I plead guilty of being a Spotify addict. No second thoughts about that. Spotify offers the best free music experience in the history of the smartphone, giving users access to over 30 million of songs with amazing audio quality of up to 320kbps and other features such as playlist creation, music discovery, organization tools, and offline mode.
One thing is certain, though, after hooking up over 40 million users and 10 million subscribers worldwide, there’s a truth – and oh, most evidently- in the rumor that Spotify is now the world’s most popular music streaming service.
The service has also acquired 10 million paying subscribers since its launch in 2008. There are over 1.5 billion playlists available, collectively creating or updating over 5 million playlists each day.
Spotify revealed that with more than 235 million streams, the most streamed song of all time is Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” Meanwhile, the most streamed male artist of all time is Eminem, followed by David Guetta, who is also the most followed artist. In the female category, Rihanna tops the list as the most streamed female artist with Katy Perry next in line.
