How Apple Music compares to the competition
In comparison to music streaming sites like Spotify or Pandora, Apple Music can feel a bit mysterious. Anyone who signs up will have to pay a monthly fee to use the service. Considering that Apple Music offers live radio shows and interesting exclusives, this fee may be well worth it to the right buyers. Before we dive into the different pricing tiers Apple Music has to offer, we should note that all the subscriptions offer access to the same catalog of ad-free content, offline listening, Beats 1 live and on-demand radio shows, and exclusive releases. Just like Spotify , Apple offers all students with a valid student email address from a supported educational institution half-off an Apple Music membership. The offer is available only for college students at this time.

The giants of streaming offer a lot for music and podcast fans alike. Let's see how they compare on price, catalog, features and more. Apple Music and Spotify are the two biggest names in music streaming. Part of your choice comes down to where you listen -- so figuring out which one has the best smart speaker support is essential if you're enjoying music at home. But other factors such as music discovery and stream quality can be just as important if not more for keen music fans. This comparison is updated periodically with new information. Spotify is the most flexible option if you want to stream songs without paying, because it has a free, ad-supported tier. You can use Spotify across different devices from smart speakers to game consoles to phones. There's also a robust podcast offering, including some exclusives.
Apple Music already offers a three-month free subscription for new users, but now Apple has announced an interesting Christmas deal. As of today until the end of , you can subscribe to Apple Music without paying anything for the first six months. First spotted by Macworld UK , the campaign comes through the Shazam app, which is also owned by Apple. However, although the app is available worldwide, the deal is only valid in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Open the Shazam app on your iPhone or iPad. If you have never used the app, you may have to identify a song first by tapping the Shazam icon. You should be prompted with the six months subscription deal for free.
