Voted Spotify, JioSaavn and Wynk Music.

My primary requirement is Telugu regional music, I don't listen to any other music.

Spotify's interface and features are excellent. I love the Gapless playback, Crossfade and Equalizer. This is the only music streaming app that provides a proper equalizer on iOS. The curation of playlists (Both Editor and Users) is awesome. They are also adding the regional content very quickly, some regional songs which were missing at launch are now available. Audio quality, even on very high is not up to the mark. However, with equalizer, it's excellent. This is my primary choice for music now.

JioSaavn comes second for me. It has good quality audio and the collection of songs is also very good. The curation is also good for regional content. Pricing is way too high, one can easily choose Spotify over JioSaavn at this price point.

Wynk Music is my third option. There are lot of bugs in the app, but the music quality in HD is top notch. Even in very high, the quality is excellent. It beats all the other streaming apps in the quality. But the curation and bugs are the downside.

I used all the other streaming apps as well, and they have their own issues. Gaana has the lowest quality among all though it has a good interface and mostly bug free app, Amazon Music doesn't have proper regional content, even after these many days, Apple music takes way too long to add new Albums!!

Voted Spotify, Gaana and Amazon Prime music.

I'm using Spotify since April 2015 and I like the playlist curation and easy creation and share of playlist with others. Spotify knows what kind of music I like and it creates a playlist. And unlike other streaming services, Spotify refreshes playlist with new songs after every 7 days.
After launch I switched to Spotify India and now I can't play many songs because of licensing issues with Warner.
I'll have to agree with Siva bro audio quality is little low. Even I'm using premium and audio quality is set to high.
Below 👇 is an example of only one playlist. Spotify creates many playlist based on personal preference and all are good.


I like Gaana because
It has dark theme and it can be enabled everywhere.
Gaana has radio mirchi. I don't think any other music streaming app has.
Gaana app for windows 10 is filled with bugs and for that reason it is ad free 🤣
Last, I use gaana for streaming Hindi or Punjabi songs.
Radio Mirchi on gaana. 👇 One of the feature which I like the most.


I also use Amazon Prime music. I didn't find anything special but it doesn't cost anything extra, comes with Amazon Prime and it is ad-free (y)

Voted for Spotify and Gaana. I have premium subscription for both. Like others said, playlists on Spotify are great along with nice app user interface. But Spotify quality is little low when compared to Gaana when both are set to highest quality. I use Gaana for regional content and Spotify for international content. At this point, Spotify lacks many songs due to licensing issue. I hope this issue will be solved soon.

I use all the streaming services out there. But I mostly prefer Gaana the most because of lyrics. I also like play music and youtube music. In google play music there is this cache while streaming feature which save the songs we listen to offline.
