Google Play includes an online music store that offers two different services, One is digital downloads of albums and tracks and the other is a subscription service called “Google Play Music” that allows subscribers to access Google Play’s entire library of subscription content via streams and conditional downloads on authorized devices.
Once in the locker, the music can be streamed on the web and any device, and even stored for offline listening on a mobile device. You’ll be able to access your songs on up to 10 authorized devices per account.
In addition, artists are able to create an “Artist Page” (see more on this below) which features the artist’s albums for sale, as well as additional information and media such as band photos and an artist bio.

HOW GOOGLE PLAY SELLS YOUR MUSIC
Does Google Play sell your music via?:
PAY RATE (HOW MUCH GOOGLE PLAY PAYS YOU)
For songs downloaded individually in Google Play, you will be paid the wholesale price of Google Play’s retail price. For example, your wholesale payout for a download of a single will be $0.70; a download of an album will be $0.70 x no. of tracks with a maximum payout amount of $7.00 per album.
When a subscriber streams your music, you get paid a proportionate share of Google Play’s subscription revenue per month calculated on terms set out in TuneCore’s blanket agreement with the store (this usually excludes streams during a subscriber’s free trial). Payments will fluctuate each month, depending on the amount of subscription revenue generated and how often your music was streamed.
