    Google Music offers the best of both Spotify and Apple Music and has the best sound quality. I'd say Spotify is the best because of it's playlist and music discovery features and I also prefer it's look as well. Apple Music is my least favorite because it doesn't do any one thing very well.

    I only pay for Apple Music, because every time I plug my phone to my car. It plays Apple Music right away. I hated going out and staring Spotify and it was like that for every single time I got in the car. As a service Music, I like Spotify better and can eq your music and it’s easier to find good music. Apple needs some work on that department I think.

    The only thing I like about Spotify is the User Interface With one of the best graphics and the large collection of songs !

    I’ve had Spotify for almost 2 months now and I love it. It’s the beta service for music discovery, after using Apple Music since launch day back in 2015 it lacked in music discovery. Although the design for Apple Is move simple and easy to understand compared to Spotify which is too clunky and messy, also when I scroll down in my playlist it activates a new song, it’s annoying.

    You couldn't find one AM subscriber from your office to give reasons why they prefer it to the other services? You guys are letting these kids comments affect the way you cover Apple and it's kinda funny to watch.

    I have both. I'm not some big spender though. I have the student subscriptions, and only because my house is a bit torn apart. My mom needs Google Assistant and I need Apple Music. I don't like the music discovery too much on Spotify and it does not really have the Korean tracks I listen to. We have Chromecast and Apple TV, so for the time being I am undecided.

    Why do we always skip over Google /YT Music? Apple music needs work and Spotify is meh . I'm not all into playlists but YouTube Music has a better algorithm in my opinion
