Samsung Galaxy S5 Save Google Play Music on SD card – How to change location

If you are using on your Samsung Galaxy S5 the Google Play Music app, then your downloaded songs are automatically saved to the internal memory of the smartphone. However, since the space of the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be expanded with a Micro SD card, it makes perfect sense that downloaded music files are saved directly to the micro SD card. This works very easy if you set the appropriate settings correctly within the Google Play Music App on your Samsung Galaxy S5. We show you here how to set the right setting within the Google Play Music App to save the music directly to the external memory card.

Open on your Samsung Galaxy S5, the app "Google Play Music". Wipe now from the left edge of the screen the menu bar into the display. Select in the menu "Settings". Now scroll down a bit until you see the entry "storage location". Select the item and it will open a window with the following options:

  • Internal
  • External

Now choose the entry“external”so that the Google Play Music songs are automatically saved on the micro SD card.

You know now how to change the storage location for music on the Samsung Galaxy S5, which are downloaded via the app Google Play Music.
