Really only keeping google music because of price but paying $2 more for Apple music worth it ? I find the app superior plus you get full integration with Apple products ( MacBook and iPhone)

I just came from Spotify and miss a few things but the integration with Apple products is really worth it. It's nice using Siri to lookup new music and the quality of the tracks seems better to me. I'm sure this is something to do with the way spotify normalised tracks. Give AM a trial, your mobile carrier may have one of those 'try for a few months for free' deals.

If it wasn’t for the price difference I would for sure . When you include Netflix and etc. do like the integration tho

If you don't mind Google knowing your habits with music listening, and advertisers knowing this too, then ya ok.

$2 perhaps with AM, but pay $99 a year, $20 difference. How's zat for savings :)

its only the price of two coffees a month. not saying you should change but im amazed 2dollars a month is going to make a difference.

Annoyingly they have just launched YouTube red in the UK. For £11.99 you get add free videos, YouTube audio playing in the background, ability to download videos for offline playback and if I had and android device with Oreo picture in picture. It also gives me free streaming from google music which I can use on my google home mini. Only problem is that I already am subscribed to Apple Music and I need it for the HomePod...
