It's cool 4/5
I don't like the Lite Beer ads though
Requires YouTube Red for background play. 1/5
That completely defeats the purpose in getting this garbage. I could just download Spotify or SoundCloud and use that instead. This is just YouTube, except you can only look up songs and not in the background.
The opressed 1/5
This unfair i love music and i love yt but this app doesn't work in my country why ? 😭
It's a fine music app. I started the free subscription to get more songs than Spotify has and to have it play in the background. I was very disappointed by the lack of "offline mode". The only thing that you can play offline is a mixtape that YouTube poorly puts together themselves. Despite wanting more songs, I think I'll go back to Spotify. YouTube needs to up their game.
I like cheese sticks 5/5
By bill nea
Cheese sticks are good
Offline option is terrible 1/5
Needs a better offline playlist. For subscribing and paying monthly you should be able to download songs on your playlist, not have a randomly generated one you can't customize. Also no limit to the amount you can download. Most times when I listen to music it's when I'm not on a wifi connection so I'd like to save data as much as possible and I can't with the way the app currently is set up. In short, you should be able to download songs on your playlists so you don't use up data when on the go and just have data take over when you play a song that isn't downloaded.
Youtube is good, youtube music is trash and it looks like youtubes way of getting a subscription without having to pay for the music.
Great music player 4/5
Great for finding new music. Just needs the ability to favorite or dislike songs from the lock screen. Loses a star since songs occasionally gets skipped.
Pretty good 4/5
By Kailey Robles
Its a great app but on thing. It should be able to play in the backround but its a great app
NEED ONE SONG REPEAT!! 1/5
How hard is that to put in a repeat button on that?
This app is a combination of YouTube and the music apps you get automatically on your phone, it is a well functioning app and is helpful for making music playlists and is a great app for work if you are a musician. I highly recommend this app to all users who love music as much as I do.
I always get a lot of ads by a lot I mean 3-4 ads for ever 6 songs however they are not your typical ads of "30 seconds" noooo this ones are for 3-6 min if this update cleared that I'll come back to remove this if not I'll leave it here.
Dont bother... excessive ad's so they can torture you into paying
Best music app and i have tried a lot
Last update 2/5
Last update borked the app
By Yaaassss 😂
this app is actually amazing to be completely honest. It's free and it gets the job done really well. I also like the new update a lot even though it was pretty small and not a very dramatic change to the app but it makes it easier to navigate around the app.
Overall pretty good 4/5
It's a good app for listening to music and for finding new songs to listen to, but it REALLY needs the ability to play in the background and to play without having to keep your phone unlocked and open if it's going to compete with things like Spotify.
No better than YouTube 1/5
Basically the same thing but, you search up music.
By The real lacamus
Great for getting "free" music!
I just absolutely love this lol no more commercials.
I love this app but here is one thing. The app wants you to pay 12.99 for a MONTH of listening offline.
YT red Music 4/5
Definitely helps with the dissatisfaction of YouTube for stopping any video of phone is turned off or application is switched.
Nice app 5/5
Great app, the layout is easy to manage
I feel scammed... 2/5
I like how I can make my playlists and stuff but I got the app because I thought I could listen to music in the background (like the ad said). When I try to do so, I get hit with a purchase... pay for YouTube Red. At least advertise it takes payment. There are at least 20 different apps I could do this on for free.
Pay for YT Red to listen in the background? 1/5
I was hoping this would be better than the YouTube app for music so I could listen while my screen was locked. Apparently, that can only be done if you pay for YouTube Red. What?! You want me to pay for a service just to enable something every other music app does for free? Why would I do that?
A lot of artists post music exclusively on YouTube. More people will use your services and consider to pay for exclusive content if you make it worth it. Excluding basic functionality just to push these services is not something I expected from an official YouTube app.
YouTube is by far my favorite video platform, and has become one of my favorites for music as well. Please fix this!!
Skips when shifting to background process 2/5
Skips the track and stutters every time the app is not on foreground (pressing home button or shifting to another app with track playing). Video remains a frozen for few seconds on resume. Doesn't have up to date features found in the regular YouTube app. Doesn't seem well maintained. What's the point of charging $13/month if the developers don't have enough interest in maintaining their app. Disappointed.
If you don't have data. The offline mixtape is perfect for you!!!
It's another youtube attempt for money (yotube red) 1/5
Nothing different than YouTube itself except EVEN MORE ADS
It charged me 13.09 and I can't use it!!! 2/5
I have an iPhone and I'm upset that I was charged and I go to open my app after seeing I have been charged under my google email account but I logged in that account and it says pay again to have YouTube red so I either want my subscription or my money back because I feel like I just got ripped off. Thanks YouTubeRed. Not Happy
Can't play in background 1/5
Can't play music while using other apps or while the device is in sleep mode unless you upgrade to premium.
Interface not intuitive--frustrating! 2/5
The interfaces of this and other YouTube apps have an elegant appearance, but the problem is they are different than most apps. This requires learning and inevitably resulting in stumbles. I find it frustrating not to be able to get around, and would prefer a more intuitive design, more similar to other apps.
YT Music appears to be a fairly powerful player that lines up YouTube clips like a music player.
It lets you create playlists, which could be a really great feature. Problem is, once I create a playlist, I can't find it in the app! Instead it wants to create a station for me. Nice, but not the functionality I seek.
It has potential 1/5
By SGT Porker
This is the app I use to listen to most of my music but there are some major flaws that can be easily rectified.
First: "My station" ALWAYS starts off with the same 3 or 4 songs in a row for about a week straight. That should not be the case as it makes me quickly grow tired of good songs. Simple fix: make the songs more random so I am not hearing the same 5 songs in a row for 8 days straight.
Second: under My Station on the home page there are great lists like Listen Again, Recommended, and New Music for Me. All impressively composed lists with great songs but I cannot listen to all the songs listed in a playlist at once. Instead I have to click one song and then I am taken to a different playlist compiled from that one song, not all the songs listed previously. Simple fix: add a play button to these three lists so we can listen to the songs you have suggested.
Third: When going through a playlist I frequently notice the app automatically skipping songs for me. Instead of playing them 1,2,3 it may go 1,3,5,6,8 or something similar. There should be no reason the app is skipping songs for me. It's a weird feature that adds confusion instead of enjoyment.
Fourth: the shuffle does not feel random. I will have a playlist of over 100 songs in shuffle and the first songs to pop up on shuffle are the ones I have listened to the most out of all, regardless of where they are placed in a playlist. Eventually I can predict which handful of songs will be played out of over 100 when on shuffle. This only lets me hear a select few songs that I end up getting tired of instead of my full playlist. Please add a "smart shuffle" that plays what you think people want to hear AS WELL AS a normal shuffle that is actually random. Both can be beneficial as people have different preferences.
All easy fixes that I hope you address. YouTube music has been great to me and I love it but these flaws have made me consider finding a new medium for my music.
Love it! 5/5
It's youtube, but less 1/5
The normal youtube app allows you to listen to any song you want, with an option to pay so you can listen in the background and download tracks. What does youtube music do? The exact same thing, nothing else. I'm not even kidding. You still have to pay to play in the background, and there aren't any unique things about the app that make it worth getting alongside the real app. Tldr: it's youtube, but without anything other than music.
cannot stream to chromecast audio 1/5
can't believe Google doesn't support its own hardware. this is such a shame.
Not sure what the point of this app is. Normal YouTube app is easier to use even for listening to music. Music stops when you close the app or sleep your iPhone, in-app layout isn't intuitive, and there are constant pop ups asking you to pay for YouTube Red. Obnoxious.
I download this expecting the background feature to be on here so I can lock my phone and listen to music and nope they just like to waste my battery. Don't get it. Get Spotify.
iPad support and device limit 1/5
By Curtis Hare II
Support iPad and also I reached my device limit and can't delete devices, I'll be switching to Apple Music now.
By Dead shadow
It good that I can listen to my music and stuff but I hate the offline mixtape at least let us make our own offline playlist with our own choice of music.
Waaay over priced. Netflix cost less. 1/5
Asking too much money. Should be $2 per month when I have so many option to listen to music. I'll stick w/ Amazon prime and use the regular YouTube app for music amazon doesn't have. Won't waste my time w/ free version of this app if it won't play in background.
Fix the app 2/5
By Luna 524
I wish you could pick your music on your playlists the stuff it give me is random junk if you fix that this app is easily worth 5 stars
I don't get the point 1/5
Why make a whole new app if I still can't turn off my lockscreen and keep the music playing? Why not just add that feature to the existing YouTube app? I'm still not paying for YouTube Red and deleted this app five seconds after opening it for the first time. Completely worthless unless you are a Red subscriber.
There is literally more ads then music playing and 30 second ads you can't skip are annoying!
I would love this app even more if I didn't have to pay, for it to just play in the background!
By amethyst131 or amethystoceon
I love this app!!! It makes it so easy to get to my music, and not have to sort throw all my other videos. It also help to load my music faster when I'm on the go
Music doesn't play in the background unless you pay, WHAT?! what's the point of it then?! 😑😤 just get literally ANY other music app, and they play in the background for free!
Good music player 4/5
I use this app almost everyday by throwing it on my TV while I clean. I just pick an artist and music like them will play so no issues there. My only grumps is when I use it on my iPad it never goes full screen really because it has the 1x view and 2x view. The other thing i miss is having a queue like the main YT app. Other then all that, it's still a great music app that I prefer over Pandora, Slacker, and even Apple Music.
Thumbs up" 5/5
By Blind Guy60
Great and innovative platform.
I love it 4/5
YouTube music is a great intuitive music app like none other. You must be a YouTube Red subscriber to have music play in the background. But YouTube gives you your favorite artist full library of music released unlike other music apps such as Spotify, Google Play, or even Apple Music that limits them by albums. Not to mention other YouTube perks of downloading music or videos offline and YouTube originals and films. Only negative I have is YouTube music constantly changes your music offline mixtape library based on your play frequency. So a song you listen to and don't listen to for a while would fall to the bottom or out of your list if you don't play it as often. Play it more it stays in the top or beginning of your playlist. You have to use the YouTube App to have a song offline you don't want to fluctuate out of your offline mixtape on the YouTube music app. But the more you listen to a song the longer it will remain in your list of offline mixtape. It also creates a playlist for you. I enjoy YouTube music.
