Apple users who have moved to Google's Android operating system might find it difficult to sync their iTunes collection with their new Android devices.
Instead of leaving their music files behind in their iOS devices, users can instead upload to the new OS using Google's Music Manager. Any song added to iTunes can also be automatically added to Google Play music library.
Since the files go into Google's cloud storage, one would have to depend on the date network for listening to music.
Following are some steps users can follow to upload music to their Android devices instead of using the internet route.
Following instructions are only for Windows PC.
