Google play music helps you to access your songs from anywhere. The songs are supposed to be uploaded before you access them from somewhere else. The music you buy through the Google play, will already get added in the Google play music library. If a file that you are uploading, is available with the Google play music, it will suggest you to download there version, which may be of a higher quality. If the song is not available with Google play, it will upload your version of the song.
Download and then install music manager in your device. Follow the installation directions. Open music manager from the start menu in your device. You need to have a Google account.
