Apple Music VS. Spotify | What’s The Best Music Platform

Spotify and Apple Music are two of the really very popular music streaming services out there. Apple released its music service over five years ago to rival Spotify by offering an extensive range of services and even deeper integration with Apple products.

While the two music platforms offer a very similar catalogue of music, it can be quite hard for users to choose between the two services.

Music library

The total number of songs offered by the two services is becoming less of a differentiating factor. However, Apple Music takes the lead with an impressive 60 M songs library over Spotify’s 50 M figure.

Library limit

The total number of songs that users can save on their app library. Spotify currently allows its users to store 10,000 songs to your library, while Apple Music has a limit of 100,000.
