Great App. Great Improvements. 4/5
G music is amazing. The radio feature of your fav song or album finds you new music that suits you spot on. Love all the updates to the user interface. Loving the new current song area at the bottom that stays constant. Suggestion, please add the feeling lucky dice icon to the top right of the UI near the search icon. It's one of the most important and used features. Make it prominent!
Freezes to Much 2/5
For the most part it's ok, freezes way to much. Get nervous skipping songs because it may not start up again or I'll have to close out and go in again or just deal with certain songs not playing again
It works fine 5/5
Add podcasts now?
New update ruins recents 3/5
The new update is fine functionality wise, the new bar at the bottom for recents and library are great, but removing play buttons from each album in recents makes it inconvenient to play an album
Love the new navigation feature. Thanks google!
Updated design is awesome! 5/5
By MIDI Man
LOVE the new design. Finally I have quick access to MY stuff. That was my biggest complaint with the old version. Brilliant work. Thanks Google!
Yes! Navigation bar!!! 5/5
Thank you, so inconvenient not having one. Excellent UX choice
Good free service, horrendous interface 4/5
It's great to have all your music readily accessible online (for free!). What I can't stand is the interface. Should be cleaner.
Best music app 5/5
By Bah bahahaha
Update is great
My go to music app 5/5
I love it. The music selection is fantastic, the channels are good when I'm indecisive. The menu bar, YES! Been waiting for that for awhile and LOVE that it's here finally!
Your own uploaded music doesn't appear in the recently played list
Songs take a long time to play now since latest update on 2/27/17. Sometimes notification center controls don't even work.
Where are the greats 5/5
I pay $10 a month and you seem to forget the greatest bands of today and years prior. Beatles nothing, Led Zeppelin nothing, ACDC nothing, Black keys only older stuff and "hits". Like come on how can you leave the two most influential bands ever like that's ridiculous I didn't pay $10 for iggy azalea some people actually like real music so maybe you should invest in some bands that changed music forever. The Beatles should've been the first thing there. I AM PAYING $10 GET THE BANDS THAT CHANGED MUSIC COME ONE GOOGLE!!!!!!
Finally a Navigation Bar!!! 4/5
Oh thx god you guys finally did I really was about to change a music service because it was so complicated to navigate from place to place on the app but thx to this update I'm considering it now😉
Love the app and like the new update. 5/5
By Up GraVity
This is my first review of the app. Let me start off by saying, if you are thinking about either Spotify or this. Play Music is a much better option. You can upload up to 50,000 of your own songs too, plus it comes with YT Red. All with a $10 a month price tag. If you are looking to use this app. I strongly advise you pay for it, the free version does lack a bit.
Now to more current events, nice update Google. Like the new navigation feature, much nicer having it at the bottom than having to keep going through a slide out.
Love it!!!! 5/5
It has background playing like YouTube red
Complete junk 1/5
Complete junk can't play back uploaded music.
The UI in this update is cleaner but not as intuitive. I liked the full screen album art with pause and next track controls. Gone. Why? Now I have to swipe a tiny section of the screen to scroll through. Or lock my phone and skip from there. Please alter that UI.
I LOVE IT 5/5
AMAZING!! IT LOOKS GORGEOUS!! I was deciding about switching to Spotify but this update has me hooked for longer now. :0)
I fw it 4/5
I love this app
All I want to do is reactivate my account! It's terrible I cancelled it to save some money and now I want to reactivate it but there's literally no way to reactivate it. When I tried to get ahold of someone to help me no one is able to. I like the app but geez it's like they don't want anyone to use it.
Add alarm 5/5
Great app. Love the new navigation. Please Please add alarm to wake up to my favorite music.
The best gets better 5/5
This new menu bar is a game changer and solves the only complaint I had with the application. Wonderful music experience.
THANK YOU! 5/5
The persistent nav bar in the latest update solves the biggest problem I've had with this app. Swiping over and going through several pages to get to my playlist or stations every time I get in my car was super aggravating. Now it's perfect! 🙌
No Podcasts 2/5
My music app since beta 5/5
Love google music. Seamless phone to desktop listening. Also love the ability to upload all my music.
The new app updates make it much better, with a menu bar at the bottom.
Loving the new update. 5/5
The new update completely changes the way goggle play looks! They put a focus of your music first and made it more accessible and easier to find your music. That I like! 👍 Everything is there as usual and works fine. Love the new update very quick to access your music.
Quicker and looks better with the new layout. 👌🏻👌🏻
No lyrics to a song 2/5
I can not find lyrics to a song to sing along with it. It really annoys me, and confuses me how the lyrics can come up on google and not on the app. But otherwise, I like it.
Please show me the full album cover instead of a zoomed view, and it still has the tendency to skip around songs when I'm playing through USB.
Best Music App by far 5/5
By sentinel greg
I already loved the ability to store my own collection, the curated playlists, etc. But this most recent update completely changed the navigation which was my only gripe. It makes my library much easier to access! Thanks google!
The new UI looks nice but the settings for streaming quality is bugging out for me now.
Playback BUGGY 1/5
it takes 3 seconds or more (after preloading) to actually starts playing the song VERY ANNOYING and not fixed since last two versions.
Please fix ASAP
Love the new permanent navigation bar!!! 5/5
This is so much better than apple's music app. I hate dealing with iTunes so much! Very happy I found this app.
The best 5/5
I love this music player, it generates the perfect collection of music and the ads are tolerable, not every 10 seconds like other apps.
By Thee Billy
Great selection but too much animations and needs to be more organized and simple.
The best app
When the music stops... 3/5
By The guy nobody cares about
I listen to music in my car than randomly it force closes on my iphone4. Why?
By Shaina eve
Love this app . Always knows what I like 😊😘
Very large at this point 3/5
Music plays some tracks skips over others. It plays the cached music just fine but other music is a hit or miss. This app needs an update like yesterday.
Suddenly POS 1/5
Doesn't play songs. When I press play, skips through songs without playing them and then just sits still through a track without playing it. Play button can be pressed without effect, pause button can be pressed without effect (they toggle). Do not get. Do not subscribe until reviews confirm fixes.
Works great. 4/5
By Late no more also
Easy to use. Works as stated but some drop outs
Love it 4/5
By $ M3G $
I love this app. I ditched apple music for this... but lately it has had this glitch where when i play a radio station with my phone locked, it doesn't show what song is playing on the lock screen. Its really frustrating when i don't know what song is playing. There is also another glitch for when it does show up on the lock screen, it says the song is at 0 seconds when it could be in the middle of a song. It also sometimes just stops playing the music for no reason.
Fantastic App 5/5
By Maddie Vulcano
Love this app, only music app I use/need. Works fantastically on apple and androids alike. 5/5
I've been paying for this app and then I updated and all of a sudden all my music is gone and all I can do is stream the radio! Boo! Fix it.
By I'm Going Back to Pandora
Thumbs downed songs still played a lot
Love it😍😍 the only thing that bugs me is when they pass commercials or ads when I play lullabies for my babies to sleep and when I can't just play the songs I liked but it will play your songs randomly other than that I play this all day!
Great Selection, Recommendations Getting Better 4/5
By J. Ozuna
Have loved Play Music so far. I can really tell the integration with Songza, which used to be my favorite streaming service. Really great recommendations, getting better all the time. The inclusion of YouTube Red is a HUGE bonus.
google music 5/5
you have more selection and i seem to have better connection with google music. love it!
In the search function when I try and look up a song, the song is never searched for, only play lists with music like that song. It's stupid, I don't want songs like that, I want that song that's what I searched for. It's just stupid
Okay app 3/5
By Eddie W
Plays music fine but doesn't support the dual screen on iPad yet for some reason. Also, still no volume leveling like with Apple Music. Would be much better with these added.
