    In case you have avoided Play music because it lacked true offline music support, the most recent update to the app may interest you.


    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.music&hl=en

    As per the changes -

    v5.3.1316M
    * SD card support for offline music on KitKat (Experimental support on some older devices)
    * Added ability to shuffle all songs from an artist in All Access
    * Made it easy to share links of songs, artists and albums to your favorite social networks

    As far as I know, it's always supported offline music - just hasn't supported SD cards (which aren't officially supported by Android anyway).

    You could have it locally cache content by flagging tracks or albums, this is a true offline feature now that will play music files off your sd card that you can add/remove/swap at will easier and faster than play's previous cache feature.

    The issue with the first version of this is that offline storage would cache music in a way that it was only playable by the Google Music app.

    I saw that when I downloaded the update, and went into settings to select the SD card, but. . .

    I've been playing music from my SD card using Google Music almost since the time I got my S4.

    I suspect the difference might be that it will automatically download purchased music to the SD card if you ask it to do so.
