About a year or two ago, I decided to use Google Play Music as my "cloud host", so I took all of my old music that I'd had sitting on my computer, and uploaded it to Google Play Music. This is all my own purchased music, mostly originally from CDs (I'm older).
I now want to download some songs onto my Android device not simply so that I can listen to them, but so that I can have the
.mp3 files. (E.g., to edit one down so it can be my wake up alarm, that sort of stuff.)
I cannot seem to find where Google Play Music put any of these. I have not rooted my device, and while I could go there, I'd rather avoid it, if possible. I saw other posts mentioning:
There is nothing in the first 2 directories, and it seems I need root access to get at the last directory. I read some similar posts that pointed to these directories, but some others that said this was for older versions. My version is
6.0.1984S.2219729. And, if it matters, I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and Android version
It's really obnoxious that these apps refuse to play with each other nicely. Google and Samsung just have to kiss and make up, because it's ridiculous that Google apps can only talk to Google, and Samsung can only talk to Samsung. I shouldn't have to scurry around looking for all this. Desktop / Laptop OS's don't have this problem. It's an invented problem to help ensure monopoly ecosystems and frustrated customers. :-(
