Tidal might be having a tough time recently, but it's popular among those looking for higher-quality music, and now another name is entering the US audiophile-grade streaming market.

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Streaming music is usually dominated by large names like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music, but there are some smaller services out there. Tidal might be having a tough time recently, but it's popular among those looking for higher-quality music, and now another name is entering the US audiophile-grade streaming market. Qobuz (don't ask us how to pronounce it) is bringing its high-resolution 40-million track audio library stateside later this year. 

If you haven't heard of Qobuz, that's not surprising.

Google Home Max review: The best (and most expensive) smart speaker

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

The chances are almost 100% that everyone reading this has some way to access the Google Assistant. You might even have more than one Assistant device now that most phone released in the last few years have support and Google is handing out Home Minis like they're going to expire. The original Google Home has a respectable speaker for the size, and many people use it to listen to music. Yet, for anyone who's serious about their tunes, the Home and Home Mini just don't cut it.

Spotify sued for $1.6 billion by publisher for Tom Petty, Neil Young, other major artists

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

Spotify could be in some trouble. $1.6 billion worth of trouble, to be exact. Variety reports that the music streaming giant is being sued by the Wixen Publishing Company for allegedly using thousands of popular songs by major artists without permission or proper compensation.

To understand Wixen's grievance, it's important to distinguish between the music labels (the record companies) and the music publishers. Generally, the labels recruit artists, market their music and videos, and may also handle recording, distribution, and myriad other aspects of music production.

YouTube Music app crosses 50 million downloads on the Play Store

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

Of all the streaming music services, I find YouTube Music the most puzzling. This is undoubtedly because I am not a millennial, and by that I mean I am old and irrelevant. YouTube Music clearly doesn't need me to understand its appeal, because its Android app just passed the 50,000,000 installs threshold on the Play Store.

The app and the YouTube Music service are free, just like YouTube itself, but a subscription to YouTube Red/Google Play Music will unlock the premium features that make the service truly shine for its core audience, such as ad-free content, continuous audio when the app is in the background, and offline playing.

Pandora went many years without a traditional music streaming option like Spotify or Play Music, but it eventually adde the $10 Premium tier that allows you to play whatever tuns you want.

SoundCloud’s redesigned home screen features personalized playlists and curated recommendations

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

SoundCloud has announced today that it's given the home screen of its Android app a fresh lick of paint. Until now, the app would open with a stream of the latest releases from the artists and labels you follow. That content is still there, in a new tab highlighted by a lightning bolt, but the home screen has a few new goodies to keep you interested.

The new home experience is headlined by personalized playlists such as 'More of what you like' and 'Artists you should know,' which are automatically created based on your listening history.

New Google music streaming service YouTube ‘Remix’ could launch in March 2018

Friday, December 8th, 2017

It's clear Google sees a benefit in owning a music service to rival Spotify and Apple Music, but making it happen is proving incredibly difficult. Google Play Music hasn't exactly captured the imagination, in no small part due to its terrible app, and YouTube Red (previously YouTube Music Key) hasn't fared much better. Fear not, another attempt is on its way.

We already knew that Play Music and YouTube Red would be merging in some form, but now we know an entirely new service will be created.
