Spotify lets you stream your favorite tunes on your Android phone or tablet.

Pros

The songs you want when you want them: Spotify was the first major music streaming service to enable you to specify which artist, album, or song you want to hear when you want to hear it. While competing services have since caught up, Spotify deserves props for being first.

Best playlists: Spotify wows with the best playlists we've ever encountered. Between Discover Weekly, our favorite Monday morning ritual, delivering a mix of old, new, and new-to-us tracks; #ThrowbackThursday, which creates a nostalgia-inducing playlist out of a previous decade, year, or theme; Your Release Radar, which brings the best new songs from artists we love; New Music Friday, which introduces the top music of the week; and Daily Mixes, which takes the songs we listen to most and builds playlists around them, there's always something to revisit or discover. You can also enjoy playlists created by other users, including famous artists, or easily create your own.

Recommendations: On Spotify's home page, the app delivers generalized playlist recommendations based on mood, genre, and release date. Tap on the Discover tab to view albums you may like based on your recent listening.

Radio: If you miss the old-school Internet jukebox experience, just tap on the Radio tab and play stations based on your favorite music, recently played albums, favorite artists, and myriad genres and decades.

Easy-to-navigate interface: Whether you're using your tablet's big screen or your phone's tiny screen, it's easy to get where you need to go on the Spotify app.

Easy sharing: Find a favorite track? With a tap you can share it with others over chat, email, or social media. You can do the same with albums and playlists.

Concerts: Never miss another concert again, because Spotify notifies you when your favorite artist is coming to town on their artist page.

Original content: With so many me-too services catching up to Spotify's musical offerings, Spotify keeps innovating with the addition of video clips, activity-based playlists, and audio series. Now it's adding original content, including three new music-themed podcasts.

Cons

Premium membership required: For $9.99 per month (new users), $12.99 (existing users), and $4.99 (students), you can enjoy an ad-free experience, the ability to play any song, download music for offline listening (great when you're out of Wi-Fi range), and high-definition sound quality. Without these features Spotify quickly loses its luster. With a premium subscription, you can also control Spotify from the PS4 Quick Menu, so you can add the perfect playtime setlist.

Little Jay-Z or Taylor Swift: Spotify doesn't have access to stream absolutely everything, including much of Jay-Z and Taylor Swift's catalogs.

Bottom Line

Go Premium and enjoy the most exciting music streaming service out there today.
