Google is Starting to Notify Play Music Subscribers it’s Time to Transfer their Libraries to YouTube Music

Google is sending out an email to Play Music listeners, informing them that the YouTube Music transfer tool is now available for a seamless transition…

It’s no secret that Google will shutter Play Music in the coming months. And, it’s replacement, YouTube Music, is being prepped to handle the transition. In the meantime, users will have to move their libraries and more over. Now, the transfer tool is starting to show up for more subscribers.

Google Play Music Transfer Tool to YouTube Music Becoming more Widely Available

Google has a simple desktop web page that supports the transfer — that is, if it’s available for those accounts. (If not, there’s a big bold message that reads “Transfer your Google Play Music account soon. We’ll notify you when it’s your turn to transfer your Google Play Music account. Thanks for your patience!”)

Despite the fact that Google Play Music has more than 5 billion users, it’s still slated to go away sometime this year. And, YouTube Music is now the default app on Android 10. However, YouTube Music isn’t exactly ready just yet. Although, Google is busy working on bringing it up to par with the legacy experience. 

Google writes in an email:

“…you can finally enjoy your music on YouTube Music. You can now transfer your Google Play Music library, including playlists, uploads, recommendations, and more, to experience YouTube Music with your music library. Once you transfer, your membership will also move to YouTube Music, but you can continue to use Google Play Music, and your music library will still be there. YouTube Music will eventually replace Google Play Music later this year, but don’t worry – we’ll give you plenty of notice before that happens.”
