I'm a prime customer, so it'd make sense for me to use their music streaming service as well, but it's crap.

Out of the streaming services I've tested so far:

Apple Music > Spotify >>> Tidal > Amazon Unlimited

I am using AM (on all my Apple Devices) and Spotify (my parents got a free subscription with something), never tried Amazon before, but I get most of my physical stuff there.

I still use Spotify - I've had it for years now and providing nothing drastic changes, I will continue to use it.

I absolutely LOVE it.

Each to their own but how crap for you?
- buggy, ugly and unfunctional app
- an even worse desktop / web version
- half of the music I like not available upon release or ever (Chance, Frank, Kanye, Drake, Bey, Jay...)
- missing Apple's one app for all (downloads + streaming) approach
- doesn't allow you to edit tags
- more expensive than Spotify and Apple Music
- tragic playlists

Was with Spotify but have young daughter and there is no filter option for explicit songs. Don't want her to hear swearing that seems to be on so many songs. Even the charts are littered with it and I couldn't be arsed having to be constantly setting up playlists for replicate something fundamental that should be in their service.

There are threads on their site where this is discussed. "Under consideration" for years despite thousands of posts requesting it.

Switched to Google Play Music which gives a really nice integration between tracks I uploaded and their library. Really happy with it.

Like Rehab said, Amazon's music player UI is atrocious. I just use my Prime subscription for shopping and watching TV series. I prefer using Spotify despite being an Apple addict as Apple's music player has gone from bad to worse. Also, most of my friends are on Spotify, so it is easier for me share and collaborate on playlists.

I tried lots of them but only really fell in love with Spotify. it's so amazing, amazing playlists and interface, connects with Lastfm and has a lot of goodies. Apple Music on Android sucks and Google Play has horrible playlists.
