WARNING! If you are an Android smartphone user and often use Google Play Music app on your device, read this carefully. Tech giant Google has started sending out warning messages to the Google Play Music users saying that all of their data will be deleted this month on February 24.
The warning message comes as Google announced last year that it is shutting down Play Music. Google is going to replace its Play Music app with YouTube music app. Google has decided to shut down this popular Play Music app after about 8 years. This means users will no longer be able to stream from or use the Play Music app.

According to Bgr.in, Google sent a message to the users: “On 24 February 2021, we will delete all of your Google Play Music data. This includes your music library, with any uploads, purchases, and anything you’ve added from Google Play Music. After this day, there will no way to recover it.”
Google is letting users transfer their music library from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. To ease the transition process, YouTube Music introduced a feature that allows transferring the content from Google Play Music in a few steps.
Here’s how transfer your Google Play Music app library data to YouTube Music
To transfer the music library from Google Play Music to YouTube Music, first, the users need to download the YouTube Music app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices. After installing the app, users will need to click the button to transfer. The data can also be transferred using the Google Takeout app.
Data such as music library, as well as playlists, and more can be transferred using the app. However, the podcasts are strangely left out. For users who have already transferred their data to YouTube Music, Google recommends to transfer again in case they’ve made changes so that their music library is up to date, the report said.
