YouTube Music will replace Google Play Music later this year. The transition has already started and users can now transfer their music libraries, playlists and personal preferences from one platform to another so that everything is ready by December.
All user data will be available until the end of December, but after that date they will no longer be accessible. In addition, from the end of August, users will no longer be able to buy music, upload or download themes via the Google Play Music Music Manager.
To ensure that they don’t miss anything, users will have two options, use the YouTube Music Trasnfer tool or use Google Takeout to export data and download purchased songs. Those who prefer can delete the account, and Google will notify all users who no longer have access to its contents.
According to the Google video platform, there are new features and updates to note, developed already thinking about the new wave of users that the end of Google Play Music will bring. It is already possible, for example, to create collaborative playlists, that is, in which several people can participate.
There is also a new “Explore” section that invites users to meet new singles or video clips. It is also here that they can travel among playlists created by YouTube Music and inspired by different musical styles but also environments or moods.
