From acting as a soothing balm on broken hearts to encouraging revolutionary protests. Can anyone here imagine life without music and beats?

Best Offline Apps For Music Streaming
The six best offline music apps are :
So the first one on our list of apps that lets you listen to music offline is SPOTIFY. It is not a music app that works offline on Android phones only but as well as on a PC or laptop also.
To listen to music offline, one will have to subscribe to Spotify Premium, which has been gaining popularity since it was launched in Sweden in 2008.
Unfortunately, one needs to subscribe to be able to listen to music offline, but one is free to save as many songs as one likes and gives freedom to create their playlists. Well, this app also allows its users to stream videos and listen to podcasts. You can also download and convert these songs from MP3 to MIDI enhanced music quality.
We all might have heard the tagline ‘bas bajna chahiye gaana,’ which belongs to none other than the Gaana app. This app came into existence in April 2010 and eventually established itself as the largest commercial music streaming app by providing both Indian and International Music content.
Unfortunately, users of Gaana as well have to subscribe to Gaana Plus to be allowed to listen to music offline. Gaana Plus subscription comes with some appealing features like downloading an unlimited number of songs in high quality.
Next up on our list is MUZIFY, one of the free music apps without internet. Now we know Muzify as a free app among this list of apps that lets you listen to music offline and online. But it came into existence as a website where one could download ringtones for free.
Gradually, with time it grew its music content and now lets its users download songs and listen to them offline. Fortunately, there is no story of subscription or premium version for this app.
JioSaavn Music & Radio
Does the ‘Saavn’ name ring a bell? Well, Saavn came into existence in 2006 in North America, and its content comprised mainly of Bollywood songs. Today it’s a leading company, and the majority of its stake is held by Reliance Digital Ltd.
It is one of the freemium music apps without data. Now, what does ‘Freemium’ means? It is similar to the ones mentioned above, where one can avail of basic online streaming but would have to pay for features like better streaming quality and offline listening.
This app is useful for people with a jio network who can avail all the features for free, but that offer stands valid only for the first three months from the starting date.

Google Play Music
So, the last one on our list of apps that lets you listen to music offline is Google Play Music. Of course, it is one of the best app to listen to music offline, but there is always a catch.
