Top Features Of A Popular And Great Music App

Music apps are everywhere but you don’t hear about all of them because not all of them make it to the limelight. In order to get the public’s attention, you need to implement a series of features that bring true value to the way the user is already enjoying music. There are many ways in which you can take an experienced music consumer and captivate their curiosity, from unique music app features to things like converting videos into youtube mp3 files.

For example, the converter service lets its users take YouTube video links and convert the associated video into an audio file. That’s something that people will always appreciate and it’s the kind of raw utility a good music app needs. With that said, let’s take a look at the top features a good music app should have.

Music lovers want more than just another music player. They want an app that understands their love for music and helps develop it even more. A great way of doing this is by providing valuable information, music history and trivia related to the artist, album or track that is playing currently. Sure, that means a lot of extra work for the development team, but no one said being high quality was easy.


People love being able to customize their apps, and music apps make no exception. Giving the app’s users the ability to choose simple things like the app’s background color, or use custom images can make a world of difference. Also, as far as music library customization goes, it’s best to have as many options as possible regarding how libraries can be organized and stored. Giving users plenty of options keeps the app fresh and it keeps people interested.

Track Recognition

Shazam is a great example of an app that people will always use because it’s incredibly useful. It’s also very simple to use, which is a big plus. Having such a feature incorporated into a music app will make said app a prime candidate for success.  Now, the app doesn’t just play music, it discovers music as well, making it two times as useful.

News/Updates Section

This would be a dedicated feature within the app that keeps track of all the latest releases in music. The newest albums and the latest news related to popular artists can all be discovered here, and it could even contain a tool to alert people or about things related to their personal music tastes, which brings us to the next must-have feature.

Suggestions In The Music App

People like being able to listen to their own music, but they love being able to discover brand new music as well. Using the right algorithms and putting the right kind of music buffs behind the project, you can create a music app that will also suggest new artists, tracks, and albums to people, based on their past sessions, what they’re currently listening to, and things like that.

This is by no means a revolutionary concept, but it is omitted often enough from music apps that whenever we see it, we can’t help but gasp at the sheer possibilities that we know have just been opened for us.
