If you are a melomaniac, then there is no chance for you to be unaware of Google Play Music. Google Play Music was a music and podcast streaming service from Google that offered millions of songs and on-demand music. Though subscription-based, it allowed enjoying it for 30 days free of cost before subscribing. But the sad news for Roku as well as music lovers is Google Play Music has been discontinued and is no longer available. Let’s see some alternative apps to listen to music on Roku.
Alternate Ways to Get Google Play Music on Roku?
Some third-party websites offer Google Play Music APK files even now. But any of the service’s holdings, like music, podcast, and radio, are streamed over the internet, and it is impossible to get them currently because its servers no longer exist. So like done before, even screen mirroring or casting Google Play Music from an Android device on Roku itself can’t be done.
But YouTube Music which had an earlier integration with Google Play Music, has taken over it now. It is a unique streaming platform that gives you access to official music along with videos. YouTube Music also has both free and premium versions, just like Google Play Music. YouTube Music’s premium is included in the YouTube Premium subscription.
Even old users with the Google Play Music app will be asked to get directed to YouTube Music.
Thus opt for it and get drenched in the rain of music on your Roku device. But YouTube Music is also unavailable in the Roku Channel Store. So you have to screen mirror or cast from supported devices like Android, iOS, and PC to get YouTube Music on Roku.
