I've got Google Play family mainly because of ad-free youtube. My kids use YouTube heaps and I was concerned about the adverts they were being exposed to.

I have Spotify as my phone plan comes with it. We also have Google play for ad free you tube and music for the rest of the tribe.

I switched from the Spotify family plan to Google Play when Spotify put their prices up. The inclusion of YouTube Red is what swung it for me. We watch a LOT of YouTube in our household so getting rid of the ads and being able to download videos for offline viewing is awesome. With Google Play, you can upload your entire music collection to the cloud so you can stream it anywhere, even if you don't have enough storage on your phone for all of it. Their library is about as extensive as Spotify, and like Spotify, you can download playlists to your device for offline listening, which I do so I don't use any data. I've adjusted my settings to only stream on wifi and not to download unless on wifi.

Listened to Tidal for a couple of months, really enjoyed it. It also includes music related documentaries. Plus I understand that more of the royalty money goes to the artists than the other streaming services.

 

Tidal offers two versions, the standard one is of similar music quality to Spotify, Google etc and the top version is lossless so great for audiophiles. http://tidal.com/nz.
