Sort and play music on your PC with the brilliant MusicBee
MusicBee is simple, it won’t slow down your computer, and it’ll get your collection perfectly organised
If you’ve been collecting digital music for a while, there’s a good chance it’s not in the best order. Filenames will be a mess, tags will probably be even messier, and finding the track you want likely takes longer than listening to the song itself. And that’s where MusicBee can help.
It’s a fantastic free music player with an easy-to-use interface and a very light footprint, meaning it shouldn’t slow your computer down, but its organisational features are where it really shines.
It can pull in music from around your PC, intelligently tag your tracks, and even grab album art, lyrics, and other data from around the web, turning your ragtag collection of MP3s into so much more.
MusicBee can also stream music, and handle podcasts. Forget Windows Media Player or Groove Music – if you really want to make the most of your locally stored tunes, then MusicBee is the app that you’ve been waiting for.
The transport bar is where you control what’s playing. Don’t forget to rate your tracks using the stars to the right.
The left column can show all sorts of content. To switch to a different view – album, artist, and so on – click its title.
Tucked away in the top-left corner of the window. If you need to do something, check here first.
Once you’ve filtered your tunes using the left column, your selection will appear here – double-click anything to play it.
If you have a large library, the search box is essential. Type an artist, track or album name to find it instantly.
Lists tracks that have been queued up to play. Use drag and drop to add items or change the order.
