What's New in Version 3.3.61

Performance improvements, bug fixes, and a whole lotta style.

*** Community Update ***

While we’d really rather not have any limits on listening, we’ve exhausted all short-term options to keep 8tracks free for everyone, as it has been for the past 9 years. Unfortunately, with recent increases in royalty rates, we have no choice but to shift towards subscriptions for listeners in the US (which we’ve priced as affordably as possible). Everyone can still listen for free, but there is a weekly limit which resets each Monday. In the meantime, we’re exploring new ways to allow us to raise the free listening limit while still ensuring a healthy future for our service and the community. Thanks for continuing to support 8tracks!

Customer Reviews

Great collection of playlists!

I enjoy this app a lot, even with the recent change to one free hour of music a week, but I can't seem to get the app to work on my phone. I have an iPhone 6S, and after an update a month or so ago the app stopped playing playlists. The updates since then haven't fixed it, and I've tried all the solutions suggested on the help page. The app still works on my iPhone 5S (I decided to stop updating it until it started working on my 6S again though). I'm not sure if this is happening to other users as well.

This happened a while ago as well, but it was eventually fixed with one of the updates, so hopefully this time it will be fixed as well!

On a more positive note, I really love the set up of the app. It's so fun to listen to playlists that fit into such a wide variety of categories, and know that each one is full of songs that someone loved and put together. Thank you for creating such a wonderful app!!

UPDATE: The problem has since been fixed, and I’m enjoying the app again!

Worth the $30

Look, I was as mad as everyone else when free unlimited listening was discontinued, but $30 for a whole year of no ads and all the music I want? That's a price I'm willing to pay. Besides, it really isn't that much, it's only $2.50 a month, which just means you can't have your latte from Starbucks (just one darn time a month) and boom you've paid for all the music you can listen to!

Frankly, if you can afford a cellphone or a computer, I'm pretty sure you can cough up $2.50 a month or $4.99 if you aren't sure you want the year long commitment. For me, though? Easiest $30 I've ever spent.

Weird music for the weird soul

I’ve used 8tracks since my freshman year of high school and beyond, for writing inspiration, for homework, for background noise, etc.
Almost all of my favourite artists today, I’ve found through some weird aesthetic playlist in the back-end of a search tag. Despite some clunky UI and the occasional bizarre glitch, it’s overall a smooth and incredible service, and well worth the price for exposure to so much good music. Just glad I’ve got the space for it on my phone again!
