SAN FRANCISCO: YouTube, the world’s biggest online video-sharing platform, has announced to replace Google Play Music in December this year.
YouTube announced that after months of efforts, they are now ready to migrate Google Play Music users to YouTube Music. The transition will take place over a period of one year starting next month.
Recently, Google added a few features such as explore tabs, song lyrics, and the ability to migrate music, tastes, and playlists from Google Play Music to YouTube music in order to make the transition seamless. The video-sharing platform will start taking over Play Music in September, beginning with South Africa and New Zealand.

Users in the region will not be able to stream music through the Google Play Music app from next month. The change will apply to other markets in October, and by December 2020, YouTube Music will ultimately succeed Play Music.
Moreover, starting later this month, users would not be able to purchase more tunes on the old app. Subscriptions will automatically be canceled as well. However, playlists and libraries will not be erased just yet. Google will give users one year, i.e., till December 2021, to effectively migrate their content from the app before deleting it completely.
