Useless app
IanVampire on 1/23/2018
💁🏻‍♂️ just an usual pinched yt app
Buggy :(
akthemusiclover on 1/22/2018
Songs skip whenever switching between background and foreground playback, and sometimes on the iPhone X the back button goes to the top corner and becomes untappable
Super awesome!!! 👍🏻👍🏻
KingxJay_420 on 1/22/2018
So far I’ve loved my free trial and I plan on staying with it.The fact that you can put the music videos on audio only to not waist your battery is awesome!! Highly recommend it
doesn’t display comments, ratings, timestamps
gravytop on 1/21/2018
I like to see what others have to say about albums/songs on Youtube. None of that appears possible through this app.
The absolute BEST app on the app store no question
Bugamashoo on 1/21/2018
I love YouTube music soooooo much it always predicts exactly what song is going to be stuck in my head, and the YouTube membership is worth every penny. Every single recommendation is spot on and I have never disliked a single one.
Remmlp on 1/21/2018
This app was hard to get used to at first. But once you start searching and liking the music you love. YouTube music learns and suggest similar music. I’ve gotten the chance to listen to new artist and enjoy my favorite ones without having to always use the search engine. Give it a try
Almost useless (Probably totally)
TotallyNotABotReviewer on 1/21/2018
*This may get stuck being buried under the bazillion fake reviews supporting this app.* Whoever decided to develop this just took the YouTube app, splash it with a different color of paint, spit shine it, and add an extra word to make it sound EXCLUSIVE. There is nothing much you can do on this app that you can’t do on the YouTube app. “But muh offline music.” Two words. Three syllables. YouTube Red. This new subscription service was designed to grab money from you to enjoy the “premium” benefits of this app. No seriously, this app is only useful when you decide to fork over your money. Don’t even get me started on the free trial designed to lure you into this service. I’m starting to give up on YouTube. Even if it was just a walking advertisement for YouTube Red, it missed a lot of potential to become an app that deserves more than one star. Here’s one key feature. Background playback. Remember the days of iOS 5 when you could play YouTube in the background of your phone? Not many people remember because of the train wreck YouTube has become since then.
Apps not working
Trixie2010 on 1/21/2018
The app will not load even after being deleted phone restarted or any other ways on my device. Once this is fixed I love the app itself
Love it but could use more convenience
Action-Star on 1/20/2018
I listen to all my music off YouTube; many of the artists I like are exclusive to YouTube. As such, this app is a dream come true for me, especially with YouTube red under my belt. I really wish it was more compatible with CarPlay and Apple Watch and the such, though; it would be so much more convenient. Asides from luxury details like equalizers, too, I think the app has been steadily improving and is great in the functions it boasts.
Station Variety setting removed?
sarachailol on 1/20/2018
I like the app but why was the option to set the variety of the station (from artist-only to wider genre) removed? It was something I used everyday.
Imose22 on 1/20/2018
Since the last update, YouTube red has completely lost my Whole liked playlist. How is this fixable??
Quick review
Dustin Mills on 1/19/2018
Hey little bit repetitive, I would like to hear more music I haven’t heard in years. Also songs that were never real big hits that I am joy much like gone Tim a girl set this Circus down album. I would like to hear not only the hit songs but also the other songs. Thanks
juhyunson101 on 1/19/2018
I love this so much bc it looks at what I watch on youtube and it puts it on YouTube music. So when I watch music videos on YouTube, it recommends me some more on YouTube music. I know that might sound like YouTube is stalking u but honestly, it saves me time from typing what at I want to watch. So I think this is a great app 👍😁😁😁
Great app just expensive
Flying jalepino on 1/19/2018
Kills your battery pretty quick if you don’t lock your phone because of the videos but I use it like pandora or slacker. Price is pretty steep though. Maybe a video-less version for cheaper? That’d be nice
Glorified YouTube app
Annoyed EeveeKnight on 1/19/2018
Every practical option for listening to music (video continues if out of app, for example) is locked behind a paywall with YouTube red. If you’re not willing to pay for it, you’re basically just downloading YouTube but only with music on it.
Bautabaracoa on 1/18/2018
The best music and video very entertaining
Only music good
MikeBalloon on 1/17/2018
Keeps me from watching videos I don’t want to waste time with
Not impressed.
Gcadhmj on 1/17/2018
The reason I downloaded this app was because all other apps like safari, google, YouTube etc. all stop the music when you exit the app, and because of other reviews, I thought that wouldn’t be the case. However, you have to buy YouTube red for the music to continue playing.
You'll like it.
weedandwine on 1/17/2018
Easy to use and navigate through once you get the hang of it. Just a couple days I got it figured out. The button that turns video off is nice. I'd like to see song and album information, like year recorded.
bpoda on 1/17/2018
For this I use YouTube is equal, really?,what is the difference? Is the same!
is mandatory
John Waivers on 1/17/2018
Unlike the YouTube video app, it seems there is no way to use this app without creating an account and signing in. Data harvesting.
I wish it contain youtube features
ALW911 on 1/16/2018
We need to see the songs release date The app need a little more improvements (the play in background is not as good as the YT app) The songs stops when moving between the home screen and the interface) 18:9 iPhone X aspect ratio need to be treated like the YT app. Double tap to skip 10 seconds The release date is the most important thing i believe in addition to dislikes and popularity
Annoying after the update
afsralKstkstkzkrJrrkJ on 1/15/2018
After updating the app, my YouTube Red subscription had to be renewed. And then when I opened the app, my offline playlist will not play many songs, it has an error I can’t even click the songs. Same with my downloaded albums, the music has an error symbol. I even went as far as to redownload all of my albums and playlists as an attempt to fix them and all the songs that had errors before still have them. I can’t even listen to them out of my playlists or downloads. It’s completely messed up I can’t listen to my favorite music or albums. Please fix this there’s no point in me paying $13 a month if I can’t even listen to the music I’ve saved specifically.
Gfsuperman on 1/15/2018
I’m seriously sick of these apps trying to get you to sign for premium crap. I can’t lock my phone and listen to music or I can’t select a specific song, or I can’t skip anymore songs..... SCREW ALL OF YOU, I’m going back to torrents!!
The main reason to pick Google Home over Amazon Alexa.
trojandnc! on 1/15/2018
Being in IT and being an owner of both the Google Home and Amazon Alexa, many of my friends ask which is better. The first thing that I always mention is that if they pay for any additional music service like Spotify the like. Most people do. I tell them to cancel whatever, spend the same 10-ish bucks on YT music and it gets you everything! While artists fight over what streaming service can play their music (at the fan’s expense) the ALL put videos on YouTube. In fact there is a famous pop star that once released an “album” that was all videos and no physical cd. Try playing any of those songs on streaming services. Now sign up for YT Music and ask your Google Home to play any of those songs. Voilà! That in itself makes YT Music invaluable as no one has the $$$ to just up and start their own video channel that can compete with YT Music. Winner = FANS! Get YouTube Music or Google Play Music now because if you subscribe to one, the other comes with the subscription.
Great, but...
Because idek on 1/14/2018
I guess in one of the recent updates the slider to add or reduce variety in the stations is gone. I really liked that feature and feel like it shouldn’t have been removed.
YT red
Jbully805bdogs on 1/14/2018
Love this app, music and motivating speakers with no commercials. 3$ a month more totally worth it over Spotify
Can’t lock phone
susan9166 on 1/14/2018
Can’t lock my phone without the app and music shutting off! I would love to use this app but I don’t want to drain my battery because of it! Please fix!!
Background play behind paywall
Brokeboy Forever on 1/14/2018
its not available in my country
SuoBir0n on 1/14/2018
i downloaded this app and it says that its is still nit avaikable in my country i am from the philippines and i hope it will be available soon
I really like it it so cool
Onyxonyx21 on 1/13/2018
I really like it it so cool
Can’t Open The App.
BreGarcia on 1/13/2018
I used to have the subscription for YouTube Red but now that I want to buy the subscription again it kicks me out all the time.
Please bring back variety tuning slider
Pradak3r on 1/13/2018
My review would be 5 stars, but after the app developers removed the variety slider that allowed us to control the variety of the music that gets played, I have to give this app only 2 stars. That was a big reason I used YouTube Music, which I’m sure is also true for other people. Please fix this!
Benkevin1 on 1/13/2018
If this is a music app I should be able to listen to music offscreen. But with YouTube Music, this is not the case. I would give this app 5 stars if I didn’t have to pay to listen to music when I turn my phone off or switch apps.
Not available in Thailand
u4yzarc on 1/13/2018
Such a waste 🤮
Missing navigation gestures ruin otherwise good app
MrMindless on 1/12/2018
The top left corner is the hardest corner to tap on iPhone X. Yet the only way to back out of settings and menus in this app is a navigation button waaay up there. No swipe from the left screen edge. I have no idea whether sliders are on/off in settings because standard controls aren’t used and they are not labeled. Grey means on and bright red means off? Maybe? Don’t try to do you own thing here, google. This is iOS. Embrace the interface, please!
T. Woot.
Sirtee (Tavar) on 1/12/2018
I like YouTube overall magnificently, but the music needs improvement. It was an enormous amount of music I listen to (Hip Hop, Soul, Blues, and Gospel. But it does not have the enough classic Hip Hop or original Gangster Rap. I agree with the edited version of Hip Hop to a point, but since I’m paying for music I want the original music available to play; but keep the edited music available. Just produce a stronger variety (uncut) of music!
Pay to use with other app
Eric Peace on 1/12/2018
I downloaded as it said it would let you play while switching to other apps. Of course it doesn't work unless you pay for YouTube red. Might as well put that in the description.
Pick it up
Baka_Patrol on 1/12/2018
Skips every other song when you listen to your downloaded songs. Also when you shuffle, it makes a Playlist of 10 songs in your library and just loops it instead of shuffling ALL your songs
shamgar2421 on 1/11/2018
YouTube is awesome
Google iHome miny
The ldub313 on 1/11/2018
YT Music is a cool app but is just that when it comes to connecting to a google home mini YouTube read and you don’t want to pay money to get YouTube read to connect to a speaker because you should be able to connect speaker without having to have YouTube red
Azer.HZ on 1/11/2018
Music player with no equalizer, why do I need it?? I can do same things on regular youtube.
Add delete button!
Panic! In the Finals on 1/11/2018
I liked YouTube Red when you guys had the delete button. I jam to Panic! At the Disco or Linkin Park and am always brought down by Lil Yatchy. I do not like this kind of music and it ALWAYS shows up on my playlist! Also, if someone puts a thumbs down on a song, DO NOT PUT IT ON THE DOWNLOAD LIST PLEASE. They disliked it for a reason! If they dislike music on their playlist, make it so it is instantly deleted again AND NOT REDOWNLOADED.
Best app ever!
Gael1765 on 1/10/2018
I can use this app where ever I go and put on my headphones to listen to my best song.
gisellebumble on 1/10/2018
Omg this app is awesome because you can choose your favorite songs and it has different combinations of so many brilliant choices.
Can’t stream if you live in Alaska even with red
Orlando j Sanchez on 1/10/2018
I’ve used YouTube music for a around almost two years an it’s one of my favorite platforms for listening to music and very easy to discover and search new music. Recently this all changed because it’s displaying a message saying “music streaming isn’t available yet in this country” when I live in The United States, I don’t know if this is because I live in Alaska but it is part of The United States but it completely shut off my Ability to stream music which is the whole reason I got it
DB7295 on 1/10/2018
Why do you need YouTube red to listen to music when your screen is off.
Music stops when I lock the phone.
Ksh98 on 1/10/2018
This is not a music app if I can’t lock the phone and keep it in my pocket and listen to songs. Ya good that my YouTube library directly works.
Great App for music
Sqwaupdiguwop on 1/10/2018
Great app for listening to music. Especially with YouTube Red. It is very nice. The only issue I have is I try to download music and it won’t download sometimes. It’ll say it’s attempting to download but never download it. Hopefully this will be fixed. Besides that it’s a great app to listen to your favorite artist whenever you want.
