The music industry has undergone rapid changes in the last few years, with digital streaming making music more accessible. But as we get access to an infinite amount of music, it is also becoming harder to pinpoint what music we like, and especially why we like it. We strive to make streaming easy and accessible to everyone by offering a bundled streaming service for movies & series, music, audiobooks, sports, and games. However, understanding your own music preferences can be difficult, no matter how easy the streaming service is.

Our goal is to help you navigate the ever-growing music landscape and save you the time that is usually spent scrolling through endless amounts of playlists to find just the right one. While our Music Stations on make streaming music pretty simple, we thought it’s time for this fun and easy quiz for you to find out which type of music listener you are. All you need to do is take the quiz, count if you picked A, B, C, or D the most and find out below if you are a Trendsetter, Devotee, Explorer, or Nostalgic. Enjoy!
