How to merge duplicate songs on Google Music
I sometimes encounter duplicate album entries on Google Music All Access, which looks something like this:
When you upload an album to your library, Google doesn’t always match it correctly with their own version. I thought it was because of different song durations, but it’s much simpler than that. Just remove the album artist info and everything works fine. Here’s a quick how-to guide.
Click on a song, open the context menu and select
Edit info. If it’s not available, select the other song version instead.
Now simply remove the
Album Artist field and save your changes.
You can select multiple entries by holding the Shift or Ctrl key.
If this doesn’t help, make sure that all metadata matches exactly (same album and artist name etc.)
