According to a recent report from app analytics firm App Annie, Spotify just became the most popular music streaming platform in the world (in terms of revenue, active users, and downloads). And App Annie predicts Spotify will only widen the margin further in the months to come. Overall, Spotify has seen a surge in the number of paying subscribers and active users over the last years. As of June 2015, the company had 20 million paying subscribers and more than 75 million active users across 58 markets. Compared to 10 million paying subscribers and 40 million active users at the end of May 2014. In addition, it was disclosed that the company had paid more than $3 billion in royalties, including more than $300 million in the first three months of 2015 alone. Lastly, Spotify was named an 2015 AlwaysOn Global 250 Top Private Companies winner and featured on 2015 CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list.
