How Will You Stream Music?
With the reason announcement of Apple Music, the controversy surrounding Spotify payouts and Jay Z’s failure to promote Tidal – Which service are you going to be using? Will you switch to Apple Music? Are you going to stick to MP3s or other local files only?
While most of you are into listening to leaked advance copies, its necessarily not because we don’t want to pay for our music – Its because the patience for our most favorite artists album, are limited. But in the long run, it’s really nice to have a library of music, up for grabs at any time, either on your phone or the computer. And with multiple choices, we want to know what you’re going with!
Which Streaming Service(s) will You Be Using?
- Pandora (1%)
- Rdio (1%)
- Tidal (3%)
- Google Music (7%)
- None, I prefer Vinyl or CD. (10%)
- Apple Music (20%)
- None, I will only be using MP3s (23%)
- Spotify (34%)
Don’t underestimate Google Music! 50 000 MP3 files stored in the cloud for free. Sweet!
It lets me change which albums to have locally on my phone whenever I want, to avoid using data. So great!
Tidal for streaming and Google Music cloud for my own mp3s. Will see about Apple.
Any reason you didn’t include Beats? Maybe there not considered a serious contender?
@jennimandy, Apple bought Beats last year for $3 billion, so it’s going to be part of the Apple Music platform.
You know, I don’t understand why the fu%k didn’t you include Deezer.
I wonder why most of this “what is best for streaming” pools don’t include Deezer.
I use it for 3 years, it includes everything that competitors include + it’s own content (as similar to itunes and spotify) + regional content (I’m from Croatia, for god’s sake, it has everything). It has lyrics support, add on apps (e.g. harmonia mundi’s add on -big library of classical music, etc.)
It is a great software for half the price and an option to import your own mp3’s.
You’ve been mistaken if you tought of it and decided not to include it.
Yeah, I’ve used Deezer for a little bit as it came with my Cricket Wireless. Spotify is the obvious choice here of the above listed, but I personally like Deezer better.
Google Music is great. Use it for both streaming and have uploaded all my purchased music. Also, downloading YouTube music videos is really sweet!
The good thing about Spotify is that you actually don’t pay that much. I made my account like 5 months ago and I paid $0.99 for 3 months and after they ended I had to pay another $0.99 for 3 months more. Spotify is always making promotions.
Haven’t really tried anything else yet other then Spotify, simply because i don’t feel the need to.
Not really a fan of iTunes so Apple is out. Heard good stuff about Deezer though, maybe i will give that a try sometime.
