Sometimes glitchy and no Apple Watch app. I’m switching to Apple Music


I have been using Google Play Music for a few years now. The choice of music amongst all services is good enough for me. I stuck with Google Play as I have subscribed to other services. I have been waiting (for years) for a Play Music Apple Watch app that I can download music onto so I don’t need my phone. I’ve been waiting too long now. I’m reluctantly switching to Apple Music.
The Play Music iPhone app has got more buggy over the years. In the UK we have missing feature compared to the US. The Aug playlists are repetitive and slow to update. They have taken away some Top X Playlists from us too. SaaS should continually improve, not degrade.




This app used to work so well. Yes the app is a bit ugly and in need of a decent refresh, but it worked!

But in the last few weeks it’s got almost impossible to use. Music cuts off multiple times during songs, whether streaming or downloaded. An album says it’s downloaded, but actually hasn’t. You switch from another app, and the music stops. You switch back to this app, wait for a few seconds while it unfreezes the pause/play button, click play and then it freezes again when you switch to the app you were using. Some apps are unusable if you want to listen to music.

You also have problems where downloaded songs show up multiple times in albums or albums are missing songs. And that won’t change no matter how many times you delete the album or song and re-download.

I’ve tried sending feedback through the app but either no one’s home or they just don’t care about the iOS app.

So in summary, avoid unless you like a buggy app and the frustration of constantly stopping songs. (And yes, the app stopped playing music while I wrote this review).

In need of some TLC


Has this app ever been updated? I’m on an iPhone X and not only does it look ugly, as it is not supporting the notch or thinner screen display size, it is just glitchy. It plays music fine most of the time but sometimes will cut off the end of a song and album art doesn’t load properly for some reason. Please get on with a redesign and update for iPhone X or I’ll have to choose an alternative! I always use Google Play Music in Chrome on my Mac as well!
