Listen to music and watch videos with the latest smartphone technology.

From live sporting events to your favorite rock and roll album, streaming audio and video content has become simple with today’s advances in mobile technology. But what are the best ways to stream? Here, we’ll explore a few apps worth digging into.

Quick answer: Between Spotify, TuneIn Radio, and SoundCloud, smartphone users have lots of options for streaming their favorite music. Smartphone users can also easily stream videos with apps like YouTube, Netflix, and TV channel apps.

Smartphones are an audiophile’s best friend. Several apps offer access to a seemingly endless library of music, and most let you listen to your favorite tunes in high-quality formats for a truly immersive experience. Consider these titles:

  • Spotify: This streaming giant is popular for good reason: it provides nearly all the music the typical listener could want to hear in one convenient library, and it charges only a fraction of what it would cost to actually purchase all of the music you listen to.
  • TuneIn Radio: Connect to more than 100,000 online AM/FM radio stations with this convenient app, which is an especially excellent choice for users seeking a way to stream live sports coverage and news.
  • SoundCloud – Music & Audio: A massive online community, SoundCloud is a go-to platform for independent musicians. Artists regularly upload new music, and discovery features – such as suggested tracks and charts – make it easy to find new tracks you’ll love.

As smartphones become more powerful, mobile video streaming has become much easier than it would have been just a few years ago. Here are three ways to stream video on both Apple and Android devices.

Smartphone users can watch their favorite TV shows and movies on video subscription apps like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.

  • YouTube: Like SoundCloud, YouTube features unique content generated by millions of users. You’ll find everything from convenient how-to videos to news productions, and beyond.
  • Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, etc.: These apps, which require subscriptions, each offer a unique selection of titles, but they all provide a similar experience: the ability to stream movies and TV shows at your leisure.
  • TV channel apps: Whether you’re a Lifetime addict or a dedicated History Channel viewer, you’re in luck, because these channels – and many more – offer their own apps featuring an array of relevant content. You’ll often have access to extra content based on your TV provider as well.
