How-to: search your library, shuffle your mini player

Excellent news for all you music collectors. We just rolled out two new features that add more functionality to your music library and mini player on Murfie.

The first, a search box in your music library. This one’s a long time coming, and we’re so very happy to introduce it to your disc-collection view on Murfie. To give it a try, just head on over to the “My Library” tab in your Murfie account, and use the search box to locate any disc in your collection, by artist or album name.

The second, a shuffle button in your music streaming “mini player”—you’ll have this if you’ve gone Murfie Gold. Just open up the “My Music” tab to view, filter, listen to and now shuffle all the discs in your library. Hit the shuffle button to keep things fresh and you on your toes, and make sure to check out our marketplace to add some fresh music to your library. (Side note: we now have 203,209 discs up for sale/trade!)

As always, don’t hesitate to give us a holler at info@murfie.com or @murfiemusic if there are any other features in particular you’re just dying to have. We really do strive to keep bringin’ more and more functionality to your library, making it the one and only place you need to manage all of your music.

How-to: filter your mini player

We’re pretty darn excited to announce that, today, we just rolled out another brand new feature. This one goes out to all the fine folks who’ve upgraded to music streaming on Murfie—you can now filter your mini player, by artist or album title, in real time!

We think that’s pretty great (do you?)…because having a filter function makes it a heck of a lot easier, and faster, to find the album you want to listen to. That’s just our opinion, though. Let us know what you think on facebook and twitter—we sincerely lurve hearing your fresh and honest feedback.

Now, let’s get down to some brass tacks. Here’s a few tips on how to use our music streaming “mini player”:

  • You can stream any album in your Murfie music library, from any web browser.
  • When signed into your Mufie account, you should see a “My Music” tab at the bottom of your browser—just open this “mini player” to view, filter and listen to all the discs in your library.
  • Some of your discs may not yet be ready for streaming; instead they’re processing. As soon as the “Processing” label disappears, the disc is ready for streaming!

Giving is Living! – NEW Gifting Feature

Giving is better than receiving. If you agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment, you’re in luck—because we just launched a brand spanking new “gifting” feature. Gift any album in your Murfie music library to one of your friends! Pretty nice, huh?

How it works. Just navigate to your “My Library” page in your Murfie account, and find the album you want to give away. Click the “Give this album to a friend!” link and you’ll then be prompted to enter your friend’s email address. Nicest part—you’ll even have the opportunity to send your friend a personal message!

If your friend accepts your “gift” within 3 days, we’ll move the disc out of your library and into your friend’s. Mission Gift-Giving complete!

If your friend is slow on the trigger, or just decides to reject your gift [sad face], the album will remain in your library.

As with all new features, hit me up if you have any questions or want more info. Happy to help! #happyhelper
