart music suggestions based on the music videos and such you've watched.

Can’t use it
by Fran Hollen on 2020/11/25 00:49
Keeps bugging out every time I try opening it. “Sign in error” pops up and then flickers in and out and everything else is a blank screen. Cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times from App Store, tried updating my phone. Nothing works. Really wish you didn’t take over Google Play Music. Never had any issues with them.
Let me adjust the volume of connected Google Cast devices.
by JMR-V on 2020/11/25 00:43
Add volume slider to adjust the volume of connected Google Cast devices (including groups). Also, have music that is casting appear on the iOS Control Center media player section.
Are used to think it was good but it’s bad now
by rayne the brain on 2020/11/24 23:45
So are used to love it cause I can find like music songs and like do you lyric pranks wow I am off the app but that was used to now it’s saying oh you have to get a free trial to do it and that’s horrible it used to be awesome I don’t know why you guys change that you guys are stupid
Won’t hold place
by DWJohnson88 on 2020/11/24 23:38
This app is great like the option to watch videos on it and how you can see the lyrics. The playlists and radio stations are pretty good too. The only complaint is that when I close the app out I have to start over with my playlists or stations and can’t start where I left off. I’m constantly getting the same 10 songs cause I have to start over every time.
If you don’t have a subscription don’t use this
by clw1115934 on 2020/11/24 22:22
Constant ads between songs, constantly asking if I want to start my free trial, and still not able to play music with the screen locked. Google killed Play Music so they could serve more ads on this garbage platform.
Deserves negative rating and immediate removal from App Store
by Wilson Hoops on 2020/11/24 21:22
Another cash grab by Google for your data. Can’t buy individual tracks, must stream. If you’re a Google employee, shame on you.
Stupid
by dygyjguyt on 2020/11/24 20:27
Yea so it’s kinda good but when I exit the app music still plays and I like that but then of course it stopped doing that 😑
Please please change the volume slider
by Kc surf on 2020/11/24 20:12
Please make the volume slider like every other app. It takes forever to change the volume. The increments are so small in adjusting volume. Great app other than that
Please read
by Like86cool on 2020/11/24 19:31
I love YouTube music especially with premium. It’s fantastic. However, the new update which got rid of the mixtape button has been a huge disappointment. Before I could press one button and have a whole station of music I like start playing automatically. Now it takes me to a playlist and I have to press play or shuffle. I preferred it the other way much better especially when I wanna get into my music quickly. I recommend making this an option or just making them two separate things. The mixtape was my favorite feature of the app, sad to see it completely gone.
I want to play MY MUSIC only
by johnny blanch on 2020/11/24 18:35
You know we already have an app that will play YouTube songs.I was hoping for an app that would play my library. This app makes it way too hard to play my music. It keeps skipping back to YouTube songs. Could we please have an aspect of the app that would only play MY music?
Highly Recommended
by MassMinnie on 2020/11/24 18:27
The only place I go to when I need a good vibe and the music is updated regularly so you don’t have to listen to the same songs!
It's a love hate relationship
by BadDARKHUNTER on 2020/11/24 17:56
So I like the YouTube music app and I see they are adding more features to it. The one thing that gets on my nerves is the fact that the app "resets" Everytime. Meaning say I'm listening to a generated mix like "my super mix". I'm enjoying the playlist but I pause it to do something else or whatever. After a couple days the app essentially closes and I lose that playlist. This is annoying because Google music didn't have that. I could close Google music and go back to what I was playing whenever I wanted. Furthermore, YouTube music seems to have the same issue I had with Google music were songs I like aren't being recorded. Like I will give a thumbs up to a song and that song could come back a few days or weeks later and it's as if I never listened to it because there is no thumbs up mark. Some times it works some times not. Additionally, when you hit start a radio I wish it asked you if you meant to do that. Because there has been times I accidentally start to play a song and I can't go back to the previous song/playlist. It would be great if I could get a prompt confirming if I meant to select something (you can put the settings the ability to opt in/ourtof that prompt). And if I don't like the playlist or whatever if I can just go back to what I was previously listening too. Lastly, the biggest feature I miss is the played times indicator. This is crucial when listening to say a podcast like ASOT (a state of trance) with2 hrs worth of music. In Google music I looked at the played count to see what was the last song I listened too. In YouTube music I don't have that so I can't tell. Frankly I wished they had all the functionality of Google music mapped over before they started decommissioning Google music. Because right at the gate YouTube music didn't even have the ability to repeat a song without you having to rewind it, like they recently added that button. I think the migration left much to be desired.
Super dope, would recommend, minor complaints
by dmj26753 on 2020/11/24 16:46
Overall super dope, only complaint is how clunky offline play is, feels like I have to wait forever for it to realize it’s not connecting and recommend me offline play. Once we get there seems to work well. It’d be nice if default was “song” instead of video too, cause I don’t always have good signal. But the app is great cause I listen to a ton of music from YouTube and it auto compiles on this app so I don’t need to go find them in YouTube.
Chrome cast
by blahhhhhhhhh! on 2020/11/24 16:43
Removing chromecasting for free like google play is extremely disappointing. Not using app anymore
Not Nice..
by Vicktannie on 2020/11/24 16:26
At first.. Ok.. I was excited by having it! I get to listen to my favorite music, Without using YouTube and I get to leave the app! Then.. an Update comes, and I don't.. get to Listen to my Music and I have to Stay on the app in order to listen to what I want.. IF I have to do that.. Im better off using Youtube!! BY ITSELF. I don’t like the way I have to leave the app and PAY in order to do listen to what I want.. If you could, take off where we have to STAY on the APP in order to listen to music. Thank you!
Great app for music but
by Rubiotried on 2020/11/24 15:03
I just wish that the algorithm that it uses to find new music or for radio stations was a lot more diverse. I’ll end up listening to the same ten songs instead of introducing new songs that are the same type of songs that I play on the app. I also wish that they could make it easier to add music to a playlist. Anything other than that, it’s great, downloading music is easy and I can find all type of music that I would find in YouTube.
Terrible Performance
by IVIauricius on 2020/11/24 14:51
Whoever the engineers on this project are, y’all need to get them into a memory management course ASAP. This app crashes so much in my iPhone SE it’s almost like it’s intended purpose is to not work. When it’s not chugging along while scrolling it’s more than likely relaunching because it crashed while scrolling. I don’t understand how Tidal is producing a better performing app than Google.
Ruined it
by Kat_420_108 on 2020/11/24 11:30
They ruined it with updates now my playlist don’t play ANYTHING I like
Kinda wish I could listen offline
by girl from other dimension on 2020/11/24 05:41
I usually don’t complain about not being able to listen offline but there are songs I like that aren’t on apps that I can listen to offline that are on YouTube and usually the music from YouTube is put into this app and I don’t want to have to pay for premium so I think it be better if you made listening offline free.
App switch
by Shamelesd on 2020/11/24 04:40
I had google music and was switched to you tube. I was familiar to my google music. The YouTube music app is good. But still preferred the google play music
Get paid version or quit this app
by Yulenka06 on 2020/11/24 04:18
They want you to get paid version otherwise this app is useless.
Spotty
by ShadowSkill1114 on 2020/11/24 03:51
At times when watching videos if you skip two or three songs the video will do the stop and go while the audio keeps playing. And if you minimize the screen sometimes you can’t go back to full screen. Have to close the app repeatedly to fix the issues. Please help. I dropped my google music app to keep this one. I really don’t want to regret making that decision.
Great except one flaw
by kakrohn123 on 2020/11/24 02:53
Great except one flaw. I cast music videos from my iPhone 11 to my Roku TV every night before bed. It works great, until it plays a song with no video. When this happens, the music stops playing and you have to manually skip to the next song & also make sure you hit the video switch at the top because it won’t switch back automatically. The settings have an option for no videos, but why not an option for only videos?
You tube music is the truth
by WaxxWorld Ent on 2020/11/24 02:32
Man this app has completely transformed my work outs I can customize my playlists to fit what ever it is I’m doin and how I’m feelin for that day I personally couldn’t ask for a better music platform 💯

by "insert relevent meme here" on 2020/11/23 22:58
It works It’s made for music And it does it’s job of playing it I like how once your playlist is finished it recommends you songs you might like. And sometimes I do like them.
I love this
by klywhtevr on 2020/11/23 21:40
Using YouTube for music at work and it’s fantastic! I have Apple Music but it’s nice to just log into my account and have all these playlists whenever I need something to keep me productive!
Skips songs
by shshdbcnekkez on 2020/11/23 19:52
My only problem with the app is that if a song I want won’t load, then the app just keeps going through whatever playlist I’m in until it finds a song that will. Super annoying but otherwise I haven’t had any issues
Shuffle 400 songs?
by JRRetz on 2020/11/23 18:09
Youtube Music “hahhahaaaaa!!! I’ll play 4 songs over and over no matter what you do!” I want Play Music back already. Really though, I can listen to a playlist or artist in “shuffle”. Quit and start over and it plays the exact same “random” songs I just listened to. It’s like shuffle is a preset cue of songs, there is nothing random or shuffle about it.
Cannot look by alphabetical letter
by KayaCuddy on 2020/11/23 17:10
There’s not an option to find a song that you have saved, and want to search it alphabetically. You have to keep scrolling through ALL of your songs rather than hit J on the side of the screen where the alphabet is located, to search by the beginning letter.
It’s so annoying
by jsbdhdnd on 2020/11/23 16:36
Like after a year month idk it let us play the music with our phone turned off or playing another game now it asks us for premium like- I don’t have enough money -.-
Review of Excellency
by Leprecgaun13 on 2020/11/23 16:26
When I had first purchased YouTube Music, I thought it would be like any other music application out there. I have had Spotify, Apple Music, and plenty of other music programs in the past. I honestly think YouTube Music tops them all because of the simplicity they offer. YouTube makes it incredibly easy to find the song, genre, or artist you like with little to no information provided by the consumer. If you like a song, your other favorites are not too far away. Their App is incredibly easy to use, and I often find myself finding catchy shortcuts. Anyway, I love music and I wanted to thank you all for making that both easy and affordable for myself and others.
This app cannibalized a good app
by no!!!!!!! my name is nunya on 2020/11/23 16:01
Google play music was easy, simple, bug-free, and now it has been killed by this horrible monster because YouTube wants to justify making it. I guess not enough people downloaded YouTube music because now if I want to keep the music I paid for I have to. Disgusting. Edit OCT 2020: I have been trying to use this. You have to dig for your own music through a bunch of garbage no one asked for. Horrible. Edit NOV 2020: now it has opted me into a free trial of premium with no choice and no way to cancel! I’m going to have to get WiFi, log onto a computer, and manually move everything over to iTunes song by song because of this garbage
Can’t tell cuz IT’S NOT AVAILABLE IN MY COUNTRY!!

by mpls55412 on 2020/11/23 12:57
Interface changes frequently and your liked songs moves around. It’s a scavenger hunt to find where they moved it this week. Shuffle function (both) don’t shuffle your whole playlist. App pauses often even with solid WiFi. Assistant support isn’t there and all we have are promises that never come.
Crappy Alternative to Google
by Mewhotikitaka on 2020/11/23 11:10
When they forced us to transition to this app I was disappointed to learn that I’d have to listen to ads through an album I purchased. Frustrating. And you can’t let the app play in the background because of this. Won’t be buying music through YT Music ever.
Poor
by jaffeld on 2020/11/23 06:23
I live in an area with poor cell service and not many houses with internet even with having stuff downloaded it doesn’t work worth a dam and is so much harder to use unlike google play music.
Pay to listen while phone is locked?!?!
by hillarytofu on 2020/11/23 06:06
This is absolutely unacceptable. YT having us pay for smthg as listening to music while phone is locked. That’s literally just monetizing off of smthg you know is inconvenient to your users. 🤢 I want my Google Music back :( Ya’ll aint chill wit this
Getting better!! A few more things..
by kndrx on 2020/11/23 04:09
I’ve been a YouTube Music advocate to those around me for a few years now and I’m glad to see the change it’s gone through!! A couple things I still see are when you try to move a song around that’s queue, it glitches and doesn’t move unless you do it a few times then it stays in place which is annoying. The other thing is mainly about the sorting. To see the alphabetical sorting come out was sick for the library. It would be much easier to navigate quicker if A-Z was down a column on one of the sides to click a letter to jump to quicker. With that, if the downloaded tracks could be filtered to be sorted A-Z that would be helpful too as I don’t always get the best signal so I have to download music to my phone, but can be a pain finding the song I desire unless I download everything in a certain order. I love the changes that’s been coming with this and I continue to be an advocate amongst people around me, but just a few more touches away from being untouchable to other services.
Why is this app so far behind the curve????
by Jack the Giant Killer on 2020/11/23 03:48
Google can you get the freaking lead out and give us the ability to sort our uploaded albums? We should already be able to view by grid or list, sort by album, artist, genre etc AND where’s the alphabet on the scroll so we can leap deeper down? These are bare minimum features that should have already been released. What the heck are you guys doing with all our freaking money? HIRE MORE DEVELOPERS. Or seriously fire your current team and start over because this is embarrassing. PS the sheer volume of fake positive reviews in here is mindboggling.

why
by toyotathecar on 2020/11/22 21:12
I love the app, but why do we need Premium to make the music play while we exit out the app? It beats the purpose of why I got Youtube Music. Sure, you can listen to music but please can’t music be playing while off app? I think it’ll be better
I love the you tube music app!!
by moviesrg on 2020/11/22 20:11
With a subscription I can download all the music I want with or without connection, and enjoy the excellent sound quality whenever I want!!I love you tube music!!👍👍👍👍✌️
One tiny complaint

Frustrating
by DuhReesker on 2020/11/22 19:32
I thought transferring to YT would be an improvement, and it is a great concept, but it seems to be so crudely put together that its just frustrating. Along with the things I’ve read in many of the other reviews, I have yet to figure out how to even rearrange my playlist songs in the order I prefer, and that’s an extremely basic need. I keep going back to GP to ride out it’s existence b/c this app is just more trouble than it’s worth. I’m switching to another platform, which means losing the thousands of songs I’ve saved & purchased, and all the playlists I’ve created over the yrs. NOT HAPPY. Not happy w/ YouTube in general these days either. Maybe it’s time to abandon both.

by bmusante on 2020/11/22 18:17
What a garbage app. My 2005 ipod runs circles around this junk. Crashes, repeats, freezes, feature fails, and so many issues I can’t keep track of them all. I’m embarrassed for google the way you would be if you saw your teacher come back from the principals office with a condom stuck in her teeth. Who wants to tell her?
Ads and removed music

You have music you like on youtube and want to listen to it on the youtube music app? Well to bad 50% of the music isnt on the music app because the uploaded didnt mark it as "music" so overall if you already have youtube its 100x better cause it actually has music on it. Not really youtubes fault but they dont even try to fix it.
Forget previous review...I love this app
by nikanico on 2020/02/24 22:24
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....
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
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.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
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.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
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.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
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.
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
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?
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
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.
Cash Grab
by tke240 on 2020/07/23 20:23
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.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
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.
This is my first review I’ve ever written on Apple
by LordBeard on 2020/09/20 13:28
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.
this app is great but
by Kenzie2004 on 2020/04/26 11:42
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.
Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?
by IStoppingPowerI on 2018/06/02 01:12
(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.
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15
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
It’s ok
by grizzlemynizzle on 2020/09/18 16:50
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.
Meh
by furhdab on 2020/08/13 12:57
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.
Can't customize anything
by killershadow115 on 2019/07/23 08:47
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
Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improve
by WITH LOVE... on 2020/07/14 01:42
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.
SO AGGRAVATING!!
by SometimesFish on 2019/08/28 21:49
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!
Great Concept - Terrible Execution
by Minorly Disgruntled on 2019/10/08 14:29
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.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
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. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
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.
Saved items keep don’t update automatically
by Go MArk on 2019/09/24 20:44
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
One thing...
by Nymjy on 2020/10/20 22:19
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!
The revamp changes everything.
by Alex Lerman on 2018/05/25 04:00
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.
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
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!
Good app but bugs with last updates
by nopicnic on 2019/04/11 20:43
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.
Seems Legit
by i55rex on 2018/07/23 01:08
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!
Giving it four stars will change if app changes this.
by Danku Coris Chi on 2019/03/09 02:10
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...
Good but...
by EdG70 on 2020/10/18 23:48
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.
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
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
Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
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.
No new songs, not worth the money for membership
by exe error 666 on 2020/06/14 19:41
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
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!
Issue with Bluetooth Performance
by minceem on 2020/11/19 19:10
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.
Fix the playlist shuffling
by Jehjdjdlskbmaskjsjs on 2019/07/11 08:43
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.
barely usable on iphone 8 running latest OS
by digitaldelete on 2020/08/27 22:43
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.
Downloaded songs...?
by 5-6-7-8-Nyna on 2019/11/02 01:26
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!
So much buffering
by Littlezeekers on 2019/05/18 16:45
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..
In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho.
by PORN STAR SWEETS on 2020/03/18 23:42
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!!
Fix this
by Luke¡ on 2019/06/15 04:48
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.
Issue
by ~I_Don't_Know~ on 2020/05/11 16:48
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.
I really want to love this app, but...
by Sire2K on 2020/06/19 17:10
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.
Overall, a great platform
by Maxwell Darwin on 2020/10/26 06:27
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).
It's getting worse
by Angry girlszzzzzzzzzz on 2018/06/15 15:28
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.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2020/11/07 14:09
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!!!!!!!

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.
Could have been better..
by Amend90 on 2020/03/09 19:27
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..
A second generation failure.
by JClinkers on 2020/09/08 07:14
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.
Needs improvements
by herom99 on 2019/09/14 14:15
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.
