youtube vanced still king

GregLu, 05 Oct 2021Perhaps Spotify and Apple Music are strong there?I'm from Canada and yea I use Spotify at least 2 hours out if my day almost every day

For Canadians only:
"Today, we’re excited to announce that we will begin rolling out background listening to music listeners in Canada, free of charge, beginning on November 3, 2021!"

They must have seen their userbase collapse after the demise of Play Music which was a decent streaming service with some unique selling points (e.g. uploading your own music to the library). YouTube Music is a pathetic mess. This is Google and the worst thing of it is the search function!!! When you search things it returns tracks, albums, artists, videos, all mixed up in a gigantic mess. I switched to Spotify and I have never looked back.
Is there a Google services that doesn't end this way? Apart from the basic gmail account it's all going this way: you use a Google services for a few years then they try to monetise it even more, make it unusable and you need to find other options. The list is endless....
