Somewhat buried on the tabs of Samsung Galaxy’s default music player app is a feature called Music Square. Music Square scans for the characteristics of the music files stored on your phone. The feature then automatically categorizes and groups each music file into four different “moods” based on a music’s tempo, beat, and other attributes. You can use Music Square as a fresh alternative for your mundane playlists.

How to Use Music Square on a Galaxy Device

For most Samsung Android phones running on Jellybean and later operating systems, Music Square is embedded into the Music app. To start using Music Square, follow these procedures:

1.From your phone’s Home screen, go to the application list by tapping on Apps.

2.From the list of applications on your phone, tap on Music. If you have some other application that is named “Music,” make sure that you open the native music application that comes pre-installed on your phone.

4.On Music Square, you will see a square divided into 25 smaller squares. On the sides of each square are the types of mood: Exciting, Joyful, Calm, Passionate. Each square has a different level of each of the four moods. The closer a square is to the mood title, the more qualities of that mood the square has.
