Spotify has big rivals, like Tidal or Amazon Music, all with paid subscriptions. We are going to tell you about eSound, a great alternative to Spotify completely free, with a spectacular interface and with a more than interesting catalog.
Application has a little trick to be able to reproduce music content without spending a single euro, so let’s see how it works and how it manages to capture millions of downloads.
An amazing app that stands up to Spotify
eSound has dramatically increased the number of downloads in recent weeks, although it has been running for a few months now. It is an alternative to SpotifyIn fact, its interface is very similar (which will help if we are coming from this platform). When we open the app we have a distribution similar to Spotify, with recommended lists, country rankings, etc..
eSound allows you to play music from the internet or our local file library
Likewise, another of its strengths is that we can access our local library via the ‘library’ option
Where’s the trick so that this app can offer almost everything Spotify has to offer? From their own page they tell us.
“eSound Music is a cross-platform media center born to simplify the management, presentation and playback of YouTube videos (or other free content from third-party platforms) using a simple and easy-to-use interface.”
eSound does not stream licensed content, download audio from YouTube and we can play it from clone interface to Spotify. The downside is that the sound quality will be far from what the paid services offer, but for an average user who is not very demanding, it is literally like playing songs from YouTube.
The service is free with some ads, with payment methods to remove the ads. For less than 15 dollars per year we have the whole year and the monthly payment is 1.99 dollars. The app can be downloaded on Android and iPhone.
