The Best Android Music Player  (List Of 15  Best Music Players For Android) 

What I am giving you here is probably the most comprehensive, detailed and to-the-point list/review of Android music players you will find on the Internet. 

Before I show you the apps, here are a few words about the list itself:

  • It contains only the official music apps that you will find on Google Play (and in some cases also in the Amazon Appstore for Android).
  • The description highlights the main features of the app (the most important ones from my point of view) and you will also see the basic information about the price, advertising, average rating and number of downloads. 
  • All the screenshots are real and come from my own Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 with Android 7.0).
  • Under each description you will find direct links to download the app from Google Play and from Amazon Appstore for Android. You can learn more about how to install Amazon apps on Android here (I recommend installing this alternative app store)
  • The apps are not in any special order. You can start studying the list both from the beginning and from the end.
