    Instead of transferring music onto the phone I thought I would make use of the free 7gb we get with skydrive and just stream my music. Is this possible? Will it still play in the regular music player?

    I highly doubt Microsoft is going to allow that. That will eat up a bunch of bandwidth. Just buy your own domain and FTP.

    Or just use Google Music, there is an App in the marketplace for that -> CloudMuzik, that works quite well.
    But I am not sure if it works with your Lumia920, I had problems with it on my L920, but worked fine on my L800. Just try it out.

    Does CloudMuzik support downloading it to the phone? Or does SkyDrive support syncing? I have all of my music in iTunes and using the Google Music app, whatever I buy in iTunes gets automatically transferred to Google Music. Any such solution for Windows Phone on the Mac?

    There are two apps I can see, Skymusic and Sky Player. Do a search for SkyDrive and you should see them in the results.

    I believe you can already do this with Xbox Music and Cloud Sync and it doesn't use you SkyDrive Space.

    To my knowledge SkyMusic allows you to do it

    SkyMusic | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    You can stream from SkyDrive but it will only do one song at a time.

    I use skymusic to stream my 15+ GB of music, it's really good. You can also make playlist if I am not mistaken.

    SkyMusic +1. Looks and works just like the built-in music player. Been using it for months.
