Music Player

Last Updated: Jun 20, 2012 12:16PM PDT

We want to create the best music experience for you on MySpace. With millions of songs to choose from, create your playlists and navigate Myspace at the same time. Our new Music Player will allow you to:


  • Discover new music with improved search and similar song recommendations
  • Queue up the music player in a new window to run in the background to listen while browsing
  • Save a playlist to enjoy at a later time
  • Switch to Myspace Radio Mode
  • Share the music you play with your Facebook friends
  • Buy the songs playing on the player

If you run into any errors while using the Music Player, try refreshing your page or close it and reload it from scratch


Songs can be added to the Queue as you wish and can be done by following these steps:

  1. Hover over the play button on any song on www.myspace.com (or by selecting the Play button, it will automatically begin playing and appear in the queue)
  2. Select the option Add To Queue or Play Next to add the song into the Music Player queue
    • By selecting Add to Queue, the song will be added to the bottom of your queue
    • By selecting Play Next, the song will be added to the queue to play after the current song finishes (or second within your queue if you don't immediately have a song playing)
  3. In the Music Player window, select the song and press Play
    • Within the queue, you can drag and drop the songs to change their play order
    • You can also turn on Shuffle mode to randomize your song play order
    • To remove a song from your queue, simply hover over the song within the queue and select the X that appears to the right of the song
    • If you want to empty your queue, you can do so by selecting the Clear button and approve the confirmation prompt that appears

Radio Mode

We added the Radio Mode to the Myspace Music Player to make your music experience on Myspace even better. With millions of songs available, you can now just lean back and listen to music without having to keep adding additional songs to your playlist, if you don't choose to.

    To access Radio Mode:
  1. Open your music player and click on Switch to Radio
  2. You can easily switch back to your playlist by clicking on Exit Radio

Another great advantage this feature offers is after you have listened to your last song in your playlist, the music player switches automatically to Radio Mode. You can just keep listening to music. Right now the genre is populated based on the last song you played in your playlist. Myspace Radio allows you to easily discover new songs and bands you may love.

While listening to Myspace Radio you can:

  • Add the song that is playing to your playlist (click on the artist name and click on add)
  • Buy the song that is playing by clicking the buy button

  • Enjoy private browsing by turning off the Music option off in your Activity Stream settings

Notes & Tips
  • When you have Shuffle turned on, you won't enter Radio mode
  • There is no option to manually add or remove songs from Myspace Radio
  • If you have the player open wide enough and at least one song in your queue, the right rail will display up to 8 related artist stations in the Similar Music
  • To start Genre Radio, click on the Radio Stations button while in one of the other 2 radio modes to get a list of genre stations - Or, if you clear your queue, you will see a list of genre stations in place of an empty queue
