The announcement of Apple's music bumpin' HomePod means you might be reconsidering which streaming service you use. To be honest, going from one to another might not be that big of a leap. Most streaming services do share a variety of similarities. They work on whatever smartphone you own, usually support streaming to speakers through Airplay or Google Cast, and its premium service lets you stream music on-demand and save it for offline listening.

Of course, not all music services are created equal. What might work with your Sonos may not play nice with your Amazon Echo, and what your upcoming HomePod will play isn't exactly third-party software.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Chances are you've signed up to at least one streaming service -- but are you making the most of the best-quality music on offer? A quick audit of your apps can boost both streaming and downloaded bit-rates, so you're always assured of the highest fidelity audio flowing through your pricy headphones to your eardrums. Which means you hear more of the music and a little less of the noise that can accompany lower quality music files.

Apple Music's big selling point is Beats 1, the radio station that has live DJs and shows. Up until recently, you could only access the shows live which was a pain if you lived in the wrong time zone. Now, you can get to replays, but they're hidden away a bit.

When you first set up Apple Music, it asks you to input some genre favourites and pick some favourite artists. When you're first launching the app and want to check things out, it's pretty easy to ignore that and move on. Thankfully, you can head back and redo the configuration.
