Google finally kills Play Music
Making 'Fetch' happen
So I got the dreaded email. Google is officially shutting down Play Music.
Opening line is “Starting today, you can finally enjoy your music on YouTube Music”. Finally? I wasn’t aware that I, or anyone really, was waiting for this.
The death knell comes in the opening paragraph, where they talk about transferring your library.
So without much choice I started the process. And while they acknowledge it “looks a bit different’ we now know why Play Music hasn’t seen any updates or improvements.
This seems a 100% algorithm-based streaming service. Something I am not remotely interested in.
Good job I dug out my iPod.
