There is no one definitive music platform. Some major artists want nothing to do with Spotify. Some emerging artists are only on SoundCloud. And your own music collection might include local files that are only yours to listen to. If you want all that music in one place on your Mac, the free desktop app Sylo is on its way to filling a significant music gap.

After you download Sylo to your computer, you will have to sign up for a free account before you can connect your Spotify and SoundCloud accounts. Once you’ve done that, you can log into those services through Sylo. Music in your iTunes library should automatically appear in Sylo without any effort on your part. (Take note that there is no way to reset your password so if you log out of Sylo, make sure to keep note of your username and password.)

In addition to accessing all of your saved playlists and songs in all three platforms, Sylo also offers a Discover tab of its own where you can find and follow all sorts of playlists through YouTube, SoundCloud, and Sylo itself. If you don’t have a Spotify account, you can still listen to Sylo’s Spotify playlists without logging in.

In addition to being available as a free desktop app, it’s also available as a free iOS app, with Android and Windows on the way. There are a few things to keep in mind if you want to use the iOS app.

Without Spotify Premium, you can still listen to playlists through YouTube but that does, however, mean that you’ll play the actual video so, if you’re not on Wi-Fi, it could be a data hog.

Unfortunately, other music platforms like Apple Music are not included, and knowing Apple’s track record, that won’t be happening anytime soon.

    I've been in need of something like this! For a Music-Addict like me, Sylo seems to answer all of my problems with the music platform power struggle. I now have a library that syncs my itunes library that I built growing up, my spotify library of all the classic & released hits, and all my soundcloud playlists and thousands of likes.

    So far, the Desktop app has been spotless and the IOS app is especially smooth. Thank you!!

    Spotify by itself is not so bad
