Final ScoreScore /10
Google Play Music25.0
Tidal24.6

Summary

This was a pretty close battle. Google won the app design category hands down for their easy to use interface and ease of finding something to listen to.

Both Google and Tidal came to the table with some pretty strong features. Google’s slightly larger music catalog, explicit search filter, and 50,000 song uploads on the free tier slightly edged out Tidal’s HiFi music streaming.

Tidal won in the pricing category, because while Google offers a free tier, Tidal has discounts.

In the end, Google wins this Epic App Battles of Android and advances to the next round.

2nd Battle: Spotify vs. Slacker

Final ScoreScore /10
Spotify25.5
Slacker27.0

Summary

As much as it pains me to report this, down goes Spotify. The battle boiled down to the design differences. The Slacker team designed a drop-dead gorgeous application that is appealing, easy to use, and the menu transitions make navigation captivating. Spotify is still an amazing and well designed app with an abundant music selection but ultimately wasn’t as good as Slacker.  Slacker wins a close one.
