Music streaming...

Post by onesea » Fri Sep 11, 2020 9:22 am

It dawned on me on my last run, that my music collection although extensive is being dated...

Looking at music streaming options where do you start...
It must work offline,
We have Amazon Prime (not prime music)
I get unlimited free downloads on Deezer with 3, then our data plans are huge anyway,
We use Android,
Cardo (our headsets) and Spotify are linked,

Any recommendations.

I got a years free Youtube premium (comes with Youtube music) which has been great for us at home. We have the google home hubs in most rooms (googles version of alexa)

Apart from having pretty much every artist/album I want to listen to I've recently started just playing random years to discover songs I had completely forgotten about so while doing the washing up for instance I'll say " Hey Google, play songs from 1996" and It'll play the top 40 songs of that year.

Plays all dab radio stations too so the Wife and I have to argue over whether we are listening to Smooth fm or Radio 2 ( god we are old!! :shock: )

I use it on my phone at work too, can download full albums or playlists onto your phone at home first.

I think most people who do streaming music use spotify. I don't know anything about it though, assume its good as enough seem to pay for it. :lol:

We have the family Spotify account.
4 people with seperate log ins etc all linked.

As a musical family its fantastic for us.
From pretty obscure indie bands which i was into when younger to, well every bloody thing.

Daily playlists which introduce new bands to you. Favourite artists etc.

I have not bought a hard copy cd/Record for 3 year now since we subscribed.

Theres only lewis who still buys stuff and thats only because its cool........

If you have Amazon Prime then you should also have Prime Music?

(unless I've misunderstood)

Plenty of music on YouTube and I'm sure there are a few apps/sites that let you make a backup of the audio only.

I'll say, WTF would anyone do that unless they were at gunpoint? Even then a bullet would bring sweet relief to the shite on offer.

Why?

Streaming via a phone/tablet doesn't use a lot of data, a cheap PAYG SIM would cover it - or your existing contract in all probability.

I pay £5 a month to GiffGaff and never use up my phone or data allowance.

Smashing Pumpkins - 1979, and 99 pieces of excrement. It was an utterly abysmal year for music unless you go Indie http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/1996.html

Why?
Because it's bloody annoying when your music stops because you have lost data signal.
Not everyone lives in places where mobile phone signal can be taken for granted.
Frequently here I am on 3g or nothing, don't say change networks, they all have bad spots you just choose your network to where you live.
