Due to Google Play Music being sunset, I had to move all of my uploaded music from Google Play Music to YouTube Music. One nice feature about YouTube Music is the ability to share playlists with others. However, I realized that shared playlists do not show uploaded music in them when shared with others. They only show to the creator of the playlist.

Is there a way to automatically convert uploaded songs to a public version of the song that is visible to others? All of my music is properly titled with the correct artists. I'm surprised that I haven't seen any sort of functionality like this built into YouTube Music. A third party solution is acceptable.

Short answer: Try SoundCloud!

As you are not very specific about the playlist, and YouTube tightly controls this kind of content to avoid harming artists, then they probably disable this feature on your channel.

  • Does SoundCloud allow you to upload your entire music library? I believe not. Jul 12, 2020 at 23:48
  • Also YouTube Music is a completely separate application than YouTube is. YouTube Music allows you to upload audio files (not videos) which is what I'm talking about when I say "uploaded songs". Jul 13, 2020 at 19:07
