Google Play Music is shutting down in December. 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. 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. At this point, you've still got time to access Google Play Music, move your music over and get used to the YouTube Music interface. But you can no longer purchase, preorder, upload or download music from Google Play Music through Music Manager.
