Services used for music streaming in Norway 2020

Which music streaming service is the most used in Norway? A survey from 2020 found that the premium version of Spotify was by far the most popular service among Norwegians. Nearly two-thirds of respondents stated to listen to music via the premium version. YouTube was the second most used, at one-third of respondents. The free version of Spotify came third.

What type of access do Norwegians prefer?

According to the survey, over half of the Norwegian population had premium subscriptions or bundles to digital music services. Thus, paying for streaming music was the most preferred type of access in 2020. Freely available or trial versions of music platforms were popular among 37 percent of respondents. Only a few people stated to stream music not at all.

How much do Norwegians stream music?

In 2020, more than 50 percent of individuals interviewed in Norway streamed or downloaded music the same amount as the previous year. Almost one quarter of respondents even indicated to have used online music services more. In total, 57 percent of Norwegians streamed or downloaded music on a weekly basis.
