Great app and search engine
Background refresh not working
by Val Libra on 2021/10/22 15:20
I don't know what's going on but everytime I listen to music and I would have to stop it even if it's for a couple of seconds it's gone. As if background refresh don't work. I would have to start all back over looking for the playlist or music I was listening to and start over. It's kinda annoying. I love you guys and been there since Google music. Please fix.
Bad update
by hkphooey66 on 2021/10/22 14:52
Great update. Now the app crashes after about 30 seconds of playing music. Good job Apple and Google☹️
Best App Ever
by DebsforHim on 2021/10/22 13:55
I can listen to varied and new music every time I launch it! The music is to my taste and if I really like a song, I can download it! Beats Apple Music Nd Amazon music hands down!
Some off center UI elements
by Amit-sangwan on 2021/10/22 13:15
This app is a very neat app, a very intuitive interface. But in latest update that lower UI elements are hidden behind the multitasking bar. (Music, explore and library ) icons seem positioned too low towards the edge of display. Apart from that a solid app.
Good
by Fireduck47 on 2021/10/22 12:59
I really like this. I can pick out the song I like. What I don’t like is I cannot have it run in background when receiving text messages or to look up things or to even check my email. So I have to resort back to Pandora.😞
Since 15.02 offline music download not working
by j0llygruntt on 2021/10/22 12:13
Even when connected to Wi-Fi network, whenever I click to download any playlist for offline listening the songs get stuck in “waiting “. It worked just fine before the update. Please fix asap! I’d rate 4 or 5 without this bug.
Great variety, super glitchy and inconvenient
by @justicemalik on 2021/10/22 12:10
One of the biggest music selections out of all music apps and has some cool features. However, it’s SUPER glitchy. Once you open the app and start playing my music, you can’t open any other apps or YouTube Music will crash. The same thing happens every once in a while when you get a notification, or just for no apparent reason at all. When you add a new song to a playlist, it populates at the very bottom, so you have to scroll through all of your songs just to get to it. When you exit the app while after pausing a song then open the app later, it doesn’t keep playing the song where you left off. I really love the app, I just wish the glitches and inconveniences could be fixed.
Long ads
by Cartercr on 2021/10/22 12:01
YouTube Music is a music streaming service, correct? That means we should be able to put our phones down and just listen to music, correct? I understand ads, every streaming service has them, but why are we getting 10 minute long videos under the guise of an ad? I listen to music at work and honestly these long ads are making me want something else. I can’t press the skip button at work, so I just end up closing the app in frustration. Fix this YouTube. You can do better.

App is just until recently. Now every time my phone goes to sleep the app closes. It doesn’t even keep the same song in cue.

App stops abruptly
by vatsal vador on 2021/10/21 15:08
When app is running unlocked on iPhone 8 it runs normal. As soon as I lock phone it plays music for 2 to 3 seconds and then app stops. I’m paid user.
Love the suggested songs
by abzalot on 2021/10/21 13:31
I’ve been using YouTube music since it started (came o we from google music when it switched). I love that YouTube music knows the type of songs I like and suggested new ones to add to my playlists.
Almost there
by Jmo@1 on 2021/10/21 13:27
Great selection of music and a good interface. I really wish that the video in landscape mode was larger and the list was smaller with less white space (on iPad). Also, it would be great for when I am watching videos if it would default to video vs just audio for the next song. Please! I am a Premium subscriber!

Used To Love You
by Lenny Adelaide on 2021/10/21 06:02
This was going to be favorite way to organize music once I got around to remaking my playlists. By far the best monthly membership I ever got, I can’t live without it. Biggest draw: huge variety! Did your favourite songs from other apps disappear? It’s probably on YouTube Music in some form or other. 2nd favorite feature: The queue is so easy to rearrange and add to. So much easier to change the order of songs before I commit and edit a playlist. Constructive criticism: Really sad that you can no longer see what year a song came out when you look at the lyrics section. That was so great, even if lyrics were not available. The Android users were missing out on this but I guess we’re in the same boat now. Except they seem to be able to recall a queue if an accidental tap starts a whole new playlist… Can I get that? Great song suggestions in radio mode generally (surprising when you listen to my weird stuff), but they are not consistent so being able to recall would make me so happy. I avoid the “My Mix” options, they seem to contain a lot of songs I specifically avoid but haven’t given thumbs down to yet.

Amazing app
by gohytddnk on 2021/10/20 21:20
Just wish that it was possible to save songs to multiple playlist at one time. Not that big of a deal but it would be an even better app
No disable autoplay feature
by spotball31 on 2021/10/20 20:41
This app is only for those looking to listen to algorithm reccomendations, because there’s no way to turn them off! I even looked for some workarounds on the web and it appears they’ve been programmed out! I’d like to listen to one song and stop. I’ll even watch an ad to do that! Is that too much to ask?!
Queue app issues
by zerothdegree on 2021/10/20 17:09
There are lots of missing features and annoying things missing from YouTube music. One of the biggest issues I have is the queue. You can’t save your queue to a playlist. Pretty much making playlists is the only way to go. If I spend two hours putting stuff in my queue and accidentally click on a song my whole queue is erased and replaced. Queue often vanishes or fails to load. Ever since update 4.50.1 the queue goes blank. Tracks still there but you pull it up and can’t see the list of songs. There’s a ton of other issues that feel like common sense to fix and I know have been complained about a lot since the forced switch from Google play music to YouTube music. Maybe listen to your subscribers and fix these things. Google has a bad habit of releasing services with bugs and just abandoning them and ignoring the users reviews and complaints.
Deficiencies
by cevmus on 2021/10/20 14:04
i see two deficits of the app, one Add2Queue func doesn’t work at all, the other is, by default it supposed to play song version not video as it is music app.
Pauses itself once a song
by anulbead on 2021/10/20 13:01
No reason just pauses itself I have good Internet but other than that awesome
Update
by Beagleserena on 2021/10/20 12:16
The new update will not let you close out the songs. The x is gone that close the song that you had open.
Poor widgets
by ankushjain2001 on 2021/10/20 11:18
The note playing song didn’t update in widgets. Instead the first manually played song stays there. Worst part is that, if you click on it, the song restarts. Why doesn’t it update? And why restart? Doesn’t serve any purpose.
Weekly new Bollywood hits list is not present

My favorite streaming service
by power2uth on 2021/10/20 03:37
I’ve tried Deezer, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora plan, and Amazon. Pandora, beautiful UI , but not great UE. Deezer, you can only upload one song at a time of your own music. Spotify, no real personal music collection upload solution. Amazon, UI is a mess. Apple Music, I hate the UI, although it’s very well done. I really like YTM’s UI, and although their incorporation of the personal music vault isn’t as elegant as Google Play Music’s was, it’s still pretty good. Everybody has their own use cases, and YTM works for me. I really like it, especially on the iPhone where I can use AirPlay to stream to Sonos.

Great for your music needs
by Sir_Ronaldo on 2021/10/20 01:39
👍
Decent app, but some things aren’t quite the same.
by Akira R. on 2021/10/19 22:45
Because I only use the YouTube liked playlist to listen to my “favorites” when it comes to music, the YouTube Music app isn’t really needed. This isn’t the case for most other people however. I still use the YouTube Music app for two reasons. One, it’s faster to access (on most occasions), and two, the music shuffle button is way more randomized. On the other hand, there are a few things I dislike about it when compared to just using the YouTube app. First, moving songs to different playlists is more tedious and really should share the same checked box list as standard YouTube. This also makes it easier to put the selected song (or songs!?) into multiple playlists without having to make multiple transactions. Two, I really feel as though the app would make a bit more sense if it was implemented into YouTube itself considering all your playlists are siphoned to and fro both apps. Three, the app is unappealing to look at compared to other competitive music applications. In conclusion, it’s a decent app, but some polishing on music playlists and general aesthetic would jumpstart its overall usage.
Missing repeat button
by Em0223 on 2021/10/19 22:32
I used to love google music but when it switched to YouTube music the app doesn’t let me repeat any songs. The repeat button disappears when you stream music to google device or Bluetooth speaker. This is very inconvenient because I use it in my kids rooms at night. In have an iPhone ( not sure if that’s a factor). Very disappointing.
Best way to listen to music!
by JonnylovesMariah on 2021/10/19 21:16
I LOVE YouTube music. The option to switch between album track and music video is amazing! You can share playlists with friends! Stream to a tv/monitor to share/create playlists as a group. A++
Good app
by jackson2192 on 2021/10/19 20:49
I like the app and would love to make it my only music app but almost every single time I leave the app and try to go back into it it restarts like it was closed and it’s extremely frustrating. Keep it in memory so it doesn’t close and I’ll use it over other apps until then it’s too frustrating to do so.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Love it but could use work
by KasperBlack on 2021/10/19 15:23
I have been using this app for year's and it's an amazing app. I love the fact that I can listen to my downloaded music when I don't have service. But there are a few things that need work. First off I hate that when I answer a call it kicks me off of my music. Like it used to just pause it and I could resume my music after the call but now I have to go back to the app and restart my mix and it's super annoying when that happens while I'm driving. Another thing is that have to keep re-downloading the same playlist over and over again. I already downloaded the songs so why do I have to keep downloading the same content... Other than that I love this app.

by Ualreadii on 2021/10/19 13:46

by Dre Spins on 2021/10/19 12:20
I love YouTube music more than all other streaming services. I just wish i was able to create playlists based on the songs that have been automatically selected after I play my first song or add it to play next. Also it would be great if I could filter all music to get the clean edited in my search results first. I would still recommend this app to anyone

Apple CarPlay Features Missing
by Nefarious_Blu on 2021/10/19 06:13
Please read this review… Can we please get YouTube Music updated for Apple CarPlay? It’s missing features that Apple Music has. Example: The “Create a Station” based off the song that’s currently playing, “Add to Library” feature, “Add to Playlist” feature, and etc. These are features that should be added asap. I would really appreciate this. I’ve been a paying customer for 7 years before it went from Google Play Music to Youtube Music.

by 2k1 Hime on 2021/10/19 01:32
Yeah it’s nice to have all your playlists and personalized music choices right there, but I really don’t think I should have to pay actual money in order to listen to my music while using another app. That’s one thing I look for in music apps: A way to have stuff playing in the background while I do other things, or if I want to turn the screen off to save battery. I’m totally fine with ads between songs, just PLEASE don’t lock background playback behind a paywall!
Was ok but not letting me do anything
by 183384838538 on 2021/10/19 01:31
When I first downloaded this app I thought that it would be convenient to listen to and fun in general. But that quickly changed two weeks later when I couldn’t even open the app. When I was able to even OPEN the app, it just told me that something was wrong with the app but their working on it. And it’s honestly just a waste of storage. Do not recommend.

Frustrating
by Of_Elizondo on 2021/10/18 22:21
Literally one of the worst music apps I’ve ever had. I’m always having to re-search songs I don’t want to add to a playlist, but still want to listen to (as if a play history is impossible to include), always being recommended songs I don’t care for, and the radio stations are constantly taking a turn for the worst. Never had these problems with Google Play. Might have to strictly stick with Spotify.

Missing Basic Functionality in CarPlay
by jasperthefriendly on 2021/10/18 17:37
I loved the Android version of this app, but the iOS one is very very poor in comparison, particularly for CarPlay. I've sent feedback and spoken to support about this but no success. - Carplay only shows "Your Likes" playlist and none of the others I've made - Can't even see a basic queue of songs in Carplay, you're stuck with only seeing the current song in "Now Playing" - Can't search in the Carplay app! Have to use Siri, who frequently fails to find albums or songs
Great app but there are fields to improve

Worse than play music
by musicmattmetalman on 2021/10/18 14:36
I used google play music for about 3-4 years before the mandatory switch to YouTube music. I listen to music constantly all day at work at home in the car etc. This app has a lot of glitches and bugs. Downloads do not work properly all the time and fail to load even tho it says downloaded. The radios you can select are by far the worst thing about this app. I can select radios for 3 different bands and they will have the same songs in different order. Maybe it’s an algorithm issue but I choose the radios to hear more music not the same stuff over and over again like local radio stations. It’s pretty disappointing considering that it’s a step down from google play music. Not a step forward. Going to try a few different music apps to see what is best
Great app
by Abranchill on 2021/10/18 07:56

There r some songs y’all can listen to if u want.peace out bye.
Very close, but not Play Music
by Kytkad on 2021/10/18 06:11
Google play music, literally been paying for it since the start. One single feature I miss is the I’m feeling lucky button. When yt music was added as an option I tried it but went back to gpm. Super mix is not the same and there is no similar dice option in the explore section. I love looking for new music similar to what I already listen to and hitting that little dice did its job perfectly. I spend more time skipping tracks now then before, I’m no longer enjoying listening to music. I’ve tried liking more tracks but my stations are nothing but things I’ve listened to hundreds of times since it’s recommending a ton of top 100s from past decades. Yes I like them but god bless, I don’t want to only listen to them more then 60% of the time

Dropped songs

Ruined
by Boo767 on 2021/10/17 22:51
Songza was amazing, so I was worried when it was absorbed into Google Music. It was actually fine, though; really it just added premade playlists to Google Music. But YouTube Music is huge step backwards. It’s next to impossible to identify your uploaded music. You have to click through a million times to find anything. There’s no way that I can see to default search to my library. There are a ton of pop-ups about needing to upgrade to cast music. And you can’t cast playlists without upgrading, unlike with Spotify. Why would would I use this instead? Too late to the game, Google. Boo.
Deletes albums
by Hagavbhu on 2021/10/17 20:04
It randomly will delete one of the many albums I listen to and I don’t have time to be going through this app just to see what albums it deleted today
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
LOVE LOVE LOVE ITTTTT
by THEREALISTRATER on 2021/10/17 18:31
This app is literally irresistible! I love being able to keep my playlist organized, along with listening off screen and downloading and NO COMMERCIALS (for those w premium SO WORTH IT!!) and being connected through my regular youtube app! Alright we’ll I was actually just abt to listen to some music & haha the review question popped up! So go ahead and click that install button!
Something won’t let me sign in?
by delilahsparkle on 2021/10/17 17:03
Please help or tell the app to lemme sign in but I did sign in because there was error that I kept pressing it but it just did not sign me in?
Uncomfortable dark theme

The default dark theme is SO uncomfortable. Can you provide an option to change theme like light theme?

This app is a prank
by Thatguy0134 on 2021/10/17 12:04
Just use other music apps…. Once you download it u’ll understand immediately xD
Great app just need more songs
by Withatwist3000 on 2021/10/17 11:58
I like the app; It just needs more song variety when playing radio. I can almost guess the next song when song X is playing.
ehh
by AlanHughes on 2021/10/17 09:14
There still are no tabs to separate Youtube Playlists / Uploaded Playlists. I bookmark playlists in Chrome to keep them separate, but it would be nice if you were able to just save them all within you Youtube account. Any song or songs you tell to "Play Next" will just pause when you get to that song. You have to navigate back to Youtube Music and press play again. *Update: Recently play next songs just get ignored and it continues playing the rest of the album or playlist as was. Regular Youtube videos and playlists still show up as unplayable music with no option to mark them as non-music playlists. And a lot of music videos don't show up as music. When you go to artist pages it lists all of their songs in order by albums, but when you play them, they play completely out of order. Almost every time I open an album or playlist I've downloaded, it tells me I have to "refresh" it, but the gives you this scary warning like something bad might happen if you do, and you just have no idea what it is doing or why. *Update: This really became the last straw, this is just to infuriating to keep dealing with and I reluctantly decided to go back to syncing my music through itunes to my ipad, which I really really did not want to do. Doesn't seem to overheat my ipad the way the Google Music app did, so that's good. The search function also stopped working. It will show results for Youtube Music, but not from your own library.
Does not work with your phone closed
by musical stripes on 2021/10/17 05:39
I hate that I can’t shut down my phone while playing music or leave the app like the free version of Spotify is better
Great app, some improvements could be made
by hermyworm23 on 2021/10/17 01:48
I have used YouTube Music for a while now and it’s a great service for streaming music. However, there are some improvements that could be made to make it even better. The first one would be having lyrics automatically match where in the song you currently are. Other music services have already done this so adding this could raise you closer to the competition. Having a more customizable GUI would also be a great feature to add. Also, when switching between the music video and audio can be buggy at times and have latency in between switching periods. Sometimes the audio will cut out during this and require a restart of the app (this does no happen often though).
Bring gpm back
by jacobsparrow on 2021/10/17 01:08
Literally nobody likes this we’re only using it cuz we have our entire libraries on here. Lack of integration with uploads and streaming library and inexcusable ui makes this overall worse. What do I know I’m just a random user making a simple review somebody’s gotta bring gpm back change.org gofundme idk bring the better music service back Edit: also censors certain explicit uploads for some reason
App is great, but this is what needs to improve..
by Kai Sprance on 2021/10/17 00:40
The app overall is a great app for listening to music but sometimes my songs just disappear out of my playlist and just reappear later. This is very annoying because most of my favorite songs disappear… That’s all🙂 PS make the songs louder😊
Let’s be real
by Derrick702 on 2021/10/16 23:45
We’re only using this app cause we have YouTube premium. There’s so many stupid flaws and interface issues that prove it’s just Google trying to have hands in everything. The app blows and it’s annoying. That said I’ll keep using it cause I’m not paying for Spotify or Apple Music if I’m paying for you’ve premium.
PLEASE ADD REPEAT FUNCTIONALITY
by oceans2021 on 2021/10/16 21:58
Please make users able to repeat songs when casting songs to external wireless devices. The only reason I have spotify is because this app does not have that function on ios or android.
This is great
by ajhdgjsjwjsj18488428 on 2021/10/16 19:45
Alright lemme just make sum clear this is so great no ads and has good quality every thing and a lot of things so it is good
It won’t load songs
by jarms1984 on 2021/10/16 19:28
It’s always been a great app up until a few weeks ago, when I pick a song it just sits there like it’s going to play but stalls at 0:00 FOREVER. It’s not loading, I’ve got great service on my phone and at my house so there’s literally no reason why one of the biggest apps in the App Store should be bugging out like this. Fix it.
F**k Apple Music
by DYLBONE55 on 2021/10/16 18:17
YOUTUBE RED YOUTUBE MUSIC YOU CAN USE YOUTUBE ANYWHERE THAT HAS INTERNET AND YOUTUBE!!! YOUTUBE HAS EVERY SONG YOU CAN THINK OF NOTHING IS BETTER FOR MUSIC THAN YOUTUBE RED/MUSIC!!!!!!!! NOTHING! Interface very intuitive and not confusing at all. 6 STARS!
it’s ok
by Lili Salem on 2021/10/16 16:39
I’ve used it for a while, and it’s been alright. Sometimes, it’ll just stop a song when it hits the 1 minute mark, and then I have to go and unpause it. And sometimes, it won’t automatically play the next song, so I have to do it myself.
Love YouTube Music (except)
by RetiredTechy on 2021/10/16 16:11
I use YouTube music every day. I have a subscription that I share with my family and they consider one of my best gifts! My exception is I was rolled over from Google Music. I liked their stations better and it was easier to use. If someone is reading this from YouTube, I hope you go back and look at what you left behind. It was a better platform.

Love the integration
by Princeleumas on 2021/10/16 12:23
Love this app it’s intuitive. However I don’t like that after you close the app and open it back up you won’t be back to that playlist you were on or even the last song playing. I would love to open the app and continue where I left off.
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 bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
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.
You can listen to music with this
by delta airport on 2021/08/13 19:16
Yes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Great app, big flaws
by c*dot on 2021/09/22 07:19
This is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment. Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place. Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are.
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.
This app is below average
by grizzlemynizzle on 2021/09/06 23:21
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far
Poor substitute
by NathanFilz on 2021/03/13 06:46
The company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed. Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play. Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer.
Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this app
by dantee925 on 2021/07/26 15:41
The only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth.
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.
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....
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?
Good app. One Dealbreaker Flaw
by Electromagnet83 on 2021/08/24 13:30
This app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should. What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc. My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service.
Great app but needs improvement
by Raise sell prices on 2021/08/05 13:10
I love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
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.
Why did we get a step down?!
by rdzielinski on 2021/05/18 05:17
I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around.
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.
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
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.
Start from radio
by Salem Kane on 2021/09/12 07:48
I really appreciate the app a lot, i just wish the “start from radio” would play songs more related to the theme and the sound of the song you started it with, or maybe that could be a separate feature, overall the song recommendation are good at showing me new things. Don’t get rid of how the radio functions its still nice and convenient, but maybe a new feature that allows you to start the radio based around the same theme and mood as the started song and not just same genre. I don’t know how making apps work. So if it’s more complicated to change or add in it’s totally fine, I appreciate the work that has gone into the app.
If you have premium, just use the regular app
by Lizzie Licious on 2021/10/06 10:06
In the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that. My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT. Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app. Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?
Getting Better
by rajohns on 2021/10/09 14:33
This app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars. For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track. I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update.
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
Love it.. except
by Christian369 on 2021/02/09 03:25
Love everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server [400]“. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list.
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.
Queue/Songs no longer available
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/07/15 12:47
The add to queue doesn’t seem to work properly or maybe how you would think it would work. It seems like if you start playing a playlist, and you queue a song it goes to the very end of when the entire playlist is played. I would have thought it would queue the songs to play next. You could do this by adding multiple songs with the “play next” option, but then you need to know the reverse order you want the songs to play. Also there is no swipe control to queue songs. I’m not entirely sure what is going on, but occasionally songs in my playlist become unavailable. It doesn’t make sense because you can go look up the same song and find it available in search. What is causing this?
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
Could be better
by Momo Sakura on 2021/06/08 18:02
This is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :)
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!
Needs improving
by WD4L1988 on 2021/05/07 09:23
I don’t understand why we can add full albums to our library, but we can’t delete individual songs from albums within the library. That makes no sense at all. I don’t always like full albums and deleting songs is much easier than skipping them every time they play. Also the alphabet off to the side in the library would be helpful when searching for songs. And why don’t we have the option to put songs by artists in alphabetical order when we click their name in our library? Maybe everyone doesn’t want songs in order by album. I love the amount of music on the app and how organized things are, but these are major issues that are turn offs. If it weren’t for the fact that I can get a lot of music on this app that isn’t available elsewhere I would’ve been cancelled my subscription. Please fix this ASAP.
Downloads are a pain
by RettopMK on 2021/01/27 18:08
A decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple.
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.
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.
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
Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.
by rachelvest91 on 2021/10/07 21:26
The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago.
worst streaming app by far
by Belwil0004 on 2021/02/25 16:07
There are literally so many things wrong with this app. First of all, when casting to a device the queue gets absolutely destroyed, and usually doesn’t even play the songs I lined up. If I want to listen to my playlists, I have to go through like 5 different screens just to do so. The recently played is hardly ever accurate as well. The “update playlist” option ruins the whole playlist if it was in a purposeful order, it just resets it. My biggest issue with it is that it hardly ever plays the songs I line up. Don’t give a “play next” or “add to queue” option if it’s NOT GOING TO WORK. Just some things to think about. Google Play was incredibly better.
Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15

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!

Background refresh not working
by Val Libra on 2021/10/22 15:20
I don't know what's going on but everytime I listen to music and I would have to stop it even if it's for a couple of seconds it's gone. As if background refresh don't work. I would have to start all back over looking for the playlist or music I was listening to and start over. It's kinda annoying. I love you guys and been there since Google music. Please fix.
Bad update
by hkphooey66 on 2021/10/22 14:52
Great update. Now the app crashes after about 30 seconds of playing music. Good job Apple and Google☹️
Best App Ever
by DebsforHim on 2021/10/22 13:55
I can listen to varied and new music every time I launch it! The music is to my taste and if I really like a song, I can download it! Beats Apple Music Nd Amazon music hands down!
Some off center UI elements
by Amit-sangwan on 2021/10/22 13:15
This app is a very neat app, a very intuitive interface. But in latest update that lower UI elements are hidden behind the multitasking bar. (Music, explore and library ) icons seem positioned too low towards the edge of display. Apart from that a solid app.
Good
by Fireduck47 on 2021/10/22 12:59
I really like this. I can pick out the song I like. What I don’t like is I cannot have it run in background when receiving text messages or to look up things or to even check my email. So I have to resort back to Pandora.😞
Since 15.02 offline music download not working
by j0llygruntt on 2021/10/22 12:13
Even when connected to Wi-Fi network, whenever I click to download any playlist for offline listening the songs get stuck in “waiting “. It worked just fine before the update. Please fix asap! I’d rate 4 or 5 without this bug.
Great variety, super glitchy and inconvenient
by @justicemalik on 2021/10/22 12:10
One of the biggest music selections out of all music apps and has some cool features. However, it’s SUPER glitchy. Once you open the app and start playing my music, you can’t open any other apps or YouTube Music will crash. The same thing happens every once in a while when you get a notification, or just for no apparent reason at all. When you add a new song to a playlist, it populates at the very bottom, so you have to scroll through all of your songs just to get to it. When you exit the app while after pausing a song then open the app later, it doesn’t keep playing the song where you left off. I really love the app, I just wish the glitches and inconveniences could be fixed.
Long ads
by Cartercr on 2021/10/22 12:01
YouTube Music is a music streaming service, correct? That means we should be able to put our phones down and just listen to music, correct? I understand ads, every streaming service has them, but why are we getting 10 minute long videos under the guise of an ad? I listen to music at work and honestly these long ads are making me want something else. I can’t press the skip button at work, so I just end up closing the app in frustration. Fix this YouTube. You can do better.

Love the suggested songs
by abzalot on 2021/10/21 13:31
I’ve been using YouTube music since it started (came o we from google music when it switched). I love that YouTube music knows the type of songs I like and suggested new ones to add to my playlists.
Almost there
by Jmo@1 on 2021/10/21 13:27
Great selection of music and a good interface. I really wish that the video in landscape mode was larger and the list was smaller with less white space (on iPad). Also, it would be great for when I am watching videos if it would default to video vs just audio for the next song. Please! I am a Premium subscriber!

Used To Love You
by Lenny Adelaide on 2021/10/21 06:02
This was going to be favorite way to organize music once I got around to remaking my playlists. By far the best monthly membership I ever got, I can’t live without it. Biggest draw: huge variety! Did your favourite songs from other apps disappear? It’s probably on YouTube Music in some form or other. 2nd favorite feature: The queue is so easy to rearrange and add to. So much easier to change the order of songs before I commit and edit a playlist. Constructive criticism: Really sad that you can no longer see what year a song came out when you look at the lyrics section. That was so great, even if lyrics were not available. The Android users were missing out on this but I guess we’re in the same boat now. Except they seem to be able to recall a queue if an accidental tap starts a whole new playlist… Can I get that? Great song suggestions in radio mode generally (surprising when you listen to my weird stuff), but they are not consistent so being able to recall would make me so happy. I avoid the “My Mix” options, they seem to contain a lot of songs I specifically avoid but haven’t given thumbs down to yet.

No disable autoplay feature
by spotball31 on 2021/10/20 20:41
This app is only for those looking to listen to algorithm reccomendations, because there’s no way to turn them off! I even looked for some workarounds on the web and it appears they’ve been programmed out! I’d like to listen to one song and stop. I’ll even watch an ad to do that! Is that too much to ask?!
Queue app issues
by zerothdegree on 2021/10/20 17:09
There are lots of missing features and annoying things missing from YouTube music. One of the biggest issues I have is the queue. You can’t save your queue to a playlist. Pretty much making playlists is the only way to go. If I spend two hours putting stuff in my queue and accidentally click on a song my whole queue is erased and replaced. Queue often vanishes or fails to load. Ever since update 4.50.1 the queue goes blank. Tracks still there but you pull it up and can’t see the list of songs. There’s a ton of other issues that feel like common sense to fix and I know have been complained about a lot since the forced switch from Google play music to YouTube music. Maybe listen to your subscribers and fix these things. Google has a bad habit of releasing services with bugs and just abandoning them and ignoring the users reviews and complaints.
Deficiencies
by cevmus on 2021/10/20 14:04
i see two deficits of the app, one Add2Queue func doesn’t work at all, the other is, by default it supposed to play song version not video as it is music app.
Pauses itself once a song
by anulbead on 2021/10/20 13:01
No reason just pauses itself I have good Internet but other than that awesome
Update
by Beagleserena on 2021/10/20 12:16
The new update will not let you close out the songs. The x is gone that close the song that you had open.
Poor widgets
by ankushjain2001 on 2021/10/20 11:18
The note playing song didn’t update in widgets. Instead the first manually played song stays there. Worst part is that, if you click on it, the song restarts. Why doesn’t it update? And why restart? Doesn’t serve any purpose.

My favorite streaming service
by power2uth on 2021/10/20 03:37
I’ve tried Deezer, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora plan, and Amazon. Pandora, beautiful UI , but not great UE. Deezer, you can only upload one song at a time of your own music. Spotify, no real personal music collection upload solution. Amazon, UI is a mess. Apple Music, I hate the UI, although it’s very well done. I really like YTM’s UI, and although their incorporation of the personal music vault isn’t as elegant as Google Play Music’s was, it’s still pretty good. Everybody has their own use cases, and YTM works for me. I really like it, especially on the iPhone where I can use AirPlay to stream to Sonos.

Great for your music needs
by Sir_Ronaldo on 2021/10/20 01:39

Decent app, but some things aren’t quite the same.
by Akira R. on 2021/10/19 22:45
Because I only use the YouTube liked playlist to listen to my “favorites” when it comes to music, the YouTube Music app isn’t really needed. This isn’t the case for most other people however. I still use the YouTube Music app for two reasons. One, it’s faster to access (on most occasions), and two, the music shuffle button is way more randomized. On the other hand, there are a few things I dislike about it when compared to just using the YouTube app. First, moving songs to different playlists is more tedious and really should share the same checked box list as standard YouTube. This also makes it easier to put the selected song (or songs!?) into multiple playlists without having to make multiple transactions. Two, I really feel as though the app would make a bit more sense if it was implemented into YouTube itself considering all your playlists are siphoned to and fro both apps. Three, the app is unappealing to look at compared to other competitive music applications. In conclusion, it’s a decent app, but some polishing on music playlists and general aesthetic would jumpstart its overall usage.
Missing repeat button
by Em0223 on 2021/10/19 22:32
I used to love google music but when it switched to YouTube music the app doesn’t let me repeat any songs. The repeat button disappears when you stream music to google device or Bluetooth speaker. This is very inconvenient because I use it in my kids rooms at night. In have an iPhone ( not sure if that’s a factor). Very disappointing.
Best way to listen to music!
by JonnylovesMariah on 2021/10/19 21:16
I LOVE YouTube music. The option to switch between album track and music video is amazing! You can share playlists with friends! Stream to a tv/monitor to share/create playlists as a group. A++
Good app
by jackson2192 on 2021/10/19 20:49
I like the app and would love to make it my only music app but almost every single time I leave the app and try to go back into it it restarts like it was closed and it’s extremely frustrating. Keep it in memory so it doesn’t close and I’ll use it over other apps until then it’s too frustrating to do so.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Love it but could use work
by KasperBlack on 2021/10/19 15:23
I have been using this app for year's and it's an amazing app. I love the fact that I can listen to my downloaded music when I don't have service. But there are a few things that need work. First off I hate that when I answer a call it kicks me off of my music. Like it used to just pause it and I could resume my music after the call but now I have to go back to the app and restart my mix and it's super annoying when that happens while I'm driving. Another thing is that have to keep re-downloading the same playlist over and over again. I already downloaded the songs so why do I have to keep downloading the same content... Other than that I love this app.

by Dre Spins on 2021/10/19 12:20
I love YouTube music more than all other streaming services. I just wish i was able to create playlists based on the songs that have been automatically selected after I play my first song or add it to play next. Also it would be great if I could filter all music to get the clean edited in my search results first. I would still recommend this app to anyone

Apple CarPlay Features Missing
by Nefarious_Blu on 2021/10/19 06:13
Please read this review… Can we please get YouTube Music updated for Apple CarPlay? It’s missing features that Apple Music has. Example: The “Create a Station” based off the song that’s currently playing, “Add to Library” feature, “Add to Playlist” feature, and etc. These are features that should be added asap. I would really appreciate this. I’ve been a paying customer for 7 years before it went from Google Play Music to Youtube Music.

by 2k1 Hime on 2021/10/19 01:32
Yeah it’s nice to have all your playlists and personalized music choices right there, but I really don’t think I should have to pay actual money in order to listen to my music while using another app. That’s one thing I look for in music apps: A way to have stuff playing in the background while I do other things, or if I want to turn the screen off to save battery. I’m totally fine with ads between songs, just PLEASE don’t lock background playback behind a paywall!

by 183384838538 on 2021/10/19 01:31

But that quickly changed two weeks later when I couldn’t even open the app. When I was able to even OPEN the app, it just told me that something was wrong with the app but their working on it. And it’s honestly just a waste of storage. Do not recommend.

Frustrating
by Of_Elizondo on 2021/10/18 22:21
Literally one of the worst music apps I’ve ever had. I’m always having to re-search songs I don’t want to add to a playlist, but still want to listen to (as if a play history is impossible to include), always being recommended songs I don’t care for, and the radio stations are constantly taking a turn for the worst. Never had these problems with Google Play. Might have to strictly stick with Spotify.

Missing Basic Functionality in CarPlay
by jasperthefriendly on 2021/10/18 17:37
I loved the Android version of this app, but the iOS one is very very poor in comparison, particularly for CarPlay. I've sent feedback and spoken to support about this but no success. - Carplay only shows "Your Likes" playlist and none of the others I've made - Can't even see a basic queue of songs in Carplay, you're stuck with only seeing the current song in "Now Playing" - Can't search in the Carplay app! Have to use Siri, who frequently fails to find albums or songs

Worse than play music
by musicmattmetalman on 2021/10/18 14:36
I used google play music for about 3-4 years before the mandatory switch to YouTube music. I listen to music constantly all day at work at home in the car etc. This app has a lot of glitches and bugs. Downloads do not work properly all the time and fail to load even tho it says downloaded. The radios you can select are by far the worst thing about this app. I can select radios for 3 different bands and they will have the same songs in different order. Maybe it’s an algorithm issue but I choose the radios to hear more music not the same stuff over and over again like local radio stations. It’s pretty disappointing considering that it’s a step down from google play music. Not a step forward. Going to try a few different music apps to see what is best

Very close, but not Play Music
by Kytkad on 2021/10/18 06:11
Google play music, literally been paying for it since the start. One single feature I miss is the I’m feeling lucky button. When yt music was added as an option I tried it but went back to gpm. Super mix is not the same and there is no similar dice option in the explore section. I love looking for new music similar to what I already listen to and hitting that little dice did its job perfectly. I spend more time skipping tracks now then before, I’m no longer enjoying listening to music. I’ve tried liking more tracks but my stations are nothing but things I’ve listened to hundreds of times since it’s recommending a ton of top 100s from past decades. Yes I like them but god bless, I don’t want to only listen to them more then 60% of the time

Ruined
by Boo767 on 2021/10/17 22:51
Songza was amazing, so I was worried when it was absorbed into Google Music. It was actually fine, though; really it just added premade playlists to Google Music. But YouTube Music is huge step backwards. It’s next to impossible to identify your uploaded music. You have to click through a million times to find anything. There’s no way that I can see to default search to my library. There are a ton of pop-ups about needing to upgrade to cast music. And you can’t cast playlists without upgrading, unlike with Spotify. Why would would I use this instead? Too late to the game, Google. Boo.
Deletes albums
by Hagavbhu on 2021/10/17 20:04
It randomly will delete one of the many albums I listen to and I don’t have time to be going through this app just to see what albums it deleted today
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.

ehh
by AlanHughes on 2021/10/17 09:14
There still are no tabs to separate Youtube Playlists / Uploaded Playlists. I bookmark playlists in Chrome to keep them separate, but it would be nice if you were able to just save them all within you Youtube account. Any song or songs you tell to "Play Next" will just pause when you get to that song. You have to navigate back to Youtube Music and press play again. *Update: Recently play next songs just get ignored and it continues playing the rest of the album or playlist as was. Regular Youtube videos and playlists still show up as unplayable music with no option to mark them as non-music playlists. And a lot of music videos don't show up as music. When you go to artist pages it lists all of their songs in order by albums, but when you play them, they play completely out of order. Almost every time I open an album or playlist I've downloaded, it tells me I have to "refresh" it, but the gives you this scary warning like something bad might happen if you do, and you just have no idea what it is doing or why. *Update: This really became the last straw, this is just to infuriating to keep dealing with and I reluctantly decided to go back to syncing my music through itunes to my ipad, which I really really did not want to do. Doesn't seem to overheat my ipad the way the Google Music app did, so that's good. The search function also stopped working. It will show results for Youtube Music, but not from your own library.
Does not work with your phone closed
by musical stripes on 2021/10/17 05:39
I hate that I can’t shut down my phone while playing music or leave the app like the free version of Spotify is better
Great app, some improvements could be made
by hermyworm23 on 2021/10/17 01:48
I have used YouTube Music for a while now and it’s a great service for streaming music. However, there are some improvements that could be made to make it even better. The first one would be having lyrics automatically match where in the song you currently are. Other music services have already done this so adding this could raise you closer to the competition. Having a more customizable GUI would also be a great feature to add. Also, when switching between the music video and audio can be buggy at times and have latency in between switching periods. Sometimes the audio will cut out during this and require a restart of the app (this does no happen often though).
Bring gpm back
by jacobsparrow on 2021/10/17 01:08
Literally nobody likes this we’re only using it cuz we have our entire libraries on here. Lack of integration with uploads and streaming library and inexcusable ui makes this overall worse. What do I know I’m just a random user making a simple review somebody’s gotta bring gpm back change.org gofundme idk bring the better music service back Edit: also censors certain explicit uploads for some reason

The app overall is a great app for listening to music but sometimes my songs just disappear out of my playlist and just reappear later. This is very annoying because most of my favorite songs disappear… That’s all🙂 PS make the songs louder😊
Let’s be real
by Derrick702 on 2021/10/16 23:45
We’re only using this app cause we have YouTube premium. There’s so many stupid flaws and interface issues that prove it’s just Google trying to have hands in everything. The app blows and it’s annoying. That said I’ll keep using it cause I’m not paying for Spotify or Apple Music if I’m paying for you’ve premium.
PLEASE ADD REPEAT FUNCTIONALITY
by oceans2021 on 2021/10/16 21:58
Please make users able to repeat songs when casting songs to external wireless devices. The only reason I have spotify is because this app does not have that function on ios or android.
This is great
by ajhdgjsjwjsj18488428 on 2021/10/16 19:45
Alright lemme just make sum clear this is so great no ads and has good quality every thing and a lot of things so it is good
It won’t load songs
by jarms1984 on 2021/10/16 19:28
It’s always been a great app up until a few weeks ago, when I pick a song it just sits there like it’s going to play but stalls at 0:00 FOREVER. It’s not loading, I’ve got great service on my phone and at my house so there’s literally no reason why one of the biggest apps in the App Store should be bugging out like this. Fix it.
F**k Apple Music
by DYLBONE55 on 2021/10/16 18:17
YOUTUBE RED YOUTUBE MUSIC YOU CAN USE YOUTUBE ANYWHERE THAT HAS INTERNET AND YOUTUBE!!! YOUTUBE HAS EVERY SONG YOU CAN THINK OF NOTHING IS BETTER FOR MUSIC THAN YOUTUBE RED/MUSIC!!!!!!!! NOTHING! Interface very intuitive and not confusing at all. 6 STARS!
it’s ok
by Lili Salem on 2021/10/16 16:39
I’ve used it for a while, and it’s been alright. Sometimes, it’ll just stop a song when it hits the 1 minute mark, and then I have to go and unpause it. And sometimes, it won’t automatically play the next song, so I have to do it myself.
Love YouTube Music (except)
by RetiredTechy on 2021/10/16 16:11
I use YouTube music every day. I have a subscription that I share with my family and they consider one of my best gifts! My exception is I was rolled over from Google Music. I liked their stations better and it was easier to use. If someone is reading this from YouTube, I hope you go back and look at what you left behind. It was a better platform.

Way the best music app ever created!
Love the integration
by Princeleumas on 2021/10/16 12:23
Love this app it’s intuitive. However I don’t like that after you close the app and open it back up you won’t be back to that playlist you were on or even the last song playing. I would love to open the app and continue where I left off.
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 bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
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.
You can listen to music with this
by delta airport on 2021/08/13 19:16
Yes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Great app, big flaws
by c*dot on 2021/09/22 07:19
This is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment. Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place. Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are.
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.
This app is below average
by grizzlemynizzle on 2021/09/06 23:21
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far
Poor substitute
by NathanFilz on 2021/03/13 06:46
The company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed. Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play. Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer.
Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this app
by dantee925 on 2021/07/26 15:41
The only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth.
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.
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....
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?
Good app. One Dealbreaker Flaw
by Electromagnet83 on 2021/08/24 13:30
This app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should. What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc. My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service.
Great app but needs improvement
by Raise sell prices on 2021/08/05 13:10
I love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
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.
Why did we get a step down?!
by rdzielinski on 2021/05/18 05:17
I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around.
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.
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
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.
Start from radio
by Salem Kane on 2021/09/12 07:48
I really appreciate the app a lot, i just wish the “start from radio” would play songs more related to the theme and the sound of the song you started it with, or maybe that could be a separate feature, overall the song recommendation are good at showing me new things. Don’t get rid of how the radio functions its still nice and convenient, but maybe a new feature that allows you to start the radio based around the same theme and mood as the started song and not just same genre. I don’t know how making apps work. So if it’s more complicated to change or add in it’s totally fine, I appreciate the work that has gone into the app.
If you have premium, just use the regular app
by Lizzie Licious on 2021/10/06 10:06
In the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that. My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT. Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app. Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?
Getting Better
by rajohns on 2021/10/09 14:33
This app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars. For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track. I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update.
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
Love it.. except
by Christian369 on 2021/02/09 03:25
Love everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server [400]“. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list.
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.
Queue/Songs no longer available
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/07/15 12:47
The add to queue doesn’t seem to work properly or maybe how you would think it would work. It seems like if you start playing a playlist, and you queue a song it goes to the very end of when the entire playlist is played. I would have thought it would queue the songs to play next. You could do this by adding multiple songs with the “play next” option, but then you need to know the reverse order you want the songs to play. Also there is no swipe control to queue songs. I’m not entirely sure what is going on, but occasionally songs in my playlist become unavailable. It doesn’t make sense because you can go look up the same song and find it available in search. What is causing this?
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
Could be better
by Momo Sakura on 2021/06/08 18:02
This is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :)
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!
Needs improving
by WD4L1988 on 2021/05/07 09:23
I don’t understand why we can add full albums to our library, but we can’t delete individual songs from albums within the library. That makes no sense at all. I don’t always like full albums and deleting songs is much easier than skipping them every time they play. Also the alphabet off to the side in the library would be helpful when searching for songs. And why don’t we have the option to put songs by artists in alphabetical order when we click their name in our library? Maybe everyone doesn’t want songs in order by album. I love the amount of music on the app and how organized things are, but these are major issues that are turn offs. If it weren’t for the fact that I can get a lot of music on this app that isn’t available elsewhere I would’ve been cancelled my subscription. Please fix this ASAP.
Downloads are a pain
by RettopMK on 2021/01/27 18:08
A decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple.
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.
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.
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
Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.
by rachelvest91 on 2021/10/07 21:26
The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago.
worst streaming app by far
by Belwil0004 on 2021/02/25 16:07
There are literally so many things wrong with this app. First of all, when casting to a device the queue gets absolutely destroyed, and usually doesn’t even play the songs I lined up. If I want to listen to my playlists, I have to go through like 5 different screens just to do so. The recently played is hardly ever accurate as well. The “update playlist” option ruins the whole playlist if it was in a purposeful order, it just resets it. My biggest issue with it is that it hardly ever plays the songs I line up. Don’t give a “play next” or “add to queue” option if it’s NOT GOING TO WORK. Just some things to think about. Google Play was incredibly better.
Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15

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!
