Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) streaming music service now has 38 million paid subscribers, up from 36 million in February, the company said on Monday. Spotify has over 71 million premium subscribers as of December 31, 2017.
Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, Eddy Cue, revealed the information at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
Launched in June 2015, Apple Music costs $9.99 for a standard plan, which gives customers access to 45 million music tracks on demand without advertisements.
Its music streaming market is dominated by players such as Apple Music, Google Play, France's Deezer and Simfy Africa, with only a few local operators such as mobile phone operator's MTN and Cell C with MTN Music+ and Black.
The service is available in two packages: one that holds no subscription fee, but users will have to bear with adverts, which Boller said equates to three minutes of ads per hour of streaming. Spotify users who have been using global accounts can change to SA in Spotify's settings, where the country now appears as an option.
Cue said that the combined subscriber of Apple Music and Spotify which is a rival company of Apple have more than 100 million subscribers. Google does not release paid subscriber numbers for its service, Google Play Music. Spotify is adding new subscribers at a 2% pace every month.
Apple didn't disclose how much it paid for Texture, which had raised at least $90 million since it was founded almost a decade ago as Next Issue.
The Spotify app is also now available in the Google Play Store for Android phones.
By experimenting with the tool, Line-In, it hopes to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that it can improve experiences for both listeners and artists. There is also a free tier.
