I hated Apple music, my personal library was messed with and songs disappeared. I too am on the apple ecosystem exclusively and won't touch Apple music.

Spotify has been good

I also got the deal. Will not use it after 3 months so for $1, can't complain. I also found Google Play Music to be better than any other streaming services. It has songs from my country (and other foreign) too, which Apple music and Spotify seem to lack.

Awesome, just in time for summer. Like last year, I'll hold off signing up until the first week of June to last me until the kids are back in school before I cancel.

Whether the end user pays Spotify or not, artists get paid.

This. Apple music was a test of temper control when I had it. Horrible.
Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.

And the reason this happens is that there is still enough people subscribing for money. This isnt like paying taxes where the bulk of it goes into the pockets of corporations and their friends, its going to artists.

It's like saying, I don't mind robbing people, but robbing specific people is disgusting. Double standard much?

Piracy is piracy. That it is a free windows software, a downloaded movie, torrenting music or APKing free games, someone is being robbed of their money somewhere.

edit: people downvoting this comment: I never said I didn't pirate. But don't give me that righteous BS about artists not being paid when you go torrent illegally. Bunch of hypocrites.

They are paid by the number of times their songs are being played. They don't automatically get paid.

Indeed, what I meant was that whether the end user pays spotify a fee, listens to ads, or doesn't; the artists still get paid when their songs get played.

I guess I'll be switching over from Google music. I really like music but being a student and getting 3 months for 99 cents just makes it souch cheaper. Gotta switch. If Google stuck with a 4.98 student plan I'd have stayed.

Thanks op

I absolutely hate Apple Music. Besides a gaming PC, I am very much within the Apple ecosystem (2 rMBPs, an iMac, 2 Apple TV 4s, iPad, and the wife and I have an iPhone), but I cannot get into Apple Music. Clearly I would benefit from it, considering I'm in the ecosystem, but spotify blows them away I find.
This x 100000000000

Longtime Apple user, fully immersed in their ecosystem. Loathe Apple Music (and its evil forefather, iTunes).

Spotify > Google Play > FM radio > Apple Music > AM radio

Thanks OP! Back at it again! Signed up. Lol, I just signed up with another email for 1 month free premium. That still has ads. This is way better!

I've never used Spotify but when they say you can download for offline play, how long do those downloads last?

Record pools are $30 a month and you get CD quality files to keep. I travel a lot and can't be streaming music all the time.
