    Hi guys,

    I am getting the Galaxy S6 on Friday and will be moving all my music from iTunes to it. I think I know the process of getting the music from iTunes to Google Music to put on the device, but iTunes has always compressed my music to save space (down to 128kbps). Can this be done with Google Music or is there a process I can use to achieve this? It saves me about 2-3GB of space on my iPhone and I don't have good enough ears to notice the loss in quality.

    Yes. Download the Google play music manager. Once downloaded, select import your music library from iTunes and they will appear in the your play music app. The only compression is whether or not you choose to listen either Wi-Fi or Cellular data.

    Just in case, Google music manager is installed onto the pc you have iTunes with your music files.
