Updated: How to Listen to MyMusicCloud Songs Without WiFi

Album view

We’re making it easier and more intuitive to use the MyMusicCloud store-and-play service all the time, and we’ve upgraded it again. You already know our app makes your music library available on every device you use – PC, laptop, tablet, phone and even smart watches and smart TVs.  But another cool thing about our cloud-based music delivery service is that, with a few simple swipes, you can listen to your songs while offline — on a plane, subway train or even rappelling down a Tasmanian rock-face.

So how do you access your music when you’re offline? Here’s a quick user tip from our tech squad.

Songs you want to hear without wifi first need to be “downloaded” to your phone or tablet. There are a couple easy ways to accomplish this …

1. On our mobile app, press and hold any track, album or artist. A menu pops up with the option to “Download to Device.” Select it to make that track/album/artist available for offline listening.

2. Separately, there is also an option to download all content you add to your “Q” automatically. You can turn this option ON or OFF in the ACCOUNT section of the app. When this function is ON, any music you add to your Q to listen to is downloaded to your device automatically.

Music that has been successfully downloaded will display a small blue arrow icon. The arrow means that music is ready for offline rocking.

We hope this user tip helps you use our MyMusicCloud app and enjoy your music anywhere. For more tips, visit our Help & How To section here on the blog or click over to our new Support Center. In the Support Center, you’ll find answers to other people’s FAQs, and you can post questions of your own for our tech team to answer.

How to Use the MyMusicCloud App on Your SmartWatch

MMC_GEAR2_Player_V02

Did you know you can listen to your digital music collection right from your smartwatch? Besides being able to place calls and dictate texts, you can rock out to your  favorite songs and playlists with the MyMusicCloud app on Samsung’s new Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear S smartwatches.

So how does it work? If you’re a MyMusicCloud user, you already know you can store all your music for free in our cloud and play up to 250 songs on any laptop or desktop, tablet, and smartphone, regardless of brand. Now, it’s easy to sync our music app to your smartwatch too.

STEP 1. Make sure you’ve downloaded the Samsung Gear Manager app onto your smartphone and that it’s synced to your smartwatch. The Gear Manager controls how your watch looks, and which apps you can download to it.

STEP 2. Turn on your Bluetooth and open Gear Manager on your phone. Select Samsung Gear Apps and click on the Category tab. Tap “Entertainment.” The MyMusicCloud app is available for free here in Samsung’s Apps store.

STEP 3. Download the app, and make sure it appears in your My Apps window by tapping “View App in Gear Manager.”

STEP 4. Open the MyMusicCloud app on your Samsung phone, and just go to “My Apps” on your smartwatch to launch our music app. Now you can choose songs or playlists from your collection to play, rewind, or pause by touching the watch face. (As always, you’ll need to have uploaded your music to our cloud beforehand using a desktop, laptop, or tablet.) You’ll also need a Bluetooth headset to enjoy your jams.

Available in a variety of colors, the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear S smartwatches cost $299 with most U.S. carriers, such as AT&T.  Although they use the Tizen operating system and not Android, our MyMusicCloud app is also available for Android devices in the Google Play store.

Confused or got a Samsung Gear smartwatch question? For the quickest answers, watch the How To videos on here on Samsung’s Support Page. Or, email us at support@mymusiccloud.com, and we’ll do our best to answer it.

Help: How MyMusicCloud Works and FAQs

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).

mymusiccloud dashboard

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.

MMC Cloud Storage Icon

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.)

We hope this how-to guide makes it simpler for you to navigate our cloud-based music delivery service and free music apps.

If you just bought a Smart TV, congratulations! With a few simple steps, our MyMusicCloud app makes it easy for you to fill your home with all your music right from your Smart TV.

We’ve partnered with Samsung Smart TVs (the most popular brand), so you can play your favorite songs, make party playlists, and check out the latest releases from your favorite singers using your TV remote.

Once you have a free MyMusicCloud account, it’s simple to get started. Here’s how in 5 steps.

STEP 1: Click the Smart Hub button on your TV’s 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.

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

STEP 3. Type this URL into a browser on your computer, cellphone or tablet. If you choose a cellphone, 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.)

STEP 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. It’s free to upload and store all your music, plus listen to 250 songs anytime you want. (For first-timers, learn how to import your music by reading this step-by-step post.)

STEP 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.

25 Pump-Up, Tailgate Songs to Make Your Own 2014 Football Playlist

Hey Jack, it’s a fact, the show’s back in town. And, by show, we mean America’s favorite pro sport, football! So break out your favorite jerseys and beer koozies, and get ready to drop that bass, because we’re going to help you make a killer football song playlist.

But first, it helps to know what the real grid-iron gangstas are listening to. Billboard.com recently polled several pro-football players about which songs made their pre-game football playlists, and the answers are pretty surprising.

Sure, there was a lot of T.I., Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and Young Jeezy, but there was also Sum 41, Smash Mouth, and Everclear (from Minnesota Viking linebacker Audie Cole); some Whitney Houston and Sade (Really, Dallas Cowboy Justin Durant?); and a little Kaskade and Tiesto (Geoff Schwartz of The New York Giants).

But, seriously, football fans, even though hip-hop has been quickly eclipsing rock at many parking lot parties, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC and Florida Georgia Line are still holding their own. And some of the hottest rappers, like Eminem, are combining the two for even more basspower.

So, here are some of the best, classic, tailgate-crashing, stadium-rocking, football pump-up songs we could find, along with some new jams and some feel-good country anthems for the Boys of Fall.

Got MyMusicCloud? By importing any of these into your music collection, or buying them from our Music Store (starting at 19 cents), you can flag these to a portable Football Playlist in no time.

First, log in to your account from a computer or tablet, select the PLAYLISTS tab at top, and click “Create New Playlist.” Once you name it, open any track and hit the blue triangle that appears at the bottom right. Select “Add to Playlist” and highlight the list you want. Just like that, you’ll have the honeys dancing in their seats at the pre-game party too.

  1. Juelz Santana – The Second Coming
  2. The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil
  3. Kongos – Come with Me Now
  4. Eminem – Berzerk
  5. Kanye West GOOD Music — To the World
  6. T.I. featuring Eminem – Touchdown
  7. Meek Mill featuring Rick Ross – I’m the Boss
  8. DMX – X Gon’ Give It to Ya
  9. The Heavy – How You Like Me Now (Original)
  10. David Guetta featuring Sia – Titanium
  11. Jay-Z Featuring Rihanna, Kanye West – Run This Town
  12. Daft Punk – Harder Better Faster Stronger
  13. Jay-Z – Public Service Announcement
  14. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Dubstep Remix) – Can’t Hold Us
  15. Coolio – Gangsta’s Paradise
  16. The Notorious B.I.G. — Hypnotize
  17. Kid Rock – All Summer Long
  18. Florida Georgia Line Featuring Luke Bryan – This Is How We Roll
  19. Avenged Sevenfold — Hail to the King
  20. AC/DC — Thunderstruck
  21. Ozzy Osbourne — Crazy Train
  22. Bon Jovi — This Is Our House
  23. U2 – Elevation
  24. Foo Fighters — My Hero
  25. Don’t Look Back – Boston

Help: How to Move Songs In and Out of MyMusicCloud

Odds are you have more than 250 songs in your music collection, but you still want them all at your fingertips, because you never know when a romantic moment or a boring subway outage or a spontaneous office dance party will occur.

We get this, which is why we give you the power to move 250 songs in and out of our cloud storage and into your listening queue whenever you like. It’s always completely free to store all your music at MyMusicCloud. You can take advantage of our service and enjoy access to 250 songs at a time, or upgrade to our Unlimited membership for just $40 / year (less than the cost of 1 latte a month).

Tired of Calvin Harris or Frank Ocean? When your 250 songs get stale, simply upload new ones, or download existing songs from the cloud. Here’s how:

First, import your music collection into MyMusicCloud with our automatic sync agent (See “How to Import Your Music“), so you can listen to them on any computer, tablet, Smart TV or mobile device, regardless of operating system, with our app.

After logging in via the web, you’ll see a tab labeled “CLOUD” in the top navigation bar to the right of “PLAYLISTS.” That’s where your stored tracks live until you call them down for action. (If you don’t see CLOUD, don’t panic. It just means you haven’t imported more than 250 songs.) To see them, click CLOUD. Several tabs appear in the far left-hand column, indicating the number that are “Playable” and those that are “Stored.”

If you already have 250 songs in rotation, you’ll need to free up space by clicking the Playable tab, hovering over any track and clicking the ” – ” icon to send it to the cloud. To make any cloud-based song playable, simply press Cloud, hover over a title and click the “+” icon to the right.

That’s all it takes to refresh your playlists. To see more “How to” posts like this one, simply type “Help” in the search field in the upper right corner of this blog. Happy listening.
