Google's made a move from Google Play to YouTube Music. The search giant has now made it easier for Google Play Music users to migrate their content and start using the YouTube Music service, though the move will take some time to complete it entirely. YouTube Music app has created a dedicated platform to allow users to migrate content such as uploads, transactions, added tracks, collections, and playlists. Also, a website was developed to move podcasts from Google Play Music to Google Podcasts which is Google's own podcast program.

The YouTube Music app for Android and iOS will give you the option to migrate your content from Google Play Music with the latest update that is initially rolling out for select users. It will allow you to migrate your uploads, purchases, added songs and albums, playlists, likes and dislikes, personal and subscribed, and curated stations. Once you have completed the switch, the app will start displaying your revised recommendations. Also, when the music library transfer is through Google will alert you by email and notifications. You'll be able to view your material in the YouTube Music app's Library tab.

Automatic shift to an equivalent tier

In addition to updates to enable transfers, Google has announced that Google Play Music Unlimited subscribers will automatically receive an equivalent YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium package, depending on their current subscription. Of course, the company is recommending new users to continue their journey over Google Play Music with the YouTube service.

Interestingly, Google Play Music and YouTube Music are priced the same as 1$ a month for the ad-free experience. Users can also select YouTube Premium at 2$ a month which includes add-free music and video subscription. In addition, you can go with the ad-supported version of YouTube Music for free.
