If you haven’t guessed already, you can unlock music using the SongSneak App in your smartphone menu. When using the app, it detects nearby music in your environment and adds it to your Music App playlist. When you hear music playing nearby, start the app and the song is saved.

Tips to obtaining music:
  • Stand near businesses or newstands that have a radio playing.
  • Hack NPCs’ phones and listen to their music.
  • Complete a specific mission during the main storyline.
Get additional information with the Media App such as:
  • Musician Bios: History and bios of band selected.
  • Edit Playlist: Arrange your music playing while your doing your thing.

Upon successfully obtaining each song, you’ll be rewarded with it unlocked, and when unlocking 23 songs in the SongSneak App, you’ll get the Disk Space Full (Achievement).
