Google Play's Music Store closed, big shock to users

So if you've been collecting a music library over the years, do not hesitate to download your purchases and get your music moved! After this, YouTube Music will be the primary music streaming service of Google. It could be very doubtless that YouTube Music would be the exclusively Google music streaming service beginning subsequent yr.

Google Play Music store's webpage displays a message announcing that the service is no longer available.

With the new Apple Watch app for YouTube Music, you can perform all the standard music playback controls like play/pause, skip to next or previous tracks, cast, and like songs. The app also has update visuals that showcase album and playlist artwork.

Further, a new playback interface displays song-related information, and the Android TV home screen presents a new YouTube Music row, to quickly find the next song. This means that you can no longer control the app with voice commands even when connected to a smart speaker. Starting today, the all-new YouTube Music app is available on the Apple Watch.

If users do not want to transfer to YouTube Music, they can download their data via Google Takeout, or delete it through Play Music's account settings. A few months ago, Google started sending alerts to its users about the music app being shut down. If you decide not to do any of the above actions, all Play Music data not transferred or downloaded will be deleted after a certain period of time. For Wear OS users, the worst part of this transition was that Google Play Music supported Wear OS.

The kicker is that not only can't you see the option but you cannot tell your Assistant to play any music from Google Play Music.
