Our lives have changed drastically since covid-19 has hit us hard. The lockdown, quarantine, fear and boredom makes us feel helpless. However, there have been a few initiatives by companies that may help us keep ourselves occupied.
These include free e-books, resources and music. In this article, we would be discussing about the companies that have given free music access.
Some websites had given music for free already, but now many more have given free access for limited periods.
We have curated the list of these:
