Might have saved me the trouble...

I downloaded this hoping to be able to listen to music in the background while doing other things. I knew it'd have ads, no problem. You need an account; you need to sign in. Well, if you'd told me that right from the start, you could have saved me a few minutes, and almost 90MB of data. Can't use it without an account, so deleted it. Thanks!

The subscription cost an atrocious amount of money, and while I love the features it gives you, even while subscribed you can't use a simple feature such as changing your offline playlist. This app is a waste of space if you don't pay the subscription, you won't be able to play music in the background or use the audio only mode. You'll experience a better performance in this scenario using a safari or Google chrome browser instead while searching up youtube which will at least let you play the app in the background, there's plenty of apps that are much better. This app honestly disgusts me, get s Netflix subscription instead of this crap. In order for this app to be useable, the subscription needs to be a lot less money per month, and needs to allow you to manage offline playlist
Demonetized Videos on YouTube
K.I.S.D on 7/20/2017
I've heard about many YouTubers unhappy with the demonetizing of their videos because of either course language,graphic displays of violence and etc. I believe that this new YouTube policy is taking away from the entertainment of YouTube's fan base.So in an effort to help start a change,I would to ask on behalf of all of the common YouTubers or famous YouTubers,that Google does something to help relieve some of the chaos that is happening within the youtube community with the problem of demonetizing videos.I hope Google acknowledges that this is a current issue and continues to cause numerous YouTubers their jobs as working on their channel.As YouTube my know already,thru provide a job for many YouTuber on the verge of one million subscribers or more.This job is what helps people like DanTDM,SuperMarioLogan,and even Markepliyer to support themselves.Without dedicated YouTubers like the channels I previously stated,YouTube wouldn't has as many users as they would now.So I advise YouTube to try to reconsider this new policy,simply because I know that YouTube would like to keep its business running with a large user rate,and the YouTubers would like to keep their jobs with entertaining their fan base. I will admit that the policy has been effectively keeping YouTube a safer environment where streaming videos without the hassle of the content issues.But despite the policy being effective in that region of issues,there are multiple people that would say that the content youtube would like the block it's users from is what YouTubers users love to watch each time they tune into their favorite channels.Some of youtube's users are mature enough to see all of YouTube's content within its expansive world of videos.Taking away the content the more mature users like to view is almost like taking away your favorite meal from your favorite restaurant. All in all,I recommend that YouTube does something to help both sides of its users:Those who dislike the content of some channels' videos,and those who relish the mature content of a YouTubers' videos
Free version = same as YouTube App
listerhawk on 7/19/2017
There is no point in using this app unless you have a premium account. You cannot disable the video and you cannot lock your screen. This making it exactly the same as the regular YouTube app. Seems silly to me.
iOWSLA on 7/19/2017
You should be able to pick what songs you want to save offline.
Never again!!!
done playing games on 7/19/2017
I can't believe YouTube would need to pull this kind of billing scam. In the relentless search for immediate profit, i was billed unknowingly and went through tons of drama to undo a forced subscription. Thanks so much YouTube red. I never used your service, not even once. But you got your $12.99, i have now taken my credit card off of my i phone account. And i will never speak of you kindly again. I can't understand why, a company or an idea, would knowingly bilk funds from a consumer when they never utilized three service. These are the actions of a predatory business plan. In a budding market place, a new way to make commerce, this style of free trial, gone rogue, is exactly how short term profits, outweigh the long-term goal. Shame on you!!!
Don't do it people! Get iHeart for free!
Stop paying for a service that others give you free...or be another company's money slave...your choice
Very bad
Shiva135 on 7/18/2017
Only for red subscribers. Does not play audio only. Does not play in the background. Does not show your Playlists from YouTube.
FreedomBudgie on 7/18/2017
Background play no longer works.
Needs to be better
TXN_Cheesehead_ on 7/18/2017
This app is the only app that can be open for it to work. You cannot lock your screen and listen to music. If you switch to another app or lock your phone, the music will stop playing. It's great that you have access to all these songs but I don't want my phone to be unlocked just to listen to music. Fix it YouTube!
FNaFMaser10167 on 7/17/2017
Love the app 💯
WaliBee on 7/17/2017
I love the organization and quality of the music whether in video mode or audio only. It's been flawless so far, no complaints.
Dionne3382 on 7/17/2017
Working well for me
Great for car rides
TheUnordinaryNapkin on 7/16/2017
This app is pretty fun to use, and it tailors your station to fit in to songs similar to the ones you have listened to. And if you go into liked videos, you can also just watch the videos you watch on the regular YouTube app.
Good as long as you have Red with out it you might as well use the normal you tube app
y u read dis on 7/16/2017
Meh better than Spotify because it's song variety is much deeper... I have Countless complaints for Spotify lacking older songs or so he's from less known groups that I could find on YT .... However Spotify does have a very nice equalizer that I can use in order to fine tune my music listening experience. Google play music is still my preferred music listening platform because of its Versailles and variety but YT music is still a solid nice subscription based service that provides adequate middle grounds for features and music catalogs.... if you are interested try the standard YT music and try the YT music with a free trial you will appreciate the additional features...
Messed up
i dont like youtube music on 7/16/2017
I try to get a the free trail but it wouldn't let me and it takes forever to load with no wifi
pedie1987 on 7/16/2017
Excellent music app
This is my second fav 🎶 app! Apple Music/ ITunes #1
🇵🇷🤝🇺🇸⚖️💵⚖️💰💞☮️ on 7/15/2017
I love this app because I can find new sxxx and all kinds of it!! Apple is a little more strict. Ha
Uziboiii on 7/15/2017
I love it because I can get music here that I can't get anywhere else. A bit pricey and something I wish would be on here is a sleep timer for when I'm going to bed.
Youtube red fail
rpm1313 on 7/15/2017
- content that you dont pay for - subscription that I cant share even across my own devices - 'music continues to play even after you close the app' - purported as top benefit of youtube red, but No, sorry, we decided to silently take that out. Technically I am paying $120 a year for nothing.
Better than trying to use regular YouTube
SKYBUDDER2000 on 7/14/2017
Recuested to much information
Lanchasybotes on 7/13/2017
To subscribe you almost need to give your ss #! Your email should be enough.
Many problems
UserfromCA on 7/13/2017
- Doesn't resume music after the end of a phone call whether cellular or VOIP. - Recent update is good (7/12/2017). - Content availability is amazing compared to competitions. - No lossless sound quality yet, hopefully soon.
Evandar Serept on 7/12/2017
It is useful sometimes. But it randomly skips songs, and I often find my favorite songs skipped.
Love it!
Ginna ginna on 7/12/2017
Love it
It's great
I hateit on 7/12/2017
It's just YouTube and I love youtube
Not good for same song playlist
nomoMoana on 7/12/2017
I just wanted the same compilation to play all night as my daughter slept... but it just keeps changing on its own to other songs it thinks I want... even though I've already picked 11 hours of music... I don't want MOANA coming on at 3am mmmk? And it's kind of confusing to use. I'm not impressed.
It's a good scam
Danni278 on 7/11/2017
It's really good at first when u can listen without ads and without having the app open, but it's no good if u have pay monthly to listen to it outside the app, there's better usage of that money then paying for something that shud be free, but u have to pay it monthly I find it not worth it
It is what it says
Hbdbdhhrr on 7/11/2017
It works offline and you can play any type of song that is on YouTube but that's just the best part of it the rest is all pay and monthly pay and subscription pay and you're just better off with musi it's an app that's exactly the same you can modify how ur song sounds and the only bad part of musi it's that you can't play it offline
So lame...
rosorin on 7/10/2017
... it can't play music while phone is locked, unless you pay up. No, thanks!
I liked it better before when...
I Is Annie on 7/10/2017
I liked it better before when you could lock the screen and when you didn't need internet. Now it's just annoying. Getting a better app that lets you play without wifi and that lets you turn it halfway off.
The BEST APP for music listening Period but!
matt on 7/10/2017
Can't seem to understand why all other music apps gives you the toggle switch to switch between Bluetooth connections and this app does not. Please fix this. Will be glad to bump to 5 stars once this is has been resolved.
Bad update
Heymansorry on 7/10/2017
Why does every time I try to listen to music now after I updated it that "music paused another user in a another location is listening" um excuse me ? it used to be fine when me and my father were using at the same time before hello? That's what I pay 15$ a month for! 👎😡 I'm canceling my subscription and going back to Apple Music. Horrible update.
Omar Majano on 7/10/2017
I like the new update that you can choose your own offline playlists

It's pretty good
Krorsai on 7/9/2017
Lots of good quality music. Like having a radio, without having to go get a radio. If you've got a great radio, not a whole lot of reason to get this over YouTube, as YouTube can do pretty much everything YouTube music can, but I'm a big fan of this app.
I wanted this app to play while my phone is locked
Miss.urias on 7/9/2017
It doesn't wk I'm trying to cancel my subscription and can't ugghhh
It's Great
KMomma on 7/9/2017
Love it!
Very buggy
Edraider66 on 7/9/2017
I've had YouTube music for about 3 months now and all in all it's pretty decent except for two things. 1, there isn't that great of a selection of some of the older stuff I like. Occasionally it surprises me with some really obscure great old stuff but it's definitely missing a lot of things. 2, it's EXTREMELY buggy. It skips songs a lot. Sometimes the music will stop, and it says it's still playing but no sound is coming out. The offline playlist is just a wreck. It's supposed to update every night, which actually seems like a little bit much, but I'd be lucky to have it update once a week. On top of that, I can never even get it to play! Sometimes when I'm listening to a playlist and I have it on shuffle it just keeps playing the same two songs. With a little work and some interface improvements it could be great but as of now, it's a 3/5 for me.
Slippery_Squid on 7/9/2017
For me, it would be perfect to be able to listen to music with my phone locked, but you can't with this app. Not only that, but there are also apps. Other than that, the app is pretty solid. I would recommend to a friend.
Best music
Raychele22 on 7/9/2017
Its so worth paying for you get the videos and can also change it to audio mode to conserve data...most music apps I've download I always find a few songs they don't have but youtube has it all and more!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!
The White Bird of Wisdom on 7/8/2017
Love it!!!!!!
Great app.
MHKat on 7/8/2017
Very easy to use, and of offline mixtape is a great feature.
My music app since Jan 2016!
The707Kid on 7/8/2017
They FINALLY made it so you can pick what is saved to the offline tape! Thank effin god I've wanted that feature forever. A real good app for music. But they still gotta make the interface a little more streamlined. I've used this app for music for about a year and a half and they've made a lot of good improvements since then!
F$@@ You
Zorroblanko on 7/8/2017
F$@@ you YouTube, so I have to pay to close the app so I can listen to music?? That is stupid. Absolutely STUPID.
Overall great!
O.oYo.OuNgMo.Oneyo.O on 7/8/2017
I've been subscribed for about a year now and I love it. Only wish the subscription was cheaper because otherwise everything is great.
Best music app
BmoreBryan on 7/8/2017
Nothing like nonstop music!
Fire hazard 48 on 7/7/2017
This app is dumb why can't it be like Spotify and let you run the "free trial" without a payment method. Because first off when it asks your for your credit card. Your gonna get charged that rediculous $12.99 before your free trial runs out because they make it hold on your account. I'm not stupid. Come on YouTube don't fool people.
Almost perfect
Cromels on 7/7/2017
Should be able to play music with phone locked even on free version. Having that AND adds is unacceptable.
Awesome app!
thenicestass on 7/6/2017
Great and new music wish it had an alarm setting though...
