    When you purchase a song from the play store, it doesn't get stored on the phone and can only played through the play music app and cant be played or moved to the other music player.

    You can tell it to be available offline and then find it on phone, or download to your pc and move to phone. Least that's my experience in the past. I've then used ringdroid to turn a song from Play into a ringtone.

    I was going through the same thing with songs I purchased from Google play. Then I downloaded Cloud Music Importer from the play store and all those songs went to the music player. Because when you buy music from Google play they are only available on the Google music player.

    I use power amp btw.

    Cloud Music Importer moves all of your Google play music to PowerAmp for you.

    musicmaniac app is awesome for downloading songs straight to your SD card. large variety and you can search by artist, album, or song title.

    I use Amazon as well. They give you the option to download the song to your device or play it in the cloud. In addition you can have something like 7 devices share the same account.
    Seems pretty ridiculous to not be able to download a song you purchased to you phone. Even more, having to either go through another 3rd party app or your PC just to get it on your phone. I can understand if you paid for the monthly fee for the unlimited music service, but not purchasing songs.

    So I'm afraid to ask at the risk of sounding stupid but do I have to download an app in order to get music from Amazon onto my phone?

    You can download Amazon MP3 from the play store or you can use "Play Music" which should be loaded on your device already. I prefer Play myself.

    i've bought all my new music for the last 8 months from Google Play. i pin the albums to my Note 2 as well as my Note 10.1 tablet.

    for my old iPod, i download the albums and upload them to iTunes.

    i also keep my own mp3 copies on my laptop and thumbdrive just because

    as for playing the music, i just use the Google Music player on my Note 2

    Download the Music Mate app as mentioned above. Just did it and it works perfectly! It will download all google play music so that any player will be able to see them. You are allowed 50 downloads before having to pay for the app.

    This really sucks. The Google Play Store just released a whole album by deadmau5 for free and I excitedly l downloaded it. Now I see that Google makes it difficult for music downloaded from their store to show up anywhere else on the phone aside from its own music player. I'm glad to see that there is a workaround to fix this but in the future, when it comes to buying music, I think I'm just going to stick to using Amazon since they make music download from their app visible to all the apps on my phone not just their own music player.

    Yes music mania is a good app but for mostly main stream artist or bands like Taylor Swift or Maroon 5, when ever I try to look up indie bands they never show up

    If your android supports an external SD memory card then from the Play app
    go to Menu > Settings > Storage location > and change to external.

    Then while in settings go to music manager. Try refresh first and go check to see if your music moved over to your SD card (android>data>com
    google.android.music>files>music).

    If it didn't then you have to remove each download through the Play app and then download again (the orange downloaded icon). Go back to Menu>Settings and refresh.

    Now you can move or copy from SD card to wherever. Your songs won't have correct titles so you will need to rename them.

    Now all music you download will be found on your SD card.

    Good Luck!!!
