I am getting "song is unavailable" in my playlists. There is an exclamation mark on the album art and is greyed out and not able to play. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it again but nothing. It's not just Android its on every device and not just one song but more a good chunk of music in my playlist. They aren't Youtube videos they're songs from an album. What is the cause of this because I'm paying for a music subscription that songs aren't able to play correctly.These songs work fine on Google play music.

Also there are a lot of music missing from Youtube music that are GPM and Spotify.

Thanks

I'm having the same issue. And I have like almost 20 songs that are not available on my daily listen playlist. I would be adding one by one over and over again and it would work for couple hours/days (I'm not sure) but after that, it gives an error message again.

This is very frustrating. Google, what's going on?!

Same here.  I have several whole playlists that, when accessed thru YT Music, have only one song that's actually available to play.

Anyone figure out what the deal is? I don't understand why moving to a paid service should make more things unavailable... It's getting really annoying though, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.

Yep.. this has been happening for a while now. Definitely something wrong with the app. Going to move to another service because this is not what I paid for. Live and learn I guess, I wont be recommending this app anymore. I can't believe support has complete ignored this issue for months

If this were my primary music app this would indeed annoy me and I wouldn't continue with it.  Hey Google how about not charging people to be beta testers for your services, because that's what it feels like we are at this point.

YoutTube did not think this through. Classical music and sometimes jazz will never have an original source because every recording is different. They are only considering pop and hip hop.

They need to error on the side of MORE AVAILABILITY, not less. It's no big deal if people have YouTube videos in their music library. What is a big deal is customers paying for premium but they can't access their preferred rendition of a piano concerto.
