    I was testing the Xbox Music Pass lately, on my Desktop PC (Win 7 Pro) as well as on my mobile phones (Lumia 820, Nexus 4).

    While playlists created in the Xbox Music App on Android are synced to the in-browser version of Xbox Music on my PC and vice versa, the Xbox Music App on the Lumia (not the Music + Videos App) does not react at all. Neither are playlists created on the Lumia synced to the other devices nor can I see playlists created on PC/Android.
    To be accurate, it worked once, when I did not have my SD-Card with ~30 GBs of Music on it installed. When the SD-Card is installed the Xbox Music App syncs all my local music (although it's horribly slow in navigating through it) but does not react to cloud changes.

    Has anyone faced a similar problem and maybe even knows a solution?
    Without playlist/music collection sync the Xbox Music App and of course the Music Pass itself is rather useless for me.

    It syncs perfectly for me across my Lumia 521, PC, and Xbox One. I know that doesn't help you out any.

    What's your PC's OS? Win8 together with the Xbox Music Metro App?

    Moreover, do you have a lot of not-Xbox-Music related mp3s on your 521 (SD-Card or Phone memory)?

    Same thing happened to me when adding songs to a playlist... strange trick: Use the Add to Collection and it will then start to sync across devices (WP8, Win8.1, web version and xbox360).

    So on your phone you just add something from Xbox Music to your collection and it starts syncing everything (including playlists)?

    I usually do it from music.xbox.com

    I add music to say my Winter Playlist (new songs) and then open the playlist and click the + icon and choose add to collection. Because even if you technically added the song to your collection when you added it to the playlist ... xbox music does not see it that way and it wont sync it to your phone or other devices. This will also take a few hours too for it to start to show up.. sometimes it's quick other times hours and hours.

    I don't understand why it is that way and I feel like it's a bug.

    Ok, i now did the same...although I doubt it'll do anything.

    I think it's related to the amount of music that's on my SD card. There is roughly 25 GB of music on that card und the Xbox Music App really struggles coping with this amount of songs and maybe for some unknown reason it then "forget's" the actual sync.

    I recognised something strange...the only thing that gets synchronized correctly are the Radio entries, god knows why...
