Freegal App Updates – April 2018

Freegal is announcing the launch of the all-new Freegal Music Service on April 4, 2018.  This launch is the by-product of 18 months of work which has also included the feedback of library patrons across the country.

 

Access Freegal here, or download the Freegal app to your personal device.

On April 4, the Freegal Music Site will be down for approximately 10 hours (12:00 AM EDT – 10:00 AM EDT). When it is back up, there will be an entirely new product and new apps for the iOS and Google stores.  You will be able to use your existing credentials, and all your playlists and stored music will be preserved.  You will receive their customary notification from the stores that an update is ready, and those that allow automatic updates will have a seamless experience.  New FAQs and a video tutorial will guide you through the site.

The highlights of the new service include:

  • A completely new set of mobile apps that take advantage of new technology to allow the same robust website experience in the palm of your hand. This is what the future of our service looks like – everything on the phone. Great discovery, great functionality and an intuitive and clean interface.
  • An emphasis on curated music. We know that of our almost 3 million users, 50% of them come to the site looking to discover music rather than finding something specific. To that end, we now have over 100 playlists to meet every mood or whim. New lists will be published weekly, and they are pleasingly displayed on the site and the apps.
  • A simple, clean and modern new interface to help you quickly explore the breadth and depth of our content base, which is now 15 million tracks and includes music videos.

The all new Freegal will still include:

  • New content every day. Our worldwide catalog contains 15 million songs from more than 30,000 music labels that originate in over 100 countries.
