YouTube Music now allows you to listen to music offline

Released in late 2011, Google Play Music is the streaming music service of the Internet giant. But it seems that the platform will not reach its 10th anniversary, because Google confirmed its decision to close the service a few months ago, to focus on YouTube Music.

Download playlists without being premium

Until now, the free users of the app could download alone songs loaded individually, as downloading from playlists was not supported. But to give new users a “boost” to its app, Google has decided that any user, premium or free, can download songs loaded from a playlist and listen to them offline .

This new feature is available for both Android and iOS users, according to the Android Police website.

Google Play Music closes in December

Google announced that in December of this year Play Music will close permanently , so the service is a couple of months away. In some areas, in fact, the closure will take place even earlier. From September 2020 in New Zealand and South Africa and from October for all other global markets, users can no longer stream or use the Google Play Music app.

Although according to Google at the moment you shouldn’t worry, because “we will keep elements like playlists, uploads, purchases, likes and more until December 2020 to facilitate your transfer to YouTube Music. Users wishing to transfer their music libraries from Google Play Music to YouTube Music will be able to do so until December 2020, after which time their Google Play Music collections will no longer be available “.
