YouTube Music could replace Play Music as a system application

Google Play Music has been Google’s music application in Spain for years, but YouTube Music has come to take its place, which means that its closure is imminent, as Google itself announced weeks. The closure of this application is approaching, so that Google is eliminating more and more of its services, as is happening again now.

Google Play Music music store closes, a step prior to saying goodbye to the market application. In this situation, users have to download the songs they bought, before the application is going to close forever. In fact, this option to download or transfer the songs is the only one already present in the app.

Download your purchased music from Google Play Music

Google Play Music download data and songs

Google itself has already announced the closure of the Google Play Music music store. Until now, one of the three ways to have music in the application was to buy songs or albums, so that they were your property. Although the store is closed, the music that has acquired from it over time is associated with the account, which means that the user can download it to use it anywhere, in addition to being able to transfer it to YouTube Music.

If what you want to do is download the music, will be possible using Google Takeout. This is something that can be done by following these steps:

  1. Access your Google account.
  2. Click on Unmark All.
  3. Scroll down the list until you find Google Play Music.
  4. Check this option.
  5. Click Next step.
  6. Wait for Google to send you a link, with all the data you had in the app (including the songs).
  7. The songs are downloaded in MP3, so you can play them wherever you want.

The other option provided is to transfer the songs to YouTube Music, something that is done with the same process that Google itself explained weeks ago, which allows such a transfer with a button. This way you will be able to enjoy the songs you bought in Play Music in its substitute, YouTube Music.

The recommendation is to download or transfer the songs as soon as possible, before the imminent closure of the application. This way you will avoid problems or that when you try to do it it is no longer possible.
