Google sends out one more warning, will delete Play Music data later this month

You'll want to transfer or download your data sooner rather than later.

Published onFebruary 5, 2021

  • Google has warned users that their Play Music library and data will be deleted on February 24.
  • The company says users can still transfer or download this data before then.

Google shuttered its long-running Play Music service late last year, calling on users to hop to YouTube Music instead. Since then, the company has been allowing people to download their Play Music library and data or transfer it to YouTube Music.

You might want to act fast if you haven’t gotten around to downloading or transferring your data though. Google sent an email to Google Play Music account-holders this week, warning users that their data will be deleted on February 24, 2021.

“This includes your music library, with any uploads, purchases and anything you’ve added from Google Play Music. After this date, there will be no way to recover it,” reads an excerpt of the email. Check out the screenshot below.

The email acknowledges if users have already transferred to YouTube Music, but notes that you can still transfer again or download your data and library via Google Takeout. The data downloaded via Takeout includes purchased/uploaded music, playlists, radio station metadata, and search/playback history.

Have you migrated to YouTube Music already from Google Play Music? Or did you switch to another streaming service? Let us know by taking the poll below.
