These days it seems like everyone lives with their headphones in. Whether they’re working out, walking down the street, or in the office, everyone is plugged in. It seems incredible that there are enough songs in the world to keep everyone occupied 24/7. But there are! With an array of streaming services at everyone’s fingertips, there’s something for everyone, and your options go far beyond music. With just a few of the most popular streaming services on your phone, you have access to everything you could ever want.
If You’re a Music Lover
Apple Music reigns supreme for music lovers with over 45 million songs available to stream and pre-made playlists available for download. Of course, if you’re looking for a free service Pandora and Spotify will work great. The trade-off for free music, however, is limited “skips” meaning having to sit through songs you might not like, and having to listen to ads between songs.
If You’re a Beyonce Fan
Tidal is jointly owned by Beyonce and Jay-Z, so if you don’t want to wait one second for their new music, Tidal is your best option. For her past 2 album releases, Beyonce has given Tidal exclusive streaming rights for a period of time before the music becomes widely available.
If You’re a Bookworm
Amazon Audible is the holy grail for bookworms everywhere. There’s no need to put the book down to cook dinner, drive to work, or get things done. For $14.99 a month you get access to the widest library of audiobooks available and 30% off any book you choose to download. Take them anywhere and listen on or offline- perfect for road trips and commutes!
If You’re a Podcast Buff
If you’re a fan of one of these podcasts, Spotify is your best source. The app allows you to download and listen to podcasts with or without service and makes it easy for you to find new topics that you might like.
Of all of these Spotify is the big winner, especially with its discounted entertainment bundle with Hulu and its family account deals. Overall, Spotify has the best value for all that it offers. With the array of streaming services available, it’s unlikely that you’ll run out of new things to listen to.
