I have just got my premium membership now but I still can't play music on the background. Is there any setting that I should change? Does it depend on the phone that I use? I have a OnePlus 5t, please help. Google user. Google Employee. Felicitas - TeamYouTube. That's one of the most basic things that should be on a music app. I think not, plus your charging more than the other main 2 competitor's.
I wanted to see how the YouTube app works with out signing up for the free trial this is a definite turn off. I was looking to see if YouTube Music app on ios is better which it should be with regular YouTube and all but this YouTube Music app is a joke just because I can't really test it without subscribing to a subscription first.
YouTube Music App! Johnny Doe. I also wanted to complain about the background play thing. If you have enabled this feature for Google Play Music users, and in your road map you intend to move Google Play Music users over to YouTube Music, should you at least make a soft landing for the users? When free Google Play Music user migrate over and find that they cannot play their favorite music can't be played in the background, guess what happens?
Diamond Sword Why the fuck do I need to pay to listen to music with my screen turned off? Bunch of money hungry bastards. Luciano Italo. Nick Morjana. Ive had a Google Play Music subscription for years now and I have always been able to use Background play on my phone.
I switched credit cards and forgot to change my payment method so my Google play music account was unsubscribed for a short period of time. After I changed my payment method to renew my Google Play Music account, Youtube suddenly does not have background play on my phone anymore. Why is it doing this? Richard Perez. Rasmus Grove. CMP What's the point of having a music app if I can't fucking exit the app and continue listening to the music--for FREE.
It's bullshit. I'm deleting the app and just sticking to listening to music via the original YouTube app, since I'm basically getting the same thing on there as I am on here, but for free. Zita Kocs. Does this thing work for anyone? I am trying the free trial on an iPhone and I can't get it to keep playing once I close the screen This was the only reason I would have spent money on a youtube app This question is locked and replying has been disabled.
