THE BEST MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE IS
Spotify offers the best overall package for a streaming service. Its catalog may not be the largest on paper, but it was the most comprehensive—being the one that found most of the searches we threw at it. It is also the most unobstructed service of all those tested, with freemium users being able to access Spotify’s entire catalog on any device with the least restrictions; the few audio ads are a small price to pay for that freedom. Discover, Radio and public playlists are three very different ways to discover new music to listen to, and Spotify makes it very intuitive and seamless to preview, jump in-between or into a new song. The level of polish Spotify puts into its user experience was the one that really cliched the win.
