Google Play Music is one of the most downloaded apps from Google. It has been downloaded over a billion times from the Play Store, and it is also available on iOS.
First and foremost, it’s a music player; any music files on your device storage will be accessible when you open the app and you can play them just like any other music player.
The killer feature of Google Play Music however, is its ability to play cloud stored music. There are multiple ways to do this too.
Sign up to the Unlimited tier of Google Play Music; for £9.99 per month you can stream millions of tracks to your mobile device or PC, and download them to play whilst offline.
Sign up to the Family Plan, for £14.99 per month 6 family members can also listen to millions of online tracks or download them to listen to whilst offline.
The beauty of all
of these options is you can upload up to 50,000 of your own
songs to your account!
You simply install “Google Music Manager
” to the PC that contains all of your MP3 files or iTunes library and tell it where the files reside, they then begin uploading to your personal, cloud-stored music library. If you buy a CD in the future and rip it to your PC, the files auto-upload to the cloud as well. Alternatively, you can buy albums on the Play Store and these will also become part of your library.
I use this app every day in the car via Bluetooth, and often at home via Android TV or Chromecast. It rocks!!
