We’re well into the streaming generation of media consumption with music downloads in the age of Spotify, and it’s starting to feel a bit like DVDs in the age of Netflix. With that said, there’s just something reassuring about having your music right there on your device without having to worry about the vagaries of bad Internet connections or keeping yourself entertained on long-haul flights. You probably want a music download app for your Android phone to download music to your device.
Here are our favorite music download apps for Android that won’t cost you a penny.
There are two different versions of the Fildo app – one is the “Music Player” on the Play Store, but this won’t get you the MP3 downloader you’re looking for. To get the version of Fildo that lets you download free music, you need to install the APK from the official Fildo site.
Once you have that, use the in-app search to look for specific songs or albums you want to look for. You can also use the various “Top” charts from various music sites that the app integrates with if you want to explore the hits. Once you find the album or song you want, press the “+” icon at the top-right corner, then choose the relevant option to either download the music, create a playlist or listen to it right then.
One of the more elegant and official-looking music downloader apps, YMusic lets you play any YouTube video as an audio file, even letting you run it in the background on your phone. The real kicker here is that you can also download videos as audio files. You have the option to download them in the M4A and MP3 formats, and it has a great library UI that subsequently lets you manage your music files just like you would in a music player app.
Of all the options on this list, YMusic is hands-down the most convenient (although you do have to download it from outside the Play Store) and most reliable. For those reasons, it tops our list, Maketecheasier noted.

In this online music streaming community, the content is uploaded by independent artists and famous musicians. You can search for songs through bands or artists tags in the search bar. SoundCloud was also recently featured on our list of India’s best music streaming services.

At present this site caters to nearly 4 million artists, labels, and users and provides a great user experience to music lovers through its impressive catalog.

The songs uploaded at Jamendo Music are protected by Creative Commons license, which means you can safely download music offered on the website.

Amazon is the biggest online retailer offering a wide variety of products on the web. Amazon has also started offering digital products such as games and even songs. You can buy your MP3 songs directly from Amazon Music Store but you don’t have to pay for the songs if you don’t want to.
It also offers free songs for download directly from their website or their mobile apps. Moreover, it consists of more than 46,000 free songs available at the time of writing this article which makes it one of the largest legal free music repositories on the internet.
PureVolume is a community of music lovers. Artists can signup and upload their music on the site and listeners can help the artists by downloading or listening to their songs and upvoting them. Each artist has their own profile with their basic details, music, and photos.
It’s up to the artist to allow downloads or not, if the artist has allowed downloads then you can download their songs. Most of the artists on PureVolume have downloads enabled so you can enjoy great music for free.
Some artists have only enabled online streaming for songs which means you can stream as many of their songs as you want for free but you can’t download them on your device for offline usage. You can get free covers and remixes for the most popular songs as well, Beebom listed.
SoundClick is the ultimate portal into finding free music directly from the artists websites. These artists have decided they'd like to let people download their music for free. This includes signed and unsigned musicians.
Browse through the music charts and genres until you find a free music download you'd like to have and then either listen to or download that song.
You can also create custom radio stations, get to know other listeners on the forums, and read more about your favorite SoundClick artists.
While you can, of course, download music, some artists make their music available only after you've paid for the download, and others allow music streaming only.
You'll like Audiomack if you like SoundCloud and are interested in finding new music. All the music on this website is 100 percent legal and free to stream, and depending on the artist, you'll find music downloads, too.
The Audiomack website is very easy to use. You can search for songs, albums, and artists or browse the Trending or Top Songs sections. There's also a Recently Added page to find all the newest music at Audiomack.
Some of the music genres on this website include reggae, pop, R&B, hip-hop, instrumental, and afrobeats. You can download music at Audiomack without needing a user account. Most if not all of the songs are in the MP3 format. If you prefer to stream music from your phone or tablet, Audiomack works that way, too, via the the Android app and the app for iOS devices.
BeatStars has free music downloads, too. Something great about this site's offerings is that you don't have to search all over the place to find them; just use the link below to get a list.
You can sort the list by top selling, trending, and latest, and filter by genre and several moods, such as mellow, lazy, inspiring, and silly. There are several song types you can use as a filter as well, including beats, beats with chorus, vocals, song reference, and songs.
The biggest oddity with this site is that for some music, you have to subscribe to the artist's profile or YouTube channel before you can get to the download link. It takes just a few clicks to do it but it doesn't cost anything. Others have you enter your email address to receive the download link.a
