"WHY are you using Spotify instead of Google Play Music?"
Tue Dec-16-14 06:50 AM by FLUIDJ

  

          

stop that insanity.
please.

You can browse online.
You can upload your OWN collection and access it via your account.
You can SHARE individual songs or entire albums with your friends.
You can browse and catch music for offline listening.
You can save music directly to your devices internal or external storage (micro SD card that is).
It works very well.
Has an extensive library.
Has a radio option similar to Spotify if that's your thing.
You DON'T need to have Facebook to use it.
You DON'T need to have Google+ account to use it.

I won't even mention iTunes...don't see how ANYBODY uses THAT crap. It's the Internet Explorer if Macs...

It works...it works WELL...VERY well.


here ya go. $9.99/month.

When they drug their feet releasing an Android app I finally dropped them for Spotify for a hot minute, then moved on to Google Play.
I tried Beats for like a day....something about it didn't click...or I was just already All IN with Google play.

Their search engine isn't great, and discover of new releases isn't great either..

But the curated playlists are really good.

And you can pay with iTunes dollars - and those go on sale 25% sometimes (once or twice a year.)

Plus, Spotify seems like its run by dickwads.

The spotify app is cleaner than the Google Play app but it kills your battery. The desktop is just as bad. It slows everything down and eats up your battery (laptop). This is on a fairly new MBP. Can't even run it on an older PC laptop.

I can see this being an issue if you never buy apps, only get free apps.... that's me btw...I've only ever paid for like 3 apps probably... if there's not a free version of an app I like...i'll seek out an alternative free version with similar functionality.

In response to Reply # 6


  

          

but I never bothered with it because Pandora was better at the time and I was still a Zune/Xbox music subscriber. Those two fit the bill better and Spotify was just a novelty with less features than I already had in Pandora & Xbox Music....

Once Google Play came through and really enhanced their offering I was all in with them and Spotify was STILL not 100% worth being invested in.

I just logged in to Spotify after making this post though...wanted to check it out again and see if I was missing anything.....

I don't appear to be.

I've been using it since it launched.

it's never pulled me away from Spotify.

I make playlists, I include my own MP3s, they sync between devices, and I can even do control across devices -- desktop to phone to tablet etc.

I understand what Google Music does, and what it does well, and I still prefer Spotify.

pick the one I want to play it on and control it

phone. tablet. pc.

I believe that with the last update they don't even have to be on the same wifi network to start. previously you could do it over diff networks, but you had to start on the same wifi. I often play my music in the car from my ipad, but I can control it from my phone.

on the display when you're using the Soundcloud app....
FCK!
NOW I want a Moto360...JUST for this. lol.
Do all the Android Wear watches do this?
Do the other music apps do this too?

and yeah....if Soundcloud gets a subscription service equal to Google Play & Spotify, i'd be ALL IN. Their interface is pretty much the GOAT.

all in all the mobile app kinda sucks
but for music discovery soundcloud is really the way to go

the key to happiness is not being rich;
it's doing something arduous and
creating something of value and then
being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i tried to get into it because i didnt care for Spotify over Pandora

Google Play kept having streaming issues. at first i thought it was just me/my phone, looked it up and seen that apparently it was a major issue they've been trying to fix

they may have fixed it now though

in the meantime ive been using Amazon and Pandora

with it because I like the Beats interface better than the others. That's really what it's about at this point - all the streaming services pretty much offer the same library and features. It's just a question of what interface/app do you prefer to use.

Extensive library, good features (I dig the video sync with Youtube they just intro'd), and they're doing better with content...even featuring some mixtapes. Only thing I don't like are the gaps in their library - some of my favorite albums are missing (ie The Listening, Raphael Saadiq as Ray-Ray and a few others).

When you play something in the google music app - if there's an associated official youtube video, you just hit the icon and it brings it up. Once it's over it goes back to the Play app.

icon, will it automatically start casting the video to Chromecast?

Seems like when I noticed the feature before, it kept playing the music on my Chromecast, but the YouTube Video started playing on my device. I'd like it to just start playing the YouTube on the Chromecast..

it had everything...and it had it YEARS before all the current players on the field...but it was slept on HARD.

I think Rdio is like that too. It's the best radio style service out there....I always forget to check for it though...but when I did in the past, i enjoyed it... Thanks for prompting me to revisit it.

Nice way to get a taste of things without the full on investment.

I was burned SOOOOOOooo many times with CD purchases from like 2000 - 2008 or so...was spending waaaay more than $7.99/month (i'm locked in to the Google Play introductory rates)...so i'm saving money for the most part. Especially the way OKP is notorious for hyping mediocre obscure shit.

But for the most part...I don't really even have a convenient means of playing physical media any more. And I have absolutely no way to rip CDs anymore since my MacBook Pro doesn't even have an optical drive.

The coolest program is Amazon though, you buy a hard copy and get the digital copy free for a lot of their stuff....

With Google Play, you don't have to stream, if you subscribe, you can download whatever you want onto your phone and play it from there. It's just DRM'd to your device or internal microSD card.. So yeah...I got a 64GB mSD on my Note4 that's pretty much chock full of music that I "Rent" from Google Play. No need to use data to listen to it.

Also, the few mp3's I've ever bought (and that number is extremely low... shit has to be GOOT for me to buy music that I can't get a physical copy of) I have stored across numerous CD and DVD backups.

nor do i want cds taking up space especially since theres no cd player in the house

not dissing your way of doing things, just giving the scenario why that would work for some. i honestly don't care about whether or not i 'own' the music i listen to. not really interested in trying to download it either. i just wanna find the song and play it wherever i want.

i have some emergency mp3s on my phone and the 200 or so GB of old music on my HDD on the RARE occasion i'm ever offline.

Spotify barely works unless you pay for it. You can still listen to playlist offline but thats about it.

Google Play does not require you to pay for it to work well. You can still access your music (or most of it) make your own play list and listen to the radio. If you pay the sub you have access to all the music in their database and can even download and listen to albums offline.

I use both. Spotify for the desktop and google play for mobile.

I've had spotify for years and don't think I've seen this work.

I see the song that i added to the local library on my desktop version of spotify, but I can't play them on my phone unless I download them separately to my phone.

Why pay for either?

but as far as paying....I like the full access to new releases, old catalog stuff that I may want to hear occasionally, ability to explore different genres, access to children's music that I DAMN sho don't want to be buying out right, it's a model that just worked for me since I was a Zune subscriber.
I guess it's the equiv. to cable TV...except I actually take full advantage of all the "channels" lol...

I use Pandora when I just want to hear some random stuff based off of one song though...
