Google will officially and finally kill off all traces of Google Play Music on Wednesday, February 24th, so it’s time to switch to YouTube Music…
There’s been a number of pronouncements about the demise of Google Play Music. Those date back to mid October 2020, then again in late October of last year, and even into early December. Although this journey has been well-documented, those clinging to the legacy GPM streaming service will have no choice but to switch over to YouTube Music or move onto another platform.
Google Play Music Customers have Until Wednesday, February 24th to Transfer their Libraries to YouTube Music
For several months, Google had warned music streamers that it would kill off Play Music — sometime in December of 2020 — and replace it with YouTube Music. The tech giant even offers a transfer tool for a seamless transition. (Google has also gone so far as to proclaim “Google Play Music is no longer available” when people attempted to access the legacy web client or download the mobile app.)
Now, any procrastinators must take immediate action because the ultimate end is coming, with the last chance being on Wednesday 24th. If the switch isn’t made, all content uploaded to the cloud locker, purchases, saved playlists, stations, albums, songs — as well as likes and dislikes — will disappear forever.
