If you have some music files stored in your Google Drive, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to play them everywhere and without having to download them first. Here’s how you can do just that.
Play Music Directly from Google Drive
Log in to your Google Drive and find the music file you want to play and right-click it. In the menu that comes up, click “Open with” and then the “Connect more apps” option from the menu.
Now, in the window that comes up, search for Music Player for Google Drive and connect it to your account. Don’t forget to set it to be used by default. That way you won’t need to go through these steps each time.
Now, just right-click the MP3 file you want to play, go to Open with > Music Player for Google Drive and allow access to your account when prompted. Note that it also supports MP4, OGG, WAV, and AAC music files.
Your song will play without a problem, and from now on it will do so directly. It’s also worth noting that if you select more than one track, a playlist will automatically be created. You can always click “Add audio files from Google Drive” to add more songs to the playlist.
