List of Ways to Download Music For Free
1. XTunes (Discontinued)
XTunes was one of the best apps that were not on google play store. However, it was unfortunate to see the app discontinue. We don’t know why the developer ditched the app. Anyhow some users have reported that they are still able to use the app.
The interface is straightforward, and you will have to enter the song or artist or album name. It will show the list of available songs and its quality and just one click away to download on your Android device.
If you are Android Geeks, then there is no way that you don’t know about this app. It is primarily used to download youtube videos. It comes in very handy on an Android device. It also can extract audio from the videos.
It also can extract audio from the videos. So you can direct download music from YouTube using this option. Kindly note that according to YouTube TOS, you can’t do that. It is one of the reasons why TubeMate is not on Google Play Store.
From the comparison of the interface of TubeMate and InsTube, you can see that InsTube has a very materialistic design and looks fantastic. You can download music from youtube as well as videos from youtube and lots of the other websites as well. Well, you can refer to the screenshot above. Also, many settings will help you manage these downloads and your smartphone’s battery life.
4. 4K Video Downloader
If you don’t like downloading videos and music from your smartphone, then 4k Video Downloader is the best way to download videos and music from almost any website. However, we noticed one limitation with the free version: you cannot download more than 25 videos if you are trying to download the playlist. So if you want to do that, then grab the premium version!
Jamendo is one of the biggest free music repositories where you can find music by thousands of artists. The user interface of Jamendo is incredible and far beyond expectation for a free service. You can browse music by genre, trending, most downloaded, which makes it easier to find the music of your taste. Let us know what you think about this service.
SoundCloud is yet another service like Jamendo where you can find songs, but it is not as cool as Jamendo. It is because not all the music on SoundCloud is free and downloadable. However, it serves as an alternative to Jamendo.
Similarly, the user interface is excellent, and what makes it great is a very active user community. You can also download remixes of songs and tweaked songs that are generally not available everywhere to download. Still, the Creative Commons license makes it possible on SoundCloud.
It may come as a surprise as we have listed 4shared here. That is because 4shared is a free cloud storage service that allows searching through publicly shared files. Just go to the 4shared website and search for anything that you require.
In 60% of cases, you will find what you were looking for, whether it is music, software, or anything. To download that file, you will need to log in and wait a few seconds until the download begins.
8. Smart Googling
If none of the methods work for you, then there is always a place you can look for, which is the ultimate Google. Just search for the track name along with the album or year. Scroll through the first 2-3 pages, and most probably, you will find the track you were looking for.
