Google Play Music Removes-Gift Play Music Subscriptions
Google Play Music has now removed the option to gift Play Music subscriptions. Im not too surprised about this move from Google as previously they removed the option for artists to upload their new music.
The send gift option could be found in Settings > General and allowed you to gift a 1 month,3 months, and 6 months subscription by entering the receivers email address.
The Prices Were
- 1 month=$9.99
- 3 month=$29.97
- 6 month=$59.94
The option has been around for many years, but since version 8.21 release of the Play Music app, it has completely vanished.
Play Music web page
It seems that there is no more an option to buy subscriptions on the website either and when visiting the website I get the message Can’t complete your request
I think this service overtime is not as popular as it once was, and with services such as YouTube Music, it won’t be too long that Google drops Google Play Music altogether.YouTube Music is getting more popular by the day and 1 day I think this will be the ideal replacement and will have a subscription gift option.
