Randomly stopped working 🥴🥴🥴😭😭😭
Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this app
by dantee925 on 2021/07/26 15:41
The only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth.
What?
by why do you require a name on 2021/07/26 12:36
Was a big fan of Google Play Music.. never subscribe to Pandora, don’t use Apple Music or any other streaming app. This is the second music app I’ve used. For the most part I love this app. BUT AS OF LATE the next song DOESNT PLAY.. trying to troubleshoot it myself. But after a couple days.. I’m thinking of starting over w another streaming app?? Help!!
Shuffle might not be working right
by caribbean hustla on 2021/07/26 12:11
I have lots of songs like 1500 and I feel like when I play shuffle it plays the same 100 most recent or so
great until it stops working

Disappointing…
by soccer{Bella} on 2021/07/26 00:51
I’ve used this app for a while now but since this recent “update” my music doesn’t go to the next song on the playlist on it’s own anymore. Very annoying when I have to change every song myself.
Fine, but...
by Japtheknees on 2021/07/26 00:49
The app does its job. It plays music, you can search and download, it gives recommended music based on your past listens, etc. The biggest problem I have with the app, however, is that a lot of “music” doesn’t get recognized by YouTube Music. Sure all the big titles get to be played, but if you’re listening to something indie, or maybe a game/movie ost, there’s a good chance that YouTube won’t classify it as “music”. If it’s not “music,” it won’t play. There’s no way to add it as a song, or any way to appeal. From small videos like the entire Mario galaxy ost, to big titles like E ve’s dramaturgy which has over 100 million views, if it’s not mainstream, it’s got a good 10 percent chance of being unavailable. If you listen nothing but very mainstream music, this app is great.

It’s good but one flaw if you have premium
by xgxuzg on 2021/07/25 21:29
The flaw is that when downloading music idk how they sort it but some of the songs I recently downloaded go to the bottom and I have a lot of songs so to get to some of my recently added songs I have to scroll a bunch of times plz fix this it is extremely annoying
Bad Customer Service
by KissAlice on 2021/07/25 18:38
I do not appreciate how the songs do not automatically change to the next one anymore. I have been using this app for a while and don’t understand why this is happening. I have reached out twice app support and no one has been able to help me.
No search in offline mode

Just not as good as Google play music was
by mxmerce on 2021/07/25 18:00
Just not as good as Google play music was, there are several missing features but the one that bothers me the most is the option to ‘find similar artist’ there are many many more. I’ve been waiting as a subscriber for months for Google to act and fix things, but as usual Google has no customer support or customer input channels, they just tell us what we need/want. Hey Google just load the old Play Music app, do a feature comparsion and add the things that are missing, while you are at it fix the piss poor Apple car play integration, just fix this app already!
Well this review
by $|~\^^! on 2021/07/25 17:40
It works good. Sometimes it’s a little slow. It has all the music from regular YouTube. It works fast when clicking or tapping a song. I like this version of YouTube better!
Force closes
by hardybo25 on 2021/07/25 17:11
The app constantly force closes randomly multiple times while listening to music. It’s not a connection issue and I have the premium membership. Also if you simply pause a song for a few seconds the whole app closes
Great app but recent patch ruined it
by Thiccboichan on 2021/07/25 16:54
I have been using this app since 2016/2017 when it first released and I have never had issues with it until the most recent patch. It refuses to continue playing music after one song. I am not sure what the patch did but on the mobile app version anytime I want to listen to music in my playlist I have to actively go to the next song. I can no longer just sit there and let the music in my playlist play. Please fix your app.
Good
by Alec nardone on 2021/07/25 16:24
The app is great ive been using it since 2019 and I have the subscription but for some reason recently it’s been acting weird like I’ll play a song but then after that song it won’t play another song it just stops
The best investment for music
by gangstercali on 2021/07/25 15:57
I been a YouTube premium customer for 5 years now! I love how you can just listen to any song any artist on the YouTube music app and on the regular app! Also it gives you storage to download some music whenever your phone is out of service!
Love it!

Add a play/pause widget
by Apple man21 on 2021/07/25 03:48
At the moment everything about this app is great. It is the best streaming service out there. I’ve discovered tons of new artists thanks to the layout. The only thing is, please add a play/pause widget. That would make it a little more convenient than sliding down the screen or opening the app. Please do this!

by Pict Berserker on 2021/07/25 02:31
It’s a great app. I find most songs I’m looking for, but the reason it’s not a 5 is because I’m tired of having to reboot the app when I want to watch a video. Most of the time I use it, I have to reboot it, other then that, it’s a great app.

Infuriating
by yesimafan on 2021/07/24 19:13
This app is the worst of everything. I can’t believe they haven’t improved the interface or how this app interacts with your YT account. It’s almost sadistic. If I weren’t so addicted to my YT Premium for the YT features, I would have ditched this app AGES ago. Ages.
Very poor quality control
by Manjuraja on 2021/07/24 18:59
This app takes forever to load even offline mixes. This app gets super frustrating when working with Carplay. While on carplay, if you shuffle, there is NO way to unshuffle your playlist and go back to original order. How stupid is this? Even a Winamp player could do better than this. Learn from Winamp.

Yikes
by Kimberlybaker74 on 2021/07/24 16:12
It’s not nearly as good as google play was. Like night and day difference. It always stops while streaming in the car. Always. Will also stop on iPads. It’s not reliable. It’s distracting to try to get it to go while driving. You need to hit the ff button to get it to change songs, or else it will repeat the same song. Every update seems to make the ap worse. It will change from uploads to YouTube, I suppose to try to get ad revenue. But all it does is break it. Ours is the free version. I would never pay for this horrible Ap. Do not recommend. Very sad this replaced something that was amazing. It should have been the other way around.

Who needs radio.
by justinjoparker on 2021/07/24 12:47
The YouTube app is head and shoulders better than all of the subscription radio out there. Being able to find new music & listen to a full album (without ads) is easily worth the subscription price. I highly recommend it.

Auto Play No Longer Functional
by xRooster87 on 2021/07/23 23:46
I’m giving a higher rating because the app has always been great but I’m leaving a review because the latest update has caused my auto play to stop working, period. I know it’s the iPhone app because my desktop app works just fine. I’ve submitted feedback through the app with logs so I’m hoping for a patch to be released soon.

Make me move back to Spotify🤦🏾‍♂️
by Knowledge04 on 2021/07/22 20:51
Please hear my words! I love YouTube music for so many features that it offers…but the KEY reason I switched back from Spotify is that I have the ability to play music from multiple sources at once. I carry 2 phones…both mine. One apple, one Samsung. There are times where my daughter is listening to music in the car, and I have music going in my earpiece for myself. I FULLY understand this is a specific use case…but it is MY REAL WORLD USE CASE. This is a problem for Spotify as only one device can be used at a time…which made me come running back to YouTube music. And today on 7/22/21 I just received the error message that My account cannot be accessed because it is being used somewhere else. Please don’t make me go back.
UI is Absolutely atrocious!
by redhender1 on 2021/07/22 20:11
Instance if I’m searching for a song the search results should First be from the artist who wrote the song not everybody who’s covered the song the search results are a jumbled mess. Also when searching through my playlist or my liked songs there’s no way to use the search bar to search for songs in my playlists. This app is a jumbled mess!

No other music app is needed
by iPronox on 2021/07/22 15:33
It’s just so good. It can do everything I want relating to music. The mix’s are good and the algorithm kinda works. Problems I want to report: Stop playing and recommending to me the “Crossfire” song by Stephen. I’ve been clicking the dislike button for years now and you keep recommending it to me. STOP (Normally when you click dislike it gives you better recommendations and stops showing the that song. But I think the artist for Crossfire is paying you to keep recommending their song. Because this is getting on my nerves. STOP RECOMMENDING CROSSFIRE! Second issue: when the wifi is slow, Let me load my downloads faster. It takes for ever for the app to make sure I don’t have wifi before allowing me to see my Library>Downloads.

by Frankzhlew on 2021/07/22 02:33
After so many years, can we have some basic playlist editing features like SELECTING MULTIPLE SONGS or SORTING?!?!?!??!!?!?!?!?! These features are so basic that users started asking for them since the start of this sorry excuse you call a product. And great job ignoring us for years. I hope you are proud of yourselves: you took away a perfectly adequate product that is Google Play Music and incompetently gave us this pathetic "fancy" replacement with a stupid AI suggesting horrible songs and no adequate functionality to build our own playlists. You should thank the oligopoly that I still allow your undeserving staff to make money off of me. I'm paying mostly to get rid of youtube ads.

Doesn't play next track, always buggy
by rajohns on 2021/07/21 20:49
Music apps have one primary purpose - play music reliably. The latest update will not automatically play the next song on a playlist. Is that a joke?! What kind of test plan do these overpaid engineering teams use before releasing this junk? I've been tolerating all the bugs for a year because I have YouTube premium and this is included with that but enough is enough... going back to Spotify.
Algorithm is UNMATCHED
by joxsai on 2021/07/21 19:05
I own every streaming service I could get my hands on, I listen to music searching for new artist all day everyday. When it comes to algorithm and music dna, this streaming service blew a everyone else out the water! They’re doing an amazing job over there at youtube music !
It’s free for me and I still feel ripped off
by irish_deception on 2021/07/21 17:34
Honestly, I’ve had YouTube Red since the beginning. This YouTube music app was included for as long as I can remember. It’s awful. It’s the worst thing. Downloads sometimes won’t play offline because 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ It struggles to download songs in the first place. Just spinning for hours. Regardless of whether I’m on wifi, 5G, LTE, good service, poor service, doesn’t matter. Prepare to stop a download and restart it multiple times. The search function is next to useless, your custom playlists (of which I have seen 7 at a time) will practically all be based around the same three songs you listened too three months ago. The app constantly crashes and I have an iPhone 12 Pro. I want to scream at this app PLEASE JUST FUNCTION! I JUST WANT YOU TO FUNCTION! THATS IT! IM NOT ASKING FOR MUCH! PLAY MUSIC! STOP CRASHING! DOWNLOAD A SONG! PLEASE! It’s infuriating to deal with on a daily basis. Please for the love of god, charge me less for YouTube premium and take away this god awful “perk” so I can use that money to pay for a FUNCTIONING music app.
Buggy Bluetooth
by kmschwem on 2021/07/21 16:29
The app has some bugs with Bluetooth. Play music, get a ring notification and open it which switches audio, come back to YT Music and there’s no sound. You have to kill the app and restart. Sony and Apple headphones both have the problem but not the iPhone speaker. Aside from bugs I just wish the app was better for music discovery. The mixes can be pretty off target. The selection is pretty good though.
Paywalling iOS features
by Angel Demirev on 2021/07/21 15:35
Rating 1-star because this app takes iOS features and places them behind a paywall. I was listening to the free tier, then glanced at my Apple Watch only to see “Upgrade to Music Premium to access this feature”. It’s fine if you don’t want to show music controls on the watch for non-subscribers (though that’s an odd thing to hold back), but don’t fill my watch screen with a request to subscribe. Behave like the main YouTube app and don’t touch my watch at all if you won’t show me music controls.
Worst mainstream music app ever
by Kcdang on 2021/07/21 14:54
Come on YouTube, how can you release something so buggy? It doesn’t even the play the next song in my playlist anymore. Not to mention, their “mixtape” algorithm is probably the worst I’ve ever seen. Recommends me songs I’d never listen to. “Tuning your recommendations” nah, your disliked songs will still appear. Great job on this garbage app YT.

Let me start out by saying, this app is really great! Unlike all the other music apps, you can see music from creators who have made channels, opening up more opportunity to discover newer more unheard of artists! They have a great algorithm for finding what you like. I highly recommend!
It’s fine. Not great.
by Jeremy77777 on 2021/07/21 04:59
The ability to manage playlists is lacking. The amount of available music isn’t as vast as the most popular ones. Lots of songs I add to playlists disappear. Very frustrating.
Worst Music Streaming App
by FizzyWaterAllie on 2021/07/21 02:41
(I have YouTube Premium) There are several reasons why this is the worst music streaming app. First off all I used YouTube music for a period over about 8 months. I have since changed to Spotify which I should have done in the the first place. 1. The audio quality on Spotify is so much better, and I had the highest quality I could get downloaded to my phone with YT Music. It’s just not great. 2. All my music was downloaded to my phone. Despite this, YT Music would constantly stop my music from playing in places without internet trying to load album covers unless I specifically chose the playlist from the downloads page. This is dumb and disrupted my experience in a major way. 3. Another huge gripe I had with YT Music was just the constant bugginess. If I set a playlist to shuffle it would stop playing at random times and say that I was on the last song, forcing me to shuffle the playlist again. This happened mostly when I wanted to continue playing the playlist after a couple hours or more of it being paused, but could also happen when I first shuffled the playlist. I have never had this problem with any other music app. There were many other small annoyances I had with YT Music that just caused me to get fed up. The app is just terrible and any other streaming service is just so much better.
Stops after 1 song
by Jmeyers55 on 2021/07/20 22:58
Works fine for a few weeks. All of a sudden it stops playback after 1 song. And I’m a premium member. Please fix this!!!
Love the music

in desperate need of a re-design
by bleepbloop8202 on 2021/07/20 20:04
y’all really need to sit down with real users and have a talk with your programmers…. a few things i’ve noticed personally: -algorithm for new music is pretty bad i don’t like the songs i’m recommended based on what i listen to -all my downloads randomly deleted!! so annoying 🙄 -when i’m in my downloads or a playlist why can’t i go to a specific songs radio… i have to go to search and find the song i’m listening to currently and click go to radio SOOOO ANOOYINGGGG so much annoying stuff… feel free to contact me i will help u to improve your app for FREE
Great app for music
by linalk1 on 2021/07/20 18:47
Easy access to my YouTube music list & easy to add new song too
Let me count the ways
by C0ntesauce on 2021/07/20 18:32
I hate this app so much. Let me count the ways. 1. You constantly tell me there’s no internet when I have full bars and everything else on my phone works. I have to restart my phone to get it to work again. 2. I have to push play after. Every. Single. Song. Playlist? Yep. Radio? Yep. Shuffle? Yep. I have a tape player, mini disk, and CD player that don’t have this issue from two decades ago. 3. Swipe to next song. Period. Why do I have to find your little next button when I’m driving? 4. Your add to playlist UI is garbage. Add to playlist should be one of the very top options. Not someplace I have to scroll down to find. 5. Why do I not have an easy way to remove, or thumbs down your horrendous recommendations? 6. Why can’t I rearrange the homepage UI? I have to see all your stuff before I get to mine? I suppose yea it’s your service and I get what I pay for but I still hate it. I love Spotify, but my family has been on YouTube since it was an actual good service (google play music), so there’s no reason to pay for multiple services that are supposed to do the same thing. Sighhhhhh
Crashes all the time
by shanecard on 2021/07/20 16:58
It was great when it was Google music, since the change it has had nothing but problems. Can’t even easily remove duplicate songs on your playlists
A little change if possible.
by Bigmarc420 on 2021/07/20 14:01
Ok I love this app just a suggestion for it tho. When u search you should be able to hit the microphone and it should listen to the music and find it like how google does. Just a thought.
Command Perspective
by Command2021 on 2021/07/20 12:44
Youtube music is intuitive and mutable without aggressively berating the user with misleading or tiresome ads. Youtube respects the individual in allowing non oppressive preferences to mold the users engagement with the app. Great work. Command.
Issues with AirPods
by grghgrgh on 2021/07/20 12:33
My last review got deleted somehow. Ever since iOS 14.5 there has been an issue with resuming music on AirPods. If I take out an AirPod it pauses the music fine. Put it back in, there is a 5-8 second delay to when music plays. The scrub bar moves but I don’t get any sound. Only an issue with this app. Still a problem through the several app updates since then, still an issue on 14.6. I’ve reconnected my AirPods, tried playing from the app, the widget, clicking the button on my AirPods, nothing gets this one app to not have the delay. Not an issue with my AirPods or phone since even my Plexamp app plays flawlessly. Maybe reach out to them to see how to fix it. Or maybe you guys are too big to care anymore. 6/8/21 update: still an issue. 6/16/21 update: still an issue. 6/22/22 update: still broken. Feedback submitted in the app at least twice, no response. Great experience when issues are ignored like this. 6/29/21 update: still a problem. Now spread to the YouTube app as well. Guys, you’re making things worse. 7/8 update: surprisingly still broken. 7/20 update: still not fixed. I’ve given up. Canceling my subscription, this is getting too irritating. I’ve left this review updated every app update, sent feedback from the app several times, and I’m just being ignored. Even a “we got it, working on it” would be nice. But here we are. They don’t want to fix my issue, I don’t want to give them my money. Not a bad thing to have less google in your life anyway. And it’s pretty sad that the “mighty” google is can’t fix an issue that indie developers don’t even have
Review
by ..,?echef on 2021/07/20 11:43
It’s a nice app but there are some minor issues that should be worked on.. the music recommendations are good but could be better .. most of the recommendations are songs I’ve already heard before..so it’s like recycling my listening history.. when removing a song from downloads , it automatically takes me back to the top which can be frustrating if you have to delete a lot of songs
Not useable
by user1737639 on 2021/07/20 07:09
This interface is horrible! You can’t make selections from your playlist because it minimizes on its own. Trying to select a song is a chore and chances are you’ll select the wrong one because your playlists always minimizes. You might as well just search for the song you want to hear but pray to god you’re not moving while you’re doing it. I’ve never had an be so unusable on the move. I don’t know how many times it’s made me want to quit a workout. Not to mention some genius thought they should play ads in the middle of a song, I guess YouTube has to make money somehow because I don’t know anyone who would pay for this trash.
Can’t download
by adore the art style on 2021/07/20 06:45

Surprisingly bad
by Prester Dave on 2021/07/20 04:36
I was a google play user/subscriber, and while it wasn’t perfect, suffering recurring playback glitches on my tablet, it was still usable. This app is a significant step back. I am old school, I suppose, and want to download and listen to albums. But, so many missing features! I can’t play a playlist when not on wifi. I can’t add a downloaded album to a playlist (a feature recently removed!) I can’t sort the download list by artist/release date/download date/most recently played/play count. Only Album Name. I can’t make a playlist out of the current queue. I don’t get why these features are missing, since many where available on play music. Google needs a few music fans on the app team, just to design the system and how it’s used, not just coders.
Seriously?

I can’t believe you need to pay just to listen to music with your phone off! very useless
Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improve
by WITH LOVE... on 2020/07/14 01:42
I’m super happy they finally allowed the transfer of our Google Play music playlists, but using this as my main music app is going to need a few improvements if I’m being honest. First, the app can be glitchy when loading info the current song playing, and sometimes I have to close the app fully to get it to work. Secondly, if you are going to have a feature of having lyrics built into the app, please update it to where you know any song made within the last 30-40 years at the minimum will load no matter the genre or artist, no matter how popular or not the song is (in it’s current state it feels like a beta rather than a fully released music app.) I enjoy it overall but am looking forward to improvements moving forward.
So bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
I don’t even know where to start with just how buggy and unusable this app and YT Music is overall. It’s not a step down from Google Play - it’s ten steps down. GP worked flawlessly, you could edit metadata (like artwork), stream through your Sonos for FREE and it has/had a simple User interface. YTM has none of that and it’s simply inexcusable. All they had to do was rebrand GPM and call it a day. Instead, we get an app that is so frustrating to use. Plug it in CarPlay and you don’t get a “most recent” screen like every, single other music app gives you. You have to manually navigate to what you want. If you want to start up where you left off before, you have to use the app on the phone and make at least 3 clicks to get to your recent album/songs. It also doesn’t remember your playback settings. If you click on “repeat” for an album, it will usually stop by the second play. If you don’t have repeat on and you’re at the last song of an album, hitting the |> button won’t take you back to the first track. Again, that is just BASIC functionality. If you want to stream your library through your Sonia system? Well, with GP it was free. Now? You have to pay for the 9.99/mo upgrade fee for YTM “Premium.” No thanks, Google. You don’t take away a free service and give us an inferior one as a replacement and have the gall to charge people for it.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
I truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating.
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
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.
Poor substitute
by NathanFilz on 2021/03/13 06:46
The company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed. Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play. Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.
Forget previous review...I love this app
by nikanico on 2020/02/24 22:24
Update: I figured I’d leave the prior review there to show how stupid I am... just don’t touch the screen so hard and those songs will move all over the place with incredible ease. I figured it out by accident.... moron moment over... love this app now more than ever... love love love Look, I love this service because it has literally every song/cover/live version etc. of everything.... however, I spend all day making these playlists that I cannot rearrange!!!!! I click edit, the equal sign (I don’t know what else to call it) appears on the left and I have to touch that thing like 87 times before I can get it just right so the stupid menu doesn’t come up instead. I HATE IT. It is literally so frustrating it makes me not even want to use the app. I’ve had to resort to deleting things that I want to be at the end of the playlist and then adding them again just to get them to where I want. Please please please fix this or make it easier or bigger or something. It’s literally a crapshoot on whether I can touch it just right so I can pull it up or down in the playlist. I can’t be the only one this annoys. That would shock me to the core....
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?
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.
Why did we get a step down?!
by rdzielinski on 2021/05/18 05:17
I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
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.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
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.
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..
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15
It is awesome to pick out songs that take me back to the high school days of the seventies star. Football player and rock guitar was progressing rapidly into the mind blowing riffs we rock and rollers know and love I have many of the best guitar in the world in my head thanks to you tube music I can tell the guitar hero from the first phrase of there guitar I’m 60 now and the music of today well I know they are artists and all they never be a Eddie or Alex or jimi h jimmy thanks to you tube music they will live in my world forever long live classic rock thank you Eddie who is Van Halen and Alex you should all know in my opinion the greatest guitar player ever who he is you tube music keeps these guys will captivate-generations to come thx Tom c
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.

Love everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server [400]“. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list.
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
Queue/Songs no longer available
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/07/15 12:47
The add to queue doesn’t seem to work properly or maybe how you would think it would work. It seems like if you start playing a playlist, and you queue a song it goes to the very end of when the entire playlist is played. I would have thought it would queue the songs to play next. You could do this by adding multiple songs with the “play next” option, but then you need to know the reverse order you want the songs to play. Also there is no swipe control to queue songs. I’m not entirely sure what is going on, but occasionally songs in my playlist become unavailable. It doesn’t make sense because you can go look up the same song and find it available in search. What is causing this?
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!
Could be better
by Momo Sakura on 2021/06/08 18:02
This is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :)
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.
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.
Needs improving
by WD4L1988 on 2021/05/07 09:23
I don’t understand why we can add full albums to our library, but we can’t delete individual songs from albums within the library. That makes no sense at all. I don’t always like full albums and deleting songs is much easier than skipping them every time they play. Also the alphabet off to the side in the library would be helpful when searching for songs. And why don’t we have the option to put songs by artists in alphabetical order when we click their name in our library? Maybe everyone doesn’t want songs in order by album. I love the amount of music on the app and how organized things are, but these are major issues that are turn offs. If it weren’t for the fact that I can get a lot of music on this app that isn’t available elsewhere I would’ve been cancelled my subscription. Please fix this ASAP.
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
This app has a lot of potential and I’m not sure who decided to have it work the way it does but very simple things this app doesn’t offer is holding it back so much. For instance if I click add song to queue it makes so much more sense to add said song to a new list that starts after the current song playing not at the end of the shuffled playlist which can have hundreds of songs in it. Adding to a queue means you want to listen to it next or at the least soon. And why for the love of god is it almost the end of 2020 and this app doesn’t support the ability to remember the shuffle and replay settings when you come back to the app. I mean such simple things like this are littered through the app and are holding what has potential to be the best music streaming app back from the top. TL:DR Fire whoever your app dev is cause they are trash.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
I really enjoyed this app. . . Up until recently. See, with the past few updates, it getting harder and harder to find the music I like. It recommends different versions of a song I like, but I don’t want different versions, I just want to listen to the song the way I like it. Be it faster tempo or otherwise. Also, first page I see when I enter the app now offers less of the things I’m interested in. While my favorite songs are cramped in a corner all together, a bunch of things I don’t care about take up the entire screen. I don’t want to listen to ‘New Releases’ or ‘Hottest Country Albums’ because that’s NOT WHAT I LIKE. The music I want is shoved in a corner under ‘your favorites’. SURE, those are TOTALLY my favorites and not just DIFFERENT THINGS ENTIRELY. I don’t even know what half of the stuff recommended to me are! I had high hopes for these few big updates, but all I see is failure to pander towards the audience. Please, staff. I know there is a low chance of someone reading this, especially since it’s a negative review. Please give me back the app that I loved! Instead of just calling random music you’ve thrown at me ‘personalized’, just go back to the way you were. This isn’t difficult. All you have to do is take away the new bad stuff, and replace it with the old good stuff. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
Downloads are a pain
by RettopMK on 2021/01/27 18:08
A decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple.
Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
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...
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.
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!
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.
Worst replacement of play music
by joshin'ron on 2021/05/25 16:35
I hate the app. I have bought hundreds of dollars worth of music and collected them in my play account. Now with the migration to YTM, I am consistently encouraged to buy a subscription. Even when listening to music I already bought, when relaunching the app, YTM will have the last song ginned up ready for me to play. When I press play it launches an ad and then plays the song from their service and not my library. No. I bought the music so I could listen to it. I don’t want a subscription. When I go to my library, the developers couldn’t have made a longer path to my purchased music. I am constantly bombarded with the subliminal message that I need to subscribe. I hate this app. I gave it a good try, but only detest it more with every use. I’m going to download all my purchased music from Google and deleting YTM and Google from my life.
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!
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

Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this app
by dantee925 on 2021/07/26 15:41
The only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth.
What?
by why do you require a name on 2021/07/26 12:36
Was a big fan of Google Play Music.. never subscribe to Pandora, don’t use Apple Music or any other streaming app. This is the second music app I’ve used. For the most part I love this app. BUT AS OF LATE the next song DOESNT PLAY.. trying to troubleshoot it myself. But after a couple days.. I’m thinking of starting over w another streaming app?? Help!!

I have lots of songs like 1500 and I feel like when I play shuffle it plays the same 100 most recent or so
great until it stops working
by land brunch on 2021/07/26 10:05
autoplay stopped working with the new update release. real pain if you enjoy listening to albums/playlists in one sitting
I like it and when I have premium

It uh plays when I am not on the pog app and it haves a lot of cool song it has TOMMYINNT IS THAT COOL!?
Disappointing…
by soccer{Bella} on 2021/07/26 00:51
I’ve used this app for a while now but since this recent “update” my music doesn’t go to the next song on the playlist on it’s own anymore. Very annoying when I have to change every song myself.
Fine, but...
by Japtheknees on 2021/07/26 00:49
The app does its job. It plays music, you can search and download, it gives recommended music based on your past listens, etc. The biggest problem I have with the app, however, is that a lot of “music” doesn’t get recognized by YouTube Music. Sure all the big titles get to be played, but if you’re listening to something indie, or maybe a game/movie ost, there’s a good chance that YouTube won’t classify it as “music”. If it’s not “music,” it won’t play. There’s no way to add it as a song, or any way to appeal. From small videos like the entire Mario galaxy ost, to big titles like E ve’s dramaturgy which has over 100 million views, if it’s not mainstream, it’s got a good 10 percent chance of being unavailable. If you listen nothing but very mainstream music, this app is great.

July 25, 2021 I love the access that it gives me to music and videos but their shuffle leaves a lot to be desired it doesn’t work it’s broken. If in the next week they do not fix their shuffle problems I am canceling my subscription.

It’s good but one flaw if you have premium
by xgxuzg on 2021/07/25 21:29
The flaw is that when downloading music idk how they sort it but some of the songs I recently downloaded go to the bottom and I have a lot of songs so to get to some of my recently added songs I have to scroll a bunch of times plz fix this it is extremely annoying
Bad Customer Service
by KissAlice on 2021/07/25 18:38
I do not appreciate how the songs do not automatically change to the next one anymore. I have been using this app for a while and don’t understand why this is happening. I have reached out twice app support and no one has been able to help me.
No search in offline mode
by DCVC88 on 2021/07/25 18:21
It doesn’t have search in offline mode. Need to do it manually which is quite irritating. Didn’t expect this from google
Just not as good as Google play music was
by mxmerce on 2021/07/25 18:00
Just not as good as Google play music was, there are several missing features but the one that bothers me the most is the option to ‘find similar artist’ there are many many more. I’ve been waiting as a subscriber for months for Google to act and fix things, but as usual Google has no customer support or customer input channels, they just tell us what we need/want. Hey Google just load the old Play Music app, do a feature comparsion and add the things that are missing, while you are at it fix the piss poor Apple car play integration, just fix this app already!
Well this review
by $|~\^^! on 2021/07/25 17:40
It works good. Sometimes it’s a little slow. It has all the music from regular YouTube. It works fast when clicking or tapping a song. I like this version of YouTube better!
Force closes
by hardybo25 on 2021/07/25 17:11
The app constantly force closes randomly multiple times while listening to music. It’s not a connection issue and I have the premium membership. Also if you simply pause a song for a few seconds the whole app closes
Great app but recent patch ruined it
by Thiccboichan on 2021/07/25 16:54
I have been using this app since 2016/2017 when it first released and I have never had issues with it until the most recent patch. It refuses to continue playing music after one song. I am not sure what the patch did but on the mobile app version anytime I want to listen to music in my playlist I have to actively go to the next song. I can no longer just sit there and let the music in my playlist play. Please fix your app.
Good
by Alec nardone on 2021/07/25 16:24
The app is great ive been using it since 2019 and I have the subscription but for some reason recently it’s been acting weird like I’ll play a song but then after that song it won’t play another song it just stops
The best investment for music
by gangstercali on 2021/07/25 15:57
I been a YouTube premium customer for 5 years now! I love how you can just listen to any song any artist on the YouTube music app and on the regular app! Also it gives you storage to download some music whenever your phone is out of service!
Love it!

Add a play/pause widget
by Apple man21 on 2021/07/25 03:48
At the moment everything about this app is great. It is the best streaming service out there. I’ve discovered tons of new artists thanks to the layout. The only thing is, please add a play/pause widget. That would make it a little more convenient than sliding down the screen or opening the app. Please do this!

It’s a great app. I find most songs I’m looking for, but the reason it’s not a 5 is because I’m tired of having to reboot the app when I want to watch a video. Most of the time I use it, I have to reboot it, other then that, it’s a great app.

Infuriating
by yesimafan on 2021/07/24 19:13
This app is the worst of everything. I can’t believe they haven’t improved the interface or how this app interacts with your YT account. It’s almost sadistic. If I weren’t so addicted to my YT Premium for the YT features, I would have ditched this app AGES ago. Ages.
Very poor quality control
by Manjuraja on 2021/07/24 18:59
This app takes forever to load even offline mixes. This app gets super frustrating when working with Carplay. While on carplay, if you shuffle, there is NO way to unshuffle your playlist and go back to original order. How stupid is this? Even a Winamp player could do better than this. Learn from Winamp.

Yikes
by Kimberlybaker74 on 2021/07/24 16:12
It’s not nearly as good as google play was. Like night and day difference. It always stops while streaming in the car. Always. Will also stop on iPads. It’s not reliable. It’s distracting to try to get it to go while driving. You need to hit the ff button to get it to change songs, or else it will repeat the same song. Every update seems to make the ap worse. It will change from uploads to YouTube, I suppose to try to get ad revenue. But all it does is break it. Ours is the free version. I would never pay for this horrible Ap. Do not recommend. Very sad this replaced something that was amazing. It should have been the other way around.

Who needs radio.
by justinjoparker on 2021/07/24 12:47
The YouTube app is head and shoulders better than all of the subscription radio out there. Being able to find new music & listen to a full album (without ads) is easily worth the subscription price. I highly recommend it.

Auto Play No Longer Functional

I’m giving a higher rating because the app has always been great but I’m leaving a review because the latest update has caused my auto play to stop working, period. I know it’s the iPhone app because my desktop app works just fine. I’ve submitted feedback through the app with logs so I’m hoping for a patch to be released soon.

Make me move back to Spotify🤦🏾‍♂️
by Knowledge04 on 2021/07/22 20:51
Please hear my words! I love YouTube music for so many features that it offers…but the KEY reason I switched back from Spotify is that I have the ability to play music from multiple sources at once. I carry 2 phones…both mine. One apple, one Samsung. There are times where my daughter is listening to music in the car, and I have music going in my earpiece for myself. I FULLY understand this is a specific use case…but it is MY REAL WORLD USE CASE. This is a problem for Spotify as only one device can be used at a time…which made me come running back to YouTube music. And today on 7/22/21 I just received the error message that My account cannot be accessed because it is being used somewhere else. Please don’t make me go back.
UI is Absolutely atrocious!
by redhender1 on 2021/07/22 20:11
Instance if I’m searching for a song the search results should First be from the artist who wrote the song not everybody who’s covered the song the search results are a jumbled mess. Also when searching through my playlist or my liked songs there’s no way to use the search bar to search for songs in my playlists. This app is a jumbled mess!

by iPronox on 2021/07/22 15:33
It’s just so good. It can do everything I want relating to music. The mix’s are good and the algorithm kinda works. Problems I want to report: Stop playing and recommending to me the “Crossfire” song by Stephen. I’ve been clicking the dislike button for years now and you keep recommending it to me. STOP (Normally when you click dislike it gives you better recommendations and stops showing the that song. But I think the artist for Crossfire is paying you to keep recommending their song. Because this is getting on my nerves. STOP RECOMMENDING CROSSFIRE! Second issue: when the wifi is slow, Let me load my downloads faster. It takes for ever for the app to make sure I don’t have wifi before allowing me to see my Library>Downloads.

After so many years, can we have some basic playlist editing features like SELECTING MULTIPLE SONGS or SORTING?!?!?!??!!?!?!?!?! These features are so basic that users started asking for them since the start of this sorry excuse you call a product. And great job ignoring us for years. I hope you are proud of yourselves: you took away a perfectly adequate product that is Google Play Music and incompetently gave us this pathetic "fancy" replacement with a stupid AI suggesting horrible songs and no adequate functionality to build our own playlists. You should thank the oligopoly that I still allow your undeserving staff to make money off of me. I'm paying mostly to get rid of youtube ads.

Doesn't play next track, always buggy
by rajohns on 2021/07/21 20:49
Music apps have one primary purpose - play music reliably. The latest update will not automatically play the next song on a playlist. Is that a joke?! What kind of test plan do these overpaid engineering teams use before releasing this junk? I've been tolerating all the bugs for a year because I have YouTube premium and this is included with that but enough is enough... going back to Spotify.
Algorithm is UNMATCHED
by joxsai on 2021/07/21 19:05
I own every streaming service I could get my hands on, I listen to music searching for new artist all day everyday. When it comes to algorithm and music dna, this streaming service blew a everyone else out the water! They’re doing an amazing job over there at youtube music !
It’s free for me and I still feel ripped off
by irish_deception on 2021/07/21 17:34
Honestly, I’ve had YouTube Red since the beginning. This YouTube music app was included for as long as I can remember. It’s awful. It’s the worst thing. Downloads sometimes won’t play offline because 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ It struggles to download songs in the first place. Just spinning for hours. Regardless of whether I’m on wifi, 5G, LTE, good service, poor service, doesn’t matter. Prepare to stop a download and restart it multiple times. The search function is next to useless, your custom playlists (of which I have seen 7 at a time) will practically all be based around the same three songs you listened too three months ago. The app constantly crashes and I have an iPhone 12 Pro. I want to scream at this app PLEASE JUST FUNCTION! I JUST WANT YOU TO FUNCTION! THATS IT! IM NOT ASKING FOR MUCH! PLAY MUSIC! STOP CRASHING! DOWNLOAD A SONG! PLEASE! It’s infuriating to deal with on a daily basis. Please for the love of god, charge me less for YouTube premium and take away this god awful “perk” so I can use that money to pay for a FUNCTIONING music app.
Buggy Bluetooth
by kmschwem on 2021/07/21 16:29
The app has some bugs with Bluetooth. Play music, get a ring notification and open it which switches audio, come back to YT Music and there’s no sound. You have to kill the app and restart. Sony and Apple headphones both have the problem but not the iPhone speaker. Aside from bugs I just wish the app was better for music discovery. The mixes can be pretty off target. The selection is pretty good though.
Paywalling iOS features
by Angel Demirev on 2021/07/21 15:35
Rating 1-star because this app takes iOS features and places them behind a paywall. I was listening to the free tier, then glanced at my Apple Watch only to see “Upgrade to Music Premium to access this feature”. It’s fine if you don’t want to show music controls on the watch for non-subscribers (though that’s an odd thing to hold back), but don’t fill my watch screen with a request to subscribe. Behave like the main YouTube app and don’t touch my watch at all if you won’t show me music controls.
Worst mainstream music app ever
by Kcdang on 2021/07/21 14:54
Come on YouTube, how can you release something so buggy? It doesn’t even the play the next song in my playlist anymore. Not to mention, their “mixtape” algorithm is probably the worst I’ve ever seen. Recommends me songs I’d never listen to. “Tuning your recommendations” nah, your disliked songs will still appear. Great job on this garbage app YT.

by nemo is epic as heck on 2021/07/21 05:15
Let me start out by saying, this app is really great! Unlike all the other music apps, you can see music from creators who have made channels, opening up more opportunity to discover newer more unheard of artists! They have a great algorithm for finding what you like. I highly recommend!
It’s fine. Not great.
by Jeremy77777 on 2021/07/21 04:59
The ability to manage playlists is lacking. The amount of available music isn’t as vast as the most popular ones. Lots of songs I add to playlists disappear. Very frustrating.
Worst Music Streaming App
by FizzyWaterAllie on 2021/07/21 02:41
(I have YouTube Premium) There are several reasons why this is the worst music streaming app. First off all I used YouTube music for a period over about 8 months. I have since changed to Spotify which I should have done in the the first place. 1. The audio quality on Spotify is so much better, and I had the highest quality I could get downloaded to my phone with YT Music. It’s just not great. 2. All my music was downloaded to my phone. Despite this, YT Music would constantly stop my music from playing in places without internet trying to load album covers unless I specifically chose the playlist from the downloads page. This is dumb and disrupted my experience in a major way. 3. Another huge gripe I had with YT Music was just the constant bugginess. If I set a playlist to shuffle it would stop playing at random times and say that I was on the last song, forcing me to shuffle the playlist again. This happened mostly when I wanted to continue playing the playlist after a couple hours or more of it being paused, but could also happen when I first shuffled the playlist. I have never had this problem with any other music app. There were many other small annoyances I had with YT Music that just caused me to get fed up. The app is just terrible and any other streaming service is just so much better.

Great app for music
by linalk1 on 2021/07/20 18:47
Easy access to my YouTube music list & easy to add new song too
Let me count the ways
by C0ntesauce on 2021/07/20 18:32
I hate this app so much. Let me count the ways. 1. You constantly tell me there’s no internet when I have full bars and everything else on my phone works. I have to restart my phone to get it to work again. 2. I have to push play after. Every. Single. Song. Playlist? Yep. Radio? Yep. Shuffle? Yep. I have a tape player, mini disk, and CD player that don’t have this issue from two decades ago. 3. Swipe to next song. Period. Why do I have to find your little next button when I’m driving? 4. Your add to playlist UI is garbage. Add to playlist should be one of the very top options. Not someplace I have to scroll down to find. 5. Why do I not have an easy way to remove, or thumbs down your horrendous recommendations? 6. Why can’t I rearrange the homepage UI? I have to see all your stuff before I get to mine? I suppose yea it’s your service and I get what I pay for but I still hate it. I love Spotify, but my family has been on YouTube since it was an actual good service (google play music), so there’s no reason to pay for multiple services that are supposed to do the same thing. Sighhhhhh
Crashes all the time
by shanecard on 2021/07/20 16:58
It was great when it was Google music, since the change it has had nothing but problems. Can’t even easily remove duplicate songs on your playlists
A little change if possible.
by Bigmarc420 on 2021/07/20 14:01
Ok I love this app just a suggestion for it tho. When u search you should be able to hit the microphone and it should listen to the music and find it like how google does. Just a thought.
Command Perspective
by Command2021 on 2021/07/20 12:44
Youtube music is intuitive and mutable without aggressively berating the user with misleading or tiresome ads. Youtube respects the individual in allowing non oppressive preferences to mold the users engagement with the app. Great work. Command.

My last review got deleted somehow. Ever since iOS 14.5 there has been an issue with resuming music on AirPods. If I take out an AirPod it pauses the music fine. Put it back in, there is a 5-8 second delay to when music plays. The scrub bar moves but I don’t get any sound. Only an issue with this app. Still a problem through the several app updates since then, still an issue on 14.6. I’ve reconnected my AirPods, tried playing from the app, the widget, clicking the button on my AirPods, nothing gets this one app to not have the delay. Not an issue with my AirPods or phone since even my Plexamp app plays flawlessly. Maybe reach out to them to see how to fix it. Or maybe you guys are too big to care anymore. 6/8/21 update: still an issue. 6/16/21 update: still an issue. 6/22/22 update: still broken. Feedback submitted in the app at least twice, no response. Great experience when issues are ignored like this. 6/29/21 update: still a problem. Now spread to the YouTube app as well. Guys, you’re making things worse. 7/8 update: surprisingly still broken. 7/20 update: still not fixed. I’ve given up. Canceling my subscription, this is getting too irritating. I’ve left this review updated every app update, sent feedback from the app several times, and I’m just being ignored. Even a “we got it, working on it” would be nice. But here we are. They don’t want to fix my issue, I don’t want to give them my money. Not a bad thing to have less google in your life anyway. And it’s pretty sad that the “mighty” google is can’t fix an issue that indie developers don’t even have

It’s a nice app but there are some minor issues that should be worked on.. the music recommendations are good but could be better .. most of the recommendations are songs I’ve already heard before..so it’s like recycling my listening history.. when removing a song from downloads , it automatically takes me back to the top which can be frustrating if you have to delete a lot of songs
Not useable
by user1737639 on 2021/07/20 07:09
This interface is horrible! You can’t make selections from your playlist because it minimizes on its own. Trying to select a song is a chore and chances are you’ll select the wrong one because your playlists always minimizes. You might as well just search for the song you want to hear but pray to god you’re not moving while you’re doing it. I’ve never had an be so unusable on the move. I don’t know how many times it’s made me want to quit a workout. Not to mention some genius thought they should play ads in the middle of a song, I guess YouTube has to make money somehow because I don’t know anyone who would pay for this trash.
Can’t download

Can’t download any of the YouTube apps. If I can’t figure it out I’m not going to keep paying for premium.

Surprisingly bad
by Prester Dave on 2021/07/20 04:36
I was a google play user/subscriber, and while it wasn’t perfect, suffering recurring playback glitches on my tablet, it was still usable. This app is a significant step back. I am old school, I suppose, and want to download and listen to albums. But, so many missing features! I can’t play a playlist when not on wifi. I can’t add a downloaded album to a playlist (a feature recently removed!) I can’t sort the download list by artist/release date/download date/most recently played/play count. Only Album Name. I can’t make a playlist out of the current queue. I don’t get why these features are missing, since many where available on play music. Google needs a few music fans on the app team, just to design the system and how it’s used, not just coders.
Seriously?

I can’t believe you need to pay just to listen to music with your phone off! very useless
Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improve
by WITH LOVE... on 2020/07/14 01:42
I’m super happy they finally allowed the transfer of our Google Play music playlists, but using this as my main music app is going to need a few improvements if I’m being honest. First, the app can be glitchy when loading info the current song playing, and sometimes I have to close the app fully to get it to work. Secondly, if you are going to have a feature of having lyrics built into the app, please update it to where you know any song made within the last 30-40 years at the minimum will load no matter the genre or artist, no matter how popular or not the song is (in it’s current state it feels like a beta rather than a fully released music app.) I enjoy it overall but am looking forward to improvements moving forward.
So bad
by Kjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/21 03:26
This is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service.
Inexcusably bad
by D. Comiskey on 2020/11/12 01:34
I don’t even know where to start with just how buggy and unusable this app and YT Music is overall. It’s not a step down from Google Play - it’s ten steps down. GP worked flawlessly, you could edit metadata (like artwork), stream through your Sonos for FREE and it has/had a simple User interface. YTM has none of that and it’s simply inexcusable. All they had to do was rebrand GPM and call it a day. Instead, we get an app that is so frustrating to use. Plug it in CarPlay and you don’t get a “most recent” screen like every, single other music app gives you. You have to manually navigate to what you want. If you want to start up where you left off before, you have to use the app on the phone and make at least 3 clicks to get to your recent album/songs. It also doesn’t remember your playback settings. If you click on “repeat” for an album, it will usually stop by the second play. If you don’t have repeat on and you’re at the last song of an album, hitting the |> button won’t take you back to the first track. Again, that is just BASIC functionality. If you want to stream your library through your Sonia system? Well, with GP it was free. Now? You have to pay for the 9.99/mo upgrade fee for YTM “Premium.” No thanks, Google. You don’t take away a free service and give us an inferior one as a replacement and have the gall to charge people for it.
Basic features are a failure
by CurtisL on 2020/10/01 16:26
I truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating.
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
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.
Poor substitute
by NathanFilz on 2021/03/13 06:46
The company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed. Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play. Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer.
One “tiny” complaint
by •Kit Katt• on 2020/09/24 16:05
Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.
Forget previous review...I love this app
by nikanico on 2020/02/24 22:24
Update: I figured I’d leave the prior review there to show how stupid I am... just don’t touch the screen so hard and those songs will move all over the place with incredible ease. I figured it out by accident.... moron moment over... love this app now more than ever... love love love Look, I love this service because it has literally every song/cover/live version etc. of everything.... however, I spend all day making these playlists that I cannot rearrange!!!!! I click edit, the equal sign (I don’t know what else to call it) appears on the left and I have to touch that thing like 87 times before I can get it just right so the stupid menu doesn’t come up instead. I HATE IT. It is literally so frustrating it makes me not even want to use the app. I’ve had to resort to deleting things that I want to be at the end of the playlist and then adding them again just to get them to where I want. Please please please fix this or make it easier or bigger or something. It’s literally a crapshoot on whether I can touch it just right so I can pull it up or down in the playlist. I can’t be the only one this annoys. That would shock me to the core....
Content winner, though lacking some polish and features
by Caster Shell on 2018/02/09 19:39
Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?
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.
Why did we get a step down?!
by rdzielinski on 2021/05/18 05:17
I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
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.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
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.
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..
You tube music
by mantec82 on 2019/04/10 20:15
It is awesome to pick out songs that take me back to the high school days of the seventies star. Football player and rock guitar was progressing rapidly into the mind blowing riffs we rock and rollers know and love I have many of the best guitar in the world in my head thanks to you tube music I can tell the guitar hero from the first phrase of there guitar I’m 60 now and the music of today well I know they are artists and all they never be a Eddie or Alex or jimi h jimmy thanks to you tube music they will live in my world forever long live classic rock thank you Eddie who is Van Halen and Alex you should all know in my opinion the greatest guitar player ever who he is you tube music keeps these guys will captivate-generations to come thx Tom c
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
Love it.. except
by Christian369 on 2021/02/09 03:25
Love everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server [400]“. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list.
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
Queue/Songs no longer available
by Zach5278833652 on 2021/07/15 12:47
The add to queue doesn’t seem to work properly or maybe how you would think it would work. It seems like if you start playing a playlist, and you queue a song it goes to the very end of when the entire playlist is played. I would have thought it would queue the songs to play next. You could do this by adding multiple songs with the “play next” option, but then you need to know the reverse order you want the songs to play. Also there is no swipe control to queue songs. I’m not entirely sure what is going on, but occasionally songs in my playlist become unavailable. It doesn’t make sense because you can go look up the same song and find it available in search. What is causing this?
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!
Could be better
by Momo Sakura on 2021/06/08 18:02
This is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :)
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.
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.
Needs improving
by WD4L1988 on 2021/05/07 09:23
I don’t understand why we can add full albums to our library, but we can’t delete individual songs from albums within the library. That makes no sense at all. I don’t always like full albums and deleting songs is much easier than skipping them every time they play. Also the alphabet off to the side in the library would be helpful when searching for songs. And why don’t we have the option to put songs by artists in alphabetical order when we click their name in our library? Maybe everyone doesn’t want songs in order by album. I love the amount of music on the app and how organized things are, but these are major issues that are turn offs. If it weren’t for the fact that I can get a lot of music on this app that isn’t available elsewhere I would’ve been cancelled my subscription. Please fix this ASAP.
Just falls short
by kcchiefn420 on 2020/11/03 06:43
This app has a lot of potential and I’m not sure who decided to have it work the way it does but very simple things this app doesn’t offer is holding it back so much. For instance if I click add song to queue it makes so much more sense to add said song to a new list that starts after the current song playing not at the end of the shuffled playlist which can have hundreds of songs in it. Adding to a queue means you want to listen to it next or at the least soon. And why for the love of god is it almost the end of 2020 and this app doesn’t support the ability to remember the shuffle and replay settings when you come back to the app. I mean such simple things like this are littered through the app and are holding what has potential to be the best music streaming app back from the top. TL:DR Fire whoever your app dev is cause they are trash.
Dude Waht
by LaurenTheLaw on 2018/06/24 22:27
I really enjoyed this app. . . Up until recently. See, with the past few updates, it getting harder and harder to find the music I like. It recommends different versions of a song I like, but I don’t want different versions, I just want to listen to the song the way I like it. Be it faster tempo or otherwise. Also, first page I see when I enter the app now offers less of the things I’m interested in. While my favorite songs are cramped in a corner all together, a bunch of things I don’t care about take up the entire screen. I don’t want to listen to ‘New Releases’ or ‘Hottest Country Albums’ because that’s NOT WHAT I LIKE. The music I want is shoved in a corner under ‘your favorites’. SURE, those are TOTALLY my favorites and not just DIFFERENT THINGS ENTIRELY. I don’t even know what half of the stuff recommended to me are! I had high hopes for these few big updates, but all I see is failure to pander towards the audience. Please, staff. I know there is a low chance of someone reading this, especially since it’s a negative review. Please give me back the app that I loved! Instead of just calling random music you’ve thrown at me ‘personalized’, just go back to the way you were. This isn’t difficult. All you have to do is take away the new bad stuff, and replace it with the old good stuff. Thank you. Sincerely, An unhappy customer
Downloads are a pain
by RettopMK on 2021/01/27 18:08
A decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple.
Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
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...
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.
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!
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.
Worst replacement of play music
by joshin'ron on 2021/05/25 16:35
I hate the app. I have bought hundreds of dollars worth of music and collected them in my play account. Now with the migration to YTM, I am consistently encouraged to buy a subscription. Even when listening to music I already bought, when relaunching the app, YTM will have the last song ginned up ready for me to play. When I press play it launches an ad and then plays the song from their service and not my library. No. I bought the music so I could listen to it. I don’t want a subscription. When I go to my library, the developers couldn’t have made a longer path to my purchased music. I am constantly bombarded with the subliminal message that I need to subscribe. I hate this app. I gave it a good try, but only detest it more with every use. I’m going to download all my purchased music from Google and deleting YTM and Google from my life.
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!
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
