Despite how easy it is to listen to online music nowadays thanks to applications of the likes of Spotify or Deezer, some people still prefer to resort to free platforms of dubious legality. There are many available on the Internet, and one of them is this Setbeat for Android.
It's an app that allows us to play music via streaming just like the above-mentioned services and that also offers us other functions such as the possibility to download songs and albums to listen to them offline. Its catalog isn't as extensive as those of its competitors with millions of songs but it's still a great alternative for anyone who doesn't want to or can't afford to pay a monthly flat rate.
Online music for free on your Android
By installing the APK, you'll soon realize that its interface is suspiciously similar to Spotify's. Therefore, if you're familiar with the Swedish platform it won't take you too long to get used to Setbeat. You'll soon discover how to search for songs, albums, and artists using the search tool, follow whoever you want, play music in the background or download music. From the playback controls to the pictures of the musicians or album covers on the playback screen or as thumbnails on the playlists.

How to sign up?
As you can imagine, you won't be able to find the APK of this app in the Google Play Store (the same goes for iOS, it's not in the App Store) so you'll have to resort to its official website that we link to or to other alternative stores of the likes of Aptoide or APKPure. By the way, if you're looking for a PC version, there's no need for you to download anything as it works as webapp that you can run in your browser.
Creating a Setbeat account is really simple:
- Step 1: Just go to the Login section in the menu.
- Step 2: Press on Sign Up. You can't sign up without Facebook as it's the only method available.
- Step 3: Once you've signed up, just Login pressing the Login with Facebook button or typing in your username and password.
If you like any of the songs you hear and you want to share it, you can do so via Facebook and Twitter so all your friends can find out. You can also bookmark songs as favorites so you never lose sight of them.
To install the application, simply access the web from your Android device and download the APK file. Remember that you'll have to go to the settings of your phone to allow the installation of applications from unknown sources since it's a requirement to be able to download apps that aren't in Google Play.
