  • The ability to transfer Google Play Music files to YouTube Music is now live for some.
  • It’s easy to check if your account is eligible. If it isn’t, you’ll probably only need to wait a few days at most.
  • The transfer process is literally a one-click procedure.

Although you may have yet to make peace with the inevitable death of Google Play Music, at least Google is making the transition easy. Today, the ability to transfer Google Play Music music files to YouTube Music is live — at least for some users.

As spotted by Droid-Life, the transfer tool isn’t active for everyone yet. It’s simple enough to see if you are one of the lucky few who can transfer Google Play Music files. Just head to this website and see if the transfer button is active for your account.

If the tool isn’t active for you yet, don’t worry. You’ll probably only need to wait a day or two for the feature to go live for your account.

Theoretically, you should be able to transfer Google Play Music files from within the YouTube Music app as well. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case, at least not yet. For now, initiating a transfer through the web portal is the only way to do it.

Thankfully, though, the process couldn’t be simpler. According to Droid-Life, you literally hit a single button that starts to transfer your files. Within minutes, the process is complete and your meticulously curated library of music files will be active in YouTube Music. Not bad, Google.

Of course, there are plenty of people who still don’t want to use YouTube Music, so the ability to transfer Google Play Music files will be of little help to them. If you’re one of those, might we suggest this alternative?
