Thank you for asking that question! The reason I chose Spotify was that most of my friends are on Spotify and not on other Music Platforms. I chose Spotify because it has the "friends activity" I really like their format on Desktop and it keeps getting better and better. I like how you can publically show you're recently "played" artists.
One of the reasons was its price. I am part of a Family Plan with 6 people and only $15 a month. A Super Great Deal! Only $2.50 a month for one person in the Plan! That is why we chose it for Spotify! We chose it because it was super cheap and it had great reviews. And I am glad my family made the right decision on doing the Family Plan.
Hope you know partly why I chose Spotify as my main music streaming service. I would love to hear @Heythatsme, at why you chose Spotify.
A couple of my friends had Spotify. I tried it free and decided it would do just fine. Not all of the music I wanted was there but there was enough. The price is right, it is simple and it does what I want most of the time.
I compare with other services from time to time and so far there was no incentive for me to shift. I am not inclined to pay more for even better sound quality, my hearing is not that good. I would shift, or pay more, for a better catalog and better-sounding masters (cf. loudness war) but we are at the mercy of record labels here. Everyone has the same music and if the album is poorly (re)mastered it's the same everywhere. I'm not surprised people get into vinyl again. 🙂
My friends recommended spotify, so I decided to use it.
I think I read about spotify before, a tweet I think from an artist saying their song hit a certain number of views on spotify, so I got curious, and I'm pretty satisfied since there is a variety of J-pop, and K-pop as well ^w^
Spotify helped me discover other songs as well, something out of my comfort zone.
I believe I started using Spotify in 2013 or 2014, perhaps for a similar reason as for @Flanstario1: I knew that my brother was using it, and I was curious to try out the app as well. I was also in the scenario that @Sebasty mentioned, in which I wasn’t familiar with any other streaming platforms at the time (I also didn’t know much about Spotify either, other than that it is an app for listening to music). However, I soon found that I really enjoyed listening to music on Spotify; and since then, I haven’t felt a need to try out any other streaming platform. Cheers!
