Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my music from the cloud on my phone?

If you have your music stored in cloud storage such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox or similar, you can connect a cloud music player such as Astiga to the storage. Such services typically have apps you can install on your phone; these also provide for offline access should you be in a place with limited phone coverage.

Will deleting the music app delete my music?

This depends on the app and the service. For streaming services to which you’ve uploaded music additional to their library: deleting the app for the service will mean you can no longer play your uploaded music, but the music itself may remain on your phone or within your library on your computer. In addition, if you haven’t cancelled your account, other devices which still connect to the account may still have access to the music if it was uploaded.

What are the limits of cloud music libraries?

Different services impose different limits. Generally, the streaming services mandate more restrictive limits in terms of the amount of music you can upload and its diversity (for example, only certain file formats are permitted). You typically don’t have the same limitations if using a cloud storage service, beyond those defined by the pricing tier you are using. Most cloud storage services provide enough capacity for an average sized music library and can be increased in size, although this can get expensive because such price tiers are typically reserved for businesses.

Can you listen to cloud music offline?

Most cloud music providers provide a way of downloading from the cloud and listening to music offline. This can be done either via the cloud music software, for example selecting specific tracks, albums or artists to download, or by synchronising music files between a cloud storage service and your device.

How do I retrieve music from the cloud?

All generic cloud storage services provide a way of downloading the entirety of data from the service. For music lockers or streaming services to which you’ve uploaded additional tracks then some form of export is normally permitted.
