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.
You will find an up-to-date overview of all platforms where we can place your releases right here.
