    Used to work absolutely fine but ever since the last update it has started acting funny. I have been trying to play my downloaded songs since the last three days but each time I do so, it plays for a few seconds and stops altogether, directing me to my home screen. Re-installed the app, restarted my phone, cleared caches, checked settings but nothing is helping, at all. Please, just do something about this as I only use this app for songs.

  • by Laura Privett

    Love this app! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T SHUT IT DOWN! It's one of the only apps I love to listen to music when I'm off wifi, out of cell service range, or just bored of the other music apps. If you truly must "Google team" then please make it possible to download my cds to YouTube music. Some of them are not on YouTube or play music. Thank you. =)

  • App works well, but CarPlay doesn’t...

    by Disruptor2010

    Keeping it short and sweet, the app works pretty well overall. The only issue I run into is with CarPlay and this app. While the music works fine, you can access all your playlists, etc., two bugs are present. The first is that it doesn’t always show my “Now Playing”. When I click on it sometimes it just sits there at the same screen and freezes, never going to now playing. If I reboot the Google Play Music app or the phone itself, then it usually fixes itself and shows the “Now Playing” screen with what Google Play Music is playing. The bigger issue, however, is whenever I am using the Google Play Music app I lose all functionality for Siri through CarPlay. The icon of Siri shows up if I activate it, but you can’t speak and have it recognize your voice. Once Siri “beeps” so you know to start talking, no matter what you say it doesn’t recognize your voice and just sits there. Then, it stops the voice input thing and goes right back to the song that was playing. It’s quite frustrating/annoying. The moment you leave the app and go into, say, Apple Music or something else it works fine. It’s only when you are using Google Play Music and music is playing. Please fix this and it goes to 5 stars :).

  • by Tony Rainone

    3 month free trial, then only $9.99. 100% worth it. The most comprehensive, complete, and organized music app for Android. I've discovered soo much in such short time and I'm hooked. Play in your car with bluetooth and let the quality wash over you. No other app comes close. Don't waste money on buying songs ever again. love this improved app✔

  • Great app, but is more buggy than ever.

    by AlexanderDaniel

    Play Music is and always will be the only music app I ever use. It’s always worked how it needs to and is simple to use, with great quality content. BUT, I don’t know if it’s just the iOS app, but it seems like it gets buggier after every update. I have a lot of problems when I’m trying to use the app with my google home. Most of the time it won’t even connect to it when I want to cast music. When I try to delete a song from a playlist, it instead deletes a different one that’s a couple songs up and the one I originally tried to delete stays there, and I can’t get rid of it. And something I noticed today, if I try to select ‘play next’ on a song while I’m listening to music, it stops the music completely and a whole other song from a completely different playlist is selected and shows up on the screen. AND now when I listen to a playlist on shuffle, it plays one song, and then the music stops after that and doesn’t continue playing the rest of the playlist. It seems like the more you try to fix something that doesn’t need fixing, the worse the app gets.

  • by T Johnson

    Something went wrong! Over the last few months across the last two updates (Note IV) it will only play about 10 to 15 seconds of PURCHASED SONGS or ANY SONG THAT IS DOWNLOADED ON MY PHONE! Not going to lie, I am more than miffed and have resorted using other music apps. At this point I never want to use it again. I would like to see this fixed because this was my go-to app.

  • Often CarPlay issues

    by MrBStill

    I love the Play Music app way more than iTunes or Apple Music. I have use Google play and play music for a long time. But once I got a new vehicle with the CarPlay actually or feature the Google play music has quite often caused issues. Whether it was now playing this song or delaying to be pulled up in the app or stating there is not connection when trying to pull up playlist. Majority of the time I am using my actual phone to start play music from a playlist or simply the library. I have seen other reviews with the same response, so I know I am not the only one. I’m sure part of the reason is because I am using an Apple phone with google play music. But also using the CarPlay feature seems to support more iPhone features than Google features. Even still I would prefer to use Google play music rather than the Apple Music. Excited for when there has been and update sent out for this issue to be resolved. Honestly, this is the only reason for a 3 star rating. It’s pretty important! Removing that dilemma; EASILY A 5 STAR RATING.!.!

  • by Chris Kimber

    Once i figured out where everything was, how to use the app it was great! i listen to a very wide variety of music, as well as new and old. The sound quality was great, but the app did use alot more data than pandora did. Also, while using for the trail month i found alot of content that I had on Pandora or Spotify does not exist on Play music. Which is unfortunate, my family wanted to subscribe to a muaic app, we tried this one first. It didnt work out, we went to pandora instead.

  • Love, love, love!!

    by Findingdoriat40

    I had this app on my phone, on my iPhone, while it was still in iOS app. Don’t ask me to remember the name of the app, I just remember receiving an email that it was going to be Google play as of January 1 and again don’t ask me what year it was either😊 I love the way Google play place through my speakers, while I’m in the car. I have a 2006 Honda Civic, so as you can imagine some of my speakers don’t work. But listening to this app, instead of fruit named applications, Google play definitely takes the cake. The only thing I would change is that, if you would just start the radio station with the person, persons, group, act whatever.... start the song someone is REQUESTING FIRST. They are requesting that SONG that particular TIME and for a PARTICULAR REASON (NEEDED it THEN)and most of the time, they don’t even get to hear the song the request that started the station.....!And that is a BUMMER!!

  • by deepanshu sood

    The app has improved a lot since I last updated my review. Though comparing it with Youtube Music is an entirely different story which is leaps and bounds ahead of this app. The new releases feature has improved a lot now making music discovery a lot easier, a gripe that I had with the previous version. Getting this free with Youtube Music is cherry on the cake as some songs which are yet not available on Youtube Music can generally be found here.

  • by Sophia Ferris

    Honestly so much better than Spotify. My only complaints are that you can't remove a song from your playlist from the listening menu (you have to go to it in your playlist, which is annoying if a song comes up that I don't actually like anymore and just want out of my playlist), and that sometimes the albums don't display correctly. It only happens with my uploaded library, but it seems to pick one album cover from the artist and use it for all their songs. Otherwise it's great!

  • Issues

    by 959Ren

    This is really the only music app I use. I, personally, like how it works, but that's because I've been using it for years. It's not the same for a new user; the layout is easy to get confused with. I have had to deal with issues with deleting songs from my playlists. Trying to delete one song will delete the song one, two, sometimes even three songs above it. It comes and goes, but it's still a reoccurring problem that I've had for the longest time, and when it comes around, I often lose songs for good, because there's no way I could keep track of all 300 of them. And, though I have 300 songs, I may end up listening to some more than others because the Shuffle option isn't that great. Play Music is also pretty buggy-- the panels that come up for adding songs will sometimes jump across the screen. Speaking of, I do wish that there was an option to simply add a bunch of songs to a playlist all at once rather than one by one.

  • Its great but..

    by Maddysuperstar

    So i just got this app, and i think its amazing! But (this problem also might be because i just started using it) when i play songs and i “favorite” them or whatever they go into a playlist (obviously) so i thought if i did that to all the songs i want to listen to later i could just do that, but the problem is I can’t. It won’t let me hit the play button and if i hit the song, this thing comes up saying something like “do u want to start a radio with songs related to (insert songs title here)” but it won’t let me listen to the song i want. Secondly, when i go to the search bar thing to search for a select song, they come up as “radios” and not the song itself. All i want is to be able to search and find the song i want, “favorite it” and listen to it later. Other then that, its a really good app I recommend it!

  • It’s good generally but it crashes a lot

    by Aimalohi

    1) This app isn’t attractive in the way that other music platforms are. 2) It can be confusing the use when you first start. It’s not a very user-friendly interface 3) IT CRASHES A LOT. If I play a song and leave the app, it stops for a while then picks up again and stays okay as long as I don’t open the app again. If I do, the app crashes totally. Occasionally (like today) the songs kept breaking briefly (for about a second to three seconds at a time). This app has been crashing for almost as long as I’ve been using it. I got a new phone and things were good for almost three months and recently (a week or so ago), I had to start using that work-around where I don’t open the app a second time to avoid crashing. I honestly much prefer the web player. It’s more attractive and doesn’t crash.

  • by Jared Baird

    I use this on my iPad, if that says enough. oh and pay the ten bucks for premium/YouTube red. you get both. just trust me, you wont look back. why cant I fetch lyrics from the app? the assistant pulls up lyrics from Google play, why not put them right in the app? please? it has everything else sorted nicely. links to videos and whatnot. but no lyrics. please fix that. please.

  • by Twinkletooth3

    Worth every penny! Almost every song I listen to is on here. The only thing that's needed is a history of separate songs that one has heard. I had a radio playing and I absolutely loved this one song, unfortunately I only remember the cover.... A history of the single songs and not the play lists/ radios would be a good addition

  • Has potential

    by DanielXDU

    Honestly, you guys have the best algorithm for finding similar musicians and the ability to have radio stations based off a single song is pretty awesome, but come on guys you’re one of the largest tech companies in the world and you don’t updated your app in over 3 months. There’s more than enough bugs to warrant an update. For one, I can’t even stream from this app to my Chromecast audio. It just never works. Also for whatever reason half of my thumbs up playlist disappears mid-stream when I go from Wi-fi to LTE. I have feeling that this has to do with beef with Apple, but honestly that’s no excuse. I pay for a premium membership and seemingly simple problems like this should be fixed. Also an Apple TV app would be nice or at least have the ability to display album artwork when streaming would be appreciated.

  • by Amit Limaye

    one feature thats extremely annoying is the swipe-to-delete gesture. it so happens that if you swipe incorrectly, you end up deleting songs from your playlist. undo option is convenient but goes away if you are not quick enough to click it. suggestion: if there is a way to enable or disable or customize(left add 2 playlist) this swipe gesture i could disable it while others who like the feature could keep on using it.

  • Love the app, but...

    by nadwodny

    I love this app and have been paying the $10 for about 4 years now. I feel it’s the best app available and worth the money. Only issue I have is when I change music in playlist or radio, It keeps skipping songs and I have to go back 3-4 times because it keeps trying to skip until I get message prompting me to “try again” then it works. It gets annoying when I’m just surfing for something good. It’s not my service cuz I have full bars and internet and still a problem. I’m sure it has to do with buffering and streaming and not being downloaded but it does get old!! Other than that.. the app itself has all the music I need and want! I always suggest google play!

  • by quondarius woody

    it's great when you want to listen to music but ever since I updated my phone(note 9) on April 4th 2019, I have not been able to open the app and play music without the whole app closing after 10 seconds of playing!! I don't want to uninstall the app because my music would be deleted but I'm at the limit of my patience

  • Not one I want.

    by Fatbellygummybears

    This app I deleted off my phone. I got this app so I could stream my music offline. I was going on a trip, the trip was about a two hour long ride. I downloaded the app to stream my music, and I searched up a song I liked. The problem was I went under all categories I could find and couldn’t fine my music. All I could find was radio stations. I found this app from my friend who owns a Samsung and already had this app on her phone. I own a IPhone 6+ and decided that I would try this app. It sounded good because my friend and I would listen to the music together. The music played fine and she had tons of music on there. That is why I downloaded it. I don’t have the app anymore. I am going to try the app again, but I’m sure it still won’t work. Still a great app for Samsung’s.

  • T

    by disavibrating

    This app is my preferred method of streaming music but it is not elegant or refined at all. For example, album artwork does not fit the screen, it is zoomed for some reason when you’re playing a song from that album which just looks weird. There is a playlist of songs recently added to your library however no matter how many songs i’ve just added, the playlist never updates. Songs have randomly disappeared from my library. Some songs stop/start playing halfway through, others don’t play at all. I think some added features could be useful, such as the ability to look up lyrics. I have nothing to compare this app to because i’ve never used another streaming service but I’d say this could definitely be improved upon.

  • My all time favorite music player app

    by lipbiter100

    I absolutely love this music player. I’ve been using it for years. It’s the only music player that I can put literally any song that I download on it. It can hold up to 50,000 songs, which is incredible because I have so many songs that I want to download but other music players just don’t hold more than 100. The only thing is I wish that the shuffler was better. I have so many songs on it, yet I still feel like it repeats songs over and over again. I’ve had some songs on the app for awhile that it has never played once and others that it has played like 10 times. The app overall is amazing. I just hope they can fix the shuffling problem.

  • Needs Some TLC

    by Zombiekiller1984

    I am a huge fan of the product moreso than the app. Having all of this great music at your fingertips is a blessing and at times a curse (how many playlists can one person create???) I find the one standout thing that bothers me most about this app (because it happens SO frequently) is the constant crashing. Start adding an album to your library and the app lags, if a song is playing it starts skipping, then app freezes and you must close to reboot. If a song is playing and you go to the search, it will sometimes freeze up and crash. Please perfect this app, find what is causing it to crash so often and eliminate it. Google Play Music is such an awesome service, but it becomes an issue when the app won't let you play it without incident.

  • Problematic

    by rtothejizzle

    As of the current build, I cannot integrate the player with the built in controls on my iPhone. When I swipe up to control playback, my player is not available. Music will be playing, but I can not pause or skip. The same can be said for controlling playback on my headphones. This was not a problem with the previous build(s) I had installed. Dev Request: create a better way to report issues with the catalog. I had an instance where the names of the songs were correct, but the actual track played was incorrect. Feature request: create a way to do favorite album lists instead of having to add whole albums. Not sure how to articulate this, but it’d be nice to have a top 10 albums list to share.

  • I expected this to be less buggy

    by Ceuriss

    I love the fact that I can access my songs from anywhere with Google Play Music, however this is diminished by the fact that whenever I’m connected to Bluetooth or chromecast, skipping songs is a nightmare, even with a fast internet connection. The app stutters and randomly pauses my music and sometimes skips more than one song. Also, when changing songs, it temporarily stops playing audio to the Bluetooth device even though the song is definitely playing. These functions work normally when using headphones or just playing on the phones built in speaker. So, overall, a useful app, but needs some fine tuning in Bluetooth, skipping, and smooth playback.

  • Really annoying bug

    by BionicBicycle

    So the app works fine. I love the google play service. Had it for years. But with this most recent I’ve noticed an incredibly annoying bug. Whenever I’m trying to edit the queue to shift songs around, the app crashes. And sometimes if I try to add something to my queue via the “play next” feature, mainly with radios, it’ll add the song to the queue, but it won’t be next. It’ll add it to the top of the queue. Which means the song won’t play in the radio. Also it won’t let me move when I try to edit the queue because it’ll crash if I do. Please fix this. It’s my favorite music app and this kinda makes it annoying to use.

  • Apple CarPlay is buggy

    by Joker54974

    Google play music is great as an app by itself. The radio station and playlist has some of the best recommendations. Compared to Its competitors this really lacks with Apple Car Play. If you hear a song you like you can’t thumbs up or add it to your library through Apple Car Play. Also, the Car Play is very buggy it freezes on almost every trip. The music still plays but I’ll usually have to force close the app on my phone and restart for it to show on Car Play. Sometimes even restarting the app doesn’t work so just have to deal with no Car Play. If Car Play worked as intended, and have better user functionality to add music to the library this would be 5 Stars.

  • Could make some improvements

    by Redge R

    First off I love the variety of radio stations available. This app probably has the most sub-genres compared to other apps. Audio quality is also very good. I would love to be able to download single songs and not entire albums. Sure, I could make a playlist and download it later. But I feel like that's an unnecessary extra step or two. Why not just have the download option available for each track like most other apps offer? Unfortunately, this one lacking feature is enough for me to unsubscribe to the paid service. If they offer this in the future, I might come back to this app

  • Used to be a good app, but now contains bug after bug

    by carosnyd

    This app has great aesthetics, is really easy to navigate, and has all the music you want. However, if I try and skip more than two songs, the icon on my lock screen disappears, and I have to unlock my phone and open the app, click “try again” and then skip the song. Terribly inconvenient. If someone else is sharing your account, aka you’re using more than one of your allowed 6 devices, then the app will pause and give an error message. Imagine losing music in the middle of your workout just because your family member wanted to hear some Lil Uzi. Very frustrating.

  • Has Bugs

    by josie.delp

    I’ve had this app for a while and I am just now having bug problems. When I go to add songs to my library, instead of adding them to the top of the playlist, it adds them onto the bottom. I tried making a new playlist and I cooperated for a bit, and then did the same as before. I also tried to delete a song off of a playlist because I had it on there twice, and it won’t let me delete either. I have also tried moving songs around on the playlist, and they never stay in the spot that I put them in. I used to love this app but now I’m looking into other ones.

  • Creates the best mixes!

    by Tigershark72005

    Ugh google play music makes the best random playlists! They are literally FIRE! Pick any song you want to listen to and on the right hand side click and look for “start insta mix.” From your entire music collection, google will find the best songs that are most similar to the song you’ve chosen and create a random playlist for you to listen to. No other music app does it. It’s google play’s best feature. It has the best algorithm for pairing similar songs from any other music app!

  • Needs to be updated.

    by One&Only Mareeya

    I've had this app for about 5 years now. It works pretty well but I noticed about a year ago that I couldn't find my recently added music (which is how I would listen to my new favorite songs). That was one of my favorite features of the app and now (unless I add it to a playlist) I cannot find the songs I just added to my library...It's very annoying, I've actually considered cancelling my subscription because of it. This app has not been updated since I first download it back in 2013....Maybe bug fixes but that's it. I would like to see a difference in the app....please update it!!!

  • Disappearing songs??

    by hooman 2.0

    This rarely happened before but now it’s happening more frequently. I would just be listening to music and suddenly almost all of my songs in my “thumbs up” or other playlists disappear, only leaving several songs in there. I would try and restart my phone or refresh the app but it doesn’t work, so the only option I have is to continuously deleting the app and redownloding it. The songs do come back but I’d have to redownload all of the songs again to listen to them offline. My internet is perfectly fine and it also happens when I’m using data.

  • Good but needs fixing.

    by Mr McSlime

    I love this app because it offers a lot of music and features for an awesome price, but there is a bug that has never seemed to be fixed and it has to do with playlists. Whenever I make a playlist and organize it, after I click done and wait a few minutes, it will move certain songs to other parts of the playlist where I don’t want them. This may not bother everyone but it bothers me because I’m very organized and I can’t keep my playlists organized because they always change somehow.

  • Great App But Only One Problem

    by Costaki

    Love the app and have been using for over a year or maybe two now, but lately i have been running into this problem that when i want to delete something out of a playlist it deletes the song that is one or two above it. This frustrates me because then i have to figure out how to get the song deleted that i actually wanted to delete and add the new song back and on top of that remembering what song i deleted out of the many in my playlist l. If this bug is fix it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks You.

  • Good but easily could be great

    by Boknows89036

    I’ve always used google music and never had a problem with it, but there are a few things that could be updated. For instance, when making a playlist you can add all the songs you want, but you’re not able to remove songs. Sometimes I’ll make a playlist then decide I don’t want a song on there but instead of removing it I would have to make a whole new playlist. Also, when on shuffle mode I’ve noticed songs will repeat even thought the entire playlist has not been played through. Other than that everything else is great

  • Really great, but one major bug

    by Akshay95014

    I’ve been using Google Play Music for a few years now, and I use it through the website on my computer and through the app on my iPhone. It used to work perfectly but now, if i “thumbs up” a song on the browser, it shows up on the Thumbs Up playlist on the website but it does not show up on my iPhone’s Thumbs Up playlist, and vice versa. I’ve tried manually refreshing my app through the settings panel, but this has no effect. Usually a few weeks after I’ve added a song to my library or given it a thumbs up, it finally shows up on my iPhone app.

  • Love google play music, app is only okay though

    by SarahSmiles22

    I love google play music, it is a great system to listen to music from. But the app is only okay. It doesn’t connect with the music you put on if you are using it online. So your playlists are different for example from the app to opening it online. And then my music is always stopping even though it says that it is playing, so I have to go back and press pause then play again. Usually happens when I reopen the app or unlocking my phone. It is very annoying. Also, it is hard to search for music and go back to the music list you had open.

  • Best application ever!!!

    by JohnnyComeHome

    If you are a music lover then you can't beat Google Play's Unlimited Music Plan. I would easily spend ten dollars a month on music (that's not even on CD). However, for ten bucks a month you are able to download unlimited music from new releases to your favorite album that was lost years ago. What sets Goofle Play apart from Apple music or any other platform is it also stores all of your previously purchased music! You always have your music library with you on multiple devices!

  • Pros and improvement

    by iLURS

    The app is wonderful if you have a music library from iTunes or have it in file. Just upload it and you can access it anywhere, you can even ask your google home to play it for you! It’s Very good on storing. And best part is free. When you have unknown music file it can even give you a a suggestion of what it is from what artist and album it is. Very useful The improvement is more gesture support and easy search when looking for songs. You can’t really search your own music library only online

  • No problems for me

    by HoneyWhiteHorror

    I use Google Music on a 5th gen iPod Touch as well as my Samsung Galaxy S6 with data and/or wifi and it's always worked for me, I've never had a problem with Google Music. Now that I'm a mom, I use Google Music for my baby daughter whether we are in the backyard or in a crazy Walmart during Christmas rush, it's pretty great and also great if you like to be introduced to all sorts of new artists solely based on channels or stations playing genres versus airtime-type "popular" music, but it has that, too!

  • Google Music vs. Apple Music

    by Faithfulwings77

    These two apps are pretty much the same except for ONE BIG DIFFERENCE... Apple Music offers the lyrics to songs by clicking the properties of the song you're playing... right at your finger tips... Google we need to get with the times!!!! There's no reason not to offer lyrics when you have them available on your google search engine as if it were coming from google music. Why not integrate this capability to Google Play Music while listening? It's very inconvenient to have to get out of the app to go to the search engine to search for lyrics... lyrics that apparently lead me right back to Google Play. Seems like a simple connection on the Google Play Music interface?! Don't you think? This is a deal breaker for me... as much as I love Google Play Music I may have to move on... It doesn't make any sense when you clearly have it available...!!! I'll come back to give it 5 stars once this problem is fixed...

  • Great service, nice app, terrible integration for Apple CarPlay

    by Daverson

    For an iOS user it’s weird to love this app so much. I’m able to get my entire music library in one place streaming anywhere I need it. The streaming radio service is nice, playlists are nice... The one thing I cannot get over is how useless the Google Play is on the Apple CarPlay service. You can not search your entire library. Playlists are limited. Radio streaming is very buggy. Part of me wants to just pay the money to covert everything over to iTunes. Overall it’s nice. Just really need to overhaul their CarPlay capability. I know it’s not much better on AA.

  • Please Google?

    by Sexy Bowl Llama

    Google – Please explain the why a premium paying user is limited to 4 devices they can de-authorities per year? Asking as many people have multiple devices they cycle through for personal and work, and sometimes you are unable to remove devices you no longer have in order to add new devices. Google Music is a great service that I find value in using every single day. This is why I’m wishfully putting above comment in the comments.

  • Too many Advertisements

    by WLBLACK42107

    I really like using the app but the advertisements are getting more and more. I understand needing advertisement but it is starting to get ridiculous. I chose the app to get away from all the adds on the radio. We listen to Disney stations 99% of the time for the grandkids and for us and the ads disrupts the mood. Also the volume is way too loud especially compared to the volume of the songs. My husband and I both downloaded the same app and his doesn’t have advertisements, so what is up with that? Please minimize the ads and the volume? Thank you!

  • Love it.

    by risrae387

    I absolutely love Google Play. But recently I've been having issues with my thumbs up playlist. It sometimes only shows one song in it even though there's hundreds. I have an iPhone and I'm thinking maybe this is the issue? Anyways, it just shows one song and the only thing that fixes this issue is uninstalling and reinstalling the app. It's happening quite a bit and it's a little disappointing considering I love absolutely everything else about the app!

  • Love this app

    by giairmoe

    Only advice to make it even better. An option where you can get the lyrics of the songs would be nice. Also when we create a station based on a song, sometimes some of the songs that are recommended are far off the genre and aren’t that similar. Besides that this app is totally worth the subscription. The lyrics option should be for those who are subscribed of course

  • Could be better

    by clint mcclure

    The app works well for the most part, but there are a few things that are irritating. The major one being that songs are randomly removed from your library/playlists without any notification, so you don’t know a song is missing until you are looking for it specifically. Another problem is that it seems to get really slow when you’re trying to scroll through a playlist. If these problems were fixed the app would be perfect

  • No issues, but...

    by Poisoned__Dreams

    iOS app is great except that I can’t access my podcasts. I haven’t had any issues with the music playing through Bluetooth, and the only time I have had Music stop is when I’m playing my library from the cloud and my internet is spotty. Anyway, podcasts are available when I use Google Play on a computer, but there is no option for podcasts on the iOS app. I don’t really understand why, but I hope Google fixes this. I have not seen any response to this issue from Google itself.

  • Great playlist, intuitive, some bugs

    by Zac854

    overall this is a really awesome music app. It is easy to navigate artist, find specific songs, or explore new genres. The family plan is great I've been able to add my mom to it which is nice since it is not something she would normally get her self. I do have a recurring bug, my thumbs up playlist periodically will disappear, this has been an issue for a long time, not sure if it is a problem with other users.

  • Once great, now okay.

    by Topramenater

    This was a great service for quite a while, but has recently been growing more and more unreliable. I keep all of my playlists saved to my phone and, despite this, music still takes a long time to begin playing or freezes when switching songs. In the last few weeks this has become worse as, every several songs, the app can go silent in the middle of a song which is terrible when driving. Hopefully they figure out a solution soon.

  • Great app falls short

    by Eckka

    Lovvve the app but it has a couple issues. Sometimes it’ll cut off for no reason and I have to go back to the app which has apparently crash and find the song I was jamming to whilst driving. Another thing although it’s a great music app it fails in comparison with others such as Apple Music which has the read the lyrics option and the search by lyrics option. Other than that I think this is a really good music app

  • Coming from Apple Music this was a GREAT choice

    by Que Charles

    I LOVE the feature where you type in a song, and it automatically creates a radio station from the song after the requested song plays.... the music choices are always ON POINT! Songs i totally forgot about end up in the mix. I will say I’m not a fan of the stretched cover art for the songs, but that’s the only negative with this app

  • Great app, prone to random glitches

    by roboPANIC

    Great app, tons of music and barely any ads. But it randomly will get weird issues or bugs with the app crashing. For example, this week when I listen to the today’s hits radio it tries to play NC17 by Travis scot and the app crashes!! Then I can’t listen to that station for the rest of the day, because it will keep trying to play the same song and crashing over and over again...

  • Legit

    by Yoyoyoboiii

    I love this app! Even though I have an iPhone I got this app because I prefer the options. The only thing I would like to see improved is maybe add like a button so you can automatically sort your music by title or artist alphabetically, because it’s kind of annoying to do it by hand. Other than that this app is fantastic, they had the new BTS album within a day

  • Great app with a little bit of a problem

    by Comm_Sheppard

    App is amazing when it works which is pretty much all the time except for when bringing he phone outta lock while playin music seems to be pretty rough transition. Music will abruptly stop and have to manually restart it. This happens either while just using the device for music playback on the device or through a 3.5mm line in for the car. iPhone 6 Plus iOS version: 11.0.3

  • Music issues


    Well today I was hearing music and when I tried clicking a radio station it said it was unable to play so then I went to another station and it won’t let me play music so hen I deleted the app and downloaded it again and the same thing happend like before google if your reading this please fix this And it’s every buggy

  • Would be 5 stars

    by Nannymole

    I would absolutely love this app, if there was a way to alphabetize my playlist without scrolling through and moving all my songs. I want to be able to hit “edit playlist” then have there be a button that says “sort” then “alphabetical”, like the iTunes app has, because I love my google music, I have yet to be disappointed, other than the fact that it’s a pain to alphabetize 😩😩😩

  • Help !!!!

    by jazev06

    I don’t know what’s wrong, but everything got erased and it doesn’t let me browse anymore and I’m confused on what to do. I tried to sign out and I also tried to fix my settings and delete the app and re-download it again. When I got to recents, it shows nothing. Did this happen to anybody? Just please tell me if anybody else had this problem I like this app better than pandora in my opinion.

  • What are you smoking

    by KamSoldier

    I see so many users that complain the app doesn’t do this or that. It’s buggy. It’s slow. It may be for many users but I have had awesome, reliable and speedy service. Never once has it randomly closed. I can find new songs the instant I hear then on the air. I can download a play from any of my devices, including my car. YMMV

    I love this app. However, since the latest update I cant listen to music I downloaded offline when I use to be able to. I chatted with a rep and we worked on it for a while. The only thing that worked was creating a playlist, downloading the playlist and then adding each song individually to that playlist. PLEASE FIX ASAP 😔

  • Almost perfect

    by Victorious Zanderson YouTube

    I love this app but...can u guys add a lyric service. Sometimes I find songs I really like and I want to know the lyrics but then I remember oh yeah they don’t have a lyrics section so I go back to Apple Music (which has disappointed me a lot)


    by Lackilies

    This app honestly doesn’t receive all the hype and praise it deserves. I’ve been using Google music for a month now and love it! It’s very specific to the genres of music you choose for radios and even has pre-selected music for your moods- sleepy, calm, rainy day, snowy day, chill vibes.... all you can think of. Spotify low key has nothing on this.... and no some rep from the company isn’t writing this; it’s DEADASSLY this good

  • ❤️ Google Play Music!

    by BAR112

    Great source of free music on my iPad and also on my desktop. I’m not one to need to hear a specific song but just love to listen to whatever Google throws out there—it’s a great way to discover new music and bands! Thanks, Google!

  • Love GPM

    by NiceMinnesota

    Best music app out there.

  • Great app

    by young boy ramen

    Bought jbl and got three months free

  • Good service app is broken

    by Designlove56

    The app needs to be setup for modern 2018 iPad Pro, and there is something wrong with the app that is making the gear icon always spin when the app is open causing the app to drain the devices battery life badly. Please fix this ASAP.

  • Love google play music but please fix apple CarPlay compatibility

    by Louish

    Google play music is great but plug it into the car and everything doesn’t work correctly. List don’t show. Music stops playing and start a new song. And more let’s make it better the Apple Music.

  • Good but Android version is slightly better

    by gsergio96

    I used to use this app on android and loved it. It felt perfect for me but when I switched to iPhone I noticed something that's not in the iPhone version that I used to use all the time. When listening to my library on shuffle, I can't easily adjust my queue the way I could on android by simply dragging a song to a specific part of my queue. Nor am I able to easily click on the 3 dots and click play next all from the queue. I have to get out of the queue find the song to be able to hit play next. Other than that everything else is just about to the same as android and I'll continue to use play music, but I hope that these small features would be implemented to the iPhone version soon

  • Okay APP

    by BOBOX916

    This is app has a lot of potential. I would like to see an update to fix bugs, figments for iPad screens, and an update look. Where are you google?

  • I love it but......

    by classofw22

    I love the app but for some reason I can’t even play any songs when I’m in school for the past few days.It keeps telling me that there is no WiFi when there is.

  • Needs better organization

    by AshCash205334

    The app is decent, however it needs to be a little more organized. For example, being able to view new releases by category would be helpful.

  • Please please!!!!!!!

    by PacoRamirez29

    Can we please get an Apple Watch app please!!!!!! I need you !!!!

  • Design needs a refresh

    by Onepissedoffangrymofo

    So I like using the app it’s functionality is great and I like that I can pay for my YouTube and my music for a great price. BUT and this is a major but the color scheme for the app is soooo ugly orange and white? I’m so tired of looking at it really considering switching to Hulu and Spotify combo just because it looks better please add a dark theme or something

  • It is great

    by awin AWIN

    It allows you to turn your phone off and listen to it unlike YouTube you have to keep the app open. And that is pretty cool

  • Great😒👍🏽


    I have to subscribe on here to listen to music offline sooo.. I don’t know how to do that but I am hoping that this is how😂

  • Could be better

    by clint mcclure

    The app works well for the most part, but there are a few things that are irritating. The major one being that songs are randomly removed from your library/playlists without any notification, so you don’t know a song is missing until you are looking for it specifically. Another problem is that it seems to get really slow when you’re trying to scroll through a playlist. If these problems were fixed the app would be perfect

  • It’s... “Functional”

    by qeertyjhdsdghyji

    It serves its purpose of playing music that you have purchased and streaming it across your devices. But; it has a constant issue with downloading music. It will be stuck a state of downloading without finishing the download of a few of the songs.

  • So many options!

    by Mar Long 765

    I love my google music subscription never getting rid of it so much music in one spot it has introduced me to so many new artist!

  • Needs EQ for iOS

    by Amataki Rock

    It’s nice having access to Play Music on my iOS devices but the min volume over Bluetooth headphones is way too loud for quiet settings- we need an EQ or adjustment settings.

  • Similar to Grown Women

    Absolutely wonderful channel. If I get this next job, will subscribe. Thanks for the trial which I am enjoying.

  • hey.. quick question

    by Smallpiglet

    the app keeps going in and out like music wise.. I would lock my phone listen to it like regular then it starts to buffer and not play.. Then when I open the app it crashes.. Can yu guys fix it please ??

  • Solid music app

    by nicknamejlaw

    I have used Apple Music in the past. I prefer google play. I found the selection is greater than Amazon and more user friendly than Apple Music. As a plus it integrates well with google home and my other smart speakers without my phone. So I can stream music on my speakers at home without phone notification interruptions.

  • Good app but not awesome

    by soggywaffle21

    First you gotta pay to skip second you pick an specific album and it does one song from the album or radio really dumb feature in my opinion besides that good app

  • Average music app at best

    by paperclip533

    This app does the basics well, you are able to download for offline easily. But there aren’t as many user friendly playlists as Spotify, not to mention the lack of other friendly features like lyrics or an auto generated playlist for running based on your running pace. The CarPlay side desperately needs a new update. Please add a shuffle button to it.

  • Great app

  • Needs sound boost

    by holla 123456789

    I hate how there is no equalizer, but the app is astonishing looking, but enough for a 5 star rating

  • Amazing but just a few problems

    by xExcility

    I love this app but it has some problems. For example it crashes a lot. Also I have this glitch that I am hooked up to my internet and it thinks that I’m offline so when I search up an artist, it pulls up my library. Overall great music app, please just fix some of the problems please😀

  • Sooo are we gonna get an equalizer?

    by ShoutoutCroatia

    is that something to look forward to or should I just shut up?

  • FFS provide an equalizer

    by SSA JR

    It’s 2019. Why on God’s green earth is there no equalizer setting?!

  • iPhone concerns

    by credithour

    The only thing I don’t like about iphone, is you can’t import your own music. Everything has to be payed for,not good.

  • My favorite music app for listening random songs

    by siddhusai44

    Best app to listen music for free. Has good collections. Definitely worth purchasing!

  • Love google

    by UndeadFiesta

    Love Google music but I'm giving it 4 stars because I can't listen to podcasts like the Android app

  • WAS PERFECT now it GETS MORE GLITCHY with every update

    by Scottie McNaughty

    Using this on APPLE & ANDROID. WAS FIVE STARS, but over the last year is gotten more glitchy. It WORKS PERFECT ON ANDROID. I have a feeling the glitchiness has to do with Apple not wanting competition as this app is A MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN iTunes, since you also get YouTube red & can add five people to it free... I've been so happy since I got a Galaxy, so now I only use my iPhone when my kids are playing with my Galaxy. IPHONE USERS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE MISSING. You're spending money on crap. Apple used to be the best, now it's not even 5th place... Steve Jobs would be rolling in his grave seeing that at least 10 android devices leave iPhone in the dust.

  • Update needed

    by Omg68392627

    Keeps crashing when trying to edit queue. Please move play button on album that covers the parental advisory label. I find myself clicking both albums to determine what is what. Also please consider adding lyrics to this platform as well.

  • Issues

    by 959Ren

    This is really the only music app I use. I, personally, like how it works, but that's because I've been using it for years. It's not the same for a new user; the layout is easy to get confused with. I have had to deal with issues with deleting songs from my playlists. Trying to delete one song will delete the song one, two, sometimes even three songs above it. It comes and goes, but it's still a reoccurring problem that I've had for the longest time, and when it comes around, I often lose songs for good, because there's no way I could keep track of all 300 of them. And, though I have 300 songs, I may end up listening to some more than others because the Shuffle option isn't that great. Play Music is also pretty buggy-- the panels that come up for adding songs will sometimes jump across the screen. Speaking of, I do wish that there was an option to simply add a bunch of songs to a playlist all at once rather than one by one.

  • Need functionality to remove songs from a playlist

    by Frankzhlew

    Great app overall. But there is no way to remove a song I accidentally added to a playlist. Shouldn't be hard to implement at all so please give us that; it's a paid service and you are competing with Apple music and Spotify.

  • Much better than YouTube Music

    by prauv

    I just hope Google spends its time on refining this app rather than on YouTube Music.

  • Total

    by Mr Totol


  • Love it.

    by risrae387

    I absolutely love Google Play. But recently I've been having issues with my thumbs up playlist. It sometimes only shows one song in it even though there's hundreds. I have an iPhone and I'm thinking maybe this is the issue? Anyways, it just shows one song and the only thing that fixes this issue is uninstalling and reinstalling the app. It's happening quite a bit and it's a little disappointing considering I love absolutely everything else about the app!

  • Decent UI

    by Jreyes3126

    This app works. Nothing bad about the service but for the love of (insert non offensive term) add support for Siri Shortcuts. And make a more iOS centric app instead of an Android-ish user experience. Also please integrate playlist from GPM to YouTube Music.

  • Great but not perfect

    by 1BWBaer

    I love how you can load cds onto Windows Media then it loads a copy onto Google Music but on the the app itself it has organizing issues such as track 2 comes first then track 1 is next on the list on tablets and phones but a computer then everything’s ok. I think there’s still some bugs to work out.

  • Fix the app for iPhone XS or iPhone XR

    by Ms. Gladia

    The album covers are not designed to work with the notch so the notch covers them which makes it all terrible. Update the app, Google people.
