I am a youtube premium music member and downloaded a playlist to my iPhone SE, yet the music won't play when I'm offline. Reinstalling the app didn't help either. Does anybody have a fix? Thank you! KW

Solved! In the settings, I went to "downloads" and turned on "Download an offline mixtape" and that seemed to have done the trick. 

Why the previously downloaded playlists didn't play when I was offline is still not quite clear to me but now I'm happy it works. 

I'll let this post hang around since it might help somebody else as well.

I download playlist or complete albums. When I am offline the app crashes. I am not able to access the music while offline. I have to connect to wifi and then I am able to play the music.

I'm having issues also! My music will not play while offline, and my downloads are supposed to play in my Google Music (offline) and NOTHING. Downloading and listening to music was the main reason I actually paid for a membership. A FAMILY PLAN at that. Smh. I'm not happy. 

I just want to be able to use this how it is intended to be used. Also, I already went up and down my settings and my PHONE settings. Still nothing. Smh.

I'm in the same boat, were it not for the fact I'm always online I'd have switched already to a better service.

Clear that Download doesn't work. Like everyone else on this thread, it stops for me when I do not have Internet (basically worthless).
This is a product flaw and cannot be fixed with the product.
The only fix is to do what I did and cancel your subscription and use a product that works.

I am having the same issue. I can play two songs at most in offline mode before it starts buffering. Why are you taking up disk space on my phone if you are going to stream the music anyways? Come google, you are tech champs. Reading files from disk is not that hard, stop trying to pass everything thru your servers!! 

I’ll have to cancel at the end of my trial if this keeps up, and that’s a shame!!

Hallo You tube!!!!!!! Are you there ??????. Everybody is complaining about this same issue. Don't make a statement that you can download music and listen to it any time if it is not the case.

Reply with a fix please. Various forums on the net complains about this

When offline if you press your personal YouTube picture icon thing in the top right it lets you go to downloads. 
It’s a bit annoying but it will work. I have 100 offline tunes, it updates most times I connect to WiFi. Hope this helps

I glad that I was using just the trial of it. Can not playing downloaded music offline is a complete disaster. Gonna get back to the spotify as soon as trial ends.
