Review from Mike Zybko
Work in progress, still Time for an update with this Chromecast/Google Cast hullabaloo. Much improved UI than previously. Album art has improved vastly. Chromecasting was pretty much what I was looking for, but the next step is social casting like with google, where collaborative queues can used like in the YouTube app with Google Casting. It isn't up to par with the Netflix and YouTube apps with this respect. When I switch to a different device, to cast, the current song stops. Overall keep up the good work and keep improving.
Who couldn't love it? After paying for Pandora for such a long time I was looking for a more focused app, *enters the stage* then I switched to Google Play. Seriously though, this app is amazing as you can listen to any music you like, anytime, for only $9.99. Not only can you listen to it anytime but you can download it to your device. Let me get to the best part, they make playlists, just like Pandora, and you can download those playlists! These playlists automatically update with new songs as well! Wish I could post more!!
GS5 I love the app, it has excellent sound quality compared to Pandora, and the amount of necessary ads are completely reasonable. My only problem is that I have to pause and resume the music very frequently to keep it playing. I think it is primarily a bandwidth problem with VZW, but I am not sure. I also wish you would improve the number of songs per station to be infinite like Pandora.
Most recent update (10/27/16) failed to fix ruined podcast functionality Podcasts STILL no longer advance automatically, respond to swipes or the "next track" button. This is apparently due to the fact that when you select an episode to listen to it generates a "playlist" of one instead of queueing up the feed. Samsung Galaxy S6. 10/27/16
Moto G4 Plus I've been using Play music for 2 years now. In the beginning, the app was very slow and sluggish. Google has done some really good work to improve the quality of the app. I used to rely on third party apps earlier to play music but now I don't feel the need for it. Good work.
Little slow It is a good music playing app by google but it's little slow on my phone (Samsung galaxy j2). Hope i can find this app smoother next time.
For a paid subscription app, is ok.. For an app that is aimed at being a paid subscription service it definitely needs work. Content is good though Google needs to work on getting new music faster as it is usually a few days before it updates on play music. The UI is nice but it constantly gets laggy even on new phones, and don't even get me started on the desktop UI that is just trash in terms of fluidity. For something that is paid for every month, I expect better.
