I think music is something that is enjoyed by almost everyone. Almost everyone I know likes some kind of music, whether it be contemporary, pop, Christian, indie or country. So, I think most everyone would agree that music is pretty cool. However, what I see a lot of people arguing over is the best way to get music. There are a large variety of music services, some of which have similar features but vary in cost. In this digital age, we live in gone are the days of carrying around CDs. With these streaming apps, we have access to almost any song in the world all within one app.
One of the more popular music providers I have seen would be Apple Music. Apple Music has three plans to choose from; a student plan for $4.99 a month, an individual plan for $9.99 a month, and. Family plan for 14.99 a month that can include up to 6 people. Apple Music allows you to listen to a very large variety of songs with no adds. It also allows you to listen offline and allows you to download songs to your personal library (Apple Music).
Spotify is also popular, Spotify offers four account options. The first one is free, but you are required to listen to advertisements. There is also a student version which also cost $4.99 a month. However, you also get Hulu included. Spotify also has individual plans for $9.99 a month and family plans for up to 6 people for $14.99 a month. Spotify also has a massive library of songs that you can play ad-free and with unlimited skips and no advertisements. Spotify also allows you to download music so you can listen offline (Spotify).
Another music streaming service is Pandora, Pandora also offers a free version that requires you to listen to advertisements. They also have a plan called “Pandora Plus”, which includes no advertisements and unlimited skips. They also offer a “Pandora Premium” plan for $9.99 a month with all the same features. However, this plan allows you also to search and play any song as well as create playlists (Pandora).
Music is pretty awesome almost everyone has some genre of music they like. And in this age we live in, we have multiple options as to how we listen to music. Of course, the ones mentioned here are not the only ones, and pricing and plans do differ. We all have the option to have access to a wide variety of music.
