when I want to stream one particular song I noticed that the Google Play Music app downloads and caches the previous/next few songs for quicker access. How can I prevent this? It uses a lot of data and I usually only want to listen to the one song I chose to stream.
For example if I play a 6 mb song i noticed it uses about 40 mb to stream just that one song. Then I selected a different song to stream and immediately went into settings > download queue and noticed it was loading more songs than the one I requested. I only want to listen to the 1 song I chose, so how can I prevent the other songs from loading? As far as I can see there is no way in the app's settings but there has to be another way to stop this inconvenience.
P.S. I have a T999 galaxy s3 running on stock rooted ICS
There is an annoying playlist on my Nexus 5 on Play Music app. It is under Auto Playlists and is called "Last added". I can't seem to delete it, which is annoying. I don't know if these auto playlists will go away after some time by themselves, but if not, do any of you know how to delete the playlist?
Btw, I used iSyncr to transfer my music from Mac to phone, and I didn't have that playlist before.
It looks like ics automatically runs the "Android is Upgrading" thing whenever it senses some "change" in boot.img? It happens everytime i flash a kernel, without wiping dalvik cache. It will continue to run regardless of whether the dalvik cache files are present or not. This is actually a good feature.
But i noticed that if i simply do a nandroid backup of /boot, and restore it without doing anything else, or flash the same kernel again, it will boot up with the "Android is Upgrading" thing again from the start.
is there a way to disable this, or at least prevent dalvik cache generation if they are already present? im using amon Ra recovery

I'm facing the infamous problem of "not enough space" when downloading from the market, while I actually have plenty of space. The ultimate solution seems to be moving download cache to the SD card (symbolic link). The problem is that the download cache with ICS and Google Play isn't located in /cache/download anymore, and I have been unable to find where it is located both searching with Google and browsing the filesystem.
I am running a cm10 based Rom on my note 2 and as such can't move apps to the sd card through the usual channels. I was able to get my play music cached songs to store on the external sd and any way to do the same for Google Play magazines as they take up more room.
Recently I've been having an issue with Google Play Music where when I play a song, it plays for a second then pauses, so I have to press play to get it going again. This occurs repetitively which means I can't listen to music.
It happens on songs that are being streamed and on songs that are on the device.
Funnily enough, if the song is played through ES file explorer and the little play music popup window comes up, it plays fine.
I've got this issue on both my devices, a tf101 running 4.3 and a nexus 5 with stock 4.4 rooted.
Edit: just remembered, I've also got this issue with MX Player and videos. I can't figure out what's wrong.
Streamed videos played through the gallery video player work fine.
I currently have an iPhone 4S and I am probably going to get a Galaxy Note 2 when it comes out for Verizon. In order to prepare for this, I set up Google Play Music to upload my music so it can be ready for me when I get my new phone (I like it better than Samsung's default music player). Only one problem: protected AAC files (or DRM) can't be transferred to Play Music. I tried converting my music with 2 different DRM converters, but they were free trials, and it only would convert 1:00 of each song and then stop. Is there any free way to convert each protected song completely, along with protected videos? Also, does music on Play Music eat up an Android device's space? I have over 12 GB of music and movies and I don't want to have barely any any space left on a 16 GB device if a 32 or 64 GB ever comes out, minus the SD card.
I have music that is playable with Google Play Music player, but not with other players. I have chosen for the music to be "on the device", and it plays when even in Airplane Mode, so I know it is not streaming, but the music files do not show up in my "Music" directory tree, or under any other file trees that I can find. I have used ES File Explorer to do a top down search for some of the missing titles, but it doesn't find them. I'm perplexed. There must be a cache somewhere, but I can't find it.
Trying to find a way how to move music from google play to the stock music player. It has better sound quality, in my opinion, than google play itself. Any way to get music from google play to the music player app that comes with Android Ics.
I'm looking for an alarm clock app with one very specific feature - allow me to set the alarm tone to automatically stop after X seconds, then start again at the next snooze interval, and play for another X seconds.
Sure it seems every alarm app out there allows me to set Snooze intervals and stuff, but with my waking up habit, I don't like to physically have to touch the phone to get it to shut up until the next snooze interval. I like to lay in bed and let the alarm go for like 3-4 snooze intervals before I finally wake up.
I've tried Alarm Clock PlusV2, Alarm Clock Xtreme, Quick Alarm. None of them seem to have this.
I have a Nexus 4 with a considerable amount of "pinned" music in the Play Music app taking up storage space. This pinning seems to have taken on a life of its own, and I'm finding that the app is permanently storing music locally that I never wanted downloaded.
So my question is this: what's the best way to completely clear everything that's been "pinned" so far, and start over? I knew how to unpin music in the app before the recent design refresh, but now I'm not seeing it anywhere. Is there a way to just unpin everything through the app? Or can I use a file manager or connect the device to a PC and just delete the music files?
I use Google Play Music. Over time, I've chosen certain albums to store locally ('pin') from music.google.com on my Android 2.4 phone. Now I wish to clear these out from the phone in the name of space and begin anew.
Without an apparent way to do this on the phone (?), I connected the device to a computer and wiped out the Android music directory's files manually.
Then, when I returned to my phone's Play Music app and attempted to choose new music to pin to the device, Android is re-downloading *all* of the music I had previously chosen to store locally, completely defeating the purpose of this pursuit.
Is there a way to start fresh on the phone without deleting music from URL....? I simply want to download a select few albums to a device from my Play Music account, not everything I have ever selected to pin since my history with the service.
I recently started using the Google Play Music free service, so I uploaded my complete music collection with the Music Manager software, everything is cool but I noticed that some of the album art looks kinda bad on my Nexus 7 (I guess is because the resolution). So my question is, if I were to change a tag of a song on my PC, will it be automatic updated to my google play account?
My Samsung Galaxy Y phone is keep automatically updating apps that I don't want updating. I already know how to turn off auto updates through the play store so I have and it's not doing no difference. It keeps auto updating every few hours and really starting to get on my nervous because I can't download anything because with all this stuff downloading it keeps saying I don't have enough space.
I'm selling the phone and getting a different one that if defiantly NOT an android because it's nothing but a load of rubbish.
I was having issues with my TF700 so I did a factory reset, and reinstalled CM 10.1. Unfortunately now the play store was updated to 4.0.26. I think this version is horrible so I uninstalled the updates to it resetting it back to 3.10.14. Cool, except that it keeps silently upgrading back to 4.0.26 after a while. Is there any way to stop it from doing this?
In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
Until recently, I had a BB Storm2. When I would stream Pandora (via the aux port and headphone jack) while driving and received a call, Pandora would pause and the call would be routed to my Jawbone BT.
Now I have an S3 (and loving it!) with ICS. Although Pandora will pause, the audio seems to remain routed through the aux headset and not to the BT headset.
I can hear the call ring notification via the BT headset, but once the call is answered, there is no apparent BT functionality.
I've tried to search through the settings for phone, BlueTooth and Pandora and have found nothing that seems to work.
I have disabled Auto-Add Shortcuts in the Play Store settings but it seems to still keep adding them to my home screen every time I download an app. Have only noticed this behaviour since I started using 4.2.
Just was wondering, after updating a rom, or titanium backup restore of all your apps. Seems that they dont get set in the play store to "auto update", so usually I have to wind up doing it 1 by 1. Was there a way to mass set the auto update on all my apps? Cause the Play Store Settings, while set to auto update for new apps. Only will be applied on apps installed from play store, not from a restore from backup.
today i bought Point of View ProTab 25 Tablet. last night i read this thread "[ROM] Point Of View Protab 25 with root" and today i brought it home and every thing were working just fine. so i decided to root it by following the steps in the previous thread, so i flash it with the uploaded firmware, and after it finished, the device become very slow and the "auto rotate" didn't work.. so i flash it back with a firmware that i installed from: Point of View official website and now camera stop working..
How to play audio from a stream in android? I will get input stream from an online link( like continuous FM). I need to cache the stream and play it. I searched a lot in sites,,,but didnt get.They show option of playing from a stored file. There is no option to play from a stream.
I bought new htc one x+ (ATT) and when I connect this phone to my car via USB, I am not able to play music. While using Aux it works great but I loose the ability to have control over the steering wheel. Unfortunately I don't have a Bluetooth in my car. I would really love to see this work, there should be some solution for this. I used to have iphone 4 earlier, and it was working great. I switched to android-- htc one x plus, I like this phone, its a great phone but it lacks some basic features like this one. The only problem is with USB in Car i am not able to play music but the phone gets charged .
Does anyone know how to store the album art of a music album into a cache? I already have my album arts fetched from my content resolver. But I would like to store them inside a cache (probably, a hash map) so that it will not need to fetch the images from the content resolver again but from the cache.
