For $9.99 per month, users can stream songs from Apple Music on MacOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS, Windows and even on Android devices. Before you decide to pay for Apple Music, you can try it first for free. Apple Music provides 3-month free trial for each newcomer to access all the content within its service.

2. YouTube Music (Google Play Music)

Google Play Music was launched in 2011, and will be displaced by YouTube Music by December, 2020. And YouTube Music has been available in the USA since May 2018.

Similar to Spotify, YouTube Music is an subscription based app. It also provides streaming availability for free users, but with some interruptions. When you're using the free version, it will stop the music for ads or the prompt to force you to upgrade to Premium. And the upgrade will cost you $9.99 on a monthly subscription.

Benefit from its video content, YouTube Music provides expansive video options which Spotify can't really catch up with at this time. When you search for a song, YouTube Music will offer you a vast library of official and unofficial music videos populate search results alongside audio files.

3. Amazon Music
