Need major improvements
by Sprocell on 2021/01/17 23:30
First I don’t like the glitches and sometimes even with the premium my music stops while doing other things 🙄. And you cannot organize them by alphabet in the order you put them like the old YouTube app. And you cannot tell what songs are removed anymore very disappointed.
Garbage. Negative a billion stars
by Gulping haterade on 2021/01/17 22:54
This app is horrible. Google play was 10 times better. The UI makes me feel like I have tunnel vision. My Artists page is sorted by recently added by default which makes ZERO sense and it takes way too many clicks to get to that section. It's like they're trying to push you into experiencing new music or something which I'm perfectly capable of doing myself. Let's be real. People are trying to change artists quickly at stoplights, not go through 4 different pages to hopefully find the artist they were looking for. I'm switching to Spotify

Unusable
by satkacity on 2021/01/17 19:12
I have no explanation how such poorly made app replaced google music. 1) App is not utilizing pre-downloaded songs, you have to select them. 2) YouTube videos playlists, really!? If I would like to watch something, I would use Netflix or even YouTube app itself. 3) Usability: does anyone even tried to use it personally? Like I still have no idea how to check the latest song or how to get rid integration with YouTube. It’s kind of work, so 2 stars, but lagging of basic functionality.
Offline Listening
by ThisPokeGame on 2021/01/17 18:48
What’s the point of downloading music when it won’t show your playlist when you have no internet? I’m confused to as why YouTube let’s you find your downloads but this app doesn’t?
I tried YouTube this is the best option for good music
by Mayor of girl Meadows on 2021/01/17 17:37
I tried YouTube for all my music but then I switch to YouTube music andIt’s a lot easier for just music and when you’re also editing you can listen to music or anything else on your phone you can still listen to the YouTube music

Love the subscription, hate the app
by Hecolahbkee on 2021/01/17 15:21
I have whole playlists that I made where only 3 songs are “available” on the app. On the web, they are all there so why does is say “song is unavailable” in the app?? The songs ARE NOT unavailable, just unavailable through the app! Why? This makes it not worth the space it takes up on my phone. I’m not the only one with this problem so I don’t know why they won’t fix this or tell us why this is happening. I absolutely love my subscription and I love that I can make my own playlists...this is why I initially got a subscription...but if you can’t actually LISTEN to your playlists in the app, what is the point of the app at all? PLEASE ANSWER TO YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS BEFORE THEY LEAVE!
Love my music

Listas de reproducción
by Beltis85 on 2021/01/17 13:55
Todo está muy bien, lo único que no me gusta es que si empece a escuchar una lista de reproducción y si al siguiente día quiero seguir escuchando esa misma lista, me la pone desde el principio, No me la continúa donde me quede el día anterior, me gustaría más que continuara donde me quede
Better search
by CV gtbdff on 2021/01/17 08:31

Pretty good
by Amèlie.M.D on 2021/01/17 00:57
I enjoy used YouTube music a lot! Although it would be better if I didn’t have to scroll through a really long list just to pick my favorite artist.
perfect

LITERALLY THE PERFECT MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE, CANT FIND A PUBLISHED SONG?? YOUTUBES GOT IT LOL
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING
by Feedbee films on 2021/01/16 22:43
If you watch as much YouTube and listen to a lot of music like me, you have to get YouTube premium us better than just getting Spotify premium because you get YouTube perks too, YouTube music
One tiny problem
by annie(: on 2021/01/16 20:37
Hi I think this app is fantastic but I wish you could still play music well on a website but sadly you can’t but I mean they do need to make money but still it great
money.
by Oneandonly_OliviaFrederick on 2021/01/16 18:17
so basically this app is making you pay for: no ads and being able to connect you’re speakers and it’s hella annoying. don’t get me started on the prices please- it’s just annoying and they gotta stop asking for money.

Great app to use to listen to music the main place I use to listen to new and old next to every song in the world can be found on YouTube.
Needs comments

The only thing this app is missing is a comment section!
Just one thing
by scrappyxd87 on 2021/01/16 04:30
I like pretty much everything about this app except for one small thing. I don’t like the fact that you can’t exit the app or turn off your phone without the music stopping. This can also take a huge toll on battery as well from the phone constantly being on rather than off with some background activity. If you could make it so that it’s possible to exit app/turn off phone and the music keeps playing that would be great thanks.
Not even a music app
by sar_ahyoung on 2021/01/16 03:49
How are you guys different from the original youtube app?!?!?? You guys can’t even stream songs with the app partially closed!! And you have the AUDACITY to call this a music app? How the heck does THAT even work?! Smh

Great service but...
by NjOlds on 2021/01/16 02:09
If they would just fix some of their issues I would 5 star them! 1.) Stop streaming music I’ve downloaded!!! Why stream it when it’s already in my device?!?! 2.) Stop searching for internet before allowing me to do anything on the app when opening it! 3.) Why can’t I give a song thumbs up/down when offline? 4.) What’s up with shuffle? Every time I shuffle a playlist I get the same shuffled order. Update 01/15/21 They have fixed some of the issues. Still needs some work but I think it’s way better than AM.
Wont let me leave the app
by NHsledin on 2021/01/16 01:37
It is great to listen to my music and have my play list but it is not letting me leave the app. It has happen to me before but it went away a I could leave the app and turn my phone and listen. I don’t know why but I have turn my phone completely off and it still is not working. But in all it is a great way to find songs that I like and listen to them.
Love it!

It is the worst app
by mimi collens on 2021/01/15 16:05
I enjoyed the app for a long time.But after the update I couldn’t do anything any more like close the app and still listen to the songs.I also didn’t have to have ads and now there are ads.The company wants 12.99 a month now and I’m not paying that much and I believe that the company is selfish.

What did he say?

We need lyrics! It’s a great music app, and I really enjoy it. One are for improvement would be to offer lyrics that scroll with the music.

by SongBongChong on 2021/01/15 08:33
My only complaint is that it takes forever to scroll through your songs because there’s no alphabet on the side.
Worst experience for your personal music collection
by Saamy2020 on 2021/01/15 05:37
Forced to use this compared to music app from below. This app is only for those willing to pay for their pricey subscription. They've made it impossible to play from your professional collection. Never trust an online service offering anything for free. Unfortunately monetizing by forcing people into a horrible experience is the way instead of building something users enjoy and hence decide to pay. I'm sure these decisions above the pay grade of the developers. Stay away for listening to your personal collection!!!
Glitching
by indrafox on 2021/01/15 05:07
It’s kinda slow and it glitches sometimes as if the apps don’t remember what to do please fix the glitching problem and slowness thank you.

Ad free experience is bees knees. Other than that, I get the concept of a separate interface just for music to simplify. Would love to connect to my Bose Qc earbuds via just my Apple watch so I don’t have to lug around my phone. Wishlist item ☺️
why would anyone like this?
by Sleeping_tiger on 2021/01/14 21:29
am so disappointed since moving from google play. but apparently they have so many good reviews. it is terrible. so many bugs and issues makes me wonder if its only me!?
🤷🏾‍♂️
by mr.illz on 2021/01/14 18:38
I miss Google play. Just because I hit the start radio of an artist or a song doesn’t mean I want to hear them every other song. I need a better longer mix
Music quality and design could be better
by ipodlove25 on 2021/01/14 16:26
Good overall but needs music quality control. Also everything is tiny, hard to read, especially if you are outside and exercise.
Trying to switch from Spotify
by IgnatiusHS on 2021/01/14 15:40
Wanting to migrate from Spotify and what is really annoying is being bombarded with requests to submit what I like so it can build an algorithm for me. Spotify’s approach is all behind the scenes... I pick and play what I like, then it delivers fresh content based on my native choices.
No other can beat it

I thought Google play was nice but YouTube music is awesome like you can’t go wrong every style nice and clear and you even get videos
needs gui overhaul
by midi fister on 2021/01/14 08:48
this app was clearly designed to force advertisements on you or force you into buying a subscription. the amount of repetitive steps to not have ads on music I already uploaded is absurd. even after already telling the app to search just my uploaded library it's easy to end up on stupid YouTube stuff. look I'm not paying $16+ a month for your music service when everyone else is $10 or less. I'll just throw a micro SD in a $30 android device and have all my music, ad free, always available.
NO SLEEP TIMER!!! nd a lot of bugs
by Apoorv Rana on 2021/01/14 08:13
A sleep timer is a must in any music player. It should be added as soon as possible. And my screen keeps on freezing nd glitching while browsing songs and artists. This all should be fixed.
Gotta change the station listening feature
by MartinbYang on 2021/01/14 02:41
As the title states, when I hit start station while I am playing one specific piece of music, on a desktop app or web browser version, it does not disturb the current playing song actually it just automatically generates a list songs to he played after this one finishes But in this app, it always restarts the current one which is a headache for me
Songs I have liked and now disliked won’t go away
by hyperion4113 on 2021/01/13 21:29
In my “Liked” playlist, there are still songs that I don’t want there. I tried disliking them, I tried removing them from my library, even deleting the app and they just won’t go away. Its super annoying whenever I play my likes that I have to remove them from the queue every single time I like the app but this bug or glitch is making it super annoying... Edit: just found out that songs that are liked on youtube but not YouTube music will stay in your likes even if you dislike them and remove them from library. If I dislike a song it should go away. It shouldn’t stay until I also dislike the song on YouTube. I get that you can select to make them not intertwined but if I dislike it on one platform it shouldn’t show there anymore
I Don’t Even Know
by ArjyAC on 2021/01/13 20:15
I’ve used this app for a very long time, originally everything was fine, but suddenly songs would no longer work in my downloads section, and then my 1000+ download playlist just disappeared. I was literally listening to it and it disappeared.

Free trial as of now
by Softball Mom Texas Life on 2021/01/13 17:17
So I started the free trial and so far I’m pleased with this app! I also have Spotify but this is pretty cool as I can see videos and get access to lyrics and play it on my tv I hitch is quite nice and no commercials which is Perfect!! Texas user 🇨🇱

Great app but hard to navigate
by BigBoyChungus524 on 2021/01/13 13:07
It has a plethora of music on it but it’s very annoying to move around in in google play it was simple and you could get to your songs easy in YouTube music it like a four button process
Good Music App
by Roy Boy 0074 on 2021/01/13 12:27
Integration of You Tube videos and a music library is great but I’d enjoy the app more if the music library was separated by music uploaded directly by the user or music saved from the app.
My favorite streaming service
by Zachh? on 2021/01/13 12:07
I believe that youtube music isnt the best streaming service, but it is the most for your buck. Not only do you get YouTube premium but you also get a music streaming service. I feel like the best part about YT music is that you can get leaks and unreleased songs at your leisure, unlike other populars like apple or Spotify.
Has it all,
by louisiana stump jumper on 2021/01/13 08:26
It has never let me down.any song I have ever wanted to hear from my youth or brand new it has had them all.thats something to say because iam 50 years old.i will continue to listen for another 50 hopefully

Missing discographies and entire artist pages
by Taterhead96 on 2021/01/13 04:06
I’ve recently noticed that there’s an issue when searching for music. There are albums, songs, and artists that just don’t appear in searches anymore. Namely Tyler the creators flowerboy, or $NOT’s entire discography. But it has happened with loads of other artists as well.

Only music app that gives recommendations I’ll actually listen to
Okay
by Paolaura on 2021/01/12 22:15
It has a variety of music and great if you want to use it at work on a browser. My only issue is using it with my Google Home Mini. Unlike Spotify and Deezer, it doesn't show the song that is playing on my speaker when I open the app from Google Home. I have to use Shazam to get the details of the song, so not always the best option to discover new music using Google.
I dont need your recommendation
by 어ㅜㅜ어ㅓ on 2021/01/12 21:19
just wanted to listen on youbue channel music in the regular order. this app is incomplete and only can play with their recommendations.
Annoying
by fftyfgcvjfugychdtur on 2021/01/12 20:00
I don’t like that when it’s sorted by alphabet in your library you can’t skip to a certain letter in the alphabet, you ha e to scroll through the whole thing. And then when it’s on shuffle and you click the up arrow to pull up your queue, if you move your hand even slightly, the queue closes and you have to reopen it. You have to put your phone down for the queue to remain up. Whoever approved this app for release should probably rethink their career. I don’t know how you can go from such a functional app (google play) to this garbage
Great service, bad iOS app
by Mike3292 on 2021/01/12 17:37
I love the feature set and ability to leverage my listening history to find new music to listen to. Often I’ll just search for a song and let auto play take care of the rest, having an on-demand soundtrack created for me. I removed a stars for the app not caring at all about iOS design guidelines - it looks like they designed an Android app.
Discover New Music from the past
by Got Satisfaction on 2021/01/12 16:17
I’ve recently discovered the YouTube Music app. It’s like a best friend. Comfort Food for my musical appetite. And easily streaming to my Roku TVs with the AirPlay feature takes it to a higher level. I especially like all the new collaborations with musicians from their homes and from worldwide locations during this Pandemic time . I’m looking forward to the positive creations that have evolved from necessity during this tragic period of deadly sickness. Thanks YouTube Music. Safe wishes.
Amazing app!

Idea
by KevinJones79 on 2021/01/12 14:39
I wish you could do the A/B loop a section. Most of you probably don’t know what that is. It’s where you hit a button at a point in a song, and hit it again and it loops that section. It’ll repeat 1:24 to 1:58 over and over if you select that section. That would be cool, especially because I’m a guitar teacher.
Switched from Apple Music
by Saint Valentine 1994 on 2021/01/12 13:29
Modern music access is less about whether I can ask Siri to play a specific song and more about if I can hear new talented people put together a banger of a melody and post it to YouTube without any sort of music industry red tape. It’s more satisfying to hear new talent emerge than it is to hear a mass produced version of the same song nine months later.

Best music app
by jonathanNastasi on 2021/01/12 04:20
Before it used to crash and the music used to stop. But now it is just amazing. When you play an old music or any music it shows you more of the same year or genre. Listen music on Tejeda background. Getting the family pack is the best option. 6 accounts! My whole family lives it
It’s good but...
by Weaboo546 on 2021/01/11 22:08
The app is g r e a t, I didn’t like it when i got it after google music shut down but it’s honestly better! The problem is, let’s just say you shuffle and it’s greatly organized, and you leave it alone for some time, not shutting down the app but just going on like, tumblr, and then come back to it to see no music, like you don’t have the shuffled ver. Of the playlist, that’s my only complaint

Has many different bugs. They usually get fixed and replaced with new ones. The error this time is that it keeps playing the same playlist after Iselect a different one each time
AMAZING
by Aspen_e on 2021/01/11 19:51
It’s my favorite music streaming app, it has all of my favorite songs on it unlike Spotify. It’s honestly slept on, more people should use it. It has a really clean layout too, it’s very easy to use. 10/10 would recommend.
Not great.

I have only one complaint about Youtube Music. I think it is a great app and I understand it’s a newish app so there will be some bugs. Sometimes when I open the app, it thinks my phone is flipped sideways and it stays frozen on my phone that way and I can’t click anything. I just close the app and open it again and it works. Amazing app and I have a few suggestions. I wish you could customize your playlist covers with your own pictures, and I wish that there was a lyrics option for when you’re listening to the song. Once again, amazing app and I love Youtube Premium.

Great app wish it would use your favorite Music to generate Music you could listen too
The same notification all the time?
by BurNIng!! on 2021/01/11 14:43
Every time y close the app I get the same notification so you realize how annoying it is, don’t want your music to stop ... every single time ?? And when you open the app again the same notification!! Seriously I get it is way too much
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....
So bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
I don’t even know where to start with just how buggy and unusable this app and YT Music is overall. It’s not a step down from Google Play - it’s ten steps down. GP worked flawlessly, you could edit metadata (like artwork), stream through your Sonos for FREE and it has/had a simple User interface. YTM has none of that and it’s simply inexcusable. All they had to do was rebrand GPM and call it a day. Instead, we get an app that is so frustrating to use. Plug it in CarPlay and you don’t get a “most recent” screen like every, single other music app gives you. You have to manually navigate to what you want. If you want to start up where you left off before, you have to use the app on the phone and make at least 3 clicks to get to your recent album/songs. It also doesn’t remember your playback settings. If you click on “repeat” for an album, it will usually stop by the second play. If you don’t have repeat on and you’re at the last song of an album, hitting the |> button won’t take you back to the first track. Again, that is just BASIC functionality. If you want to stream your library through your Sonia system? Well, with GP it was free. Now? You have to pay for the 9.99/mo upgrade fee for YTM “Premium.” No thanks, Google. You don’t take away a free service and give us an inferior one as a replacement and have the gall to charge people for it.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
I truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating.
Google Play Music converters will be highly dissatisfied
by KatxIsxBack on 2020/12/31 01:40
I have had nothing but complaints about this app since having to move here from Google Play. It's become such a chore to listen to my own music that it's completely put me off listening to it. I rarely use this app. I much prefer Pandora or other music apps at this point. I want to be able to pick up where I left off in a song/album/playlist, hours/days/weeks later like I was able to in GPM. I don't want ads to listen to my own music. I don't want your suggestions added to my music. I don't want to be asked to upgrade to premium. I just want to listen to MY MUSIC. I also don't understand why buffer times are so much worse on here than GPM. I didn't have any issues with listening to my songs. But on this app, it takes a few tried for a song to play. Like it can't decide to load the song or something. I'm not sure. But it's annoying having to try to get the song to play multiple times before it will actually play. And then in the middle of a playlist, the song stopping for the same issue. Again, I will reiterate none of these issues occurred on GPM. TL;DR: I miss Google Play Music.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it. This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about. Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
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 is my first review I’ve ever written on Apple
by LordBeard on 2020/09/20 13:28
This app...it’s a lot. I mean I was forced to come to this app. Visually, I love the interface over Google Music. Having the videos here are cool. The mixes are usually better than Google Music as well, but that’s where it ends. The force closing is tragic. If someone calls or you enter the app back quickly it will close the app. Unlike Google Music, it won’t even pick off where you left. Why are playlists not in alphabetical order...what in the crazy town of an idea was that. You can’t even search for your playlist, like you could on Google Music, without turning up a ton of other results and never yours. I mean these are like basic functions, I don’t ask for much, I ask for what i had to be what I had. This app was out months before y’all made us switch. So the basic functionality of Google music was just bypassed. I’m upset. I can’t even go back to Google Music. It’s like y’all are forcing me to go Apple Music but all of my downloads, about 10,000, are here. Sigh.
this app is great but
by Kenzie2004 on 2020/04/26 11:42
it could be better the “my mixtape” is just music that i went out of my way to find it music i have in my likes or downloads rarely is there new music in there that i haven't heard, along with that if my mixtape is supposed to be songs that i like and etc then don’t play different music at different times, in the morning it plays different music than in the afternoon and night which is okay but i like to hear everything and my morning music is the same as my night time and my afternoon music. Along with the play more music for me, if the new discover playlist or whatever it’s called is supposed to help me find new music it would be nice to make it more accurate I've never liked a song that played in that playlist and it’s not even the type of music i listen to and i’ll listen to anything. also it needs to be updated all the time not every Wednesday.
Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?
by IStoppingPowerI on 2018/06/02 01:12
(Updated On Exp) Starting to love this new look actually. I can see the songs I enjoy replaying come up well at the top section. What was great before was tapping a track that I’ll enjoy, and wondering - what would some remixes/covered/related tracks sound like. The older “more” button or what the current “i”/“Information” button had previously done this. It was awesome! I was hooked. I could find so many great songs from other artists/DJs and so on by finding a great hit, then tapping those buttons. Now those features aren’t to be found. I don’t feel confident paying because I can get the same great hits/music from streaming services that I’ve never tried before. I was a student for all the time I’ve used it (1.5 years) as well - so I really do love the app! It’s harsh pressing the info button and seeing nothing.
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15

Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
It’s ok
by grizzlemynizzle on 2020/09/18 16:50
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t male a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered.
Meh
by furhdab on 2020/08/13 12:57
I love the amount of music available! I came from google play music so this was great! My quips though and I hope these are changes that come along: my library doesn’t give me the ability to choose a letter and then get taken to that area, I literally have to scroll to let’s say the H’s... which wouldn’t be bad if I didn’t have over 3000 songs in my library. You can’t change the song when your phone is locked, you have to go into the app to do that and pause it. Also when you go to an artist’s page and click a song by them, it doesn’t just play their next top song it goes to a different artist that is similar and starts playing a song by them. And every time I remove a song from my que, the app forces you back to the top of the list and then you have to scroll back down to where you were.
Can't customize anything
by killershadow115 on 2019/07/23 08:47
Alot of the recommended stations are just some main stream popular artist I never listen too. Let me add my own playlist or artist to my main menue play lists. Let me add or move wdgests around. And for crying out loud all the playlist have the same songs... Like if I click on a dubstep song or something why put something non related to dubstep there? Same with Nightcore or electro music.. let me make my experience with this app better by allowing me to change and move things around. I don't even scroll down because it's all garbage that I'll never click on. It's so sad that this app just get worse and worse. Now you added that song video thing when the old one worked perfectly fine. Now It randomly switches to video even if I selected song. I had a grate experience with this app for like 3 years but it's just getting worse and worse over that time
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
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
This app has a lot of potential and I’m not sure who decided to have it work the way it does but very simple things this app doesn’t offer is holding it back so much. For instance if I click add song to queue it makes so much more sense to add said song to a new list that starts after the current song playing not at the end of the shuffled playlist which can have hundreds of songs in it. Adding to a queue means you want to listen to it next or at the least soon. And why for the love of god is it almost the end of 2020 and this app doesn’t support the ability to remember the shuffle and replay settings when you come back to the app. I mean such simple things like this are littered through the app and are holding what has potential to be the best music streaming app back from the top. TL:DR Fire whoever your app dev is cause they are trash.
Saved items keep don’t update automatically
by Go MArk on 2019/09/24 20:44
Please, if I have a playlist synced in “saved items” it supposed to update (download automatically) all the new tunes which I put on the same name “online” playlist, but it never uptade itself, the only way is deleting the playlist (in saved offline) and download all the way AGAIN to get sometimes just 3 new tunes I must to download like 3 hundreds tunes in order to keeps up-to-date my offline same name synced playlist. I’m thinking to cancel my subscription only because this, it already bugging me a lot. Second thing the music VIDEOS in a playlist synced to play offline some of them just play the music sound, if I created a Music VIDEOS playlist it’s supposed to play ONLY VIDEOS in all of musics which i put on it, not just a few aleatory (p.s: off course I added the video option when I did the prior search). TKS
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.
One thing...
by Nymjy on 2020/10/20 22:19
So I really like this app because it almost reads your mind with the songs you want to listen to and I like that it gives you the option to watch the music video that goes with the song. The thing is (and I’ve seen complaints about this in other reviews), when you first get the app it asks it you want a free trial for premium. A lot of apps do this so I wasn’t too surprised but anyway I didn’t want to use mine, or at least not yet. So i just pressed the little “x” so I could go on without the trial but when I opened the app like a minute later it told me that I was currently in the free trial even though I’m 100% sure that I pressed the “x.” So ya, that’s pretty much my only complaint. Otherwise it’s a great app. Thanks for reading!
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!
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
When I first downloaded the app I loved it because I could make my own playlists and it was always recommending me new music and artist and was always up to date when artist released new music, however I’ve had the app for a couple of years and I noticed that it started to say “song unavailable” and at first it was a couple of songs and I thought it got removed because some were songs I Hadn’t listened to in a while, however today I go on the app to listen to music and over half of my playlist with songs says song unavailable and when I tried to remove it and re- add the song it wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’m sad because I love this app, but I heard it happened to people with a premium account as well, so unfortunately I have to find another app to listen to music on in the meantime. Please fix this!
Good but...
by EdG70 on 2020/10/18 23:48
Been using the plataform for almost a year. It’s good but could have some improvements. Some of the songs are not recorded at the same volume so that creates a fluctuation when listening causing you to constantly adjust the volume. Second there’s no way (or at least I haven’t found it) to arrange the downloaded music into files in order to listen “offline”. Because you can have files, but they won’t play unless you are online. Offline you can arrange the songs in a “play next” but it won’t stay like that when you close the app. I would appreciate if someone tells me how to do this. Because I would like to have a “working out” file or “reading” file to listen offline.
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
I often cast music from the App on my Sony TV. Whenever it is connected to the TV, overall App behavior becomes different, here are few examples: 1) When I play from my downloaded list, it does not follow the list itself. Depending on what song I select to play from the downloaded list, the queue becomes random with songs which is not in sync / order with my list 2) Moving a song up / down in the list also doesn’t work well, if I try to drag a song from one position to another, and I hold down for longer than 2-3 seconds, the drag auto releases, and scrolls back to where I originally started the drag from 3) Switching between Song / Video on the top bar is very slow, and sometimes reverses my choice, I have also seen a song being paused when attempting to switch to/from Song / Video Besides this or when just using the App without being connected to the TV, it works great, just wish the integration was smoother for my particular scenario Using iPhone 11 Pro and have auto-update on for Apps, and the TV is brand new Sony, so everything is relatively up to date on my side
Issue with Bluetooth Performance
by minceem on 2020/11/19 19:10
So overall the app works quite well, but there is a small bug when trying to play over Bluetooth or with Apple CarPlay. When selecting a song, the song title and artist shows, but the album doesn’t come up. The album title only displays if you change to the next song. Also, if you decide to start a song over, the song length will not reset, so if you start a 4 minute song over at the 3 minute mark, the clock will continue rolling, so you could be displaying 6 minutes of song time for a 4-minute song. These are obviously not issues affecting playback, but it’s enough for my OCD-self to notice. Should be an easy enough fix to implement.
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!
Not user friendly or reliable
by Atheimum on 2020/12/28 11:18
We use music in our kids rooms at night to help them sleep and muffle the household sounds. We loved google play. Unfortunately this program has been less than reliable or easy to use. It isn’t compatible with many older devices, so we were forced to upgrade the phones that sit on a shelf and play music. Stupid. The app stops playing randomly through the night. I have to restart the music, which is on repeat, but still stops. Its only played through 4-5 times since we were forced to switch. The repeat button is only available when the phone is in landscape, so when music cuts off i have to take the phone off the speaker, find repeat, then put it back all without waking a sleeping child. Not fun at 2am. These problems need to be fixed asap. Absolutely crap.
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..
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.
Overall, a great platform
by Maxwell Darwin on 2020/10/26 06:27
I really enjoy the selection of Music available. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the user interface can be a little confusing at times. No ability to shuffle or repeat while on a track and while using Apple CarPlay, no ability to like a track, which means if I want to remember a track for later, I have to look down at my phone. Actually less helpful than just putting a like button on the track image on Apple CarPlay. I also don’t always like the auto playlist selection. It seems the algorithm could use some work because it has a hard time matching the mood of my initial playlist or song(s).
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.
barely usable on iphone 8 running latest OS
by digitaldelete on 2020/08/27 22:43
this is the only music service i use but it’s honestly a shame at how bad it is. on my iphone 8 it is just miserably slow. if i want to hit next song, i’ll go and open the app and it’s still on the screen from 5 songs ago. i have to then wait for it to load to hit next. also you’ll get to use the media buttons on the lock screen like 20 percent of the time. same thing is you swipe up, good luck using media buttons to pause already playing music. lastly i absolutely hate its integration with my google home. again you’re stuck with the slowness of the app to get next or pause. now it’s even worse, if i want to change the playlist from my phone, i’ll go ahead and open the app which pauses the music...just from opening the app. the only fix is to hard close the app, reopen and reconnect to the home.
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.
Developers read ⭐️ 🌟
by DudefuseTIB on 2020/07/07 18:53
Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user. Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music. another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.
Could have been better..
by Amend90 on 2020/03/09 19:27
Overall the first week of having this app was amazing the best music experience I will have in a long time. Now I use it and I have to pat for it to be in my pocket turned off. I can’t even open other apps without having it cost a paywall from this app. I get it that you would need more cash as the app is free and that’s good but when you have an advertisement every before and after a song is it really necessary? Know I sound like a major Karen but I’m trying to be honest won’t get the fun I had listening to music again.. The reason I’m giving it three stars is because I don’t have that much passion for this app although I enjoyed the time I had with it even if I can’t get it anymore..

by Sprocell on 2021/01/17 23:30
First I don’t like the glitches and sometimes even with the premium my music stops while doing other things 🙄. And you cannot organize them by alphabet in the order you put them like the old YouTube app. And you cannot tell what songs are removed anymore very disappointed.
Garbage. Negative a billion stars
by Gulping haterade on 2021/01/17 22:54
This app is horrible. Google play was 10 times better. The UI makes me feel like I have tunnel vision. My Artists page is sorted by recently added by default which makes ZERO sense and it takes way too many clicks to get to that section. It's like they're trying to push you into experiencing new music or something which I'm perfectly capable of doing myself. Let's be real. People are trying to change artists quickly at stoplights, not go through 4 different pages to hopefully find the artist they were looking for. I'm switching to Spotify

Unusable
by satkacity on 2021/01/17 19:12
I have no explanation how such poorly made app replaced google music. 1) App is not utilizing pre-downloaded songs, you have to select them. 2) YouTube videos playlists, really!? If I would like to watch something, I would use Netflix or even YouTube app itself. 3) Usability: does anyone even tried to use it personally? Like I still have no idea how to check the latest song or how to get rid integration with YouTube. It’s kind of work, so 2 stars, but lagging of basic functionality.
Offline Listening
by ThisPokeGame on 2021/01/17 18:48
What’s the point of downloading music when it won’t show your playlist when you have no internet? I’m confused to as why YouTube let’s you find your downloads but this app doesn’t?
I tried YouTube this is the best option for good music

Love the subscription, hate the app
by Hecolahbkee on 2021/01/17 15:21
I have whole playlists that I made where only 3 songs are “available” on the app. On the web, they are all there so why does is say “song is unavailable” in the app?? The songs ARE NOT unavailable, just unavailable through the app! Why? This makes it not worth the space it takes up on my phone. I’m not the only one with this problem so I don’t know why they won’t fix this or tell us why this is happening. I absolutely love my subscription and I love that I can make my own playlists...this is why I initially got a subscription...but if you can’t actually LISTEN to your playlists in the app, what is the point of the app at all? PLEASE ANSWER TO YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS BEFORE THEY LEAVE!

money.
by Oneandonly_OliviaFrederick on 2021/01/16 18:17
so basically this app is making you pay for: no ads and being able to connect you’re speakers and it’s hella annoying. don’t get me started on the prices please- it’s just annoying and they gotta stop asking for money.

Just one thing
by scrappyxd87 on 2021/01/16 04:30
I like pretty much everything about this app except for one small thing. I don’t like the fact that you can’t exit the app or turn off your phone without the music stopping. This can also take a huge toll on battery as well from the phone constantly being on rather than off with some background activity. If you could make it so that it’s possible to exit app/turn off phone and the music keeps playing that would be great thanks.
Not even a music app

by NjOlds on 2021/01/16 02:09
If they would just fix some of their issues I would 5 star them! 1.) Stop streaming music I’ve downloaded!!! Why stream it when it’s already in my device?!?! 2.) Stop searching for internet before allowing me to do anything on the app when opening it! 3.) Why can’t I give a song thumbs up/down when offline? 4.) What’s up with shuffle? Every time I shuffle a playlist I get the same shuffled order. Update 01/15/21 They have fixed some of the issues. Still needs some work but I think it’s way better than AM.
Wont let me leave the app
by NHsledin on 2021/01/16 01:37
It is great to listen to my music and have my play list but it is not letting me leave the app. It has happen to me before but it went away a I could leave the app and turn my phone and listen. I don’t know why but I have turn my phone completely off and it still is not working. But in all it is a great way to find songs that I like and listen to them.
Love it!

I enjoyed the app for a long time.But after the update I couldn’t do anything any more like close the app and still listen to the songs.I also didn’t have to have ads and now there are ads.The company wants 12.99 a month now and I’m not paying that much and I believe that the company is selfish.

My only complaint is that it takes forever to scroll through your songs because there’s no alphabet on the side.
Worst experience for your personal music collection
by Saamy2020 on 2021/01/15 05:37
Forced to use this compared to music app from below. This app is only for those willing to pay for their pricey subscription. They've made it impossible to play from your professional collection. Never trust an online service offering anything for free. Unfortunately monetizing by forcing people into a horrible experience is the way instead of building something users enjoy and hence decide to pay. I'm sure these decisions above the pay grade of the developers. Stay away for listening to your personal collection!!!
Glitching

Trying to switch from Spotify
by IgnatiusHS on 2021/01/14 15:40
Wanting to migrate from Spotify and what is really annoying is being bombarded with requests to submit what I like so it can build an algorithm for me. Spotify’s approach is all behind the scenes... I pick and play what I like, then it delivers fresh content based on my native choices.

needs gui overhaul
by midi fister on 2021/01/14 08:48
this app was clearly designed to force advertisements on you or force you into buying a subscription. the amount of repetitive steps to not have ads on music I already uploaded is absurd. even after already telling the app to search just my uploaded library it's easy to end up on stupid YouTube stuff. look I'm not paying $16+ a month for your music service when everyone else is $10 or less. I'll just throw a micro SD in a $30 android device and have all my music, ad free, always available.
NO SLEEP TIMER!!! nd a lot of bugs
by Apoorv Rana on 2021/01/14 08:13
A sleep timer is a must in any music player. It should be added as soon as possible. And my screen keeps on freezing nd glitching while browsing songs and artists. This all should be fixed.
Gotta change the station listening feature
by MartinbYang on 2021/01/14 02:41
As the title states, when I hit start station while I am playing one specific piece of music, on a desktop app or web browser version, it does not disturb the current playing song actually it just automatically generates a list songs to he played after this one finishes But in this app, it always restarts the current one which is a headache for me
Songs I have liked and now disliked won’t go away
by hyperion4113 on 2021/01/13 21:29
In my “Liked” playlist, there are still songs that I don’t want there. I tried disliking them, I tried removing them from my library, even deleting the app and they just won’t go away. Its super annoying whenever I play my likes that I have to remove them from the queue every single time I like the app but this bug or glitch is making it super annoying... Edit: just found out that songs that are liked on youtube but not YouTube music will stay in your likes even if you dislike them and remove them from library. If I dislike a song it should go away. It shouldn’t stay until I also dislike the song on YouTube. I get that you can select to make them not intertwined but if I dislike it on one platform it shouldn’t show there anymore
I Don’t Even Know
by ArjyAC on 2021/01/13 20:15
I’ve used this app for a very long time, originally everything was fine, but suddenly songs would no longer work in my downloads section, and then my 1000+ download playlist just disappeared. I was literally listening to it and it disappeared.

It has a plethora of music on it but it’s very annoying to move around in in google play it was simple and you could get to your songs easy in YouTube music it like a four button process
Good Music App
by Roy Boy 0074 on 2021/01/13 12:27
Integration of You Tube videos and a music library is great but I’d enjoy the app more if the music library was separated by music uploaded directly by the user or music saved from the app.
My favorite streaming service
by Zachh? on 2021/01/13 12:07
I believe that youtube music isnt the best streaming service, but it is the most for your buck. Not only do you get YouTube premium but you also get a music streaming service. I feel like the best part about YT music is that you can get leaks and unreleased songs at your leisure, unlike other populars like apple or Spotify.

by Paolaura on 2021/01/12 22:15
It has a variety of music and great if you want to use it at work on a browser. My only issue is using it with my Google Home Mini. Unlike Spotify and Deezer, it doesn't show the song that is playing on my speaker when I open the app from Google Home. I have to use Shazam to get the details of the song, so not always the best option to discover new music using Google.
I dont need your recommendation

Annoying
by fftyfgcvjfugychdtur on 2021/01/12 20:00
I don’t like that when it’s sorted by alphabet in your library you can’t skip to a certain letter in the alphabet, you ha e to scroll through the whole thing. And then when it’s on shuffle and you click the up arrow to pull up your queue, if you move your hand even slightly, the queue closes and you have to reopen it. You have to put your phone down for the queue to remain up. Whoever approved this app for release should probably rethink their career. I don’t know how you can go from such a functional app (google play) to this garbage
Great service, bad iOS app
by Mike3292 on 2021/01/12 17:37
I love the feature set and ability to leverage my listening history to find new music to listen to. Often I’ll just search for a song and let auto play take care of the rest, having an on-demand soundtrack created for me. I removed a stars for the app not caring at all about iOS design guidelines - it looks like they designed an Android app.
Discover New Music from the past
by Got Satisfaction on 2021/01/12 16:17
I’ve recently discovered the YouTube Music app. It’s like a best friend. Comfort Food for my musical appetite. And easily streaming to my Roku TVs with the AirPlay feature takes it to a higher level. I especially like all the new collaborations with musicians from their homes and from worldwide locations during this Pandemic time . I’m looking forward to the positive creations that have evolved from necessity during this tragic period of deadly sickness. Thanks YouTube Music. Safe wishes.

by KevinJones79 on 2021/01/12 14:39
I wish you could do the A/B loop a section. Most of you probably don’t know what that is. It’s where you hit a button at a point in a song, and hit it again and it loops that section. It’ll repeat 1:24 to 1:58 over and over if you select that section. That would be cool, especially because I’m a guitar teacher.
Switched from Apple Music
by Saint Valentine 1994 on 2021/01/12 13:29
Modern music access is less about whether I can ask Siri to play a specific song and more about if I can hear new talented people put together a banger of a melody and post it to YouTube without any sort of music industry red tape. It’s more satisfying to hear new talent emerge than it is to hear a mass produced version of the same song nine months later.

Before it used to crash and the music used to stop. But now it is just amazing. When you play an old music or any music it shows you more of the same year or genre. Listen music on Tejeda background. Getting the family pack is the best option. 6 accounts! My whole family lives it

The app is g r e a t, I didn’t like it when i got it after google music shut down but it’s honestly better! The problem is, let’s just say you shuffle and it’s greatly organized, and you leave it alone for some time, not shutting down the app but just going on like, tumblr, and then come back to it to see no music, like you don’t have the shuffled ver. Of the playlist, that’s my only complaint

I have only one complaint about Youtube Music. I think it is a great app and I understand it’s a newish app so there will be some bugs. Sometimes when I open the app, it thinks my phone is flipped sideways and it stays frozen on my phone that way and I can’t click anything. I just close the app and open it again and it works. Amazing app and I have a few suggestions. I wish you could customize your playlist covers with your own pictures, and I wish that there was a lyrics option for when you’re listening to the song. Once again, amazing app and I love Youtube Premium.

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....
So bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
I don’t even know where to start with just how buggy and unusable this app and YT Music is overall. It’s not a step down from Google Play - it’s ten steps down. GP worked flawlessly, you could edit metadata (like artwork), stream through your Sonos for FREE and it has/had a simple User interface. YTM has none of that and it’s simply inexcusable. All they had to do was rebrand GPM and call it a day. Instead, we get an app that is so frustrating to use. Plug it in CarPlay and you don’t get a “most recent” screen like every, single other music app gives you. You have to manually navigate to what you want. If you want to start up where you left off before, you have to use the app on the phone and make at least 3 clicks to get to your recent album/songs. It also doesn’t remember your playback settings. If you click on “repeat” for an album, it will usually stop by the second play. If you don’t have repeat on and you’re at the last song of an album, hitting the |> button won’t take you back to the first track. Again, that is just BASIC functionality. If you want to stream your library through your Sonia system? Well, with GP it was free. Now? You have to pay for the 9.99/mo upgrade fee for YTM “Premium.” No thanks, Google. You don’t take away a free service and give us an inferior one as a replacement and have the gall to charge people for it.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
I truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating.
Google Play Music converters will be highly dissatisfied
by KatxIsxBack on 2020/12/31 01:40
I have had nothing but complaints about this app since having to move here from Google Play. It's become such a chore to listen to my own music that it's completely put me off listening to it. I rarely use this app. I much prefer Pandora or other music apps at this point. I want to be able to pick up where I left off in a song/album/playlist, hours/days/weeks later like I was able to in GPM. I don't want ads to listen to my own music. I don't want your suggestions added to my music. I don't want to be asked to upgrade to premium. I just want to listen to MY MUSIC. I also don't understand why buffer times are so much worse on here than GPM. I didn't have any issues with listening to my songs. But on this app, it takes a few tried for a song to play. Like it can't decide to load the song or something. I'm not sure. But it's annoying having to try to get the song to play multiple times before it will actually play. And then in the middle of a playlist, the song stopping for the same issue. Again, I will reiterate none of these issues occurred on GPM. TL;DR: I miss Google Play Music.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it. This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about. Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
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 is my first review I’ve ever written on Apple
by LordBeard on 2020/09/20 13:28
This app...it’s a lot. I mean I was forced to come to this app. Visually, I love the interface over Google Music. Having the videos here are cool. The mixes are usually better than Google Music as well, but that’s where it ends. The force closing is tragic. If someone calls or you enter the app back quickly it will close the app. Unlike Google Music, it won’t even pick off where you left. Why are playlists not in alphabetical order...what in the crazy town of an idea was that. You can’t even search for your playlist, like you could on Google Music, without turning up a ton of other results and never yours. I mean these are like basic functions, I don’t ask for much, I ask for what i had to be what I had. This app was out months before y’all made us switch. So the basic functionality of Google music was just bypassed. I’m upset. I can’t even go back to Google Music. It’s like y’all are forcing me to go Apple Music but all of my downloads, about 10,000, are here. Sigh.
this app is great but
by Kenzie2004 on 2020/04/26 11:42
it could be better the “my mixtape” is just music that i went out of my way to find it music i have in my likes or downloads rarely is there new music in there that i haven't heard, along with that if my mixtape is supposed to be songs that i like and etc then don’t play different music at different times, in the morning it plays different music than in the afternoon and night which is okay but i like to hear everything and my morning music is the same as my night time and my afternoon music. Along with the play more music for me, if the new discover playlist or whatever it’s called is supposed to help me find new music it would be nice to make it more accurate I've never liked a song that played in that playlist and it’s not even the type of music i listen to and i’ll listen to anything. also it needs to be updated all the time not every Wednesday.
Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?
by IStoppingPowerI on 2018/06/02 01:12
(Updated On Exp) Starting to love this new look actually. I can see the songs I enjoy replaying come up well at the top section. What was great before was tapping a track that I’ll enjoy, and wondering - what would some remixes/covered/related tracks sound like. The older “more” button or what the current “i”/“Information” button had previously done this. It was awesome! I was hooked. I could find so many great songs from other artists/DJs and so on by finding a great hit, then tapping those buttons. Now those features aren’t to be found. I don’t feel confident paying because I can get the same great hits/music from streaming services that I’ve never tried before. I was a student for all the time I’ve used it (1.5 years) as well - so I really do love the app! It’s harsh pressing the info button and seeing nothing.

Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
It’s ok
by grizzlemynizzle on 2020/09/18 16:50
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t male a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered.
Meh
by furhdab on 2020/08/13 12:57
I love the amount of music available! I came from google play music so this was great! My quips though and I hope these are changes that come along: my library doesn’t give me the ability to choose a letter and then get taken to that area, I literally have to scroll to let’s say the H’s... which wouldn’t be bad if I didn’t have over 3000 songs in my library. You can’t change the song when your phone is locked, you have to go into the app to do that and pause it. Also when you go to an artist’s page and click a song by them, it doesn’t just play their next top song it goes to a different artist that is similar and starts playing a song by them. And every time I remove a song from my que, the app forces you back to the top of the list and then you have to scroll back down to where you were.
Can't customize anything
by killershadow115 on 2019/07/23 08:47
Alot of the recommended stations are just some main stream popular artist I never listen too. Let me add my own playlist or artist to my main menue play lists. Let me add or move wdgests around. And for crying out loud all the playlist have the same songs... Like if I click on a dubstep song or something why put something non related to dubstep there? Same with Nightcore or electro music.. let me make my experience with this app better by allowing me to change and move things around. I don't even scroll down because it's all garbage that I'll never click on. It's so sad that this app just get worse and worse. Now you added that song video thing when the old one worked perfectly fine. Now It randomly switches to video even if I selected song. I had a grate experience with this app for like 3 years but it's just getting worse and worse over that time
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
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
This app has a lot of potential and I’m not sure who decided to have it work the way it does but very simple things this app doesn’t offer is holding it back so much. For instance if I click add song to queue it makes so much more sense to add said song to a new list that starts after the current song playing not at the end of the shuffled playlist which can have hundreds of songs in it. Adding to a queue means you want to listen to it next or at the least soon. And why for the love of god is it almost the end of 2020 and this app doesn’t support the ability to remember the shuffle and replay settings when you come back to the app. I mean such simple things like this are littered through the app and are holding what has potential to be the best music streaming app back from the top. TL:DR Fire whoever your app dev is cause they are trash.
Saved items keep don’t update automatically
by Go MArk on 2019/09/24 20:44
Please, if I have a playlist synced in “saved items” it supposed to update (download automatically) all the new tunes which I put on the same name “online” playlist, but it never uptade itself, the only way is deleting the playlist (in saved offline) and download all the way AGAIN to get sometimes just 3 new tunes I must to download like 3 hundreds tunes in order to keeps up-to-date my offline same name synced playlist. I’m thinking to cancel my subscription only because this, it already bugging me a lot. Second thing the music VIDEOS in a playlist synced to play offline some of them just play the music sound, if I created a Music VIDEOS playlist it’s supposed to play ONLY VIDEOS in all of musics which i put on it, not just a few aleatory (p.s: off course I added the video option when I did the prior search). TKS
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.
One thing...
by Nymjy on 2020/10/20 22:19
So I really like this app because it almost reads your mind with the songs you want to listen to and I like that it gives you the option to watch the music video that goes with the song. The thing is (and I’ve seen complaints about this in other reviews), when you first get the app it asks it you want a free trial for premium. A lot of apps do this so I wasn’t too surprised but anyway I didn’t want to use mine, or at least not yet. So i just pressed the little “x” so I could go on without the trial but when I opened the app like a minute later it told me that I was currently in the free trial even though I’m 100% sure that I pressed the “x.” So ya, that’s pretty much my only complaint. Otherwise it’s a great app. Thanks for reading!
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!
Stoped working the same
by sanaya1201 on 2020/07/23 14:21
When I first downloaded the app I loved it because I could make my own playlists and it was always recommending me new music and artist and was always up to date when artist released new music, however I’ve had the app for a couple of years and I noticed that it started to say “song unavailable” and at first it was a couple of songs and I thought it got removed because some were songs I Hadn’t listened to in a while, however today I go on the app to listen to music and over half of my playlist with songs says song unavailable and when I tried to remove it and re- add the song it wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’m sad because I love this app, but I heard it happened to people with a premium account as well, so unfortunately I have to find another app to listen to music on in the meantime. Please fix this!
Good but...
by EdG70 on 2020/10/18 23:48
Been using the plataform for almost a year. It’s good but could have some improvements. Some of the songs are not recorded at the same volume so that creates a fluctuation when listening causing you to constantly adjust the volume. Second there’s no way (or at least I haven’t found it) to arrange the downloaded music into files in order to listen “offline”. Because you can have files, but they won’t play unless you are online. Offline you can arrange the songs in a “play next” but it won’t stay like that when you close the app. I would appreciate if someone tells me how to do this. Because I would like to have a “working out” file or “reading” file to listen offline.
I like the App, but...
by Rahee.khan on 2020/06/27 18:32
I often cast music from the App on my Sony TV. Whenever it is connected to the TV, overall App behavior becomes different, here are few examples: 1) When I play from my downloaded list, it does not follow the list itself. Depending on what song I select to play from the downloaded list, the queue becomes random with songs which is not in sync / order with my list 2) Moving a song up / down in the list also doesn’t work well, if I try to drag a song from one position to another, and I hold down for longer than 2-3 seconds, the drag auto releases, and scrolls back to where I originally started the drag from 3) Switching between Song / Video on the top bar is very slow, and sometimes reverses my choice, I have also seen a song being paused when attempting to switch to/from Song / Video Besides this or when just using the App without being connected to the TV, it works great, just wish the integration was smoother for my particular scenario Using iPhone 11 Pro and have auto-update on for Apps, and the TV is brand new Sony, so everything is relatively up to date on my side
Issue with Bluetooth Performance
by minceem on 2020/11/19 19:10
So overall the app works quite well, but there is a small bug when trying to play over Bluetooth or with Apple CarPlay. When selecting a song, the song title and artist shows, but the album doesn’t come up. The album title only displays if you change to the next song. Also, if you decide to start a song over, the song length will not reset, so if you start a 4 minute song over at the 3 minute mark, the clock will continue rolling, so you could be displaying 6 minutes of song time for a 4-minute song. These are obviously not issues affecting playback, but it’s enough for my OCD-self to notice. Should be an easy enough fix to implement.
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!
Not user friendly or reliable
by Atheimum on 2020/12/28 11:18
We use music in our kids rooms at night to help them sleep and muffle the household sounds. We loved google play. Unfortunately this program has been less than reliable or easy to use. It isn’t compatible with many older devices, so we were forced to upgrade the phones that sit on a shelf and play music. Stupid. The app stops playing randomly through the night. I have to restart the music, which is on repeat, but still stops. Its only played through 4-5 times since we were forced to switch. The repeat button is only available when the phone is in landscape, so when music cuts off i have to take the phone off the speaker, find repeat, then put it back all without waking a sleeping child. Not fun at 2am. These problems need to be fixed asap. Absolutely crap.
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..
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.
Overall, a great platform
by Maxwell Darwin on 2020/10/26 06:27
I really enjoy the selection of Music available. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the user interface can be a little confusing at times. No ability to shuffle or repeat while on a track and while using Apple CarPlay, no ability to like a track, which means if I want to remember a track for later, I have to look down at my phone. Actually less helpful than just putting a like button on the track image on Apple CarPlay. I also don’t always like the auto playlist selection. It seems the algorithm could use some work because it has a hard time matching the mood of my initial playlist or song(s).
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.
barely usable on iphone 8 running latest OS
by digitaldelete on 2020/08/27 22:43
this is the only music service i use but it’s honestly a shame at how bad it is. on my iphone 8 it is just miserably slow. if i want to hit next song, i’ll go and open the app and it’s still on the screen from 5 songs ago. i have to then wait for it to load to hit next. also you’ll get to use the media buttons on the lock screen like 20 percent of the time. same thing is you swipe up, good luck using media buttons to pause already playing music. lastly i absolutely hate its integration with my google home. again you’re stuck with the slowness of the app to get next or pause. now it’s even worse, if i want to change the playlist from my phone, i’ll go ahead and open the app which pauses the music...just from opening the app. the only fix is to hard close the app, reopen and reconnect to the home.
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.

Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user. Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music. another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.
Could have been better..

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..
