OR Google has a history of running multiple overlapping services at the same time, such as having a number of messaging services. Another example is in the field of music with Google Play Music, released in 2011 and YouTube Music, the "competitive" brand started by Google to consolidate the YouTube as a de facto music repository.
After years of uncertainty and cross-promotions, the Google finally prepares the ground to transport its users Google Play Music in the YouTube Music. In the coming weeks, Google Play users will receive in-app emails and prompts to transfer their libraries to YouTube Music. This transfer process will include all its main functions Google Play, such as:
- Buy songs and albums
- Uploaded personal music (upload limit upgraded to 100.000 songs)
- Saved playlists
- Subscriptions Podcast
Users do not need to start the transfer at this time and free users will not be charged for new services. Those who wish to subscribe to Google Play Music for premium features, such as ad-free radio streams, will find that their link goes straight to YouTube Music Premium, since both cost 7 euros for individual accounts.
