Can you imagine a world without music? Me either, it brings joy to your world and music has had an impact on everyone you know. Music inspires us and brings ups hope. We listen to music while at work, during free time and can you imagine trying to finish your workout at the gym without your favorite tunes. The latest trend in music is listening to streaming services.
We have basically two types of streaming services, paid sites and others that are offered free. The difference between the two lies in your ability to download the music. If you subscribe to a paid service you can download the music and load it onto your MP3 player to listen whenever you want. You can either pay a monthly subscription fee or you can pay for each song you download. Free streaming services allow you to listen to any music you want via the internet.
Here are 5 free digital music streaming sites you can listen to:
Pandora is more like digital radio where you can choose the genre of music that you prefer. After you pick the genre it will offer you a play list where you choose songs to play and listen to. Pandora has over a million songs in their catalogue so you are bound to find something that suits your fancy. You will need to create an account to listen to music and it does offer a paid option if you want to download the music you listen to. They also have an app for your phone so you can listen on the go.
Spotify has more than 20 million songs in their catalogue and it is one of the oldest streaming sites. You will need to create an account even for free listening and there are ads on Spotify, you can upgrade to the paid version to get rid of them. Spotify also has an app for your phone.
If you have ever owned an iPhone or iPod then you know all about iTunes and no explanation is needed. You need to be an Apple user and again you can get free and paid options.
This site has a pretty big catalogue that you can access along with a search feature to find your favorite song or artist. Many of the songs can be downloaded at no cost while there are some that have a fee.
Last but not least we come to Jango, it is purely for streaming and you don’t have to sign up. If you do sign up you can create your own radio stations with all your favorite tunes.
