Earlier today, Google released a detailed timeline that shows the official dates of the shutting down of Google Play services. The initial rescind of the service will start from New Zealand and South Africa in September. However, for users in other regions, the revoke will begin in October, and by December, the service will be shut down completely all over the world. Also, later in August, Google will stop accepting purchases for music.
A few months ago, Google Play Music allowed its users to transfer almost everything from their libraries including, playlists, albums, artists, songs, uploads, and even the purchased content to the new service, which is YouTube music. The main reason for Google Play Music to shut down the service is the popularity of its YouTube music service.
However, Google committed to issuing several notices prior to the official shutdown of the service so that users don’t face any inconvenience. Though, the users are able to use the service until the official shut down. However, if a person buys a new android device with Android 10 loaded in it, YouTube music would be pre-installed in it in place of Google Play Music.
