Moving Google Play Music to Youtube Music

Moving Google Play Music to Youtube Music

As you may have heard…..Google Play Music is going to be discontinued sometime later this year (no specific dates that I could find) and Youtube Music will be the go to place for your Google-fied music collection.

I have been trying to find out how to move my Google Play Music to Youtube Music for a few months, but, yesterday…finally….I found out how to do it.

And it worked!

At least so far……

Here is what I did:

I downloaded the latest version of the Youtube music app on my Pixel 3 XL

I went to this web site (on my Pixel, using Chrome): music.youtube.com/transfer

I logged into my Google account

Selected transfer

I was done! All I had to do now was wait.

I got this on my screen:

Not long after, only a few minutes) I got an email:

I then went into Youtube Music to check my “library”:

Note that I had to go into “UPLOADS” to see my library now…..

Checking / comparing my old Google Play Music library:

I have no idea who Bob Acri is…..but….all the others looked like they transferred…..so I don’t care 🙂

I then played “Horsepower” by the late great Chris LeDoux and it worked!

I sent Chris over to our Bluetooth Bose speaker and, again…it worked!

Conclusion

Sometime this year, probably close to when we have a vaccine for coronavirus and a president who actually has a brain…..Google will discontinue Google Play Music and force you to use Youtube Music.

Lori uses Google Play music A LOT (while I listen to her music on the Bluetooth speaker….and yes…..it is Country!), so what I did here, with my account, is simply an experiment / test.

Check back for updates as I learn more…..

Geek On!
