In the ever-increasing technological society that we live in, the options for how to listen and where to listen to music keep growing more and more. We will be discussing How To Listen To Music Online specifically throughout this article.
You can stream music and sometimes even full albums from certain websites for free. YouTube is a perfect example of this, although they don’t allow the same type of freedom that a streaming app does. This Amazon Music Unlimited review will help you make an informed decision.
Prime Music – Free For All Prime Members
Now first, to start off there are free online music streaming services through companies such as Amazon. If you already pay for a Prime membership, all you have to do is download the Prime Music app on your smartphone. If you prefer to listen on a desktop, all you have to do is log in to your Prime account and navigate to the music streaming section from the home page.
Amazon Music Unlimited App
The Music Unlimited app is now offered through Amazon and is much like Spotify but there are a few differences.
First and foremost, the selection on Music Unlimited isn’t as vast as the selection on Spotify. This can be looked at two different ways.
- It’s a positive thing because it weeds out the artists that no one has ever heard of2.
- It’s a small negative because maybe you like discovering new, underground artists3.
- It really all boils down to what you’re looking to get out of a music streaming app/service.
If you’re a casual listener who just wants to press play to have a little background noise at your Friday night party then it really doesn’t matter either way.
If you’re a music fanatic, on the other hand, it’ll be worth considering looking into an app that offers a wide range of genres and artists/bands within those genres.
Streaming Quality vs. Mobility
I have heard complaints from people that say that the quality of music that is streamed doesn’t come close to matching the quality of, say, a record player for example. I tend to agree with these people.
That being said, if I don’t have to carry 15 physical albums around everywhere I go, I’m willing to sacrifice some sound quality here and there. Also, most if not all, smartphones have EQ settings that you can adjust to better enhance the sound quality of your music.
Downloadable Content – Streaming Music Offline
Both Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited give you the option to download your favorite songs for offline listening. This was a big selling point for me when I made the decision to switch from a free Spotify account to a Music Unlimited membership. What this means is that let’s say you want to listen to The Doors at work or in your car but you are running low on cell phone data.
No problem, all you have to do is download the album or song and whenever you want to enjoy it, open up the Unlimited app on your phone/computer and listen away. Granted, it will take up some storage space on your phone but it is a nice option to have if you want it, especially if you don’t enjoy carrying physical albums around on a long road trip, etc.
