The streaming war between Spotify and Apple Music is heating up as Spotify has confirmed that they have reached 40 million paid subscribers! Where does Apple Music stand at? The tech giant only has 17 million.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek tweets:
40 is the new 30.

Here’s where it gets a little more interesting though. Spotify announced back in March 2016 that they had 30 million paid subscribers. That means within the last six months, they’ve added 10 million more. In the last six months for Apple Music, they’ve only added 4 million paid subscribers.
So not only is Spotify kicking so much ass with it’s paid user base now, but it’s also growing faster than Apple Music. And by a long shot.
