There are some alternatives such as Apple Music, Deezer and YouTube Music. But Spotify still remains the favourite among audio streaming services because of its large music library.
“Listeners enjoy Spotify because we introduce them to music to fall in love with—including music they might not have found otherwise. In fact, Spotify drives 16 billion artist discoveries every month, meaning 16 billion times a month, fans listen to an artist they have never heard before on Spotify. We’re proud of that and are actively refining our algorithms to enable even more fan discoveries of new artists each month,”
Spotify said in a blog post.
Currently, the service is available in 93 countries and has 345 million monthly active users. Spotify now has 144 million subscribers with over 60 million tracks, and 4 billion playlists to choose from. Moreover, users can easily download their favorite music and podcasts on their mobile devices, tablets, and laptop.
The music streaming platform got popular in the midst of the pandemic. The company also reported that global listening hours had surpassed pre-pandemic levels as users tune into more music and podcasts.
