Despite the fact that Apple Music ships natively on all of Apple’s iPhones and iPads, many users still flock to Spotify as their go-to media streaming service.
One thing users have noticed as of late is that Spotify has been investing heavily in the podcast space despite originally being a music streaming platform. This is wonderful news for podcast listeners, but to those who lack interest in podcasts, it’s nothing but extra clutter in an otherwise great app.
There is no denying that, despite relying on algorithms, one of the primary reasons to use Spotify is its personalized experience. The service is very good at finding what listeners like to listen to, both in terms of artists they already follow and new ones. And now Spotify is launching a handful of new personalization tools.
Many media streaming apps like Spotify provide a like button so that you can tell the app you like what you hear. The app then tries to curate playback based on the feedback you give it.
I’ve enjoy the ability to enhance music playback in this way, as it helps with artist discovery. But it frustrates me that you need to physically be in the Spotify app to like a song, which calls for a multitasking and gesture shenanigans even when you’re trying to get something done in another app.
At long last, Spotify is refreshing its app for the Apple Watch with a new feature allowing you to download your favorite songs, playlists and podcasts to the device for offline listening.
At the beginning of this month it was rumored that Apple was planning to launch a new HiFi, or lossless audio, option for Apple Music in the near future. And now it looks like the Android version of Apple Music may be confirming just as much.
Listening to music is a popular activity among iPhone owners, but regardless of what music streaming app you use to jam out to your favorite tunes, one thing is certain: the Now Playing interface can be downright boring.
MusicBackground is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Ethan Whited that hopes to solve this longstanding problem by incorporating eye-catching background effects, and it does this for the Now Playing interfaces in the Apple Music app, Spotify Music app, Tidal app, and even those found in Control Center and on the Lock Screen.
Spotify changed the library experience for its listeners quite some time ago. However, the streaming service has just announced another major change that may be a more welcomed one.
Spotify's pricing has stayed relatively stable for many years, but now a change is coming to several of its different plan options.
The leading music-streaming service Spotify has launched a new player inside Facebook's mobile apps on iOS and Android that supports full playback of songs, podcasts and other audio.
There's no denying that streaming music (and streaming media in general) has become the go-to way to consume content for a lot of people. Which means it really matters how much a service pays towards the folks putting content on those services.
It has been rumored for quite some time that Spotify has been hard at work on a piece of hardware to show off its streaming service. And finally the rumors have become reality.
Are you trying to decide which music service to commit to? Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora are at the top of the list of options. They each offer terrific features, are available across multiple platforms, and are comparable in price. So what makes each stand out may be your deciding factor. Let’s have a look!
As you probably already know, Apple Music, Spotify, and Pandora all provide similar features. You can create playlists, listen to stations, manage your music library, tune into podcasts, and much more. So rather than list the same features for each service, we’ll call out some special features and the differences.
