I know there are plenty of free alternatives to Spotify or Deezer that offer the same services without costing a penny. A few weeks ago, I mentioned Nuclear, which was quite impressive.
Today, I’m discussing Spotube, a unique offering not based on Electron, which utilizes Spotify’s API for accessing its vast catalog of tracks and playlists, and retrieves music from YouTube. This approach is fairly standard for such tools, but what sets Spotube apart is its ad-free environment, absence of data collection, and compatibility across all operating systems.
With Spotube, you can explore your own Spotify playlists, favorite tracks, music genres, artists, and more. You can also download tracks for offline listening or display song lyrics synchronized with the music for your karaoke nights.
The project is open-source and continually evolving. While there are a few minor bugs, it remains perfectly functional for enjoying the latest hits.
