Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud-based service is a useful way to stream your music and videos to your iPhone, iPad, or Android tablet from your computer or laptop.
It lets you manage the music and movie collection and can even play them on the fly, just like iTunes.
It’s a little complicated to set up, though, so if you’re not used to the idea of playing your music from a computer, or if you’ve never used the app before, it may take a little time to get used to.
Here are the steps to get started.
The Office 365 app opens in a window on your desktop.
Click “Add” next to the file name in the drop-down menu.
Next to the name of the file, click “Add.”
Next to “Add File,” select “Music.”
If you don’t see the Music icon, click the “Play Now” button.
When the Music menu appears, click on the “Add Music” button in the top-right corner.
On the next screen, choose the file you want to stream.
If you want a larger file, scroll down and click on “Add Size.”
If it looks like this, click OK.
You’ll see a list of music files and choose the one you want.
If it doesn’t look like a file, just click on OK.
If your file is large, click next.
If the file doesn’t have any music in it, click yes.
Click on the next button to continue.
The app will tell you that the music in the file is available for streaming.
To begin streaming music and movies, click a song or video on the list, then choose a music file and select “Play.”
If a movie is selected, the screen will display the name and description of the movie.
Once you’ve finished watching the movie, you can play it on your computer, phone, or tablet by right-clicking on the movie and choosing “Play” from the menu.
This is a nice feature, especially if you want the movie to be played immediately when you open the app.
To stream your movies, open the Music app on your Mac, and then tap “Add Movie” in the upper-right.
In the top bar, click and drag the “File” button to the left of the title of the selected movie.
This will bring up the “Select Movie” screen, which will open the Movie Player app on the Mac.
In that app, you’ll find a movie preview section, and to the right of the preview section is a “Play List” button that lets you choose the movie you want in the first place.
In addition to the movie preview screen, the Movie List app also lets you control playback of your selected movie in various ways.
In fact, if you click on any of the tabs at the bottom of the screen, you may be able to choose to start playback on the device, pause, or resume playback on your device.
This isn’t the only way to control playback.
To start streaming your movie from your iPhone or iPad, just right-click on the screen and choose “Play From iPhone” or “Play from iPad.”
The Music app also offers other great features, including automatic album art updates.
When you start watching your movie, a new screen appears to display the current album art, which shows you which songs are currently playing.
The screen also lists the current movie’s genre, and the movie title.
In other words, if a movie starts with the word “drama” or some other word, then it’s a good thing to listen to it.
If a song starts with “rock,” “dance,” or “music,” then it may not be a good idea to listen at all.
Click the “play” button next to a song to begin the movie playback.
When playback is finished, you will see a new album art.
