How to listen to music for free and legally ?

The possibilities of our computers, smartphones and the Internet have led to a dematerialization of music, and to a total change in the offer to listen to music. No need for physical support, even the good old mp3 tends to disappear (in any case in the form of a file), now the music listens to streaming. Understand by this that you will connect to a flow that does not require download or complex software, it is almost as simple and fast as to turn on your transistor.

Another advantage, many of these services are accessible free of charge and legally, and offer several million songs.

Free free musical streaming services is most often accompanied by a few limitations. This is quite normal, these offers are first of all made to encourage you to switch to a paid offer to finance the service and the artists:

  • Presence of advertisements between songs. Minor disadvantage in my opinion, because let’s be objective, there are much less than the radio.
  • No music download possible. If you listen to music on the go, you will need an internet connection, and you will quickly start the mobile data on your telephone package.
  • Audio quality is quite similar between different streaming services in free mode, generally in standard quality of 320 kbps. Again, it’s not worse than radio (and even better in my Montreuillois sector and the 7 valleys The reception is far from optimal).
  • Research functions and the creation of playlists are often limited in relation to the paid offer. But again, when you turn on the radio you choose the musical atmosphere, not the details of the titles. Even with a free offer, you have more control over the content than listening to an FM radio.

For better audio quality, to delete advertisements, and access offline listening possibilities, you will have to pay a subscription for one of the paid offers offered by streaming platforms. The good news is that it is not useful to multiply the subscriptions. You will generally have unlimited listening possibilities and a service that works on most of your devices: computers, smartphones, connected speakers.

YouTube Music

Who does not know Youtube ? This video streaming service has interfered everywhere, to the point of the same time invitating TV shows.

Music has always been present on YouTube, which is an ideal platform for the broadcast of video clips. Logically, Google took advantage of this huge musical library to structure musical content through a sub-platform dedicated to music: YouTube Music.

YouTube Music is now the most used free online music service in France, with 44% market share, compared to 20% for ex-leader Spotify.

Easy to use, this musical service works on a lot of devices: Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook, Android or iPhone computers, and on Google Home compatible connected speakers.

The offer on YouTube Music is legal and free. After years of war between the Internet giant and record companies, the Mountain View firm seems to have found a compromise allowing to pay the authors and filter the contents that do not respect the copyrights.

A paid version exists that will allow you to get rid of advertising. This paid offer is progressing very quickly since Google’s musical streaming service claims 4 years after its creation 80 million subscribers. The paid version is offered at € 9.99/month

In November 2022, Google said it had crossed the symbolic bar of the 100 million songs available attentive.

Spotify has long been the most popular musical streaming service, and the rest in its paid version with 195 million subscribers.

In its free version, Spotify will insert advertisements from time to time in your playlists. You will also be limited in research possibilities and will often have to deal with ready -made reading lists. If you are looking for free, these limitations should not however bother you too much.

You can use Spotify on a large number of devices. The integration of the service is in particular very good on most connected speakers, which they operate under Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The service can also interface with certain GPS such as the famous Waze.

The Spotify musical catalog is around 80 million titles according to the publisher. What to find your happiness whatever the musical style you are looking for.

Deezer

Despite his name, Deezer is a French service. In the number of users worldwide, it therefore acts as a little thumb, but it is nonetheless a high -quality musical streaming platform which will offer you a wide choice of music. The small French of Deezer indeed claim a catalog of 90 million titles.

Last.FM

Last.FM is not strictly speaking a musical streaming platform. It is a site around music that will compile links to other streaming services (mainly YouTube), and which offers you a web radio.

The site is very focused on the recommendation and discovery of new music, with a section dedicated to concerts.

The site is funded by advertising. It is integrated on certain smart and connected speakers televisions.

Last.fr is a little more technical for use than a majority of sites presented in this article, but is different from a more turned approach to artists than music. You will therefore find more editorial there than on other sites. Interesting if you like to follow the news of your favorite artists.

Tunein

Unlike other services presented in this article, Tunein is not an online music service, but offers you access to radios around the world (100,000 stations are available). In addition to national radios, radios in your region are also available. On the Opal Coast, we find as on the FM band our usual RDL, FM contact, radio 6, France Bleu Nord.

Tunein is very practical to follow your favorite stations even outside your region or when the reception is bad. This service also avoids having to connect to the site of each radio, you will find everything in the same place. Thanks to this wide choice you should not only find the music you like, but also access information services and many podcasts.

Tunein works in a web browser and has mobile applications for Android and iOS, applications for Windows and MacOS. It also fits into the Alexa and Google Assistant connected speakers.

Most Tunein features are free. There is a premium offer but rather intended for the American market since its main interest is to add the American sports radios allowing to follow basketball, the indica, hockey.

Musicm

Like Deezer, Musicme is a French service. Our national artists are therefore well represented, you will find there the 4 majors (BMG, EMI, Sony, Universal Music, Warner Music) and many independent labels. The Musicme catalog is more limited than other services with 6 million titles available, but that is sufficient.

Online listening is free and does not impose an account creation.

Musicme is different from other services by the possibility of buying a song or album. You can then download it to your device for unlimited listening.

A paid offer is available, 2 formulas at € 3.99 and € 9.90 / month. The cheapest allows you to delete advertisements when listening in a web browser, the second integrates mobiles and the possibility of downloading music for offline listening.

Musicm is integrated into the digital offer of certain media libraries. This is for example the case for the Departmental Media Library of Pas de Calais or the CA2BM media library network. A good plan that allows you to have premium features.

Soundcloud

Soundcloud is distinguished from other musical streaming services by proximity to artists. The platform aims to make new artists known by allowing them to directly disseminate their contents. The result is a very wide catalog of more than 150 million titles or young artists cotoying the Goldman or Sardou.

The site also has a social dimension allowing you to follow your artists, recommend them, and discover new talents.

In its free version there will be advertising between the songs. A paid offer at € 9.99/month allows you to get rid of advertising and having an offline mode allowing you to listen to your music without internet connection.

Listen for free music on SoundCloud: https: // soundcloud.com/

8tracks

The 8Tracks streaming service is resolutely more elitist. It allows Internet users to broadcast their own music, so it’s an excellent platform to discover new talents.

The principle of 8tracks (pronounced infinity tracks) is to allow Internet users to generate and share mixes. It has an important social dimension in order to allow you to expand your musical universe.

The service is currently being restarted and is only officially accessible to the USA. For France, features are therefore limited and often listening will go through YouTube. To access the entire catalog you can however go through a VPN which will geolocate you across the Atlantic.
