    Music Player
    is a scripting plugin for Unity that allows for easy playing of music in your projects.

    It lets you configure playlists, for example for different parts of your game or different levels, and easily change between these at appropriate times. For example by having one playlist for the main menu, and a different one in game.

    It is also possible to create playlists at runtime, if your audio clips are not available when you are editing or you are downloading the music at runtime.

    Playlists can be played in order or shuffled, and tracks can be disabled. This can let users choose which tracks they want to hear.

    It supports any audio format that Unity supports, it's meant for creating and managing playlists inside your unity projects and not as a standalone music player for arbitrary files.

    Yes it supports Android as well as any other platform that Unity supports.

    The asset makes it easy to create and play playlists, but these must be created in the Unity editor, it does not play music from the users device.

    It has the same CPU usage as playing an audio clip in Unity, normally very little CPU is needed.

    Yes, just set it to play on scene load in the inspector or through script, and it will happily play in the background.

    Hi Steego, does the player continue to play music even after the phone is locked?
