Apple Music Now In Far More Countries Than Spotify


(Hypebot) – Whether or not Apple Music has been more successful than Spotify may be up for debate, but whether it has been more geographically pervasive isn't. Indeed, at most recent count Apple Music is present in fifty-nine more countries than Spotify.

Apple has done a great job making Apple Music available throughout the world. As a matter of fact, Music Business Worldwide notes that the service is now in 59 more countries than Spotify.


While we haven't received any info lately as to the number of subscribers that's translated into (the last figure was 10 million after 6 months, half that of Spotify), it does give Apple Music a huge leg up over the competition. It's true that many of the countries have small populations, but it all ads up when the number is as large as it is.

This is good news if you're an artist, since Apple Music is more likely to get a paying subscriber than just about any other service, thanks to the fact that they already have credit cards on file.
