  • Spotify

Impossible to search for a music app and not think about Spotify. Configuring itself as the best known and most used streaming service worldwide for its rich musical repertoire, it allows you to listen to your favorite songs (or the ones you like most that are part of the repertoire!) At no cost. However, there are some constraints, that is, it works in shuffle mode: this is an option that consists in providing a free music service in which millions of songs follow each other in an arbitrary way as they are taken from a pre-established playlist (but also in reference to a single singer for which different titles belonging to the same voice will be promoted). In addition, the basic version allows you to skip a maximum of six songs per hour. If no subscription is stipulated, the songs cannot be downloaded offline and high quality is not expected as a listening mode.

But the Premium version clears the limits. By switching to Premium, you are entitled to a free first month. At the end of the offer, a payment of € 9.99 upwards is stipulated and it can be canceled at any time. With the paid version you can download and listen to music at any time and on different devices without any advertising interruption, plus the skips are unlimited, just press “NEXT” to skip as many songs as you want. You can select different subscriptions: they range from Individual for € 9.99; Student at € 4.99; Family for € 15.99 (up to six accounts) and Duo for € 12.99 (for two accounts). Just go to the site and click on "download" to enjoy millions of free songs from the App Store, Google Play or Microsoft, listening to music from your mobile, tablet or car.

YouTube Music

By clicking on the site of the YouTube Music music platform, you can choose the authors by selecting the oval on a black background that gives you more emotions. Music Premium is free for the first month, you can have music without ad interruptions, offline and with the screen off. The first bar shows the most clicked authors followed by Mixtape for you, Hits, Shortcuts and other playlists tailored to the case, such as the selections for the good mood or those for the weekends, without forgetting the Live Performances.

To take advantage of the background listening mode, to be able to download offline content and play audio only (without video, so as to save giga) it is necessary to subscribe to a subscription from € 9.99 per month (or € 14.99 per month, if you opt for the family plan with 6 accounts). Once the payment has been made, use is easy and intuitive: just click on the button with the three vertical dots next to the song title and click on DOWNLOAD from the menu.

Amazon Music

Another app for listening to free music is Amazon Music. With Prime Music you can enjoy more than 2 million songs to your liking along with hundreds of playlists and radios, as well as tune them to your favorite devices even offline so as not to consume connection and always have them at hand. The service is integrated into the subscription of Amazon Prime subscribers, without ads. Amazon Music Unlimited gives you unlimited access to a rich playlist born from the minds of Amazon experts along with 70 million lyrics, playlists and radios.

You can download a huge musical repertoire of songs in one click and listen to them in any place and at any time. Amazon prime subscribers also have the right to apply for an annual subscription. If you subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited on iTunes (when available), the subscription fee is subtracted from your iTunes account, after which the subscription will automatically renew at the end of each month. If you prefer that the service is not automatically reactivated, you can request its suspension at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period.


A reality at hand for all lovers of good music: artists, DJs and simple enthusiasts all come together virtually to exploit its potential, some to make themselves known and those to appreciate. Soundcloud is the platform that welcomes thousands of original songs together with as many numerous remixes to listen to (and download, in some cases) for free. You can register at no cost, even if the app, available for Android iOS, can also be used without access to an account. A cons? Tracks cannot be downloaded offline. Now it's up to you to select the song or artist that most closely matches your musical preferences. Use the drop-down menu to move quickly on the platform or help yourself with the magnifying glass to search for what interests you. Et voilà, that's it. The free version features over 120 tracks from established artists or budding musicians.

You can connect with your friends and share content, creating customized playlists according to need. The Soundcloud Go version, with only € 5.00 per month, offers you more: all the music available wherever you want in offline mode divided by customizable playlists and no advertisements – to listen to the songs of the heart without interruption. Part of the proceeds from your subscription will be donated to the creators of the platform. Finally, with Soundcloud Go + you have the top of the top: from 120 million songs to 200 million. If you want to try the latest version you have 30 days for free, if you like it with € 10.99 per month the subscription is yours.


If you are still not satisfied with all the apps compiled so far, try Jamendo. The tool available for Android gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in streaming and downloadable content for free. There are over 500,000 songs on one of the most popular platforms for independent musicians who love to share their content. Also included are 13 radio stations that span genres including Jazz, Pop, Hip hop, Electro, Classical, Lounge, World. The peculiarity of Jamendo? There are songs that are hardly present elsewhere, as they are not associated with any record company so as to be able to draw on a much more varied, new and artisan range of options. These songs are available under a Creative Commons license and can also be used for commercial or personal purposes (subject to specific terms and conditions).


It looks like an app for listening to easy-to-use music that does not require the use of a PC and is available on both Android and iOS. Just follow simple steps, starting with the installation of the app, then search for your favorite titles and click on the button that allows the download. If you want to download music for MP3, you are served at no cost. A limit? It is not promoted on the Google Play Store, ergo for installation it is necessary to activate support for unknown sources on the device (i.e. support for apps from external sources compared to the Google Play Store) and download, armed with a little patience, the package apk required for its installation. If you do not know how to move, go to the Android settings (accessible via the gear icon), click on SECURITY and then on ON, to go to UNKNOWN SOURCES, checking the box that appears.

Now that you have made support for unknown sources active, download TinyTunes and / or install it on your device. Connect to the internet and go to to click INSTALL. Once downloaded, go to the folder and open your file confirming it, pressing first on NEXT and then on INSTALL and END. Now that you've deserved what you were looking for, have fun typing the texts you love into the magnifying glass. Once the songs have been downloaded, you can listen to them from the Library tab of the app. For those who usually follow the musical trends of the moment, you can use the RANKINGS section to access the most recent lyrics. Before leaving the next guides for music just a click away, remember, after installing the app in question, to reactivate the block for apps from unknown sources in order to reduce the risk of installing apps infected with malware.

Finally, if you want a radio for international songs from all over the world, then download, compatible with Android, iOS and Windows 10 Mobile. Have fun choosing your emotional wave from over 10 000 stations present. You can access the service for free even without having to register. As always, help yourself with the magnifying glass icon to type in the song, genre or local station you are looking for.
