How do I use the Samsung Music app?
Your Galaxy device is great for so many things; watching videos, playing games, and listening to all of your favourite tracks. If you never leave home without your headphones then the Samsung music app is the perfect place to store and organise your music, with support for various sound formats including MP3, WMA, AAC and FLAC. Samsung Music has also partnered with Spotify to show you the most popular tracks and playlists in your area, helping you find your new jam.
The app is compatible with Samsung mobile devices that are running Android 5.0 and above. Find out what version of Android your device is running.
When you launch the app for the first time you will be asked to give the app permission to access your storage. If you don't allow permission, you will be unable to use this app.
On Galaxy S4, Note3 and Note4 devices you can optionally give the app permission to access your microphone. This allows you to control the music player using voice commands.
Adding music to the Samsung music app couldn't be easier. Every time that you open the app it will search through the files saved to your device and will automatically add any music that it finds. All you have to do is download or add some music to your device to get started.
If some music has been added that you don't want in your music library, you can remove it.
You can continue listening to music playing through the Samsung Music app while looking at other apps or with the screen locked. You can even control the music you are listening to without returning to the Samsung Music app.
You can also add a track to a playlist while you are listening to it.
Any music that you favourite will be added to the Favourites section of the Samsung Music app. This makes it really easy to quickly find all of the tracks that you love. You can add albums as well as individual tracks to your favourites.
