How do I get the workouts on my phone or tablet?

Downloading the vocal workouts to your device is a great way to take them on the go, even when you don’t have a data connection. Read on for tips on getting the workouts onto your various devices.

Using a desktop/laptop computer

The easiest way to get your audio files on your iOS device is via a desktop or laptop computer using iTunes.

  • Download the ZIP file to your computer (if clicking on it doesn’t automatically do so, right-click and “Save File As…” to a location on your computer).
  • Open the ZIP file and save those MP3 files to your hard drive.
  • Drag those MP3s into iTunes, or right-click and “Open with iTunes”.
  • If your device is synced with Apple iCloud Music Library, it will automatically notice the new warmup tracks (it can take 10 or 15 minutes sometimes for it to update itself).
  • If you don’t use iCloud Music Library, you can manually sync files to your device by plugging your phone in and syncing those new audio files.
  • If you need extra help syncing those files to your device, check out this helpful page from Apple. 

Using an iPhone or iPad

You can open a ZIP file directly on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 or newer.

  • Tap the download link and “Approve” the download permission prompt, and it will begin to download in Safari’s “Downloads” folder.
  • You can access the Downloads folder in the top right corner of your browser, next to the web address field.
  • Once it’s downloaded, you’ll be able to open it in the Files app and unpack all the MP3s right onto your device.
  • Please note, this method won’t “auto-play” the tracks one after the other like a playlist—to do that, use the iTunes method above, or keep reading. 

You can also use a third-party app to open and “unzip” (or unpack) the ZIP file and move those music files somewhere they can be played. There’s no way to put them directly into the Music app without iTunes, but many of our users recommend an app called Voice Recorder & Audio Editor.

  • Tap on the download link and choose “Open in Voice Recorder…” once downloaded
  • Say yes to “uncompress files” to save those MP3 files within your app’s storage
  • You’ll now see a folder containing the downloaded files, which you can manage, rearrange, and play directly from the app
  • Please note, we aren’t affiliated with this app or developer—use with your own discretion and responsibility.

Using a desktop/laptop computer

The easiest way to get audio files onto your device is to upload them to your Google Play Music library. Once available there, any device or computer of yours will be able to access them easily. You can transfer music from your computer to your Google Play Music library in the following ways:

  • Add music using Google Play Music for Chrome. For detailed instructions, visit this article.
  • Download and use Music Manager software on your computer. For futher instructions, click here.

If you can’t transfer your library online, you can load music files from your computer to your mobile device using a USB cable. View a set of instructions on how to do so here.

Using a phone or tablet

If all you have is a phone or tablet, you’ll need a third-party app to open and “unzip” (or unpack) the download file and move those music files somewhere they can be played. For a helpful list of options, check out this tutorial.
