When people think about music streaming services, they most likely think about Spotify and Apple Music (perhaps Pandora and YouTube). While it’s true the two former are the largest, the third-most used, Amazon Music, is making strides.
Amazon Music Reaches 55 Million Active Streaming Subscriptions
Amazon Music now has 55 million subscriptions — which includes the service’s free tier — placing it in third place behind rivals Spotify and Apple Music.
Meanwhile, Spotify and Apple Music boast almost 175 million paid subscriptions. Moreover, Spotify claims 248 million monthly active subscribers, which also includes those listening through its free, ad-supported platform.
Amazon writes in a blog post the following:
“Amazon Music kicks off 2020 by revealing the streaming service has reached more than 55 million customers globally, with subscriptions to Amazon Music Unlimited growing by more than 50% last year alone. This announcement comes after a year of incredible growth around the world: Amazon Music has grown nearly 50% year-over-year across the U.S., UK, Germany, and Japan and has more than doubled in our newer countries such as France, Italy, Spain, and Mexico.”
