When Apple Music launches June 30, it will add itself to the list of music streaming companies including Spotify, Play Music, Deezer and Tidal. So here I broke it down simply, the pros and cons of each streaming service. Strangely, Apple prevailed.
Apple Music: $10 per month
Spotify: $10 per month
Google Play Music: $10 per month
Deezer: $10 per month
Tidal: $10 per month
Apple Music: 37 million songs
Spotify: 30 million songs
Google Play Music: 18 million songs
Deezer: 35 million songs
Tidal: 25 million songs
However, it’s important to note that amount of songs vary by country. So while Apple is in the lead, Deezer is a serious contender - and I always root for the underdog.
Apple Music: 100 different countries from June 30
Spotify: 58 countries
Google Play Music: 58 countries
Deezer: 180 countries
Tidal: 35 countries
Apple Music: a 24/7 radio station available to everyone with an Apple ID. Live hosts, news, interviews, etc.
Spotify: simple streaming service that is constantly playing music based on a selected genre or artist, which allows you to skip the track as many times as you want
Google Play Music: simple streaming service that is constantly playing music based on a selected genre or artist, which allows you to skip the track as much as you want
Deezer: Unfortunately, this is the same as Spotify or Google Play Music except you can only skip a certain amount of times with the free version
Tidal: curated playlists that deliver music with relatively little user input
5. Music Discovery
Apple Music: Offers curated playlists to show the user new music and artists, while providing information for each new tune. It builds upon your existing iTunes library as a starting point.
Spotify: The Discover feature is definitely a hit, which allows the user to find new similar artists to their taste.
Google Play Music: Also has a similar artist feature.
Deezer: Also has a similar artists feature, alongside Hear This feature, which gives you personalized music.
Tidal: Similar to Apple, it has curated playlists to get you into new music, but it also regularly updates the lists - so when a series ends, you can find like the soundtrack.
