Cutting out
by angerygay on 2021/01/22 20:12
I love Spotify and have used it for years but recently it’s started to randomly stop playing music when I’m in the middle of listening and nothing I’ve done has fixed the issue. Hopefully they resolve the problem soon!
Won’t let me create an account
by considerate monster 14 on 2021/01/22 20:00
I downloaded this because my friend has it and requested it to me, I’m also getting annoyed with pandora and the way it works so I decided to give Spotify a shot. But it won’t even let me create an account. I meet the requirements and tried logging in many different ways and many times. Still won’t work. Kinda disappointed that it’s got problems right off the bat.
Only Music App You Need
by orme kid on 2021/01/22 19:59
I’ve used Spotify for over five years and have no complaints. I love this app and the ease of use and continuity makes it one of my favorites. Having my playlists and music library accessible from any device is awesome and I will always recommend it.

Came from Apple Podcast for JRE
by joewarnerky on 2021/01/22 19:56
And I miss Apple platform so much. Spotify doesn’t have there crap together at all with this app. I’ll be halfway through an episode and Spotify app will randomly switch me to most recent episode. Right now the app won’t even play any episode whatsoever just loads forever. I feel bad for other JRE listeners dealing with the same issues after years of perfect quality with Apple.
What a shame joe rogan went to Spotify
by Elon musk baby on 2021/01/22 19:56
I loved to watch his podcast on YouTube but now I barely ever watch it due to five minutes of commercials before every episode. Terrible.

No HomePod integration and random crashes

Feature: Spotify does not support Siri on the HomePod speakers. Big: When playing back music in Offline mode, Spotify stops and the app quits.

My favorite music streaming service
by Laurie8807 on 2021/01/22 19:01
Update 1/21/2021: still a Premium User. Loving the personalized playlists in the daily mixes. STILL waiting on the ability to rearrange my playlists in the library. I feel if you can change the order of your songs, you should be able to change the order your lists appear in as well. I hate having to scroll forever to get to the lists I use most often just because I make a new list for an occasion. Previous review: I love Spotify. I’ve been a premium member for a years now and love being able to find the perfect song at the perfect moment. I like the ability to download playlists for offline usage. The only improvement I wish they would add is the ability to rearrange playlists in the library. I’d like to group them by type (workout lists, movie soundtracks/game soundtracks, my kid’s favorites, etc) instead of scrolling forever trying to find a playlist because using the search bar doesn’t always work as I will have named it something different and forget what the name is🙈😅. I’ve tried Pandora, Songza, etc. and Spotify is by far the best I’ve tried.
Day one supporter!
by LitlAngelV on 2021/01/22 19:00
Been supporting Spotify since the first app release always the best from the indie music till now the best of best to listen to all your favs and new favs waiting to be heard! Plus with the 30 min free listen no adds is a major win. Forget pandora when you can Spotify! 🙌🤪✨

Needs updated/glitches
by Mieggs on 2021/01/22 18:01
I like this app however I found some glitches with this app I wish I could add either an artist, album, songs and even copy paste a playlist into custom made playlist it seems like a pain and time process always find an artist album or song to add to playlist then gets kicked off then restart. There was a similar section but it won’t show up anymore. Please update this to make it more user friendly

Forced use of a terrible app
by justinwb on 2021/01/22 17:19
There are so many issues with this app - it’s beyond annoying to be forced to use this app for listen to a podcast because Spotify buys and monopolizes it. At least make the app usable if your going to force us to use it.
Best music choice
by luckey75 on 2021/01/22 17:12
Been with Spotify for quite a while now and I’m always been impressed with the music selection easy use of their app. Hoping soon I I will be able to operate Spotify off my Apple Watch.
Irritated
by Mrgoodbar84 on 2021/01/22 17:09
The way the podcasts r played is stupid u have to select audio only ok fine. But thanks to the fact that I didn’t know I had to put it in offline mode to play downloaded podcast it chose to stream audio and video and wiped my half my data out in ten days that usually takes me a month to use
More songs
by Raynman72 on 2021/01/22 17:07
Why are there only a handful of songs on each channel?? Seems low for paid service.
Still no option to use Spotify as default music service
by EtienneAs on 2021/01/22 17:00
The ignorance of Spotify managers on this topic has forced me to cancel our family subscription after 4+ years. I honestly can’t understand why Pandora and Amazon can implement this and Spotify not.

Free Music/Podcasts
by Best game every trust me on 2021/01/22 16:59
This app is great it is free but it gives you a better time if you by Spotify Premium. Even if you don’t get Premium it is still great with 1 ad every 30 minutes and the ad is only 30 seconds. Once again this app is great definitely worth it and I recommend this to you.

Really cool but one problem
by veryveryvery angry bird on 2021/01/22 16:50
Please add a feature where you can block certain artists from being in your home feed. I looked up ONE Japanese death metal song, and I’ve been getting hentai/porn podcasts in my recommended. I no longer can use Spotify on my phone because my family thought I was using it to watch porn. Please add this feature so I can get Spotify back on my phone
**fixed** issues with playing music
by Protms on 2021/01/22 16:46
Hardly have ever had issues in the past but now I can’t even listen to music anymore I’m lucky if I can get through half a song without the music pausing then having to skip the song with all my music downloaded it’s never been an issue and now it’s impossible to enjoy listening to Spotify **deleted and reinstalled the app to fix all the issues**
Play List
by PammySue22 on 2021/01/22 16:46
Please correct that when you minimize to go to another site, the play list stays on the song that is playing and not go to the top of the list. It’s a waste of time to keep scrolling down.
Needs some polish
by james0123456789876543210 on 2021/01/22 16:45
I know they are intended for different purposes, but I much prefer the Apple podcast app. The Spotify app’s UI is a little clunky and the behavior can be inconsistent, especially when coming back to podcast episodes that I have not yet finished.
Spotify is awesome!!
by slimeier on 2021/01/22 16:44
I love Spotify because you can pick what artists you like and it will give you songs from whatever artists that you pick! Also it is all free!!!! I love it!!

Keeps undownloading my playlist when I close out the app or update the app, also has a hard time loading music when I have no service even though I have premium. Apple Music way better.

Cutting out

Great music but it cuts out every 5 minutes which is terribly annoying
Spotify doesn’t get me anymore 😩
by ald923 on 2021/01/22 15:38
I used to be so excited for new music fridays and the release radar. Nothing on these playlists reflect what I listen too. I spend more time “hiding” songs than actually listening to things I enjoy. The hide song feature is only for that specific playlist which is annoying. Bring back the dislike button so I can get back to music is actually listen too 👏🏻👏🏻
Crashing

Too many ads

There’s too many ads I would say most of them with Pete but otherwise it’s really good
Amazing 💖
by Pugs3535 on 2021/01/22 15:11
I usually listen to this while doing art or school work, and it plays well, and I can almost always find the songs i want by searching them up and matching lyrics. Yeah you’ll come across a few playlists that other people have made but its usually easy to find things. The aesthetic? No it might not be the best, but if your just searching for music, and adding it to a playlist and looping it, then theres really no reason to look at it. Just use the search, it can find songs based off of lyrics, artists, albums, and song titles. In general its fabulous 😄
Clean songs

Garbage
by frogstomp1981 on 2021/01/22 14:51
Lacks basic features. The 2nd most user unfriendly user interface I’ve used for podcasts. They apparently can’t even handle making an audio only download option for podcasts. Highly recommend using other platforms for podcasts. Would have given zero stars if I could have.

No video for Joe Rogan Podcast!!
by JREfans on 2021/01/22 14:01
So my husband told me about Joe Rogan’s podcast for a while before we actually sat down one day and watched an episode with him and I really liked it. It became something that we did regularly on our days off of work. Well then it became a Spotify exclusive podcast. So we got Spotify, the video will play on our phones, but only audio comes through our tv or fire stick. It’s just really disappointing because it’s just not the same experience, which was a really nice one originally. I really hope you can fix this. I understand it was a good deal for Joe to make and I’m sure anyone else would do the same, but we haven’t been able to watch it since JRE left YouTube. YouTube was simple and worked well. Please fix this so we can enjoy the JRE again. A lot of fans want it, and honestly it’s the only reason I have Spotify.
App not working
by Tra$hTalk on 2021/01/22 13:54
For the past couple of months the app just randomly crashes, won’t play a song through the search bar, or lags when I skip to the next song. If this keeps up I’m switching to Apple Music
Love Spotify,
by brickstreet sawmill on 2021/01/22 13:52
I would recommend Spotify to anyone, If your a smart tech person, or a regular person like me!
GOAT
by A_coward on 2021/01/22 13:51
Honestly, what more could you ask for. The premium package is a great deal and you’re somehow supporting the artists you love, all while having access to all the music in the world.
Bugs
by 0828663 on 2021/01/22 13:44
Love this app. However, It crashes quite frequently, even with premium. Sometimes I’ll be listening to a song, and out of nowhere the music stops playing and the app closes. Even clearing the cache doesn’t stop it for very long.
A modern day "need"
by Phil Sk on 2021/01/22 13:42

Randomly and frequently stops playing songs a few seconds in
by 川saki on 2021/01/22 13:36
Why is this app so buggy? It very frequently and for no apparent reason will stop playing songs two to six seconds in, and the only solution is to either restart the app or skip to the next track.
Please improve the podcast interface
by dan.fisher9 on 2021/01/22 13:27
Great content, but the podcast interface doesn’t work well for people who have a list of podcasts they consistently listen to.
It’s nice
by ScratchAskedWhy on 2021/01/22 13:26
The app is good. There are a lot of songs And the lag is good. The only problem is Spotify premium. I know they need to promote this. But they ask for you to buy it after every song, I can’t pay that and hearing it after every song is driving me mad. That’s all, thank you for reading my review:)

here we go again
by RGS Rainbow and Affiliates on 2021/01/22 12:51
spotify is really great until it breaks. i don’t exactly have the newest phone, an iPhone6s. but everything else on my phone works perfectly fine. spotify, no matter where i am, will often and repeatedly crash. the app will restart while i’m listening and then the song restarts. i don’t want to listen to the first 2 minutes of it again so i end up skipping it. they need to fix this. i would actually recommend spotify over apple music or soundcloud. apple music is a funny thing because you can play things at will but you do have to pay and there is no free version of it. spotify is also better than pandora because in spotify you can make playlists that won’t play things related to an artist (the only option in pandora). overall spotify is really great but only for new phones. otherwise you might listen to the same song 4-5 times in a row.
Killed Joe rogan
by fgfgfgfgfghf on 2021/01/22 12:51
You guys simply killed the Joe Rogan podcast. Play back time is always wrong and if i dont have service the podcast cuts off right away. And having adds in the middle of the podcast which he didn’t have before is disgusting. Just make it how it was on Apple!!

Good music app/ terrible podcast app
by DonTommisino on 2021/01/22 11:32
The music part of the app is fine, although I prefer Apple Music. Since Rogan went exclusively to Spotify, I have tried switch to using Spotify for my music and podcasts. The podcast feature of Spotify is pretty terrible. An auto episode download feature is podcast app 101 and Spotify doesn’t have it. The app randomly crashes,ends podcasts halfway through,etc. Also, the app doesn’t keep its place where you left off. I’ll stop a podcast, then when I resume it, it starts back up a few minutes before where I left off. Fix these 2 things
Adding songs goes to the bottom
by vinayAlps on 2021/01/22 11:04
THE MOST annoying thing on Spotify is when you add a new song to a playlist you make. IT GOES all the way to the bottom!!!??? If you add a new song IT MEANS you want to listen to that song over and over again and again! So MAKE IT COME TO THE TOP OF THE PLAYLIST PLEASE!
Poor MBA management team
by Clapsforyou on 2021/01/22 10:53
App often doesn’t keep music downloaded. Seems to be a means to prevent potential revenue loses. Family plan means you all have to live under the same roof. A lot of serious corporate issues that make Apple Music far superior. I’m still going to use the app but incredibly disappointed with a company like Spotify for extorting capitalism to the farthest extremes. Let people use your service worry free and be happy you’re a multi million dollar international company. Netflix does, and it’s still profitable. You could learn something from them Spotify.
It has only gotten worse
by Amazingness Graceieness on 2021/01/22 08:48
Pros: - has Many, many songs - there are awesome podcasts Cons: - WAY to many adds - $10 dollars a month? That’s pricey for just no adds and skipping songs whenever I want - needs more christian podcasts - adds are WAY to frequent

what is happening to my Spotify
by i hateeee jt on 2021/01/22 07:00
Hello, i love spotify and always use it but all a sudden my music will pause and the app will close as if there was no music playing and it keeps and keeps doing it. Sometimes i cant even get a full song to play without it doing it so i deleted the app multiple times and it still does it. i’m not making another account because i’ve had this one for 3 years and i want to keep it. It also started to block off cuss words sometimes now in the middle of no where that started becoming a thing? Something els is ill have so much songs in my playlist and it wont play then it would constantly play the same songs and not the other ones like what happened to the other songs? it’s like i’m constantly deleting the app for it to work and it’s the only music app i’ll use. Like this app is very good it’s just all a sudden not working anymore ??
Freezing
by Spiderkat on 2021/01/22 06:28
Every now and then the app freezes and doesn’t play any songs, I usually have to keep restarting it. Updated everything even iOS software but still have the same issue. Other than that the app is great, I still love it regardless.

Just one request.

Love, but...
by sadandblujee on 2020/02/08 07:25
Yuh so I love the app. I love the algorithm. I love how easy it is to discover new music. No complaints there. But, I don’t like how the home screen triggers my OCD. It feels cluttered and unorganized. Like an episode of tidying up with marie kondo. There’s too much. It’s become tiring. I’m not a fan of the square icons. Maybe a rounded corner icon would look more aesthetically pleasing. I’m just not vibing with the design of the app anymore. I’d like a more minimal, simple aesthetic to it. Also the podcast tab? I have absolutely nothing for that tab. Why is it there lol. And why get rid of the songs tab? Everyone hated that you got rid of it and changed it to liked songs smh. It was fine the way it was. Y’all have been losing my interest lately. And I’m not gonna front... I explored my options. I hung out with Apple Music for a while. And it was exciting and new. It made a good first impression. The design caught my eye. I was intrigued by the simplistic design and aesthetic of the app. It was fun the first few weeks. But it was difficult finding new music that I liked. I disliked that aspect. So here I am again. Giving you another chance. It’s 2020. New year new me right? Let’s switch things up a little. Try new and exciting things. This is our year to shine!
Lack of options, randomly censored songs
by espeonics on 2021/01/17 02:21
This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with. My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen. Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.
Almost Amazing

This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on). My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.
Love it but..

This app is awesome! I love how you can listen to your own music, and share it. But I don’t like how it adds music to your playlist, and won’t let you remove it. I don’t get that I really hope you fix it soon. Also, when I only want to listen to my music it makes me listen to a suggested track that I can’t get out of. What is with that? And, there is too many ads. And only 6 skips per HOUR?! Why? And, when my playlist is making me listen to other songs, I have to go to a different playlist, listen to 1 song in it, come back to my playlist, and there it is. another song I don’t need. I am probably one of those users that will get ignored, but if you are looking at this, congratulations. You get a gold sticker. I wish that the users without premium could get AT LEAST 10 skips and hour. It’s not fair with only 6 per hour. I also want to add, that when I want to listen to my music ONLY and not some stupid suggested track, I can’t get out of it, because I used all of my skips on the DANG SUGGESTED TRACK! Fix that please! I’m sorry if that is all jumbled. But PLEASE fix it. I have seen the other users complaints, and it looks like most of us are having the EXACT same problem. Smh. If you made it this far. FIXX THEMM. My temper is getting lost because of this app, not to be dramatic and all. Have a good day.
Great app, but a few kinks to work out
by Dr. Feeelgood on 2020/12/19 15:18
I would like to start with saying I LOVE THIS APP! I’ve been with Apple Music for quite a long time and I wanted something new. I agree with the user, sadandblujee, that the home page really triggers my OCD. I’m not a super organized person, but that really messes with me. Also, I thunk that it is stupid that the Explicit filter is on songs that have one bad word that isn’t terrible. For example, Moral of The Story featuring Niall Horan says one word, the S word, and at the very end of the song. I feel like that needs to change. But, I agree with the explicit filter in many other ways. My main problem with the filter is that when I see explicit, I think “Wow! This song must be terrible.” It’s annoying to find songs that you love and then have them taken away because of a false sign in front of them. Secondly, is that when you’re looking for songs to add to a playlist, if you add a song, it immediately kicks you out when you’re still looking for options. I would love if I could add a song and then keep browsing. I’m sure other listeners would love it too. Finally, WHAT’S UP WITH THE SIX SKIPS ONLY?? Sometimes people get tired of songs and just want to skip them. It’s annoying to have a limit on that. I hope that you listen to these suggestions. Thank you for your time.
Beat app but...
by intense ligma on 2020/08/27 18:33
I personally love this app but the only part I very much do not like about it is that it will not let you skip songs and now for some reason it will not let me start the song over again this is a very nice app but I would like if it improved it says I have to get premium and I am broke right now LOL and I never really see myself getting premium but I think that’s something that they really have to change about this app it’s very much annoying and some songs will have very bad words and then I won’t be able to skip them because I will have my younger brother near me and I will see songs on my Play list and I will try to reading it but it won’t let me and I very much do not like that too and I do not mind all the ads but they are very long and people get annoyed by them and I have nothing to do about it so that something annoying with it too that’s not a big issue but it’s an issue that I very much don’t like about this app but still I definitely would prefer everybody to get this app which is probably needs to be updated but in conclusion I think this is a very nice app but I would definitely keep it has tons of music on here and that’s something that is awesome about it too and you can create playlist and more P.S thanks for reading this.
great app, but annoying rollback of features in recent update
by PhoenixBirdCity on 2019/06/19 18:49
This is a review about the recent change to "Your Library". Generally these changes are a substantial UI improvement and navigating between various views is far more intuitive now that the notion of a my library home page, with all relevant shortcuts to artists, podcasts,... only available there. the only issues I’ve run into as of yet are 1. the lack of the a-z navigation scroll bar in the Albums section and 2. the lack of a move to front list of recently played albums. re 2. however, I feel this may actually be useful toward encouraging people to diversify their listening, as the design of defaulting to recently played in my experience makes it difficult to spend time finding something I’d like to listen to (either new or archived in my albums section) when my attention is already so contested by everything else. so yeah, I actually like what I said was my second complaint, and thinking back had thought about that before. being able to scroll quickly through the albums seems like a good interaction to keep, however.
3 Simple Fixes to Get Back to 5 Stars
by aproctor8 on 2019/07/03 00:59
1. You need to include an alphabetical quick scroll on the right-hand side of all of your lists, whether it’s your list of playlists, your Artist Library, or inside an actual playlist looking at songs. No one has the time to swipe for 30 seconds to the bottom of their library when they want to listen to The Who. A quick scroll has been a standard on every music app for years now. Get with the times! 2. The artist library page needs a royal update. Or retro-date, rather. I had an older version of the app until yesterday where all artists whose music you had saved into your library displayed on the same library in a neat, clean fashion, regardless of whether or not you Follow them. Now you can only neatly organize those artists whom you Follow, and the rest are left in this awkward, disorganized list of artists with a big “Follow” button next to it. We know what you’re doing guys. If we want to follow an artist, we will. For now, just let us organize our artist library in a straightforward fashion. 3. Another retro-date: put back the option to view your Songs Library. Sometimes you just wanna shuffle your songs. Yeah, the “Liked Songs” playlist is there, and that’s cool and all, but it’s not intuitive when you have “Playlists” and “Artists” listed up top. Put it back.
Please read this.
by PaleWillows on 2019/06/07 09:27
This is getting extremely irritating. I have a family share premium, and whatever I do, (before this update it was fine, actually, the new UI screwed it up,) I can’t play the next song in my playlist. I try restarting my phone, PC, anything, and it keeps screwing up. I’ve tried everything. For real, fix your bugs and don’t put the old bugs into a new update, PLEASE. Not to mention, for non premium users, fix the ad problem. There’s definitely great ideas, but they are executed quite poorly. It’s clear that you want people to pay to do anything. And really, you shouldn’t even be plaguing them with ads if premium has just as many. 6 hours for each skip? There are 24 hours in a day. You’re telling me they only get FOUR SKIPS EVERY 24 HOURS? Seriously, that’s just downright disgusting and rude at that point. If you’re going to torment them like that, at least make it so it’s 2 additional skips per every 12 hours they wait, otherwise it’s just repetitive. Anyways, remember that UI says a lot too. And you should also add the shortcuts back. They were quite useful. And once again, fix the bugs before sending out a new update because it’s annoying. That’s all I have to say for now, and I apologize if it’s jumbled. Please at least TRY and take this into consideration.
Love it but....
by 😂😄😃 on 2020/06/09 00:12
Why I like this app: I like it how you guys have made playlists and let us just pick a song and not just shuffle play well... most of them. Also you don’t have too be premium too use this app ( and please keep it like that because some people don’t have enough money or just don’t wanna waste it on something you should be able too use free). Why I don’t like about this app: first is how you can’t just pick a song from a playlist and not have limited skips, I think that’s kinda weird to not be able to play a song you wanna hear from your playlist. Now I wanna talk about the adds, let’s just say it’s irritating like when your listening too a song and just randomly get this add that says. “Watch this short add for 30 mins of add free music” then when I hit “no thanks” a add plays like do y’all do this to make more money or just to be irritating 😐😑🙄 like c’mom can we just get no adds!?!?!? And just buy premium for better quality, limited skips, and just pick songs from playlists and not wait 1 hour for 6 skips? Like really the only thing you should get premium for is better quality and limited skips! Like can we have some freedom?! Look this just my opinion about this app so don’t get mad😅😅😅
No thanks not worth it
by Loven dis app on 2019/02/09 04:06
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
It’s great but..
by Sailor-Cat on 2020/10/15 21:54
So I started using it because I didn’t need to have a subscription to use it freely unlike Apple Music which I used for awhile then cancelled the subscription I had. It’s kinda confusing like you can’t really save stuff. Also, the 6 skips an hour thing is annoying too! so I understand it’s most likely to keep the app free and all. but when I made my account it said I could listen with infinite skips and ZERO adds for free nothing about the seven day free premium trial! But no no no life isn’t that simple so basically I download it on my phone for the first time (I made my account on a computer so I could listen to music at school also I still had Apple Music at the time of making the account) and then this notification pops up that my seven day free trial has expired. Oh and this is right after I had texted my mom that’s it completely free! But we could have totally avoided this problem if the developers would just flipping fix their stupid app, and not say that with an account you can “listen completely free with no adds and infinite skips” cause that’s a lie. And don’t reply back to me saying “ That’s not true we say something about the trial!” Because then you’ll be lying even more!😡😡😡
feedback (updated)
by gabriela.nr on 2019/07/06 17:35
I already scrolled through enough reviews to where I know I'm not the only one, but yo.. what's up with this new update?? I used to like that when if on the "Your Library" tab you could click on a recently played artist or just an artist from the "Artists" tab and it would take you only to the songs you saved from them, but then if you clicked on them from the "Home" tab it would take you to their main profile page. Now it takes you to their main page even if you click on the artist from the library tab. It's extremely inconvenient, I would like to listen to only the songs I have saved from an artist not all of them. Before the update at least we had the choice. And as dramatic as this sound I have to agree with other people, it really IS enough to make me want to delete the app because of how inconvenient it has actually become to listen to my saved songs. Also the layout is just kinda weird. Well not weird but the one before was definitely better. It had your recently played artists or albums or whatever it is you listen to. And now it's not really like that anymore. Now you gotta go to them from the "Home" tab. I won't lie, it doesn't bother me as much as the first thing I mentioned (PLS CHANGE THAT BACK), but it's for sure something I wouldn't mind if y'all brought back.
Now is unnecessarily complex
by Corndog3135 on 2019/03/02 08:53
The number one thing I hate about this update is the fact that anytime I pick a song, shuffle turns off. It's literally a joke that I have to turn it on every time I pick a new song. What confuses me is the fact that repeat stays on when shuffle turns off. That needs to be fixed. Another thing is the fact that you can't hide the recommended songs that are at the bottom of each playlist. Which tends to always have the same songs on it. Which is quite annoying. Another thing is that when you search for something on a playlist, you cannot slide to the right to add to queue anymore. Which is a major time consumer now. A guy should be able to add to queue in a lot faster time than having to click song options, scroll down, and add to queue, because if there's multiple songs you'd like to add, it should take 10 seconds to add 10 songs. Not 10 seconds to add just one song. One more topic is that I have to go through multiple screens just to go to queue. Whom ever had that idea is considerably unintelligent. It used to be so simple and easy to use. Now it's like you're playing a intelligence and patience game with every user. With this new update, many things became very unnecessarily complex. My patience with this app is going quickly. I hope you fix these format issues.
My music suddenly stops playing and ads
by Susanne Martinez on 2020/12/08 20:39
I’ve been having this issue for awhile and it’s getting on my nerves. Sometimes when I’m listening to my music, it just suddenly stops playing and when I go back to play it again, it plays from the beginning. It’ll suddenly stop playing half way through the song and when I go back to press play again, the music starts from the beginning. It’s been doing that for about a few months now and at first I thought it was maybe my headphones, but just today I wasn’t using them and the music stopped again. I’m getting really tired of this happening. Also, when it does stop and goes to the beginning, I just skip to the next song on my playlist, but then again, it does the same thing to the next song. I want this to stop! It’s super annoying and I just want to listen to my music without any problems. Also, when ads pop up, it gives you the option to skip them and go straight to your music. I always skip them because, to be honest, your ads are super annoying. I just close out of the app and go back in it again to play music. However, sometimes when I do skip the ads, it still plays an ad. Like, it SUPER ANNOYING and I’m getting sick of it. It gives you the option and you decide to play it anyway. Not cool. Please get back to me ASAP!
Please fix this
by RoyalMarz on 2019/11/30 17:57
This app was amazing, loved it so so much. There are few problems though,1. it is very difficult to turn shuffle play on and off and it is difficult to know when it is on and when it isn’t. It would be great if there was a way to fix this. 2. The new update totally screwed the app up, it isn’t worth it anymore, I’m more motivated not get the premium but rather to just go to another app. The library layout is terrible, very difficult to find what you are looking for. Hate it with a passion, and you put a limit to how many songs you can skip without premium? Another issue: when looking through songs, you can’t just pick a song to play and start the playlist from there, it only plays part of the song. Maybe I’m doing some gin wrong there, but it’s terrible now. The ads I don’t really mind, annoying, but fine whatever, the layout in the library/playlist is terrible, the shuffle button is broke, and you can only skip so many songs. And I cannot play songs without shuffle. Please please fix the library layout, skipping thing, and how I can only play songs on shuffle. I don’t even want to bother with this app anymore. Before this update, I had no complaints what so ever. Other than the issues listed, amazing app!
Amazing amount of free music; could use some work on "made for you" playlists
by Aelar Lightbringer on 2020/03/06 23:52
It's very easy to use, and has literally every song I've tried to find (including some extremely obscure ones). I only have two complaints. One is that in the playlists that the app creates for you, it tends to only play songs that you have already listened to multiple times (in shuffle lol) or popular, similar ones. If I follow an artist, there should be an option to mix their more obscure music with the popular stuff. If a playlist is "made for me," it should be able to play whatever it is I like, whether it's a superstar's most popular hit songs, or the most obscure songs released by a guy with 500 listeners. It's not a radio station; it only has to cater to the tastes of one specific person. Secondly, there should be a way to add, if not entire artists, then at least full albums to playlists that you're creating from the app. I follow over fifty artists, and if I like all of their music, I don't want to add all 3000+ of their songs individually. It wouldn't be a hard feature to add, and would make me actually likely to create a playlist or two. Thank you for reading my review!
The Music Just...Stops?!
by OMGalaxy! on 2020/11/22 03:50
So, I love this app so much. I can’t live without it😅 Everything is great! But there is one thing that I have a problem with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this problem but, basically what happens is while I’m listening to a song I like, out of nowhere the music just stops! I don’t close the app at all. Usually this happens when my phone isn’t even on. (Like if the screen timeout goes off.) This problem is so annoying, probably more annoying then the adds not gonna lie. And when the music stops, it start all over again! Once this happened to me while I was done with the song so I had to listen to the whole thing again! This has happened so many times. It even happened more then 4 times while I was writing this review! I know I could just skip the song but I would probably run out of skips because I don’t have premium. I just want this to be fixed because it’s really annoying. I hope the app developers see this and fix it. Other then that, this apps one of the best ones I have and one of the most used too! Thanks for reading!
Save songs for premium
by Juliana corner on 2019/06/19 02:27
I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
Queued songs don’t work well anymore
by Kadeorade5 on 2020/02/11 17:33
I can’t queue songs anymore. I have to individual click them in the order I want them to play after each individual song ends. It doesn’t matter if I click the triple dot and click add to queue, or if I slide the song to the right to add, it doesn’t work consistently. Sometimes it works, but it has been really bad lately. Also, when the queued songs would work and be added to the list of queued songs, I would move them around in a different order because I would want them to play in a different order than when I queued them. While moving a song that was towards the bottom to the top, it would move, but then not stay where I wanted placed it. The app would then crash or need to be quit in order to be functional. Update: As I was writing this I just tried queuing some songs and it worked. I only queued one song at a time. The song doesn’t appear in the queued list though, so it makes me think it doesn’t work when I queue. Please make sure this works. I really love this app! Thanks for all of your hard work!
New update is frustrating!
by jc_248 on 2019/06/20 20:22
Been a loyal premium user for yeaaaaars and never have felt the need to change streaming platforms. However, the new differentiation between saved songs, albums, and artists is incredibly frustrating. If I unsave an album, all the songs are still saved (it just won’t show up in the album section). If I save a new single that is released, I have save the song and the “album” separately to get them to come up on both lists. On top of that, the artist page only shows who you follow, and it’s not like I even keep track of who’s music is saved on my phone (I’m close to 3000 songs). I like to go to my most recent songs or most recent albums to set up playlists or my queue for a drive in the car, or maybe I want to shuffle all the songs I’ve saved by one artist because I’m in that mood. If I don’t want to play one album specifically, I can’t do that... and shuffling the artist page just isn’t the same. Unless there is some streamlining of this new system somehow to make this less obnoxious, I would MUCH rather go back to the old version. I don’t mind aesthetic/menu changes, but this makes using the app how I like much harder. Please help! I don’t want to have to switch to Apple!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
no letter scrolling in liked songs
by Stonegen on 2020/03/08 21:00
i like pretty much everything about this app except for one thing: no letter scrolling in liked songs. in pages such as your artists and albums there is a scroll bar on the side that allows you to instantly go to a specific letter that the title starts with. however this feature is not in the liked songs. i think this feature is WAY more important in liked songs where you have over 1,000+ things saved whereas in your albums and artists where you'll have MAYBE 100+ things saved. what's weird is that this feature used to exist. it was very useful when you wanted to listen to a song quickly or wanted to add it to your queue. and then in one of the updates it was just removed for absolutely no reason. why do app developers always remove useful features and make apps worse for no reason? do they WANT their app to be worse or something? i feel like this is a very simple feature that they could've just kept in but then they just randomly make the app harder to use. i think many people would greatly appreciate if this small but EXTREMELY useful feature was added back.
Shuffle play only for people with the free plan... really?!?!!
by Zack_SillyBoi735 on 2020/02/07 02:25
I really do like this app and it’s cool music but I have one problem with it. People that don’t have a premium membership (have a free plan) are only able to play songs by shuffle playing. You use to be able to choose whatever song you would want to listen to on your playlist and you could shuffle play too but now you are only able to shuffle play if you don’t have the premium membership, and also, when I tap on the list of all of my songs in my playlist and I find a song that I want to play, it only plays a preview of the song. I think the shuffle play is kinda dumb because whenever I shuffle play it and my last song on my playlist stops playing (because the song is over) it moves on to a new song that I haven’t added to my playlist and whenever I hit the button that says “Shuffle Play” it controls if the song is paused or playing. I tried exiting out and reopening the app but the song is still there and acts as if it’s in my playlist. I would give this app 5 stars if it weren’t for the shuffle play only thing. Please change it so that people that don’t have a premium membership can listen to whatever songs they’d like too. Thanks for listen and have a good day.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Why not higher?

This app used to be the highest of my phone but with every update the layout of the app gets worse and worse. The current layout of just playlist is so inconvenient as opposed to the previous one where it would have your most recently played music laid out. The moving of the settings to the home screen makes changing the EQ and sound quality such a burden in comparison to what it was. Also I used to be able to go under the artist tab and even able to listen to all the songs I have saved from the artist specifically but now if I go I see ALL of the songs instead of the the saved despite being able to do that before. These last few updates have been rather reductive and if they continue to degrade I WILL find another app to use for my music. I highly recommend the company roll back some of its cosmetic changes to the app because they ARENT good changes. And also return some of the practical functions the app used to have like being able to listen and shuffle to specific saved song by artist instead of having to make an entire playlist just to be able to listen To one artist or one album.
Truthfully the truth🤔
by hounest anna (on ah) on 2019/04/17 03:18
I think it’s ok. I wouldn’t recommend it though. What the app tells you your getting is that you have the music you want on easy command with minimal adds. Sounds nice huh? Well if this is there idea of music on command and “minimal” adds, I think they need to update their description to the truth. What your getting is a play list made of things with the same genre as you like, things you add, and oh, a billion different songs that have nothing to do with what you like! And the whole “just press the skip button”, you only get 6 per hour. You want to listen to uninterrupted music, well look further because with a 30 second to 1 minute long add every 2 songs you’ll regret it! Now all this can be solved by purchasing the premium option. Or can it? On my friends phone she purchase the premium option and a day later we got an add about grocery outlet bargen market. Now there are some nice things about it. Such as being able to have your phone off and still be able to listen, I love that. And being able to manage your account easily. But that’s it. I got a ratio of 2 goods per 5 bads. Thanks for listening to the whole review. It’s still better than you tube music 🎵😊
what’s with the new way of categorizing saved music?
by tessssssssssssssssssssss on 2019/07/03 16:32
when i save an individual song, i still want that song to be FINDABLE. if i wanted to put it into a playlist with thousands of songs, id do that. but with the previous versions of the app, you could find ANY saved album under the albums category. even if i just have one or two songs saved from an album, i want it to be there! because otherwise it’s just lost in a sea of thousands of individually saved songs. with the previous versions, you could filter out entire albums if you CHOSE to, but now that’s the default. i have no clue why yall keep making updates that antagonize your loyal users. it’s one thing to change up the design or add cool new features or fix existing issues, but it’s another to just remove an entire means of categorizing music??? and, for what reason? out of an assumption that people who save individual songs only want to listen to their music on shuffle, and never would want to actually be able to find their liked songs in a functional way? it’s stupid. please make it so that all liked music is represented under the albums category again, even if the entire album isn’t saved. it’s really annoying to see HUNDREDS of albums disappear from that category just because i only saved some songs from them.
iPhone XR Update is horrible
by John1681 on 2019/03/15 00:17
Last week, the XR received an update that essentially broke the experience for me. All of my saved artists are no longer there, and my “Artists” tab only shows artists I’ve “followed,” and takes me to the artists’ page and not the albums or songs I have saved. The interface is completely different. I chatted on their website with support for over two hours, only to have the person tell me that the feature I have used every day for years never existed . This is a basic function since the inception of the MP3 player. I have been a premium subscriber for more than 5 years, and this has made me seriously consider other streaming services. I have over 10,000 songs that I’ve saved or “liked” over the years, and to only be able to sort by album or song is terrible. Not to mention, BEFORE the update, it was a pain to navigate the Artists page because there is no scroll bar or alphabet to the side to help you navigate - you would have to scroll past hundreds of artists to get to the one you wanted if you wanted to listen to a band that started with “T.” This doesn’t seem to be a problem on any other iPhones, but the latest update affected my desktop app on my work computer, as well. When this is fixed, I’d gladly adjust my review back to 5 stars.
It’s a great app, but the update is making me angry!
by Puyopie :3 on 2019/04/21 03:31
The idea of the app is great, but... I have 3 complaints. The first would be that it’s excruciatingly irritating when I just want to listen to a few specific songs on a little playlist, and then it automatically adds some songs I don’t want to listen to. I mean, seriously?! I had no freaking complaints at all about the app before this. I just want to be able to listen to exactly what I want, exactly when I want to. I understand that maybe some people don’t find this very annoying, but, I do. So, if you made it to where you could turn off the automatically adding songs in settings, then, that would be wonderful. My second complaint is that only having shuffle play vexes me. I just want to listen to whatever I want and not be bothered by anything else (besides ads, I will tolerate those and I know that you need them in order to make money). Anything else as in songs I don’t want to hear. My third and final complaint is that I miss being able to play 1 song over and over again. That’s all I’ve got. And, my rating might seem a little harsh for something so trivial, but, that’s just how annoyed I am about this. So, if you could just please fix all of this in your next update, that would be much appreciated!
Liked tracks PLEASE READ THIS AND FIX THIS
by Daboo1 on 2019/06/29 18:13
I thought I liked the new update until I tried to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks (used to be saved tracks until the update). Now, every time I search an artist in my liked tracks and I try to shuffle, it goes to random artists when I specifically search one particular artists name. I don’t like that it’s treating the liked tracks like a playlist. I always like to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks including their features but now I can’t!! Please fix this. How else am I supposed to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks?? There is no way I’m creating a playlist from my liked tracks for each artist. I used to be able to go to my liked tracks, search in somebody’s name and it would filter to the list of only that person and their features and I could keep shuffling through and it was stay on that artist. Now when I do that and try to shuffle it doesn’t stick and it pulls in the whole library of liked tracks which I don’t want!!!!! I see that if you follow an artist it up pulls all of their songs you have liked into a playlist but It doesn’t include the songs they’re featured on!!!! Please fix this, this is enough to make me switch platforms.
**edit** Update needs to be retconned **edit**
by Mark.J.Myers 1st on 2020/06/13 07:42
They brought back the alphabet search feature in liked songs. If they bring back the old “artists” filter function where it lets you click on the artist and shows only the songs saved, by album this app will be a 5/5, but the side bar function immediately makes this app fun to use again. This update took away some basic functions that made the app convenient and easier to use. The letter based scroll in “liked songs” was an easy way to find certain songs I was looking for without having to either swipe until I find the song, or type out the song name until I found it. I also can’t go into an artists songs I have saved anymore. So if I want to listen to them I have to again search them and shuffle every song they have made. This just elongates the process while also making it inferior to its predecessor. The changes to the app recently have felt rushed, Ill advised, and with no thought towards consumers. I can’t imagine I’ll be using this app much longer if their goal is to take away basic functions while making the app a complete garbage fire.
App is nearly worthless unless you organize your music through playlists alone.
by Tim40017384@6027288 on 2019/06/27 18:23
Previous updates ruined the organization of albums. Now the most recent update has eliminated organization of your music by artist. Also instead of having a ‘liked songs’ library, it is now a playlist called ‘liked songs’. That’s not detrimental but it seems mighty dumb and pointless. My biggest gripe is with the ruining of the artists library tab. Instead of showing artists you have music saved from, it shows artists you follow (i don't follow any because it seems redundant to both save an artist’s music AND follow them around). Below your followed artists, it has recommended artists based on what you listen to but even if you select those, it will play songs by the artist that you haven't saved. So now it seems that the only way to listen to only the songs you like from a specific artist without the songs you didn't save is to create a playlist with those songs alone. Entirely defeating the purpose of any part of this app other than playlists. I dont really listen to music by playlists, i prefer to listen by artist (not every song by the artist, just the songs by the artist i like) so this app is pretty useless at this point.
THANK YOU 🙏

Needs improvement, overall good
by cupcakego on 2020/11/30 06:08
Okay, so this is a great app if you’re a normal person that only has around fifteen or so playlists. But I’m not normal and i like to make loads if playlists and then i need to delete them. I think a really good feature you could add to this app is a delete button on the playlists tab. It would help with being able to select a mass number of playlists to easily delete. It would also be good to have a similar feature with adding songs. If there were a button that allowed you to add the same song to multiple playlists at once, instead of having to go through each playlist and add the song individually. Finally, it would be nice if you could add a way to view the amount of streams an album has, or make it easier to see. A group of people including me are trying to get an album to a certain number of streams, and I can’t view the number, although i think other people can, so if you could make the streams a bit easier to access that would be nice. Overall great app, needs improvements though ;)
Glitchy
by SAT9917 on 2020/01/17 14:09
Though I do like this app a lot I have issues with it glitching on a regular basis. The “tap now to watch a short video for 30 mins of ad free music” link doesn’t always work. Or yesterday I watched the ad then proceeded to hear two more ads right after, heard two songs, then three more adds. I get that I have the free version and I’m fine with the adds once in awhile but if you’re going to say do this thing to not hear ads then play them anyway, that’s misleading and makes me not want to use this app. Also, on occasion songs with just stop playing in the middle. The screen says it’s playing, but it isn’t. Only way to fix that is to exit out of the app then reopen. Super inconvenient when listening in the shower.... **edit: this has happened many times now where I listen to the ad that’s supposed to give me 30 mins without ads then proceeds to play multiple ads back to back then a song then 4 more ads. ***edit: it’s also frustrating when the listen to this ad and get 30 mins of ad free comes up and you click the link and it doesn’t let you click it. What’s up with that? It says it’s not supported on this device or something?
Update Tanked User Experience
by Guilicious on 2019/06/19 22:14
“Recently played” was a great feature for people who only listen to albums and not playlists. Once you have a hundred or so artists, hundreds of albums, and thousands of songs in your library rooting through them on a daily basis is untenable. Previously I could just see the last 20 or so albums I played in an easy to use screen that was basically the landing pad for “your library”. This was basically what I used to decide what to listen to on a daily basis. Aside from being moved it now uses a large tile format that requires much more scrolling for the same information. Really inconvenient when im driving and trying to change albums. Most importantly though it cant be edited. So now if I listen to 4 or 5 one offs I can’t delete them to keep my most favored albums in tact. I have to wait for them t roll off and can never retrieve the albums they bumped from the list. So what was previously a mostly automated process had now become something I will have to track manually, which makes me want to cancel the service.
I like it but
by ndjejsjs on 2020/07/25 07:07
I do really like the app, because i can listen to some songs without having to somehow pay them, and I really like that. It was going very well until I decided to press the shuffle play button a few times ,because I was kinda curious, and it just messed up my playlist of liked songs. For example, on of the songs I liked was called “Gone Forever”, and while playing this song with I didn’t have a problem with it, it’s just let’s me play the whole song. But when I pressed the shuffle play button, it’s doesn't let me play the song, it just plays a few seconds of it then goes to the different song. And it’s not just one song, three or more songs are like that. Playing with other songs the app provided me however did work until I was skipping the songs, wanting to know if it can play “gone forever”, but couldn’t get to it because of the premium. So I tried that again but it didn’t work this time. I don’t know how to fix this and I tried looked how to fix this but there wasn’t a clear answer. I hope you see this message and hope that you can somehow help me on this
Here’s the thing...
by okayyrosee on 2019/06/30 06:19
I LOVE THIS APP. Seriously such an amazing app to use to listen to music of all types. I love how it personalizes playlists for you based on what you’ve been listening to, what’s on your rotation. I love creating playlists and finding songs that are recommended for me. However, the new interface is not great. I really liked how the platform looked before the most recent update. Now my songs are not in alphabetical order (making it hard to look for a song to play without searching the song, which means it won’t continue with my library after that song I searched), I can’t seem to find the specific section for radio listening (which could be my own stupidity but still help please), I also feel like my personalization either disappeared or changed. For whatever reason, it is playing songs in my library that I either rarely listen to or it’s not catching onto the vibe I’m going for. For example, It used to play country songs more than other genres if it noticed I was listening to more country than other stuff. Now it just seems all over the place. Love the app, just not the new update.
Great app, has one big problem
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:49
This a a really great music streaming app. I have a free account and use this app all the time. My one peeve is the "Similar songs" feature (or problem, depending on where you come from). I listen to a very set group of songs, because there is some music out there that I think is a little crude. Yes, I have the "no explicit songs" feature turned on, but I'm pretty strict with what I like. I don't like how when I listen to an album, the app will start to play songs from some totally different band. I look through what songs are in the album, and the one that's playing is not on the list. If I want to find new music I'll go look for it. I don't want to be doing my schoolwork, listening to songs that help me stay focused, and all of a sudden get distracted by wondering what the heck this song is. I have the "Don't play other songs when album is finished" set to 'on', but this is coming smack within the middle of the album. I haven't listened to all the songs yet. If you guys can fix this "playing suggested track" problem, this would be a hands down five-star app. But the suggested tracks are really that much if a problem, so for now its three stars.
Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!

I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
Downloaded songs always easily deleted. Lots of data used AGAIN to redownload them
by hayn808hunnie on 2019/11/21 17:09
I’m paying $10/month because of the fact you can download the songs and use them offline. But it’s so easy to delete them by touching the “follow/unfollow” button or “download the songs” button. My kids are constantly on the app cause I have their kids songs on them, so they press all kinds of buttons. It pains me that I see all my downloaded songs deleted. I either have to download them at the beginning of the month when I have lots of data; if not, I have to use wi-fi to download them. I had to re-download songs so much times it’s getting to a point where I’m going to find another music app and look for the same offline use feature and get that one if it offers to not have the songs easily deleted. I suggest. Once all the songs you want downloaded is on the phone, have it set-up to where you have to hit a delete button on the song itself to delete it. Or if someone wants to delete the whole playlist, do that on the playlist list. Fix this issue please.
Latest Mobile UI is very unfriendly
by Gloryhound20 on 2019/11/12 13:10
Previous to the most recent update the user interface for the app was great, very easy to navigate with, the buttons were in comforatble positions, and the album art and player were completely out of the way when minimized, now we have a bulky bar on the left side with too much negative space that isn’t being used for anything, which wouldn’t be an issue if you could hide it, which you cant. Now because of this crappy design not only is thumb tapping uncomfortable because you have to reach to the center of the screen instead of just the edge, you straight up can’t thumb tap songs on tablet. I also really miss how easy it was to open the search tab and library when they were just at the bottom of the screen. The service itself is very good, never had issues with streaming quality, downloading songs is awesome, and some of the mixes it suggests are pretty decent given you have listened to enough music for them to determine what you like. UI on mobile should promote a comfortable ui to use from an easy resting position before visual looks, which are more of a desktop luxury.
Love it but miss it
by light.room. on 2019/07/12 09:04
The new update is nice. But I really miss the old version. ESPECIALLY having the alphabet on the side. It helped me whenever I was at a red light and can find a song within 5 seconds. That being said, I have only ever been the ‘Driver Mode’ once. And that was by pure luck. When I looked for it again, I didn’t know how to get back to it. It would be beneficial to have that option more easily accessible. Another feature I miss is having the ‘Recently played’ this was at the bottom half of the ‘Your Library’ screen. Fourth. I’m confused by the Artist Screen. I like that I’m being suggested new artist and have my top ‘listened to’ on the upper half. However, I would like the option to maybe view all of my artist, in alphabetical order or narrow the list of my top listened to. Finally. I am Latina. However, when I recently went on the main ‘Latin’ playlist. I was surprised to find only 11 playlists within. At first I thought my app wasn’t fully loaded. After reopening it, I come to find that that was it. Before, there were countless genre playlists and artist playlists within the Latin mood. What happened to the rest???????
Inconvenient
by Thatrandomcheeseburger on 2019/04/08 16:25
Great music player and I would definitely recommend it, if they didn’t make so difficult to play a single song. If you want to play just one song, chances are, it will play a totally different song that you didn’t want to hear. It has a feature called “extra songs” that add recommended songs to you, which wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t play those songs BEFORE the song you wanted to listen to in the first place. They also add extra songs to your playlists. There is no work around this issue. You can stop all the extra songs one at a time from playing, but it takes forever and if it’s a song from one of your other playlists it’ll delete the song from that playlist as well. You can skip the song, but you only have six skips a day unless you get the premium version, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that you can’t get the premium on the app. Which eliminates the entire point of this app...convenience. This problem would be SO easy to fix, but they deliberately try to make the app inconvenient so you’ll buy the premium version that you can’t get on the app! If you’re looking for a good music player, use ITUNES.
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
So when I first found this app (when it first came out) I thought it was the best in the world 😍. It had features that no other music app did, primarily the ability to listen to your music while offline. I have given rave reviews to numerous friends over the years. I have 2 accounts, 1 free and 1 premium. I hadn’t used my free one in a while and needed to change some settings on a couple playlists. When I signed into my other account, the layout was completely different!! I cannot see the songs in my playlist (as I could previously), I can’t make any changes to my playlists. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO HAVE A PLAYLIST THAT YOU CANNOT EDIT. Please fix this, the layout is not user friendly, it’s cheesy looking and critical settings I was previously able to change are no longer available. I will be in the process of cancelling my premium account as well as telling my other friends with premium accounts about a better app. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can still actually stream music (as do many other FREE music services).
Uh, put the old edit feature back please
by WhiteHawk23 on 2019/03/19 13:52
Absolutely awesome app, been using it for years and I am a music lover so I will use nothing else. However this latest update that changed the edit feature to put you back at the top of your playlist so you have to scroll down to the song you want to delete (for me that’s 250 deep) and then to tap the minus button and have the song instantly disappear- please don’t do that. My eyes can sometimes play tricks on me and I can select the wrong song to delete. With this new feature it’s all too easy to press the wrong song and WHOOP it’s gone and you have to remember what it was and go and find it again. While I’m writing a review, though, can y’all put an option to turn on or off the music video clips that MOVE THE PAUSE AND PLAY BUTTON because when I’m driving I know where that normal button is without looking but y’all move it for random songs. It’s very distracting too to have those video clips on while doing homework but I enjoy having the app open and my phone not locked so I can pick through music quickly without having to navigate through my phone every time.

Cutting out
by angerygay on 2021/01/22 20:12
I love Spotify and have used it for years but recently it’s started to randomly stop playing music when I’m in the middle of listening and nothing I’ve done has fixed the issue. Hopefully they resolve the problem soon!

I downloaded this because my friend has it and requested it to me, I’m also getting annoyed with pandora and the way it works so I decided to give Spotify a shot. But it won’t even let me create an account. I meet the requirements and tried logging in many different ways and many times. Still won’t work. Kinda disappointed that it’s got problems right off the bat.
Only Music App You Need
by orme kid on 2021/01/22 19:59
I’ve used Spotify for over five years and have no complaints. I love this app and the ease of use and continuity makes it one of my favorites. Having my playlists and music library accessible from any device is awesome and I will always recommend it.

Came from Apple Podcast for JRE
by joewarnerky on 2021/01/22 19:56
And I miss Apple platform so much. Spotify doesn’t have there crap together at all with this app. I’ll be halfway through an episode and Spotify app will randomly switch me to most recent episode. Right now the app won’t even play any episode whatsoever just loads forever. I feel bad for other JRE listeners dealing with the same issues after years of perfect quality with Apple.
What a shame joe rogan went to Spotify
by Elon musk baby on 2021/01/22 19:56
I loved to watch his podcast on YouTube but now I barely ever watch it due to five minutes of commercials before every episode. Terrible.

Feature: Spotify does not support Siri on the HomePod speakers. Big: When playing back music in Offline mode, Spotify stops and the app quits.

My favorite music streaming service
by Laurie8807 on 2021/01/22 19:01
Update 1/21/2021: still a Premium User. Loving the personalized playlists in the daily mixes. STILL waiting on the ability to rearrange my playlists in the library. I feel if you can change the order of your songs, you should be able to change the order your lists appear in as well. I hate having to scroll forever to get to the lists I use most often just because I make a new list for an occasion. Previous review: I love Spotify. I’ve been a premium member for a years now and love being able to find the perfect song at the perfect moment. I like the ability to download playlists for offline usage. The only improvement I wish they would add is the ability to rearrange playlists in the library. I’d like to group them by type (workout lists, movie soundtracks/game soundtracks, my kid’s favorites, etc) instead of scrolling forever trying to find a playlist because using the search bar doesn’t always work as I will have named it something different and forget what the name is🙈😅. I’ve tried Pandora, Songza, etc. and Spotify is by far the best I’ve tried.
Day one supporter!
by LitlAngelV on 2021/01/22 19:00
Been supporting Spotify since the first app release always the best from the indie music till now the best of best to listen to all your favs and new favs waiting to be heard! Plus with the 30 min free listen no adds is a major win. Forget pandora when you can Spotify! 🙌🤪✨

Needs updated/glitches
by Mieggs on 2021/01/22 18:01
I like this app however I found some glitches with this app I wish I could add either an artist, album, songs and even copy paste a playlist into custom made playlist it seems like a pain and time process always find an artist album or song to add to playlist then gets kicked off then restart. There was a similar section but it won’t show up anymore. Please update this to make it more user friendly

Forced use of a terrible app
by justinwb on 2021/01/22 17:19
There are so many issues with this app - it’s beyond annoying to be forced to use this app for listen to a podcast because Spotify buys and monopolizes it. At least make the app usable if your going to force us to use it.
Best music choice
by luckey75 on 2021/01/22 17:12
Been with Spotify for quite a while now and I’m always been impressed with the music selection easy use of their app. Hoping soon I I will be able to operate Spotify off my Apple Watch.
Irritated
by Mrgoodbar84 on 2021/01/22 17:09
The way the podcasts r played is stupid u have to select audio only ok fine. But thanks to the fact that I didn’t know I had to put it in offline mode to play downloaded podcast it chose to stream audio and video and wiped my half my data out in ten days that usually takes me a month to use
More songs

Why are there only a handful of songs on each channel?? Seems low for paid service.
Still no option to use Spotify as default music service

The ignorance of Spotify managers on this topic has forced me to cancel our family subscription after 4+ years. I honestly can’t understand why Pandora and Amazon can implement this and Spotify not.

Free Music/Podcasts
by Best game every trust me on 2021/01/22 16:59
This app is great it is free but it gives you a better time if you by Spotify Premium. Even if you don’t get Premium it is still great with 1 ad every 30 minutes and the ad is only 30 seconds. Once again this app is great definitely worth it and I recommend this to you.

Please add a feature where you can block certain artists from being in your home feed. I looked up ONE Japanese death metal song, and I’ve been getting hentai/porn podcasts in my recommended. I no longer can use Spotify on my phone because my family thought I was using it to watch porn. Please add this feature so I can get Spotify back on my phone
**fixed** issues with playing music
by Protms on 2021/01/22 16:46
Hardly have ever had issues in the past but now I can’t even listen to music anymore I’m lucky if I can get through half a song without the music pausing then having to skip the song with all my music downloaded it’s never been an issue and now it’s impossible to enjoy listening to Spotify **deleted and reinstalled the app to fix all the issues**
Play List
by PammySue22 on 2021/01/22 16:46
Please correct that when you minimize to go to another site, the play list stays on the song that is playing and not go to the top of the list. It’s a waste of time to keep scrolling down.

I know they are intended for different purposes, but I much prefer the Apple podcast app. The Spotify app’s UI is a little clunky and the behavior can be inconsistent, especially when coming back to podcast episodes that I have not yet finished.

Spotify doesn’t get me anymore 😩
by ald923 on 2021/01/22 15:38
I used to be so excited for new music fridays and the release radar. Nothing on these playlists reflect what I listen too. I spend more time “hiding” songs than actually listening to things I enjoy. The hide song feature is only for that specific playlist which is annoying. Bring back the dislike button so I can get back to music is actually listen too 👏🏻👏🏻

Amazing 💖
by Pugs3535 on 2021/01/22 15:11
I usually listen to this while doing art or school work, and it plays well, and I can almost always find the songs i want by searching them up and matching lyrics. Yeah you’ll come across a few playlists that other people have made but its usually easy to find things. The aesthetic? No it might not be the best, but if your just searching for music, and adding it to a playlist and looping it, then theres really no reason to look at it. Just use the search, it can find songs based off of lyrics, artists, albums, and song titles. In general its fabulous 😄

Lacks basic features. The 2nd most user unfriendly user interface I’ve used for podcasts. They apparently can’t even handle making an audio only download option for podcasts. Highly recommend using other platforms for podcasts. Would have given zero stars if I could have.

No video for Joe Rogan Podcast!!
by JREfans on 2021/01/22 14:01
So my husband told me about Joe Rogan’s podcast for a while before we actually sat down one day and watched an episode with him and I really liked it. It became something that we did regularly on our days off of work. Well then it became a Spotify exclusive podcast. So we got Spotify, the video will play on our phones, but only audio comes through our tv or fire stick. It’s just really disappointing because it’s just not the same experience, which was a really nice one originally. I really hope you can fix this. I understand it was a good deal for Joe to make and I’m sure anyone else would do the same, but we haven’t been able to watch it since JRE left YouTube. YouTube was simple and worked well. Please fix this so we can enjoy the JRE again. A lot of fans want it, and honestly it’s the only reason I have Spotify.
App not working
by Tra$hTalk on 2021/01/22 13:54
For the past couple of months the app just randomly crashes, won’t play a song through the search bar, or lags when I skip to the next song. If this keeps up I’m switching to Apple Music

Honestly, what more could you ask for. The premium package is a great deal and you’re somehow supporting the artists you love, all while having access to all the music in the world.
Bugs
by 0828663 on 2021/01/22 13:44
Love this app. However, It crashes quite frequently, even with premium. Sometimes I’ll be listening to a song, and out of nowhere the music stops playing and the app closes. Even clearing the cache doesn’t stop it for very long.

Randomly and frequently stops playing songs a few seconds in
by 川saki on 2021/01/22 13:36
Why is this app so buggy? It very frequently and for no apparent reason will stop playing songs two to six seconds in, and the only solution is to either restart the app or skip to the next track.
Please improve the podcast interface
by dan.fisher9 on 2021/01/22 13:27

It’s nice
by ScratchAskedWhy on 2021/01/22 13:26
The app is good. There are a lot of songs And the lag is good. The only problem is Spotify premium. I know they need to promote this. But they ask for you to buy it after every song, I can’t pay that and hearing it after every song is driving me mad. That’s all, thank you for reading my review:)

here we go again
by RGS Rainbow and Affiliates on 2021/01/22 12:51
spotify is really great until it breaks. i don’t exactly have the newest phone, an iPhone6s. but everything else on my phone works perfectly fine. spotify, no matter where i am, will often and repeatedly crash. the app will restart while i’m listening and then the song restarts. i don’t want to listen to the first 2 minutes of it again so i end up skipping it. they need to fix this. i would actually recommend spotify over apple music or soundcloud. apple music is a funny thing because you can play things at will but you do have to pay and there is no free version of it. spotify is also better than pandora because in spotify you can make playlists that won’t play things related to an artist (the only option in pandora). overall spotify is really great but only for new phones. otherwise you might listen to the same song 4-5 times in a row.
Killed Joe rogan
by fgfgfgfgfghf on 2021/01/22 12:51
You guys simply killed the Joe Rogan podcast. Play back time is always wrong and if i dont have service the podcast cuts off right away. And having adds in the middle of the podcast which he didn’t have before is disgusting. Just make it how it was on Apple!!

Good music app/ terrible podcast app
by DonTommisino on 2021/01/22 11:32
The music part of the app is fine, although I prefer Apple Music. Since Rogan went exclusively to Spotify, I have tried switch to using Spotify for my music and podcasts. The podcast feature of Spotify is pretty terrible. An auto episode download feature is podcast app 101 and Spotify doesn’t have it. The app randomly crashes,ends podcasts halfway through,etc. Also, the app doesn’t keep its place where you left off. I’ll stop a podcast, then when I resume it, it starts back up a few minutes before where I left off. Fix these 2 things
Adding songs goes to the bottom
by vinayAlps on 2021/01/22 11:04
THE MOST annoying thing on Spotify is when you add a new song to a playlist you make. IT GOES all the way to the bottom!!!??? If you add a new song IT MEANS you want to listen to that song over and over again and again! So MAKE IT COME TO THE TOP OF THE PLAYLIST PLEASE!
Poor MBA management team
by Clapsforyou on 2021/01/22 10:53
App often doesn’t keep music downloaded. Seems to be a means to prevent potential revenue loses. Family plan means you all have to live under the same roof. A lot of serious corporate issues that make Apple Music far superior. I’m still going to use the app but incredibly disappointed with a company like Spotify for extorting capitalism to the farthest extremes. Let people use your service worry free and be happy you’re a multi million dollar international company. Netflix does, and it’s still profitable. You could learn something from them Spotify.

what is happening to my Spotify
by i hateeee jt on 2021/01/22 07:00
Hello, i love spotify and always use it but all a sudden my music will pause and the app will close as if there was no music playing and it keeps and keeps doing it. Sometimes i cant even get a full song to play without it doing it so i deleted the app multiple times and it still does it. i’m not making another account because i’ve had this one for 3 years and i want to keep it. It also started to block off cuss words sometimes now in the middle of no where that started becoming a thing? Something els is ill have so much songs in my playlist and it wont play then it would constantly play the same songs and not the other ones like what happened to the other songs? it’s like i’m constantly deleting the app for it to work and it’s the only music app i’ll use. Like this app is very good it’s just all a sudden not working anymore ??
Freezing
by Spiderkat on 2021/01/22 06:28

Love, but...
by sadandblujee on 2020/02/08 07:25
Yuh so I love the app. I love the algorithm. I love how easy it is to discover new music. No complaints there. But, I don’t like how the home screen triggers my OCD. It feels cluttered and unorganized. Like an episode of tidying up with marie kondo. There’s too much. It’s become tiring. I’m not a fan of the square icons. Maybe a rounded corner icon would look more aesthetically pleasing. I’m just not vibing with the design of the app anymore. I’d like a more minimal, simple aesthetic to it. Also the podcast tab? I have absolutely nothing for that tab. Why is it there lol. And why get rid of the songs tab? Everyone hated that you got rid of it and changed it to liked songs smh. It was fine the way it was. Y’all have been losing my interest lately. And I’m not gonna front... I explored my options. I hung out with Apple Music for a while. And it was exciting and new. It made a good first impression. The design caught my eye. I was intrigued by the simplistic design and aesthetic of the app. It was fun the first few weeks. But it was difficult finding new music that I liked. I disliked that aspect. So here I am again. Giving you another chance. It’s 2020. New year new me right? Let’s switch things up a little. Try new and exciting things. This is our year to shine!
Lack of options, randomly censored songs
by espeonics on 2021/01/17 02:21
This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with. My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen. Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.
Almost Amazing
by guitarguyct on 2019/11/06 17:20
This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on). My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.
Love it but..

This app is awesome! I love how you can listen to your own music, and share it. But I don’t like how it adds music to your playlist, and won’t let you remove it. I don’t get that I really hope you fix it soon. Also, when I only want to listen to my music it makes me listen to a suggested track that I can’t get out of. What is with that? And, there is too many ads. And only 6 skips per HOUR?! Why? And, when my playlist is making me listen to other songs, I have to go to a different playlist, listen to 1 song in it, come back to my playlist, and there it is. another song I don’t need. I am probably one of those users that will get ignored, but if you are looking at this, congratulations. You get a gold sticker. I wish that the users without premium could get AT LEAST 10 skips and hour. It’s not fair with only 6 per hour. I also want to add, that when I want to listen to my music ONLY and not some stupid suggested track, I can’t get out of it, because I used all of my skips on the DANG SUGGESTED TRACK! Fix that please! I’m sorry if that is all jumbled. But PLEASE fix it. I have seen the other users complaints, and it looks like most of us are having the EXACT same problem. Smh. If you made it this far. FIXX THEMM. My temper is getting lost because of this app, not to be dramatic and all. Have a good day.
Great app, but a few kinks to work out
by Dr. Feeelgood on 2020/12/19 15:18
I would like to start with saying I LOVE THIS APP! I’ve been with Apple Music for quite a long time and I wanted something new. I agree with the user, sadandblujee, that the home page really triggers my OCD. I’m not a super organized person, but that really messes with me. Also, I thunk that it is stupid that the Explicit filter is on songs that have one bad word that isn’t terrible. For example, Moral of The Story featuring Niall Horan says one word, the S word, and at the very end of the song. I feel like that needs to change. But, I agree with the explicit filter in many other ways. My main problem with the filter is that when I see explicit, I think “Wow! This song must be terrible.” It’s annoying to find songs that you love and then have them taken away because of a false sign in front of them. Secondly, is that when you’re looking for songs to add to a playlist, if you add a song, it immediately kicks you out when you’re still looking for options. I would love if I could add a song and then keep browsing. I’m sure other listeners would love it too. Finally, WHAT’S UP WITH THE SIX SKIPS ONLY?? Sometimes people get tired of songs and just want to skip them. It’s annoying to have a limit on that. I hope that you listen to these suggestions. Thank you for your time.
Beat app but...
by intense ligma on 2020/08/27 18:33
I personally love this app but the only part I very much do not like about it is that it will not let you skip songs and now for some reason it will not let me start the song over again this is a very nice app but I would like if it improved it says I have to get premium and I am broke right now LOL and I never really see myself getting premium but I think that’s something that they really have to change about this app it’s very much annoying and some songs will have very bad words and then I won’t be able to skip them because I will have my younger brother near me and I will see songs on my Play list and I will try to reading it but it won’t let me and I very much do not like that too and I do not mind all the ads but they are very long and people get annoyed by them and I have nothing to do about it so that something annoying with it too that’s not a big issue but it’s an issue that I very much don’t like about this app but still I definitely would prefer everybody to get this app which is probably needs to be updated but in conclusion I think this is a very nice app but I would definitely keep it has tons of music on here and that’s something that is awesome about it too and you can create playlist and more P.S thanks for reading this.
great app, but annoying rollback of features in recent update
by PhoenixBirdCity on 2019/06/19 18:49
This is a review about the recent change to "Your Library". Generally these changes are a substantial UI improvement and navigating between various views is far more intuitive now that the notion of a my library home page, with all relevant shortcuts to artists, podcasts,... only available there. the only issues I’ve run into as of yet are 1. the lack of the a-z navigation scroll bar in the Albums section and 2. the lack of a move to front list of recently played albums. re 2. however, I feel this may actually be useful toward encouraging people to diversify their listening, as the design of defaulting to recently played in my experience makes it difficult to spend time finding something I’d like to listen to (either new or archived in my albums section) when my attention is already so contested by everything else. so yeah, I actually like what I said was my second complaint, and thinking back had thought about that before. being able to scroll quickly through the albums seems like a good interaction to keep, however.
3 Simple Fixes to Get Back to 5 Stars
by aproctor8 on 2019/07/03 00:59
1. You need to include an alphabetical quick scroll on the right-hand side of all of your lists, whether it’s your list of playlists, your Artist Library, or inside an actual playlist looking at songs. No one has the time to swipe for 30 seconds to the bottom of their library when they want to listen to The Who. A quick scroll has been a standard on every music app for years now. Get with the times! 2. The artist library page needs a royal update. Or retro-date, rather. I had an older version of the app until yesterday where all artists whose music you had saved into your library displayed on the same library in a neat, clean fashion, regardless of whether or not you Follow them. Now you can only neatly organize those artists whom you Follow, and the rest are left in this awkward, disorganized list of artists with a big “Follow” button next to it. We know what you’re doing guys. If we want to follow an artist, we will. For now, just let us organize our artist library in a straightforward fashion. 3. Another retro-date: put back the option to view your Songs Library. Sometimes you just wanna shuffle your songs. Yeah, the “Liked Songs” playlist is there, and that’s cool and all, but it’s not intuitive when you have “Playlists” and “Artists” listed up top. Put it back.
Please read this.
by PaleWillows on 2019/06/07 09:27
This is getting extremely irritating. I have a family share premium, and whatever I do, (before this update it was fine, actually, the new UI screwed it up,) I can’t play the next song in my playlist. I try restarting my phone, PC, anything, and it keeps screwing up. I’ve tried everything. For real, fix your bugs and don’t put the old bugs into a new update, PLEASE. Not to mention, for non premium users, fix the ad problem. There’s definitely great ideas, but they are executed quite poorly. It’s clear that you want people to pay to do anything. And really, you shouldn’t even be plaguing them with ads if premium has just as many. 6 hours for each skip? There are 24 hours in a day. You’re telling me they only get FOUR SKIPS EVERY 24 HOURS? Seriously, that’s just downright disgusting and rude at that point. If you’re going to torment them like that, at least make it so it’s 2 additional skips per every 12 hours they wait, otherwise it’s just repetitive. Anyways, remember that UI says a lot too. And you should also add the shortcuts back. They were quite useful. And once again, fix the bugs before sending out a new update because it’s annoying. That’s all I have to say for now, and I apologize if it’s jumbled. Please at least TRY and take this into consideration.
Love it but....
by 😂😄😃 on 2020/06/09 00:12
Why I like this app: I like it how you guys have made playlists and let us just pick a song and not just shuffle play well... most of them. Also you don’t have too be premium too use this app ( and please keep it like that because some people don’t have enough money or just don’t wanna waste it on something you should be able too use free). Why I don’t like about this app: first is how you can’t just pick a song from a playlist and not have limited skips, I think that’s kinda weird to not be able to play a song you wanna hear from your playlist. Now I wanna talk about the adds, let’s just say it’s irritating like when your listening too a song and just randomly get this add that says. “Watch this short add for 30 mins of add free music” then when I hit “no thanks” a add plays like do y’all do this to make more money or just to be irritating 😐😑🙄 like c’mom can we just get no adds!?!?!? And just buy premium for better quality, limited skips, and just pick songs from playlists and not wait 1 hour for 6 skips? Like really the only thing you should get premium for is better quality and limited skips! Like can we have some freedom?! Look this just my opinion about this app so don’t get mad😅😅😅
No thanks not worth it
by Loven dis app on 2019/02/09 04:06
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
It’s great but..
by Sailor-Cat on 2020/10/15 21:54
So I started using it because I didn’t need to have a subscription to use it freely unlike Apple Music which I used for awhile then cancelled the subscription I had. It’s kinda confusing like you can’t really save stuff. Also, the 6 skips an hour thing is annoying too! so I understand it’s most likely to keep the app free and all. but when I made my account it said I could listen with infinite skips and ZERO adds for free nothing about the seven day free premium trial! But no no no life isn’t that simple so basically I download it on my phone for the first time (I made my account on a computer so I could listen to music at school also I still had Apple Music at the time of making the account) and then this notification pops up that my seven day free trial has expired. Oh and this is right after I had texted my mom that’s it completely free! But we could have totally avoided this problem if the developers would just flipping fix their stupid app, and not say that with an account you can “listen completely free with no adds and infinite skips” cause that’s a lie. And don’t reply back to me saying “ That’s not true we say something about the trial!” Because then you’ll be lying even more!😡😡😡
feedback (updated)
by gabriela.nr on 2019/07/06 17:35
I already scrolled through enough reviews to where I know I'm not the only one, but yo.. what's up with this new update?? I used to like that when if on the "Your Library" tab you could click on a recently played artist or just an artist from the "Artists" tab and it would take you only to the songs you saved from them, but then if you clicked on them from the "Home" tab it would take you to their main profile page. Now it takes you to their main page even if you click on the artist from the library tab. It's extremely inconvenient, I would like to listen to only the songs I have saved from an artist not all of them. Before the update at least we had the choice. And as dramatic as this sound I have to agree with other people, it really IS enough to make me want to delete the app because of how inconvenient it has actually become to listen to my saved songs. Also the layout is just kinda weird. Well not weird but the one before was definitely better. It had your recently played artists or albums or whatever it is you listen to. And now it's not really like that anymore. Now you gotta go to them from the "Home" tab. I won't lie, it doesn't bother me as much as the first thing I mentioned (PLS CHANGE THAT BACK), but it's for sure something I wouldn't mind if y'all brought back.
Now is unnecessarily complex
by Corndog3135 on 2019/03/02 08:53
The number one thing I hate about this update is the fact that anytime I pick a song, shuffle turns off. It's literally a joke that I have to turn it on every time I pick a new song. What confuses me is the fact that repeat stays on when shuffle turns off. That needs to be fixed. Another thing is the fact that you can't hide the recommended songs that are at the bottom of each playlist. Which tends to always have the same songs on it. Which is quite annoying. Another thing is that when you search for something on a playlist, you cannot slide to the right to add to queue anymore. Which is a major time consumer now. A guy should be able to add to queue in a lot faster time than having to click song options, scroll down, and add to queue, because if there's multiple songs you'd like to add, it should take 10 seconds to add 10 songs. Not 10 seconds to add just one song. One more topic is that I have to go through multiple screens just to go to queue. Whom ever had that idea is considerably unintelligent. It used to be so simple and easy to use. Now it's like you're playing a intelligence and patience game with every user. With this new update, many things became very unnecessarily complex. My patience with this app is going quickly. I hope you fix these format issues.
My music suddenly stops playing and ads
by Susanne Martinez on 2020/12/08 20:39
I’ve been having this issue for awhile and it’s getting on my nerves. Sometimes when I’m listening to my music, it just suddenly stops playing and when I go back to play it again, it plays from the beginning. It’ll suddenly stop playing half way through the song and when I go back to press play again, the music starts from the beginning. It’s been doing that for about a few months now and at first I thought it was maybe my headphones, but just today I wasn’t using them and the music stopped again. I’m getting really tired of this happening. Also, when it does stop and goes to the beginning, I just skip to the next song on my playlist, but then again, it does the same thing to the next song. I want this to stop! It’s super annoying and I just want to listen to my music without any problems. Also, when ads pop up, it gives you the option to skip them and go straight to your music. I always skip them because, to be honest, your ads are super annoying. I just close out of the app and go back in it again to play music. However, sometimes when I do skip the ads, it still plays an ad. Like, it SUPER ANNOYING and I’m getting sick of it. It gives you the option and you decide to play it anyway. Not cool. Please get back to me ASAP!
Please fix this
by RoyalMarz on 2019/11/30 17:57
This app was amazing, loved it so so much. There are few problems though,1. it is very difficult to turn shuffle play on and off and it is difficult to know when it is on and when it isn’t. It would be great if there was a way to fix this. 2. The new update totally screwed the app up, it isn’t worth it anymore, I’m more motivated not get the premium but rather to just go to another app. The library layout is terrible, very difficult to find what you are looking for. Hate it with a passion, and you put a limit to how many songs you can skip without premium? Another issue: when looking through songs, you can’t just pick a song to play and start the playlist from there, it only plays part of the song. Maybe I’m doing some gin wrong there, but it’s terrible now. The ads I don’t really mind, annoying, but fine whatever, the layout in the library/playlist is terrible, the shuffle button is broke, and you can only skip so many songs. And I cannot play songs without shuffle. Please please fix the library layout, skipping thing, and how I can only play songs on shuffle. I don’t even want to bother with this app anymore. Before this update, I had no complaints what so ever. Other than the issues listed, amazing app!
Amazing amount of free music; could use some work on "made for you" playlists
by Aelar Lightbringer on 2020/03/06 23:52
It's very easy to use, and has literally every song I've tried to find (including some extremely obscure ones). I only have two complaints. One is that in the playlists that the app creates for you, it tends to only play songs that you have already listened to multiple times (in shuffle lol) or popular, similar ones. If I follow an artist, there should be an option to mix their more obscure music with the popular stuff. If a playlist is "made for me," it should be able to play whatever it is I like, whether it's a superstar's most popular hit songs, or the most obscure songs released by a guy with 500 listeners. It's not a radio station; it only has to cater to the tastes of one specific person. Secondly, there should be a way to add, if not entire artists, then at least full albums to playlists that you're creating from the app. I follow over fifty artists, and if I like all of their music, I don't want to add all 3000+ of their songs individually. It wouldn't be a hard feature to add, and would make me actually likely to create a playlist or two. Thank you for reading my review!
The Music Just...Stops?!
by OMGalaxy! on 2020/11/22 03:50
So, I love this app so much. I can’t live without it😅 Everything is great! But there is one thing that I have a problem with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this problem but, basically what happens is while I’m listening to a song I like, out of nowhere the music just stops! I don’t close the app at all. Usually this happens when my phone isn’t even on. (Like if the screen timeout goes off.) This problem is so annoying, probably more annoying then the adds not gonna lie. And when the music stops, it start all over again! Once this happened to me while I was done with the song so I had to listen to the whole thing again! This has happened so many times. It even happened more then 4 times while I was writing this review! I know I could just skip the song but I would probably run out of skips because I don’t have premium. I just want this to be fixed because it’s really annoying. I hope the app developers see this and fix it. Other then that, this apps one of the best ones I have and one of the most used too! Thanks for reading!
Save songs for premium
by Juliana corner on 2019/06/19 02:27
I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
Queued songs don’t work well anymore
by Kadeorade5 on 2020/02/11 17:33
I can’t queue songs anymore. I have to individual click them in the order I want them to play after each individual song ends. It doesn’t matter if I click the triple dot and click add to queue, or if I slide the song to the right to add, it doesn’t work consistently. Sometimes it works, but it has been really bad lately. Also, when the queued songs would work and be added to the list of queued songs, I would move them around in a different order because I would want them to play in a different order than when I queued them. While moving a song that was towards the bottom to the top, it would move, but then not stay where I wanted placed it. The app would then crash or need to be quit in order to be functional. Update: As I was writing this I just tried queuing some songs and it worked. I only queued one song at a time. The song doesn’t appear in the queued list though, so it makes me think it doesn’t work when I queue. Please make sure this works. I really love this app! Thanks for all of your hard work!
New update is frustrating!
by jc_248 on 2019/06/20 20:22
Been a loyal premium user for yeaaaaars and never have felt the need to change streaming platforms. However, the new differentiation between saved songs, albums, and artists is incredibly frustrating. If I unsave an album, all the songs are still saved (it just won’t show up in the album section). If I save a new single that is released, I have save the song and the “album” separately to get them to come up on both lists. On top of that, the artist page only shows who you follow, and it’s not like I even keep track of who’s music is saved on my phone (I’m close to 3000 songs). I like to go to my most recent songs or most recent albums to set up playlists or my queue for a drive in the car, or maybe I want to shuffle all the songs I’ve saved by one artist because I’m in that mood. If I don’t want to play one album specifically, I can’t do that... and shuffling the artist page just isn’t the same. Unless there is some streamlining of this new system somehow to make this less obnoxious, I would MUCH rather go back to the old version. I don’t mind aesthetic/menu changes, but this makes using the app how I like much harder. Please help! I don’t want to have to switch to Apple!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
no letter scrolling in liked songs
by Stonegen on 2020/03/08 21:00
i like pretty much everything about this app except for one thing: no letter scrolling in liked songs. in pages such as your artists and albums there is a scroll bar on the side that allows you to instantly go to a specific letter that the title starts with. however this feature is not in the liked songs. i think this feature is WAY more important in liked songs where you have over 1,000+ things saved whereas in your albums and artists where you'll have MAYBE 100+ things saved. what's weird is that this feature used to exist. it was very useful when you wanted to listen to a song quickly or wanted to add it to your queue. and then in one of the updates it was just removed for absolutely no reason. why do app developers always remove useful features and make apps worse for no reason? do they WANT their app to be worse or something? i feel like this is a very simple feature that they could've just kept in but then they just randomly make the app harder to use. i think many people would greatly appreciate if this small but EXTREMELY useful feature was added back.
Shuffle play only for people with the free plan... really?!?!!
by Zack_SillyBoi735 on 2020/02/07 02:25
I really do like this app and it’s cool music but I have one problem with it. People that don’t have a premium membership (have a free plan) are only able to play songs by shuffle playing. You use to be able to choose whatever song you would want to listen to on your playlist and you could shuffle play too but now you are only able to shuffle play if you don’t have the premium membership, and also, when I tap on the list of all of my songs in my playlist and I find a song that I want to play, it only plays a preview of the song. I think the shuffle play is kinda dumb because whenever I shuffle play it and my last song on my playlist stops playing (because the song is over) it moves on to a new song that I haven’t added to my playlist and whenever I hit the button that says “Shuffle Play” it controls if the song is paused or playing. I tried exiting out and reopening the app but the song is still there and acts as if it’s in my playlist. I would give this app 5 stars if it weren’t for the shuffle play only thing. Please change it so that people that don’t have a premium membership can listen to whatever songs they’d like too. Thanks for listen and have a good day.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Why not higher?
by Cmbsax5917Starwarsfan on 2020/01/16 00:27
This app used to be the highest of my phone but with every update the layout of the app gets worse and worse. The current layout of just playlist is so inconvenient as opposed to the previous one where it would have your most recently played music laid out. The moving of the settings to the home screen makes changing the EQ and sound quality such a burden in comparison to what it was. Also I used to be able to go under the artist tab and even able to listen to all the songs I have saved from the artist specifically but now if I go I see ALL of the songs instead of the the saved despite being able to do that before. These last few updates have been rather reductive and if they continue to degrade I WILL find another app to use for my music. I highly recommend the company roll back some of its cosmetic changes to the app because they ARENT good changes. And also return some of the practical functions the app used to have like being able to listen and shuffle to specific saved song by artist instead of having to make an entire playlist just to be able to listen To one artist or one album.
Truthfully the truth🤔
by hounest anna (on ah) on 2019/04/17 03:18
I think it’s ok. I wouldn’t recommend it though. What the app tells you your getting is that you have the music you want on easy command with minimal adds. Sounds nice huh? Well if this is there idea of music on command and “minimal” adds, I think they need to update their description to the truth. What your getting is a play list made of things with the same genre as you like, things you add, and oh, a billion different songs that have nothing to do with what you like! And the whole “just press the skip button”, you only get 6 per hour. You want to listen to uninterrupted music, well look further because with a 30 second to 1 minute long add every 2 songs you’ll regret it! Now all this can be solved by purchasing the premium option. Or can it? On my friends phone she purchase the premium option and a day later we got an add about grocery outlet bargen market. Now there are some nice things about it. Such as being able to have your phone off and still be able to listen, I love that. And being able to manage your account easily. But that’s it. I got a ratio of 2 goods per 5 bads. Thanks for listening to the whole review. It’s still better than you tube music 🎵😊
what’s with the new way of categorizing saved music?
by tessssssssssssssssssssss on 2019/07/03 16:32
when i save an individual song, i still want that song to be FINDABLE. if i wanted to put it into a playlist with thousands of songs, id do that. but with the previous versions of the app, you could find ANY saved album under the albums category. even if i just have one or two songs saved from an album, i want it to be there! because otherwise it’s just lost in a sea of thousands of individually saved songs. with the previous versions, you could filter out entire albums if you CHOSE to, but now that’s the default. i have no clue why yall keep making updates that antagonize your loyal users. it’s one thing to change up the design or add cool new features or fix existing issues, but it’s another to just remove an entire means of categorizing music??? and, for what reason? out of an assumption that people who save individual songs only want to listen to their music on shuffle, and never would want to actually be able to find their liked songs in a functional way? it’s stupid. please make it so that all liked music is represented under the albums category again, even if the entire album isn’t saved. it’s really annoying to see HUNDREDS of albums disappear from that category just because i only saved some songs from them.
iPhone XR Update is horrible
by John1681 on 2019/03/15 00:17
Last week, the XR received an update that essentially broke the experience for me. All of my saved artists are no longer there, and my “Artists” tab only shows artists I’ve “followed,” and takes me to the artists’ page and not the albums or songs I have saved. The interface is completely different. I chatted on their website with support for over two hours, only to have the person tell me that the feature I have used every day for years never existed . This is a basic function since the inception of the MP3 player. I have been a premium subscriber for more than 5 years, and this has made me seriously consider other streaming services. I have over 10,000 songs that I’ve saved or “liked” over the years, and to only be able to sort by album or song is terrible. Not to mention, BEFORE the update, it was a pain to navigate the Artists page because there is no scroll bar or alphabet to the side to help you navigate - you would have to scroll past hundreds of artists to get to the one you wanted if you wanted to listen to a band that started with “T.” This doesn’t seem to be a problem on any other iPhones, but the latest update affected my desktop app on my work computer, as well. When this is fixed, I’d gladly adjust my review back to 5 stars.
It’s a great app, but the update is making me angry!
by Puyopie :3 on 2019/04/21 03:31
The idea of the app is great, but... I have 3 complaints. The first would be that it’s excruciatingly irritating when I just want to listen to a few specific songs on a little playlist, and then it automatically adds some songs I don’t want to listen to. I mean, seriously?! I had no freaking complaints at all about the app before this. I just want to be able to listen to exactly what I want, exactly when I want to. I understand that maybe some people don’t find this very annoying, but, I do. So, if you made it to where you could turn off the automatically adding songs in settings, then, that would be wonderful. My second complaint is that only having shuffle play vexes me. I just want to listen to whatever I want and not be bothered by anything else (besides ads, I will tolerate those and I know that you need them in order to make money). Anything else as in songs I don’t want to hear. My third and final complaint is that I miss being able to play 1 song over and over again. That’s all I’ve got. And, my rating might seem a little harsh for something so trivial, but, that’s just how annoyed I am about this. So, if you could just please fix all of this in your next update, that would be much appreciated!
Liked tracks PLEASE READ THIS AND FIX THIS
by Daboo1 on 2019/06/29 18:13
I thought I liked the new update until I tried to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks (used to be saved tracks until the update). Now, every time I search an artist in my liked tracks and I try to shuffle, it goes to random artists when I specifically search one particular artists name. I don’t like that it’s treating the liked tracks like a playlist. I always like to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks including their features but now I can’t!! Please fix this. How else am I supposed to listen to specific artists in my liked tracks?? There is no way I’m creating a playlist from my liked tracks for each artist. I used to be able to go to my liked tracks, search in somebody’s name and it would filter to the list of only that person and their features and I could keep shuffling through and it was stay on that artist. Now when I do that and try to shuffle it doesn’t stick and it pulls in the whole library of liked tracks which I don’t want!!!!! I see that if you follow an artist it up pulls all of their songs you have liked into a playlist but It doesn’t include the songs they’re featured on!!!! Please fix this, this is enough to make me switch platforms.
**edit** Update needs to be retconned **edit**
by Mark.J.Myers 1st on 2020/06/13 07:42
They brought back the alphabet search feature in liked songs. If they bring back the old “artists” filter function where it lets you click on the artist and shows only the songs saved, by album this app will be a 5/5, but the side bar function immediately makes this app fun to use again. This update took away some basic functions that made the app convenient and easier to use. The letter based scroll in “liked songs” was an easy way to find certain songs I was looking for without having to either swipe until I find the song, or type out the song name until I found it. I also can’t go into an artists songs I have saved anymore. So if I want to listen to them I have to again search them and shuffle every song they have made. This just elongates the process while also making it inferior to its predecessor. The changes to the app recently have felt rushed, Ill advised, and with no thought towards consumers. I can’t imagine I’ll be using this app much longer if their goal is to take away basic functions while making the app a complete garbage fire.
App is nearly worthless unless you organize your music through playlists alone.
by Tim40017384@6027288 on 2019/06/27 18:23
Previous updates ruined the organization of albums. Now the most recent update has eliminated organization of your music by artist. Also instead of having a ‘liked songs’ library, it is now a playlist called ‘liked songs’. That’s not detrimental but it seems mighty dumb and pointless. My biggest gripe is with the ruining of the artists library tab. Instead of showing artists you have music saved from, it shows artists you follow (i don't follow any because it seems redundant to both save an artist’s music AND follow them around). Below your followed artists, it has recommended artists based on what you listen to but even if you select those, it will play songs by the artist that you haven't saved. So now it seems that the only way to listen to only the songs you like from a specific artist without the songs you didn't save is to create a playlist with those songs alone. Entirely defeating the purpose of any part of this app other than playlists. I dont really listen to music by playlists, i prefer to listen by artist (not every song by the artist, just the songs by the artist i like) so this app is pretty useless at this point.
THANK YOU 🙏
by ggshrggvfgf on 2020/07/24 08:37

Needs improvement, overall good
by cupcakego on 2020/11/30 06:08
Okay, so this is a great app if you’re a normal person that only has around fifteen or so playlists. But I’m not normal and i like to make loads if playlists and then i need to delete them. I think a really good feature you could add to this app is a delete button on the playlists tab. It would help with being able to select a mass number of playlists to easily delete. It would also be good to have a similar feature with adding songs. If there were a button that allowed you to add the same song to multiple playlists at once, instead of having to go through each playlist and add the song individually. Finally, it would be nice if you could add a way to view the amount of streams an album has, or make it easier to see. A group of people including me are trying to get an album to a certain number of streams, and I can’t view the number, although i think other people can, so if you could make the streams a bit easier to access that would be nice. Overall great app, needs improvements though ;)
Glitchy
by SAT9917 on 2020/01/17 14:09
Though I do like this app a lot I have issues with it glitching on a regular basis. The “tap now to watch a short video for 30 mins of ad free music” link doesn’t always work. Or yesterday I watched the ad then proceeded to hear two more ads right after, heard two songs, then three more adds. I get that I have the free version and I’m fine with the adds once in awhile but if you’re going to say do this thing to not hear ads then play them anyway, that’s misleading and makes me not want to use this app. Also, on occasion songs with just stop playing in the middle. The screen says it’s playing, but it isn’t. Only way to fix that is to exit out of the app then reopen. Super inconvenient when listening in the shower.... **edit: this has happened many times now where I listen to the ad that’s supposed to give me 30 mins without ads then proceeds to play multiple ads back to back then a song then 4 more ads. ***edit: it’s also frustrating when the listen to this ad and get 30 mins of ad free comes up and you click the link and it doesn’t let you click it. What’s up with that? It says it’s not supported on this device or something?
Update Tanked User Experience
by Guilicious on 2019/06/19 22:14
“Recently played” was a great feature for people who only listen to albums and not playlists. Once you have a hundred or so artists, hundreds of albums, and thousands of songs in your library rooting through them on a daily basis is untenable. Previously I could just see the last 20 or so albums I played in an easy to use screen that was basically the landing pad for “your library”. This was basically what I used to decide what to listen to on a daily basis. Aside from being moved it now uses a large tile format that requires much more scrolling for the same information. Really inconvenient when im driving and trying to change albums. Most importantly though it cant be edited. So now if I listen to 4 or 5 one offs I can’t delete them to keep my most favored albums in tact. I have to wait for them t roll off and can never retrieve the albums they bumped from the list. So what was previously a mostly automated process had now become something I will have to track manually, which makes me want to cancel the service.
I like it but
by ndjejsjs on 2020/07/25 07:07
I do really like the app, because i can listen to some songs without having to somehow pay them, and I really like that. It was going very well until I decided to press the shuffle play button a few times ,because I was kinda curious, and it just messed up my playlist of liked songs. For example, on of the songs I liked was called “Gone Forever”, and while playing this song with I didn’t have a problem with it, it’s just let’s me play the whole song. But when I pressed the shuffle play button, it’s doesn't let me play the song, it just plays a few seconds of it then goes to the different song. And it’s not just one song, three or more songs are like that. Playing with other songs the app provided me however did work until I was skipping the songs, wanting to know if it can play “gone forever”, but couldn’t get to it because of the premium. So I tried that again but it didn’t work this time. I don’t know how to fix this and I tried looked how to fix this but there wasn’t a clear answer. I hope you see this message and hope that you can somehow help me on this
Here’s the thing...
by okayyrosee on 2019/06/30 06:19
I LOVE THIS APP. Seriously such an amazing app to use to listen to music of all types. I love how it personalizes playlists for you based on what you’ve been listening to, what’s on your rotation. I love creating playlists and finding songs that are recommended for me. However, the new interface is not great. I really liked how the platform looked before the most recent update. Now my songs are not in alphabetical order (making it hard to look for a song to play without searching the song, which means it won’t continue with my library after that song I searched), I can’t seem to find the specific section for radio listening (which could be my own stupidity but still help please), I also feel like my personalization either disappeared or changed. For whatever reason, it is playing songs in my library that I either rarely listen to or it’s not catching onto the vibe I’m going for. For example, It used to play country songs more than other genres if it noticed I was listening to more country than other stuff. Now it just seems all over the place. Love the app, just not the new update.
Great app, has one big problem
by TrueReviewer02 on 2020/05/14 14:49
This a a really great music streaming app. I have a free account and use this app all the time. My one peeve is the "Similar songs" feature (or problem, depending on where you come from). I listen to a very set group of songs, because there is some music out there that I think is a little crude. Yes, I have the "no explicit songs" feature turned on, but I'm pretty strict with what I like. I don't like how when I listen to an album, the app will start to play songs from some totally different band. I look through what songs are in the album, and the one that's playing is not on the list. If I want to find new music I'll go look for it. I don't want to be doing my schoolwork, listening to songs that help me stay focused, and all of a sudden get distracted by wondering what the heck this song is. I have the "Don't play other songs when album is finished" set to 'on', but this is coming smack within the middle of the album. I haven't listened to all the songs yet. If you guys can fix this "playing suggested track" problem, this would be a hands down five-star app. But the suggested tracks are really that much if a problem, so for now its three stars.
Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!

I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
Downloaded songs always easily deleted. Lots of data used AGAIN to redownload them
by hayn808hunnie on 2019/11/21 17:09
I’m paying $10/month because of the fact you can download the songs and use them offline. But it’s so easy to delete them by touching the “follow/unfollow” button or “download the songs” button. My kids are constantly on the app cause I have their kids songs on them, so they press all kinds of buttons. It pains me that I see all my downloaded songs deleted. I either have to download them at the beginning of the month when I have lots of data; if not, I have to use wi-fi to download them. I had to re-download songs so much times it’s getting to a point where I’m going to find another music app and look for the same offline use feature and get that one if it offers to not have the songs easily deleted. I suggest. Once all the songs you want downloaded is on the phone, have it set-up to where you have to hit a delete button on the song itself to delete it. Or if someone wants to delete the whole playlist, do that on the playlist list. Fix this issue please.
Latest Mobile UI is very unfriendly
by Gloryhound20 on 2019/11/12 13:10
Previous to the most recent update the user interface for the app was great, very easy to navigate with, the buttons were in comforatble positions, and the album art and player were completely out of the way when minimized, now we have a bulky bar on the left side with too much negative space that isn’t being used for anything, which wouldn’t be an issue if you could hide it, which you cant. Now because of this crappy design not only is thumb tapping uncomfortable because you have to reach to the center of the screen instead of just the edge, you straight up can’t thumb tap songs on tablet. I also really miss how easy it was to open the search tab and library when they were just at the bottom of the screen. The service itself is very good, never had issues with streaming quality, downloading songs is awesome, and some of the mixes it suggests are pretty decent given you have listened to enough music for them to determine what you like. UI on mobile should promote a comfortable ui to use from an easy resting position before visual looks, which are more of a desktop luxury.
Love it but miss it
by light.room. on 2019/07/12 09:04
The new update is nice. But I really miss the old version. ESPECIALLY having the alphabet on the side. It helped me whenever I was at a red light and can find a song within 5 seconds. That being said, I have only ever been the ‘Driver Mode’ once. And that was by pure luck. When I looked for it again, I didn’t know how to get back to it. It would be beneficial to have that option more easily accessible. Another feature I miss is having the ‘Recently played’ this was at the bottom half of the ‘Your Library’ screen. Fourth. I’m confused by the Artist Screen. I like that I’m being suggested new artist and have my top ‘listened to’ on the upper half. However, I would like the option to maybe view all of my artist, in alphabetical order or narrow the list of my top listened to. Finally. I am Latina. However, when I recently went on the main ‘Latin’ playlist. I was surprised to find only 11 playlists within. At first I thought my app wasn’t fully loaded. After reopening it, I come to find that that was it. Before, there were countless genre playlists and artist playlists within the Latin mood. What happened to the rest???????
Inconvenient
by Thatrandomcheeseburger on 2019/04/08 16:25
Great music player and I would definitely recommend it, if they didn’t make so difficult to play a single song. If you want to play just one song, chances are, it will play a totally different song that you didn’t want to hear. It has a feature called “extra songs” that add recommended songs to you, which wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t play those songs BEFORE the song you wanted to listen to in the first place. They also add extra songs to your playlists. There is no work around this issue. You can stop all the extra songs one at a time from playing, but it takes forever and if it’s a song from one of your other playlists it’ll delete the song from that playlist as well. You can skip the song, but you only have six skips a day unless you get the premium version, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that you can’t get the premium on the app. Which eliminates the entire point of this app...convenience. This problem would be SO easy to fix, but they deliberately try to make the app inconvenient so you’ll buy the premium version that you can’t get on the app! If you’re looking for a good music player, use ITUNES.
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
So when I first found this app (when it first came out) I thought it was the best in the world 😍. It had features that no other music app did, primarily the ability to listen to your music while offline. I have given rave reviews to numerous friends over the years. I have 2 accounts, 1 free and 1 premium. I hadn’t used my free one in a while and needed to change some settings on a couple playlists. When I signed into my other account, the layout was completely different!! I cannot see the songs in my playlist (as I could previously), I can’t make any changes to my playlists. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO HAVE A PLAYLIST THAT YOU CANNOT EDIT. Please fix this, the layout is not user friendly, it’s cheesy looking and critical settings I was previously able to change are no longer available. I will be in the process of cancelling my premium account as well as telling my other friends with premium accounts about a better app. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can still actually stream music (as do many other FREE music services).
Uh, put the old edit feature back please
by WhiteHawk23 on 2019/03/19 13:52
Absolutely awesome app, been using it for years and I am a music lover so I will use nothing else. However this latest update that changed the edit feature to put you back at the top of your playlist so you have to scroll down to the song you want to delete (for me that’s 250 deep) and then to tap the minus button and have the song instantly disappear- please don’t do that. My eyes can sometimes play tricks on me and I can select the wrong song to delete. With this new feature it’s all too easy to press the wrong song and WHOOP it’s gone and you have to remember what it was and go and find it again. While I’m writing a review, though, can y’all put an option to turn on or off the music video clips that MOVE THE PAUSE AND PLAY BUTTON because when I’m driving I know where that normal button is without looking but y’all move it for random songs. It’s very distracting too to have those video clips on while doing homework but I enjoy having the app open and my phone not locked so I can pick through music quickly without having to navigate through my phone every time.
