Google Play Music has been started since YouTube re-launched two years ago. As the next streaming service gains new features – such as the re-design and discovery rim that is now playing last week, play-branded apps have been frozen functionally and visually.
Users have no choice but to use it because switching requires them to start their audio experience from scratch. As Google changes today, it allows you to convert Google Play Music Library to YouTube Music.
What Escapes in Google Play Music
Your library has big material, personal preferences, and history. It starts with the songs and albums in the Google Play Music catalog that you saved by pressing “Add to Library”. All Google Play purchases and file uploads are also included in the transformation, a defining feature of Cloud Locker for Play Music fans.
You can find this content by going to the Library page, selecting Albums / Songs / Artists, and then uploading the tab.
Personalized and subscribed playlists, as well as curated stations at the heart of the invention of play music. The last major factors to be transferred are musical recommendations, determined by personal favorites and song likes/dislikes, and other factors.
Once this change comes into your account, the YouTube Music Home tab on Android and iOS will ask you to “Move your latest Google Play music additions” while Music. youtube.com/transfer becomes available.
The cover art migration from your library is shown on the page with the “Transfer” button in the lower-right corner. You can restart this process by going to Settings> Transfer from Google Play Music.
Play Music recommendations immediately appear on YouTube Music’s home feed, but it may take several hours for the main content transfer, depending on the size of your library.
When everything is available in the “Library” tab, Google alerts you via email and app notifications. At the top of the app is a banner that you can press to see progress, with the ability to create a new playlist in Play Music and “transfer back” if you want to copy it.
Of course, transferring content uploaded to YouTube music not found in Play Music is only one direction.
To encourage older users to migrate, updates can be made directly to YouTube Music. Playlists are now maxing out at 5,000 songs instead of 1,000, while Google has doubled the number of individual tracks uploaded per 100,000.
The experience of transferring today is just to bring many people into the new service. Meanwhile, podcasts from Play Music can also be transferred to Google Podcasts.
What is Slow Rollout?
All Play Music users will be emailed with detailed instructions on how to get started. This process will take several weeks, with Google creating it nation-wide.
The price and benefits are unchanged as part of this transfer as customers become Dada with their old monthly rate. However, after pressing ‘transfer’, you will receive billing changes from “Youtube” instead of “Youtube Music” in your banking statement.
Today’s development comes as Google confirms our previous report that Play Music is closing “later this year.” Customers are notified of this upcoming demo with messages such as “YouTube Music replaces Google Play Music” and “Google Play is playing”.
At that point, the company will be sharing more details, especially with the Play Store song and album purchase. With Migration, any tune you buy on Google Play can be found on Play Music.
To get them on YouTube, you have to start another transfer. To date, Google has not commented on the future of music buying, which is certainly a niche behavior.
But until then, access to both services will continue, with Google promising “plenty of information” before it is shut down.
