Overall it's worth checking out. I like it. Pros: Slick design, easy to use and the sound quality is great. So far as I can tell, it also has a comprehensive digital music selection. Cons: I haven't figured out a way to save songs queued to play as a playlist the way I can in GMusic, so if that feature doesn't exist, it is sorely missed. Also, someone on the backend needs to figure out the metal radio stations. Trivium radio station just played Shinedown and Papa Roach next. No. Just. No.
A great alternative to itunes... I'm not as old as this is going to sound, but the prices for digital music is a little steep especially considering that you are paying for something you can never really physically hold in your hand like a CD or a cassette. Since the industry no longer makes singles, being able to buy the few songs separately vs. the whole album is great. Would have given 4.5 stars since it's not a huge issue.
Needs expanding and refining The app works fine, the music can stream at high quality, but I wasn't able to find some new releases. Also, I couldn't choose specific genre's. Just a search box, some recommendations, a few new releases, and many "stations" to listen to. I think Amazon Music could be great one day, but I'm used to having access to every new release, and multiple categories, and subcategories to choose from with a certain highly popular competitor. Just saying. To be fair, the app, and new pay tier is still in its infancy.
Nice UI but.... Absolutely beatiful UI compared to most competitor's. The huge downfall for me is the library. The other service I use has a lot better Library for the same price.. Oh, and where's your Family Plan for a few extra bucks. I'm allowed 6 users at any given time for $15 a month with Google Play Music
Slowly taking away songs... This isn't a bad service at all but they should have started with the pay model from the get go. Songs that were available for free before are now for paying customers only. Still a lot available for prime members, but this trend will only continue and more songs/albums will be held behind the pay wall. Customers wouldn't be upset if it was this way from the beginning. If you're going to pay for a music service then go with spotify, which was already much better.
So far so good I normally use Pandora but I've been getting tired of the same old songs. I thought I would give this a try and I really like it. Their music has more variety, the sound quality is good. Not to mention unlimited skips and you can add songs you like to your favorites and create your own custom play list. Cool stuff.
