Google allows Google play music to YouTube music

Google Play Music is going away at the end of the year, leaving YouTube Music as Google’s only streaming music service. But before that happens, you’ve got the chance to transfer over your music library, recommendations, purchased songs, and personal uploads to YouTube Music with just a few taps. This will ensure that you won’t lose any content when Google Play Music is eventually shut down.

The process is the same for mobile devices regardless of whether you’re using Android or iOS.
  • Make sure you’ve got the latest version of YouTube Music installed from Google Play or the App Store
  • Open YouTube Music. You might get a pop-up advertising YouTube Music Premium. Just ignore that for now.
  • On the main home screen, you should see a banner that says “Transfer your Play Music library.” 
Google Play Music remains available for now, and you’ll be able to keep accessing the service even after migrating your library to YouTube Music. But if you make changes to playlists or some other part of your library on Google Play Music, you’ll need to do another transfer for them to be reflected on YouTube Music. The two services do not sync content.
Thankfully, Google only transfers whatever’s been changed or is new during subsequent transfers and won’t try to copy your entire library all over again. The text will read a little differently, too, and should say something like “transfer your latest Google Play Music additions.”
