    I was wondering because some of my songs are on both, but most aren't. I want to use Music Squares, but it sucks without all my music. Thanks in advance!

    No. Google uses its own proprietary music setup - even when you pin music to your phone you can't find/identify it.

    So, unlike Amazon, you don't REALLY own it - you can just listen to it.

    Thank you! That's disappointing though.

    It depends.

    If you bring your own music to Google Play Music, yes - you own it. The OP could copy the files to his phone and use any player of his or her choice.

    If you buy music from Google Play, yes - you own it. To use another player, you'll have to download every song from the Google Play Store and manage the files outside of Google Play Music.

    If you subscribe to Google Play Music All Access, no - you don't own the music. You're just renting and you have to use Google Play Music to play the songs.

    I don't use All Access. I own all my songs. So I would have to use my computer to get the songs to the Music Player? I was hoping I can just do it on the phone.

    I stand (well, I'm lazy - I sit) corrected - thanks for the clarification.
