  • Great way to explore

    I really feel like this is a super interesting and fun way to discover new music, and the app runs really smoothly for that. However, the experience is only half available on mobile- I'd really like to see an update happen where users can also publish and create new playlists on a mobile platform.
  • The app itself is a piece of crap

    Always crashes
  • Not for alternative dark music fans seeking new stuff

    Decided to try it based on the many 4-5 star ratings. Biggest annoyance: just installed, before the first track, you need to listen to a 30 seconds ad :-( Playlist: you get zero information about the tracks included. Track information appears as it begins playing... Fine... after skipping the first 3 (I own them, and not interested in listening to what I already have in my library, definitely not with a 30 second ad interruptions), a message appears, saying, you can't skip more than 3 tracks.. Okaaay... Switched to another Playlist. Before it begins, you get a bonus! 2 x 30 seconds ads!!! Thank you, but I'll stick to online radio and SoundCloud, at least with the later, I can select a song I haven't heard before. My Score: LAME!

    I have been using 8tracks since 2013 & it’s still my go to for listening to music. It was where I first discovered artists like Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, & The Neighbourhood. Hands down worth paying for the plus! Love listening on my phone or on the website when I’m on my computer.
  • Fantastic

    Seriously. I used to swear by this as the one place to get music. I still want to. But now it’s so overrun with ads. And before anyone wants to mention the subscription, I paid for it. And it made no difference. Just like everything else that used to be quality, it’s devolved into a relentless ad monster. It’s still great for music, as long as you’re ready to pay money AND be solicited to.
  • 8tracks is my favorite app

    I’ve been listening through 8tracks for a few years now and I must say that it is my all time favorite app for music. I tried other apps but nothing really compared. 8tracks really cares about its community, and listens to its concerns. I have never had a way to listen to music that so perfectly fits my mood before I had 8tracks. There are playlists for literally everything. I’m sad that 8tracks is not yet available outside of the U.S. & Canada, but will continue to use 8tracks for as long as possible!!! Thank you for creating such a fulfilling music experience. 😄
  • Always come back to this

    I am am an expert introvert. I have always used, and still use, music as an escape/way to connect with people and eventually grow into that. Still to this day, I always come back to this app for music. I have been using this since I was 14 and I’m now 21 and excited to be expecting my first child with my fiancé.
  • The Fall of 2014 and 2016

    2014 was the year where many software and applications started to become owned or influenced by Google. Take YouTube for example, it was an independent video streaming source of an internet sensation where everyone could be heard and seen. Many websites had changed their styles to look more like Google and some even made partnerships with them. I seriously miss the days when I didn’t have to hear “login with gmail.” In addition, I have always loved the styles of the own independent websites e.g: square profile pictures and not circle, font in text not being changed, not having to see a community become a part of Google or some of their ideas. I miss 8tracks being that way. The structure used to be better. If there is any reason why so many programs are becoming influenced by Google, I would like to know. I miss the old design and setup from 8tracks where I didn’t need to get a subscription to listen to music. I felt like I was apparently forced to make a billing payment to listen to be best music I couldn’t find anywhere else. Hopefully, I would like to see more of the “classic” return. As for Google, it turns out that Google likes to use any benefit or hidden opportunity from their users to make a business out of something with a subscription that would eventually take money from their pockets. Like the time in the fall of 2016, where Apple could not longer get their users to listen to the YouTube version of Safari in the background. The music would cut right away. They did this for business and YouTube Red could tell you that. Also, it turns out that iOS 11 was a terrible update for the Safari version of 8tracks. Once I lagged or it rained, or I even forget to unlock my phone to listen to the next track since it won't play it with my phone locked, it skips the next track, until I see get a noticed telling me I reach the skip limit when I haven’t done it at all.
