Here are 4 tips on how to always have music on your Android phone!

1. Save the songs to your MicroSD card

Many Android devices have a microSD memory card slot. They serve to increase the storage space of mobile phones which are generally quite scarce, especially on the cheaper models. The great advantage is that we can carry files saved on the card, such as music tracks, to other phones that also have the slot.

To store your music on the microSD card of your Android smartphone is simple. Simply connect your phone to your desktop or notebook via the USB cable that comes in the box. Your phone appears in the file explorer of the operating system, which in the case of Windows Windows Explorer. With two clicks on it you can start browsing the folders of your smartphone. Search for the Music or Music folder and open it with two clicks.

Then go to the folder on your PC or notebook where your music is saved. Now just copy (Ctrl + C) or drag the songs to your phone's Music folder and wait for the download to finish. Okay, after that just disconnect the phone from the PC and open the standard Android music player. All of your songs will already be listed on it, ready to be heard.

2. Welcome to the 21st century: listen to streaming music!

Youtube is an example of streaming feature. This means that you do not have to download the content (in this case, videos) to consume it on your mobile phone. You can watch while the content is still loaded.

4. I don't have a microSD card, I don't want to pay for streaming subscription and I don't like listening to radio. And now?

Let's say your phone doesn't have a memory card slot or you don't want to subscribe to a music streaming service. Let's also assume that your smartphone's memory is low and on edge. That is, no chance of putting music on your device. Well, the only solution in this case would be to buy a device with USB OTG.

OTG stands for On The Go. This type of connection allows you to plug devices such as flash drives and external hard drives through the phone's microUSB port and play MP3 files stored on them. It's not as practical as the ones mentioned above, but at least you won't be without listening to music on your phone.
