You can use one YouTube Music at one location at the time, meaning if you listen to music on your phone, you cannot start listening to music on your computer.

I have a paid membership. The music will pause on the desktop app frequently. I'm not playing music on my phone but the app is open in the background and this happens. Sometimes the music will pause on its own without this warning as well. I'll be testing if this continues even after I have closed the app on my phone.

Same thing is happening on the app on my iPhone 8. This is the only place I use the account but it keeps pausing.

I fixed it canceling the account. Now I use itunes and the music is running smoothly and without interruptions.

I am encountering the same thing..just started happening today.  As far as I can tell, it's only during when I try to cast it to my TV.

Just started happening today while casting to TV and won't stop. I get through one video and it throws up the error message. Last time this happened I thought there was a way to log out of all accounts but didn't see that option today. Users should be given more Intel on where the account is being used and the option to logout everywhere.

Same here - used Google Play Music in my car on the morning commute and then switched to desktop player an hour later, and the playback stops after every goddamn song. Hitting refresh in the browser will fix it - for one song...
Didn't have this problem before switching to Youtube premium. This move has been nothing but a disaster so far.
Seeing posts from February here is appalling.
Do something, Google - you're going to lose subscribers really fast otherwise!!!
