Method 1: Transferring Music from Computer

If you have a collection of music stored on your computer, follow these steps to transfer them to your Android phone:

Step 1: Connect Your Android Phone to Your Computer

Using a USB cable, connect your Android phone to your computer. Make sure the phone is unlocked and set to ‘Transfer files’ mode.

Step 2: Locate and Open Your Android Phone on Your Computer

Once connected, locate and open your Android phone on your computer. It should appear as a removable disk.

Step 3: Create a Music Folder

Create a new folder in the internal storage or SD card of your Android phone. Name it ‘Music’ or anything that suits you.

Step 4: Copy and Paste Music Files

Navigate to the folder where your music files are stored on your computer. Select the songs you want to transfer and copy them (Ctrl+C) or right-click and choose ‘Copy’.

Go back to the opened folder of your Android phone, navigate into the newly created ‘Music’ folder, and paste (Ctrl+V) the copied music files into it.

Method 2: Downloading Music Directly onto Your Android Phone

If you prefer downloading music directly onto your Android phone without using a computer, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open Google Play Music

On your Android phone, open the Google Play Music app. If it’s not already installed, download it from the Google Play Store.

Step 2: Sign in to Your Google Account

If you haven’t already, sign in to your Google account or create a new one. This is necessary to access and download music from the app.

Step 3: Browse and Download Music

Browse through the available music categories or search for specific songs, albums, or artists. When you find a song you want to download, tap on it and select the download icon (usually represented by a down arrow).

The downloaded music will be saved within the Google Play Music app and can be accessed offline.


Congratulations! You have successfully learned two methods to put music on your Android phone. Whether you prefer transferring songs from your computer or downloading them directly onto your device, these methods should have you enjoying your favorite tunes in no time!
