Hardly any of us listen to our music on MP3 players anymore; instead, music is now mostly heard on PCs and smartphones, if not on stereo systems.
Although the Android operating system has open-source code and allows users to dub music, doing this wrongly would nullify all your efforts. In order to be able to load music on an Android mobile phone, there are typical methods to follow as shown below.
Download music from YouTube
Although many music on YouTube is copyrighted, you can still legally download music from YouTube using an online youtube downloader. You can search for online apps that will allow you to download music from YouTube. You may have to convert your downloaded music from mp4 to mp3 before transferring it to your Android phone.
Transfer music via the SD card
Transferring music using the SD card is one of the easier methods.
- Remove the SD card from your Android device. (To do this, remove the back of your Android or open the SD card slot on the side of the smartphone.)
- Check whether your laptop or PC has an SD card slot. If not, you can connect an SD card reader to your PC / laptop or use another method.
- Insert the SD card into the computer or card reader. After the SD card has been recognized as a removable disk by the PC, you can transfer all songs.
- Now insert your SD card back into the smartphone to be able to play the songs on the Android.
Transfer via USB cable
You can also transfer music to Android phones using a USB cable. Please pay attention to the connection mode of your Android. There are big differences between the MTP mode and the standard mode. You can transfer files directly via a USB cable or transfer them efficiently using reliable and tested software.
Using the App on Google Play
Android users can download apps, music, films and books on Google Play. Here’s how to transfer music to Android using Google Play:
- Download and install the Google Play Music Manager.
- After the installation is complete, start the app and upload all tracks to the cloud. Depending on how many titles you want to transfer, it will take some time.
- Install the Google Play Music app on your Android. This can be found in Google Play.
- After you’ve uploaded your music to the cloud, you can open the app and sync all the tracks on your Android.
All methods presented are particularly useful for transferring music from computer to Android. The first method is particularly simple and suitable even for non-tech people to load music onto Android.
Although the SD card method is simple, it can get annoying in the long run. But it could be annoying having to take out the SD card every time to save music.
With Google Play you can sync your music anywhere, anytime, but unfortunately, it has limitations and takes a long time to upload. The Apowersoft Smartphone Manager offers an excellent solution for the connection between your Android and your PC as well as transferring the tracks from PC to Android. Thanks to the fast transfer speed via USB you will save a lot of time. Compared to uploading the files to the cloud, it seems safest to store the files on your PC.
