The great thing about streaming music is that you never have to worry about storage space being full on your device since you never store anything on your device. And that is what you get from most music streaming apps; the ability to listen to your favorite jams whenever you want. Well, as long as you have internet access.
Some music apps allow you to store music on your device that you can listen to even when you are offline. There is some limitation as to the amount of music you can keep stored offline, but still, it is better than not having to listen to your favorite music just because you lack internet access.
