On Tuesday, YouTube published a blog stating that Google has finalized its efforts to migrate Google Play Music users over to YouTube Music, which will eventually replace the former. For the past few months, Google has been updating YouTube Music with new features, including the ability to migrate music, tastes, and playlists from Google Play Music.

YouTube Music will completely take over Play Music by December 2020. By September, South Africa and New Zealand won’t be able to stream music via the Google Play Music app. Subsequently, the same changes would spread to all other global markets in October. Subscriptions will automatically be stopped as well.

Playlists and music libraries will be preserved as long as users migrate to Youtube Music before the switch.

YouTube Music is adding new features, including a new Player page redesign, a new Explore tab, and some new integrations with existing Google services.
