If your YouTube Music app is crashing, try the following steps to resolve the issue:

  • Uninstall and reinstall the app
  • Clear app cache and data
  • Restart your device
  • Check your device for system updates (in device Settings)

Only YouTube, of all the apps I subscribe to and run, crashes, and it does so at least every half hour. I get a "Network disconnected" message and have to reboot from my app home page. My download speed is 25 mbps. This happens all times of day.

every time I open maps, YouTube main app, or any other app sometimes, the media buttons stops being useable to relaunch the music. Also if I dont immediately get back to tje song after 2 minutes it closes

Telling you YouTube. Persistent notification. That's all you need. Hit play button should trigger YT Music even if never played for hours and no notification.

I'm spending one month on Premium to decide if I'll jump ship from Spotify. So far I can tell you it's not been a great experience. Many annoying bugs, they're all known to you.  Randomly pausing, error message telling me "your account is being used on another device", when it most certainly is not. Disappearing downloads. Clearing cache, reinstalling, nothing helps. Be honest and call this app a beta! It's not worthy of my hard earned cash.

Is there an answer to this issue yet? Also paying for premium services and have attempted all the fixes in this forum. Have cleared cache, updated to latest software, restarted, deleted and reloaded.  Using iPhone X.

Same here. Crashing often without notification. It just stops playing when phone is locked. Google music never had this issue on multiple devices (Lg G2, Nexus 6P, LG V30). Currently using LG V30. 
This is the issue since the beginning of me using YouTube Music. More than a year this is not fixed. And Google is calling this "Premium"....Very annoying.
