What do you use - Spotify or Apple Music? While Spotify appears to be the most popular option, Apple Music might take over this year! Fortune said, "The prediction is based on Apple Music’s reported monthly growth rate of 5%, which significantly outstrips Spotify’s 2% growth rate. Such figures are important not just because they indicate the popularity of the respective music-streaming services, but because they are used to calculate the royalties that the services must pay to music labels." On the global scale, however, Spotify is still far ahead.
