Now let's see how this tool works:

Step 1. Connect your Android device to your computer

Start your Android music manager - Assistant for Android on your computer and link it on your Android tablet or phone using a data cable. The Android program will recognize your device and display it on the main window showing all the data in the left panel.

If you haven't enabled the USB debugging on your phone, the Android data managing tool will be failed to detect your phone. Therefore, you have to follow the instructions below to open USB debugging on your phone.

For Android 2.3 or older, Go: "Settings" < Click "Applications" < Click "Development" < Check "USB debugging".

For Android 3.0 to 4.1: Enter "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check "USB debugging".

For Android 4.2 or newer: Enter "Settings" < Click "About Phone" < Tap "Build number" for several times until getting a note "You are under developer mode" < Back to "Settings" < Click "Developer options" < Check "USB debugging"


Step 2. Delete/Export music from Android

After establishing connection between your phone and the program, you can start to delete or export the songs now. Just click on Music option from the left to show all the audio files on your device on the right side window. Preview and select the music files you want to remove or export from your Android device and then you can:

- Delete the files: tap on the "Delete" button from the top menu bar to remove the selected songs.

Permanently Remove Android Music with Cleaner Software

Some users may want to use a cleaning software to directly remove the unwanted songs so here, we would like to suggest you to use the Android Data Cleaner. As its name suggests, this is a professional software to clean the Android phones like Samsung, Huawei, LG, HTC, Motorola, etc. The highlight of this software is that it can permanently wipe the data on your Android phone. In other words, all the files that are erased by this tool won't be restorable.

At present, this software only supports the "Erase All Data" mode for Android devices. So please backup your Android files before deleting the data or you will lose all the files permanently.


Tutorial to completely clean Android files:

Step 1. Download and install the software

First of all, you need to download the software by clicking the icon below and then go with the instructions to properly install it.

Step 4. Remove the Android files

Finally, just click the "Erase Now" button, and tap "delete" on the pop-up window to confirm your action. Then all the files on Android, including the songs, will be removed from your Android phone immediately.


Both software above are helpful to clean the Android music but I think the assistant software would be better here cause it won't affect other files on your phone and you can also manage other data like photos, videos, messages, etc. with it. Anyway, just choose the one you like to delete music from your Android phone or Tablet so you can better enjoy the device.
