Stephen Hall. One source suggested that efforts to transition Google Play Music users to YouTube Music are right around the corner…. At the time, Google was said to be targeting a transition timeline and that all major Google Play Music features would be in place when that happened. But it sounds like the company is in no hurry to make that switchover, so the target might slide a bit. By the time it does happen, Roman said that all of the major cornerstones of Play Music will have been added to YouTube Music. One of the last big pieces of the puzzle before such a transition can happen is music library upload functionality. The service later gained the ability to buy songs from the catalogs of major record labels, and only became a full premium streaming offering in When rumors began surfacing that Google was planning to transition Google Play Music users to YouTube Music, this was one feature that many feared would be hitting the chopping block. For context, Amazon Prime Music deprecated this functionality in its service a couple years ago, leaving many — myself included — concerned that Google might follow that lead. Thankfully Music head at YouTube T.
A few months shy of two years later, 9to5Google reports that Google has developed an internal beta version of YouTube Music that may add at least some of this long-awaited functionality. Specifically, 9to5Google says the new version adds support for user-uploaded music — one of the best features of Google Play Music. It might not sound exciting to everyone, but humor me for a moment. Music streaming services have almost everything you might imagine listening to in the cloud. Being able to upload files yourself without having to use a different music app is wonderful.
