Do You Believe that Windows 10 Mobile Will Download Music Free?

Windows 10 Mobile

Many Windows users prefer Google music for personally enjoyment. It allows streaming the entire home music library to Windows phone. But if you don't have a large library of music at home, it is not so useful. Downloading free music to Windows 10 Mobile makes playback more convenient even you don't have wireless network connection. It would be a good way to play music offline on the go.

However, Windows phone (10 included) has blocked the download of MP3 music files from Internet Explorer (and likely the new Spartan browser). It is expensive and troublesome to purchase audios the through Zune only when it's available. To avoid such, people download some apps only to find that they won't download songs from many websites sometimes. Besides, most of the little-know music sites are not so safe and clean. In such cases, the best alternative is to download music videos from YouTube for playing on Windows 10 Mobile with the help of a YouTube video downloader and converter.
