Google Play Music

Google’s music player is made for those who want a simple, classic interface for music files. Your music can be stored in the cloud so you can listen to them anytime, anywhere, and on all of your Android devices.

If you love changing the songs on your playlists, then Rdio is for you. You can stream over 18 million songs and immediately listen to your favorite hits and add them to your playlist. However, you are required to connect via the internet to build playlists that can be synced across your devices.


Equalizer is a cool app which might help enhance your stored music’s sound quality and to enable audio effects on your device. It has a bass booster, a virtualizer, 11 stock presets, and other sound enhancing functions that can help elevate your music listening experience on your Android device even further.

SoundCloud lets you listen to music and share them with others. It allows you to discover and search for music files, hear new music by audio creators, and record your own. You can share the music you want on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Tumblr. This is a great app for those who want to start their music careers online, and to those who want to listen to new music.


Shazam lets you identify songs quickly, buy the tracks you want, stream the lyrics, watch their music videos, and many more. You can get information about artists and discover new music in the app’s charts. Online sharing to Facebook and other social media sites are also available so you can always brag about how cool or discriminating your musical taste is.


A highly popular music player, Winamp features wireless desktop sync capabilities that also imports items from your music library. You can also sync it to your Winamp installs on other systems, like your desktop computer. The app’s equalizer can be customized according to the preset you want, and you can save it as your default preset. Winamp also has a lock screen mode that easily lets you switch between songs even without unlocking your RingCentral business phone.

Music Volume EQ

Music Volume EQ is the ultimate equalizer you can get for your Android device. It has a media control volume, five-band equalizer, bass boost, virtualizer, and other sound enhancing capabilities. You can also get live readings of your current music volume level and an elaborate volume slider.

      Thanks for finding sometime reading my article, its been awhile since I posted an article here. WinAmp is one of the first Music Apps I used too.

  1. David Croft says

    I heard about this kind of words for music “Google Play Music, Rdio, Winamp and Equalizer”, but “Pandora Internet Radio, SoundCloud, Shazam, and Music Volume EQ” these words are new for me, so thank you for giving me some basic information about it.
    I have little questioned that “Pandora Internet Radio” is that available only for Android based mobile phone?
    I also like “SoundCloud” which we can share to other, it’s really amazing. I like these all music apps.

    Hi Henry, I am a new reader on Techlila. I used to use Spotify but since they removed support for local MP3s I use PlayerPro, not that I use it often as most of the time I still use Spotify. Thanks for sharing.

    Shazam is my favourite. When I first saw it, I thought it was like a magic trick, how it knew the song. I guess that’s why it’s called Shazam! but it’s high praise from me, seeing as I am a magician.

    These apps are really awesome and are very much used in the android these days , but as there is a high competition in today’s android market so its very difficult for any apps developer to make a great foot hold in the battle of survival but these types posts really made a good impact over the users for better understandings and to choose the appropriate post for them. So over all a good post.
    You haven’t mention about VLC ??

    I wonder about the availability of android apps under different category. And yes Music also includes in it. There are number of apps that makes us to utilize our time effectively and efficiently. On that note this post has given out the best android apps.

  15. jeremy schriver says

    You forgot about the greats like spotify and slacker. Both are more of paid apps anymore but can expand your playlists like no other. Also don’t forget to mention root apps like Apollo from Cyanogenmod and DPS Manager. Both are great for local media and controlling the EQ. Also good note to mention that with KitKat version 4.3+ a visual EQ has been built into Android Nativity, so no need for a 3rd part app to control the greatness of how your sound is amplified. Always note if it is an app on the play store it is outdated, just remember all APK’s that aren’t certified by Google will always be better than anything you can download legally case and point DSP manager over 4.3 stock EQ….
