    So at first I did the trial because I didnt want to pay for YouTube, but honestly for someone who loves music and discovering all kinds, and loves to watch podcasts and short videos, this app is bomb. I've never had a problem with it. Literally any song I can think of, from obscure video games to foreign movies. I can find it here, download it and listen to whenever. The feature that creates mixes for you is top notch. I have discovered more music through this app than by me searching alone. 💛

    When i first downloaded this app, i was getting ready to get rid of every other music app and subscription i have. Thankfully i didnt though. This is because the first day or two of having this app its completely amazing because of how much music you discover in so little time. Then came day three where this app started repeating things i thumbed up on the “my mixtape” selection. It only got worse from there. It’s almost been a week since ive gotten this app and now EVERY. SINGLE. SONG. is a repeat. This gets extremely frustrating, because i expect the “my mixtape” selection to help you discover new songs of the same type of music you like and have thumbed up. Now every single time i use this app all i do is skip through music and before i know it, i arrive at my destination, or i finish what i’m doing at the moment. The ONLY reason i gave this app 3 starts and not zero, is because this is the only app of its kind and there’s nothing really to compare it to. I am actually thinking of cancelling my membership and using some other music app that causes less frustration and stress in my life. IF YOU INTEND TO DISCOVER NEW MUSIC WITH THIS APP DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP, JUST KEEP SCROLLING DOWN.

    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?

    Overall good. I am coming from being a long term Google Play user. The one thing I miss desperately is the sleep function / auto shut off function. The other night I turned on a cd / album to fall asleep. Usually the music would stop when the album was over. However, I was reawaken a few hours later to music automatically added to the playlist. If we could have a timer function. Also, if we could turn off the continuous music option. I love it all, I just can't be reawaken at night. :)

    I really love this app because I can lock my phone n the music keeps playing. I also love the fact it adapts to me but I do wish it wouldn’t try to slip crap songs in on me that I don’t care for. I’m particular about my music but I love music nonetheless. The price is a little much for my liking because I am on a budget but you take the good with the bad. If I haven’t given it the thumbs up, don’t play it. 9 times outta 10 they miss with the song they suggest. I would give it 5 stars and not complain about the price if it was not for this hiccup in their design. Id really like to only pay 10 bucks a month for this app, but thems the breaks. All in all it’s a good app. Fine tune it, n I’ll praise this app from the rooftops. I already suggest it to all my friends but id go viral if they either A-come down on the price, of B- not try to slip me the BS songs. Other than that, good show ladies n gents. Thank you

    Coming from Play Music, the updated UI is pretty clean which is very welcomed. I have two complaints: 1. I can't find where to access saved radio stations. 2. The major issue is the recommended music is extremely weak...like awful. Wouldn't it be using the same algorithm from Google Play Music? Recommended music was completely on point in that app. This is really concerning, YouTube team. What's the point of having a subscription to unlimited music if there's not a good means to discovering it?

    So frustrating! I gave this app a solid month to get used to it. No Way! It pains me to know that Google Play Music is going away soon. I just want to play the music I choose. Everything takes too much work to do, especially if you want to play whole albums or find a song and want to see more from the same album or band. Theres clutter everywhere, all kinds of "related artists". We had a good thing going for years having a combo of YouTube Red and Play Music. Back to Spotify?

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

    Not happy about having to pay extra just to cast to Google Home. I only play music that I have bought, from my own playlists. I NEVER use the stations or other "pay" features. But now I have to pay to play. I signed up for the trial, but when I tried again to cast to Google Home the YouTube Music app wanted an additional $2 per month just to cast. To use my own network to stream my own music to my own devices, they want to charge me extra. Robber Barons! I really hope that was a bug. I miss GPM!

    I'm okay with the UI and the look and video features in this app, but I'm really surprised and not happy that after sorting the songs in your library in alphabetical order, they won't play in alphabetical order. They'll play in the order the songs were added to library. And where ever the song u chose falls into that order, the next song in the queue, when the queue is NOT shuffled, will be whatever song was added after that. If I wanted to listen to my music out of order, I would shuffle it.

  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!

  • 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.

    Making the switch to this since Google is killing Play Music. Disappointed that there seems to be no way to loop a track or no obvious way to find the button. Such a fundamental feature of a music player. EDIT: And, just like that, the buttons appear like magic! Hopefully, YouTube Music gets all the features Play Music had. That was a really solid app. This could be that good.

    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.

    I like the UI and I enjoy that it has most of the same features of Google play music (which I used before). The only thing, which I kind of despise, is the shuffle. It seems to only like to shuffle songs with other songs around it if its a very large Playlist. I would love to be able to use the shuffle to listen to all of my music not just the songs that happen to sit around the one I wanted to start on. Other than the shuffle I would not change too much about this app.

  • 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.

    I like the interface, it's much cleaner than Google Music. Please keep it that way, don't keep changing things and cluttering it up, e.g. YouTube. Also, a big series of bugs that need to be worked out, the app doesn't work well in split screen. Selecting things in menus fail and the back button is unavailable until the app is expanded to full screen. Really annoying if you drive with a map and music app open.

    Disappointing so far. I have my playlists downloaded and the songs constantly just stop. It will stop shuffle and randomly decide to go in order. If you click on a song you want to listen to while in "shuffle" , it takes you out of shuffle. Considering i had no choice but to move over to YT music it would have been nice if it was at least up to the same standard as Google music.

    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

    Really a long way to go to make it any good. Can't simple things like loading a playlist and shuffling it. Just an unintuitive poorly designed and implemented mess. It is several years behind Play Music in features and functionality. Also, video and music are two entirely different things. Now I have to figure out how to unlike every YouTube video I ever have liked so it doesn't pollute my music. Who ever thought this was a good idea should be fired and never allowed around software again.

  • SO AGGRAVATING!! Aug 28, 2019

    By SometimesFish
    I downloaded the app and it very graciously gave me 2 weeks premium for free. I could download music and listen to it offline and it was add free. I was building up my playlist and towards the end of the 2 weeks I had about 50 songs downloaded and in my playlist. The end of the two weeks finally came and premium was gone. Here comes the problem. All my downloads were gone, you can only access them if u have premium. I was alright with that because I still had my playlist and could always use data. I go into my playlist and shuffle, the first song had an add. It was expected, but as I continued on I found that there is an add at the beginning AND end of EVERY song. There is an option to skip after 5 seconds but I don’t want to be pulling my phone out every few minutes to skip an add. THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN ENJOY THIS WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY PREMIUM. Thank you for reading my rant on why you shouldn’t download this app. Have a great day!

  • Great Concept - Terrible Execution Oct 8, 2019

    By Minorly Disgruntled
    I honestly had high hopes for this app, but in the end it was just a major let down. The music selection is great, but everything else about the app is there to make sure you can never actually listen to the music. Most songs will stop after 10-30 seconds and restarting the app won’t fix this problem. It will happen often, randomly, and unpredictably. Also, one you pause a song and leave the app it loses it’s memory. So let’s say your on a road trip and stopped to get gas, when you get back in the car you essentially have to restart the entire playlist you were just on. Individually these problems aren’t terrible, but combined it is the absolute worst. Which is really upsetting considering the content on here is actually amazing. Overall, only use this app if you’re at home and don’t mind consistently trouble shooting. Not an app for on the go people with busy lives.
