I'm so torn because if they kill GPM without fixing the myriad of issues YTM has, I'd really like to switch to Spotify, but Spotify doesn't have music uploading and I have so much music none of the streaming services offer.
What sucks more is that they already had something really good on their hands with Play Music. My *SOLE* complaint with the service was and is the 1,000 song cap on playlists. Remove that and add MD2 (maybe even dark mode ) and it would've been perfect.
I predict it's going to be like the Android Messages and Google Allo thing.
Make Google Allo, then kill it off, adding all of it's useful features back into a rebranded Android Messages. Thus calling it Google Messages.
YTM == Allo && GPM == Android Messages
Godammit they're shutting em both aren't they 😰 making half assed apps and then shutting down without giving a damn about the existing users😡😤 I might as well start using apple music at this point and stop doing anything with ytm!
I've had tracks disappearing from my GPM for 4 years, google "looking into it" for 4 yrs, with no resolution. It was fucked for 4 yrs. It will be merged with YTM, so ads unless you pay a sub, no more uploads, forced to stream, dwindling catalogue. Shuts down in 2 years.
Eventually, it will merge; but not before we support key features such as uploading your personal collection, playing local MP3s on Android, importing your library content/preferences. We’ll provide plenty of notice but right now, we can't share any specific dates.
is the main thing keeping me in the Google ecosystem anymore. If/when they kill that, then goodbye @Google for me. The removal of @YouTube Red a few days ago cancelled my YT and PM subscriptions and I almost didn't sign back up.
