December is the last month you'll be able to access Google Play Music. 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. This won't come as a surprise -- YouTube announced the change back in August, and over the last few months, Google Play Music users lost the ability to purchase, preorder, upload or download music on the platform, or stream music from the app. But don't worry -- you still have time to transfer your library to YouTube Music before Google Play Music shuts down completely. And YouTube Music has a tool that will help you move your entire library, profile and playlists from Google's streaming service into YouTube's revamped one with just one tap. YouTube Music also recently got some new features that may make it a bigger competitor to streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. You'll still find your playlists, uploads, purchases and likes in Google Play Music until the end of the month, so you can make your transfer to YouTube Music. But your Google Play Music library will no longer be available after December.
