App Annie, an analytics platform for apps, has put out a report for Q3 of this year that crowned Spotify as the number 1 music streaming service in the world on both Android and Apple phones.
Because Apple Music is still pretty new, it does not appear in any top 10 lists in the report at all, however, with Apple Musicís recent release for Android, it has the potential to gain some more subscribers on Android. Apple music can also potentially convert millions of customers who still listen to digital downloads via iTunes.
Pandora, dethroned by Spotify, now holds the #2 spot worldwide, followed by SoundCloud and TuneIn Radio tied for #3. Interestingly, Spotify does not hold the #1 spot in its home country of Sweden.
The report goes on to compare rankings of music services in major markets like France, Japan, Canada, UK, Sweden, and the US, among others.
Streaming services have exponentially grown in the past few years as the new way to listen to music. Apple Music has a long way to go before taking Spotifyís spot, a music platform thatís existed for more than 5 years.
I made me sick! Love it so much!
You do know that the undisputed king of content is Apple Music right? So much exclusive music it's hilarious when comparing to the others, who are only higher up because they have been around soooo much longer.
