Spotify Has Become the World’s Most Popular Music Streaming App

Janko Roettgers, writing for Variety, presents data from App Annie which shows that Spotify’s Android and iOS apps are more popular than any other music streaming app worldwide.

Spotify was the mobile music streaming app on iOS and Android with the largest number of active users worldwide in Q3, according to the report. App Annie’s Mobile Music Streaming report shows Spotify’s app topping the usage and download charts in many countries around the world.

Roettgers notes that that Spotify has a much larger international footprint than Pandora. However, Pandora is only available to users in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand while Spotify is available in 58 markets around the world. Spotify also faces growing competition from local streaming services in India and France.
