Music stops playing 1/5
As soon as I exit the app or turn my iPhone off, my music stops playing!
Average music app at best 3/5
This app does the basics well, you are able to download for offline easily. But there aren’t as many user friendly playlists as Spotify, not to mention the lack of other friendly features like lyrics or an auto generated playlist for running based on your running pace.
The CarPlay side desperately needs a new update. Please add a shuffle button to it.

Really good music and it fits my needs 😍😍
won’t log in?? 1/5
I’ve been trying to log in for the past 10 minutes but it keeps saying ‘go to our website and make an account’ even though I already have an account and have signed in. Really confusing app 😔😔
Seriously? No Apple Watch support? 2/5
App is good, but how about Apple Watch support?
Great music stream app 5/5
Love the app I just hope that when google migrated over to YouTube music google doesn’t screw this up
It’s ok 3/5
It has songs and all but how do subscribe and sometimes i can’t find the music i want.
Great app 5/5
I love this app, especially the feature to upload your own music. Thanks google!
Needs sound boost 3/5
By holla 123456789
I hate how there is no equalizer, but the app is astonishing looking, but enough for a 5 star rating
Buggy limited and outdated 1/5
Almost never plays an album in its entirety, it usually stops between songs.
Gapless playback is non existent.
Once it starts shuffling, it’s impossible to get it back to play in order.
It hasn’t been updated in ages. No bug fixing since a year ago.
Good but could be better. 2/5
I’ve been having issues of some songs not playing. It will load for a few seconds and just skip the song. It is quite frustrating.
Also really disappointed that there isn’t podcasts on the app and I have to use a different app.
Need an equalizer too!
Amazing but just a few problems 4/5
I love this app but it has some problems. For example it crashes a lot. Also I have this glitch that I am hooked up to my internet and it thinks that I’m offline so when I search up an artist, it pulls up my library. Overall great music app, please just fix some of the problems please😀
Constant bugs and issues. 1/5
I pay 17.99/mo. to get this service for me and my family and I constantly get issues where the songs won't play and the playlist just keeps on changing the songs (none of which will play). The app notifies me that it's having trouble playing this track right now - for every track! This has happened twice within the last month.
I don't want freebies or my money back - I want the product I paid for to work properly.
Sooo are we gonna get an equalizer? 3/5
is that something to look forward to or should I just shut up?
I lost all my music 1/5
I had about fifty musics downloaded in my previous phone on google music, but after I changed my phone none of them would show up. I want my music back :,(
This app is buggy and often quits playing music until I restart my iPhone which is incredibly annoying. I have been a long time family plan customer and google comes closer to losing me as a customer the longer they look away from these issues that have been present for years.
FFS provide an equalizer 3/5
By SSA JR
It’s 2019. Why on God’s green earth is there no equalizer setting?!
iPhone concerns 3/5
The only thing I don’t like about iphone, is you can’t import your own music. Everything has to be payed for,not good.
My favorite music app for listening random songs 5/5
Best app to listen music for free. Has good collections. Definitely worth purchasing!
Playback for streaming needs work 1/5
On an iPhone 7 on latest iOS, whenever I try to stream new stuff that isn't already downloaded to my device the playback always stops & fails like the app can't handle streaming well (usually when I go back to the app). So it freezes & then the app restarts & can play again. Is this a background data issue? Or what?
Love google 4/5
Love Google music but I'm giving it 4 stars because I can't listen to podcasts like the Android app
Sound Quality can be low at times 2/5
Maybe it’s because I have slow Internet sometimes but the sound can be a listenable: no true stereo surround, can’t hear the center vocals. When I switch back to YouTube things sound better.
I like the playlists that Google is putting together but they need to let me adjust the sound quality. I’d rather wait a little bit for the data to load and get a higher bit rate them to stream immediately.
Going, going, gone... 1/5
I liked that app initially but I am no longer using it and looking to replace it. Why would you take away the ability to move past a song with the thumbs down prompt? There are artists and songs that I know I don’t want to hear so why am I being forced to listen to something after I push the thumb down button? That’s the main feature to the thumb down option. On top of the fact that there are way too many ads pushing no name artists from genres of music I have no desire to listen to. I’m out!
Very buggy. Unusable
There's a lot I love about Google Music: I love the organization, stations, "playing near you" feature, etc., but none of that matters much with the fact that hundreds of songs disappear daily from my Thumbs Up library. I'm pretty serious about my music and I've been cultivating this list for a few years, so to have it drain away every time I open the app is disheartening to say the least. To be fair, if I uninstall and reinstall the app, all my music comes back, so it hasn't completely disappeared into the ether (whew!), but who honestly has the time/inclination to go through all that every time they want to hear some music? I'd recommend finding another app. Everything about this one is great, but this is a big enough problem to take your business elsewhere.
By Roses are red my name is dave
When using this same app on my laptop I am able to listen to podcasts. However for some reason this is impossible to do on my IPhone? This makes no sense. Fix your crap google !
WAS PERFECT now it GETS MORE GLITCHY with every update 3/5
By Scottie McNaughty
Using this on APPLE & ANDROID.
WAS FIVE STARS, but over the last year is gotten more glitchy. It WORKS PERFECT ON ANDROID. I have a feeling the glitchiness has to do with Apple not wanting competition as this app is A MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN iTunes, since you also get YouTube red & can add five people to it free... I've been so happy since I got a Galaxy, so now I only use my iPhone when my kids are playing with my Galaxy. IPHONE USERS HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE MISSING. You're spending money on crap. Apple used to be the best, now it's not even 5th place... Steve Jobs would be rolling in his grave seeing that at least 10 android devices leave iPhone in the dust.
Update needed 3/5
Keeps crashing when trying to edit queue. Please move play button on album that covers the parental advisory label. I find myself clicking both albums to determine what is what. Also please consider adding lyrics to this platform as well.
what is the point of chromecast when it doesn’t work 1/5
the app can connect to the chromecast fine but if you try to play anything it'll just load for a while and then give up. sometimes it’ll decide it wants to play but others its like nah i dont wanna. they dont even seem to care about it at all. i pay monthly for this and it cant even work half the time. utter garbage.
The experience of this app on my iPad mini is very poor. Downloads are sometimes non-functional, and overall the app feels very neglected.
This is really the only music app I use. I, personally, like how it works, but that's because I've been using it for years. It's not the same for a new user; the layout is easy to get confused with.
I have had to deal with issues with deleting songs from my playlists. Trying to delete one song will delete the song one, two, sometimes even three songs above it. It comes and goes, but it's still a reoccurring problem that I've had for the longest time, and when it comes around, I often lose songs for good, because there's no way I could keep track of all 300 of them. And, though I have 300 songs, I may end up listening to some more than others because the Shuffle option isn't that great.
Play Music is also pretty buggy-- the panels that come up for adding songs will sometimes jump across the screen. Speaking of, I do wish that there was an option to simply add a bunch of songs to a playlist all at once rather than one by one.
Lost music and memories 2/5
I can’t find old songs that I liked and want to listen to again! :( I have been using this app for a long time. I have gathered a lot of songs that I listen to over the years. I forget about songs and I like to go back into my liked playlist to listen to them again however sometimes I can’t find a song in my “thumbs up” auto playlist. When I look up the song it shows that I did give it a thumbs up but for some reason it doesn’t show up in my thumbs up playlist. This is very disappointing. I don’t know how many songs I used to like have disappeared from my thumbs up playlist this needs to be fixed!
All music gone? 1/5
All of my music just disappeared. And it keeps saying “Subscribe to play offline.” I’ve had the service for almost 5 years with no problem, time to say goodbye..
This app is bunk. It's not user friendly and constantly crashes. I shuffle my music a lot and it plays the same 45 songs over and over even though I have over 2000 songs. I don't know why I still have it.
Horrible on iPhone 1/5
This app runs well on Android but it's TERRIBLE on iOS. Constant crashes, stuff not working, songs not loading, etc. Please fix this dumpster fire. No excuse why it's this bad.
By nawa star
Why can’t I login
Need functionality to remove songs from a playlist 4/5
Great app overall. But there is no way to remove a song I accidentally added to a playlist. Shouldn't be hard to implement at all so please give us that; it's a paid service and you are competing with Apple music and Spotify.
Much better than YouTube Music 5/5
I just hope Google spends its time on refining this app rather than on YouTube Music.
By Mr Totol
Can’t listen to podcasts 1/5
By You brought bad reviews?
I downloaded this to listen to podcasts but the app doesn’t have that functionality. Weak.
Worst app on the App Store 1/5
Great service with all my favorite music. Only every time I open the app now it crashes and closes me out of it. And if you delete the app It gets rid of your entire library.
Duplicate tracks on albums 2/5
After years of frustration I just cancelled my subscription. The great feature of being able to upload my library had the side effect of ruining my experience. Whenever I own songs on an album I’m listening to I get dupes, my own and the online tracks. I like to listen to whole albums. After years of this issue I’ve found no fix. Also contributing to my low rating is that the service fails to suggest new good music. I don’t expect much from a service like this. That is, my expectations are not unreasonable. Google should be doing better. Bye.
Don’t bother 1/5
This is by far the most frustrating music streaming service I have used to date. I figured I’d give it a go only because I can’t use amazon prime music or iTunes with the Google Home. I’m ready to scrap the whole deal and just go back to my Amazon Echo.
Love it. 4/5
I absolutely love Google Play. But recently I've been having issues with my thumbs up playlist. It sometimes only shows one song in it even though there's hundreds. I have an iPhone and I'm thinking maybe this is the issue? Anyways, it just shows one song and the only thing that fixes this issue is uninstalling and reinstalling the app. It's happening quite a bit and it's a little disappointing considering I love absolutely everything else about the app!
The app is continuously freezing up on playback of DOWNLOADED songs. It gets choppy and then freezes before the app crashes. Once again, these songs have been downloaded for offline use and yet the app can’t play it all the way through. Very frustrating I’d have to say. This is the kind of thing you’d expect from a third party YouTube downloading app back in 2010. I can’t believe that Google, one of the largest companies, can’t make a streaming service work on an iPhone 8 in 2019.
Horrible to iOS 2/5
App his app you absolutely can’t use it no it’s s ok so sorry to says playlists but yeah when I try to put a song on to a place list it is known says Radio.stupid Idiotic dumb radio
Decent UI 3/5
This app works. Nothing bad about the service but for the love of (insert non offensive term) add support for Siri Shortcuts. And make a more iOS centric app instead of an Android-ish user experience. Also please integrate playlist from GPM to YouTube Music.
I can't use 1/5
By Htet Seine
Great but not perfect 4/5
I love how you can load cds onto Windows Media then it loads a copy onto Google Music but on the the app itself it has organizing issues such as track 2 comes first then track 1 is next on the list on tablets and phones but a computer then everything’s ok. I think there’s still some bugs to work out.
