Hi everyone,

Today, we announced on our official YouTube Music blog a new migration process that allows you to transfer your favorite content from Google Play Music to YouTube Music effortlessly. We’ve been focused on improving the YouTube Music experience and bringing Google Play Music’s most loved features to it. We’re now inviting you to make the simple move to YouTube Music!

Transferring all your favorite content between the two services is easy 
Your uploads and purchases, playlists, stations, likes & dislikes, albums and songs in your library can be moved over with a single click at music.youtube.com/transfer. We’re rolling this tool out over the next couple of weeks. If you do not have access yet, you will soon and we will notify you via email and in the app when it’s available to you!

The transfer can take a few minutes or up to a few days to complete, depending on how much content you have to move over. Once you’ve completed the transfer, you can use either app to continue your listening experience or make the switch over to YouTube Music (where you’ll easily be able to locate your transferred data). You can also transfer more than once. Learn more about how to transfer your Google Play Music account or watch this video!



Here’s all that you’ll be able to transfer across the two services:
  • Your Library: You’ll be able to easily transfer uploaded & purchased songs, your stations (known as Playlists on YouTube Music) as well as the rest of your library – including albums and songs – across the apps. Note that you may see discrepancies in numbers if you’ve used YTM in the past and some songs were already part of your library or if some songs were duplicated during the transfer process. Additionally, certain songs or albums may not transfer due to rights or licensing issues. More on this at our Help Center.
  • Your likes and dislikes: We’ll also update your profile so that you get personalized recommendations in YouTube Music based on your Google Play Music listening history, as well as the content you’ve previously given a thumbs up or down to. Note – your “thumbs ups” will be moved to your “Likes” playlist. 
  • Your billing information: If you’re currently paying for a Google Play Music subscription, we’ll also convert it to the equivalent tier of YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium (based on the level of benefits with your current subscription). Your monthly rate and billing details, including your billing date, will remain the same and transfer to YouTube Music. If you manage your family account, you are the only one who can transfer the billing. More info at our Help Center.

NOTE – YouTube Music does not support podcasts, so you won’t be able to transfer your podcasts from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. Instead, you can easily move your podcast info to the Google Podcasts app. More on this here

Will YouTube Music be able to select the proper songs when playing an album and play those songs in the album's track order?  All these years, and Google Play Music still can't do it.

Will my uploads stream at high quality like my uploads did on GPM with a free membership?

The upload section in Youtube Music is still lacking features compared to Goole Play Music. No play count, not able to download my own uploaded songs, not able to edit the tags after uploading the songs. I wonder if these features are still waiting to be migrated or not in the scope at all? I got rid of and lost some of my CDs. Losing these features means that I can no longer rely on Google to keep the backup and manage my library.

"The YouTube channel you're currently using isn't supported for the Google Play Music transfer. Switch to another YouTube channel associated with this account (xxx@xxx.xxx.xxx) to continue transferring. Learn more [zero relevant info in the 'learn more' link]"

Why am I the least bit surprised this doesn't work? :-D

Will you implement direct cast to Sonos devices from Youtube Music?  If not, I'll be changing services.

What? Why do you even need to mix video service and music service? YouTube music is a mess. I have had my autogenerated playlist on GPM with all the tracks I liked (thumbs uped) and now it is messed with all the videos I liked. So I can't just play my Thumbs Up playlist anymore without listening to some street performances or whatever I liked on YouTube.
Recommendations are even worse than they were. Why does YTM recommends me new rap and pop when I have not a single artist liked or added in my library? Why do I need music videos in my library at all? 
Google, what the heck? This is not transferring, this is just completely killing pretty good service you have had.
If the transition takes place I would move to Spotify/Yandex.Music with no regret at all.

All sounds really really great.

BUT the no go for me is that you haven't fixed casting from Android YTM to Sonos speakers!

No one seem to understand or can give an answer on why casting to Sonos is totally possible and has been working like a charm a long long time now on Google Play Music.   BUT that is NOT so for YTM, it is simply ignored to death by YTM, Sonos is nowhere to be found as a stream enabled device from inside YTM,  yet is easily available in GPM. 

I am NOT going to buy another gizmo like Chromecast Audio to get this to work for me,
I am going back to Spotify if GPM stops working before YTM can stream to my Sonos speakers.
Still missing the great music suggestions, the auto generated lists from Spotify, GPM stinks at that!

Is this is the Google evil no one likes? Protectionism like Apple?  Or is it down to Sonos?? 

Why why why?

Yeah this whole transfer thing would be a great if it actually worked correctly. None of my playlists transferred over with the songs in them. I just have multiple playlists with 0 songs. Oh but if I bought a song on the playlist it shows up. what a joke. please fix this, or go back. it's clear many people arent happy with this.

update: tried to archive the music library so I could see my playlists cuz I'd liek to attempt to remake them cuz I doubt this will be fixed and they didnt even archive properly. i have litterally lost years of playlists i have made. "easy process" yeah whatever. as I said what a joke.
