Best Music Players For Android 

We are going to provide you with 15+ music players that you can download on Android from the Google Play store. They are high quality and extremely good at performance and compatibility, you should pick whichever suits you the best:

1. Spotify

Spotify is the most famous music player app and it has tons of reasons for being on top. I love this app to high extremes; the app has all the features that a good music player must-have. Once you start using this app for listening to your music there is no going back, this app can never fail you.

Spotify has a huge library for songs belonging to every genre and language, be it BTS, or Punjabi, Spotify has got everything for everyone. Also, do not forget Spotify has many podcasts promoting daily affirmations and positivity and people can hear news on the go.

There’s one more feature that I love and it is that this app features many playlists depending on the mood and the most listened to.

2. Deezer

Just in case, if you don’t like Spotify much and have some complaints then, you might want to try Deezer. It is another very versatile music player app and could be considered as an alternative for high-end music player apps such as Youtube music and Apple music.

It has a premium version too like Spotify, it has a huge library of songs and some really good podcasts to choose from. You should try out Deezer!

3. Musixmatch

Musixmatch is one of the best music players for Android when it comes to playing locally downloaded songs on your device. The app provides live lyrics to whatever you are listening and this makes it different from any other app.

Most people like to see lyrics while they are listening to music especially musicians, and for them, it is the most convenient app. You can also use this app to display live lyrics on other music apps such as Spotify or Youtube music.

4. Music Player Go

Now, let us talk about some of the local Android music players. So, Music Player Go is an amazing local music player, it is minimal but yet full of subtle features that you will find attractive. This player is very simple but provides great performance, it has a very normal and basic interface but has numerous settings.

Some of the settings involve audio focus, headset management, and also has three themes to select from i.e. dark, light, and automatic. Also, you can hide songs or playlists that you don’t want to play while using the shuffle setting on the app.

5. Poweramp Music Player

Let us talk about this powerful music player app which is the Poweramp Music player. You can play music files belong to any format through this app, it has an inbuilt 10 band optimized graphical equalizer. One of the key features includes its treble adjustment, stereo expansion, tempo control, balance, and many more. And you must know that this Android music player offers support for android auto, Google Assistant, and Chromecast.

Many people enjoy super high volume for their music and on this player, you can select the “Speaker(loud)” option on your phone to increase the volume. However, it is not a free music player, users have to pay a certain amount to be able to use this app but the app offers a 15-day free trial that you can use before committing.


This is one of the OGs when it comes to the best music players for Android. It doesn’t have its music library because it is kind of old school, as mentioned already! But we all know the older the better, the player supports various file formats and offers supports for android auto and custom Car PCs.

It has three themes as well, and you can custom themes if you like, and it has an awesome ability to cross-fade tracks and the ability to mix multi-channel audio files to stereo.

7. Omnia Music Player

This music player is considered to be a sister application to the Pulsar music player which we will talk about later. It is an amazing and decent-looking music player with a strong grasp of music playback. The app offers support for Google cast and Android auto, it is packed with some awesome playlists.

Just like the above music players, this app has themes as well but for further theming you will have to pay $2.99, it is a one-time payment which is considered great. You should try it out once!

8. Pulsar Music Player

Now if you are someone who likes to be aesthetic and creative with the apps and have color schemes. This is just the app for you, this music player offers a highly customized interface to its users. However, the material design of this app looks very similar to Omnia as they are related but the Pulsar Music player has many themes if you pay $1.99 for its pro version.

Once you unlock its pro version, you will be provided a lot more presets and a bass booster. You are allowed to customize all the themes, also the app offers Google cast and Android Auto support. Some of its other features include its smart playlists and the lyrics display.

9. VLC Media Player

Let us talk about another OG in the race of several high-end music players. Many of you still think that VLC is used to play videos and audios and everyone knows it is one of the best music players for Windows. But what many are unaware about is that this app is decently good for Android as well.

I know it doesn’t look aesthetic and all but trust me when it comes to performance and compatibility with various file formats, it’s one of the best. VLC scans all the locally downloaded music on your device and then, sorts it under different categories.

10. Simple Music Player

As its name suggests, this app is pretty decent and simple with the sort of interface it offers and the local music playback. Users can customize the colors, it has several presets and playlists, and also, it has a search button that makes it easier for users to find exactly what they are looking for in no time.

Now, the cheery on the cake is that this app is ad-free, people long to hear this. But there’s a downside as well, unlike other music players it doesn’t offer Google cast support and thus, you won’t be able to play music from this app over your smart speakers.
