Hi there, by saying "Download Google Music to computer and transfer to your device.",I mean that you can download music from google to store on your computer and then transfer the music manually from your computer to your devices by inserting your devices in the computer. If you use an iPhone, as is recommended in the article, you can try gMusic.
