These are the 7 best music streaming apps in the world
TIDAL offers over 60 million tracks whereas Spotify has about 50 million; clearly both have a considerable amount of music. Some artists opt to release exclusive music only to TIDAL, sometimes for months, before it is released to the rest of the world.
Verdict: Which is more worth it? Spotify offers more audio quality settings, including a ‘Low’ quality setting of only 24 kbps for those who want to conserve their data plans. However, Tidal takes this round hands down with its HiFi and Master audio quality settings.

The Amazon Music Unlimited Individual Plan (discounted price for Amazon Prime members) is changing from $7.99 to $8.99 per month, or from $79 to $89 per year.
Spotify offers the highest audio quality available which is 320 kbps for Premium subscribers and 160 kbps for free trial users. In the case of Pandora, the situation looks much worse. The audio quality is lower by half, so the difference may be notable especially when you’re used to Spotify’s quality.
There are quite a few music streaming services to choose from in 2022. Spotify and Apple Music continue to be the most popular, but there are other options like Pandora, Amazon Music, Tidal and Deezer (and that’s just naming a few) that are excellent, too.
Artists Not On Tidal
Lily Allen, Marina & the Diamonds, Mumford & Sons, Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and music producer Steve Albini have all spoken out against Tidal; however, their music can all be found on the streaming service.
