The ideal way to manage your music

Music Manager is an easy-to-use, simple, and straightforward desktop app supporting Google Play Music. With this program, you can upload your favorite songs to the Google Music Library. The app gives you the option for automatic uploads or manual uploads of individual songs. Simply put, Google Music Manager is the perfect way to transfer songs to the music library without any hassles. Within the app, you can tweak some settings to automatically detect music from Windows Media Player, iTunes, and other storage media apps on  Windows or Mac computers.

Organize your music seamlessly

Music Manager is a simple yet useful program. If you don’t use the Chrome browser, you won’t be able to upload songs through the website.  You'll have to use Google Play Music Manager instead for Cloud support. With this program, you not only have the ability to upload music by playlists or tracks; you can even download an entire collection on your computer directly from Google Play Music Library.

Music Manager comes with several options, which let you define whether all the music folders should be automatically uploaded to the Google Account or not. This can be quite helpful if you’re constantly looking for new songs on the computer. With Google Music Manager, you can even control the bandwidth usage for uploads.

In case you’re looking for a smooth process to store music on the Cloud, and don’t wish to buy a subscription or pay for a music app, Google Music Manager will be an excellent choice. On the other hand, if you’re looking to try or discover new songs every now and then, a service like Spotify will be better.

Is Music Manager easy to use?

Users find the software’s interface intuitive and minimal. You can use the program from the get-go and won't need any technical knowledge. On the right side of the app’s main screen, you can notice a tabbed interface, which toggles between different settings, including Download, Upload, About, and Advanced. You can find all that you need within these four tabs. On the left side of the app’s screen, there’s a button to access the Google Play Music media player.

How to use Music Manager?

Just like Winamp and other popular media players, Google Play Music is quite easy to use. The same is true for the Music Manager, which complements Google Play Music in every regard. Since it runs in the background on Windows PCs, you'll find that it won't affect system performance. When you purchase, rip, or download new music, the Music Manager automatically uploads the songs to your Google Account. You can access these songs through the Google Play Music website or app on your devices.

In order to start using the app, you need to download and install the Music Manager application. Once the download is complete, you’ll notice the simple interface. All you need to do is click the ‘Upload Songs to Google Play’ button. 

For uploads, you'll have to choose the location where you’ve stored the music on your computer. In case it’s available in the Windows Media Player or iTunes,  you can select the specific option. Similarly, you can browse through your hard drive to choose the correct folder. Music Manager even lets you choose the ‘Other Folders’ option, just in case you aren’t sure about the music’s location.

When you go through this process for the first time, Music Manager offers to constantly monitor the locations for new music. If you click ‘Yes’, the app keeps running in the background, and automatically monitors and uploads files from these folders on the PC to the Cloud. You can even visit the ‘Settings’ option to change the folders that can be accessed by the Music Manager.

To summarize, the ‘Upload’ tab in the program lets you add a wide range of folders to the Cloud, and the same section of the app allows you to remove certain folders. On the other hand, the ‘Download’ option provides you with access to the files in the Google Play Music Library. Additionally, you get access to numerous free songs available in Google Play. From the ‘Advanced’ tab, you can change different settings, including bandwidth usage for downloads and uploads.

With Google Play Music Manager, you also have the ability to create playlists. This is an amazing feature and saves a good amount of your time browsing through many songs. There’s also a feature called ‘Instant Mix’, which automatically creates playlists based on preferences and search history.

Is Music Manager compatible with iTunes?

The best part about Music Manager is that it’s compatible with iTunes. You can upload the entire iTunes library to Google Account. It lets you stream the music on an Android or iOS device. However, all the files will be converted to MP3 as part of the transfer process. It’s worth mentioning that some files may be corrupted, especially if they’ve been purchased before 2009.

It goes without saying that Music Manager is an excellent choice to complement Google Play Music on your Windows PC. While there are occasional issues with uploads, the overall usage of the program is hassle-free.

A great app for Windows PCs

As per feedback, Google Music Manager is an ideal choice for Windows PCs. Apart from uploading songs, the app provides a list of songs it couldn’t upload. You can use this information to raise issues with Google support, whenever you encounter errors in uploading the music. Without a doubt, Google Play Music Manager is an easy-to-use, simple, and sophisticated service to upload music to the Google Music library. Since it’s free to use, it’s definitely worth a try. You can also access Music Manager from your Android device.
