Spotify has shared some interesting statistics about its streaming music service — claiming that the majority of of Spotify music streaming takes place on phones and tablets, rather than the good ol’ fashioned PC. The company shared this data with brands and advertisers during CES 2015, which took place last week.
According to the company, the majority of listening takes place on phones and tablets, 42% and 10% respectively. The Spotify desktop application accounts for 45% of listening, while the web player accounts for 3%. Spotify currently has over 50 million monthly active users and 12 million paying customers (including me). Spotify allows you to listen to artists, albums and playlists in shuffle mode while on your phone. Or you can choose a ready-made playlist to suit your mood. On tablet and computer, you can play any song at any time with a premium subscription.
Spotify is available on all major platforms, including Windows Phone. The app for Windows Phone last received an update in October of 2014 and the service is available for free (ad-supported), or $9.99 a month for premium, which allows you to download music and listen to it offline — perfect for those areas with limited to no connectivity.Further reading: Microsoft, Music, Spotify, Windows 8.1, Windows Phone
