    I pay to not see ads and to play music in the background. I downloaded Red app because its just the song and not video. No need for a video in the background. But when comes to playing in the background this sucks. I can not get through 3 songs in a roll without it stopping. Let's get ap to function property since its an paid ap. I will have to go back to usually Google Music as no issues there. Full Review

    It's a wonderful ad player! It does everything in its power to show you advertisements at every corner. Unfortunately it's not perfect; occasionally it will interrupt your precious advert with music. Like come on, just force your corporate fodder down my throat already. Full Review

    I wasn't sure what to expect. I was using a trial Google music membership but i didn't like it at all. But my son really wanted YouTube red so when I found out Google music came with YouTube red I checked it out and WOW! So far I am impressed. Still not into Google music but I love everything Google for the most part so for this to be part of Google is impressive. To get to the point my kids love this and amazingly so do I. Goodbye Spotify, sorry. Full Review

    As good as spotifi or any other stream service. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have over 1.000.000 high quality and data free music! I use the app everyday and you even get first month free. Your missing out if you don't have this app, no ads, no worries. 5 Star! Full Review

    Whats the point of this app when you can just make a playlist on youtube. Why did you put youtube red on here now I hate you for this. The only reason I downloaded this was so that I could listen to music in the background while I play games or write, now you want me to pay money just to listen to videos in the background, tell me what is the point of this app then, so you can navigate through your created playlist. the only thing that is different is that you get recommended music which is cool I guess.

    There have been multiple songs that I used to listen to on Spotify that I can't find on here. The audio quality is bad, the album art is sometimes inaccurate, song volume isn't normalized, playlist customization is clunky (you have to add or remove one song at a time). overall, spotify is way better.

    Everytime I switch apps to send a text or whatnot, youtube red disconnects and I have to reconnect to wifi/data or songs won't play. Besides that, this is a good app. But I pay to be able to close the you tube app and still have streaming music :/ Full Review

    My initial review was 5 stars, but the redesign takes a crucial function away. You can no longer change the variety settings on generated playlists or stations. This is resulting in music lists that don't fit my tastes. Please fix this. Full Review

    Dakota Wolfinger Published date: January 15, 2018

    WOW. Anyone who is looking at this review, JUST KEEP THE YT APP. This is the same exact thus as YouTube unless you pay money. It doesn't even let you play the music when you turn off your phone. And, every song starts with an ad. AT LEAST I CAN LISTEN TO ADS. Uninstalled. Disappointed. Full Review

    Wasn't what I wanted or expected. Does not download, does not play when the screen is off, still has distracting adds. Just stick to the regular YouTube app and save yourself space on your phone. Very well designed with smooth user interface though. Props to the programmers. Full Review

    Melody Rymer Published date: December 23, 2017

    I'm very disappointed with the fact that you changed the variety option. I can't stayed that my stations are not personalized or that when I want to listen to just one certain artist there is a bunch of other music added in. Plus now on my station there is a ton of songs I don't like. Full Review

    Not a problem to me but for this app to be worth it you gotta pay money monthly. Also the streaming to tv icon is annoying. I often misclick it and piss my roommates off because it interrupts what thwy are watching. Is there a way to get rid of it? If not can it be implemented please? Full Review

    I like the app especially considering the variety of music I now have access to. My only serious complaint is that I wish the app had a sleep timer function. I like to listen to music at night and sometimes end up falling asleep so I wish I could set the music to shut off automatically after a certain period of time passes. Full Review

    I used to hit my station all the time but since there's songs in that I hate, Im having trouble letting u guys know that I don't want to hear that one, but still hear the rest of the station, like there should be an option to remove a certain song out of the personalized station. Peace. Full Review

    Rather use regular YouTube app, it doesn't give me add after every single video and this app closes when you shut the screen off so its the exact same as YouTube only with more ads. Pointless Full Review

    Currently there is a problem at least on galaxy s7 edge. For some reason alot of the videos I have liked do not play anymore. They will just not load. While on the normal youtube app the exact same videos do play. It is really annoying because I can't listen to half of the songs on the app. This has been a problem for a couple months now and it still has not been fixed. Full Review

    The purported feature that this app allows me to turn off my screen and still listen to music doesn't work at all; I can't even have the app running in the background. That feature is a big reason for me to have signed up for YouTube red in the first place. Full Review

    Hunter Marshall Published date: December 12, 2017

    This app is great, but there is one glaring issue. Randomly, songs on my playlists simply disappear, they are listed as unavailable, but there is no rhyme or reason. They're still on youtube itself, so it's not a copyright thing. It's just really annoying when almost half of your music playlist is simply not listenable on the app for no discernable reason.

    Casey Kaemerer Published date: December 22, 2017

    Its ok. I mean you get a great selection of music but some are bad recordings. Also it has a tendency to replay the same songs over and over again. I have also found that if you accidentally add a song to the wrong playlist, there is no way to delete it. I pay for this service and expected better for the cost. I'll keep searching for better apps and will eventually cancel my service. Full Review

    Could be great.. . I like the amount of music available, but seriously lacks connectivity. Why can I not stream to my PS4(Spotify does) and why does it not run in Android Auto(Slacker, Spotify, Pandora and Google play do). Full Review

    Naomi Olsgaard Published date: December 11, 2017

    I really like the app, but there is a bug. When I close the app, my music will play for a bit and then stop. I would really like this fixed. Also I like being able to see ahead in the queue but what is the point if I can't remove the songs that I know I don't like? Why do I have to wait to listen to them before disliking? Also I would appreciate it if I could like or dislike artists Full Review

    Ok, I have only written one review and it's this one. I love the app and think that it's great does a lot for being free, but why do the creators of it keep getting rid of the ability to choose how mixed the music is. That's the only problem withit Full Review

    Juan Serrano Published date: December 27, 2017

    I really like the idea of it. The app works good most of the time. The only problem I have with it is that it will say there's an error with all my downloads and they won't play so I have to go and delete all my songs one by one and download them all again. This usually happens once every 1-2 weeks. As you can see this gets really frustrating. Other than that I really like the app. Full Review

    Yo quit taking songs off playlists I made, because then I have to go and re-add all the songs I put on it. I'm not claiming the songs as mine but the playlist that they make up I do and I don't ever remember seeing anything against making playlists. And quit saying the video is unavailable when I can find it in the "vanilla" YouTube app and not this pos YouTube music app. Full Review

    Stupid. Removed the variety button so now I have to deal with trash. I'm paying for this service, why am I STILL being forced to listen to stuff that was easily avoided by having the variety slider. I don't understand this. Full Review

    Patrick Jayawardene Published date: January 7, 2018

    A music app that doesn't allow you to listen when your screen is off, essentially the normal youtube app but this time, just music videos. The competition is better and so is the original youtube app. Who thought this was a good idea? Full Review

    Nathan Hawks Published date: January 12, 2018

    Pointless. Does absolutely nothing that can't be done with regular YouTube app. Face it, you just want to turn off your screen or read something while music plays. YouTube is the only company in the universe trying to charge you for that. Start working on this app's tombstone now, Goog. Full Review

    Audio starts and stops for no apparent reason. Not worth my time to troubleshoot let alone pay for it. I spend too much time helping IT troubleshoot at work. If car manufacturers had as many failed safety mechanisms as app developer's have apps half of us would be dead or maimed. Full Review

    Charlotte Melendrez Published date: January 6, 2018

    I never had a problem with this app, not until they deleted the variety button so I could either have less or more of that content. It makes me feel restricted and no freedom whatsoever. Granted, yes, you could make playlists and such, but I just miss that variety button and I just can't stand it. Please fix this problem so the majority of us could be more happy. Full Review

    I like the app, but in the recent update they took away a slider that allowed for a more varied music experience. Please bring it back, it was the one thing that made it better than other music streaming apps. Full Review

    Cassandra Perez Published date: December 18, 2017

    It's nice to have access to any song, but the stations could be better. When I play a station I want a variety of music and not just songs I've listened to. When I play the pop music station for example, all it plays is songs that I have already liked. Change it up. Full Review

    Spectre Avenger Published date: December 21, 2017

    Useless without a YouTube Red subscription. You have to keep the app open and it plays videos. So.... it's almost exactly just YouTube. In other words, pointless and will be uninstalled immediately. Full Review

    Benjamin Miedema Published date: December 20, 2017

    I swear it's one step forward two steps back with you guys. Why did you take away the variety switcher? I like being able to change if I listen to all of the same artist or if I listen to a wider variety of music. It was one of my favorite features of YouTube music. Full Review

    The app is fairly worth he money. There is just one bug I can't stand. My playlists have the same songs on them. I'm listening to the same music all day everyday. There's also no way to personalize it. Full Review

    Algorithm sucks over400 songs liked and I have it set to play the widest range of music, but it just rehashes the same 30 or 40 songs. There is a lot more wrong but it would take an hour to go over it all. Full Review

    An app I have no problem paying for. Enough said. ;D ***Update 2018*** considering dropping due to the removal of diversity feature.. in which you choose whether you want to hear music specific to the song/artist chosen or a broader group of music .. Now Im forced to see the same songs regardless of different artists or how many times I hit THUMPS DOWN.. smh sad as it is amazon prime music is winning Full Review

    I never had a problem with this app until recently. They took away the variety button which kills it for me. I really don't understand why it was nessicary. Now I have to sift through garbage. Does anyone else notice that the app also keeps playing unliked songs in your personalized playlist? I feel this app no longer caters to my needs. It has become a another 'one size fits all' music app, in a world filled with terrible music. Full Review

    In general I love this app but there is a bug as well as a change that has really turned me off lately. Songs that have always been in my storage playlist and my light songs list still appear in the list but they simply do not play. You have to find a different version of the song and store it to your playlist and remove the old one which is kind of a hassle. It's very strange that a song that played one day we'll still be on your playlist and just not play the next day. Also in the latest update YouTube remove the variety control which was a feature appreciated by many users. If you scroll down through the latest reviews you're right away find people asking why a feature that they liked was taken away. Full Review
