New Google Play update is every music lover’s dream come true

Published Feb 25th, 2015 8:45PM EST

Google announced on the Android Official Blog this week that the music storage limit for free Google Play Music users has been bumped up from 20,000 songs to 50,000 songs. You can stream or download any of those 50k songs to your phone, tablet, computer or Chromecast.

If you aren’t taking advantage of this free service (which is available to anyone with a Google account), follow these instructions to get started:

  1. Sign in to Google Play Music – Go to your computer and visit Sign in with your Google account if needed.
  2. Claim your free storage – If you’d like to try our subscription service too, click “Get Started.” Otherwise, click “No Thanks” to continue with the free storage.
  3. Add your music collection – The setup process will guide you through adding our Chrome app, which provides seamless uploading. You can choose to simply upload your entire iTunes library or select other music folders.
  4. Access your music everywhere – You can stream or download music to your Android, iPhone or iPad for easy offline listening. It’s also all available on the web when you’re on your computer. And best of all, when you upgrade to a new computer or phone, your music comes along, too.

If you aren’t on Chrome, you’ll have to download the Music Manager instead of the Chrome app during step 3, but you’ll still have the same 50,000 song storage limit.
