Google Play Music is a streaming app and music player that features over 35 million songs, which is impressive compared to a lot of other music streaming apps out there. A paid monthly subscription not only gets you complete access to the entire portfolio, but you can also take advantage of a YouTube Red membership along with it. If you are looking for a music player and streaming service combo, the Google Play Music app is a great choice. However, as is often the case with a lot of apps that are available, Google Play Music is not without its issues. Disclaimer: Not every user will come across these issues, particularly if you make sure to keep the app updated regularly. A lot of users have come across duplicate tracks that have been saved to their Google Play Music, particularly when they have synced their music from iTunes. You may have come across some issues with uploading songs to the Music Manager from your own collection. Downloaded playlists and songs seem to play as expected though. This is one of the Google Play Music problems that affected users a couple of years ago, but seems to have made an unfortunate return now. Many users have found that they cannot log in to the Music Manager because they have 2-factor authentication enabled for their Google account.
How to move your music from Google Play Music to YouTube Music
Google Play Music is shutting down in December. But don't worry, Google now has an easy way to move your music library, playlists and preferences over to YouTube's music-streaming service. But YouTube Music recently unveiled a tool to help you transfer your entire library, profile and playlists from Google's streaming service into YouTube's revamped one with just one tap. YouTube Music is also getting some new features that may make it a bigger competitor to streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. At this point, you've still got time to access Google Play Music, move your music over and get used to the YouTube Music interface. But you can no longer purchase, preorder, upload or download music from Google Play Music through Music Manager. In the US and other areas globally, that will happen sometime this month. You'll still find your playlists, uploads, purchases and likes in Google Play Music until December, so you can make your transfer to YouTube Music.
