What’s the Best App for Your New Year’s Eve Playlist?


New Year's Eve is fast approaching, and we all want to ensure we have the right tunes all ready to go. So what music subscription gives you the most bang for your buck, and suits your devices and needs? We've broken down your options, so you don't have to! Check them out below:

Apple Music

This subscription service is $14.99 per month for you and 6 of your family members. Pros for this choice are simple: it boasts a seamless integration with the library of music you probably already have on iTunes. It also offers a pretty robust system for suggesting music you might like based on what you’ve already listened to. The selling point for New Year’s, though? You can share your family plan subscription with six family members and once you’ve signed up, your playlist from New Year’s Eve on iTunes is automatically on theirs. If most of your online data is tied up in Apple products, I would recommend this choice.

This service is $9.99 per month and does not offer a family plan. However, it also offers a free version and if you can handle hearing ads every now and again, this is the wisest choice for those wanting to save money. Spotify has an app available for just about every device, including your Smart TV.

Soundcloud is $9.99 per month and does not offer a family plan. While Soundcloud doesn’t offer the same amount of new, signed music as other music services, it does have the added bonus of having access to loads of unsigned acts. If you want to discover new music the internet loves, but you won’t hear on your local radio, this service is for you. Click here to try Soundcloud.

Google Play

Google Play is also $14.99 per month for the family plan - this comes with a YouTube Red subscription and you can share it with up to six family members, just like Apple Music. People have complained about the design of the apps available for both iOS and Android devices, but if you’re an avid Google user, and already pay for their other products, this will integrate pretty easily with everything else. Plus, it’s a Google product and it’s bound to only get better with time.

Deezer is a streaming music subscription service that is $9.99 per month with no family plan. They have a huge library of music, including some live recordings that you won’t find on other services. The apps for Deezer span many platforms, including many smart TVs.

All of these services offer a free trial period or a free version of the service. The best choice for you is going to depend on which platform you’re used to, which accounts you already have, and where your music is already stored. But if you want to save money, the family plans make Google and Apple the best bang for your buck.
