    I'm an all things Apple kind of guy. Tried google but I liked music better.

    I subscribe to both services. Both have their advantages. I seem to lean more towards Google Music but I simply think that's because I've used it 4X longer than Apple Music. I mainly got Apple Music because to share with my wife it wasn't much more a month and she wanted it so.

    We use Apple Music. Mostly because of the family plan. Each of us can have our own playlists and music.

    I'm in my free trial of Apple Music, but I am liking it so far! Of course with google play u get youtube ad free! And whenever u cancel your subscription and go back to it later, even months later, all your songs and playlists are still there! I'm not sure if Apple music does the same!

    I'm in the trial as well but hadn't thought about what would happen to my iCloud Library, playlists and local iTunes..... excellent point and something I'll research later tonight.

    I've looked at Google music and it's pretty good but I think it comes down to the experience and Apples Music app edges it for me

    Definitely let me know what you find in your research! I may just keep apple music after the trial period, but we shall see! I have until July 27, 2017 to decide!

    Family plans are supported in Google Play Music, but the setup isn't quite as good. But honestly, YouTube Red is worth it for me. There is no equivalent perk on Apple Music.

    I keep Google Music for the free YouTube Red, the Music experience has been ok but not something that thrills me. Apple Music has been poor for me, I've had a hard time discovering new music I like, it just seems to have a hard time learning my tastes, though maybe I'm too eclectic.

    What I've found odd, is that currently my favorite of the music services is Amazon's. It seems to be the easiest for me to find new music I like. I also like the way it shows the song lyrics and highlights the current lyrics that are being sung.

    I think Google Music is better, anyway. I enjoy the playlists and I find more music that I like on it. I also think the App is easier to use. I had Apple Music for three months and I just wasn't a fan. Then when you throw in YouTube Red for free, the value for the Google plan increases and Apple has nothing to match that.

    That is how I feel.. I have tried them all but GPM is where I sit. Especially since at home I like to watch YouTube when on the PC via the 2nd screen .

    Google music comes with YouTube red. I have Spotify, google music and Apple Music. I have google music which I don't use because of YouTube red. I like Spotify because of the special playlists that they have. Apple Music I have had for many years and didn't think it was all that intuitive.

    One major advantage to Apple Music is that it's integrated with Siri.

    We're talking about the streaming service, called Music.
    It exists since June 30, 2015.

    I tried AM when I first switched from android but I have had GPM forever and I like it way more than AM. Another plus for me is that it comes with YouTube Red and I like not having ads when watching YouTube. For this reason alone I won't give up my GPM. I just wish that GPM was integrated with Siri and SoundHound.

    This! Never used Google Play save for a trial while using a Nexus 6P over a year ago.

    In all honesty... I've used Google Music for the freebies that it offers sometimes and I end up downloading those and importing them to my iTunes library. But I've been a fan of Apple Music since it's release and totally agree with what @TwitchyPuppy stated.

    I did the trial for Apple Music and it seemed more clumsy. I've used GPM for a few years, starting when I had an Android, and the main advantages over AM for me are free YoutTube Red and the being able to go to the desktop website on my work computer. I have unlimited data but that can be a huge plus for anyone who cannot access their employers wifi, doesn't have unlimited data, and can't install apps on your work computer.

    Through iTunes, can you access Apple Music?

    The only negative for me is that GPM on iPhone doesn't allow you to access your Podcasts, i guess Apple wants you to use iTunes for that

    If you're open to it, Spotify is better than all the others, IMO. I have used Google Play Music, Spotify and Apple Music for decent lengths of time. The Spotify app is so far ahead of the rest in terms of capabilities and organization (pre-made playlists are leagues ahead on Spotify). However, I am using Apple Music right now strictly due to the family pricing and the rest of my family liking Apple Music. If it was only me, I would 100% be using Spotify.

    Google Play Music all day! Free YouTube Red is a huge plus like everyone else said. I also don't want to leave my 675 song playlist behind....

    I'm in a free trial right now for Apple Music, due to my recent purchase of a pair of Beats X. It's fine, but honestly, once it's over, I will continue with my use of Amazon Music. Just another benefit of a Prime membership.
