So I see Apple Music customers will get access to itunes match soon, at the moment whatever they use to match uploaded songs to apple music doesn't work very well, for example they match to completely wrong songs, I know Itunes Match is much better, but I wondered if the songs I upload will now match to itunes songs as well as apple music streamable songs.

Has anyone on apple music been upgraded to itunes match yet?

Can you link to what you're referring to? iTunes Match is a separate pay service. I also highly doubt that it uses some different matching engine than Apple Music.

And for the record, AM incorrectly matched only like three albums of mine, out of 13000 songs.

I think the OP is confusing iTunes Match with fingerprint matching. :apple:Music is getting fingerprint matching to better identify similar/same named tracks but that is of course NOT the same as iTunes Match.

No but the articles seem to suggest if you own both itunes match and apple music, you won't need Itunes match anymore

I canceled Match last year right after I got :apple:Music because Match was no longer needed for me. It is all about the features you are interested in. As of now this is still a rumor anyway and Apple info doesn't reflect what or if any changers are being made to :apple:Music. Jim Dalrymple does have a pretty good track record but it may be all correct, part correct or none correct.

Here is what Apple says and is still applicable: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204962
