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?

To download music from Onedrive follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the 3-dots next to the music file.

  2. A menu with options appears. Select Save.

  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? Dec 25, 2018 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. Dec 25, 2018 at 7:36

  • @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. Dec 25, 2018 at 18:00
  • This does not work on Microsoft Android Surface Duo. One drive advertising for Premium blocks Save feature. May 8, 2021 at 13:14

Try out the OneSync app from the google store. It allows you to create a sync for your local (phone) folder with the onedrive's cloud location and keep the files locally in sync.

There are a bunch of apps available for this, I wrote up a few here: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2021/02/10/comparison-best-cloud-music-players/

Disclaimer alert: I can comment on Astiga as I operate that service. We made available a free, no-install OneDrive music player: https://asti.ga/onedrive-music-player .

  1. Go to the page and Connect to OneDrive:

  1. Sign in on Microsoft's site:

  1. Once you've signed in, the music player's page will reload and show your folders:

  1. Find your music and play!

It only allows browsing of your folders, playback of files, shuffling, repeats etc. To get the full "music library" experience you need to sign up. Let me know if you have any questions!
