Lots of issues recently 3/5
Not sure why, all of a sudden it stops after almost every song. I’ve used this app for YEARS and never had this many issues. I have to close the app and come back in to get the next song to play. I’m about to download something else. Please fix!
Good on phone, bad CarPlay experience (crashing) 2/5
I really like the app, it works well just about everywhere except in the car. The primary issues being:
I'm seeing the now playing bug that others have mentioned where it just locks up.
2. The most annoying and problematic is that as soon as my phone locks when playing music over CarPlay, audio playback stops. I have to unlock it again and kill the app to make it work again. When I relaunch, it asks to send a crash report.
Please fix this! The majority of my music intake during the day is during my commute.
Not reliable or fully functional 1/5
CarPlay functionally is slightly above completely unusable.
New items randomly disappear from playlists and I have to reset app data/slam your servers to re-cache gigs of music every few days.
Touch and hold functionality could go a long way towards improve this app. Ditch the dots.
I do really like some things about the interface though, like how the album art is displayed during playback.
if you search an artist, you can play a song from them but the rest of the playlist are songs from different people
I love this app 5/5
I love this app ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Keeps skipping 4/5
I like the app but the only thing is that it keeps skipping in the middle of the song. Overall it’s a great app
A bug that hasn’t gone away when you delete a song it erases the one above it. 2/5
By Lyricaly Addicted
This bug has been here for a long time. Even with my iPod touch. I delete a song from my playlist and it deletes the song above it. Being a song I wanted to keep and leaves the song I wanted to delete. Every time it happens I have to delete the app and reinstall it. It works for a bit and then it will do it again. Just happened right now and I had to write a review. It’s been happening for years now and I’m tired of it. I make a mix for working out and some songs I’m not feeling so I delete and IT KEEPS THE SONG AND DELETES THE ONE ABOVE IT. I’ve even reported the bug years back and it’s still there. I know this app will probably work best on android but c’mon.
Music is the key of Life. Love this App. 5/5
By Miles Strong
It allows me to listen to all the old school music I grew up listening to. And I like how it mixes the Artist in together with each other. Keep it available.
Not worth the money 2/5
I’ve had play music for quite a few months and I’ve finally had it with the app. I can’t count the amount of times the app has told me that I can’t play this song right now or had deleted songs random from albums. It’s also a very feature poor app, seriously I have a 256 gig iPhone with 200 gigs free and cloud photo storage... why do I have to click download for every album I want to have offline and then still have to deal with playback issues.
On top of the feature issues my library is nearly unusable because it was “auto organized” which destroyed my folder structured music library. Not convenient when you listen to a lot of obscure edm artists.
Seriously google it’s 2019 and you can’t deliver a better product than my 10 year old iPod classic... guess I need to go back to rock box since iTunes is just as bad.
Still crashing on iOS version 12.3.1 3/5
Still crashing on my iPhone 8 12.3.1
I love this app please fix it
My third one star review for this app 1/5
Can’t say I don’t expect much more from google. Yet another broken, barely supported product. Playback constantly skipping and stopping, even when the music is downloaded!! That is, if you can get the music to download in the first place. Come on google, how hard is it to get a simple music app together!! I’ve had this app for three years and still barely anything gets fixed. Wrong album art constantly (again, even on downloaded music), random message saying “cannot play this song right now” (AGAIN EVEN ON DOWNLOADED MUSIC). I just don’t understand how you can mess up a music app this bad and still never fix anything.
Purchased music for downloading issue 4/5
This is a great app, be sure to check downloaded music. Tend to have an issue with the download complete on two purchases (one song from one artist, and a full album from a different artist) never show the check that download is complete. Stations are excellent. I do have an issue with connecting to vehicle being that google play app is not featured, streaming music works well
By Knock knock 101
I like but the problem is it’s not related to iPhone it’s only for android or Sam sung. Really disappointed.
Add Apple Watch Support 3/5
There isn’t any cross over between Google Play Music for the Apple Watch. Please add a media player on the Apple Watch or I will have to look at changing subscriptions.
By Your mom(sophie)
The app is very good I like how it has all my favorite singers in the app 👍🏻
Ads causing app to glitch/freeze 1/5
Been super glitchy the last month or so. Whenever ads queue up they more often than not freeze/won’t play and then I have close and restart the app. Also, the frequency of the ads has seemingly gone up recently, which is making this glitch all the more frustrating.
Need Android Features ASAP 4/5
I recently switched to an iPhone after being a heavy Android user for nearly a decade.. It has been a smooth transition so far but a lot of these Google apps are missing key features that Android had. For example, Google Play Music on Android have you the ability to select a song and hit “Play Next” and it would add it to your queue. Another is “Start Radio” which creates a random playlist for you but restarts the song you choose to start radio from.. Android did not interrupt or restart the song. On iPhones you have to hit the settings dots and “Edit queue” then drag the songs you want to play next.. This not as convenient to do.. Especially when driving.. Which I shouldn’t be doing but you know you all do it too. Please add these features and I will gladly give 5 stars. Thank you!!
Music Stops 4/5
This app has been working great for me until now. When an add comes on in the app, the music stops and won’t start again until I switch stations.
Works well but not long 2/5
Radio stops playing after a few songs, need to kill the app and start it over again.
One big issue 3/5
In the beginning this was my favorite app but now I’m noticing when my phone or any device I’m using when the screen goes out the music stops and if an ad comes on when the screen is black it stops working all together until I change to a different station. It’s very frustrating & is starting to happen more & more.
Found a Bug! 1/5
When deleting a song from a playlist, it deletes songs above the one selected. I have restarted both the app and my phone and it still has issues. It’s also extremely annoying to create playlists on this app. Why can’t you just have and add button where I can quickly select all the songs to put on it. It’s like 3 clicks just to add one song!! It’s ridiculous.
Solid app 4/5
I’ve been using Play music on android for years and have had very few issues, and this version on Apple is good as well. This is way way better than the YouTube music app, but I would like the feature of being able to reorder the songs in the queue easily like in the Play music android app.
Hello Google Music Goodbye Apple Music 5/5
Google Play Music doesn’t cost money!!!Why do you want to music for about 1.99? Free music or Spend money just for music
Needs play back speeds 4/5
While I like the app in general, I like to listen to some speeches I have down loaded and like to play them at 1.5 to 2x speed. This app does not allow for that. Also, the ability to play music to the echo dots would help as well.
Google play music 5/5
This is by far my FAVORITE music app!!!! I live my life in song lyrics, music pulses through my veins!!! I used to have to bounce around from pandora to Spotify to YouTube and back to pandora again so that I could find everything I needed/wanted to add to my playlist for the day. But I discovered Play Music a little over a year ago and There has only been 7 songs that I couldn’t find 😍😍😍 BUT WAIT THERES MORE!!!! FREE DOWNLOADS so you can jam out to while off line 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰so it’s a win win for me!!!
Hasn’t worked right in years. Offline mode CONSTANTLY crashes and online mode freezes more often than not if service is interrupted(forget being in the subway). I’ve had this for years over 2 phones and 2 different phone carriers. Done with this forever.
I love it! 5/5
This app is freaking amazing!!!
Best Music, but not perfect... 4/5
I abseloutly LOVE this game (even though it’s not a game) it’s super addicting. When I first had YouTube I got banned from it until school ended, and I didn’t know how to play my music without it. This changed everything!
Unfortunately, rumors are true, this isn’t the perfection in music. I’m still a kid and when I first got the game I had restrictions on. My dad turned the restrictions off but it still wasn’t a pretty scene. Unfortunately for me, all the songs that had bad words in them had an “E” on the front. You wanna know why I didn’t like that? BECAUSE I COULD NOT HEAR ANY SONGS WITH THE “E” IN THEM! I was extremely frustrated. That’s why I never really play it anymore
It works very well last time but when I tried to go in it keeps saying that making an account is easy and to go to your website but idk how and I also made an account. I’ve been working on this for about a week now. Please fix
CarPlay Issues 1/5
Extremely glitchy with Google Play Music (and Siri). I have the paid subscription of Play Music, but the app in Apple Car Play will no longer display any information (playlists, songs, now playing, etc). It’s just a black screen (the music will play and I can see the songs only on MyLinks “iPod” screen, not Car Play). I tried uninstalling the app and resetting MyLink in my Silverado to default settings, while also manually disconnecting all services from each other. That did not fix the problem. I will also ditto some of the Siri complaints and take it a step further. If Siri isn’t properly prompted, it will freeze all volume controls in my Silverado including the volume knob and the steering wheel volume controls for my entire radio (not just Apple Car Play). Nothing will fix this issue until I am completely out of the car, turn it off, and come back at least 15 minutes later for me to get control over my radio back. This hasn’t yet happened to me on a “long drive” for more than an hour, but I’ve been stuck for at least half an hour in a frozen volume purgatory (can’t adjust up or down). Between Apple and Google, get your ish together. This is just embarrassing for both of you as multi billion dollar companies.
I’m confused 2/5
By How can i help you?
I opened this app to be able to download music so that when I’m offline I’ll be able to listen to it but instead I cannot even figure out how to download the music I want. How do I get to the downloading option? I’m honestly confused
It’s okay 3/5
By bella 744
I was always thought this app was good till recently when I tried to get my downloaded music on the app on a different device and it wasn’t there. They need to fix that.
IT JUST PLAYS RANDOM SONGS
Google Music Problems 2/5
Even after the last update when you want to play that artist it still won’t play Artist Radio and wouldn’t play before as well something is wrong fix it please! Thank You as soon as possible!!
Can’t even get into the app 1/5
Got the app figured it was just a new version of Spotify or something turns out you can’t even sign in.
No podcast accessibility 3/5
By Nigel talk
They have to make google podcasts available on iPhone.
It’s so bad on CarPlay that it’s not even safe to use while driving. Please make it better or just get rid of it
Like it so far
By nuna bussniess
Very very terrible music app I don’t know why I even rate it 1 star it a very bad bad app for music I highly doubt it it is 5 stars garbage and 0.1 star good very bad app
Better than Apple Music 5/5
The paid version of Google Play is phenomenal. They create great playlists and they remember what you like to listen at certain times of the day or on certain days of the week. I find this app easier to navigate than Apple Music also. Even when you close the app, it saves the last song you were listening to to. Apple Music doesn’t do this. It’s a huge advantage for me lol. I just wish I could say “Hey Siri, play...” and she would open Google Play. That’s the only draw back when using the app from iPhone.
Google Rules 5/5
I WILL only EVER Google for my music the sound quality is exceptional and thanks 2 the cloud I always have it available 2 me no matter what device!! You Freakin Rock Google!!!
Love it! 5/5
It works great! I love everything about it! Only thing is that when I’m driving it glitches and shuts the music off. I shouldn’t ever touch my phone when I’m driving or I could crash. Please fix this bug and/or glitch immediately.
Problem with editing playlist 1/5
Anytime I try to edit a playlist I created, it deletes a song that wasn’t selected.
No EQ - Deal breaker 1/5
I currently have a monthly subscription for music with Google but will soon be canceling it and start paying the monthly fee for Apple Music. The problem is the built-in EQ settings for the iPhone does not affect music using this app.
You would think Google would add a simple EQ built into their music player. After doing some research I have seen that people have asked for it for years and it is still not available. My hearing is not what it used to be and need to use an EQ to make music sound “normal” again. Very disappointed in this app and is a dealbreaker. I will be forced to use Apple Music so I can set EQ settings.
Overall, great. 4/5
I love this app for editing and drawing, as I can just put it in the background while other apps are running. There are no audio ads, and music is uninterrupted. There are only a few skips allowed, but it’s worth it for the freedom from pesky ads. The app is a tiny bit buggy, but overall works fine!
I can’t play my faves 4/5
Now I love this app, but I can’t even play my favorite songs. Even though they come up every now and then, it won’t let me play it and it super annoying. Also it wont let me play it when I play the radio of it.
Best app 5/5
It would be great if you could also listen to podcasts (like on the android version). Otherwise, pretty satisfied.
