The service is living its last days. Google Play Music will permanently cease to exist on February 24. The firm begins to warn all those who have not yet recovered their data. Everything must disappear at the end of the month.
Last warning before final shutdown! Google Play Music is well and truly the end. And there is now an official date for that: February 24, 2021.
If the music service stopped at the end of December 2020, Google had left some time for its users to turn around, save their songs or transfer them to YouTube Music. But obviously, many have not yet taken care of it. So, the firm has just sent a final reminder email including 9to5Google had a copy.
After February, there will be nothing left
As of the end of February, all information associated with your Play Music account will be deleted. This primarily concerns the lists of your songs added to your library, radio stations, your listening and research history, but also information on your purchases, mentions, etc.
On February 24, 2021, we will delete all of your Google Play Music data. This includes your music library with all of your songs, purchases, and anything else you’ve added from Google Play Music. After that date, there will be no way to get it back.
To keep this information, Google has provided a tool, Google Takeout, which allows you to download an offline copy. Otherwise, you can use the inbuilt tool to migrate to YouTube Music. And if you had carried out the operation beforehand, but made changes, it is possible to update its YouTube Music library by transferring its data one last time.
If you don’t have the patience to wait until February 24 and let Google do it, seeYou can now go and delete your music library yourself and some of your information.
