We’ve reached the end, it appears – Google Play Music isn’t anymore. After telling us in the summer that they’d slowly shut down Google Play Music over the final months of 2020 with the service completely shutting down in December, we entered December this week and Google kept their word.
Several of us have continued to have access to Google Play Music all through this phased shutdown, whilst a bunch of customers lost access in October, however today, that all changed. Firing up the online Play Music website on a number of accounts, as well as the app on phones, supplies the image on the top of this post that reads, “Google Play Music is no longer available.”
Of course, you may still switch your libraries over to YouTube Music, the service that’s replacing Google Play Music. Google probably won’t allow you to hold off from doing that forever, so consider doing it immediately if YouTube Music is your next music app. If not, well, Google will let you download your entire music collection or delete it.
It was a good run! Google Play Music was an extremely good music service that just wanted some love from Google. Instead, an exec decided YouTube must be the future due to its music video library and pitched a pointless concept that’s forcing us all right into a scenario the place now we have to accept an inferior solution to the one we used for so long.
