Annoying
by ddcxZbevb am hvvz on 2020/08/13 17:57
For some reason all this Billie eyelish stuff is in my recommended and a lot of other random songs I’ve never listened to I haven’t even listened to the artist or anything like it. Why is this happening?
Displays album artwork w/ the respect it deserves—yet penalizes exploration
by ByteBooty on 2020/08/13 17:09
Google Play UI is hideous in comparison, especially when it crops the album artwork and horrid orange in far too many elements. I had my gripes switching over at first but am glad I did overall. It’s as if I’ve gotten used to having a giant thorn in my eye for years and some brilliant design team at google removed it. 🙏 BUT there are still serious concerns over finding new music. I used to be able to see “recommended new releases” with +20 albums at my fingertips. Now I’m forced to go through one song at a time like a dopamine addled tik tok addict. C’mon! I don’t want 20 of your playlists which only pick from popular artists, I want to explore and see what exists. I feel suffocated by algos picking things for me I don’t want. I’ve given them a fair chance and their recommendations are still terrible. This app is too close to tik tok and refuses to embrace the incredible potential of having everything and anything available to you at once. The infinite queue function isn’t bad, but overall penalizes exploration. Massive downgrade in my opinion. Makes me want to switch to Spotify or Apple Music really bad. YT has until the end of the year or I’m switching and never looking back.
Stop deleting the bad reviews!
by v8dreaming on 2020/08/13 15:22
Should have left Google Play Music alone. More expensive than GPM. Extremely limited playlists with sponsored, unrelated artists inserted. Playlists are redundant due to lack of artists. Seems to only want to play the most popular artists. Forced to pay for app to work in background. Forced to create a YouTube channel to transfer GPM. App layout is horrible. Not user friendly. I’ve compared GPM to YTM and keep going back to GPM. When I can no longer use GPM, I will be looking elsewhere, or possibly just no longer use a streaming service at all. YTM is garbage.
Bring Google Play Music back.
by @Michael_Barnes on 2020/08/13 15:02
This app is horrible. Randomly stops playing and loses all context of the playlist I was just on. Pausing a song for some period of time and I have to open the app again to get it to play. Google Play Music app was so much better. This is disappointing.
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.
OK app
by platypuslover111 on 2020/08/13 12:24
So I got this app to listen to music while using other apps. It worked for a month then said I had to pay to be able to use it off the app.I’m very annoyed I don’t want to pay to listening to music.
Google home fix
by AustinSch on 2020/08/13 12:19
Needs to be updated, it works with my google home, but not as accurate when Google Play Music. Please fix.
I used to love this app...😡🤬
by Amy of the night on 2020/08/13 12:16
I want to listen to the music WITHOUT running my battery down but now I can’t!!!🤬IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER BEFORE THE UPDATE!! You see I get emotional about music and IT CAME TO THE POINT THAT I STARTED TO CRY AND DELETED IT AND I WILL NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS TRASHY APP EVER AGAIN!!🤬🤬
No music in backround
by 😎😏😡😦 on 2020/08/13 06:16
Theirs realistically no point to the app, you can’t even listen to music in the background while using other apps. At this point might as well still use Spotify or SoundCloud, with less ads and the ability to listen in the background
Pretty great application!!!
by Whicholalo on 2020/08/13 04:34
This is such a pretty great application for those who like to hear music of any genre at any age!!!
Last couple updates have sucked
by fndjsikf on 2020/08/13 03:03
Liked the app until the last couple updates as I can’t load anything now. I just get a sign in error message over and over again.

Coming from google music

I used google music to listen to my own music. The new app is a mess. It’s really horrible. Why can’t I just easily listen to my own music?
Will definitely refer anyone to YouTube music

Been A subscriber for a while na and I love you the music. Don’t use any other music app!

Good but could use some improvements
by jenebdhdmsbekwkhf on 2020/08/12 12:34
I wish that it would let me close out of the app and still listen to music like when I’m falling asleep I don’t want my screen time to go up. Just a little advice to make the app a little bit better rather than charging you for it

Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
The app is okay. I transferred all my music over from google play and I expected a better experience which was met half way. While it has its benefits there are a lot of down sides. Some artist pages are literally missing albums. For example Steven universe which has some of season one album in its top song list but you can’t find the album anywhere on their page. I also have another album from Steven universe which also isn’t on the artist page and when you click -go to artist- it takes to to the same page where the album literally does not exist. Another problem I have is I get notifications of artists that I have not subscribed to. I can get notified of their new songs but not the ones that I am subscribed to.
Best Music App Hands Down

Still needs a lot of work. The only reason to pay the subscription fee is to get the ad free YouTube.
Better than Spotify
by El Semental Ale on 2020/08/11 22:15
Very solid streaming platform of course based on YouTube I recommend it for get all that music that is hard to found in another apps like Spotify,Deezer etc.
Excellent app

They Took My Money
by PedoRacistoDementioCheeto on 2020/08/11 18:30
I checked out this app since my family was using it. I wanted to give it a try but after seeing the prices on the memberships I kinda backtracked and deleted the app. I was fine with soundcloud anyways. A day or two later I find out that $15 in my account had been taken from Youtube Music. It’s so outrageous that they didn’t notify you of an auto-renew after downloading the app. Hell, they shouldn’t even HAVE the auto-renew to begin with! It’s a horrible feature. And I don’t get how it works even after I’ve deleted the app. tldr; deleted Youtube Music, it auto-renewed my money even tho i deleted the app, wasted 15 bucks. Not happy at all.

by Holls01 on 2020/08/11 16:36
I was one of those that switched over to Google Music when it first came out and have enjoyed using it since. Now with this forced move to YTM and the lousy interface I am going back to iTunes. All I am looking for is a good interface to play my music and this just doesn't do it for me.
There’s a couple fixes you need to do

So I go on YouTube music I go select my account but sign in error so I select another account and then something wrong we are working on it please fix it
Albums view within Artist?
by ZaWheelZ on 2020/08/11 14:48
When inside the Artist section, its just a long list of songs. Really need to be able to view each album. Until then, this is unusable
“Downloads” function is limiting and confusing. Disappointing.
by The Pist Gamer on 2020/08/11 06:53
TL;DR: New layout is wonderful, but offline features/“Downloads” function is awful. I love the new layout—back in 2015, 2016, whatever, it came down to a choice between YT music and Google Play. Due to the interface, Google Play won easily. I understand the decision to combine the two, and I like the way they're slowly easing you into moving over. Despite all of this, the way YT music is set up is still jarring. Don’t get me wrong—it’s beautiful, I like the black background Google Play never had, and the auto play feature is wonderful, but the way the “downloads” feature works on this app is atrocious! It makes no sense that I can access and sort by Playlists, Songs, Artists, Albums, etc **only** on wifi. Why is it that this feature is stripped away when I don’t have an internet connection? Without a connection, I am **forced** to **exclusively** use the Downloads section of the app. In the Downloads section, Every Single Thing I’ve downloaded (albums, playlists, singles) is sorted into a mass of chaos only distinguished by alphabetical order... which is really hard to understand, as Google Play did not have this issue...? This makes it very hard to navigate, further backed by the fact that there isn’t even a way to quickly jump to a certain letter of the alphabet? Just guess and check, or scroll all day if you want to reach “Z” I suppose... This is nit picking, but why when I download a song/album is it not automatically added to my library? Kind of ridiculous that I’d want to listen to something offline, but not want it to be in my library... the reverse is easier to understand, but the reverse is not the problem. It seems that they refined the app to have a much better layout, but left out all the best features of the one they’re trying to get rid of. Disappointing.

I’m done with Google. Without a pixel watch and no music app your phones are no good to me. Apple offers everything I need.
What is the point of a music app if you can’t run it in the background?
by dinodylan1 on 2020/08/11 05:36
The most basic feature is playing music in the background, but if you want to do that you must pay the subscription, so there goes using it in the car. Ads after and before every song, some can be skipped after 5 seconds so you’ll be pulling out your phone every 2-3 minutes. It really seems like a cash grab.

by abcdefghijklmnopqrs...tu.v.. on 2020/08/11 01:51

Too difficult to use
by Yslabonita on 2020/08/10 21:00
The fact that I have to scroll and scroll to find a song I want to play from my library (because there’s no quick find on the side) is so frustrating.

Dims Album art when Casting and no Album art swipe
by rlo123 on 2020/08/10 17:40
When you are casting, the album art is dimmed, layered behind the controls. The controls would not be necessary, but they down graded from Google Play Music when they left off the ability to swipe left/right on album art to skip forwards and backwards one song. Back to Google Play Music for me. If this isn’t fixed by the time Google Play is retired, I will be moving back to Spotify for sure.
Slow but steady improvement
by markbyrn on 2020/08/10 12:15
The YouTube music app has made slow improvements over time but still falls short of other music apps for ease of use. As with the YouTube app itself, the Home and Explore menus are fairly useless to me. Focus on showing me recommendations based on what I listen not what you want me to listen to. The artist subscription option is nice but there should be a dedicated unsubscribe option instead. A big plus is having the premium service.
Perfect !!!!!

does not play videos
by dudfits222 on 2020/08/10 09:46
i was looking for an app that played you tube music videos this app only plays music without videos it is youtube after all a video service if you are just going to play just music and no videos add it to the app name. if i wanted an app to just play music i would download pandora or the like.
Best Music App out
by Raycean on 2020/08/10 07:49
This is the best music app from user experience to the functions. If only yourube would pay artist more per stream then it would take over.
Great platform
by Ethan Caspillo on 2020/08/10 07:01
I’ve been with YouTube music since before it was a thing. I had google music for the longest time and then eventually got YouTube music when google bought them out. This app gives me great song recommendations and so many underground songs and leaks that both Spotify and Apple Music don’t have. Only issue is that I wish the app would outreach more and involve themselves in creating a YouTube music app for the Apple Watch and for the Mac, and also tiny details like being able to make custom art covers for playlists like how Apple Music allows you to do but besides that the app is amazing, and if they integrated the suggested it would be near to perfect.
All the tools you need
by Sinknthink on 2020/08/10 04:45
I will no longer use pandora. I love the way you can do more than one kind of list. You can pick an artist and either listen to the whole album or a radio station through them.You can download whatever song you’re listening to and it goes into an off-line library. You can like one and it will go into another Library for a online mix with your favorite songs. You can pick dislike for a song and it won’t play the song anymore. You can look up almost anybody that has an album or single and Youtube will have them on file. Thank you YouTube for this lovely musical set up.
great app!

Inferior to play music
by Mark Cuckerberg on 2020/08/10 00:32
Not sure why google is doing this. Inferior to google play in every way. This app does everything worse. It clutters up your YouTube history, and searching for music is a mess. Literally no one asked for this.
Not as good as google play
by michk72 on 2020/08/10 00:18
It seems there are ten extra steps to get anywhere. No index on your lists, so you’re scrolling forever; they recently changed how they display stuff by artists (now all songs are in one long list, and if the album you want to listen to isn’t on the top of their list, you have to take an extra step to get to the album listing. I have a lot of international artists and sometimes it’s easier to find what I want to listen to by album cover); playlists don’t automatically start over (there’s an auto play, but it doesn’t start the playlist over, it just plays random stuff YM thinks you might like, sometimes stuff I don’t even have in my library). Am one more terrible discovery away from switching music services.
Where is the Recently Added playlist?
by ORMomma on 2020/08/10 00:17
I’m reluctantly switching to this app because you’re getting rid of Google Play, which I have paid for and enjoyed for years, and already I notice my most-used feature is gone! Please consider adding “Recently Added” to your auto playlists. I use this playlist most often because it’s where I can find all the albums I’ve recently added to my library, and I can listen to them on shuffle. Please, please, PLEASE add this auto playlist to YT Music and I’ll be happier with this app. Thanks.
I really like it
by MiraculousFan01 on 2020/08/09 22:58

USELESS without youtube red/premium
by dat_Rasta on 2020/08/09 18:18
If you’ve got youtube red or whatever they feel like calling it nowadays, its actually just as dope as any other music service except you can stream yt videos ppl have uploaded like slowed and reverbed songs so thats pretty lovely actually
Holding my own music hostage
by Matt-05 on 2020/08/09 17:55
I own my own music, and you’re not letting me cast it without paying a subscription? I bought google speakers and cast devices under the premise that I could cast my music with the google play music app. This is absolutely absurd.
Google Play Music originator
by hamlife on 2020/08/09 16:49
It took a while to get use to. Definitely user error on my part I couldn’t figure out how to transfer my google play music. Make sure you go to settings and it has google music transfer option. I still really like the google play music app better but since this is going to be my only option I keep using it to get use to it.
WAS my favorite app :/
by nsjeuegdh on 2020/08/09 15:03
So,when I first downloaded it,I loved it cuz it was hands free,didn’t have to keep my phone on or change the song every time it ended and I got to make my own playlists then they made a update and it’s really annoying because when I want the simple pleasure of listening to music I have to make sure I don’t accidentally change the song so I have to hold it instead of just putting it in my pocket and letting it do what it do, so if they can just PLEASE make off screen a normal non having to buy premium to get regular music thing that would be great but other than that it’s ok.

Bring back Play Music
by IgorKolker on 2020/08/08 23:16
As a replacement for Play Music it’s total junk. A huge step backwards in functionality. Couldn’t the brains at Google figure out how to rebrand the music service without dropping all the features already developed and tested?

Great, but keep music up if the app closes
by Lollipops are blue64 on 2020/08/08 18:13
I love Youtube Music! The format is great, it is sleek, and I love the automated mixes. However, the one thing that gets me is if I close the app, whatever playlist or radio I had playing is gone. This is especially annoying if I have a radio or have curated the queue, something that cannot be easily gotten back.
Nah
by Alex Roeske on 2020/08/08 17:35
Literally the worst shuffle I’ve ever used, i have 650 songs on my playlist and it plays the same 10 when I hit shuffle, and after it’s done playing the 10 songs it just stops entirely and I can’t play another song without shuffling it again oh but wait, I can’t shuffle it again OR ILL HEAR THE SAME SONGS
ITS BETTER THAN, APPLE MUSIC
by James Doughboy Carter on 2020/08/08 16:18
Apple music gives you unlimited music but they also remove at anytime they please thats why i hated it plus when you dont PAY your monthly pay they LOCK THE WHOLE APP. But YOUTUBE MUSIC is so much better because they let you keep everything paid or not. I love that plus NO COMMERCIALS

Missing to many features
by Falcon1620 on 2020/08/08 07:51
Library origination is a disaster, recommendations is not as good at GPM and quality on music is not great. Overall it’s not bad but it’s a confusing mess. Steaming and apps work on some devices but not others. Your suppose to use the music tab on the YouTube app for some streaming boxes but some offer YTmusic and my speaker does not like cooperating either. I could research and fix some of these things but I’m moving to another service. Not worth it. It has potential but it has a really advanced since I tried it out last time and gave up on it. Overall just frustrated with Google’s lack of sticking with something and making improvements on it.
OK, but needs improvement.
by markisbeast1181 on 2020/08/08 01:10
It’s ok, but if Google wants me to stop using Play Music, then there’s a few things that need to be fixed. It takes way too many steps to get to my playlists compared to Play music, which has playlists front and center. When watching videos full screen, it is impossible to scrub through since the iOS gestures get triggered every time. If these issues are fixed, it would be excellent.
Good
by calvaria824 on 2020/08/07 23:04
Epically awesome
Some features I would really like
by transfering from google play on 2020/08/07 22:23
I want a thing that warns you when you are duplicating songs on your playlists. I also want a visual indication so I can easily see what song I’m listening too and where it is on an album or playlist. Finally I would like the recent activity to be device only. The reason I want this is my family shares an account and my recently played is getting full of songs and albums I don’t want to listen to or care about.

Should have subscribed to Spotify :((
MUST READ
by emilycheergirl on 2020/08/07 18:23
So this is a really good app bet the thing is that you can’t go off the app and the music will still be playing be if you do like that then I would say download Spotify
Great app, the pause and play function doesn't even work correctly.
by goobermensch on 2020/08/07 18:13
I like the app, but it's completely unusable in its current state. When you pause a track then try to play it again, half the time it will not play until you manually skip back 10 seconds in the song 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Horrendous app

Pathetic UI No filtering New by Genre Genre filter scrolls left to right Poor use of space Too expensive for premium services
Google is just money hungry!
by Lady Amethys on 2020/08/07 17:23
I would actually rate this app as a 5 star rating, but there is one major flaw to the app! In the free version you can’t listen to music while doing something else on your device. I just use Spotify when I want to listen to music while doing other operations on my iPad or phone. In a time where people are on fixed budgets, and there is a struggling economy Google wants to charge you a fee to listen to music in the background. Why pay a fee when there are so many other apps that let you listen to music in the background. I mean with as much money as Google brings in from adds and other paid services you would think Google could afford to let you listen to your music your way! So really Google is just greedy! I am writing this review while Jamming out to Everlast’s album Songs of the Ungrateful Dead on Spotify something you could never do on Google’s YouTube or YouTube Music!
Mmhmm

Crashes all the time on latest iphone

Crashes all the time on iPhone 11 pro usually after playing a song for 10-15 seconds. You are paying for a service that just does not work.

Why video on music app
by Kampli on 2020/08/07 03:38
Don’t understand this app as it’s plays video from YouTube .. it must be music only app
Awesome App

The best experience you will find with a paid Music App
Best for single people not families
by OutWestTraveler on 2020/08/06 23:18
What is the point in family play if you cannot play on multiple google devices the same time at the same IP address? We have one google home/mini in every room of the house, plus four TVs, four phones and two adults and fours kids. “Sorry you are using too many devices at one time, please stop using a device to play here” If I were single, and there was no home confinement’s, Google would have five stars. With a family, COVID and home confinement, Google is lucky to have three stars.
I hate it

I switched over to YouTube music from Spotify. I love the fact that you can add YouTube videos to playlists and listen to them as songs, which you can not do on Spotify. My only critique is that the radio stations and automatic playlists tend to combine a wide array of music, showcasing the variety of a genre, whereas Spotify mixes playlists based on the beats and tones of the song, which I still prefer.
Need to be able to lock my phone with free version
by emma ry on 2020/08/06 17:43
I love this app and I find really good music on there but the things is I don’t really like having to pay extra to be able to use other apps while listening to music. I would like if the app let us lock our phones while listening to music without having to buy the premium. A lot more people would use this app.
Really...
by Music.listen on 2020/08/06 17:02
So I honestly love this app but its biggest downfall is that it doesn’t let you turn of your phone and listen to music! It just youtube with less visuals your better of just whatching YouTube videos then paying money just to use a MUSIC app.
Best app

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....
Wayyyy too many repeats
by shame on turkey on 2019/05/15 02:31
When i first downloaded this app, i was getting ready to get rid of every other music app and subscription i have. Thankfully i didnt though. This is because the first day or two of having this app its completely amazing because of how much music you discover in so little time. Then came day three where this app started repeating things i thumbed up on the “my mixtape” selection. It only got worse from there. It’s almost been a week since ive gotten this app and now EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. is a repeat. This gets extremely frustrating, because i expect the “my mixtape” selection to help you discover new songs of the same type of music you like and have thumbed up. Now every single time i use this app all i do is skip through music and before i know it, i arrive at my destination, or i finish what i’m doing at the moment. The ONLY reason i gave this app 3 starts and not zero, is because this is the only app of its kind and there’s nothing really to compare it to. I am actually thinking of cancelling my membership and using some other music app that causes less frustration and stress in my life. IF YOU INTEND TO DISCOVER NEW MUSIC WITH THIS APP DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP, JUST KEEP SCROLLING DOWN.
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?
Love it!!!
by ColonelMcNasty68.5 on 2017/12/05 05:18
I really love this app because I can lock my phone n the music keeps playing. I also love the fact it adapts to me but I do wish it wouldn’t try to slip crap songs in on me that I don’t care for. I’m particular about my music but I love music nonetheless. The price is a little much for my liking because I am on a budget but you take the good with the bad. If I haven’t given it the thumbs up, don’t play it. 9 times outta 10 they miss with the song they suggest. I would give it 5 stars and not complain about the price if it was not for this hiccup in their design. Id really like to only pay 10 bucks a month for this app, but thems the breaks. All in all it’s a good app. Fine tune it, n I’ll praise this app from the rooftops. I already suggest it to all my friends but id go viral if they either A-come down on the price, of B- not try to slip me the BS songs. Other than that, good show ladies n gents. Thank you
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.
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.

by DudefuseTIB on 2020/07/07 18:53
Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user. Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music. another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.
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
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!
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.
Great Concept - Terrible Execution
by Minorly Disgruntled on 2019/10/08 14:29
I honestly had high hopes for this app, but in the end it was just a major let down. The music selection is great, but everything else about the app is there to make sure you can never actually listen to the music. Most songs will stop after 10-30 seconds and restarting the app won’t fix this problem. It will happen often, randomly, and unpredictably. Also, one you pause a song and leave the app it loses it’s memory. So let’s say your on a road trip and stopped to get gas, when you get back in the car you essentially have to restart the entire playlist you were just on. Individually these problems aren’t terrible, but combined it is the absolute worst. Which is really upsetting considering the content on here is actually amazing. Overall, only use this app if you’re at home and don’t mind consistently trouble shooting. Not an app for on the go people with busy lives.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
I really enjoyed this app. . . Up until recently. See, with the past few updates, it getting harder and harder to find the music I like. It recommends different versions of a song I like, but I don’t want different versions, I just want to listen to the song the way I like it. Be it faster tempo or otherwise. Also, first page I see when I enter the app now offers less of the things I’m interested in. While my favorite songs are cramped in a corner all together, a bunch of things I don’t care about take up the entire screen. I don’t want to listen to ‘New Releases’ or ‘Hottest Country Albums’ because that’s NOT WHAT I LIKE. The music I want is shoved in a corner under ‘your favorites’. SURE, those are TOTALLY my favorites and not just DIFFERENT THINGS ENTIRELY. I don’t even know what half of the stuff recommended to me are! I had high hopes for these few big updates, but all I see is failure to pander towards the audience. Please, staff. I know there is a low chance of someone reading this, especially since it’s a negative review. Please give me back the app that I loved! Instead of just calling random music you’ve thrown at me ‘personalized’, just go back to the way you were. This isn’t difficult. All you have to do is take away the new bad stuff, and replace it with the old good stuff. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
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
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
When I first downloaded the app I loved it because I could make my own playlists and it was always recommending me new music and artist and was always up to date when artist released new music, however I’ve had the app for a couple of years and I noticed that it started to say “song unavailable” and at first it was a couple of songs and I thought it got removed because some were songs I Hadn’t listened to in a while, however today I go on the app to listen to music and over half of my playlist with songs says song unavailable and when I tried to remove it and re- add the song it wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’m sad because I love this app, but I heard it happened to people with a premium account as well, so unfortunately I have to find another app to listen to music on in the meantime. Please fix this!
The revamp changes everything.
by Alex Lerman on 2018/05/25 04:00
This is a great app, has the absolute biggest library(YouTube), option for video and all of this is just the early access version! Very excited to see what the future updates bring with them. Few complaints are: Remove the swipe to delete from playlists, or make it harder to trigger, like requiring a double swipe. This was an issue in GPM, still an issue here. Also add shuffle and repeat buttons on the play screen and the ability to add whole albums to playlists. Other than that, keep up the good work and keep expanding the official library, as it’s missing big albums like Stoney by post Malone and 4 your eyes only by J Cole and so on.
Good app but bugs with last updates
by nopicnic on 2019/04/11 20:43
Hands down, this app has the most music. Nice to be able to listen to lesser known artists, covers, live performances, etc. Editing and sharing playlists on the app is really easy. One peeve of mine is that it has an option to download songs, but if you are out and have no cell service - you can’t open “library” to access “downloads” without needing internet - they should have an icon for “downloads” separate from “library” that opens right away without internet. Since the last update - it’s hit/miss with the app staying on. Before, you could lock your phone and the music would still play. Now it feels like you have to remember to trigger/wake the app to keep it on.
Giving it four stars will change if app changes this.
by Danku Coris Chi on 2019/03/09 02:10
I want the app to change the premium version I want the app to where I’m able to play it off the app it’s frustrating cause I wanna do other things and if I turn my phone off then woop the music turns off I don’t like it at all and u ask for a lot of money when using the premium since that I never bought it It would be fine if u could let us listen off the app that way we could do other things on our phones it’s fine if u add ads skip turns or something but u need to a least let us listen off the app that’s all and I will change this rating to a five star when that is fixed anyway I hope u get this and change it have a nice day...
Seems Legit
by i55rex on 2018/07/23 01:08
Been using YT Music for about a month now and I’m pleased 100% so far! The My Mixtape section is great; I’ve had it play several songs that I love but hadn’t listened to in a while (oh the nostalgia). There are only a few glitches like how the app responds sometimes but not anything irritating to me in the least (some slow response times that last half a second). I know they are still working some bugs and kinks out, but I’ve yet to have the app crash on me since I’ve been using it. It’s my #1 go-to when listening to music on my phone whether I’m at home or driving. Can’t wait to see what new additions we get in the future!
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
I often cast music from the App on my Sony TV. Whenever it is connected to the TV, overall App behavior becomes different, here are few examples: 1) When I play from my downloaded list, it does not follow the list itself. Depending on what song I select to play from the downloaded list, the queue becomes random with songs which is not in sync / order with my list 2) Moving a song up / down in the list also doesn’t work well, if I try to drag a song from one position to another, and I hold down for longer than 2-3 seconds, the drag auto releases, and scrolls back to where I originally started the drag from 3) Switching between Song / Video on the top bar is very slow, and sometimes reverses my choice, I have also seen a song being paused when attempting to switch to/from Song / Video Besides this or when just using the App without being connected to the TV, it works great, just wish the integration was smoother for my particular scenario Using iPhone 11 Pro and have auto-update on for Apps, and the TV is brand new Sony, so everything is relatively up to date on my side
Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
The app is okay. I transferred all my music over from google play and I expected a better experience which was met half way. While it has its benefits there are a lot of down sides. Some artist pages are literally missing albums. For example Steven universe which has some of season one album in its top song list but you can’t find the album anywhere on their page. I also have another album from Steven universe which also isn’t on the artist page and when you click -go to artist- it takes to to the same page where the album literally does not exist. Another problem I have is I get notifications of artists that I have not subscribed to. I can get notified of their new songs but not the ones that I am subscribed to.
No new songs, not worth the money for membership
by exe error 666 on 2020/06/14 19:41
No good song recommendations, all it does is play your like songs over and over, and then finally when you get a new song it usually not a good one some weird type of stuff that just isn’t worth the membership, and to top it off you shouldn’t need to pay to have music in the back ground I should be able to have my phone off without a membership, honestly if they did that it would probably bring in a lot more people so that’s an idea and if no one likes it to bad this is an honest review and this is only my opinion not anyone else’s but it’s not a good music app, unless you have money, and even then it’s challenging to find new and good songs, which is just a pure disappointment., edit: changed from 3 star to 1 star app is to frustrating, this is just ridiculous if I could would give a .5 star if possible
Fix the playlist shuffling
by Jehjdjdlskbmaskjsjs on 2019/07/11 08:43
I have a playlist that I workout to which has like 400 songs on it but every time I hit shuffle it plays the same songs every time I hit the shuffle button on the playlist so it’s not truly shuffling the songs and it gets pretty repetitive, fix the shuffling system to where it shuffles everything from my playlist so I’m not listening to the same songs every time I go to turn on the playlist. Like if I put a song on there today and there’s a song I put on there two years ago I want the same probability that it might land on a song I haven’t heard in a long time. The whole principle of shuffling is to be truly random and I don’t feel like I’m getting that.
Great app but room for improvement
by Timacon on 2018/04/03 03:05
I love music and listen to it most everywhere I am that I can and your music library far surpasses any I’ve seen! I wish there were a few improvements that I’ve also heard others mention and those are being able to remove a song from the music que without having to wait till it plays and wish there was a way to indicate some artists I can’t stand so they don’t sneak in amongst my jam! I also wish the app was visible on the lock screen when I’m connected to my system via WiFi the way it is when I’m connected via Bluetooth, why is there a difference on how it functions? A few tweaks by listening to your users and it would be the perfect music app!
Downloaded songs...?
by 5-6-7-8-Nyna on 2019/11/02 01:26
Ever since this update 2 days ago, my downloaded songs have disappeared. I can access the full albums I’ve downloaded, but the dozens and dozens of random songs I had downloaded that were in they’re own little “downloaded songs” album/playlist/whatever are gone. I can access my liked songs, but those are different, I didn’t thumbs up every song I downloaded and vice versus. I want my album/playlist of downloaded songs back! Sometimes I want a mix of stuff, besides the offline playlist of 20 songs that the app has put together for me. I love this app. the $ I pay for the amount of music I can access and download is awesome...but I want to be able to download everything I’ve downloaded again! Please!
So much buffering
by Littlezeekers on 2019/05/18 16:45
I mostly listen to music while I’m working in the morning, I like to use the app because it does help discover music I would potentially like. My main issue with the app is every time I take out an AirPod to interact with another person it pauses my music and almost never picks back up. It try’s to buffer back where I was but I usually have to start the song over or just skip it. It’s rather annoying especially when it’s a podcast or a longer music playlist. Just seems like a big flaw that it can’t pick up where I left off, especially when I usually put my AirPod back in within a minute or two of taking it out. The only other issue is it plays a lot of repeat songs, mostly they’re songs that I’ve liked but I don’t discover new music by listening to the same stuff..
In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho.
by PORN STAR SWEETS on 2020/03/18 23:42
I absolutely LOVE this! No ads, Thank yoooou! Having everything at your finger tips and also it gives amazing finds and even ones you forgot about & hen will show you whole entire playlist. You want baby making music or old school rock ballads then you’re all set for hours with a playlist made, Or make your own! I have tons of playlists already. Plus you subscribed to the artist. ONLY thing I don’t like is the price. But it’s really not a lot when you think about how much time you save and being able to take with you on your cell with unlimited space!!
Issue
by ~I_Don't_Know~ on 2020/05/11 16:48
Okay, Idk how long I’ve used this app but I have for a little bit, and the only two issues are that, when I’m trying to add music to a new playlist sometimes I would make the playlist before hand, knowing I needed to add music to it. But I usually need to make a new one when I click add to playlist, because the one made before doesn’t show up on my list of playlists. Honestly it’s not that big of a deal but today I was trying to add music to a playlist but the playlist didn’t show up at all, no matter how many times I made it before I chose the song or when I made a new playlist after I chose the song and clicked add to playlist. Those are really the two main things but the first ones not that big of a deal.
Fix this
by Luke¡ on 2019/06/15 04:48
I love this app I have been using it for over a year now as my main music streaming app. It has been flawless in my mind ever since they made the update to download playlists offline. That is, until recently. Recently, about every fifth song that plays, wether it be from one of my playlists or a search, doesn’t load. This is extremely frustrating when I have to skip all of these songs which will never load and just skip constantly. It turns a 100 song playlist into only 30 minutes of actual music streaming. Please fix this bug it has ruined the app for me and stops me from listening to a select portion of all of my playlists.
I really want to love this app, but...
by Sire2K on 2020/06/19 17:10
I really want to love this app, but the bugs it contains drive me crazy enough not to make the switch from Google Play Music (which isn't without it's flaws, such as selecting genres in the new releases) which offers a better UX. One problem that shouldn't go without being mentioned is the fact that after ending an incoming call that caused the music to pause the music won't resume; in fact, it won't even allow the user to continue where s/he left off. Instead, the user will have to find the playlist/album again and remember what track was playing to resume. I hope this review doesn't fall on deaf ears (yes Google Devs, I'm speaking to you), as I fear that this might just be another of those projects that Google eventually drops instead of fixing.
Buggier than Play Music
by CO_Ryan on 2020/07/31 17:11
Play Music wasn't perfect, but it was better than this. If your commute takes you through extended periods with no data coverage, expect to be disappointed even with a fully downloaded play list. The queue gets mixed up and paired down. Songs will show up in the queue twice, back to back. You may even have to add the downloaded playlist back into the queue because every time the app moves to the next song, there's an error and the music pauses. Selecting to play the same exact play list while offline fixes the errors, but what is going on that prevents this app from being able to play a downloaded playlist continuously regardless of network availability. Strongly considering dumping all my Google paid services at this point. I'm pretty much over it. Will give this a bit more time, but my confidence is low.
It's getting worse
by Angry girlszzzzzzzzzz on 2018/06/15 15:28
They are slowly making this app worse. First they took away the slider that added or took away variety and now it seems like they are just trying to shove new music down my throat. I DONT WANT TO LISTEN TO THOSE SONGS. I also really enjoyed the "rediscover music you loved" tab because it was cool to see what I had listened to a year ago but in the new update they took that out for some reason. Also I used to be able to see other versions of songs and songs that were similar to that song by going into more info about it but they took that out too. That feature was pretty much the reason why I kept this app even after they got rid of other features. This app gets more boring, simple, and frustrating with every update. They should have just kept it the way it was when they first put it out. It was better that way.
It okay.
by KJ01 12 on 2020/07/12 15:54
I like the app and been using it to see if any of my favorite artist have new albums or songs I can listen to. Despite all the ads the app itself is good. One problem I have and can’t get over is the recommendation or personalized playlist it’s just not me nothing I would listen to. Even when I check for recent updates still nothing. A helpful tip for you guys. Would be to study the person music what they listen to and compare different songs to see what gives them the satisfaction of what there listening to not random things. Please take the time to consider this advice it would be helpful for my experience and others. Thank you☺️👍
Could have been better..
by Amend90 on 2020/03/09 19:27
Overall the first week of having this app was amazing the best music experience I will have in a long time. Now I use it and I have to pat for it to be in my pocket turned off. I can’t even open other apps without having it cost a paywall from this app. I get it that you would need more cash as the app is free and that’s good but when you have an advertisement every before and after a song is it really necessary? Know I sound like a major Karen but I’m trying to be honest won’t get the fun I had listening to music again.. The reason I’m giving it three stars is because I don’t have that much passion for this app although I enjoyed the time I had with it even if I can’t get it anymore..
Much improved; still needs more work.
by TaoGroves on 2019/10/21 02:50
This app has improved vastly since its introduction a few years ago, and is now one of the top music streaming platforms in my opinion. First, Google’s algorithms deliver the best mix of what I like along with new suggestions. Secondly, I appreciate the ability to seamlessly switch between music and videos in the app. Lastly, the offline mixtape is an extremely useful feature. Always having 100 fresh songs in my back pocket for those no service areas is a lifesaver. The app is still a bit clunky (especially the library) but I like it a lot.
Needs improvements
by herom99 on 2019/09/14 14:15
I would like to use this app 100% of the time instead of Google Play Music, however, there are certain things I don’t like. 1) when using my AirPods, I can double tap to pause, but when I double tap to resume—it doesn’t work! I need to go directly into the app and hit play. Hitting play on the lock screen won’t work, either, as it just keeps spinning. It forces me to go directly into the app and start the song from the beginning. 2) it’s cool that you can get both audio and videos on the same app. But it’s weird when the app plays the audio of the video version. You could be listening to a song (video) with long pauses that only make sense when you’re watching a video.
Great app! Just Missing a Few Things...
by Pretty Hot Thang on 2020/07/11 15:42
I love this music app and have canceled all my other music subscriptions. The variety is great and it is super easy to use. The only thing I wish is 1) there was a Watch app (I mean, c’mon guys! This should be a no brainer!!! I use this app when I’m exercising and it’s a hassle to have to use your phone to control your music. Abs 2) I wish there was a button to turn off explicit music. I teach a spin class and I’m always nervous about the songs that come on auto play when my playlist ends because they all have cussing in them. Plus, I definitely can play this music around my kids! It should be easier to listen to clean music.
The old Bait and Switch...
by SBR Shooter on 2019/11/07 19:20
Starting out, they give you the premium version for 2 weeks, so you can enjoy listening to music while using other apps and also when your phone screen goes to sleep. Once that trial period ends and you are using the free version of the app, you get 15+minute long advertisements and the music stops every 3 songs to ask if you are still listening and forces you to hit the “yes” button. The premium version of this app is great, but making the free version so terrible that it is unusable is a marketing game that I’m just not going to play. This app is worthless to me if I have to constantly interact with it to keep the music playing for more than 10 minutes at a time. And the fact is, that it’s all just a thinly veiled attempt to get you addicted to the convenience of the premium version.
App Needs EQ for Better Bluetooth Playback
by Chef on Chefs Feed on 2020/04/17 13:24
Love the app! With certain Bluetooth headphones or using on systems like Sonos (especially with volume limit off) certain hertz to megahertz can either distort music quality or cause trouble with devices trying to understand if music is in mono or stereo. Having an EQ can fix the problem or even having a stereo or mono function would be great. This happens more when viewing videos or music either recorded live or DJ sets type recordings. Most people that upload music use a Y jack that if they don’t select stereo or mono prior to recording, makes the problem worse.
The app has a horrible radio
by Budrocket on 2019/04/12 19:41
This app does music well if you know what bands you like, but the radio feature is bad. If you pick a song or artist to start a radio with then the songs that come up tend to be repeats. Let me explain, if you pick Linkin Park to start a radio with, it will play the exact same songs as an Avenged Sevenfold radio. The app does not offer a wide range of random radio songs to listen to. Pandora does an amazing job at radio as it throws new music that you've never heard of in your playlist. I wish this app did that. If you play Kendrick Lamar then the radio is the same as an Eminem radio song list. The artists are in the same broad music genre sure but their music styles are completely different.
Not as good as google play
by michk72 on 2020/08/10 00:18
It seems there are ten extra steps to get anywhere. No index on your lists, so you’re scrolling forever; they recently changed how they display stuff by artists (now all songs are in one long list, and if the album you want to listen to isn’t on the top of their list, you have to take an extra step to get to the album listing. I have a lot of international artists and sometimes it’s easier to find what I want to listen to by album cover); playlists don’t automatically start over (there’s an auto play, but it doesn’t start the playlist over, it just plays random stuff YM thinks you might like, sometimes stuff I don’t even have in my library). Am one more terrible discovery away from switching music services.
Long time google play user
by bstell33 on 2020/07/20 16:25
Just started using this because google play recommend i transfer my library. After discovering that google plans on shutting down google play music I made the switch. I am so pleased by this switch. The layout is so much more organized and easy to navigate. I am getting better recommendations and the addition of viewing music videos is awesome. I’m excited to keep using it. One thing I’d love for them to add/ improve on is their music sharing options. Adding the ability to add songs to your Instagram story or other social media would be sweet.
My Two Cents
by Dub-G12 on 2019/10/15 23:37
I really enjoy this app. I like how it’s how easy it is to search for different artists and music. I also enjoy the fact of not having to deal with ads or that I can close the screen on my phone without the song stopping. I do wish that the “Your Playlist” would update with newer songs related to the music I listen to on average. It’s usually the same songs over and over. I also don’t like that it will completely change after listening to one type of song. For example, I mostly listen to Rap/Hip Hop but as soon as I play one Disney song for my kids the whole playlist gets flooded with Disney songs.
WOWed! If you like to hear music from your genre, come here!
by wiseleader on 2019/07/25 03:35
I’m not kidding about how I said in the subject of this comment! This is my favorite app for hearing music. If you can pick specific artists that make good music, it doesn’t matter whatever type of genre you want to listen to. This is my first type of app that does know how to suggest very similar music to your current song and video of your choice. I have just finished my main point of this app and it works well and worth the 5stars BUT I don’t think it that good because the premium version is too much money so it’s worth the 4 stars if you like this app. If this gets a lower price it’s a 5!
Good aside from recent updates
by Grooveshark on 2018/08/19 22:03
Good app overall but has many issues. The app used to have a lot of variety in the music and showed a lot of artists I haven’t heard of before. Now the app recommends the same 5 songs every time I open the app. Every time I open a radio off of a specific artist (I listen to a lot of hip-hop and rap) I hear the one song and then playlist of “popular” music. It’s the same line up of songs every time. Frustrating that the slider bar for variety has been taken away, that was a major reason for switching from other streaming services. Being able to change variety allows me to stream music longer, not getting as frustrated that I hear the same songs again and again. The music that comes preloaded into playlists plays the same songs over and over and over again with no way to remove them. Even if I dislike the song, it will still play over and over and over and over and over. See how annoying it is when it does it over and over again? Yeah. Aside from these MAJOR issues, not a bad music streaming app.
About the new version
by greenFuneral on 2018/06/28 16:11
So previously I was able to see just songs I’ve listened to recently so I could just refresh and choose from things I know. I use this app explicitly for working out and so I don’t want to be listening to stations and random songs I’m not familiar with. The new update enforces this and I absolutely hate it. I had to start liking the songs I know I would be wanting to listen to, and it takes me probably twice as much time to find something than before. I don’t even scroll down on the main page anymore because it’s full of unwanted suggestions. It’s absolutely garbage and I want the old layout back without all those random suggestions I couldn’t care less about. It was a fantastic app, why did you have to ruin it?
App Devs making it worse with each update
by Kimsters on 2017/12/31 02:27
I feel like every time it receives a new update, this app just gets worse. For example, they recently got rid of or moved the customization option where you could change what kind of music you were listening to to either make it more diverse or exclusive. But now it's gone and I keep getting songs I've never even heard of which I really dislike. Also, was changing the logo to make it dark really necessary? I liked the white colored logo. And please give us the option to actually choose songs to put into our playlist without liking them because whenever I do like them, they always appear. I just want a nice balance for once...
Fix the minimizer
by Potatoman31 on 2020/02/09 03:40
I have had this app for a couple of years now and I think it is really great. I like being able to listen to music that I like when working on homework. Lately though I have been having some problems with the drop down menu to adjust what song I want to listen to next. It will either not let me move the song up or instead after dropping down the menu to pick what song I want to listen to next, it will just minimize the whole screen and take me back to the main screen. I will still be able to listen to the song that I just picked but I won’t be able to change what’s next. Overall a great app, but would like that bug fixed.

Annoying
by ddcxZbevb am hvvz on 2020/08/13 17:57
For some reason all this Billie eyelish stuff is in my recommended and a lot of other random songs I’ve never listened to I haven’t even listened to the artist or anything like it. Why is this happening?
Displays album artwork w/ the respect it deserves—yet penalizes exploration
by ByteBooty on 2020/08/13 17:09
Google Play UI is hideous in comparison, especially when it crops the album artwork and horrid orange in far too many elements. I had my gripes switching over at first but am glad I did overall. It’s as if I’ve gotten used to having a giant thorn in my eye for years and some brilliant design team at google removed it. 🙏 BUT there are still serious concerns over finding new music. I used to be able to see “recommended new releases” with +20 albums at my fingertips. Now I’m forced to go through one song at a time like a dopamine addled tik tok addict. C’mon! I don’t want 20 of your playlists which only pick from popular artists, I want to explore and see what exists. I feel suffocated by algos picking things for me I don’t want. I’ve given them a fair chance and their recommendations are still terrible. This app is too close to tik tok and refuses to embrace the incredible potential of having everything and anything available to you at once. The infinite queue function isn’t bad, but overall penalizes exploration. Massive downgrade in my opinion. Makes me want to switch to Spotify or Apple Music really bad. YT has until the end of the year or I’m switching and never looking back.
Stop deleting the bad reviews!
by v8dreaming on 2020/08/13 15:22
Should have left Google Play Music alone. More expensive than GPM. Extremely limited playlists with sponsored, unrelated artists inserted. Playlists are redundant due to lack of artists. Seems to only want to play the most popular artists. Forced to pay for app to work in background. Forced to create a YouTube channel to transfer GPM. App layout is horrible. Not user friendly. I’ve compared GPM to YTM and keep going back to GPM. When I can no longer use GPM, I will be looking elsewhere, or possibly just no longer use a streaming service at all. YTM is garbage.
Bring Google Play Music back.
by @Michael_Barnes on 2020/08/13 15:02
This app is horrible. Randomly stops playing and loses all context of the playlist I was just on. Pausing a song for some period of time and I have to open the app again to get it to play. Google Play Music app was so much better. This is disappointing.
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.
OK app
by platypuslover111 on 2020/08/13 12:24
So I got this app to listen to music while using other apps. It worked for a month then said I had to pay to be able to use it off the app.I’m very annoyed I don’t want to pay to listening to music.
Google home fix

by Amy of the night on 2020/08/13 12:16
I want to listen to the music WITHOUT running my battery down but now I can’t!!!🤬IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER BEFORE THE UPDATE!! You see I get emotional about music and IT CAME TO THE POINT THAT I STARTED TO CRY AND DELETED IT AND I WILL NEVER DOWNLOAD THIS TRASHY APP EVER AGAIN!!🤬🤬
No music in backround
by 😎😏😡😦 on 2020/08/13 06:16
Theirs realistically no point to the app, you can’t even listen to music in the background while using other apps. At this point might as well still use Spotify or SoundCloud, with less ads and the ability to listen in the background
Pretty great application!!!
by Whicholalo on 2020/08/13 04:34
This is such a pretty great application for those who like to hear music of any genre at any age!!!

I wish that it would let me close out of the app and still listen to music like when I’m falling asleep I don’t want my screen time to go up. Just a little advice to make the app a little bit better rather than charging you for it

Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
The app is okay. I transferred all my music over from google play and I expected a better experience which was met half way. While it has its benefits there are a lot of down sides. Some artist pages are literally missing albums. For example Steven universe which has some of season one album in its top song list but you can’t find the album anywhere on their page. I also have another album from Steven universe which also isn’t on the artist page and when you click -go to artist- it takes to to the same page where the album literally does not exist. Another problem I have is I get notifications of artists that I have not subscribed to. I can get notified of their new songs but not the ones that I am subscribed to.

Better than Spotify

Very solid streaming platform of course based on YouTube I recommend it for get all that music that is hard to found in another apps like Spotify,Deezer etc.

They Took My Money
by PedoRacistoDementioCheeto on 2020/08/11 18:30
I checked out this app since my family was using it. I wanted to give it a try but after seeing the prices on the memberships I kinda backtracked and deleted the app. I was fine with soundcloud anyways. A day or two later I find out that $15 in my account had been taken from Youtube Music. It’s so outrageous that they didn’t notify you of an auto-renew after downloading the app. Hell, they shouldn’t even HAVE the auto-renew to begin with! It’s a horrible feature. And I don’t get how it works even after I’ve deleted the app. tldr; deleted Youtube Music, it auto-renewed my money even tho i deleted the app, wasted 15 bucks. Not happy at all.

I was one of those that switched over to Google Music when it first came out and have enjoyed using it since. Now with this forced move to YTM and the lousy interface I am going back to iTunes. All I am looking for is a good interface to play my music and this just doesn't do it for me.

Albums view within Artist?
by ZaWheelZ on 2020/08/11 14:48
When inside the Artist section, its just a long list of songs. Really need to be able to view each album. Until then, this is unusable
“Downloads” function is limiting and confusing. Disappointing.

TL;DR: New layout is wonderful, but offline features/“Downloads” function is awful. I love the new layout—back in 2015, 2016, whatever, it came down to a choice between YT music and Google Play. Due to the interface, Google Play won easily. I understand the decision to combine the two, and I like the way they're slowly easing you into moving over. Despite all of this, the way YT music is set up is still jarring. Don’t get me wrong—it’s beautiful, I like the black background Google Play never had, and the auto play feature is wonderful, but the way the “downloads” feature works on this app is atrocious! It makes no sense that I can access and sort by Playlists, Songs, Artists, Albums, etc **only** on wifi. Why is it that this feature is stripped away when I don’t have an internet connection? Without a connection, I am **forced** to **exclusively** use the Downloads section of the app. In the Downloads section, Every Single Thing I’ve downloaded (albums, playlists, singles) is sorted into a mass of chaos only distinguished by alphabetical order... which is really hard to understand, as Google Play did not have this issue...? This makes it very hard to navigate, further backed by the fact that there isn’t even a way to quickly jump to a certain letter of the alphabet? Just guess and check, or scroll all day if you want to reach “Z” I suppose... This is nit picking, but why when I download a song/album is it not automatically added to my library? Kind of ridiculous that I’d want to listen to something offline, but not want it to be in my library... the reverse is easier to understand, but the reverse is not the problem. It seems that they refined the app to have a much better layout, but left out all the best features of the one they’re trying to get rid of. Disappointing.

I’m done with Google. Without a pixel watch and no music app your phones are no good to me. Apple offers everything I need.
What is the point of a music app if you can’t run it in the background?
by dinodylan1 on 2020/08/11 05:36
The most basic feature is playing music in the background, but if you want to do that you must pay the subscription, so there goes using it in the car. Ads after and before every song, some can be skipped after 5 seconds so you’ll be pulling out your phone every 2-3 minutes. It really seems like a cash grab.

It is good,but....
by abcdefghijklmnopqrs...tu.v.. on 2020/08/11 01:51
It is good, but I downloaded this app so I could listen to music while using another app or switching off my device, but now whenever I close the app the music stops and I’d asks me to pay. Very disappointed.
Random playlist appearing in mine??
by Josh is sexe on 2020/08/10 23:25
Why is there different self made playlists in my playlists when I didn’t put them there
Too difficult to use
by Yslabonita on 2020/08/10 21:00
The fact that I have to scroll and scroll to find a song I want to play from my library (because there’s no quick find on the side) is so frustrating.
Good but i was disappointed
by delia moore on 2020/08/10 18:11
When i got the app i could turn off my phone and it play but now a have to pay to do that
Dims Album art when Casting and no Album art swipe
by rlo123 on 2020/08/10 17:40
When you are casting, the album art is dimmed, layered behind the controls. The controls would not be necessary, but they down graded from Google Play Music when they left off the ability to swipe left/right on album art to skip forwards and backwards one song. Back to Google Play Music for me. If this isn’t fixed by the time Google Play is retired, I will be moving back to Spotify for sure.
Slow but steady improvement
by markbyrn on 2020/08/10 12:15
The YouTube music app has made slow improvements over time but still falls short of other music apps for ease of use. As with the YouTube app itself, the Home and Explore menus are fairly useless to me. Focus on showing me recommendations based on what I listen not what you want me to listen to. The artist subscription option is nice but there should be a dedicated unsubscribe option instead. A big plus is having the premium service.
Perfect !!!!!

by dudfits222 on 2020/08/10 09:46
i was looking for an app that played you tube music videos this app only plays music without videos it is youtube after all a video service if you are just going to play just music and no videos add it to the app name. if i wanted an app to just play music i would download pandora or the like.
Best Music App out
by Raycean on 2020/08/10 07:49
This is the best music app from user experience to the functions. If only yourube would pay artist more per stream then it would take over.
Great platform
by Ethan Caspillo on 2020/08/10 07:01
I’ve been with YouTube music since before it was a thing. I had google music for the longest time and then eventually got YouTube music when google bought them out. This app gives me great song recommendations and so many underground songs and leaks that both Spotify and Apple Music don’t have. Only issue is that I wish the app would outreach more and involve themselves in creating a YouTube music app for the Apple Watch and for the Mac, and also tiny details like being able to make custom art covers for playlists like how Apple Music allows you to do but besides that the app is amazing, and if they integrated the suggested it would be near to perfect.
All the tools you need
by Sinknthink on 2020/08/10 04:45
I will no longer use pandora. I love the way you can do more than one kind of list. You can pick an artist and either listen to the whole album or a radio station through them.You can download whatever song you’re listening to and it goes into an off-line library. You can like one and it will go into another Library for a online mix with your favorite songs. You can pick dislike for a song and it won’t play the song anymore. You can look up almost anybody that has an album or single and Youtube will have them on file. Thank you YouTube for this lovely musical set up.
great app!

Inferior to play music
by Mark Cuckerberg on 2020/08/10 00:32
Not sure why google is doing this. Inferior to google play in every way. This app does everything worse. It clutters up your YouTube history, and searching for music is a mess. Literally no one asked for this.
Not as good as google play
by michk72 on 2020/08/10 00:18
It seems there are ten extra steps to get anywhere. No index on your lists, so you’re scrolling forever; they recently changed how they display stuff by artists (now all songs are in one long list, and if the album you want to listen to isn’t on the top of their list, you have to take an extra step to get to the album listing. I have a lot of international artists and sometimes it’s easier to find what I want to listen to by album cover); playlists don’t automatically start over (there’s an auto play, but it doesn’t start the playlist over, it just plays random stuff YM thinks you might like, sometimes stuff I don’t even have in my library). Am one more terrible discovery away from switching music services.
Where is the Recently Added playlist?
by ORMomma on 2020/08/10 00:17
I’m reluctantly switching to this app because you’re getting rid of Google Play, which I have paid for and enjoyed for years, and already I notice my most-used feature is gone! Please consider adding “Recently Added” to your auto playlists. I use this playlist most often because it’s where I can find all the albums I’ve recently added to my library, and I can listen to them on shuffle. Please, please, PLEASE add this auto playlist to YT Music and I’ll be happier with this app. Thanks.
I really like it
by MiraculousFan01 on 2020/08/09 22:58
It’s actually really good! The reviews don’t do it justice. The layout is wonky but other that that I find it pretty nice and easy to use!

USELESS without youtube red/premium
by dat_Rasta on 2020/08/09 18:18
If you’ve got youtube red or whatever they feel like calling it nowadays, its actually just as dope as any other music service except you can stream yt videos ppl have uploaded like slowed and reverbed songs so thats pretty lovely actually
Holding my own music hostage
by Matt-05 on 2020/08/09 17:55
I own my own music, and you’re not letting me cast it without paying a subscription? I bought google speakers and cast devices under the premise that I could cast my music with the google play music app. This is absolutely absurd.
Google Play Music originator
by hamlife on 2020/08/09 16:49
It took a while to get use to. Definitely user error on my part I couldn’t figure out how to transfer my google play music. Make sure you go to settings and it has google music transfer option. I still really like the google play music app better but since this is going to be my only option I keep using it to get use to it.
WAS my favorite app :/
by nsjeuegdh on 2020/08/09 15:03
So,when I first downloaded it,I loved it cuz it was hands free,didn’t have to keep my phone on or change the song every time it ended and I got to make my own playlists then they made a update and it’s really annoying because when I want the simple pleasure of listening to music I have to make sure I don’t accidentally change the song so I have to hold it instead of just putting it in my pocket and letting it do what it do, so if they can just PLEASE make off screen a normal non having to buy premium to get regular music thing that would be great but other than that it’s ok.

Bring back Play Music
by IgorKolker on 2020/08/08 23:16
As a replacement for Play Music it’s total junk. A huge step backwards in functionality. Couldn’t the brains at Google figure out how to rebrand the music service without dropping all the features already developed and tested?

Absolute junk compared to Google Play Music. I have no interest in the subscription but have to jump through all those hoops to get to my own music. Interface also pales in comparison.

Great, but keep music up if the app closes
by Lollipops are blue64 on 2020/08/08 18:13
I love Youtube Music! The format is great, it is sleek, and I love the automated mixes. However, the one thing that gets me is if I close the app, whatever playlist or radio I had playing is gone. This is especially annoying if I have a radio or have curated the queue, something that cannot be easily gotten back.
Nah
by Alex Roeske on 2020/08/08 17:35
Literally the worst shuffle I’ve ever used, i have 650 songs on my playlist and it plays the same 10 when I hit shuffle, and after it’s done playing the 10 songs it just stops entirely and I can’t play another song without shuffling it again oh but wait, I can’t shuffle it again OR ILL HEAR THE SAME SONGS
ITS BETTER THAN, APPLE MUSIC
by James Doughboy Carter on 2020/08/08 16:18
Apple music gives you unlimited music but they also remove at anytime they please thats why i hated it plus when you dont PAY your monthly pay they LOCK THE WHOLE APP. But YOUTUBE MUSIC is so much better because they let you keep everything paid or not. I love that plus NO COMMERCIALS

Missing to many features
by Falcon1620 on 2020/08/08 07:51
Library origination is a disaster, recommendations is not as good at GPM and quality on music is not great. Overall it’s not bad but it’s a confusing mess. Steaming and apps work on some devices but not others. Your suppose to use the music tab on the YouTube app for some streaming boxes but some offer YTmusic and my speaker does not like cooperating either. I could research and fix some of these things but I’m moving to another service. Not worth it. It has potential but it has a really advanced since I tried it out last time and gave up on it. Overall just frustrated with Google’s lack of sticking with something and making improvements on it.
OK, but needs improvement.
by markisbeast1181 on 2020/08/08 01:10
It’s ok, but if Google wants me to stop using Play Music, then there’s a few things that need to be fixed. It takes way too many steps to get to my playlists compared to Play music, which has playlists front and center. When watching videos full screen, it is impossible to scrub through since the iOS gestures get triggered every time. If these issues are fixed, it would be excellent.
Good
by calvaria824 on 2020/08/07 23:04

Some features I would really like
by transfering from google play on 2020/08/07 22:23
I want a thing that warns you when you are duplicating songs on your playlists. I also want a visual indication so I can easily see what song I’m listening too and where it is on an album or playlist. Finally I would like the recent activity to be device only. The reason I want this is my family shares an account and my recently played is getting full of songs and albums I don’t want to listen to or care about.

by emilycheergirl on 2020/08/07 18:23
So this is a really good app bet the thing is that you can’t go off the app and the music will still be playing be if you do like that then I would say download Spotify
Great app, the pause and play function doesn't even work correctly.
by goobermensch on 2020/08/07 18:13
I like the app, but it's completely unusable in its current state. When you pause a track then try to play it again, half the time it will not play until you manually skip back 10 seconds in the song 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Horrendous app
by Redvette77 on 2020/08/07 18:05

Google is just money hungry!
by Lady Amethys on 2020/08/07 17:23
I would actually rate this app as a 5 star rating, but there is one major flaw to the app! In the free version you can’t listen to music while doing something else on your device. I just use Spotify when I want to listen to music while doing other operations on my iPad or phone. In a time where people are on fixed budgets, and there is a struggling economy Google wants to charge you a fee to listen to music in the background. Why pay a fee when there are so many other apps that let you listen to music in the background. I mean with as much money as Google brings in from adds and other paid services you would think Google could afford to let you listen to your music your way! So really Google is just greedy! I am writing this review while Jamming out to Everlast’s album Songs of the Ungrateful Dead on Spotify something you could never do on Google’s YouTube or YouTube Music!

by OutWestTraveler on 2020/08/06 23:18
What is the point in family play if you cannot play on multiple google devices the same time at the same IP address? We have one google home/mini in every room of the house, plus four TVs, four phones and two adults and fours kids. “Sorry you are using too many devices at one time, please stop using a device to play here” If I were single, and there was no home confinement’s, Google would have five stars. With a family, COVID and home confinement, Google is lucky to have three stars.

I switched over to YouTube music from Spotify. I love the fact that you can add YouTube videos to playlists and listen to them as songs, which you can not do on Spotify. My only critique is that the radio stations and automatic playlists tend to combine a wide array of music, showcasing the variety of a genre, whereas Spotify mixes playlists based on the beats and tones of the song, which I still prefer.
Need to be able to lock my phone with free version
by emma ry on 2020/08/06 17:43
I love this app and I find really good music on there but the things is I don’t really like having to pay extra to be able to use other apps while listening to music. I would like if the app let us lock our phones while listening to music without having to buy the premium. A lot more people would use this app.
Really...
by Music.listen on 2020/08/06 17:02
So I honestly love this app but its biggest downfall is that it doesn’t let you turn of your phone and listen to music! It just youtube with less visuals your better of just whatching YouTube videos then paying money just to use a MUSIC app.

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....
Wayyyy too many repeats
by shame on turkey on 2019/05/15 02:31
When i first downloaded this app, i was getting ready to get rid of every other music app and subscription i have. Thankfully i didnt though. This is because the first day or two of having this app its completely amazing because of how much music you discover in so little time. Then came day three where this app started repeating things i thumbed up on the “my mixtape” selection. It only got worse from there. It’s almost been a week since ive gotten this app and now EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. is a repeat. This gets extremely frustrating, because i expect the “my mixtape” selection to help you discover new songs of the same type of music you like and have thumbed up. Now every single time i use this app all i do is skip through music and before i know it, i arrive at my destination, or i finish what i’m doing at the moment. The ONLY reason i gave this app 3 starts and not zero, is because this is the only app of its kind and there’s nothing really to compare it to. I am actually thinking of cancelling my membership and using some other music app that causes less frustration and stress in my life. IF YOU INTEND TO DISCOVER NEW MUSIC WITH THIS APP DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP, JUST KEEP SCROLLING DOWN.
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?
Love it!!!
by ColonelMcNasty68.5 on 2017/12/05 05:18
I really love this app because I can lock my phone n the music keeps playing. I also love the fact it adapts to me but I do wish it wouldn’t try to slip crap songs in on me that I don’t care for. I’m particular about my music but I love music nonetheless. The price is a little much for my liking because I am on a budget but you take the good with the bad. If I haven’t given it the thumbs up, don’t play it. 9 times outta 10 they miss with the song they suggest. I would give it 5 stars and not complain about the price if it was not for this hiccup in their design. Id really like to only pay 10 bucks a month for this app, but thems the breaks. All in all it’s a good app. Fine tune it, n I’ll praise this app from the rooftops. I already suggest it to all my friends but id go viral if they either A-come down on the price, of B- not try to slip me the BS songs. Other than that, good show ladies n gents. Thank you
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.
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.

Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user. Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music. another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.
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
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!
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.
Great Concept - Terrible Execution
by Minorly Disgruntled on 2019/10/08 14:29
I honestly had high hopes for this app, but in the end it was just a major let down. The music selection is great, but everything else about the app is there to make sure you can never actually listen to the music. Most songs will stop after 10-30 seconds and restarting the app won’t fix this problem. It will happen often, randomly, and unpredictably. Also, one you pause a song and leave the app it loses it’s memory. So let’s say your on a road trip and stopped to get gas, when you get back in the car you essentially have to restart the entire playlist you were just on. Individually these problems aren’t terrible, but combined it is the absolute worst. Which is really upsetting considering the content on here is actually amazing. Overall, only use this app if you’re at home and don’t mind consistently trouble shooting. Not an app for on the go people with busy lives.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
I really enjoyed this app. . . Up until recently. See, with the past few updates, it getting harder and harder to find the music I like. It recommends different versions of a song I like, but I don’t want different versions, I just want to listen to the song the way I like it. Be it faster tempo or otherwise. Also, first page I see when I enter the app now offers less of the things I’m interested in. While my favorite songs are cramped in a corner all together, a bunch of things I don’t care about take up the entire screen. I don’t want to listen to ‘New Releases’ or ‘Hottest Country Albums’ because that’s NOT WHAT I LIKE. The music I want is shoved in a corner under ‘your favorites’. SURE, those are TOTALLY my favorites and not just DIFFERENT THINGS ENTIRELY. I don’t even know what half of the stuff recommended to me are! I had high hopes for these few big updates, but all I see is failure to pander towards the audience. Please, staff. I know there is a low chance of someone reading this, especially since it’s a negative review. Please give me back the app that I loved! Instead of just calling random music you’ve thrown at me ‘personalized’, just go back to the way you were. This isn’t difficult. All you have to do is take away the new bad stuff, and replace it with the old good stuff. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
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
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
When I first downloaded the app I loved it because I could make my own playlists and it was always recommending me new music and artist and was always up to date when artist released new music, however I’ve had the app for a couple of years and I noticed that it started to say “song unavailable” and at first it was a couple of songs and I thought it got removed because some were songs I Hadn’t listened to in a while, however today I go on the app to listen to music and over half of my playlist with songs says song unavailable and when I tried to remove it and re- add the song it wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’m sad because I love this app, but I heard it happened to people with a premium account as well, so unfortunately I have to find another app to listen to music on in the meantime. Please fix this!
The revamp changes everything.
by Alex Lerman on 2018/05/25 04:00
This is a great app, has the absolute biggest library(YouTube), option for video and all of this is just the early access version! Very excited to see what the future updates bring with them. Few complaints are: Remove the swipe to delete from playlists, or make it harder to trigger, like requiring a double swipe. This was an issue in GPM, still an issue here. Also add shuffle and repeat buttons on the play screen and the ability to add whole albums to playlists. Other than that, keep up the good work and keep expanding the official library, as it’s missing big albums like Stoney by post Malone and 4 your eyes only by J Cole and so on.
Good app but bugs with last updates
by nopicnic on 2019/04/11 20:43
Hands down, this app has the most music. Nice to be able to listen to lesser known artists, covers, live performances, etc. Editing and sharing playlists on the app is really easy. One peeve of mine is that it has an option to download songs, but if you are out and have no cell service - you can’t open “library” to access “downloads” without needing internet - they should have an icon for “downloads” separate from “library” that opens right away without internet. Since the last update - it’s hit/miss with the app staying on. Before, you could lock your phone and the music would still play. Now it feels like you have to remember to trigger/wake the app to keep it on.
Giving it four stars will change if app changes this.
by Danku Coris Chi on 2019/03/09 02:10
I want the app to change the premium version I want the app to where I’m able to play it off the app it’s frustrating cause I wanna do other things and if I turn my phone off then woop the music turns off I don’t like it at all and u ask for a lot of money when using the premium since that I never bought it It would be fine if u could let us listen off the app that way we could do other things on our phones it’s fine if u add ads skip turns or something but u need to a least let us listen off the app that’s all and I will change this rating to a five star when that is fixed anyway I hope u get this and change it have a nice day...
Seems Legit
by i55rex on 2018/07/23 01:08
Been using YT Music for about a month now and I’m pleased 100% so far! The My Mixtape section is great; I’ve had it play several songs that I love but hadn’t listened to in a while (oh the nostalgia). There are only a few glitches like how the app responds sometimes but not anything irritating to me in the least (some slow response times that last half a second). I know they are still working some bugs and kinks out, but I’ve yet to have the app crash on me since I’ve been using it. It’s my #1 go-to when listening to music on my phone whether I’m at home or driving. Can’t wait to see what new additions we get in the future!
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
I often cast music from the App on my Sony TV. Whenever it is connected to the TV, overall App behavior becomes different, here are few examples: 1) When I play from my downloaded list, it does not follow the list itself. Depending on what song I select to play from the downloaded list, the queue becomes random with songs which is not in sync / order with my list 2) Moving a song up / down in the list also doesn’t work well, if I try to drag a song from one position to another, and I hold down for longer than 2-3 seconds, the drag auto releases, and scrolls back to where I originally started the drag from 3) Switching between Song / Video on the top bar is very slow, and sometimes reverses my choice, I have also seen a song being paused when attempting to switch to/from Song / Video Besides this or when just using the App without being connected to the TV, it works great, just wish the integration was smoother for my particular scenario Using iPhone 11 Pro and have auto-update on for Apps, and the TV is brand new Sony, so everything is relatively up to date on my side
Missing albums
by kaiaT^T on 2020/08/12 03:21
The app is okay. I transferred all my music over from google play and I expected a better experience which was met half way. While it has its benefits there are a lot of down sides. Some artist pages are literally missing albums. For example Steven universe which has some of season one album in its top song list but you can’t find the album anywhere on their page. I also have another album from Steven universe which also isn’t on the artist page and when you click -go to artist- it takes to to the same page where the album literally does not exist. Another problem I have is I get notifications of artists that I have not subscribed to. I can get notified of their new songs but not the ones that I am subscribed to.
No new songs, not worth the money for membership
by exe error 666 on 2020/06/14 19:41
No good song recommendations, all it does is play your like songs over and over, and then finally when you get a new song it usually not a good one some weird type of stuff that just isn’t worth the membership, and to top it off you shouldn’t need to pay to have music in the back ground I should be able to have my phone off without a membership, honestly if they did that it would probably bring in a lot more people so that’s an idea and if no one likes it to bad this is an honest review and this is only my opinion not anyone else’s but it’s not a good music app, unless you have money, and even then it’s challenging to find new and good songs, which is just a pure disappointment., edit: changed from 3 star to 1 star app is to frustrating, this is just ridiculous if I could would give a .5 star if possible
Fix the playlist shuffling
by Jehjdjdlskbmaskjsjs on 2019/07/11 08:43
I have a playlist that I workout to which has like 400 songs on it but every time I hit shuffle it plays the same songs every time I hit the shuffle button on the playlist so it’s not truly shuffling the songs and it gets pretty repetitive, fix the shuffling system to where it shuffles everything from my playlist so I’m not listening to the same songs every time I go to turn on the playlist. Like if I put a song on there today and there’s a song I put on there two years ago I want the same probability that it might land on a song I haven’t heard in a long time. The whole principle of shuffling is to be truly random and I don’t feel like I’m getting that.
Great app but room for improvement
by Timacon on 2018/04/03 03:05
I love music and listen to it most everywhere I am that I can and your music library far surpasses any I’ve seen! I wish there were a few improvements that I’ve also heard others mention and those are being able to remove a song from the music que without having to wait till it plays and wish there was a way to indicate some artists I can’t stand so they don’t sneak in amongst my jam! I also wish the app was visible on the lock screen when I’m connected to my system via WiFi the way it is when I’m connected via Bluetooth, why is there a difference on how it functions? A few tweaks by listening to your users and it would be the perfect music app!
Downloaded songs...?
by 5-6-7-8-Nyna on 2019/11/02 01:26
Ever since this update 2 days ago, my downloaded songs have disappeared. I can access the full albums I’ve downloaded, but the dozens and dozens of random songs I had downloaded that were in they’re own little “downloaded songs” album/playlist/whatever are gone. I can access my liked songs, but those are different, I didn’t thumbs up every song I downloaded and vice versus. I want my album/playlist of downloaded songs back! Sometimes I want a mix of stuff, besides the offline playlist of 20 songs that the app has put together for me. I love this app. the $ I pay for the amount of music I can access and download is awesome...but I want to be able to download everything I’ve downloaded again! Please!
So much buffering
by Littlezeekers on 2019/05/18 16:45
I mostly listen to music while I’m working in the morning, I like to use the app because it does help discover music I would potentially like. My main issue with the app is every time I take out an AirPod to interact with another person it pauses my music and almost never picks back up. It try’s to buffer back where I was but I usually have to start the song over or just skip it. It’s rather annoying especially when it’s a podcast or a longer music playlist. Just seems like a big flaw that it can’t pick up where I left off, especially when I usually put my AirPod back in within a minute or two of taking it out. The only other issue is it plays a lot of repeat songs, mostly they’re songs that I’ve liked but I don’t discover new music by listening to the same stuff..
In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho.
by PORN STAR SWEETS on 2020/03/18 23:42
I absolutely LOVE this! No ads, Thank yoooou! Having everything at your finger tips and also it gives amazing finds and even ones you forgot about & hen will show you whole entire playlist. You want baby making music or old school rock ballads then you’re all set for hours with a playlist made, Or make your own! I have tons of playlists already. Plus you subscribed to the artist. ONLY thing I don’t like is the price. But it’s really not a lot when you think about how much time you save and being able to take with you on your cell with unlimited space!!
Issue
by ~I_Don't_Know~ on 2020/05/11 16:48
Okay, Idk how long I’ve used this app but I have for a little bit, and the only two issues are that, when I’m trying to add music to a new playlist sometimes I would make the playlist before hand, knowing I needed to add music to it. But I usually need to make a new one when I click add to playlist, because the one made before doesn’t show up on my list of playlists. Honestly it’s not that big of a deal but today I was trying to add music to a playlist but the playlist didn’t show up at all, no matter how many times I made it before I chose the song or when I made a new playlist after I chose the song and clicked add to playlist. Those are really the two main things but the first ones not that big of a deal.
Fix this
by Luke¡ on 2019/06/15 04:48
I love this app I have been using it for over a year now as my main music streaming app. It has been flawless in my mind ever since they made the update to download playlists offline. That is, until recently. Recently, about every fifth song that plays, wether it be from one of my playlists or a search, doesn’t load. This is extremely frustrating when I have to skip all of these songs which will never load and just skip constantly. It turns a 100 song playlist into only 30 minutes of actual music streaming. Please fix this bug it has ruined the app for me and stops me from listening to a select portion of all of my playlists.
I really want to love this app, but...
by Sire2K on 2020/06/19 17:10
I really want to love this app, but the bugs it contains drive me crazy enough not to make the switch from Google Play Music (which isn't without it's flaws, such as selecting genres in the new releases) which offers a better UX. One problem that shouldn't go without being mentioned is the fact that after ending an incoming call that caused the music to pause the music won't resume; in fact, it won't even allow the user to continue where s/he left off. Instead, the user will have to find the playlist/album again and remember what track was playing to resume. I hope this review doesn't fall on deaf ears (yes Google Devs, I'm speaking to you), as I fear that this might just be another of those projects that Google eventually drops instead of fixing.
Buggier than Play Music
by CO_Ryan on 2020/07/31 17:11
Play Music wasn't perfect, but it was better than this. If your commute takes you through extended periods with no data coverage, expect to be disappointed even with a fully downloaded play list. The queue gets mixed up and paired down. Songs will show up in the queue twice, back to back. You may even have to add the downloaded playlist back into the queue because every time the app moves to the next song, there's an error and the music pauses. Selecting to play the same exact play list while offline fixes the errors, but what is going on that prevents this app from being able to play a downloaded playlist continuously regardless of network availability. Strongly considering dumping all my Google paid services at this point. I'm pretty much over it. Will give this a bit more time, but my confidence is low.
It's getting worse
by Angry girlszzzzzzzzzz on 2018/06/15 15:28
They are slowly making this app worse. First they took away the slider that added or took away variety and now it seems like they are just trying to shove new music down my throat. I DONT WANT TO LISTEN TO THOSE SONGS. I also really enjoyed the "rediscover music you loved" tab because it was cool to see what I had listened to a year ago but in the new update they took that out for some reason. Also I used to be able to see other versions of songs and songs that were similar to that song by going into more info about it but they took that out too. That feature was pretty much the reason why I kept this app even after they got rid of other features. This app gets more boring, simple, and frustrating with every update. They should have just kept it the way it was when they first put it out. It was better that way.
It okay.
by KJ01 12 on 2020/07/12 15:54
I like the app and been using it to see if any of my favorite artist have new albums or songs I can listen to. Despite all the ads the app itself is good. One problem I have and can’t get over is the recommendation or personalized playlist it’s just not me nothing I would listen to. Even when I check for recent updates still nothing. A helpful tip for you guys. Would be to study the person music what they listen to and compare different songs to see what gives them the satisfaction of what there listening to not random things. Please take the time to consider this advice it would be helpful for my experience and others. Thank you☺️👍
Could have been better..
by Amend90 on 2020/03/09 19:27
Overall the first week of having this app was amazing the best music experience I will have in a long time. Now I use it and I have to pat for it to be in my pocket turned off. I can’t even open other apps without having it cost a paywall from this app. I get it that you would need more cash as the app is free and that’s good but when you have an advertisement every before and after a song is it really necessary? Know I sound like a major Karen but I’m trying to be honest won’t get the fun I had listening to music again.. The reason I’m giving it three stars is because I don’t have that much passion for this app although I enjoyed the time I had with it even if I can’t get it anymore..
Much improved; still needs more work.
by TaoGroves on 2019/10/21 02:50
This app has improved vastly since its introduction a few years ago, and is now one of the top music streaming platforms in my opinion. First, Google’s algorithms deliver the best mix of what I like along with new suggestions. Secondly, I appreciate the ability to seamlessly switch between music and videos in the app. Lastly, the offline mixtape is an extremely useful feature. Always having 100 fresh songs in my back pocket for those no service areas is a lifesaver. The app is still a bit clunky (especially the library) but I like it a lot.
Needs improvements
by herom99 on 2019/09/14 14:15
I would like to use this app 100% of the time instead of Google Play Music, however, there are certain things I don’t like. 1) when using my AirPods, I can double tap to pause, but when I double tap to resume—it doesn’t work! I need to go directly into the app and hit play. Hitting play on the lock screen won’t work, either, as it just keeps spinning. It forces me to go directly into the app and start the song from the beginning. 2) it’s cool that you can get both audio and videos on the same app. But it’s weird when the app plays the audio of the video version. You could be listening to a song (video) with long pauses that only make sense when you’re watching a video.
Great app! Just Missing a Few Things...
by Pretty Hot Thang on 2020/07/11 15:42
I love this music app and have canceled all my other music subscriptions. The variety is great and it is super easy to use. The only thing I wish is 1) there was a Watch app (I mean, c’mon guys! This should be a no brainer!!! I use this app when I’m exercising and it’s a hassle to have to use your phone to control your music. Abs 2) I wish there was a button to turn off explicit music. I teach a spin class and I’m always nervous about the songs that come on auto play when my playlist ends because they all have cussing in them. Plus, I definitely can play this music around my kids! It should be easier to listen to clean music.
The old Bait and Switch...
by SBR Shooter on 2019/11/07 19:20
Starting out, they give you the premium version for 2 weeks, so you can enjoy listening to music while using other apps and also when your phone screen goes to sleep. Once that trial period ends and you are using the free version of the app, you get 15+minute long advertisements and the music stops every 3 songs to ask if you are still listening and forces you to hit the “yes” button. The premium version of this app is great, but making the free version so terrible that it is unusable is a marketing game that I’m just not going to play. This app is worthless to me if I have to constantly interact with it to keep the music playing for more than 10 minutes at a time. And the fact is, that it’s all just a thinly veiled attempt to get you addicted to the convenience of the premium version.
App Needs EQ for Better Bluetooth Playback
by Chef on Chefs Feed on 2020/04/17 13:24
Love the app! With certain Bluetooth headphones or using on systems like Sonos (especially with volume limit off) certain hertz to megahertz can either distort music quality or cause trouble with devices trying to understand if music is in mono or stereo. Having an EQ can fix the problem or even having a stereo or mono function would be great. This happens more when viewing videos or music either recorded live or DJ sets type recordings. Most people that upload music use a Y jack that if they don’t select stereo or mono prior to recording, makes the problem worse.
The app has a horrible radio
by Budrocket on 2019/04/12 19:41
This app does music well if you know what bands you like, but the radio feature is bad. If you pick a song or artist to start a radio with then the songs that come up tend to be repeats. Let me explain, if you pick Linkin Park to start a radio with, it will play the exact same songs as an Avenged Sevenfold radio. The app does not offer a wide range of random radio songs to listen to. Pandora does an amazing job at radio as it throws new music that you've never heard of in your playlist. I wish this app did that. If you play Kendrick Lamar then the radio is the same as an Eminem radio song list. The artists are in the same broad music genre sure but their music styles are completely different.
Not as good as google play
by michk72 on 2020/08/10 00:18
It seems there are ten extra steps to get anywhere. No index on your lists, so you’re scrolling forever; they recently changed how they display stuff by artists (now all songs are in one long list, and if the album you want to listen to isn’t on the top of their list, you have to take an extra step to get to the album listing. I have a lot of international artists and sometimes it’s easier to find what I want to listen to by album cover); playlists don’t automatically start over (there’s an auto play, but it doesn’t start the playlist over, it just plays random stuff YM thinks you might like, sometimes stuff I don’t even have in my library). Am one more terrible discovery away from switching music services.
Long time google play user
by bstell33 on 2020/07/20 16:25
Just started using this because google play recommend i transfer my library. After discovering that google plans on shutting down google play music I made the switch. I am so pleased by this switch. The layout is so much more organized and easy to navigate. I am getting better recommendations and the addition of viewing music videos is awesome. I’m excited to keep using it. One thing I’d love for them to add/ improve on is their music sharing options. Adding the ability to add songs to your Instagram story or other social media would be sweet.
My Two Cents
by Dub-G12 on 2019/10/15 23:37
I really enjoy this app. I like how it’s how easy it is to search for different artists and music. I also enjoy the fact of not having to deal with ads or that I can close the screen on my phone without the song stopping. I do wish that the “Your Playlist” would update with newer songs related to the music I listen to on average. It’s usually the same songs over and over. I also don’t like that it will completely change after listening to one type of song. For example, I mostly listen to Rap/Hip Hop but as soon as I play one Disney song for my kids the whole playlist gets flooded with Disney songs.
WOWed! If you like to hear music from your genre, come here!
by wiseleader on 2019/07/25 03:35
I’m not kidding about how I said in the subject of this comment! This is my favorite app for hearing music. If you can pick specific artists that make good music, it doesn’t matter whatever type of genre you want to listen to. This is my first type of app that does know how to suggest very similar music to your current song and video of your choice. I have just finished my main point of this app and it works well and worth the 5stars BUT I don’t think it that good because the premium version is too much money so it’s worth the 4 stars if you like this app. If this gets a lower price it’s a 5!
Good aside from recent updates
by Grooveshark on 2018/08/19 22:03
Good app overall but has many issues. The app used to have a lot of variety in the music and showed a lot of artists I haven’t heard of before. Now the app recommends the same 5 songs every time I open the app. Every time I open a radio off of a specific artist (I listen to a lot of hip-hop and rap) I hear the one song and then playlist of “popular” music. It’s the same line up of songs every time. Frustrating that the slider bar for variety has been taken away, that was a major reason for switching from other streaming services. Being able to change variety allows me to stream music longer, not getting as frustrated that I hear the same songs again and again. The music that comes preloaded into playlists plays the same songs over and over and over again with no way to remove them. Even if I dislike the song, it will still play over and over and over and over and over. See how annoying it is when it does it over and over again? Yeah. Aside from these MAJOR issues, not a bad music streaming app.
About the new version
by greenFuneral on 2018/06/28 16:11
So previously I was able to see just songs I’ve listened to recently so I could just refresh and choose from things I know. I use this app explicitly for working out and so I don’t want to be listening to stations and random songs I’m not familiar with. The new update enforces this and I absolutely hate it. I had to start liking the songs I know I would be wanting to listen to, and it takes me probably twice as much time to find something than before. I don’t even scroll down on the main page anymore because it’s full of unwanted suggestions. It’s absolutely garbage and I want the old layout back without all those random suggestions I couldn’t care less about. It was a fantastic app, why did you have to ruin it?
App Devs making it worse with each update

I feel like every time it receives a new update, this app just gets worse. For example, they recently got rid of or moved the customization option where you could change what kind of music you were listening to to either make it more diverse or exclusive. But now it's gone and I keep getting songs I've never even heard of which I really dislike. Also, was changing the logo to make it dark really necessary? I liked the white colored logo. And please give us the option to actually choose songs to put into our playlist without liking them because whenever I do like them, they always appear. I just want a nice balance for once...
Fix the minimizer

I have had this app for a couple of years now and I think it is really great. I like being able to listen to music that I like when working on homework. Lately though I have been having some problems with the drop down menu to adjust what song I want to listen to next. It will either not let me move the song up or instead after dropping down the menu to pick what song I want to listen to next, it will just minimize the whole screen and take me back to the main screen. I will still be able to listen to the song that I just picked but I won’t be able to change what’s next. Overall a great app, but would like that bug fixed.
