The end of Google Play Music in Spain is imminent, as the company is focusing its efforts on YouTube Music. Although this application is great, its approach to subscription has been an important step backwards for free users of Google Play Music, not being able to enjoy the freedom that the old service did offer them.
It seems that little by little Google continues to improve this aspect and add functions for free users. A few days ago we learned about the integration with Google speakers, and today we received another important news.
YouTube Music now lets you download playlists of your own music
One of the best features that Google Play Music had was its private cloud, which allowed us to upload up to 10,000 songs on our property to listen to or download them on any device that had the application. YouTube Music a few months ago that added the ability to transfer music from one service to another, in addition to allowing us to upload music to the computer.
For this feature to make sense, it was necessary to be able to download the playlists, something that today was only possible for YouTube Premium subscribers. It seems that this limitation is coming to an end, and it is that the company is deploying the possibility that anyone can download its playlists, even free users.
It is important to note that the add-on for free userssticks exclusively to your personal music that you have uploaded to the cloud. Downloading music from the platform remains exclusive to subscriberspremium, and if we download a playlist that contains our own music that we have uploaded and tracks from YouTube Music, only our songs will be downloaded, a connection being necessary for those from YouTube Music.
