So why isn't it being fixed? 1/5
By Sherry Teacher
If the app is so buggy, why isn't it being fixed?
It was working great before... 4/5
After a recent update whenever I play a song I have to put it on a few seconds after the beginning for it to even play! I love google play but it's miserable to have to do this when I want to listen to good music!👎 PLEASE FIX!! I love google play so much!!
Best streaming and cloud storage. 5/5
I've never experienced any issues with this app. Been using it for over a year
Where's my YouTube red 1/5
I've been using this app for 2 years and now suddenly I have no more you tube red and I would love for somebody to help me out
By Lord Toph
Yes this has been such a great app for music, I've had my subscription for couple years now.
Lately issues have been occurring. As of now
It only plays when I have my phone open to it. I can't close my screen or go on a different app because it will stop playing. Meh😩 I'm going to have to unsubscribe soon if this problem does not get fixed. I don't recommend using it unless this stops.
Buggy and too many ads! 1/5
I have been using this app for over a year now. It used to be great. Now it's so buggy I have stopped using it. If you pause the music and then ask it to play again it plays the ad at the same time as the music. Sometimes it just pushes the music and will not start to play it again. You have to close the app completely and start again. Not to mention the amount of ads while listening has gotten totally out of control. It's literally after every single song, if you pause the music, and when you switch stations. Not even worth listen to anymore.
The app is getting worse 1/5
Idk what the gpm team is up to, but little before they were merged with the Youtube music team this app started going downhill.
-An extremely confusing UI that doesn't relate to anything material design.
-ads playing when making calls or listening to music after a pause then play action.
-music suggestions is not up to bar with Spotify music.
It overlaps ads and sometimes won't start back music when a ad is played. Ridiculous.
Not As Reliable As Expected 3/5
Seems like more than half the time I'm playing music the new song takes forever to load. I usually end up swiping to the next song and then back, which seems to do the trick, but that's not really ideal while in the car, ya know?
Ads ruin the ap 1/5
the ads are ruining google's brand equity of this app and will cause me to delete it and look for music elsehwere. they phantom play when the app is open and music is paused as well as play during songs. come on google
This Is Amazing! 5/5
By Creative yay
This app is so cool! You can listen to whatever you want and listen to one artist or genre at a time. Signing in with your google account makes it so easy. I listen to this app everyday and it's very cool how it records what you listen to and play songs for you based on the music you listen to. The only thing I get a bit annoyed about is when an ad plays while the music is playing. Great app! I would definitely recommend this to any music lover!
Should Add the shortcuts from 3D Touch 4/5
Would be awesome if the 3D shortcuts were added :).
Pls fix 2/5
I've been using Google Play for a couple of years now, but lately it's been buggy. If I pause a song or jump ahead to select another song in the play list, the app sticks and the song doesn't play. I have to toggle between pause and play to get the music to start or have to close and re-open the app. It's aggravating, especially if I'm driving. Please fix the bugs. I'm 2 steps off of switching to Spotify.
The best music service 2/5
Why no built in last.fm scrobbling? Come on google
This app is horrible. The interface is sloppy (but that's subjective). Objectively, it barely works. It stops songs randomly, plays ads over the songs, and sometimes it won't work at all. Experiences like this help ensure that I (and other Apple users) will not be switching to Google devices any time soon.
Works great on all my IOS devices
Ads completely break this app 1/5
Ads randomly play during songs and afterward there is an ad break without sound and app says it will resume playing shortly but never resumes. How can this be so poorly implemented, Google?
I want songsa back! 1/5
I hate this app now - it changed over from Songsa. It gets stuck on commercials, I choose a station and it can't play, i love the mixes..... if I could actually listen to them. 🙄
Won't play after pausing music 2/5
I'm a subcsriber and it is frustrating when I pause a song and then I can't get it to play again. Won't play from lock screen or app. Usually have to kill the app or skip to the next song.
Please don't zoom album covers! Only seeing the middle of the album cover on iPhone makes no sense. Why would I just want to see the middle? There is absolutely no reason for that.
the ads are bonkers 1/5
head's up on the newest app update for iphones: the ads are playing overtop the music AND run/play even while the app is not currently playing. awkward when silenced!
please address this issue asap.
thank you from a dedicated daily user.
Fix the darn app! 1/5
I'm a paid subscriber and the app won't stream half the time even when Spotify and Pandora will. It's like you're trying to kill the service.
Love music 5/5
It's pretty awesome
Can't even finish the free trial 2/5
The app is not intuitive and buggy. The service itself is nothing special with limited, obvious playlists and poor recommendations. I would rather go back to the free version of Spotify than the google free trial. The best part by far is YouTube red is included for the price.
Not able to renew 4/5
I loved the fact that I was able to choose any song and now I can't renew my subscription it's like I'm listening to pandora! Please fix
Please updates and fix errors
Used to be great DON'T UPDATE 1/5
I've used google play since the beginning. I love it.
It's basically unusable since the last update. If you do ANYTHING outside the app, it'll restart but several tracks (sometimes up to 30 minutes) before where you were listening. I use it for audio books as well as music and it's frustrating.
What the F am I paying for?! 1/5
Never updates, ALWAYS freezes....Google you should be ashamed of yourselves and this app. Will most likely be cancelling my subscription soon.
I love it 5/5
It's so awesome I hope this app never meesss up thank u google play
I've noticed a huge delay when selecting songs to play. It's taking much longer to play then it has in the past.
Buggy. Stops randomly. Interface illogical 2/5
By Jeff lafleur
Odd I pay so much for so little
By Don mejia
Works good, and it's a great app but after plays ads it goes silent, or it pauses....
Just get Spotify 1/5
After getting my detailed review deleted twice bc of a "taken nickname", I'm leaving this short and sweet. Just stick with Apple Music or get Spotify.
Goodbye iTunes 5/5
Google rules in music app. With Songza and now Spotify along with Google's superior intelligence, it's a no-brainer. Easy to set up, intuitive and quickly learns what I like. Had Apple paid music for over 2 years and still can't figure out what to play for me.
By Jaunt on
The app is very colorful, welcoming and just amazing to look at. But it is confusing. For exaomple: it didn't show the songs in today's top hits or things like that.
Doesn't work half the time 1/5
If you skip a song in a playlist or radio, the app freezes on the next song, not playing it. Don't bother with this app, both Spotify and Apple Music are better.
Eh it'll do 2/5
No way would i pay for this glitchy app. I'm hoping the update makes it less glitchy but I regularly deal with ads playing while I'm streaming music.
Lock screen enhancement 3/5
Overall I love this app. But it would be super cool if you could thumbs up or down on the lock screen.
I like it 5/5
By BELAK KAB
It works fine
Lag between songs 2/5
Lag between songs makes the experience weird
Great app minus the big bug... 4/5
This is a great app to have, especially on an iPad. Big and pleasant UI with the all the features from the Android version (minus an obvious few...). I do enjoy using the app, however, I have found a bug or at least a major flaw. When playing downloaded music and when seeking a particular song, it seems like the app freezes or something. I mean it just completely locks up and refuses to play the song I was looking for. Repeatedly pressing play/pause does nothing. I have to scrub forward about 30 seconds on the song for it to start and then I restart the song to hear it from the beginning. It's awful and makes for an unpleasant experience.
I love it 5/5
By By oziel
Stick with old version 3/5
Skips song when trying to tap a point later in a song
No curated lists 1/5
By Guilherme morais
I like the app, the site too moreover I listening google play for a year now.
This week I starting to listening to Spotify, because of curated lists and omg, why google play music don't hire real people to create lists, I'm getting tired of "fighting " to discovery new music in google play music. Sorry guys.
You're letting me Down 2/5
I am a big fan of google. I use almost all the apps google has available for iPhone in place of apple's apps. But to be honest I'm really starting to hate Play Music. This is the only music subscription I have and I used to take great pride in using it but, for a long time now, there have been some issues that make listening to my favourite songs a real hassle.
1) there is an issue with playback. If I'm listening to music from a playlist and I pause a song, when I press play it won't play. This forces me to either skip the song and go back (which will allow it to play again) or I have to unlock my phone, open the app and press play and pause several timds before it actually starts to play again.
2) Whenever I skip a song, the next song doesn't play. I wouldn't say that this is a streaming issue because this happens to playlists I have downloaded to my phone and/or while I am on WiFi. In the instance in which my phone is not on my person (ex. I am listening to music from a Bluetooth speaker or wireless headphones while working out) this forces me to keep skipping until another song plays.
I love Google and it makes me sad to have one my most used apps fail me like this. Please fix it soon.
FIX THE FREAKIN APP PLEASE 1/5
I think this has gotten worse and worse over the last 6 months. Ads playing while music is going, after an ad it just pauses FOREVER, and then sometimes after a song it will just stop playing- i finally just deleted it because i'm sick of fiddling with it!!! I hope someone fixes it one of these days.
Great APP and Service 4/5
I've been using Google Play Music app prior to switching to IOS and it's been working just fine. HOWEVER.... There is room for improvement, for example, the Album Covers. They need to be shrunk to fit the play screen. There is no point in having some zoomed in cover.! Apart from that minor cosmetic issue, there is quite a bit of delay as far as the playing of music. Ever since the newest IOS updates, the music seems to take its sweet time loading and I'm talking about 30 seconds, sometimes even more. That didn't used to be a problem. I remember that even with the slightest signal, the music would load and play quick. Other than those two things, the last thing I'd like to be addressed is the possibility of a new music arrival notifications based on our music saves and likes.
It's a great app!! 5/5
By Infinite Vital
Everything is great except i would love it if you can make an Apple Watch app. Otherwise. Great experience. 😁
Please fix the app already... 2/5
By Stick to candy crush
I started using Songza about 4 years ago, and was SO sad when it was bought by google. While the app isn't the same now, it still has a great selection of music and creates pretty killer playlists.
WITH THAT SAID, you can't even hear the music because as soon as an ad plays, the app freezes, and you have to shut down the app and restart it over again to keep listening. Often times, if it gets back to the music, ads and music will play over one another. I've totally switched over to using Apple Music in recent weeks and will stay there until the app is fixed.
Better than Spotify
