Spotify

Spotify is probably the most popular music streaming app on the market. It’s also possibly the biggest, with a library of more than 25 million songs. You can stream music for free, but it’s supported by advertising – so the experience is a bit like listening to a commercial radio station. To get rid of the ads, you need a Premium subscription – priced at £12.99 a month in the UK – which also gives you the ability to listen to your music offline.
