It is pretty difficult to journey out into the world and meet someone, who doesn’t enjoy music in any way, shape, or form. Over the decades, we’ve enjoyed the art in various forms— vinyl, cassette tapes, CDs. But, now it’s 2020, and people are taking advantage of various music streaming services to listen to their favorite artists and groups— even discovering new ones!
The one downfall? There are so many choices! How do you know which music streaming service is best for your needs, tastes, and listening behaviors? Well, The Q at Maitland is here to help as always, and we want to give you the scoop on our 3 favorite music streaming services!
As one of the original music streaming services, Spotify has come a long way in the past fourteen years. The Swedish media services provider headquartered in Stockholm hosts an amazing 35 million songs on its ever-expanding platform. On any smartphone device, users can stream playlists and stations free with ads, but if you’re looking for on-demand song selection with no limits, you might want to consider a Premium package for $10 a month for an individual or $15 for up to six family members. Students can enjoy an additional Hulu subscription for only $5 every month. Pretty sweet, huh?
With Apple Music, you get a 3-month trial for free. So, off the bat, the service sounds well-worth the investment. Afterwards, you pay $10 per month, or if you can round up a few family members or friends, up to six people can enjoy their services for only $15 a month—quite the steal, we know. Apple Music has a library of 60 million songs that can be accessed on macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android. Plus, there are plenty of curators that make some awesome playlists for a more hands-free experience.
Easy to use, Pandora also offers plans for $10 a month for individuals and $15 for families. Better yet, they offer a free trial period for both paid plans, so you know what you’re getting for your money well ahead of time. Discounts are also available for students and members of the military. While paid users can stream any song to their heart’s desire –the platform shines brightest in its live radio feature, where users don’t have to stress over song order and execution. Just tell Pandora what artists you want to hear, and let it do its thing.
