I switched over to Apple Music when Spotify stopped doing unlimited offline downloads.

Miranda Arnold says:

I think it just depends. Apple musics is better if you live in the appleverse and have almost all apple (it Apple TV, HomePod, Apple Watch, iPhone, etc). Spotify is kinda stand alone, not attached to a brand. So it can be better supported with third-party items because it’s just Spotify. Apple Music is attached to Apple so it makes sense that you can’t really use Alexa or google to play Apple Music.

Beats Universal says:

Nice, keep it up! We’re a team of beatmakers and producers – it would be great if you could take a look at our tunes when you get a chance as well. Salute

Andrea Gutierrez says:

Why would you use a browser widget for a computer for Apple Music when you can download iTunes… Apple Music > Spotify. Spotify is messy af

Michael G says:

I’d had both serves, but I stick to Apple Music fore the family pack that’s all.

Pyry Karrimaa says:

I go with Apple Music – simple, effective and really – I like the UI more than Spotify. And since I have many Apple devices for work and leisure, I find Apple Music to be my weapon of choice. I don’t mind the monthly payment at all, since I listen to music for multiple hours per day.

DarklingGolem50 says:

I really like Spotify:
Download is easy
Alexa or Google Home integration (We only have Google Homes and Chromecast)
Android and iPhone Support (We switched from iOS to Android a few months back)
Cheap where I live (Philippines)
supported in Windows 10 (App or executable)

Question: Say if you used Apple Music for about 6 months, downloaded loads of songs, but then you cancelled with Apple Music, would you lose all the songs you downloaded? (Also does this apply to Spotify?) Thanks

If you’re looking to get into the “apple ecosystem” you should look into Apple Music. Anything other than that it’s Spotify. No question about it.

Bradley Taylor says:

I’ve been subscribed to Apple music for months now but just yesterday my membership expired. Spotify had or still has this deal where you get 3 months for just $9.99, so I ended up choosing them. So far so good but my only gripe with Spotify is that it doesn’t have a widget. Apple music comes with one and it’s super convenient being able to go and play some of my most recent songs/playlists/albums just by the widget page. With Spotify though I’ll have to go into the app each and every time I want to play music. Very little complaint but after using the widget so much it kind of feels weird not being able to use it.

What I do like about Spotify though is the Crossfade feature in the settings. Also like the dark theme to it (all themes matter).
