iTunes Match vs. Amazon Music vs. Google Play Music
Tv & Audio
Choosing a music storage service can be a real gamble.
Apple, Amazon and Google all have services that let you access your music in the cloud.
Now the big question, which one of these services is right for you?
To help you solve this, we're going to use a gambling analogy.
Let's do this.
At the Apple table, you will need to pay $25 to play.
These chips represent the amount of songs you can upload to Apple's iTunes Match Services.
At the Amazon table you get a free buy in that's about 250 songs or if you choose you can pay $25 for huge stack of chips, this is Amazon's cloud player service.
At the Google table the zero just gives you a stack of chips.
It's not as big as the one you paid for at Amazon but it's also double the size of chips you've got from Apple.
The best part, it's completely free.
So, as you can see for a lot of people Google is the best option.
The mobile app.
isn't perfect you can't beat the free price tag and the modest amount of storage you get.
If you're music library is huge.
Amazon's cloud player could be worth checking out.
And if you like that Apple ecosystem, well you know where to go.
