About This Statistic

This statistic gives information on the number of monthly active subscribers to Spotify's music streaming service. As of June 2016, the music streaming platform officially reported 100 million active users worldwide, up from 75 million reported MAU in June of the previous year. Spotify is a music streaming service that offers digital audio content. Basic audio content can be accessed for free whereas premium user subscriptions enable users to access offline mobile content as well as listen to music without advertising. During March 2016, the company announced 30 million paying subscribers. Launched in 2008, Spotify originated in Sweden before expanding to European markets and the United States in 2011. Spotify’s U.S. launch was strongly marketed through Facebook, with the audio app profiting from the social listening integration via social media. With currently more than 39 million monthly active users, Spotify is one of Facebook’s most popular applications. The Spotify music app is currently used by 15 percent of smartphone users in the United States, ranking behind competitors Pandora and iHeartRadio. Part of Spotify’s appeal is the user-curated playlist, which can be shared publicly or between friends. More than half of Spotify users aged 20 years or under used Spotify playlists as their primary method of audio streaming while using the service.
