The social network VK stores a lot of music. Users do not always have the opportunity to go to the social network to listen to songs. They can be downloaded to enjoy their favorite works at any time. In this detailed guide, we’ll help you download music files from VK social network.
How to download music from VK on your phone
As Daria Aksenova writes, Pavel Durov’s social network has always competed in the Russian-speaking segment with sites like Instagram or YouTube. Today VK is not an ordinary social network for communication, but a full-fledged entertainment service with music, videos, photos, chats, groups, and games. Vkontakte has BOOM, a service with a limitless music collection. From this social network, you can download tracks to your Android or iOS mobile device. There are several working ways to do this.
The official Vkontakte app has a function for downloading music tracks for background and offline playback. It can only be used for a fee. The free version of the program has the following limitations:
- absence of background playback;
- the presence of ads between songs;
- online listening only.
A paid monthly subscription allows you to listen to music without ads, in the background, and without an Internet connection.
To download music from the app, proceed as follows:
- Log in to your profile.
- Open the Services tab at the bottom.
- Select Music.
- Find the track you want and open it.
- Download the song using the appropriate button in front of the player buttons.
Bots in Telegram
In the messenger Telegram, you can download music from the social network VK. To do this, you just need to know the right commands – chatbots. Here are the main ones:
- @youaudiobot – allows you to listen to music without restrictions. This bot will help you download songs and listen to them in the background, even without access to the Internet.
- @mymusicbot – also allows you to listen to music without restrictions. It has a command “/mymusic”, which downloads tracks from a personal playlist directly into the cache of the device.
- @vkm_bot – provides a similar toolkit for downloading songs.
- @vkm4bot – in contrast to other bots, helps you get access to the playlist of a particular user (on iOS systems, you must use @vkm4ios).
Each of the bots cab be configured in the same way:
- Go to Telegram.
- Click on search at the top of the interface.
- Enter the name of one of the bots and select it.
- In the chat that appears, click “Start” at the bottom.

The alternative to bots in Telegram are online services that can be used at any time. One of the most popular is KissVK. To download music, follow these steps:
- Go to the site of the service.
- Click on “Sign in and download music”.
- The service will ask you to access your profile. Click “Allow.”
- A list of all the songs in the user’s playlist will open. Select the song you want and download using the appropriate button next to the song.
