Best free music apps: Welcome to What Hi-Fi? Portable music used to mean carrying around a single album on CD or cassette. Now you can now walk around with millions of songs in your pocket without worrying about storage space at all. And the best bit? You don't even need to pay. Most major music streaming services have a free tier, barring Tidal , Qobuz and Apple Music. While these free music services inevitably include adverts, and have more limited functionality than their paid-for stablemates, they're still pretty great.
