Spotify continues to grow

The number of paying Spotify subscribers rose from 2019 to 108 million in the second quarter, an increase of 31% compared to one year ago. That appears from Numbers that the streaming service has published today.

Spotify's monthly active listeners rose to 232 million, an increase of 29 percent year-on-year. The company's turnover rose to more than 1,5 billion euros, while the operating loss amounted to “only” 3 million euros. That is a considerable improvement on the loss in the same period a year earlier, which then amounted to 90 million euros.

Spotify itself expects to have between 120 million and 125 million subscribers for the premium service at the end of the year. By then the service may also be profitable.

Good fourth quarter for Spotify

Spotify made streaming service earlier this week Numbers known about the fourth quarter of 2018: the platform now has 207 million monthly users and for the first time the company is also making a profit.

The revenue of Spotify in the fourth quarter of 2018 grew by 30% compared to the same period last year. The streaming service is now available in 78 countries. The growth comes mainly from emerging markets such as Latin America and the Middle East.

The company also announced this week that it is taking over Gimlet Media and Anchor, two companies engaged in the production and marketing of podcasts. This means that Spotify not only has a large amount of professionally produced audio shows, but also a platform that allows everyone to record and publish a podcast. The streaming service wants that in the future more than twenty percent of the audio that is listened to consists of podcasts.

Apple Music: 2 million new users every month

Apple announced two new milestones at the SXSW conference in Texas: Apple Music now has 45 million users and the service is now growing at about two million users per month. Of the 45 million number, about eight million users are currently in the 'trial' period, so not all of them have a paid subscription.

With more than 70 million paying users, Spotify is still by far the largest streaming service and so far, the service has also grown faster than Apple Music. Seen in absolute numbers, however, the growth rates of both services are now coming close to each other.
