Finally downloading MP3 songs from Youtube directly to your Android smartphone or tablet will no longer be a problem thanks to some totally free apps. The latter will allow you to choose the video directly from Youtube and download it as an MP3, ie extracting only the music file.

Sometimes the quality of the MP3 may not be excellent but if you are still curious to try and evaluate yourself the final result you just have to follow the following information.

WarningThis guide was written for a single illustrative purpose, so I remind you that downloading unauthorized copyrighted music is equivalent to committing a crime. For these reasons we will not take any responsibility in case you will use inappropriately the advice we are about to give you.

How to download MP3 music from Youtube

First of all, you should know that it is not possible to download these apps from the Play Store but directly from their official websites. To allow this, you must first activate the support for unknown sources in the settings of your Smartphone, then proceed by pressing Settings -> Security -> Unknown Sources(by activating the lever related to it).

The best apps to use to download MP3 from Youtube on Android are the following:

  • YouTube Downloader :  one of the best apps to download videos and songs, capable of making 192 kbps MP3s. To download it, connect to the official website directly with your Android device and click on the central blue bar of the page written Download latest build, open the downloaded file that you will find between the notifications of your Android (or directly in the Download folder) and proceed by tapping Install. At this point you must accept terms and conditions of use for using the app to proceed. You will have two ways to download music with this app: Connect to the Youtube app, choose the video and press on Share -> Youtube Downloader, or search for the video using the search bar at the top of the downloaded app, tap the thumbnail of the movie and choose the download option. In the end click on Download here to start the download.
  • SnapTube another free app that allows you to download videos from Youtube, Facebook, Instagram by converting them to audio and video files. Connect to the official website with your Android device and tap the Download button to start downloading the app, then open the downloaded file and click on Next -> Install -> Open.  Select Youtube, click on the magnifying glass icon and search for the video to download. Once chosen, you will see a small arrow appear in the lower right-hand corner, by touching it select the MP3 option from the menu that opens.
  • Videoder : It is the simplest and fastest app to use, with the only flaw of not being able to download MP3 over 128 kbps. As always, connect to the official website and press the Download App button open the downloaded file and install. To choose the songs to download, use the search bar at the top, choose the movies and tap on the respective thumbnails by pressing the red button at the bottom right. A new window will open in which you will need to select the MP3 option, continue by pressing twice on Start Download to start the download.
  • TubeMate The last application that I recommend is TubeMate that allows you to search, share and download YouTube videos. To download it, connect to the official site, and among the various options present press on Android Freeware and then on Install App.  Open as always the file downloaded and installed. To download music you only have to use the magnifying glass at the top right of the main screen and type the title of the song to download. Once found, tap the arrow icon at the top right and choose the 128 kbps MP3 Audio optionTo continue, click on Download  (bottom left) and confirm the installation of MP3 Video Converter, ie an additional free app that lets you convert videos downloaded from YouTube into MP3 format. After installing the App, repeat the previous procedure on TubaMate (Audio MP3 128K -> Download -> Confirm) to start the download first and then convert the format to MP3.
