After almost two years of Google Play Music and the revamped YouTube Music existing side-by-side with no clear path forward, Google is finally ready to bring long-time Play Music fans over to YouTube Music without disrupting their streaming habits. As of May 12, a new transfer tool is rolling out to users that allows you to bring over all of your songs, playlists, and more from Play Music to YouTube Music. Here's how it works!

If you don't see the transfer feature in your YouTube Music app quite yet, don't worry. This is a staged rollout, meaning it could be a few days before the option is available to you. Once it is, check back here to learn how to use it.

How to transfer your Google Play Music library to YouTube Music

  1. Open the YouTube Music app on your phone.
  2. Tap the Let's Go button under the Play Music banner.
  3. Tap Start Transfer.

Believe it or not, that's all there is to it. The entire transfer could take a few hours to complete depending on how much history you have with Google Play Music, so feel free to leave the YouTube Music app at any time and the transfer will continue in the background.

With this transfer tool, all of the following from Play Music is brought over to YouTube Music:

  • Music recommendations
  • Your playlists & many stations
  • Liked & disliked songs
  • Uploads & purchases
  • Albums & songs in your library

Once the transfer is finished (an email will be sent to you when this happens), you'll see a new collection of songs on your YouTube Music home page that are all recommended from your Play Music library. Also, if you had any stations that you liked to listen to in Play Music, you'll now find these in the Playlists section of the YouTube Music app.

The entire process is rather seamless and doesn't require much work on your part. Just tap a few buttons, sit back, and relax.
