    I changed my phone and used Smart Switch app to download all of my storage to my new phone from my older phone and not only I lost about 20 songs from my music library but I mysteriously recovered another about 25 songs that had disappeared from my music library a few months ago...

    Wtf!

    I bought a Galaxy A70. I used Smart Switch app to transfer all my data from my older phone (Galaxy A8) to my new one (A70). After the process I noticed that I lost about 20 songs from my Google Play music app that I had purchased recently AND also I mysteriously recovered some songs I had lost about a year ago that now re-appeared in my new phone....

    This is not the first time that occurs. Also I remember noticing a few months back I no longer had my song in my Google Play App when I had purchased it (from Play Store) a few months back. I eventually forgot about it.

    Additional info is I don't synchronize my phone on a computer, I rarely need a computer so I don't understand why SOME of my songs would suddenly disappear?!?!

    Welcome to Android Central! Perhaps Google lost the rights to the music? When I recently migrated my entire saved music library from Google Play Music to YouTube Music, I was informed that a couple of tracks couldn't be moved, presumably due to some odd rights issue.

    If you go to the Play Store and search for those specific tracks, does it give you the option to buy them, or does it say they're in your library already?

    When I type the title of a song in Play Store, from my new device, it seems that I have to buy it again......

    Are you certain you're using the exact same Google account?

    How can I verify?

    Oh!! I just checked in my Google play music, it looks like I have two different address emails

    How can I keep my music from my both accounts then?

    Without having to disconnect from one and connect from the other one to listen to a song.....

    Hi welcome !

    Try family sharing between accounts?

    mustang7757's suggestion might be the only way. Otherwise, there's no sharing of purchases between non-family accounts.

    Another possibility is to download the purchased music on your computer browser from the Play Music website, and then uploading it to your other account's Play Music (or YouTube Music) library. You can only manipulate a downloaded music file from the desktop website, not the app.
