8tracks is a freemium app that works a lot like Pandora, but instead of listening to playlists curated randomly by a computer based on a single song or artist, you'll be able to listen to playlists that were created by real people simply because they wanted to hear them.
- Playlist Browsing and Creation
- Explore Real Playlists
- Over Three Million Playlist Options
- Limited Free App
There are over three million playlists that can be accessed through the 8tracks software entirely for free. Each and every playlist in the app was developed by someone with a passion for that particular music. You can find mixes that are ideally suited for various needs, like something to play in the background while relaxing, working out, or studying. There are playlists designed to uplift your spirits, set a romantic mood, or prompt a dance party. Every playlist was designed by a person who wanted to create something unique and special. Anyone who wants to find new indie rock, fan created mixes, electronic music, hip-hop, and just about any other genre of music can find what they want in 8tracks. You can listen to music through the software completely for free if you are willing to accept limits on the functionality and fairly constant ads, but you can also choose the upgraded version that has no ads and allows for unlimited listening. If you want to stay a free listener, you'll be able to get a lot out of the software. You can still use it to find mixes that center around genres, artists, moods, or other metrics. You can build your own playlists and save them for later use. You'll be shown personalized recommendations based on your general preferences, and you won't experience the same sort of repetitive songs that you often experience with other apps like Pandora. If you want to upgrade to a paid subscription, you'll also get unlimited listening and a completely ad-free experience. With 8track Plus, you'll never be interrupted between songs or playlists, and you can even use a badge on your profile to show off your love of music. There are several ways you can enjoy the 8tracks software in the comfort of your home. The free version is useable at any time, but if you want 8track Plus, you'll have to pay a premium of $4.99 per month. If you opt for an annual subscription, the overall cost is reduced to only $39.99. If you have an iOS device and simply want to remove ads without upgrading to the full 8track Plus, you can do so for only $19.99 per year. Subscriptions renew when the billing period comes to end, and you can cancel your 8track Plus subscription whenever you like. If you cancel before the current billing period is over, you won't be charged for another cycle and you'll continue to have access to the system until the end of your original billing cycle. You can also turn off auto-renewal at any time.
