Received an alert that my personal information was comprised on this site. Beware.
i’ve been using 8tracks since 2013/2014, and i completely loved the service then! i was a daily user for years, and i’ve been along for the ride in terms of updates, the introduction of subscriptions, etc. what really turned me off was/is that ads have begun to play on your own playlists. if the music is my own, that i literally uploaded myself, why do i need to listen to ads to access it?? ad placement is so heavy-handed on others’ playlists that i wasn’t listening to them, and now that that’s been extended to my own content i don’t use the service at all except to find song titles to listen to them elsewhere. 8tracks will always have a place in my heart, but it just isn’t worth it anymore :(
they hacked my email
These creeps had a data breach of passwords and email addresses and failed to ever notify me. My information was stolen from 8 Tracks due to irresponsible lack of security AND THEY NEVER TOLD ME. I just discovered this today from a different credit source. Millions of people’s information was taken and any of you could be sharing your password and email with the thieves and not even know it. There are ways to find out what these scammers won’t tell you. Stay away from 8 tracks totally. The app is not safe and your data has been given or stolen. Look online as there are sites that will tell you by email address if it’s been compromised.
Please fix this problem. Thank you.
I love you 8tracks, I pay for a subscription but am not able to use it because your app won’t launch. White screen with blue bar that won’t say anything other than, “Try Again”. Frustrating.
It be nice to create playlists on the app/mobile website and use songs from YouTube
this totally works for playing music but its a huge bother to upload music, i went to the help bar and the instructions on how are so confusing like ??? i was able to upload 3 songs by using their ‘search tracks’ but they dont have any songs i like and i cant figure out how to upload :( (update: my computer crashed because of this)
I’ve been a long time user/member of 8tracks and have loved a lot of the music on there! My only big issue is as of recent, I would have to hit play after EVERY song and that’s an issue because I use this app to help me sleep. I’ve reported it to Support or “Chris” twice and have gotten the same “ reinstall the app or restart your phone” script email in reply. I really love this app but might not be using it for much longer if the playback issue isn’t resolved soon.
The most recent updates have introduced new bugs into the app. The songs no longer auto play, so I have to go into the app and hit play each time. This unfortunately makes the app basically unusable, since I want the music to seamlessly play in the background without interruption. Even though I’ve had an annual subscription for a while, 8tracks auto cancelled it instead of auto renewing it. Having to set that up again is annoying. The ads are super buggy! The app plays the audio for the ad over the music, so that both are playing at once. Also, the layout for the ad is super messy and most of the time there is no ad image or video at all. I won’t be renewing my subscription until the bugs are fixed!
