Interface analysis of two different music streaming services (English)
Abstract [sv]

Musikmarknaden har förändrats mycket de senaste åren. Många nya streamingtjänster har dykt upp på senare år och tiotals miljoner använder dessa tjänster idag (Borja et al., 2015). Användbarheten är en viktig aspekt för att användarna ska kunna använda dessa tjänster på ett tillfredsställande sätt.

Denna studie undersöker två olika musiktjänsters gränssnitt ur ett användbarhetsperspektiv. 20 studenter från KTH besvarade en enkät om deras tidigare användning av musiktjänster. Sedan deltog studenterna i en ”Think Aloud”-undersökning där de fick utföra ett antal uppgifter på tjänsterna och där vi dessutom mätte effektivitet genom att ta tid samt beräkna antalet klick för varje uppgift. Slutligen fick studenterna besvara ett antal frågor i en kort intervju.

Studien visade att båda tjänsterna visserligen hade funktioner som fungerade bättre än hos den andra tjänsten, men i slutändan var de mycket lika avseende användbarhet.

Abstract [en]

The music market has changed considerably in recent years and streaming has become one of the most popular ways to listen to music today. Many new streaming services have appeared and tens of millions of people use these today (Borja et al., 2015). Usability is important in order for users to be able to use these services in a satisfactory manner.

This study examines two different music service interfaces from a usability perspective. 20 students from KTH answered a questionnaire about their prior use of music services. Afterwards the students participated in a Think Aloud study where they performed a number of tasks on services and where we additionally measured the efficiency by taking the time, in addition to calculating the number of clicks for each task. Finally, students were asked to answer a number of questions in a brief interview.

The study shows that while both services had features that fared better in the study than for the other service, they were very similar when it came to usability.
