    I have a ton of music on my phone and uploading it all to Google Music would save me a lot of space. But not all of it was purchased by me. Some was given to me by friends and acquired via torrents and whatnot. If I upload this questionably obtained music to Google Music am I going to have any legal trouble? Will this eat up my battery if I'm listening to music I've uploaded? I understand this requires a data connection to be used and that seems like a battery killer.

    I am not getting into the legality of your music with you.


    Any legally obtained music can be uploaded onto google music and the songs are available to you any time you have a data connection. It will drain battery at about the same rate as downloading anything else, with the exception being you'll most likely have your screen off.

    So it probably will hurt my battery life. I think i can live with that. But do you think Google is going to narc on me?

    Slightly unrelated, but Swype knows the word narc without my adding it to the dictionary. Weird.

    I do not believe you need to worry about it. Nothing will tell how music was required only if right management is on or off.
