    You are able to download music for offline use.

    This is straight from Google:

    1.Open the Google Play Music app Google Play Music Icon.
    2.Touch an album or playlist.
    3.To start downloading, touch the Download icon.

    You have to use the Google Music App to play offline music I believe.

    Honestly, I don't believe that there is...at least not an easy way without a computer anyway. Google Play Music will allow you to "cache" (download) songs for offline use, but they aren't usually visible to other music players.

    The bottom line is that you would need to get the actual MP3 tracks stored on your device somehow. Obviously the easiest way would be to use a computer to transfer the files or put them on the SD card. That's a limitation of the app you're trying to use...it's meant for playing local music files, whereas the Google Play Music app can play both your online library AND local files.

    I'm sure you have your reasons why you want to do this, but my advice would be to use the Google Music app instead.

    You can't do that. I think the offline download is in a format only the Google Music app can read, hence why you can't find it on other music players.

    When downloading music for offline use via Google Music you must use their app. You cannot access the files to play with another media player.

    The reason for this is due to security. Someone like me who has all access (their streaming service) could then download tons of songs and basically steal them if the actual mp3 files were available... But they are hidden for this very reason.

    If you want your music from Google Play you will have to download it via a computer and then place it directly on your phone.
