Google Play, the destination for apps, books, games and more, announced that starting today, February 25, 2015, users will now be able to store up to 50,000 songs on Google Play Music for free and stream or download them them to your (iOS, Android) phone, tablet, computer, and Chromecast.
Google Play Music’s cloud based service previously allowed users to store up to 20,000 songs for free.
Protect the music you already own (even your iTunes collection) by transferring it to Google Play’s free music storage service in four easy steps:
Sign in to Google Play Music with your Google account – Go to your computer and visit play.google.com/music. Sign up if needed.
Claim your free storage – If you’d like to try the Google Play music subscription service too, click “Get Started”. Otherwise, click “No Thanks” to continue with the free storage.
Add your music collection – The setup process will guide you through adding the Chrome app*, which provides seamless uploading. You can choose to simply upload your entire iTunes library or select other music folders. You can upload 50,000 songs for free.
Access your music at any time on multiple devices – You can stream or download music to your Android, iPhone, or iPad for easy offline listening. It’s also all available on the web when you’re on your computer. And when you upgrade to a new computer or the latest mobile device, your music comes along too. You’ll never be without your favorite artists again!
*Not using Chrome? The setup process at step 3 will instead guide you through installing Music Manager where you can still add 50,000 songs.
