Spotify’s Q4 2021 earnings call shares how many artist and podcast creators are on the audio streaming platform.
As Spotify continue to face scrutiny over The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, the streaming service’s Q4 2021 results show strong growth in users and subscribers, as well as highlighting the new features brought to users and artists during the quarter. You can also find the full fourth quarter 2021 earnings report here or the webcast Q&A here.
As announced during the Q4 2021 earnings call, at the end of 2021 Spotify had 11 million creators. This is 3 million more than Spotify reported just one year ago at their Stream On event. This includes both artists and podcast creators. Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek believes Spotify will one day house 50 million active creators, saying:
Think of it as 50 million small-and medium-sized businesses that we can support by giving them the infrastructure and resources to grow. This evolution will take time, but I know some of you are wondering what this means in the near term. And the work there is already well underway.Daniel Ek, CEO, Spotify
