Download these Windows 8 Music Apps today!
Sadly, there’s no media player in Windows 8. But music lovers, you need not worry! Now that you have applications in Windows 8, you can do lot more that what you were doing with the applications in the earlier versions of the operating systems from Microsoft. These apps are right on the screen and you don’t have to open an application to change to your favorite track. Let’s see some of the music applications that you can use in Windows 8.
Tunein Radio is a great app that lets you listen to more than a thousand radio stations from various parts of the world. By default, the local radio stations are displayed to you on the app, based on your location. But you can also change the channels and listen to music from various countries. You need a Tunein account to start using this app and it’s completely free. Once you create your account, you can save the channels as your favorites, and search for songs or channels easily from the charms bar on your Windows 8. It’s a great app and you can stream music that’s available for public for free easily!
This app has free services and also premium services where you’d have to pay a measly amount of $4 per month. This premium account will remove the ads from the radio and you can skip songs whenever you want. With the free account, the number of ‘skips’ you can perform are stipulated.Â This application bears similarities with Pandora, the famous app. You can create your own channel with your favorite artists and that’s the major draw for this application. Once you add an artist to the channel, similar artists are automatically played on your channel. If you don’t like the artist or the song, it can be removed from the playlist.
This is the default music app that comes with the operating system. Though you cannot compare this app to the above apps, this app has its own advantages. This app has a neat design and is really user-friendly. A whole new set of features and tools like Xbox Music, Smart DJ, and others make this application worth it. Smart DJ is a tool that allows you to easily search for your favorite artist and play their top songs and song similar to that artist. You need an account to use this application and that too if you use your Windows account for your login, you don’t need another account to use this application.
These are some of the music applications that you can download and use on your Windows 8 to enjoy some great music while you are working or relaxing. Go on, download these apps and listen to great music!
