YouTube Music will fully replace Google Play Music in December 2020, at which point Google Play Music users will no longer be able to stream from or otherwise use the Google Play Music app, the company said.
Though December is the final deadline for being able to export from the Google Play Music app, your ability to stream from the Google Play Music app will end before then.
In September 2020, users in New Zealand and South Africa will be the first to lose access to stream or use the Google Play Music app. The rest of the world will lose their access in October.
However, Google Play Music users will be able to export their playlists, uploads, purchases, likes, and more to YouTube Music. Users also can use the Google Takeout service to export their data and download their purchased and uploaded music.
