Removal of Google Play Music as a system application

Zen Master I
Model Name: ROG II
Firmware Version: .75
Rooted or not: Not
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Google Play Music

Since Google play music had been discontinued and replaced by YouTube Music for quite a while now and I was hoping that .75 update will allow us to uninstall Google play music, but it doesn't. So, how do we uninstall (not disable) it without ADB.
Do we expect it's removal as a system application in the next FOTA

If there will be any next "FOTA".

I don't think it can be uninstalled only hidden on phones(after play music's latest update) that had it as system app, basically 2019+ phones
Google Play Music's final update lets you hide the app on your phoneOn my 2018's Zenfone 5z personally it was an app that could be uninstalled

Brought this up long ago. Glad to see that it wasn't looked at.
