Spotify just upgraded its family plan to make it much better value

The battle for music streaming supremacy hasn’t been decided just yet, but it’s increasingly starting to look like Spotify and Apple Music will be the two services angling for the top spot. While Spotify still has many more paid subscribers relative to Apple Music, Apple’s streaming service is growing at an impressive clip. The most recent data we have indicates that Apple Music already boasts more than 13 million paid subscribers, a pretty impressive feat for a service that was initially plagued with usability problems at launch. Spotify meanwhile has 30 million paid subscribers.

Spotify Growth

Apple Music is growing, but it’s not putting a dent in Spotify

Apple Music is growing, but it’s not putting a dent in Spotify

After a rocky start characterized by a clunky and inconsistent UI, Apple Music has seemingly hit its stride. Not even a year old, Apple’s streaming music service already boasts more than 13 million paying subscribers. And while one might reasonably assume that Apple Music’s tremendous gains in just a few months is bad news for Spotify, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

As it stands today, Spotify currently has more than 30 million subscribers. What’s more, Spotify VP Jonathan Forster recently explained in an interview with Reuters that Spotify has experienced an even faster rate of growth since Apple Music hopped on the scene last June.

If you’re one of the millions of people around the world who count themselves as Spotify users, we have some troubling news: it looks like Spotify recently suffered a security breach.

In other words, change your Spotify password immediately. More →

Spotify now boasts more than 30 million subscribers

Spotify now boasts more than 30 million subscribers

Apple Music appears to be doing quite well, with the latest figures indicating that the streaming service now has more than 11 million paying subscribers. That’s not too shabby for a relatively new service, especially one that launched with a number of usability issues and frustrating bugs.

Still, Apple Music has quite a bit of work to do if it wants to catch up to Spotify. Earlier today, Spotify CEO Daniel Elk fired off a tweet boasting that the popular streaming service now has more than 30 million paying subscribers. Impressively, this represents a 50% increase in subscribers from this past June when the company crossed the 20 million subscriber threshold.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek gives a candid take on his company’s battle with Apple Music

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek recently sat down for a Q&A session on Quora where the founder of the popular music streaming service answered a wide array of questions from users. For anyone who has followed the company closely, one of the reasons why it’s so beloved is that Ek and his team are bonafide music lovers who care just as much about delivering a superb listening and user experience as they do about the bottom line. In conjunction with this, Ek has historically been rather candid and upfront about most issues pertaining to Spotify.

That being the case, Ek’s Quora session was, as you might expect, refreshingly honest and informative.

Wefre is a Spotify for pirates that might actually be legal

When it comes to questionably legal streaming music services, they’re often more hassle than they’re worth. Not only do they typically lack the features of the major players like Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora, but there’s no telling when the DMCA notices will start pouring in, forcing you to abandon your playlists and find a new alternative.

Wefre, the latest of these services, might be the exception to the rule.
