These are the best replacements for Play Music's upload library

These are the best replacements for Play Music's upload library

Google killed Play Music in October 2020, a service many people loved for one feature in particular — its online music file locker with uploaded songs that seamlessly integrated with Play Music's streaming catalog. You could also just add titles you own and listen to them without ever having to pay a dime. Luckily, there are a few alternatives that replicate some of Play Music's capabilities, including its successor YouTube Music.

The best Google Play Store alternatives for buying music, books, movies, and TV shows

When Google discontinued Play Music, it also decided to pull the plug for the Play Store music section. That means you can no longer purchase songs from Google. A YouTube Music or Premium subscription is the only option going forward if you want to access songs through the company. That's a bummer because the Play Store is no longer a one-stop solution for all of your media needs, and there aren't a whole lot of full-fledged alternatives. But if you're looking to decouple parts of your digital life from Google, there are a few things you can do.

COVID tracing app roundup: All of the countries and US states that currently offer exposure notification apps

COVID tracing app roundup: All of the countries and US states that currently offer exposure notification apps

If you're looking for your country's or state's official COVID Exposure Notification System app, you might not be able to find it thanks to the screwy way Google is handling the search function for COVID related apps on the Play Store. Despite the fact many apps are testing Google's ENS API, the tag is missing from a few listings, and even worse there are some apps you simply can't even search for on the Play Store. Since it would appear every country and US state is creating its own stand-alone app, some areas are lagging behind others, so it's tough to know if your location even has an app available.
