The source used is a well written article comparing the two services. There is a lot to go by so I will try to scratch the surface as to what it’s getting at.
Spotify hasn’t had much competition since its release back in 2008. Now that Apple a massive global brand has hopped in to the music streaming game they finally have competition worth worrying about. Apple music launched back in 2015, 9 years after Spotify launched. It has a plethora of features that rival other streaming services of its kind. For one Apple owns it, and because of this users have complete access to the whole iTunes library. That is a big deal for people who are lifelong apple users. Even though the service has a massive following and is gaining close to the numbers that Spotify has it’s still falling short. Spotify’s integration with Facebook make it easy for you to relate and see what your friends are listening too. Also their interface is a lot more user friendly than Apple’s. Each service has their ups and downs, but for now and maybe forever Spotify is the king of music streaming services.
