    For playing music files stored on the phone/sd card?

    Free/ad free if possible…….

    It’s for Mrs S’s Moto G, had no idea it came without one.

    Thanks in advance…..

    Does the Moto G not have Youtube Music installed? That will play device files.

    Poweramp is worth a look.
    I like it because it’s got a really good built in EQ.
    Download the free version to test it out, but if you like it the paid unlocked version is the full version. Think it was about £7 last time I checked… A long time ago.

    I use VLC. Plays pretty much everything and it’s good for playing from folders. It’s supposedly a video player but it plays audio just fine. Free and ad free

    However, having problems transferring the music files to the phone atm!

    God, I hate technology…..

    +1 for Poweramp. I liked it so much that I bought the app, in a really crap Victor Kiam sort of fashion.

    Connect phone to PC. Drag, drop.

    That’s what I’ve always done before, but the phone isn’t appearing on the Windows Media Player Sync window.

    Phone connected via cable and Bluetooth.

    It needs to be in usb transfer mode. Sometimes it defaults to something else like charging only. There should be an option in settings. The wife’s Moto is a bit flakey for this.

    full version of poweramp is actually only £4 at the moment.
    You have to download the free version, and then if you want, download and pay for the full version unlock.

    But then you’ve got it forever, as long as you have the same google account.

    +1 for poweramp. One of only 3 fully paid for apps on my phone. Had it for so long and so many phones now I can’t remember what it cost, but it wasn’t much. Only complaint is that the shuffle function is a bit meh and it doesn’t seem that random or deep, meaning it seems to work its way through about 5 folders at a time before moving on to another block of folders, Plus there are a whole lot of songs I know are on the phone that I don’t think it has ever played for me on random shuffle. Yet if I choose those songs manually it plays them fine.

    Is poweramp voice compatible with Android Auto? Still lamenting the loss of Google Play Music and using VLC player at the moment (which isn’t voice command compatible ).

    Another VLC user here- it’s free and is ad-free (important!) I have to put my moto into usb transfer mode each time I connect it to the computer too, it took me ages to work that one out (imagine a chimp working out how to use a rock as a tool…) 🤣

    You own the Poweramp Software and all its revenue? Are you married?
