Google can you fucking not just kill off random projects that still have a very active userbase!!!
I know you want to merge the play music streaming with youtube music. But that is no reason to kill off the default music player on Android. Cause, y'know, A FUCKTONNE OF PPL STILL USE OFFLINE MUSIC!!!!
And to add more insult to this, Play Music is a default app on pretty much all Android phones. This means it cannot be uninstalled at all. (Unless you root) So thanks for the waste of space!!!

    Well, these projects were random to begin with *shrug*

    Didn't this happen like a few months ago?

    They announced it quite some time ago. But yeah, don't trust a google service that compete with search or youtub.

    Nonoo.. they don’t WANT to merge... They HAVE to. Because they were too
    Dominant.

    @asgs No, they didn't shut down the service in all countries at the same time. In my country Google Play Music stopped working a few days ago.

    Better yet: don’t trust google at all. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Google does that all the time, so it's not really surprising. If all you want is offline playback just install VLC or something.

    Why anyone would run their phone without full control is beyond me

    Even though I feel the same way as you, I'm sure Google has a very clear picture of how much any given product of theirs is used; after all user tracking is at the core of their business. So if they decide to pull the plug of something, it's either 1) not used by a lot of people, or 2) not bringing enough revenue *ahem* Inbox *ahem*

    Just use a better player for Android? Like Musicolet

    Also org.lineageos.eleven is just 3 MB, so that may be a good alternative for offline music playback.

    It can be uninstalled without root. Just needs the terminal.

    And like me, in some regions YouTube music is not available at all. 😥

    uh...? I have it disabled (inaccessible, rolled back to version in /system/app, data cleared, and its /data folder compressed) without root. I know some phones only "disable" them by hiding the app in whatever home screen, but this is uncommon from what i've seen?

    just use VLC and youtube-dl.
