Spotify's subscriber numbers now lag behind Apple Music's in USA markets

Citing a source said to be a US-based distributor, Digital Music News claims that it has seen a report which details the latest figures of several music streaming services, including Apple Music and Spotify.

Three years after making its debut, it is being reported that Apple Music has surpassed Spotify's paid USA subscriber count. We don't have specific user numbers, but that distributor says that both Apple Music and Spotify now have more than 20 million subscribers in the U.S., with Apple Music slightly in the lead.

Apple de-throned Spotify even though both platforms have a little over 20 million subscribers. Spotify falls into the same bracket, but has now dropped into second place when it comes to popularity. Back in February, the publication reported Apple Music would surpass Spotify in US paid subscriptions if it maintained a growth rate of 5 percent.

Eyes and ears have been on Spotify for its major strides in the music streaming world. And the more credible Financial Times reports that the Apple Music subscriber base, at 21 to 21.5 million, is still slightly behind Spotify's, at 22 to 22.5 million. But subscriber numbers may not be the only place Spotify is lagging behind Apple. Apple Music, on the other hand, has only been around for three years.

Both services are said to have more than 20M U.S. subscribers, with Apple Music said to be "a hair ahead" ...

Now that Apple Music has overtaken Spotify in terms of paid subscribers in the United States, what could be next for the music streaming service. That's no small task, though Apple Music still has a long way to go if it wants to catch up globally.

For years, Spotify has been the number one service for paid subscribers who choose to listen to music that they pick themselves.
