It comes with an easy to use and very pleasing interface that is clutter free, making it very easy for you to find what you are looking for very easily.

5. Beats

Beats existed for a long time as it's another one of really great music streaming services for Music Lovers everywhere. But recently, Apple acquired the services and incorporated it into a new service known as Apple Music. All Beats members prior to the acquisition were moved to the new services. You might still be able to download the Beats app but you will not be able to sign up for a new account. To do that, you need to head on over to Apple Music. At its height the service gained popularity thanks to a growing music scene and the then famous Beats by Dre Headphones when the company moved from making music accessories to helping you listen to music.


  • The service provides a great recommendation. They actually learn about your music tastes and tailor your collection to meet these needs.
  • Even after being acquired by Apple, the quality still remains and Apple Music brings better and more useful features.


  • If you hadn't signed up for an account prior to the acquisition, you won't be able to now.
  • Offline listening was a little complicated although it works just fine now on Apple Music.
