    Should background syncing of music work, or if it doesn't does anyone know if there are future plans for it

    I create a playlist, for example called Offline Phone, and add music to it
    I set this playlist to be available offline and all the songs download to my phone, so far so good

    If I add songs to this playlist from my PC, the songs only download when I next open Music on my phone

    Is there anyway for the music app to download these songs in the background without me having to open the music app first?

    They mentioned in a changelog, that the app syncs your collection in the background when it is being charged.

    Music on Windows Phone 8.1 Update Now Available | 7/18/14 – Xbox Music Suggestion Box

    Althought I don't know if that will also download the files automatically.

    Thanks, will test adding something later today just before I put it on charge

    Been a few weeks since I tried this and then it only downloaded after I opened the app
