Apple Music's US subscriber count overtakes Spotify, says source
Updated : April 05, 2019 11:16 PM IST
Apple's service had 28 million subscribers as of the end of February compared with Spotify's 26 million paid subscribers, the person said.
Both companies charge $9.99 a month for subscriptions, though Spotify still has more total US listeners than an Apple thanks to an ad-supported free tier of its service with fewer features.
Neither Apple nor Spotify disclose country-level listener data, and both firms declined to comment. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported that Apple has overtaken Spotify on the metric.
