How to transfer Google Play Music content to YouTube Music
Google claims it only takes one press of a button in the YouTube Music app to transfer Google Play Music content over to the newer service. Here’s how to do it:
- If you have not already done so, go ahead and download the YouTube Music app from the Google Play Store.
- Open the YouTube Music app on your Android device. You should see a “Transfer your Play Music library” option. Press the “Let’s Go” button to continue.”
- You should then see the “Transfer your latest Google Play Music additions” selection, along with “Not Now” and “Transfer” options at the bottom of the screen. Press the “Transfer” button to start the process.
That’s how to move Google Play Music content to YouTube Music. Be sure to get this done before the end of 2020. That’s the deadline for moving your library over before your content completely disappears.
