    Does anyone know how to use this? I just purchased an album through Google Music. However I want to download it on my phone so I can listen to it in my car, when not connected to the internet. It seems the only way to listen to my album through Google Music is when I'm connected to the internet. Even when I select make available offline, I need to be connected to Wifi?

    "Make available offline" works fine for me, I don't need to be on wifi for it to work. I think there are settings which allow you to download your songs without being on wifi.
    But really, you should just stream it! I only have like 100 songs downloaded but I have like 7000 on my Google music. Never had any problems streaming FROM THE CLOUUUUD

    If I'm not connected to Wifi the album is greyed out, even though I made sure I checked available offline. I just want to download songs to my SD card to play on my phone, like my ipod. Is Google Music not a good way of going about that? I don't think this album is even in MP3 format.

    When you selected make available offline that tells the app to download the music to your sd card. I have a handful of my favorites downloaded for when I wasn't too listen to music without being connected...... like travelling on an airplane. Not sure why your phone is not downloading the songs. Haven't, under settings, there are options on when the app should download songs like over WiFi only or whatever.

    Yeah I see that now, it says it's downloading but it's been stuck on 19% for the past 8 mins, I hope that it pushes through. Basically I don't want to stream music through my phone, I just want to dl it to my phone and play there. Also it says that there's 8 GB available in the bottom of the GM app, but my SD card is 16 GB. Does that mean it's downloading to my internal phone memory?

    Haven't purchased a song yet, but I uploaded my entire collection of 2500 songs over the last 2 days. It's nice that I can listen to my music and Podscasts.

    How is the battery drain using Google music, as opposed to using songs just placed on the SD?

    I just used the PC Media Sync mode and Windows Media player for mine. Transferred about 9GBs worth of music just fine, took awhile but works great.

    Will you be able to stream those songs from the "cloud" to your phone then from your phone to a network receiver like an Onkyo?

    I stream Google Music 2 hours+ everyday in my commute to and from school and any extra drain has not been noticeable on my already heavy usage (Screen on 3+ hours, browsing/gaming for 2 of those) as opposed to my previous SD music only usage.

    I use WiFi at school(3G when the wireless connection eludes me) and at home.

    If your music doesn't download I would clear and uninstall and try again it might just have gotten hung up on something.

    OK so I read that you can download a song/album from Google Music to your PC via web only twice. Does anyone know if I download a song from Google Music to my PC if it's in MP3 format? If it is would I be able to put that on my iPod as well? TIA
