    I copied several music files to the android tablet.
    Google play music is no use to me.
    A cannot get rid of the recommendations.
    Dont like it's cluttered UI.
    Can I play the music without the omnipotent google?
    I wont download music
    Do I need an app at all?
    Thanks all

    Most any music app off the play store will work. I use Pulsar+ for ALL of my music, downloaded and transferred from PC

    Google Play Music app is more for purchasing and streaming music from Google Play than for just playing your music files. There is probably an app named Music or Music Player that came installed on your tablet that you can use. For a more full featured music player I like the Power Amp app.

    PowerAmp and Neutron are the two I use. But as said, there are a huge number of music players, any of which will do what you ask.

    (I uninstall Google Play Music personally, it's of no interest to me).

    Of course you can, we do it all the time on Android in China. And I can assure you Google is anything but omnipotent, especially around these parts.

    What's your music source, if it's just MP3s or something stored on the device. you don't need any third-party apps.

    What country are you in, and what actual phone, tablet or TV box have you got there?


    Google Play Music may not be available unless you're in the United States.

    The question is what apps are preinstalled on your tablet. You could ask in this forum that is dedicated to your tablet. The online users guide for your tablet says ...

    Music Player

    Learn to listen to your favourite music while on the go with
    the music player. The music player supports the following file
    formats: mp3, aac, ogg, wma, flac, m4a.

    You can also play music files in the following formats
    if you open them from My files or the web browser:
    mid, xmf, rtttl, imy, rtx, ota, amr, wav, mxmf.

    Some file formats are not supported depending on
    the software of the device.

    If the file size exceeds the available memory, an error
    can occur when you open files.

    Playback quality may vary by content type.

    Some files may not play properly depending on how
    they are encoded.

    On some Samsungs it might be called "Milk Music", which plays MP3s stored on the device as well as Samsung's own streaming and music store.
