The 5 Best Music Apps for Listening On the Go

October 02, 2019 2 min read

We all love music, whether it’s classical or hard rock. After all, one of the biggest factors in buying earbuds is how your music sounds coming through.

Lucky for us, this is the age of music, with countless apps and streaming services available for us to choose from. Unfortunately, sometimes it can feel like there are so many apps that you’ll never be able to choose.

That’s why we’ve made a comprehensive list of the five best music apps for when you want to listen to music on the go.

5. Amazon Music

With the popularity of Alexa and Echo, it’s no surprise that Amazon threw its hat in the music ring. The platform offers access to over 50 million songs for $10 a month. Prime Members get a discounted rate of $8 a month. 

The only downside to this service is there is no offline streaming, which can hinder your music-listening experience.

4. Apple Music

Apple led the charge soon after Pandora and iHeartRadio became popular. However, it has survived, while their base has dwindled. This survival owes itself to the service’s 50 million song library, which includes custom playlists, radio shows, and podcasts, all for $10 a month.

What puts this platform above Amazon Music, though, is the $5 a month student rate.

3. YouTube Music

We’ve all been watching YouTube music videos since 2008, so it makes sense that YouTube joined the crowd of music streaming services. 

YouTube Music gives you free streaming online, but if you want to go offline, you have to subscribe. Their Premium subscription will cost you $10 a month.

2. Google Play

With the recent news that Google Play will soon become a part of the YouTube Music App, you may think that now would be a bad time to jump on the Google Play bandwagon. 

That is not the case! 

We don’t have an exact date for the merge, and while you have the Google Play $10 a month subscription, you also get access to YouTube Red, which is a steal

The Winner: Spotify

Finally, the very top of the heap! Spotify takes our top spot because of its 50 million song library that includes podcasts, talk shows, and personalized playlists. Listening online costs nothing! Not to mention, when you do want to go offline, there are amazing deals.

To download music or podcasts offline, Spotify Premium will cost you $10 a month, however, they also offer a special $4.99 a month rate for students! So, with Spotify Premium, students can listen to any artist in Spotify’s library.

But wait--there’s more! Students can also bundle Spotify Premium with Hulu and Showtime for that same $4.99 a month rate.

All of these reasons make Spotify the top music app to listen to on the go, especially with Rowkin earbuds!
