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
Good ideas but below average in a couple areasUpdate: Tempted to drop to 2 stars because the “radio station” function has gotten worse. This was my favorite function because I liked discovering new bands and songs based on a band or song I liked, but now it plays the same songs by the same bands over and over and over each time I start the radio station. On the rare occasion it tosses in something new and I “like” it, then that band gets endlessly added to the mix with the same couple of songs. It totally defeats the purpose of the radio function!!!! The only reason I’m staying with 3 stars is that the app stopped crashing on me constantly as I’d noted in my original review (below).
Original: I never had problems with Google Play Music, but this app crashes a lot and has below average shuffle capabilities (i.e., won’t play all songs in a band’s catalog before turning off and puts the same set of songs in the beginning of every shuffled play session instead of truly shuffling the whole list each time.) I do love the concept of the auto-generated “My Mix” playlists, though. Instead of just creating a playlist of your likes or of songs that match ANY of your likes, the app creates “Mixes” that are based on genres/logical groupings of your likes. These are usually pretty good..Version: 5.46.2
AlmostWhen I first got the App years ago it was great. The app is still working wonderfully when it comes to finding songs, getting recommendations, and adding music to a playlist. And I really like the inclusion of accessing community playlists. What irks me is that I’m having issues editing my playlist off the app. I’ll spend time, kill a GOOD bit of time, editing a playlist and it won’t save! I’ll hit the editing pencil icon, move songs around, hit done, then I refresh the playlist to find that it’s still the same. It’s really really frustrating! And I can’t get continuous play off my downloaded playlists often. It will stop play early in the playlist, or glitch out altogether and stop at one song. When it stops at one song it will usually say, “unable to find playlist.” Really tired of this as well. These really shouldn’t be issues. It’s kind of the core of the App to have these functions. It’s like having a movie service subscription, but you only get to watch on odd numbered days. What’s the point?! Really shouldn’t have to point out that the focus on the developers should be to make sure the core services that the App provides are working as they should. Let’s make sure the App does what it’s advertised to do before we get ambitious..Version: 4.64
Some points of improvement1. I don’t know if this is just a bug but sometimes when I’ve shuffled or started a downloaded playlist, the auto play would get stuck on one song and then I would have to open the app and push play or skip. It’s annoying when I’m doing something with my hands and I expect the auto play to just work on its own.
2. The lyrics for songs needs to be updated or expanded on. Arabic songs have Arabic lyrics but Arabic is written right to left so the lyrics should be written that way too. Many songs that are written in Urdu have their lyrics in Hindi script. I think for these songs there should be an option to see the lyrics in Urdu script or Hindi script.
3. Downloaded offline playlists should not have songs that have already been downloaded separately. Even if I’ve been listening to one song many times, if I’ve already downloaded it’s album then that song should not be in the offline playlist. If I'm traveling and I want to listen to all of my downloaded songs there should not be repeats of songs it’s very annoying.
Besides these points Im pretty satisfied with the app..Version: 5.45
The Power of MusicMusic has always been important to me. When I was very young my parents introduced me to Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline along with many other great musicians. They planted that seed before I could talk. Later I discovered Three Dog Night and “Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog,” Neil Diamond and “Crackling Rosie”, (which my mother broke my record because she thought Neil was saying, “ Crabby Old Lady!) Then came “Sugar on Sunday” and “I Think We’re Alone Now”, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult and of course you know the rest! Music has been my best friend throughout my life. It moves me, it motivates me, it makes me cry, “Eleanor Rigby”… I didn’t mean to write a book here, I have made music important to my children (5), and my grandchildren, (11), I am 65 and I plan on teaching my great grandchildren the joy of music. Thank you for all the wonderful music you have given me the privilege to explore and enjoy!.Version: 5.12
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
Quality of life here is utter garbageIt’s a functional app. That’s the best I can say. Music is stored on here and you can listen to it. The library is about the standard with the bonus of being able to save videos for the tracks you can’t find.
But the good stuff ends there. Opening the app brings you to a home with your playlists. Psyche. It takes you a page featuring “listen again” and auto-generated playlists. You have to click to go to your library, then select playlists or albums from there. It’s not the end of the world but it gets tedious. Speaking of albums, it only registers you as having the album if you save the ENTIRE album. If you just have one song it won’t show up.
The biggest offender is how playlists work. In them you can search for tracks to add or take auto-generated suggestions. However you CANNOT simply go through your library and check every song you want to add. You have to add every single song manually. And it’s more tedious than you can imagine..Version: 5.23
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
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
Randomize Button??I love the app. But they removed the randomize button. Now you have to jump though hoops to randomize your muisc. You have to push the three dots to the side of the playlist then press radom, or press play THEN press the random button there. Randomizing your music the second way garentees that the first will ALWASE be the same. 👎I mean, come on Google. Even Apple Music has the randomizer button. I get thet it streamlines the look but when im on the road i dont want to have to get my pasenger to randomize my muisc. I have 200+ songs in my liked playlist and dont want to listen to them in the order that i liked them. Theres also music i liked ages ago that i would like to listen to eventually. Put the randomizer button back man.
4⭐️ Because its were my music is.
4👎 For the design change. Seriously. If there was a way to downgrade the app so i can get the randomizer button back i would do it in a heartbeat..Version: 5.47
Love itFirst music service I’ve paid for and I love it. Even the free version with ads is still more complacent than all the other music platforms, not to mention how it includes free access to any music, the ability to play in whatever order, play next, and many more, all you can even do without paying. That’s honestly why I tried it in the first place because it was already so good free but then the premium makes it ten times better. Love the personal mixes, love the radios, and absolutely love the offline mistake.
However, my one and only peeve is that sometimes my offline mixtape gets stuck downloading a track and then doesn’t finish at all, currently whenever that happens I just uninstall/reinstall. But other than that I’m happy to pay for this music service, something I really never saw myself doing..Version: 5.06
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
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
You Tube music & Music videosI use this nearly everyday. I was a teenager in 1970, the greatest era music will ever know, I can find all of that energizing music here, on this app. It is rare when there is a signal problem, it does happen but If I put a number on it and the reason Is usually loss of Wi-Fi and I’m usually in the same location when it happens to me. Occasionally maybe twice a week it may stop and it just takes a touch of my phone to restart it all in all its a non issue, if you receive a call it will stop and as soon as the call is over it picks back up where it stopped. I personally love it can’t stump it(I can find about any song I’ve ever looked for. Concert footage fantastic takes me back to my happy place. I could go on but I need to hear some great rock and roll now!.Version: 4.70
No new songs, not worth the money for membershipNo good song recommendations, all it does is play your like songs over and over, and then finally when you get a new song it usually not a good one some weird type of stuff that just isn’t worth the membership, and to top it off you shouldn’t need to pay to have music in the back ground I should be able to have my phone off without a membership, honestly if they did that it would probably bring in a lot more people so that’s an idea and if no one likes it to bad this is an honest review and this is only my opinion not anyone else’s but it’s not a good music app, unless you have money, and even then it’s challenging to find new and good songs, which is just a pure disappointment., edit: changed from 3 star to 1 star app is to frustrating, this is just ridiculous if I could would give a .5 star if possible.Version: 3.69
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
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
You Tube MusicHands down blows away any other music application and they just get better and better I love that they can make you up your own compilation from what data they gather from your musical history also love the offline storage so just in case you can’t get a signal or can’t afford to pay your bill there is a song collection that they have downloaded for you again based on your history and your playlists and the best part is that it’s free unfortunately some things you have to get the subscription to enjoy like no ads and endless music even when you hop on another app they still let the music keep playing. AMAZING I’ve been using this app since it popped out and don’t plan on giving up my spot for anyone else I love this app!!.Version: 5.33
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
Get rid of the explicit warningsI know there are songs that I listen to that talk about depression and self destructive behaviors. Im old enough to listen to that. There is a setting that turns on the “filter explicit content” filter, so why do I have to be reminded that the song is “explicit and may contain topics about self harm and suicide and blah blah blah”. Stop interrupting my listening experience. When the warning pops up, it completely stops playing music until you skip the song, or close the warning. And this is a big issue when I’m driving, because i don’t know if I have bad internet, or it’s stuck on one of those songs, which pulls my attention off the road, and puts me in a bad mood. Im glad that the warnings only really pop up on the more popular songs, because if it didn’t, 50% of my playlist will constantly be halted by some dumb warning..Version: 6.07
Good app/ bad organizationWhen you add a song to the library they should automatically be able to be sorted by album, genre , artist. Why is it that when you go to the album tab is only the albums you downloaded in entirety instead of all your songs just sorted by albums, it just doesn’t make sense ! Also , where is the alphabetized scroll wheel !? I shouldn’t have to scroll through 1k songs to find one I’m looking for . Then on top of it when I’m looking for some artist/ songs they don’t even appear as if their in my library. They literally had it like that for google play so I don’t understand why they would just take it out . I have had this app for like two years and they still have yet to fix this smh
Update …. Still haven’t updated it … such a simple and convenient thing yet still hasn’t been updated.Version: 6.04
I have a suggestionAs much as I love using this app, I have an annoyance that's isn't necessarily the fault of the app. Most music tends to fluctuate in volume intensity. I don't enjoy listening to my classical music only to throw my headphones off because one of them happens to start loudly nearly bursting my eardrums. I believe that some form of internal compressor mode can be used to help alleviate this problem. My suggestion is that this compressor program would have a setting where you choose the maximum level of volume intensity you can handle relative to the volume of the phone/device. This may reduce the quality of the audio, but if it doesn't force me to get tinnitus, then it's all good for me. I don't know if this is an impossibility, but I hope this might be something worth looking into..Version: 5.46.2
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
Love it but could use workI have been using this app for year's and it's an amazing app. I love the fact that I can listen to my downloaded music when I don't have service. But there are a few things that need work. First off I hate that when I answer a call it kicks me off of my music. Like it used to just pause it and I could resume my music after the call but now I have to go back to the app and restart my mix and it's super annoying when that happens while I'm driving. Another thing is that have to keep re-downloading the same playlist over and over again. I already downloaded the songs so why do I have to keep downloading the same content... Other than that I love this app..Version: 4.50
Aight music appI use this app to listen to all my music. However there are some songs that aren’t available on this platform but are available elsewhere. But one of the things that bothers me is the fact that there isn’t no features to listen to music on a playlist from oldest added to newest added. Because I don’t want to have to scroll all the way to the bottom of my playlist to listen to old songs I added. Also some other features that would be nice to have is the ability to filter through songs in your playlist so kind of like a search bar or options to help sort by music. Also another thing that would be nice is the option or ability that you can turn on or off to find new music not based on music you listen to already so you can find and explore new music from people you probably haven’t heard of..Version: 4.71
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
Great App, But Has A Big FlawFirst off, I want to start by saying that this app is amazing when it comes to music, especially if that music isn’t exactly easy to find elsewhere. However, I’ve experienced an issue where even though I have some songs saved to a playlist & downloaded, they won’t show up or play while I’m offline. Normally, I’d have access to Wi-Fi, so it wouldn’t be a big deal, however, when the Wi-Fi isn’t working properly (which happens to me often, if not every day), it gets highly frustrating when I try to play my playlist that I know has 13 songs, & the only song that shows up & plays is the first one. I’ve had to dock 2 stars, as this has been a daily issue lately, but as soon as the issue is fixed, this app will skyrocket to 5 stars, & if I could give it 6 stars once the issue is resolved, I would..Version: 5.42
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
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
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
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
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
