SPOTIFY vs AMAZON || Honest Review

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

Hey guys so here we are on the Amazon app right here and I think what I'm gonna do with this video is I'm gonna start off with what both of these platforms have and then I'm gonna move into what Amazon has that Spotify does not have and then I'm gonna move into

What Spotify has that Amazon does not have before you just jump into you know just getting one at random paying $10 a month for some random you know just pick one throw a dart board and say hey if we're gonna do Pandora before you do

That I think you want to watch this video and find out the the real details of each one so they have very specific really cool features that differ from one platform to the next so just between Spotify and Amazon in this video I'm

Gonna really dive in and talk about the coolest features I found I've used both of these for many years and so I think I found almost every really cool feature there is if you guys find any others definitely comment down below and let me

Know about them I love to learn about the new stuff I listen to music all the time and so Spotify and Amazon or something that I they're probably the most used apps I have before we get into the details I want to say if at any

Point in this video you find it helpful or useful or you enjoy the video please go down you don't have to do it right now but at any point in this video go down and click that subscribe button and click the like button so more people can

See this video and have access to this information so it's something that I think is really cool these features out there the Amazon features first of all you can you can you can connect it to anything that's Amazon so this is an

Obvious one but it's something that's different from Spotify so I had to mention it so if you have a fire stick TV if you have you know a Kindle Fire if you have anything you will have you know if you have Amazon echos you can connect

This to them so you can make the playlist right here so you make your playlist over in the playlist tab or whatever you can add music to your playlist you can make your radio stations whatever you want and then

You'll be able to play it on any of those devices without having your phone even nearby so it's way better than a Bluetooth speaker instead what you can do is you can just like I said make the playlist and then just talk to your echo

And have it play it for you another really cool feature I think this is actually more of a safety feature as well as a really cool convenience and that is having Amazon Alexa so just by saying Alexa see it pops up right there

And you can tell it to do all kinds of stuffs now how is this actually a safety feature I think this is really cool because if you're driving I do not use my phone when I'm driving I don't like texting and driving I think that's

Extremely dangerous and it's really dumb if you do that so so thing that it's way more useful if you have the stand in your car somehow you mount your phone you know anywhere so up on your up in your dashboard you have

Your GPS going as long as your screen is on you'll be able to talk to Amazon Alexa and literally just by saying Alexa see how sensitive that is it pops up every single time so you can tell it while you're driving to look up songs or

Change songs or whatever you want to do and so of course it's a very easy convenient way to look up songs while you're driving now more things they have is when you're listening to let's just go to like right now what is it's like

Moon taxi I'm listening to yeah so you can go and look up so many other things you can go to the shops oh there's shopping for them and this will be a whole bunch of different things it's well connected with the Amazon store so

You can buy music you can buy merchandise see is loading a little slow right now so we're not gonna go into that too much be get the main idea of something that Spotify does not have you can buy stuff

Right and the app here now what else they have there of course you can download it add it to the playlist blah blah blah but this is a really cool thing right here your customers also listen to so this is sort of like making

A radio station for you and it'll show you other stuff that you know people that listen to this song you you know you might also like these other song now okay so moving right along other things that Spotify does not have

This little reasons tab it's pretty convenient shows you stuff that you listen to recently which I mean Spotify to some degree does have that it's just a little bit different because it's really conveniently located right there

On the main page so another thing that Amazon has is if you go over to the tab Spotify doesn't have this put you can look at John Rizzo if you look at your music you can sort it by genres so if you want to look at your music that you

Downloaded and you want to listen to like rap today you can go and find you know rap and hip-hop whatever it'll have a categorized like that if you don't already have a playlist of that now I'm gonna say there's probably two more

Really cool features here one of them is if you're listening to music you can have a sleep timer and this is right over in your settings so you just go on down and boom right there is a sleep timer so if you're gonna like fall

Asleep and you like listening to music or white noise or whatever it is you can just have that playing set the sleep timer and it turns off at the specified time and very lastly this is one that I think is cool if you're driving home or

Something and you have your music playing in your car and then you walk in the door and like you don't want that party to stop you wanted to play on your Amazon echo or your fire stick TV or whatever you can hit this little casting

Icon up in the top right corner I don't have any devices connected now but what it'll do is it'll take whatever you were playing just cast it on to those devices so moving on to Spotify now I think this is

Probably my preferred platform I'll explain why there are so many cool features here and of course so you see some of my playlists right there I know it's whatever fresh big beats yeah I thought that was funny at the time

So this social and aspect is probably my favorite part of Spotify and this is essentially for several reasons so you can follow an artist so let's just find one random artist let's just say they're Bruce Springsteen first want to pop up

Right there so you can follow him and when you follow me you'll be able to find like the artist pick you'll listen to any music that they have if they put new music out you'll find out about it you can look at you know they're

Suggesting playlist of other artists that they like and so you find out you get more connected with your favorite artists so it's more of a personal connection that you have you can follow them as if you would on any other social

Media now so another thing with the social aspect you can also follow friends so let's just look at my brother right here I think I looked him up recently Nate O'Brien there he is so you can follow other people your friends and

When you're following them and so you can't really see it on the mobile app but when you're on the desktop application you can follow them and you can see what they're listening to in real time now if you personally are

Worried about people seeing when you listen to you can always go in a private session but what I like to do is if I get sick of my music I can go and look at my friends see what they're listening to and sometimes they're just my DJ for

The day they don't even know it whatever music they choose I will listen to sometimes this is a fun thing to do another thing you can do with following your friends is you can follow their playlist so you can have their playlists

Show up on your screen or if you go into your library down here and you look at playlists then you'll find you know whatever a lot of these are just like playlists of that so here's one right here so this is this is a friend that I

Had that listen to reggae he made this playlist and then I follow it so that I can see the music as he adds it another thing you can do so there's so much more potential here with with the social aspect of Spotify another thing you can

Do is have a collaborative playlist this is my favorite thing that Spotify has I have not seen it many other places and so what you can do is you can make a playlist and you can have other people join the playlist and make and add songs

As well so this is something I do with my sister and my cousin we can we have a playlist every Monday we add a new album because I know they have similar music and so I get sick of my music very quickly I listen to a lot of music and

When they add new stuff I know that it's gonna be good music because that we have the same taste but a lot of times it's different stuff that they found throughout the week that I wouldn't have known about okay so I'm just gonna kind

Of rush through the next few being taking a little while on this video so you can make a playlist radio that's a cool thing where you can essentially take any playlist you want and if you go up to the top corner hit the little

Three dots and you can add go to playlist radio so it's going to essentially make another playlist that's similar to your playlist in in the form of a radio station so just a cool way that they do that you can also connect

With Google home so another cool thing then is videos if you go over to like videos right there I don't have any videos but I guess you can watch music videos on there if you're into that you can also crossfade between songs so if

You're like DJing at your own party low-key you just want to have a playlist going and you don't want any downtime between songs it's right over in settings you can actually have like a 12 second or 5 second or whatever a

Crossfade where one song fades out the other one fades and it seems really cool and professional and definitely a cool feature they have you can also normalize volume so you don't have any song louder than the other ones you can have behind

The lyrics which is a cool thing they have is that it's just like a cool thing about Spotify that you can learn more about the music you're listening to you can also down here see devices available so you can cast it on to see here you

Can still cast on Amazon devices you can also cast on to so many other things Spotify is a very widely supported platform because of how large it is with over you know honestly almost 100 million users right now so guys there's

So many cool features I know I just this video is getting so long and out of control but you can have Waze navigation so Waze is sort of like a Maps it's cool people like it because it can show you like accidents and police and stuff and

So there is a direct indicator integration with Spotify where you can have Waze running on here while you're driving so you don't have them like interrupting each other in annoying way it's much more smooth and like almost

Seamless when you're driving you can also have your daily mixes so right here you'll see I think there's about six daily mixes and each one is going to be based on what you listen to in the past couple weeks so it'll be your daily mix

Everyday of changes and here's one unlike some jam band type stuff some with like all rock maybe some with some rap or classic rock whatever you listen to they're gonna make a daily mix for that which is a cool way to find more

Music that's similar to what you listen to lastly you have your heavy rotation up there which is a convenient way if you hop in your car and you want to listen to music right away again I don't like

Looking at my phone when I Drive so I would rather have something very quick and convenient I turn on my phone and it's right there the playlist that I listen to a lot so fresh pick beats that's like my most recent song so I'll

Just like put that on and I'll start driving away actually you know what I lied that was not the last thing one more thing that is extremely cool is the podcast you don't see this in Amazon music and it's something that I use a

Lot I think podcasts are a really really really cool way that you can learn or essentially listen to talk shows while you're driving or walking or whatever you're doing you can get news on here so some podcasts that you you won't find

Them anywhere in Amazon Amazon music unlimited at least you won't find them but these podcasts you can just like so you can see there's so many different things you got TED talks you got like daily news pop podcast let's see what

You got you got Joe Rogan you got some sports ones you got you know all these different podcast that people release all the time definitely a really cool feature of Spotify so guys that's what I have for you I hope you enjoyed this
