    Hey guys so I was putting music on my phone, and I had more than there was room for on the phone. So instead of buying a card, I uploaded my music to google play. The first time I did this it uploaded to google play, and the music automatically showed up to my phone when I logged in with my google play account. Now I have added some new music to my google play library, but it isn't showing up in my phones library. How can I fix this?

    Open Google Music, hit menu, settings, Refresh. Should work within a few minutes.

    And if that doesn't work, you can always go settings, applications, manage applications, all, Google play music, clear cache, force stop. Give it a few moments to catch up.. and you should be good.. :)

    Dumb question, but have you logged into your Music account from your computer and verified the music is in your account?

    In addition to the clear cache, you could also clear data and deauthorize your device from the Google Music and then set your account back up via the phone. As a side note, you should not have to do this everytime - you might make sure that you are not showing just offline music or something to that nature in the Google Music app (from your phone) settings...

    Another way I've fixed this that's a little less involved, is to open up Music Manager on my computer, remove the folders then add them again. It won't reload all the music up again, just the new stuff and it worked fine after that.

    I'm a little fed up with the app Play Music (and I'm a fairly technical user).
    All of my itunes music (at least the 2000 songs I have in it) are confirmed to be uploaded to Google Play's cloud.
    I cleared the cache on my device and finally can see my online library through the app Play Music.
    I want to download all of that music (2000 isn't really that much) to my HTC Rezound so that I don't have to stream it all the time.
    Effectively, I want to use my phone like an iPod. I cannot figure out for the life of me why this is so complicated.
    I can now see the pins to select, but they are all "greyed out".
    What am I doing wrong?

    You have to be in Albums, Playlists or Artist view to select music to download. When I do that and go Menu>Choose on-device music the pins I see look greyed out, but I can select them and then they turn bright. Are you having something different?

    Also, this is probably a dumb question, but if you want them all on your phone, wouldn't it be faster to connect your phone to your computer via usb and drag and drop them to your card?
