Have you found a replacement for Google Play Music Manager's Offline Listening options?

I’ve been using Google Play Music with Republic Wireless because it was easy to not use data while listening to audio. You could easily upload your music/books/whatever to google play music, and these could then be downloaded to your phone for offline listening that would not use any data.

But Google Play Music is being discontinued, and its replacement, Youtube Music, requires a monthly subscription for offline listening that I have no desire to pay.

Are there any apps which are free or require a one-time purchase which would allow me to continue to manage playlists and listen to music offline without data use?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks!
