Streaming Audio Services

I currently use Pandora, but the free version has lackluster bitrate, and too many ads.

I'm thinking about going for their premium service that $5 a month. Much better quality and no ads.

What service do you use? Best aspects of it? Worst? Basically am I living in the stone age for considering Pandora Plus?

I've subscribed to Google Play Music for a couple of years and like it a lot. It has a really intuitive and easy to use layout, pretty much any band/song I search for (unless it's something really obscure), and lets you make as many custom playlists as you want. Not to mention I use it every day at work, so it's definitely worth the $9.99 a month to me.

With that said, I'm sure most music streaming services are pretty comparable these days, but I definitely give Google Play Music a recommendation.

I use Apple Music. I like it a lot.

Best: a lot of music available, allows you to upload your already downloaded or ripped MP3s up to the cloud, and works seamlessly with Apple products if you already own those. Family sharing options is nice too.

Worst: I donít have anything I donít like about to be honest. I donít have any Amazon Echo or Google Home products so I have no idea if it works with those things.

Is it odd that I still buy CDs and records? Hell, I still buy stuff off of iTunes. I just like having things without worrying about it being pulled from a service.

That being said, if I do need something besides the days of music I own, I use my libraryís digital service to borrow things. Most bigger releases are available, and I tend to listen to an album multiple times, so being limited to just a few albums a month is no big deal. Plus, itís free.

If I was going to pay for something, itíd likely be YouTube Premium so Iíd have the added benefit of ad-free YouTube.
