Download your Google Play Music library or transfer to YouTube Music today


#At the start of #December, the #Google #Play #Music website and mobile apps officially stopped working for all users worldwide. #It marked the biggest milestone in the transition to #YouTube #Music, but there is one last step. #Today (#December 31) should be the last day to transfer your #Play #Music library to the replacement #YouTube service, or download using #Google #Takeout.

#Transfer or download your #Play #Music library

#Visiting music.google.com or the #Android and iOS apps today provides a “Transfer to #YouTube #Music” prompt. #This is the easiest way to switch away from #Play #Music, and includes: uploads purchases, playlists, stations, albums/songs saved to your library, likes/dislikes, and billing information.

#Alternately, there’s the option to “Manage your music” by deleting your music library and/or recommendation history. The third option is to download your music library using #Google #Takeout:

A list of the tracks, playlists, radio stations, uploads, and purchases in your #Google #Play #Music library, as well as your playback and search history.

#Playlists, radio stations, and track information will be provided in CSV format, while your previous uploads and #Google #Play purchases will be available as MP3 files. #You can choose to receive the download link via email for local storage, or have it saved to #Google #Drive, #Dropbox, #Microsoft #OneDrive, or #Box. #This will allow you to store audio locally or switch to another music app.

#Play #Music transfer deadline

#Back in #August, #Google said that the ability to download or transfer your #Play #Music library would be available for a short while after the app shuts down.

#But don’t worry, we will be holding onto things like your playlists, uploads, purchases, likes and more until #December 2020 to make your transfer to #YouTube #Music easier. #Users who wish to transfer their music libraries from #Google #Play #Music to #YouTube #Music, can do so through #December 2020, after which their #Google #Play #Music libraries will no longer be available.

#However, the deadline for doing either of those things should be #December 31, per #Google’s original timeline, and #YouTube has not provided additional guidance beyond that. #After that, the company plans to automatically remove all #Play #Music user data.

#It’s possible that there will be a grace period before the two export options are rendered impossible by the deletion. #For example, other parts of #Play #Music — desktop #Music #Manager app, #Play #Music store, #Assistant speaker integration — were gradually deprecated. #But to be safe, #Google #Play #Music users should download or transfer today.
