Some music can't be streamed

Some music on Google Play can be purchased but can't be streamed using a subscription to Google Play Music. A song's availability for purchase or streaming may depend on agreements with an artist or music label.

If a song isn't available for streaming, you can buy it on Google Play to add it to your library.

Most music on Google Play is available for streaming and the number of albums and artists available is constantly expanding. If a song you're looking for can't be streamed using Google Play Music today, it may become available for streaming in the future.
