With a worldwide community of over 159 million users, Spotify, according to the company, offers users the choice of a free ad-supported service, or an ad-free Premium subscription service. Apple SVP of internet Software and Services Eddy Cue stated that the Apple music has gained two million new subscribers in a month at an interview at South by Southwest festival.
Here is what Spotify is about, and how it compares to different music-streaming platforms. A subscription for Apple Music and (Google) Play Music also costs Euro 5 per month.
In its much-anticipated filing to go public last month, Spotify revealed revenue growth was outpacing costs, suggesting the music streaming service was striking deals with the music industry that defeat the central tension in its business model. Google Play Music doesn't release information on its number of paid subscribers.
In addition to paid subscribers, Apple also lays claim to 8 million users that are now in a three-month free trial period. Apple Music does not offer an ad-based version and instead uses a three-month free trial to lure customers.
The deal announced on Monday puts Apple in control of a service often described as a Netflix of magazines.
