Streaming music

Postby Freshmaker » Tue Mar 31, 2015 12:18 pm

Question.

I'm currently using Spotify as my streaming-provider, but there are several others on the market.

I also use Googles service (Play Music), but just for my own mp3's etc, due to it's free cloud-based system, where you can upload your mp3's and access from wherever. Google also gives the opportunity to subscribe, and you'll get "millions of songs" availlable. Now, do you guys know about the pro vs con between these services?

I started using Spotify this week, and have previously used Google play.
Both have been disappointing, I've found it hard to organise music the way I want. It's probably just a matter of getting used to them but I seem to lack the energy to try.
I've gone back to using winamp and a bunch of MP3s :) Win!

Mp3s are out. I'm not going back. I'm very pleased with the streaming-option.
I organize my music perfectly in Spotify, and very often I use the "radio" or "browse" functions, wich gives new artists based on what I usually listen to, etc.

So, my basic question is wether there's a major difference in what music is availlable through the different providers.
