    The music app that I like to use are Spotify and Music player. I prefer Music Player because I can listen to music without using the internet

    I used to use VLC, but since it came out of beta it doesn't work on my phone. I'm using the the built-in music app for now, until I find a simple, lightweight alternative.

    I use the Spotify app but have the premium version on a student account. I wont be paying double when my 3 year limit runs out next year. I like the app and the suggestions it makes and that there are no ads. But for £10 a month? This is too much and I'll take my changes and put the radio on thanks.

    If they just offered tariffs lower for those on a lower income, or just offered variations on the price so for £10 maybe you could get podcasts, audiobooks, videos and music where as for £5 it's just music...something like that. I'm sure more would sign up if they are getting more than elsewhere as all the music apps seem to be £10 but they all do more or less the same thing, if one doesn't stand out they all risk being overlooked for another.

    I don't "enjoy" music apps. I enjoy music. But I'm from the era before apps.

    I use Spotify and have had the premium version for years. It's good, but they've changed or removed features I liked and I find I use it less and less so it's getting hard to justify at that price. Their customer service puts me off too - it's basically just one of those customer forums that's like shouting into a black hole.

    in August this year I paid £59 for a year (instead of £79) for amazon prime and have amazon music free with that. I love having music on my phone but cant get all the songs I want a lot of them are on music unlimited which you have you pay an extra £7.99 a month which seems pointless really,, as £59 for the year equates to £5 a month and you iget free delivery as well.

    Vote for Apple Music - works seamlessly with my phone and has pretty much everything I want.

    I’ve been going through free or cheap trials of all of them. So far I’ve done:

    Spotify (3 months for £1)
    Apple Music (Free for 4 months)
    Google Play (Free for 3 months)
    Amazon Music Unlimited (4 months for £1)
    Deezer (Free for 3 months)
    Tidal (Free for 4 months)

    My Tidal subscription expires in February, after which I’ve got Napster, Qobuz and YouTube Music to try out. So far I’ve managed 21 months of free music streaming though.

    In my opinion they’re all decent services and apps, but I’d say the best are:

    Amazon Music Unlimited - for choice. I’ve never not found a track I wanted, whereas the others have all had some gaps.

    Apple Music - for iPhone/iPad integration. Obviously not relevant if you’re on an Android device.

    Deezer - for best app. Nicely laid out, easy to find what you need and very intuitive to use.

    My advice? Wait for deals and try them out. Enjoy.

    Well I have to repeat
    I'm using Google music offline which can play stuff by Google Voice assistant. My phone is also hooked up by blue tooth to my car stereo. So when I'm driving down the road I just say "Hey Google play Innervisions by Stevie wonder" and the album starts playing. I can also just say "hey Google play sting" and it creates a playlist with all my sting tracks (wherever they are) and plays it. I can even skip tracks with my steering wheel stalks. I can't possibly imagine anyone listening to music in any other way????

    I used Spotify, but then tried Deezer and switched to it. Seems better to me

    I really like Spotify, but cancelled my Premium membership a while back as it was no longer worth it to me. I suddenly got really into radio so that's what I mostly play in the car now - as well as a few CDs.
    If I'm at home and want to listen to something different or specific, I'll use the desktop version of Spotify Free, which has more freedom than it does on mobile. The ads don't bother me.

    I use amazon music (the unlimited one). Iíve got Alexa echo things all over the place so I use amazon music because it all works together. Spotify would also work but if it ainít broke and all that.

    Google Play Music is a great platform for me, considering the price and quality ratio.

    I've only ever used two; Google Play Music when I first started streaming my music, and Spotify when I decided to switch for the student discount.
    I prefer Spotify in almost every way, although I do have to admit that it can take a while to get used to. It is more user-friendly now than it was before, but its layout may still take some time to learn.
    What I hate most about Spotify is how much it neglects Android phones. On Apple, you can swipe a song to the left to add it to the queue. While this is a small feature, it is massively helpful and is more convenient than having to hold your finger down on the song and pressing add to queue on android. The sooner this feature becomes available, the better.
