Spotify Statistics and Facts 2022

Here are a few of the most interesting Spotify statistics and facts I was able to dig up including user counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

What is Spotify?

Spotify sure has grown up in a relatively short period of time. It seems like only yesterday that the rumors were swirling about this foreign music service that was looking to enter the U.S. To this news, many of us rolled our eyes and said “why do we need another music streaming service?”

Well, after a decade stateside, it appears that a bunch of people made the decision that they did indeed need another music streaming service and Spotify was the one. 400+ million people are now actively using the service and they haven’t shown much let-up yet.

Spotify Facts

Here is pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about Spotify.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Spotify statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
