Google officially informed that Play Music is going to shut down in favor of YouTube Music. Reportedly, by the end of 2020, YouTube Music will replace its Google Play Music leading to a complete shutdown.
The shut down of Google Play Music will begin in September. It is at the time when New Zealand and South Africa will lose access to the Google Play Music app. The same will be followed in other countries too in October. Until December, Music libraries will remain. So, there is sufficient time to transfer your collections.
Know in detail about the changes and shortcomings:-
However, some of the unannounced changes are on the way to Google’s music product. Google will remove music from Play Music once its streaming service gets shut down. Access to some features will also go away before the shutdown. To transfer your collection, either you have to use the transfer tool to send purchases to YouTube Music or rely on Google Takeout to export your data and download all your purchased and uploaded tracks.
Even more, options to upload and download Play Music songs through Music Manager will not be there any longer. When Google Play Music will shut down, the subscription of those customers who haven’t transferred will be canceled at the end of the billing cycle. As an inventive, Google is doing many updates to YouTube Music in order to make the leap. This includes the revamped player page, the Explore tab, smarter playlist creation, and integration within platforms like Android TV and Google Assistant.
The notice given in advance will help in improving feature list for a relatively gentle transition. Therefore, many argued that the latest service has focussed on YouTube more along with its shortcomings in its recommendations, offline mode, and autoplay, among other areas.
