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.
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 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
Used to be great I've used this app for years and loved it. Now that it sold out it's horrible. The limits on your music suck, the ads that play over music suck. I think it's time to find something else. You had a good run 8tracks
By far the best collection of playlists. I love this app and am an avid user. Love listening to people's playlists and choices. Btw, there's some issue with the notification widget in the recent update. Play/Pause doesn't seem to work as it should. It'd be appreciated if this bug is fixed soon.
Mildly irritated The ads play over the actual music instead of pausing it, which is confusing and annoying. Also the whole 8tracks Plus BS is lowering my appreciation for a music app that I previously enjoyed.
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.
