Although I have already talked about the merits of the Google Play Music app, we are not going to be using it for now. Now that we talked about getting your music on your device for offline listening, how about we also talk about how to get it on any device you want? All of your downloaded music will be there so you can easily grab it and transfer it wherever you want. Large houses and office buildings typically need several routers or repeaters for complete wireless coverage. Android users can buy songs from Google Play store and then play those songs in Google Play Music.
Note: To save this hassle, you could simply download the song free to your computer from your Google Play Music library website. This means if you want to try out the service without laying any money down upfront, you have a month’s worth of free music to listen to.
In other words, Google is reducing the cost of  its music streaming service by R10 a month to reward any early adopters.
After logging into Google Play Music from three different accounts, htxt.africa has some rather weird findings to report. Get our daily newsletter!An exclusive worldwide wrap of tech news in your inbox every morning, plus exclusive offers and more!

You should probably check this notice at regular intervals as it’s likely to be updated soon. Collecting those favorite songs and movies over the years requires a bit of organization, and without some proper apps and software, you will soon forget what you've stored. Some of the silliest questions in the world are, “Do you like music?” and “Do you like movies?”. Friends will pass you their favorites, you will buy or download your ones, and by the end of the year, you’re going to have a collection that’s a bit hard to organize. The first one on the list is a tool that hasn’t been specifically created to help users organize their movies and music collection. Data Crow is a smart crow that comes for free and can be installed on Windows, as well as Mac OS X. You will be able to create catalogues for your music, software, movies, books, games, but also stamps or photos you collect. Although it’s been especially appreciated for its usefulness in terms of organizing movies, this app can help you with a lot more than just that. You can basically create a virtual bookshelf by adding all of your songs or movies by category. Delicious Library is also useful for those planning to sell of them their items on Amazon or similar websites, as it allows you to quickly send the library to such websites. Suitable for both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, Collectorz Movie Collector is an amazing tool that only costs $30. It also allows its users to scan barcodes in order to add a movie to the list a lot quicker.  The tool supports tagging, so that you can set each movie as owned or wished, but also on order if you purchased it but it hasn’t arrived yet. DVD Profiler is great for those using Windows on their computer, and it costs $30 to get it downloaded and installed in a few minutes. To put it shortly, DVD Profiler lets you organize your movie collection by adding all movies one by one.
It also comes with a feature called Movie Pick that lets you write down your personal opinion about a movie. After looking at so many tools that require you to pay a fee in order to use them, it’s time to learn more about Libra.
Once you turn the webcam on, Libra will automatically scan any barcode placed in from of the camera.
If you want to share your collection, you can easily export it to mostly any web page or share it on social media. It supports various formats that include MP3, M4A, OGG, WMA and many others, it lets you look up your entire music collection for a specific file and comes with features that allow you to stay organized.
Adding the right tags corresponding to each music file can take a lot of time, but thanks to MusicBrainzPicard, you can save some time. In order to avoid that and make sure that you don’t ever lose any important albums from your favorite musician, you can use iTunes Match. Before we upset Android users, we should mention that Google Play Music is very similar to iTunes Match. Contrary to the tool before, this one is absolutely free to use, but it does pretty much the same thing.
Apart from letting you organize your music in one plays, the same as iTunes does it, this tool will also let you delete or reorganize files directly from your computer. Alex holds an engineering degree in Telecommunications and has been covering technology as a writer since 2009.

ShareLess than a month ago, I reluctantly had to close my Rdio account after the service was sold to Pandora. I don’t need to make a case for online music streaming services, as I’m sure most of you are aware of how handy they are. You can also create your own interactive ad-free radio stations, upload up to 50 000 songs, as well as pin playlists for offline playback to save your precious data while out on the move.
Yes, I am aware that there are ‘workarounds’ but I’m specifically referring to legit means, because the more of Google’s services become available, the more we can benefit from their ecosystem, like Apple. That way your entertainment is in one place, and your subscriptions in a single account and you can manage everything from your browser, anywhere, any time.
With Rdio closing down music fans are looking for alternatives to Deezer and Apple Music, neither of which suited my taste. I would love to be able to buy Nexus devices in South Africa straight from Google, or even Android One handsets as I’m currently slightly obsessed with budget phones. Rick has worked in a variety of fields, from a print and radio journalist to making bubble wrap in the UK for 18 months. With no firm confirmation at present it’s best to take this rumour with a pinch of salt. One app that I think Google should develop as a Chrome App is a great consumer level video editor. But there are also some people who really hate packeged apps (no, i love them, i’m thinking just like you) and google should let us choose if we want packeged apps or webapps. I would like something that ties together Google music and Amazon music, where I have two huge collections.
What I am interested in seeing from Play Music is the ability to control playback on one device from another.


I’m excited in the sense that this is the kind of app that Chrome OS really needs but unfortunately, Amazon has won my business with cloud music thanks to autorip. It also has a brilliant interface and a host of features, one of which is the ability to download your music for offline playing. Click on the three dots menu and select the option that says Add to playlist and then New Playlist.
A lot of phones now include a file manager by default but there are plenty of offerings in the Google Play Store too. However, those downloaded music files are hidden deep inside a system folder so that it plays only on Google Play Music and not on any other Android music player app.
Google allows a maximum of two downloads for each individual song when you’re downloading from the Google Play Music website. We aim to keep you up to date on the latest buzz in the tech industry with major focus on android mobile devices, applications and how to tips. The service on offer, incidentally, is the full fact service including Access All Areas, the online locker for your 50,000 tracks, pinned playlists and online music shop. However, it’s only taken a few hours for this update to come through, so you never know. Attempting to sign up from the Google Play Music page reveals that the service is free for 30 days, but if you head over to the Google Play Store in a desktop browser, you can get a much more generous 60 day trial period. The neat thing about these are that you can opt out yourself over at Google’s HQ, if you read through these pages on the DoubleClick cookie in particular.
We will never share or sell these on, except in the rare incidence of a competition in which our promo partner insists on getting access to entries. Everyone loves these two types of entertainment, and life is definitely a lot easier thanks to them. In order for you to keep track of each CD, artist, movie type and director, you’ll need a few good apps and tools like the ones below. However, Data Crow can be used to keep all sorts of data organized, no matter if it’s serious data from work or files that you use for your entertainment.
You can find all version on its website right here, where you will also learn more about the tool. It automatically retrieves information about the items you’ve entered by checking websites like Amazon, IMDB and many more. You can use Delicious Library to organize pretty much everything from books and movies to music and figurines or photos in case you love photography.
You can easily import the list from the web or export it to the web once it’s done, so that all your friends can see what you’ve got in store. You’ll be able to take advantage of this tool on devices running on Mac OS X only, and the price to get it installed is $40.
This one will let you create databases with both movies and television series and keep track of everything you have without wasting much energy or time.
The tool also comes with a pretty generous trial, so you can test it before you make a decision. You can either enter the title or use an URL to help identify the film you’re trying to add. You can rate it, but also add reviews that are going to be used next time you’re looking for suggestions in terms of movies you should watch next.
This way, adding items to your library will only take a couple of minutes, and you can add tags to made searching a lot easier – for example, add “kids stuff” as a tag for movies that you watch with your children. To make it easier to show your friends what movies or music you own, you can also print your libraries. This is the only cross-platform tool that has been created using Python in order to help music lovers organize their collections a lot better.
You can use the AcoustID feature to identify music files using audio fingerprints, and it’s a great tool for tagging. This one will let you add the correct genre, identify the artist and song, as well as the music album. Although this may seem like it doesn’t have much to do with staying organized, you can’t imagine all the mess you’d go through if you had to copy your music files one by one from your PC to your mobile device. This is a tool that costs $24.99 per year and can be used on your iOS device, as well as your Mac and PC. It is basically the Android version of the previous tool and lets you upload a maximum of 25,000 songs to your collection that will be saved to a cloud. By saving all your music files in one plays, it lets you stream the music from one device to the other as long as they have internet connection. You can also do it from your mobile device, and it works with Android, as well as Mac and Windows. The main purpose for the move was to consolidate all services under one address, to make it more attractive and accessible to users of the service. The new owners then promptly shut down my online musical gateway, forcing me to look elsewhere, however the search was grim and I knew there were no real alternatives.
There is something to be said for Google’s offering though, especially when you consider that it’s cheaper than the competition and you can also upload your own music to stream anywhere.
Meaning unlike Rdio you can actually take your existing music and create a consolidated library, as opposed to two separate libraries, as I’ve been maintaining for the past few years. I was left without an option, because we don’t have Spotify here either, but with Google Play Music arriving, that might change in the near future. Either way, I would relish logging into the Google Play Store to see all of the options available to me, but for now, just for the Music, I have to say thanks Google, you’ve really come to the party at exactly the right time.
Spotify has more relevant social features, sure, but the library feature on Google Play Music is unbeatable. To listen to my CDs on my phone, I have to import them with Banshee (on Ubuntu) or iTunes (on Windows) and copy-paste the MP3 files into the internal memory of the phone using the USB cable. As a matter of fact I can think of several Google apps that would make great offline Chrome Apps.
Working with video files locally is much easier than waiting for them to upload to the cloud. Most of the music that I owned from the decades before that is DRM locked but the stuff that I continue to want to listen to is available on GPMAA anyway. So If I have an Android connected to my stereo and GPMAA is playing on that device, I want to be able to control it through GPMAA on a laptop or on another Android device. Especially the capabilities of playing local files, since I can’t buy music from Google Play Store in my country, and there is a limit of how many you can upload. Unlike paying customers, the streaming service comes with only six song skips per station per hour (similar to Pandora), and doesn’t allow for saving songs for offline listening. Once the icon turns orange it will mean that the music has been successfully downloaded in your device!
Each song can only be downloaded twice and after that you are prohibited from downloading it again.


Two fan-favorites are ASTRO File Manager and Root Browser but there are a lot of others you can get via quick search of the store. So where are these Google Play music files located, so that you can rename and place them in a proper folder accessible by any music app?
After you’ve found those music files you just bought from Google Play, simply move them from the Android data folder to your Music folder. Other advertising partners (such as AdClick Africa) may also drop a cookie on your machine. In this case, it will be made very clear in the T&Cs for that compo that this will happen.
No matter what your favorite music genre or type of movie is, you’ll always have a hard time keeping your collections organized if you like to gather a lot. Just to familiarize you with it before you give it a try, you should now that this one is a cross-platform app that also comes with a portable version. It also supports many languages including English, Dutch, Spanish, German, Italian and French. If you’d like to analyze the data a little more into detail, you can see how much money you paid for each film, a genre breakdown, as well as data sets based on the year when the movies were launched. While it doesn’t come with a mobile version, the one for your PC will be extremely useful in terms of organizing your movies, books, CDs and even games. You can install this one of your PC as long as you’re using Windows, and you can learn more about the requirements from the official website.
Besides, it also does a great job at adding tags like music genre, album and artist without making you waste too much time. You’d most certainly end up having some files there and some others there, and you’ll lose track of what you have. It helps you store all the music to the iCloud, so that you’ll always have access to your library and have it more organized than ever before.
In case you don’t have a Google account, you’ll need to create one here so that you can take full advantage of this tool. When he’s away from the keyboard, simpler things like hiking, mountain climbing and having a cold drink make his day.
The main aim of the service is to create a counterweight to Apple's iTunes service which is also offering different media in one interface.Google Music users who open the service's website now are automatically redirected to the new website, where they can use the service in the same way as they did previously. Add the fact that you can Chromecast your synced music and you’d be a complete fool not to at least try Google Play Music. This is why I’m so stoked about Google Play Music, there is finally an all in one music solution that I want to use. It’s vital because it means that Google is willing to expand its Play Store and associated services in South Africa. Sound Search would be nice as well please Google, considering it uses Google Play Music’s database for identifying songs. More service providers need to be aware that South Africa might be a developing country, but our mobile-centric usage provides a unique space for them to operate in.
Would have given the section a real boost and momentum from the beginning, rather than the spattering of apps that are currently there.
There is no button that will just let you download of your music at once, probably because Google does not want you to. Now that your entire library is in a single playlist, you can head over to the Play Music app to download it.
Obviously, this will take a huge chunk out of your data so it is a very good idea to be using Wi-Fi for this. Users from all over the world can upload music to the service, or grab free music to add it automatically to their account. That’s because Google has now made its streaming music service Play Music available in South Africa.
At the moment we can’t access Google Play Movies, or Newsstand subscriptions or buy devices from Google.
And the more service providers we have in South Africa, the closer to a first-world experience we’ll be and I think I speak for all tech lovers when I say that it creates an extremely exciting prospect.
To combat that we are going to use a neat workaround that will let you download all of your music in one swift strike.
Scroll all the way down to the bottom while pressing your Shift button and then click on the last song of your library. Tap on the headphones icon in the upper left corner to bring up the menu and select Playlists. Also make sure you have enough room left in your storage for your music, otherwise some tracks will not be downloaded. You can find the actual mp3 files and retrieve them so that you can use them anywhere you want.
Only users from the United States can use the music store right now to purchase music on Google Play.
True packaged apps for Docs, Music, Pictures and everything else one would need to have a completely functional device.
Google plans to update its Android and iOS apps soon, but the web version (and thus the Chrome OS version) is live now. This will simply select every single song you have in there, a necessary process for our next step.
Now that all your music is here, downloading new music should be much easier as you will not have go through all of it individually.
If you are unsure about the rooting process, check out our guide right here to learn more about it.
Everyone else receives the dreaded "unavailable in your country" error message.For those users, Google Play My Music is nothing more than an online storage for music that they have uploaded or grabbed freely. They also need a variety of upper end laptops and maybe later on PCs for production purposes. If you like to play music in the interface, you probably have noticed that you can only control the music if you click on the tab first to activate it.
After that setting has been configured, scroll down till you find your newly created playlist and tap on it. There is no option to change the hotkeys, which means that you may run into incompatibilities if other extensions are also making use of the same hotkeys.
