Counting down the top 4 music players for Windows 10…
OK, so you got a new laptop for Christmas. You decided that you wanted a music service that actually works. So you do some research and end up with a hack job. Hoping that you didn’t ruin your brand new spanking laptop so soon, you check what you installed. You see that the music player that was “the greatest thing since chocolate milk” has installed not one, not two, but three or more viruses on your brand new computer…
That’s why we decided that it was time to show you what the best, safest music players are for Windows 10. So you can get the ultra level of performance and quality without installing a hack job.
HERE ARE THE TECHMAN TOP 5 MUSIC PLAYERS FOR WINDOWS 10
1. Groove Music
Why are you choosing Microsoft’s default as the best? Why does it always have to be built in? To put it simply, even though Groove is a Microsoft app, it is the best Music player that you could have. What makes it so amazing is the fact that with a Groove Music Pass ($9.99/month) you can get every single song in the whole history of the world (well about 99.99% of songs), without any advertising. Groove also boasts unlimited skips, offline downloading, and the same experience on all devices. And since it is a Windows Universal App you can get it on your Windows Phone. There are even versions of Groove for iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Android. Take your music anywhere and get in the Groove!
Spotify is one of the most personalized music experiences out there. The user interface is sleek, modern, and simple. The playback quality is very good. The premium service (which is offered to users in an ad at least 10 times a day) boasts offline downloading to devices, unlimited skips, and stunning audio quality. The platform does have drawbacks however, mainly the ads. Ads are played at least every 5-10 songs. Some of the ads are even offensive to some individuals. Another drawback is the “failing” social platform that Spotify introduced. Although the social platform is a good idea, users seldom use it.
Songza is an amazing little company that gives you the key to having music suited for every aspect of your day. Whether your singing in the shower or taking a sunny stroll, Songza will always come through with personalized stations that blend the best music for the moment. Currently Songza has a universal Windows 10 app that works on Windows 10 Desktop and Windows 10 mobile. The service boasts unlimited skips and stunning music quality. The personalization, however, is what gives Songza it’s place in the countdown this week. It should be noted however that Songza has recently been acquired by Google and will be merging into Google Music on Januray 31, 2016.
4. Google Music
It wouldn’t be natural for Google to miss an opportunity to make money. Google invests heavily in services that make money and/or show signs of going viral. Google Music is a solid music system that incorporates personalization and playlists. The UI itself is not as great as it may appear to be. The online web-based system often glitches on Microsoft Edge. Overall, you would expect better from Google.
