    The latest update to Google Music allows you to store "pinned" music to the SD card. Works like a charm on S4.

    You are not on stock then or are you on GE? Changelog mentions that on KitKat only.

    As I mentioned in another thread, Google Music has played music off the SD card for a long time, even with stock unrooted units. I think this is just a change to where it will automatically store it.

    It's not about playing music off the SD, it's about 'pinning' purchased music (offline play). Until now or always used the internal storage, but now you can change the settings so it stores it on external SD cards.

    Ah, thank you for the clarification, Gomjaba! That was not clearly specified in the original post.

    Stock. If you read the fine print, it says "support for some older...."

    I gave it a shot, and nothing happened. Bummer...I thought.. Then after 30 min (maybe longer?? maybe after a reboot??) I noticed an icon in my notification bar at the top. When I pulled it down, it said "moving to SD...."


    And as stated, it's about playing "pinned/offline enabled" songs purchased from Google Music. If you're not rooted, you can't select the songs from the android/data.... folder. It's not even visible.
