Start Consolidating itunes libraries

Consolidating itunes libraries

Thankfully, i Tunes makes this seemingly tedious chore a simple one.

From your One Drive Music folder, there are two ways to initiate a download.

You can download an entire folder by clicking Folder Actions from the menu at the top and then choosing “Download folder.” Or you can select certain files by mousing over their album art and checking the box in the upper-right corner when in Thumbnails view.

If your music collection has spiraled out of control across the cloud, then it’s time to consolidate it.

We will show you how to take music across three of the more popular cloud music services — Amazon Music, Google Play Music, and Xbox Music — and consolidate them into the most popular music manager, i Tunes.

To move from One Drive to i Tunes, you will follow the same two-step route as Google Play Music of first downloading the files to your computer and then adding them to i Tunes.

There’s no need for a One Drive app, as this can be done in a browser.

Cloud-based music services lets you listen to music from a multitude of devices — from a tablet in your kitchen to your phone on the subway — instead of only when seated in front of your computer where your local music library may reside.

The problem arises when you have your music collection spread across multiple cloud services and lose track of which songs you have on which service.

For starters, you don’t need a separate app to download music from Google Play Music but you will need to use Chrome and the Google Play Music Chrome extension.

With the extension installed, open Google Play Music and choose either the Album or Song view.

Mouse over an album or a song and click the button with three vertical dots, which is typically next to the song title.
