Spotify is a streaming music platform, available on PC and in iPhone (iOS) and Android applications.

In its free version, the service lets you search for music, listen for free, and make playlists, as well as see the songs your friends are listening to.

There are over 30 million songs available from different countries and rhythms. The service also has several playlists ready and, through machine learning, suggests content based on your tastes and the music you listen to. It's a good platform for meeting new artists and songs, as well as having a modern and intuitive interface. Login can be done with a signup or by syncing to Facebook or Google accounts.
One of the biggest disadvantages of Spotify's free option is the advertisements played between songs. In the free version it is also not possible to download the songs and there is a limit number of six times per hour to skip tracks in a playlist. There are also no options for accompanying song lyrics, as in other services.

Deezer is also a streaming music platform, available for desktop and for phones and tablets running Android and iOS systems. As with Spotify, in the free version of Deezer you can register or link your account with Facebook or Google and start listening. When you start a new account, the service asks you some questions to understand your music style and may give some pointers.
In Deezer you can search by artist or track. The service also offers the playlist creation tool, but features free version advertisements between one song and another. In the free version there is also a limit of songs that can be skipped and it is not possible to download the songs to listen offline.

Listen to Music is a website that lets you listen to music for free on the Internet. It is only available in web version and no registration is required to enter. Unlike the other options mentioned, Listening Music is not a conventional streaming platform. She uses YouTube videos to play the tracks.
Its differential is the interface, the tool to create playlists and the possibility to see the lyrics of the songs while listening. Listening Music has no mobile version and does not have a sophisticated system of recommendations like Spotify and Deezer. However, it has ready-made playlists and a very intuitive use.

The famous site of lyrics and translations also has free music service. The Vagalume.fm features over 100 radio stations with music selections based on the most liked tracks by users of the site. In addition to the web version, it is available for mobile devices with iOS and Android. The great advantage of the service is that it has no advertisements. You can search for specific songs or artists and play the tracks.
Another advantage is that it displays the lyrics of the songs and also the translations. The disadvantage of the platform is that, so far, it does not allow the creation of custom playlists. It is possible, however, to listen to the selections of songs pre-selected by the site, through its various radios, segmented in different musical styles.
