How to access your music library from anywhere

In 2022, technology has changed the way we live. Tasks that were once long and arduous to achieve can now be completed with the click of a button. Convenience is the name of the game, and we’re used to having everything we need at the tips of our fingers.

Music is no exception. It’s become portable and instantly accessible, no matter where we are or what we’re doing – in most scenarios, at any rate. Of course, there are the rare occasions where we’re cut off and plunged into unwelcome silence.

So, how can you avoid them and ensure you can truly access your library from anywhere?

Invest in a portable Wi-Fi hotspot

Are you someone who forever has Spotify playing like a backing track to your life? If the answer is “yes,” it can be hard being cut off from the source. While you can download your favorite songs and playlists, you can’t guarantee you’ll have the perfect track for any occasion.

Unless, that is, you ensure internet access wherever you go. If you’re heading off on a camping trip, for example, and know you’re going to have limited data and no access to a Wi-Fi network, try taking a reliable connection along with you. A portable Wi-Fi hotspot fits the bill. Listed as an essential component in any tech survival kit, alongside flash drives, batteries, and power banks, it’s an internet router that you can take anywhere. Working off 4G and 5G signals, it allows you to easily connect to YouTube or Spotify, no matter where in the world you are.

Use the same Apple ID on all your devices

This solution won’t be of much use if you have an Android phone, but if you’re one of the millions who prefer Apple, we have an easy way to access your library from any device: log in using your Apple ID.

Assuming you subscribe to Apple Music, you can access your library any time you’re connected to the internet and from anywhere if you’ve downloaded your favorite tracks. This means you might have access to up to 100,000 songs and playlists, no matter where you are.

Plus, if you run out of battery on one device, you can just switch to another. This is great in situations where charging points aren’t easily available.

Store it online

Spotify and YouTube are great options for listening to music online – but if you already have a prized music collection kept in the cloud or on a hard drive, the effort of re-downloading it to these platforms can seem unappealing.

Luckily, there are other ways you can enjoy it remotely. For tunes saved in the cloud, you might want to consider Cloudbeats as an option. It works with both Android and iOS and allows you to listen to your music library from anywhere.

Alternatively, for songs stored on your hard drive, look at Apple Music, Deezer, or Google Play Music. Isn’t it time you explored your options?
