Purchasing music content from online music services by using the player

If you connect the player to a Wi-Fi network, you can purchase music content from online music services. You need to install an online music service app in advance.

Check the service guide for the provider you use. Each service provider has different downloading procedures, compatible file formats, and payment methods. Note that the provider may choose to suspend or terminate the service without notice.

  1. Turn on the Wi-Fi function to connect the player to the internet.
  2. Swipe the [WALKMAN Home] screen upwards, and then tap (Google Play).
  3. Search for the desired app.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the app.
  5. Launch the app.
    If necessary, follow the instructions from the provider to register an account, select a payment method, and so on.
  6. Purchase music content.
  7. On the library screen in “Music player”, tap (Update database).
