Spotify and other music streaming services

I was looking through the T&Cs there. It reads to me that if you’re paying for Prime that Amazon music is included for UK residents. Looks like I would have get a separate sub here to use it

I think that it isn’t but I could be wrong, I usually am.

The unlimited service might be different again :man_shrugging:t2:

Spotify has audiobooks now and a decent selection of them looking at the catalogue


Spotify has started to automatically switch from my phone to my laptop when I listen on my phone. It happens randomly every few minutes but it is making the app unusable. Ive tried deleting the app and reinstalling it but that hasn’t worked. Looking online and it seems to be a common enough problem with no clear solution. Anyone else ever have this issue?

Clear all the saved bluetooth connections

From my phone do you mean?

They seem more expensive versus audible ?

Wonder why they can put albums up there as part of the membership but don’t do same with audiobooks which have a pay per use fee?

Looks like it… Don’t think I ever bough an audible outside of the monthly sub

They must be paying a massive fee for them you’d think… Based on scale they would put a serious dent in audible if they adopted that model

I’ve often bought the 3 for 18euro on audible, good value

But I’m listening to The Stand at the moment, 47 hours :grimacing:

How much per book around? Libraries are incredibly underused. Every book you could ever want for free. You can even order brand new ones in to your local library from any other library in the country and they text you when it arrives

Dearer than you’d pay for a book in a shop

I go to library with kids all the time it’s great… You can get audiobooks for free with library too
