Music

The Music app plays music files. Use Music to browse your music library, play songs, and create playlists. You can also set songs as ringtones for incoming calls, or as alarm tones.

Note: For information about loading music onto your phone, see Transfer Files Between Your Phone and a Computer.

When you close the Music screen, playback will continue in the background, so you can listen to music while you use other features of your phone. When music is playing in the background, you can access playback controls from the notification panel.
