This might be deemed a bit of a boring topic, yet I would disagree because we can learn things from what we discuss.

Recently I have started listening to music stored on one of my Google Drive accounts, commonly before that I would listen to Amazon Music or YouTube but I have gotten bored of the limited playlists. When I was younger, back in the day when winAMP and Windows Media Player was kings - I listened to music stored locally on my PC.

Over the years my MP3 collection made its way onto my phone(s), however, I barely stored any on previous Android smartphones. Mostly due to times changing and the fact at work I wasn't able to listen to my own stuff.

As I mentioned above, I have put my collection onto a Google Drive, which comes in handy when I use my iPhone (which is mostly for business/private calls). I downloaded 'CloudPlayer' on my Android device and this basically offers the same as my iPhone. I can store music locally, I just haven't yet.

I've got a wide selection from 60's classics, to most of the popular rock genres from the 90's and early 00's.

Today, I searched for a player on my PC that can be crossed over onto my laptop if I wished. I have a backup of my music stored on an external hard drive. 

I've tried two apps, the second of which "MusicBee" I've fallen in love with.

For a free application, it's jam packed with features including crossfading tracks and the ability to cut out the loss of sound at the end of tracks.

How are you listening to music these days?

Good topic :)

I still have a heap of CDs but rarely use them now. I still can't bear to part with them though. A few years ago I started saving them onto my PC and ended up with a very big library (although the earlier stuff I saved doesn't sound great on a hi-fi, which was probably down to my settings). I moved onto downloading music via Google. I've had a Spotify subscription for about a year now, which I also use at work so I definitely get my money's worth out of it. I've also discovered quite a few new bands using it too.
