Don't worry, Google now has an easy way to move your music library, playlists and preferences over to YouTube's music streaming service. But YouTube Music recently unveiled a tool to help you transfer your entire library, profile and playlists from Google's streaming service into YouTube's revamped one with just one tap. YouTube Music is also getting some new features that may make it a bigger competitor to streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. For now, users will have access to both services, giving them time to move their music over and get used to the YouTube Music interface. But starting at the end of August, you won't be able to purchase, preorder, upload or download music from Google Play Music through Music Manager.
