The internet is full of activities that can keep your mind busy, entertain you, or even help you excel in life. A lot of people have free time on their hands right now since we’re in the holiday season. This creates a great opportunity to test new web services and explore your passions. In this article, we’re showcasing the five best free trial services to test right now.

Netflix

Netflix has been really kicking ass in the movie/TV industry in the last two years. With original shows like Narcos, Stranger Things, Lucifer, and many more, Netflix really took the internet by storm. They are giving away the first month for free, which is enough to test the service. You can share the account with up to 4 friends and watch content at the same time. You can further sync movies with friends and create a “Netflix party” if you want to take your fun to the next level.

Google Stadia

Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service targeting a specific niche of gamers and tech enthusiasts. If you’re a casual gamer that likes to play something free like Book of Ra in the browser or on mobile, then you might enjoy Stadia quite a bit. Casino games are great for people that only have access to limited hardware but still want to have fun. They are available on most mobile devices, as well as desktop devices through the browser, making them very open.

Same as casino games, Stadia is a highly accessible service that is available on computers, smartphones, and even TVs. There are no real hardware requirements for running Stadia. You only need a chrome device or browser and a good internet connection to start playing games. This means that you could play the latest PC titles on old computers or even mobile devices. Keep in mind that the higher the video resolution, the better internet you need to actually play.

Spotify

If you’re a music fan then you need Spotify. Listening to music and albums for free on YouTube is a good way of expanding your horizon. However, YouTube is full of ads and has limited mobile usability. Through Spotify, you have access to an endless amount of music without being interrupted by ads or experiencing mobile limitations. The free trial used to be 3 months but it was recently changed to one. Although it’s less, the trial period is still pretty robust.

Skillshare

If you have some time on your hands, it might be a good idea to learn something new. Skillshare is the perfect place to do that since the service provides users with a huge amount of courses and tutorials on pretty much any subject. You can learn whatever you want starting off with a 7-day free trial. However, there are also a lot of other free courses that don’t require any type of membership and even referral links that give you a 2-month free trial.

Kindle Unlimited

On the same note as Skillshare, Kindle Unlimited is an Amazon service perfect if you want to learn some new things. It gives users full access to over 1 million books, magazines, and even audiobooks. Currently, there’s a 2-month free trial offer that’s available until the end of the year. This will enable you to learn about anything, anywhere.
