How do I add a "Now Playing" Gui on my screen?

(Not too sure if this is the right topic)

How do I add one of these on my screen in my game?
Example:
stylish-music-player-thb
Something like this.

Well, I wont go into everything as what your asking for is entire scripts, but I will give what will be needed. You will have to design the UI and its buttons. There is a sound object and it has functions like Play and Pause. Those functions are pretty self explanatory. Here is an example:

sound:Play()
sound:Pause

To get the textlabel’s text to change use something like this:

sound.PropertyChangedSignal("SoundId"):Connect(function()
nowPlaying.Text = sound.Name
end)

For an automatic players you could try making a list of song AssetIds and their titles and artists, and loop through them. When a song ends, you would update the UI with the title and artist name of the next song, and update the sound id of the Sound object.

About paying for audio, it only costs for you to upload your own audio. You can use anything on the toolbox for free.

Adding music to roblox does cost money because if it was free there would be lots of music with bad words and that would be too much for mods.

You would need to create a simple interface first for the music and then when you are done, you need to hook up a RemoteFunction to change the text on that interface or make it popup and then the rest could be handled on the client.

I think i you want to make a sound player like that, you need to to learn first how to use tween service, by getting the TimeLength and TimePosition of the Sound in the Properties tab and by updating it and tweening it I believe it is very possible
