How to transfer my music from Google Play Music to YouTube Music
Google continued to make YouTube Music the go-to place for all music streaming. At the end of last year, Google Play Music was officially closed. What does this mean for you and your music?
Google launched YouTube Music in late 2015. Deliver streaming music with personalized genres, playlists and recommendations, as well as music videos with support from YouTube’s huge catalog. YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium members have access to background listening and ad-free offline playback for music and videos on YouTube Music and YouTube. As Google continued to invest in new features of YouTube Music, Google Play Music was discontinued and ultimately shut down on December 1, 2020.
Now that Google Play Music is closed, what steps should you take as an artist? Nothing! As Google Play Music and YouTube Music share a library, any music distributed on Google Play Music was also automatically distributed on YouTube Music. To make sure your music is distributed on YouTube Music, see the Manage stores section of your output and make sure YouTube Music is selected. Head toward music.youtube.com to find your exits.
Why should you distribute your music on YouTube Music? With 30 million paying subscribers, potentially millions of new listeners can access your music and send you income. RouteNote can help you download your music for free from YouTube Music and many other music stores and streaming services.
