    Can be frustrating I've been subscribed to GPM for over 3 years now yet I find it gets buggier the older this service gets. Plays one song then pauses about 80% of the time on my Chromecast and car's Bluetooth. Please Google fix this or I'll move to something more reliable. Full Review

    Everything is amazing, but nothing is more annoying than barely swiping left or right and removing songs from large playlist, and you can't remember what song you removed. If the undo button laster longer than one second it would be much better. Full Review

    This is a very good app and is my primary music player. However, it does lack a few important features. One of the most important ones, in my opinion, would be to see the length of an album/playlist when selected, as available on the PC client. Another important feature, which is available in the browser on PC, would be to see the number of times I have listened to a specific song, which is currently not available anywhere in the app. Hopefully these are implemented! I enjoy using Google Play Music for all of my music needs, though the app is missing several features that are incredibly useful. Full Review

    There is no match for the Google's art in any kind of field. The app features a damn attractive user interface and provides unmatched quality of Music. But the only thing that is pretty irritating is the adds ! Common team, it's Google Play Music from Google. Being such a great company, I don't think including the adds in Google apps fair at all. I hope the team will fix it the adds free version to provide the users an unmatched and tremendous Music experience. Full Review

    Needs some help in it's interface for folks with bigger hands. Why to easy to delete songs from lists when scrolling up or down a playlist, and the box to undo needs a longer timer. NEXT would be 5 🌟 for this alone the ability to change track without unlocking or waking the mobile device, such as use the long press or double press on the volume rocker to change the track. Some other small things but for real google buttons that only have one function are so 2005! Full Review

    great app.. does what its meant to do. but it would be great if you guys could bring an equaliser icon to the player or make it more accessible because whenever i need to change the equaliser option i have to do a lot of scrolling through the settings tab of the app. and the biggest feature i look forward to is getting the lyrics for each and every song while its being played, that would really make it my fav app. Full Review

    For a default stock app I don't want to be forced to subscribe to listen to my music. I set it to 'Downloaded only' and that then shows at the top in red. I don't need my configuration settings to show. This I think is done so you accidentally click on it to turn it off. Also when I search for songs there is no easy way to play them all without manually adding each one to the queue. It could use further refinements but this would help in making it a usable player.

    It's fine, could be better. That swipe to delete is still incredibly irritating, if there was an update I haven't received it. Wish it had way more filters and sorters and the the equalizer wasn't hidden And that it would stop trying to sell me radio and monthly services, I already but all the music I like from them. But over all it's functional, just wish it was better. Full Review

    I really like the selection of music and the smart stations. But the application leaves a lot to be desired. Here are some features I would love to see in 2018 : - lyrics for current song, ideally with current word or verse highlighted - see full album art on the play screen (currently cropped based on screen size and orientation) - ability to rate (up/down) from the lock screen, currently requires unlocking the phone - the up/down buttons change from being either side of the play controls in portrait, to both being on the right in landscape, please make it consistent Full Review

    I have been hunting for the best Music Player app for the last 6 months and then I finally got to know about the upload feature in the Play Music. I uploaded my whole library of music and now it is beautiful. I have Android TV and I can play music in that too. No need for plugging a USB into it. Play music is too good. I don't know why it has only 3.9 rating. 👍It auto update the missing metadata. 👍It shows YouTube videos for the uploaded songs. 👍It auto corrects the song if your song is missing the whole length. Best KUDOS to Google....🤘 Full Review

    About a week ago, Google Play Music had a major update and now when I go to my music library it doesn't show any of the music stored on my phone (except for 10 songs I added after the update.)  If I view the contents of the Music folder on my SD card I can see all the songs Google Play Music can't find and I can select any of the songs and open it with Google Play Music.  But I want all the music that's actually on my phone to show up in my music library so I can play it all on random shuffle. I do not have a subscription and do not intend to get one.  I just want to be able to see songs I already own that are already on my phone. Full Review

    I like being able to listen to my own files as well as things in my library online, but I'd like a greater distinction between them. I'll never forget when this app deleted my files on my old phone thinking it was part of its cache. I'm wary now and have caching disabled. The music service is pretty good for me. It'd be better if album art weren't cut off. Full Review

    Here's the facts: It's basically the same as all the other streaming services, BUT you actually get some additional features like unlimited song skipping, and you can rearrange the playlist. It's Pandora on crack! Also, the offline music features are really great for road trips or saving data. I find myself constantly chromecasting with this. It's awesome! 1 issue: there's no way to shuffle in Android auto mode. That also goes for voice control during Android auto mode I cannot force it to shuffle a playlist, this seems really strange to me. Full Review

    Some feedback.... While this app is great, it is lacking a few features. Firstly, within a playlist, there is no option to order by song name, artist name, album, etc, like you can on the desktop version. This is a pretty basic feature on a music app..... In addition, when you add albums to playlists using the app, it stuffs up the ordering of them, unlike on the desktop version. Lastly, it would be great if there was an option to only display google play playlists and not include other playlists on the device. Thanks. Full Review

    Would it be possible to update the companion app for Wear so that it can connect over Bluetooth as well as wifi for those of us who don't have a sim card enabled watch? I've played around with the iHeart radio app and it doesn't require wifi to play online music, it just has to be connected to your phone. I have the Asus Zenwatch 3. I'll definitely add 2 more stars and update my review if you can. Full Review

    Imagine that you buy $1000 Android smart device and you have a lot of music on your SD card from your previous smart device and you want to listen on your new smart device with Google Play Music. You need to make a few simple and easy steps: Spend another $500-600 or more for computer, Download your music from your smart device to your computer. Install Google play music on your computer, drag your music to google play music and you are all set. Very easy. I've never been so upset since 2010, when I buy iPhone. And I threw it into the trash once I realized that you are so much restricted. And you ask your self "Why I spend so much money? A lot of money." Every single music player in this world have an option to create playlist with the music on your device and play it , except Google Play Music. Please tell me honestly why? Tell me one good reason, really good reason and I will buy a computer to play my music on my Android device with Google Play Music Full Review

    It came stock on my phone, and has all my music, but I have an issue with it. It doesn't give me an option to boot any of my music over to my external drive, period. I've got 5 gigs of music, on a 16 gig phone. Do the math with it needing maybe 9 gigs for system data, and all the other things that come on the phone, and I'm easily within half a gig of my limit at all times, with a mere 6 extra apps that didn't come stock. I love thr app otherwise Full Review

    All songs from local file 'Music' is lost while songs from local file 'Download' remain. Songs are still accessible via File Manager. Cut and pasted songs from Download to Music and player showed duplicates of all songs. Player skips to next song endlessly when accessed via notification bar. I've been a fan of Play Music all this while although PC and streaming is not available in Malaysia. Hope for a solution soon. Full Review

    1) can only skip track on Bluetooth with my VW golf on my new Pixel 2 XL, cannot fast forward or rewind. My Nexus 6 had full functionality on Bluetooth with my car 2) should add folder/storage view as I have over 20gb on music and cannot find tracks with how it sorts things normally. Still needs folder/storage view. Or if I go to storage on my phone. I should be able to add songs to playlist from there. 3) I changed the name of an album and now it's missing and I cannot find or add it back. I have tried clearing cache and refreshing in app Full Review

    The app is good but why there are no international charts in top charts and why english language option when we try to browse station. Its easy to find regional or Hindi songs but no statons or charts for english and even the new releases are filled with hindi songs n albums mostly with very very few international songs. Why is it so hard to find english songs when they are all available. I would suggest google to create some international stations n add english language in charts and browsing. Full Review

    Was 5 star until I tried to assign songs to playlists. The options buttons to assign to playlists is too close to the scroll button. 11 times in 5 min I went from the songs starting with c to songs starting with s. Used my left and right thumb, then a stylus. Same results. Threw phone across room and seriously debating why I have premium family. Full Review

    I love google play music. This app is really amazing and I've been a user for the past four years now. It's wonderful to have access to my entire music library wherever I have an internet connection. I also love that the user interface inside the app is very intuitive. The only reason I docked one star is the app keeps disappearing when it updates. It says I need to enable it as a part of my goggle play account. This is very annoying. This has only been happening on my Samsung galaxy 7 edge. When I had other android devices such as a Nexus 5x, this never happened. Full Review

    Simplicity, intuitiveness and song selection lacking. No easy way to listen to all the songs from a particular artist, just the most popular ones. Why can't Google allow listening to all the songs by a certain artist? It's not even intuitive on the web interface and I don't know why. The developer team needs to look at the iTunes platform and see why it's so popular and highly rated. Full Review

    It is ridiculous that if i buy music from this app i am not allowed to download it without using a 2nd, 3rd party app. If i buy music i wish to own it , amazon music is far better in this regard and i buy all my music from them now due to this. The google play interface is better but i will never buy music from this platform again unless i can actually own the music i buy. Full Review

    Google Play Music is a decent music player. It doesn't have the largest catalog, but it's great for podcasts. Sometimes I wish I didn't have to hit the back button a dozen times to get back to a menu, and OFTEN I wish there was a 'repeat' option! I listen to a lot of ambient music and I wish I could just loop it. But as a podcast player it's great. I used to use another app that has gotten worse and worse with time. But now GPM is pretty much all I use, so I hope it continues to improve. Full Review

    Google has given up on all the apps for their services. Outlook is better than Gmail, Spotify's app is better than this. This UI is awful. Please give an option to remove the scroll bar and I'll come back from Spotify. This app has a stupid scroll bar on the side. It makes the app unusable because it gets in the way of scrolling. Just give people an option to remove it. Full Review

    I love that I could upload my existing library. However, I really want to subscribe to your service but the UI is terrible! And the radios are poorly matched. I get that it gets better with more play time, but your algorithms need a lot of work. If you put more effort into like how Spotify does, I wouldn't need to use them. Full Review

    Google assistant, when I tell you to play a specific song that i own in my library, please don't give me a friggin' radio mix of your choosing. Ive been keeping my personal music organized on Google Play for years, but now they're pushing their subscription service so much that trying to play my own music from it is a pain. To the point where the search bar up top doesn't even show results from my own library anymore. Please, Google, some people still want to listen to their own meticulously kept music playlists and not yours. Full Review
