… hard to tell. Honestly, they all offers more or less the exact same features, for the same price. So here is a few tips for your to choose one provider instead of another one.

Try it!

Almost every provider will offer a free trial period, it is the best way to test it and see if you like it or not. Try each of them for a full month, then make your choice. Until then, it is already 4 free months of music streaming.

Platforms

Depending on what platforms you own, you might want to avoid some providers. For example, if you run Linux on your main computer, you might avoid Apple Music since you won’t be able to play it (easily) from your main computer.

Concurrent connections

Depending on your usage : sharing with members of your familly or not, please note that several providers offers or not the ability the share your account and listen to different music at the same time to a fixed and limited numbers of devices. You might want to pay attention to that value.

Promotions

Last but not least, there are several promotions all around the year. This means it can be good to wait for a good promotion in order to save some bucks and help you make your mind on the budget side of the coin.

That’s all! Let me know if you are already streaming music, if so what do you use, and why do you do? Please also note that promo / affiliate codes are welcome in the comments.
