SYNC Media Metadata

SYNC uses the metadata of your music files to display information such as artist, track, album, and genre. Metadata is the information embedded in an audio file that is used to identify the content.  

SYNC uses metadata information to build speech commands that you can use to access your media, hands free via voice commands.

If you have songs that have invalid or missing metadata the songs might not be shown correctly in the music library when browsing it.

While SYNC does not have a specific amount of songs or Gigabytes that can be handled, organising and reducing redundancies in your media files metadata is imperative for the best media playback experience through SYNC.

The examples below show how having organised metadata can allow SYNC to more easily find your music.

The Beatles
Los Beatles
The Beetles

→ This all consumes voice memory, commonise all artist metadata to The Beatles to tidy-up the media library and allow finding specific media files more easily.

Rock Alternative
Classic Rock
Rock Americana
Rock and Roll

→ Again these all consume voice memory, commonise all genre metadata to Rockto tidy-up the media library and allow finding specific media files more easily.
