Many playback issues, can't restart via headset, strong internet connection. In case of connection loss, it should start over by itself not require me to click, same with songs that give issues, just skip them.
Also no next/previous song available via double clicking the headset buttons (works on Google play) so you're forced to take the phone out of your pocket.

I am getting it too - my Galaxy s9 and laptop don't do it but a tower, galaxy s8 and galaxy s7 is doing it. Very frustrating. YouTube will load with data but when Wifi is turned on it won't play the movie. I have tried clearing cache - updating browser - installing updates - restarting app - Everything has been restarted or checked for updates around 100 times - trying to uninstall and reinstall but is taking a really long time. I have done all the troubleshooting stuff a million times already. What is going on - this started suddenly on these particular machines within this last week.
