What is Freegal?
Freegal is a downloadable music service, like iTunes, available to all WPL card holders. No special software is needed to use the service, and there are no digital rights management restrictions.

How much music is on this site?
New music is added daily, but it's safe to say that there are thousands of artists, tens of thousands of albums, and hundreds of thousands of songs. The Freegal site offers access to about 15 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. The content is based upon a license with Sony Music Entertainment. 

How do Freegal downloads and streaming work?
With a WPL card, you may download three songs per week on your personal computer and then you may add the song to your personal music player. In addition, you have access to unlimited streaming.

What’s the difference between streaming and downloading?
Downloading is capturing and keeping the file on a permanent basis. Streaming is accessing the file on a temporary basis, while being connected to the internet. Streaming gives you access to more music. 

How do I download a song on my computer?
When you’ve found a song you want, click on the “Download” link next to your chosen song. At the prompt, select Save and choose where you want to save the song.
Note: Anytime you click on the “Download” link, even if you decide to cancel or play it, the download will count towards your weekly allotment.

Can I download a whole album?
Songs are available on an individual basis only. You can choose, over time, to download all the songs on an album. 

What can I legally do with downloaded or streamed music from Freegal?
The music you access via the Freegal site is for non-commercial purposes only. It comes with a license for personal use only. This means that you cannot duplicate it for others, or play it in public, other than for the intended enjoyment of a normal circle of family or friends. 

How do I get the Freegal Mobile App?

  • If you have an Apple device (iPhone/iPad/iTouch), you will be able to download the Freegal® Music App by doing a search for “Freegal Music” in the App Store.
  • If you have an Android phone or tablet, you will be able to search for “Freegal Music” in the Google Play store. As a precaution, while many Android devices successfully run the Freegal app, not all Android devices are compatible. Barnes & Noble tablet devices are not compatible with the Freegal app.
  • You can download the Freegal app for your Kindle Fire through the Amazon Store. Freegal is supported on Kindle Fire 3rd generation and up.
