From Netflix to Spotify, most services now focus on streaming music and videos. The problem is, you don’t always have access to the internet. Many people miss the good old days of having their personal music collection saved directly to their device where it was always accessible.
In this article, we’ll cover the five best Android apps to download music for free so that you can find new music and access it no matter where you are.
These days, many free apps are used for data collection and contain adware or other malware that will siphon your personal information for profit. Make sure to do your own research and be careful when providing permissions to all apps.
