Guide: Music Library
Music library is main app section where you can manage all your tracks.
There are two options available for building your library: manual and automatic sync.
To add tracks manually tap on the plus button and select folders/files from the connected network account. Selected tracks will appear in your library. When you add tracks to the library only links will be created. This was made to save disk space on your device. If you want to make tracks available offline use download action from the options menu.
Automatic sync allows you to add tracks to the library automatically. You need to activate automatic sync in app settings and select sync folders. In this case application will scan all selected folders to find supported audio files and add them to the library. You can start/stop synchronization by tapping on the corresponding menu action.
When you add tracks to the library metadata reader activates. This background process reads all tracks metadata and group them by Artist, Album, Genre. You can change speed of metadata reading in app settings. You can also disable metadata reader and show file names instead of tags information. Metadata reader only updates metadata in your music library and does not change files stored in your cloud account. If you want to edit metadata for audio files use the corresponding action from the options menu.
