How do I use music square on my Samsung Galaxy Note2?

I don't know how to move the music into music square

When using Music Square, you specifically won't move the music into the squares. The music square will sort out the music according to the specific track. Depending on the beat of the song or even the words they will be automatically put into a category - either Exciting, Passionate, Joyful, Calm, New or Old.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

There is no way to specifically move music into each square specifically. Simply tap on a square near one of the moods in order to play a random song according to the mood.

Here is a video Explaining Music Square.
