Apple Music is thought to be second place as ‘music streaming services with the most subscribers’. Comparing the number of paying subscribers each service has can be inaccurate, as not every platform shares their numbers every quarter. As of June 2020, estimates pegged Apple Music as having 72 million subscribers.

With new features constantly added, as Spotify expand into more markets, this number is only expected to grow.
