In general I prefer Apple Music. It has the best selection of music compared to any other service, and the features on it surpass Spotify imo (the radio feature is much better, although the playlists could use some work.)

I occasionally use Pandora if I'm in the middle of nowhere with shitty cell connection since the audio quality is lower and can stream well pretty much anywhere with 3G.

Get a fucking SD card fagget, you're going to pay $10 a GB to stream "those fucking lossless audio files".

OP here

I pirate a shitton of music, but my problem is sometimes the jazz I like isn't there or has like 1 seeder n shit. I have a 16 gb sd card, which would be enough for a few albums, but it wouldn't be enough for all the music that can be stored in mp3
>>
Google play music
>>
>>52519999
Chekd, this is tru

>>52520130
Just buy a bigger sd card senpai. They're cheap as fuck these days.

What is the point of streaming music? I've always downloaded it. How and who streams it, do I have no pay for it?

What are the benefits of streaming music over having it locally?

Spotify is literally the worst of both worlds: You have to stream all the music and you have to have it stored on your computer too. To top it all off, people actually pay for this. Absolutely amazing.

iTunes does have cancerous DRM, but with that being said I think streaming has made buying songs on iTunes obsolete, considering you can have access to the whole music collection on iTunes as opposed to buying a single album for $10.

>>52520194
I pick all three.

Direct Play = direct copy of file on my hard drive is streamed

Nothing more than I'm already paying for internet and electricity.

the ads are short as fuck why would you

spotify hasnt even used more than 5 gigs since i started using it last year
>>
>>52520286
Because you don't do their offline play thing
>>
>>52520295

For me the point of spotify is to listen to stuff i dont have already and to listen to music in my car

Spotify premium.

>1 buck for 3 month.
>>
>>52520286
You get to choose out any song you want with premium and don't have to use shuffle on playlists all of the time.

You also get to use 320KPS audio instead of 192 but I've personally never noticed a difference.
