Play List for MP3s and WAV files on mobile app/website

Play List for MP3s and WAV files on mobile app/website

Many musicians use Dropbox to store and share our recordings. As the leader of my band, I want my musicians to use my Dropbox account to prepare for rehearsals and listen to our recordings of past rehearsals. But several of them refuse to do so because they prepare for rehearsals while driving in their cars - and they all have the same complaint with Dropbox. There is no way to select multiple recordings (MP3s and WAV files) in my folders and simply listen to all of them in sequence. They have to launch each and every MP3/WAV individually - one at a time. And when one recording ends, you have to close that recording and return to the folder to launch the next recording, which is not safe while driving a car.
In essence, what I am requesting is that you add a feature that is equivalent of a play list, so they can select all of the MP3s/WAVs in a folder and start playing all of them without having to launch each recording individually.
In this day and age of play lists, YouTube, Spotify, etc., this seems to be an obvious feature for you include. But honestly, it seems that Dropbox is tunnel-visioned into thinking that the only users of your website & mobile app are companies and individuals sharing Word, Excel, PowerPoint files and photos. I assure you, that is not the case.
Please add this feature. I love using Dropbox but due to this obstacle for my band members when it is time to renew my membership in August I will have to find another product to better serve our needs, which I would rather not do.
Thank you.

Hey @MichaelMusician - thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on this with us.

 

Just to make sure we're on the same page, could you confirm that you're talking about the Dropbox mobile app and your device's OS too?

 

Thanks so much!

Hey @MichaelMusician - did you get the chance to see my previous response?

Hi Walter!

 

Thank you for your follow-up because I had not noticed your first response.

 


Ideally, my suggestion for a “playlist” feature applies to both; the mobile app and the Windows desktop website. But with that said, the situation that prompted my request stems from my band members that wanting to listen to our recordings while driving in their car. So that would the priority environment.

 

Thanks again!
