The Music Shortcuts feature of BlackBerry 10 allows the user to play music without having to go through all of the trouble just to open up the music application. The feature allows the user to switch between songs – skip to the next song or go back to a previous one. It’s easy as pressing and holding down the BlackBerry Z10’s volume hardware buttons (up and down buttons).

To activate Music Shortcuts on the BlackBerry Z10, follow the instructions below :

Step 1 : Turn on the Z10. On the home screen of the smartphone, swipe down from the top of the screen. After, tap ‘Settings’.

Step 2 : Tap ‘System Volume’, and switch Music Shortcuts from ‘off’ to ‘on’.
