  • 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 :).

  • 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.

  • 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.!.!

  • Watch issue

    by Aaron Olsen

    App doesn't give watch controls probably now, or doesn't display on watch at all.

  • 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 Albert Colon

    I love using Google apps. I've been using Google Play Music for about 2-3 years. I give it 4 stars because I feel like it's time for a new look.

  • by Jonathan Stogner

    When are we going to be able to set songs/albums/playlists as alarms through the Google clock app?

  • 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 Babatunde Shonubi

    Very goog music app from google

  • 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.

    app crashes

  • 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!

    Great

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 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

  • 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

    by FIX IT ROBLOX JR.

    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 like it slightly better than Apple Music

    by Marcellus_96

    Google play music has a lovely set up and nice and easy to use compared to Apple Music it just simply does what you want it to do! Apple Music is a two step process for everything I want to do Music wise but google play I can find a song quicker and it has a way better options then Apple Music.

  • Stops playing when app is opened

    by Ashkeymaden

    This has been a problem seemingly ever since the newest iOS update or maybe it’s the app... something isn’t right. When I’m playing music in the app (especially streaming a radio) and I open the google play app, the music stops playing even though it shows that it’s not paused. So if I go like a song that’s playing it stops and I have to hit the pause button and then play again to get it to continue playing.

  • Where did my 200+ songs go?

    by lightning_arrow

    Generally speaking, i love this app. I really do. One day i went on the app to listen to my music and one of my playlists simply disappeared. The second playlist with 210 songs is a bit different. The actual playlist is there, all the songs are gone. Another problem is that when i tried to add songs to a playlist, the actual songs wouldn’t appear but the album radio thingy will be there. Im really upset about this.

  • Wonderful

    by Funshootertype

    I have tried ALL the major streaming services and Google Play Music SMOKES em all ! I’ve read a few of these so-called reviews, and I just don’t get these 1-2 star ratings... Either you are freakin’ clueless as to how to properly operate this app or it’s all lies...two options folks.. I have ZERO complaints!! Excellent stream quality, intuitive controls, ultra deep library, just great.

  • Love the app

    by angatlin

    I’ve been using this app for like 7/8 years. I have the family plan and my family all love it as well. The only ask I have, is to create and app for the Apple Watch. Since you can now download music to listen offline, that’ll work for ppl that only have a Bluetooth watch. But if you have connected you can listen both ways. I’d like to leave my phone when I’m working out.

  • One bug...

    by hfdryuihbvdds

    I really love Google Play Music, but I can't give it five stars because it does have one bug. When it's hooked up through Bluetooth in my car, it starts playing automatically when I get back in the car, hang up the phone from a conversation, or if I use the volume knob or button. This happens even if I've closed the app out because I don't want it to play. Very irritating.

  • Love it

    by beiditnjfsios

    I love how most of it is free and let’s pick songs and has great settings. I also love how well it cooperates with me!

  • Good music app. Even better if bundled with YouTube.

    by Hector Art

    I’ve tried them all and I keep coming back to this app. I fell like the selection is bigger on Google Music Ply, except for Spotify. But the thing that makes it the best is the ability to bundle with YouTube Premium.

  • Love it, needs fixes

    by LukinNola

    This is the app I use. It suits my needs as a person who can’t afford to pay for a subscription. iPhone user, but prefer this to Apple Music, etc. I would love specifically the phone version so much more if I could: Be warned if trying to add a song to a playlist that already has the song. Remove songs from playlists. Re-sort playlists and queues. When going to or leaving app the music tends to “skip” or sometimes pause altogether.

  • Super good

    This app is really great and helps me calm down whenever I am stress.

  • I run a podcast and I can't even find it

    by Profoundnyc

    The links don't open up a link in the all and when I search for my own Podcast now I just get random videos. This app has been slowly falling apart and idk why. Update. I actually wrote that 1 year ago and I am having the same issue. I cannot find my podcast through the app but online it shows up fine. What's going on for real?

  • Good but not great

    by Tehevilsmurf

    My husband pays for YouTube Red so Google Play Music is the only music app I use now, but I prefer Spotify to Google. I used to pay for Spotify and we didn't see a point to having both paid subscriptions. I wish you could share playlists with other users, like you could when I switched over on Spotify.

    Only issue is you don’t have the option to actually allow your microphone pick up a song so you can save it

    by eeveep.

    It’s sort of confusing sometimes, but it’s nice. I just need to know what that red, boxed ‘e’ is next to some songs.

  • Please Keep This App

    by bill the soundtrack buyer

    Please keep this app, I’ve been using it since launch and YouTube music is a mess and destroyed my YouTube playlists. Google play music is fantastic and my boyfriend and I will be sad if Google removes it as we have built memories with various playlists over the years.

  • Delete from playlist

    by anon78193

    Every time I try to delete a song from my playlist, it doesn’t delete the song but instead deletes a random song from my playlist. It really seems to hate lil uzi...

  • What I thing about google play music

    by zahra falatoonzadeh

    The app is so good it has the best songs.

  • 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.

  • Awesome

  • 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

  • Needs more

    by Sav1091

    Needs to be more complete. It’s missing complete albums from artists.

  • Awesome app

    by horseloverava

    This app is awesome and I love music so it fits me

  • Works great but needs Siri functionality for 5 stars

    by Hyga

    I have used Google Play Misic for a while now and it is an awesome app. Google will store a lot of your own music and you can subscribe in the same manner as you would with Spotify or Pandora. I personally prefer Google Play Music. The only issue I have is that if I’m in the car I can’t use Siri to play my playlists. It would be really helpful if they’ve added that functionality. Then it wold be worth 5 stars for me.

  • Still have old music from my last phone

    by cubic gaming

    Glad I was able to keep my music that I had from my last phone. The app is good except you can’t buy music from here. If I wanted to buy music, then I have to go to my android tablet to buy music. Do it would be great if you can buy music on the app.

  • 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

  • Thank you!

    by slbmd

    Great service. Great quality entertainment!

  • Still can’t browse new releases by Genre

    by barrosomarco

    Please Google... please!! Bring back the ability to sort/browse new releases by genre. This was one of the best features of this app, but at the moment we are limited to a list only pop/rap. That would make this a 5-star service in my eyes.

    by Lugate'

    I often get an error “Can’t play right now. Please try again later.” Message and for the first time, it was continuous even though all other online services like Pandora were available. They could have a weak or failing infrastructure within Google’s Cloud (GCP) or we’re down hard and unavailable service today 1/11/2019 @ 4:29pm PDT.

    I feel like this app is really good this is the only music app I used it’s really great so far I haven’t seen any bugs or anything wrong with it and I have been using this app for about 3years or longer but I recommend this app

  • 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

  • Good But...

    by Jblake1998

    The application is good; however, some small/big issues I’ve noticed... 1) Sorta complex design and functionality 2) No Theme Setting ; this normally wouldnt be problematic except the aesthetic of the app is pure white; really REALLY bright, so adding a dark theme to the app would be awesome 3) Random Lag/Crashes. 4) Contradictory to #1 - somehow the application is both too complex and also too old/not modern; look at the amazon music app; its got a sleek beautiful feel aesthetically and visually. Just a thought; perhaps redesign the app to be more visually and aesthetically appealing as well as fix the random crashes and also try to reconsider the color scheme; or at least provide some alternative option. Otherwise; great application! :D

  • My opinion on google play music

    by KenchieLoo

    I like everything but I wish there was a choice to filter out bad pictures because I don’t want to see it. I don’t think anyone wants to see it unless they’re a creep. So please google please address this problem and fix this problem as soon as possible. I would really appreciate that. And I think others would to

  • Love The Service

    by Muonic

    The service is great and I find it to be the best that I have used at recommending music that I will like with minimal input. The app itself needs a little bit more polish. Small things like preventing screen kick when plugged in so I can get to thumbs up quickly and maybe a flattening of the menus. It feels like many clicks to get too places.
