Help: How to Download and Play Songs Without Wifi via MyMusicCloud

import from mmc

We don’t think your music should be handcuffed to just one device or brand. That’s why our free MyMusicCloud app enables you to store all your songs and listen to them on any device, regardless of operating system, with or without wifi. So your only decisions are which songs to listen to  and how to play them. Those are MyMusicCloud user Chris Gill’s questions, too, and, today, we’re answering his email about how to download stored songs from the cloud and make them playable on your mobile device without wifi.

Chris’s Q: Am I right that the first time you play a track after moving it to playable from the cloud, it downloads the track?

Yes, when you play a song (or track) on a smartphone, tablet, or Samsung smartwatch, it’s automatically downloaded to that device as you listen. You can access any 250 songs at any time and store the rest in our cloud for free.

Q: Will I need to re-download this song if I try to play it on another of my devices?

Only if you want to listen to that song offline without wifi. If you have a signal, you can simply play the song and it will stream from the cloud.

Q: Will I need to re-download the track if I move it back to the cloud and some time later back to the playable list again?

Yes, when a track is moved back and forth from the storage cloud to the playable list, it will need to be downloaded again. 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. To skip this step and listen to your entire collection anytime, upgrade to our Unlimited plan for just 40 / year (about the same price as eating 4 medium pizzas all year). With the Unlimited plan, you can also get any album from our Music Store for FREE.

Q: Is there a way to bulk-move songs between the cloud and the playable section apart from just ticking the ‘-‘ symbol for each track?

Moving tracks in and out of storage can only be done through our website, MyMusicCloud.com. There is a multiple select option to do it by bulk. For more info, visit our post “How to Move Songs In and Out of MyMusicCloud.”

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.
