    "I hate that Spotify forces you sign in all the time. An alternative called Deezer has some restrictions too but not as much as Spotify."

    "Google Play Music lets you do so many things including free radio and finding music from any artist. It's also free and doesn't require a subscription even though you can get one and get even more. Definitely worth using if you're a fan of Spotify, and definitely will deliver on the quality of the content you get to listen to!"

    "I get it, you want to replace spotify. But JOOX is not it. iHeartRadio, Pandora, Deezer, there are better options out there. JOOX is obnoxious - its bandwidth is not great, the audio quality is not great, and the app is just frustrating to use. Moreover, fifty radio stations is paltry - there are other apps with thousands. It's almost a joke. Why did they even bother to add that as a feature? Leave this one behind."

    "In some ways Tidal can be even better than Spotify. Tidal offers hi-fi service and despite the fact that it is $20 per month, many people can still find it worth paying. Tidal is focused on video aspect of the music industry as well. Overall, as of now Spotify is ahead of it simply because of the sheer amount of content and flexibility but Tidal is quite similar to it and it's worth a shot. "
