Spotify Alternatives

There is no doubt that Spotify is one of the most popular services among music streaming platforms. It has earned its place over the years thanks to the simplicity of use of its applications and to being available on almost any modern device, from Windows, Mac, Linux, mobile apps (even on discontinued operating systems like windows phone or blackberry), SmartTVs to even video game consoles. Its current library with more than 40 million songs in constant growth and a wide range of cool features such as personalized playlists based on user tastes, artist-based radios, podcasts, social media integration, collaborative playlists and several others, makes the platform a very attractive option for the user who wants to have almost everything without much effort.

However, there is life beyond Spotify. The limitations of its free version and the growing list of new rivals willing to compete with it by offering better features and prices make more and more users feel attracted by other services that may be less known but better suit their needs. If you want to know how to make the leap, we recommend you take a look at the list of the most popular alternatives to Spotify.

Spotify alternatives are mainly Music Streaming Services but may also be Music Discovery Services or Audio Players. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Spotify.
