      This alternative is disputed. YouTube Music is still a legitimate alternative to Google Play Music, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      YouTube Music is the worst possible alternative. Main feature buying music is missing!

      While pushed by google as a replacement for Google Play Music, it's missing a lot of basic functionality that GPM has, and is buggy/has issues with some core functionality that it does have - No dedicated offline mode, no genre category, no clear queue option, no sleep timer or crossfade, issues with autoplay, videos playing when you've disabled them, issues casting, songs disappearing from lists.

      It's Google's evolution to Google Play Music, so it should be the first alternative shown in ALTERNATIVE.TO
