Every update makes my app slower and it freezes and crashes more. Just leave the updating alone. Y’all aren’t fixing anything. Y’all are just making this app more and more difficult and you will be loosing a customer.
Stuck on shuffle 1/5
My playlist are stuck on shuffle. No option to change it. Crashes on Cromecast. This last update is terrible.
Used to love app 2/5
Then my music started skipping. It takes MULTIPLE (5 6 7 8) tries to delete a song. Never while the song is playing. Sometimes when it’s a few songs in front or behind. I have to try to remember which songs in the last 10 I want to delete. VERY frustrating! If I didn’t have ALL of my music on here I would definitely delete
Alarm clock 4/5
I love the app, but what would make it better is if I could wake up listening to it! If you folks @google could make it work with some kind of alarm clock capabilities, that would definitely make my next review 5 stars.
Works but it’s very buggy 3/5
Like everyone is saying songs stop playing randomly plus for some reason the app is always laggy other than it works wish it was optimized better for iOS
Fix bugs 1/5
Really buggy hardly works, the playback hardly ever works, app crashes constantly and now it just force closes when I try to open it...
It keeps stoping in the middle of playing when the app is closed.
Trouble chrome casting 1/5
This app stopped working on chromecast from my iPhone a few months ago. Will there be a fix?
Not user friendly, can’t create radio stations 2/5
By Robin Olivia
I enjoyed pandora and the ability to discover new artists and tweak stations. On google play music it’s difficult to create custom stations because you have to create a playlist then turn that playlist into a station. I’d like the ability to have multiple artists on one station and actually pick them instead of google telling me what I like based on a single song or group of songs. You have to add entire albums or single songs instead of just the artist. It’s incredibly non-user-friendly and the music stops to buffer far more often than either Spotify or pandora. Considering this is a google product I’m astounded at how difficult customizing stations and general app use is. It costs more than either of the other services as well.
Please bug check this app 2/5
By Slowly moving away from Google
For how seldom google updates this you’d think they’d bug check. I’ve switched over to Apple Music while ago cause how buggy this app was but today I decided to give it a shot. First thing I do share a song and share button does nothing.
Won't download music on iphone 3/5
I got the app and was glad they added Google play music to iPhone cause rice bought a ton of songs but it won't download all my music and I have plenty of storage
Apple CarPlay is buggy 3/5
Google play music is great as an app by itself. The radio station and playlist has some of the best recommendations. Compared to Its competitors this really lacks with Apple Car Play. If you hear a song you like you can’t thumbs up or add it to your library through Apple Car Play. Also, the Car Play is very buggy it freezes on almost every trip. The music still plays but I’ll usually have to force close the app on my phone and restart for it to show on Car Play. Sometimes even restarting the app doesn’t work so just have to deal with no Car Play. If Car Play worked as intended, and have better user functionality to add music to the library this would be 5 Stars.
App is unstable 1/5
This app is running terribly. It crashes constantly. It won't download some albums or playlists without explaination. When it isn't crashing it will just hang on a screen and be unresponsive.
Refuses to stream music 1/5
Buggy playlist editing 1/5
By Grant Brown
The app itself is well done, but there is one app braking bug that makes it impossible to edit a playlist on the iOS app (the android app does not have this bug). When ever you try to swipe to delete a song from a playlist or try to edit the song always seems to reappear after deletion. This is incredibly frustrating when you do not have a Android device on hand to correct the playlist! Google, please fix! I enjoy using my google play subscription each month and I would hate to move away from the service back to apple music since your service includes YouTube RED.
By Big Zaddy Cee
Whenever I open the app it crashes
Needs work 1/5
Slow. Not as many features as Spotify. Radio repeats the same songs over and over if you listen long enough.
Why so many new glitches?? 2/5
This is hands down my favorite music app- love the stations. But lately it’s been glitchy AF. Music stops playing when I go into a different app; it freezes; it shuts down for no reason.
Please fix it, team! I don’t want to have to switch. :(
continues to disappoint me 1/5
why is my playlists are not sorted alphabetically? I named it so it is in the order that I want.
App is Much Smoother After Update 4/5
App used to get sluggish and crash often. Update seems to have resolved that.
Still a buggy, slow mess. Songs randomly fail to show up in search, things skip for no reason, and heaven help you if you try to queue up a download.
So the app almost never works and when it does it usually skips the songs I’m playing. I always have a pretty good data connection in my neighborhood so I know it’s not that. This used to be my favorite music app but now I just use Apple Music since this is such a hassle.
Stopped working a few days ago 1/5
By Getmerated user
Please fix that
Needs a interface update 3/5
The interface needs to be updated. Like can we have a playlist that shows our top 25 most played songs. It need to match up to iTunes. This has so much potential. Also can u add like a download button near the song rather having to click the 3 dots then clicking download, similar to iTunes.
Freezes while using Apple Carplay 2/5
It's been 3 months since this app was last updated and it constantly freezes in Apple carplay. I pay for a Google Play Music subscription, because I like it better than Apple Music, but can hardly use it in my car. Also, it still hasn't been updated to visually work on the iPhone X, but other Google apps have.
App is great but.... 3/5
I don't understand why it always tells me storage device full when I click on a song to play. This is an app. I shouldn't have to have a certain amount of storage on my phone for the app to work. I've cleaned out my phone several times and it still does this. Please fix this.
Awesome Update - April 2018 !! 5/5
I was waiting SO LONG for this update .. I love it ..... even works with my iPhone X too ... THANK YOU...... please try to keep up with UPDATES ??? !!!! My music is my life !!! LOL
You Tube Music app is great BUT . the volume kinda LAME .. so.....Google Play Music app is the BEST for the iPhone X !!!
Still not working with Chromecast audio 1/5
Yet again... Another update that's supposed to fix bugs and they still haven't fixed the issue with this app not working with Google's own media player.
Yet another abandoned google service 2/5
YouTube Red probably keeps this music service alive, but it’s very obvious this app gets very little attention from google.
If you’re here for the music, just don’t. If you’re here because it’s included with your YouTube Red subscription, it’s tolerable. Just don’t count on it sticking around for too much longer.
Worst google app 1/5
You can’t even edit the name of your playlist, no 3D touch support and artwork is zoom too much they don’t care about this app 3 month without a update and nothing has changed.
Stopped using due to increasing number of crashes. 2/5
I mainly only used Google Music in the car. When songs would just stop playing in the middle of it, it would distract my driving. I figured, oh it happened just once or twice, a new update should quash those bugs. But as the updates kept rolling, I got more and more tired of how the music would just outright stall. (I also was not having any problems with any other streaming services or music already downloaded onto my phone.) After a while, I just deleted the app and now use either the music I’ve already got downloaded or Pandora.
Bad stuttering performance 2/5
This app does not perform well! When entering an album to view and select songs, the scrolling performance is choppy, it is not smooth like Apple Music or like the same app on Android. YouTube on iOS 12 has a similar problem. When I’m scrolling through the comments, scrolling is choppy. I wonder why that is? Is Apple purposely slowing down google apps, to make their apps seem better. I don’t have any issues with these apps on android. It seems suspicious!
This app is ok. You can hook up your Gmail account and have music subscription along with YouTube Red… But while playing music the progress bar doesn’t show up sometimes and it doesn’t work with Siri. With Apple Music you can tell her to shuffle your music or to play a specific song, but you can’t do that with this. Also adding songs to your library is annoying and takes some practice.
Minor issue 3/5
Issue with not being able to edit the name of the playlist
This is amazing I’ve never thought of this until my friend told me about it! I love it!
Frequent Bugs When Fast Forwarding 3/5
By Thaler AB
The app does a good enough job fetching my Google Play music for the most part. The app will often fail to play music at selected times. When I request a song play 2 minutes into a 5 minute track, it will just play the whole track from the beginning - regardless of time skip selection.
Very poor experience in nyc 2/5
This is a high maintenance app requiring too much user interaction. It often stops streaming even if my connectivity is good. If it does move to offline mode, it doesn’t come back to streaming when service is restored. I often have to deal with a retry pip-up rather than it just retrying in its own. If you Re thinking of paying for this as your primary music service, I’d recommend looking elsewhere.
Excellent Music Streaming App 5/5
Seemingly endless amount of songs/tracks on this app, you can play a radio station of a band or playlist or song, no advertisements, you can download songs for offline listening too.
Good service bad App 2/5
I have have been a paid customer of Google Music since it began. I live the service itself, but the IOS experience is not good. I would blame Apple for everything but Spotify works fine. There are many bugs from stop and go music to issues with chromecast. Worst is that it lacks basic features like and equalizer. How can a an app that aims to be the source of your musical enjoyment lack any ability to adjust to personal taste? For this reason I’m leaving Google Music as soon as I find an easy way to transfer my playlists.
Crashes, freezes, and exits automatically 2/5
This app consistently crashes upon liking a song and it freezes for 5 seconds before resuming play of any song. It also sometimes exits out on its own.
Bugs are unbearable 1/5
I'm a long time Google Play Music subscriber. Beb using it on Android for years.
My biggest complaint is when I switch playlists, or start a radio station, or anything else like that... Apple play music kicks in and takes control of the music and stops my music in the app. It's like clockwork. Every time I change my playlist, etc., It breaks.
My setup, I'm either listening to music through Bluetooth or through the USB cable in my car (better audio quality). And it happens. Fix the bug and I'll fix my review.
Half the functionality of Android App 2/5
Buggy, keep having to reset app data 1/5
I have to reset application data 3-4x a day. Newly added songs randomly disappear from my thumbs up playlist on the iOS app. The result is me slamming your servers again and again to redownload all my cached music because the app is so buggy.
4 months without update 1/5
The app as it stands is mostly broken, adding items to your library doesn't work and the general UI barely works. The update for iPhone X makes the UI for non iPhone X phones glitchy. Desperately needs an update it's been over four months.
Good but buggy after iPhone X release 4/5
Good but has top nav issues occasionally. I have to close the app then restart to get the top nav back. Assuming this is that crappy iPhoneX at work again.
Buggy and Too Simple (Welcome to the Future?) 1/5
The app does what it is designed to do, albeit 'bugily'. Sometimes, after clearing the queue and attempting to add a few songs/albums back to the empty queue results in utter app hell: the second item bring added will clear/remove the queue. This issue seemingly continues to happen, even after properly closing the app or restarting the phone. If it doesn't go away by 'itself' a reinstall appears to fix it. This is just one of many issues this app on iOS (11.3.x) has. I'm very unimpressed, to say the least. Just a tip: most issues can be (temporarily) fixed by using the "reset application settings" option in the Settings menu.
Update: Now 1 (0) star.
It’s great because I enjoy being able to listen to music offline and without WiFi and it’s a great way to listen to music which is my getaway and that is why I enjoy this app.
wish it worked better 2/5
love google play music bc i adore the stations and music finding algorithms however, several aspects are not functional. My last added playlist has stopped updating. Also there is no way to make the queue work:-/ I am constantly losing music. I’ve been subscribed for over five years and there is absolutely no way i have five years worth of music in my library. I’m getting fed up and am seriously considering switching to spotify. the only think keeping me here is the youtube red
Love the app 5/5
Love the app compared to apple music.
