    The thing I want the most is to bring back Play Counts.
    I agree, I miss this as well.

    Yes, I'd like that, too!

    Not that it is something I do often, but I was using my Raspberry Pi 3 yesterday and decided to listen to some music. Youtube Music was not a good experience. Every track had to buffer for several seconds before it would start playing, and there was apparently no pre-fetching happening, because it paused after every track before the next would buffer enough to start playing. Google Play Music on the other hand, had no such issue. I was listening to The Wall, and the pauses between tracks made it useless. Switched to Play Music and had no issues all evening.

    I wonder if that's specific to the Pi. I haven't noticed any issue with gapless playback on YT Music on my Chromebook or Android devices.

    The Pi 3 is a bit weak-kneed, and only has 1GB of RAM. Every generation has been faster than the previous one, and I guess the 4 has at least a 4GB option. I don't think it's the processing power needed to play the music, but Chrome I think doesn't like the limited processing power and RAM. I've been thinking of installing na Android build on it, but after reading on it, I think by the time you install Google Play services, it isn't very fast. I still think it would probably run the Android apps better than the web apps run in Chrome.

    YouTube music is a mess. Trying to play your own uploaded music is a chore, has less options and is hidden round the back of the YTM app almost like Google only put it there because they had to include it. I've since found iBroadcast which at least gives some resemblance of a decent music app that GPM used to be. I wont be using it at all and given the history of 'sunsetting' apps I knew it wouldn't last forever but at least expected an app that would be half decent to replace it.

    My latest issue is that Google thinks I want to watch music videos instead of listen to albums, so they automatically replace audio tracks with videos in my play lists. Which is no big deal on some and a nightmare for others. Oh well, Play Music was great while it lasted.

    Did you already try turning on the "Don't play music videos" toggle in the YT Music app's settings?

    In all honesty, my next phone is going to be at least double capacity, and I am going to play my music locally. I tried the YT app and I think it's rather horrible.

    Overall, a downgrade.

    I actually still prefer the native YouTube app - not the YouTube Music App. I now switch between both.

    Don't worry! I proofread my posts at times and there are still mistakes! Or the one time I don't proofread, I go back later and find silly typos!
