Great Music 5/5
By Lita rose
The music that it gives is good and it also depends on your like. They also have music from many different languages.
I like it 4/5
I really like Google play music, having cloud storage for music is awesome, it's just a bit buggy for me compared to apps like Spotify
It just takes a while to first open, and when I close it, it keeps on playing until I pause it, which doesn't work until a while after
I'll keep using it, but hopefully some of the kinks get worked out
Randomly freezes 2/5
Music doesn't play continually, randomly freezes. Also 10 - 30 sec gaps between songs. Otherwise it's the best work around coming from android.
Needs Apple Watch support 3/5
When it uploads songs off my computer, it does it out of order in the, so one artist is mixed in with another in the last added folder. Also, there's no Apple Watch support.
Love the app🤤 it works good!
Great service but the app needs work 3/5
Shuffling not great, repetitious. I love accessing my library but network issues are frequent.
This app is now sooooo slow. We have the paid version and it is still slow. It has an extremely long pause between songs and freezes all the time. Google is usually great for things but their music app is sad. Please fix this.
Dead Air 1/5
The app takes about 10-30 seconds before it starts playing music when it first launches or when I skip a song or change to a different play list. When the dead air finally ends and the music starts it's usually a few seconds into the song. It's extremely annoying.
Switch to Spotify 2/5
For the past 6 months I've had playback issues. I skip songs, and even if it's to a song that is cached, it WON'T PLAY. I have to skip forward and/or backward, then back to the song I'm trying to play, and it sometimes will start immediately, and sometimes won't. I'm currently in silence writing this review because I have to open the blasted app and force it to play the music that it should be taking care of on it's own. PLEASE FIX.
Why is not possible to change the playlist name? The only way to change it is only if you go to the website from your PC. Unbelievable.
No Apple Watch app 2/5
App is ok. Navigation is little odd but serviceable. It really needs a way to control playback from the Apple Watch. Pandora is free and even they have Apple Watch app. I'd cancel the service if it wasn't for the fact that YouTube Red is included.
It won't even play music. 1/5
By Drew Buffkin
As big as Google is, I'm surprised at how terrible this app functions. 90% of the time it says it can't play music at this time, and when it does work the ads play over the music and then altogether stops playing any music at all. Disappointing.
Im giving it 5 starts BUT !!!! 5/5
It needs to stop shutting off in middle of song or after a commercial and then I have to start over again. Other than that baby's glitch it's a great music don't ask to pay for future uses and it has everything you need for music and goes well with my google home :)
FIX THE BUGS 1/5
AFTER THAT I WILL RERATE IT
downloaded songs are gone... 3/5
By want my songs back
i dont know why. but, the songs downloaded to hear offline are sometimes vanished. it's really bugging me.
Update is terrible 1/5
By The Tophs
Doesn't play music properly anymore.
Please fix the playlist delete glitch 4/5
I love your service and don't plan on switching to any other platform anytime soon but I cannot give you more than a four star rating when anytime I try and delete a track from a playlist it deletes a different track three spaces up. It's very very frustrating.
Ads still freeze the app 3/5
By Lily needsyoutoupdate
Good app overall...too many ads recently that cut in after each song making it painful to enjoy music. It would be great if you fixed the bug since ads are freezing/locking up the app and then it requires manual intervention to force close and restart.
Why no Apple TV version? 3/5
I like the app but I hope you release a version that works with Apple TV!
Great! Much better than others but.... 5/5
By Stacie Medina
Ever since i downloaded this app i thought it was going to be fast and play other songs. It did and its much better than pandora because pandora just plays the same things over and over again. But it keeps lagging and im getting annoyed.
Won't download playlist 1/5
I created a playlist of my own music, 388 songs. I went back into app 3 days after and noticed only about 20% of the songs downloaded. This also occurs on my iPad with Google Play Music.
The app itself is great for non downloads. Streaming I have had no issues. I've also backed up over 3,000 songs where Apple charges $25 yearly for iTunes Match, which I also pay for. Downloading music from iTunes and my playlists is flawless. My reason for 3 stars is the download for offline listening needs to be fixed. My internet speed at home is 50 MBPS, no other connected devices have issues with movies or streaming.
***Update*** Still having above issue of songs never downloading to devices. New issue as others are reporting, over 10 second delay of music starting, or playing next song after a song ends. I have a work Android phone and songs download very fast and entire playlists. Hopefully iOS version is fixed at some point.
So far so good. 4/5
Using it for family. Takes a little getting used to the app navigation.
Really liking the cross platform ease 5/5
Polished app and deep artist roster
Love this App, Wish it has Last.fm support! 5/5
Love this App, Wish it has Last.fm support!
Love it 5/5
UI is super clean and functional. Recommendations are extremely good – it knows my tastes way better than Spotify ever did. Plus your sub removes YouTube ads. 💥
Downloaded Music doesnt start 3/5
App needs improvement , it should. E more simple to use , it has a lot of music but the app its not the best , some of my downloaded music for offline usage dont start automatically , you would have to foward the song a litle bit , i decided to give it a try over spotify other than that it works.
Duplicate songs 3/5
I recently switched from Android to iPhone and this version of the app doesn't alert you when you add duplicate songs to a playlist, which I find really annoying tbh.
I love itt 😘
I like it 5/5
By jonah bliss
I like it
Good selection horrible bugs that need to be fixed 1/5
By Tyler McD
I have a gigabit connection and this app takes 5-10 seconds to load each song. Most of the time it won't even load. If you skip a song while it's frozen, the previous song will play. I'll stick with Spotify
Needs work, buggy 2/5
I've been using this over the Apple Music player because I can upload all my music for free and stream instead of take up space on my phone. That service is great but the app is just ok.
The main issue is it's buggy. I'll have a huge playlist that I am playing in sequence and it will decide to hop back to the beginning frequently. Plus frequent music stopping and will have to flip back and forth to get to play. Many problems occur with skipping or down voting a song.
Recommended interface changes:
-ability to hide down voted songs from ever playing.
- ability to share music within family share
- option to not stretch album art and instead show whole album art
- show album name when playing
- auto generate playlists
- detect duplicate songs in playlist and give option to add or not
Wont let me download music, it keeps freezing before it finishes.
Service is Great, App is Terrible 2/5
I love the service. 50,000 songs can be uploaded from my personal library (I have a lot of music) completely free. The problem is that even though the music is there it can take 10-30 seconds for a song to start, if it even does, and then it might freeze in the middle. More than once I have had to force quit the app and try again but then the app itself takes about 5 seconds to open. It's weirdly delayed. There isn't any way to edit the music tags in the app. You have to go online to manage your library.
Very poor effort 2/5
By JD from down south
They need to make all the new music on Friday accessible in a playlist like Spotify does.
They need to quit cropping album covers. It's not artistic to show only half of what the original artist intended you to see. Chromecast casting crops it even more.
A fresh discover weekly playlist would be great. Again, like Spotify.
In fact, it's very hard to justify using this app instead of Spotify except for that I'm on the $7.99 per month deal so it's a bit cheaper for me.
It FUN 5/5
By happy aco
It a good app good music you should download it went are you weedy for download it .😊😊😊
Great music app 5/5
Love it! 5/5
Better and better each update!
Support for Android Wear! 4/5
Music downloaded from the app must be able to be downloaded/synced on the Android wear just like an android phone!
Random glitches 2/5
I love Google Play Music. But when customizing my playlist it randomly works and then some days doesn't. When I delete a song off my list it deletes the one or even two songs above the one I'm trying to remove. Some days it works. But most days I delete songs because of this error and have to re-add the songs which is annoying. And I cannot move the songs up and down like it used too. Please fix
Still Amazing!!! 5/5
I've always been an android user and I'm used to google's ecosystem. But I switched over to iPhone and I love the fact that I still have all of my music is still here on the beauty of iOS !
Love my unlimited 5/5
I have an iPhone and still opt to use Google Play. My playlists are the best. I don't think I can live without it!
Playback issues 2/5
The app will have playback issues. Songs will randomly stop playing. When I resume to the app, an advertisement will play on top of my music. Please fix this.
Great music service, terrible app 1/5
This app used to work well but lately has been awful. It frequently stops playing for no reason. Also if I forget to close out of it fully at night, it will randomly start playing ads (even if no music has been playing for hours!!) Not cool when it's 3am and I'm sleeping and an ad for some podcast comes on, wakes me up and scares the crap out of me. Not cool at all. This app was fantastic back when it was Songza. Please fix.
Pause after skipping songs 1/5
It's really annoying. No rhyme or reason as to when it happens. Happens to downloaded songs too. After I skip a song it just remains stuck. Pressing play does nothing. Going forward one song and back again usually fixes it. This works for my car but I can't do it when I'm on my jaybirds. I end up having to use the app and manually drag the progress bar past zero which fixes the freeze.
This is ridiculous google, especially for an app I pay a monthly charge for. Get your house in order.
Missing a feature 4/5
I love google play and have been using it for a long time. However, when I switched from having an android phone to the iPhone,I no longer see the option "identify what's playing" when you click on the search bar... in not sure if it's something the app on the iPhone can't do...but I don't want to have to download Shazam just to look up what's playing.... please put it back
Does the job, just insanely buggy 2/5
The service is great, used this on my LG G4, religiously. I have about 40K songs in my google library and a lot of which I can't access on Apple Music. The bummer is, the app is very unstable. I've had it crash on me a few times, other times the song takes up to 10 seconds to start. Changing a song takes forever and sometimes it doesn't even change. Even downloading a playlist/album doesn't help this. Needs work ASAP.
Commercials play even when app is off 1/5
Recently I noticed that my phone plays commercials from google play app even when the app is off, last night it woke me app bc it was so loud and I had to delete the app.
Excelente en todo 5/5
Toda TODA mi música y lo demás en donde quiera, no requiere de amplia banda ni hay restricción geográfica no de número de canciones. EXCELENTE.
Handy app! 4/5
Good for special occasions, for finding a unique playlist to fit a unique situation -- like cooking, old style cocktail party, a variety of mood setting sounds, and playlists based on what you love. I hate the icon, however.
