No longer have access to YouTube Red/full access to Youtube Music 1 Recommended Answer 34 Replies 61 Upvotes

I have been paying $9.99/mo for Google Play Music since 2014/2015, and had access to the benefits of YouTube Red/Premium and YouTube Music as Google has been rolling out new features and services under that subscription. My subscription was renewed again for this month a week ago (at the same time it always gets renewed) but just last night I found out I could no longer watch YouTube or listen to YouTube Music ad-free, and couldn't download videos/songs for later. I looked into it and all I could find is the new service for YouTube Premium that costs $11.99/mo.

Why the sudden change, and why wasn't I given any notification/update on what my subscription to Google Play Music now gets me? Is there any way for me to retain the features of YouTube Premium, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music that won't run me $20.99/mo? As far as I can tell Google Play Music is not included in YouTube Premium, but I still use Google Play Music as my primary music app since it has all my songs/playlists since 2014/2015. Additionally, I have not found/been informed of any way to transfer my entire library to YouTube Music. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
