Dear Valued Customer,

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the all-new Freegal Music Service on April 4, 2018. This launch is the by-product of 18 months of work which has also included the feedback of you and your patrons/customers.

On April 4, the Freegal Music Site will be down for approximately 10 hours (12:00 AM EDT - 10:00 AM EDT). When it is back up, there will be an entirely new product and new apps for the iOS and Google stores. Patrons/customers will be able to use their existing credentials, and all their playlists and stored music will be preserved. Patrons/customers will receive their customary notification from the stores that an update is ready, and those that allow automatic updates will have a seamless experience. New FAQs and a video tutorial will guide the end users through the site.

The highlights of the new service include:

  • A completely new set of mobile apps that take advantage of new technology to allow the same robust website experience in the palm of the patron’s/customer’s hand. This is what the future of our service looks like – everything on the phone. Great discovery, great functionality and an intuitive and clean interface.
  • An emphasis on curated music. We know that of our almost 3 million users, 50% of them come to the site looking to discover music rather than finding something specific. To that end, we now have over 100 playlists to meet every mood or whim. New lists will be published weekly, and they are pleasingly displayed on the site and the apps.
  • A new functionality that will allow libraries to show off their music curation abilities and help create a community of music lovers in their service area. Patrons will be able to create playlists and share them with the library. Libraries can edit and publish them on their own Freegal Music site and also create their own playlists from scratch.

  • A simple, clean and modern new interface to help the patrons/customers quickly explore the breadth and depth of our content base, which is now 15 million tracks and includes music videos and audiobooks.

The all new Freegal will still include:

  • New content every day. Our worldwide catalog contains 15 million songs from more than 30,000 music labels that originate in over 100 countries.


It is with great anticipation and excitement that we announce this launch. We look forward to your feedback.

-The Freegal Music Team
