music app lyrics finder

If you’ve just downloaded MyMusicCloud, you may not have discovered all the cool things our free music app can do. Our philosophy has always been that  you should be free to listen to your music on any device, regardless of iOs, Android or Windows operating system. But did you know you can also …

Get a Smart Playlist

Whenever you click on a song, album or artist, you can instantly receive a playlist of similar singers and songs from your collection by clicking the blue triangle and “Create Smart Playlist.” Don’t like some of the songs there? On your phone, simply swipe left on the title and it’s gone, baby, gone.

Listen without Wifi

When wifi fails, you can keep the party going by playing songs from your library. Just make sure they’re downloaded to your computer, smartphone, tablet or Samsung smart TV by finding and clicking the blue triangle. A blue arrow on our mobile app indicates the song has already been downloaded. (More here.)

Shuffle Your Songs

You can now shuffle all the songs in your listening “Q.” On the website dashboard, click the Q on the lower-right corner of your screen and select “Shuffle” at the top of the song list. On the mobile app, go to the Q then tap the shuffle icon on the lower-left corner of your mobile screen.

See Song Lyrics

Instantly see all the ridiculous things Redfoo and Rihanna are singing with our Lyrics feature (photo above). The Lyrics button is located at the top of the screen for the song you’re listening to.

Use Keyboard Shortcuts

If you love hitting “Control + any key” on your keyboard to get things done, you’ll dig our keyboard shortcuts. Go to the MyMusicCloud website and hit “Shift + ?” to see a full list of time-saving keys. For future reference, they are: Spacebar = Play / Pause, Arrow Up = Volume Up, Arrow Down = Volume Down, Arrow Left = Previous Song, Arrow Right = Next Song, q = Open / Close “Q”, s = Shuffle, p = New Playlist. (Sorry, not available on smartphones.)

You can also import your music from Dropbox and Google, and play your collection on most Samsung smart TVs and Samsung Neo & Gear smart watches. For more tips and step-by-step instructions, visit our Help & How-To section at the right.

This Music App Streams Songs from Dropbox, Google, iTunes and More

Isn’t it crazy how many music storage apps there are? Dropbox, iTunes, Google Drive.  Not to mention all those here-today-gone-tomorrow startup apps in Google Play. If you’ve been collecting music over the years like we have, you’ve probably saved songs in nearly every one of these.

Before you know it, you’ve forgotten which albums and mixes are where: Is Jay-Z in my  iTunes or Google account? What happened to my 2012 football tailgate mix? Where did my live Muse import go?

All those storage accounts require a lot of passwords, and hog precious room on your cellphone, tablet, and computer. Why not give your devices (and yourself) a break, and unite all your albums in 1 universal music app?

Listen to all your music from Dropbox, Google Drive, iTunes, Windows Media Player and more with the free MyMusicCloud app. Using iTunes? Simply create a MyMusicCloud account and our desktop Sync Agent imports your songs automatically.

Storing Music on Dropbox or Google Drive? Once you sign up, click the ACCOUNT > SETTINGS > IMPORT SETTINGS tabs and select “Connect Google Drive or Dropbox.” Enter your log-in credentials once and our automatic Sync Agent does the rest.

Now, you’re really free from storage tyranny. You can:

  • Take your music with you wherever you go on any cellphone, tablet, laptop or Samsung smartwatch.
  • Listen to music offline. No Wifi needed.
  • Create new playlists, or let our Smart Playlist feature make one for you.
  • Buy new songs from our music store for as little as 99 cents. Move them to another app if you want.
  • Store all your music for free. Also, listen to 250 songs free or pay $39.99 / year to listen to any song anytime.
  • More importantly, save storage space with just 1 app instead of many.
