    Why not give the iTunes 3 month free trial a shot, and see for yourself ? :D

    Ok I will. I didn’t know Apple Music was iTunes.

    There's are cost to Spotify? I use Spotify the past few months. Free download. I quit the Sirius few years ago, those stations spool like Groundhog day.

    Spotify premium allows offline listening of custom playlists as well as no add interruptions.

    One advantage I see with apple is they do have better music controls as far as for quality . Those advantages would be lost in our vocation, could be wrong but I am pretty sure hardly any of us have audiophile grade set ups in our trucks.

    I guess Apple Music and iTunes are different entities, but yes, Apple Music is where you'll find the free trial.

    So far I've been able to find whatever albums and songs I've looked for.

    iTunes and Apple Music are the same... I use iTunes to play Apple Music, which is their pay service, it all runs through iTunes.
     
    IluvCATS Thanks this.

    Ok well I’ll milk this trial period of the Spotify premium and then go try Apple Music’s trial period. I’ve had Apple products for over a decade so I’m thinking their interface might be instantly intuitive and thus better.

    Just happened to sign up for 30 day trial of Amazon Music yesterday. It’s $10.99 a month after that. Plan on trying Apple at least before I commit.

    Still don’t like the thought of burning up data to listen to music when I have a 100gb hard drive almost full.
     
    IluvCATS Thanks this.

    Amazon was alright. If you buy "digital" music from Amazon you can play it on anything that can play mp3. You buy it from Apple then you need iTunes to play it and it will only play on iTunes and whatever OS iTunes "supports". You bought it but you can only use it like they say so. It it really yours?
