Google Play Music listeners can now begin to transfer their music libraries and playlists to YouTube Music. For now, users will continue to have access to both services, though access to Google Play Music will be cut off later this year. Google Play users will receive an email with a link to send the music to the new home, YouTube Music, and will need to download the YouTube Music app and click the transfer button.
Podcast users can transfer subscriptions and episode progress to Google Podcasts, the dedicated podcast player available for free via Android and iOS and accessible from Google Assistant, Google Search, Google Home and more.
Google has allowed MP3s to be directly uploaded from computer libraries to its services and as part of the transition, is increasing its maximum to 100,000 total songs, an increase from the previous max of 50,000. Google has also increased playlist length from 1,000 to 5,000 songs.
