There are multiple music streaming platforms available, both for free and with a monthly paid subscription including Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora.

Currently, there more providers, more subscription options, more ways to listen, and millions more songs. Recent entry of Apple into the scene with Apple Music has really shaken up the field, and users have been asking themselve question:

  • How does Apple Music it stack up against Pandora and Spotify?
  • How good is Apple Music?
  • Is Pandora still the king of internet radio?
  • Is Spotify still on its meteoric rise?

Let’s take a look. This aeticle will solve thoses questions in detail.

Apple Music Vs Spotify Premium Vs Pandora One

Pandora One

Pandora has been offering music streaming for a very long time now, and its name has become synonymous with internet radio.

The music app is free unless one wants Pandora premium for the same cost as Spotify Premium and Apple Music. Pandora premium offers unlimited replay and the ability to search and play any song.

Listeners can give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to any song to give feedback to Pandora so it can better personalize the station. Users also get a limited number of skips, so that a song can be skipped without giving it a thumbs-down.

However, Pandora’s connection to the Music Genome Project does make it an intriguing option, as there are thousands of potential traits for each song, meaning the radio stations can be customized to very specific types of music.


Now let’s talk about the raising star known as Spotify. This music streaming raising star has made a huge name for itself very quickly with great branding and a phenomenal music selection. Its 30 million songs absolutely blow Pandora out of the water, and their exclusives and wide range of celebrity-curated playlists make it a popular choice for listeners both young and old.

“Spotify provides similar music to playlists you make for yourself which can help you find new songs, and it offers all types of music,” A sophomore at Palmetto, Juliana Medina said. “Regular Spotify only offers you six skips per hour and you have to listen to ads. You also can’t pick your own song, it has to play on shuffle mode.”

The inability to use Spotify’s mobile apps without paying for a subscription can be irritating, though if you don’t listen to music on the go very much, it might not be a big deal. With a subscription price that costs twice as much as Pandora, whether or not Spotify premium is a good deal depends largely on how much you’re likely to use the mobile apps and offline access. The significantly larger music selection is also a big factor.

Apple Music

Apple Music may be the newcomer to the scene, but due to iTunes and Apple’s dominating presence in this tech world, it immediately became a serious contender in the online music streaming space. And by combining a number of features from previous music apps, Apple has created a service that could be tough to beat.

At $9.99 a month, Apple Music offers over 30 million songs without ad interruptions in the midst of your favorite songs. Apple streaming price is the same as Spotify Premium, and offers many of the same features, like offline access to chosen content, mobile apps (even on Android!), and unlimited skips. It includes the features of iTunes Match and Beats Radio, and adds a few more besides, making it a very well-rounded and full-featured music streaming solution.

Which Music Streaming Service is the Best?

Choosing between Spotify and Apple Music is tough. Spotify is well-established, it’s well-liked, and it’s very familiar. Apple Music still feels a little experimental, even though iTunes and Apple have completely dominated the online music scene for years. There are also some less-than-stellar points in Apple’s past, like Beats Radio and Ping. It looks like they’ve learned from their mistakes and created a great service, but it’s hard to know without trying it out.

Additionally, both Spotify and Apple Music offer free trials for users to try how good is their Premium version; Spotify give out 30 free for user and Apple Music give out full three months, for their Premium versions. The best way to figure out which service is best for you is to try them—see if your favorite artists are available, check out the apps, make sure that it’s easy to get the type of music playing experience that you want, and eventually one of these services will come out on top.

In the end, all three streaming services have their pros and cons, it just depends on what experience the user wants. If one wants zero interruptions from ads and the ability to listen to almost every song that’s been created, then Apple Music is the way to go, however it is only available on iPhones and other Apple devices.
