ATM – Google Play RIP. What next?

Probably there aren’t many on here who have used the upload function of Google Play, but it has been a useful tool, letting me listen to my own music without ad breaks across different devices wherever there’s an internet connection, without lugging around a terabyte hard drive and plugging it in.

Now Google have decided to junk it. I’ve done what they suggested and transferred my files and playlists to YouTube Music. But the functionality is shite. Lists instead of icons, no way to download my music and no way to edit the files online. All of which Google Play allowed.

Apparently we’re all streaming now anyway. But that means a monthly sub or adverts every 30 minutes.

Are they any suggestions for alternatives?

Thank you!
