CDs, vinyl and the invaluable radio still exist, but the truth is that times have changed and listening to music streaming is the most common. Thus, far from resorting to illegal methods to listen to our favorite songs, there is a completely legal and free formula with which to do it through the main platforms. At least temporarily.
These are the free trials that the vast majority of these offer. And okay, it’s tedious to keep changing, but if you assume this, you should know that there are ways to not lose our playlists in change. We tell you all about it in this post.
The tools to pass your playlists will be your best allies
We have already talked on some other occasion about the methods to transfer a playlist from one platform to another. And for this reason we believe that the ‘FreeYourMusic – Easy Transfer’ app It is one of the best options and it allows transfer up to 200 songs for free. And it is also available on both iOS and Android.
FreeYourMusic – Easy Transfers
Its mechanism is very simple, since it is enough to open the app, create an account and follow these steps:
- In the ‘FreeYourMusic’ app, go to the ‘Transfer’ tab.
- In ‘Select source’ do the same, choose the platform on which you currently have the playlist.
- In ‘Select destination’ choose the new platform you are going to test and to which you want to transfer your music.
- Sign in to both platforms when prompted and grant ‘FreeYourMusic’ the necessary permissions to access the content.
- Select all the playlists you want to transfer from one platform to another.
- Click on ‘Start the transfer’ and wait for the process to finish.
This can take several minutes, always depending on the number of songs you are transferring. Likewise, it should be said that if a song you had is not available on the new platform, it will be omitted for obvious reasons. However, the latter is rare to happen, since the main platforms have a vast catalog of songs.
Streaming music platforms and their free trials
Seeing the method that can help us not to lose our playlists, it is time to get fully into knowing how much trial time the platforms offer. Of course, we emphasize first of all that in all cases they are tests for new usersso if you had already enjoyed a trial and had even paid for the service, you will not have that right.
In the same way, it should also be noted that on these platforms you will be asked for a payment method. That’s why it’s important cancel subscription before trial expires, since it will automatically renew for another month and then they will charge you. Ideally, you should set a reminder for the day before the trial is canceled (in some cases the trial is also canceled if the subscription is canceled in the first few days).
The Amazon Music service offers two types of free trial. And it is that it can be contracted both individually and through the Amazon Prime subscription, since it includes (among other things) access to the music platform.
So, individually It is priced at 9.99 euros per month, but its free trial of 30 days Allows access without paying.
On the other hand, we have the Amazon Prime subscription with a cost of 4.99 euros per month or 49.90 euros per year, but with a free trial that is also 30 days.
If you take the Amazon Music individual trial first and then the Amazon Prime trial, you will be able to get up to 2 months trial without paying a single euro.
The case of Apple Music is somewhat particular, given that offer different tests in various cases. As a standard, the service costs 4.99 euros per month in the student plan, 10.99 euros per month in the individual plan and 14.99 euros per month in the family plan. Besides, it is also included in the Apple One packages along with other services (from 16.95 euros per month to 31.95 euros per month).
Universally, the free trial Apple Music offers upon sign up is 30 daysalthough you will soon see that there are much broader ones.
The broader test is buying some AirPods or Beats headphones of any type and in any store, as long as they are new. In this case they offer 6 months free of the music service.
the apple association with MediaMarkt It also allows you to obtain a free trial of 4 months. And this works whether you have an iPhone or an Android mobile and regardless of whether or not you buy a product in the store.
Less ambitious, but just as interesting is the test with Movistar. Some customers may receive up to 3 months of service if you have never tried it before. In this case, you must be a customer of the operator and contact them to explain the activation process.
There is also the possibility of accessing via Apple One. If you never accessed any of the subscription packages they offer, a free trial of 30 days which also includes other Apple services such as iCloud storage, Apple Arcade and Apple TV +.
Regarding whether or not they can combine testssay yes, although always combining any of them with Apple One, resulting in this (in this strict order):
- Standard Test + Apple One: 2 months
- Try Movistar + Apple One: 4 months
- MediaMarkt + Apple One test: 5 months
- New AirPods + Apple One: 7 months
The most popular streaming music platform offers service completely free of charge, albeit in a limited way and with ads. Then, you have a student plan for 4.99 euros per month, an individual plan for 9.99 euros per month, a duo plan for 12.99 euros per month and finally a family plan for 15.99 euros per month.
Now, if you want a premium plan, a free trial of 30 days in any of your plans.
It should also be noted that additional promotions are often given to this standard test. At the time of publishing this post, there are none, but it is common for the student plan to have promotions of up to 3 months. Of course, in no case can you enjoy more than one test.
The artist-owned Jay Z platform has traditionally been a favorite for its sound quality, though it’s not free. It currently offers a price of 9.99 euros per month in its individual plan, having the family plan for 14.99 euros per month, the individual HiFi plan for 19.99 euros per month and the family HiFi plan for 29.99 euros per month .
Still, it offers a free trial for 30 days. A test that can be requested for any of your plans if you have never had an account on the platform before.
Notably Vodafone customers They also have discounts on the platform, although you must contract with them, since it depends on the rate. In some cases it can even be 2 years free.
The music platform of the well-known operator landed in 2021 to become an interesting proposal for Movistar customers. They will be able to access the ‘Lite’ mode for 4.99 euros per month or the ‘Premium’ for 9.99 euros per month.
It should be said that we have references from clients who have obtained free one-month trials. However, they do not offer tests as standard, so it is advisable to contact Movistar customer service to consult it. As in the case of TIDAL with Vodafone, it could depend on the type of rate that you have contracted.
We are not talking about watching music videos on YouTube, but about YouTube Music. Although it has been around for a few years, we can say that it is one of the most recent. Like many others, it offers a plan for students for 4.99 euros per month, individual for 9.99 euros per month or a family plan for 14.99 euros per month.
The good news is that all of those plans support a free trial of 30 days. And also, says YouTube, they inform 7 days before the end of the test to be able to cancel if we are not satisfied. In any case, we stress the idea of establishing a reminder ourselves. Just in case.
Another option to access YouTube Music is via YouTube Premium. This service, in addition to including ad-free videos and other benefits, includes YouTube Music. And although it costs 11.99 euros per month, it also admits a free trial of 30 days.
As in other services, we can first subscribe to YouTube Music with its 30-day trial and go to YouTube Premium when it ends. This is how you can get 60 days subscription.
Adding and adding, you can spend a year testing platforms without paying a single euro.
As you have already seen, listening to music legally and on proven platforms is possible. In fact, it may even be interesting for to be able to compare the service of all and so hire the one you like the most when these tests pass. In the end, in cases like these there is no better opinion than one’s own to know what is best for us.
Note: the data on free trials are based on active promotions at the time the article is published, so subsequent variations may occur.
