Freegal Music Update

Regular users of our Freegal Music service may have noticed that the Freegal website looks a little different today. Freegal has launched a number of new updates, including:

  • A brand-new look as well as an updated search engine
  • More content from your favorite artists, with millions of songs available
  • Browse the new website at without logging in, and send links to individual songs to your friends (login still required to download songs)
  • Download your favorite music videos as well as song files (note that a video will count as 2 of your 3 allotted downloads for the week)
  • Create a wishlist of songs you may want to download in the future
  • Backup songs downloaded from the Freegal app into iTunes
  • Delete songs from the Freegal app to save memory on your mobile device

    I use Freegal every week. This update is not an improvement. I use Windows 7 and Firefox. Took longer to where I wanted to go, could not see as much on the screen at one time, and only 1 out of 3 downloads were successful on the first try.

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re having problems with the new site, Carl. Did the unsuccessful downloads give you any sort of error message that I can pass along to the tech support team at Freegal?
