A smartphone doesn’t truly take on your personality until it is complemented with your personal library of easily accessible music. Here are some great music apps that are sure to help you get into the groove.
This is usually the first go-to app for many music lovers. Users have the option of using an ad-supported free version, or upgrading to premium. Premium users have ad-free play, unlimited skips, offline listening, and access to higher fidelity audio files. Whichever version you choose, all users have access to an unprecedented variety of music, from the newest releases to classic gems, thanks to Spotify’s constantly updated supply of millions of songs. Many new and upcoming album releases are first available on this platform. Spotify also offers ready-made playlists compiled by music fans and industry experts as well as personalized options, like the “Discovery Weekly” playlist, customized to your unique listening taste. A clean user interface allows for quick and bloat-free searching, browsing and discovering.
Brilliantly simple, Apple Music is one of the best ways to indulge in new musical experiences. Offering the same familiar and comfortable yet timeless feel of iTunes, this platform provides a multi-faceted and rich user experience. Including specialized radio stations, original TV shows, movies, expertly crafted playlists and, of course, endless ad-free streaming of the entire iTunes music archive, you really can opt to enroll in an individual, family, or student membership. Even better, Apple is currently providing all first-time users of the service with three months for free.
Google Play Music
Offering a free or subscription-based model, Google Play Music remains a highly respected music app for any smartphone keen on exhibiting a little character. Much of the allure lies within GPM’s incredible selection of playlists that vary by day, possibly some of the most meticulously compiled and thoughtful collections of songs on any streaming service. Offering specially-themed playlists for precise moods, activities, or even times of the day or year (what’s more specific than “late Thursday night summer stargazing”?), this app and subsequent streaming service caters to those who are adventurous and enjoy discovering new songs. In addition, GPM also offers a wide range of songs and albums available for purchase, with many of them available for discounted prices.
