Re: Google Play Music on SD Card

Hi edmonddantes1829, you aren't able to transfer music downloaded from the Play Store to the SD card as this music is protected by digital rights management, to prevent unauthorized redistribution of digital media and restrict the ways consumers can copy content they've purchased.

You could but you will have to root your phone

Re: Google Play Music on SD Card

Have you looked at the Music Mate app? I use it to move Google Play music from the phone's memory to the SD card and to make music from the Play Store visible to the Walkman app, which I much prefer to the Google Music app. I love it - I was so happy when I stumbled across it and was able to free some space on my creaking old Xperia Ion!

You can try the app free, to move 50 songs. After that, there is a charge to allow you to move unlimited songs.
