Yea! That discover feature is SO good, wish apple had it on their software.TOTALLY agree. iTunes puts some insane album art on my songs, I'm like whaaaa. And the interface of Spotify is just so attractive plus I love all the playlists I can discover
[doublepost=1547061929][/doublepost]I like listening to techno while I workout. Searched "techno workout" in Spotify and bam
Didn't Taylor swift have to make a big song and dance to get Apple to pay fair prices?Because Spotify is a dishonest company that exploits musicians by paying them next to nothing...
I don't buy a lot of music now but in the past I did. I had over 2,000 CDs that I gave away to charity after I got my first homepod as I want to De-clutter my house. I've been buying CDs since 1995 and before that I had cassettes.Clearing space won't make your phone any faster, but it could save you money next time you buy a new one.
Speaking of money, how much do you spend buying music? I was surprised to find I've bought an average of 12 albums per year, giving me around 6,000 songs in total in the quarter century I've been buying music. For about the same cost, I could have access to tens of millions!
Many of those I've bought I no longer listen to, as my tastes have changed, and some turned out to have one amazing single, and 10 tracks of filler. Streaming looks better and better the more I look at it! I got a voucher for six months of Deezer with my Samsung soundbar, I really ought to activate it.
Yea that's the main thing I see as a downside to Spotify, you can do local songs in Spotify as well, but it's quite basic and not as good as iTunes.I also like the fact that everything is done in one app with Apple music. So I have all of my own music and Apple music in the same place.
Source? Before settling on Apple Music after using Spotify for years. I used Apple Music on and off since it came and went maybe a year without a subscription. When I came back all the songs I had added were still there.Yea that's the main thing I see as a downside to Spotify, you can do local songs in Spotify as well, but it's quite basic and not as good as iTunes.
One thing I'm deeply troubled by Apple music though is that lets say you start building your curated playlists, years of curated songs, the day you unsubscribe for whatever reason, your playlists are gone. With Spotify it keeps them intact even if you cancel premium, and you can still access via the free tier.
Also Spotify has such a great community that there is a ton of user-made playlists, that's one of the biggest reasons Spotify is so far ahead of Apple Music, the discoverability of new songs is great.
After ending subscription, Apple keep data for 90 days, if you don't subscribe back it gets deleted, see link below:Source? Before settling on Apple Music after using Spotify for years.

I’m on a family subscription and I wasn’t a fan of the whole purchase sharing thing. When other family members had their own iCloud storage subscriptions or purchased apps, I would be charged despite them having their own payment info on their accounts.Just curious what prompted you to switch?
I second this. I got 6 months of free Apple Music through my Verizon plan and have been trying to tune some radio stations and I just can't seem to find anything good on there compared to my Pandora stations. I had originally planned on cancelling my Pandora subscription and sticking with Apple Music but I always find myself going back after being disappointed by AM.I have Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora. Pandora is by far the best radio.
I’ve had many complaints about that family sharing situation. Everyone has their own money and should pay for what they like, not fair to be “responsible” for others peoples purchases.I’m on a family subscription and I wasn’t a fan of the whole purchase sharing thing.

That caused me to look into Spotify. I don’t need to see what apps or subs others are purchasing. It’s not my business.
I prefer the interface with Spotify now and the playlists they offer to discover new music weekly.
