How to Buy Music for Your Android Tablet

It’s possible to get your music for your Android tablet from the same source where you get apps for your Android tablet — the Google Play Store. Getting music is covered right here:

  1. Open the Play Store app.

    You can find the app on the Home screen or, like all apps, on the Apps screen. You can also get to the Google Play Store by touching the Play Store icon in the Play Music app.

  2. Choose the Music category.

    The Music category is shown at the main screen. If you visited the Google Play Music store from the Play Music app, you’re already viewing the Music category.

  3. Use the Search command to locate music you want, or just browse the categories.

    Keep an eye out for free music offers at the Play Store. It’s a great way to pick up some tunes.

    Eventually you’ll see a page showing details about the song or album. Choose a song from the list to hear a preview. The button next to the song or album indicates the purchase price, or it says Free for free music.

  4. Touch the price icon to purchase a song or album.

    Don’t worry — you’re not buying anything yet.

  5. Choose your credit card or payment source.

    If a credit card or payment source doesn’t appear, choose the Add Card option to add a payment method. Sign up with Google Checkout and submit your credit card or other payment information.

  6. Touch the Accept & Buy button.

    If the Accept & Buy button isn’t available you’ll have to touch the check box to agree to the Payments terms.

    The album or song is downloaded to your tablet.

A notification appears when the transfer of the album or song has completed. You can then use the Play Music app to listen to the new music; you’ll find it quickly by choosing the Recent category from the Play Music app’s main screen.

  • All music sales are final.

  • If you plan on downloading an album or multiple songs, connect to a Wi-Fi network. That way you won’t run the risk of a data surcharge on your cellular plan.

  • The Google Play Music notification icon is the same icon that appears when you download a new app for your tablet. The notification name, however, is Google Play Music.

  • You’ll eventually receive a Gmail notice regarding the purchase. The Gmail message is your receipt.
