    Default Google Play Music

    When I buy music from Google Play store it appears in my Play music, how do I put it on my device? I bought it I should be able to have on my device not just on Play Music.

    You can cache music as B points out, but if you're talking about using other media players things get more complicated. You'll have to download the songs you want from Play Music with your computer, then load them on your phone. I don't believe the way the app caches music can be read by other apps.

    Oh yes, you're right about that. I wasn't quite clear on the original question until you pointed that out.

    Tracks downloaded directly from Google Play Music onto your phone are stored in a hidden folder with a coded filename, which I consider a soft way of preventing easy music piracy. As zorak950 points out, you can still download the tracks on your computer, and then transfer them via USB or directly onto a microSD card. Those MP3 files could then be read by a 3rd party music player.
