Why not available this app in Georgia?
Redesign = step backward.
DanMedStudent on 6/22/2018
Liked it much better before the redesign.
A common annoyance
Zigster 1411 on 6/22/2018
Right after selecting a song the app will just freeze for a bit, even on the offline mixtape Aside from that and some music selection stuff YouTube music is the ultimate music app experience
pauldavis2551 on 6/22/2018
as usual, google and YouTube do a very good job at making sure things work. like YouTube TV it works perfectly every time. I’m going to self impose a closed Google eco system. I’m very pleased
ellis express on 6/22/2018
Siempre lo mismo hay que pagar para conseguir apagar la pantalla
Ads are too long
coolkid174728 on 6/22/2018
I love the app but there are around after 2 ads every song. Which is ok I guess but sometimes the ads are 80mins long or 30mins and I keep having to go to my phone and click “skip ad” it’s really annoying and I don’t want to buy YouTube red just because I’m annoyed with the ads. I want to do my work and not have to worry about skipping the ad every 5 mins because it’s an hour long.
Currently frustrated by updates to the algorithm
BexFx on 6/22/2018
I have been using this app for a while but the most recent update seems to have changed the algorithm for which music is selected. Instead of a genre playlist giving me songs I have recently discovered and liked towards the beginning of a playlist, it is defaulting far more often than not to older selections mixed with music by the artists I have recently discovered, but not the tracks I prefer. If I refresh the selection it seems to just remix what is already there several times before adding anything new. This is extremely frustrating.
Wow, thanks
Percyy⭐️ on 6/22/2018
I was having a blast with my music on the road and i loved listening to my music but turns out i guess i have to use youtube instead, wow, thanks youtube, totally not a jerky move you made, I’m already paying for youtube red, how much of my money do you guys even want?
Doesn’t compete well with Spotify or Deezer
Nancygirl123 on 6/22/2018
It has a good interface and allows me to listen to music but it doesn’t give you the option of listening to your music with your phone screen off. With apps like Spotify allowing you to do this for free and because Spotify Premium is 3$ cheaper than YouTube Music Premium, Spotify is the better choice. I didn’t like the way that it’s playlists weren’t aesthetically pleasing either. They look dull compared to other music apps I have used. If Google want this app to be a competitor to other Music Streaming Services, they must be as liberate as the other apps.
Update killed it
47272288358 on 6/22/2018
The new update only shows songs from the people who I suggested when I first made an account (and it asks you who you like and you select them) and songs from my history, the older version actually took people I listened to and showed me new songs like that, please bring back the old update
Great app
Mugrosodc on 6/22/2018
So far since early access has been a great app to use. One minor thing I wish it had was the ability to add more favorite artist. When the app is first open, you get an option to like ur favorite artist. After that you cannot add any new favorite artist, you can still like and dislike songs but my favorite playlist only plays songs from those favorite artist I selected. This is helpful when discovering new artist so they can be added to my new favorite. Besides that is a great app
Redesign took away all personalization
Shapewalker on 6/22/2018
I used to have playlist based on songs I play. Now I get generic categories. So I end up closing the app because the music is not catered to my taste like it was before. Very frustrated to loose a good music app.
Id rather be able to use my phone
xxvcp on 6/21/2018
YT thinks they can get me by simply having more music but im not going to pay such a high price just so that i can text back without music stopping . Cant even enjoy the free version because id rather not risk screen burning my phone screen. Ill stick to spotify & the ads. Atleast i can use the rest of my phone/ lock my screen for free.
Needs car play support
bigguysi on 6/21/2018
Needs CarPlay support like Google Music. Is use over apple Music if it had this.
I Love The New Changes; Hope that You Can Add More Flexibility With Sorting Playlists
RonP1979 on 6/21/2018
I really do enjoy YouTube music. It is so awesome to be able to create playlists with my favorite album tracks as well as music videos and live concerts. I often feel like I am in music heaven with this new app! I do have one concern, however: Is there any way that you all can allow us to select more than one track to move songs from one playlist to another? It is very difficult to sort new music without this function because I often have to manually add one song and that can take forever. Google play music allows you to select multiple songs and move them from one playlist to another. Apple music also does the same thing. Even though I enjoy YouTube music, this is a dealbreaker because it is so hard to sort my playlist without this function. It's the only thing that can cause me and probably even others to leave this system. I hope that you add this feature Youtube music soon. Otherwise, this is a wonderful app!
They broke the best music video player!
Jesrael on 6/21/2018
I was a huge fan of YouTube music till this release. It used to use either my YouTube history or google play music, not sure which, to offer recommendation and it was often spot on. Now it makes me choose through a poorly curated list of pop artists, which I didn’t care for any of, to create recommendations. Now every time I start it all I see is stuff I would never listen too. Totally broke a great app. Might be time to switch to Apple Music or Spotify.
Absolutely hate the new design
TheEliteDon on 6/21/2018
Shows less recommend music and the playlist ends faster than before.
App is great
Nealandrsn on 6/21/2018
Other than the intense battery drain this app causes, its a great app!
New offline playlist blows
GAdawg88 on 6/21/2018
Maybe it’s my phone(iPhone 6 164mb; all up to date), maybe it’s the new update, but the offline playlist is awful. It’s slow. When you remove a song the whole list refreshes and crashes the entire app. Why can’t I search within my downloaded songs? I have over 500 of them. I want to be able to search and find the one song I’m looking for. Lately, when I add a song, another downloaded song becomes “unavailable offline”, forcing me to re-download it.
How about lyrics?
Hebo hebo l on 6/21/2018
Add lyric option
Don’t like redesign
smokehouse87 on 6/21/2018
Was happy with last update and being able to find what I was looking for latest update it’s not setup where you can find anything that I usually listen to
Great needs more features
Lancebuzz on 6/21/2018
I like the app, it needs more features and a bigger music selection. I hope will expand in the future.
New update to UI is not good
smalhotra7 on 6/21/2018
Why make it like the website. Who wants to scroll horizontally on a phone, with images so big, you only see one at time, so much space wasted. Have to standardize everywhere is not always right. Youtube music is good app dont mess it up.
Pay to run in background
HitlerTheGod on 6/21/2018
If you can find what you’re looking for on Spotify, don’t bother with this.
Basically just YouTube but only songs.
Ogdodpgsox on 6/21/2018
It is probably better for your phone storage to just have YouTube instead of having a different app for just music, especially when there is Sound Cloud and Spotify, where you can exit the app and still have your music playing without paying for it. In my honest opinion, you should NOT buy this app. YouTube is just hungry for money, whereas you can have free music playing all the time without paying for it in the other music apps.
Was great
Metaloutlaw2456 on 6/21/2018
I can’t even get to my playlist unless I add something to a certain playlist. But I mean Ig I can still listen to music
Déçu - idée
bouva jsk on 6/21/2018
Pour moi le seul défaut de YouTube est que tu ne peux pas quitter l’application sans stopper la musique 🎶 !! Très Énervant ! Alors quand j’ai vu la nouvelle application je pensais que ça réglerais ce problème embêtant. Quel déception après l’avoir essayer. Please changer ça ! Puis aussi ce qui serait vraiment génial de faire, c’est de mettre les paroles des chansons ! C’est long mais ça vaut le coup ! En plus de proposer une nouveauté
Good but can be better
Matt trumble on 6/21/2018
The only thing I see wrong is the background play. You should have to pay for background play. I drive all day for work and listen to music all day. I don’t want my phone to be open while I’m listening to music. The background play should be an automatic free thing. Not something you have to pay hard earned money for. I will be deleting this app simply because I can find 5 other apps that allow this feature for FREE.
Eh, could be much better
Dead_Weather on 6/21/2018
It's YouTube but with music. Waste of space and the songs don't even play when you leave the app. I'd recommend not getting this and continue with YouTube. Every thing on this app is already on YouTube
Adding albums to playlists
YumikoLovesCake on 6/21/2018
Otherwise looks like a promising music app, but I do have one major issue with it. It’s not possible to add albums to playlists and that really bugs me. It’s rather inconvenient to add single songs to playlists one at a time when I have hundreds of songs to add. Now this might not be a problem if I could find a way to eg. Shuffle/play all of my downloaded songs or all of the songs in my library etc. Unfortunately I haven’t found one. So I’m stuck spending way too much time copying all my playlists from my old music app or just sticking to that one until the issue is fixed.
Tube music
Curtsxp on 6/21/2018
I like it a lot better than Apple music
Greats app
CarDan28 on 6/21/2018
The best music app ever! I don’t like paying everything month but it’s worth it every time. You get to save songs into a playlist, turn off the screen and it keeps playing, and also look every song up by the click of a button. Wonderful
Why I hate...
Anika525_Bruh on 6/20/2018
I used to love this app till the latest update I want to listen to the music I have liked not the music that is being recommended....
Amazing Mix Tape
Nicolas Bulchak on 6/20/2018
It has done an awesome job of mixing in what I listen to with what I might enjoy. So far so good.
Can not wait for this new YouTube music app
DrwcMichel on 6/20/2018
Much to be desired though. I will continue to use Google Play until this app can do at least half of what Google Play can. My hopes are high. I look forward to it. Thanks! (Will update review once I see some updates in the app)
Slow, clunky, lots of advertisements
Sundayzzs on 6/20/2018
Buffer takes a long time. No matter how many times I set quality to lowest setting, it always reverts back to 480p. App takes a long time to get to the song you want to play. Sometimes when trying to find a song I want to play, I change songs to see what I’m in the mood for. Advertisements take up 25% of the play time. (In a minute of music, 15 seconds are advertisements.
Where is the option for browsing?
yarnalt on 6/20/2018
Where is the menu for browsing artists,and genres? The only thing I can find are your recommendations, hotlist, and the music I’ve saved from your recommendations. I want to sub to premium but without this necessary, and basic feature It’s just not worth it.
YouTube at it again with the algorithm changes.
Bread.Luvvrr on 6/20/2018
App used to be awesome until the most recent update. Now your recommendation or songs tailored specifically for you are replaced with what feels like injected sponsored music. All I get of what I actually listen to is one little bar at the very bottom with 5 songs. Everything else is top 40 music that I never listen to.
Battery & Data killer
Capt Mediocre on 6/20/2018
Over a 45 min period with no screen lit, drained 30% of battery and used 178mb of data. NPR app has used 60 mb in last 4 days (40mins/day) and a fraction of the battery. What are collecting to use so much data and power?
dntcareaboutanicknamejustrate on 6/20/2018
Why would I pay $12 a month for the same thing Spotify has been doing (and doing better). Your whole app is a rip off of spotify, more expensive, and if I want to watch your shows, I still need a separate subscription whereas a lot of places bundle spotify (better music platform) with hulu (way better shows than what you are putting out). Youtube is becoming extinct. My mom is the only other person besides me that I know that still uses youtube.
Not bad
Dswitzz on 6/20/2018
Not bad at all
captainsnarky on 6/20/2018
I have YouTube Red/Premium. The email said my membership would carry over to this app for ad free listening. Why am I seeing ads?
New update is horrible
Fddbbb on 6/20/2018
Please go back to what you had now my playlist are all trash and I don’t get the same suggestions, you took 3 steps back with this update it should be changed I hate when people try to fix what isn’t broke
It’s good overall
Silvio0864 on 6/19/2018
I do wish lyrics were available for view in the app.
Becomes worse with each update.
pkittens on 6/19/2018
It’s a bunch music forced on my homepage that isn’t even close to what I normally listen too. Except for like maybe 2 artists.
I like it!
ribeyeking on 6/19/2018
I like the app, but I wish there was an easy way to get official tracks instead of someone's remix/dubbed over/personal recording where volume levels are all over the place. I also wish it kept a separate history from the YouTube app, having them shared makes it really hard to find "that cool video I watched a couple days ago", which I used to do.
No CarPlay
BearsIn3D on 6/19/2018
Needs CarPlay otherwise it’s useless to me, I play music mostly in my car through CarPlay.
noor637299291 on 6/19/2018
Very bad service and not available in a lot of countries
I love this
robinfone on 6/19/2018
Thanks for making this! I’m using Amazon Music but will stick with this because it’s so much more intuitive to use!
Very good Music app but lacks key features
dmark0822 on 6/19/2018
I really like the concept of this app! A good challenger to Spotify IMHO. I’m a YT premium subscriber and it does what it’s advertised like background play while using other apps and playing music in the lock screen. No complaints on the iPad version but there are some drawbacks to this however. You can’t zoom in to fill the screen on iPhone X while watching a music video in this app. As a result, I’ll most likely use the regular YT app to do this. If that feature gets added in a future update, I’ll add a 5th star to my review.
