I love 8tracks, but the app isn't so great. I only recently discovered 8tracks, and I love that I can listen to music I can't really listen to on other streaming sites like Pandora and Spotify. However, I feel that the app needs a lot of work. I often can't pause music, or unpause it, without it glitching. Also, there are a lot of limits in the app as compared to the full site. For example, I would like to be able to add play lists to my collection in the app, or search specific users or terms. Overall though, it works well enough, and I'm satisfied.
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 to love 8tracks. Listen, I get it. Streaming is pretty cashless in the long run. It's understandable, you're a business. But the fact of the matter is, you don't get money out of supporters by reducing what they can do without cash. That is how you drive out a fanbase. I was even considering getting a plus account until you decided to shove limits down our throats...and only an hour of streaming a week? Come on, I did that in a night. I think I'll take my playlists elsewhere.
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.
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 email@example.com.
