I’m close to pulling the trigger and transferring my Google Music to You Tube as will be required.Is there any hope of the YTM app being improved so it will exceed the 1 star ratings I have been reading?I have a lot of loyalty to the the app that works, but this seems like a terrible idea right now…
The YouTube Music group is very aware of the chatter about their service.
While Google will not say anything official (and we are not Google here, we’re users helping other users)… you will notice that YouTube Music has gotten a LOT better over the last month. There is no reason to believe they are done.
There are some things that will be different; you have to have a subscription to cast and to use background play and you won’t be able to buy songs anymore. But, I was also starting to “consider alternatives” and have now decided to stick with YouTube Music because it is now doing most everything that I want it to do.
Also, even if you weren’t going to use YouTube Music, you should still do the transfer. That makes sure that anything you uploaded is stored and protected in case you want it later (though, please, don’t use this as your only backup of important or irreplaceable music). You don’t have to subscribe to use the storage.
