Google kills Google Play Music, offers easy migration to YouTube Music

There's also the "Manage your data" button that takes you to the GPM website and lets you download your full library and delete it later. You can also delete your recommendation history.

However, if you have any songs downloaded onto your device, you'd have to either delete the Google Play Music app or at least clear the user data and cache in the App info sub-menu.
