    Hi there,
    Coming from an iPhone where I have about 50GB of music stored on my phone..

    Wondering if it is possible to download the whole of my music (which is also stored on Google Play) to the SD card on my S8 plus for offline listening? As in doing it via Google Play Music, rather than downloading them on a cruder drag and drop method.

    I can't seem to figure out a way to just download all songs in one go. Or maybe I'm just being stupid (which is very highly likely, lol)

    Thanks

    A whole massive library? All in one go?

    Hey there

    Do you mind if I ask another quick question please?

    So I did this last night. I put my music on to download as high quality and there is 114Gb downloading (I should have hit normal quality, but once I'd committed, I'd committed.)

    Anyway, it's been downloading since 10pm and it is now 4am here and up to 65%. I've had it on charge the whole time and the battery is sitting at 76% which makes me think the whole thing is CPU intensive. The phone is also hot (it's on the wireless charger which could be part of the reason.)

    My question - which may sound silly so forgive me - is: is this likely to damage the phone? If the CPU is being put under so much pressure in one go, can it burn out from this? Or is that what is it designed to do? I'm probably worrying about nothing but, y'know...

    I doubt it will be an issue.... You might want to plug it in instead I notice all my wireless charging phones get hotter when charging wirelessly vs plugged in.

    Does Google let you chose where it downloads yet? I remember in the early days it would cryptically name files and the bury them in subfolders so you could never find them other than accessing them from Google play music.

    Yes you can pick SD Card or Internal, they still may be "cryptic" however.

    Google Play Music still encrypts them so other apps can't access them (yet).
