Spotify is increasing its pricing for all subscription tiers in the UK and Europe

Expect to pay more for Spotify in June.

Don't use any Music streaming service, I just buy the music and then play it on my phone or through my Plex Server.

That way I don't have to deal with price increases, loss of service when I lose internet etc.

My sister does use Spotify though and she has already said she may look at cancelling and just buy the music herself.

I have told her to do it, because it works out cheaper overall if you are just listening to about 10 albums mainly, plus there is YouTube as well.

You do know that you can download your playlist on Spotify and listen to it offline? Ie, even if your internet goes out?...

Does Tidal have the same selection? I don't like Spotify but I don't know what else to use.

They tend to run pretty steep discounts quite often, so I suggest you just try. Tidal's library is better for some genres, Spotify's for others, but Spotify is overall better library wise.

I've bounced between Spotify and Tidal since Tidal has had a deal like "3 euros for 3 months" occasionally. I do tend to return to Spotify since I prefer their recommendation algorithm and third party clients (librespot based clients are nice for in home streaming music), but Tidal is a fairly good service.

Both of their official clients are pretty similar in my opinion, and I don't like either.

Tidal has a collection of hand picked well-mastered albums, which sound great. Though Spotify's high quality compression is good as well, so good quality is available there as well as long as you listen to right albums. But there are no search tools for it.

Pretty sure you can look at Tidals library without paying, just get 30 seconds low quality.

Tidal sound quality is vastly superior and that alone is worth it to me. It's got a massive selection of songs. Probably more than spotify. But it's not as varied content as spotify so it's all up to what you listen to. I'm pretty happy with my metal music selection. Rarely run into something I can't find on it. When I do run into it half the time Amazon music doesn't have it either so I'd guess spotify probably wouldn't. But I never used spotify personally so can't confirm.

Almost the same library, and far far FAAAR superior audio quality. If you were rich, they have a HiFi subscription where you get the best you can get for streaming quality and makes spotify sound drab. That is for the true audiophiles though.
