All around great app
by Ashy :pp on 2022/05/28 05:57
My only gripe with it is that it doesn’t have a sleep timer like most other music players do. I usually go to sleep while listening to music and I don’t wanna drain my battery too much by having the music on all night so I use the sleep timer often but other than the app not having it, it’s still a great app to use to listen to my favorite music
Pretty good

WE NEED AN EQUALIZER
by wade wilkins on 2022/05/28 04:10
overall like the app for the most part but iOS doesn’t have an equalizer. Switched to iOS from android about a year and a half ago and the most disappointing thing about it was the lack of an equalizer. I miss being able to turn the bass up and make songs actually sound good!!

Just a small thing
by cronigr on 2022/05/28 02:03
I find it particularly frustrating that you can’t have music going on while having your device on another app or with power off without premium. I mean, I’m completely fine with ads, but this is basically YouTube but with like two more features and the same benefits as normal premium and I’m not buying premium.
So many ads
by OaxacaChris on 2022/05/27 20:35
Unless you pay the 15.99 a month, the videos are nearly impossible to enjoy.
Question
by Laiaiaiaiaia on 2022/05/27 20:01
Hey so when I downloaded the app today it said I had a free trial until like June 30th and I did pay for any subscriptions, a premium or a free trial and I am wondering if this has happened to anyone. I have never paid for anything on my phone that’s wasn’t robux. I’m 14 and I am panicking because I don’t know what happened. Has this happened to anyone, am I just unlucky or is this normal. There isn’t a cancel button and I don’t know what’s happening. Please help thank you.
This app is just mean
by MarleyTurned on 2022/05/27 16:55
I was forced into this app when google removed google play. My purchased music is still here, but google makes it very cumbersome to access my music, and when I return to the app, it looks like I can just tap on play and continue listening, but is is not in my paid music library, it is in the pay to play section, so an advertisement plays without the ability to exit. I truly hate everything about his app and the people who developed it.
Wow a lot of adds
by lallen1269 on 2022/05/27 14:55
Love having the ability to find almost any song sang by anyone and saving it. The issue is all the adds after every song. I get it, you need to make money but 30 sec adds after every song is insane
Trash playlist retention
by pv0321 on 2022/05/27 09:08
Playlist is not retained when I open the app. Worst music app ever.
Almost good
by aluicious ignacious on 2022/05/26 22:56
This app is good most of the time. However with music “meant for kids” you can’t add it to a playlist or play it on MiniPlayer. What is the purpose of this? So infuriating
Android
by ShadyLewie on 2022/05/26 21:49

Great!
by KayWoods96 on 2022/05/26 12:06
It’s honestly a great app. I just put 4 stars because I want them to continue to make it greater lol. I just got an iPhone and I have Apple Music which is great too but YT is still my primary music app used. They really take into learning music you would like.
errors
by dkfjhdkfbbdux on 2022/05/26 11:33
I listen to a lot of YouTube music and read the lyrics. It's a Korean song, but it's written in Japanese. And I pressed the random button, but it's not random. If I press the random button in the middle of the song, it'll be 0 minutes. When the song ends, it moves on to another song, but it's annoying. When you listen to songs on the playlist, only the songs on the top come out when it's random. Lastly, please make a function to change the play list cover. If there is, please make it visible. I think it'll be okay if you just fix these
Overall satisfied
by deuxpaul on 2022/05/26 06:41
One issue that I’ve experienced that annoys me is the music pausing if you switch apps by swiping up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone. Other than that the functionality of the app makes up for this one issue. :))

YouTube need to get a program to balance out their music. Some song volumes comes in high and some come very low.
Background Play
by GeminitheWolf on 2022/05/25 18:18
Honestly Youtube Music is a great app. It has songs on it you can’t find on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever you use for free. The only reason why I don’t prefer this app though is the background play. I. Need. Background. Play. Everything I do when I listen to music is off the app. Now I can’t do any of that as I can’t leave the app and still listen to the music without paying. Now, I can’t buy premium as I don’t have the money. I use Spotify for free and I prefer it more just because of background play. I can work with ads. I can work with limited skips. I can WORK with medium quality audio. But BACKGROUND PLAY?! I can’t do that.
No Equalizer
by lsantverde on 2022/05/25 17:20
This app really needs an equalizer. It the main reason why I use Spotify instead; the sound quality is just not as good. Also needs better support for the Apple Watch. The Spotify app allows you to choose any song as long as it's on a playlist. With YT Music you have to skip until reaching the song you want. App could be great but right now it's kinda annoying.

Review of YouTube music
by nwe to Utah on 2022/05/25 14:01
Overall I really enjoy it. There are a few things I’d change fir the cost of the subscription. The sound volume varies a bit to much, as well as the quality of the sound . If I didn’t use the regular YouTube as much as I do, I enjoy no adds) I would probably go in a different direction for the cost. Overall I’m happy with the service for sure.
Easy to use
by Wickedstone on 2022/05/25 13:44
Began using YouTube music back when it was Songza. Still like the user interface and ability to search all artists, playlists, etc. My favorite part about the app is the ability to close the screen and listen to my music in the background.
Awesome so worthwhile!

by otis 4 on 2022/05/25 10:24
The app never works. It’s always buffering or never plays songs. Paid for close to 600 songs years ago and can’t even listen to them. The people of YouTube music should consider a different career choice. Making music apps clearly isn’t there strong point.

by Churchvan Papi on 2022/05/24 22:40

Pretty good but keeps crashing
by Someone who plays clash royale on 2022/05/24 22:36
Every time I want to download a song and I tap the 3 dots it either takes a full 3 minutes to load, or it crashes the whole app. I thought this would be fixed by now but it keeps happening, even after updates. I cant download the songs I like so it feels like I’m paying for something I either cant use or it’s very Inconvenient. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem and I hope this gets fixed.
Could be better
by ctf760 on 2022/05/24 20:43
Music doesn’t save position when the app closes. Also, keeps randomly changing The song.
Worst app money driven
by gerar de cali on 2022/05/24 19:39
They do not show you your uploaded music if you search for it. They only show you what is uploaded to YouTube so they can get ad money. Worst app makes it o convenient to access your personal library.

I’ve never gotten this mad trying to listen to good music I’ve had it for about a year and it’s getting worse and worse. App never works right and the music algorithm is a joke I hate this app so much. Give us a YouTube only subscription please.

Force closes
by mandyfromak on 2022/05/24 14:32
I loved this app…I’ve got multiple playlists that I’ve made over the YEARS of using this app… But no matter how many times it’s been “updated” the app will force close on me if I’m using another app or my screen turns off. I’m not 19.99 for the family plan for it to keep force closing on us. Please fix this before I cancel my subscription and use another app.

You say you hear us, somehow these updates don't include the double tap forwards or backwards feature for iPhone users but does for Android users. Also, I still can’t organize my download music in alphabetical order. This is not something we must ask for. I love the app, it is 4-5 stars worthy. Those small details really matter to me personally.

2022 where are the lyrics
by Timmothy flagson on 2022/05/23 21:19
Where are the lyrics for songs that are obtainable straight from google? Google is YouTube, isn’t YouTube Music therefore google too? Give us lyrics, otherwise Apple Music is winning in this category.
Fantastic music experience.

Don’t think google is serious about this app
by C41k on 2022/05/23 18:12
Basic things are very difficult, sorting a playlist by artist is not possible. Songs randomly get lost and then when replaced other songs get lost so you are constantly replacing songs In playlists and because albums get re-released. You would think that google or all companies would figure how to map re-releases to original albums, but no… I had hope because the video functionality is amazing but this app fails as a music app. I think I will stick with Tidal until google shows that it is serious about this app. Also no Apple TV App that let’s me watch my playlists as videos. Real missed opportunity there.
Never Would Have Thought
by WOODOG25 on 2022/05/23 16:18
As I said, I never would have thought that YouTube would have been my go-to for news and project/hobby information. All I can say, what the Encyclopedias did then, YouTube does it now. Granted, there is a reality to it all, but as a big picture…way better!
So dumb… YouTube is better for music than actual YT music app
by The Eidetic on 2022/05/23 15:37
So yeah let me explain here. I’ve been recently listening to strictly “Linkin Park” to “stim” too. They are amazing. So on the actual YouTube app I can SELECT the song from the playlists(when it’s a whole album/best songs in one YT video playlist) and on YouTube Music app it doesn’t allow me to do that. That’s so absurd… why does the OG YouTube app allow me to select specific songs from a long a** compilation of songs from one band but when I go to the YouTube Music app… it doesn’t have this feature. It literally makes zero sense to me. That’s the reason I’m leaving a low rating… until they implement the same feature they have for the OG YouTube app and apply the same logic to the YouTube Music app I will not change the rating. I’ve had the app literally for only a few minutes at the time of this review… I DO NOT COMPREHEND why they cannot apply the same feature to the YouTube Music app where you can specifically select a certain song on the playlist/compilation. It doesn’t add up. Either it’s that or I’m dumb and haven’t explored the features fully. It’s just one thing I noticed IMMEDIATELY after trying out the YouTube Music app. Like please please just implement the same feature. That’s all I’m asking for!

A YouTube subscription gives me the ability to see YouTube videos without ads. I’m also able to listen to YouTube music and enjoy rare videos on YouTube without the video and save on data. The only issue I have with YouTube and Google is constantly changing applications abandoning software and adding and removing features randomly.

Useless
by Princess Twilight on 2022/05/22 20:42
This should’ve just been a paid for app to begin with, it’s completely useless to me. I downloaded it under the guise that I thought this worked like SoundCloud and I could listen to music outside of the app, having no idea that even that had to be paid for. It worked for a week but then it stopped and blocked the usage with a paywall. So I can’t even use this app when I’m driving and I need to use the map, unless I pay. So what’s the difference between this and just the regular YouTube app, what makes this at all special or different from it? Guess I’ll delete this since all its doing at this point is taking up space and I’ll go to SoundCloud instead. Waste of time.

Amazing at first but here’s the truth
by anaksisismemwm on 2022/05/21 19:07
EDITED: Below is my first review. This is what I think now. Still pretty good selection that Apple and Spotify cannot keep up with. The recommended is amazing. But I’m agitated with the developers. There is ZERO integration for offline use. You must live in a populated area with strong signal all the time and unlimited data. ZERO versatility with downloads section. You cannot search downloads while offline or minimum service. Playlists rendered USELESS when minimum service available. If I want to find a certain song, I have to scroll a list of 900 songs and manually look for it, again ZERO search options for downloads. I live in the mountains currently but when I lived in Atlanta this would have been 5/5. Developers are clearly more concerned with authentication rather than user friendly interface. Probably trying Spotify which I’m not looking forward to at all………………………………………………………………………..I use YoutubeTV and now I’m so glad I switched to YouTube music instead of Apple Music. Apple Music is amazing but YouTube takes it to the next level. The videos that aren’t official releases are a major game changer. The layout isn’t bad at all to look at. It’s fast and easy to navigate. So glad I switched from Apple Music. I was missing so many good vibes!
When can we search threw our downloads?

Best App EVER!!
by DashnChill on 2022/01/09 08:34
When you tube music firs started I have to admit I hated the app starting a station would only give you eight songs and then it would go on repeat, I got fed up and reached out to google customer support and definitely one of the best customer service ever, the representative that help me out tried everything to figure out why it wouldn’t auto play continuously, finally we gave up and the problem continued, finally google reached out to me again and asked me how my experience with the app was and I was on the verge of canceling my service but the amazing people at google took my threat seriously and fixed the issue right away, now every time I start a station new songs keep popping up, I am definitely a happy customer and will be referring others to google instead of all the other platforms, Thanks Google for fixing the issue I’ am one happy customer who will continue using your services if I had 4 thumbs they’d be way up 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
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.
Almost
by MilkmanRulz on 2022/02/11 17:27
When I first got the App years ago it was great. The app is still working wonderfully when it comes to finding songs, getting recommendations, and adding music to a playlist. And I really like the inclusion of accessing community playlists. What irks me is that I’m having issues editing my playlist off the app. I’ll spend time, kill a GOOD bit of time, editing a playlist and it won’t save! I’ll hit the editing pencil icon, move songs around, hit done, then I refresh the playlist to find that it’s still the same. It’s really really frustrating! And I can’t get continuous play off my downloaded playlists often. It will stop play early in the playlist, or glitch out altogether and stop at one song. When it stops at one song it will usually say, “unable to find playlist.” Really tired of this as well. These really shouldn’t be issues. It’s kind of the core of the App to have these functions. It’s like having a movie service subscription, but you only get to watch on odd numbered days. What’s the point?! Really shouldn’t have to point out that the focus on the developers should be to make sure the core services that the App provides are working as they should. Let’s make sure the App does what it’s advertised to do before we get ambitious.
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.
Love it
by gmannboii on 2022/05/14 04:04
First music service I’ve paid for and I love it. Even the free version with ads is still more complacent than all the other music platforms, not to mention how it includes free access to any music, the ability to play in whatever order, play next, and many more, all you can even do without paying. That’s honestly why I tried it in the first place because it was already so good free but then the premium makes it ten times better. Love the personal mixes, love the radios, and absolutely love the offline mistake. However, my one and only peeve is that sometimes my offline mixtape gets stuck downloading a track and then doesn’t finish at all, currently whenever that happens I just uninstall/reinstall. But other than that I’m happy to pay for this music service, something I really never saw myself doing.
You can listen to music with this
by delta airport on 2021/08/13 19:16
Yes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Great app, big flaws
by c*dot on 2021/09/22 07:19
This is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment. Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place. Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.
This app is below average
by grizzlemynizzle on 2021/09/06 23:21
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far
Okay, but needs improvement
by WD4L1988 on 2022/05/03 18:55
I love how organized the library is but there are still issues that have been problems for years now. When adding an album to my library why can’t we delete individual songs?? It’s time consuming to have to individually add the songs to your library just to be able to delete songs when you please. I may not like a whole album, but I’m stuck with all the songs in my library unless I go one by one adding songs. Also can we have the alphabet and something to scroll with on the side when it comes to artists, songs, and albums? I have so much music and it would so much easier to find stuff if there were scrolling options. And when organizing artists, songs, and albums can we have an option of organizing alphabetically and also by artist? Also there is no way to organize songs within a playlist. Alphabetically, by artist, by album, etc. Simple fixes like these would make this app five stars in my book.
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.
Very glitchy
by Thenewchiken on 2021/11/05 13:26
Endlessly stuck downloading one of my playlists at 99%. Most of it is already downloaded. Actually sometimes it takes a while to update the playlist and download newer songs. Can’t remove songs from collaborative playlists if not owner. Also it doesn’t always display the right song playing. For example. It’s playing thriller by Michael Jackson but in the notifications it says some other song. Also while connected to my cars aux it always repeats songs at least once. Can’t turn it off even if the setting is off. It’s not always compatible with the Ford Focus software. Also I should mention that I’m on free trial. So basically premium. But it’s not worth real money. Also you can’t search songs in downloaded. For example I downloaded 2000 songs and I want to find music by Yung Gravy, I can’t search for it. Also sometimes the “play next” list is glitched and doesn’t show. Also I made a Siri shortcut where it plays a playlist but it’s the same order everytime. There’s no option to shuffle
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.
The new update created a new bug
by reisenthedos on 2021/11/16 01:58
So, supposedly instead of fixing the “only one song in a DOWNLOADED playlist when not using the app while before driving “ it now crashes in the middle of the first song just when the car is barely moving to a certain speed. It doesn’t do that if your listening to music while working or just chilling, only on a moving car. Also the random button doesn’t really randomize the music in the playlist. I noticed this whenever it lands on certain songs and it starts playing on a particular order. I missed how you can just press the randomizer button to get random songs. Now it only randomizes every other press, losing the point of the button. And when you have the randomize button on and you do something else for a bit before coming back to the app, it’ll unrandomize itself, losing whatever particular order it had when it was randomize. Please go back to the previous patch til you fix this! I don’t like listening to the radio while driving.
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.
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.
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
You Tube music & Music videos
by Wildcatbill1957 on 2022/03/25 09:44
I use this nearly everyday. I was a teenager in 1970, the greatest era music will ever know, I can find all of that energizing music here, on this app. It is rare when there is a signal problem, it does happen but If I put a number on it and the reason Is usually loss of Wi-Fi and I’m usually in the same location when it happens to me. Occasionally maybe twice a week it may stop and it just takes a touch of my phone to restart it all in all its a non issue, if you receive a call it will stop and as soon as the call is over it picks back up where it stopped. I personally love it can’t stump it(I can find about any song I’ve ever looked for. Concert footage fantastic takes me back to my happy place. I could go on but I need to hear some great rock and roll now!
Good app. One Dealbreaker Flaw
by Electromagnet83 on 2021/08/24 13:30
This app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should. What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc. My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service.
Great app but needs improvement
by Raise sell prices on 2021/08/05 13:10
I love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it. This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about. Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess.
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....
Hey
by Jesswards iPhone III on 2022/01/14 20:56
I’m giving this 1 less star than when I first started to use this app. Somewhere between the last update and now, the “recently played” arrow button next to those words was gone. You guys had put it in the main account bar menu and honestly that was sucha huge mistake. Now I had to go and find and click my way to my recently played history. From songs like a week ago or so. Yeah had a big issue with that, I had to tinker around the controls to find my recently played songs list. You guys fixed it now which I am very happy. That is a feature that serves a great purpose for someone like me. Sure there must be others that have the same feeling towards it. Thanks for putting it back and listening to your clients. But I’m giving it a 3 star rating. Maybe next time it updates or asks for a review I’ll leave a better one, if they keep that feature and or elaborate more on it. Thank you :)
Cash Grab
by tke240 on 2020/07/23 20:23
If you’re coming from Google Play and if you’re already paying for a Google Play subscription, then this app may be perfectly suited to you. If you’re migrating from the free version of Google Play, you’re likely going to be very unhappy. The app seems specifically designed to annoy the user with as many roadblocks to enjoying their music as possible in order to force them into purchasing a subscription. The app will not run in the background without a subscription, so forget about using it in the car and having a gps running at the same time. Advertisements are played in between nearly every song, including music you already purchased. Often these would be video ads so if you’re on a limited data plan, that’s going to hurt. Downloading your music is a premium feature as well. YouTube’s global head of music, Lyon Cohen, stated in an interview at SXSW “There’s a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers,” and it appears he’s making good on that. Google Play generated income off me in their free service by playing ads on their radio, which I was fine with and presumably by taking a cut of the sale whenever I purchased an album from them, which I was also fine with. However, I won’t be bullied into paying for a subscription. I’ve transferred my music to another service and will not be purchasing further music through Google/YouTube which is a shame as I felt Google Play was really well done.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
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.
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.
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?
Aight music app
by Vwocbw on 2022/03/31 01:58
I use this app to listen to all my music. However there are some songs that aren’t available on this platform but are available elsewhere. But one of the things that bothers me is the fact that there isn’t no features to listen to music on a playlist from oldest added to newest added. Because I don’t want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom of my playlist to listen to old songs I added. Also some other features that would be nice to have is the ability to filter through songs in your playlist so kind of like a search bar or options to help sort by music. Also another thing that would be nice is the option or ability that you can turn on or off to find new music not based on music you listen to already so you can find and explore new music from people you probably haven’t heard of.
Getting Better
by rajohns on 2021/10/09 14:33
This app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars. For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track. I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update.
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
If you have premium, just use the regular app
by Lizzie Licious on 2021/10/06 10:06
In the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that. My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT. Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app. Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent App, one small issue …..
by JohnEJaan on 2021/11/12 15:15
This is a great app, has finally tuned into what I really like , love ALL the musical options. But. When I go to add a song to my playlists. I can only add a song to ONE playlist when I’d like to add it to more than one . So I have to keep clicking “add to playlist “ to get this accomplished . Unlike the regular You Tube app, when you go to save a song it gives you checkboxes for ALL your playlists and save for later lists as well . Hook this up GOOGLE! Give us check boxes , and the options for all our playlist simultaneously until we are “DONE” with the addition to our playlist tasks ! Thanks though, really enjoy soo many options that you tube has . Keep up the good work ! Cheers
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 Music Selection But Terrible Functionality
by LordProphet718 on 2021/11/11 21:34
I’ve been complaining for months, maybe even a year, about issues with this app, and the fact I still encounter them speaks volume. The app force closes on me consistently after some time; I’ll uninstall the app, reinstall it, redownload all my music, and then I’ll have a working app for about a week or two, to then have to repeat the process again, and again and again and again. I’ve done ALL troubleshooting steps, from what I know being a technician, and from the help I was being offered by representatives, THE APP NEEDS TO BE WORKED ON, this issue and the fact I’ll be listening to a playlist then randomly all but one song will be removed from the queue is very annoying. And I’m tired of asking for help and representatives making it seem like it’s something wrong that I’m doing. I explain my issues as clearly as possible and just get brushed off, this app needs to be fixed
Fantastic music app and the only one I use
by Gagey K on 2021/11/17 14:41
I love this app and have been using it for a long time but I do have one request, it probably isn’t a big deal for most but I preferred this app over the others because of the way the album covers were presented on a more full screen display. But with recent updates the album cover art has been significantly reduced in size where it’s not very much to look at. I would much prefer there be an option for the original layout where the album art is front and center like before. I feel like the cover art is an extension of the artist and their work and should be properly showcased to those who want to get a closer look at it.
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.
Start from radio
by Salem Kane on 2021/09/12 07:48
I really appreciate the app a lot, i just wish the “start from radio” would play songs more related to the theme and the sound of the song you started it with, or maybe that could be a separate feature, overall the song recommendation are good at showing me new things. Don’t get rid of how the radio functions its still nice and convenient, but maybe a new feature that allows you to start the radio based around the same theme and mood as the started song and not just same genre. I don’t know how making apps work. So if it’s more complicated to change or add in it’s totally fine, I appreciate the work that has gone into the app.
Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.
by rachelvest91 on 2021/10/07 21:26
The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.

All around great app
by Ashy :pp on 2022/05/28 05:57
My only gripe with it is that it doesn’t have a sleep timer like most other music players do. I usually go to sleep while listening to music and I don’t wanna drain my battery too much by having the music on all night so I use the sleep timer often but other than the app not having it, it’s still a great app to use to listen to my favorite music
Pretty good

WE NEED AN EQUALIZER
by wade wilkins on 2022/05/28 04:10
overall like the app for the most part but iOS doesn’t have an equalizer. Switched to iOS from android about a year and a half ago and the most disappointing thing about it was the lack of an equalizer. I miss being able to turn the bass up and make songs actually sound good!!

Just a small thing
by cronigr on 2022/05/28 02:03
I find it particularly frustrating that you can’t have music going on while having your device on another app or with power off without premium. I mean, I’m completely fine with ads, but this is basically YouTube but with like two more features and the same benefits as normal premium and I’m not buying premium.
So many ads
by OaxacaChris on 2022/05/27 20:35
Unless you pay the 15.99 a month, the videos are nearly impossible to enjoy.
Question
by Laiaiaiaiaia on 2022/05/27 20:01
Hey so when I downloaded the app today it said I had a free trial until like June 30th and I did pay for any subscriptions, a premium or a free trial and I am wondering if this has happened to anyone. I have never paid for anything on my phone that’s wasn’t robux. I’m 14 and I am panicking because I don’t know what happened. Has this happened to anyone, am I just unlucky or is this normal. There isn’t a cancel button and I don’t know what’s happening. Please help thank you.
This app is just mean
by MarleyTurned on 2022/05/27 16:55
I was forced into this app when google removed google play. My purchased music is still here, but google makes it very cumbersome to access my music, and when I return to the app, it looks like I can just tap on play and continue listening, but is is not in my paid music library, it is in the pay to play section, so an advertisement plays without the ability to exit. I truly hate everything about his app and the people who developed it.
Wow a lot of adds
by lallen1269 on 2022/05/27 14:55
Love having the ability to find almost any song sang by anyone and saving it. The issue is all the adds after every song. I get it, you need to make money but 30 sec adds after every song is insane
Trash playlist retention
by pv0321 on 2022/05/27 09:08

by aluicious ignacious on 2022/05/26 22:56
This app is good most of the time. However with music “meant for kids” you can’t add it to a playlist or play it on MiniPlayer. What is the purpose of this? So infuriating

by KayWoods96 on 2022/05/26 12:06
It’s honestly a great app. I just put 4 stars because I want them to continue to make it greater lol. I just got an iPhone and I have Apple Music which is great too but YT is still my primary music app used. They really take into learning music you would like.
errors
by dkfjhdkfbbdux on 2022/05/26 11:33
I listen to a lot of YouTube music and read the lyrics. It's a Korean song, but it's written in Japanese. And I pressed the random button, but it's not random. If I press the random button in the middle of the song, it'll be 0 minutes. When the song ends, it moves on to another song, but it's annoying. When you listen to songs on the playlist, only the songs on the top come out when it's random. Lastly, please make a function to change the play list cover. If there is, please make it visible. I think it'll be okay if you just fix these
Overall satisfied
by deuxpaul on 2022/05/26 06:41
One issue that I’ve experienced that annoys me is the music pausing if you switch apps by swiping up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone. Other than that the functionality of the app makes up for this one issue. :))

by Islandman868 on 2022/05/25 19:51
YouTube need to get a program to balance out their music. Some song volumes comes in high and some come very low.
Background Play
by GeminitheWolf on 2022/05/25 18:18
Honestly Youtube Music is a great app. It has songs on it you can’t find on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever you use for free. The only reason why I don’t prefer this app though is the background play. I. Need. Background. Play. Everything I do when I listen to music is off the app. Now I can’t do any of that as I can’t leave the app and still listen to the music without paying. Now, I can’t buy premium as I don’t have the money. I use Spotify for free and I prefer it more just because of background play. I can work with ads. I can work with limited skips. I can WORK with medium quality audio. But BACKGROUND PLAY?! I can’t do that.
No Equalizer
by lsantverde on 2022/05/25 17:20
This app really needs an equalizer. It the main reason why I use Spotify instead; the sound quality is just not as good. Also needs better support for the Apple Watch. The Spotify app allows you to choose any song as long as it's on a playlist. With YT Music you have to skip until reaching the song you want. App could be great but right now it's kinda annoying.

Review of YouTube music

Overall I really enjoy it. There are a few things I’d change fir the cost of the subscription. The sound volume varies a bit to much, as well as the quality of the sound . If I didn’t use the regular YouTube as much as I do, I enjoy no adds) I would probably go in a different direction for the cost. Overall I’m happy with the service for sure.
Easy to use
by Wickedstone on 2022/05/25 13:44
Began using YouTube music back when it was Songza. Still like the user interface and ability to search all artists, playlists, etc. My favorite part about the app is the ability to close the screen and listen to my music in the background.
Awesome so worthwhile!

Horrible.
by otis 4 on 2022/05/25 10:24
The app never works. It’s always buffering or never plays songs. Paid for close to 600 songs years ago and can’t even listen to them. The people of YouTube music should consider a different career choice. Making music apps clearly isn’t there strong point.

I like it’s curated playlists or Mix’s. Also when I play a song it continues with songs from the same genre, unlike Spotify
Love this service but
by Churchvan Papi on 2022/05/24 22:40
My only gripe is that the shuffle function is terrible. Seems like no matter how much I shuffle, the songs repeat and or play in a similar order. Otherwise, I love it.
Pretty good but keeps crashing
by Someone who plays clash royale on 2022/05/24 22:36
Every time I want to download a song and I tap the 3 dots it either takes a full 3 minutes to load, or it crashes the whole app. I thought this would be fixed by now but it keeps happening, even after updates. I cant download the songs I like so it feels like I’m paying for something I either cant use or it’s very Inconvenient. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem and I hope this gets fixed.
Could be better
by ctf760 on 2022/05/24 20:43
Music doesn’t save position when the app closes. Also, keeps randomly changing The song.
Worst app money driven
by gerar de cali on 2022/05/24 19:39
They do not show you your uploaded music if you search for it. They only show you what is uploaded to YouTube so they can get ad money. Worst app makes it o convenient to access your personal library.

I hate this app

I’ve never gotten this mad trying to listen to good music I’ve had it for about a year and it’s getting worse and worse. App never works right and the music algorithm is a joke I hate this app so much. Give us a YouTube only subscription please.
Awesome!!!

Force closes
by mandyfromak on 2022/05/24 14:32
I loved this app…I’ve got multiple playlists that I’ve made over the YEARS of using this app… But no matter how many times it’s been “updated” the app will force close on me if I’m using another app or my screen turns off. I’m not 19.99 for the family plan for it to keep force closing on us. Please fix this before I cancel my subscription and use another app.

Incomplete updates
by Abdullah A. A. on 2022/05/24 10:47
You say you hear us, somehow these updates don't include the double tap forwards or backwards feature for iPhone users but does for Android users. Also, I still can’t organize my download music in alphabetical order. This is not something we must ask for. I love the app, it is 4-5 stars worthy. Those small details really matter to me personally.

It doesn’t give me all music by the artist I type in. Should be able to make a playlist of songs that I want no matter who the artist is or the song. I pay for the app so why can’t I get the songs I want. Or just make it a free app then
2022 where are the lyrics
by Timmothy flagson on 2022/05/23 21:19
Where are the lyrics for songs that are obtainable straight from google? Google is YouTube, isn’t YouTube Music therefore google too? Give us lyrics, otherwise Apple Music is winning in this category.
Fantastic music experience.

Don’t think google is serious about this app
by C41k on 2022/05/23 18:12
Basic things are very difficult, sorting a playlist by artist is not possible. Songs randomly get lost and then when replaced other songs get lost so you are constantly replacing songs In playlists and because albums get re-released. You would think that google or all companies would figure how to map re-releases to original albums, but no… I had hope because the video functionality is amazing but this app fails as a music app. I think I will stick with Tidal until google shows that it is serious about this app. Also no Apple TV App that let’s me watch my playlists as videos. Real missed opportunity there.
Never Would Have Thought
by WOODOG25 on 2022/05/23 16:18

So dumb… YouTube is better for music than actual YT music app
by The Eidetic on 2022/05/23 15:37
So yeah let me explain here. I’ve been recently listening to strictly “Linkin Park” to “stim” too. They are amazing. So on the actual YouTube app I can SELECT the song from the playlists(when it’s a whole album/best songs in one YT video playlist) and on YouTube Music app it doesn’t allow me to do that. That’s so absurd… why does the OG YouTube app allow me to select specific songs from a long a** compilation of songs from one band but when I go to the YouTube Music app… it doesn’t have this feature. It literally makes zero sense to me. That’s the reason I’m leaving a low rating… until they implement the same feature they have for the OG YouTube app and apply the same logic to the YouTube Music app I will not change the rating. I’ve had the app literally for only a few minutes at the time of this review… I DO NOT COMPREHEND why they cannot apply the same feature to the YouTube Music app where you can specifically select a certain song on the playlist/compilation. It doesn’t add up. Either it’s that or I’m dumb and haven’t explored the features fully. It’s just one thing I noticed IMMEDIATELY after trying out the YouTube Music app. Like please please just implement the same feature. That’s all I’m asking for!

A YouTube subscription gives me the ability to see YouTube videos without ads. I’m also able to listen to YouTube music and enjoy rare videos on YouTube without the video and save on data. The only issue I have with YouTube and Google is constantly changing applications abandoning software and adding and removing features randomly.

Useless
by Princess Twilight on 2022/05/22 20:42
This should’ve just been a paid for app to begin with, it’s completely useless to me. I downloaded it under the guise that I thought this worked like SoundCloud and I could listen to music outside of the app, having no idea that even that had to be paid for. It worked for a week but then it stopped and blocked the usage with a paywall. So I can’t even use this app when I’m driving and I need to use the map, unless I pay. So what’s the difference between this and just the regular YouTube app, what makes this at all special or different from it? Guess I’ll delete this since all its doing at this point is taking up space and I’ll go to SoundCloud instead. Waste of time.

Amazing at first but here’s the truth
by anaksisismemwm on 2022/05/21 19:07
EDITED: Below is my first review. This is what I think now. Still pretty good selection that Apple and Spotify cannot keep up with. The recommended is amazing. But I’m agitated with the developers. There is ZERO integration for offline use. You must live in a populated area with strong signal all the time and unlimited data. ZERO versatility with downloads section. You cannot search downloads while offline or minimum service. Playlists rendered USELESS when minimum service available. If I want to find a certain song, I have to scroll a list of 900 songs and manually look for it, again ZERO search options for downloads. I live in the mountains currently but when I lived in Atlanta this would have been 5/5. Developers are clearly more concerned with authentication rather than user friendly interface. Probably trying Spotify which I’m not looking forward to at all………………………………………………………………………..I use YoutubeTV and now I’m so glad I switched to YouTube music instead of Apple Music. Apple Music is amazing but YouTube takes it to the next level. The videos that aren’t official releases are a major game changer. The layout isn’t bad at all to look at. It’s fast and easy to navigate. So glad I switched from Apple Music. I was missing so many good vibes!

Best App EVER!!
by DashnChill on 2022/01/09 08:34
When you tube music firs started I have to admit I hated the app starting a station would only give you eight songs and then it would go on repeat, I got fed up and reached out to google customer support and definitely one of the best customer service ever, the representative that help me out tried everything to figure out why it wouldn’t auto play continuously, finally we gave up and the problem continued, finally google reached out to me again and asked me how my experience with the app was and I was on the verge of canceling my service but the amazing people at google took my threat seriously and fixed the issue right away, now every time I start a station new songs keep popping up, I am definitely a happy customer and will be referring others to google instead of all the other platforms, Thanks Google for fixing the issue I’ am one happy customer who will continue using your services if I had 4 thumbs they’d be way up 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
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.
Almost
by MilkmanRulz on 2022/02/11 17:27
When I first got the App years ago it was great. The app is still working wonderfully when it comes to finding songs, getting recommendations, and adding music to a playlist. And I really like the inclusion of accessing community playlists. What irks me is that I’m having issues editing my playlist off the app. I’ll spend time, kill a GOOD bit of time, editing a playlist and it won’t save! I’ll hit the editing pencil icon, move songs around, hit done, then I refresh the playlist to find that it’s still the same. It’s really really frustrating! And I can’t get continuous play off my downloaded playlists often. It will stop play early in the playlist, or glitch out altogether and stop at one song. When it stops at one song it will usually say, “unable to find playlist.” Really tired of this as well. These really shouldn’t be issues. It’s kind of the core of the App to have these functions. It’s like having a movie service subscription, but you only get to watch on odd numbered days. What’s the point?! Really shouldn’t have to point out that the focus on the developers should be to make sure the core services that the App provides are working as they should. Let’s make sure the App does what it’s advertised to do before we get ambitious.
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.
Love it
by gmannboii on 2022/05/14 04:04
First music service I’ve paid for and I love it. Even the free version with ads is still more complacent than all the other music platforms, not to mention how it includes free access to any music, the ability to play in whatever order, play next, and many more, all you can even do without paying. That’s honestly why I tried it in the first place because it was already so good free but then the premium makes it ten times better. Love the personal mixes, love the radios, and absolutely love the offline mistake. However, my one and only peeve is that sometimes my offline mixtape gets stuck downloading a track and then doesn’t finish at all, currently whenever that happens I just uninstall/reinstall. But other than that I’m happy to pay for this music service, something I really never saw myself doing.
You can listen to music with this
by delta airport on 2021/08/13 19:16
Yes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.
by Monolith Soundworks on 2021/03/29 18:05
I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more.
GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heck
by Johns59 on 2021/10/19 17:49
I wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮
Great app, big flaws
by c*dot on 2021/09/22 07:19
This is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment. Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place. Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are.
Missing Google play music
by westopher718 on 2020/09/22 14:40
In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.
This app is below average
by grizzlemynizzle on 2021/09/06 23:21
Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far
Okay, but needs improvement
by WD4L1988 on 2022/05/03 18:55
I love how organized the library is but there are still issues that have been problems for years now. When adding an album to my library why can’t we delete individual songs?? It’s time consuming to have to individually add the songs to your library just to be able to delete songs when you please. I may not like a whole album, but I’m stuck with all the songs in my library unless I go one by one adding songs. Also can we have the alphabet and something to scroll with on the side when it comes to artists, songs, and albums? I have so much music and it would so much easier to find stuff if there were scrolling options. And when organizing artists, songs, and albums can we have an option of organizing alphabetically and also by artist? Also there is no way to organize songs within a playlist. Alphabetically, by artist, by album, etc. Simple fixes like these would make this app five stars in my book.
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.
Very glitchy
by Thenewchiken on 2021/11/05 13:26
Endlessly stuck downloading one of my playlists at 99%. Most of it is already downloaded. Actually sometimes it takes a while to update the playlist and download newer songs. Can’t remove songs from collaborative playlists if not owner. Also it doesn’t always display the right song playing. For example. It’s playing thriller by Michael Jackson but in the notifications it says some other song. Also while connected to my cars aux it always repeats songs at least once. Can’t turn it off even if the setting is off. It’s not always compatible with the Ford Focus software. Also I should mention that I’m on free trial. So basically premium. But it’s not worth real money. Also you can’t search songs in downloaded. For example I downloaded 2000 songs and I want to find music by Yung Gravy, I can’t search for it. Also sometimes the “play next” list is glitched and doesn’t show. Also I made a Siri shortcut where it plays a playlist but it’s the same order everytime. There’s no option to shuffle
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.
The new update created a new bug
by reisenthedos on 2021/11/16 01:58
So, supposedly instead of fixing the “only one song in a DOWNLOADED playlist when not using the app while before driving “ it now crashes in the middle of the first song just when the car is barely moving to a certain speed. It doesn’t do that if your listening to music while working or just chilling, only on a moving car. Also the random button doesn’t really randomize the music in the playlist. I noticed this whenever it lands on certain songs and it starts playing on a particular order. I missed how you can just press the randomizer button to get random songs. Now it only randomizes every other press, losing the point of the button. And when you have the randomize button on and you do something else for a bit before coming back to the app, it’ll unrandomize itself, losing whatever particular order it had when it was randomize. Please go back to the previous patch til you fix this! I don’t like listening to the radio while driving.
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.
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.
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
You Tube music & Music videos
by Wildcatbill1957 on 2022/03/25 09:44
I use this nearly everyday. I was a teenager in 1970, the greatest era music will ever know, I can find all of that energizing music here, on this app. It is rare when there is a signal problem, it does happen but If I put a number on it and the reason Is usually loss of Wi-Fi and I’m usually in the same location when it happens to me. Occasionally maybe twice a week it may stop and it just takes a touch of my phone to restart it all in all its a non issue, if you receive a call it will stop and as soon as the call is over it picks back up where it stopped. I personally love it can’t stump it(I can find about any song I’ve ever looked for. Concert footage fantastic takes me back to my happy place. I could go on but I need to hear some great rock and roll now!
Good app. One Dealbreaker Flaw
by Electromagnet83 on 2021/08/24 13:30
This app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should. What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc. My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service.
Great app but needs improvement
by Raise sell prices on 2021/08/05 13:10
I love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum.
App is good, but far from perfect
by Jarod SJ on 2021/07/15 19:14
At times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to.
I hate this. Google music this is not.
by i6ix on 2020/10/09 19:45
I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it. This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about. Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess.
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....
Hey
by Jesswards iPhone III on 2022/01/14 20:56
I’m giving this 1 less star than when I first started to use this app. Somewhere between the last update and now, the “recently played” arrow button next to those words was gone. You guys had put it in the main account bar menu and honestly that was sucha huge mistake. Now I had to go and find and click my way to my recently played history. From songs like a week ago or so. Yeah had a big issue with that, I had to tinker around the controls to find my recently played songs list. You guys fixed it now which I am very happy. That is a feature that serves a great purpose for someone like me. Sure there must be others that have the same feeling towards it. Thanks for putting it back and listening to your clients. But I’m giving it a 3 star rating. Maybe next time it updates or asks for a review I’ll leave a better one, if they keep that feature and or elaborate more on it. Thank you :)
Cash Grab
by tke240 on 2020/07/23 20:23
If you’re coming from Google Play and if you’re already paying for a Google Play subscription, then this app may be perfectly suited to you. If you’re migrating from the free version of Google Play, you’re likely going to be very unhappy. The app seems specifically designed to annoy the user with as many roadblocks to enjoying their music as possible in order to force them into purchasing a subscription. The app will not run in the background without a subscription, so forget about using it in the car and having a gps running at the same time. Advertisements are played in between nearly every song, including music you already purchased. Often these would be video ads so if you’re on a limited data plan, that’s going to hurt. Downloading your music is a premium feature as well. YouTube’s global head of music, Lyon Cohen, stated in an interview at SXSW “There’s a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers,” and it appears he’s making good on that. Google Play generated income off me in their free service by playing ads on their radio, which I was fine with and presumably by taking a cut of the sale whenever I purchased an album from them, which I was also fine with. However, I won’t be bullied into paying for a subscription. I’ve transferred my music to another service and will not be purchasing further music through Google/YouTube which is a shame as I felt Google Play was really well done.
Not working when offline
by -/$728 on 2020/09/25 18:51
I’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music.
Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.
by BklynAli on 2021/10/17 19:17
So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist.
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.
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.
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?
Aight music app
by Vwocbw on 2022/03/31 01:58
I use this app to listen to all my music. However there are some songs that aren’t available on this platform but are available elsewhere. But one of the things that bothers me is the fact that there isn’t no features to listen to music on a playlist from oldest added to newest added. Because I don’t want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom of my playlist to listen to old songs I added. Also some other features that would be nice to have is the ability to filter through songs in your playlist so kind of like a search bar or options to help sort by music. Also another thing that would be nice is the option or ability that you can turn on or off to find new music not based on music you listen to already so you can find and explore new music from people you probably haven’t heard of.
Getting Better
by rajohns on 2021/10/09 14:33
This app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars. For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track. I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update.
Very frustrating app if you're coming from google play
by julzzzzzzjo on 2020/12/29 17:01
They don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app.
If you have premium, just use the regular app
by Lizzie Licious on 2021/10/06 10:06
In the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that. My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT. Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app. Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent App, one small issue …..
by JohnEJaan on 2021/11/12 15:15
This is a great app, has finally tuned into what I really like , love ALL the musical options. But. When I go to add a song to my playlists. I can only add a song to ONE playlist when I’d like to add it to more than one . So I have to keep clicking “add to playlist “ to get this accomplished . Unlike the regular You Tube app, when you go to save a song it gives you checkboxes for ALL your playlists and save for later lists as well . Hook this up GOOGLE! Give us check boxes , and the options for all our playlist simultaneously until we are “DONE” with the addition to our playlist tasks ! Thanks though, really enjoy soo many options that you tube has . Keep up the good work ! Cheers
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 Music Selection But Terrible Functionality
by LordProphet718 on 2021/11/11 21:34
I’ve been complaining for months, maybe even a year, about issues with this app, and the fact I still encounter them speaks volume. The app force closes on me consistently after some time; I’ll uninstall the app, reinstall it, redownload all my music, and then I’ll have a working app for about a week or two, to then have to repeat the process again, and again and again and again. I’ve done ALL troubleshooting steps, from what I know being a technician, and from the help I was being offered by representatives, THE APP NEEDS TO BE WORKED ON, this issue and the fact I’ll be listening to a playlist then randomly all but one song will be removed from the queue is very annoying. And I’m tired of asking for help and representatives making it seem like it’s something wrong that I’m doing. I explain my issues as clearly as possible and just get brushed off, this app needs to be fixed
Fantastic music app and the only one I use
by Gagey K on 2021/11/17 14:41
I love this app and have been using it for a long time but I do have one request, it probably isn’t a big deal for most but I preferred this app over the others because of the way the album covers were presented on a more full screen display. But with recent updates the album cover art has been significantly reduced in size where it’s not very much to look at. I would much prefer there be an option for the original layout where the album art is front and center like before. I feel like the cover art is an extension of the artist and their work and should be properly showcased to those who want to get a closer look at it.
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.
Start from radio
by Salem Kane on 2021/09/12 07:48
I really appreciate the app a lot, i just wish the “start from radio” would play songs more related to the theme and the sound of the song you started it with, or maybe that could be a separate feature, overall the song recommendation are good at showing me new things. Don’t get rid of how the radio functions its still nice and convenient, but maybe a new feature that allows you to start the radio based around the same theme and mood as the started song and not just same genre. I don’t know how making apps work. So if it’s more complicated to change or add in it’s totally fine, I appreciate the work that has gone into the app.
Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.
by rachelvest91 on 2021/10/07 21:26
The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago.
I’m disappointed
by Tiny-Dez on 2021/04/09 00:23
I’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!
Okay but missing some key features.
by Manfredo94 on 2021/03/03 06:56
I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App. Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue. Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did. Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star.
