Unusable offline
Beverly Hilskop on 2020-10-27
I used to be angry at the Google Play Music app’s bugginess and lagginess and frequent crashes, but I would do anything to go back. Why? Because in that app, you could access all of your music, including uploads, organized by artist when offline, simply by switching on a “downloads only” toggle. Now when you’re offline it’s just a list of albums—no way to search!—and your options are to find the album you want (no, can’t shuffle everything by a particular artist) or to shuffle all of your downloaded songs. That’s it. Why in the world would they punish people who choose to download their music? Not to mention that the lag between songs when shuffling is horrendous; I think the app has severe trouble with large downloaded libraries. Also: the catalogue has been reduced in the transition from Google Play Music to YouTube Music—there is only one Chromatics album available, for example (and the rest of the Italians Do It Better label is also sorely lacking); the full catalogue used to be available. What the hell. Fix this unusable garbage, which is an embarrassment for a paid service.

Rating: 2.5 stars. Great look and feel. Unlike almost every other major streaming music service provider (except Spotify), YouTube Music allows users to access and update saved albums and playlists even when the premium subscription is inactive. Unlike Spotify, YouTube Music plays those saved albums and playlists in order instead of shuffling the tracks. Advantage: YouTube Music. The YouTube Music app has to be open to play music without a premium subscription, though. Advantage: Spotify. My biggest issue with the YouTube and YouTube Music service combination is that one’s listening history populates their YouTube watch history in the Apple TV app. This does not happen in the YouTube phone app, however. Users should be able to (1) add individual tracks from albums (instead of the current “all or none” approach to adding albums), (2) report bad tracks from within the app, and (3) adjust their sound preferences via EQ. Competitors offer these options.
Forced to Migrate from GooglePlay Music
kzfan on 2020-10-27
I was forced to migrate to YouTube Music when GooglePlay Music was discontinued. The first hint of a problem was when YouTube Music Premium free trial began without me agreeing. This occurred when I transferred my entire GPM library per the email instructions to YTM. There was no option to start the trial at a later date. This app has rendered my multiple Google Home devices useless and this includes the Bose 700 Soundbar and bass unit. Even during the free trial the app would either not recognize the device or Google Home would respond that either the function was not available or that it failed to understand the voice command! I am lost that Google has forced Google Home users to what in every respect seems a useless “beta” application. My music library is inaccessible via voice commands. I won’t be paying $9.99 a month and will step back to streaming from my iPhone to a simple Bluetooth speaker.
Key features of a music app dont work
MustachedNinja on 2020-10-27
So lets say you listened to some music and liked some songs (added to liked playlist). Now you found a song of a completely new genre, and decided to “start radio” using the new genre. Well within 3-5 songs the radio will start playing songs from your liked playlist and switch back to the style of music you previously liked. I started a radio on “The Hu” (mongolian folk metal) but since i had liked some Glenn Miller (1920s swing) within 3 songs I was listening to “In the mood”. Also whenever you start a radio off of a song, the songs that are selected next are almost always the same, theres never any variety. With Google Play Music I was able to discover new bands and whatnot, but with Youtube Music, i end up listening to the same 50 songs over and over because it never recommends me anything new.
A complete con: I’ve had it two seconds and I already hate it
acdc 3po on 2020-10-27
I went to my Google play app to play some music before bed and was told that the app was being discontinued. It told me to save my music library to switch over to YouTube Music. I did, I enrolled me in YouTube premium which I absolutely do not want. It tells me I am on a free trial which I 100% did not consent to. What makes me mad is that I might actually have to pay for the service that I don’t want just stop myself from losing the music I acquired with the Google play app. Why? I hate YouTube music I want google play back it is disgusting that Google can just cancel an app and force you into a membership you don’t want. And what really makes me mad is that there is no customer service email or phone number I can call. Please stop reading this app positively it’s a scam.
On and off

When I switched over from google play music I thought it would mostly be the same. I’m a runner and stick my phone in my pocket, so I turn off my phone and the music would continue playing. But is it that now if I turn off my phone the music doesn’t continue? It’s very frustrating because while I’m also trying to use other apps and listen to music it doesn’t work. And I don’t want to pay for that when I used to get it for free. And another thing, when I would click on an album it would also include songs similar to the ones in the album. Now it’s all one artist and no variety and it’s very irritating. Others might find this normal but I’m not clicking with this music platform.
I will like it if....
IzzVicious on 2020-10-27
I will happily like this forced change if we were given the option, like google music, to sort or uploaded songs. There’s no option for that. Also it would be nice if when we make uploads they were added to a generated recently added playlist like google music had. If I had those two things I would have no problem at all with being forced to move to YouTube music. But as it stands. When I go to my uploads and to songs if does it in the regular a-z order instead of giving option of like newest, or whatever. And that fact that once I upload my new songs I have to search for them, instead of being able to click a recently added playlist and them all be there
Desperately needs equalizer settings
Test ees on 2020-10-27
I have to admit that this app is an improvement over the Google music app that is going away. However, I will absolutely never even consider paying for premium service unless there is an equalizer option that is easily accessible from the now playing screen. I actually ditched Spotify premium because their equalizer was buried like 6 menus deep. Equalizer settings really help make your Bluetooth headphones pop, and need to be adjusted depending on what genre of music you’re listening to. I found myself barely using my YouTube music premium free trial because it didn’t sound as good as my other service with equalizer.

Not a fan. Just wanna listen to MY library of music but every time I open this app u force me to answer if I want to pay 12.99 for premium. I don’t want to stream music, I just wanna listen to my own. Paying for music to stream is not what I personally want. I love the music from the play store app because it was simple to listen offline. This is getting to the point to where you are forcing me to buy something I don’t want. If there was a better way to listen to my own library I would because HELL will freeze over a trillion times before I pay 12.99 to listen to music I already have, THANKS BUT...NO THANKS
Needs a lot of work
LunarCrusader on 2020-10-27
Google Play Music had its fair issue but it worked wonderfully. No lag when scrolling through your music, songs resume where they were stopped when connecting via Bluetooth, repeat and shuffle settings are remembered. YouTube Music on the other hand is the opposite and also makes it a pain to look at my playlist or albums. These should be the default UI when going into the app, and the shuffle/repeat button shouldn’t be hidden and left out by default. I’ve paid for Google play music subscription but am debating on canceling the service and going to a different music player if things aren’t sorted soon.
