What's New in Version 3.3.58

While we’d really rather not have any limits on listening, we’ve exhausted all possible options to keep 8tracks free for everyone, as it has been for the past 8 years. Unfortunately, with 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) to ensure a healthy future for our service and the community.

Don't listen to the snowflakes.

This is a great app. If anyone has been following 8tracks (like the spoiled snowflakes who used to love the service and don't anymore because they only ever seeked completely free music and services), you'd know they've been fighting to keep up with other very successful music streamers. To pay less than $5 a month to help maintain the app's "plus" content and keep it as good as possible has been a no-brainer. Like, really.

There comes a time when companies you used to believe in and/or support need more than just word-of-mouth; they need actual financial support. Paying for this service to have the awesome variety and truly epic playlists that we share with each other is much more than any other mainstream service can provide.

8tracks is an actual community that is worth supporting and being a part of. We share the same love - music. Join us :-)

Problems with playing playlists, but a great music service

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!!

Best streaming music service. Bar none.

Have been using 8tracks since 2009. I don't mind that this is not an on-demand serive. These are playlists that you have to listen through which to me is better. Keeps my attention.

The other services aren't horrible but ultimately there is no other service like 8tracks. Best new music discovery. I love it because the playlists are created by music lovers who have to take the time to create them. Time to create a cover and cool title, set a mood.

You can like playslists, save them to category you create. Awesome organization. Like having your own personal streaming library of favorites.

Only someone who truely loves music will do this. I love discovery of old music, sometimes mixed in with new music with the same sound and vibe. So much fun to pick any genre and find amazing playlists to match. My favorite genres are typicaly new wave, coldwave, goth, EBM and the playlists never disappoint. Always great to see what like minded fans are listening to and surprising me with bands I didnt know about. Same for Indie music.

I have plenty of playlists myself. Oh, how can I forget! It's the best yearly subscription price for a streaming service.
