How to distribute on YouTube Music now that Google Play Music is gone
With the replacement of Google Play Music by YouTube Music last year, you might be wondering how this has affected your music.
If you’ve tried visiting Google Play Music this year, you’ll find that the music streaming service is now officially closed. Google phased out the platform last year in favor of YouTube Music. YouTube Music is a music streaming service with all of the same key features like personalized playlists, downloads, and a greater focus on music videos. YouTube Music is available in two versions: Free and Premium. Free is ad-supported, while Premium gives you ad-free, offline, and background listening for $ 9.99 per month.
But how does this affect my music if I distribute with RouteNote? If you selected Google Play Music when uploading your music, your music will already be on YouTube Music. Since Google Play Music and YouTube Music share a catalog, no action is required on your part to upload your music.
For newer releases, it’s easy to get your music from YouTube Music for free. Simply head over to RouteNote, upload your track, and choose from one of the leading online music stores and streaming services like YouTube Music, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more .
