    Googly Play Music has a setting to download music on the external SD Card, which i have set on my phone. The music I downloaded takes 3 GB on the SD Card and it shows that it is in fact downloaded on the SD Card but it still takes up 3GB on my phones storage as well. How do i fix this? why is it happening? I cant download any apps because of it, help please!

    Something is strange, since the device does not have 3GB of space in its internal memory.
    Please describe where you see the "takes up 3GB on my phones storage as well".

    You see how it says that my phones memory is full, its the strangest thing. I don't know if this is a glitch that's not fixable

    I am signed up with google play music as well and have checked and unchecked every box possible with no difference. Still uses the internal storage.. Since I don't download, just stream, I just clear data and log back in again.......Strange...
