Google shut down its long-running Play Music service late last year , asking users to jump to YouTube Music. Since then, the company has allowed people to download their Play Music library and data or transfer it to YouTube Music. However, you may want to act fast if it has failed to download or transfer your data. Google sent an email to Google Play Music account holders this week, warning users that it could delete Play Music data on February 24, 2021 .
«This includes your music library, with any uploads, purchases and everything you have added from Google Play Music. After this date, there will be no way to get it back ”, reads an extract from the email.
The email acknowledges whether users have already transferred to YouTube Music , but notes that you can still transfer again or download your data and library via Google Takeout . Data downloaded via Takeout includes purchased / uploaded music, playlists, radio station metadata, and search / playback history.
