Time for a change
Adamfmoore on 5/24/2018
The app needs a full overhaul. It's been the same for too long.
It’s okay
<3-Victoria Izabella on 5/24/2018
It’s okay
Carplay is a joke
chunalt787 on 5/24/2018
Standard Google throwing something out and forgetting they wrote it in the first place. Overall it's an awesome appbut carplay is a mess and really needs to be fixed up.
Make up your minds
Kaidotech on 5/24/2018
One of the reasons I don’t trust google anymore is they can never make up their mind with what apps they want to keep and what apps they want to kill. Google reader? Gone. Now this is going to get axed and mixed in with YouTube music? Guess what, some of us don’t WANT YouTube music. You’re going to lose a lot of customers constantly shuffling apps. Then again looking at the messaging nightmare on Android I’m not even surprised.
Fix the edit playlist
Jralvarenga87 on 5/24/2018
Anytime I add a song it is not letting me know if I already have it in that playlist. This is a working feature cuz it works on my galaxy phones but I guess Apple can’t get the same love ..... don’t screw this up with YouTube music
The worst streaming service I have used
Leylove3 on 5/24/2018
Has a lot of bugs and continually stops working even with excellent WiFi. I switched from Songza when they were purchased by Google. The simplicity and features of Songza were either not retained or executed horribly. I tried really hard to use\like this app but it is beyond frustrating.
Very good
Jakki the original on 5/24/2018
I wish you could work with it offline but other than that it's wonderful.
Buggy and slow on iPhone 6
hdeygvji on 5/24/2018
Consistently has hanging downloads while downloading for offline listening. Clearing the cache and restarting the app sometimes fixes the problem, sometimes it does not. Do not use this service if you are relying on downloading for offline listening.
Worth subscription

Comes with YouTube Red. Needs Apple Watch support
Often CarPlay issues
MrBStill on 5/22/2018
I love the Play Music app way more than iTunes or Apple Music. I have use Google play and play music for a long time. But once I got a new vehicle with the CarPlay actually or feature the Google play music has quite often caused issues. Whether it was now playing this song or delaying to be pulled up in the app or stating there is not connection when trying to pull up playlist. Majority of the time I am using my actual phone to start play music from a playlist or simply the library. I have seen other reviews with the same response, so I know I am not the only one. I’m sure part of the reason is because I am using an Apple phone with google play music. But also using the CarPlay feature seems to support more iPhone features than Google features. Even still I would prefer to use Google play music rather than the Apple Music. Excited for when there has been and update sent out for this issue to be resolved. Honestly, this is the only reason for a 3 star rating. It’s pretty important! Removing that dilemma; EASILY A 5 STAR RATING.!.!
Thebest app ever made
Rockscience66 on 5/21/2018
Best music ever in the app
I’m canceling because of this janky app
Tich Lord on 5/21/2018
My app has never worked right on either my 6s or my new hotness iPhone X. Shouldn’t the new hotness be able to handle one tiny streaming app? YouTube Red will be sorely missed, because it and YouTube Music are both pretty amazing, but that doesn’t make up for the shortcomings of the main app. Design and UI are terrible. Across both of my devices the songs frequently “skip” or stop playing without intervention. You can’t use other apps while playing because it will cause the same issues. This issue is independent of playing downloaded or streaming music. Scrolling through menus and playlists generally breaks the disappearing header/search bar so it becomes inaccessible. There’s just a host of problems that should have been solved in the year I’ve had this app.
Yoyoyoboiii on 5/21/2018
I love this app! Even though I have an iPhone I got this app because I prefer the options. The only thing I would like to see improved is maybe add like a button so you can automatically sort your music by title or artist alphabetically, because it’s kind of annoying to do it by hand. Other than that this app is fantastic, they had the new BTS album within a day
ANKHEL AJ on 5/21/2018
Always play the best tracks that are hard to find! One of the best sources for real hip hop!
Ok app but lots of bugs
Docrbc on 5/20/2018
I'm a big fan of Google play and I like that YouTube red comes with it. But it's about time for an update. The app isn't super user friendly compared to other streaming apps. Scrolling gets stuck often and the search button hides when you have a song on the screen. You can add a song to play next but when you queue music it adds it to the bottom of whatever playlist you have. Also visually they layout could be improved.
An annoying Bug
Rogcgv on 5/20/2018
When I’m streaming my music I will leave the app and then when I get back the playback gets choppy for a few seconds.
Constantly skips or stops
Mr Naji on 5/20/2018
Needs to be optimized. It could be my device but its less than half full
Keeps pausing
shoney369 on 5/20/2018
Have the family plan. While listening, I keep getting a pop up window wishing the app about the music paused because it looks like I’m listening on another device.
Bug with casting audio
taylorb167 on 5/20/2018
The app is pretty good with the exception of one bug. After disconnecting from Bluetooth it and trying to cast, the speakers will make a noise that casting it connecting, but is actually connected when you play music.
Bad stuttering performance
Pianodude77 on 5/19/2018
This app does not perform well! When entering an album to view and select songs, the scrolling performance is choppy, it is not smooth like Apple Music or like the same app on Android. YouTube on iOS 11 has a similar problem. When I’m scrolling through the comments, scrolling is choppy. I wonder why that is? Is Apple intentionally slowing down google apps, to make their apps seem better. I don’t have any issues with these apps on android. It seems suspicious!
Update Credit Card Info
Bear48 on 5/19/2018
I love this app. it's my go to in ANY situation. but I have one problem. I'm unable to update my credit card information via app once I switched banks. Hopefully it's something I'm overlooking but as of right now I've gone through each section on the app. when I find the correct section, I can not select it. is this going to get fixed soon?
Cannot share playlists
Trefonics on 5/18/2018
Unable to share playlists.
Beyond amazing
pimp daddy 0 on 5/18/2018
It lets you lisn to music offline ounce you rate and write a review and you don’t have to pay and lisn free and pick any song
Great offline mode!
Isvkran on 5/18/2018
The app is fantastic, but I especially love the “download only” mode. It’s so simple to use and clear unlike Spotify which hides this feature deep in settings. Great selection of music and playlists.
Constantly removes songs
WTFox06 on 5/18/2018
For past few months this app has been removing songs from my playlist, even ones downloaded directly to my SD card on my iOS. Constantly having to hunt down songs and adding them to them back to playlists has become such a waste of time that I finally just deleted the app and canceling my Google Play subscription.
cuchunflas on 5/17/2018
Is this app paid ?
Not working with my new iPhone
Nat da bat :) on 5/17/2018
For whatever reason it will NOT allow me to buy a new song/album. It’s only giving me streaming and radio options. I’ve tried everything, looked up answers, restarting the app and phone, and even fully reinstalling the app on my phone again. I’ve had this new phone almost a week and only just ran into this problem. But I won’t continue using this if it doesn’t get fixed. I don’t have data to use the radio. I need to be able to purchase and download the song.
I can’t believe this is a google product !
Kobayashimarou on 5/17/2018
This thing is so incredibly buggy, I don’t even know where to begin. Downloaded songs constantly stop, skip and play on their own. The earphone volume increases on it its own, constantly freezes, sometimes downloads don’t show. It’s absolutely pathetic. I don’t know how they haven’t gotten around to addressing these issues, seems every single review here points pretty much the same issues. This is without getting into layout and customization options which, in the case of the former are just stupid the latter, doesn’t exist. Horrendous experience. I can’t believe this is a google product.
Crazy long buffering times
Buried in the boneyard on 5/16/2018
Maybe since the last ios update this app has been bugging out. Every other minute, sometimes more often than that, it gets stuck, completely unresponsive for about 15 seconds. It's happening often enough that I'm considering switching to another service.
Jdbarrero on 5/15/2018
I'm ready to cancel my membership. This is ridiculous. I've been using YouTube music instead. I'm so done
Can’t delete songs from playlist
Crazed4555 on 5/15/2018
Just recently when I try to delete a song from my playlist it doesn’t remove that song but deletes a different song in my playlist and its really annoying iv tried reinstalling the app and no luck pls fix this
App doesn’t want to play music over LTE!
Kik for iPad on 5/15/2018
I know there was an update for the Google Play Music app 3 weeks ago, but honestly I’m having a hard time, I have my whole music library transferred from my computer to my Google account so I can have all my music with me at all times, but the app doesn’t play all my songs while on LTE & gives me an error message saying “Can’t play this song right now.” Then when I’m on WiFi it’s fine, also when I scrub through the song it starts the song all over again as if the app doesn’t recognize the song time length. One more thing, when I tap next for the next track from my lock screen, the app stops then it takes 40 seconds to play the next song, but before moving to the next song it says “Play Music” as if the app doesn’t respond to the action of tapping next. Please fix these issues, I really rely on Google Play Music since some songs are not even on Spotify or Apple Music. Thanks.
The Worst
Smittle Bit on 5/15/2018
Buggy, fails, unresponsive, works really poorly with Home / Chromecast, particularly if there are multiple devices in the home.
Terrible compared to Spotify
Troyyy M on 5/14/2018
I used this app when I first got my iPhone and would freeze almost every song and say “sorry cannot play at time” when it was songs from my library!
Crashes and Lags
the mestizo kid on 5/14/2018
Used to have an Android phone and the app would run fine for the most part without and major issues. I've now noticed though this isn't the case with iPhones. From my 6, to 6s and now X the app constantly freezes and lags a lot.
Wtrdg3 on 5/14/2018
I have the prime subscription. Buggy on my iPhone, songs will disappear from playlist, cannot delete songs from playlist with app, sometimes arrow to go back or get out of a playlist does not appear. Not a huge fan of the interface either. Google home will not acknowledge my existing playlist 50% of the time. Lots of other random bugs as well. Very surprised a company like Google would have such a poor performing app. Have not tried on a Droid, may work better there. Does have excellent music library and can access pretty much from any device.
Buggy and Slow
GumbiStew on 5/14/2018
Google Play Music app is extremely SLOW!!!! Google obviously does not care about this app. If they did, we would see more updates and an improved app.
Love it but need more features
Yungjell on 5/14/2018
This music platform is awesome but the mobile app needs more features. Such as podcasts and a social media feature where I can follow my friends playlists. This would make my review 5/5.
“Unable to start radio” 😤😤
Verified Customer. on 5/13/2018
There’s all the music I listen to and it’s great but the only problem is trying to start radio from an album, it just doesn’t work at all, it says “unable to start radio” and it freaks me out bc you can’t fix it and they won’t fix it.
Constant Freezing and Crashing
Jajghdwjdjc on 5/13/2018
This app worked well at the start but after a while, the app will constantly freeze and not play music. It may be because my music library is large, but that is no excuse as to why the app is so bad. I would not recommend this app if you want to have a completely functioning app.
I would give 5 stars but..
Grimsly Michaels on 5/13/2018
It seems every other song I play starts skipping and freaking out despite it being downloaded to my device. It seriously takes away from the experience. If this issue can’t be resolved I will uninstall and find another suitable app
Keeps getting worse
xsilentxninjax on 5/13/2018
The app constantly freezes up, now I can't cast music to any or my Home devices. You need to fix this or I will be forced to cancel!
Awesome! But,
Aphmau pup on 5/12/2018
I love this app! It’s so great! I really love this app. I just got it today and I fell in love just when I put on my headphones. I really like the free music. 10/10. But I was wondering is we could just listen to one song at a time. But, still I AM IN LOVE!
Google Play has been GREAT
JackieToye on 5/11/2018
Google Play has been my source for storage and new purchase of music for the past 5+ years .. Playlist creations for personal, work and family get togethers
Buggy Mess
Alex Cordova00 on 5/11/2018
Playlists are so buggy. Hard to edit a playlist without accidentally deleting a song.
CarPlay Freezes
Denster2u on 5/10/2018
While I love Google Play Music, I can’t enjoy it on my car. It seems as of the last update, the app shows an error in CarPlay while playing, then the screen freezes and I’m unable to navigate anywhere, as the current song continues to play. Manually shutting down the app on the iPhone works temporarily, then the same thing happens after a few minutes. Please fix this! Thanks.
Consistently crashes
JJ Ram on 5/10/2018
I have the iPhone 8 Plus (2018) and came from the V20. Love Play Music on Android but on iOS this app keeps crashing. I’m sending feedback data to google every time it does (which is multiple times a day). Issue hasn’t been resolved since I’ve had this phone for over 4 weeks now. Please fix and update. Thank you.
Doesn’t work with chromecast anymore
ketamine fart on 5/9/2018
It seems the app isn’t able to cast properly with the latest iOS version 11.3.1. I tried it on my iPad using an older iOS version and chromecast does work.
Cool sorta
Gabby Griffin on 5/9/2018
I’m subscribing supposedly
Love Google Play Music! iOS app needs work
GodlyDongerLord on 5/9/2018
Love the music selection. Now, on my android, the app is amazeballs, but on my iPad it is very laggy. I have the 2017 iPad so my device is by no means slow. Please fix Google. U almost have the perfect music app. Oh and maybe a dark theme? Pls. Thanks for reading.
