    Is there a way I can move my songs from the google play store into iTunes. Many articles which help out. But can I sync those songs with my devices from iTunes?

    I don't want to download the play music app. So if i have music downloaded from the play store, can it get into my stock music app on iOS via iTunes?

    Does the sync work normally like the other music on my computer or does any of the DRM thing apply?

    Probably, you need to try it out yourself, assuming you have a computer.
    Apple one does not have DRM but not sure with google music.

    Actually this is for research. I don't have any purchased music as such. But would like to know.. the move to iOS link on Apple website doesn't specifically cover this. Not do any other articles.. can you help out here for a bit?

    Does Google Play allow downloading of music as files? If they are normal files (M4a, MP3, WAV) without DRM (M4p), you will be able to transfer them to iTunes, then sync them to your iOS device. Unfortunately if Google Play Music uses DRM, you will not be able to do so.

    You have to download the files to a computer to add then add them to iTunes.

    Failing that just download the google music app, sign in and they will be there for you to stream or download to the iOS device for offline playback.

    Why not just buy songs in iTunes. All music sold through iTunes is DRM-free, and you can use it in Google Play as well if you like.

    Of course, this applies to *purchased* music. If you're "renting" music via Apple Music or Google Play subscriptions, you can't download it to keep.

    There are cases which customers wish to save their previous purchase when possible. Buying the same song on multiple stores or multiple sources is not a good choice for many.
