not interested in any, i have my own music/song and all i want is a music player to play my songs and able to sync to whatever platform i want to play to.
the only reason i am using google music now is because i am able to sync and connect to my other google services like drive, assistant, dashboard etc..
the second other are able to do the same, you have no leverage anymore.
I Never ever do music streaming. (don't waste my Data)

Google has never paid attention to the Music department. Google Play Music was a joke. Youtube Music still needs a hell lot of improvement.

There are packages of Google Apps to install on a custom ROM, and those packages are named based on what aps are included. There are Pico, Nano, Micro, Mini GApps among other packages. For example one package contains Play, Maps, Accounts only and other package include Youtube+Music+Movie and the complete package would include apps we don't use like News+Stock etc.
