You can store your music online through Google Music which is a excellent app that allows users to store their playlist of 20,000 songs that is almost 195 GB of data on net. The drawback associated with this app was that you must have internet access and that too of high data plans since you have to go through the whole playlists each time you want to listen to your favourite song. Even this problem was solved by Google by adding the feature of keeping some music files local to your device which are high in your priority list.

Clean up on downloads:

The downloaded material is kept in a separate folder everywhere so whenever we use those files, the material takes space twice. Those stored in the downloads folder is useless and can be deleted to increase the memory space.

To delete the downloaded file, just press long on the file till a menu opens from where select the delete option or tap the garbage icon on the screen. If you are not able to apply this, you can even do so manually by connecting your device with the computer and deleting the unnecessary items from the downloads folder.

All the above four ways are efficient enough to increase the memory space of your android device or Nexus 7 but it depends on your comfortability level that for which option you opt for.
