While music streaming apps like Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music have significantly changed how we consume music on our mobile devices, some people still prefer maintaining their own digital library – and for good reason too. Firstly, streaming music online can use up a good portion of your mobile data. Some people may find downloading music to be a much better alternative to streaming their favourite artists over and over again. While streaming services like Spotify offer the option to download your favourite songs, the downloads are only available until your subscription lasts. For those who would rather maintain a local music library on their smartphone, here are the 7 best offline music player apps for Android.
