In this era of music listening software, there are so many options that you may be hard pressed to choose. These apps have different payment plans and music libraries, all focused on providing essentially the same service. If you are a person who likes to listen to music in 2022, there are many music listening apps that you can choose from. All of the apps I'm going to talk about are free and compatible with most Android and iOS devices. Most music listening apps allow you to use their paid options for free. While some platforms cater only for a specific genre, some platforms allow you to listen to the radio.

Free music listening apps:

  • Soundcloud
  • Spotify
  • Audiomack
  • TuneLn 
  • Idagio
  • YouTube Music
  • Deezer


As popular as other free music listening apps, SoundCloud also features new and upcoming tracks that you won't hear on any other platform. It offers ease of use to users with its very minimalistic and simple design. SoundCloud is a popular platform, especially for amateur artists, where they can easily upload their tracks.


Spotify is not only one of the most popular apps for listening to music, but also one of the best platforms you can use for free. The app offers a premium version as well as a free version with limited features. You can create a playlist with your favorite songs, listen to podcasts, follow other artists or friends, and start listening to one of thousands of playlists depending on your mood. In the latest reports released by the company, it was stated that the number of premium users reached 195 million. If you upgrade your subscription to a premium plan, you can listen to music without any ad restrictions. The free version limits unlimited song skipping.


Audiomack, like SoundCloud, is a free platform that focuses on undiscovered and new artists. The platform, which has been operating since 2012, currently has more than 17 million monthly users. Focusing specifically on specific genres such as Hip-hop and EDM, the platform has iOS, Android and desktop versions. Free features available to artists include unlimited track downloads, stats checking and monetization. The free version available to listeners contains ads.


With Tuneln, you can choose from thousands of radio stations. You can also find all radio stations by searching by artist, song or genre. There is a wide selection of radio from around the world, including general radio, music, news and sports. Currently, more than 100,000 stations are available to users. Tuneln is generally a free-to-use platform, but you can opt for an additional paid subscription if you want to remove ads or take advantage of features only available to Premium subscribers.


Idagio is a platform purely for classical music. Idagio has a very elegant design integrated with classical music, allowing you to capture all the details of conductors, soloists and individual performances. You can listen to Idagio's entire music library for free and access classical music playlists.

YouTube Music

The free version of YouTube Music lets you listen to as much music as you want, as long as you have an internet connection. However, as with other platforms, the free version will also show various ads. In its paid and free versions, the platform makes intelligent suggestions based on your preferences and offers a large library of music and videos to choose from. YouTube Music is probably one of the platforms with the largest selection of artists available for free.


Deezer is a music listening platform with over 90 million licensed tracks. You can listen or download most of the songs. There is also a premium option that allows you to listen to music in higher quality and offline. The free version has an advertising system that works in a similar model to Spotify. Deezer, a French company that entered the US market in 2016, doesn't offer much different features than other platforms, but its sleek design puts it in a competitive position.
