So streaming really has taken over, particularly over the past 12 months.

Where do you stream mostly from?

Do you stream premium or freely?

Spotify Premium.

I used to be religiously devoted to Apple Music but it always has way too many bugs and Spotify is more social too which I love.

Been using Spotify Premium for over five years now, it's the best.

I'm Apple Music - I just find it easier to integrate my paid and streamed library. Also I find there are more tracks on it. The bug that irritates me though is the search bar - if you tab back into iTunes and use the search bar, I find it gets confused and starts opening up the menus and it can go haywire. Irritating but they all have their drawbacks.

I imagine I may go back to Spotify in the long-term if it ends up being the most cross-platform compatible streaming service (i.e. with Alexa, Apple TV, phones, etc.)

Paid for Apple Music - haven’t had any problems to make me look elsewhere, and like that it is all intergrated with my pre-streaming age Apple library.

I mean, if it counts, I usually just listen to music on YouTube. I have free Spotify as well which I use occasionally (usually when songs I want to listen to aren't on YouTube) but I find YouTube generally far more convenient to use.

edit: oh that is in the poll, yay xx

I'm Spotify, I've had an account with them since 2009 - I think I started with a free account with BetaTesting and have kept it ever since!

Spotify Premium. The free version is so infuriating and don't even get me started on the free version for the mobile app!

Spotify Premium. It's still the best! I've tried Apple Music and Amazon Music (I still have another two month free trial with the latter) but still can't get into neither. Both seem to make it diificult to find what I want. Spotify has an intuitive user interface, and probably for one reason - it doesn't mix streaming with downloads. Apple Music is dreadful for that, I find myself flitting from one interface to another.

I predominantly use spotify, though I do have the basic amazon music service with my prime package.

As has been mentioned, the social aspect to spotify is a big plus as well as the variety of playlists. I also like being able to see the streaming figures.

I'm Spotify but using Youtube a lot too. My tv has youtube on it and for example the whole of The greatest showman soundtrack is uploaded and so I play it through that leaving my phone free to do whatever I want.
