YouTube Music Unable to Play Songs, Showing Black Screen for iPhone Users

iOS app only shows a blank screen devoid of any options to play a song

Sad news indeed to all iPhone users streaming on YouTube Music. A bug recently penetrated the iOS app, making it difficult for users to play their favorite songs.

Exclusively only on iOS mobile devices, the massive YouTube Music glitch diminished the navigation tools of the music streaming app, leaving only the app bar and the bottom bar. The rest and in between? Nothing but a black or blank screen.

Users are frustrated as not being able to play their songs or even browse their playlists. They can only view the Search bar, their profile avatar, YouTube Music’s logo, Explore function, the Library, and Home.

Is there a fix for this YouTube Music iOS app bug right now?

Sad to say, there is nothing YouTube Music users can do but to wait for Google to fix the problem. It is clear as day that the issue remains server-side, especially with the new app update coming in. Many users try to reinstall the app or clear the cache but to no avail.

However, some users find their way back into streaming after switching to the free account, even with the ad-interruptions. Most premium subscribers are affected by the bug.
