Further integration of Google Play Music and YouTube Music

Google has been planning its platforms for several years Google Play Music en YouTube Music integrate with each other. Google Play Music is expected to disappear as a streaming service and YouTube Music to become the default streaming app for music and music videos. Those options now exist side by side and in addition, releases sent to YouTube Music also appear on the regular YouTube site in the form of static 'clips' with the artwork of your release and the music underneath.

In early April, Google added, without any advance warning, a large number of releases previously available only on Google Play Music to YouTube Music and YouTube. Although they do not provide much information about it, it seems that the next step has now been taken to phase out Google Play Music as a streaming service.

Did your releases unexpectedly appear on YouTube and YouTube Music in early April? Then the above is the reason. Do you want your releases to be removed here? Of course they can, but they are also automatically removed from Google Play Music. You generate revenue with streams on YouTube Music and the number of users is also growing fast, so in that respect, our advice is to simply leave your releases here.

As soon as we know when Google Play Music will disappear permanently, we will report it here immediately. From now on, you should at least keep in mind that releases you send to this platform will automatically appear on YouTube Music, even if you don't explicitly check the latter option during checkout.

New: your music on TikTok and Resso

You will not have missed it: TikTok is one of the most talked about social media apps in recent years. With TikTok, short music videos can be created and shared. The videos have a length of 3 to 15 seconds and so-called 'loops' have a maximum length of 60 seconds.

Starting today, you too can make your music available for use in TikTok videos. When your music is available on TikTok, users will be given the option to listen to a 'preview' of 30 seconds. In their videos, they can use 15 seconds of your track. With the use of your music you naturally generate income, which you will see in your account afterwards.

In addition to TikTok, Resso is now also available, a streaming service that was also developed by Bytedance, the owner of TikTok. Resso offers a full-fledged music service, but also has many social functions. Users are encouraged to share lyrics and leave messages for other users. The music starts playing immediately when the app is opened.

The Resso app is currently only available in India. It is not known when the service will be released in other countries. According to recent reports, ByteDance wants to provide “emerging countries” with the app first.

TikTok and Resso are available immediately via our platform. You can find an up-to-date overview of all available streaming services, download stores and apps here .
