    Default Google Play Music

    So I have downloaded some music onto my nexus 10 and was hoping that this would sync to my nexus 4 but it's not. I've tried refreshing etc but nothing happens. Does anyone know why it's not syncing? same with downloaded movies... can anyone help? I tried moving the music to dropbox and opening on my phone but it won't play.

    Are you logged in with the same google account on each? Also, it needs to actually be loaded into Google music's server to sync, is that done?

    thats not how music/video syncing works. if you download on phone it stays on phone unless you move to PC and sync it via the music manager.

    google drive now had the video streaming capabilities so you can use that for video

    Actually, that's not correct. You can load music into the Google music server from the phone itself. You can use music manager from a pc, but you can also use the phone to load it

    I'm pretty sure you can't upload music to Google play on your phone. I've never been able to. If toy know how please tell.

    For me I had the music loaded into an sd card. I opened up Google music and it said select music or purchase from Google play (I had none loaded into it at the time). I selected the music from the sd card to put into the app and it let me play it. It also uploaded it to the server because I had access to it on my other Android devices.

    Well of course it let you play the music on the SD card, but if you're not mistaking something, this would be the first I've ever heard of syncing from device to cloud to 2nd device, without ever touching a computer.

    Well if it's in the server, just like with the music manager upload, it should sync across all devices if you're logged into the same account. I believe that's networking 101 when it comes to the cloud. Apparently you haven't used a decent cloud service if it doesn't work like that. Icloud, Dropbox, even email works like that now. If I receive an email it shows up on all of my devices, not just one. Even if I create an email on my phone, I can continue it on my laptop.

    If you want to stream music from dropbox, try using cloudaround lite, I use it to stream music from my box.net account.
    Just remember that it will require a wifi or data connection.

    You misunderstand. Previously you were talking about music on your device being automatically synced to the cloud. What you just referred to, However, was data already on the server. Receiving an email on all your devices is also irrelevant, because that is incoming, again, from the server side, and is not local. If you're absolutely certain the music you only had locally on one device is somehow available on other devices through Google Music , would you care to explain how you got it done?

    I've long had and still have local music files on my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. They show in the Play Music application under "Recently added," and I play them through the Play Music application. They are not part of my Play Music library (read: non-local library), and have at no point shown up in my library or on any of my other devices. It would be cool, sure, but I think that only a small minority of Play Music users would be in a position to use such functionality.

    Just my $0.02.

    Yes, I believe I already did but I will again. It was quite simple, and it surprises me it hasn't been noticed. I opened the Google play app on my phone, and I had nothing loaded in it at the time. It said I could buy music, but I had the option to select music I had on my sd card. It let me play it, and I noticed it showed up in my library for the app. I noticed on my other Android device that the music showed up in the app as well even though it. Never had the music on an sd card or in the app before on that device. I was logged into the same account on both, and I guess it uploaded my music automatically. Is it something that's not supposed to occur? I noticed it when I updated the app a while ago, so maybe that did it. And sorry for getting irrelevant on the email part, I was just trying to explain something and I ran out of ideas.

    See, we're just all confused because you're describing a feature in Google Play Music that doesn't exist.

    Doesn't Google play music have a matching service like iTunes does, now? Maybe it's matching what it finds on the device.
