December is the last month you'll be able to access Google Play Music. 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.

I'm one of those weirdos who refuses to embrace streaming , so I turn to YouTube for one-off mobile jams.
