Here is a list of the best music streaming sites, so you can listen to new or your favorite songs, peacefully. No sign-up, a subscription plan is required, however, some of them have premium plans to get extra functions.

Saavn

music streaming sites, saavn

Saavn is not just for Indian users or Bollywood lovers—it’s more than that. You can also listen to Hollywood tracks, download them, loop them. You can change the bitrate according to your internet connection speed. On the web, you can only listen up to 128Kbps, but in a mobile app, you can go up to 320, crystal clear sound. But seriously even in the 128kbps, the sound is just near amazing and pretty much enough. I’ve compared the same song on Saavn and Gaana, found out Saavn’s quality is far much better. Pro-features requires a paid subscription to get all features such as 320 kbps streaming, downloading songs, being ad-free, unlock Saavn’s original content and appreciate the amazing service. One unique feature is the “Radio” which is not an actual radio station instead suppose you search for “Bebe Rexha” and click the radio button, this plays all songs of the singer automatically, one after one, and you can get back to work. Saavn is available on Android, IOS, and Windows.

The product is from Youtube, which makes this a better alternative to any music streaming site, the music catalog is really big, bigger, and better. Better bit rate.

This is a tricky one, but let me ease this out for you. With the standard use or say free, you can upload your music, which means your collection of songs and listen to them on a Mobile. You can purchase songs from the Store, which is again a Humungousaur kind of ocean for music, use the search option to find the song you’re looking to, or check new releases to find some more. You’ll need to attach a CC/DC in order to get all the functionality, this is because the copyright law varies in each country. The service is available on the Web, Android IOS, and other mobile platforms.

Microsoft’s attempt at music, there are no counts to the songs available there. You can just search for a song and listen to it, as this is a legal store, new releases come fast to it. Well like the Itunes, all the songs are paid and you’ve to use your debit or Credit card to make a purchase. If you’re looking for a simple free media streaming app, skip this one. This is not a website, an app that is built-in in Windows 10. Though, you can access the Music store from your browser and listen to a segment of any song for free.


Slacker

Slacker radio

Available only in the US and Canada, another good music streaming. And oh, Bebe Rexha, I love her. This has nothing to do with this article. I just wanted to express the love, somewhere. Apart from Rexha, this is a good website with songs-songs-songs. Additionally, you can Sign-up to use some features, make a playlist, and access various settings. Though, there will be some advertisements but yeah, cool. Access to thousands of music tracks and tons of stations created by experts, also radio for sport and comedy and many hosted music shows. Free users can make their radio stations and listen to it, only can skip 6 tracks per hour, well it won’t come to that point? maybe I guess.

The paid plan has some amazing features such as an ad-free experience, offline saving, no limit of skips, and custom playlists and frankly, I’m out of ideas.

Ohh baby Slacker // Bebe Rexha


Tidal

Open the site, search for artists or track and dive in. You can listen to songs and watch videos, though you’ll need to sign up to watch the videos or to select your preferred settings. The user interface is simple yet feels nice to the eyes. Also, you can navigate through the songs you played using the navigation buttons. Without a sign in you can’t control the music quality, or create a Playlist. The user interface is very pleasing to the eyes, a dark default layout, distraction-free.

Watch out Tidal


MixCloud

A different music streaming site, let’s say a remix-music streaming website. You can found remixes and user-created music on this website. of course, you won’t get original tracks here, but again they have got so many categories and tons of music tracks. The interface reminds me of the Google-style websites, they are simple and easy to navigate. So even a 5-year kid can listen to music, well, why would a kid jump and do this? anyway.
