This article covers a simple tutorial to transfer playlists from Google Play Music to Apple Music. Google Play Music is a music store rather than a music streaming service. Comparing it from a service-type point of view, it’s more like iTunes than Apple Music. On top of that, it also serves as a media player for local music files which you can merge together with online music in playlists. With all that, transferring playlist from Google Play Music is not so easy.
