Ways To Get Your Music On Google Play
To keep it short and sweet, there is really only one way to upload music onto Google Play.
Yes, you can take uploaded songs on other platforms and download music that way.
But that's not exactly music distribution, and your song won't appear on the platform for everyone else!
To get on Google Play Music, you'll absolutely need a distributor.
Use A Distributor
Now, there are many different music distributors that music artists can chose from to get their music in the google play music library.
If you're looking to distribute your music on all platforms for free, you should utilize Boost Collective!
Benefits Of Google Play
Unlike SoundCloud, or YouTube, Google Play offers a variety of artist tools.
In the Google Play music manager, you used to be able to upload music straight from the YouTube Music App. This function no longer exists, unfortunately.
Google play offers a variety of different functions for listeners! Google Play is a web browser, and app like Spotify. It allows users to start listening by creating their own playlists.
Like Spotify, Google Play allows listeners to discover new tunes, and upload music from their YouTube Music library. You can also listen to podcasts on Google Play!
Google Play Music Library
It's a great platform if you're looking to create a "library" of music.
Like the iTunes library, it offers the ability to upload songs, create a music folder, and listen to uploaded music offline. Through the download music manager, you're able to create your own entire library of google music!
Google Play also allows you to upload high quality audio, and album art.
Although it isn't our #1 platform, we still believe that the more streaming platforms you're on, the better.
How To Promote Your Music On Google Play
There are a few ways to promote music on Google Play.
We recommend using the best-known tactics an artist can do on a daily basis.
social media promotion
word of mouth
search engine optimization
The best way to promote music on Google Play is to cater to people that already use the platform.
It's a very hard platform to win people over in this case.
That essentially means, you can't switch people from one platform to another.
By utilizing basic marketing strategies, you can promote your music on any platform!
More Platforms = More Ears
At Boost Collective, we know that the more platforms you are catering your music to, the more potential eyeballs your music gets!

The easiest and cheapest (free) way to get your music on the google play music library, is to utilize the power of Boost Collective!
All you have to do is upload your music to this form, and you're music will be on Google Play!
