Problems with Google Play Music App
I have a Samsung S4 mini. This is my first smartphone ever. I have been using the Google Play Music app (picture of Orange Headphones) to buy and play music on my phone.
Here is the problem.
I purchase a song. Then I go to My Library to find and play the song but it does not come up in my list of songs. I have to type in the name of the song for it to appear.
Every time I purchase a song, I have to type in the name of the song, play it and then add it to a playlist. It wasn't such a big deal when I bought one or two songs at a time, but it's a pain when I purchase a whole album of songs and have to remember the name of all the songs in the album. I have to write down the name of each song (otherwise I won't remember each one), then one by one play each song and add it to a playlist. If I don't play the song, it doesn't show up in my Library.
Another annoying thing about it. When I go to My Playlists, by default it first lists recently played playlists, then auto playlists, then finally all playlists. So each time I have to scroll all the way down to get to all of my playlists.
I finally got fed up with this and called Verizon, who transferred me to Google support and I talked to them. The guy there recommended I use Pandora. He said the Google Play store doesn’t always work. But when I do a search for the Pandora app, it’s just radio.
I downloaded the Double Twist app, but I can’t figure out how to get the music I currently have on my phone into it. And I can’t figure out how to purchase new songs.
I don't understand why Google Play Music doesn't automatically know when I've purchase a new song and just add it to my list of songs.
Is there a different user friendly app I can use to buy and listen to music on my phone? Please remember this is my first smartphone and I'm not familiar with smartphone terminology. Thanks for any help.
