To find helpful reviews, you can sort them by most helpful first, newest first or have the highest rated show up first.

What we need from YouTube Music, two months on

48

I had high hopes for YouTube Music. They have not been met.

I'm a big music fan. I was happy when I could finally listen to that music with the screen of my phone off in the YouTube app. I was even happier once we got a dedicated YouTube Music app launched for users like me who could honestly listen to YouTube for hours.
