Working seamlessly with Google Music, Google Play™ allows you to find music you love, whether new or familiar songs. You can check out staff-picked emerging artists and great bands from your favorite genres, get personalized recommendations based on what you listen to—not just what you buy, and rediscover lost gems in your library by creating an instant mix.
When you purchase music on Google Play, it’s automatically stored in your Google Music library for free—and it does not count toward your storage limit. You can listen to your music on your Android-powered devices with the Google Music app as well as on any web browser, by simply logging in to your account.
Your music is always ready to be played or downloaded instantly, and all songs and albums on Google Play are high-quality 320kbps MP3 files, the most common format for digital audio storage. There are millions of songs to choose from and no matter whether you bought your music on the web, on your tablet or on your phone, you can always listen to it from any of them at any time.
With Google Music, you can instantly access your library anywhere and anytime, no syncing or wires needed. As long as your Galaxy device is running Android 2.2, Froyo, or a more recent version, you can stream music and listen instantly. You can also save your favorites to your mobile device to play them later, when you’re offline. Because the Galaxy S™ II and Galaxy Tab feature a dual core processor, you can always count on skip-free playback and a smooth interface for finding your favorite tunes.
Keep all your music in one place. Anything you get from Google Play is automatically stored in your Google Music library and you can add up to 20,000 of your own songs—all for free—with Music Manager, a simple desktop application that allows you to upload files from your computer. Music Manager can upload your iTunes and Windows Media Player library, playlists, playcounts, ratings and more. Once your music is uploaded, you can access everything on your Galaxy S II. With Google Music, you can search your library, create playlists, edit song information, and even rate tracks. Because your music collection is online, you won’t have to synchronize your devices every time you make changes. It’s all organized in one place and available to play anywhere.
Excited about a great new band? Let your friends know about your latest discovery. When you buy songs on Google Play, you can share a listen with your friends on Google+. You can even share a song preview with your Google+ circles without making a purchase.
