I am impressed with the selection of music that YouTube music has in their databases. Love thinking of a song and being able to listen to it when I want. Also, I love the way this thing gets to know what I like . I love it!!
Can you guys just let us have the ability to close the app and have it keep on playing
Decent enough 4/5
I certainly don't regret making the switch from Apple Music.
I would like to see 2 improvements. The ability to save what was played as a playlist to play again & sorting out user created songs would be great.
Put the share button back 5/5
I highly recommend downloading this app but Please put the share button back!
Nice app just.... 4/5
By Ryleigh K
It is a nice app to listen to music when I can't play my favorite song on Spotify. (Due to skipping to it so many times. 😂) However, there is just one thing that bothers me that a lot of other users have experienced.
The fact that I would have to pay for YouTube Red just to listen to it while my phone it is turned off is just unnecessary. Cmon YouTube just really? It is kind of stupid.
You are competing with other music apps why not just give users the things that they would expect from a music app (ex. Spotify, Apple Music, etc.)
Other users and I would really appreciate if you would be able to let us have the ability to listen to music while our devices are off. (For free) So we can enjoy listening to music. 🙂
It asks for all of your payment information for the free trial. Even Spotify doesn't ask for that for the free trial. Might as well download that instead.
Select your own music to download 3/5
Really good app for what it does. Is it possible to add a feature to select your own music to download instead of relying on mixtape? Or even be able to download your own playlist? A feature like this would be greatly appreciated. Already have YT Red so, please and thanks!
Chrome cast not working 3/5
Chrome cast not working
Love it! 4/5
This app is awesome I will say the only thing i don't like is the fact that when you lock you're phone it skips once or twice but when thats fixed I will give 5 stars
Love everything but one thing 4/5
So I live in a place where I cant use this app, which is unfortunate. Reason being because I got it in the US so I assumed it would work everywhere. Upon seeing it doesn't work everywhere I became disappointed because there's a lot of music I would like to listen to. So, please, relate this app on a global scale. Aside from that great app!
perfect for Asian users 5/5

SO LAGGY!!! 2/5
When i downloaded it took for ever!! It never takes that long to download something.
YouTube Music? 1/5
By bruno okumura
you actually have to PAY $12.99/mo in order to have music playing in the background. dont waste your time and just find other better alternatives than this crap
You can't play music in the background. Whenever you switch applications/minimize YouTube Music, it turns off. It defeats the whole purpose of even having this sad excuse of an app. Please fix or stop lying about it.
YouTube red 4/5
I would love to have a list of favorite singers that you get to like them then you have the list of all of them
What's the point? (+How to play music in the background for free!) 2/5
The first part is the actual review. The second part is how you can play YouTube videos in the background without YouTube red.
Also, I'm not complaining that you need to pay for YouTube red. I'm complaining for a different reason.
As far as I can see, there is literally NO point to download this app. You can't play apps in the background, or download music unless you have YouTube red. I get that if it had downloadable music for free it would be illegal, but every other music app lets people play songs in the background! This app is basically the YouTube app with or without red.
If you do want to play any video in the background (and yes, any video), just open safari and go to the YouTube site and play a video. Close safari, open the control center, and click the play button in the music section. Boom!
Can't play in the background 1/5
If you minimize the app, the music's over
No me deja entrar por qué estoy en PANAMÁ coloque el. De USA tampoco
All I wanted was to play music in the background! 1/5
I hate that you can't play music in the background while I'm scrolling through Instagram or to just turn it off so I can't waste battery and just listen to music. I used to do the simple trick where you can do it on YouTube on safari and listen to music in the background but they removed that too. This was all because of YouTube red. I don't want to pay monthly for your series or free ads I just want to listen to music!
Can't leave app... 1/5
I was under the impression that you could leave the app and it would continue playing, however that is not the case. So it's basically the same as YouTube.
It's ok but 2/5
Why put the ability to lock your phone behind a pay wall 🤔 far superior music apps (Spotify...SoundCloud) let you lock your phone while listening.
Everysong says unavailable 1/5
It was def 5 stars when I first got the app it was great any song you could want with videos too. To bad about a month into having it random vevos started saying "unavailable in your country". I fingured that was vevos fault but now like 80% of the music says unplayable. It's very anoying.
Love it 5/5
Love this app use it daily great app
Might as well keep using YouTube 1/5
So the only difference is that there is no video, forget about using other apps or locking your phone. Don't bother downloading this app.
Needs improvements 1/5
I hate that you can't play the freakin music in the background 🙄🤔😡😠😡😡
Awful UI/UX 1/5
The UI/UX is awful, not intuitive at all. Please reorganize all the selections. The user playlist is too hidden, do you expect us always open the front page and let it play what you suggest?
Also have no idea why it's so unnatural to make my offline playlist. Why not just let us make our existing playlist become offline? Why am I only allowed to choose the offline one from your suggestion?
Stupid af YouTube... learn some from Spotify please. I use it simply because it has more resources for international music, otherwise it's just pathetic as a music player app.
So frustrated 1/5
When you first get YouTube red everything seems to work perfectly. A month later I am pulling my hair out because this YouTube music app won't work. Which wifi without wifi using data it gives me the same f* sh*. I decided to give it one more try but still the exact same thing. I had uninstalled the app to install it once more. Ha! No didn't work deleted the app and discontinued my YouTube red account. Just terrible at $12.99 you would expect this sh* to work better than pandora or Spotify.
One problem 4/5
By Childish Alfino
The app is great but the only problem I have is that when I listen to the electronic music station a Christmas song comes up because I liked a Christmas song one time. This app needs to improve its algorithm so when you listen to a genre music station it actually chooses songs you listen to in that genre.
Not any different from YouTube 1/5
If you think that this app is going to offer you background music, think again, it's just YouTube with less variety. If you really want to listen to music without your screen on, you have to get YouTube red, you have to PAY in order to get the ability that other music apps give you for Free, your better off just buying Spotify or any other Music app.
No YT red? No use. 2/5
By I don't think so..
This app is really really good.
If you have YouTube red.
Otherwise, this is the most pointless app besides I Am Rich, but even THAT has a calculator.
When I got this there was a free trial.
The offline mixtape is ok, but I love how you could play music in the background and an audio only mode.
Love it but..... 4/5
I LOVE it but one suggestion if you hit home the music will sill play so that you can play games and listen to music.
Music app that goes silent on screen off 1/5
By Abhijeet aps
Are you beeping kidding me? Paid or not music apps are supposed to keep running and playing music.
It was only about time when dumb apps start coming out of a company like Google.
Won't work 1/5
Takes forever to load unless you have really super good wifi/internet/cellphone service. Needs to be better any way you look at it.
So it doesn't work on my phone at all and idk why whenever I try to open a video it always says "something went wrong retry" and no matter how many times I retry it doesn't work
Doesn't work 😤 1/5
It doesn't work!!! Keeps saying there is an error every time I try to click any video.
Great app! But..... 4/5
This is an amazing app! Endless music! Only 10 second adds! The only thing is that you can't turn ur phone off while listening to the music. U have to keep the app open which wastes battery. At least it wastes mine. Other than that, it's a really good app!!
1 STAR! 1/5
By Nathan Kobie
I was getting this so I could play music in the background but NOOOOOO you have to have YouTube RED! Which costs MONEY. I just want to be able to play any song I want on wifi or data and turn my phone off and enjoy it without it stopping and wasting my battery because my screen is on.
Great app!!! 5/5
This app is great for people with a YouTube account because you can easily get music offline and online.
I honestly think this is better than Spotify!! It's easier to work with and it always knows what type of music to suggest! It's like it reads my mind!
Would totally give it five if it weren't the most expensive app!! 4/5
I love this. I finally found my music app. Gone through them all; Spotify pandora iTunes regular old you tube, even rhapsody. Lol. This is my music app soulmate, it picks every song I could ever want. It's just the most expensive of them all. Help us out you tube, we are poor.
Without playing in background and play only sound without downloading video, it is bad! 1/5
By Lampros 321
Bad, nothing new...
1st Comment 4/5
It's a thing now. Deal. 5/5
By Virtual Druid
All music in the unit is here.
Thiss app works very well and is awesome i love it it loads very well and has good
Not any different from YouTube 1/5
By Pandaz 898
I got this app because I was told that I could listen to music and leave the app, well apparently that was a lie and you have to have a YouTube red membership for that, which is stupid considering that's it's just YouTube but without regular videos. So it's basically pointless to get this app unless you already have a YouTube red. I'm disappointed to say the least.
Why do I need this in addition to regular YouTube app? 1/5
By Doc DNYC
So unless you pay $13 a month, no background play. Explain why I need this in addition to the regular YouTube app?
By Nylou 23
I love it how u could go thru your phone and the videos keep playing.
Great mix of music that I love 2/5
Youtube music provides me with a huge selection of auto generated playlists filled with a all the genres i love.
However the app has two major issues that make me often use other apps for the same purpose, and both effect only youtube red customers like myself.
1) When putting the app in the back ground it will often make the music stutter at time it enters background and when starting new songs.
2) When in the background and paused, it is almost always impossible to control the music by resuming or skipping with the built in ios music controls.
Both these problems are unacceptable for paid users. And make it difficult to use the app as intended and so reflect on the rating given.
I love it! Exclusive music for all kinds of mixtapes and part of YouTube red suite is too good to beat!!! Thanks google!!! Now combine them.
