Spotify, the more personalized streaming service

The quality that sets Spotify from Apple Music is the level of personalization. The app provides users with multiple individualized playlists to fit everyone’s different moods. The app has multiple features to help users find new music they love. 

I switched to Spotify simply because of the song recommendations option.

The home page of the app provides the user with their top played playlist and podcast for quick access. Unlike the other top streaming app, Apple Music provides very little opportunity for users to expand their own personal playlists. 

As an old user of Apple Music I switched to Spotify simply because of the song recommendations option. Spotify has an area below each playlist with multiple songs similar in style and genre for an easy way to build your playlist. The app provides playlist in categories such as “New releases for you,” giving the user  constant new songs.

The Spotify app is available on all different devices unlike Apple Music is only available to iPhone users. This not only limits who can use the app but also who you can share your playlists with. 

The Spotify app allows users to use the app without paying for the Premium subscription. The app allows account holders to create playlists and listen to music without paying, unlike Apple Music, which also does not allow iPhone users to access any music without a subscription. 

Being able to explore the app before paying for the subscription and the level of personalization the app provides make Spotify the better music streaming service.
