At the end of his long-term retirement, Google finally quit Play Music in December and passed the baton to YouTube Music. There is still some time to transfer the music library to the new service, but the deadline is fast approaching. You only have a couple of weeks before all your data on Play Music disappears for good.

Google has been sending out polite emails to its Play Music users over the past day or two, reminding them to move the library before February 24th. After this date, there will be no way to recover lost data, according to the correspondence. And if you fiddled with your GPM library after backing it up to YouTube Music, now̵

Those who also want to download associated data in GPM can do so using Google Takeout, but also it will only work until February 24th. You can go to our detailed guide if you need help transferring your library, and we are also considering some options if you are not completely convinced of what YouTube Music has to offer.
