Though streaming services like Spotify and Deezer seem to be taking precedence over music download apps, most of us still prefer downloading free music which also comess with the advantage of listening to offline. Here are some of the best free music downloading apps for Android.

Soundcloud

If you don’t have this app on your phone right now, you’d better get it as soon as possible, because Soundcloud has for a while now been hard at work to introduce a subscription fee for its services and it looks like this might happen before the end of 2016.

At the time being however, the Soundcloud service is available for free, offering thousands upon thousands of free music, with every minute seeing uploads of up to 12 hours of audio, including live recordings and mixes. Not all these tracks can be downloaded for free, but at least most of them are.
