Google Play Music being discontinued

With Google's transition of its online music services, Google Play Music will be discontinued and will gradually be wound down before the end of the year.

They sent out an email blast on this a few days ago.

Instead it will move to the YouTube platform, though how this business model will work, considering it has a lot of illegal content up there (I noticed this when trialling GPM earlier this year) remains to be seen.

I don't think it's a good idea for Google to be charging for a paid platform if illegal music is going to be part of the mix.

For GDM writers, don't bother anymore with Google Play Music streaming links.
