Overall I think Google music is one of the best and now it is integrated to Apple car play
Car play has issues with the menu tabs 1/5
I have a Chevy Malibu and I like the app for car play but the menus do not show up right with the tabs please fix
Getting worse 1/5
Carplay app is broken. There are some visually errors in the app. I can't choose individual songs or shuffle my music so what is the point of having a CarPlay app in the first place?
Doesn't auto play after a call.... too simple to now be a feature. 4/5
After making or receiving calls it pauses but doesn't start playback unless you manually do it.
Great collection, messy interface 3/5
By Cyd S
The collection of music is really good. The curated playlists alone are worth the money. The interface however, is a hot mess. There's no history of anything you've played. No way to go back to an earlier playlist from a radio, it adds an entire album when you add a single sing to the queue. The download option is ridiculous. You cannot download a track!! The only option available is to download an entire album... Not user friendly at all. Avoid until the interface is fixed.
Yay! CarPlay support!!! 5/5
I opened the app in my car today to find CARPLAY SUPPORT!!! Finally! Thanks, Google!
Needs Work 3/5
Ain't bad overall, but definitely missing features that other music services provide. It's very buggy as well
Works great for me 5/5
Best music app and playlist. Two things missing first is sound check as going from one song to next can vary widely and blow ears out and second a duplicate checker cleanup for playlist.
I love this app! 4/5
By Wen 🌈
I love that you can edit a song's info and that I can transfer songs from my desktop to this app. Thanks Google. 💗
5 stars Developers please don't change 5/5
People's complaints sound ridiculously exaggerated. The format is great and this app does allow you to make playlist of songs. There are download and queue options. When listening to radio you can skip backwards and forwards. DEVELOPERS GREAT JOB PLEASE DON'tT change. Bug fixes maybe but no Changes THANKS!!!!
I enjoy it awesome!
It seems like it has great potential but if you try to skip through more than like 2/3 songs it locks down and won't play. Needs to be fixed especially for a paid music subscription.
Idk why people don't like this app 5/5
Loving google music so far. This app makes great use of it as well.
Well it is 4/5
By Michael Shore's Account
Got to say all and all it's a bit bloopy
But I have to give it 4 out of 5 drops for my drip droops
Works for me 5/5
Even though I'm not really liking the new update to google play, I still love the app itself. I pay for YouTube red, so I can listen to and save any music I like on all of my devices.
Excellent App 5/5
Excellent app and service made even better with the addition of CarPlay. Thanks Google!
What happened? 1/5
Well the app seems to no longer work properly, I can deal with most bugs but this one bothers me like no other. So when playing songs offline there seems to be a issue with viewing the album art while offline, it shows up just with a gray background but when I kick on the wifi the art comes back, even tried restoring my iPod and bam its the same issues all over again. Must be the app, also the files are playing are all offline. Google get to together.
Simply Awesome!!! 5/5
Landscape mode PLEASE!! 4/5
I'm liking the latest updates, specially the integration with the iPhone music widget (now I don't have to open this app to listen to my music, I just have to open the music widget and hit play and voila!)
One thing that I've been waiting this app to have is landscape mode, I use my phone with a magnetic vent holder and is kinda difficult to control this app while driving because everything is sideways. I hope this will come soon in future updates, thank!!
Guys, you should have mentioned CarPlay support! 5/5
There's Carplay support!!!
Simple, but not easy 3/5
By Dabo Saban
Here's what I mean by this. The app is simple because it allows you to keep your same music and playlists on one service that can be opened on numerous devices. What you upload on your laptop, you can easily play moments later on your cell phone or tablet.
However, the fact that you cannot rearrange songs within a specific playlist, the rating I have to give this is 3 stars. I love that you can stream music on here and you can download playlists so you can play music on the subway without requiring data; but because I don't have the option to rearrange the songs in a playlist it brings it down.
Finally Carplay support! 4/5
Finally Google has added Carplay support! It's a bit buggy though. Some UI elements aren't displaying correctly across the top but I'm sure they'll fix it over time.
It may be a staged rollout however so don't shoot the messenger.
I mainly use this to play my downloaded files while I'm offline. This version and the last will pause a few seconds in to a song and the new version seems to skip to the next song randomly. Pressing the power button to turn off the screen also seems to pause the song. I hope this gets fixed soon. This app has been reasonably good for a while but it's unusable for me now.
All my music is not working. 1/5
My personal MP3s stopped working. Do not use. Not reliable.
Everything I want 5/5
It does what I want and gives me youtube red for free. Uploading my own music gave me some issue with album art vanishing but meh
New update 2/5
Ever since the new update it skips songs and says cannot play at this moment.
This is apparently the only version of this app across any platform that doesn't support podcasts. 1/5
By kris hhhh
This is apparently the only version of this app across any platform that doesn't support podcasts.
Fantastic sound quality but buggy 4/5
The output on the high quality setting is simply unparalleled and soars above that of Apple Music. Only advantage of apple music is a better library, but the ability to upload your entire library to google as an included feature along with YouTube red for unlimited customers makes Google Play Music one of the most compelling options out there, but it also makes integration with iOS an absolute must! This version is simply not ready for primetime. Full of bugs... Delayed awaiting of tracks, multiple hangups when shifting through several tracks, just poorly responsive. Does not feel as light on iOS as it does on android, and that will sadly hamper its potential.
7/19/17 latest update shows more promise. I've already replaced the default apple music with Google play music on my dock as the sound quality is so much better, and now the app feels much more responsive! Thanks to the dev team
You can't even edit playlist name... bug fixes? Nothing has been fixed playback still awful.. Artwork??? It's zoom too much. Worst google app ever.
Smartest streaming service out there. 4/5
Looks great and works well. Would like more sorting options and better search results (only search my library).
Add an EQ! 3/5
The sound quality is garbage compared to Spotify because Spotify has a built in EQ. Used google music for a long time when I had android, but immediately switched to Spotify once I got iPhone
By Private Aviator
As stated by so many others, the app plays a few seconds of music and then pauses.
Also it occasionally randomly skips to he next song.
Love it 5/5
Love that it suggests other albums for me to listen to.
Ofrezcan variedad 5/5
Van mejorando. Deberían hacer promoción como regalar un mes después de varios meses de estar suscrito, casi cumplo el año!
Great, but somehow outshined by android version 4/5
By Just another iSheep
Aside from some minor interface changes, this app streams music just as well as its counterpart on android. I can't complain much, although my personally uploaded music does not play back gapless like it does on android (even on a cheap 75 dollar phone). In fact, the pause between songs is pretty long. Takes you out of the zone during a mix.
Poor performance and experience 1/5
Very glitchy and not responsive. Responds poorly to touch input resulting in input errors. Poor scrolling and playback performance. Does not cache previously loaded thumbnails as expected. Takes a long time to get home screen into a ready state.
Great app 5/5
Great app. Prefer it over other streaming services for combination with YouTube Red.
It's Great! But... 5/5
This Is an awesome app but, Sometimes I can't play music on other apps. D:
Those two girl very good!
latest update made this app extremely sluggish 3/5
I've used and loved google play music for over a year. It used to run very smooth on my ipad 3rd gen, but after the latest update it's extremely slow and glitchy. Here are some things I've noticed since the last update.
- it takes a few seconds before you can scroll up and down after changing screens, as if the app has frozen
- songs occasionally jump to next track partway through a song
- album arwork takes exceptionally long to load in, if it ever does
- artwork sometimes shows wrong picture for an album, showing artwork for other songs in the queue
- attempting to play a song sometimes continues to play the currently playing song, yet the artwork and song name updates to the song you tried to play
I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled to see if it would fix the issues, but alas.
It's so frustrating because Google Play music has the best selection of all the music streaming services I've tried. It used to have the best app as well, but this one is barely usable now.
2 stars for the worst music app 2/5
By carl pangilinan
Yeah I admit that I worked for Google and receiving a lot of phone calls in regards to rhis music app. Im thinking why they publish this one without testing it in the first place right? Why the admin needs to create this stupid app? To ruin all our day? Just to make money? Shame on you Google!
Apple Watch app please! 4/5
There are occasional glitches like some of the other reviews say, but I could easily get over that if I had the ability to change songs or at least adjust the volume with my Apple Watch. I'm holding out hope for that.
Forcibly unpauses ads 1/5
The Google Play Music app forcibly unpauses if you pause during an ad. It is reasonable that a music app would require the listener to play back a full ad before moving to the next song, but it is not reasonable that the ad can’t be paused part way through. Unpausing audio and forcing sound out of the user’s speakers is actively hostile against the user and crosses a line that, in my case, resulted in immediate deletion of this app. Nothing about the size of the music library, the quality of playlist curation, etc. factors into consideration for review as long as this practice is in place.
i lost over 500 songs 2/5
By keep playing google 😤
delete my thumbs up list again and i will end your app
Please fix all the annoying issues on iPhone 7 1/5
Better than the rest
Glitch Fest! 2/5
App stops playing when the apps plays in the background. You got to re open app and keep hitting play in order for the player to start playing music again. VERY ANNOYING. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
Idk what is wrong with it 1/5
I switched to an iPhone from a Samsung S7 and now everything is wrong with google play music the music will pause and it doesn't have the same features it has on the samasung I think google play should fix google play music for the iPhone bc people are still paying y'all money for your music app so the least y'all can do is give us good quality just as if this was a Samsung
Pretty good 2/5
Songs take a bit to load even on fast wifi. 5 stars for improvement? Speed and bugs are just about it:) there is no way to subscribe from an iPhone:(
