    I currently cannot get my music from Dropbox to play on my phone. When I open my music apps, (play music or what I assume is a samsung app) they both read no songs exist. How can I get my music to play?

    I have not tried to play music from Dropbox but I think you need to copy the files down from Dropbox to the phone before you can play them.

    I use Google Music on my desktop to sync all my music (100GB+) to the cloud for free and play it on my phone using the Google Music app.

    Well that explains a lot, haha. I didn't realize it was just for storage. Thanks.

    I stream video from DropBox all the time, so it must be more about the music apps than a Drop Box limitation.

    Not much detail to offer. In the dropbox app if you click on a video file it plays it. There's about a 1 sec buffer (25 mbps connection)
