In GooglePixel Reddit, some users are reporting that the Google Play Music app has completely disappeared from the Play Store. When you search for 'Google Play Music', zero results are returned. The only way to access the application page is through the link.
This is a funny situation that is only happening to some users. In the conversation thread, others are indicating that they can find the app without problems. It may be a simple mistake but under the circumstances, it seems to be a test by Google.
Google Play Music will be replaced by YouTube Music
It is well known that Google will replace Google Play Music with the new YouTube Music. That being said, Play Music will be the next service to go to Google's 'graveyard', joining Inbox, Google+ and other Google's defunct services.
The truth is that Play Music will not only be a subscription service like Spotify but also the default music player on pure Android phones. YouTube Music does not yet have this function, but only functions as a streaming service.
Therefore, Google should add this feature soon, otherwise YouTube Music will be a rather incomplete application. YouTube Music is Google's music subscription, with a value of $ 6.99 per month.
Google Play Music will not come preinstalled on Android 10
Google recently announced that mobile phones released as of now with Android Pie or Android 10 will not have Play Music preinstalled. So far, Play Music is part of Google Apps, the pre-installed app pack on most phones that includes Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, and more.
