Leverage the free storage space on Google Play Music in my Android App. Is this possible?

I intend to create an app which will use the free space that Google Play Music provides you to store audio files. Is this possible? If so, how would one go about designing this functionality?

If you navigate to:

https://play.google.com

Click on the hamburger/menu botton and you'll see the "Upload music" link - You can either upload your songs here...

OR

you can download a PC based executable which they call the Google Music Manager found here: https://play.google.com/music/listen?u=0#/manager

My question is.... is there a way to make an Android app utilize the web-portal somehow to upload your music.. and then access it as needed?

Unfortunately, the functionality to upload audio files is not provided in Google's Play app on your Android device. Unless someone codes it, I guess...

Not sure about that particular space, but could the app not use the space provided to any Google user on Google Drive?

Definitely. Is that possible? I will be storing audio files. If that's possible.. where would one begin? What API does Google Drive provide for a 3rd party app to start storing stuff there?

Have you tried asking Google directly?

For example I got: https://developers.google.com/drive/android/
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
