How do I play music from Google drive?

    Google Drive can play music via the built-in audio player, but only one song at a time! In other words, there appears to be no way to automatically play an entire album from start to finish. Instead you have to manually switch to each song one by one.

    I've tried searching the web for free third-party solutions, but no luck. For example CloudPlayer only works for a 30-day trial. Most other players (like VLC for instance) simply can't access Google Drive. I'd expect that Google's own Play Music app could access Google Drive but I can't find any option to do so.

    Surely somebody knows how to do this. But if not, any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Well that's a potential workaround, yes. But I guess I'd like an app where I can just play the music directly without the hassle of first downloading them to the phone and then deleting them when I'm done.

    Thank you but unfortunately that's for Google Drive in Windows, not android.

    You could upload the music to your Google music and listen to them that way.

    Well I'm down for a different service if that's what's necessary. But Google music is demanding my credit card info and I can't do that. Thanks though.

    if credit card is an issue, why not get a visa gift card and ues that? it works just like a credit card but it is not tied to you financially.

    mikedt 你好

    I've never had that happen, Google Music wanting $$$, although I've never stored music on Google. I've only used Drive for documents and the occasional ROM I've shared.
