No more unlimited listening I loved this app, I used it as my primary way of listening to music. But now unless I pay there is only 2 hour a week of listening. There is no way, I use more than that in a day. Especially during finals. I don't want to see 8tracks die, but I'm going to have to get my music somewhere else and I'm guessing a lot of other people will too
Used 8tracks for years I have been an avid listener for years, talking it up to people who haven't ever heard of it. I was surprised this morning to find my music was capped to 30 minutes a week unless I upgrade. I was alright with their addition to ads because hey, we all gotta make money. So now I'm switching to another free streaming service.
Disappointed I have been listening for years. I was cool with the ads because I get it you need to make money but to limit the time you can listen is so not cool. I loved this app for just that that I could listen however long I wanted. If you guys need more money up the ads don't limit the music that was why 8track was different then the rest now it's just another money sucking app. Goodbye my old friend goodbye. 😔
Listening cap and forcing subscription They recently put a listening cap on 8tracks. One that only resets once the week is over and only allows 2 hours of listening per week. The only way around the cap is to buy a monthly($5) or yearly($30) subscription. Two hours is too low of a listening time. People will be lucky to get 2-4 playlists listened to. All in all, I am beyond disappointed and will discontinue use of 8tracks for these super limited changes.
Used to be great This was my absolute favorite app to listen to music a few years ago. When it started getting ads I didn't mind too much but recently they've begun only allowing 30 minutes of free streaming a week unless you pay for a subscription. If I'm going to pay for something I'd rather get Spotify as it's basically the same thing with better features.
Used to be my favorite site / app If you spend hours putting together a playlist someone can only hear it once, worse yet if they forget to like a song the tracks are immediately hidden and then they are not allowed to listen again or see the tracks until the next day. I can just listen to these songs on repeat for free on youtube, why waste my time with this frustration. Before the new 'regulations' & updates 8tracks was a full 5+ stars, now it's just another disappointment. EDIT Found out now you can only listen 2 HOURS a week= uninstall
This is a small update which removes some problematic ads and aims to improve some playback issues in the app. If you are experiencing problems, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
