Apple Music or Spotify

To industry leader Spotify is still in the growth, the Swedish streaming service has paid hundreds of millions of listeners. Still about the same — use the service for free. However, some progress from Apple is still there — in individual regions. For example, in July of last year Apple Music ahead of Spotify in the United States by number of active subscriptions.
