YouTube Music for Negative User Reviews

The new update is terrible.Bring it back to when it was free of your choice to play whatever you wanted! We didn’t really care for ads but I guess that’s what caused this update for money huh :/.Version: 4.53

Quality of life here is utter garbageIt’s a functional app. That’s the best I can say. Music is stored on here and you can listen to it. The library is about the standard with the bonus of being able to save videos for the tracks you can’t find. But the good stuff ends there. Opening the app brings you to a home with your playlists. Psyche. It takes you a page featuring “listen again” and auto-generated playlists. You have to click to go to your library, then select playlists or albums from there. It’s not the end of the world but it gets tedious. Speaking of albums, it only registers you as having the album if you save the ENTIRE album. If you just have one song it won’t show up. The biggest offender is how playlists work. In them you can search for tracks to add or take auto-generated suggestions. However you CANNOT simply go through your library and check every song you want to add. You have to add every single song manually. And it’s more tedious than you can imagine..Version: 5.23

Very frustrating app if you're coming from google playThey don't have as many clean versions of songs. Google play music had two versions of albums for many albums. Also you can play your downloaded songs only. Now you have to have Wi-Fi to get to the downloaded songs. It will eventually load but not easily without Wi-Fi which defeats the purpose. Also it does not keep track of where you were. I have to start at the beginning of my playlist and push shuffle every time and it always starts with the same few songs. So it's not random like it should be and then I have to restart it so I'm listening to the same songs over and over and over and that means on a playlist with 1100 songs. Editing playlists is very difficult as well. If I click thumbs down google play music would remove it from the playlist. Not this one. Many other issues. Weird we were forced to this app..Version: 4.07

So badThis is by far the worst app for listening to music that I have ever used. (And I have the paid subscription.) It takes a gazillion clicks to find my recent or commonly used playlists. I don’t get on the app to use mixes some rando made, I get on to listen to MY LISTS and to find new releases. Why do I have to click like five times to reach my playlists???? And even then it doesn’t show me the ones I’ve lost recently played, only the ones I’ve recently edited! The playlists are not sorted alphabetically. If I want to remove songs from a queue or move them to another playlist, it’s impossible to select more than one song at once—I HATE THIS ESPECIALLY. Such a basic and inexcusable oversight they’ve had months to fix. And if I’m already listening to a list I’ve downloaded and then I leave WiFi, it complains to me that it has no connection and needs to go to downloads, and makes me click through multiple times just to find again and shuffle the list I’m already listening to. Just awful. Also google play used to show me how many times I’ve listened to each song, and that’s what I looked at to find my favorite songs of the year. I don’t want a 2020 list they make for me, I want to make my own list! Why can’t they provide this basic thing that was already offered on google play? The web app is equally frustrating. I can’t believe we actually pay them to provide this abysmal level of service..Version: 4.07

Interface change was unnecessary, and makes it harder to use.So while I’d like the app in the past a recent update to the app changed the interface so you can no longer see the next song that’s about to play. Instead they’ve added a menu on the bottom of items that aren’t used to constantly. That menu could just as easily be on the top. In order to see the next song that’s going to play you know need to go into that menu which is it an extra step you didn’t have to do before. How this makes things more difficult is because when you initially load a song, the app generates a playlist. It just doesn’t play the one song. I would like to know what the next song is going to be so I can know if the playlist it loads is one that I like or if I’m gonna have to quickly go in there and make modifications. In addition I don’t want to have the playlist open all the time, because if I touch my phone then it will interrupt what’s playing and jump 20 songs ahead on the playlist..Version: 4.49

It's aaight...Glitches can be a common occurrence but never enough to break the accessibility of the app in general. My main grouch with it is the glitch stopping me from changing my payment card..Version: 4.57

Has issuesMain issue is the lack of volume normalisation. The tracks are up and down in volume which means you can’t just leave your playlist on without having to constantly adjust. I’ve also found in playlists it is not possible to type and search for a track in that playlist - for example if you wanted to delete a track, check for duplicates or select to ‘play next’. There’s just no search within playlist facility whatsoever. You have to scroll down the list to find it..Version: 3.90

Just glitchesIt was so good at first I was signed in for premium and it was great but it just started doing this sign in error where it just flashes it and I can’t even enter the app. I’ve tried everything to fix it like deleting and reinstalling and restarting my phone, can someone please tell me how to fix it I really liked the app. I would give it a five star ranking if I can fix it.Version: 4.05

If you have premium, just use the regular appIn the music app, sooooo many songs are “unavailable” and apparently you can still listen to the actual song outside of a certain playlist, which is obviously a bug. Hate that. My biggest problem is that there is a lot of music that is unfindable on the music app because, if it’s something like a video game soundtrack and it’s listed under “video games” instead of “music”, which means you can’t even find it on this app. Can’t listen to Teshno’s extended Spooky’s Jumpscare Mansion OST, which is something I listen to a LOT. Using the regular app is a pain, especially since it really clutters your YT interface on every device to have so many albums saved and playlists created, but it’s less of a pain than using the music app. Google, your a mega corporation, is it so much to ask that you fix your stupid app that millions of people use? Or is it because SOMEHOW you maintain 4.7 star rating that you will never see a reason to fix it?.Version: 4.48

No background play in CanadaThey said they’d release background play in Canada on nov3. Updated and no background play..Version: 4.52

You can listen to music with thisYes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that.Version: 4.40

Poor replacement for Google MusicRecently migrated my Google Music library, including my own uploaded library and have been very disappointed. Guess I have been spoiled by Google Music. What I really miss: - Every time I open the app, I have to start over to select what I want to play because the app doesn’t remember last position/ track played. Especially frustrating with my own library. - None of the queued tracks are listed or played in order of the track within the album, especially in playlists. Tracks are simply jumbled together in seemingly random order. - Same goes if trying to add an album to a playlist. tracks are simply reordered seemingly at random - Limited ability to sort onscreen. Seems to be simply alphabetical only. Needs to be able to sort by album while keeping tracks in track order. - lastly, most definitely wouldn’t pay a penny for this app, definitely not premium just to play my own tracks or the ability to play in the background. It’s pretty evident how far Google has gone from their principle, since removed, “Don’t be evil”. This app is simply frustrating enough to be considered evilly user-unfriendly..Version: 3.79

Deleting this app after 5 minA music app that stops the music as soon as you close the app??? Unless you pay $160/year! What’s the point and why do I need a second YouTube app if they both do the same thing? No thanks!.Version: 2.55

I’m disappointedI’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!.Version: 4.22

HorribleI absolutely hate this app. Can’t believe Google is taking away Play. And I’m paying for Premium, too. Playlists are confusing, “moods” is very limited and there is no “activity” filter. The other day I was listening to kids music with my young children and next on the playlist was Drake... ?! Hey Google, get your algorithm right..Version: 4.03

Ads play when I listen to my paid contentI migrated from google play music to YouTube music, as the google apps kept notifying me to do. It moved over all of the songs that I purchased through google play music. First time I play one of my paid for/purchased songs...it makes me watch a YouTube ad. :|.Version: 3.88

UpdateI used to use this app daily, I sat through all the adds, left the app open etc so I could do my schoolwork. I’m most likely going to delete it now. They just updated it so you can’t pick which song is playing next, everything is a “radio” now. Previously I would have given it 5 stars, not being able to close the app without paying is annoying but made sense. They need to make money somehow, but this is going too far, I switched from Spotify because I could choose the song. I am a musician and not being able to pick the song so I can play with it means this is useless now. I also have mental illnesses and certain songs calm me down, certain songs help me do work etc. Now I can’t pick, I would happily change my review if this update is reversed but for now it’s staying..Version: 4.54

Limited on Apple WatchContrary to the iOS version, it is severely limited on Apple Watch. At the moment (Oct 20, 2020), you cannot listen to your purchased library without going premium. This is simply unacceptable. I am not interested in Streaming app as I have bought my music collection already..Version: 3.88

Money HungryIt’s not good at all, you could just use regular YouTube. You have to pay to play music screen off which is ridiculous..Version: 3.75

Poor substituteThe company offered free music storage to its users, in exchange users agreed to allow Google to use the music they uploaded to build their music library. Google took note of similar artists a user might listen to and built their recommendation engine off of that data. They acquired competitors solely to put them out of business and eliminate the competition. They stifled innovation at every turn, and users kept quiet because they still felt the relationship was mutually beneficial. But as soon as Google had milked as much date from the users libraries as they could, they eliminated the service, and in its place coughed up this garbage that in no way is an equal substitute for what they killed. Now if you want to listen to your music that you spent years cultivating and curating, you either need to pay up $150 a year, or listen to an advertisement after every single song, with no ability to cache music for offline play. Are you an advertising business ? A music streaming company? A phone manufacturer? You can’t be all of the above and still prioritize the best interest of the customer..Version: 4.18

Not greatI really wanted to like the app but it keeps letting itself down. It won’t let me access my downloaded songs when out. Making playlists is an overly complicated process and it takes a long (hours) time for songs to download at all..Version: 2.69

A huge downgrade from Google Play MusicAs a free user of GPM, I had saved and uploaded a lot of music to my account. I don’t subscribe to a streaming service and I don’t plan to. I listen to a my own small collection. In GPM I could listen on any of my devices by casting but in here I can’t. Casting my own purchased and or uploaded music to my own devices requires a subscription. Where is the sense in that? Some of the transferred music is missing and when I asked it’s because of licensing issues in YTM. I can’t play my own music which I purchased from the Google Play Store in YTM. The whole UX of the app is a mess, the music is hidden in an awful menu structure. Searching for music is painful and shows results in different tabs. Why not allow users to only show or see their own content? If they want to see the entire global search results they can just enable that setting. Google needs to start using all that money and machine learning for better software development..Version: 3.81

Subscription required to stream to Chromecast audio devicesUnlike Google Play music, YouTube Music pushes subscriptions even more and requires them to stream to Chromecast Audio devices. Also no easy way to maintain your own music library. The constant upsells to premium are a real turnoff as well..Version: 3.81.3

Needs workThis has a ton of potential, but there are two basic issues. With the free version (on mobile device) - making it cut out when minimised or screen locked is too much of a drawback to make it even usable in an ad- supported version. The paid version - the current algorithm repeats the same songs far too frequently. I've had the paid version for a few weeks and given the algorithm large datasets to work with, but the same songs come up with such regularity is extremely irritating. Perhaps the issue is my very eclectic taste in music, but I doubt it..Version: 2.65

PoorUse to be a good app now its charging more and it constantly keeps on closing when trying to use it with and without data now for some reason and ive been subscribed for years 🤦🏼‍♂️.Version: 4.67

Google needs to do some work if so many people are paying for this appThe only thing good about this app now is that you’re able to download your songs. I work in areas with little to no reception a lot of times and having downloaded music really makes the difference. The app has a lot of issues though. My main complaint and most annoying thing is when you search for an artist or song it will start playing songs normally, but comes 4 or 5 songs in it just plays the same song over and over and over or just goes into a loop of the same songs, does not matter if it’s a playlist or an album or just a random search. It will display different song names and album arts on songs that have nothing to do with what you are listening to. No matter what type of music you select it will automatically choose the same artists and songs for every search every time and it drives me crazy. I feel this app just is not worth the subscription price. 3.99 is top price for what it’s worth..Version: 4.37

Missing Google play musicIn all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over..Version: 3.85

Too glitchyThe app has too many bugs that make it a pain to use. A lot of my downloaded albums keep un-downloading and require re-downloading. When going back from an album to the download page, it takes you to the top every time. The lock screen display gets stuck on the same song even once it's finished. A lot of albums have a download option but once downloaded all the songs are greyed out and it says it's not available for download. Just some problems to name a few. Needs to step it's game up to compete with other streaming services. No one in their right mind should pay for this over other ones..Version: 2.41

You need internet!!You need to be connected to the internet to access your playlist, also need internet to search for a downloaded song/artist. There’s no sleep timer..Version: 3.39.2

The new update created a new bugSo, supposedly instead of fixing the “only one song in a DOWNLOADED playlist when not using the app while before driving “ it now crashes in the middle of the first song just when the car is barely moving to a certain speed. It doesn’t do that if your listening to music while working or just chilling, only on a moving car. Also the random button doesn’t really randomize the music in the playlist. I noticed this whenever it lands on certain songs and it starts playing on a particular order. I missed how you can just press the randomizer button to get random songs. Now it only randomizes every other press, losing the point of the button. And when you have the randomize button on and you do something else for a bit before coming back to the app, it’ll unrandomize itself, losing whatever particular order it had when it was randomize. Please go back to the previous patch til you fix this! I don’t like listening to the radio while driving..Version: 4.54

Offline mode is terribleIt doesn’t even let you search the alng or artist you want to lisen to. You have to go trough alll of your songs to find it. It is fat from eing convenient lol Do not buy it, not worth it. Google play music was muuuch better..Version: 3.88

Good, please improve CarPlayThe app is fine, if not needing a bit of polish. CarPlay support is welcome but why oh why isn’t there a button to add a song I’m listening to into my library on CarPlay? You can’t use Siri for that so if you like something in the car what to you do? Please add a + button like Apple Music has. I can also look at the app on my phone and see several playlists which are simply not there when looking on CarPlay, why? And built in playlists like ‘Discover Mix’ also not on CarPlay unless you’ve listened to it recently and access it from the ‘Recent’ menu. None of this can be by accident but I don’t get why it’s by design. I shouldn’t only write the bad things though so good things are: Cast music video by Airplay which even Apple Music doesn’t do. Choose between music video or audio on any song (love this). Would be good to get more Siri integration.Version: 4.27

New updates make it awfulFollowing the standard of Spotify, YouTube music makes you listen to whatever song they choose for you unless you upgrade. You can’t control your play list, or even if you listen to your actual playlist as they add in other songs. It’s full of ads and is just generally terrible. The paid version only offers what the free version should. Instead of competing in a market they’ve lowered their standards to meet the base of what other apps are doing. Gross..Version: 5.04

BugsWhen listening to downloaded music, the album artwork is always pixelated. When going through sections, like clicking over to the downloaded music, there is always a delay..Version: 2.47

HelpNot really happy with the app, I used to be able to choose between song or video when I purchased premium music but I have now switched to a family subscription and can’t seem to choose between either as in I no longer have the option to choose. I’ve had my premium subscription a little over a year and have had no problems but since switching to family subscription there is nothing but problems.Version: 4.42

Good app. One Dealbreaker FlawThis app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should. What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc. My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service..Version: 4.42

All your ads has added up in my bank account!I have been paying for the top subscription once a month for over 6 months and I still have advertising would have but I have paid too much adding it all up now! then clicking subscribe for no ads then login in and it says your already subscribed to your account! No sh#!! But in fact I think you have given me more ads. You constantly take my money but you never take away the ads. Please refund all of my subscriptions. I think I’ve been loyal to the point of your just taking my money for granted. And I’m sure you will miss it!.Version: 3.59

So much worse than Google PlayThe most frustrating thing is that it never remembers the song I left off at and then I have to navigate a 200 song playlist to figure out where I was. This is made worse if you shuffle a playlist. For the love of god please track the song position in iPhone storage so it can resume where I left off..Version: 4.07

MoneyI like how it functions but not how you need to pay for everything like listening to it while it’s closed.Version: 2.35

A few work on point probably not going to get fixed!Well the app is all good, apart from when you try add music to your playlist, the playlist that you have made aren’t there, so really you can’t add music, also why do you have to update and manually download your music even tho once you have downloaded that playlist you got to sync it again, doesn’t make sense, is so stupid and annoying, then when you do play the songs they just won’t load even tho I’m connected to wifi, and sometimes when there’s a video, the video and the sound aren’t in sync, there’s always a delay, this probably won’t get fixed as long as they are getting there subscribed payments they are happy.... so unsatisfied.Version: 4.17

Puts hated songs in favourite list with no way to removeThis is what happens when they remove the don’t be evil clause. Also, after migrating from Google play music there’s no I’m feeling lucky button anymore and it’s just playing the same songs. Hard to find new songs based on my likes compared to before. Can’t just tell it to play some music. Much worse experience now. And another thing, why force us into a video app for music if there is almost always no video, and when there is it’s absolute garbage quality?.Version: 4.20

Few inconveniencesCould you make the shuffling better, because it only shuffles the recently downloaded songs. And also add an option to have alphabetical order in your playlists (by artist and/or song name), other than that the app is great :).Version: 4.43

Download entire library.Please let us download multiple tracks together..Version: 4.71

WAS great but one major issue..I used to love this app, and use it constantly.. My old review on here was 4 stars and I made that 4 years ago! But I’m afraid I have to change it now as there’s a new glitch with the family subscription. For me at least, after two members of the family are signed up, any others will be added to the family but won’t get the subscription- meaning they’re listed as there but the app itself just registers them as regular, unpaying users.. Which is extremely frustrating. I no longer have the benefits we as a family are paying for and I have to say that this is a major ripoff, hoping to see it fixed in the next update..Version: 5.10

Disappointing!I thought you’d be able to finally listen to music with your phone off without it closing but if you want to do that, gotta buy premium. extremely disappointing.Version: 4.05

Music plays in wrong order via car playHi, why the track order of an artist when played on web/mobile differs to the same played via car play device??? On web (or the mobile phone) the tracks played the same order as they listed on top tracks section vs once the artist is selected on car play the order is random - it does not follow any of meaningful order.Version: 5.28

Not optimised for Apple CarplayI understand that YT music is a Google product but you must also consider that a great majority of customers are iPhone users. YT Music on Carplay encounter errors 2/10 of the time where you have to restart the app or disconnect/reconnect the phone. Also the major issue that completely gets me off from using YT music on Carplay is that pressing “Shuffle” button on the Apple Carplay screen does nothing. You have to go to your iPhone to activate Shuffle mode, which isn't great if you're driving. Some minor tweaks on these issues and YT Music will be a great music app even for iPhone users..Version: 4.32

Why did we get a step down?!I honestly am very disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription because of how bad this app is. Google Play was so easy to find your playlists and organize them and even just find songs in you playlist. Now it takes multiple clicks to find my liked songs (which I had downloaded but then the app bugged out and said I had no downloaded playlists even though my phone storage said I had 12 gb of music downloaded). The app crashes way too many times while using it. There have been multiple occasions where I will pause my music to take a phone call and when I end my call, the app will restart and stop my music playback. Other times my downloaded playlists will reply the same song over and over again and my playlist will disappear. These problems force me to cancel my family plan and switch to an alternative even though I really don’t like any other options, I am forced to do so based on how long these problems have been around..Version: 4.28

Not suitable for offline listeningThe offline listening experience is broken. Two major issues: 1) Even when a playlist is downloaded, the app tries to stream the tracks. This gets frustrating especially when travelling underground. The only way to play a downloaded playlist is to go to the “Download” section and select the same playlist. 2) On multiple occasion, when playing a playlist, the player gets stuck at the third or the fourth song on loop and refuses to move ahead. I have submitted this feedback twice via the in-app feedback mechanism but there isn’t even an acknowledgment that the feedback was received, let alone being acted on..Version: 5.01

Downloads are a painA decent app for music if you live and work in an area with good signal. I rely on downloads and the download feature in this is a mess. Switching from one phone to another isn’t as seamless as it should be and you have to go and download each song individually as it come across your playlist. Can get time consuming and irritating. There is no way to download your entire music library at once. Only “liked” songs and playlists. And even then my liked songs won’t download at once. It gets stuck and the majority of the songs are left waiting to download. Checked all my WiFi settings and allowed space and it’s fine. Apple Music and google play music were the better apps by far. I have had this app on a Note 10 and now an iPhone 11 Pro and it’s the same issue across the different systems and slightly worse for apple..Version: 4.07

What was wrong with Google Play Music?The music plays fine at home, but when I’m out, even tough I have downloaded a playlist, the ap has often forgotten this and refuses to play the playlist. It seems to download, and then remove the downloads. This was not the case with Google Play Music. The problem seems to be that Download seems to be a state of a playlist, when in fact it should be an ambition, so if I add a track to a downloaded playlist, that new track and all the others should be available offline. But the point seems to drop the download... Please sort it out. Or just don’t cancel Google Play Music - it did all I needed it to, and mostly better than you tube music..Version: 3.81

App gets stuck on one song after half an hourThis app started off well but lately I have noticed after about half an hour it just repeats whichever song was on at the time. Not great if running etc..Version: 4.57

Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?(Updated On Exp) Starting to love this new look actually. I can see the songs I enjoy replaying come up well at the top section. What was great before was tapping a track that I’ll enjoy, and wondering - what would some remixes/covered/related tracks sound like. The older “more” button or what the current “i”/“Information” button had previously done this. It was awesome! I was hooked. I could find so many great songs from other artists/DJs and so on by finding a great hit, then tapping those buttons. Now those features aren’t to be found. I don’t feel confident paying because I can get the same great hits/music from streaming services that I’ve never tried before. I was a student for all the time I’ve used it (1.5 years) as well - so I really do love the app! It’s harsh pressing the info button and seeing nothing..Version: 2.33

Cash GrabIf you’re coming from Google Play and if you’re already paying for a Google Play subscription, then this app may be perfectly suited to you. If you’re migrating from the free version of Google Play, you’re likely going to be very unhappy. The app seems specifically designed to annoy the user with as many roadblocks to enjoying their music as possible in order to force them into purchasing a subscription. The app will not run in the background without a subscription, so forget about using it in the car and having a gps running at the same time. Advertisements are played in between nearly every song, including music you already purchased. Often these would be video ads so if you’re on a limited data plan, that’s going to hurt. Downloading your music is a premium feature as well. YouTube’s global head of music, Lyon Cohen, stated in an interview at SXSW “There’s a lot more people in our funnel that we can frustrate and seduce to become subscribers,” and it appears he’s making good on that. Google Play generated income off me in their free service by playing ads on their radio, which I was fine with and presumably by taking a cut of the sale whenever I purchased an album from them, which I was also fine with. However, I won’t be bullied into paying for a subscription. I’ve transferred my music to another service and will not be purchasing further music through Google/YouTube which is a shame as I felt Google Play was really well done..Version: 3.75

GLITCHY and CONFUSING as heckI wouldn't be very upset about how they are getting rid of Google Play Music if this app wasn't so crappy of a replacement. It is super glitchy, freezes way too often, doesn't let me download many things that were downloadable on Google Play Music, and it still hasn't downloaded the playlists that for which I initiated the downloads weeks ago...I mean come on! Google certainly has the resources to make this app so much better, so since it is hopeless that they will change their minds on getting rid of Google Play Music (which I heavily endorsed for the years that I used it and spent hours upon hours building up my library etc, and have been the DJ at work and many gatherings personal and professional), PLEASE GET THIS APP FULLY FUNCTIONAL related to my complaints above!!!!!!! UPDATE AFTER USING THIS CRAPP FOR OVER A YEAR: I think this (crapp) app has gotten worse somehow 😢😪😫 It has frozen a dozen times after playing DOWNLOADED songs during my cries country trip today. And it takes about a minute to get its bearings to even begin paying anything for EVEN THOUGH IT’S DOWNLOADED let alone the fact that I’ve got FULL 5G SERVICE 🤮.Version: 4.50

BTS DESERVE BETTERFirst of all it’s already a bad app because you literally can’t do anything until you pay and plus they are snakes who took away almost 100 million views from ON by bts I hate the app even more now.Version: 3.53

Terrible !!!I used to love YouTube music and used it all the time now with the updates I don’t even get to control the music I listen to??? Sure I get to close the app and still listen but I don’t even like what I get to listen to. This is just terrible...Version: 4.53

EhYeah, nice that it’s free but it’s even worse than spotify with the premium features. isn’t the point of a music app to listen while the phone’s locked??.Version: 2.35

Great app, big flawsThis is my all time favorite music app, and I wish I could give it 5 stars.. but there’s a couple things that are preventing that at the current moment. Firstly, it’s 2021 and there’s still no lyrics tab? I understand that it’s not always possible to be accurate 100% of the time, or maybe it’s a file size issue, but Apple Music does it and it works just fine. It’s extremely annoying to constantly switch apps to my browser, so I can read the lyrics, and I had to pay to even be able to do that in the first place. Secondly, and this is BY FAR my biggest pet peeve ever. When I go out of my way to rearrange my playlist to perfectly fit my mood at the time and I accidentally click on a song to start a station instead of adding it to the queue. Maybe add a warning, like “hey you’re about to lose that whole playlist arrangement you spent an hour on, are you sure you want to continue?” (Yet, another thing Apple Music does) I never thought Apple would be better at listening to their customers than google but here we are..Version: 4.46

Poor design and UX logicI mean it does that job, so it’s okay. But it’s only okay. It’s still worse than the soon to be shut down Google Play Music, which should raise warning bells that this is worse than that old app. It lacks basic logic filtering like seeing all albums you have by an artist. Now it’s just a long sprawling list of songs. Want to listen to an album by an artist? You’ll need to search for the album in albums instead of searching for the artist. Want to filter albums by when released year, genre, artist, grouping or anything else? Tough luck. You can’t. You just get all the albums in chronicle order. Or let’s take compilations. Lovely things with lots of artists contributing music. Not here though. Now your artists list is polluted with hundreds of artists with only one song connected to them. Or what about videos? I mean we like videos, but for an app that’s designed to work in the background, why are you always forcing a video onto us. Allow us to block that out. If we want to watch a video then give us the option, but don’t force it down our throats. Really if you have to use the app you have to. But if you can avoid it, avoid it. Go for anything else. Heck you’ll be better of using anything else..Version: 3.69

This game well music app is terribleI’m giving this game a 2 because it only works when it wants to it’s the same thing with the super Mario 64 camera basically only only works when it wants to and here’s how it goes how come I can play coconut mall on my iPad then shut the tab and it keeps playing but with anything else it just shuts off completely so that’s one of the reasons next one is it always makes me go to that website well app even though I don’t have it and that’s the only two reasons so you should take that into consideration please do that otherwise I’m giving you zero next time..Version: 4.29

ConfusedThey brought out an update with an easier and more accessible layout when the song is playing with shuffle and loop being easier to find as well as related songs when playing them on wifi… was shocked to come onto the app today with those features gone?? The related tab and lyrics tab made it much easier to explore more songs of that taste. I don’t know if they’re gonna fix it up and bring it back but olease do! It worked so much better!.Version: 4.40

DisgustedBring back google play music. Or at least let us listen to Albums we have previously paid for in google music player store for free without adds. How can you justify forcing someone to pay a monthly cost to listen to music they have already previously paid for, this is robbery and extremely unfair. And yes I downloaded my music before you shut down google music player, but it didn’t download properly, there are songs missing or songs in the wrong order. I tried several times, but I am missing a lot of songs. Disappointed and disgusted in Google..Version: 5.22

This could be a game changerI only do give it a 2 star because if you have to pay monthly to listen to music while using other apps or listen to music offline then you might as well not get the it would be the dream app everyone is looking for if you could use those options for free. So basically if you don’t buy the month fee your just listening to music while still on the app P.s i basically gave you your best experience option there.Version: 3.69

System unfunctionalIn the downloaded songs when i play shuffle mode, listen until reach random song and after it finish playing that song, its just stop for no reason then i have to press shuffle again.Version: 5.16

Beta versionSo many things missing. Update. So many things still missing or just not working. Maybe an Alpha version after all..Version: 3.79

Could be 5 starsAs a previous user of other music streaming apps, this is by far my best one. However, prices went up drastically within the few months I’ve joined. Hence why rating could be 5 stars, but price is stopping my fingers from clicking the 5th star..Version: 4.67

No subscription feed :(Please just add a subscription place so we can know when our favourite artists post. The new releases section just promotes new-ish releases from pop artists and not artists that I’ve subscribed to. If I want to find new releases from artists I’ve subscribed to I have to go through their profiles 1 by 1 and it’s so time consuming. If they did something like replace the explore section that nobody uses with a subscriptions section it would really make my day :).Version: 3.65

This is not a very good appThis is not the best music app because when I play my music it doesn’t let me play a different game or even turn the device off with out the music stopping. It worked for a small amount of time and I could play any thing I wanted with out adds as well but it’s just not working bad game so bad review that’s it I’ve had enough with this junk on less someone fixes this..Version: 5.16

Okay, but needs improvementI love how organized the library is but there are still issues that have been problems for years now. When adding an album to my library why can’t we delete individual songs?? It’s time consuming to have to individually add the songs to your library just to be able to delete songs when you please. I may not like a whole album, but I’m stuck with all the songs in my library unless I go one by one adding songs. Also can we have the alphabet and something to scroll with on the side when it comes to artists, songs, and albums? I have so much music and it would so much easier to find stuff if there were scrolling options. And when organizing artists, songs, and albums can we have an option of organizing alphabetically and also by artist? Also there is no way to organize songs within a playlist. Alphabetically, by artist, by album, etc. Simple fixes like these would make this app five stars in my book..Version: 5.05

The app force you upgrade and lost support for apple watchThe app force you to update by stop your music after 1 min of playing, then you are no longer check music on your Apple Watch unless upgrade to Premium subscriber.Version: 4.66

Feature starvedI'm on the YouTube Premium family subscription and this app needs to catch up with many useful Google Play Music features that I'm used to. Also misses downloading latest Library additions. Misses Show All Albums for some artists. Could use offload download/ playback on Apple Watch without the phone. Shuffling and randomization algorithm is far inferior to Google Play Music. Some songs that I had on Google Play Music playlists simply fail to load offline on YouTube Music. The list goes on... I've considered switching to Apple Music several times but I much rather this app getting right..Version: 4.02

Bring back the lyrics!What happens to the lyrics on the songs I download ? This app is still dope but need the lyrics in there sorry that’s just it either than that I love this app so easy to use!.Version: 4.33.3

Aight music appI use this app to listen to all my music. However there are some songs that aren’t available on this platform but are available elsewhere. But one of the things that bothers me is the fact that there isn’t no features to listen to music on a playlist from oldest added to newest added. Because I don’t want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom of my playlist to listen to old songs I added. Also some other features that would be nice to have is the ability to filter through songs in your playlist so kind of like a search bar or options to help sort by music. Also another thing that would be nice is the option or ability that you can turn on or off to find new music not based on music you listen to already so you can find and explore new music from people you probably haven’t heard of..Version: 4.71

HoribbleI downloaded this app and sighned in then it started saying sighn in error. I tried closing it then deleting it and re downloading it and it still didn’t work this app is a pice of crap.Version: 4.05

Basic features are a failureI truly don't understand how this app is rated so well. It fails in the most basic of ways, making using it a continually frustrating experience. When viewing Library by Artist, instead of showing the Albums by that artist like every music app ever, including Google Play Music, it just lists all the songs by that artist. "YT Music" and "Uploads" are separated when. Looking at your library, so you have to look in two different places to see all the content from a single artist. Loop preference does not persist between queues, so when you start a new album or playlist, if you want it to loop, you have to select that EACH TIME. You can view Downloads just fine if you have service, but if you're in a low service area, the app will just sit at a loading screen forever, blocking access to everything, unless you turn on airplane mode. It's a mess. The only marginal improvement on Google Play Music has been consistent album art when in offline mode (it'd just disappear in GPM for some reason). This app needs SO MUCH WORK and seems to have been designed by a team that has never worked on this type of app before, or simply doesn't get UX at all. Being forced to replace GPM with this is incredibly frustrating..Version: 3.86

It was goodSince the new update you can’t listen to the song you choose and instead you start a radio? But we can have background music. but overall 1 step forward 2 steps back.Version: 4.54

MESS!The library and preferences from Google Play Music do not transfer to YouTube Music. Instead of sticking with Google Play Music or just rebranding the service, Google decided to go for the messiest transition in their history..Version: 2.35

Good appOver all good app but I’d like to see the option to rearrange the songs into different order even after been downloaded & would also like to see the option to download albums but have them go into the download section instead of a seperate section I find going into the album & downloading the songs one at a time quite annoying if there is many songs in the album.Version: 4.23

This app is below averageUsing this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far.Version: 4.43

Why do you have to pay exactly?So I get the paying for the no ads thing but paying so you can go off the app is pretty annoying for me. I’m not able to pay for it because I still live with my parents, and a 3 hour drive while stuck in between two little brothers is annoying especially when their screaming is all you can hear. Overall it’s okay but I don’t really get the use if you have to stay on the app while listening to music..Version: 3.69

It has a bug, a really annoying oneI have subscribed and un subscribed a few times now, I love the app when it works properly which is most of the time but I’ve had an issue which has repeated itself more than once now. I start to play a song and it plays for for 3-5 seconds then it has no sound for 3-5 seconds… the song plays again for 3-5 seconds then no sound for 3-5 seconds and this repeats itself over and over again to the point where you turn it off because you can’t use the app..Version: 5.17

Pay to listen to own music offline?!?I have to pay to listen to my own purchased music library for offline listening (download music)? Play Music is way better..Version: 3.65

As bad as it is possible to beI have used the Play music app for many years, now google has forced me to use this app. I hate it! If I could give less than one star, that I’d what this app would get. I am now looking for alternatives, and also plan to move away from other google services. Reasons: - it does not let me play my music with the app in the background (unless I pay google for a subscription that I don’t need and don’t want). This makes it unusable for me. It means I can’t do anything else on my phone while I listen to music. - it doesn’t let me download music to my phone. Again, unless I pay for a subscription. Google: I don’t want a subscription. I already have most of the music I need. - why does it play me adverts when all I want to do is listen to my own (purchased) music + I just found out that I can no longer cast to a google home hub, or ask it to play from my music library, unless, guess what,...I pay for a premium subscription. I will be contacting google to get a refund on my google homes, since they have taken away the one feature I use most..Version: 3.79

Horrible appMost horrible app for music you can’t pick a song. you can only turn on the radio now so you can’t listen to the songs you want so what’s the point in having a search bar.Version: 4.53

Needs OptimisingAfter giving up with this app last year for being slow at skipping songs (2-3 minutes) I thought I’d give it another go. Seems to be improving (song skip more quickly now). But the app seems restart after a couple minutes of not using it which is very frustrating. Other music apps do not have this problem. This app also seems to slow down my phone/ipad more than any other apps I use. UI Improvements: I’d like to see the skip button also be a FF button like every other player out there. Frustrating as it breaks the usability of keyboard shortcuts or car controls. Also add a scroll bar to quickly scroll through a playlists..Version: 4.64

App crashes every time I open itSometimes I can listen to music for hours and it’s fine but every so often I’ll be listening and then it just repeats the same song over and over, all the other songs in my downloads will just disappear after I clicked shuffle they’ll play for a little bit then it’s just one song can’t skip or go back because it’ll be the same song, or even when I skip or choose another song all others will delete off the list and I just have the one. It’s kind of an annoyance and would definitely like a fix for it soon please this bug has been going on for months now... Edit: Furthermore this app won’t even open up I can’t listen to music at all and there’s no point in paying for the subscription anymore because I can’t use the app. Mine as well delete it and lose all my music and everything I have saved because I doubt once I re-download that A it’ll work again or B I’ll lose all my songs that I once had..Version: 5.27

I hate this. Google music this is not.I was a Google music user, for years and years. Would have or not have subscription throughout, depending, but would always store my library online with it and use it. This... is awful. Trying to play your music library is painful, so deep in menus, and somehow I always end up being pulled into some mode of having to hear either ads or other songs / artists I don’t care about. Basically, this is the music app for people who don’t actually know anything about music. It’s for that guy who listens to “whatever” on Pandora. It’s not for people who like particular artists, or who have any love for albums. This service is a mess just like every other Google product has become over the years. Sad truth. Just wait until they abandon it.. because they always do that. Instead of fixing a few things on Google Music, they killed it and gave birth to this mess. I don’t need all this junk, I just wanted a music player. So, back to loading everything onto my device via iTunes I guess..Version: 3.87

Great but lost all downloaded tracksThis has been my go to streaming service for music and library is immensely vast than Apple Music . However , after using this service for over two years and having downloaded more than 1500+ tracks , today woken up to all of them being deleted. I have enough memory on my phone and allocated space on the app yet all gone overnight. Vastly disappointed guys! Anyway to get it back?.Version: 5.26.3

Not goodFirst thing that’s super upsetting is I have to keep my phone unlocked to listen to music. You guys should fix it up like the other apps and make it more accessible when locked. Also the video idea is cool but it kills my data. The app has the potential to be the best music app because the music algorithm they set for you is better than Spotify but there’s all these little obstacles that make it difficult to use..Version: 4.02

ItsalrightIt’s awesome to search for any unofficial and official music. Although the app is outdated and lacks a lot of features the competition have. A lyric feature and redesigned now playing screen which is easier, intuitive to use would be great..Version: 4.18

Too many upsellsThe way the music flows is good and how they manage to come up with relevant music is also good. But they’re so greedy with the upselling offers of membership. Not all of us are ignorant to the fact that the ads pay you very well to market their products to your markets so why be greedy and driving us crazy every few seconds to join your membership too. I won’t pay for what you are already getting paid for. It’s the same gripe o have with the New York City mass transit system constantly increasing the fare only to benefit the cream of the crop but the ads plastered all about the trains and it’s stations already compensate for it well. I’m considering using my high classifications to stop all these monopolies. It’s ridiculous how selfish and greedy these big corps tend to be. Who truly is looking out for the everyday person?.Version: 5.19

Terrible replacement for Google Play Music. Get something elseThe interface is clunky. It refuses to download songs when I press the download button. The worst part is you have to pay for the premium subscription to play music with your phone locked. I haven’t put much time into the app because that is a deal breaker. It’s finally time to hop on Spotify or Apple Music, not this..Version: 3.79

Functionally fine except for the recommendation systemIt’s a fine music player, but having come from Google Play Music, I have to say the recommendation system is not very good. For example: - same songs recommended over and over - “tunnel vision” when it comes to artists and genres. Expanding on the second point, if I like one song by an artist outside of my normally preferred genres, it thinks I want to listen to everything by that artist and/or in the genre. Meanwhile, it happily ignores my 1000s of other likes of a different genre and artists. Like one song from a movie soundtrack? You must want to listen to every move sound track! Liked 1000s of early music songs? Got nothing new for you! For music discovery, this app is not good. I have more luck just searching for what I like. I guess I wouldn’t mind if I hadn’t had a much better experience with Google Play Music. It’s sad they dropped a superior product. Oh, I took an other star off for lack of customisation available in the UI. I don’t care about new music by the kids these days. I’m old! Get off my lawn!.Version: 4.29

Stopped workingSecond day using it, it seemed great in the beginning, upgraded to the free 3 month trial so was able to download and listen to music offline once I created a playlist, then Later music started to go missing from my playlist, now today I go in the app the playlists that I had are gone completely, I go to check my downloaded music, there’s only a few showing, the rest are showing missing, when I try to re load them, there’s an error message that comes up, I tried to search for music to re do my playlists when I try to search for an artist it just says no results, even though they showed up yesterday. They really need to fix the app for people to use it, it’s all glitched and poor, will be deleting it, useless..Version: 2.35

Too CostlyToo much $$$ to make this app functional.Version: 2.55

Don’t be evil??Yes, whatever happened to that slogan. I have no doubt that the transition from Google Play Music to YouTubeMusic makes complete commercial sense within the hallways of Google/Alphabet grand headquarters. But the coerced nature of this shift (including the delivery app and the way that music is navigated, managed and played) is an ugly outcome for those of us who invested time and money in the GPM ecosystem. Google could have readily adapted and transitioned the existing GPM music app to the YTM music library (the ostensible rationale for the move) but instead chose against this minimal impact strategy. The YTM user experience inevitably embraces google’s ability to push additional content recommendations - in our best interests of course (not). Well, now it’s done, and you’ll need to make up your own mind how much you’ll trust google with any other current and future product offerings..Version: 3.88

Forced outI used google play music for many years and found it better than Spotify. Now I’m being forced into an incomplete app which I’ve seen ignores your preferences and recommend garbage. No thanks, I can turn on the radio for that. Because of the discontinuation of google play music, I will no longer be subscribing. GG.Version: 4.02

FrustratingWhen I click to listen to an artist, I’ll be listening and then it’ll randomly start playing other artists. Why? Who asked for that? It doesn’t even go through the entire discography before doing it either - it just does this after a few songs. I don’t want to listen to random artists when I’m in the mood for one particular artists. It also happens with my playlists! If I wanted random songs in my playlists I would add them. Please remove this feature..Version: 4.27

Sucks have to pay to listen in background bruhJust download Spotify.Version: 4.05

ChaoticNew design is nicer sure but it’s harder to listen to certain kinds of songs like clicking on a song that’s recommended or recently listened to and getting similar songs, now it’s just going into a recent song and every song playing after it is the same songs and not random anymore. It’s like its just one playlist..Version: 2.39

Very glitchyEndlessly stuck downloading one of my playlists at 99%. Most of it is already downloaded. Actually sometimes it takes a while to update the playlist and download newer songs. Can’t remove songs from collaborative playlists if not owner. Also it doesn’t always display the right song playing. For example. It’s playing thriller by Michael Jackson but in the notifications it says some other song. Also while connected to my cars aux it always repeats songs at least once. Can’t turn it off even if the setting is off. It’s not always compatible with the Ford Focus software. Also I should mention that I’m on free trial. So basically premium. But it’s not worth real money. Also you can’t search songs in downloaded. For example I downloaded 2000 songs and I want to find music by Yung Gravy, I can’t search for it. Also sometimes the “play next” list is glitched and doesn’t show. Also I made a Siri shortcut where it plays a playlist but it’s the same order everytime. There’s no option to shuffle.Version: 4.52

Recent bugI’ve noticed that recently, I will be listening to my music when one song won’t play no matter what. It’s always random and it’s not just a loading problem as if I skip it, the rest of my music will play as normal. However, I don’t want to skip songs just because they won’t play. It’s a wonderful app however, and the only thing I would like to see added is to shuffle my liked songs from a certain artist. If I shuffle my artist liked songs, it will add songs that either I haven’t liked by the artist or completely different songs. This would be a nice addition to the app..Version: 4.62

Not as advertisedMight be good if you want to pay the monthly premium, but free version you device has to be on and in the app in order to work. Drains battery quick and turns off unless you have premium package. Zero stars from me I’d rather have the google play music back..Version: 4.02

Same complaint as everybody elseIf you’re using the free addition, the music stops playing once you put your phone to rest... what?? It’s literally just a second YouTube app. Waste of space..Version: 3.49

Bring back google musicI hate this app. It continues to stop playing after 3 songs on a playlist of songs that I paid for via google. I can’t figure out how to purchase a song so I don’t see ads. I don’t want to subscribe. It’s a rip off..Version: 3.85

LMAOAOAI was excited to finally see that I could literally listen to all the music on YouTube that I can’t find on Spotify until I read that u have to buy the premium version for background playing. Lolol what a joke..Version: 2.55

Could be greatGood music selection, generally easy to navigate the app but for what it costs per month there are some serious flaws. No option to shuffle all downloads No ability to sort playlists No ability to sort downloads If like me you are well into your music and listen to alot you will likely agree that being able to sort your playlists is paramount. They don’t facilitate this what so ever in this app and have shown no signs of changing this. Also i download all of my playlists so i can listen offline. I would love the ability to just select “shuffle downloads” but you can’t. You can only shuffle songs within a specific playlist, it doesn’t give a shuffle all option of any form. For how simple these things must be to add i think it’s pretty criminal that they don’t do it, especially given what they charge. I’m holding out because i do like the basic structure of the app but if these things aren’t added soon i will be moving away from YT music..Version: 3.29

Don’t downloadThis app is great if you like being screwed over. This is not a good deal. I can’t access music I’ve downloaded if I move off of the app unless I give google my money. NO THANKS. I’ll use a different service. Google is rich enough why should I pay them to listen to my music..Version: 3.88

Annoyingly money hungryAsks you to go for premium every time u open the app.even if u have a song playing and come back to it after 30 secs ..Version: 2.55

Worst version of SpotifyBad.Version: 2.35

I can’t close the app and listen to musicWhat’s the point of making a music app if it’s the same as YouTube?.Version: 2.69

Google play transitionThe transition from google play to youtube music is just abysmal. There is no option to purchase individual songs or albums like before. You can only stream music, which you can’t even turn your screen off for unless you pay for premium. This is youtube’s bad take on spotify and I would not recommend it at all. If you want to stream music for free or as a subscription, apple music and spotify are far superior options. I have spent hundreds of dollars building a library on google play and I hate to see that I can no longer expand said library because of this transition. I will be switching to spotify because I am left with no other option..Version: 3.79

This is my first review I’ve ever written on AppleThis app...it’s a lot. I mean I was forced to come to this app. Visually, I love the interface over Google Music. Having the videos here are cool. The mixes are usually better than Google Music as well, but that’s where it ends. The force closing is tragic. If someone calls or you enter the app back quickly it will close the app. Unlike Google Music, it won’t even pick off where you left. Why are playlists not in alphabetical order...what in the crazy town of an idea was that. You can’t even search for your playlist, like you could on Google Music, without turning up a ton of other results and never yours. I mean these are like basic functions, I don’t ask for much, I ask for what i had to be what I had. This app was out months before y’all made us switch. So the basic functionality of Google music was just bypassed. I’m upset. I can’t even go back to Google Music. It’s like y’all are forcing me to go Apple Music but all of my downloads, about 10,000, are here. Sigh..Version: 3.85

Appalling integration with Google devicesThe app itself is nice and easy to use. However it has a serious flaw when using it with Google Home or Chromecast. If you want to cast songs from the app to the smart device you will find that the “play next” feature to add songs to the queue stops working properly. Added songs do not appear in the queue list in the app (despite a pop up message confermino that the song will play next), but they will play on the smart device, although you won’t be able to control the volume anymore..Version: 3.15

Needs improvementI know this is relatively new but there is few thing needs to be improved right away. First of all, replay music option isn’t there. every time I want to listen to the music I put on again I have to open my screen and tap on the app. Secondly, there is no fast forward option. Last is a major issue for me. I downloaded some music and I can’t access the app when I’m offline, it asked me for internet connection. I mean what’s the point of downloading music when I can’t use the app while I don’t have internet?.Version: 2.41

You need money for this appIt’s like asking if someone if they want a certain food, they agree, and you still say you don’t want it. Oh you wanted to listen to this song? That’s too bad because you don’t have premium..Version: 4.57

It's so so...I mean, it's worth a go, especially since you get a free 3 month trail at the moment. And unlike apple music you can shuffle after you chosen to play a particular song, multiple times until you like the play que. However besides the UI that needs some serious work and other little things the main issue I had... Was that twice in the space a week the app would become unresponsive and I'd have to delete the app and download all my music to work again... 😑 plus it doesn't play too nicely with iOS in general. But again. Try it for yourself. It might be good enough..Version: 3.07

Literally so badThe mixes it makes for you contains like one artist you know, the rest are genres and artists completely out of your desired music. No matter how much you like and dislike songs, the algorithm still spews out terrible stuff, plus the songs you dislike still get put into you mixes. I’ve had to dislike one song at least 10 times. Any features made to tailor to your taste literally doesn’t work. I wouldn’t usually mind but it’s literally music that nobody would listen to because it’s all over the place. I want normal music not some terrible music festival wannabes. That’s what sound cloud is for.Version: 4.27

WasteIs this even different from YouTube at all besides the fact it’s JUST music. Like if I wanted to listen to music and need to keep my phone on I’d just open it in YouTube..Version: 2.55

LiarPromised to include free background play for Canadians beginning Nov 3rd 2021, 2 days have passed, still nothing happened..Version: 4.52

Downloads keep deletingI like to download pre-made playlists but I have noticed that once downloaded they tend to have less songs than before and it’s even got to the point that over the course of a week my playlist will have lost 40 songs. I didn’t have this glitch earlier and it’s been very annoying. Please fix it soon.Version: 3.53

This app is great butIt could be better the “my mixtape” is just music that i went out of my way to find it music i have in my likes or downloads rarely is there new music in there that i haven't heard, along with that if my mixtape is supposed to be songs that i like and etc then don’t play different music at different times, in the morning it plays different music than in the afternoon and night which is okay but i like to hear everything and my morning music is the same as my night time and my afternoon music. Along with the play more music for me, if the new discover playlist or whatever it’s called is supposed to help me find new music it would be nice to make it more accurate I've never liked a song that played in that playlist and it’s not even the type of music i listen to and i’ll listen to anything. also it needs to be updated all the time not every Wednesday..Version: 3.63

Great AppGreat App but needs improvement, I’d personally like to see a feature where it tells me how long I listen to a genre of music, how many times I’ve listened to a song, most played song, most listened album. Maybe even a regional leaderboard to see who listens to the most music and where, and the exact songs/albums that get the most run time on the app in those locations (kind of like trending) but more refined and less promotional. I’d like to see the ability to backup your downloaded song to the cloud that way you have the exact same songs on a different device (this currently is not in the app) it is painful to get a new device and have to type out hundreds to thousands of songs and download individually..Version: 3.61

History and connectivity issuesMy playback history is not showing all the recent songs just played. instead shows some kind of highlights from previous months. totally not useful. I want to use the history to see what the last few songs were so I can favourite them or find out more from the artist etc. Also it keeps disconnecting from my google assistant Bluetooth & wifi speaker but the music continues so I keep having to reconnect to gain control again. fyi my phone is close to the speaker at all times. please resolve these issues and I will increase my rating..Version: 5.04

Needs simple bug fixesPlease fix: Play next Add to queue Chromecast So annoying that I can’t add songs to play next or even the queue while casting. Playing to Xbox one, can’t change the song after casting. Have to restart the Xbox to play a different song while casting from phone. Simple stuff like this should not be an issue. Paying £20 a month to a billion dollar company and I can’t change the song from my phone. Such simple functionality that doesn’t work. Annoying to say the least..Version: 4.54

Extremely disappointingFor a paid service of google the experience is very disappointing. Sometimes it just stop playing. If you take off your AirPods it does not always stop. As a service it is not really good as the website. The recommendations for instance are just songs you have heard previously and you choose a song most of the times the following songs are always previously heard. The worst though I think is the fact that it does not sync with the website so if you hear something on your phone does appear on the site version or the Al does not learn from your device habits and vice versa..Version: 3.31

Wow - submitted review and you don’t postPoor app - lost all my downloaded content in supposed ‘transfer from Play’. Doesn’t offer options on previous service...thinks it knows what I want to listen to. Assume this is from tracking what I am doing....not happy. Lacks functionality but pulls your family in with contract offer so you can’t leave easily. Lost content...paid content...not easy to use. Some of us have poor data service and need to both travel and pay for data access. We need better options to keep this app..Version: 3.69

Disappointing TransitionWas forced to transfer to YouTube Music from Google Play and I hate this new app. The interface is totally chaotic — it’s difficult to narrow down navigation and it’s too stimulating, even with the black background. I don’t like how other users personal playlists are mixed with YT Music’s playlists, and I don’t like how my own playlists are mixed with premades. I also don’t care for the videos. If I wanted to watch something, I’d go to YouTube... I don’t need the prompt to watch. I also just spent 10 minutes reorganizing a personal playlist by artist’s name and when I exited, it completely reset. Waste of my time. Even the web-interface sucks. You can’t sort your playlists by title, artist, etc. I liked how Google Play had genres, moods, decades sorted — this new way has no organization and less channels. I pay $15 a month for my family to use this app — it certainly doesn’t feel like it comes from Google..Version: 4.07

Pls fixWhenever I click on a song it switches to another random one. Idk if it’s just for me but it’s really annoying. And other times it’s completely fine.Version: 5.07

Good but could be greatOverall the interface is good. Recommendations are nice but one thing I wish is that when I search by an artist that I can then go in and just browse their discography without it jumping into the first song I have for that artist. Would be great to also have it so each album is separated out easier instead of a massive list of all their songs.Version: 4.50

New update Ruined the AppThe update from 19 March 2022 completely ruined the listening experience. I didn’t mind the ads or the requests for upgrade, but now whenever I click a song it takes me to a radio of that artists songs instead of the song I want. No longer can see what’s going to play next. No longer can listen to the music I liked. No more shuffle on the list that I created. Why bother using this app at all now?! Should just make it an app only available to youtube subscribers if you’re going to take away all functionality. Completely useless app now..Version: 4.69

MONEYThis is proof that google has been bought out by EA.Version: 2.57

BrokenThe most recent update seems to have broken the app - I click on the icon, it sits loading at the logo screen for 10secs, then force quits. I pay good money for this app, and I would also like a refund on my past few months’ use as it has also been buggy, continually pausing my downloaded songs, and saying songs I know I have downloaded are not actually downloaded. Please fix this ASAP and contact me to provide a refund..Version: 3.57

Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago..Version: 4.48

Great app but needs improvementI love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum..Version: 4.39

AlmostWhen I first got the App years ago it was great. The app is still working wonderfully when it comes to finding songs, getting recommendations, and adding music to a playlist. And I really like the inclusion of accessing community playlists. What irks me is that I’m having issues editing my playlist off the app. I’ll spend time, kill a GOOD bit of time, editing a playlist and it won’t save! I’ll hit the editing pencil icon, move songs around, hit done, then I refresh the playlist to find that it’s still the same. It’s really really frustrating! And I can’t get continuous play off my downloaded playlists often. It will stop play early in the playlist, or glitch out altogether and stop at one song. When it stops at one song it will usually say, “unable to find playlist.” Really tired of this as well. These really shouldn’t be issues. It’s kind of the core of the App to have these functions. It’s like having a movie service subscription, but you only get to watch on odd numbered days. What’s the point?! Really shouldn’t have to point out that the focus on the developers should be to make sure the core services that the App provides are working as they should. Let’s make sure the App does what it’s advertised to do before we get ambitious..Version: 4.64

Not working when offlineI’m not happy about the behavior under unstable cellular environment or offline. This is really common when you road trip. 1. When I’m playing online music (my mix) and driving into non-cellular coverage area, the music stops and it stops forever. It should continue playing my downloaded music automatically without me touching the screen. It’s dangerous to do so while driving and I cannot easily navigate to the download page (see #2). 2. When I suddenly lose the cellular connection and I want to play downloaded music, I need to navigate to the “Library” page. However, the app somehow still thinks I have the connection and tries to load the page. The page is stuck in that loading circle forever and I cannot head to the downloaded music page. The only way to get around it is to kill the app, go to Airplane mode, go back to that page, and now you can see the offline version. It’s so ironic that you have to have real network connection to play the downloaded music..Version: 3.85

DisgustingI am appalled by this business model. There are already well established services and apps. This brings nothing new. It actually lacks everything that makes a streaming app good. If you want the stuff that makes it better you actually have to pay and you still get a subpar app. TLDR Google is making you pay way too much for something you can find in other apps for much less moolah...and it still sucks....Version: 2.37

What happened?!?The old app was so great then after the last 3-4 months of updates it’s become extremely laggy, takes literally 5-10 seconds to start playing a song, constantly tells me I haven’t downloaded a song when it’s already downloaded and in a playlist...... This app WAS amazing, so good, idk what’s happened but the updates have basically ruined it for me, hopefully this gets sorted in future updates. I will be leaving after 1 more if nothing has improved..Version: 2.39.3
