Google Play Music, now shut down, was a music and podcast streaming service and an online music locker operated by Google as part of its Google Play line of services.

The service was launched in 2011 as Music Beta by Google and, 6 months later, was released to the general public as Google Music. In 2012 it was rebranded Google Play Music which is the name it kept until it was permanently shut down in late 2020.
