Let’s begin!

1. Soundcloud 

With over 265 million tracks, Soundcloud is a creator-focused Website with a mobile App. Boasting a 4.7 rating on the Android PlayStore, Soundcloud is one of the oldest music communities App out there. 

With lots of creators, reuploads, and a simple but intuitive UI, users can like, share, repost, and comment on tracks. Users can leave comments that stick to specific time-stamps, as commonly observed at “beat-drop” moments in the song. 

While you can’t download music files from Soundcloud, whenever you play a song, it is saved in the App’s offline memory cache. Return to the music when offline, and you’ll find that your music still plays.

2. YouTube Music 

This platform has a 4.3 rating and is listed number 8 in the top free category. YouTube Music lets you save tracks offline, along with all the other features of any standard music player. 

Linked to your Youtube account, you can download music for free easily on this platform with its easy to use UI.

3. Spotify

All the rage in music these days, Spotify is, by many accounts, the most popular music player in the world right now. Linked with various other apps that let you import or showcase your Spotify playlists, this platform is the best choice for everything mainstream.
