In a strange and simply “what the heck” move, Google has just implemented a policy they had a couple years ago for Google Play Music. It was unpopular then, and it’s going to be unpopular now as well. The policy limits users to deauthorizing only 4 devices each year. What does that mean? Basically you can only remove up to 4 mobile devices from your Play Music account each year before you will receive a message notifying you that you’ve reached the limit. You’ll still be able to add more mobile devices, but you won’t be able to take any away. The real kicker here is that you can still only add 10 devices to your account at once. So if you max both limits, you won’t be able to use Play Music from a mobile device until the annual cycle renews.
The limit was around back in 2012, but Google quickly removed it. While it might not affect the average user, it’ll definitely be a pain for anyone who’s an avid enthusiast of Android, reviews devices, or even like to use custom ROMs. Let’s hope Google backs down on this one quick.
