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
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!
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…..
