- Please recommend me a cloud type app/service for music (quite specific!)
get a Synology box? Although this definitely violates point 6.Posted 3 years ago
What’s the core problem you’re trying to solve here? The reason I ask is that everything you’ve described has been possible for years using stuff like iTunes and Windows Media Player i.e. you have a load of music and playlists on your PC and want to make (some of) it available to a mobile device. I am making a huge assumption iTune and the like will work with an Android phone.
If “the cloud” part of it is the crux, why?Posted 3 years ago
1. Upload music files from my PC (as a playlist)
2. Play (stream) the playlist on a Android phone
3. Download as a playlist onto my android phone (eg. to play in the car)
4. Download individual files onto my android phone
5. Simple (for someone else, I’m actually quite clever, me)
6. (For free)
Such a thing? Google drive almost does it, but doesn’t seem to have a playlist option, unless I’m missing it.Posted 3 years agohypnotoadMember
Even if you’re using a single google account on 2 devices, it only allows you to play music on 1 device at once, it’s pretty locked down. Shame really as a multiple speaker setup would be quite a nice feature.
Doesn’t Android allow you to use more than a single account or some sort of quick account switching?
How many songs do you need to share?
I think a Mega account allows something like 50gb, but I haven’t tried streaming from it, I usually use Mega for archiving video footage; however even if you can stream straight from it, I doubt it supports playlists.Posted 3 years ago
Pooh, Google Music doesn’t work for my grand plan as we both already are signed into our phones with Google accounts, so can’t share an account.
Doubt you can share songs with someone else can you?
With Play music you can upload the files onto your account and then upload them onto another’s account. That way you wouldn’t need to share an account. I set mine and Mrs muggo’s play music account (seperate accounts) to auto upload any music that I add to iTunes, it will also upload any playlists that you create in iTunes too.

I recently created a separate folder for Mrs Muggo’s music as she has particularly bad taste in music and I didn’t want her rubbish appearing on my account. So anything of mine she does like I just copy and paste to the “add to play” folder (set as the auto upload folder) and then google play music uploads it straight to her account.Posted 3 years ago
She would need to add that folder to her play account auto upload folder, but other than that it wouldn’t be a problem.Posted 3 years ago
I should say that we both use the same laptop with separate log ins, so it’s easy for me to just copy and paste the files into the folder which is under her log in.
The actual purpose is to share files with someone else simply.. By us both using the same account
😆 😳 still don’t follow. You can sync music/playlists/photos/movies etc from your computer to any number of devices. This is how stuff like iTunes has worked for years. You don’t need a Cloud service to do this. What am I missing? Does Android not do this or something?Posted 3 years ago
You can sync music/playlists/photos/movies etc from your computer to any number of devices.
iTunes – I’ve got a iTunes library and iPod/iPhone/iPad that sync to it. Her device isn’t in my house, so would need the internet (or cloud) for her to access the music and listen on her Android phone. Wouldn’t want her to have to rely on iTunes. (She hasn’t got a computer). (As an aside – iTunes wouldn’t load on my PC last time I tried – nightmare for me!!)Posted 3 years ago
Was really hoping for something different to what we’ve already got.. This may not be needed though!
