  • A great website to share and create your own music playlists. Lets anyone discover new interesting music tracks with minimum number of clicks!


  • Does one job of sharing and listening to music playlists, and it does it well. I couldn’t seem to find any negatives here!

In one of my previous blogs, we looked at different playlist creating websites. I mentioned 8tracks.com, which is a great small website. It allows you to share music playlists called mixes, which are made up of eight tracks. That’s not all; it also offers some fantastic features that you can find beneficial when listening to music. I want you to discover how to utilise 8tracks to keep yourself entertained with fantastic music by reading this review.

Whatever it is, no matter how beneficial it is, we always look at how it appears if it is a product! 8tracks features a pleasant and straightforward user interface. It’s simple to use, however it could be complicated for newcomers.

8tracks Website Interface-First Looks

The “feed” button is visible at the top. 8tracks now allows you to follow or be followed by others. As a result, when you share something with them, they will see it, and vice versa. You’ll be prompted if you want to link your G+ or Facebook accounts when you click the Feed button. It will access your profile and determine who of your friends has already signed up for 8tracks, allowing you to follow them. G+ is the same way. This is a useful option if you frequently share music with your friends. This is unimportant to me because I am not such a person.

“Explore” is the second button. What this button might do is self-evident. It allows you to find top-ranking music mixes (playlists) generated by others. The most popular playlists take the top spot. There are also tags such as “best music of 2013,” “holiday,” “new for 2014,” and so on. By clicking on any of them, you’ll be sent to a page with a variety of playlists and new songs to listen to.

8tracks – Explore Mixes

Obviously, we have a search button that allows anyone to look for a specific song or playlist. While listening to music, an easy-to-use social sharing toolbar on the right of each album image allows you to share it with your friends.

Social Sharing

The “Add to collections” button is located just above it. This allows you to save the music and listen to it later. You’ll find two buttons to mark it as “safe” or “unsafe” if you scroll down a little. This is a comparable service to YouTube. Finally, if you want to, you may make a comment about the mix.

Each of the mixes you find on the website is uploaded by someone. They might be active uploaders and if your taste matches theirs, then you have the option to follow them to stay in touch with the uploader or creator.

While playing a certain mix, it keeps playing in a nice little player at the bottom of your screen. This is something I liked and it is least intrusive for me. This player also reminds me of the website called “Grooveshark“, they have a very similar player placement on their site.

Then we arrive at the part where you create your own playlists. This is what the website is famous for, playlist creation! Take your cursor on your profile picture and you will find a drop-down box. Click on the “Create mix” option to create your own mix by uploading music tracks from your computer or by importing from Soundcloud.

Create Mix

Creating a mix is very easy. All you have to do is give in a good name to your mix, a nice description, attractive album art and begin uploading your music tracks. You can definitely add more than 8 tracks! You also have the choice to import music directly from SoundCloud if you are an avid SoundCloud account holder with a lot of music on it.

If you do not want to upload music tracks, then you can look on the right sidebar, and you might be able to find some already uploaded music tracks which you can just drag and drop into your music mix.

Drag And Drop Into Your Playlist (Mix)

After you are done creating your playlist, you can simply publish it and share it with your friends. You do have an option to keep the playlist private.

Now, after learning how to use 8tracks.com we come to the end of this review. I hope you will create some beautiful music playlists for everybody to listen to.
