  • Missing Google play music Sep 22, 2020

    By westopher718
    In all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me. The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here?? I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over.

  • One “tiny” complaint Sep 24, 2020

    By •Kit Katt•
    Ok, so this app is great if you just wanna listen to music, which I like to do. So I opened the app, and it asked my if I wanted to start my free trial. I said no, because I wanted to save it. Then I exited the app because I didn’t want to use it yet. So that happened yesterday, and when I went on the app today, it said my free trial was ending soon. I checked if I had Premium, and apparently I did. Why did it give me Premium? I didn’t want to use the free trial yet. When I had YT Music on my old iPad, it let me choose when I wanted to use the free trail. And the “Try Premium today” thing doesn’t have a exit button. The only thing you can do is press the button, or exit the app. Apparently both result in YT Premium now, so either it’s a glitch, or on purpose. Anyway, beside this wall of one complaint, the app is pretty good. I like how you can shuffle the playlist and it recommends you more songs. Well, have a good day.

  • Content winner, though lacking some polish and features Feb 9, 2018

    Hands down, the most music of any service. If it's a song that was recorded by humans it's probably in here. And will at some point come across your station. End of the day that's what matters most to me for a music service. Exposure to content. That said, the app is missing a few minor convenience features present in other similar services. My biggest peeve, no Windows PC music only mode. I listen to music a lot at work and would prefer not to eat bandwidth for videos I'm not watching. While in power the app has no option to keep the screen on meaning I have to unlock my phone to thumb a song down while driving. And the most minor, no way to thumb down a song that's not currently playing, gotta stop playing the current track, start playing the other one, then thumb it down. Also, why no access to comments?

    Not there yet. I'll give the team credit...they are clearly working on it, but it's a long ways from being ready. The Android TV app is a joke. The stations feature is nothing more than a playlist. Want to shuffle a long playlist? Too bad, it only shuffles the first 30 songs or so. Ask Assistant to shuffle an artist? Well, it says sure, but it didn't really mean it...it's the same order every time. There's potential, but how I miss Google Play Music!

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

    Edited: YOU HAVE TO PAY TO LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC WITH THE SCREEN OFF!? Well, looks like I'm going back to Pandora. This app is pointless. Even YouTube minimizes so you can work on something else while you video plays in the background. This is suppose to be the replacement for play music? You can't even go into the setting on the app without it stopping the music. Can't run in background, can't turn off screen, can't listen to anything unless the app is open and up front.

  • Basic features are a failure Oct 1, 2020

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

    The "your mix" part is so bad. It starts with you choosing several bands that you like then plays only the ones that you've "liked". But not all of them... No. Like two of them. Over, and over again. They are really holding out for that 9.99 or whatever a month. It's so bad that I would assume that the paid service isn't any better. Literally EVERY OTHER SERVICE does a better job of providing a mix of music.

    Awful and confusing. Music is hard to find. Took forever for my device library to load, only to advise me that I can't add any of my device music to my YouTube playlists. There are ads, which I never had to deal with in Google Play Music. All around a horrible, inconvenient, and unwanted replacement for an app that was working perfectly well for me. I hate it and would almost rather just buy an iPhone to rid myself of this app. What a waste of time.

    Terrible. This is not progress. There doesn't seem to be any autoplay option so that when you're listening to your music it will play the next song. Instead when listening through bluetooth car stereo you have to keep pressing the 'next' button once your song stops. Also it seems to pause for a minute before playing the song. Not happy at all. Wish it was possible to give zero stars. I downloaded another music player app much happier using that

  1. Can’t find your favorite song? Explore the nearly endless catalog of music videos, playlists, covers, concert footage and live recordings
  2. Keep the music playing even when your phone screen is asleep! Create the perfect mixtape and take it with you wherever you go with YouTube Red
  3. Find songs for every mood with an app that follows your lead! Receive suggested songs that match those you’ve already listened to

  • The revamp changes everything. May 25, 2018

    By Alex Lerman
    This is a great app, has the absolute biggest library(YouTube), option for video and all of this is just the early access version! Very excited to see what the future updates bring with them. Few complaints are: Remove the swipe to delete from playlists, or make it harder to trigger, like requiring a double swipe. This was an issue in GPM, still an issue here. Also add shuffle and repeat buttons on the play screen and the ability to add whole albums to playlists. Other than that, keep up the good work and keep expanding the official library, as it’s missing big albums like Stoney by post Malone and 4 your eyes only by J Cole and so on.

  • Seems Legit Jul 23, 2018

    By i55rex
    Been using YT Music for about a month now and I’m pleased 100% so far! The My Mixtape section is great; I’ve had it play several songs that I love but hadn’t listened to in a while (oh the nostalgia). There are only a few glitches like how the app responds sometimes but not anything irritating to me in the least (some slow response times that last half a second). I know they are still working some bugs and kinks out, but I’ve yet to have the app crash on me since I’ve been using it. It’s my #1 go-to when listening to music on my phone whether I’m at home or driving. Can’t wait to see what new additions we get in the future!

  • In love with this. Wish it wasn’t so $$$ tho. Mar 18, 2020

    By PORN STAR SWEETS
    I absolutely LOVE this! No ads, Thank yoooou! Having everything at your finger tips and also it gives amazing finds and even ones you forgot about & hen will show you whole entire playlist. You want baby making music or old school rock ballads then you’re all set for hours with a playlist made, Or make your own! I have tons of playlists already. Plus you subscribed to the artist. ONLY thing I don’t like is the price. But it’s really not a lot when you think about how much time you save and being able to take with you on your cell with unlimited space!!

  • Much improved; still needs more work. Oct 21, 2019

    By TaoGroves
    This app has improved vastly since its introduction a few years ago, and is now one of the top music streaming platforms in my opinion. First, Google’s algorithms deliver the best mix of what I like along with new suggestions. Secondly, I appreciate the ability to seamlessly switch between music and videos in the app. Lastly, the offline mixtape is an extremely useful feature. Always having 100 fresh songs in my back pocket for those no service areas is a lifesaver. The app is still a bit clunky (especially the library) but I like it a lot.

  • Developers read ⭐️ 🌟 Jul 7, 2020

    By DudefuseTIB
    Good app. I’m trying two switch from Google Play music but I’ve had to use a third-party method to switch over from it. You need to add your own way to transfer, likes songs, and more data about the user. Another problem is that you do not have every song available on there that you did on G p.m. This is making it very difficult for people who have bought song is that they cannot move over to or other reasons. I do like the app because of its learning algorithms for my type of music. another thing you need to think about is Apple Watch app support. Many people of Apple watches and make this service a real service it would need to have an app for me to listen to my music downloaded on the watch. This would be appreciated as well.

  • One thing... Oct 20, 2020

    By Nymjy
    So I really like this app because it almost reads your mind with the songs you want to listen to and I like that it gives you the option to watch the music video that goes with the song. The thing is (and I’ve seen complaints about this in other reviews), when you first get the app it asks it you want a free trial for premium. A lot of apps do this so I wasn’t too surprised but anyway I didn’t want to use mine, or at least not yet. So i just pressed the little “x” so I could go on without the trial but when I opened the app like a minute later it told me that I was currently in the free trial even though I’m 100% sure that I pressed the “x.” So ya, that’s pretty much my only complaint. Otherwise it’s a great app. Thanks for reading!

  • Good but... Oct 18, 2020

    By EdG70
    Been using the plataform for almost a year. It’s good but could have some improvements. Some of the songs are not recorded at the same volume so that creates a fluctuation when listening causing you to constantly adjust the volume. Second there’s no way (or at least I haven’t found it) to arrange the downloaded music into files in order to listen “offline”. Because you can have files, but they won’t play unless you are online. Offline you can arrange the songs in a “play next” but it won’t stay like that when you close the app. I would appreciate if someone tells me how to do this. Because I would like to have a “working out” file or “reading” file to listen offline.

  • Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button? Jun 2, 2018

    By IStoppingPowerI
    (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.

  • It’s ok Sep 18, 2020

    By grizzlemynizzle
    Using this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t male 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.

    Alot of the recommended stations are just some main stream popular artist I never listen too. Let me add my own playlist or artist to my main menue play lists. Let me add or move wdgests around. And for crying out loud all the playlist have the same songs... Like if I click on a dubstep song or something why put something non related to dubstep there? Same with Nightcore or electro music.. let me make my experience with this app better by allowing me to change and move things around. I don't even scroll down because it's all garbage that I'll never click on. It's so sad that this app just get worse and worse. Now you added that song video thing when the old one worked perfectly fine. Now It randomly switches to video even if I selected song. I had a grate experience with this app for like 3 years but it's just getting worse and worse over that time

    Seriously disappointed that Google is merging with this app. No option to shuffle songs. If you pick a song from library it will shuffle songs from that artists only. You can hit the shuffle button at the top, but don't get to chose that first song (which I prefer). You can download songs to play offline but only 1.5 hours worth. Drove 2 hours away and didn't even make it half way before it quit working. Large amounts of bandwidth. Screen share only works 1/20 times and when it does it's wrong.

    Please, if I have a playlist synced in “saved items” it supposed to update (download automatically) all the new tunes which I put on the same name “online” playlist, but it never uptade itself, the only way is deleting the playlist (in saved offline) and download all the way AGAIN to get sometimes just 3 new tunes I must to download like 3 hundreds tunes in order to keeps up-to-date my offline same name synced playlist. I’m thinking to cancel my subscription only because this, it already bugging me a lot. Second thing the music VIDEOS in a playlist synced to play offline some of them just play the music sound, if I created a Music VIDEOS playlist it’s supposed to play ONLY VIDEOS in all of musics which i put on it, not just a few aleatory (p.s: off course I added the video option when I did the prior search).
