Ratings and Reviews
Subscriber here but app needs improvement
I enjoy the app for the most part however on my iPhone 6 it often will stop playing music when coming out of lock screen for absolutely no reason I can see. The app has done this for the past few revisions and on iOS 10 and now iOS 11. I also feel the app to be somewhat laggy in caching art and also stuttering frames even over wifi than other streaming apps I have tried.
The price is better value however with googles vast resources I expect a better experience.
I think the app has definitely improved and getting better visually and it’s UI is nicer than ever but the way it stops playing music for me is almost a deal breaker in this app category. I hope you fix this bug
Very good but needs fixing...
I really like this app. It’s easy to use and easy to download music. Although, there is a bug that’s driving me crazy! Every so often the music will just stop playing. I don’t know why. I think it started for me in iOS 10 but it’s in iOS 11 as well.
Even though there’s no music playing, if you go back into the app it displays the button to stop the music, but with google play music, it should display the button to play when stopped. (Press pause to pause, and play to play.)
The bug usually occurs when out of the app, and when you just start playing music, but lately it’s happening almost every other song. Please fix this bug! This review would be five stars if it wasn’t for the bug.
Very poorly optimised for apple carplay, sometimes the now playing tab won’t appear and then the steering wheel controls won’t be able to skip through the music and the iphone app will have to be used which is fine when passengers are there, but impossible when driving myself.
Also poorly optimised for apple ios11, sometimes the music stops when I take a call and when i press play, the music on my iphone will take over instead of restarting the play music. Not sure if this is an apple problem or a google problem though
