Music streaming services are available a penny a dozen. However, some are certainly better than others thanks to features and other perks offered. What really makes a music streaming app truly stand out is the content available. Read on to know which music streaming apps we have rated as the top iOS apps.

While YouTube focuses primarily on videos, users can choose to use the app for only streaming music if they wish. What is great about this app is that you receive a wide range of recommendations according to what you have listened to in the past. With a well organised interface, you can group your top songs under ‘Favourites’ so finding them in the future is much easier. YouTube also offers specially curated playlists that are automatically generated and sorted by genre, artist or album. YouTube can also be enjoyed ad free, by simply subscribing to YouTube Red.
