Simple transfer and extra changes to Music Manager

 


Starting in late August, users will not be ready to purchase and pre-order music or upload and download music from Google Play Music through Music Manager. 


 


To ensure users don’t lose any of their content, they’ll got to use the straightforward transfer tool to migrate any purchases over to YouTube Music or use Google Takeout to export data and download their purchased and uploaded music. Once the Music Store is not any longer available, users will still be ready to upload any tracks purchased elsewhere to YouTube Music.

For Google Play listeners that haven't yet started the transfer process over to YouTube Music, now’s the time. Listeners also can prefer to delete their Google Play Music data, and that we will clearly notify all users before they lose access to their Google Play Music library and data.
