Having access to a great selection of music is something I take rather seriously. I’m not someone who regularly listens to the radio; in fact, 90 per cent of the music I listen to comes from my phone, the songs being ones I’ve chosen and downloaded myself.
I’ve gotten kind of bored with iTunes, and I’ve been looking for a different means to access music. I’ve been debating between Apple Play and Spotify, and after deciding to purchase a Spotify premium account, I thought I would share my experiences with you.
I actually signed up for a Spotify account a few years ago when it first started to gain popularity, but I didn’t really follow-up with it. A free Spotify account allows you to access the program and listen to songs, but you’re not able to download them to your library, meaning whenever you’re using the app, you’re relying on Wifi or data. A premium membership, on the other hand, allows you to download entire playlists as well as songs into your library, allowing you to listen to them whenever you want without having to be connected to the internet.
A premium account with Spotify costs $10 a month, and while we may be inclined to think that’s somewhat steep simply for music, I have to disagree. One of Spotify’s most appealing features, in my opinion, is its ability to create playlists specifically for you based on what you tend to listen to within the app. It gives you a new playlist every day, and honestly, it makes you feel a little special that a playlist of rocking beats has been tailored to compliment your music preferences.
I’m relatively pumped about my premium membership with Spotify, and thus far, I think it’s absolutely worth the money. Check out their website if you’re interested in getting one yourself!
