    Is there a way to get Google Music to cache offline music to the external SD card and not internal storage?

    Unless something has changed in the recent update, no I don't believe you can I think Google Music for some reason defaults to the internal with no way to change it. No I could be completely wrong about that, but I feel like I heard that on here before.

    You can move it manually but not by default. I also dislike that you can not download it like from the amazon cloud. Personal preference.

    Huh I don't think that's what the OP meant. I think he's saying when he makes his music offline can it be stored on the SD card instead of internal? If not Google should make that a future feature. Also you do realize Google music is in competition with Amazon MP3. You would have to do that "manually!"

    That's interesting. I would have thought this is not device dependent but based on app and OS.

    It shouldn't be but I was referring to the fact that the galaxy nexus doesn't partition its space like phones that use ext. SD cards.

    With the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7, Google is moving away from SD cards. I think they'd prefer for the various manufacturers to start doing the same (and some have, like HTC). So, it's not surprising to me that they wouldn't include additional support for SD cards in some of their apps, especially for something like this. Beyond system stability and disliking the partitioning (which they claim can be confusing to users, and given how many threads we get around here about the partitioning of Motorola's memory, it seems to be the case), one of the reasons mentioned previously for moving away from SD cards is the security of apps and media content from piracy. Whether you completely buy that or not is another story (because things can be removed and cracked from internal storage as well as SD cards), but given what they've said and done in recent years, it's one of the explanations for the lack of SD card support in hardware and software.
