The best music services out there, here is the comparison between them.
Deezer spotify vs Grooveshark vs Wimp vs Rdio
|Songs||25 Millions +||15 Millions +||20 Millions +||20 Millions +||20 Millions +|
|Linux app||No||Yes (not official)||No||Yes||Yes (using adobe air)|
There might be some legal issues with their service, as google play, apple store and facebook has removed their app from their market.
Also they use java to upload own music to your library from their site. That forces you to have java installed. it looks like Win98 to upload music.
Works in most countries though.
Deezer app is available in google play and app store. Got a great way to recommend music for you, even in genres. Probably best quality for all services for music. If you google, you will find out that is alot better than Spotify. Works in almost every devices out there, even in Smart TV.
Only service that offer 320kbps for most of the songs.
Most used service in those countries that has spotify available. Has app for all common devices out there. Has a few songs for many rare groups. Deezer has a few less, but instead has more songs for the artists. Has a native Linux application. If you don’t care so much about the quality of the songs, you would use Spotify. It also have 320kbps, but it looks like it have alot less songs that uses that Bitrate than Deezer.
I love reggae and Rdio doesn’t offer much rare reggae groups though. Hard to find songs from specific groups that aren’t so famous yet. Many Swedish groups has 1-3 songs available in Rdio, but in Spotify or Deezer there is usually 2-3 albums of same artist.
Not sure why you should use Rdio instead of other music service.
Only available in a handful of countries. Using adobe air to make the application to work in Linux. and adobe air is abandoned. Bad buffering of the songs you are listening online. Just a tunnel will cut off the music for few seconds before it starts again. You don’t have this issue in Deezer or Spotify.
If you want high quality and doesn’t care so much what everyone else is using, then you should use Deezer. Spotify is still most popoular service, but lower quality of the songs though. I’m not sure when I would recommend Grooveshark, Rdio or Wimp before the other two.
Both Deezer Spotify have a limit to install on 3 devices at the same time for using it in offline mode. Both services has a very active Android app that updates often. Costs the same amount of money.
My daughter that is 12 years old, thinks it’s easier to navigate on Deezer and find music.
If I would recommend one service, I would use Deezer. Just because of better quality of the sound.
