    Finally, after a couple years worth of updates this app finally had some substance. View your own playlists instead of the random mix tape. A great addition to Google Play Music since you can find damn near anything on YouTube. Now, is this had a widget that'd send it over the top! Keeping this time. Way to make some real progress, Google! Full Review

    This app is useless unless you have a YouTube Red subscription which I'm not about to waste money on. In the free version you can't turn your screen off, there are multiple ads on videos, and you can't even go to another tab without the music cutting off. Worst app I've ever wasted storage on, it's just another way for YouTube to steal your hard earned money. Full Review

    I like the app allot. It's really useful and is a great substitute to Spotify. I just wish i could keep the YouTube red without having to pay and i wish i could choose what songs go in my offline mixtape they'd maybe it a give start if you did these things. Please and thank you Full Review

    The negatives outweigh the positives. I have a you tube Red subscription so no ads. I can listen to music and artists that I couldn't find on other music apps. However, this app killed my data. I only really use it on my 20 minute commute to and from work and I went through 7g data in less than 2 weeks. It's does create a station for you based on your previous activity but it's not that organized. Glad i gave it a chance but will be switching back to the other music app I've been using for years.

    I stopped using Spotify to try out YouTube Red and It crashes all the freaking time! It doesn't matter if the app is add free, you would have to turn it back on again and again all the time cause it stops while reproducing the videos. Worst app for music ever! Stupid app!!!! It kept crashing every single time when I want to listen or watch music videos!!! 👎👊 Full Review

    What even is the point!? First issue is that it doesn't even support streaming in my country (South Africa), secondly, as mentioned by others, it doesn't work with the screen off, it's is simply a waste of time unless you have a YouTube red subscription... Might as well just use the regular YouTube app, can't believe I wasted my time on this. Full Review

    Now I used to have a 4 star rating on this app up untill I got YouTube red. Upon getting it now all of a sudden through the last 2 months whenever I open the app if I don't select a song to play within seconds then it displays "no connection" and completely stops working. This happens on both WiFi and data, but yet I don't have this issue with any other app including the actual YouTube app. Full Review

    I understand that it's free or 10$ a month, which is way to expensive, but at least let me disable video in the free version. I can't afford the price of data as it is, and now the richest company in the world wants me to burn through it like nothing. Full Review

    Most of the time this app is great. But sometimes I've been having problems with it taking too long to load content or for no reason it jumps during the play of songs. I also get the occasional message telling me that this app is making my phone run too slow. Full Review

    Overall, it's great. I have Amazon unlimited, Google music, Spotify, Pandora, and I use this more than any. The only issue so far is this offline bug, where it will randomly claim there's no internet connection. You have to restart the app at that point or listen to downloads. Full Review

    I don't see the point of this. It doesn't do anything that regular youtube doesn't do already. Actually its worse because its missing a couple of features. Needs work. Full Review

    I really like how it organizes all the music/music videos. Categorizing ect. but how good is it if the fidelity is lower than the regular youtube app? I don't get how I can cast from yt music get all these were clicks and pops then got the regular ass yt and get crystal clear audio. Love the aesthetics and usability of yt music but ironically... not the music. Full Review

    This app is really cool; you can literally listen to almost every song you can think of! Unless nobody has ever put it on YouTube, you can listen to it. I love being able to actually search up the SONG, not a "station" where you wait for months to hear the song that is the title of the station, like other apps have done..... Also, you create playlists and you can actually listen to them. Unfortunately, there are ads every once in a while, and you can't download or listen to the songs offline or off the app unless you have YouTube Red, which costs real money! Overall, great app!

    I don't get why you got rid of the cast t.v. screen option, or at least it's moves because I couldn't find it. It was one of the best features of the app. Please bring back 😓 Full Review

    I thought this was supposed to be ad free. This is definitely NOT ad free and I will never watch a YouTube ad. I ALWAYS back out of the video and restart it until there is no ad to interrupt me. Fu©k YouTube and fu©k anyone who advertises on YouTube. Full Review
