Apple Music
Apple announced its streaming music service, Apple, Music, has 38 million paid subscribers. That number increased by 2 million subscribers, or 5.6 percent, since last February.

This information was presented by Apple Internet Software and Service Senior Eddy Cue Senior Vice President at the annual SXSW event in Austin, Texas.

Currently, Spotify is still the music streaming service provider with the largest number of subscribers, amounting to 71 million, for its premium services.

Apple first launched Apple Music on June 30, 2015, seven years after Spotify was released on October 7, 2008. Unlike Spotify, Apple offers a free trial period of three months, before customers have to pay a subscription fee of US $ 9.99 per month.

Meanwhile, family packages require users to pay a subscription fee of US $ 14.99 per month for six users. Spotify offers a free package with advertising support that comes in the middle of the song playback.

The premium version of Spotify brings users unlimited number of songs, allowing users to enjoy music offline. Similar to Apple Music, Spotify premium services are also offered for US $ 9.99 per month.
