  6. Select the music from your computer, and drag and drop it into the upload window.

Method 4: Sync music from computer to Android via cloud

Similar to the Google Play Music point above, we can follow this method for other cloud service providers such as Google Drive, iCloud, and OneDrive. Simply upload your music from your computer to the cloud storage, get the relevant app on your Android, and access your music from the cloud on your device!

Take care not to accidentally upload duplicate tracks to your cloud storage. Cloud services usually charge for more space, so be sure to clean out your cloud storage regularly to save yourself space and money!
