5 years on ....

I was at least hoping for a very very basic playlist feature by now to be honest. 

Another reason for doing this is customers who deal with audio for a living can then use Dropbox for work. I've just come from a community discussion with Sync artists, many of whom want to use Dropbox, but have to turn to other services because of a lack of a basic playlist feature.

Hi people; thank you all for sharing your thoughts on this. 

I know this is not much, but I found some related ideas you might find interesting. 

In that case, you could all up-vote the ones you like and would like to see implemented or integrated with our services:

 

See you around the Community and thanks for the feedback!

These ideas are not related and are not interesting. Just let us access the shared folder from other apps of our choosing. That's it. No need for streaming, or implementing playback, or integration with some other services.

 

You know what I do right now? I connect my phone via USB cable to my PC, manually copy the musing files I want, then play them using the app of my choice. Why can't I do exact same thing by making a folder available offline in Dropbox? That's really all I want, super simple.

For desktop try https://www.expandrive.com/desktop/ to turn any cloud directory into a network drive aim any media player at the new drive letter.

For phone, cloudbeats stream from dropbox onto your phone tablet Android and IOS.

Actually, you can listen the music from Dropbox now with this Alexa skill:

You can create multiple playlists and share them across all your Echo devices.

The workaround I found is to load your music library to Amazon Music.  Then Alexia will play on your devices like your car or phone.

Also pCloud (Music Player) plays HiRes music files without first having to ‘make available offline!’ If Dropbox could introduce something similar (a music player), WOW that would be supreme!

There's just no good options for making a mix for someone these days.  Dropbox clearly has some advanced player technology built in, like the gallery and video player are both amazing. 

 

The "Solution" for this doesn't work. There's no music integrated service that makes it easy to make a mix and share it with someone without that person also going through a complicated install process.
