Youtube music

YouTube Music allows you to listen to music from YouTube, but without videos on screen. The only cumbersome thing is that, like its sister platform, you will hear ads that will interrupt the music, although for $10 a month you can avoid it. A subscription will also allow you to listen to your tracks in the background, you will be able to download tracks to enjoy them without an internet connection. The big “but” is the sound quality.

YouTube Music Premium


Pandora is a mainstay in the streaming world. The service selects personalized radio stations with advanced algorithms, based on a specific topic or artist. Just launch the app, drop in a song or artist, and let Pandora do the rest. If you want an ad-free experience, you can opt for a $5 subscription. For $10 USD, you can upgrade to the Premium version, which gives you the ability to choose individual tracks.


Tidal has over 25 million quality tracks, quick access to music videos, personalized suggestions and in-depth interviews from Jack White to Jay-Z. It has multiple subscription options, including Premium ($10/month) for the standard service and HiFi ($20/month) for lossless tracks.
