Google warns that all Android Auto users who have Google Play Music should transfer their data to YouTube Music, because the company will no longer support that app.
Google stopped supporting Play Music at the beginning of December last year, but luckily you can export before it’s too late, and if you have Android Auto you should hurry.
Android Auto users should transfer their music data
Google is starting to warn all users much more regularly to save their last data stored in the cloud of Google Play Music before they are deleted forever. It has been one of the most used music applications in our Android Auto. If you have special playlists and stuff you should transfer them to YouTube Music.
Specifically, Google is giving us a deadline: February 24th. If you still have data such as playlists, uploaded songs, specific purchases, or tracks stored in the Google Play Music library, you should export them before the deadline.
With this move, the company wants to eliminate Play Music and focus entirely on YouTube Music.
Google’s sending an email to Google Play Music users: “On February 24, 2021, we will delete all of your Google Play Music data. This includes your music library with any uploads, purchases and anything you’ve added from Google Play Music. After this date, there will be no way to recover it.”
Unfortunately, YouTube Music does not offer the same experience of listening to music behind the wheel as Google Play Music did back in the day, so it will take some time to get used to it.
