free music app free storage any device

How many songs can I store? What do those phone icons mean? How do I make a playlist? If you’ve just joined our cloud-based music delivery service or are curious about some of these dashboard features, here are answers to these common FAQs.

How many songs can I store?
MyMusicCloud enables you to upload and store your entire music collection in our cloud completely FREE, so you can access it anytime on up to 10 devices of your choice. You can upload your songs using our Desktop Sync Agent, Dropbox and Google Drive, or by simply clicking the blue Upload arrow icon, found in the top right-hand corner of the dash on our web portal (see image below). The Upload icon opens a box that helps you select and import your music, so you can enjoy any of your 250 songs free seamlessly on any mobile phone, tablet, laptop, Samsung Gear smartwatch, Samsung Smart TV, and more. It doesn’t matter which carrier or brand you have, your songs are always available to play on- or off-line. Don’t want limits on your music library? Choose the “Unlimited” membership and play any song you own for just $40 / year (less than the cost of 1 frappuccino a month).

How much memory do I have left? At the top of the dashboard is the “Account” button. Click on that and a usage bar pops up showing how many songs you’ve uploaded and how much memory is left. If you’ve exceeded your free 250 songs, a CLOUD tab will also appear in the top navigation bar. To move songs you’re tired of back into the cloud, click the Playable tab on the left, hover over any track and click the “-” icon to send the track to storage. Then you can rotate new ones in.

What are the phone icons for? Once in MyMusicCloud, your songs are automatically sorted by tracks, albums, artists, and playlists. On the web version under TRACKS, the phone icon indicates whether that song is synced with your mobile device or not, so it can be played offline. Phone icons with a check mark represent synced songs; grayed-out phone icons with a slash through them are un-synced songs. Accidentally un-synced songs from your phone or tablet? You’ll need to sync them through the website. Read how to recover them here.

How do I play, sync, or delete songs? Move your cursor over a song title and click twice to play it. You’ll also see a blue triangle, or “more” menu button, appear in the lower right-hand corner. The menu button helps you select songs to play next in your listening queue (at right); add a tune to an existing playlist; edit the title of a song; sync it with your phone; or delete it

How do I create a playlist? Just highlight the song you want, click the “more” button and choose “Add to Playlist.” A new window pops up asking you to name the new playlist or add the song to an existing list. The playlist then appears in the bottom left corner of the dashboard, and also on your mobile device once you’ve downloaded the app. (Right now, you can only create and edit playlists on our Web dash, not phones.)

MyMusicCloud Help: How to Access Your Music on Your Smart TV

If you have a Smart TV, you already know you can log into Facebook and Twitter, watch YouTube videos, and stream movies on your TV screen. But did you know that you can also access your entire music collection on it too?

It’s totally true. Our MyMusicCloud app makes your music library available on all Samsung Smart TVs (the most popular brand), so you can play your favorite songs, make party playlists, or check out the latest releases from your favorite singers right from the comfort of your couch.

So how does it work? Once you have a free MyMusicCloud account, it’s simple to tap into it from your Smart TV. On Samsung TVs, just go to the Smart Hub and follow these steps:

1. Click the Smart Hub button on your remote control. If you don’t see the MyMusicCloud app on the front page of your Smart Hub, go to “Samsung Apps.” Press the down button to highlight the text box for searching, then use the voice controller to say the app name, or type it in with either a blue-tooth keyboard or your remote control.

2. Once you see the MyMusicCloud TV app, click it. You’ll see a TV activation URL (format: www.mymusiccloud.com/XXXXX). The activation code is embedded in the URL; it’s the letters and digits after the ” / ” in the URL.

3. Type this URL into a browser on your computer, cellphone or tablet. If you choose a mobile phone, it sends you to the App Store or Google Play to download the MyMusicCloud app. Download it. (Note that this URL is only valid for 1 hour, so if you get up to make snacks, text or answer a phone call and an hour passes, you’ll need to close the app on your TV and reopen it to get a new URL.)

4. Sign in to your existing MyMusicCloud account with your usual login and password, or create a new account by clicking “Sign In” on that same screen where you entered the URL. (For first-timers, learn how to import your music by reading this step-by-step post.)

5. Check out your TV screen: It should now show that your account’s active and your music will be right there, ready to browse and play. (If it doesn’t work, post a message in our comment section and we’ll try to help.)

Not sure what a Smart TV is exactly? It’s really any TV that has internet access built in so you can watch video on demand, use social networks and search the web. But only those branded “Smart TVs” have dashboards that can download apps from stores like Google Play (otherwise you’ll need a second device like Chromecast or a gaming console to reach your favorite apps). Check your TV manual for more details.

For Samsung Smart TV owners, here’s a quick video on how to use your Samsung Smart Hub …

In addition, all of our MyMusicCloud apps are being updated, including those for Apple iTunes, Android via Google Play, Nokia, Windows phone, Blackberry, and smart TVs by Samsung and Toshiba. New iOS and Google Play apps are available today.

We love our loyal subscribers around the globe (we’re fluent in 22 languages, baby!).  So as a thank you to the 250,000 of you who already “Like” and pay for our service, all existing MyMusicCloud paying users have been automatically upgraded to MyMusicCloud’s new Unlimited Plan — at no additional cost — for one year.

At MyMusicCloud, our core philosophy has always been that music should be share-able. Whether you listen on a PC, iPad, Android phone or smart TV, we don’t think you should be handcuffed to one brand of player or device.

To see all the different ways you can enjoy your music with MyMusicCloud, check out the video below. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we enter this exciting new phase.
