I hate it 1/5
I’ve recently got a new phone iPhone SE to iPhone 8 and got YouTube music because I loved it on my old SE and it says I’m from another country and it won’t work and it sends me to YouTube and YouTube drains the battery life really quick
If only it played downloads properly 2/5
I download the music so I can listen to it at the gym with my iPod. But if you pause it while not on WiFi, and then press play again it won’t play sound. Unless you restart the song. But oh, you can’t just go back to your downloads no. You press play and it says oh you can’t stream You need go go go downloads. I was playing from downloads the entire friggin time. It makes me so annoying and makes my workout miserable. Might have to cancel my subscription.
Song recommendation algorithm is bad 2/5
My housemate listens to lots of Spanish music. I never listened to or liked songs in the language. All YouTube Music does is recommend Spanish songs. It’s really annoying.
YouTube music 5/5
I was a little bit Leary with YouTube music but after I started using it I found how easy it was to look up music and easy to play requests . Now I use it for my DJ Service it’s a excellent product ! DJ Amp
i love it but... 4/5
By g dog 22$!
i love this app but i wish i could exit out of the app or turn off my phone and the music still plays.
Love utube music 5/5
Best of all music apps!!
Don’t like that I can’t edit playlist 4/5
I can’t move songs in the order I like them and keep them that way. I can only do it when the songs playing but if the app refreshes or I want to hear a different playlist I lose the way I like to hear the songs
Bad app 1/5
You have so pay.Nobody likes this app
Was cool to have YouTube think of songs I like that I haven’t heard in a while
Be more user friendly 3/5
When I download a song and put it on a playlist, it doesn’t show on that same playlist on my downloaded section. Just play the downloaded song all the time if I have it downloaded. I notice it streams even if I have the song downloaded, I have to go to the downloads section, which doesn’t reflect my playlists even if they are downloaded.
You Tube Music 5/5
By Aja Lou
I love this! Everything y’all could ever want to see and hear is here at my fingertips. I love this app!
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Seriously, there is no point to get this, you get some playlist and hear ads more than the music, Spotify has so many more great features that you should download for
Awesome but a little pricy 4/5
Good but 13 dollars a month
They need to separate YouTube and this app so stuff I don’t wanna listen to stops popping up. Also there’s a song I got tired of and tried to remove from my liked songs that won’t go away wether it’s unliked or thumbs downed. Super frustrating.
Vary glitchy 1/5
By Daniil nik
For some reason when I downloaded it to my iPhone 11pro the app become very glitchy and the statins do work it’s alway plays random songs no mater what station I choose
Service is good, app is.. meh? Serious bug needs to be addressed 3/5
By adis handanovic
The subscription (YouTube premium & music) itself is solid - I love having no ads on YouTube and the music service is good. As others have mentioned, it will repeat songs that you add to your "thumbs up" anytime you start a radio playlist, even if the genras are totally different. For example, I personally listen to tons of EDM & modern hip hop. If I were to start "Drake" radio, my queue would come up with a good amount of EDM songs in my Thumbs up playlist. Pretty annoying.
Also - this is a SERIOUS bug - the app itself has gotten very quiet since a recent update was pushed. For the past few weeks, I've been going crazy because I've noticed my phone's media volume has gotten considerably quieter - about 70% of the regular volume level when on max volume (using an OG iPhone X, iOS 13). It's been incredibly frustrating to deal with, having taken my phone to be serviced by Apple to troubleshoot the problem, which they couldn't figure out. I just now realized that it's the YouTube Music app itself! This needs to be addressed ASAP. It's unbelievably frustrating to deal with the lowered volume Level while driving & using headphones.
The UI isn't the best either. It takes multiple actions to queue songs, visit an album, and trying to seek through a song while having your queue pulled up is near impossible - unless you have an actual stylus as a finger!
Disappointed that the design team approved this UX. It's pretty much near awful (even the ANCIENT Google Play Music app is miles better!) Works slightly better on Android, but the issues are pretty uniform.
Please add a playlist feature 5/5
This app is my favorite music app, especially with YouTube red, the only problem I have with it is when I download my songs I’d like to be able to put them in a playlist if I so feel like it. I like the pool of all my downloaded songs but then sometimes I want to add songs to a playlist but I can’t.
Basic as can be 1/5
Does google actually care about this app at all. It works but lacks useful things found in other music services like Apple Watch support. If YouTube music wasn’t free with my YouTube premium subscription there is no way I would ever even consider this app or service.
Siri Support 4/5
Would rate 5 stars if siri support was added. (“Hey siri, play ___ on YouTube Music”)
Pausing on apple watch doesn’t work correctly 1/5
Pausing on apple watch causing the app to close itself on phone, and it doesn’t work well when the mobile network reception is weak.
Making me to close and open the app when this happens, frustrating.
Fix this 1/5
I had 35 hours worth on music, went to play then and all my music was deleted. Another problem is the fact that I have (had) songs on my playlist that would get removed and I have no way of telling what song it was and we all know the worst thing is knowing you had a great song at one point and forgetting what it was called. I’m ok with them being removed I’d just hope you tell me what the freakin name of the song was.
Audio only mode not working 2/5
When you toggle audio for one song it DOES NOT stay persistent for the next. What happened in this update???
Please fix it.
All music lovers should have this app.
I have YouTube premium 5/5
By Lord Noodles
And they threw this in Well worth it. Also I can’t see my review I’m writing for some reason so let’s see how this works out.
By ya neighbo jo
This is good
Background play 1/5
Why do I have to pay for background play when I can download any other music app and it already has background play installed. Also most other music app subscriptions are cheaper
Why did you get rid of playing music in the background now I need to pay.
Only one bug in this app hate 5/5
Love this app! This king of all the apps but recent update play plays video automatically when i play next or turn on my screen that is sucking all my data plz plz plz fix it
Extremely counterintuitive app 3/5
Going back to Spotify because of the following :
1. The interface is very difficult to use
2. Playback management : searching for songs is so difficult
3. Can't control one device using another one
4. Queue management : playing one song adds multiple of its own due to which I can't control my queue. Bulk operations are difficult
5. Navigating to my liked or downloaded songs needs more than 1-2 clicks
This app is just too difficult to use! I primarily purchased YouTube premium to get away from ads but there's no point if the peace from not having ads is countered by frustration from the poor app.
P.S. 3rd star only for the content on YouTube.
PLEASE READ!! 2/5
i LOVED this app at first it was awesome and super convenient to play all my music. i wasn’t going to buy the premium after my free trial because i don’t mind listening to ads but i had no idea that you couldn’t listen to your music and open another app or turn off your phone at the same time which was super annoying. there was also a very large amount of ads that got super annoying and frustrating. i’m getting spotify now. what a waste of time now i have to make all new playlists too.
My Two Cents 4/5
I really enjoy this app. I like how it’s how easy it is to search for different artists and music. I also enjoy the fact of not having to deal with ads or that I can close the screen on my phone without the song stopping. I do wish that the “Your Playlist” would update with newer songs related to the music I listen to on average. It’s usually the same songs over and over. I also don’t like that it will completely change after listening to one type of song. For example, I mostly listen to Rap/Hip Hop but as soon as I play one Disney song for my kids the whole playlist gets flooded with Disney songs.
Although it takes data, I’m really impressed and happy with it!?
Falcon Hinkle 5/5
Great choices and varied music and playlists . There is a full range of old and new ! Easy to use and tracks my preferences , recent listening and favorites . Efficient , effective and enjoyable !
Love it! All great music
Random closing 3/5
I don’t understand why my music needs to buffer if it’s in the download section, it’s beyond frustrating
What happened 5/5
Why can’t I listen to music when I close app anymore?
I love this app. Wonderful selection and great sound.
It plays All my songs
What I think about YouTube music 5/5
I think YouTube music is better than regular YouTube and it’s more experiencing
Quality bug 3/5
This is a great app and all but now I’ll have a song going and it will close by its self while it’s still playing and I can’t switch the quality of videos in settings or on videos now, please fix this.
This app is horrible. 1/5
This app is good for about the first week then it starts screwing up and it’ll really make you mad.
Daniel & Brandy 5/5

Love it 🎸😂⛈🥫🧁🎯🎯
Now Playing Window Keeps Shrinking 1/5
Not sure if this was something changed with the last update, but every time I pick up my phone the now playing window keeps minimizing.
It’s annoying. I pick up the phone to see what is currently playing, it does this. Creates more steps to do what I use to do with a glance, Now I have to reopen the window to see the song title and artist (in larger font).
Can we disable this with a setting?
Low value for price 2/5
For a paid subscription, YouTube will seriously need to work on their app. First of all, the app doesn’t feel like a paid product, second of all, the bugs! For some strange reason the song will “play” with out moving the seek bar or any sound.
The album count is very low which means for music they might not have an album or the actual song, they will play any of the YoutTube results, which means you’re at the mercy of the uploader to provide a good quality upload.
Pretty Happy 4/5
I am impressed with the selection and how well it refers new music to try. I just wish I could save the playlists it generates for me.
Don’t waste space on this app 1/5
I do not like this app because it doesn’t stream like it says
Video jukebox originator 5/5
After having to lay on the couch after work hitting the start button every time a song I liked came on VH-1 and having them all taped over by my daughter (3) with Barny; iTunes U even in its beginning form was a great thing! Hey!
What’s the point 1/5
Okay seriously what’s the point of this app. Especially if it’s not going to let us close out of the app and still listen to the music. I can just use regular YouTube to listen to the music I want to listen to just like I am in this. Also I’m not going to pay $13 dollars a month just to be able to close the app and listen to music. This is stupid
