Best Unblocked Music Sites – The possibilities of our computers, smartphones and the Internet network have led to a dematerialization of music, and to a total change in the offer allowing the listening of music. No more need for physical support, even the good old MP3 tends to disappear (at least in the form of a file), now the music can be listened to in streaming. Understand by this that you will be connecting to a stream that does not require a download or complex software, it is almost as simple and fast as turning on your transistor.
Another advantage is that many of these services are accessible free of charge and legally, and offer several million songs.
The fact that free music streaming services are free most often comes with a few limitations. It’s quite normal, these offers are above all made to encourage you to switch to a paid offer allowing you to finance the service and the artists:
- Presence of advertisements between songs. Minor inconvenience in my opinion, because let’s be objective, there are a lot less than on the radio.
- No music download possible. If you listen to music on the go, you will need an internet connection, and you will quickly start using the mobile data of your telephone plan.
- The audio quality is quite similar between different streaming services in free mode, usually at standard quality of 320 kbps. Again, it’s no worse than the radio ( the 7 Valleys reception is far from optimal).
- The search functions and the creation of playlists are often limited compared to the paid offer. But again, when you turn on the radio you choose the musical atmosphere, not the detail of the titles. Even with a free plan, you have more control over the content than listening to FM radio.
