Leading iPhone music apps in the Netherlands 2018, by downloads Which music apps are downloaded the most via the Apple App Store in the Netherlands? YouTube Music had around 73,000 downloads in October 2018, ahead of Spotify with roughly 48,000. The two music streaming services together outperformed other music-themed apps that month, like music recognition app Shazam and SoundCloud. Early 2018, there were roughly 6.2 million Spotify users in the Netherlands.
Youtube Music: the “new” kid on the block?

YouTube Music, YouTube’s streaming service dedicated to music, launched in the Netherlands in August 2018 and saw an increase in its monthly download numbers shortly after that. In March 2019, the YouTube Music app was downloaded approximately 38,000 times through the App Store and roughly 255,000 times on the Google Play Store. This is probably because of the familiarity with the YouTube brand: in 2017 Millennials already spent roughly 20 percent of their total audio time on music services and 7 percent on YouTube.

Don’t stop the (online) music

Music streaming has become more popular in the Netherlands: in 2017, streaming services made up 109 million euros, 63.8 percent of the total revenue of the Dutch music industry. Spotify especially had a high reach. The smartphone application had an online reach of 3.4 million in the Netherlands in January 2019.
