Google Play Music: How To Upload And Download Songs

Published

on

google play music

Before All Access, before the orange and the white took over Google Play Music, it was simple: you loaded your music and streamed it anywhere. It was a simpler time. It was a better time. These days, so many people use Google Play Music without loading their libraries. Whether you want to download the music you purchased, upload your own music or just save music to your phone to listen to it offline in the car, here’s how to manage your Google Play Music library.

Different ways to upload and download songs on google play music.

 

  1. How to download and upload music in Chrome

Downloading and uploading music can be done quite easily in Google Chrome, thanks to Google Play Music for Chrome. This web extension adds a mini-player to Google Play Music while listening on your PC, and also adds the needs behind the scenes to download and upload music from Google Play. Keep in mind before using Play Music for Chrome that using it to download or upload music will add that PC to your list of devices, so you should make sure that the PC on which you are using it is what you will normally use.

To Upload:

  • Touch the three-line menu icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • Touch Load music.

to upload

  • Drag and drop your music in the window.
  • If you have not yet added Google Play Music to Chrome, Google will ask you to add it so you can start uploading.

To download a song or an album:

  • Touch the three-point menu next to the song or album you want to download.
  • Touch Download.
  • If you have not yet added Google Play Music to Chrome, Google will ask you to add it so the download can begin.

to download

You can only download a song or album twice through the Google Play Music website and Chrome extension, so keep in mind, and if you plan to download or upload, change from Google Play Music for Chrome to Google Play Music Manager

2. How to upload and download music through Music Manager

Google Play Music Manager was originally the only way to put or remove your music from the music blocking service of Google Play Music, and although the program is a bit old, it works well and, most importantly, works in the background, so I do not have to look at it very often. Music Manager is available for Windows, Mac and various Linux distributions; in fact, it is compatible with almost all the most important laptops/desktop operating systems, except Chromebooks.

After downloading and installing Google Music Manager, you will enter your Google account and then you will be presented with some options:

  • Upload from iTunes, or Windows Media Player, if someone still uses that, or load music from specific folders on your computer.
  • If Play Music automatically loads new music from iTunes or your folder.
  • If you want to download your library, you can choose only download free or purchased music or your entire library

Once you have applied your settings, simply close the window and let the program run in the background while you use your computer normally. Because the application depends on loads and downloads in the background, it is not too fast, but it also does not clog your computer’s Internet speeds while you manage your music. Loading your initial library or downloading your entire library will depend on how many songs you have and how fast your internet is, but if you have thousands of songs, I give you one or two days to finish uploading everything. Your times may vary but your patience will be rewarded.

Why we can’t upload music on Android

You’ll notice that for a Google service that is so mobile-oriented, Google Play Music does not really have a way to upload or download music directly from its Android application. The “download” option that appears in the Google Play Music app is similar to saving for offline playback on Google Play Movies. The music is on your phone, but it is encrypted, so no other music application can watch it or play it.

At least for the download side, I can see how that could be a bit risky, especially when you get paid subscription songs involved in offline downloads. However, more than five years have passed, and it’s time for Google Play Music to have an option to upload your music directly through the Android application, especially when the device you upload or download counts to the limit of your device. If Google Photos can automatically scan your phone and ask if you want to upload photos and videos to any random folder on your phone, curse it, so can Google Play Music. Do not have users go through a desktop broker.

Save albums or lists Playback for offline playback

  • Open the playlist or album you want to download.
  • Touch the download icon next to the three-point menu icon.

 

Do you want to download an individual song? Well, you have three options: download the entire album of the song, add it to a playlist and download the playlist, or activate the settings in the next section.

How to save music automatically while listening

Do not want to bother with going and manually downloading each album, song and playlist you’re listening to? It is not a problem. Google Play Music has a nice hidden feature to help users download music for offline playback while they stream their libraries. Music in cache during streaming is a great option that you should activate immediately, whether you spend a lot of time without Wi-Fi or just want to make sure it is not tuned if your trusted Wi-Fi connection fails.

  • Touch the three-line menu icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • Open configuration.
  • Play the music from the cache during transmission.

How to automatically save new podcast episodes

Having new podcast episodes downloaded and ready to listen without having to search for them while connected to Wi-Fi is a boon for frequent travelers, and Google Play Music makes it very easy to keep the latest episodes downloaded to your phone. However, there is one caveat: Google Play Music will only automatically download 3 episodes at a time. Therefore, if you listen to a podcast that is updated every day, or sanity helps us several times a day, the automatic download may not keep everything you have not yet heard downloaded unless you are really aware of your subscriptions.

  • Touch the three-point menu on the podcast page.
  • Touch Subscribe if it is a podcast you have not subscribed to before or Manage subscription if it is a podcast to which you are already subscribed.
  • Touch Automatic download to activate it.
  • Touch Subscribe if this is the first time you subscribe to the podcast or if you have already subscribed.

The most challenging skill when trading and investing in cryptocurrencies is to track your violent price fluctuations. Bitcoin is an excellent example of this, reaching more than $ 13,000 in early January, just one tank below the $ 10,000 mark on Wednesday night.

But how can you keep up with the ever-changing world of digital currencies? Simple. Use an application

Android and iOS users can choose from a large number of applications designed to list some of the popular cryptocurrencies around the world. We list four remarkable examples.

Apps To Monitor CryptoCurrency Prices

CrypTick (Android)

CrypTick is a newcomer to the Android application space, but that does not mean it lacks brightness.

In any case, it is the most straightforward, lightest and cleanest application on the list, extracting data from six Internet coin exchanges. Next, list the fluctuations in a 24-hour chart.

Users can also search for some cryptocurrencies, from Bitcoin to Ripple. And if there is a currency you would like to keep an eye on, CrypTick allows users to post it on the application home page.

However, the most exciting thing is that the developer allows users to disable ads without paying a fee completely.

ProtonVPN: Best Free VPN Launched On Android

Published

on

protonvpn

Thanks to the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability that ignited its ugly head in October of last year, VPN services have become more valuable than ever. A quick search in Google Play Store will reveal a lot of VPN applications to choose from, and while there are legitimate options, there are also others that send you to spam with ads, sell your data and even install malware.

ProtonMail has just launched its ProtonVPN application for Android and has the potential to be the best free VPN solution to date.

You can start using ProtonVPN immediately after downloading it to your phone or tablet, and even with the free version, you can do almost anything you want. Bandwidth or data usage limits will not be affected, ProtonMail will never use your VPN service to sell your browsing data to other companies, and most importantly, it will not install any annoying malware. That may sound like a no-brainer, but unfortunately, you do not see how 38% of all Android VPN applications install malware on devices without the user’s permission.

It’s worth taking a look at the free version of ProtonVPN, and if you like what you see and want, even more, ProtonMail has three paid levels to choose from. These vary in price from $4/month to $24/month and come with features such as more device support, faster speeds, access to servers in unlimited countries, and more. It’s worth noting that the free option only allows you to use three countries and has acceleration speeds, but the lack of a data limit still makes it worthwhile to take a look.

SatSleeve:How To Transform Your Android/iPhone To A Satellite Phone

Published

I find it somewhat awkward that there is cell phone coverage at the top of Mount Everest. However, there are many dead places in my neighborhood. One way to get guaranteed cell phone coverage anywhere around the globe is to own a satellite smartphone, and presently you can transform your existing smartphone into a satellite phone by just sliding it into a case.

Yes, it’s correct, you no longer need a dedicated satellite phone. What you need is a Thuraya SatSleeve. Earlier we wrote on how to turn your phone into a CCTV camera

Just slide on your sleeve and VOILA! You have a satellite smartphone.

In addition to offering support for SMS messages and calls, the latest SatSleeves also have satellite data functionalities for emails, instant messaging, navigation, etc.

Yes, calls and data will cost you a good price (do not be surprised if they add up to several dollars per minute, depending on where you want to use your phone). But for those moments when you just have to make or receive that call, nothing beats a satellite phone.

The SatSleeve comes in three flavors:

  • SatSleeve for iPhone: the adapter for iPhone 5 / 5s is inside the package (adapters for iPhone 4 / 4s and iPhone 6 / 6S are available through Thuraya Service Partners)
  • SatSleeve for Android: the adapter for Samsung Galaxy S4 is inside the package (adapters for Samsung Galaxy S3 and S5 are available through Thuraya Service Partners)
  • SatSleeve +: a universal case compatible with a variety of iPhones and Android devices.
    There is also a version of Hotspot that is more of a desktop-mounted satellite phone hub, unlike a case that fits your existing smartphone.

The SatSleeve also has a built-in rechargeable battery to extend the battery life of your smartphone, and there is an optional solar charger for those occasions when your adventures take you away from an outlet.

The SatSleeve is not a cheap solution, it costs around $499, but if you need coverage where there is no ground transportation service, this might be what you need
