Music streaming has been around for a while now but it’s safe to say it is here to stay, and it is awesome. The benefits are numerous: no need to fumble with CDs, no need for terrestrial radio that plays the same songs over and over and over again, no need to dig around the internet for hours looking for new music. Only one problem—which music streaming service is the best?
The bottom line is that if you aren’t interested in subscribing to a service, Pandora is your best bet. Most music fans agree that Pandora’s radio algorithms are the best. It might be because they were one of the first to do it.
The most popular music streaming app, Spotify works best when you pay. Their radio isn’t too hot but their interface is very intuitive. It’s easy to save the music you like and to build playlists. Spotify offers over 30 million tracks to choose from.
Tidal is relatively new to the marketplace and this fact plays into its inherent advantage over other services: fidelity. Only with Internet speeds what they are now could you market yourself as Tidal does, for audiophiles. Beyond streaming lossless audio files at high-speed, Tidal offers a great interface and a fantastic selection.
