The end of Google Play Music is near

After a long period of uncertainty, the time has finally come: Google has officially announced the end of Google Play Music.

That Google Play Music would disappear and that instead YouTube Music Google's streaming service had been known for some time, but we now know that the transition will be completed before the end of this year. Existing Google Play Music users can transfer their playlists, recommendations, and purchased music to YouTube Music. From the end of September it will no longer be possible for consumers to purchase music via Google Play Music and the service will be phased out completely in the following months.

This change will of course also affect the distribution of your music: at the moment you can still choose both Google Play Music and YouTube Music when sending your releases, but we will soon also remove Google Play Music as an option.

Are you not yet familiar with YouTube Music? Then check the apps for Android of iOS or the web version.
