Q: How can I shuffle all songs:

-> In the left navigation drawer, change to all songs, start one (this always queues all songs, which are displayed). Swipe up the panel from the bottom. The shuffle-button is on the bottom right.

Q: I cannot find my music, where is it ?

-> If you change to the ‘add root path’ modus, you will first be on the storage, your device’s manufacturer chose to be the ‘primary storage’. If your device has another storage (e.g. sdcard/internal), hit up until you can navigate to it

Q: Is WMA supported ?

-> Yes it is, but it is currently an experimental feature, which has to be switched on. The song start for WMA files, is a bit slow.

Q: My external equalizer doesn’t work (e.g. Viper4Android), why ?


1. turn off the equalizer in beat
2. force close beat -> e.g. long touch the beat notification -> app info …
3. restart beat and don’t turn the equalizer on
(This is just a workaround, I’ll add a solution in the app, soon)
