Apple Music, the superior streaming service

The three things I look for in a good music streaming service are simplicity, ease of use, and audio quality. Apple Music offers all of those.

Apple Music is simple and easy to use. The overall structure of the streaming service is user friendly, clean, and much less crowded compared to its competitor, Spotify. 

When you open up Apple Music you are greeted by a list of options for albums, songs, artists, and playlists. Below that you have everything that you have recently added in your library. It is so simple to navigate where your music is when compared to the convoluted start screen of Spotify. 

On top of the easy way to navigate your Music Library, the other features that Apple Music offers are extremely useful. Apple Radio allows you to listen to station genres and creates a radio station specifically for you. In the “Browse” tab, you can see new releases on Apple Music and the top songs in your area and the country. 

“Listen Now” shows playlists that Apple makes for you like “New Music Mix,” “Chill Mix,” and “Favorites mix.” On top of that they have a playlist called “Friends Mix” that shows you any songs your Apple Music friends are listening to. 

Most importantly with all those features it is just simple. The organization makes Apple Music easy to use. 

New to Apple Music is its biggest feature to date. Spatial Audio and Lossless. These features have improved the sound quality for listeners with absolutely no additional charge. Spotify users are paying the same price as Apple Music for lower quality sound. 

Having the highest quality sound and having user-friendly features from your streaming service should be the most important factor in deciding which one to pick. If you are paying the same, why not pick the better one?
