Are you an Android user who wants to take the Music Unlimited playlists you’ve created with you, even when no mobile connection is available?

Then today’s your lucky day! We’ve added offline playback functionality to the Music Unlimited service’s Android app. Now you can download your Music Unlimited playlists and play the songs you’ve added to those playlists wherever you go, even places where you can’t get a mobile signal like airplanes or the back room of your relative’s house where you’re hiding because hey, you love them, but you just need a little peace and quiet before your aunt asks another question about how your dating life is going.

If you’re a subscriber to the Music Unlimited service and want to enable offline playback on your Android device here’s a simple how to:

  1. Go to My Library > Playlists
  2. Tap the Options button for the playlist you want to have available offline
  3. Select “Available Offline”

The playlist will begin downloading and the icon will change from spinning green arrows to a solid green image when all the songs in that playlist have been downloaded.

If you are offline just select “Switch to Offline Mode” in your Android hardware menu. You can now browse by album, artist, song or Playlist within Music Unlimited!

    I agree, but I bet it is an Apple restriction and not something that Sony isn’t trying to offer.

Offline mode needs to be on iOS and PSP as well. All features should be the same on all products.

Is this functionality ever coming to the IPhone. The service is good, but the inability to play music when driving through a dead or low signal area is frustrating.

Hey! Do you know when they make any plugins to aid with Search engine marketing? I am seeking to obtain my website to rank for a few focused key phrases but I’m not observing great gains. In case you know of any please share. Thanks!
