Sources have confirmed to 9to5Google that Google has rolled out the ability to upload one's entire music library in an internal build of YouTube Music. This feature is similar to what the company offered with Google Play Music.
This feature will mark a big step in helping Google Play Music users to transition to YouTube Music. As per one source, the public release of this feature is right around the corner. It is also rumored that Google will start offering Google Play Music users an option to transition to YouTube Music with their entire music library within the next few months. The company will then shutter down Play Music in the second half of 2020.
For users with a massive music library, this will be a great feature as they will be able to access them for streaming via YouTube Music without having to store the files locally on their device.
Google had first announced YouTube Music in May 2018. This was despite the company already having a music streaming service in the form of Google Play Music. YouTube Music lacked a lot of features but Google planned on adding all the necessary features and transition users to its new music streaming service by 2019. That, however, did not happen but over the last few months, Google has been consistently improving YouTube Music as it possibly looks to take on Spotify and Apple Music.
Google recently revealed that YouTube Music and YouTube Premium combined have 20 million paid subscribers.
