I've a Samsung Galaxy A8 phone (android 8.0.0) and it's connected to my OneDrive accounts (both personal and business) where I store music.

I've tried downloading music to my phone, but I could only make the files available off-line, no proper download.

I've Google Play Music and Samsung Music installed, neither can browse OneDrive off-line files. I can play them with a very basic player (probably skin of one of before mentioned players?), but that's not a solution for me.

How can I listen to music from OneDrive?

  3. You will be taken to the folder where the file will be downloaded. As seen on the picture below, the default folder is Download. You can select another folder by clicking the arrow on the left. Click Save on the top right to start the download.

  • Thanks for the answer! It works for small number of files as I've "save" option for files only, but not for folders. Is there a way to save folders too? – Máté Juhász Dec 25 '18 at 5:53
  • Only "Keep offline" is available for Folders as far as I know, and you must have the "Premium" license(?) to use the option. – Reddy Lutonadio Dec 25 '18 at 7:36

    @MátéJuhász Use FolderSync to sync or download the folder.. – Android Quesito Dec 25 '18 at 9:19
  • @AndroidQuesito thanks for the tip! I wouldn't think I need another app for that... You might add it as an answer as it solved my problem. – Máté Juhász Dec 25 '18 at 18:00
