Music streaming sites have become a staple in today’s world because they allow us to centralize our music and be able to access it from different devices. This is cloud computing at its best for the working man.
Experts have predicted that the use of cloud based services is sure to increase within the next few years so it should come as no surprise that the number of different options for said services has increased.
In 2011 you had a handful of choices when it came to your music streaming sites. Algorithms that introduced you to new artists of your favorite music tastes, have become a must have for any competitive streaming product.
The service itself is not yet as profitable as one would’ve hoped so this means that services that are backed by large parent companies have the best chance for survival.
With more and more people getting faster and cheaper internet access, the market on such services should grow steadily over the next few years. The longer the services are around, the more equipped they will be to accommodate the newbies to the virtual world.
Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play Music are giants in the game. The latter two are backed by two of the world’s largest tech companies. Apple and Google seem to be heavily invested in the future of the industry so it’s safe to say that they’ll be around for quite some time.
Spotify might not have the safety net that the other two do but it does have the market share. It has the largest subscriber base for both free and paid subscription plans so it has the backing of the people.
These giants, however, are just three in a sea of streaming services. The competition is pretty stiff and this is both a good and bad thing for consumers.
The good news is that the sheer amount of competition means that prices will stay low while the perks increase in hopes of attracting and keeping customers. The bad news is that this means there are just too services to choose from.
If you ever feel the need, however, it is possible to switch from one platform to the next. Everyone knows how tedious moving can get so we have created something to cater for those needs. MusConv is a tool that allows you to port from one service to the other with minimum effort.
Our product allows you to move both libraries and playlists with the additional option of creating a CSV file to keep a record of your playlists.
