    Samsung Galaxy Blaze. After the extremely tedious process of moving my entire vast music collection from Spotify (there were streaming problems) to Google's music streaming service, I have but one major issue.

    In the Play Music mobile app, there is a Pushpin looking icon to download playlists or albums, so as to be able to listen to those songs while offline. This is extremely important to me, because I often go out of 4G range while driving around... it's nice to be able to switch to a playlist if/when streaming audio gets interrupted.

    I have a formatted 32gb external sd card. My internal storage is only a paltry 600mb or so. When I download a playlist it defaults to the internal storage, and not surprisingly, fills up in a New York minute. Play Music app Settings does not seem to have an option to direct the download path to the external card. Does anyone know a workaround for this?
