This new update is the worst I have ever experienced. It is the most user Un Friendly ever. Who comes up with these new updates?? Haven’t you heard about the KISS system, Keep It Simple Stupid.
Underground Atlien on 8/20/2018
Y'all should have the "offline" option for personal playlists instead of y'alls "mixtape" that is created for your users. The "mixtape" is basically like a "radio" option, which plays different but similar artists. I'm sure a lot of your users would appreciate this change
Its not bad
Dhfvuuff on 8/20/2018
Seens like you copied and pasted spotify, which isnt bad at all better than apple tbh
Thanks, YouTube Music!
Game Kingpin on 8/20/2018
Ever since I got the Space Jam CD, I wanted to find the film score, and now that all of the music is complete, this goal is accomplished! I had to go all over the place to find and piece together, though. Overall, Great App!
aeedome on 8/20/2018
I don’t understand the point of this app you can leave the app without it ending, same thing happens when you turn off your phone
JayAre316 on 8/20/2018
👍 👍 👍

New feature
laraalejo on 8/19/2018
It would be nice if you guys would add a new feature which would allow me to set a timer por example if I go to sleep listening to music I could set a timer to stop the music a certain time.
Sign in error
itztrar on 8/19/2018
Ever since I got a new phone and updated to the new design, I literally can’t sign into the app. I just has the words sign in error flashing on the screen. I tried to reinstall but that somehow didn’t work. Pls help
SportsFanAlexander on 8/19/2018
Just No! Focus on Google Play with no videos!
Elric Keithar on 8/19/2018
Any way I can play my music and videos using a auto play? Instead of having to restart each song?
Good aside from recent updates
Grooveshark on 8/19/2018
Good app overall but has many issues. The app used to have a lot of variety in the music and showed a lot of artists I haven’t heard of before. Now the app recommends the same 5 songs every time I open the app. Every time I open a radio off of a specific artist (I listen to a lot of hip-hop and rap) I hear the one song and then playlist of “popular” music. It’s the same line up of songs every time. Frustrating that the slider bar for variety has been taken away, that was a major reason for switching from other streaming services. Being able to change variety allows me to stream music longer, not getting as frustrated that I hear the same songs again and again. The music that comes preloaded into playlists plays the same songs over and over and over again with no way to remove them. Even if I dislike the song, it will still play over and over and over and over and over. See how annoying it is when it does it over and over again? Yeah. Aside from these MAJOR issues, not a bad music streaming app.
I love this app
79124141 on 8/19/2018
I love this app is is easy and simple I can hear any music u want and it is free
Official Reckless on 8/19/2018
Can’t play while screen is locked
Wilcoxpcpro on 8/19/2018
I like the app OK. It seems like there is a lot of content available. However, it drives me absolutely crazy that I cannot continue playing music with the screen locked or while I’m trying to open another app. Looking at some of the previous comments, it looks like this used to be a feature, but is not included in the current version that I downloaded. If they fix that, I would keep the app installed.
Music should be able to play outside of the app
GasManRayy on 8/19/2018
This app is cool to use but it gets annoying when having to go outside of the app & the music cuts off. The app will be easier & better to use if the music will continue to play when outside the app
Please make it auto play for your car
Aboud3333 on 8/19/2018
Can you please make the app auto play when your in the car? Thank you! I think YouTube music is much better than any other music app even better than Apple Music. It has all kind of music, mixtapes, and international music. They have all music. Just please make it auto play when your driving not have to open the app and choose your playlist!
Add a sleep timer
Gutchi G on 8/19/2018
Add a sleep timer so it want stay playing all night
Poor streaming quality, massive library
RyanDecember on 8/19/2018
Steaming quality is noticeably poor, but music library is absolutely enormous. Kind of weird that you have to pay in order to not watch music videos, but with my unlimited data plan, I guess it doesn’t cost me anything.
Love it But...
Bigtrexfan0420 on 8/18/2018
It’s playing clean versions for my songs and it is ruining them. They are the official versions of the songs but the app is playing them as if they were the clean versions.
EyeBrandy on 8/18/2018
This is a garbage app. Avoid.
Missing feature
Jay Hammy on 8/18/2018
Something small but add the ability to continue song that was last played like Google music. If I revisit the app 3 hours later I should be able to press play and continue the last track vs searching and starting all over. Also add light theme option.
Content is great, performance inconsistent
Leonphoto on 8/18/2018
Youtube's algorithm is so good I find myself not skipping too many tracks on my mixtape which is awesome. But that's where the good ends. The interface is a little ambiguous and makes discovering music not so fun. Are you the type to skip through your queue until you find something that fits your mood? Good luck with that, this app doesn't let you skip around very fast. When you tap skip/next you have to wait till the song loads before hitting skip again, even if the song is downloaded to your device (UPDATE: 8/18/18 this has been addressed and fixed). Another disappointment is the app just won't remember where you left off, so if you pause a playlist and run some other apps it will crash and start fresh when you reopen. My last gripe with the app is that there is no carplay compatibility whatsoever. Most of the features missing are ones that other music apps use as pillars for stability and consistency, I have no idea why they opted to leave these out. YouTube has a ways to go as a music app but the content and algorithm are on point, don't change that.
YouTube done it once again
drinkwithjamandbread on 8/18/2018
This is honestly the best music app out there. The playlists are mind blowingly good. Like I cannot even believe this algorithm. Definitely recommend.
needs work
1maggie1 on 8/17/2018
when adding to playlists, can't add whole albums, can't find certain songs. just use Spotify yall
Ifartglitter on 8/17/2018
Is nice but just like ugh it keeps pausing everyone 3 secs I’m into the song sorry but I love it
Still no lock screen capabilities
rdrevil on 8/17/2018
I know I’m beating a dead horse ..... All we want is to be able to play YouTube from the lock screen and for music not to stop when the sleep wake but is pressed. I don’t care who’s fault it is apple/YouTube . Just give the people what they want!! There is no point in creating a separate music app without adding this feature .
Massive potential
rv5057 on 8/17/2018
Doesn’t seem like there is as much house music on it as YouTube, but it does link the two will get better I bet. The only thing I HATE is that the app won’t let you play music while the app is off-screen without paying for premium. I’ll keep using iTunes for mobile for this reason but YT Music is my go-to for computers now
Will continue subscription if.......
gmney on 8/17/2018
Needs a better platform for managing downloaded music. No sorting song or artist alphabetically is real dealbreaker. Also, merging unofficial audio (Mixtapes i.e) songs with official downloaded songs. No reason to sort official music in its own category. Needs a lot of work to make this app compete with Apple Music. The only reason this can compete right now is your music library which is why I signed up. Ability to find hidden music gems. Can’t find mixtapes on Apple Music or Spotify. I look forward to what’s in store for the next update.
Queue is no where to be found
tgwaste on 8/16/2018
Add to queue button literally does nothing.
Not Good unless your into “popular” stars
Terror7078 on 8/16/2018
I can’t listen to any of the covers I’m into because it doesn’t show up in the App. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯absolutely no point 🤔
Poor que
shembal on 8/15/2018
Hey man I like the app but all the music I download gets deleted
Could've been great
IronMayes on 8/15/2018
Can't close the app and have music playing without spending 10$/month. Might as well stick with the regular video app or get a real music app.
Good app
Wolfskinboots on 8/15/2018
It’s rlly good but I can’t click my downloads when my WiFi is off which is super annoying
Won’t run in background or multi-task
DaveR1969 on 8/15/2018
Not a bad app, essentially does what it says on the label. One annoyance and one huge shortcoming though: The annoyance is YouTube’s perpetual hawking of its YouTube Red or whatever its subscription service is called. I’m not going to subscribe; I’ll put up with the ads; you don’t have to keep asking me every few minutes if I want to sign up. There really should be a No and stop asking option. The huge shortcoming is that the app won’t play in the background meaning you’re stuck having to keep it open. You can’t use it to listen to music while you use other apps. This is a shame really as it’s not exactly a programming challenge and would definitely enhance the usability of the product.
Bad update
Spencer5051 on 8/15/2018
I hate this newest update. The algorithm serves the same stale music constantly. Will 5 star if y’all fix it.
Not supported
Dalibor93ku on 8/15/2018
It’s not supported in my country
YouTube #2
Ben Cunningham 123 on 8/15/2018
It is exactly the sane as YouTube. Don’t waste the time on this app.
There’s no Background Play for this app
Davvved on 8/15/2018
It’s weird cause the YouTube app has background music but YouTube Music app doesn’t have background music. Lol?
Please create for Bangladesh
Refat Hossain on 8/15/2018
Please create for Bangladesh because we love song.We know that these apps are a lot better. Please created
Love it!!!

Adding an equalizer
Pepe Damian Puga on 8/14/2018
Can you please add and equalizer make it more voiceover accessible? Thank you
Jam On !
Stevo5490 on 8/14/2018
Love the variety and depth of selections. Easy to use and very enjoyable
JenTha96 on 8/14/2018
It’s decent for a music app. Only problem is that it overheats my phone when I’m syncing any of the downloaded playlists and drains my battery heavily in the process. I’m using an iPhone 6s, so that may be the problem, but I don’t know.
Eminem is life and music is universal language
Jessy’ka Cecilia on 8/14/2018
I don’t like You Tube misusing the access I allow and using my likes and downloads against me in a game that I’ve already won. I don’t like the ideals that You Tube must support whereby they would choose to use my listening history against me rather than to help me in this dynamic game that I’ve won a long time ago. However. The application is easy. It is always available. It allows me to escape the reality of North Carolina and enter a world that soothes my soul and music is the cure for all that is incurable. Not to mention you can access what ever content you’d like to access to grow as an individual and soul and it allows one to learn where they are regardless of socioeconomic constraints. The teacher appears when the student is ready and the information is on You Tube. It’s not about degrees it’s about growth. 🦋
Can’t “minimize” and listen
Tevatanman on 8/14/2018
I wish you could have the app running in the background and still listen. As soon as you hit the home button, the music stops.
Almost there
Ckaffer on 8/13/2018
I am an Apple Fan boy...that turned to Android at one point for one phone and now I am back to an iPhone. While I was there I discovered Google Play Music and the ad free YouTube that a subscription gave me. YouTube Music is almost there. I would like my music library to be available and also (which I know is not Google’s fault) more integration with Siri. As it stands I have to ask Siri to open Google Assistant and then ask Google Assistant to play a song...really annoying.
Great app, but expensive.
26592549/6402748205 on 8/13/2018
Yeah, it’s almost perfect for me, except 15$ a month is a little extreme.
Its “ok”
HollyA2007 on 8/13/2018
Tooons of ads after every 2-3 songs. Frustrating that you can’t skip through them & they are SO frequent. Also needing to have screen on entire time is battery draining.. & you can’t ‘shuffle’ your playlists. So if you’re stuck w/the same playlist from 1st to last every time. Shuffle option would be great! I give 3 stars since its free, the songs are not covers, & I do like the ‘suggested’ list I get when I’m listening to a song... too bad I’ll probably look for another app though...
jonathanfrankies15 on 8/13/2018
This is a good app ps not a robot
