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.)

Traveling? 3 Tips to Enjoy Your Music on the Go

Flying, driving, or pedaling across the country this week? Whether you’re reuniting with family or fighting the airport crowds, you’ll want to have your favorite songs at your fingertips. With MyMusicCloud, you can upload and access your entire music collection wherever you are from nearly any device. Here are 3 tips to make listening on the go even easier:

1. Sync your devices.  Tablets, phones, laptops — Connect up to 10 devices to your MyMusicCloud account from Apple to Windows. Our service speaks every OS language. Just download the app, log in, and once you’ve imported it to one device, your music will be there waiting. You can even start a song on your phone, pause it, and resume playing on your tablet.

2. Choose your songs. Store as many songs as you like for free with our cloud-based music delivery service.  When you’re ready to listen, select from 250 playable songs. Want to swap one track for another? Just click the “TRACKS” tab and hover over the phone icon to the right of the song’s title to make it available on your mobile device.  Or listen to your entire library anytime through our unlimited plan (just $40 / year).

 3. Make a playlist. Hooked on the new Arcade Fire album? Or itching to hear anthems from your high school glory days? It’s easy to make a personal playlist. Select the “PLAYLISTS” tab, then click “Create New Playlist.” Once you’ve named it, hover over any song or album and click on the blue arrow.  Select “Add to Playlist” — to include the item you want. Feeling lazy? When you sign in, your home page will display a “Recommended Playlist” based on your recent listening habits. To change the recommendations, play songs like the ones you currently want to hear.
