5 Best Apps to Download Music for Free on Android


From Netflix to Spotify, most services now focus on music and video streaming. The problem is that you don’t always have internet access. Many people miss the good old days when their personal music collection was saved directly to their device, where it was always accessible.

In this article, we’ll cover the top five Android apps to download music for free so you can find new music and access it wherever you are.

Things to watch out for

Many free apps nowadays are used for data harvesting and contain adware or other malware that will siphon your personal information for profit. Be sure to do your own research and be careful when granting permissions to all apps.

Moreover, many free music download apps access technical loopholes to allow users to download music illegally. Some of these applications are legal in some countries and not in others, so we recommend that you check for yourself before downloading them.

To note: In this article, we will focus on apps that you can use to download music for free. For example, Spotify is a great free streaming service for music and podcasts, but you can’t download and listen to music offline with the free version.
