Apple Music and Spotify are some of the world’s most popular music streaming services. They are the leaders in the music streaming market. Very often music lovers ask themselves which of these services is better?
Apple Music and Spotify have almost the same music library in terms of the number of music tracks by artists from around the world. The interface is also similar in functionality. The quality of the songs being played can also be considered the same.
What is the difference between them? First, Spotify can be listened to in the free version. In this case, the user has access to a limited set of options, but the entire media library remains available, and the sound quality of the songs does not get worse. But you can’t download your favorite tracks and listen to them offline. Second, Spotify has a much better music recommendation algorithm. The premium version of Spotify is comparable in price to the Apple Music subscription, but the first month is free of money.
But Apple Music doesn’t have a free version. You can only get music on this music streaming service, if you subscribe. But the free version will last for three months.
Apple Music takes precedence in listening to its own music, which the subscriber collects in their personal media library. Apple Music can store up to 100,000 tracks. Spotify can store up only 10,000 songs.
Apple Music can be controlled via iTunes, while Spotify is only in the browser. You can set the Apple Music song as an alarm clock ringtone. You can’t do that on Spotify.
To answer the question of which of the services is better, you can install both and use them for a while. Then you can decide for yourself which of the advantages and disadvantages of Apple Music and Spotify are most important to you.
