There are now so many music streaming services to choose from that it has become quite difficult to easily share links to songs. Sure, you can use Apple Music's share option to send a friend a link to a track you like, but that's not really useful if you're not an Apple Music user.

And that's where MusicMatch can help. This free app lets you open a shared music link that you receive on any of your favorite streaming apps. So someone might send you a link to a track on Spotify, but if you're one of the many people who have decided to part ways with that particular streaming service, you can use MusicMatch to open the track on Tidal, Pandora, YouTube Music, or multiple other services. alternatives.

A total of 7 music streaming platforms are now supported, namely Amazon Music, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube Music. In short, MusicMatch offers you a fast, simple and reliable way to open music links in the application of your choice.

We've already looked at the iOS version of MusicMatch, like the web extension, but things have come a long way in just a couple of months. We have already quoted the recently increased number of supported platforms. The addition of YouTube Music, Pandora and Tidal means that every major music streaming platform is now covered, so whichever app you prefer, you should be able to open links there.

Cross-platform sharing

The idea is brilliant, and the implementation is very simple and effective. When someone sends you a link to a track, album, or even an artist on a particular streaming platform, you can simply copy the link to your clipboard.

Launch MusicMatch and the app will open the link in whatever you have set as your preferred music streaming app. It's quick and also painless, and it's much less time consuming than searching for everything you're sent.

The app also lets you create universal links to music you want to share with others. Send a link created by MusicMatch to a friend and they will be able to choose which application they want to use to play the music you want them to listen to.
