Yes, Clementine would always top iTunes in terms of ease of use, features and could easily be argued as the best macOS music player.
And this doesn’t means you have to give up iTunes. iTunes is the music application that we don’t have an option to avoid especially if you own an iPhone/iPod. Its the attitude of people that keeps iTunes safe because it gets the job done. In that scenario we don’t go around looking for better options.
Clementine is probably the best macOS music player
First of all, I just want to make sure that best music player means it looks shiny. To be precise, Clementine probably has the worst look of all the applications. The main reason people don’t use Clementine is because users don’t know it exists.
Clementine is the best solution which allows users to play music locally and integrate with a lot of music services. To get proper functioning of Clementine, moving all music into Clementine would be the first step. This might seem a little tedious but trust me its worth the effort and time. Even the first time you open the music player, a prompt will appear to add music.
The integration of third party services includes a big list of services like Spotify, Grooveshark, Last.fm and many more. In addition to that, Google Drive files could also be played in Clementine.
Also users can scan any number of folders in Clementine. Also, every time Clementine is opened, it will scan for new files. Irrespective of the location of the music, Clementine will add them to the music library.
There are a couple of features that users might love seeing around like customization of menus, themes & appearance settings. Other than that, Clementine seems like the place to get a good hold and use of all your personal music.
