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.

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).

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.)

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.
