    So much misinformation in the 4-5 star reviews stating that it's ad free and you can listen to music with your screen off. This is FALSE, UNLESS you have and pay for youtube RED. The fact that I can't at least lock my phone and still have the music play bothers me to no end. I don't care about the ads, let them play via audio, but if you want me to use your app dedicated to listening to music, let me lock my phone amd continue listening... Wish google would be more transparent with their thought process behind this. Full Review

    Could you also make an app for music that will not play video so people could listen to music without using large amount of data. You could give people choice in settings music with video or music without video. Full Review

    Their advertising and multiple featured reviews are misleading. Background playing is only available if you're a subscriber to YouTube Red. Full Review

    It really sucks that you have to pay just for background play. This is why I didn't agree to any of the offers that were sent from the actual YouTube app. Full Review

    Possibly the best music app you can purchase. Basically any song imaginable will be on. Would like to see Android auto support (disable video while in this mode) and would like to see smarter radio playback in the future. If Android auto doesn't work, give me an option to have only the player controls visible with thumbs up and down. It can sometimes become repetitive and require and radio station refresh to start a new playlist. Full Review

    My original intention in getting this app is so I can listen to some songs offline because they're unavailable on other platforms such as spotify etc. But you can't even make your own playlists on here. The offline mixtape is all completely random and puts songs based off your history. So I tried to get the songs I like by intentionally liking them and rewatching over and over. But instead I got a bunch of songs I've never heard of. Super frustrating to deal with. Full Review

    It's a good app, but for me I can only listen to the song(s) when the phone is on, I don't want a trial because if you Fogel to cancel, you're being paid, I used to be able to turn my phone off & still be able to listen. Not anymore. Full Review

    Stops mid song on most songs. Like it's having trouble loading. Doesn't matter if I'm using Data plan or connected to WiFi. I keep having to hit Play or Retry. Regular YouTube has no problems. Only this app. On free trial at the moment, but not going to pay for anything if this is what I'll be getting. 5/29/ update. Songs still stopping mid song, sometimes twice a song. Will not continue to the next song. Come on Google/ have potential to be the best. I love picking songs at random (unlike other music apps). Please fix this! Right now your best feature is the offline mix...and I have an ipod that can hold more songs. Full Review

    I was using this with YouTube red for a while. But it sucks at finding new music in the playlists like the genre stains like stations. I just keeps playing prior songs I listened to, liked, or disliked. And now recently it has been having problems playing a lot of songs, keeps giving playback errors. Full Review

    OK so my only problem is that everytime my phone turns off...the music stops!!! It is simply annoying and a waste of my battery!!😬😡If this is not fixed in a month or so then I'm gonna have to delete this app and find kne that does suit ALL of my requirements!! Please get this fixed ASAP!!! Once that is fixed I'll be fine and other from that....this is one of, if not, my favorite music apps!! Great songs that are picked out for other words they are good at finding music that pleases me and makes me want to break out dancing😂😊 Full Review

    I like the app but there is a few things that could be fixed or added. Maybe one of the things could be actually looking at some descriptions of the videos instead of seeing only the name and song. Also it would be nice to see the channel of the artists/people who post the video like you do on YouTube instead of the way you view it now and let us comment on the video. And now video's I never liked are in my like playlist. Full Review

    This app is a badass. It makes you pay for every shit song you have ever searched by forcing you to listen almost exclusively to them and songs like them. It puts you in a shuffleless earlock of despair and turns what might have been a bomb ass summer mixtape into a death march of crap music. If you have ever listened to a bad song on YouTube, do not download. Full Review

    I have loved YouTube Music since it started. The last update changed the layout that I wad used to but the main issue is that since the update the videos do not crop to fit the screen on my Samsung S8 as it did previously. Also My Station doesn't mix well. Please correct and I'll happily change to 5 stars, thank you. Full Review

    No ability to use Chromecast Audio with it, as far as I can tell. A waste of both money and space. EDIT: Chromecast Audio now supported! Literally the one thing I needed. This, along with the proper audio controls (to use with third party audio control widgets), makes it a 5/5 Full Review

    One issue im having with this app is the repetitive music glitch. For example, song 1 is A, song 2 is B, song 3 is C, song 4 is D, song 5 is A, and song 6 is E. The songs 1 through 4 will continuously repeat, song 5 will not play, and i will never get to song 6. Now i could just skip to song 6 right? Wrong. Most of the time the list repeats A,B,C,D,E,A,B,C,D,E,etc. I can only view 4 songs ahead and if those songs have already played then i end up listening to the same 20 or so songs over and over. This glitch also happens with the regular youtube app. I am using an LG G4. Full Review

    When I look at an artist channel I want to be able to see their saved playlists also & not just their album's. I want both & not have to save playlists on YouTube to use them in YouTube Music. You should also have all their songs the artist created, it does not have all their music I have to create custom playlist for those songs. I'd like to see to be able to rearrange the order of saved playlist. For example recent liked playlists, alphabetical order and most especially by artist. I don't want have to use both YouTube apps for music. I might stick to YouTube for music. Full Review

    Waste of space on any device... nothing more than another app just for music and nothing else, all the same songs and videos that you can find on the regular youtube app. only thing they really added was the ability to create a playlist and stations. if thats all people wanted then theyd stick with pandora or somethin along those lines.

    The UI and functionality has gonna better, yet there is no playlist support still, playlist support exists o ly if you go to YouTube and like a playlist. Needing 2 apps seems a sad way to support a feature. Constant Bluetooth issues ranging from audio stopping on the BT device every time a some changes to meta tags stopping every time a song changes. Still no widget support. Full Review

    It has potential to be loads better than Spotify from sheer variety however it's missing a lot of very basic and easy to implement features. The foremost being a loop song button. Also a queue system would be great for listening to a variety of songs that aren't in either your or YouTube's playlist. Shuffle wouldn't hurt either. It's very hard to justify paying 12$ per month when basic features like this are lacking but I still try to keep it going. Full Review

    This app sucks for music. It gets interrupted by everything and there is no way to change that. you switch to another app and it stops playing. I hate it because it would play my favorite music but get interrupted by EVERYTHING. You cant do anything while it's playing. Full Review

    Much harder to access offline playlist with UI update. I have yet to figure out how after the sandwich menu button was removed and the nav buttons were moved to the bottom. Offline playlist was enabled but it wasn't available on the home screen at all. That's one of the two reasons I used this otherwise useless app. The other being that it can cast to my Google home which the regular YouTube app cannot do for what seems to be arbitrary reasons to encourage people to install this app. Full Review

    You absolutely have the best, I mean the best music selection on play store. I used your karoake songs to put a show on for 70 senior citizens on Friday. Absolutely a success. Advice, some songs show lyics with the artist singing also. A bit confused, but I found other songs to use. Maybe you can fix that issue. Ty Full Review

    Suggests too much based on liked songs without considering dislikes. I like one DnB/Rock song and dislike ten, and it's still showing me like, a third DnB. It also does not have a way to correct its automatic classifications. A lot of remixes and reuploads are being marked as the original and people aren't getting proper credit. Full Review
