I have a Nexus 5 and I'm trying to find out if it is possible to play only certain sections of music files instead of the whole track.

For example, if I want to skip the first 30 seconds, is there any setting I can change for the file or in the music player so that whenever I play that track, it automatically skips the first 30 seconds? Or if I want to play only the segment from 30s to 1:30s for that track, I can specify this is the settings for that track somehow?

I'm currently using the default music player on my phone, but if this is only possible with an app from the Play store, that would be fine with me as well. I browsed through some of the popular apps but they don't make it clear whether or not this feature is present.

This isn't gonna be a the best answer but just Google MP3 cutter. I used one of the apps and they do a good job EDIT: Just select your points and hit 'Start Cut' https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.beka.tools.mp3cutter
