Spotify is right now one of the most popular music streaming services which has a very good quality of sound with a lot of big music libraries of over 40 millions tracks. And a lot of music you can find on spotify. Not only music but also podcasts are available on Spotify. And you can access Spotify on any devices such as smartphone, computer, smart TV or any other devices that support Spotify. You can listen to it online or you can also download it to listen to it offline anywhere or anytime you want.
We can also share music with your friends and family if you connected your Spotify account to your facebook account.
But the things That bother the user are
- No lyrical Feature: Some user wants to read and understand the meaning of the lyrics of their favorite songs
- Expensive: Spotify is free but for the free user some features such as Unlimited Skip and Join Radio are not available for free users, you have to pay every month to be a premium user which is 9.99$ per month and 4.99 $ per month for students.
- Not available for all countries: Not everyone can access Spotify. Spotify has a limited number of countries that can access it.
- Ads: For free user Advertisements can interrupt between your favorite song or podcast.
Apple Music is a music streaming service created by Apple specifically for IOS users. It is similar to spotify unlike spotify it available for almost every country and it also comes with Lyrical Feature. The best thing about it is that it comes with a three months free trial.

It sounds expensive but it also has an Apple Music Family Plan that allows you to share your account with your friend or family with up to five people and give them a personal account in just 14.99$ per month.But if you are a student Apple also give you a discount with just 4.99 $ per month. But for some countries, for Example: Cambodia . The Student Plan is only 1.49$.
All of these plans have no Ads.
But some things about Apple music that are bad for users are that All downloaded music is locked with Apple FairPlay. If you switch your account or your account’s country you can’t listen to it anymore, it even deletes our music.
Most of us have already used Youtube Before. But Youtube just released their new App “YouTube Music” Which is a music streaming service that updates from Youtube but focuses more on Music. Allow users to browse songs and music on Youtube based on Playlist and genre. The best thing on Smartphones that Youtube Music has and Youtube doesn’t have is that we can minimize the app and do something else and the song still plays, The other thing is Youtube music has no ads but it will cost user 9.99 $ per month.
