  • (2021-04-13) sharibat: Does not work. Enabled or disabled, the video on Youtube Music keeps displaying.
  • (2021-04-11) Omar Meza: I know that extension is new, but that doesn't mean it s functionality. Really works
  • (2021-04-01) A D: BEST 1. I tried numerous similar apps, nope. This is the only one that deserves your installation, usage and donations.
  • (2021-03-31) R M: Overview is ambiguous i.e. at the bottom it mentions live streaming and under that conditions to block video but it's unclear whether this relates to live streaming only or all videos. Options appear on a list on my computer but with no option available to select or de-select; maybe it's an issue with having an intelligent colour scheme i.e. black background.
  • (2021-03-23) tss 1: teleio!!!!!
  • (2021-03-22) Parampreet Rai: A great extension and the only extension that I had installed in my chrome. Thanks a lot genius developer. You are just amazing.

  • (2021-03-07) Aaryan Pednekar: Works Great as Intended, only thing it messes it with is SponsorBlock, Segment doesn't get skipped when Music Mode is on! Hope this gets fixed!
  • (2021-02-24) Ok Mm: really great; works as intended. it was hard to understand how to use "for this tab only" cuz the ui was confusing to me .But when i figured it out, it is awesome. maybe its because i didnt read the description or the options well
  • (2021-02-23) Vlad: Изменить кнопочку на плеере Youtube так, чтобы она отключала-включала видео-поток навсегда(а то каждый раз при смене песни видео-поток воспроизводится вновь); а также убрать никому не нужный огромный список сайтов, где работает это приложение в управлении расширениями. И будет 5 звезд, а так только на 4 тянет, но расширение хорошее, лучше аналогов, которые есть.
  • (2021-02-04) iheb draouil: Great app for when your favorite song has somewhat of an nsfw cover art. Also, offers per tab control which is a great addition. Very well done!
  • (2021-01-28) Hat Mann: Please move the quick access button slightly to the center so the distance between all the buttons is consistent.
  • (2020-12-20) Osuka: Achei que só dava hide no vídeo e o uso de processador iria ficar igual mas realmente funciona. Parabéns!
  • (2020-12-17) Jay Rodriguez: Perfect addon to reduce bandwith. I wish it was available for firefox.
  • (2020-11-29) Alwin Showi: I used to use use Audio only YouTube extension. But this extension solves every single problem the other one had. I'll recommend this over Audio only YouTube any day.
  • (2020-11-18) Μαρία Αποστόλου: Εξαιρετική εφαρμογή, συγχαρητήρια
  • (2020-11-16) Aadil Syed: It's very good so far. Current features include: blocking the video track while retaining the audio track on both youtube.com and music.youtube.com. - Hiding video thumbnails. - Hiding user avatars. - An ad blocker for youtube.com and music.youtube.com as well! I'm a free Youtube Music (YTM) user, and I'm receiving nearly all the same benefits as a YTM premium user at a full cost of $0!

  • (2021-02-28, v: Khayrul Islam: Room for improvement
    💨 When you access different website I saw that you have considered "/*youtube.com*". I think here you can add 1 more options that is "/music.youtube.com*" so that people can use your extension for youtube music only. 💨 Otherwise you can add an option to add url by user.
  • (2021-01-29, v: Amar Kawale: additional features
    A feature that can configure extensions' options as per website or page i.e. settings' for youtube music can be different than for youtube itself... Youtube can have hidden thumbnail not video itself whereas youtube music can have video blocked and not a thumbnail of playlist.
  • (2021-01-13, v: Shreyash Ninawe: thumbnail in place of blank space
    The image of thumbnail could be placed, in place of video. It's a minor thing, but it could make the page look better in terms of aesthetic. Thank you, Great Extension.
  • (2020-11-12, v: Aadil Syed: YTM music is currently broken (12th Nov 2020).
    In the extension options, I only disabled the video feed for Youtube Music (YTM) in the Progressive Web App (where you can click to 'install' YTM, it runs a simplified version of Google Chrome). Now, when I play my SuperMix playlist, the songs are constantly skipping to the next one. I'm seeing a lot of 'Skipping unavailable video' error messages in the bottom left of my screen. I'm going to make a video on this so y'all can see this. Video: https://youtu.be/LMBOEYb09i0
  • (2020-10-12, v: Paro: Add an option to enable music mode only on Youtube Music?
    Could you add an option to block video only on Youtube Music but enable video on Youtube?
  • (2020-08-11, v: Origami Phoenix: Playback Error
    Hello again, hope you're doing well. Working fine yesterday, but now when Music Mode is active for the page itself, no matter the configuration, it will cause "An error occurred. Please try again later." Activating it after the video has started will proceed as intended. Changing videos will cause the error. There has been no change in my use of other extensions.

  • (2020-06-16, v: Mark Strobel: No Audio
    When your extension is enabled, the audio disappears. I believe that your extension conflicts with Audio Equalizer and Amplifier Chrome extension. When I disable this equalizer and enable your extension, the audio is fine. The audio appears to only disappear when the equalizer is enabled. I really would like to keep the equalizer enabled because of improved sound quality. Is there any way to remedy this conflict? Thanks.
  • (2020-06-15, v: Mark Strobel: No Audio
    I installed your app today. However, the app not only disables videos, but also the audio. The video/audio return to normal when I disable your app. How can I disable videos yet keep the audio in tact? Thank you.
  • (2020-06-08, v: Origami Phoenix: Videos do not automatically play
    Whether in a playlist or general youtube, Music Mode requires you to manually press play every time the page changes. This extension was working fine before (approximately a week ago), so I do not know what has changed. Ad-Blockers such as Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin have no impact on this.
  • (2020-03-29, v:2.5.0) Dan Giese: Causes livestreams to crash
    Doesn't work with livestreams, crashes the video and causes a "An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: XQplBRB-_E3Fb7CC)" message to display. Example: lofi hip hop radio - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qap5aO4i9A
  • (2020-03-10, v:2.4.2) W Boumans: I highly recommend changing you permission
    I highly recommend changing you permission to youtube.com only, not ALL websites. This makes me (and other people) very nervous and wont be using this extension.
