Late last night, Spotify hit version 5.0 for Windows Phone with an all new design. Although some people have mixed opinions on certain UI aspects, one thing for certain is that Spotify is a very popular music service for mobile.

The Xbox One lets users snap apps so that music can continue to play while you do others things on the gaming and entertainment console. Seeing as we now have Pandora for Xbox One in addition to Xbox Music, Spotify would seem like an ideal candidate.

Spotify has released an update for Windows Phone to bring its app on par with its Android and iOS offering.

Not happy with the Xbox Music platform? Take Beats Music or Spotify for as spin.

Xbox Music. It's more than just the app you love to hate right now on Windows Phone 8.1. It's also a music streaming and subscription service that spans nearly every device you own. It's available on Windows Phone, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Android, iOS, and the web. Xbox Music is the successor to the beloved Zune platform.

Right now I'm still happy with the overall Xbox Music service, even though I think there are a handful of ways Microsoft could greatly improve the service. That said, I acknowledge that the Windows Phone 8.1 app is still pretty bad. Though the Windows 8 app was terrible at one point, but now I'm very happy with it on Windows 8.1. So there's hope.

I've been getting a lot of questions about what are some other solid music streaming and subscription services available as an alternative to Xbox Music. I'm going to look at some of those alternatives to Xbox Music that make the most sense to those with a Windows Phone.
