Almost all of my music is recorded/downloaded livestreams, and the few random songs I want (so far less than 100) I just download from YouTube. Everything is on my computer, and because my phone (64 GB) is almost full (and because I'm to lazy to convert them to mp3 or m4a :P) not everything is on my phone, just the best ones. In fact, I've recorded and/or downloaded these every week (that they were there) for the past more than 5 years, but haven't heard anything (apart from when live) from 2018 or 2019 yet... still a lot to go through and sort (gigabytes upon gigabytes), but no time and if time effort... :P

 

Anyways, up until now I've always been really happy with these livestreams. I use VLC on my computer, and whichever music app isn't broken on my phone (I've gone through 5 or so by now...). As I will go to university in a month, my music listening time will likely increase (travel), so I'll probably need to sort out the newer streams to keep things new. :P Fortunately I'll likely have a new phone by then too (256 GB), so I should have some more space. :)

 

I have never used a (paid) streaming service, except obviously Twitch, and sometimes YouTube for the regular stuff. Paying is bleh imo, and even if I had spotify I wouldn't know which songs to listen to. :P

I like being the exception to the rule again: I don't listen to music, streaming or otherwise.

Apple Music >>>>>> Spotify. Sorry guys. Theres also no question of premium vs free music services when it comes to annoying ads, or choice. 

I'd probably use Apple Music if the iTunes client didn't suck ass on Windows.

hopefully its getting an overhaul like the Apple Music app. 

I guess at some point it will. Makes zero sense for Apple to go on supporting iTunes on Win. Even android has the  music app.

Spotify Premium + 600GB cd collection

 

Also have Google with YouTube Premium but barely use it outside of backuping uses.

I use Google Play Music. Been trying to move away from it considering the inevitable trainwreck that's gonna be YouTube Music, but it's extremely difficult. Tried moving my entire library over to Spotify a few weeks ago and didn't realise it maxed out at 10k songs, which is only about half my library.

WTF only 10k? 

 

Google Play has 100k limit.

Yeah, it's pretty pathetic. That, and the fact that I can't upload my local library, which has a lot of obscure stuff that can't be found on any streaming service, makes it really difficult to move away from GPM.

That's the tricky part, isn't it?  iTunes beats Spotify with a 100,000-song limit, but iTunes Match (the service that you'd want to cover your local library) is, of course, limited to whatever songs are available on the iTunes Store.

I use the spotify browser app in firefox on my pc (for adblock), contolled by the desktop app (for the better UI).   It's basically free premium without the audio quality bump.  Mobile still sucks tho.

I've used Youtube for all my music needs for the past 10 or so years. I did sign up for Spotify this week but haven't felt the need to actually use it.

I bounce around a lot between services. I think they all have strengths and weaknesses. 

 

Slacker Radio: This was the first streaming service I used. Pandora at the time just wasn't that good. Its been bought out by a company who changed it so much that I will never go back.

 

Pandora: Pandora has 5-6 stations that are perfect. After 10 years of thumbs down and up, they have a very good idea of what I like and do a great job of it. The downside is that There is hardly any new music on my stations. They don't stray very far from my thumbs ups. I love it though for just turning it on and listening to music. Not having to search for what I want to listen to is nice. Sound quality is also a huge negative. Its terrible.

 

Spotify: I love the service but hate the interface. I hate how hard it is to find music in my library. I click on library and its just a mess of playlists, albums, and artists. I love the weekly discovery playlist. Out of the 20 or so songs on it every week, I find 3-5 that I end up liking a lot. 

 

Apple Music: I like the selection better than Spotify. I hate that they don't account for song versions though. For instance I could be listening to a Red Hot Chili Peppers album. For some random reason, it will play the live version of a song instead of what is supposed to be on the album. I also CANNOT STAND that it screws with my local music library. Replacing songs for whatever reason.

Apple Music

 

I paid 0.99$ per month on a student subscribtion. While Spotify may have better playlist recommendation, I started to notice they remove some of my favorite songs in the library, so I simply move back to Apple Music on all my devices (Android included)

Apple Music is included in my cell plan, so I use that. Prior to that I used Spotify, which I paid for at student discount pricing.

 

IMO, Apple Music is better. The app is more stable on all devices, and does a lot less algorithmic BS to pick songs. I actually found a lot of songs from my favorite artists that I never heard on Spotify.

What is the difference between Spotify Free and Paid beside no ads for paid? 

Paid version also allows you to select tracks rather than just shuffle.
