Why should we have to pay just to listen to music in the background ? Like seriously these people try to make music off EVERYTHING. It's so stupid to pay 12.99 a month just to have it playing in the background. 12.99!!!! At least lower the price if that's the case. So ridiculous.
It's good but, it could be better! 🤷🏾♀️ 4/5
I listen to YT Music all the time and it is my go to for all my favorite secular and Israelite music. BUT it would be better if more than 1 person can use the same account at the same time, with their own profile. Kinda like Netflix
Feels like both YTmusic and gpm are going downhill 1/5
- if the connection drops for a millisecond, the app would show a loading sign and then refuse to resume playing the song, forcing me to change track back and forward.
- the UI seems to be a little bulky and hard to navigate.
-the app is missing a lot of features, please consider adding (block explicit songs) option like gpm.
-because a lot of the videos are user uploaded, when i make a playlist, i usually find out that a lot of videos are unavailable due to copyright violations, which made me move back to Spotify.
-also , i'm not a big fan of the music suggestions this app has.
- i'm patiently waiting (and optimistic) for the outcomes of the YT-music and GPM merger.
You have to pay 1/5
Why should you have to pay when you are just listening to music
New Music Station 5/5
By David Nolasco
Nice change of pace from all the current music apps and very nice beats
No real charm 2/5
It just wasnt good
Overall great 5/5
Everything is great price is a little up but not to bad like the offline mixtape and off app play
doesn't play music when you hit the home button unless you pay 4/5
By Your mama is dead😵
other than that it works good
APP is awesome but...no background play! 4/5
You guys should work on a background non-stop play, like Spotify! It will be then the best music app ever!
Too expensive 1/5
You can use other apps and pay $5-$10 monthly that'll the same thing as this but with this you have to pay $13 each month, doesn't seem like much but when you add up the numbers for each month it'd be best to go with the cheaper yet similar apps.
YouTube Music 5/5
Exiting YT Music 3/5
By G Jo J
This is a nice app for listening to music, but my only problem is leaving YT Music. As soon as I leave this app my music just stops. It would be great if it just kept playing while I do other things.
If you don't pay 13$ a month it's the same app as normal YouTube
Too expensive cost as much 2/5
Cost as much as a subscription to cable channel at home, and 12 dollar less then my light bills, 12.99 a month is a big joke I'm using one more month and I'm done , that's ridiculous it's only streaming music, come on Apple Music is 9.99 and have higher quality
Need an iPad optimized version 3/5
By FHB Customer
It's ok on the iPhone but on the iPad it stinks. If they had an iPad version I'd give it 4 or 5 stars.
IM LOVIN IT! 5/5
By Joran D
Leave it to Google
I'd give it zero stars 1/5
Costs 13 dollars per month and it still doesn't allow you to pick your own music. Can't manually change song order either. Go for spotify. Costs less, slightly less number of songs, but you get to make your own playlist.
Remember the good ok' days? 1/5
Remember when people used to be able to turn off their screens and listen to YouTube? I even remember when YouTube was a default downloaded application on Apple iPods and iPhones... I suggest doing one of a few things since now they think it's funny to get you to pay to listen to other people's content while saving your battery. They are as follows:
1.) Get a portable charger, I did this for some time. It only cost me about $30 and worked well except for while working out. I could leave my phone screen on as inconvenient as that is and not worry about it eating through 4 iPhone batteries worth any time soon.
2.) Buy a cheep MP3 player that accepts micro SD cards, I currently do this. There are plenty of websites that will change a video into MP3 format which you can then store on the SD and have to your convince. I currently do this and it's awesome since now I don't have to worry about my phone battery at all, using data to listen, waiting on videos to load, or a bulky battery pack getting in my way. And since you can now buy micro SD cards up to 512 GB and can be interchangeable, I don't worry about space either. It's a wonderful alternative and will eventually pay itself off in no time at all if you don't go hog wild and buy the most expensive MP3 player out there, and a 64GB card should do fine and is relatively cheap, as for the websites those a free.
In short I hate listening to music on the app anymore and really only use it in the background on my computer anymore. 10/10 do not recommend paying for Red. It's even more ridiculous now that they have blocked you from playing YouTube in the background through Safari browsers... Not a move that is to pleasing to the majority of your users guys... But hey, it's all about the money right, at least I agree on that point which is why I saved on Red and bought an MP3.
Heavily recommend against this app and instead investing a $40 investment into getting a MP3 player of your own and a micro SD card.
Good way to discover new music 5/5
By Social guy 1000
Favorite feature is to play a song I like and then listen to new music that's similar which autoplays.
Extremely Capable; Not the Easiest 4/5
Google's algorithms and vast library of music including special YouTube musicians creates an amazing experience for finding new and popular music, and anything else you want to find, but simple things in the User Interface (UI) and navigating through the app make simple things unnecessarily difficult. With YouTube Red, your Offline Mixtape is specially crafted to your liking, constantly changing to what you like, and other things that you may like, but the fact that you cannot custom create your own mixtape from scratch to stay offline, and the extreme lengths you have to go through to create a new playlist, and to access it after that make things very difficult. Simple things like playing your playlist when you open it can also become a great annoyance, for instance, when you're previewing another song in the background. Although these simple software annoyances that can be simply edited still exist, the app is still a great experience going hand in hand with the extra benefits of YouTube Red.
Its great 5/5
It has became a really good app for me to use and has provided me a lot of songs
It's so good but the price is a little high I guess just so we can listen to music with our phone locked
Pretty nice 5/5
This is pretty nice
I love this app but 5/5
By Travis Noack
I like how with my YouTube Red Subscription I can do cool things on YouTube music but I want to see if you guys can make the app have a Ipad design as well please!
Can't play with screen off 1/5
By NDS Nick
What kind of music app requires you to keep your screen on? Why wouldn't I just use the regular YouTube app?
The Reason 4/5
The only reason I it it is because the ads that they have for it center around my favorite band, Chvrches.
Pushing a service too much 1/5
You have to subscribe to "YouTube red" to be able to play music in background and other basic functionality. Pandora and all other free music apps lets you do so. If you want people to subscribe to "red" you better offer something better than other free services.
A Good Music App 4/5
YouTube Music has a very simplistic and nice look to it. The colors it uses go well together, and it overall looks very smooth. There is not much you can do to customize the app, but what it gives you is great by itself.
Music Variety: 5/5
Using YouTube's massive library of content, you are able to find almost any song you can imagine. It has a plethora of popular and indie songs available to you.
Offline Listening: 3/5 (Subscription needed)
The offline section of YouTube Music has never really been its strong point, but it has definitely improved with the last update. Before, you had to rely on the offline mixtape. The offline mixtape automatically downloads songs based on what you listen to. However, even with the settings leaning towards low variety, I always found songs in my mixtape that seemed very random. This was improved in the last update, allowing you to download specific songs in a rather roundabout way. If you want to download a specific song, you need to add it to a playlist and then download the playlist. It isn't difficult, but could definitely be made easier.
YouTube Music is overall a great looking app with a large variety of music to listen to. However, when compared to some other music apps, its offline capabilities are somewhat lacking. I would definitely recommend using YouTube Music if you are considering it.
YouTube Copy??🤣 1/5
By Some stole person
I just downloaded this app and I remember that you could lock the phone screen but now just have two apps for the same use...YouTube videos...
Great video app 4/5
This is a great app for video lovers. It easily develops music channels for me.
1. iPhone only
2. Requires sign in
Excellent algorithm, but light on basics 3/5
Google is great at finding me new music, but the UI for this app is very unintuitive. Who'd've thunk my playlists were under the like tab even though playlists have nothing to do with liked songs. The way of managing songs and playlists is confused because one screen is for viewing or listening while another is for management.
It's called YouTube MUSIC. Why does my screen have to be ON to LISTEN?!??? Thanks, but I already have the YouTube video app.
Great app 5/5
Love the app! Would be great if I could use my Apple Watch as a remote to change songs instead of having to get my phone out though. There should be an app for Apple Watch
Great music app love auto offline mixtape! 5/5
Great music app, so simple to use his great selection and the automatic offline mixtape knows what I want!
It's a nice app! 4/5
I love what it does so far but it's lacking a lot of features. I think this app would work WONDERS if you could somehow merge play music and YouTube music. but I love it for what it does. hopefully this project doesn't get chopped and Google expands!
Apps broken 1/5
The apps never given me an issue until a few days ago, it's stuck in some kind of limbo. I'm completely unable to update the app and I can't even erase the app because it just reads "waiting"
WHY CAN'T YOU TURN YOUR PHONE OFF? TAKES MY BATTERY DOWN 10% AFTER 2 SONGS!
By Me dayle
It's an ok app. Should be able to choose which music I want offline. Also I can't turn my offline mixtape off this version. Fix please? I like the audio only option tho saves battery.
Great app 5/5
Definitely a must for the gym and on the go!
Usually love this app 1/5
Once I updated I can't even play a song, it keeps skipping down the list until is says retry. All I can listen to is my offline mixtape. Very disappointed
Barely Functional App 2/5
Everything worth doing in this app is easily doable in regular Youtube. The only somewhat useful feature is the offline mixtape, but it's completely random. Songs from multiple years ago will often show up on my offline mixtape. It'd be a great app if users could choose which songs were on their offline mixtape, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Google needs to fix this app before it dies.
What's the point 2/5
Garbage app what's the point if it's the same as the regular YouTube one especially if it shuts down when phone screen is off can't even work in background.
Trash trash trash
By Alice Selene Mata
AMAZING I LOVE THE MUSIC AAHHH!!😍😍
Great but doesn't work 2/5
By Yur bro
I used to use this app all the time. Now none of the songs can play. Youtube music is trash.
Why do we have to pay for background music now? We never had to do that before. And all of my music apps got taken down because of that.
A headache 2/5
Why in the world does my playlist shuffle a song after 15 seconds into a song and it won't stop!! Fix it!!!
