Maybe it’s the free access to Spotify again (even though I used to pay for Apple Music) and the way the music is presented (not just albums but playlists), but music has reclaimed an important part of my life again, that was practically on hold for the last decade. I missed it.

@kaa I felt something similar when I finally switched from a locally-stored music collection to streaming, first with Apple then Spotify. I never used to make playlists but now it's practically the only way I listen to music now.

@kaa one of the best features of Spotify: They really know what you like. The recommendations are awesome.

@dominikhoecht That depends of course how you have used Spotify in the past. For several years I used Spotify exclusively for listening to new tracks in order to decide whether to buy the track in iTunes (usually the answer was negative). As a result, my Spotify recommendations are horrendous and the main reason why I subscribed to Apple Music instead.

@jeroensangers That's right. With me, it's a good mix. I listen to my favorite music most of the time. Based on this I always get new (good) recommendations which I listen to. If I like them, I save them as albums and listen to them more often. Spotify seems so smart to understand this. What I don't hear so often is then mostly ignored. And because of iTunes: If I like something I a lot, I buy the music. I listen to it on Spotify, but it's worth a little support.
