Abstract: Music consumption is being mediated by streaming platforms such as Spotify and YouTube. These platforms suggest how people should listen and interact to music, through their user-interfaces and their algorithmic system of recommendation, which can be accepted or rejected from their users. This research argues about how Spotify and YouTube’s user-interfaces design proposes an interaction with music and the perspectives from Ecuadorian students and young adults related to the platforms’ proposal. This study is part of a doctoral thesis that is being developed at Pompeu Fabra University.
