I miss this app so much. It was so fun and easy to discover new music-I loved listening to this app at work and it made many long nights more enjoyable. If I liked something, it was so simple to mark it as a favourite and purchase it later. The Intuitive UI, smooth streaming and ease of use were a treat. (I especially liked the new music page with the purple neon exclamation mark!!) YouTube music keeps mixing my music with my videos, there are too many commercials, and it's hard to navigate. :(

Great, easy to listen to, music variety is lacking, but can usually find the genre I need in a pinch. The thing that pisses me off the most is almost every time I play music, it sticks between songs after about 5 songs. I notice dead air for about a minute, check my phone, and notice it looks like it is buffering. Then Play Music gives up and tries the next song, then the next song, then the next song, then the next.....and over and over. The only way to fix is by a force close. It keeps me from paying for the full version.

My favorite music app, by far. The only issue I'm having with it right now (since last update) is that in the notification panel, it will not show up unless I have the "playback sound" on in the notification settings; which is annoying because every time I hit play, pause, skip a track, I hear that notification sound. Without it, I can't even see my notification panel for the app. Please fix. Thanks.

I'm trying hard to be fair, but Google is trying to force its users into paying for its premium subscription service by downgrading its app. It's little annoyances--now you can't download songs over a cell connection, only over WiFi (good luck if you don't ever have access to WiFi! I'm deployed and cellular data is all we've got). It does sync with iTunes, when it feels like it. There's no control over when it syncs. It does provide cloud music access, which is nice.

such a pity that I am leaving this app after almost 3 years of building up a playlist! the app is great and the recommendations are also good! The app has one huge problem... you can't download it for desktop and it doesn't have an app that works with the Samsung Galaxy Watch! Spotify does all these things so I can have the same playlists on all my devices! I travel a lot so it's important to me to be able to switch from one device to the next and have my music the same!!! Sad to go!! FIX THIS!!!

This was such a great app, it was easy to navigate and great if you have songs that aren't going to be found on youtube. Which is why youtube music makes it a thousand times more difficult to manage my music! I cannot change the file information, if I close the app it stops the music, the interface is hard to get used to. I find myself constantly screaming: "I hate youtube music!" I miss this app! I never leave reviews but I simply cannot stand this change! Google, this was a choice...

It's very appealing, considering the collection of music it has. I've been taking the subscription for more than a year. Earlier I ignored it's inefficiency, and always praised the build and the convenience of this app in front of my friends. But what a let down. Omg! It keeps skipping songs, it's the worst feeling when you're listening to your favourite track and it skips in the middle to the next one, are you serious? Failing to play tracks altogether is another sad story. This is probably the first time I'm rating an app less than 3 stars. Well deserved I'd say.

R. W. Oct 16, 2020     

This was an amazing app. Overall, the best audio player i've encountered. It's the only one i could stand using for any length of time, and i loved it. Years of add free music were enjoyed, even on the road where i know there were no towers anywhere around to get signal. This is now the case of, it wasn't broke; you shouldnt have tried to fix it. The transfer to YouTube music was not smooth. Lost most of my library somehow. The shutdown of this app is one of google's biggest mistakes.

Gab. S. Nov 22, 2018     

Pretty good, IF it works. There are times when it will sit in silence until it decides to work and then randomly skip several songs. The ads are AWFUL (but I still won't pay $9.99 unless it's going to work 100% of the time). Sometimes it will still play songs that have been given a "thumbs down" and other times it will keep timing out. Very easy to navigate at least!

Plays and shuffles tracks I've bought without adverts. Does exactly what it needs to do. Ideal for running. And it's being scrapped, crazy decision! Maybe it's my age but I don't resent buying songs I like and this app is the perfect place to store them. I don't need adverts and I certainly don't want music recommendations, the radio does that. Then I buy what I like. It looks like I need to get an mp3 player to listen to my music now.

I have had google music for a long time and I have loved it! But now that they are switching to YouTube red (??) and that I very recently found out that you cant "download" songs for offline listening (you can only buy them). I'm very frustrated with it now, and have switched to Spotify for a more reliable way to listen to music while I'm off for a run or disconnected from wifi. Sad to go, but best of luck!

Sam. S. Oct 21, 2020     

Seriously, what a dream! So sad it's gone now, because youtube music is terrible, now I'm stuck finding an alternative... Like the saying goes, "you don't know what you got, till it's gone" it's very true with this app. It was my go-to music app until now. It had all the features I needed, sleep timer, playing already downloaded songs, easy selection of an "in the moment playlist". So easy to swipe away songs, or reorder them. I got so used to how easy it was. Thanks Google... 😑

Pretty good music app overall. Nice to manage my library in the cloud. Except there's one thing that has annoyed me for years! The scrolling doesn't work like any other Android app I've used. I'm used to touching near the right edge of the screen to scroll. In this app, it causes the list of artists to suddenly jump around to different letters far away from the current position. I know it's meant to do that, but it makes me scroll differently than I'm used to.

Ben. S. Nov 6, 2018     

This app is medium ok if you import your own music or pay for a full account. Radio and "I'm feeling lucky" are very good. It's pretty crappy at podcasts, especially for mobile. Yes, it tracks your progress, but there's no way to play multiple episodes in a row on mobile. The podcast app is even worse, so use this, if you're tied to google music, and hopefully they will put some effort into the ux here...

If you're a classical music listener and an android user, this is the streaming service for you. It has almost all the albums and songs I've been looking for. However, there are things that should definitely be updated. First, the app doesn't show lyrics, which is ironic because they do show up on Google. Second, the covers are squares but they are cropped to fit in a long rectangle, which makes them hard to see. Lastly, I wish this can just be merged with YouTube Music; it feels unorganized.

Extremely disappointed that Google is disabling this app. It was great that you could purchase music and it would automatically be added to your library. As well, it was user friendly and laid out in a great way. YouTube Music is difficult to use and cumbersome. My purchased music is not easily accessible and the default for searching is not my music library. I can only hope Google improves the replacement app since there is no other suitable option.

Ann. M. Oct 24, 2020     

I loved everything about this app, it was the perfext thing to listen to music on. You could make playlists however you wanted, without any unnecessary additions. No ads, and you didn't even have to pay for that feature. You could purchase any number of songs from any album. The transitions between songs in a laylist was really smooth. Simply put, it was wonderful, and I'm absolutely pissed that you're swapping it with a mediocre replacement. I'm unbelievably disappointed with this decision.

This app still has quite a few issues in functionality and performance. From glitches that do not allow it to read my own music libraries, to intrusive advertisements about bands they wish to endorse. I've uninstalled this app, and decided to go with VLC for playing my own music. If you need to stream music like a radio, there are quite a few other apps that make this seem like an AM transmitter in an area of satellite radio.

Chr. V. Sep 29, 2018     

Overall this app works fine, except for one thing. When u make a playlist and try moving songs around, for some reason the app undoes all the song movements I made. I'll have moved 10 different songs to where I want them in the playlist and then it stops for a second and all of a sudden the songs are back where they were before I moved them. This is extremely frustrating and happens very frequently. If this can be fixed that would be AMAZING.

I found this app so brilliant in comparison to any other music app out there, and have been in love using this for years ever since I got my first phone. All these years and happy memories - and now you want to shut this down?! It feels like a breakup that I'll never be able to let go of. Being able to support artists that you love by buying their individual songs, or whole albums was the jam! Now for a rebound I'll have to revert to a CD collection. That's fine. But it's not Google play music.

Des. V. D. M. Sep 18, 2020     

I like this app way better than youtube music. Easy to use and user friendly. It was much easier to listen to my music in the car, at the beach or wherever I wanted to. I am very dissapointed in you discontinuing this app. Absolutely not impressed to use an app - and pay for it - which is nit working properly!!! Continue with Google Play Music!!! Why change something that is working??? Really not impressed with this move!

Cra. 3. Feb 9, 2019     

I use it all the time and I like it. But it could use some more work. For instance we need a way to edit our albums. Like changing the artist , art and name of an album. We also need a way to move a song from one album to another. Also for some reason my playlists randomly lose all their songs and I have to add them all again. Sometimes the app just stops working by that I mean I can't click on anything the only why I can fix it is by restarting my phone or uninstalling the app's updates.

Ale. E. Nov 21, 2019     

Everything seem to be alright until I decide to change file location, all the music I moved could not be seen in the music App anymore, does it mean I can't change file location? I've tried to clear cache and data, but I won't see the music, they're my favorite music, that was why I tried to move them. Fix this,, it's annoying. Meanwhile, let me go and download a reasonable music app and enjoy my music

Rob. N. Feb 14, 2019     

very hard to use. i tried to get to my song, but when I get to the specific music that I like, it goes to a different band and song of a totally different genre and plays that instead. I am sure they did that just because it is 'free' music and artist do not like the fact that people can get that 'free' music. So the application is only made for you to get a sliver of the music and pay for it when the headache gets too much to bare with this app. Btw, its ok anyway.

Pes. Oct 21, 2020     

I'm going to miss this app a lot. I think the best part of this app was that you could still listen to your music even in airplane mode and it automatically added your songs. It was also simple to use and didn't ruin your playlist with constant ads. I'll be finding a new music player because I refuse to use Youtube Music, which is a dumpster fire btw. Not everything needs to be premium. Goodbye, Google Music. You were the best.

Cai. L. Nov 27, 2018     

I like the app well enough, but it randomly deletes my downloaded music. This is a bit of an issue for me, considering I don't generally stream music (limited data plan). A couple songs here and there is annoying, but when I lose multiple albums, and random songs from other albums? That's a bit much. Searching for music through the online feature is fairly annoying if you want to listen to a specific band or album too. The app has a very strong preference for "radio" and like, which leaves you listening to music "similar" to what you want to listen to, but not what you actually want to listen to. Over all, feeling a bit annoyed with the app, so I'm trying other options.

Kra. K. Oct 30, 2020     

I've used this app since I've got my first phone. My playlists were easy to create, music was easy to find and listen to. Ya not all the playlist were correct with the artists music, but all around this app was good. Now out of nowhere its suddenly no longer available. I've been told to convert to youtube music, but I have used this and dont like it. I wish they'd just leave it alone at the state it's at. I'd still use it if there was no updates.

Eli. B. Dec 6, 2018     

I keep trying to clean up my music library but in order to delete songs, you have to click on the three little dots next to them, which is next to impossible (and I have had this app through several phones). About 75% of the time, no matter how careful I am, it clicks the scroll bar instead and takes me to the middle of my library and I have to scroll all the way back up and start again. Usually I get frustrated and give up after a few songs. Also, there's no way to select multiple, so you have to do this one song at a time. It's INFURIATING. Please make it so you can hold down to select a song and select multiple at once. You can't delete whole albums or artists either...you have to do it one song at a time. Massive oversight IMO

Only bad thing about this app. Its glitchy. The worst of all glitches is only loading 20 seconds of a song (that I've played the full song before) but then it only loads 20 seconds of it and forever will only load 20 seconds of it. No matter what you do. This will never change. That song you love? Can't listen to it anymore. I'm moving to spotify if this doesnt change.

Sam. C. Aug 22, 2019     

For the most part, this does what I need to do for music and podcasts, and I like the interface. HOWEVER, why I rated it 2 stars is because it CONSTANTLY skips episodes of podcasts I follow - as in, they don't even show up in their listings. I thought this was a one off problem, but it's now happened enough times and I have to download the missing ones on another app, anyway, that I'll be switching and uninstalling this app until it actually gets addressed.
