I do YT as well, but just because I'm more familiar with it. I know there are ads in both of the free versions so it doesn't matter in that regard, I just don't want to learn how to navigate a new platform.
There's the algorithm factor that lets YouTube suggest the best stuff. The recommendation is one of its features that makes things easier when listening to music or even a lecture. Then yeah, there are the easy downloads, and you can also skip the ads.
