YouTube Music Positive Reviews
Best App EVER!!When you tube music firs started I have to admit I hated the app starting a station would only give you eight songs and then it would go on repeat, I got fed up and reached out to google customer support and definitely one of the best customer service ever, the representative that help me out tried everything to figure out why it wouldn’t auto play continuously, finally we gave up and the problem continued, finally google reached out to me again and asked me how my experience with the app was and I was on the verge of canceling my service but the amazing people at google took my threat seriously and fixed the issue right away, now every time I start a station new songs keep popping up, I am definitely a happy customer and will be referring others to google instead of all the other platforms, Thanks Google for fixing the issue I’ am one happy customer who will continue using your services if I had 4 thumbs they’d be way up 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽.Version: 4.59
You can listen to music with thisYes it is true, you can use this app to listen to music, shocking. However if you move your phone while in the app, cause you have to be in app to hear the music unless you pay, the music tends to minimize and you can accidentally tap on and start playing a different song. Also the quick picks feature is neat, though it will recommend some music that I haven’t listened to in 5 months and at that I barely listened to at all, I was listening the the cure, tilted my phone and accidentally started playing lemon demon, and there isn’t a way that I know of to hop back into what you were listening to, idk make the back button for songs at the start of a queue be able to take you back to your last queue, problem solved. Also allow the option to turn off tilt controls, I cannot think of a place or time when I would be glad that they are there, cause I could just drag my finger down the screen. Plus some artists either have their discography hidden (Bob Dylan for example) or just not there (see Jimi Hendrix), why is that.Version: 4.40
Good Google Play music transfer, other things to improveI’m super happy they finally allowed the transfer of our Google Play music playlists, but using this as my main music app is going to need a few improvements if I’m being honest. First, the app can be glitchy when loading info the current song playing, and sometimes I have to close the app fully to get it to work. Secondly, if you are going to have a feature of having lyrics built into the app, please update it to where you know any song made within the last 30-40 years at the minimum will load no matter the genre or artist, no matter how popular or not the song is (in it’s current state it feels like a beta rather than a fully released music app.) I enjoy it overall but am looking forward to improvements moving forward..Version: 3.73
Neat app, but a few improvements could be useful.I give this four stars because it’s an amazing app, and I’ve been using it on my Lenovo / Google Home smart clock to fall asleep. As well as I like it, there are a few things that I would like to be added. For one, when I ask it to play a certain person or music company that I like, for example Waterflame, or Danimal Cannon, I want it to just play those songs. I’m tired of skipping songs to the point where I can’t even skip anything without a membership. Second of all, stop flooding your ads with membership advertisements! It’s annoying to me because imagine hearing after every single song: “Buy our membership!” And I would also like the option to not play certain songs, because after a while it plays lo-fi music or old school hip-hop, but I don’t want that to happen. Again, this is a great app, but these things are something that could be considered in the future. I look forward to using this more..Version: 4.21
Missing Google play musicIn all honesty I switched over to this app with a really open mind because I figured it would work about the same as Google play music. But I've been disappointed in certain functions. I mostly listen to my music while I'm driving so the download-only feature is really important. On Google, you could toggle your downloads on and off and then sort by artist if you wanted. I've noticed on this app that if you want to listen to downloads you can either choose one individual album or you can shuffle all of your songs. This is frustrating to me.
The other thing I'm not thrilled about is the really bad lag when I skip a song or two. And this is still if I'm only listening to my downloaded music so there is no reason for the app to act like it's buffering or whatever the problem is here??
I really wanted to like this app. I did. But it's got some pretty major issues and they had a long time to sort this out before making everyone switch over..Version: 3.85
This app is below averageUsing this app since it’s replacing google play. I don’t like that it takes forever to connect to my Bluetooth it seems to always have a lag and the music buffers in the beginning too. I never experienced this with google play. Maybe the music videos are still loading in the background even though it’s on “music only” mode. I also really dislike that my music never picks up where it left off when I’m done. I have to manually go and search for my song every time I restart my car or anytime I come back to the app really. I’ve tried not closing the app on my home screen but it didn’t make a difference. Sometimes my playlists can get long and searching for a song toward the middle is annoying. I do like that I can find any song that’s on YT on here though, sometimes google play would not offer songs YT music has offered. This app is constantly crashing for me after a year of using it now and I am not impressed by any of their updates so far.Version: 4.43
One “tiny” complaintOk, 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..Version: 3.85
Feature suggestions!PLEASE ad an option to listen to a playlist without it influencing recommendations!
I listen to a lot of classical when I go to sleep and it ends up seeping into all of the recommended rock and rap playlists which dosnt match at all.
PLEASE MAKE IT SO WE CAN SEARCH THROUGH OUR DOWNLOADS BY TITLE!!!
it’s so frustrating having all of my music downloaded but not being able to find specific songs in my larger playlists because I don’t remember it’s place in my playlist. To make this clear, if I don’t have any service and go into my downloads I would like to be able to search for music in the downloads instead of hunting through every playlist. Thank You. Other than that the app is awesome I have the 20$ family plan and use it for hours each day, 100% the best music app IMO. 5 stars..Version: 4.54
Good app. One Dealbreaker FlawThis app is pretty cool. It has a ton of music, videos, playlist, etc. I was even impressed at the fact that if you play an album such as Pink Floyd for example there is no to second pause between the songs. Everything flows from one to the next as it should.
What drives me absolutely crazy about this app however is that on any artist, playlist, or song that you start with clicking shuffle is not really shuffling in random order.I put on a huge playlist for workouts and click shuffle, however I quickly realized that it shuffles in the same preset orderEvery time. If I click shuffle 20 times today and two days from now click shuffle 20 times again on the same playlist it will be the same exact first song, second song, third song etc.
My understanding is that this has been a complaint for years and has not been fixed. It’s enough for me to quit premium service..Version: 4.42
Great app but needs improvementI love this app. I have a premium membership I’ve been paying for one for a long time. I love the platform so I don’t mind paying a couple extra bucks a month to use the premium benefits of this app. There are a few issues though. If I run out of premium you guys absolutely flood me with ads way more then you need to which aggravates me a little bit and also ever since this new update the app has been crashing left and right and I’ll be listening to a playlist and you won’t be able to view half the songs in the playlist. Before the update the app was fine but after it kinda got messed up. All this app needs is a few bugs repaired and then it will be fine otherwise I love this app. Also it would be smart for you guys to keep political ads off of your website too because I know that people don’t want to see that regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum..Version: 4.39
HeyI’m giving this 1 less star than when I first started to use this app. Somewhere between the last update and now, the “recently played” arrow button next to those words was gone. You guys had put it in the main account bar menu and honestly that was sucha huge mistake. Now I had to go and find and click my way to my recently played history. From songs like a week ago or so. Yeah had a big issue with that, I had to tinker around the controls to find my recently played songs list. You guys fixed it now which I am very happy. That is a feature that serves a great purpose for someone like me. Sure there must be others that have the same feeling towards it. Thanks for putting it back and listening to your clients. But I’m giving it a 3 star rating. Maybe next time it updates or asks for a review I’ll leave a better one, if they keep that feature and or elaborate more on it. Thank you :).Version: 4.60
App is good, but far from perfectAt times when you start the app or an individual song in a playlist, it will either A) load an incomplete version of your playlist or B) load the audio from one song and display the cover art and name of another. If a playlist long enough and you choose a song far back enough in said playlist, the app just won’t bother to load the entire playlist into your queue. You can get around this by initially selecting a song further into the playlist and then going back in you queue. Sometimes you’ll see the name and cover art of the song you intended to listen to, but hear the actual audio from a completely different song. Once again, this can be fixed by going to a different part of the queue and going back to the song you originally meant to listen to..Version: 4.35
Forget previous review...I love this appUpdate: I figured I’d leave the prior review there to show how stupid I am... just don’t touch the screen so hard and those songs will move all over the place with incredible ease. I figured it out by accident.... moron moment over... love this app now more than ever... love love love
Look, I love this service because it has literally every song/cover/live version etc. of everything.... however, I spend all day making these playlists that I cannot rearrange!!!!!
I click edit, the equal sign (I don’t know what else to call it) appears on the left and I have to touch that thing like 87 times before I can get it just right so the stupid menu doesn’t come up instead. I HATE IT. It is literally so frustrating it makes me not even want to use the app.
I’ve had to resort to deleting things that I want to be at the end of the playlist and then adding them again just to get them to where I want.
Please please please fix this or make it easier or bigger or something. It’s literally a crapshoot on whether I can touch it just right so I can pull it up or down in the playlist.
I can’t be the only one this annoys. That would shock me to the core.....Version: 3.53
This app is great butIt could be better the “my mixtape” is just music that i went out of my way to find it music i have in my likes or downloads rarely is there new music in there that i haven't heard, along with that if my mixtape is supposed to be songs that i like and etc then don’t play different music at different times, in the morning it plays different music than in the afternoon and night which is okay but i like to hear everything and my morning music is the same as my night time and my afternoon music. Along with the play more music for me, if the new discover playlist or whatever it’s called is supposed to help me find new music it would be nice to make it more accurate I've never liked a song that played in that playlist and it’s not even the type of music i listen to and i’ll listen to anything. also it needs to be updated all the time not every Wednesday..Version: 3.63
Content winner, though lacking some polish and featuresHands 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?.Version: 2.19
Excellent App, one small issue …..This is a great app, has finally tuned into what I really like , love ALL the musical options. But. When I go to add a song to my playlists. I can only add a song to ONE playlist when I’d like to add it to more than one . So I have to keep clicking “add to playlist “ to get this accomplished . Unlike the regular You Tube app, when you go to save a song it gives you checkboxes for ALL your playlists and save for later lists as well .
Hook this up GOOGLE! Give us check boxes , and the options for all our playlist simultaneously until we are “DONE” with the addition to our playlist tasks ! Thanks though, really enjoy soo many options that you tube has . Keep up the good work ! Cheers.Version: 4.53
Getting BetterThis app is pretty good as of Oct 2021. Many of the old bugs that plagued the experience in the past are now resolved and generally the app is reliable. It still has random bugs and strange UI controls that aren't necessarily show-stoppers which is why it's not quite 5 stars.
For example, it always displays the album art and track details in Apple CarPlay from the first track of a playlist when you start playback with the shuffle all option even though some other track is playing. This fixes itself once it advances to the next track.
I'm also not a huge fan of swiping down to completely stop playback and find it not very intuitive. It took a while to figure out how to dismiss the playback controls after the "X" icon was removed in a recent update..Version: 4.48
Love it.. exceptLove everything about this app... except I’ve not been able to create a “new play list”, since I’ve had this account. Ever time I try, it says, “there was a problem with the server “. I’ve updated regularly, and have asked You Tube for a resolution more than once. NO ONE EVERY REPLIES !! I’d also like to be able to go back to the exact “app generated” playlist that I’ve been listening to for the past few days, after trying a different lineup. If I search for something new or tap on another song outside of the present list that I’ve been listening to. I can never return to the exact same lineup. Even if I go to “history”. The app always generates a different lineup of songs that’s compromised of some of the songs I’ve been listening to, but not the exact list..Version: 4.07
Why Did You Remove The Feature That Allowed Us To Find Remixes From The “More” Button?(Updated On Exp) Starting to love this new look actually. I can see the songs I enjoy replaying come up well at the top section. What was great before was tapping a track that I’ll enjoy, and wondering - what would some remixes/covered/related tracks sound like. The older “more” button or what the current “i”/“Information” button had previously done this. It was awesome! I was hooked. I could find so many great songs from other artists/DJs and so on by finding a great hit, then tapping those buttons. Now those features aren’t to be found.
I don’t feel confident paying because I can get the same great hits/music from streaming services that I’ve never tried before. I was a student for all the time I’ve used it (1.5 years) as well - so I really do love the app! It’s harsh pressing the info button and seeing nothing..Version: 2.33
MehI love the amount of music available! I came from google play music so this was great! My quips though and I hope these are changes that come along: my library doesn’t give me the ability to choose a letter and then get taken to that area, I literally have to scroll to let’s say the H’s... which wouldn’t be bad if I didn’t have over 3000 songs in my library. You can’t change the song when your phone is locked, you have to go into the app to do that and pause it. Also when you go to an artist’s page and click a song by them, it doesn’t just play their next top song it goes to a different artist that is similar and starts playing a song by them. And every time I remove a song from my que, the app forces you back to the top of the list and then you have to scroll back down to where you were..Version: 3.79
Could be betterThis is a good app yes but I would love if I could just listen to music in the background of playing games or reading, I don’t mind ads but if people should download this app it’s probably because they want to listen to any of there favorite songs on here while doing something they shouldn’t have to get a preview or buy a membership just to listen to music in the background they should automatically have it as soon as they get it. I understand if you use the money to help the app but maybe change the listen to music in the background to no unlimited skips but like I said in the beginning it’s a good app it really is I like that I could listen to songs I can’t play on other apps but yeah great app just that’s what I feel like should change. :).Version: 4.31
Fantastic music app and the only one I useI love this app and have been using it for a long time but I do have one request, it probably isn’t a big deal for most but I preferred this app over the others because of the way the album covers were presented on a more full screen display. But with recent updates the album cover art has been significantly reduced in size where it’s not very much to look at. I would much prefer there be an option for the original layout where the album art is front and center like before. I feel like the cover art is an extension of the artist and their work and should be properly showcased to those who want to get a closer look at it..Version: 4.54
Start from radioI really appreciate the app a lot, i just wish the “start from radio” would play songs more related to the theme and the sound of the song you started it with, or maybe that could be a separate feature, overall the song recommendation are good at showing me new things. Don’t get rid of how the radio functions its still nice and convenient, but maybe a new feature that allows you to start the radio based around the same theme and mood as the started song and not just same genre. I don’t know how making apps work. So if it’s more complicated to change or add in it’s totally fine, I appreciate the work that has gone into the app..Version: 4.44.2
I’m disappointedI’m very disappointed because this was going to be my favorite music app. I was going to delete all of my other ones but something happened (I guess it upgraded on its own or something) and deleted all of my downloads and said that if I want to download in music I have to have a premium subscription. I will go to listen to my music and then I want to listen to it while my phones not completely onward just like a black screen or ask out of that app and go to a different app I’m still listening music but it won’t let me anymore. It was great up until the part where I can no longer listen to anything unless I’m on the app. This app is great if you want to listen to it for a couple of weeks and then have to pay for it but other than that I would not recommend!.Version: 4.22
Has bugs on some devices, UI not as friendly as expected.The offline mixtape is buried past screens and screens. It could be right next to "supermix," that would be much better. Also, refreshing the songs every 24 hrs seems very silly. It's an offline playlist! I want to be able to curate the songs on it and they stay put until I decide to change it. When using the offline mixtape, it works great on my phone, an iPhone SE(1st gen). But when I play offline mixtape on my iPad mini 4, each and every track stops 10 seconds before the song is over. When I hit "play," it starts that same song over. I have to manually play each song. I will be looking for a new music service. I have had yt music for a few years now and it has never done this until the 3rd update ago..Version: 4.48
Worst streaming app by farThere are literally so many things wrong with this app. First of all, when casting to a device the queue gets absolutely destroyed, and usually doesn’t even play the songs I lined up. If I want to listen to my playlists, I have to go through like 5 different screens just to do so. The recently played is hardly ever accurate as well. The “update playlist” option ruins the whole playlist if it was in a purposeful order, it just resets it. My biggest issue with it is that it hardly ever plays the songs I line up. Don’t give a “play next” or “add to queue” option if it’s NOT GOING TO WORK. Just some things to think about. Google Play was incredibly better..Version: 4.16
Okay but missing some key features.I really like the app but there are two things that I truly miss from the Google Play App.
Number one being the option of scrolling through the alphabet on the right side in order to find a song in my library faster. I used this scrolling feature so much it was easy to scroll through songs. Also, whenever I do scroll through my library, it would lag and take a while to load my library. It’s understandable since I have a big library, but Google Play didn’t give me that issue.
Another thing I really miss is the sleep option. I would love to listen to music to fall asleep to, but I don’t have the option to have the app automatically stop like Google Play did.
Fixing these issues would make me give the app a 5 star..Version: 4.17
One thing...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!.Version: 3.88
FantasticThis app is the best music app that I have found. With premium it is even better than Apple Music but it is almost free.Version: 2.67
YouTube musicIt work really good I am a proud member 👍🏻.Version: 3.79
Like it!I have YouTube Premium so I get the better side of things, but with YouTube Premium, the app is so much better and comfortable to use. I can download songs and listen to the offline and turn the screen off and still listen, just like Apple Music. Like the app so far!.Version: 2.69
LoveMuch love but it randomly stops playing music please fix other than that I love it.Version: 2.69
Suggestions to make the app betterI love the Mixtape personalized for me, it gets the songs that are related to the song I usually listen to. And when I search a song to play it, the next songs are the ones that I like too. The algorithm for finding the music you will love is excellent.
1) However, they have to work on fixing the downloads
2) Sorting by artist name/ song title/ album/ genre.
3) Make lyrics available
4) You should also allow us to search for the artisr/ song / lyrics in the album/playlist too since we put a lot of songs in it and sometimes forget what the title is or the artist name.
5) Top 50 songs of each country
6) Able to select songs so we can delete or add/remove to playlist, etc.Version: 3.27.5
