Spotify is currently among the most hyped music streaming services in the market. It is also the most expensive one available, especially in India. In a market obsessed with value, subscribing to the most expensive service seldom makes sense, especially when there are more affordable and better options available in the market.

Spotify has some great alternatives available at much lower prices. Google has its YouTube Music service to offer whereas Apple brings its Apple Music service in several price categories. Then there's Amazon's Prime Music service while Indian-bred options such as JioSaavn and Gaana will appeal to the customers who care for value more than anything else.
