I've put off learning about and using music streaming services. The other day I got an offer for a 60 day free trial to Spotify premium. Figured what the heck. Kinda digging it.

What do you use and why?

Just Pandora or YouTube sometimes, bought a lot stuff from iTunes over the years. I'm kind of interested in which paid service is best.

Google Play music is pretty damn good.

I don't use it anymore but the interface was good, selection was good, price was good. I don't have a paid service currently, but if I got one it would be Google again.

Amazon Prime because in my mind it's free (I was already a member anyway).

I think there is greater selection in Pandora and Slacker, but I have more than enough in Prime.

i'm simply amazed people still listen to pandora. regardless of how much you tweak your selection it still plays the same songs over and over again. i guess thats why top 40 radio stations still get tons of play though.

i use prime and spotify. its literally all the music ever at your fingertips for next to nothing or free with a few ads. just absurd.

most often, i'm streaming my own stuff from the cloud via google play, although i've started messing with microsoft groove music now that my xbox has finally implemented background music into the OS. i use pandora occasionally, but not like i used to. same complaint as HND. i haven't really given spotify a chance yet, a lot of that has to do with the fact that they don't have an xbox app, but i've heard many good things. i've dabbled with amazon prime when i want to check out something i don't own.

lately i've been spending quite a bit of time on soundcloud, particularly at work.

matter of fact, right now i'm listening to a liquid drum&bass mix i found on soundcloud.

Spotify is my go to. Extremely user friendly and I can get lost heading down random playlists and finding new music.

Soundcloud has some great hard to find mixes. I do that quite often.

Agree with all of the above about Pandora. They are supposedly revamping that format though to make it more like spotify.

Applemusic was too cumbersome to use and I haven't given the new format a try yet. Although these exclusive deals (Frank Ocean!) is making me think I might need to check it out. But I don't think I want to have two streaming services so I probably won't switch until Spotify starts sucking.

I've been using Sonos at home. We have the bridge and some speakers. I generally listen to random "radio" station streams. There seems to be a very large variety. I like the form factor of the Sonos speakers and we've added 2-3 since starting with them. For me, it is a combination of (expensive) home stereo with streaming radio.

My daughter recommends Amazon Prime, as we have that account.

I find iTunes to be awful as far as managing my music. And I don't like that all of my daughter's and sons music is in the Amazon Prime list. I really want to manage MY music, not see everything.

I also wonder about how it works when a family has a shared iTunes program across computers and devices, and then they separate. My daughter will go to college in a few years ... and then her computer and device are no longer connected, so does that mean she loses her music?

I just pay the $4.99 a month (student discount). Well worth it.
