The Power of Streaming: How Music Apps Changed the Way We Consume Music

The power of streaming: how technology has changed the way we consume music.


With the advancement of technology, the way we consume music has changed drastically. Nowadays, with a simple click, it is possible to access millions of songs around the world, without having to have a physical collection at home. This is the power of streaming, a music service where users can listen to their favorite songs online without having to download them.

Music applications, such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music, are responsible for this revolution in the music industry. The user can create personalized playlists, discover new artists and have access to a huge catalog of songs, all in the palm of their hand. And the best part: all this without ads.


Another great benefit of streaming is ease of access. Before, it was necessary to go to a CD store or download music online, and this often took hours to happen. Now, with streaming, all you need is a smartphone and an internet connection to have access to the entire available music collection.

Furthermore, streaming also has advantages for artists. With the possibility of promoting their work through these applications, many artists are able to expand their fan base and have their work recognized around the world.

However, as in any area, there are controversies. Many artists argue that streaming pays little for royalties and that, in some cases, it doesn't reflect the true value of the music. On the other hand, many users prefer to use streaming rather than having to pay a high price to download or purchase a physical album.


Either way, it's undeniable that music apps have changed the way we consume music. With the ease of access, the available catalog and the customization of playlists, streaming is here to stay and has transformed the way we discover and enjoy music.
