YouTube adds new student plans for its premium subscription services

YouTube adds new student plans for its premium subscription services If you're trying to figure out a solid long-term play to juice sign-ups to a subscription service, hooking people as early as possible is a smart way to go, providing you can sign them up early and keep them over the long term, of course. We’re seeing a number of services go this route, with YouTube being the latest to start offering discounted student plans for the ad-free version of YouTube as well as its subscription music service. Spotify started offering half-priced student plans a few years ago, and then last year added a student bundle that includes Hulu and Showtime. Apple Music went down the same route in 2016.

Spotify Wrapped elicits joy and shame in equal parts. The year-in-review tool from music streaming giant Spotify was rebranded last year as Spotify Wrapped, a Christmassy nod to the end of the year and your listening habits throughout it.

Spotify reveals which artists, tracks and genres have been streamed the most in 2018, both across the board and for each individual user. Although if you have a shared account, you and your awful music taste have the good fortune of being able to hide behind unassuming friends and family. Talk about throwing people under the bus…

Exclusive: Apple Music is coming to Amazon Echo speakers week of Dec. 17 Amazon and Apple will make the streaming service available to current Apple Music subscribers or potential customers starting the week of Dec. 17. As a subscriber to Apple Music, you always had workarounds for streaming Apple’s service through an Echo, notably by pairing your phone or tablet via Bluetooth to the speaker.

The enormously popular feature shows you a host of other interesting (and incriminating) nuggets of information about your listening habits. I, for example, am mortified to reveal I started off 2018 listening to Flo Rida’s My House. Dear oh dear.

Plus, there’s a quiz, which asks you to guess, for example, how many minutes you spent listening on the music-streaming platform this year, before unveiling the answer. It’ll also tell you, percentage-wise, how this compares to last year’s efforts. Intrigued? Read on to find out how to get in on that Spotify Wrapped goodness...

Spotify Wrapped 2018: Most streamed

As well as giving you an insight into your own listening habits, Spotify reveals the most streamed artists of the year worldwide. For 2018, Drake is up first, with 8.2 billion streams THIS YEAR ALONE. Figures like these also see the Canadian rapper take home the title for most streamed artist ever.

Ariana Grande, meanwhile, takes home the crown for most streamed female artist, whose recent drop of breakup hit Thank u, Next, has contributed some 220 million streams to the tally.

This year has also seen information regarding podcast streaming unveiled; Serial fans will nod knowingly in response to news that crime and mystery was the chart-topping podcast genre.

Anyway. Everyone knows the frenzy is driven by our need for introspection. So go forth and explore your music habits of 2018 via Spotify Wrapped. Although take its analysis with a pinch of salt; though I don’t doubt my Top Artist of 2018 was Kanye West, I’m more than a little sceptical that the “pleasure was all [his]”.

Apple Music now streams on Echo speakers.
Apple Music support on Echo speakers is here earlier than expected. Users in the United States have been able to connect their Apple Music account in the Alexa app and play music through Amazon's line of smart speakers, according to 9to5Mac. The feature wasn't scheduled to be available until December 17th. Once you've linked Apple Music with Alexa, you'll be able to set Apple's streaming service as your default music source so Alexa will play songs from it by default. Alexa will have access to your personal library and playlists that you create and offers playback controls while you're listening.
