Is the pandemic driving you insane? Are you a bass/music head waiting to attend concerts & clubs? Why not just bring it all within your vicinity with these FREE music streaming applications while keeping it safe! This article will list the best FREE music applications out there in 2020 to keep your beats bumping.
Starting from the world’s largest & most popular music application, Spotify.
Spotify is currently the world’s most popular music streaming service & for many reasons. Spotify contains the most extensive listing of music & has a release radar chart along with personalized playlists all customized for your taste.
Spotify has two versions, a premium & a free version. Providing multiple music genres such as Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, to name a few. Spotify’s app developers have thought about every detail while developing this application. The easy to use interface is also its central point, allowing all levels of users to use the application with ease.
The Free version allows for unlimited streaming & searching of music; however, it has some limitations. You get limited to 10 skips per hour & can listen to music in only 160kbps or 96kbps. Do not let these limitations hold you back from listening to more than 45 million songs found in their library.
However, if you do opt-in for their Premium version, you get to listen to music in 240kbps, no ad guarantee and get to download the music to listen to them offline when the internet is not available. Available on iOS & Android.
A must-have application for your music streaming needs.

2. YouTube Music
YouTube Music, a recently developed web-based application, has made its way to mobile. YouTube Music, as the name implies, is a music streaming service provided by YouTube (Google now) to compete with Spotify.
Just like Spotify, it has two versions, a paid & a free version of the application for users. The free version provides an extensive library of music also including live recordings & concerts within the application for its users; however, because it is the free version of the application, it does feature a heavy ad presence.
Do not be deterred by this; the quality of music is high with AAC 128kbps libraries. The paid version, just like Spotify, features adless music, an option to download music to listen to offline & higher versions of audio quality.
Available on iOS & Android. Another amazing mobile music streaming application worthy of having on your mobile.

Pandora is one of the oldest music streaming services found on computer & mobile applications of the 21st century.
Pandora has one of the most useful services integrated within it, which thematically organize a playlist (of course, if you want it to) based on the artists you choose.
It figures out what type of music preferences you have & makes a listing accordingly. Pandora also features a massive 30 million + music library which contains the latest tracks from your favourite singers/producers. Considering the age of Pandora, it’s no wonder it made the list.
Music quality is great but not the best with 64kbps AAC music files; however, that may be advantageous in countries with slow internet speeds. Available on iOS & Android. Like the other applications mentioned, it does have ads. However, not as full-on as YouTube Music.
It limits users with ten skips per hour & no offline mode; however, upgrading to the paid option does remove the ads, unlimited skip potential & offline mode are all supported.

4. Amazon Prime Music

Prime Music allows for a massive 60 million + music library to be listened to by its members with unlimited skips, no ads & the highest audio qualities.
It also features offline download mode for when the internet is not available. Available on iOS & Android. Has there been a better time to join Amazon Prime? This music application certainly makes you think not!
