Sharing links for songs isn’t convenient anymore as the number of music streaming services continue to grow. However, currently, there are no alternative integrated ways to overcome this issue either. Hence, we present you an Android app called “Musiclink” that simplifies the situation to some level.
The concept of MusicLink is quite straightforward – Whenever your friend sends a music link through any medium, MusicLink lets you open it in the streaming service of your choice. For instance, if you receive an Apple Music link, this app allows you locate the same entry on Google Play Music or Spotify. Unlike what I was anticipating, it does work every time despite my odd choices for testing it.
Furthermore, MusicLink makes it easier to share tunes in a group chat as well. You can create a universal URL through the web app and send that to others. Whenever the recipient tries to open it, they will be redirected to their preferred streaming service on the phone. During the time of writing this article, MusicLink supported a bunch of leading platforms including Apple Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube, and Deezer.
Setting up MusicLink is a tedious process, though. First, you need to head over to settings, then apps/applications, and select the preferred streaming app. Tap “open by default” and set “ask every time” from the dropdown. If your Android phone is running Lollipop (5.0) or older, there should be an option for “Clear defaults” instead.
MusicLink is entirely free of cost and you can download it from this link. Let us know in the comments section if you are having trouble setting it up.
