MyMusicCloud User Tip: Accidentally Deleted Songs from Your Phone? How to Recover Them

Recently, we explained how easy it is to listen to your MyMusicCloud music library on your phone or mobile device when you’re riding the subway or stuck anywhere without wifi. That blog post is called: “User Tip: How to Listen to MyMusicCloud Songs Without Wifi.”

You might recall that in order to access songs while off the grid, you first need to “download” them to your mobile device. To do that, you simply select the right upperhand menu (3 horizontal bars) on your phone, and then click “Add/Remove” from the 4 choices that appear.  A “+ or –“ symbol will appear next to each song. Simply click the icon and the song is downloaded.

But this is key:  If you remove a song from your phone, it becomes inaccessible from your device. A pop-up message will ask you to confirm if that’s what you really want to do.

Because accidents happen, here’s another quick user tip from our tech squad.  Inadvertently deleted songs you actually wanted to keep during this process? Here’s how to restore titles that look grayed out and won’t play:

Next time you log in to your MyMusicCloud account on your computer or laptop, head to TRACKS. Find the songs you want to recover. Notice that the far right column is labeled “Sync” and includes a little icon of a phone for each song. If the song’s unavailable, it will look like a phone with a slash through it (the “Unsync” symbol).  Simply hover your cursor over the image and left click until it changes to a phone with a check mark.

Once again, the track will be available to enjoy on your phone or tablet. (You can also click it again to Unsync or remove it.)

 

Bonus tip: Songs played on any of your mobile devices from your MyMusicCloud library or added to your “Q” are automatically downloaded to your phone or tablet and available offline use later. So you don’t need to use the download process.

 

We hope this User Tip helps you use our MyMusicCloud app and enjoy your music anywhere on any device, computer, cell phone, tablet or smart TV, regardless of brand. We’ll be posting more User Tips soon, like “How to See Song Lyrics” and “How to Access Your Music on Your TV.” In the meantime, visit our FAQ or post a question in the comments section and we’ll be happy to answer it.

 

5 Cool Speakers, Headphones & More Music Gadgets from CES 2014

Rapper 50 Cent talked up his new line of Star Wars-themed SMS Audio headphones and Nick Cannon (“America’s Got Talent”) declared, “DJs are the new rock stars,” at this week’s packed Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Each January, celebrities and electronics company pitchmen fly to CES to give the press a peek at the newest TVs, sound systems and gadgets developed for the upcoming year. Below, we’ve rounded up 5 of the coolest new headphones, smart TV and music accessories coming out in 2014 …

Android TVs: Phillips is one of several brands, including Roku and HiSense (with its VIDAA series), to produce smart TVs running the Android OS. With Android, Philips hopes to bring many of the apps available on Google Play, like MyMusicCloud’s music delivery service, to its future Ambilight Smart TVs as early as spring 2014 in Europe. HiSense is aiming for March.

50 Cent Gives Props to Star Wars:  You may not have guessed it but “I’ve been a fan of Star Wars since I was a kid,” 50 Cent said. Partnering with Lucasfilms, he and his SMS Audio on-ear STREET by 50 headphones will soon bear Stormtrooper, Rebel Alliance, Boba Fett and Imperial limited edition logos, plus enhanced bass and custom 40 mm drivers  (about $199.95 each this Spring). He also showed off his brightly colored STREET by 50 Sports sets (waterproof, wired or wireless and sweat resistant, starting at $79.95).

Invisible Speakers:  Speaking of sci-fi, like something out of Star Trek, ClearView showed off its Clio “invisible” wireless speakers, which use a vibrating 1 millimeter-thin vertical sheet of acrylic glass to create sound so you can actually see through them.  All the electronics, a 2 inch woofer and stereo dipole speakers,  are in the base,

In-“fall”- ible Earbuds:  “Yurbuds” says its Inspire earbuds are “guaranteed” to stay in your ears, no matter what you’re doing. Sound too good to be true? Well, it credits its intuitive TwistLock system for this breakthrough, and the new wireless versions do look kind of like screws. These Bluetooth-enabled earbuds also promise six hours of battery life and are sweat-resistant.

Ultimate Fighting Headphones? Monster Shows Off UFC star Anthony Pettis & Nick Cannon: Monster introduced several new headphones including DNA Pro over-ear styles, $449.95 (about £274.18, AU$501.95), and Ultimate Fighting Championship-sponsored, over-ear cans called Octagon, which will run you about $280 (about £170.62, AU$312.36). Both are available later this year. Nick Cannon also DJed at Monster’s Ncredible party Tuesday night.
