    I wanted to switch from iTunes Match (which should have the same sound quality as Apple Music) to Google Play Music for the 14.000+ Songs in my Music Library. But when I play uploaded files via the Google Play Music app on my iPhone, it sounds notably inferior to Songs I stream from iTunes Match.

    I use the services via WLAN, so quality setting for mobil use in Google Play Music shouldn't have any effect. All of the uploaded audio files came from iTunes. All uploaded Files were in Apples lossless format (ALAC, from CD-Rips). Anybody the same experience?

    I've noticed no noticeable difference between Google Music and Apple Music. I used both frequently back and forth for the last three months. Sound quality was one area where they were equal.
