Once the Music Store is no longer available, users will continue to be able to upload any tracks purchased elsewhere to YouTube Music. YouTube Music was provided to Google Play Music users as part of the YouTube Premium offering. Additionally, aspects of the two platforms were integrated; Google Play Music recommendations and YouTube music videos are available across both services. In April 2017, reports surfaced that the default music player on the then-new Samsung Galaxy S8 would be Google Play Music, continuing a trend that started with the S7 in 2016.
It’s easily accessible and you don’t even need an account on the website for on-demand streaming. Plus, a Google Play Music subscription also worked as a YouTube Premium subscription, making it the best one-two punch in video and audio streaming history. Google Play Music is finally shutting down by December 2020. Per Google’s announcement today access to the nine year old music streaming service will end in October for most users .

As long as I remember to connect my Nexus 7 tablet to the internet once per month my music always works offline. I’ve been using Google Play All Access since it was in Beta.

- It should improve in terms of ergonomics and looks as time goes on too.
- That’s all, every free service I got from google, Microsoft, Apple ends.
- It’s essentially the daughter of both services, offering bits and pieces from either.

- You might not get full media button and notification support that way, though.
- Users can also search for a specific artist, song or album, with the service returning a collection of music related to the search query.
