  • Issues cutting out and freezing

    By facetious2
    Every time I use the app (which is daily) it cuts out while playing in my car. My phone is connected to the USB cord (The cord is in great condition) so it's not a connection issue. It cuts out any time I use it, actually. Plus, the app freezes after I've opened it. Tap on Artists, tap on artist to listen to, nothing happens. Completely close out the app and try again. I've tried three consecutive times and it does not respond. A lot of times it also doesn't respond when I touch play to start the music. Version 3.38.1007 iPhone X iOS 11.2.2
  • App needs a complete rewrite

    By devonx
    App constantly locks up, pauses playback, won’t download albums, glitchy interface without a mode for easy car playback and music managing. Many reviews go unanswered and updates are too infrequent to show that Google cares. If I hadn’t drunk the Kool Aid and purchased five Google Homes I would switch streaming services. Google, fix this App. Google Play Music is a great service, but this App needs a lot of work.
  • Houston, we have a problem..

    By C.E.O yo
    So, I’ve been using the premium version of the app for some time now, and while it simply survives as a musical streaming service, it very well could thrive. Equalizer. You need a Equalizer. Just.. Just.. why? And the artist portraits, really most are just an off centered album cover. Show me accurate quality pictures of artists, or not at all. Smaller artist portraits would be great so you don’t have to scroll so stinkin’ far to get to a artist who’s name starts with G. Downloaded music is underrated for the most part, everyone should stop hating on that. SO WHAT IF I BUFFERS EVERY HALF AN HOUR!! WHO CARES!! This app is a blank template with LOADS of room for improvement, expansion, and perfection. Thank you for your time, and please.. please, please take into consideration this review, your app is a step in the right direction.
  • Eh

    The expansive library of music is absolutely amazing and I love that it’s included with YouTube Red. But the app itself is buggy and lags quite a bit. It definitely needs an upgrade and soon. Google please listen! I love this app and I will keep it until my 3 month trial is up but I hope it’s updated for real soon.
  • Pretty great but miss songza a little bit....

    By JessssssAnderson
    Not sure why they didn't keep stuff the same as with songza when Google bought it. It was SO GOOD. This has become good too, bit not quite as good.
  • Nice. Just don’t add songs while driving!

    By Langgoose
    I like GPM. I was a subscriber to Spotify for a few years. Then I switched to Apple Music for a few months, then amazon, and thereafter returned to Spotify. Originally, I signed up for the free trial of Youtube Red and learned that GPM was part of the package. I invested time into learning the new app, and I have been a customer since dropping all other services. My only complaint: I want a faster way to add a song to my library. In Spotify, I select the plus symbol and it simply adds the song to my library. In GPM, you have to select a tiny little ellipses symbol and then select the option “add to my library” from a menu. The complaint may sound trivial but it makes sense to me. When I am driving, I have my phone on the console, and when I hear a song I like it is nice to simply select the plus symbol in Spotify. However, using GPM, there is no such convenience. To add a song in GPM while driving you might wreck your car. I don’t recommend adding a song to your library using GPM while driving. Please, google, come up with a solution. Add a plus symbol or something. Otherwise good job.
  • Buggy; stinks compared to Songza

    By drjwr
    Buggy and musically shallow, world's biggest ad company, posing as a music friend, chewed up a unique music provider and spit out monetized crap.
  • Really great, but one major bug

    By Akshay95014
    I’ve been using Google Play Music for a few years now, and I use it through the website on my computer and through the app on my iPhone. It used to work perfectly but now, if i “thumbs up” a song on the browser, it shows up on the Thumbs Up playlist on the website but it does not show up on my iPhone’s Thumbs Up playlist, and vice versa. I’ve tried manually refreshing my app through the settings panel, but this has no effect. Usually a few weeks after I’ve added a song to my library or given it a thumbs up, it finally shows up on my iPhone app.
  • Many bugs

    By smw0428
    Cannot add music to my library in the app, the desktop website doesn't reflect the addition and the song never appears in "Recently Added" playlist
  • Collaborative Please!

    Desperately in need of collaborative playlists. That is the one area play is lacking from spotify. A darker theme would be nice as well. The ability to thumbs up a track with a button or gesture on the headphones would be nice as well. Though that may be a hardware concept.
