Spotify is one of the world’s most successful streaming service aimed to promote music’s importance in schools. Spotify always enforces the importance of music in education and giving children and students the resources to be able to learn and experience music.
Despite increasing competition, Spotify is still hands-down our favorite music streaming service. With the regular addition of new features, like super-smart playlists, podcasts and social sharing tools, Discover Weekly and Spotify Connect, it feels like the service is coming of age and growing with its user base. You can download playlists and albums inside Spotify to guard against network outages.
Spotify also offers a great selection of playlists that have been created for all kinds of genres and moods. On the web or the desktop app you can play any track, album or playlist at any time or in any order, which is pretty good.
Discover Weekly feature tracks and artists you may not have heard, but which Spotify thinks you’ll like. Spotify’s Your Time Capsule feature guesses the songs you’d have loved in your teens – and it’s scarily accurate. Spotify Connect is one of the most important features for anyone with a Wi-Fi-enabled wireless speaker.
It’ll recommend podcasts and individual episodes, and also allow you to pick ones based on your interests, from stories and games to news and politics.

Deezer: Music & Podcast Player
Despite being one of Spotify’s oldest rivals, Deezer still brings a more diverse song catalog than Google Play Music or Apple Music.
Deezer has tonnes of playlists divided up by genre and mood, although it is bit overstretched and confusing at times. Deezer actually has 2 differentiating features: its Flow playlist and its ‘karaoke-style’ lyrics feature.
Deezer’s Flow playlist is basically the app’s main playlist for you. It plays the songs it thinks you’ll love, based on the artists, songs, and albums you’ve ‘liked’ on Deezer. Also, Deezer’s karaoke-style lyrics are one-of-a-kind. Basically, the lyrics are highlighted as they are sung in the song, so it makes it easier to memorize and sing along to.
