Spotify, Deezer ... How to listen to music online?

 Thanks to "streaming" and online listening platforms, you can listen to your favorite music on your smartphone, whenever you want. Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz ... which one to choose?

Would you like to listen to a song you heard on the radio again or explore the album of a recently discovered artist ? With an internet connection, all music, new or older, is available on demand through streaming. Like Netflix for series, music can be listened to on an application or on the site of providers such as Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz or even Apple Music . A legal system that respects copyright and remunerates rights holders.

Free or paid depending on the plans , these platforms offer different services. You can buy albums , buy a single song, create thematic playlists or subscribe to those offered by other users. You also easily access selections of podcasts .

If you opt for the free versions , they will not allow you to download the titles to listen to them without an internet connection. You will also have advertisements inserted regularly between two songs and in the application. A paid account will allow you to create several profiles in a family so that everyone can personalize playlists. It's up to you to try!
