Google Play Music update includes SD support

Google Play Music allows you to play any music file on your Android device without having to look around in your Android directories for it. Unfortunately, the Play Music app did not have the ability to Play Music on a Micro-SD Card, and for people with little internal storage on their device, this was a big problem. Luckily, the new Google Play Music update fixes this problem. The update description states that the Micro-SD Cards are compatible with devices running Android 4.4 KitKat, and still experimental with devices not compatible with KitKat or devices that have yet to update to KitKat.

Putting the obvious aside, you will need a device capable of a Micro SD Card for this to work, and not all devices have the SD card slot. Also, if you aren’t using KitKat, it might not work, or it may work but with some bugs.

Of course the lack of being able to use an SD Card may not seem like a huge problem – you always have internal storage right? Unfortunately, the standard Android device comes with a 16 GB maximum, and most of the storage is taken up by formatting and the OS, on top of that is app and other media, which is why Micro-SD has become a growing option, and this update really helps with that.

The update has officially become public, so wait for it to ask for permission, or just keep hitting that refresh button on the Play Store until it shows up. If you don’t already have Google Play Music, be sure to hit the download link below.
