Reduce Data Use of Google Play Music on Android

The Google Play Music Android app is a great way to stream music and discover new artists, but it can also take a serious bite out of your data allowance (especially if you have a limited one). Luckily, you can reduce streaming data use.

Now, scroll down to Streaming. If you want (especially if you have a very limited data package), you can set the app to Stream via WiFi only, but that will limit your use quite a bit. If you still want to use the mobile network, but want to reduce data usage, click Mobile networks stream quality.

On the menu that comes up, select a lower quality stream. Depending on how good your ear is, you may not notice much of a difference. Or if you’re busy and on the go, higher quality might not matter as much.
