How to Buy Music for Your Nexus 7 at the Google Play Store

It’s possible to get your music for your Nexus 7 from the same source where you get apps for your Nexus 7 — the Google Play Store. Follow these steps to get some music:

  1. Ensure that your tablet has a Wi-Fi connection.

    The Google Play Store is an Internet thing. You need Internet access to browse and buy music.

  2. Open the Play Store app.

    It can be found on the Home screen, on the far right end of the Favorites bar. You can also get to the Google Play Music store by touching the Play Store button in the Play Music app.

  3. Choose the Music category.

    The Music category is shown on the main screen. If necessary, touch the App button in the upper-left corner of the screen until you see the main screen.

  4. Use the Search icon button 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 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.

  5. Touch the price button to purchase a song or album.

    Don’t worry: You’re not buying anything yet.

  6. Choose your credit card or payment source.

    If no credit card or payment source appears, choose the Add Card option to add a payment method. Sign up with Google Checkout and submit your credit card or other payment information.


  7. Touch the Accept & Buy button.

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

    The album or song is downloaded into your tablet.
