Spotify has 60 million active users, 15 million paid subscribers


Spotify has announced today that its total user base is now sitting at 60 million, 15 million of which are paying a monthly subscription fee. While there was no country-by-country breakdown, Spotify launched its music streaming service in Canada on September 30th “and has seen tremendous success,” according to a company representative.

While Taylor Swift isn’t the biggest fan of Spotify, the company noted on its blog that, “We had an amazing 2014 at Spotify and owe it all to you, the music fans who listen, discover, share and celebrate music and artists with us every day of the year.”

Spotify is available ad-free for $9.99 per month and has apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone (along with BlackBerry 10 through the Amazon Appstore), and also can be accessed through a browser.

The company announced last week that 52% of its user base is now on smartphones and tablets, and only 3% of its users listen via the web app.
