To put up to 20,000 songs into the cloud there is no cost and signing up to Google email is free. Neither the app, Google Web Player or Music manager cost anything, either. All that will require you parting with cash is downloading a song or album, which you can avoid doing if you upload your own tracks.

Single tracks cost between 79p and £1.29, depending on the original vendor, and for an entire single of four tracks, expect to pay a penny around £2. For albums, Now That's What I Call Music 83 will set you back £8.49 - much less than the iTunes asking price of £12.99 in this instance. As you would expect, there are savings to be had if you opt for a whole album rather than buying each song individually.

Songs can be previewed from within the Google Web Player or Google Music App for 90 seconds so you can find the track you want and/or see whether the latest album from a preferred artist is worth a download or not. Knowing this, you can save yourself some wasted pennies.
