Google closes one of its most used applications, you only have a few days to transfer your data

One of the services developed by Google is closing its doors. We must ensure à transfer your data quickly before you lose it.

Google services are not forever. The American company continues to test new experiences for its users and launches new products and services every year, but also makes new experiences. I do the housework regularly, at the risk of ending some old ones a little prematurely. There is even a site, Killed By Google, which references all the services abandoned by the brand for years. Google Stadia, Google Reader and even Google Hangouts are part of a list that never stops growing.

Recently, this is another highly acclaimed application that has entered the Google cemetery . The listening service "Google Podcasts" is no longer functional since June 23 in France. The service had already été closed to US users in April 2024.

This choice to close the application should allow à the American company to bring together the podcast offering on a single service and above all to avoid duplication on Google Podcasts and YouTube Music. She therefore strongly advises Google Podcast subscribers to transfer their data to YouTube Music. Be careful though, you only have until June 29, 2024 to make this transition!

To transfer data from Google Podcasts to YouTube Music, you need to follow several steps:

  1. Open the Google Podcasts appand select the menu & quot;Export subscriptions" which is at the top of the screen.
  2. The submenu "Export to Youtube Music" is displayed, justclick  "Export".
  3. After that, you should go directly to the application YouTube Music and press "Transfer".
  4. Once the transfer is complete, a confirmation message will appear next to you. the screen. You can then consult your subscriptions by clicking on the menu "Access à the library".

There are still other alternatives to this. Google Podcasts and YouTube Music although most are paid and contain a lot of advertising. For users of the Apple system, the Apple Podcasts application is undoubtedly the most complete. On the other hand, for Android users, it's more complicated, but we recommend AntennaPod. The open-source application provides access to millions of free and paid podcasts.
